Description of the Playa Santa Teresa vacation villa rental
Casa MarBella or Beautiful Sea House in Spanish, was thoughtfully designed and built by a young couple from Florida in 2007 with the dream of settling in paradise. Casa MarBella has and often still is run like a quaint hotel providing the concierge, cleaning, and services of a hotel with the peacefulness and privacy of a private home when rented as such. The villa provides a perfect setting for families, groups of friends or yoga and surf retreats. Tucked into the side of a mountain, Casa MarBella is unique in the since that it is close enough to walk to many restaurants, shops, supermarkets, beaches and banks within 5 minutes, yet far enough to feel like your own oasis away from the hustle of Santa Teresa.

Casa MarBella affords plenty of privacy while still offering a sense of community and togetherness in the common areas. The home has 14 separate bedrooms and 11 bathrooms divided amongst 8 individual "units" surrounding a beautiful infinity pool, sundecks, and a covered yoga deck for groups to gather and enjoy the views. While 6 of the 8 units have full individual kitchens, the other 2 units have mini-refrigerators for guests convenience. All 14 bedrooms are air conditioned, however sleeping with the doors and windows open is an option that allows you to hear the gentle roar of the ocean and the early morning sounds of the howler monkeys and parakeets in the surrounding jungle.
Area Information
Casa Marbella is located on a hillside nestled into the unspoiled tropical jungle overlooking the Pacific Ocean. The casa is approximately 200 meters from the beach (5 minute walk) and many of our visitors comment on the exceptional ocean views that the property affords. Aside from the view, the infinity-edge pool is the centerpiece of the casa. Since the property is situated amongst the tree tops, wildlife and bird watching are a favorite leisure activity for many of our guests. The beach in front is world renowned for its consistent wave conditions that are perfect for beginner to advanced surfers. If there are people surfing in front, they are visible from the hotel. Fishing is also a great bet for this area. A local fishing tour is very affordable and usually very productive. Other favorite local activities include: horseback riding, ATV touring, zip-lines, hiking and waterfalls. If you like nature, you should like Santa Teresa and Casa Marbella puts you in the middle of it all without feeling like it.
Attractions within Walking Distance
The closest beach access is a 5 minute walk. There are also an assortment of restaurants both on or near the beach serving various cuisines. Moreover, a grocery store and the only 2 ATMs in town are also within walking distance.
Nearby Restaurants
There are a variety of cuisines and options to choose from in the area. You can find restaurants serving Italian, Mexican, American, Costa Rican, Argentinian, Asian, and so forth. Also, numerous restaurants can accommodate dietary restrictions and many offer vegetarian and/or vegan options.
Many travelers choose to rent a car so can explore the area and there are a few rental companies right here in town. Another popular form of transportation are ATVs due to their compatibility with the dirt roads here which you can rent. You can also rent bicycles and motorbikes. There are taxis too.
