Interaction with Guests
Greg stops in on almost a daily basis just to check the property and make sure the guests are happy. The caretakers live onsite to help, clean, and attend to your what ever you need.
Santa Teresa is a sleepy little surf town with gorgeous beaches, a young healthy vibe, tons of yoga available, and beautiful natural surroundings.
You can stay here on foot or rent-a-car. Many people just rent bikes and enjoy the town that way. I did it that way for years...
Not a party location. We cater to a mellow vibe, families, surfers etc. We try to maintain a quiet environment in the night so people can enjoy their days... If you are a partier, we just ask that you have respect for the neighboring houses. :)
The house was great and very close to the beach. Greg and the people that take care of the houses were very nice. Definitely will come back and recommend it!
My family and I were super happy staying here! The villas are immaculately clean, generously sized and very well looked after. The location is perfect since just a five minutes walk to the stunningly beautiful beach and all sorts of shops and restaurants nearby.
Greg is indeed a super host as he was extremely helpful with giving information of all sorts, organising things for us and simply interesting and fun to chat with. Definitely a 100% recommendation from our side.
We were 5 people from Norway traveling together, and we stayed in villa papaya and villa carambola. We knew we chose the right place to stay the minute we walked in the gate to Villas solar. The place is beautiful and the houses have all you can ask for in a vacation house. The kitchen is fully equipped, we enjoyed cooking our own food there and eating it out on the patio. Perfect with the AC in the bedrooms. The place looked even better in real life than in the pictures, and we had no complaints during our whole visit. The housedog, Luna, is the best dog ever! I really enjoyed our morning cuddles.
There is an excellent smoothieshop right next door, that we ended up visiting at least twice a day. And we also rented boards from Kina surfshop the whole week, nice shop with helpful people. We went in there to change boards severeal times throughout the week, which was no problem.
Greg came by the place daily and was always available on the phone if we needed anything. He helped us with taxiservice and my luggage that came a week late from the airport in San Jose. Really nice and helpful guy that lets you know everything you need to have a perfect vacation in the paradise that is Santa Teresa. Perfect waves and weather everyday. If we ever come back, we will definitly stay in Villas Solar again! Thanks Greg, Pura Vida
So much LOVE for this place. From the moment we stepped into Villas Solar we knew we hadn't chosen poorly. Greg and his caretakers were extremely helpful, attentive, and kind. Being first timers we had a million questions, and he answered them with careful thought and lightness. The location couldn't be more perfect as we had a few beginner as well as intermediate surfers. The beach is super close and you're between two rocky points that stretch 1km of pure sandy, palm treed bliss. Not to mention, you're surrounded by the best part of Santa Teresa sodas, shops, and markets. The unit we stayed in was amazing (Papaya) ... Good sized bedrooms with a/c and a lovely kitchen with awesome giant showers. Almond and mango trees surround a peaceful patio that we spent a good amount of time siesta-ing on.
Luna was definitely one of the highlights. I think we'll miss that pup just as much as the town itself. Gracias Greg y Pura Vida x
Villa Papaya is lovely. It is super clean, very safe and really well stocked with everything you need to cook.
The on site caretakers are very pleasant and available.
We didn't actually get to meet with Greg but he was often about while we were at the beach. I would definitely recommend staying here.

About the Host, Greg
I am a die hard surfer, born and raised in New York and moved to San Diego after college. i found Santa Teresa in 1998 and fell in love. The waves are excellent, the people are amazing, and the tropical setting is one of the most beautiful in the world. cant see myself living anywhere else!!!
