Beautiful Villa With Infinity Pool and Breathtaking Panoramic Views - Casa Mango

Bedrooms 3
Space 2,200 sq ft
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 - 5 nights


About the property

3 Bedroom 3 bath, sleeps 9 with Ocean Views overlooking Playa Santa Teresa

Casa Mango is the perfect getaway for couples, friends, and families alike! The home is located in beautiful Santa Teresa, on the Southern Nicoya Peninsula of Costa Rica, named as “Best Beach in Central America” and by Forbes Magazine as one of the “World’s Top 10 Most Breathtaking Beaches”. Come check it out! You will not be disappointed!

Casa Mango has been described by travelers as the “perfect blend of upscale and outdoor living”. The villa resides on the lower part of a hill towards the north end of Santa Teresa, offering both privacy and panoramic ocean views from every room. This newly painted and freshened up 2,200 sq ft villa is only a 150 meter (5 min.) walk to the beach in a more quiet section of town, yet still close to great restaurants/bars/supermarket. Just refinished a gorgeous infinity pool with ocean/jungle views. During mango season, you can pick mangos in the yard or watch the monkeys come in for breakfast. Keep your eyes on the horizon for whales passing by.

The house features custom hand-crafted furniture and each bedroom boasts ocean views, private baths and luxury high thread count linens. There are three spacious bedrooms, two upstairs and one downstairs. One upstairs bedroom has a King size bed and the other bedroom has two Queen sized beds. The downstairs bedroom has one Queen and one Twin bed. The house has a covered outdoor dining area as well as a terrace and sun deck on the first floor, plus a covered terrace on the second floor complete with a wet bar. A barbeque grill is next to the kitchen and pool.

Imagine waking up to the sound of the ocean and having your morning coffee (Costa Rican of course!) from any one of the terraces, while watching the capuchin monkeys pick mangos for their breakfast from the grove on the property. You can see the waves breaking before you head out for a surf. Spend the day enjoying Santa Teresa’s secluded white sand beaches, turquoise water, and wildlife. Santa Teresa is known for its world-class surf that breaks consistent year-round. Later, end a great day by watching the most incredible sunset right at the house; you may never want to leave once you've seen the 180 degree sunset view from Casa Mango.

If you do decide to venture out, Santa Teresa’s unique international influence inspires world-class cuisine served by over 50 restaurants throughout town. Entertainment can be enjoyed most nights from acoustic musicians to bands and DJ’s performing at the local bars and beaches. Santa Teresa manages to be both lively and sleepy, offering the perfect vacation for all types of travelers.

What are people saying?

'We loved beautiful Casa Mango! If you like spectacular beaches, great restaurants, and wildlife in your back yard, then you'll love it too. We saw a coati, capuchin & howler monkeys plus funky squirrels without even leaving the house. On our morning walks, we saw an ocelot, more monkeys, lizards, and other wildlife. And if you've never HEARD howler monkeys, you're in for a treat! This part of Costa Rica is quite isolated, so you're not going to find it to be touristy at all, but the area is great for the independent traveler. If you like to surf, this is your place too. We just liked soaking up the rays on the beach, then going back to Casa Mango for some sort of drink from the blender, often involving mangos. The house is gorgeous -- a perfect blend of upscale and outdoor living. While there, we took a day trip to Cabo Blanco Nature Reserve, which is maybe an hour drive away. Near Cabo Blanco we visited Montezuma, a funky little town on the water with great bars. But we mainly stayed in the St. Teresa/Mal Pais area - it's paradise! ENJOY!'

Why Kristi chose Santa Teresa Beach

We scoured Central America for the right country, the right town, and the right home. After years of diligence we were confidant that there is no place like Santa Teresa with it's epic surf, incredible food choices and low key yet still lively vibe. Casa Mango is the exact home we were looking for. A place that felt both luxurious and homey but with a sense of adventure. Great location, close to town yet far enough away for the tranquil vibe Santa Teresa offers.

What makes this house unique

The home is located on a hill so it gets a nice breeze and the most spectacular panoramic view of the ocean and the peninsula. At the same time, is not too high up the hill, so it's still in close walking distance to the beach. The beach access closest to the home is our favorite spot on Playa Santa Teresa. The home sits on a private 1.25 acre lot with unobstructed views. The house itself has a great open indoor/outdoor layout and the rooms are large with lots of glass doors that open to the ocean views throughout the house. Our favorite thing to do in the home is to sit on the upstairs terrace in the morning to check the surf, watch the monkeys and then again in the evening to watch the sunset.

Our second home in Costa Rica!

  • 5 of 5

Our 3 girls were given an option to vacation anywhere and they chose to go back to Casa Mango where they experienced Costa Rica for the first time 8 years ago. The home was updated with an infinity pool and stronger wifi but other than that it have remained true to its beauty. Easy walk down the hill to our beach or just ATV north or south to find your own. The manager was very attentive and assisted us with questions. The surfing is unsurpassed with breaks for beginners to pro, just ask locals for best spots based on your ability. The Howler monkeys troupe visited us every day and gave quite a fun show when they eat the mangos surrounding the house.

We will return to Casa Mango again and again.

Awesome Trip to Casa Mango

  • 5 of 5

Our family recently returned from a week stay in Santa Teresa at Casa Mango. We had an awesome time, the house was great, the perfect house for beach vacation. Great views and we loved the pool. The house manager, Kristi, was great. She was there to answer all of questions and assistance us with any reservations we needed and was a wealth of local knowledge. We are definitely planning a return trip

Our Home Away From Home!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely please with this villa and it’s location. Kristi, the property manager, was very accommodating. She helped us set up three different masseuses at the villa and gave us several options for a chef to come and cook for us at the villa as well. The grocery store is less than a 1/4 mile away, which is super convenient for runs to grab fresh drinking water and other supplies. The view of ocean and sunset were awesome. The pictures do it justice. The AC in all bedrooms worked great. The privacy was excellent on all four sides and we felt extremely safe while at home and out on adventures. The internet was great, especially upstairs in master bedroom area where router is located (10.4 mbps download, 2.3 mbps upload).

I do wish there had been dressers with some type of drawers or cubby holes to place our clothing. Each bedroom had only a bar to hang clothes with no place for the rest of our clothes. We ended up having to place piles of clothes on the floor. I’m not one to live out of a suitcase and like to unpack. Having something to place our belongings in would have been very helpful.

The outdoor grill was great and the washer and dryer both worked as well. The infinity pool was high on the list of reasons for my rental and it lived up to its expectations. The lighting outside and around the pool was also awesome. The pool guy, the maintenance guy and the maid were super responsive with any of our needs and Kristi was always available to coordinate and accommodate in anyway we needed.

The bedrooms were nice and spacious and the kitchen was well stocked. We even had coffee, milk, sugar, and a bottle of wine waiting for us when we arrived late in the evening after the grocery store had closed. There’s nothing like waking up to a fresh pot of Costa Rican coffee to get your first day started!

We were extremely pleased and will definitely rent this property again next year!!!

We miss this fabulous home already and wish we could have stayed another month!!! Maybe next time!!!

Amazing View, Great Villa

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 adults traveled to the Mal Pais/Santa Teresa area for the 7th time and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at another great home. Casa Mango was the perfect size for us and had all the amenities you could ask for...comfortable beds, A/C in every bedroom, washer and dryer (don't over pack all those clothes you thought you were going to wear!), well-equipped kitchen and outside grill, and of course the infinity pool with deck overlooking the Pacific (amazing sunsets and stargazing!). Kristi was gracious, attentive and responsive to all our requests and actively maintained the property i.e. notifying plumber to address upstairs bathroom issue, the electrician for the lights for the pool and had more water delivered to the pool. Don't worry about the required damage deposit, totally refunded in timely fashion upon request. And yes, plenty of wildlife visits the area surrounding the house: iguanas, raccoons, lots of different birds and of course the howler monkeys! The location of the house is walking distance to a beach for swimming and surfing and just a 5 minute drive from one of our favorite beaches, Playa Hermosa and there are nearby tidal pools for exploring. Having Hacienda mercado within walking distance is a big plus too if you prefer to prepare your own meals. If you're looking for a great local tour guide (born and raised in Mal Pais) or rent quads, surf boards, go horse back-riding, zip-lining or arrange a fishing trip, Adrian Nunez at Ollie's Adventures by Ronnie's I is your man! Pura Vida!

Fabulous villa with fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I rented Casa Mango for about a week and absolutely loved it. The outdoor living space is fantastic and we spent most of our time on the deck and in the pool. The location is great, close to town but far enough up to be quiet and away from the dusty road. The only problem we had with noise were some barking dogs, but I blame the monkeys that seemed to be taunting them. The location is also perfect for watching sunset over the Pacific. It was nice to have a/c in the bedrooms but it was also cool enough with the ocean breeze that we really didn't need it much and mostly just left the windows open. This house also has screens, which seems to be a bonus in Costa Rica. Kristi is also a fantastic property manager and was very responsive when we needed anything. If you haven't been here before, the house can be a bit tough to find in the dark but Kristi rescued us (more than once) and is a delightful host. Good birdwatching, nice furnishings, comfy bed, really no complaints. We would definitely rent this house again.

What a vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing stay at Casa Mango in Santa Teresa! Pia was very helpful leading up to our arrival, and Kristi totally took care of us the entire week, booking our surf lessons, snorkeling trip, fishing outing, zip-lining, dinner reservations. We are a family of five (kids ages 10, 8, and 6) and the house was perfect. The pool was great, especially during the hot mid-day. The location allowed very easy access to the local beach (a 1 minute drive), the grocery store (also 1 minute via car), and all of the incredible restaurants on the main road. We would personally recommend either renting a car or ATV's, and Pia and Kristi were happy to help us with this as well. We couldn't have had a better time, and will definitely go back and stay at Casa Mango.
