Surf Vista Villas (Mar Azul Suite) was incredible! We drove up a winding road off the main drag in town and shortly arrived at a modern furnished jungle hotel/lodge with hammocks and spacious rooms and a sweet view of the ocean down below. Beautiful sunsets, comfy beds, strong water pressure, surfboards for rent, great bar/restaurant suggestions, Andy had everything we needed and more. I would recommend this to any friend visiting Santa Teresa. Thanks Andy!
Andy's place was incredible - spacious, comfortable, clean, shower had great water pressure and it had everything we needed. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and Andy was always available for questions and assisted us with everything we needed. We had an amazing stay!
The view from the property was breathtaking - it was hard not to get out of bed each morning to watch the sunrise while monkeys and birds greeted you.
We also rented Andy's ATV for the week to get around town and to head to Montezuma and Playa Hermosa. We highly recommend having a vehicle for the stay as it saves lots of time from getting from one place to another.
We unfortunately went to Costa Rica during rainy season and had a rather small rental which prevented us from getting to the surf villas. Directions in Costa Rica are a bit crazy. If you're planning on traveling to the Villas I would recommend GPS and absolutely have 4x4 vehicle. We will try to make it down there our next trip. The pictures look amazing. Fortunately for us we found some beautiful beaches with paved roads further north.
The views and aesthetics are spectacular here. Definitely get an atv or rental car - it's really fun getting up and down the hill with an atv. My room was on the bottom floor and was just phenomenal. I can't say enough about the host too Andy is the man and will take care of you!
This place is great with a view worth the drive to get there. The suites are nice and clean with a kitchen to cook. Santa Teresa is a surfing town and the roads are pretty bad so you need a 4 wheel drive vehicle. The host is somewhat absent, so if you don't mind that it's all good. The food in this area is better than standard Costa Rican food because of the fresh fish on the coast. Santa Teresa is a good base with lots of areas around there to explore.

Everything about this place is fantastic! To start of the review with, we loved Santa Teresa / Mal Pais the most in Costa Rica from our travels across the entire country. Andrew was very helpful and answered all queries before the booking.
Surf Visa Villas are situated on top of a hill which overlook the Pacific Ocean amid lush green trees. The villas are located on the stretch of Santa Teresa and Mal Pais which are dotted with a lot of amazing restaurants, cafe's and surf shops.
Andy ensured we had a smooth check in. we loved the vibe of the house as soon as we entered the suit. Large, spacious and tastefully done up. Amazing views from the room. Everything was well in place from the kitchen to the air conditioner.
You will be guaranteed the best sun sets in Costa Rica in Santa Teresa and the suits have hammocks and chairs outside where we enjoyed our daily breakfasts and sunsets.
Absolutely loved this place
We had such a great time staying at Andrew's. My boyfriend and I had been backpacking for 5 weeks previous to our arrival and rendezvous with friends arriving from Colorado. Our experience was the icing on the cake. The view is incredible, the apartment -very clean, well designed, and has al the amenities you need to cook, and best of all Andrew was really friendly and his dogs are just the same. I highly recommend staying at Surf Vista Villas, not only will you stay in comfort, you may also make some new friends :) Hope our visit won't be our last. Thank you!

About the Host, Andrew
I've lived in lake tahoe since 1991 and have since grown quite attached to the outdoors . after many years in the snow my desire to be near the ocean grew stronger . after many trips to maui , kauai , and costa rica I found mal pais/santa teresa and never left . it's such a special place . the people , beaches , restaurants , culture and waves are very hard to beat .
