The space

This is a lovely 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 one bedroom (equipped with A/C) 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.
The apartment has a porch with a hammock.

The apartment occupies the first floor 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 about it. :)

Griss Lodge is a family-friendly hotel. Most of our guests are surfers. We like to try and keep a 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 once they are done using it.

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.

Casa Griss was such a charming place to stay. We stayed in the one bedroom apartment. It was quiet and so peaceful. The apartment was very comfortable and quite tastefully decorated. The little patio and hammock were perfect for relaxing while our daughter napped in the afternoons. The staff was incredibly kind, warm, friendly, helpful, informative and just all-around wonderful. The price is very reasonable for what you get. The pool area was such a hit for my daughter in the afternoons. And we loved hearing the howler monkeys in the mornings and going to look for which trees they were climbing in. It's a very close walk to the beach--just across the street. We enjoyed checking out some of the local restaurants. I would highly recommend Pronto--the little Italian take-away restaurant just a two minute walk away from the hotel. The food was really amazing! I'd highly recommend staying at Casa Griss!

Our stay at Griss Lodge was amazing. Francesca and the rest of her team are so accommodating and helpful, and the place is truly a gem within Santa Teresa. Just across the street is a pathway to our favorite part of Playa Santa Teresa (less than a 3 min walk). We stayed in one of the wooden houses, as the smaller apartments were unavailable. But we are so, so happy we had the chance to stay in this space. The living area opens up with sliding doors to a balcony overlooking beautiful trees and greenery, and the bedrooms have refreshing AC that came in handy on hot nights. You can hear little geckos and birds from your window, and howler monkeys wake you up in the AM. You won't regret staying here!!

Griss house is a gem amongst gems. Thank you all so much! It was such a lovely experience! Two minute walk to one of the most gorgeous beaches in the Costa Rica. We highly anticipate visiting again soon and staying for an extended amount of time! Thanks so much for everything. Only thing I have to say is that the second floor houses and apartments are a bit more private. Thank you to ani and lolli and the rest of the staff at griss! It's a very special place that we look very forward to visiting again soon.

WOW. Griss was incredible! We loved staying here and the hosts were so helpful and accomodating...super sweet people. The apartment was spacious, clean, and well designed. The location was great...a short walk to the beach, lots of good restaurants and a grocery store nearby. Loved having a kitchen. Spent most of our time on the patio. A great space and great people. Thanks Griss staff!

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.
