A Lush Relaxing Oasis...what a Jewel of a Spot

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 !

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!

We now have a perfect way to bring our young adult sons 'home' for the holidays every year. All we have to say is, "Want to go to Stef Surf in Costa Rica?" We've been back in the states 10 days and it has been so fun to hear both of our boys (16 and 18) tell friends and family about our trip. Stef Surf was our beautiful home base for countless adventures (many of which we would not have discovered without personal suggestions from Greg and Gladys). The proximity of beautiful beaches,fabulous restaurants and services mixed with the adventure of touring the country with brilliant guides blended perfectly. Coming home to the beautiful and well stocked El Defin after our outings and resting in the sanctuary of the grounds was delightful. We highly recommend Stef Surf, the wonderful caretakers, and anything else you can pack in to your trip.

A week in Paradise

  • Submitted: Jan 31, 2014

Stef Surf is surrounded by a high wall and when you step inside it is like stepping into an oasis with beautiful ferns and palm trees.
The four units are all beautifully decorated and geared to relaxation with day beds and chairs on the balconies. The pool area is very inviting for both swimming and lazing around.
The beach is a minute walk away and there are many good restaurants such as LasBrisis, the Shack , Purla's all within a few minutes walking distance and serve a wonderful variety of local cuisine.
The property is well maintained by live in staff and Greg and Gladys were extremely helpful in assisting us with tours and getting to know the lay of the land.It was a great holiday and I would recommend a visit to Stef Surf.

"Great Stay!"

The grounds are absolutely beautiful and lush...the pool amazing. For us it was perfect bc it was shady and kept us cool on some of the warmer days. Upon arrival it was cloudy, and we weren't really sure about Portrero Beach as we walked up (truly less than a five min walk)...but we learned within a few days that each and every beach changes color with the skies and sun position...pretty neat...the darker lava sand threw us for a loop at first, but we enjoyed the calm bay floating on rafts and noodles more than once! One day it was a cool green, one day a deep turquoise...and never crowded, it was ours...as were most of the beaches we visited.

The location is great, a quick drive to several other areas like Playa Danta, Tamarindo, and Langoste. Roads are good between towns...and we felt very safe at all times.

Stef Surf is very close to several cool little spots to eat and listen to music or participate in Karaoke (really hoping no one got video of that night!). Maxwells, El Coconut, La Perla and the restaurant at Bahia del Sol were all great, accommodating, and clean. We simply ran out of time to try others, not a single bad review for anything we tried. Bahia del Sol welcomed us at their swim up bar, spa, and restaurant.

Greg and Gladys happened to be in town while we were there and we really enjoyed talking with them, and they had so many great ideas for us. We seriously just needed more time...

Photos of condos and grounds are very accurate...and any issues we had were quickly attended to (but really we caused the only issue by blowing a breaker at the road bc we had too much going on at once inside, oops). Caretakers were always there to answer questions or help if needed. Only bathrooms are upstairs, which is fine, unless you have someone who can't do stairs...that is the only thing I would point out.

Stef Surf is a peace of paradise minutes away from the beach. The condo complex offers a very comfortable home away from home with all the amenities that we needed and more. We often started our day with smoothies made fresh from bananas grown on the grounds followed by a long walk on the beach. Although we love swimming in the ocean the pool and grounds of Stef Surf allowed us to cool down amongst the native fauna while sipping wine at pool side. Gladys and Greg are a wealth of knowledge which they freely share. From helping us to set up excursions with Jamie to restaurant recommendations. As we leave Costa Rica the only question is how soon can we return.

Stef Surf Condos- awesome place to stay in Costa R

  • Submitted: Jan 31, 2014
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
This was our first time to Costa Rica and how we fell in love with this beautiful country. We loved our stay at the Stef surf condos. We were met by a sweet caretaker, Marli, and she was so concerned about our comfort and making sure we were well taken care of. This condo unit is lovely and the grounds so lush and green. It has caretakers there 24/7. The location was great to many of the awesome beaches of Playa Flamingo, Playa Conchal, Playa Danta, Playa Potrero, and Tamarindo. Greg and Gladys have done an excellent job detailing the yummy restaurants in the area of the condo and we tried many of them and they were all great. Their information on fun activities was so helpful. The comfort of the condo was so nice. The kitchen has every thing you would need to cook with (but we did little due to the great restaurants). Great a/C, hot water, comfortable beds. The condo is located about a 5 minute walk to Playa Potrero. So we were able to have fun beach strolls. We did some inland visits to Rincon de la Vieja (great canopy tour and hiking here) and Tabacon Springs by Volcan arenal (must see). There is some driving involved, but what a way to see this beautiful country. I definitely would rent an aWD vehicle when coming here. There are a lot of dirt roads and it did help to have one. The roads from Liberia to the coast are nicely paved, but then you do get to the dirt roads as you get closer to the coast. There are nice grocery stores to purchase food at. I was surprised as how readily we could purchase items with the american dollar and how many people did speak English.There is so much to do here. We enjoyed surfing at Tamarindo and scuba diving off the coast of Playa Flamingo. We kayaked at Playa Danta. Then at night we watched the sun set at Playa Conchal. The ocean was about 85 to 90 degrees. So much to do here. Thanks again Stef Surf for your wonderful place to stay.

Enjoyed our stay at Stef Surf. Accomadations were first class, well appointed as if you were staying at a private residence not rental. Greg and Gladys were there at the 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. Tranquil setting (except for the howler monkey wakeup call at 5:00 am).

"Luxurious 2 BR Condo nr Playa Potrero"

"Luxurious 2 BR Condo nr Playa Potrero"
  • Submitted: Jan 31, 2014

We rented El Tucan from Semanta Sana March 2013. This condo is immaculate, a five minute walk to Playa Potrero, with shared pool among 3 other condos. The condo was absolutely gorgeous, clean, and very well decorated - loved the high ceilings and floor to ceiling glass doors and windows. Having a washer and dryer in the condo saved us from having to pack too many changes of clothes. The area surrounding the condo is quiet. It is a short drive to Playa Flamingo where we spent most of our time, had wifi, and cable TV. Bars and restos are close by so not much need to cook. The owners are very responsive to emails and all transactions went smoothly. Meeting the caretakers - Marling and Francisco were the best part of our stay. They were very attentive to our needs, friendly, and extremely helpful when we needed something. Marling has the best smile :)

What I liked best about the condo was its proximity to several beaches, various bars and restos, and two grocery stores. I was not too crazy about Potrero Beach but absolutely adored Flamingo. What I liked the least was the lack of a microwave and the gravel road to get in and out of the area (which did not bother the rest of my family one bit but gave me a big headache. The short drive seemed like a long journey LOL!).

I would highly recommend this condo to families looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city!

Our family of four had a terrific stay at Stef Surf during the last week of March. Private, lush and relaxing. Surf lessons, boogie boarding, beaches. Walked to wonderful local restaurants each evening - Las Brisas, Estero azul, Coconuts - can't go wrong. Hired guide, Jaime, for a trip to Palo Verde National Park - great day. Greg and Gladys were very easy to work with and very helpful with recommendations for food and activities. Definite repeat and highly recommended!
