“Perfect Relaxing House by the Beach”
Reviewed 6 April 2015 for a stay in March 2014

person found this review helpful

This is a great vacation house. We stayed over Spring Break and had a great time. It's just a few minutes walk to the beach and also centrally located to the shops/restaurants/cafes in Santa Teresa. We loved the big covered deck/patio and spent most of our evenings relaxing outside on the patio. It's very clean and has all the amenities you need including wifi, a well-equipped kitchen (inluding a blender for great tropical fruit smoothies!), and comfortable beds. Can't recommend it enough - a great way to experience the relaxing/rustic Santa Teresa!

“Perfect spot by the beach”

Stayed at Villa Lagarto back in February & the stay couldn't have been more perfect. Despite leaving NYC in 0 degree weather, the climate in Costa Rica was a perfect sunny 90 degrees everyday. VL was perfectly situated a short block walk from the beach, the main avenue in town & close proximity to some great restaurants. VL is an immaculate, modern home with great amenities such as a covered patio, spacious rooms & AC. The town is a relaxed surfer haven with a myriad of reasonable restaurants & surf side bars.

Villa Lagarto is centrally located in town. Within a few minutes, you can surf the beatiful waves or dine in the local restaurants.
The spacious rooms and comfortable surroundings will surely make you feel at home. I thoroughly enjoyed relaxing on the patio after sightseeing.

“Fantastic stay in a fanastic town!”

We had a great time staying at Villa Lagarto!
Our flight was delayed, and then our rental car took a while to get, but Antonio was very understanding and had no problem meeting us at the house and showing us everything.

The house met all our needs: good size, nice outdoor veranda with a hammock. We spent most of our time there. We were able to cook up breakfasts in the kitchen and make cocktails.
They are only a few minutes from the beach - whcih we loved for morning and afternooon surf sessions. We were also walking distance to many great eats.

Can't wait to come back!

“nice house, great spot - would benefit from a pool”
Reviewed 29 March 2015 for a stay in June 2014

I stayed at Villa Lagarto for an extended period of time, its a nice house that is well equipped and comfortable. The best part was the giant covered deck, you can almost live outside on that deck. Its in a great location, only a few hundred meters from Santa Teresa beach. But it does get hot and humid, so it would be so much better with a plunge pool to cool off a bit!

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?

Thanks so much for your review! We totally agree with you on the pool so I'm very happy to report that we have just started construction on one. It should all be done and ready to be enjoyed by June. Also, I'm happy to report that the bathroom has been upgraded since you've visited.
Thanks!
