We have stayed here before, and come back as we like Fernando and Kristie and Cuchara and the surf house and the ocean and the area. This time we spent one night in the newly added room on first floor. It was very nice -- we enjoyed the private entrance and patio. We like that the surf house is within walking distance to the beach - plus we like TP8, the restaurant at the end of the block. One of us was able to take surf lessons again. We met and shared some time upstairs with very nice people from France. We learned about Curly's ice cream rolls -- sold on the beach. There is always someone or something new in the area to learn about or meet!
We like staying here, and have stayed here numerous times. Our preference is room one, which has a private bathroom. Each year Fernando makes a change or two. We thoroughly enjoyed the hammocks in the rancho by the pool --- the shade made them the perfect spot for reading or taking a little nap. The beach, which is fabulous, is a short walk and there is a restaurant within walking distance, too. Having access to a shared cooking area / refrigerator is a definite plus, as we like to put together a meal now and then. We think Fernando is the best. He is an excellent surfing instructor -- just ask him if you wish to set up a time. He knows the best places to go, and can help you with whatever you want to plan.
This is the best place to stay in Santa Teresa! I have been here twice, and I'm sure it's not the last.
It takes only a few minutes to walk to Playa Hermosa, where its perfect to surf. You can either have lessons or rent a board from Fernando. He is a great instructor!
There are a lot of activities available in the area, always something to do.
The house is clean and have everything you need. It's decorated so beautifully!
If you have any questions, or need anything they will help you. Such wonderful people, Kristin and Fernando.
This was our second time staying here. There were some improvements done outside that made it extra nice to lounge by the pool or visit with other people. Fernando is a superb instructor at surfing. He also helps you to arrange activities you would like to do or provides information --- such as the names of good restaurants. Good people, good place. We plan on staying here again.
I have been so fortunate that my first two surfing adventures have both been with Fernando at El Chante Surf house at one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. On top of all this Playa Hermosa has such amazing waves that it is really hard to duplicate this overall experience. I was very fortunate to be catching the green waves on my second day of lessons with Fernando this December. It is truly an amazing feeling to catch that first green wave and ride it all the way into the sand. Wow!
