Santa Teresa is a very unique place, and Surf Vista Villas fits right in. As stated many times the view was spectacular. The amenities were very functional, and perfect for a casual stay. The staff was extremely helpful and very friendly and perfect for the vibe of the town. It showed without question that Andy and staff care alot about... More

I found this little gem of a place way up above the dusty dirt streets of Santa Teresa. It 's modern, airy, light,and breezy, clean and well cared for. The view is just beautiful. It's the perfect place to watch the sun set while sipping a cocktail as you lounge in a swinging chair or hammock. A rare place. The... More

If you are fortunate enough to be able to come to Santa Teresa, CR and lucky enough to stay at Surf Vista Villas, you will have a wonderful experience. The views are absolutely breathtaking. The room was spacious, and clean. Definitely will come back! The only thing I would repeat from other reviews would be you will want transportation up... More

Surf Vista Villas is a great place to stay in lovely Santa Teresa. The accommodations were perfect for our family vacation. The room was large and comfortable. I really liked the large veranda, with swinging chairs and hammocks. It also has a roll down screen that blocks the excess sun to keep the place cool, yet preserving the superb view.... More

Would we go back again? probably not. Would I recommend it? Maybe, but I'd set expectations a little different than what's represented. This place is a bit of hard one to review. It's hard to separate "the view" and the hilltop location from the actual lodging. If you take "the view" out of many of the reviews, you'll find many... More

My family (4 of us) wanted a place to stay that was both close to the beach and town. We also wanted a place that was quiet and peaceful. We found that (and more!) at The Surf Villa Vista! Our room was spacious with 3 queen size beds, an ample deck with a fully equipped kitchen outside, and a view... More

My 2 daugthers, my husband and myself spent a few days around Christmas at Surf Vista Villas The vue from the terrace is absolutely amazing even for the ones of the downstairs villas. Andy, the owner, has been very helpful as he proposed (for a very moderate rate) a small chalet (with its own vue) for my 16 years old... More

Surf Vista Villas is located at the top of a hill in northern Santa Teresa. The view is incredible & the breeze is very nice. Each room is spacious and sleeps several people. Kitchens and bathrooms have everything you need. The linens, hammocks and beds are all high quality. Great vibe, nice people hanging around. Two thumbs up!

Stayed 3 nights at the Surf Vista Villas with my wife and son. What an awesome place! Great view overlooking the Pacific, wildlife in the trees right next to the villa, and a great way to end our 7-night vacation in Costa Rica. The road up to SVV is a little crazy (but safe), but once you are there the... More
