About this property

Stately Villa on 3.5 Acres with Surfing out Front
La Casona is a vacation villa for rent in Santa Teresa on one of the most beautiful beachfront properties in the whole area with incredible surfing directly in front. We built La Casona with the help of skilled local carpenters of locally harvested timber, hand milled on the property.

The House
La Casona, which means Stately Home in Spanish, is a stunning, and supremely comfortable Costa Rican Colonial style building with rustic beams, polished white concrete and teak floors, high ceilings and airy verandas that encircle the building. It has five air conditioned bedrooms all facing the pool and the ocean and 5 bathrooms. Sleeps up to 11 guests.

It is furnished in exotic Tropical style with beautiful and comfortable rattan sofas and armchairs and offers a fantastic chef's kitchen with professional 6-burner gas stove and huge stainless steel fridge/freezer. Many furnishings and textiles come from our travels around the world.

There is a deep pool, pool-table, day-beds and many hammocks for lounging as well as Palm-roofed Ranchos. There is a pool table and a large Yoga platform that easily accommodates twelve yogis.  There is WIFI and a film screen with projector and a huge library of DVDs.

For Larger Groups
Needing more space? Rent the magical guest house, The Palm Grove, which has an additional three bedrooms and three bathrooms. Renting both homes means the property can sleep up to 19 guests. The Palm Grove is situated on the same property and has its own pool. It is close but totally independent from La Casona.

Santa Teresa Beach and Surfing
La Casona Hacienda rests on three and a half beach front acres. The beach front grounds abound with Coconut Palms, Mango trees, Papaya, Water Apple, Banana and Platano trees drawing a lot of visiting Monkeys, squirrels and exotic birds. We have our own fruit! 

There is excellent surfing right in front you'll never need to get into a car to drive to a surf break. If you do desire more variety however there are numerous surf breaks of all types within just a few miles of the house.  Guests have a large choice of activities for all ages, from adventure excursions on horseback along the beaches (We have two horses!) to flying through the tree tops on a zip line or relaxing with a massage under the palm trees or a private Yoga session at dawn or sunset. We can also provide surf instruction, beauty treatments, fishing, horseback riding and meditation.

Destination Weddings
We also do Spectacular Weddings! We have an amazing Moroccan tent for large events.
Daily maid service, Laundry, Chef available by request (local Costa Rican dishes or International Cuisine). Resident Caretaker and security on the property. We can provide Baby Sitting.

This property is located near Mar Azul. Mar Azul is a left hand point break that also has a right with the correct swell direction. South swells with an outgoing tide make for the best waves. The peak begins at a large rocky slab that can be exposed on low tide. There is also an easy-going inside peak that can work well and offer long (200 meters) rides. Mar Azul is somewhat fickle, not breaking all the time, but when it does break it is one of the best advanced surf spots in Malpais.

This property is also located near Playa Santa Teresa. A 2km stretch of some of the most consistent beachbreak on the Central Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. The beach's Southeast/Northwest orientation makes it ideally exposed to swell angles from below 195 to over 220 degrees; although it breaks best with SSW combo swells. While ostensibly a sandbar beach break, the unique bottom configuration of sand over rock reef gives form to the consistently breaking peaks for which Santa Teresa is famous. These well-groomed sandbars offer peaky, punchy rights and lefts that are just plain fun when it is under head high. But the game changes once the swell goes overhead, offering up juicy outside walls that connect into grinding inside barrels.

This property is also located near Roca Mar/Suck Rock. A grindy, challenging right hand reef break located at the West end of Playa Santa Teresa. It is also known as "Suck Rock," because the wave jacks up out of deep water, doubling up over a dry reef as it peels across into deeper water. Deep, spitting tubes are the reward for skirting the "Dreaded Spine."

This property is also located near Mim's. Mim's (or Back Reef) - just 200 meters around the corner from Roca Mar is this deepwater right-hander that begins to show her stuff at double overhead and above, offering steep take-offs and long, winding walls. When all the stars are in proper alignment, this powerful reef wave can connect all the way through the bowl at Roca Mar, dropping you off breathless and stoked in the shorebreak past Casa Cecilia!
