About the Owner

Cristina and Dante are italians and spent many years living in the states. During one of their travel they came upon Santa Teresa and fell in love with it. It's the perfect spot to get away from it all.

Cristina and Dante are green home designers and builders, and thought about bringing their expertise here to build an ecologically friendly house resort.

Relaxing and comfortable Balinese Villa in Playa Hermosa

  • 5 of 5
Just came back from staying at this Balinese Villa. The place is well decorated - looks just like the pictures. Enjoyed relaxing on the Bali style furniture and dipping into the pool when it got hot. Loved the open air style of the main area while sleeping in air conditioned rooms at night. The villa provides privacy and is a short walk to the beach. Dahlia and her husband provided us with recommendations for restaurants and set us up with a great surf instructor (Mauricio) as well as spear fishing. They came every morning to make sure we that we had everything we needed and answer all of our questions. We really appreciated all their help and hospitality. I highly recommend this beautiful and relaxing Costa Rican getaway. My family and I look forward to the next time we have the opportunity to visit.

An amazing holiday in a wonderful place with all my family

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent three weeks in the astonishing Batik Blue villa from mid July to beginning of August. The house, with its unique architectural style, was very comfortable to live in, clean, well-decorated and furnished. My children greatly appreciated the pool, just in the middle of the house. The beach is only two-minute walk from the house and we had a great time playing in the ocean. We had a lot of interesting things to do, such as horse rides and guided tours, organised by the owners and their staff, who were always extremely friendly and efficient.

Great House and Location... We loved it !

  • 5 of 5
I stayed at Batik Blue with my husband and another couple.

Before arrival, dealing with Cristina was a breeze. She was extremely responsive and very professional and cordial. She also put us in touch with Dahlia, the concierge, who was extremely helpful before hand and also very responsive and helped us arrange our yoga classes and Curu trip in advance which was great knowing that we already had some things lined up before arriving to avoid from worrying once we get there.

We rented a 4 x 4 car upon Cristina's recommendation which was essential considering the roads in Santa Teresa but we soon got used to it ....

Upon arrival, we were totally taken away by the beauty of the house and the nature surrounding it. The house is in impeccable condition with all ammenities in the kitchen and was one of the most beautiful set ups I have been in. We even said, we would be totally fine just staying the whole week inside ...

The beach is a very short walk away on a mud road and we did not realize before that it is actually one of the least rocky beaches. If you want to take Surf classes, we used Daniel at Surf 360. the beach rarely has anyone and walking along it is a great way to clear anyone's mind...

Our trip to Curu was a total success especially going to Tortuga islands which are truely serene and beautiful with great snorkeling and diving.

We bought supplies from the US and cooked several nights but there are some really great restaurants also there. Brisas del Mar is a clear winner.

Overall, we could not have asked from anything better from the people of the house Cristina and Dahlia and those we were introduced to including Nancy our wonderful yoga teacher and Jose our Curu guide. The beauty of the house helps you feel like you are in a truely special place also.

Thank you again Cristina and Dahlia and we hope to come back soooon to wonderful Costa Rica and to Batik Blue.

Most unique, exotic house and location with the best service possible

  • 5 of 5
Just spent a week here with friends and only have great things to say
about the house and location. The architecture, furniture, and details
are magnificent. The pool is great and the deck and garden next to it
great for lounging in the sun or in the shade.

The home is steps from a wonderful beach, blends beautifully with
nature with an open air architecture that works well for the dry heat
of the Nicoya Peninsula. Decor of this home is world class - including
the functionality of the kitchen and relax areas, pool and rooms.
This is not your typical home, this is something very special, and
close to the heart of anyone who is ecological minded, and can
appreciate a different approach to architecture.
Skip the resorts. Skip Mexico (makes you sick) and Hawaii (makes you
sick of paying). Shop for groceries in the local store, meet the
people, speak broken spanish, surf the best waves in the world. Get
your 4x4, bring your suntan lotion and some books and pick the road
less traveled. Get there before the dirt roads become paved and the
resorts come in!

Luxury Vacation in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Our family of five were going to Costa Rica for a long - really long -
vacation. We knew we were going to stay in one place for two months,
and we did a lot of research and considered several locations. We
spoke with several villa owners and knew we had found heaven on earth
when we decided on Batik. The owners were extraordinary from the
first point of contact - we felt taken care of from the first email.
And their dedication continued throughout our stay (we got to know
them well as they were also there for part of our stay).

The property is just gorgeous - true luxury nestled in marvelous
surroundings. The villas (and we stayed in two of them during our
visit) are wonderful - beautifully designed, Bali-style. They are
very spacious, with wonderful open-air living rooms, and tremendous
attention to detail. True homes, which invite lounging, relaxing,
sunbathing, entertaining. And as if the property and the great
swimming pools weren't enough, you truly have gorgeous Playa Hermosa -
a fantastic surfing beach - as your backyard. Our three kids (11, 7
and 7) had a blast, whether we spent the day on the beach or in the

The service at the property is outstanding - the owners, the concierge
and the staff were all extremely helpful; we felt we became part of an
extended family. Our whole stay was absolutely flawless, a huge
testimony to the quality of the property and its staff.

Given our long stay, we truly got to know Santa Teresa, Playa Hermosa,
and Mal Pais. We visited other properties, got to know the other
beaches and just about everything else about the area. The magic of
Batik is its privacy, you are a few minutes drive from the "center" of
Santa Teresa, but you live practically in the jungle, surrounded by
wildlife and vegetation, in incredible peace and quiet. We cannot
think of any place in the area to match Batik. We are certainly
coming back!

This is a five star location with 5 star staff and owners. Christina made us feel like long time friends. Dahlia and the staff were always available and most helpful. The house was well beyond all expectations. The open concept truly makes you feel like you are living in the middle of a tropical paradise. The beach, the surf and the sunsets, virtually right out your door are all spectacular. The local restaurants were first class. Would highly recommend to anyone.

From the Owner

We fell in love with Santa Teresa, and particularly with playa Hermosa the first time we came here, in 2001. We traveled extensively, and when we arrived in this paradise, we knew we had found a real gem.
