Interaction with Guests
I stop in almost daily to check on the property. Guests can always reach me otherwise by phone, email, or asking the onsite caretaker to contact me.
Santa Teresa is noted as one of the most beautiful beaches in central America and is ideal for both beginner and advanced surfers. There are many surf schools and also hidden surf spots still left uncrowded.
With many ethnicities settling here, there is excellent cuisine from Italian, Japanese, Argentina, Spanish, and French. We are located beside 2 typical Costa Rican restaurants and just down the road from the super market.
Buses are available in town. Rent a cars are not needed but can be helpful for getting here and about. Lots of people just rent bikes or atvs.
We look for mellow guests here in search of good surf, relaxing beaches and a tropical setting. We ask our guests to be respectful of the others renting in the other villas, be eco friendly, and always ask for advice if you like. We are here to help!!!
This place is awesome! Centrally located, short walk to the beach, restaurants and local market. It was the perfect place to call home base as we explored Santa Teresa and the surrounding areas. Greg is extremely hospitable and gave us all the info we needed to have an amazing honeymoon in Costa Rica!! Can't wait to come back to this town and this house! Pura vida!
Staying with Greg was a blast and wonderful experience. Greg's home is in the perfect location in Santa Teresa. Just a hop across the road from the beach with great surf, close to delicious restaurants, surf shops, and more. There is also free parking on site inside the gate if you decide to rent a car. Greg was very kind and accommodating and helped us make the most of our stay with suggestions for what to do around the area such as renting ATVs to drive to the waterfall in Montezuma. He was communicative and helpful with directions. We were so comfortable during our stay as the home has the perfect layout with a fully equipped kitchen and beautiful outdoor seating with a hammock and precious dog named Luna. Highly recommend staying here!! :)

The villa was great! Greg met me to check me in upon arrival, and the place exceeded my expectations. It was comfortable, clean, super close to the beach, and right up the street from restaurants and shops. I loved Santa Teresa and would stay here again if I went back. It was quiet for the most part, and I loved that his dog would come hang out with me when I was laying around on the porch. It was overall a great experience.
I loved my time at Villa Carambola. The property was well maintained and had everything I needed for a pleasant stay. The caretakers on site were sweet and friendly. The location of the Villa could not be beat. Right next to tipico restaurants, cafes, markets, shops and the beach.
Greg was a lovely, friendly accommodating host. He was quick to answer any questions I had. I saw him in passing on a few occasions (he saw me only once) which gave my stay a sense of "community". I would without a doubt stay here again. I had a friend stop by who was staying at another AirB&B in Playa Hemosa and she kept raving o how I got the better deal for price, location, and amenities. Don't hesitate; stay here if you have the chance.
We stepped off the bus from San Jose into a beautiful paradise. The accommodation in Carabola was amazing... Just like the photos. Clean, fresh and well equipped. We really enjoyed our stay and the location was perfect. Close to the nicest stretch of beach and a range of restaurants. Greg was really kind and accommodated an extra day because our flights were delayed - thank you so much.
We only wish we could have stayed longer.
Greg was the perfect host. I had questions before our trip regarding the ferry, directions, and exchanging money. He got back to us right away, giving us the ins and outs and couldn't have asked for more.
