We did not want to leave! Full equiped villas. Spectacular view. Nice place to rest between two surf sessions. Andy and Cota are very nice hosts. Fresh air on top of a hill. I will be back! Nothing to say against it. Perfect stay!

Surf Vista Villas was awesome. It's nice and quiet up on the hill and away from all the action (and dust) down in the town. You can hear and see plenty of wildlife (monkeys' birds, etc) right around the villas. The room and entire property was very clean and comfortabIe. It was a beautiful place to stay! We were glad...

I stayed here with my boyfriend and we were blown away. It made our trip so much better than we could have imagined. The most breathtaking view and very friendly, helpful staff members. We would highly recommend this place to anyone traveling to Santa Teresa.

Surf vista villas looked beautiful in photos and in person it did not disappoint. We arrived as the sun was setting over the ocean. Rooms are large and breezy. Do-it-yourself food prep was fairly easy and inviting in the open air and spacious kitchen areas. Sitting atop a hill in the Costa Rican jungle and 5-10 min from the best... More

Our visit to Santa Teresa was an incredible experience. We enjoyed the magnificent view of the ocean and trees from the clean and inviting pool deck just outside our door! We hired a private driver with a large van (7 family members, 5 stayed at Surf Vista Villas) to bring us to Santa Teresa from San Jose--I would recommend it--seamless... More

This was our second trip to Santa Teresa and stayed with Andy both times. With the new pool we will be back again. Really enjoy the two upstairs villas and sitting on the deck watching surf, birds and monkeys. They have boards for rent if you need one. Nice area to cook meals. You do need some sort of transportation... More

Honestly speaking, I can't think of one flaw when it comes to Santa Teresa Surf Vista Villas. Well, that's not true, the location is up a pretty steep hill and somewhat buried in the jungle, and the sign at the bottom of the hill is difficult to spot, but that's it. My fiance and I stayed here for two nights... More
