The Space

Enjoy the best views in Santa Teresa .
The Mar Azul Suite is one of four breathtaking ocean view villas all with ocean view decks.

This upstairs unit has panoramic ocean and surf views, a full kitchen w/new appliances, large bathroom w/hot water, 3 queen beds, A/C, wireless internet, safes for your valuables, ipod docks, ceiling fans, and plenty of privacy and space.

We're only a two minute drive or 15 minute walk up a hill from the beach, restaurants and markets, our only neighbor are the birds and monkeys. We're always more than happy to help you arrange your travel plans and any activities such as surf lessons, tortuga island boat trips, sportfishing trips, waterfall & wildlife hikes, jungle canopy tours, yoga classes, horseback riding and more.

Located on our own private hill top with no neighbors, away from the hustle and bustle make for a very relaxing stay. Still close enough to all the great verity of restaurants, surf shops, and always somewhere in town to be social.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • 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!

  • Terrific villa at the top of a hill overlooking beautiful Costa Rican trees in a valley, leading down to the sea. I rented an ATV to get around the small, friendly town. The beach is very close; the villa is nicely separated from the busy main drag, though even that's pretty quiet and peaceful.

    Friendly, helpful, laid-back owners.

  • This place was amazing. Beautiful and private and away from the main road. Juan was a great host and very helpful. Wish we had time to stay longer and explore the awesome little town of Santa Teresa.

  • Had a great time at Surf Vista Villas! Was very relaxing and has an amazing view. I would definitely recommend getting a quad or 4x4 to get up the hill and also to explore the town and surrounding area. Andy and Juan were great hosts and very helpful in letting us know places to go and booking activities for us. Thanks!

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 .
