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!

Management response:

So glad to hear that you enjoyed the surrounding restaurants, surf and sunsets! We look forward to your return!

Airport: Tambor Airport: 32.0 km
Ferry: Paquera: 64.0 km
You can fly into either of the international airports of San Jose or Liberia.
