fresh and clean room with ocean view and equipped with a king bed (or 2 single beds), ceiling fan, large mosquito net, room safe and mini fridge
the house is located in central playa carmen area, max 5 walking minutes to the beach, stores and restaurants. just enough up the hill to get a good breeze, with great mountain and ocean views!
breakfast is included during the holiday/high season weeks and outside these dates guests have access to our large fully equipped kitchen. there are outside and inside hang out spaces (hammock/launge chairs/large dining table) for everyone to use and
there is wireless internet thoughout the property.
playa carmen beach is a large, white sand, surf and swim beach between mal pais and santa teresa beach.
many shops, supermarkets and restaurants are in walking distance. you also have several 'eat and launge' places to choose from that are located directly on the beach.
there is many places rent to rent bikes and
4 wheelers (quads), also 3 car rental companies close by.
If you decide to come by car, it would have to be a 4x4 in order to make it up our hill. its just 50meters but a bit steep.
we are in a pretty quiet neighborhood, thus prefer groups of people that want to relax and enjoy being close to nature rather than a party group.
Ari is a lovely person and makes a healthy and delicious breakfast each morning. The house is perfectly located up the hill so you get both a magnificent scenery and the proximity to the beach. The room itself was spotlessly clean and nicely decorated. This we can absolutely recommend to stay with Ari.
P.S. We really loved the dogs!
Ari's house is elegant and comfortable, with a stunning view. It's a very short walk from all local amenities. I felt welcome there and would highly recommend it.
My boyfriend and I felt very comfortable at Ari's home. I loved the feeling of being outside when we were inside. I was travelling Costa Rica for a week before arriving so Ari's home cooked breakfasts were amazing! We had an early zip line tour one morning and Ari was very accommodating in making breakfast early so we could eat before leaving. I found the description of the house accurate and was possibly even better than I expected. The area wasn't what we had expected and since we are not surfers the small surf town feel wasn't for us but I could definitely see it's appeal to others. Overall we really enjoyed Casa Colina, Ari and her animals!
Ari's place was great to stay at. It was clean and in a great location, steps from the beach and the center of town. She was very accommodating when we arrived quite a bit later than expected and every morning cooked delicious homemade breakfasts. We were provided beach towels and when our sink clogged it was fixed by the time we returned from our day at the beach. She also has two adorable pups that we couldn't get enough of. I'd recommend staying here on a trip the Mal Pais area!
I really enjoyed my stay. It's a cool spot. Ari was super quick to respond when we needed an extra night stay, cheers!
Ari's house is absolutely beautiful, and I had a fantastic time staying there for a week in April. She was incredibly welcoming, and made me feel at home from the second I arrived (and her 3 dogs are loving and wonderful). The house is architecturally stunning, and it was a joy to spend time relaxing in that environment. The kitchen is fully equipped and I was able to cook for myself every day. The bedrooms are large, the beds are extremely comfortable, and the bathrooms are very artistic but still completely functional. The house sits on a hill (so it's away from the noise of the main street), but it's only a short 3min walk to the beach!! I absolutely hope to return; Ari's house is a gem.
Ari is an awesome host! And on top of that her place is beautiful and instantly felt like home. Ari was very helpful with any question or requests that we had and she makes an awesome breakfast. It was the perfect way to start each day. The rooms have a beautiful ocean view, and being slightly set back from the main road it is quiet and calm. It was so great we extended our stay by 5 nights!
If there's one place you should stay in Santa Teresa it is with Ari at her beautiful home and with her lovely pets!
