About Cristina Sartori Medri

Cristina and Dante are italians and spent many years living in the states. During one of their travel they came upon Santa Teresa and fell in love with it. It's the perfect spot to get away from it all.

Cristina and Dante are green home designers and builders, and thought about bringing their expertise here to build an ecologically friendly house resort.

Cristina Sartori Medri purchased this villa in 2010

Why Cristina Sartori Medri chose Hermosa Cóbano Beach

We fell in love with Santa Teresa, and particularly with playa Hermosa the first time we came here, in 2001. We traveled extensively, and when we arrived in this paradise, we knew we had found a real gem.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The place we are currently staying at is absolutely the most awesome place I have ever stayed at, anywhere. Seriously, I can not think of one thing I would change about Batik Blue. [...]

Simply put, Batik is paradise

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful and so luxurious. We stayed in Batik Blue and it was just perfect for the six of us. Isabella was so nice and helpful with tips for travel and setting up activities. We did surfing and horseback riding and the rest of the time just hung out, relaxed, and cooked delicious food with friends. We will for sure be back again! Thank you to everyone at Batik for making our stay so wonderful, relaxing, and most of all worry free.

Amazing tropical getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled to Costa Rica with our children (25 year old twins) to celebrate my milestone birthday. Batik Blue was perfect! Christina, the owner, was very communicative and helpful during the booking process answering all of my many questions. Had the pleasure of meeting her during our stay.

Once we arrived we were greeted by Antonio, the manager/concierge. He was very attentive and responsive with all of our last minute requests and many questions during our stay about the area. Enjoyed seeing him surf in the early hours and at sunset.

Batik Blue exceeded our expectations, we would highly recommend this location for a remote, authentic jungle experience with some amenities of a hotel.

Though not a lot to do in the town of Santa Teresa, we spent most of our nights at the villa playing games that we had packed. During the days we rented surf and boogie boards, had private yoga arranged on the grounds, and massages at our villa.....rented ATV's for a day of touring to the waterfalls in the town of Montezuma...What an amazing vacation!!

Most wonderful place I have ever been!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay. I cannot express enough how beautiful this property is - how beautiful the beach is - and how lovely the owners/operator is. Truly a concierge experience where every detail is attended to. The location is a short walk to the most gorgeous beach and we often would see monkeys in the trees during the walk. The beds were extremely comfortable and the sheets/pillows were very good quality. We went to local restaurants, had surfing lessons, went fishing/snorkeling and took a hike to the Montezuma waterfalls. All details were arranged by Batik. We had a private yoga session at the on-property yoga hut - and it was wonderful. We had a local woman cook for us twice- and the food was wonderful and it was nice to just let our children swim while we relaxed. Batik also arranged for a private charter plane back to San Jose so that we could get our flight home. We cannot wait to come back. We have three children ages 15, 11 and 6 and felt very safe. The location has a full-time security guard - but I'm not sure one is needed - but it was nice to know he was there. I have very high standards and cannot recommend this property more strongly. Pura Vida!

Best vacation ... ever!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely amazing time at the Batik Blue Villa.

The villa itself is so well laid out - 3 apartment, where 2 rooms are on one side of the central common area, and 1 master on the other side of the common area. The common area is so airy and dreamy - several days we just hang out by the pool for half a day, the house is so comfortable.

The ocean is very close, maybe 200 yards. There are several surfboards on the property for rental, which means that there is no need rent surfboard from the nearby shops - a big plus. The beach itself that's closest to the house, Playa Hermosa, is absolutely perfect for beginners - it's sandy, very shallow, etc. If you are planning to do easy surfing, or want to learn how to surf, the beach couldn't be better.

The town of Santa Teresa is maybe a 10 min drive - you do have to have a car. The relative seclusion is very welcomed if you are looking for complete relaxation. At night the surrounding area is absolutely quiet and peaceful.

If you are looking for yoga, the Pranamar studio is a 15 min walk on the beach or 3 min by car. We loved the yoga classes by Nancy, who was absolutely wonderful. Nancy is also able to come to the villa and do a private class (there is a Shala on the property, next to the house).

Finally, there are two very special people on the property who we can't thank enough:

- Isabella - the concierge and property manager. Isabella was absolutely wonderful. She helped us arrange car rental, Isabella recommended nearby restaurants, arranged and suggested trips. She was just so absolutely helpful.

- Andrea - we decided to have someone cook for us every day, and Andrea came highly recommended. Andrea came up with new ideas for everyday - we typically had Andrea cook lunches and dinners. Not having to cook was such a luxury, but so worth it. Andrea bought the groceries, she took care of everything. If you are looking to have someone cook for you, I suggest you ask Isabella to introduce you to Andrea :-)

Overall, we would love to and hope to come back. This was the most amazing 2 weeks, ever.
