It was first trip to Santa Teresa, Costa Rica and I am glad I had the chance to stay at the Surf Casitas for my one week surf vacation. I stayed in one of the three charming bungalows. The bungalows are situated in a gated property and every night there was a security guard, which made me feel totally safe. Being a single female traveler, safety is important to me. Ugo, the owner of the Surf Casitas was friendly and accommodating. He answered all my questions and made sure I had everything I needed. He lives on the property in his separate house.
I felt peace and tranquility staying there because my bungalow was surrounded by an abundance of exotic trees, plants and their foliage. It felt like I was in a rain forrest with all the vegetation and the sights and sounds coming from all the different wildlife. I could hear the growls of howler monkeys and the rustling of leaves as they moved from branch to branch. I could hear the different birds chirping in the morning while having my morning coffee sitting on the porch/patio. The porch had a big wooden table with three chairs. It was very relaxing and calming to just lie down in the hammock on the porch reading my book or on the internet because of the free wi-fi after a morning surf lesson. It is very conveniently located about a 5 minute walk to the beach. The beach was amazing. It was so pristine and not over crowded.
My bungalow was fully equipped with everything I needed. There was a queen/king sized bed, which I slept on very comfortably and a twin bed. My private bathroom with a shower had hot and cold water. The kitchen had a decent sized refrigerator, which came in handy to chill refreshments and fruits and vegetables. There was a stove, coffee maker, pots and pans to cook with, dishes, glasses, and utensils. Having an AC was a big plus because I was able to sleep cool and comfortably. There's also an outdoor shower with only cold water to wash off the sand after a day on the beach sunbathing or surfing. There was also a cleaning lady that came every other day.
I would definitely stay there again.
