Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 7, 2014
3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3,5 Baths (Sleeps 8)

CASA JAVA - The Jewel, the Crown being Northern Santa Teresa beach.

This house was first built 400 years ago on the Indonesian island of Java.

Now, thanks to our family's deep connection to Indonesia, this beautiful ancient teak house stands on Santa Teresa's charming, endless white sand, most exclusive Northern beach.

We are near the famous FlorBlanca (as featured in Vogue's most exclusive Hotels)and Milarepa, in front of perfect surf. Our sunsets are famous.

Casa Java oozes a cozy funkiness at the same time has a slick and modern look. It has been converted into a modern, super comfortable house whilst retaining all the wonderful 400 years old original features of ancient hardwood, beautiful painted wooden balconies and stunning carvings on door/window frames.

Casa Java is very romantic, like a jewel, and perfect for Honeymooners or just 'chilled' holiday makers. It is also a perfect wedding venue for small events.

Watch another incredible sunset, have a Gourmet dinner in one of our many superb Restaurants,

Go to sleep in beautiful linen, cool A/C, soothing sounds of the Pacific, smell the ancient wood from Indonesia, you are in Paradise.

Engulfed by exotic plants and lush jungle, we are often visited by the local Iguanas, all sorts of tropical bird species and the beautiful Howler Monkeys famous for their loud barking

Dear Carlota, thanks for this!



We loved Java, and the whole set up, it really was flawless, and we all had such a great time!



Well done my dear, you have wonderful taste, and it shows, not only in the physical beauty of your houses, but the perfection of your entire staff, and the complete "presentation" to your guests -



You take care - and so many thanks again!!!

Casa Java is everything all these reviews note and more - it was time for my husband & I to get away from the rat race and to arrive at Casa Java was an instant unwind - it is amazing. Though then we started to have some fun with (trying) to learn to Surf (Mick was fantastic), out Fishing to catch our dinner, horse rising, montezuma water fall, hiking, and of course the international cuisine in the many restuarants of Santa Teresa - incredible. We are on our way back home and miss it already. Thanks so much Carlota for your amazing place and thanks Lauren also for looking after us so well. Fingers crossed for our return.

An absolute gem in paradise!

  • 5 of 5
My family and I were fortunate enough to stay at Casa Java for 12 days. It was a dream come true! The house is so unique with endless little nooks and palapas to curl up in and read or take a nap. It is also perfectly situated on the beach and has a lot of privacy. We saw amazing sunsets every night and the surfing was excellent. Much recommended! The staff is also very accommodating and I would encourage having them set you up on some of the local tours (especially snorkeling and horse-back riding) if you have some time. Overall, very classy place!

Most Unique and Remarkable House I've ever visited....

Most Unique and Remarkable House I've ever visited....

Casa Java in a single word: exquisite! Okay, some more words: remarkably appointed! no detail overlooked! This is a beautifully reconstructed Balinese house with gorgeous teak wood carefully reconstructed and with all modern amenities. And the beauty of the 'new' electricity and plumbing is how well all the wires and pipes, etc. are carefully hidden so the natural beauty of the old wood floors, walls and ceiling are preserved. Just walking up to the entrance of the house is an experience in and of itself. Tastefully situated off the main road of Santa Teresa, beautifully landscaped to have a completely natural look, Casa Java is simply fantastic in all aspects. Good-sized kitchen, great open 'living and dining room', intimate infinity pool, outdoor showers, beautifully maintained path to the beach.....don't know what more you could ask for.
A quick jaunt in either direction on the main road leads to great restaurants, small tiendas/grocery stores, sodas/typical CR restaurants, etc.
The owner is a most gracious woman and her staff is incredible, from her concierge (who took care of all our needs) to the great maids and security personnel.
We had our daughter's wedding there, renting both Casa Java and next-door Casa Capitan, and it could only be described as 'magical'. I can't more highly recommend a destination anywhere on the beach than Casa Java.

Another Time and Place

This home is exquisite! It is 400 years old and hand cared for to protect the teak & fine linens. The open kitchen, dining, swimming & lounging makes the experience so welcoming and friendly. The long white beach is only steps away from the two beautiful cabanas and is perfect for long walks, playing in the waves or surfing for all levels. The staff makes you feel at home and continues to care for you even as they step out of site. The town of Santa Teresa could not be more charming and can easily be reached by bike a nice walk or an ATV. This is by far one of the most charming & lovely homes we have stayed in. We were in Paradise and never needed to leave our doorstep.

True paradise. Absolutely unreal.

  • 5 of 5
Photos do NOT do this place justice. The property and house are ridiculous. The detailing of the house and furniture is nothing I have ever seen before. The house was brought here from Indonesia and pieced back together in original form. The open format downstairs is very fun and functional. Steps away to the beach and amazing surf for beginners and advanced. Private beach...it really feels like you are by yourself here. Rare to see many people on the beach, except surfers and a few people walking their dogs. The security and maid service were on point. Ideal.

The location is a short drive or even walk from the house to the quaint town of Santa Teresa. Tons of great restaurants, shops, and fun things to do. It's hard to even leave the house though, because it is so relaxing and comfortable. Highly recommended. There is a bigger house next door, which is gorg, but doesn't have as much character as Java.

Paradise! Perfect Blend of Luxury and Nature!

  • 5 of 5
We visited Santa Teresa from 1/6-1/13 2012. Staying at Casa Java was a dream. The house is the perfect blend of luxury and nature. The bedrooms are crisp and cool set in teak wood, and the outdoor shower is fabulous. The open air living space is incredible- you can be basically in the pool and the living room at the same time. There are day beds for lounging all throughout the property- a different tropical nap each day. The staff was courteous and helpful, and we received a beautiful spread for breakfast each morning. We could not have asked for a better location in the Santa Teresa / Mal Pais area. It is a 5 minute drive to town. We could still get to all the restaurants and bars in town, but come back to our peaceful and private haven. The beach out front is wide and perfectly sandy. We surfed multiple times each day directly in front of the house. There is also a great little restaurant "Al Chile Viola" directly across the street where we had amazing cocktails- ginger mojitos and hibiscus tea concoctions. Other great restaurants were Koji for some of the best sushi ever, Zula for lunch pitas, Brisas del Mar for dinner and amazing view, Vista de Olas for swim up bar and another amazing view, and a fantastic restaurant in Montezuma called Playa de los Artistas- directly on the beach. This trip will give us fond memories to last a lifetime- we definitely hope to return! Thanks to Rachel and Carlota for everything.
