Casa Yin Yang is gorgeous: beautiful, comfortable, and clean inside and out. Beachfront location is quiet and serene—perhaps too quiet for some, but it was perfect for our family vacation. We were there to relax: surfed the beach right in front of the property, went zip lining in mal pais (which was great fun), and ate really good, simple food...

We have traveled many times to Costa Rica but this was our first trip to Santa Teresa. Casa Monarca was a perfect home for our three families. It was clean, comfortable, safe and easy access to the beach. Marta was awesome and extremely helpful in making our stay amazing. We look forward to our next visit!

We have vacationed at Mariposa Properties many times. It is ALWAYS a top notch experience. The property owner, Stefan, is pleasant and easy to communicate with. The property concierge, Marta, is one of our favorite people! The homes are always clean and well maintained. The property is lush, secure and beach front! We come back to Mariposa Homes every time...

This was my first trip to Costa Rica and it will not be my last! Mariposa provided many comforts but also allowed our group to experience all the adventures held nearby. The actual homes were clean and beautifully decorated and all the staff (especially Marta) were very welcoming. This is a wonderful place to stay for a large group!

This was my second visit to Casa Yin Yang with another couple and three other friends. I was pleasantly surprised with the new remodeling, a fourth bedroom was added which was perfect for three people, tons of room and great layout. The staff took care of every detail during our stay including some of the best meals we had in...

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....

Casa Ying Yang is a piece of absolute paradise. The moment we arrived we were greeted with a very warm welcome from Marta (the concierge). The home was absolutely stunning with gorgeous ocean views and an extensive open air living space. Everything was immaculate ... the bedding, linens, towels, and furnishings were all high quality.

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
