vacation rental description

The Milarepa

Milarepa brings you back to nature with a relaxing and unique private beachfront setting. Located just north of the Cabo Blanco National Park on the unspoiled southern coast of the Nicoya Peninsula. Milarepa is a romantic tropical escape, set amongst the rainforest and coconut palms at the foot of the Pacific Ocean. Our beachfront property offers spectacular ocean views and unforgettable sunsets. The property consists of a pool-side open-air pavilion dinning room/ living room area, with an attached commercial kitchen and bathroom.. For lodging we have 4 Indonesian inspired bungalow-style bedrooms with open air, en suite bathrooms. The Bungalows are open to nature on all sides and are designed to sit harmoniously within this tropical beach environment. The antique four-poster beds are curtained with voluminous mosquito nets and cooled by overhead fans and feature 300 thread count Egyptian cotton linens. The primary building materials are bamboo and teak for a stylish rustic charm not previously seen in Costa Rica. There are several large mango and Bodhi trees which are home to a large family of howler monkeys. For the past decade Milarepa has been a favorite hideaway for celebrities, athletes, rock stars, and fashion icons.

The Beach

The surf and sea are just a few short steps from your bungalows and feature some of the best surf breaks in Central America. At mid to low tide there are several gorgeous tide pools located directly in front of the property. There is no public access to the pristine white sand beach just in front of Milarepa so at many times of the year you have it all to yourself.

Services

Our in-house concierge service can arrange everything you’ll require to complete the perfect getaway. We can provide some of the countries finest private chefs for an inspired tasting menu one night then a local cook for “typical” Costa Rican meal the next. We also offer beverage and wine service, relaxing or therapeutic massage, juice and raw food cleanses, private yoga classes, pilates classes, surf lessons, surf tours, quad tours, canopy tours, and restaurant recommendations and reservations. Daily house keeping is included at no additional cost.

Getting here

Santa Teresa is located on the southern tip of Costa Rica’s Nicoya Peninsula. Once you’ve you arrived in San Jose you can either drive or fly here. At your request we can coordinate your private charter flights, helicopter services, car rentals, and taxi service to get you here comfortably. Should you choose to drive we will send you detailed directions.

Perfection

Review submitted: February 17, 2014   Date of arrival: January 4, 2014

I could not be more effusive about Milarepa. My only reluctance in fully sharing how magical, comfortable, and gracious Milarepa is, is that this place is so perfect I want to keep knowledge of it as a precious secret for my family alone.

Clearly not making that choice, Milarepa is a quiet retreat, perfectly located to journey to nearby adventures. Caroline and her impeccable staff available to arrange everything from grocery shopping to trail rides.

We chose to have Caroline arrange to have Martha cook breakfast and lunch, and we either cooked dinner or went to one of the nearby restaurants for dinner. It was a perfect combination and worked seamlessly, and although I do have adult children who love to cook, even if your family does not have chefs "in house" the kitchen is user friendly and grocery stores nearby.

The proximity to the beach combined with the peaceful and private setting of the resort allow great flexibility in activity choices -- some can surf, while others read on their bungalow porch, and all join together for meals or a sunset.

This past January was our second visit, and we will certainly be returning again.

Owners response: Dear Ann,

It has been such a pleasure to share the magic of Milarepa with you and your family! We are so grateful to have such a special property that allows our guests to enjoy the best of Santa Teresa! Look forward to welcoming you back soon!
Kindest regards,
Caroline

Incredible property in paradise!

Review submitted: June 16, 2013   Date of arrival: May 30, 2013

Dear Caroline,

You have an incredible slice of paradise! My family and I loved it very much and we can’t wait to come back.

We loved the beautiful surroundings and how close to nature it felt, with the plants, flowers, insects, lizards, birds and sea. Coming from the city it was a much welcomed and appreciated change of pace for the whole family. We didn't even mind being woken by the monkeys in the morning. It was just beautiful to listen to them howling away as the sun came up.

Food wise, it was really good, lots of great area restaurants to choose from and we even treated ourselves to a private chef for one very special gourmet dinner. We also loved having the option of cooking for ourselves in the kitchen on the nights we chose to stay in. Starting our days with Martha’s “gallo pinto” and fresh tortillas were one of the many highlights, and the other breakfasts she provided were all beautifully done. We especially loved the fresh green coconuts!

On the whole, we loved how personal and private our stay at the Milarepa was. It was clean, serene, gorgeous and had a relaxed jungle vibe. The bungalow bedrooms were simple, but perfect and comfortable. The surfing was excellent as was the yoga.

I guess to sum it up, we'll be back for sure. We will also recommend to friends who love the outdoors and will appreciate the nature and rustic appeal.

Thank you again for your hospitality and arranging all of our activities. Should you and you family make it to NYC please don’t hesitate to contact us. Pura vida!

Warmest regards, Doug, Kelly, Alex, Diane, and Tyler

“paradise... simply amazing.”

Review submitted: May 29, 2013   Date of arrival: January 7, 2013

From the moment we arrived til the moment we had to leave (very hard to...) the experience at Milarepa was unforgettable and perfect in every way. The bungalows are beautifully integrated into the environment and simple... they had the necessary to feel comfortable and relaxed. The open-air bathrooms are lovely. Jesica and Nauel (hope i'm spelling his name right) were both remarkable hosts, they made us feel at home and offered to help us in any way and gave us great tips for the area. The dinners are absolutely delicious and fresh, chef Sebastian is a great cook and prepared fresh daily menus. We had the best tuna tartar and mahi mahi ever... I highly recommend The Milarepa!
