The listing described was very accurate for what we experienced. Unfortunately, the Ginger Cafe was closed for the low season so we missed out on her delicious breakfast & lunch (that multiple local people in town raved about). The apartment is very centrally located so it made grocery shopping, eating out, surf lessons and relaxing on the beach very easy all with in walking distance. Be sure to bring cash with you as no where accepts cards (we made that mistake). The apartment had all the basics and was a nice home base for the week. However, I would not recommend if you plan to spend most of your time indoors. Relaxing on the hammock in the open aired living space was awesome but the bed was very uncomfortable and did not have the proper sheets. Also, the window in the bedroom does not have a screen so for bug and security purposes we closed it each night which made the room quite stuffy. But the experience was still great. Santa Teresa is a wonderful little beach town!
We had a great stay at Laura's place in Santa Teresa! The apartment was nice, clean and close to the beach. Laura is a very nice and helpful host. The apartment is however close to the main road so we hear the trafic also during the night but apart from that the place is great!
Laura's open and spacious loft was a delight! Very close walk to beach, market and restaurants. The place is very clean and safe. I would highly recommend staying here. Thanks again! Pura vida
We had a great time in Laura's place and in Santa Teresa! The place is exactly as listed and really easy to find.
The only but is that, as the listing says, there's no AC. So if you're sort of sensitive to the heat and need your AC dose from time to time, you might be too warm from 2-4 pm on the non rainy days. The rest of the day, the fans were very helpful!
Laura's place was fantastic! Jacopo warmly welcomed us when we arrived and regularly checked in to make sure we had everything we needed.
The apartment looks exactly like the photos. We spent hours lounging in the hammock reading and looking at the birds, squirrels, and even iguanas in the trees! You don't need a car; the beach, grocery store, and plenty of fantastic restaurants are just steps away. We would definitely book again.
My boyfriend and I traveled around Costa Rica for 10 days and spent the last leg of our trip in Santa Teresa. Laura was out of the country so her husband, Jacopo, hosted us for the two nights we stayed there. He was extremely helpful, friendly, and seemed to genuinely care about our happiness and well being. For example, he arranged for us to borrow an ATV from his friend at a low cost and when we asked him about a snorkeling destination, he even lent us his personal snorkeling gear! The apartment was even better than shown in photos! It was very open and it instantly made us feel at home. Overall, we had a blast in Santa Teresa and we would love to stay at Laura and Jacopo's apartment again!
Our stay with Laura was perfect. She was a wonderful and available host. The space is amazing, clean, and in a wonderful area convenient to the beach and walking distance of lots of food and shops.
