About the property

Casa Calyx is located on a hilltop with surf-to-horizon views of Santa Teresa beach, Costa Rica. While a ten minute walk will put your toes in the ocean, the property is a tranquil retreat above our bustling town. The driveway is steep to get up here, so a 4x4 is a must.

Completed in November 2016, the house is built on two levels, with natural teak beams and local wood accents throughout. Though bedrooms are equipped with air conditioning, we rarely use it as the full height bi-fold windows and Caribbean shutters encourage the sea breeze to flow. The house consists of two upper-level bedrooms (queen and twin/king) with ensuites, and an open plan common area on ground level with modular lounge that can be converted for sleeping. There is a half bath on ground level, full kitchen, and passionfruit arbors providing outside shade. There is no tv in Casa Calyx, we do have fiber optic wifi. Our caretaker, Jairo, lives on site and provides security and groundskeeping.

About The Owner


I grew up in western Canada and now call Santa Teresa my home. I work as a chef on a private boat which takes me away often. My house was completed in November 2016, and I spend as much time as I can there. I am passionate about the ocean, growing and preparing good food, yoga, and engaging in meaningful interactions with the people around me. Pura Vida!

The Owner purchased this house in 2014

Why The Owner chose Santa Teresa Beach

I first came to Santa Teresa on a surf trip and immediately fell in love with the genuine, open, and positive feel of this town and the international people it attracts. On my second trip down, I found an incredible piece of land and started designing Casa Calyx.

What makes this house unique

I love the design of my house and it's location... We are just high enough above town to escape the noise and dust of the main road, but can still walk down to ST beach in 10 minutes. The view is exceptional, both on the seaside and jungle side, and the mountain breeze keeps us cool. The house opens almost completely with floor-to-ceiling windows and doors, and I love the simplicity of the concrete walls, white-wash ceilings and teak beams. There are often howler monkeys and flocks of tucans in the tree tops level with our bedroom windows. This is an incredible place to wake up in the morning :)

Amazing ocean views from the entire house!

  • 5 of 5

This house is beautiful. There are two upstairs bedrooms that each have their own full bathroom. The views from each room are stunning. Our trip was two couples and the rooms were so comparable, each couple felt happy. The pool is really nice and there's a patio next to it, both have great views of the ocean. The host was super nice. The driveway up to the house does require a 4x4 for sure. The windows open up and allow a nice breeze to come through the house too, so it didn't get hot.

Tranquil, soul soothing & perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't be happier with our choice to stay at Casa Calyx. It's location is ideal, just far enough up to provide cooling breezes, and spectacular ocean and jungle views. The aesthetic is clean, simple and elegant with native hardwood, polished concrete and floor to ceiling windows throughout. A very relaxing spot super close to the beach and town.
