Fronting the stunning white sand beach of Santa Teresa, Costa Rica and backed by lush tropical jungle, the four-bedroom Calista Boutique Beachfront Villa offers a vacation experience like no other. Step out your front door and be right on the sandy beach facing the deep blue Pacific Ocean. Calista Boutique Beachfront Villa is tucked in a hidden bay off the main road in the center of Santa Teresa. Very private, yet accessible, Calista is close to shops and restaurants and all of the best surfing spots. Even better, you have a front row seat for Santa Teresa’s famous sunsets. Framed by shady coconut palms, the villa features four separate bedroom units, each with its own private bathroom, and can accommodate eight persons comfortably. A roofed open-air kitchen and living area indulge you...

A roofed open-air kitchen and living area indulge you in the comforts of luxury tropical living. Dining seating is for up to 10 persons and a BBQ station is perfect for sunset feasting. Beautifully handcrafted from locally-sourced tropical woods, the villa is elegantly appointed with luxury décor. An infinity pool in a direct line to the sea runs down the middle of the villa. Lounge chairs and hammocks complete your relaxation. Our dedicated concierge helps make your vacation even more extraordinary. How about gourmet meals cooked and served by our private chef? Or horses brought to your door for a ride along the beach? Our concierge can help you arrange everything from tours to rental cars and other transportation. Its privileged spot in Santa Teresa makes Calista Boutique Beachfront Villa your ideal Costa Rica vacation getaway. Amid nature’s spectacular beauty, the only sounds you will hear are ocean waves and perhaps the occasional call of a howler monkey in the trees. This charming seaside paradise shines like a pearl.

About the neighborhood
Calista is the perfect romantic getaway for couples or for those simply looking for tranquility and inner peace. It is located in the center of Santa Teresa, close to all amenities, yet remains secluded and private. The only sound you will hear is that of the ocean swell directly in front of you, perhaps disturbed by the occasional call of a howler monkey.
