“Marvellous house beautiful location”

Stayed at this house for four days it was wonderful and exceeded expectations. Any time you stay at a house with a moat should be considered epic. My friends wee blown away because they had no idea what I had rented and kept it a secret until the last minute. The pool right next door was perfect and the banana bar was great too if we didn't feel like cooking. It was hard to leave to adventure out while we were there and the surf right out side was perfect!
Thank you again, I hope to be back again someday!

“A small piece of paradise”

We (family of 4) stayed four nights. The villa is located on a site with 4 other houses close by and a small hotel next door. The hotel is very quiet and was not a nuissance what so ever. The pool that the house has access to is on the hotel side and shared with their guests. The pool is very clean and well maintained. The access to the beach was perfect, there was a great break for surfing right in front of the house, so need to walk half a mile down the beach. Their is a grocery store, cafe and surf shop all within a 3 minute walk. Wthin the vegetation around the house we saw a few Iguana, lots of geckos and wide variety of birds. We can't wait to go back.

“amazing beachfront”
Reviewed August 14, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

let me start by SAYING THAT I was amazed by the hospitality of pia and pini.
We stayed there two nights the Villa was amazing.we arrived at night after a long drive from Puerto Viejo, pini was waiting for us @ the villa.
The outdoor had views of waves, palm trees, many birds, iguanas and the surrounding paradise! The awesome outdoor shower helped us remove the salt and sand from our fantastic beach time,the inside of the villa is beautiful and rustic.if you are traveling to santa Teresa this is the Vila that you want to be. We had a wonderful time thank you very much for the hospitality we definitely be back.

“Beachfront Palm Villa - Purely Enjoyable”
Reviewed January 26, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

people found this review helpful

The Beachfront Palm Villa allows you to relax and enjoy Pura Vida, the beauty that is Playa Santa Teresa.
After a long day’s drive from Puerto Viejo de Talamanca to Puntarenas, and an incredibly beautiful ferry ride to Paquera, the 4 of us began a long venture to Mal Pais/Santa Teresa in a compact car (because of a mix-up in Adobe Rent a Car reservations). I don’t recommend making that trip in a day (from PV to ST), and I would not go to the Nicoya Peninsula again without an SUV! The already infamous rough dirt and dusty roads live up to their reputation. Saying that… the drive to Mal Pais/Santa Teresa is absolutely worth it!!
Our stay began with a greeting from Pia moments after calling her. She let us in through the gate, gave us the keys and a complete tour of the property, along with helpful hints and advice about dining, shopping and the playa itself. Immediately, the four of us fell in love with the outdoor space.
The house is welcoming and a work of fine craftsmanship. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is adequate, but we all agreed that the shower was probably the best indoor attribute! The back bathroom was roomy, well lit and the shower was huge with great water pressure! Cleaning service came daily and their presence was practically unnoticeable, however, the cleaning was always great.
The outdoor space had views of waves, palm trees, many birds (including our favorite sassy green parakeets), iguanas and the surrounding paradise! The awesome outdoor shower helped us remove the salt and sand from our fantastic beach time. We used the outdoor table for meals including the unbelievably, outrageously delicious meal prepared for us by Chef Gregorio (recommended/arranged with the help of Pia). The hammocks, rattan oversized chair and the four “Caribbean Adirondack” chairs were part of the comfort that helped us reach complete relaxation.
Playa Santa Teresa isn’t for everyone. The dirt roads with the dust and zooming quads may put some folks off. The restaurants were delicious (The Bakery provided a wonderful breakfast every morning we were there), the fruits at the markets were amazingly fresh and the people were all friendly. If you need some further info, go to Jobbies Surf Shop.
After 5 nights at the Palm Villa, we decided Santa Teresa was for us!
