Our signature chef’s kitchen is a sight to behold: with a professional quality stove, giant stainless steel refrigerator, microwaves, blenders, high-quality cooking utensils, pans, woks, herbs, spices and more, this dream kitchen really sets Casa Zen apart from other guest houses. Check out our Thai-inspired cookbooks for ideas or just pick up some groceries at the supermarket across the street. We also have a smaller, communal kitchen open 24 hours for late night munchies. We always keep our kitchens sparkling clean for guests to enjoy.

Common Areas

Hang out with friends, enjoy a good book, or simply kick back and relax in one of our many common areas


The downstairs rancho is a favorite meeting place for Casa Zen guests. Lined with colorful pillows and featuring a beautiful tiled floor design, it’s a great spot to share a dinner, play a board game, make plans for the evening, or enjoy the access to our free wifi.

Hammocks downstairs

Take your pick from more than a half dozen hammocks upstairs, relax and enjoy the treetop views. Or get comfy in one of our garden view hammocks downstairs. There’s no better way to perfect the art of doing nothing…

Bar area

We serve breakfast each morning at our bar, where you can also find travel guidebooks, tour information, and friendly advice from your Casa Zen receptionist!

Surfboard and bicycle rentals

We have a variety of beginner and intermediate surfboards available for rent, for $8 per day. For advice on where to find the waves or how to book a surf lesson, just ask at reception.

One of the best ways to explore Santa Teresa and Mal Pais is to rent one of our comfy beach cruiser bicycles for $8 per day. Both visitors and locals frequently travel up and down our main dirt road on bicycles. Take a trip down to the Mal Pais fishmarket, visit new beaches or check out a restaurant off the beaten path… you’ll be going in style!


We offer free wifi throughout Casa Zen. Also the most amazing beach just few steps walking.
