  • Heaven on earth!

    "This villa is incredible- truly a piece of heaven on earth. It is even more spectacular than the photos! The space is so tastefully done and the setting is out of this world. It was tempting to spend all our time relaxing around the infinity pool wathcing the children play, watching the birds or viewing the sunsets. But... Julie was amazing in helping us set up a variety of wonderful activites - sometimes at the last minute. She was incredible. The house is away from the bustle of "downtown Santa Teresa" which is perfect but the town and beaches are a quick drive down the hill ( 4 wheel drive recommended ). We were 2 families and the space was more than adequate for us. It was the best vacation I think I have ever had.Cant wait to go back. Thank you Julie, Hanit and Shumlik for sharing this glorious spot with us. Oh - and Melissa and Johnson were an added bonus! Pats for them both."

  • Great Home

    "My wife and 2 young girls and another family with 3 young children stayed at Casa Ying Yang for a week in April. We had a great time. The house is right off the a beautiful beach. The area in front of the house has a great surf break for experienced surfers. While the house is not super luxurious, it is very comfortable and absolutely appropriate for Costa Rica. Stefan, the owner could not have been more helpful. The house manager, Marta was terrific. She arranged everything that was required. Daily maid service kept the house very clean and comfortable. I would strongly recommend this house to anyone."

  • Beautiful property and exceptional hospitality

    "What an incredible month. Everything about our stay at Villa Pochote exceeded our expectations. The Villa itself has been built beautifully (by Trey himself) - clean, spacious, bright with outstanding views from both floors. Great swimming pool, barbecue area and a lovely yoga studio free to use at your leisure with a great teacher who comes every Wednesday at sunset and teaches a class. If you want wildlife you're in the right place too - Iguanas, Howler monkeys, Whiteface monkeys, red squirrels, Coatis, an abundance of birds, the garden is teeming with life and when you sit an wait, it all comes to you. You can walk the the closest beach (Playa Manzanillo) in around 10 minutes but to get anywhere else you'll need a 4x4 or a quad/buggy as the roads are tough work otherwise. And you will definitely want to go everywhere else. So get one. The next beach along is Hermosa where I spent most of my time, great for surfing, beautiful sand, and with a guy who sells coconuts and delicious ceviche out of the back of his van for when you get hungry or thirsty. From there you're on the road to Santa Teresa, a bustling little surf town packed full to the brim with good vibes. There are a number of great bars and restaurants, plenty of surf stores and a few small supermarkets to pick up supplies. All along Santa Teresa are more pristine beaches, usually busy with local and travelling surfers. Further out from Santa Teresa you'll find plenty of nature reserves, other little towns and an abundance of staggering waterfalls (some easier to find than others). The best bit, however, is Trey and Jaclyn. Their hospitality knows no bounds. They gave us lifts to town, surf lessons, the best advice on where to go, they lent me snorkelling gear, Trey flexed his superlative BBQ skills when we all had a cookout, they booked us taxis, Jaclyn took me to the rodeo in Cobano, Trey even took time out of his day taking me around properties that were for sale when I expressed interest. The list very much goes on. Overall we count ourselves lucky to have found such a breathtaking place. If the rest of Costa Rica is as wonderful as the tiny slice we saw then what a country it is. As an unexpected bonus we have also made great friends along the way. We will surely be back. Pura Vida"

  • Nicest place to stay in Santa Teresa

    "My wife, Dallas and I arrived at Andy's and Cota's Villas the morning of December 31. We had really done our homework looking at different places in Costa Rica and we kept coming back to Surf Vista Villas. Dealing with Andy and Cota was comfortable, both were willing to give honest and excellent information about the Restaraunts and Sodas in the area. They were also very helpful with areas to tour. The area is simply beautiful with lots of different things to do. The Villa itself was very nice with the added surprise of the pool that was installed in November. If we weren't going somewhere for the day, we would go to the ocean in the morning, back to the pool for part of the afternoon and then back to the ocean for the awesome sunsets in the evening and then out for dinner. Santa Teresa itself is basically 1 long road, mostly dirt. Very safe and friendly with lots of nice places to eat, you just have to ask Andy. We only had 2 bad meals out of the 13 nights there and they were places that we decided to try on our own. While we were there, there were people from all over the world staying at Surf Vista Villas. Most people were really nice while a couple of people were more interested in staying to themselves, which worked out well because of the privacy each Villa had. Andy had an ATV that we rented for the whole time which was the best way to get around. If you like surfing then Santa Teresa is the place to be. We didn't surf but there was plenty of places to explore and relax. We will be going back."
