We came to Surfsong for our honeymoon and we really liked our stay! It is perfectly located just outside of the chaos of Santa Teresa so it's very calm (howler monkeys in the backyard). But you are also very close to everything; 2 min walk from the beach, 5 min bike ride from restaurants and market. It's also close to Playa Hermosa which is another nice beach and, as we learned, the spot for beginner surfers. So we enjoyed the beach, the surfing, hiking in Capo Blanco's natural reserve, ziplining in Montezuma. We had rented a car so we drove around in the region which was a lot of fun!
Ugo was a great host, he communicated with us regularly and gave us some tips and recommendations. We even went to visit his farm/ranch which was cool.
In all, a very good experience!
Ugo was an incredible host. He went above and beyond the call and duty to coordinate all the various things we needed such as taxi pick up, quad rental, etc. He called and spoke with us in person on the drive from Tambor to Santa Teresa to give us all the details about his home and the surrounding area, fun things to do, good restaurants to check out, etc. That was so helpful! He was more than just an Airbnb host, he was practically a travel guide. And Surfsong Retreat was a BEAUTIFUL place, with gorgeous ocean views and perfect for the two of us. We have already recommended Surfsong to many of our friends here and will definitely stay in it again when we come back to Santa Teresa.
Well kept place, very comfortable bed and beautiful views. Slight drive from the main part of town, but it meant hearing animals and the ocean every morning.
Ugo's place was beautiful! Truly a private hilltop bungalow with killer views of the ocean. Ugo gave detailed and easy to follow directions to his place and even recommended a few restaurants - which were amazing! The driveway is pretty steep, so 4 wheel drive was helpful, but not required when we were there in the dry season. The place is surrounded by great wildlife (birds, monkeys, iguanas) and the neighbor's dog is extremely friendly - he came over every morning for a little love. Overall, wonderful experience and great value!
We had a lovely stay at Ugo's place! The location with the gorgeous view is very relaxing and the possibility to walk to the beach simply perfect. The one bedroom and outdoor kitchen is all you need and you can enjoy the ocean view from both indoor and outdoor shower. Pura Vida!
The reservation was canceled 22 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
I really would like to live at Ugo's place - it's my perfect home. It's ideal for privacy in a gorgeous setting. The bedroom is super comfortable, the bed is gigantic. Nearly two full walls of windows give an incredible view of the water and landscape when you wake up. The kitchen is also equipped with everything even a toaster and blender along with the full stove and kitchen. We cooked a lot of our meals there to enjoy the privacy and the view. I found literally every part of his set up to be perfect.
I loved the beach in front of his place. Its fairly private, we rarely saw other people, with coves with tiny fish and crabs.
Ugo is really cool, relaxed and helpful. We will definitely come back as soon as we can. Thank you!!
Ugo was an awesome host!! He took care of everything for my friend and I. He picked us up at the airport, drove us to his studio, made sure we knew where everything was, and even had his girlfriend drop off a quad for us to use during our stay! Ugo stayed in contact with us to ensure we were comfortable and had everything we needed. His place is really nice. It had a beautiful view of the ocean, all the amenities we needed, and it was in a perfect location.. close to everything!! I highly recommend staying here!
Ugo's studio is nothing but amazing! We loved loved loved every minute of it!
The studio is mostly outside so you can hear and see the ocean all the time - an if you walk down a hill for like 5 min. you all get to it.
We took surf lessons at Blue Surf Sanctuary that is really close and has excellent instructors. The perfect combo for a private surf camp. Beside that, the luxury resort Flor blanca is only 150m away from the studio and they have a world class yoga teacher there - the best I EVER tried - in a Yoga studio overlooking the sea. And its only 12 dollars a lesson. Perfection!
We cooked breakfast at the studio and the kitchen is well equipped. We dident have a car to go shopping, but a taxi is cheap and its easy to get a ride. We rented an ATV a day, an that is a very fun an very ideal way to get around.
We can HIGHLY recommend Ugo's studio! Since we left we only talked about how we can get back:)
Thank you for an amazing stay Ugo!
