Guestbook comments from the owner
We visited Stef Surf with our 3 children ages 15,10 and 2. The house had absolutely everything we needed to fully enjoy our stay at the beach. Our kids loved the refreshing pool, and walking to the beach. The property is beautiful and lovingly cared for. We rented bikes to cruise town, and visit nearby beaches. Greg and Gladys are wonderful hosts. We truly felt like a part of the local community thanks to their enthusiasm and warmth and all the insider tips. Highlights included the swim up bar at Bahia del Sol, playa Penca, Las Brisas, karaoke at Max's, a trip to Rincon de la Vieja with Jaime and the pizza party at Stef Surf. Truly a wonderful place!

Good location close to many beaches and restaurant

  • 4 of 5
We stayed in El Pelicano for one week in early February. Because this is a small condo complex the pool was almost never occupied and neither were the loungers so that was nice. The condo is pretty well equipped except for a bbq (although Greg and Gladys were gracious to let us borrow theirs) and some kitchen items. The master bedroom is huge. Air conditioning worked well. The property is well cared for and we found everyone (Greg, Gladys, Marling and Francisco) to be very friendly, helpful and accommodating. The Playa Potrero beach was within walking distance of the condo and was an okay beach. A grocery store is within walking distance and we've always felt safe in this area of Costa Rica. Many good restaurants within a walk or short drive away. We love Mar Y Sol restaurant in Playa Flamingo and they have a complimentary pickup and dropoff service so you can go there and enjoy the sunset, a few drinks and a fantastic meal and not have to drive! We love Costa Rica. We stayed here in Feb 2013.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5
Accommodations and hosts exceeded expectations

0ur recent stay at Stef Surf was absolutely wonderful, due to the knowledge and kindness of Greg and Gladys and to the high quality of the condo we rented. We traveled with two other people and found the space accommodated us beautifully. It was spacious, clean and in a perfect setting with a sparkling pool and comfy lounging spots all around. Lush foliage shades the long walkways to each condo (there are only four with identical floor plans) and privacy is assured. Yet people can join in the common area to share information and get good recommendations for food and tours from Greg and Gladys. Greg checked with us frequently to secure bike rentals, transportation to and from the airport, and a river tour booking with a wonderful guide, a native Costa Rican with a wealth of knowledge and a fine sense of humor. The area, Playa Flamingo by reference, is called Surf Side and has fun restaurants within walking and biking distance. We enjoyed breakfast at the Shack, the swim up bar of Bahia del Sol and the graciousness and friendliness of owners and vacationers as we walked and biked our way around. We long wanted to go to Costa Rica and now that we've been, we'll join others who return regularly. Everything about Stef Surf exceeded expectations and we are already looking at dates to take our grown children with us.

Second Time Stay

  • 5 of 5
This was our second visit to Stef's surf and it was just as wonderful as the first. Greg and Gladys are truly the best hosts possible. They both go out of their way to make you feel at home and have great knowledge of the surrounding restaurants, beaches, and sights in the area. The condo's are in a great area, close to beaches and many restaurants and our favourite hangout - Perla's. The pool area is truly a lush tropical garden. Francisco and Marly, the condo's maintenance and housekeeping staff do a great job to keep the grounds clean and safe. Well worth it to book a vacation at Stef's surf. Our adult children joined us this year and took advantage of surfing, Paulo Verde jungle tour, jet skis and horseback riding on the beach. Greg and Gladys made sure we had the opportunity to also go to the "Drag" races and Parade. Quite a sight to see!! Thanks again you two. See you next year!!! Neil & Susan from Winnipeg, Canada

PARADISE FOUND!

  • 5 of 5
Enjoyed our stay at Stef Surf. Accommodations were first class and well appointed as if you were staying at a private residence, not a rental. Greg and Gladys were there at the same time and provided great tips on restaurants and places to visit. Highpoints for all of us were the people, the river tour with our private guide and the restaurants in the area. Stef Surf is a beautiful oasis - definitely a tranquil setting (except for the howler monkey wakeup call at 5:00 a.m.!). Don & Shelley from Vancouver, Canada.

Peaceful, lush retreat

  • 5 of 5
As soon as we returned home we started planning our next stay at Stef Surf! The location is great - walking distance to the beach, good restaurants and bars, grocery store, bakery and fresh fruit\vegetable stand. The accommodations were perfect - well-equipped kitchen, washer\dryer, 2 luxurious bedrooms with balconies, 2 bathrooms, a large bright living room, 2 outdoor shaded sitting areas (1 with BBQ) and wifi through-out. We were 2 couples and stayed in El Toucan which was very quiet and private and most days we had the pool all to ourselves. Our hosts and fellow Canadians, Gladys and Greg, couldn't have been more helpful and were an incredible resource for all things local, including restaurant recommendations, booking tours, sources for fresh fish and suggestions for walks. They are also very knowledgable about the local flora and fauna. This is a very laid back, peaceful and unspoiled area of Costa Rica and the people, Ticos, ex-pats and tourists alike, all seem to be genuine and happy to share their "Pura Vida" experience. Highlights - the lush tranquil gardens surrounding the pool, waking up to the sounds of the parrots and monkeys, a hike in Rincon de la Vieja National Park with local guide, Himmie (sp?) and walking the beach at sunset.
