Fernando was a great host and we loved staying at El Chante. It was the perfect spot, just north of Santa Teresa with an amazing pool area to hang out by after a day at the beach. The house also has a ping pong table, a bar, and and some extra beach games to use. Beach access was close by, only a 10 minute walk, and was one of the top beaches I've been to. Fernando has a nice set of surfboards that he makes available to guests which was nice since we didn't have to worry about renting from random shops in town.
Compared to other places we stayed at in Costa Rica, I think that this place was a steal. We happened to luck out as there were no guests staying in the other two rooms that are available to rent. Although even if there had been others, I think that it would have been great nonetheless. The only downside to our stay was that Fernando had to head out of town so we weren't able to get to know him better and learn about the area more. However, he did check in each day to make sure that everything was fine and that we didn't have any issues.
El chante, in Santa Teresa is a great asset to the airbnb community. Fernando and Kristen are very great people. Very knowledgable of the area and very helpful with ideas and things to do in the area. The beach is 5 minute walk from the house. The house is great and many amenities. They both really try to look out for you, and want you to have the best time. My next time in Costa Rica, I will definitely be spending some more time in Santa Teresa and I don't see why wouldn't stay at el chante again. Thank you Fernando and Kristen.
A really really cool place to be! We found our el chante in costa rica :)
The house is very pretty, we really liked the pool and had some fun at the ping pong table! Its also very nice that the beach is about 5min by walk.
Fernando is a really nice and very helpfull host! We really enjoyed the time there and highly recommend the el chante beach house 3
Fernando was a great host, friendly, respectful and very involved. His number one priority is to make sure that your journey at his wonderful house goes well. Close to the Hermosa beach (5 minutes from Santa Teresa), his house's clean with a full furnished kitchen, comfy beds and an amazing pool! He was a great coach in his surf lessons and he gave us good advice when it was time to go eat or for a drink. Lovely dog also!! ;) We strongly recommend the El-Chante for a peace of mind and for the great waves close to it!! Pura vida is exactly what you'll find there!

Nos hizo falta quedarnos más días en el Chante. Soy tica y fui con 6 amigos alemanes a el Chante. No pude haber escogido otro lugar mejor. Todos quedamos realmente felices. La casa está muy bien equipada, muy limpia y nos encantó la decoración original de Kristin - dueña del lugar. La hospitalidad y gentileza de Fernando - dueño- fue excelente. Hasta pasamos una navidad poco tradicional pero divertida con ellos. Muchas gracias por todo.
Alles war Super. Fernando und Kristin waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Das Haus war wirklich sauber und toll dekoriert. Vielen Dank.
La verdad es que "El Chante" fue toda una sorpresa. Despues de recorrer varios alojamientos durante la semana, decidimos hacer noche en Santa Teresa. El anfitrión, Fernando, estuvo pendiente en todo momento de nuestra llegada. La casa estaba limpia, muy bien decorada y, sobre todo, MUY confortable. Las instalaciones como el césped o la piscina estaban muy cuidados. La ubicación también es un plus, a menos de 5 minutos de la playa andando y a menos de 2 de un súper (el pueblo de Santa Teresa queda a 5 en coche). Si se viene para hacer Surf, como fue nuestro caso, Fernando es un surfista local bien conocedor de la zona (perfecto para pedir recomendaciones) y cuenta con material para alquilar en caso de que no traigas vuestras tablas.
Ha sido un gran experiencia increíble. Altamente recomendable. Desde luego que si nosotros volvemos a Costa Rica, está claro donde repetiremos. Pura Vida!
Good hospitality and clean.
My sister and I stayed at Fernando's house for two nights. He was a great host and overall, it was a great experience. His place was hard to find, but he provided very detailed directions that were helpful. The house and pool are beautiful, and very comfortable. We arrived on New Years Eve and Fernando invited us to dinner, and then to a great party on the beach afterwards. Good to know the inside scoop! The next afternoon he taught us how to surf, it was convenient that he's a surf instructor. The walk to the beach is about 7/8 minutes. Be advised, there is no hot water in the house. Not that it was an issue, being in the topics, but a heads up would have been nice. Fernando also gave us some great tips about restaurants and bars in the next town we were heading to. I recommend this place, we had a great time and we're thankful to Fernando and his girlfriend for being so inclusive and making our stay memorable.
The place is wonderful and quiet. The house is nice in the middle of the nature. Fernando and Kristin were very friendly and helpfull.
We recommend it.
Fernando fue cuidadoso y muy amable.
