This beautiful, rustic beachfront bungalow was built by our family, in front of the Pacific with one of the BEST views in Santa Teresa/Mal Pais areas, as we actually have a BEACH view in front.
This quaint rustic beach bungalow has a rustic feel with modern comfort.
A home made hardwood canopy queen sized bed faces the double doors to the sea.
Full sized kitchen with basic rustic cooking gear and utensils.
Private open bathroom inside casita with full shower , sinks, toilet.
Located under the shady almond trees, where monkeys linger daily, surrounded by flowers, breezes and hammocks. Next door you will find a lovely traditional cafe located under the same trees in front of the beach with surfboard rentals. We are a 2 min walk to a great local surf school if your interested in lessons.
We are also a short walk to the great restaurants of the North end of Santa Teresa like Florblanca and Milarepa.
A quick inexpensive taxi and you are in the center of town or anywhere you need to go as we have our own 4 full sized SUV Toyotas that seat 5. We can also arrange to pick you up from the local airport (Tambor) for $50 or the town bus-stops, or anywhere you like. Taxi rides in town one way range between $8.00-$20.

No big parties & no heavy drugs....Feel free to party, but don't bring it here please.
Cabina quiet hours are after 10pm-THANKS!
This is a relaxing Sand Beach Cabin retreat, we ask people to be respectful that we, and several others may be on the property in a nearby cabin as there are 4 cabinas in total.
Please keep the party elsewhere, but feel free to have guests over, make dinners, bonfires on the beach, try the cafe next door, and enjoy our beautiful location and country.
People who stay here either go to sleep early on the rhythms of the sun cycles or go out for their partying. We like to keep it a zen oasis and a place to relax. We ask if you do bring strangers to your cabin that you keep a eye on them at ALL times.
Thank you in advance for understanding.
Our stay was fantastic! Richard and his family put a lot of love into this great little bungalow and it really made our trip special. It's probably the best location on all of Santa Teresa--- right on the beach and next door to a super cool lounge spot with great food, drinks, and music. Everything was as described. Definitely would recommend!
My daughters and I decided to choose Richard's Casita on the beach for a monthlong retreat. We were delighted by the warmth Richard and his family have in caring for their guests. They are truly beautiful people, who maintain a high standard of cleanliness and comfort for their guests. We felt very at home, and safe. Highly recommend experiencing this sort of pura vida, it has the well-kept basics, and yet is very natural. Plus, one of the best breaks for surfers in Santa Teresa right outside the front door.
I am a local, born and raised in Costa Rica and grew up farming and horseback riding.
I currently own a beach front property where I live, with all my large extended family. We rent cabañas on the beach front, Email- (email hidden)

I am a avid surfer, having only learned a few years ago, speak Spanish & English and enjoy meeting new people from around the world.
