Guestbook comments from the manager

Hello Kevin,

Well, we are finally home and feeling back to "normal" life so I wanted to take a moment and send you a big "Thank You" for letting us stay at your gorgeous property and experience Santa Theresa. We had a fabulous time. As you probably know, we stayed almost a week at the property. We went to Montezuma twice and loved the hiking and waterfalls. We absolutely LOVED the food everywhere we went, but especially each night as we tried a different place to eat along the dusty Santa Theresa streets. We rented boogie boards and enjoyed the waves and spent afternoons in the hammocks by the ocean, reading and napping. The rooms were beautiful--comfortable and cozy....

A magical stay on the beach

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Los Almendros for a 5 week solo vacation and loved every minute of it. From the moment I booked my trip, Hanit and Adrianna who manage the house were ready answer any questions I had and help me coordinate any travel or activity. I stayed in both bungalows over my trip and each is beautiful. The house is designed with the surrounding environment in line -- the screen doors came in very handy, the design feels natural but refined, and the bathrooms are BEAUTIFUL. The grounds of the property are a total jungle and it was an incredibly relaxing place to hang out and sleep. Then, there is the beach right outside your door, which has amazing waves to surf. I was there in the off season and the beach was never crowded and very peaceful.

The house is close-ish to town. I had a car rental for my stay and I would definitely recommend a car or an ATV. It's a nice walk into town down the road or along the beach but can take about 30 minutes. There is a grocery store and a couple restaurants that are a bit closer. Los Almendros is on the north end of town and there is almost two miles of road south so transportation is helpful.

Overall, I couldn't have enough amazing things to say about Los Almendros and the general experience of staying at the house. Hanit and Adrianna are always there for you and the property is magical. It was the perfect vacation spot. Highly, highly recommend!

Absolute paradise in a clean and beautiful space!

  • 5 of 5

We Stayed here for 13th anniversary last week, and believe me when I tell you is the most amazing location and space! Adriana the caretaker was present and helpful, but she also respected our privacy. The beach is less than 100 yards from where you stay, just follow a short path filled with trees and hammocks you can use. The bed is comfortable and romantic, and there are many shops and restaurants a short walk down the beach or main road. Loved the iguanas I’m the property, as well as the full kitchen. We will be back soon!

Beautiful private cottages on the beach at the end of Santa Teresa

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 5 days at Los Almendros. And it was exactly as promised. Beautiful, beach front, romantic. It is a little slice of heaven tucked between ultra high end villas, and mid range surf cottages. The cottage itself is basically perfect. Outdoor shower up front to wash up after surfing, and a secluded outdoor shower out back, with a tree growing in the shower!! Nothing better than showering under the stars. The room is fully air conditioned as well, which allows you to get a good nights sleep. It's about a 100m walk to the beach, but it's all part of the property and you can see the beach the whole way. You can take some of the lounge chairs from the kitchen down to sit on, if you don't have your own. We did that every day. As for the kitchen, it is shared with the other cottage, but it's quite big and has two fridges. More than enough space to accommodate 5 or 6 people. Beautiful kitchen table with a fan over top. There is also a blender...for making smoothies. That came in handy.

The only tricky part is finding the place, as there is no signage out front. But you will find it and the property managers are very attentive in helping out. Make sure you get setup on Whatsapp with them before going. It's best if you have some for of transportation in Santa Teresa, as the closest grocery story is about 1.5km away. Walkable yes...but not a good use of vacation time.

All in all, a truly great location and well worth the money. We were really happy we stayed here.

A very quiet and private and beautiful place.

  • 5 of 5

My friend Laura and I had a most delightful nearly 3 week stay here.

On the northern end of the town of Santa Teresa - which was perfect for the seclusion and peace it brought.

Staff was amazing in their helpfulness - especially Glori.

Sweet traditional bungalow with lush plantings providing privacy and lots of nearby bird songs. Great large outdoor yet private shower. Very short walk across property to ideal beach - much quieter than the area nearer town. Two hammocks near same, in shade often, for lounging.

Approx. 15 minute walk along beach and then up to main road to large grocery. Longer walk to busier part of town - where we very rarely went. We largely stayed put and relaxed in the sublime setting.

Simple shared kitchen that is open air and also has large handsome dining table adjacent on which we had a couple larger meals/dinners with the friends we made in the area - perfect!

Very good restaurants nearby - especially Cafe Sociale - which is just off this property to the south and a favorite of locals and could not be beat for breakfast or lunch. Osa is a fine spot for dinner - 10 minute walk south if that.

We always slept with the doors wide open and the ceiling fan on and had no use for AC - although we gathered that is in the offing soon soon for 'our' bungalow and has already been put in place of the other unit here.

Surf in nearly constant along this entire shore (amazing sound) so one should use caution regarding currents and rip tides. We swam every day though - paying attention to conditions and not venturing far from shore or near rocks to the north.

We rented a 4-wheeler for one day - thanks to Glori - and explored - but otherwise had no interest in leaving such a wonderful vacation spot.

We thank the owners and the caretakers and the cleaning staff for providing such a great get away for us both!!
