Stayed just under a week in the relatively quiet period of early June. It's a little distance from the main Santa Teresa buzz which was just perfect for me as it's much quieter and yet the same distance to the beach - 100 metres. Mateus, resident host, is super friendly and resourceful with great knowledge of the area and always... More

This place is close to an amazing beach and close to a great local soda. The accommodations have nice hammocks and pretty good WiFi in the balcony areas. We were let into our rooms early and allowed to store our bags while we were out on a day trip. This was a very nice thing to do and above and... More

Everything about this place was as presented. 100 yards from a great beach that has waves for beginners to advanced surfers. You can rent a surf board from right across the street. Great rooms that are super clean. There are 4 rooms on the property, all are excellent. The staff is helpful and friendly. And the little town is awesome.... More

I stayed here for a week in september 2014. I had an upstairs apartment in the 2nd building, farthest from the street. The apartment is set up as an efficiency, one room with a kitchen. The only separate room is a bathroom. The kitchen was well supplied, the only thing I found missing was a toaster, or toaster oven, and... More

REALLY AMAZING place, just in front of the main surf spot in Santa Teresa. The rooms are super comfortable, clean, very well equipped (hot water and air conditioning), and very safe. All rooms have balconies with hamaks and the most beautiful view on the jungle. The staff is really nice, welcoming and always willing to help. Rumbo surf is also... More

Great place to stay, the location is beautiful just by the beach. The staff was really helpful and friendly. Ask for the surfing lessons... I was a bit sceptical about my chances of standing on a board at the beginning... and by the end of the week I couldn't wait to get back to the sea and ride another wave.... More
