Wow! Where do I start? Surf Vista Villas exceeded all my expectations. The property was beautiful. We stayed upstairs and had a wrap around balcony. The ocean view was incredible and so peaceful. The privacy was excellent. We had our own hammock and outdoor table and chairs which we spent a lot of time at listening to the monkeys and...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Surf Vista Villas is a great place to stay in lovely Santa Teresa. The accommodations were perfect for our family vacation. The room was large and comfortable. I really liked the large veranda, with swinging chairs and hammocks. It also has a roll down screen that blocks the excess sun to keep the place cool, yet preserving the superb view....
