“Quaint Santa Teresa Retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

A friend of mine and I just recently took a quick girls trip over to Santa Teresa. I had been to the town before and just fell in love. I was unsure of where to stay this trip but I am so lucky to have found the Surf Vista Villas. We didn't know what to expect upon arriving. We weren't sure when the road leading straight up to the villa would end, at first. Once you get to the top, the view and the villa itself is breath taking, with a little feeling of " this is home" as well. A nice little jungle retreat not too far from the beach. Andy was great, very welcoming and hospitable. He rented us his quad for our stay too. I highly recommend staying here on your next trip to Santa Teresa!

Room Tip: The Mar Azul sweet was the best in my opinion. Your on the far side on the first floor. So you have...

My bestfriend and I came to stay here on our vacation :) After a long travel day, the long steep driveway up to our place was sort of a surprise to us and the taxi driver, but after gettting up there and seeing the view and gorgeous rainforest trees and plants all around we were so excited and happy about our choice in the place to stay :) The hammocks outside were so chill and cozy. The room was perfect for us too, it had everything we needed, felt like our home, and set the mood for the awesome adventure and experience that we had there. Andy, the owner, is also a really nice friendly guy that totally welcomes you to his place. This is definitely a place to experience :)

Room Tip: All rooms have incredible views!

Andy's location is fantastic. Up the hill, away from the dust and noise and with absolutely stunning views. We spent a week and woke up each morning to iguanas, birds and howler monkeys. The villa option worked so well. We always had breakfast on the deck/patio and would eat out for lunch and dinner. Being at the north end of Santa Teresa provided the tranquility we were looking for.

I was looking forward to plush accommodations and good waves and got just that. Located above the best surf spot in Santa Teresa, our super clean unit on the second story had a perfect ocean view, comfortable beds, nice bathroom and a kitchen area with a full size fridge. Andy was a great host, sharing with me and my bro all the best places to shop and eat. Great restaurants in the area.
Huge balcony to enjoy jungle and ocean views during cocktail hour after a day of surfing and swimming.

Santa Teresa Surf Villas is a fabulous find. Situated high on a hill overlooking the Pacific, surrounded by lush jungle foilage. You will wake to howler monkeys, parrots & Uracas in the nearby canopy. Andrew is an excellent host; available always...but never in the way. Ridiculously large accomodations, a fabulous outdoor kitchen. The villa is built to take advantage of the breezes. Book early

I have never felt the need to review a property until now.

Just returned from a trip with a total of 6 friends to Santa Teresa CR. Spent 10 days at SVV. Jan - Feb '13.

Overall a GREAT stay at Surf Vista Villas! Rooms are new, clean and have all that is needed for any couple family or group of friends. Andy and his staff were polite and accommodating in regard to all details of our stay. I will be taking the family down next time.

Views are best I have had in CR or any surf trip 20+ years.

Andy is a great host and was able to share information about Santa Teresa and the surrounding areas that made our stay that much more enjoyable. He has taken the time to get to know what, where, and when to recommend activities for any adventure you have on your mind. Reading other reviews I realized I'm as articulate but can simply say:

"Best property in Santa Teresa/Mal Pais!"

Wow! Great location, breathtaking views. Andy is a first rate host. We rented an ATV from him and had one of the best vacations of our lives. Lovely time relaxing on the deck and taking it all in. Central location in Santa Teresa is convenient to everything and up above the bustle and noise of the town. Imagine walking out of your villa in the morning to see toucans in the trees right off the deck. In the evening enjoy the smell of ylang ylang in the cool ocean breeze.

Room Tip: Get a room on the upper deck. The restaurant at the bottom of the drive is excellent.
