Laura's place was fantastic! Jacopo warmly welcomed us when we arrived and regularly checked in to make sure we had everything we needed.
The apartment looks exactly like the photos. We spent hours lounging in the hammock reading and looking at the birds, squirrels, and even iguanas in the trees! You don't need a car; the beach, grocery store, and plenty of fantastic restaurants are just steps away. We would definitely book again.
Although Laura was on holiday in Italy and unable to greet my guests and I upon arrival, we were greeted ever so warmly by Jacopo. The directions provided were excellent and took us right to the Ginger Café. Besides being saddened by the temporarily closing of the restaurant (Ginger Café), I feel that we could not have picked a better place to stay in Playa Santa Teresa. The home offered everything that we needed and is located close to everything. We walked to the beach, surf shops, cafes and always felt safe. Jacopo lives next door and was always around to help point us in the right direction rather it be a restaurant recommendation or guidance on extracurricular activities. He was absolutely wonderful and I will be back to visit someday.
My boyfriend and I traveled around Costa Rica for 10 days and spent the last leg of our trip in Santa Teresa. Laura was out of the country so her husband, Jacopo, hosted us for the two nights we stayed there. He was extremely helpful, friendly, and seemed to genuinely care about our happiness and well being. For example, he arranged for us to borrow an ATV from his friend at a low cost and when we asked him about a snorkeling destination, he even lent us his personal snorkeling gear! The apartment was even better than shown in photos! It was very open and it instantly made us feel at home. Overall, we had a blast in Santa Teresa and we would love to stay at Laura and Jacopo's apartment again!
Our stay with Laura was perfect. She was a wonderful and available host. The space is amazing, clean, and in a wonderful area convenient to the beach and walking distance of lots of food and shops.
La casa está increíble y laura es una excelente anfitriona, siempre estuvo al pendiente de todo.
La casa está muy completa y muy bella y a 100 mts de la playa.
Laura's place is very relaxing. It's an open air 2nd story apartment with everything you need. It's a short walk to the beach and surf break. Laura can give you great suggestions of where to visit/eat in town as well as all around Costa Rica. There are lots of animals around to watch. We got lost on our way in and Laura waited up until midnight to welcome us in. I'd recommend staying here and we hope we can visit again next year! Laura and Jacob were gracious hosts.
This place is amazing. There is everything you need and in case I needed something Laura and her husband were always there immediately. They are super nice and warm hearted people!! I highly recommend their place!
Laura was super nice and very very friendly, everything exactly as described! We were able to park on the street right out front so for people traveling with a car, it's very easy to find somewhere to stash your vehicle while staying at Laura's place. We wish we could have stayed longer to catch some classic ST waves!
Our stay at Laura's appartment was great! We had a good e-mail contact in advance and we felt very welcome right from the beginning. Laura and her husband were always there to answer questions and to help. The house is new and cosy and very well located. Everything is close, restaurants, beach, supermarket... We ate a few times at Ginger Café (the host's own café) and always had coffee there as it's the best in town!
I strongly recommend Laura's place and would stay there again any time.
This is a great find in Santa Teresa. Open livingroom/kitchen and a separate bedroom/bathroom. We had a great time lounging in the hammock! The couple runs the Ginger cafe which has good breakfast and lunch. If you want to make your own there is a bakery right next door. Hope to be back again!
