“Staying at Villa Lagarto is the best place to spend your vacation in Costa Rica”
Reviewed 7 April 2015 for a stay in July 2013

I have spent 2 vacations at Villa Lagarto and have another trip planned for this summer. I can't wait to stay at the Villa. It has all the comforts of home in paradise. The owners are super accommodating, amazing, friendly, and really made all of our visits special and easy. Their home is extremely clean and relaxing, with all modern appliances, and great decor. The outdoor space is perfect for BBQing and entertaining friends. We found the proximity to the beach, surfboard and ATV rentals, shops and restaurants very convenient. We spent most of our days on the beach and exploring all the great sites and activities of the area. I highly recommend Villa Lagarto for your next Costa Rican vacation.

“The most incredible adventure paradise vacation spot”
Reviewed 7 April 2015 for a stay in March 2013

Went for a second time on my birthday week with my then girlfriend. We had an amazing time. Rented an ATV down the street from the house and ventured off to more locations we missed the first time around. Went surfing. Had many delicious juices. Saw tons of wildlife. Had excellent food at the many restaurants in the area. Found a secret beach. The warm climate and gentle waves put me into relaxing trance. The friendly diverse people we met were extremely inviting. It was painful leaving. Going back in 2 months. STOKED!!!

“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.
