The Great -- the villa was gorgeous. We stayed in the upstairs villa for only a night and were blown away by the view. We loved Teresa (the house cat), the perfectly located hammock and deck bar chairs, and all of the cooking instruments we could ever want.
The Bad -- the bugs. We made the mistake of leaving the glass sliding doors open (screen doors closed) while we enjoyed the sunset outside and came back to a major fly infestation inside the villa. What started as only a couple turned into hundreds -- flying around, coating the beds, getting in our hair. It was horrible.
I would still recommend staying here, but be VERY diligent about keeping the sliding glass doors closed as nighttime approaches. Many of the screen doors have holes, so don't do the trick.
This place must gave one of the best views in whole Costa Rica. We highly recommend the Vista Villas, it is well located and the house it is pretty big with loads of beds.
My wife and I stayed with Andy just recently. Our villa absolutely lived up to the positive reviews on the site. The space was welcoming and spacious. The kitchen was well-stocked, the beds were comfortable and the villa was very clean. Our favorite part was definitely the patio - the view was breathtaking.
Andy was incredibly attentive and responsive to our thousands of questions. We hope we weren't too annoying, but Andy made us feel at home.
It's true that the hill up to the villa can be a bit of a hike, but while we were there, Andy helped us get a ATV. I would absolutely recommend this, it was really fun zipping around Mal Pais on one!
We were staying at the Villa for 4 days. Located at the top of a hill. Beautiful view, surrounded by nature. Better have a car to access the property since there is a steep path. Other than that great stay. Andrew is a great host. Surf boards to rent if needed. I definitely recommend this property.
Great experience. Amazing views! A few bugs, but definitely worth it. The space is cool, a really nice studio with three beds and a good size kitchen.
Andy was a wonderful host. He arranged an ATV for us, soon after we arrived. I definitely recommend an ATV over motorcycle or car. The roads are steep and bumpy! We loved the views from our top floor villa, which was very spacious and clean. We also enjoyed meeting the resident dogs and kitty. Made the place feel like home :). Highly recommend the Surf Vista Villas and we would come back and stay anytime. Santa Teresa is a great town full of beautiful beaches and great restaurants/shops. Andy also arranged a taxi and the ATV pickup for us before we left.
Andy hat uns freundlich empfangen, und da wir etwas zu früh waren, konnten wir unsere Koffer in der Garage lassen. Die Unterkunft war ein Traum. Wir hatten die "Roca Mar" Villa, eine der oberen, welche einfach unbeschreiblich schön war. Hohe Decken, alles sehr sauber, eine Küche zur Mitbenützung und eine vielfältige Auswahl an Hängematten und Schaukelstühlen, die zum verweilen einluden. Und natürlich war die Aussicht einmalig, wir haben besonders die Sonnenuntergänge von dort aus sehr genossen. Die Villas befinden sich etwas abgelegener in Santa Teresa am Ende eines sehr steilen Hügels, daher ist ein Auto sehr empfehlenswert. Andy war gut erreichbar und sehr hilfsbereit, wir konnten auch Surfboards bei ihm mieten für einen sehr guten Preis. Brüllaffen dienen morgens als Wecker.

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 .
