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!

BEACH LOVERS' PARADISE

Beach Lovers' Paradise
  • 5 of 5
My husband and I traveled to Costa Rica for our honeymoon, and after a night in San Jose we drove across the country to Stef Surf in El Delfin. Stef Surf was absolutely perfect. The condo was beautiful! We loved the large open space and especially enjoying morning coffee on the balcony overlooking the gardens below. From the moment I inquired about Stef Surf, Greg and Gladys went above and beyond to make our stay wonderful. Greg and Gladys gave us several recommendations for the local food we really enjoyed Las Brisas and the macadamia nut pancakes at a small eatery close by. Greg and Gladys really helped us feel at home and shared their local wisdom of the area.
We rented a car and really enjoyed that Stef Surf was not in a large condominium complex but conveniently located near many restaurants and beaches. During our stay at Stef Surf Gladys helped us book a snorkling cruise with Panache which was wonderful! The boat was roomy, unlimited drinks and a small dinner was included. We got to enjoy a beautiful sunset from the boat, so even if you don't snorkel the sailboat ride is a great experience.
We visited playa penca, playa flamingo, and playa dante. We loved them all, but if we had to choose playa dante was probably our favorite. We had breakfast there on the beach and spent a couple days paddle boarding.
I cannot say enough good things about our accommodations at Stef Surf and the hospitality of Greg and Gladys. I only wish we could have stayed longer, and I hope we can return soon!

A LUSH RELAXING OASIS...WHAT A JEWEL OF A SPOT

  • 5 of 5
Greg and Gladys have obviously missed their vocational calling. While actually in the Real Estate business, they couldn't be more welcoming hosts and more informative travel consultants for the entire Guanacaste province. Everything from the online welcome package to daily advice on great things to see and do in the area exceeded our expectations. Our Villa / Condo was absolutely gorgeous with all the modern amenities of home, and placed amongst the lush jungle greenery and freshwater pool that makes up Stef Surf. It is also very central to everything including the lovely beaches, howler monkeys, restaurants, grocery & wine/beer shopping, fruit and meat markets, banks....everything! What I liked best after arriving home from zip-lining, river tours or beach walking was coming "home" to the refreshing pool and chilling out with Greg & Gladys and other guests around the "hot" tub! What a wonderful vacation !

FIRST STOP OF OUR HONEYMOON!

  • 5 of 5
We found this accommodation here on VRBO. We were on our honeymoon with another couple, and we are so happy we found Surf Stef. Many many thanks to Greg & Gladys for making the first part of our trip amazing. Anything they recommend to you, do it. We wanted to take them both along with us for the rest of our trip :) The area has lots of wonderful beaches and eateries. Our highlights include: Playa Conchal for snorkeling, Playa Dante, The Shack, Playa Avellenas, & Lolas at Playa Avellenas. The private river boat tour with Jaime is also a wonderful adventure. Surf Stef offers a wonderful peaceful gated area, and the pool is a highlight. Francisco is a delight to have around and assist with anything.Thank you again Greg & Gladys!

GREAT PLACE, EXCELLENT HOSTS

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay here, the place was clean and comfortable, and the location was ideal for swimming and touring nearby attractions. We didn't need to do any of our own research because the owners were very helpful, gave us all the restaurant info we needed and put us in contact with a fabulous local tour guide. Our hosts were very friendly and made us very welcome. We were traveling with a young child, and it was also very family friendly. I would definitely stay here again.

BEST BEACH HOUSE WE HAVE EVER RENTED

  • 5 of 5
Greg and Gladys at Stef Surf are only one of the many reasons why staying there is so delightful. They are fun and charming hosts who will guide you to every restaurant, bar, or event you would like to attend. And they'll often go with you! The walled in garden with four identical 2- story beach houses is an oasis of plants and cooling water. It is gorgeously designed for beauty and privacy, yet creates common space to meet the other guests. Each house is a soothing combination of shade and sun with sliding glass doors to four different porches on both levels. The palms outside the windows bend in the breeze and host songbirds from dawn to dusk. We stayed there with another couple, reading, cooking,exploring beaches, and venturing out for Mardi Gras celebrations, live music, a local carnival, zip lining in the hills, and touring with a guide down the river looking for monkeys and crocodiles. We had such a marvelous time that we are already planning to go back to Stef Surf next winter. You can't go wrong staying there!!

IT WAS THE BEST TRIP EVER

  • 5 of 5
Thanks to Greg and Gladys we had an awesome time. When we started planning the trip we had no idea where to go but Greg sent us a complete list of things we can do and also had a concierge that came to the house to help us plan our stay.
The house is beautiful and safe. We would love to stay there again when we travel to Costa Rica.
