“It was a dream come true”

Villa Bonita on banana beach in Santa Teresa was a dream....
We spent our first four nights in Costa Rica here, trying to overcome the jet lag from Europe....waking up at 4,5,6am....walking on the beach watching the sunrise. It was magical, people were lovely and we had everything we could possibly wish for. Thank you Mali and your crew, your family and friends for making us feel so welcome and caring for all our need:)
Miss you already!

“Best Place in Costa Rica!”
Reviewed December 17, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

We LOVED this Villa! It has everything we look for in a vacation rental. The location is amazing, just 20 seconds to the beach and close enough to everything in town. The Villa itself was perfect, there were plenty of rooms for everyone to sleep well with comfortable clean beds. The house was incredibly clean and the outdoor kitchen/porch/pool area created a great gathering space for our family to stay connected to the outdoors. Emilya and Eilay were so professional and helped us with any reservations we needed. They even had a basket of fresh fruit waiting for us when we arrived. Its the little touches like this that truly show how much they care about their guests. If you are lucky enough to travel to the best country in the world you should consider staying at the best place too!

“Unforgettable stay”
Reviewed November 18, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

With the group of three other couples we spent miracle week in the villa. The location is unbeatable; almost on the beach, very close to the road, running along the coast, but far away enough, to feel peacefully and isolated from the village noise. The villa is very nice, not new, even little bit worn in some elements, but with own character and atmosphere. There are four rooms, although one room is much smaller, than others and not equipped with internal AC installation. The terrace, with the large table is fabulous. We concentrated our every day life there, cooling down our bodies very often in the small, lovely swimming pool. We had very good service, both by the local lady washing the dishes, or cleaning the rooms, and by the the boy cleaning the pool every morning. Emilya, the owner of villa is exceptional person. She took care about us, not only during our vacation in Santa Teresa, but also before and after our stay there, arranging transportation, accommodation at other destinations or recommending the decent restaurants. For sure, the place to return.

“Perfect house!”
Reviewed October 13, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

A group of 6 friends stayed here for a perfect week. The house had everything we needed and Emilya was always within reach for any question we had or adventure we needed to schedule. The porch was great for hanging out. There was plenty of space for us all to be together and also plenty of little chaise lounge, hammock, cabana areas for people to comfortably spread out. We loved having the pool and also the beach just through the palm trees. Tons of great restaurants within walking distance as well as a few grocery stores. We would definitely stay here again and highly recommend it to anyone thinking about visiting Santa Teresa.
