  • Surf Vista Villas is truly a beatutiful Place... We had a upstairs villa with a stunning view over the ocean. Andy and Crystal were very friendly and helpful. The Dogs were very nice with our children.

  • Beautiful beautiful views, very friendly hosts that gave us a lot of great information and made everything very easy. They set up our quad rental (much needed for that big hill, definitely recommend it for getting around town and the beaches) and keep the property very clean. Would absolutely recommend staying here if you are in Santa Teresa.

  • It was a wonderful experience! I am definitely going to come back. Andrew and his staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and spacious. The views were breathtaking. The beach and town were really close, but I would recommend to ensure you have transportation up and down the hill. I would also recommend Habanero's restaurant, on the beach and fantastic food!

  • The Surf Vista is an absolutely amazing stay. Andrew, the owner, and all of his staff members were very helpful and super nice. We stayed in the unit that had the kitchen outside and LOVED it. It was so nice to cook and eat while enjoying the ocean breeze and view. The geckos were a wonderful source of entertainment once the sun went down. They would hang out by the lights hunting moths and smal bugs. The sound of the Holler monkeys is what I miss the most. Sometimes the monkeys would hang out on the treetops right next to the deck. Eveny morning an elegant little blue bird would come by and sit near us while we ate breakfast. At first we thought we could walk up and down the hill during our stay, but the hill is steep, so we ended up renting a few quads. This worked out great, they are so much fun to ride! It also made it easier to get groceries and water. The location of the Surf Villa is ideal. It is high up away from the noise of town and has the best view. At the same time it is not so far from anything. I would highly recommend this wonderful Villa and when we return to Costa Rica (which I surely hope we do!) we will try to stay here again. Many thanks!

  • The villa was amazing! Beautiful view, comfortable space, kitchen had everything we needed. The property manager Crystal was great, she helped get our rental car picked up, gave us restaurant recommendations, hung out with us sometimes, and generally gave good advice about the town. The whole experience was great!

    Like others, I would recommend renting an ATV. It is a lot of fun and the best way to get around the town.

  • Wow! The pictures of the view do not do it justice. I extended my stay from 1 week to 2 weeks. The sunsets overlooking the Pacific are unreal, serene, and soothing to my soul. San Diego, Malibu, or Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica don't hold a candle to this view.

    It is very quiet and serene. Off the main road and away from the hustle of Santa Teresa.

    Locals are super friendly. This town is obviously a surfing mecca.

    Andrew is quick to communicate and accommodate. Crystal and Juan were also very helpful. My room was cleaned every other day. I had access to a nice washer and dryer. Internet works great, the fastest during my month traveling here. Showers were always hot. The beds were very comfortable.

    Here is the real skinny about the hill to the villas; I had no problem getting up and down with a Toyota Yaris (2 wheel drive) dry and during heavy rain (I stayed here during the rainy season - Aug & Sept). Juan fills in potholes after rain. 90% this hill is paved. I also ran every other day. The hill is steep in a couple spots but not a big deal.

    It is a short 3 - 5 min drive to all restaurants, grocery, and other attractions in Santa Teresa. Super La Hacienda (grocery) is a block away at the bottom of the hill. The beach is 100 yards from the bottom of the hill.

    Love The Bakery for breakfast. Zula Restaurant was a staple for me. Burger Rancho, Casa del Mar, Chicken Joes are all great as well.

    A local named Jack (phone number hidden)) will deliver just about anything from local restaurants to grocery. Al Capone Delivery on (website hidden).

  • We had an amazing time in Santa Teresa! The room was great, the morning view absolutely spectacular and so quiet at night all you can hear is the ocean and the wildlife around us. Juan took great care of us and helped us out with every need. Absolutely loved it! Best vacation ever so far in my book and I traveled a lot around the world so far! We will be back!!! La pura vida !!!

  • Great place to stay. We really enjoyed it, close to everything. Excellent view

  • My girlfriend and I had an awesome week at Andy's place. It really is as great as the pictures make it look.

    Andy was very helpful and super communicative. We got simple to follow instructions on how to get there from Liberia, and also how to get to San Jose when we left. Andy wasn't there while we stayed, but Juan was and he was super helpful and friendly and a nice guy.

    We actually found out during our stay that we had to leave a day early and Andy was great about it, giving us a refund for the extra night even though he wouldn't be able to rent it to someone else at such short notice. Thanks Andy, you are a legend!

    You should stay here if you come to Santa Teresa, it's a great place. If you stay, a 4x4 is a great idea as the access road is majorly steep (hence the great views). Rooms are big and have a couple of beds so could fit a bunch of people, but was very comfy for the two of us.

    We were upstairs, and the 'common' area of the deck was so pretty and great place to relax after a day of surfing. Hammocks and the house dog were also awesome. We grilled fish on the bbq a few nights which was perfect.

    Definitely recommend this place and would stay here again! You won't regret it.

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 .
