La Perla de Santa Teresa is a gorgeous multi-level, 2 bedroom/2 bathroom home, located within the gated, residential development of Maramar. The property is perfectly situated for those who want just a short walk to both the white-sand beach of Santa Teresa as well as all the vibrant amenities the town has to offer. A pedestrian access just opposite the gates of Maramar will take you down a forested footpath to the beach just north of ‘La Lora’ surf spot. This is a particularly beautiful stretch of beach, fringed with almond trees, coconut palms and offers some of the best surfing in the Santa Teresa area. A short walk either north or south of the Maramar complex will take you to superb restaurants rich in international cuisine, a variety of surf shops, clothing stores, wine bars, and more. Maramar offers 24-hour security, top-notch infrastructure and an elegant 15-meter communal swimming pool complete with restrooms and showers. The first thing you’ll notice as you approach La Perla is its beautiful, private landscape. This stunning tropical garden was created by a professional, award-winning landscape designer and spans all four tiers of the house. The lush plants and brightly colored flowers attract an abundance of butterflies and hummingbirds year ‘round. Three separate ocean view decks/patios, provide private, relaxing spots for enjoying the sunshine, the ocean breezes and the lush gardens. Carefully placed stone retaining walls and drain systems integrated into the landscape ensure the gardens and house are protected from even the heaviest rains. The gardens are equipped with an automatic irrigation system that keeps the landscape magnificent and green throughout the year. There is an outdoor shower at the lower level garden, a refreshing spot for rinsing off sand after a day at the beach. The house spans over four levels capturing ocean breezes at every turn. At the lower level you will find the secure garage, abundant storage and laundry area, with washer, dryer, dedicated on-demand hot water heater and utility sink. A front door beside the garage leads you up the stairs to the kitchen and living room, with floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors that open onto the first floor’s covered balcony. The kitchen is fully-equipped and boasts a beautiful, large polished marble island counter with built-in electric stovetop, modern stainless-steel sink and wood cabinetry with sliding, louvered doors. There is a brand-new stainless steel refrigerator with freezer. A deep, sumptuous corner group sofa, upholstered in luxurious Sunbrella fabric, provides a comfortable retreat where the family can relax and enjoy time together. A staircase leads up to the second floor and the first bedroom, which offers an ocean view from its floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors that open onto a generous wraparound corner balcony. The covered balcony is furnished with comfortable, custom-made solid teak cushioned lounge chairs, matching ottomans and tables. This bedroom has a queen-size bed and ensuite bathroom. The second bedroom, with king-size bed and ensuite bathroom, is nestled in the gardens above the main house, and accessed by a short, cantilevered bridge with additional private stair access to the driveway below. The second bedroom offers complete privacy and ocean views from its floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors that open to another covered balcony. This master bedroom has its own private wood deck, complete with a second private outdoor shower that’s surrounded by lush tropical plantings. This is a beautiful spot for stargazing at night or enjoying the views and sounds of the ocean, birds and howler monkeys throughout the day. Both of the ensuite bathrooms feature high, wood-paneled ceilings and walk-in showers tiled with travertine and clear onyx. There is generous storage space in both bathrooms, with almond wood shelving and programmable safes for valuables. The house is being sold fully furnished (excluding art work). The furniture throughout the house was custom-designed and built exclusively for La Perla by one of Costa Rica’s most acclaimed furniture makers. All three of the new AC units are top-range inverter models, which are more energy efficient. There is LED lighting throughout the house. La Perla de Santa Teresa is a beautifully appointed house, owned by its original owner, an Amazon executive. The house can be rented out as a whole, or as two separate units - a one bedroom, one bathroom house and a separate, stand-alone studio. The property benefits from all the amenities of the Maramar gated community - including 24-hour security, on-site professional property management services, lush gardens, immaculate infrastructure (roads, water, internet, electricity) and a gorgeous communal pool area. You cannot beat the location!
