This year, we decided to look for a small, private, exclusive estate, off the beaten paths, far away from mass tourism and big concrete resorts.
The Red Palm Villas were the perfect pick.
We rented the Honeymoon villa, built in the middle of a tropical garden (huge magnificent old spicky trees, lemon trees, grapefruit trees, and of course amazing red palms by the dozen).
This is a perfect villa for a romantic stay or even for a vacation with friends, because it is large enough and offer privacy.This villa has a large open patio with very comfy furnitures to hang out feeling at home but enjoying the beautiful outdoors in a shaded spot.
There are 2 bedrooms with king size beds. The master bedroom has a little cozy area with a table and a sofa, a safe, and is totally AC.
The bathroom, right across the hall in front of the bedroom is just a jewel. The shower is HUGE, made of an amazing mosaic, it is open air with an ocean view if you are tall enough. The living area and the kitchen are upstairs, along with the 2nd bedroom. The view from up there is spectacular, and we sure have unforgattable memories of stunning sunsets enjoyed from there.
After our daily walk on the beach of Santa Teresa (where you feel the beach is yours because it is NEVER crowded), we would rest on the very nice beach chairs or hammocs, from where we could sometimes observe a whole family of monkeys crossing the property from branch to branch on the almond trees.... Just adorable!
In the evening, the ritual is the sunset on the beach, and then off to one of the little restaurants around Red Palm Villas, all at a walking distance.
All in all, this was one of our best vacations.
The staff was professional, efficient, always smiling. Everything is done so that you can rest without worrying about anything, they handle the logistics!
A place off the beaten paths, with plenty of things to do and visit if you need action (beautiful waterfalls a few miles away)!
