This is such a great place to stay and to learn surfing. During my trip in Mexico this was definitely one of the best stops!

The instructors are really cool and good trained to help you on the board and get a feeling for the ocean. They take they time, so that you definitely enjoy your lesson.

I absolutely recommend this place! Thank you for a great time David and Swantje. I would love to come back :)

Went for a week with 3 friends. We had a great week of surfing with awesome guides who took us to quiet surf spots, gave great instruction and were very fun to hang out with. They also had a great selection of boards that we were able to switch up any given day.

The location is perfect in La Punta, meters away from the beach with a nice left point break. We stayed in room 6, which was spacious and has a great balcony on the roof where you can see the point break.

We also opted for the breakfast at their nearby restaurant which was a good add-on; healthy and hearty for a packed days full of surfing and exploring.

No complaints on the week and would recommend this relaxing house to anyone looking for a relaxing week of surfing & sun.

Located at La Punta de Zicatela, apart from moving to go surf Zicatela some minutes away, you don´t need to move around with such a chill house kind of immersed in nature with lots of vegetation and the ocean right in front ... great rooms and hosts, attention is great and they will take you to surf around, surf instruction was also great, taking care of your safety and making sure you´re on the best waves! If you´re lucky you´ll also meet a bunch of other nice guests ... I hope to be back soon!

We stayed for one week at the surf house and had a fantastic time. David and Swantje are friendly hosts and the surf instructors make you feel safe and are very encouraging. Intermediate and above surfers can opt to go with a guide and David and Carlos both took my boyfriend to some awesome surf and breakfast spots while I was taking lessons. The area is so chill and there are many great places to eat nearby. We also made some good friends at the hostel from various corners of the world. Highly recommend. Come for the right reasons and you will not be disappointed.

Couldn't recommend this place more highly. Very friendly and accommodating owners and great surf instructors. Had never surfed before and decided to extend my stay because I had clearly found a gem of a place and the lessons were so much fun. Thanks everyone!

Not a resort and not a hostel, the surf house really feels homey, yet exciting. Great to have big comfortable private rooms, but also meet lots of like-minded people. I went down on my own for a week and made some great friends, while learning to surf for the first time and go on a day surf trip with David (the owner) as well. La Punta is really a lovely little escape and close enough for a cheap cab ride to Zicatela or downtown Puerto Escondido. Hope to go back some day!
