We would recommend the Surf Vista Villas to anyone! This place was so beautiful. It was private, clean, kept up well, and we LOVED hanging out on the balcony watching the ocean and the sunsets every day. Andy was very helpful any time we needed anything, and set up two different tours for us so we didn't even have to think about it. Santa Teresa is a really cute town with tons of great restaurants to try and the beach was fantastic. We were a little out of shape for walking up the hill to the villas, so we used our car most times, but if you're in shape the hill probably isn't too bad.
Ein netter Ort in den Hügeln fern ab vom Staub der Hauptstraße im Wald. Alles in allem eine unkomplizierte Unterkunft. Andrew ist verfügbar für Fragen und gibt Tipps.
Ein absolutes Highlight sind der Blick aufs Meer, die Sonnenuntergänge, die Vegetation und Tierbeobachtungen.
Staying with Andy at the Surf Vista Villas was the perfect way to experience the Costa Rican west coast for the first time. Besides the stunning views and peaceful jungle surroundings at the villa, Andy was so helpful and responsive when I had questions about way finding, booking tours, and what to see/do in Santa Teresa town. He's really well equipped with knowledge/gear, you name it. Super friendly, and so easy going.
The hill going up to the villa is not too bad once you get used to it (I walked it 2-3 times per day without issue) and the payoff for getting up that far is awesome!
The surf vista villas was incredible. The views won't be beat anywhere! Andy was super accommodating and the room was very clean and well stalked with everything needed to cook and have a comfortable stay. Lounging on the porch hammocks with the cat was the perfect way to start and end every day in Santa Teresa. The proximity to town was a short walk but being up the hill away from it all was even better. Andy's food suggestion for Habanero's was well played as well. Great spot for our first night in town! You won't regret a second of your time spent at Surf Vista Villas.
The Sunset Reef Suite at the Surf Vista Villas was great and had everything we needed for a fun trip. The expansive ocean view, gorgeous sunsets, wifi, cold AC and hot showers made staying here an awesome experience.
The location is great, as long as you have some wheels. It's close to the town and beach, but just far enough up the hill to be safe and quiet - and have an incredible view.
We were easily able to find the host, Andy, with any questions we had about the area or to ask for directions. His advice helped us a lot getting around the area.
If I ever find myself in Santa Theresa again, I will definitely stay here.
One of the best vacation spots I have stayed!
Besides the breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean from our apartment, the beautiful beaches and glorious sunsets... Our host Andy was very gracious and exteremly accommodating.. He helped us with transportation (a quad) which is necessary to get to and from the villas and around town and was always available to answer any questions we had.
SVV is a hidden treasure and I will definitely stay here again if ever back this way...
Hats off to your hard work Andy!!
Muchas Gracias y Pura Vida!!
Fantastic place, fantastic veiw. The drive down can be rough. Try to get a 4WD car and avoid the norh of the penninsula. Andy was super nice and accomadating. If we were in this area again would definitly stay here.

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 .
