Prestine... Clean and safe with all the amenities, plus much, much more! Breath taking view! Located minutes from the beach and minutes from town. With plenty activity in the area, Casa De Los Suenos was perfect to unwind and rejuvenate. Will defiantly return with much anticipation. 100% satisfied.
This is a spectacular property - gorgeous setting atop a mountain looking west toward the Pacific Ocean and the setting sun. Three large spacious bedrooms each with their own en-suite, fully equipped kitchen, large living and indoor dining room and a terrific outdoor lounge area with infinity pool, comfortable seating, pool table and ping pong - perfect for casual evenings enjoying burgers cooked on the built-in BBQ.
The town of Santa Teresa is a combination of beauty and brawn - spectacular scenery, great restaurants and spas, dusty roads with pot holes big enough to break a leg in! Well worth it as long as you're up for the physicality of the area - including the commute from San Jose which can be 4 - 5 hours by car and ferry, or maybe a couple of hours if you fly to and from the town of Tambor. All in all a great adventure - we'll definitely go back.
Great Vacation in Santa Teresa at Casa de los Suenos! We (a family of 5 from Houston with kids ranging from 12 y.o. to 15 months) just got back from a fantastic 4 night stay at Casa del los Suenos and we recommend this home and working with Hanit without any reservation.
The house is exactly as advertised in the pictures and the experience couldn't have been better. The drive to the house takes you up a steep road to the top of a mountain and through a stream. The view of the mountains and ocean from the house was gorgeous from the fresh mornings to the calming sunsets. Relaxing in the pool with the family, playing billiards and ping pong were among the best memories of the vacation. We saw iguanas in the driveway, monkeys in the trees above the house, and butterflies bigger than our hands throughout the day. The rooms were spacious and clean, the kitchen was large and fully-equipped. The house is secluded and private but thanks to Joanna, the wonderful housekeeper who lives in a home behind the house, you don't feel isolated.
Hanit does so much more than just provide a beautiful home. She helped us arrange some of the highlights of our trip and took care of us from start to finish. She put us in touch with drivers who helped us get around the country. When we walked into the car rental place in Santa Teresa (Budget), we were greeted with a warm hello and an offer for an upgrade because we are "Hanit's friends." She connected us with a great surfing instructor (Amit at De La Soul), and ordered a ridiculously delicious picnic from The Bakery (including a wicker picnic basket, real plates and cutlery, and a table cloth) that we took to the beach one afternoon.
Our five days there were amazing and we would go back in a heartbeat. Thank you Hanit!
The house is located at the top of a hill overlooking the ocean. Down the hill, is a charming beach town with lovely people and great food - a great place to vacation. The home is gorgeous, clean, spacious, comfortable, and welcoming. The home has air conditioning, making it comfortable year-round. The home has large, comfortable bedrooms with plenty of space. The kitchen has all the amenities needed. The view is gorgeous and wonderful to come home to or wake up to. If you are going to travel to Costa Rica, this is the place to stay!
Words can't begin describe this villa, staff, amenities and the view! Hanit, Shumlik and their assistant Julie are fabulous and have thought of everything you and your family would ever need while staying at their villa...and if you need something else, they will arrange it promptly. The view is absolutely breathtaking with the gorgeous sunset over the infinity pool and ocean. It was also an exciting time to see a dozen or so monkeys swinging through the trees down the hillside a few mornings just outside our shower. it was a perfect place for a family holiday with a pool and ping pong table and all the amenities for outdoor living. We all would go back in a heartbeat! Thank you to Hanit and Shumlik for bringing us into your villa and family
