Your place feels like a home... very quaint artistic touches. The house is cozy and comfortable. It is close to the beach and restaurants... Close to downtown Santa Teresa and also close only 10 min. drive to pristine Playa Hermosa. It was also great to have beach access just 200 mts. away, but do check the tide schedule because the currents can be pretty tough. Our whole family enjoyed the outdoor deck and the pool. Thanks for your hospitality!

The place was great, the pool was great, close enough to one side of town and restaurants and a minisuper. The neighbors are a bit close and the house shares a wall. Our kids are 6 and wake up early and we were self conscious about the noise. There were sheets but no blankets. This was fine for me but my wife got a bit uncomfortable. We probably could of emailed the property manager but didn't bother. It would have been nice to just have them. A couple of small things broke around the house and the handyman/ caretaker Deiby promptly fixed them and was an all around nice guy. He also helped arrange a quad tour which was fun. I'd stay at Villa Lagarto again for sure.

Response from Karin:
Hi Nash- so sorry, I wish you would have asked for blankets. We have comforters available in the tall unlocked hallway closet, we just don't usually leave them out as it's so hot...we will start! Also, no need to worry about the noise. Our neighbors actually have 2 small kids and we never hear them, the construction is super thick. Hope you weren't too inconvenienced and enjoyed your stay regardless ;)

Loved Karen's house, was perfect for 2 of us, great for my son morning surfing, very well centered so we could even walk or take a short drive to eat at near by restaurants. Keys, check in , check out was easy, Gal the local manager was very attentive , we got very good info and suggestions from her during our stay... actually she was keen to assist in anything we needed. We had great time and very good experience staying at Karen's home in Santa. Will do everything to get there again soon. Oded

we had a great time at villa lagarto! the house is smack dab in the middle of the main strip just a bit up a hill. the house had everything we could've asked for and then some. we were given great suggestions by our host and ended up really happy with our choice.

Karin's house is wonderful! We stayed for two months during the green season and everything was perfect. The house is extremely comfortable and we really enjoyed the large covered patio and beautiful pool. The property managers are excellent and responded immediately to all of our needs. This house is truly in the best location in Santa Teresa- just a three minute walk to the best surf break!

Karin's Villa in Santa Teresa was pretty awesome. You can't beat the location. Restaurants, shops and bars are nearby. Not to mention the beach was literally a few minutes week (you cross the main street and there's a pathway that leads to the beach). I was with a group of five people and house fit us comfortably. I would definitely come back here if I ever find myself in Santa Teresa.
