What can we say about this glorious, secluded getaway? We opted for the rooftop suite, and all week long, felt like we were in our own private Treehouse Paradise. The enclosed bedroom provides terrific airflow, with screened windows on all four sides, and A/C should it get too warm. The rest of the space is fully outside: a covered kitchen...

We stayed in the private villa, it was very cute and the view was amazing! We felt like we had our own private room in paradise. We loved having a kitchen, we made fresh fruit smoothies every morning which was amazing. Every night the sunset was beautiful, the pool was great after a day at the beach. Overall would recommend...

We stayed for two weeks at the Surf vista Villas. We went with two toddlers, two adults and two teens (who stayed in small apartment) and my sister came as well with her family staying in a separate villa. We had a great visit. Staying at the top of the hill was great. No dust, great views, morning monkey calls...

Just returned from spending 10 days at Surf Vista Villas and it was amazing. Although up a very large hill from town (you need an ATV) it makes it that much more special. Waking up to White Faced Monkeys, Howlers, Iguanas and lovely birds each day was amazing. The rooms were clean and so spacious and the staff do an...

We just returned home from a great time in Santa Teresa. SVV was perfect! Clean rooms, great hosts, stunning views, and MONKEYS! We watched monkeys from our rooms every day we were there...magical! The quad rentals being on-site were perfect and convenient. Although we had a rental car, the quad was great for exploring some of the dirt roads. Thank...

Everything Peter S (recent review) said is true, and just about exactly what I'd write. My partner and I didn't surf but we did go on some pretty neat excursions (on a Surf Vista Villa ATV, of course!), including a trip to see the falls in Montezumma (about 40 minutes away), zip-lining (about 20 minutes away) and Hermosa Beach (about...

We LOVED our stay at Surf Vista Villas. We were upstairs in the Roca Mar suite - a huge room with 3 beds, a sofa area and floor to ceiling windows giving us THE BEST sunset views we've ever seen. Cota was so helpful and full of great tips, from booking our ATV for us (recommended if you're heading there...

We were looking forward to visiting Santa Teresa and staying at Surf Vista Villas - neither disappointed. While not really falling into the Family or Couples category TripAdvisor ask us to select for these reviews, it was my mother and me travelling together around Costa Rica; two adults with a sense of adventure. Our room could have slept 6 with...

We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay at Santa Teresa Surf Vista Villas. I do have a few issues to address regarding your review. First of all. I would like to inform you and the rest of the people reading this : All business owners pay taxes in our town, we are regulated by the government. Whether businesses...

I cannot recommend this place highly enough. First of all, the setting is absolutely breathtaking. It's situated on the top of a large, secluded hill away from the hustle and bustle of Santa Teresa. The place is surrounded by the jungle with a near 180-degree view of the coast. There are lots of interesting plants and animals to look at....
