I have been to Santa Teresa many times over the past 7 years ( at least 20!), and stayed in a number of hotels, rentals, hostels and lodgings - Casa Pampa is easily my favorite.
There are three main reasons:
The location, the management and the accommodations.
The location is perfect - right in the middle of Santa Teresa and Malpais, it makes almost every place walkable and convenient. Its a stone's throw down a dirt side road which makes it hidden and peaceful but safe. Across the street from the side road entrance is a great little grocery, a local soda for local food, two outdoor restaurants and a place for great local live music.
In the other direction, just steps from Casa Pampa's gate is the beach, a popular surf break and the perfect place to grab a beer and watch the sun set.
The management is exceptional - they go out of their way to provide everything you or you and your family could need to create a memorable holiday. From arranging all kinds of tours and "quad" rentals, offering surf lessons, fishing and excursions, scheduling taxis, getting reservations, offering advice, or even just leaving you alone if that is what you need! If you talk with them about your needs they can make it happen. Staying at Casa Pampa is more like showing up in Costa Rica and staying at the house of some great friends than staying in a hotel! They keep the property pristine and running smoothly.
Accommodations are perfectly suited for this casual surf town- you have your own private little house with bedrooms, casual beds, private bathroom, full kitchen and living area - also both upstairs and downstairs accommodations have their own verandas, and the Casa Pampa property has an adorable area for eating, having small events, or just sitting and enjoying the nature all around it. A beautiful place, run by beautiful people, a home away from home in wonderful Santa Teresa!
