Our stay here was wonderful! This place is a gem. The location is in a great part of town, close to the grocery store, places to eat and, of course, the amazing beach. We had some travel issues and arrived late, but Greg waited there to see us in and tell us all about his beautiful and well-maintained property. Before...

We happened upon this place on airbnb. It was everything we needed. The entire place is enclosed in a gate so there is a definite security that we appreciated. I'm a full time filmmaker and was in Costa Rica filming stock footage. With so much expensive equipment, that was definitely nice to feel safe. Right across the was was a...

Villa Solar is the perfect place to stay in Santa Teresa. First, Greg the owner is super helpful with anything you need for your stay. He can help you with restaurant and tour recommendations as well as surf spots. Greg and his father run the place and are great people. They are a pleasure to be around. The 2-bedroom unit...

My wife and I stayed at Villas Solar for 13 days and it was spectacular! From the time we arrived, Greg and the properties caretakers made us feel right at home with friendly advice and information on the local area. Safety was never a concern and they do a great job of keeping the grounds very clean and looking nice....

I could not have asked for a better accommodation for the 10 days spent in Costa Rica. Location was ideal for proximity to the beach and surrounding shops/restaurants. The house was clean, quiet and had all the amenities needed. Greg was a fantastic host, easy to reach and very helpful with any questions we had

Best place we stayed our entire stay in Costa Rica! Greg and the staff were super helpful and very welcoming! Only complaint is that we didn't have enough time at this amazing spot!! Near lots of good restaurants and little souvenir shops. Luna the dog was the sweetest thing ever!

Good value for a family. Very clean. Good location. Good security. A lot of space. Not a 5 star hotel but everything you need for a nice family vacation. No pool, but you are a block from one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. For a 2 bedroom with large living room and air conditioning it is a...

Thanks for the review Scott. I am glad you found me to be very helpful and our place is a very good value, very clean, with good security and a good location right near a beautiful beach. Although, we never claimed to be a 5 star hotel with a pool, so I hope you didn't find us to be misleading....

We spent 3 nights here and it fit our needs perfectly. From the start, dealing with Greg was easy and informative. We stayed in Villa Papaya with our daughter and it was comfortable and clean. The secure and private/gated parking was very convenient and at no time did we feel unsafe, even though the advice we read before we traveled...

Villa Solar was a beautiful spot with easy access to all of the local spots in Santa Teresa. Greg was a wonderful host; he had my friend and I set up in the Papaya house. It was very hot during the days, but both of the bedrooms are equipped with ac units that kept us very comfortable throughout the night....
