Santa Teresa home
This is a beautiful property just up the hill from the main center of Santa Teresa. It is private, very comfortable, and has a view of the bay. Many birds, iguanas, and occasional monkeys. We cooked our meals and easy access to the grocery. Highly recommend.
A Beautiful and Relaxing Oasis Near the Beach
I have nothing but good things to say about our trip to Santa Teresa and our stay in Casa Sol y Sombra. For starters, Siggi was a fabulous host, helping us line up all kinds of activities like surfing lessons and fishing trips. Every step of the way she was friendly and helpful. Rarely did I have to wait more than 15 minutes for a response from her when we were unsure about where to go or what to do.
Our family - two adults and two teens - felt very comfortable and happy during our entire stay. The house is amazing! It is all beautifully crafted as you can see from the pictures. The upstairs bedroom was so nice with open air, screened windows and plenty of fans to keep us cool in the evenings.
Probably our favorite thing about the place was the pool. After a hot afternoon zip-lining through the canopy, there's really nothing better than relaxing in the pool and having a beer. After, a rinse in the outdoor shower, and lounging around the open air patio / living / dining area makes for a perfect evening.
The whole trip was magical - in no small part because of Siggi and her place.
Our family of 5 (3 young boys) had a wonderful stay at Sombra y Sol. The howler monkeys and iguanas in the trees were the delight of our children and really reminded us where we were. Siggi is so extremely kind and thoughtful and has created a truly lovely space.
We visited in March which is quite warm but with a perfect pool in the shaded back yard we were very comfortable and happy to spend our days just relaxing at the house. We loved getting to know the area and the town of Santa Teresa. We are already planning our next trip back and would stay at Sombra y Sol again in a heartbeat!
Beautiful villa above Santa Teresa
I have nothing but good things to say about Siggi and her gorgeous home. This alone is the basis of my 5-star rating. Santa Teresa is not for everyone but the negative parts are not in Siggi's control. She went out of her way to make our stay comfortable and fun. Months before we arrived she helped with transportation information (fly domestic or take the ferry out to Santa Teresa), she helped with rental car information which proved invaluable, she provided suggestions on things to do in the area and she was very attentive and responsive when we were there. It was just me and my husband so we had plenty of room. There is a large open air living / dining area and back porch and then the gorgeous infinity pool. Siggi has someone come every day and take care of the pool and garden. The upstairs bedroom is very breezy with windows on three slides and gorgeous screens. There is also a sitting area in the bedroom. My favorite place was the outside terrace deck that overlooks the ocean. There are two chairs out there but also a tanning bed. The best was waking up in the morning with a breeze blowing through and listening to the howler monkeys, birds, and cicadas. The bathroom is big and the shower is very nice with adequate pressure (water comes from a tank and is delivered). Toilets are on septic tank so you can't flush any paper. This is very common in central american countries and does not bother us but for some it may be, well, gross. The soiled paper goes in a covered waste basket so not a big deal. Even at some of the best places in town you can't flush paper. So the fact there the villa had no air conditioning did not really bother us the first few days. But then it got unseasonably hot and the breeze went away and it was uncomfortable. But I just went in the pool and Siggi has fans everywhere! Oh, I also want to mention that Siggi had a big watercooler for water and she left us beverages and fruit which I thought was very kind.
Now for the town of Santa Teresa. I'm so sorry do say this was a bit of a let down. The roads are just too bad (unpaved), many pot-holes and you are trying to avoid four-wheelers, bicycles, and people. Its a little scary. Sanitation is not great either so there's often a garbage smell in the air. BUT, the beaches are indescribably beautiful and it is very true that the Pura Vida vibe about the place is contagious. The people are friendly and kind. The food is amazing. It is fresh and tasty.
We just finished a truly wonderful week stay at Sol & Sombra. We were two couples and the house was great and we would highly recommend to others. Siggi (owner) was great to work with both before and during our first visit to Santa Teresa. She offered great suggestions for activities, restaurants, etc.
We rented a 4WD car for the week (opted out of renting ATVs) and it worked out great. Driving around the area can be a bit adventurous but not a problem for anyone who has travelled some. 4WD definitely necessary both to get up to the house on the short but steep hill from the main road and also for getting to some other areas in Mal Pais and elsewhere. The house location is ideal, being both easily walkable to lots of great restaurants and the beach.
We went fishing with Miguel (Mincho) out of Mal Pais and would highly recommend him to anyone interested in doing a 1/2 day of fishing. CURU Wildlife Reserve was also great and while a bit of a drive (hour +) we saw lots of monkeys and other wildlife. We were truly amazed at how great the food was in the local restaurants. Some of our favorites were; The Bakery (really great breakfast), Banana Beach, Habaneros (both on the beach) and Katana. We had a special love of Drift, which serves a wide variety of amazingly good cold-pressed cocktails (including to go liters) and also great tapas while at the restaurant. Ronny's #1 down the hill from the house is a great grocery store. We also had Siggi arrange for a chef for one night (Mariya) and she was a wonderful person and a great chef and we would highly recommend asking if she is available for a night, though all of the restaurants are so wonderful.
Beaches were long, wide and stunning. Coming down to watch the sunset with the rest of the town each night was a wonderful experience and one we will not soon forget. People are very friendly and the whole area has a great, low-key vibe. Since it was the dry season, it was sunny and hot everyday. There is definitely a good amount of dust kicked up everywhere from the road, but you get used to it quickly and the house itself is set up on the hill in a truly wonderful jungle setting with a great plunge pool.
We highly recommend a stay at Siggi's fantastic Sol & Sombra and enjoy the Pure Vida life.
