  • Spacious and lovely room with an wonderful view, very quiet. Very confortable bed. close to the beach (5 min walking).
    However we had troubles accessing and parking in front of the house even with a 4DW since the road is rather bad. The atmosphere into the room was a little bit suffocating since there is no air conditioning and the fan did not help much.

    Response from Ari:

    thank you guillaume, glad you liked your room!
    the heat ... dont forget this is the hottest month of the year! not much i can do about it. usually the place has a nice breeze specially in the upstairs bedrooms. so hopefully next time you come you can experience better sleep:)

  • Ari's place is as wonderful as the pictures imply. Ari is a great host, you don't feel alone, but at the same time you can enjoy your privacy. We can only highly recommend to stay at here place!

  • Ari is an awesome host! And on top of that her place is beautiful and instantly felt like home. Ari was very helpful with any question or requests that we had and she makes an awesome breakfast. It was the perfect way to start each day. The rooms have a beautiful ocean view, and being slightly set back from the main road it is quiet and calm. It was so great we extended our stay by 5 nights!
    If there's one place you should stay in Santa Teresa it is with Ari at her beautiful home and with her lovely pets!

  • We had a very relaxing time at Ari s place! its a 5 minutes walk to the beach, so very close but because its 100 mts up the hill, theres no dust - which in the dry season is crucial! the view from the room we stayed in was very pretty and the rooms is very airy, which is very nice after having walked up the steep road in the heat. we used the kitchen to make some dinner and lunch, which is well equipped and tidy. jummy breakfast made by Ari with humming birds flying in the garden- lovely to stay there.

  • My family and I had the pleasure of staying at Ari's Casa Colina in Playa Carmen over the holidays. The house is beautifully constructed, clean and airy. The kitchen and outdoor living and eating areas are perfect. It is located about 100 meters up a hill so it is out of the dusty and sometimes noisy main street, but easily accessible to groceries, restaurants and the beach. Ari was available when we had questions, but very respectful of our privacy and family time. She also has a horseback riding business and we were able to ride on the beach at sunset. Highly recommended place to stay and hostess. I would suggest having a four wheel drive car for the last 25 meters of the driveway to the house.
