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.
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.
I would highly recommend Youbi's place to anyone wishing for a magical mix of perfect location (high up enough to get a magnificent sunset view, yet very close to the town's attractions), beautiful nature, howler monkeys as your alarm clock, an immaculate house in which everything functions perfectly, beautifully decorated bedrooms and a super chill vibe.
We couldn't have asked for a better host--and new friend! Youbi is extremely kind, friendly and helpful guy.
We would love to come back!
Youbi's house has amazing views of the ocean/sunset and is located on a really convenient part of town. We were greeted by monkeys and a variety of amazing animal life. We would recommend to anyone seeking a truly tropical experience!
Youbi's house is really rather special - one of the most beautiful and peaceful spots you can imagine in Playa Teresa. He and his girlfriend are the most graceful and helpful hosts imaginable and helped us get the most out of our stay there from the moment we arrived. Thank you Youbi for making our stay a really magical one, we hope to come back again soon!
Staying at Youbi's was an incredible experience for me and my friends. He and Varenna went out of their way to welcome us after a long drive that we took from Tamarindo. The place is awesome and the views spectacular. The road up to Youbi's is steep and being five girls from the U.S., we were not used to driving up that kind of road. However, Youbi was so great and drove our vehicle up for us easily! Youbi and Varenna gave us great recommendations, advice and directions for our stay in and departure from Santa Teresa. Varenna even took me and my friends to her favorite yoga place which was wonderful! I can honestly say that staying at Youbi's place was an amazing experience. My friends and I talked the whole way home about it and how sad we were to leave. Thank you Youbi and Varenna for being such great people and hosts!
Youbi is a lovely person! His home is a special place we stayed here and can honestly say we cried on the ride to the airport! Everything was as described ! Would def. come again! the hill up is far beyond what you can imagine in the states is steep! You must make sure your vehicle has great tread on it! The views are so awesome! Sunset is beautiful and we saw and heard nature first hand! Our kids love this town! Would highly recommend surf classes with Nick and Victoe at surf &sup. right on bottom of hill. We loved burger ranchero and zwart cafe! A magical get away!
Great location, great host ... nothing more to add. We will never forget this place and Youbi's hospitality. Looking fwd to come back already
