The house is built in a warm, friendly wooden surf shack style. Sitting backed into the jungle a mear 400m up the side of a hill on a secluded private road, overlooking playa St Teresa from the famous surf break, Suck Rock to the North, down to La Lora in the South. It's a ten minute walk uphill from the main road but the view and the privacy is worth every single step. The beach, surf rentals and a grocery store are all in 10-15 minutes walking distance.
The house features a big bedroom with a queens size bed and ocean view and a smaller bedroom that fits a queens size bed and a shelf. There is also an additional annex with a single bed, The outside kitchen and the massive balcony and deck brings you close to living with nature. The decision whether and where to go surfing is usually made while enjoing a coffee or fresh juice on the balcony at breakfast.
During your stay I will normally live with my girlfriend in the studio on the base level of the house and will be happy to help you with recommendations.
Come and enjoy a little slice of heaven and some of the most amazing sunsets on the planet from the balcony.
Had a great experience at Youbi's house . Place was beautiful and surrounded by nature. Youbi was a great host, very helpful and accomodating
Youbi is a great host and an awesome guy! During our stay, he and his girlfriend provided countless tips on great restaurants, daily surf reports, info on surf rentals, and cool things to check out in and around Santa Teresa and the southern Nicoya peninsula. His stunning ocean view terrace is both beautiful and comfortable, and is often surrounded by howler and white faced monkeys feasting on his various fruit trees.
As others have noted, the road up to his place is quite steep and sketchy if arriving at night. But, once you've done the approach once it's not so bad - all part of the adventure! Pura Vida!
Estar en la casa de Youbi ha sido sin duda una elección excelente, tanto por las espectaculares vistas, la fantástica casa, a la que no le falta detalle, y la hospitalidad de su anfitrión. Si quieres perderte unos días en mitad de un paraíso este es tu sitio, eso sí, asegúrate de tener un 4x4!!!muchas gracias por todo Youbi, lugar altamente recomendable!!!!!!
We just returned from a fabulous week at Youbi's remarkable and stunning ocean view house. Our family of five had a great week of surfing, swimming and enjoying the laid back atmosphere of Playa Santa Teresa. Saw some of the best sunsets in the world. Youbi's house was set back in the lush mountains---believe the previous recommendations that a 4WD vehicle is absolutely necessary to ascend to the house. The natural setting of the house was very unique and was one of the highlights of the trip. The howler monkeys provided a boisterous soundtrack as they climbed past the house at various times during the day. Youbi was available for some expert surfing instruction for the kids and his recommendations for other activities during our stay were always on the mark. Our week was perfect and Youbi's hospitality and wonderful house helped to make it so. Will plan to return.
We had 5 wonderful days of relaxing in Youbis Ocean view House.
The Way up to this stunning view, Is an Adventure for The car and The driver. The wodden House is Part of The surrounding trees and Vegetation. It is fantastic to sleep with The Noise of The surch and The jungel
Santa Teresa and The braches are awesome. We enjoyed The House and Youbis kindness so much.
Thank u for all The unbeliveble impressions. We Will Never forget These 5 days.
Muchas gracias para todos!!

Youbi est un hôte très agréable il a répondu avec gentillesse a nos multiples sollicitations. Il nous a indiqué les meilleures plages pour surfers debutants s est déplacé pour nous choisir une planche pour moi et ma fille, ou pour reserver une plongée en bouteille.
Toujours a l écoute de nos besoins mais discret merci beaucoup youbi
Youbi was the perfect host and the Ocean View Terrace is exactly as billed. I took my entire family to Coast Rica in February 2015 and we stayed at Youbi's for the duration of our trip. The property is immaculate and the view from the terrace down to the ocean was fantastic. In fact, the best part about Youbi's rental property is that he is slightly removed from the noise of the street below. When you stay there...all you get is the distant sound of waves, howler monkeys and birds.
Definitely need four wheel drive to get to Youbi's property and it's best to try and get there during daylight hours for your first run up the hill.
I would definitely recommend staying at this property and if we ever go back to Playa Santa Teresa, this is where we'll be staying.
