We rented a small bungalow at surf casitas, it is a small property with lots of greenery, a quiet atmosphere and lots of wildlife!
The owner/manager is an excellent host, Ugo knows tons about the local area, where to eat what to see, and surrounding areas, towns and activities.
We were looking for a quiet place, and really enjoyed the independent style of the bungalows. We had a kitchen, bathroom (hot showers too), and bed...No tv, but who needs it on holidays? The kitchen had a gas stove which was nice, closet to hang things, fridge, pots and a pan, dishes etc. It was simple and perfect for us! We rarely ever saw anyone else around, the other guests came and left quietly and there was no noise at night. The room was cleaned for us every other day and because it was small it stayed tidy in between.
The location & amenities
The location was good, very close to a market with all food and grocery items that you would need, and walking distance from the town and many restaurants. Tha main town is a bit far, definitely walkable, but having a quad or scooter is pretty nice. The amenities were great, there was anything you need for a basic holiday!
Best & Worst
Best: The place was always quiet and whenever we wanted to relax we could have a meal on the porch. Even on the one day that it rained it was nice to sit outside and to have a nice hangout. The windows open wide when it gets hot at midday, or A/C was available too.
Worst: We had to go back to work! I would go back to Santa Teresa any day and would definitly rent a bungalow from Surf Casitas again.
