I stayed at Laura's house for a week with one of my friends to do some surfing in Santa Teresa. Our experience staying here exceeded our expectations. Normally I wouldn't take the time to write a review but I know the reviews I read helped tremendously. Everything here is fact and I am doing this on my own- Laura did not even say anything about me writing a review. The house is perfect for 2-4 people. It is open and accessible. There is a kitchen equipped with everything you need if you want to cook. There is a relaxing dining room. I'm 6'2" tall and comfortably slept on one of the smaller mattresses every night. There's no AC but it did not matter it was still comfortable. The shower has hot and cold water. We enjoyed hanging outside where there was a small table and a bed underneath a canopy. Laura is a sweetheart. She owns the Ginger Cafe in the lot and her house is also there. Ginger cafe has absolutely delicious food. The location is perfect as well. It is right on the main road. It is a 5 minute walk to the beautiful beach of Santa Teresa. There are surf shops everywhere where you can rent boards or get necessities. The super market is 100 meters away. All of the best restaurants are in walking distance. The town itself can be a bit expensive but that's vacation. Some restaurants change the dollar to colones exchange rate so be mindful. Overall, you get a great deal on the accommodations staying at Laura's. You will have all the privacy you need. I highly recommend this to anyone. And you're also in paradise, so that is always a plus. Thanks again Laura!!

Laura was great! She was accommodating, let us get in early, helped us get around the town and provided recommendations on where to eat and how to get around. The apartment description was spot on. Their iced coffee is dangerously delicious!

We had a wonderful time at Laura's place. Laura was very helpful when we needed it and her home was comfortable for our family of 4. We will definitely stay here when we return!

We had a great stay with Laura and Jacobo. They are very kind hosts and always open to chat and share recommendations. The kitchen is very well equipped and the house is good for couples or a family looking for minimal, yet comfortable accommodations.They rent out a few apartments (ground floor and 2nd floor) on the property, but you still have privacy thanks to the trees and curtains. The fans were a huge help and Laura even replaced the one in the living room, as it was not working when we first arrived. The nights were warm but we managed with the ceiling fans.Thanks for a great stay!

We stayed with Laura and her husband for 1 week. They are both lovely, warm people and gracious hosts. Having lived in Santa Teresa for about 15 years, they had great recommendations on where to eat and things to do. The apartment itself was comfortable and within a very short walk to a number of restaurants, two small supermarkets, surf board rentals, and the gorgeous beach. The outdoor space includes a small dining table and a chaise/bench. Curtains and trees maintain a good level of privacy in the outdoor space, which faces the main house's backyard and outdoor space. The common area is spacious, the bedrooms are small but comfortable. There is a large overhead fan in both bedrooms that move quite a bit of air. As the listing notes, there is no a/c in the bedrooms. If you are used to sleeping in the heat, then you'll be fine, though if you want to keep the windows open at night, be aware that Santa Teresa is very dusty in the dry season. All in all, Laura's place is as described and the value for what you get is very good. Her listing description is accurate and we would recommend this place to budget travelers who want to stay somewhere comfortable, clean, minimal, and central to Santa Teresa. Thanks Laura, we loved meeting you!
