About this listing
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.
My girlfriend had a great stay at this beautiful house on the hill. The ocean and jungle views are amazing from the balcony while kicking back on the swinging seats and hammock. Everything is in good order except we couldnt get the internet to work at all, this wasn't a big problem for us as most of the restaurants and cafes have wifi, but if you are needing to be connected this could be a problem. We didbt meet Youbi, but he was good to deal with online, and his friend that was looking after the place was helpful. If you are looking for somewhere to relax with a great view not too far from the action i would recommend this place.
Honestly this is the best vacation I've ever had. I typically stay in all inclusive resorts but wanted to try something different this time around. The house and town were just perfect and had something for everyone in our group ! We will definitely be coming back! Pura Vida!
Des vacances top, 5 jours de robinsonade, location très sympa, beau spot vue sur mer et accueil très chaleureux de Youbi. 4x4 indispensable :)) pour accès !
This property is absolutely stunning! It has been beautifully built and has a breathtaking view. We felt completely relaxed and hardly the house during our stay! The kitchen is a joy to cook in and the main bedroom is dreamy. Thank you for a wonderful time!
Me and 3 good friends had a blast staying at Youbi's picture-perfect terrace in the charming town of Santa Teresa. The house was clean, beautifully decorated and unique.
Everything was exactly as described if not better. My favourite thing was the mango tree shower, during the hot days, it's refreshing. The view was incredible especially at sunset!
Youbi and his girlfriend always carried a nice smile and really took care of us. They gave us tips on the different beaches and surf spots.
If you are looking for a quite, private but convenient place to lodge, you won't go wrong here. You do need a AWD to get up the hill, it's quite steep but manageable.
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!
