  • My boyfriend and I stayed 5 amazing days at Villa Carambola and can not say enough good things about it!
    The villa is ideal for a couple to stay in, so clean and outfitted with all that you need. The caretaker family next door was so nice and helpful and Luna their dog was the sweetest thing ever! Greg was out of town, but Laura was amazing and showed us everything we needed and made us feel right at home.
    The location is perfect, a stones throw from the beach access path and literally right near some of the best little shops, sodas and restaurants/bars. And the town...WOW! The beach is breathtaking - especially at sunset - perfect for walking along and my boyfriend took advantage of the great surfing. We had amazing meals overlooking the ocean and were very pleased with Greg's handy information that was provided in the villa, it was put to good use.
    We would definitely stay with Villa Solar again and would recommend it to anyone heading to Santa Teresa! I already want to go back (just got home today).

  • We had a great honeymoon stay at Greg's place. It was a safe relaxing home away from home. Great location in Santa Teresa and we look foreword to coming back again. Thank you for everything!

  • First of all, ladies, I booked this place, without consulting my girlfriend! She was a little perturbed that I didn't consult with her as the place hadn't been reviewed yet. WE were immediately relieved on arrival to find the villa nestled safely within the confines of a very safe compound guarded by a dog and a heavy metal sliding door, 9 feet high to keep people out.
    The villa is very lovely. It is minutes from the beach. While there we enjoyed the local activities: horse back riding, massage therapy, and surfing. It was a perfect way to start our Costa Rican vacation. We also stayed one evening in the main house. The main house was twice as big as the villa with two bedrooms.
    The host family doesn't speak much English. They couldn't be nicer. The host family has a dog named Luna, so you get a temporary pet. Luna was difficult to leave behind, as was Santa Teresa.
    Greg was out of town, however his friend Drew helped us out. Drew was a fount of knowledge, from surf reports, to knowing about the ferry schedule, and local eats. Drew was very nice as well.
    Needless to say, I would stay here again, and again, and again.

    Oh, and the surfing was awesome.

    Pura Vida.

I am a die hard surfer, born and raised in New York and moved to San Diego after college. i found Santa Teresa in 1998 and fell in love. The waves are excellent, the people are amazing, and the tropical setting is one of the most beautiful in the world. cant see myself living anywhere else!!!
