We definately cannot recommend Griss Lodge and found it extremely poor value. The Garden house we stayed in looked nice at first sight, but nothing worked: the aircon, the shower, the kitchen, the lock on the door - nothing worked, and in the end we gave up trying to find the so called hosts. Besides, the restaurant and pool area... More

We lived in one of the wooden houses for a week. It was by far the coolest "room" we've ever had. It was clean, safe and the owners are fantastic. They helped us booking tours and activities and are also extremely flexible and service minded. If you're going to Santa Teresa should you stay at Griss!

Ricki and Samona are amazing hosts for an amazing property! Just a few steps off the bus stop and a short skip to the beach (a path just across the street) you can't go wrong here. Our apartment is phenomenal with an equipped kitchen, hot water, and beautiful patio. The pool is a perfect way to end a hot day... More

Spent 3 nights in February. 2014 We stayed in the 2 story house, the left side. Very comfy, quiet, the pool is great, We just felt totally relaxed, loved the path to the beach, would stay again, only longer. Rented quads to explore, a great way to easily get around to figure out the place you like best. Griss Lodge... More

What a beautiful and accommodating place! We spent a week in Santa Teresa celebrating our anniversary and everything was perfect. We eat great food (one time Ricky arrange fresh fish delivery for us so we could BBQ ourselves), we chill in the pool ( Ricky gave us some helpful tips on how to teach our 2yo how to swim), we...

We spent 6 nights at the Griss and we felt like we were staying in paradise! We opted for the two floor garden house. It's basically floors 2 & 3 of one of the houses. The first floor was very spacious with a nice sitting area, dinner area and kitchenette. The upstairs had 2 bedrooms. We were able to put... More

I absolutely adore Griss Lodge and Villas! My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights and received far more than we paid for! I highly suggest using Griss Lodge as your escape while on vacation. The grounds are beautiful and well cared for, the rooms are EXACTLY as advertised and very nicely decorated, and the staff is so amazing--they... More

Ricky and his family are amazing they are so friendly and help you with everything. Very close to the beach and in town. They offer surf lessons and board rentals. Very clean and it was the best place ive ever stayed at.

I stayed here with 7 of my friends - all in one house, 4 upstairs and 4 down. Ricky and his family were so unbelievably welcoming. We actually started calling RIcky 'The Fixer' because no matter what we needed, he found a way to help up. If we are fortunate enough to visit Santa Teresa again we will absolutely be... More

This is a wonderful place , very clean, secure and unique. I walked across the street and surfed everyday, then walked to get a nice meal. Everyone here was very nice, very helpful and quiet. I will be returning in the future.
