My wife and I travel at least 3 times a year and now, with our little one, we only stay in Air bnb's. This said, Sahira and Freddy are the most lovely, accommodating, and caring hosts that we have ever stayed with. Period. The house is clean, comfortable, and in the best location for walking to the beach, the grocery, and top resturants in town. The only downside is that we can't stay at Zona Azul forever!

Super nice Airbnb! Don't look forward if this one is aviable. Close to all you need and the hosts are simply amazing!

Freddy and Sahira's place is perfect for a comfortable and accommodated stay in Santa Teresa. It's a newly built modern condo that sits on a hill above the main strip just past the entrance to Santa Teresa. The condo is walking distance from everything. The place is as pictured, well maintained and clean with lots of natural lighting from sliding glass doors in each room that offer great views of this tropical paradise. The air conditioning and ceiling fans in each room keep the place cool and the wifi will keep you connected if God forbid you have to do any work or if you desire some nighttime Netflix streaming after an adventurous day. The added plus is having Freddy and Sahira as your hosts. They are amazing people, have a beautiful family, and will go above and beyond to make sure your stay is wonderful. I will definitely be staying here again in my future trips to Santa Teresa.

Sahira and Freddy were extremely warm, helpful, responsive, and hospitable! They were always available to answer any questions we had and were very accommodating. Their place was clean, spacious, and well equipped with everything we needed and more. The location was perfect for going to the beach and eating at the restaurants on the main street. The climb up the hill could be challenging under certain conditions but was not a problem for us! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend the hosts and their property!

We spent four nights in this wonderful airbnb. Sahira and Freddie were wonderful hosts who were extremely welcoming, helpful, and kind. They answered any questions we had about the area, and helped us find things to do during our stay. They also were there to help with any inconveniences and always responded within the hour. The house itself is beautiful and equipped with a full kitchen, wifi, nextflix, nice balcony with dining table. It's attached to their home below, but is a separate entity with its own set of keys. The location is across the street from the beach and a short walk up the hill. So its away from the hustle and bustle of the street, but also not right on the beach. But is just uphill from the mainstream and is a short walk from the grocery store, beach, and restaurants. Only downside was the noise of the construction happening next door, which will likely finish soon.

This was the ideal AirBNB experience, with all the comforts of home hidden just a few minutes from the beach. We really made this our home for the week so long review incoming *airhorn*. Sahira and Freddy were wonderful hosts, meeting us at the door with flowers, local coffee and beer, and sticking around for a late checkout so we could squeeze in one last trip to the tide pools. Our party was pretty busy throughout the week with local friends and we didn't get to interact much IRL, but the hosts are avid surfers and happy to share tips for new visitors. The home is located 3 minutes up a hill from the main road of Playa Carmen. Its steep and can be daunting during the midday sun, but also means you're away from the noise and neverending dust of the main drag. Plus, hiking is part of the Costa Rican (URL HIDDEN) ATV rentals (not sure of the company name, but our contact named Alex was great) were right at the bottom of this hill. Quads aren't necessary to get up and down, but made exploring the area so much fun - especially the back road to Montezuma with its crazy turns and mini river crossings. We took a fishing trip out of Malpais and the casa kitchen was well equipped with cookware to prepare the day's catch. BYO basics like oil, salt etc. Groceries (and more beer) were also close by with Super Ronny's#1 at the end of the street. No matter how many cervezas you had at Kikas on Thursday, make sure to get down there for the weekly produce delivery Friday morning. The hungover walk is worth it for the best selection. The family lives downstairs, but concrete floors made it feel entirely separate. Perfect for our early morning missions and late night returns. Besides some joking around with the kids as we struggled with our ATVs, I think we heard more of the local wildlife than each other. No monkey or sloth sightings on the patio for me but maybe you'll get lucky. Wifi was good even with 4 of us in use, and the AC reliably frigid for hiding out in the afternoon. I'd love to return to Malpais one day and try sleeping in a rustic cabina by the beach to escape my online job...but in the remote work world, this is the perfect fit. We'd be back in a second. Thanks again, Sahira & Freddy!

We are a family of ex-pats from Los Angeles. A year ago we sold everything, took the kids and the pets, and moved to Costa Rica. Often called "the happiest country on earth", the little town of Santa Teresa was the antidote to our stressed-out lives. Now come play in our paradise and discover pura vida for yourself!
