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.
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!
J'ai eu la chance de venir voir youbi au costa rica, et je ne peux penser à ce pays sans penser à lui. Cest une personne trés intéressante, généreuse, et pleine d'humour! En plus dans un endroit magique, une maison trés agréable, et une vue imprenable sur l'océan pacifique.. Une adresse sûre. N'hésitez plus...
Youbi and I met back in 2008. He invited me to his lovely casa where we listened to Django Reinhardt while I prepared ceviche for us in his awesome kitchen:) His attention to detail is apparent and the over-all energy in this space is most welcoming. Not to mention, the location is prime-just up from the main road-close enough to town to walk down. There are sweet, swinging chairs overlooking the ocean-relax and simply take in the breathtaking view. If you're looking for a tranquil experience on the Nicoya Peninsula you need go no further-I highly recommend this unique place.
Keep smiling, Youbi is a Nice person and will do his ultimate best to make your stay - and thus your holiday in CR - a thing to keep in your dreams for years to come....
I stayed at Youbi's place two times in 3 weeks in January 2013. I booked the studio with a friend and it was great !! Super clean, 2 comfortable beds, a kitchen, a nice bathroom and an access to the terrasse of the main appartment. What a view: sunny the whole afternoon and the sun dives in the sea everyday just in front of you !! Monkeys, lezards, and birds are everywhere arround. I can only recommanded this place to everyone !!! Go !!
