The villa was very clean and perfect for my family of four. It was close to the beach and other areas that we went to on excursions.
What a great place to stay with access to approximately 10 incredible beaches.
The owner was extremely helpful and prompt on returning any questions.
Amazing mater bedroom where you felt like you were waking up in the trees.
We stayed 5 nights with our 2 sons and enjoyed all of the amenities and services at Stef Surf: access to many amazing and quiet beaches within 5-20 min by car (the Potrero beach being average compared to the others), great tips from concierge service, private pool on the premises, exceptional set up for each villa with private balconies and terrace, lush landscaping that makes you feel like you are in the middle of jungle. We cooked our meals each night on the BBQ - full kitchen provided. Living Pura Vida to its fullest.
Family of 4 (2 teenagers) had a great week at Stef Surf. The owners Greg and Gladys had us well prepared for our visit with a very detailed welcome package that included tips for everything from arranging shuttles to and from the airport (we used Ecotrans) to grocery, activity, and restaurant recommendations. The location was great - less than 5 minute walk to the beautiful and very quiet beach "Playa Potrero". There was a small grocery store with the essentials "Super Wendy" within a 5 minute walk (milk, juice, bread, eggs, alcohol, snacks, coffee, even fresh tamales one day). Many restaurants in walking distance. We enjoyed Smokin' Pig, Perlas, The Shack, The Sailing Centre, Plaemar, Sol Y Mar (our favourite), El Estero Azul, Soda Marcell, a'lo Nico, Soda Brasilito, Coco Loco. We rented a golf cart for the week which allowed us to see even more of the area including Brasilito, Flamingo, and Conchal. The property itself is absolutely beautiful and well-maintained by the very friendly Francisco and his wife Marling. They made us feel very welcome and safe during our stay. The property is like a jungle with lots of much-needed shade and a beautiful pool for cooling off in the afternoon. The master bedroom is huge with wonderful floor-to-ceiling sliding doors which we would open up each morning at dawn to hear the sounds of the ocean and the birds. The house has multiple air-conditioning units and fans to keep things comfortable. The kitchen is large and had great drinking water from the fridge. We cooked some breakfasts in the house and had everything we needed utensil-wise in the kitchen. Wi-fi was great throughout the property. Lis the concierge came to see us and gave us some great tips about the area and was available to us if we needed any help or wanted to book any excursions. Thanks to everyone at Stef Surf for a great week in the sun!
I really do not want to share, for fear you will not have room for the next vist. What a wonderful property you have. Thank you for the most wonderful holiday.
As you know I am not a great traveler but the time I have spent at your home and on your property has changed my mind.
I loved everything from the lovely grounds to my perfect accommodations. Everything was at my fingertips. Francisco and Marling, your care takers were amazing they made every day special.
When I needed to reach back home you even provide a free phone.
Your welcome package that arrived prior to my arrival was complete, I was never lost for a restaurant, grocery store or pharmacy or beach to visit.
Lis the property concierge was perfect arranging car rentals at rates I could not find my self and her suggestions for activities and local knowledge was invaluable.
I loved the pasta at the monkey bar, the margarita at las Brisas, the sunset and appetizers at the sailing centre, the dinners and entertainment at Perlas.
Thank you. Lyla ( Toronto )
