“Beautiful spot that could use some upgrades”

Reviewed 10 Mar 2012

Just returned from Villa Bonita in Santa Teresa, Costa Rica. This rental house was just steps from a beautiful beach where there was plenty of action from live music, great surf, and a decent but expensive resteraunt. The house had plenty of pros and cons: Pros: A/C in entire house was nice considering 95 degrees outside. Nice big beds with decent bedding. Steps from beach. Nice yard with privacy. Centrally located to markets, shops and places to eat. Surfboard rental right next to house. Sandy beach and warm water. Friendly staff. Good security and private parking at house. Spacious house could sleep 8 if needed (3 king beds and 1 double futon). Nice inside/outside kitchen. lots of wildlife (howler monkeys, geckos, iguanas, scorpions, lots of birds) Cons: many mosquitos in and out of house. coffee maker and toaster were broken. supplied drinking water ran out and was not replenished. basketball court at house but no basketball even after request. no ping pong balls for ping pong table. stove top had to be lit with lighter because auto ignite was not working. septic issues in yard made for a foul smell. Overall, this place was suitable and we enjoyed our stay. It seems the whole area is pretty rustic and hasn't seen many renovations in the last couple decades. If you like to surf and don't mind being way out there at the tip of the nicoya peninsula, this place will work for you. Getting to Santa Teresa is a long journey thru the mountains and bumpy roads and it felt great to finally arrive!
