Such a beautiful location right on the beach! I loved that fresh fruit was provided in the morning. The staff were all so friendly and welcoming, and the house was spacious and clean! Thank you Stefan for having us in your beautiful vacation homes!

This was our first trip to Santa Teresa. We did not know really what to expect. We are a family of surfers so that is why we picked this spot. Santa Teresa is quaint, simple, and very scenic. The waves were a perfect sandy bottom beach break, uncrowded and plentiful. We stayed at Casa Yin Yang. It is very roomy,...

Casa Yin Yang is all you could want and more while staying in Santa Teresa. Marta is a wonderful concierge and will make sure that your every need is met. We highly recommend having Chef Aaron come in and prepare you some amazing meals. There is a grocery store right across the street so its really easy to stock up....

Our casa was incredible. The marble floors, counter tops and showers are beautiful. The home is spacious and very comfortable. The pool table outside added some fun to our stay and the private pool is exquisite. Marta the concierge was very helpful and accommodating and booked a couple of great tours for us.

We just returned from a 10 day vacation in Santa Teresa with a big family group of 11 people that included 3 grandmas and two families including teenagers and a 7 year old. The villa suited everyone. We rented 2 of the homes which was a great way for everyone to have their own space but we could all hang...

Casa Yin Yang was the perfect spot! Marta greeted us with enthusiasm, helping with any little detail to make the house feel like home. Easy access to incredible beach which is perfect for my almost 80yr Mom to enjoy her walks. The wave machine did not dissapoint either! Every day we rode awseome waves and ate delicious food. Paraíso!!!

The entire property has a feeling of being comforted and welcomed. From the gated entry and direct beach access outside to all the comforts of home (and then some) inside. The staff is welcoming, always helpful and Marta arranged for our massages in house which were amazing! We got amazing local food and were planning our return before we left....

We just returned from a wonderful stay at Casa Morpho in Mariposa Vacation Homes. We have visited the Santa Teresa area many times and this was truly a stay to remember.

Shortly thereafter we were contacted by Marta, the expert and...

Casa Yin Yang at Mariposa is the place to stay in Santa Teresa! As soon as you enter the gated compound you are surrounded by a tropical oasis.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Mariposa Private Beach homes began as little more than a dream and a vacant parcel of land in 2003. Our mission is to offer private, well built, clean and comfortable houses with everything necessary to enjoy quality vacation time with your family and friends. This is an ongoing project, and every year we continue to make improvements to our infrastructure, houses and gardens. We are committed to becoming as sustainable and community friendly as possible. Our employees are 100% local (born and raised) help and we use local products and suppliers whenever possible. We are also founding members of our neighborhood association, know as AVSTN for it’s Spanish acronym, volunteer at the local public school and have served on the board of directors of the local water board and AVSTN. Mariposa Private Beach Home’s commitment to improve the quality of life of our employees and growing town extends beyond our gates, as we are involved in various community projects as the recycle program, monthly beach clean-ups, education programs in the public school, public water, roads and security issues. ... more   less
