SVV and Santa Teresa are special places in the world. This was my wife and I's second time staying with Andy and are planning to go back. I really miss my coffee in the morning (early) listening to the surf. The hill is a bit of a pain, but theres nothing like it to create privacy. Everyone we've met there...

Had an epic time at surf vista villas. My husband and I and our 5 mo old son stayed for just over 4 weeks and enjoyed every moment. The rooms are clean and spacious with a great view. The kitchens have pretty much all you need and we ate in all but 2 nights of our stay. The villa is...

This is the 2nd time we've stayed at Surf Vista villas and wouldn't stay anywhere else when in Santa Teresa ( 1st time we extended from 4 to 8 weeks). We were there for 3 weeks and again hated having to leave. You are close to the beach and everything else down on the main road, but it's so good...

My husband & I stayed at Andy's place for 10 days for our honeymoon - it was perfect!

My wife and I spent a week at the villas for our honeymoon and we couldn't have picked a better place. The setting and location were amazing, set up on a bluff in the forest overlooking Santa Teresa beach. We spent the week beach hopping, which worked out so well as there were numerous beaches within a 20 minute drive....

My boyfriend and I straggled in at around 9pm without a reservation, but was recommended to us by the place we had stayed at in Lake Arenal. We had tried to call earlier on in the day and no one had picked up so we chanced it and decided to try our luck. At first, it was daunting driving up...

My 4 girl friends and I decided to do a girls trip to Costa Rica and could not have been happier with Andy's place.
