Consider The Jungle House, a unique Santa Teresa vacation rental for your Costa Rica vacations. Right in the heart of town, a 5-minute walk to the beach, restaurants & markets, it's your ideal home base. It's perfect for families & groups of friends.
The Perfect Home Base for Your Adventure – Walk to the Beach & Main Street!
Your group is big and adventurous. Together, you like to try new local dishes, surf the best breaks, zip-line through the jungle, and wake up to the sound of howler monkeys in the trees just outside your window.
Standard hotel accommodations or resorts with pre-planned activities may work for some groups, but yours would rather have flexible schedules to fill with your own excursions, bold, rustic décor—including dining tables shaped like surfboards and a private outdoor bamboo shower—and access to the action combined with Zen-like seclusion.
If this sounds like your family, then The Jungle House in Santa Teresa Costa Rica, is your place. Located smack in the middle of a stunning trifecta of ocean, jungle, and the town’s main street, The Jungle House simultaneously offers easy access to local attractions and a sense of privacy and seclusion.
At 3400 square feet, with seven bedrooms and room for ten to 14 guests, we are by far the largest rental in the heart of town. And, one of the most affordable.
Unlike other area accommodations, there’s no hill to contend with when you want to get some sun or test the surf. Just take a relaxing 5 minute walk on a flat path. We’re so close to the Pacific, you can hear it crashing just behind the row of towering jungle trees at the back of the property.
If you’re unsure where to start with your adventures and activities, we can help. We’ll happily set you up with fishing trips, zip-line tours, a kayak adventure, or a yoga instructor who will come out to the property and guide you through a series of poses on your private, open-air yoga studio. Or, learn to surf with a talented instructor. One of Costa Rica’s best breaks is in the Jungle House’s backyard!
After spending all day working up an appetite, you can either step right onto the main road for a variety of restaurants, or cross the street to the fruteria for fresh veggies, fruits and eggs. Prepare a meal in the house’s large open kitchen, which is fully equipped with quality cookware and appliances. There’s also a supermarket, just a 3-minute walk, for everything else you might need. We can arrange delivery of delicious fresh fish to you as well, which you can grill on the outdoor barbecue while everyone cools off in the private pool.
Forbes Magazine calls Santa Teresa one of the world’s top ten most breathtaking beaches—with its volcanic formations, lush tropical scenery, and diverse wildlife—and we know you’ll agree.
Why not give your family something to look forward to, starting right now? Book your escape to Santa Teresa’s Jungle House today!

Many visitors comment that this section of Santa Teresa is the coolest part of town. Restaurants & markets, surf shops, and the main beach path are all right out our front door. This little section between Super Ronny #2 & the beach path at Brunela Hostel is always alive with people walking to & from the beach, and going out to eat & drink. There are people from all over the world, and you get a really free feeling as you walk around without a care in the world, meeting other people having a great time too.

Joe was a friendly and helpful host.
The room itself was cleaned and we had plenty of space. The location is close to the amazing Santa Terese beach. However the room is next to the street which makes it a bit noisy and there is not much suitable space to sit outside. This makes it more a space to sleep and to cook your meal.
To sum it up: In comparison to the prices of other places at Santa Terese it is a good price and a nice host.
I wish my stay at the Jungle House would have been longer. Joe was attentive, helpful, and never missed a beat. He was there to help us with every step of our adventure. The house felt like a beach home should. Funky music, home-cooking, and personal decor made this stay relaxing, charming, and comfortable. The house always felt clean and well-manicured. I would positively recommend this place, and I hope to visit Santa Teresa again. When I do, I certainly would love to stay at the Jungle House!
Thank you Joe.
What's not to like about this place! A beautiful house, a gracious host, 5 minutes from the beach, a big kitchen to cook in, and even a lovely house cat to play with. I was very fortunate to have it mostly to myself so I can't speak to how it is with a full house, but everything about my experience was excellent. Joe is the ideal host, available to answer questions, knowledgeable about local spots and resources, VERY helpful regarding how to arrive at the house, and you definitely have to ask him to get some of the freshly caught fish that arrives at his doorstep every week. There's also pretty large common areas to hang out in if you don't wanna be in your room. Hammocks and ping pong table are also nice perks.!
What an amazing get away! Joe's Jungle House was our first stop in Costa Rica as we traveled and it was one of our favorites by far. Very clean and open with beautiful details throughout the house. Joe was so helpful, nice and fun. We enjoyed our time with him, at the house and in Santa Teresa.
Joe is an amazing host and welcoming man. The Jungle House was awesome and we loved every minute of it. Joe was wonderful at suggesting activies and even hanging out with us having and little fun fishing and going to the rodeo... Great place to stay for surfing and ideal for any one looking to get away from the busy life... I plan to return again!
