I stayed at Surf 787 in the first week of November 2011. Kind of a slow time in the area, but the relaxed vibe was just what the doctor ordered. Between the beach, bars, Quicksilver Surf Contest, BMX Contest and Halloween Parties there was plenty to do over the four night stay.
First off, Lisa and Roger are great. They really make you feel at home. Starting the day with Lisa's tasty breakfast was a neccessity for a morning out learning to surf with Roger. I am a first time surfer and felt very comfortable with Roger and Nego's instruction. We went out surfing three days, one in town and two out of town. Roger knows all the spots for waves of students of all levels.
The b&b is great. The View and Sunset is terrific (although the beach is always good for that too). The Oceanic Room was super clean and plenty big enough with a large bathroom, lots of closet space and patio access. The patio was a great spot to decompress in the hammock after a day on the beach, as well as a perfect spot for breakfast. The area is really quiet and serene, unlike some b&b's in Rincon that cater to a younger party crowd. Close enough to everything, including night life to enjoy the party but far enough away to enjoy a restful night's sleep.
I was travelling solo and the vibe and accomodations were perfect for me. I could see coming here as a couple or with a family. There is plenty of space, a great pool, yoga space and game room. Roger and Lisa made me feel very welcome and were a great source of places to eat, drink and see in and around rincon. I can't wait to go back, although I will definitely work on my core and balance before I attempt to ride the waves.
Thanks again Roger and Lisa. I hope that Bella the doggie is recovering nicely from her accident.
