If you're coming to Santa Teresa to surf, you've found the right place! Pacifica Surf Studios are on the beach side of the road, nestled in the trees away from the road, and just a few dozen steps to the sand on the south end of Playa Santa Teresa. The lineups at the south end of the beach are mellower and less crowded, but if you want to strut your stuff at La Lora, it's just a few minutes' walk up the beach. ATV rentals are available onsite if you'd like to hit spots further afield. I rented one on a day when ST was closing out, and scored some perfect lefts at Los Cedros, down near Montezuma.
The rest my 9-day visit, I spent in a contented haze, surfing every day at Santa Teresa, and in between sessions, relaxing in my hammock or by the clean and inviting pool (there's also an outdoor shower by the pool, for rinsing off the salt and sand). I loved having the kitchenette and a supermarket nearby, so I didn't have to eat out for every meal, but there were a number of restaurants within easy walking distance whenever I felt like dining out. There are also several surf shops nearby for all of your equipment and apparel needs.
The property itself is top-notch. I had an upstairs studio that was clean and well-maintained, with high ceilings, A/C, a ceiling fan, and a big, comfy bed. The kitchenette was equipped with a hot plate, coffee maker, toaster oven, mini-fridge and a sink, as well as some dishes, utensils, pots and pans. My semi-private deck (separated by bamboo shades from my neighbors) had a hammock, and a nice table and chairs where I ate breakfast and lunch most days. The landscaping was attractive and well-kept. My room was cleaned every day, including fresh towels and sheets.
I highly recommend Pacifica Surf Studios for serious surfers who want a place with some style and comfort. Give my regards to Coco!
