Villa Bonita is not to be missed - it is EVERYTHING you want in a Costa Rican vacation. The home itself is immaculate and perfect for a large group to entertain and enjoy. It is steps from the beach and several wonderful restaurants. The staff could not have been more attentive and accommodating. I absolutely adored this location!

This was our second trip to Villa Bonita and I LOVED IT! The place was as expected, check in was easy, and the location is great. Our first trip was with 6 adults in 2016 and we enjoyed it more having our college age son and girlfriend to show around. The atmosphere is wonderful having Banana Beach right next door - so we did not have to cook at all, the food was right there! The maid is friendly and very efficient, and Hagit was a wonderful resource for what was new going on. Thank you for a wonderful time as always!

Villa Bonita was a charming place to stay. It had an interesting layout with the kitchen outdoors. This makes more sense once you stay there and realize you spend most of your time on the covered porch and pool area. The massage chair was a huge hit with sore bodies after surfing. The owners were very attentive to any requests we made and the location was convenient .

Me and my family had a great time in Villa Bonita. Location is right on the beach and has a very nice pool and garden. Roads are abit bumpy to get there, but it's worth it.

Loved the Villa Bonita! First, the location is ideal. Just moments from the beach, a few minutes from all the stores and ideally, right next to the Banana Beach club where you could relax with food and drink while looking at the shore. Second, the house is so complete. Two master bedrooms with comfy beds and many bathrooms and lots of hot . A perfect room for two kids to share and a complete kitchen accessible from the deck. Third, the deck is large with ceiling fans and has comfy chairs to watch the kids playing in the pool looking out over the lush gardens to the ocean. (Gate at the entrance of the compound provides some security). The daily servicing of the house was very nice. Cordial housekeepers who made the place welcome and spotless. We never used the bbq hut but it was ready to go IF we had wanted to use it. Loved the water dispenser and the very large bottles of water left for us. I would recommend loading (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) so you can communicate for free with the on-site manager. Makes life so much easier than email. Danielle took care of us so well arranging ATV rides, trip to Tortuga Island, dining recos or reservations... (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) made it a snap. Some other visitors commented that the AC didn't work that well in all rooms. Once calibrated, the place was perfect in terms of temp. (Could have been mausoleum cold if we had wanted...) Very large tv in the living room with AppleTV worked perfectly -- there was so much to do we literally turned it on and off and never used it again. Wifi in MPais/STeresa is not fast (2MB down is the max), but works at the house. Know that you're right next door to the Banana Beach club (literally 40 steps), there is a pool behind the house at the BB club/hotel and a house between you and the beach. So, at the Villa Bonita, you are not "in the jungle" but surrounded by other places which was rarely a problem. The house is built solidly so you won't likely hear your neighbors with the doors closed and the AC on. Just don't expect a "walk around in the buff" experience unless you want some neighbors to see you. All in all, if we were to come back to MPais/STeresa, we would book the Villa Bonita again without hesitation. Emilya and her staff are terrific hosts!

Me and my family stayed in this incredible villa, and we fell in love. The location is perfect , 5 steps and you are on the beach! the restaurant next door was the coolest beach bar we have seen so far in Costa Rica, the staff were funny, friendly and the food was amazing. The villa itself has a bbq zone we enjoyed, ask the owner to hook you up with fresh fish from the local fisherman and bbq it! we most of the time did not feel the need to leave the villa much, we had everything we need and the private pool was really fun. Emilya and her staff were extremely helpful and will share with you any info or tips you might need. Bottom line- perfect vacation rental we will be back!!

Emilya and Danielle made our stay a completely enjoyable vacation from the moment we arrived. The Villa is exactly as described but even more picturesque and comfortable! In person! It is seconds to the beach. Danielle was exceptionally helpful & available for all our needs. We would stay here again and again! Thank you for a wonderful stay in Santa Teresa!
