If you’re a larger group, you’ll be happy to know that you can rent this villa in conjunction with its sister properties, Casa Capitan and Casa Dewa so you and a big group of friends can enjoy a vacation together.

Casa Java is right by Santa Teresa’s North Playa, a white-sand beach where you can swim, surf and bathe in the sun. Downtown is only a 10-minute drive away, so you have easy access to local shops and restaurants.
