Santa Teresa, Province of Puntarenas
This property is a gorgeous contemporary addition to Santa Teresa designed to be eco-friendly while also giving you all of the comforts of home. The large sliding doors and windows lining the walls of both stories make use of the ocean views and breezes and make you feel like you are nestled within the surrounding trees and flowering plants. This home was built in 2009 with an attention to detail to make your stay as comfortable as a 5 star hotel. The entire house and cabina are situated facing the West/Ocean, giving you views from every room of the many local trees and foliage, with glimpses of the glassy ocean crashing in the distance.

Spacious, comfortable interior with a nice pool, a separate studio, great second floor balcony and large deck across ocean side of house. Kitchen and dining layout offers indoor and outdoor options for eating. Convenient to everything in Santa Teresa (restaurants, grocery stores, bars etc) and nearby communities. Beautiful beach setting with great surf break and sunsets. Can't wait to return!

We really had a wonderful week enjoying all the comforts and amenities of this exceptionally clean home.
