I'm originally from Argentina, love to travel and to surf!, Trying to travel as much as possible right now and get to know new cultures
Adam's place is really cool, up on a hill with a really super view and away from the hustle and bustle of the main drag. I was on my own and only staying for a few days without a vehicle so it was a bit far for me. Adam was really great to change the reservation at short notice. But if you have a car or want to rent a quad (small "big wheel" beach cruiser kind of vehicle, very available in ST), or are feeling "sportif" this would be a great pace to stay.
Adam is a really nice guy, took really good care of us and made sure we had everything we needed during our stay, even bought us some fruits when we arrived. He also paid for a cleaning lady to come by and tidy the place during our stay, which was greatly appreciated!
The house is nice, clean and of good standard (especially surprised by the bathroom). It is newly built and located on the top of a hill with an amazing view of the waves, the horizon and beautiful sunsets. It is in the middle of the forrest, which is nice and peaceful, but you do have neighbours next door and you will have to tolerate the visit of quite a lot of bugs, gekkos and spiders. Also, the sound of the sea (and sometimes sound of the cars) is very loud, especially during the night, which took us some time to get used too and be able to sleep through. I used earplugs.
You should definitively count on renting a quad during your whole stay as the road to reach the house is extremely steep and long (our quad barely made it the whole way). It costs around $70/day. This will also help you as it is a good kilometer walk to get to the beach from the house which can be tough in the heat.
The town of Santa Teresa is amazing, by renting a quad you can access playa carmen, playa hermosa, montezuma and cabo blanco too which we really enjoyed.
Overall, we had an extremely nice holiday in Santa Teresa and are glad we were greated by such a lovely person as Adam.
