An oasis is the best way to describe it, one in which you can relax completely. The Casa has a beautiful pool. The rooms are all very...

Sitting a top a hill, looking out over the Ocean, Casa MarBella is Tranquil, Beautiful, Clean, and Very Welcoming!

I took 19 people to Casa Marbella for a yoga retreat in November. It's the perfect space for a group as it's spacious but also private.

Casa Marbella is a perfect oasis. Andre was an excellent host. Santa Teresa is a wonderful place to disappear for a week. Spend lots of time outside, surfing, fishing, hiking and return to luxury in the evenings.

This was my third trip to Casa MarBella. It is a wonderful property with great views and an intimate feeling. The owners are very helpful and accommodating and fun. The town is small enough to get around without transportation and there are many great restaurants. The hotel is great for a medium sized group that can take all the rooms...
