We really enjoyed staying at Surf Villa Vistas! The rooms were spacious and had everything we needed and the view was magnificent. Would love to return and would definitely stay at SVV again!
Santa Teresa Surf Vista Villas was amazing. It was super welcoming. The pictures of the villa on airbnb do not do the villas justice. Andy is very nice and willing to help you with anything you need. His dogs are very friendly as well as his cat. The house cleaning lady was amazing. She washed and hung my clothing. Juan, the gardener did amazing job up keeping the property. PLEASE RENT ANDY's ATV, it is very much needed and much more comfortable then a car!!! I Definitely recommend this Villa.
Beautiful views, flexible check-in time and a great host. Our only regret is that we didn't spot any monkeys during our stay, but we definitely heard them though.
Surf Vista Villas is a wonderful Costa Rica experience, Diane loved the open feel of our room with amazing views. Andrew has a created a great space in Santa Teresa and was a great host to have.
Andy's set up is pristine. We arrived late at night and easily navigated ourselves to our room with his instructions on the very visible message board.
We were excited to visit Santa Teresa and do some exploring/surfing. The set up was so great that we didn't even leave the house the first day because we felt so relaxed with the view and beds. The architecture, construction and decorating give an unexpected aesthetic appeal.
This will now be our Santa Teresa destination.
Head's up: If you're traveling without a car, it's a significant hike up the hill to get to the location (hence the beautiful ocean views).
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.

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 .
