Gumbo Limbo is a boutique bed & breakfast located in the hills of Santa Teresa, just 600 meters to Santa Teresa beach and town. Along with stunning ocean views, Gumbo Limbo's central, hilltop location provides seclusion- a nice break from the bustle of town, while being only a 2 minute drive to the beach and main road. As we are situated on a large hill, a 4x4 vehicle, which is generally better for Costa Rica roads, is needed to reach our property.
Each of our villas is surrounded by tropical lush nature, giving total privacy and a real feeling of being in the jungle, while still having complete comfort. From every corner of our property, you can find amazing ocean and mountain views. Our beautiful infinity pool is the perfect spot to relax and watch the best sunsets Santa Teresa has to offer.
Breakfast included: A full daily breakfast with fresh fruits/yogurt/granola, scrambled eggs and gallo pinto (Costa Rican traditional breakfast) is served daily in our ocean view dining area and is included in the rate.
Location: We are located 600 meters from Santa Teresa Beach and town, just 2 minutes drive to the beach access road, many restaurants and cafes. As we are situated on a hill, we recommend a 4x4 vehicle to reach us, which is generally better for Costa Rica roads. We are happy to assist with ATV/quad or car rental if you need, and can also help if you have any questions about tours, activities or surf lessons.

Just have fun!
I cannot recommend this place enough!!! By far the best place I've ever stayed in while traveling! The gumbo limbo was really a slice of paradise... We're already planning a trip back as soon as possible. Juan was an incredible host and really went ABOVE AND BEYOND any of our expectations. We arrived by bus and after 18 hours of travelling he was kind enough to pick us up on the main road in Santa Teresa at midnight. He gave us a tour of the town and helped us with everything from renting a quad to ordering food. THE VIEW OH. MY. GOD. Incredible. We spent alot of time on the patio that overlooks the ocean drinking beers. And the balcony. I can't say enough about it. My biggest regret is not staying there longer! 3 days was not enough. And the animals were so friendly and snuggly. The daily cleanings were AMAZING. We probably showered a total of 10 times while we were there just so we could go in the outdoor shower. This is place everyone should visit! And don't make the same mistake we did, STAY A WHILE!
Great place to stay with a beautiful view. Though you need a 4x4 to get there and you won't find that out until you reserve and the guy contacts you for the first time and lets you know that you will need it, and trust me, you do. once you get there the room is small but cozy and you can see the ocean view from the shower too. The infinity pool also over looks the ocean, but the sunset is blocked by the trees.
El lugar es increíble ... Es un camino difícil de alcanzar para quien no tiene un coche 4X4, pero vale la pena por la vista y por la arquitectura que se ha diferenciado por los baños al aire libre, que es apropiada por el clima, el cual tiene la consecuencia de la ausencia de olor molde, una característica típica de otros lugares que nos quedamos cerca de las playas. Para aquellos que esperan un servicio de hotel se olvide! La propuesta es como visitar la casa de un amigo, algo mas informal. Juan tiene un perro y un gato muy amables que rompe corazones, fue muy atento con nosotros, la cocina está bien equipada y nos dejó la voluntad de gestionar donde producimos increíbles comidas que compartimos como una família! Estamos muy agradecidos, De cierto volveriamos con mucho gusto!
Das war ein toller Aufenthalt bei Juan. Der Ausblick ist wunderbar, die Location chillig, die Zimmer super, mit outdoor Dusche. Das Frühstück war wunderbar. Du bist mitten in der Natur und kannst eine Menge Tiere beobachten, insbesondere Vögel, Schmetterlinge usw.. Der Sound der Wellen ist einmalig, man höhrt keine Straße wie unten in Santa Teresa. Ein mal sollte man den Weg runter und wieder hoch zu Fuß machen. Danke an Juan und das ganze Team für diesen unvergesslichen Aufenhalt.
Awesome view, outside bathroom very pleasant. Priscilla and Larry were very helpfull. Without forgetting "Wilberth" the lovely cat who slept with us!
Thank you for everything! You contribute to make our holidays wonderful!
Alejandro was fantastic from the start. We had trouble initially finding the location but with his help we found it. The spot was chill with a great view of the ocean. Breakfast every morning was delicious. Everyone was super friendly and helpful. The cat was awesome sauce. Definitely recommend 4x4 SUV if visiting this location due to a massive hill. We really enjoyed our stay.
This location is down towards the less touristy section of santa teresa offering beautiful views and quite nights. The room was comfartable and clean. The staff and Juan were very friendly and helpful and we loved Wilbur the orange kitty!
There was a lot of talk in other reviews of suggesting a car or quad. You really do need one. We hicked this hill with our backpacks and it was very challenging, very hot, required boots and made coming and going during the day undesirable. You will enjoy what this property has to offer so much more if you have transportation.

About the Host, Juan
Mi adicción es surfear, lo que me ha llevado estos últimos años a distintos lugares y he aprendido que viajando se conoce gente que vale la pena. Espero ahora poder tener la oportunidad de hospedar a esas personas!
