“Relaxation at it's fullest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

Andy and Crystal were great to deal with from the start. Before we even got there, my boyfriend and I worked with Crystal to set up tours for our time in Costa Rica. She was nothing short of amazing in finding us the best guides, the best places to eat, and making us feel at ease even before we stepped foot into the Villas.

The Villas themselves are located 300 meters up in the hills, overlooking the jungle and ocean. When I saw up, I mean up. The hill is a steep walk, but honestly I didn't mind - it kept the vacation pounds in check! If you want a break, I'd suggest renting a quad from the Villas themselves or they can arrange to have one delivered for you. Again, Crystal made this so easy.

The room was clean, spacious, and fit the environment perfectly. Every morning and night was started and ended on the porch, listening to the howler monkeys, birds, and ocean. We will be back.

Room Tip: The second floor rooms definitely have a better view, but all rooms have a great view of the ocean.

It's that time of year again and I wish I was going back to Surf Vista Villas. Andy's place is the perfect spot to start, enjoy, or end your day in. With everything you need up top on this hillside property , enjoy incredible views, great places to relax, even a waterfall shower to cool off after a day on the beach. Any questions we had were answered by Andy, and any activities we had planned to do he took care of . I cannot wait to join the crew up at Surf Vista Villas again. Thanks again Andy

This is a true paradise on earth! Loved our upstairs villa with surrounding balcony.....the best view ever. What an experience being high up in the jungle, listening to the "howlers" and watching amazing sunsets over the ocean. The "track" to the top only added character to this perfect escape! Cristal and Adam took care of our every need, they were awesome. We ended our stay with massages on our balcony during sunset! Just Perfect!

We didn't book our nights in Santa Teresa before our venue. What a mistake ! We tried all (nice) hotels in Santa Teresa one after the other and all were full for the coming days. We were ready to give up and try an hostel after on last try, at the end of the "city", at the end of a long and crappy track. But it worth the effort. We were at Surf Vistas Villas, and by chance they had a room available for the night.
The best night and stay of our trip in Costa Rica. Amazing view, amazing room.
Unfortunatly they had only one night availabe (we spent the onther at the Horizon which was also great), but we will defenetly come back for at least a week. This place is just the best for a peaceful vacation rest.

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 their guests and the property. I'd easily recommend SVV to anyone who's looking for a genuine Costa Rica casual vacation. After all luxury is in the eye of the beholder, and SVV offers Costa Rican luxury.

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 only draw back is the steep and rutted road up to the place. It's not for sissy's. Get yourself an SUV or ATV. It will come in handy for many of the roads around here. They're generally pretty bad. Theguy who owns and runs the place, Andy, and his staff, Crystal and Juan are all great.

Room Tip: I would choose the Sunset Reef Suite because it's off the beaten track. My room is wonderful but...

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 and down the hill. Andrew was great, and Juan was a terrific surf instructor.
