Rodrigo's place is in a great location, near lovely cafes, surf shops and the beach. Well equipped kitchen too!The architecture was a highlight - however we were quite disappointed that it was covered in plastic tarps and we were not warned. Furthermore, the dome was quite filthy when we arrived - hair blocking the shower, sandy floors, food scraps on the benches. With a little more effort it would truly be a perfect place to stay!
The dome house was really cool, I've never seen anything like it. My wife and two-year-old arrived for two nights but decided to stay for three since we were having so much fun.
First of all, Marcela and Rodrigo are a lot of fun and their kids are just awesome. Our toddler was a little tentative the first night walking over a little bridge between the restaurant and the owner's home, so Ikaro and Amanda walked him over the bridge each holding one hand. Would have been an sweet pic to sum up our stay.
Aside from hanging out with the family and eating delicious food in the restaurant (Alma) we also loved the property. There is a grove of mango trees - one of which is in the yard behind the domes - and monkeys come most days to pass through. We saw a large group of around 20 with babies jumping or clinging to mama come right over our heads. Tiago (our kid) was screaming bobo ven; he thinks all monkeys are named bobo.
The property is towards the north end of the Santa Teresa strip. The beach running along the opposite side of the road is ideal for surfing, and at low tide ideal for swimming. At any tide however there are various areas where natural tide pools form and I've never seen Tiago happier than he was playing as water rushed in from crashing waves 20 meters away. I especially recommend the beach area near the road that is across from the empanaderia and adjacent to the yoga resort and restaurant.
The domehouse was great for what we were looking for! A short walk from the beach and a grocery store. We enjoyed cooking breakfast each morning, and some of Santa Teresa's restaurants each night. Renting an ATV for our time there definitely helped us get around, and the hosts were accommodating with allowing us to park it there. The passion fruit ceviche at their restaurant, Alma was one of our favorite dinners!
The Domehouse was awesome. We felt welcomed and safe during our stay with Rodrigo and his family. The home slept 4 comfortably with a clean bathroom and kitchen. We would stay at the Domehouse if ever in Playa Santa Teresa again.
We had a super stay. We love Santa Teresa and the Domehouse was perfect for our family. The Rodrigo family is awesome... Very helpful and friendly hosts.
I can't help but rave about our experience at The Domehouse. The house itself is beautiful, unique and well equipped with everything to make your stay a pleasant one: a great location (less then a 5 minute walk to the beautiful beach, and a short walk or drive to the "downtown" of Santa Teresa) comfortable beds, and a kitchen with all of the essentials. Nestled behind the home of Rodrigo and his family, and adjacent to the restaurant (Alma Villa) that they own and operate, The Domehouse is quiet (even when there was a DJ night at the restaurant one night!), private, and picturesque - surrounded by beautiful, lush foliage and equipped with a large shaded patio and hammock - a great place to relax after a day spent in the sun. Rodrigo and his family were friendly, gracious hosts - always stopping to say hi, help with directions, or just chat. We would highly recommend The Domehouse to anyone looking for the perfect place to stay in Santa Teresa - we couldn't have had a better experience! Thank you to Rodrigo, Marcella, and their restaurant staff and family for helping to make our trip so memorable!
Rodrigo and his family have an excellent establishment! The dome was perfect for our stay in Santa Teresa and our dinner at their restaurant (Alma) was the best we had all week! This beach town was the perfect fit for us. We spent all our days on the beach, ate lots of ceviche, and drank lots of amazing local coffee! We had a wonderful time and will absolutely stay here again if we make it back to Santa Teresa!
