Location | Santa Teresa, CR
Exquisitely positioned in the exclusive northern beach cove of Santa Teresa, Costa Rica, is the Villa MAISON MARAZUL. This small area is as quiet as it is private, an oceanfront “jewel box” location in the heart of nature. We sit along a small stretch of beach, sited between luxury boutique hotels such as Florblanca and Latitudes 10, with on-site bars and restaurants, all conveniently close by. Our adjacent access to neighboring amenities requires only a barefoot stroll down the beach to enjoy Yoga, Pilates, spa services, cocktails, sushi or dinner. This affords our guests a unique opportunity to experience the Pura Vida lifestyle as locals do, in an exclusive oceanfront locale away from the crowds, but still in range of the lively central town area.
Maison Marazul is located right on the oceanfront, our backyard is the Pacific Ocean. The white sand beach directly in front of the property is protected by reef. Low tide presents the opportunity to explore the tide pools or take an ocean dip. For surfers, the world famous Suck Rock point break is a short stroll up the beach, and beyond lies an endless stretch of surf breaks and swimmers beaches. Beyond the pinion to the north are abundant tide pools and the lovely Playa Hermosa, a popular swim and surf beach.
Still, with so many options in proximity, a simple walk on the beach is elevated when returning to the privacy that makes MAISON MARAZUL so exceptional. As the sun sets before you each evening on the oceanfront, there is no better place to be. Pura Vida, beyond compare.

A Tale of Two Seasons
The Dry | High Season
Approximately mid-November through the end of June. In the dry or high season, the town is busy, especially during the holidays. The restaurants are buzzing and many may be difficult to get into without a reservation. More people are on the beach and in the water, and generally it is the influx of tourism that is notable in the bump in the population. This is the time for prime beach weather, and more certainty of sunny, dry conditions.
If you are a first time visitor to Santa Teresa, or coming from a cold or rainy climate, the dry season offers more assurance of prime beach weather, crystal clear ocean water, and less rain. This allows for more opportunities to get out and explore and partake in activities like hiking, horseback riding, fishing or zip lining. Rates are higher, especially around the peak holiday periods.
TIME FOR SUN, SURF, TIME TO WORK AND
ENJOY THE BEACH AT THE SAME TIME.
The Green Season | Rainy Season
Approximately July through November. Also known as the low or rainy season, can be more favored by the locals, or repeat visitors, mainly because the town quiets down. There are still tourists and visitors, but a far less frenetic pace. It is a more relaxing and languid time. Being a bridge or low season period, lower rates are a draw, especially for repeat visitors who already know the lay of the land, but there is more risk of rain, mosquitos and muddy roads.
Yoga enthusiasts tend to come for long stays, such as a retreat with a group or an individual wellness visit. There is a bit more relaxed and casual feel all around. With fewer visitors in town, some stores and restaurants close toward the end of the green season, and surfers will find less competition for waves. Early in the green season, rains come in the morning or evening, but the sun will usually warm throughout the day. Heaviest rains usually come in the months of September through October.
TIME TO RELAX, TAKE IT EASY, LIVE THE
PURA VIDA AND, AS ALWAYS, SURF MORE.
Yoga, Wellness and Surf travel is a draw for visitors all year round. The swell season, between May through December has more promise of world-class waves for experienced surfers, however, surf is consistent between both seasons.
