We spent a week in Surfactivity guesthouse and definitely will come back again. The rooms are very comfortable and decorated in a very tasteful style. Everything is very clean, the shared kitchen has everything you need. Francesco the owner helps you with renting a car, surfboard or whatever you need. The location of the guesthouse is perfect, just 10 minutes... More

I spent the last week in one of the apartments here. The apartments are spacious, clean and tastefully decorated, with good cooking facilities and strong water pressure in the shower (this definitely makes a difference). Francesco, the owner, was also kind enough to organise internet and take me to the doctor when I got sick. All in all, a very... More

We had a very warm welcome from Francesco! He made us feel very welcome and helped us finding the good spots in Santa Maria. The guest house is on the calmer side of Santa Maria, but still close enough to the village to go out for breakfast or dinner, or any day activity you choose to do. Our stay was... More

I like this place, I felt at home and Francesco takes good care of his guests! The interior design is tasteful and comfortable. The rooms are clean, with balcony and your own bathroom. There's a common kitchen you share with other guests. The beach and all restaurants are easily accessible in walking distance.

Nothing to look at on the outside with the rooms as basic as you could want but incredibly helpful owner. 4 rooms per floor share a kitchenette and living room. All rooms are ensuite(i think) with balcony. Owner great- could not have been more helpful- even better as it is on the outskirts of town(5 mins to town centre) no... More

We stayed 2 weeks in this lovely place. The owners, Francesco and Deborah are very friendly and helpful. Although the apartment is 15 min away from the city, Santa Maria is a safe place to walk around and also taxis are always available. We would we be happy to stay at the surfactivity again!

We asked for normal apartment 15 days in December, owner Francesco gave us penthouse on top for the same price, and didn't ask any money in advance for reservation. Until our taxi driver picked up us on airport (arranged by Francesco) we were not 100% sure that best apartment is waiting for us,only reviews on Tripadvisor made us certain that... More

Gorgeous rooms, very nicely decorated! Very very clean and price is great. Common large kitchen which was perfect. Made breakfast every morning myself. Nice walk to the centre. Absolutely recommended! I had the turquoise room and I loved it! Would definitely stay here again.
