Don’t Read This If You Want To Stay In A Boring Hotel


Santa Teresa vacation rentals are not created equal. The Jungle House is the best value beach house right in the heart of Playa Santa Teresa. For an adventurous family, or any group of self-sufficient, adventurous travelers that prefer rustic charms & independence, The Jungle House is the ideal rental near the beach, and everything the town has to offer.

An adventurous family, 3-4 couples, or 6-12 friends traveling together can enjoy renting an entire large house and walk to the beach and the best surf breaks in Costa Rica within five minutes.

What You Get at The Jungle House…

Naturally and artistically designed in a rustic style — accommodations at The Jungle House are 7 rooms in a safe & secure two story, 3400 square foot house built to make you feel intertwined with the natural environment. It feels secluded because we are totally surrounded by big trees, and you can hear the Pacific Ocean.

We are one of the few lodging options on the beach side of the road, which means you don’t have to walk uphill to get back & forth to the beach & town. And, out the front gate is the lively main street with shops & restaurants.

The Jungle House’s upstairs area contains a bar, large & welcoming living room, big comfy sofa, ping-pong table, stereo, two bedrooms and 1.5 bathrooms.

“You instantly felt relaxed as soon as you stepped foot on the property.” (Ben F.)…

With one of Central America’s best beach breaks right outside our backyard, it is perfect for a Costa Rica surf vacation. Forbes Magazine ranked Santa Teresa, Costa Rica one of the top ten most breathtaking beaches in the world!

Its lush tropical scenery, volcanic rock formations, an abundance of wildlife, and proximity to outdoor adventure activities make it one of the best beach towns in Costa Rica. Although The Jungle House is oceanfront, you cannot see the Pacific Ocean due to the dense foliage. To get to the beach & main surf break, it’s just a 5 minute walk to the ocean via a public path.

You’ll definitely feel that you’ve entered an exotic jungle since it is common to see many species of animals in the backyard of the house, including groups of Howler Monkeys, iguanas, butterflies, and a variety of birds.

The setting is great for friends traveling as a group, or families with kids 6 – 18. With the variety of activities available it is ideal for groups that want to spend a lot of time being active together. You can learn to surf, practice yoga, or participate in the many activities offered like, canopy tours, day trips to waterfalls, horseback riding, or just chilling at the beach.

Everyone can come together to cook dinner at home. We have a big BBQ & picnic area, as well as an ample kitchen for making family style dinners. There is a service that delivers delicious veggies, herbs, fruits, and eggs (as well as booze).

“Can’t say enough about how incredible Santa Teresa and the Jungle House are.” (Erick G.)…

Amenities include free Wi-Fi internet all through the house, A/C, ceiling fans all over the house keep it cool, and hot water. On the second level there is a bar area, 10 person leather couch, and ping pong table. Downstairs has a large, common kitchen. The kitchen is ample with everything you need to cook, water filter, coffee maker, and blender for making smoothies. Outside, there’s an outdoor BBQ, a Yoga Studio/Rustic Style Large Hangout Rancho, and a small pool.

The main surf break is 5 minutes away and there are waves for all levels & abilities, warm water and air temps year round, and natural tide pools a few minutes away too. There is secured parking, and we’re conveniently located near grocery stores, shopping, surf shops, and restaurants.

Santa Teresa is a very cool, international town with many great restaurants. It is just a few minutes walking to all the action. Many visitors comment that this section of Santa Teresa is the coolest part of town. Restaurants & markets, surf shops, and the main beach path are all right out our front door.

Our little section of town between Super Ronny #2 & the beach path at Brunela Hostel is always alive with people walking to & from the beach, and going out to eat & drink. There are people from all over the world, and you get a really free feeling as you walk around without a care in the world, meeting other people having a great time too.

Can't say enough about how incredible Santa Teresa and the Jungle House are. Hands down, the place to stay if you travel here. Location is perfect, right in the middle of town, with everything you need within walking distance, yet still private and secure. Joe and the cleaning and maintenance staff were exceptional in their friendliness and hospitality. All in all, the Jungle House met or exceeded every expectation that we had and we will absolutely be back, multiple times. Cheers.
