Amazing family vacation- we will be back!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a week in paradise at Casa Kalafken! Bettina was so helpful in planning and great communicating with us both before and during our trip. Maricel came to check on us every morning and assisted us in planning activities like zip lining in Montezuma. The pictures are completely accurate and it is beautiful! We had family staying down the road who came over for dinner a few nights but it is also so close to town that we enjoyed all that the area had to offer. There are great tide pools for the kids to the left and the amazing Playa Hermosa to the right. We surfed and boogie boarded with the kids everyday. The housekeeping was perfect! The views and grounds are amazing. Thank you Bettina for a vacation we won't forget and can't wait to repeat!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa K!!! We had three families staying here and had plenty of rooms and hammocks for all of us!! Beds were comfy with crisp white sheets.... daily maid service was perfect and had all the amenities we could ever need. Short walking distance to a great surf spot for beginners (on the inside) and advanced on the outside! A little rocky straight out front, but still could dip in to get wet. Horses were brought to our property for a sunset ride on the beach.....amazing! The sandy beach goes a long way in either direction making it perfect for early morning runs. The openness of the living/kitchen area was beautiful and never felt drafty. The owner has his artwork throughout the house.... colorful and beautiful... very talented:) Best sushi you will ever taste right down the road at Kojis...YUMMM. Bettina and family were amazing hosts and we are very grateful that they opened their home up for us to enjoy!! I would highly recommend Casa K!!

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5
I can't say enough good things about the wonderful week we spent at Casa Kalafken. The compound (because it was so much more than a house) was amazing and the pool beautifuly designed with ample shade and beautiful views. We were 3 families who came to Santa Teresa to surf and quickly discovered we landed in the perfect spot. Playa Hermosa was just up the beach and Pranamar Yoga Retreat Hotel was close by with a great restaurant, yoga classes and spa services. Our hosts went out of their way to help us so that the week went smoothly - from airport shuttles to nature tours and restaurant reservations - they couldn't do enough to make sure we had a fabulous week. Now that we're back home, the only problem I can think of is how soon can we return!

Location

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Tambor Airport at 25 Kilometres Nearest Ferry : Paquera at 45 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : Pranamar Villas Restaurant at 25 Metres Nearest Beach : Playa Hermosa at 10 Metres

Playa Hermosa is considered to be the most beautiful beach around. The area is officially called “San Martin”, but foreigners thought the beach was so beautiful that the area became known as Playa Hermosa (“beautiful beach” in Spanish).

This beach is very long and the flattest beach around. At low tide it’s really huge, and can be epically beautiful for photography, since the wet sand will reflect the setting sun. At high tide, the beach almost disappears, and the surf tends to close out. The best surf time is medium tide. The point break can be surfed at any time of day.

It’s an excellent surf beach, with a wide beach break with lefts and right from the center, and a point break to the north. Beyond this, it’s mostly rocky beaches until Playa Manzanillo, but there are a few beautiful sandy coves that you can often find deserted, and perfect for a romantic picnic.

If you’re looking for a beautiful beach without many people, this is the place for you. It’s a 8 minute drive to Santa Teresa town.

Amenities

From the Owner

Casa Kalafken is designed for family vacations. This Private and secluded property, surrounded by palm trees and one of the more beautiful beaches in Costa Rica and with One of the best secrets of the area just in front of the property, often overlooked by the surf-oriented travelers here, is a giant tidepool. It’s only exposed at low tide, and at that time, you will find a HUGE natural pool, larger than an olympic swimming pool. Filled with all kinds of interesting creatures, including puffer fish and other sea life trapped here from the receding waves, it’s a really great place for families with kids. It’s a great place for them to learn to swim, or learn to snorkel. They can also experience the sea-life close up. Contact us and book your stay at Casa Kalafken today.
