This is a lovely two-storey apartment in rustic-chic style. It is located very close (2-minute walk) to the best surf spot in the beautiful and lush beach of Santa Teresa.
The apartment has two bedrooms (each with a double bed), plus two twin size sofa-beds in the living room.
It also has a small kitchen integrated to the living room area, and a bathroom.
Both bedrooms are equipped with A/C.
The apartment occupies the second and third floors of one of the three houses that make up Griss Lodge.
The hotel has a lovely garden, swimming pool and jacuzzi, as well as a barbecue area.
This area has hammocks placed in shaded spots, perfect for relaxation.
We also offer you room cleaning service, linens and towels.
Santa Teresa is a perfect beach for surfers and people who love nature. We have our own surf school and can offer you surf lessons and rental boards.
Once here, we will be more than happy to help you organize many other activities in the area.
We can arrange special packages for long stay. Feel free to ask us. :)
Griss Lodge is a family-friendly hotel. Most of our guests are surfers, and we like to keep a very relaxed atmosphere here.
We ask our guests not to make a lot of noise early in the morning or late at night.
The swimming pool is open between 8 am and 10 pm.
If you wish to use the barbecue area, all you have to do is ask us, so we can reserve a slot for you. We ask our guests to pretty please clean the barbecue area after themselves.
Please, no smoking in the house.
Also, we ask our guests to turn off AC, light and fans whenever they leave the house, and to turn on the AC only after closing all doors and windows.
We have 3 dogs and 1 cat. If you have a small pet that you wish to bring along, it is also welcome here.
We enjoyed a wonderful week at Griss Lodge! Beautiful house in the trees, minutes away from the best surf, great grounds and pool, and very family friendly (we stayed with a 7 month old). Definitely recommend!
We had a very nice time in Santa Teresa! The House was the perfect place for a surf-vacation! Only two minutes to walk to the beach. The waves are good for beginners AND really good surfers.
The house is a good place for 4 People. There is enough space and the pool-area is great! We enjoyed our time at GRISS!!!
One of the best placed I've stayed at! Close to surf, great hangout by the pool. The cabinas are amazing and the staff super helpful and friendly.
I loved the way this place looks. they did a great job making it look rustic, yet real classy and chick. I had a bit of a problem when i was there, and the staff is genuinely so caring and loving. Its run like a true business. Next time I go to Santa Teresa, i will for sure stay at the Griss. I think it was the cutest place there anyway:) Thank you Griss Staff:)
Nice people but a bit disappointed by the facility. The house was noisy, grungy, and poorly equipped (no hot water, had to request towels, tiny TV... broken, etc.). Beds were doubles (not queens) - could sleep six if you are small people and use the very uncomfortable seating in the living area. A nicely designed house but in need of cleaning up. Over-promised and under-delivered - especially at the price of $120/night.
Was a great location that had a path right to a beautiful beach & we thoroughly enjoyed coming home to a little kitchen at the end of our days in Santa Teresa. It was rough one night as our unit was above another family's unit and they had a child that was not happy for a LONG time. Not much you can do about that though. There was also definitely a mouse hanging out inside that left droppings in our suitcase/on our clothes (pretty gross). The upstairs where the bedrooms were was very clean though with air conditioning to keep comfy at night. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and our time in Santa Teresa. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful!
We did not realize that it was a long drive and a ferry boat ride and another 90 minute drive after the ferry. We did not account for the slow driving in Costa Rica and we not able to stay here. The hosts were great about offering us to come another day. It was completely our fault we could not get to this home. Costa Rica driving is much slower than what. Are used to in the states so it takes much longer than we think.

We are four Italian friends (Selma, Gabriele, Simona and Riki) who moved to Santa Teresa 8 years ago. We built Griss to be the kind of place where we would ourselves love to stay.
The hotel has 6 apartments and 2 bedrooms. All apartments are equipped with small kitchens. The two bedrooms share a kitchen as well.
We are very proud of our garden, with hammocks in shaded spots, a swimming pool and a brand new outdoor jacuzzi. We also have a barbecue area for our guests.
Many of our guests come here for the amazing surf. Waves in Santa Teresa are consistent all year round. We are all surfers, and that is part of the appeal of this place for us.
If you are not a surfer, you can still have an amazing time here. The place is very lush and clean, with lots of wildlife around us.
Santa Teresa has a small town feeling, but still has many lovely restaurants and shops. There are many other fun activities to be done around here, such as horseback riding, yoga, canopies, trips to nature reserves, fishing, or simply walking on our stunning beach. Sunsets here can be incredibly beautiful and are an attraction in themselves.
Do drop us a few lines if you have any questions.
