Private room 1mn walk to the beach

Villa - Private room · Malpais, Puntarenas, Costa Rica

Welcome to our family house, just 1min walk to the beach! We rent the 3 rooms to travellers who want to live the real "pura vida life style" for few days, sharing with them the kitchen, bathroom, laundry room and the big gardens in front and behind the house!

The Space

The house has 2 double rooms and one single room. The guests share the big kitchen, the bathroom, the laundry room and the great spaces for relax or stretch after sport.
What makes our location ideal is the fact that you're just in front of the Santa Teresa Beach access, really closed to the best surf spot here! It takes 30 second to reach the beach! And you'll be closed also to the shops, restaurants and night life, but surprisingly always in a peaceful place where you can stay in a hammock absorbing the animal sounds and relax.

Guest Access

My boyfriend is an expert mountain bike guide, if you like sport as we do, we can offer you mountain bike tours, or spearfishing tours too.
I'm an italian qualified masseuse, so you can also enjoy a great MASSAGE during your staying!

Interaction with Guests

Casa Amapola is a Family House: we live here with our dog River, so we share with the travellers our "pura vida life style" and we are always there for the guests!
Meals are not included, but we can cook and have dinners and party with guests like with friends, and share the cost!

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Unfortunately I was unable to make it the first night due to transportation issues out of my control, but I had a great time at Monica's place. It's in the best location, so close to beach and great surfing! Though Monica was out of town, Miguel helped me out and made sure I felt right at home. Definitely recommend!

  • This was the perfect stay for my first time in Costa Rica. I felt very comfortable and liked that it was clean. Close to everything you need and a friendly environment.

  • My Girlfriend and me stayed for a few days at Monicas and Suevos place. The rooms are bright, nice and clean with a fan and a moskito grid on the window. They were wonderful hosts that let you be part of their own pura vida lifestyle. We were cooking delicious food together, Suevos Barbecue skills are great and he knows where to buy or catch the freshest fish...
    Thank you so much!

  • I stayed with Monica and I really loved it. It 's an open house for everybody like a shared flat. It is really close to the beach and you can reach everything by feed. The Room was spacious and clean. It was a good choice for me.

  • Monica was a great host and the house is the perfect location for Santa Teresa!

    We stayed there 6 nights and had an amazing time. Monica and everyone else that was staying at the house were entertaining, inviting, friendly and made us feel like we were at home. They knew so many people in the community that we felt like we had 20 new friends right away!

  • We loved our stay at Casa Amapola! Our only regret is that we could not stay longer. Monica & Svevo were excellent hosts and invited us into their home with open arms!
    We were only able to stay one night but Monica & Svevo invited us to various activities throughout our week stay in Santa Theresa. As well as being great at making us feel comfortable, they were also very knowledgeable about the area and were able to recommend great restaurants, places to hear live music and a good place to rent a surf board!
    The house and room were very nice and clean and the location is amazing being so close to the beach. The vibe at the house is very mellow and creates a relaxing environment. We very much enjoyed our stay and can't wait to go back to stay with them again when we return to Santa Theresa!!

  • Monica and Svevo are amazing hosts. We had such a great time in their place, it's pretty basic but has all comforts and the atmosphere makes it perfect. Its very close to the beach and supermarket and there is good wifi in the house. Our hosts took us spear fishing, surfing and to local attractions. They also cook dinner for everyone almost every night and there is a great vibe whilst chilling on their terrace or on the hammocks whilst enjoying a freshly caught meal, like sushi or a nice barbecue. Definite value for money, as a well travelled couple we can recommend their place 100%. We are very much looking forward to our next stay with them when we return to Costa Rica!

  • Monica was a lovely host - she was really friendly and clearly knows the area really well. Her apartment is cozy and clean, with a wonderful bathroom and lots of her own personality put into it. I would highly recommend Monica's place!

  • I took the bus from Cobano to Santa Teresa at 2:30pm, and even when I had the address well described on my email, Monica was waiting for me right in front of the bus stop. She gave me a warm welcome and we walked to her house, made me feel like in home. Her boyfriend was there, very nice guy by the way, and also River (their dog) gave me the welcome to the house, such a cute dog!

    She showed me the property, the house and my room. There was a nice smell in the air and relaxing Indian music, and by that time, I had the chance to met the other two guests of the house, very nice people.

    The place is really close to everything you will need and they will be happy to provide information hints and tips for doing activities in Santa Teresa.

Hey guys! I moved to Costa Rica in april2013 with my boyfriend Svevo and my dog River. I was looking for a different life style, far from stress and sad faces, and here I found it! I can't live without: travel... mountains (I know, in CostaRica there are not big mountains... but I said I love travel, no?)... friends... sport... and give massages! I really love to know new people who want to share with me their life experiences... with our guests i'd like to have a friendly relationship!
