About Pam Sweeney
WE FINISHED OUR HOUSE IN LA SALADITA IN 2009.. WE PICKED THIS AREA BECAUSE OF THE WAVES, THE PEOPLE AND THE BEAUTY OF THE LANDSCAPE. OUR HOUSE TOOK 2 YEARS TO BUILD. ALOT OF THOUGHT AND TIME WENT INTO ALL THE DETAILS OF OUT HOUSE. WE WANTED A VERY ORGANIC STYLE HOUSE WITH A FEELING OF CALM AS SOON AS YOU WALK IN THE DOOR. THE DOWNSTAIRS IS VERY BRIGHT AND HAPPY. OUR UPSTAIRS LOFT HAS WOODEN FLOORS AND WITH THE PALAPA ROOF IT HAS A JAPANESE ZEN FEELING. JUST RECENTLY WE FINISHED THE MODERN CABINA THAT HAS A VERY MINIMLAIST FEEL TO IT. RECENTLY WE HAVE BEEN GROWING SOME FRUIT TREES, RAISNG CHICKENS AND A FEW OTHER ORGANIC ITEMS AS WE ARE MOVING INTO MORE OF A SMALL ECO RESORT FEELING. FLORA DOES A LOT OF FARM TO TABLE STYLE COOKING. WE ARE SO EXCITED TO HELP HER PURSUE HER LOVE OF MAKING PEOPLE HAPPY THROUGH HER FOOD.

Love Surf Yoga had an incredible retreat at this location. We did yoga daily, ate delicious Mexican food provided by our amazing caretakers, surfed, walked to the surf break, enjoyed the incredible view. Everything was beyond expectations. I highly recommend it and we will be back!
A surfer's paradise!
I have stayed several times at Casa del Surfista. This house is one of my favorite spots in the world! My favorite thing about the house is the indoor/outdoor living aspect. Because of the open air design of the house, I feel like I am outside, enjoying the fresh, warm ocean air the entire time that I am there. I am not a fan of air conditioning (although it's available in the casitas), and I never need air conditioning in the house because the house takes advantage of ocean breezes and fans (when necessary). The whole property feels clean and well maintained. I love the scenic pool that overlooks the ocean for a post-surf dip. Another reason that I love spending a vacation at Casa del Surfista is because it is one of the most relaxing ways to spend a week. The caretakers who are also amazing cooks, do all of my meals. There is nothing better than waking up to a breakfast (and coffee) already cooked and a delicious dinner waiting for me when I get home from surfing. I don't spend endless time searching out restaurants and spending money on food that isn't good. I love to return to the house after surfing and read and relax without worrying about the next meal. On my last visit there was a new addition to the property; the "taco bar." Flora, one of the caretakers, cooks up homemade tortillas and tacos at the open-air taco bar and wood-fired stove. It was delicious! I have been to Casa del Surfista several times with my family and/or large groups. The house is ideal for families or groups. Again, because you have someone to cook and clean for you, all you have to do is enjoy and relax. And there is plenty of room for a lot of people. The hanging bed which overlooks the ocean is a great way to spend an afternoon reading or napping. During my last stay my husband I and slept in the "shark room," which is located in a different building from the main house. It is a beautiful, modern room. In keeping with the rest of the property, the bathroom has an open air aspect. The window in the shower is open and overlooks the expansive jungle area inland from the beach. It feels like showering outdoors, but in a private bath. It's amazing! Lastly, I love that I can choose to surf the long break at La Salitida, or even directly in front of the house where I have the wave all to myself! I really can't say enough about how much I love this house. I just wish I could go more often!
unique, restful, beautiful setting
Location: We flew into ZIH. Renting cars was challenging and frustrating. Pam , the owner helped us out with this. The drive was about 1 hour with the last 20 mins on a very bumpy road. The property and views - gorgeous and - quite private. Maybe due to the time of year the beach was partly sand with rocks making it challenging to walk very far with out good footwear. Right in front of the home was a nice sandbar, so we could walk out and play in the waves or surf. We made trips to Los Llamos , a close town for some provisions, Playa Salidita for surfing, and Troncones. Most of us were happy to hang out right at the Home with the beach and pool.
Home: quite well described previously, very impressive and for almost a week we had 17 people- 9 kids and 8 adults. We all fit well, and had enough areas to enable privacy.
I think it is important to note that the main villa is open air as described, we loved spending the days outside, with the beautiful ocean view. We did have some bugs spiders and bats. I view this a part of the experience of spending so much time outside in the warm climate. If you are looking for a closed off, paved, indoor, or less natural environment - better to stay elsewhere.
The rooms were comfortable and if you wanted the a/c was working - otherwise you can hear the ocean waves . The children slept in the main house without A/C and were very comfortable , it cooled down nicely at night.
Food and organizing details: The owner Pam was efficient and helpful. The family that looked after the house and grounds and food were outstanding. The food absolutely delicious and very fresh. It was a luxury to have Flora and her family buy, prepare and clean up after the meals.
Definite benefit if you know spanish , which I don't, but my beginner spanish improved and I am committed to learning more so I can go back and visit Casa del Surfista.
Luxury Private Beach Vacation
CASA DEL SURFISTA is gorgeous!! We had an amazing girls trip. The villa was spacious and had so much beautiful outdoor space, our group of 6 people had plenty of room to spread out. We spent our days relaxing by the pool and could not have been happier with the whole experience. The caretakers, Flora and Sarafine, are simply wonderful in every way and Flora is a fabulous cook. Her meals are delicious. She made breakfast, lunch and dinners for us every day and we enjoyed every meal. The house is extraordinary - gorgeous architecturally, and completely open to the ocean. And of course, the setting cannot be beat. Pam, the owner, helped us schedule Natalie, a fantastic yoga instructor and masseuse to come to the house. It doesn’t get any closer to Paradise!
We are so happy to hear that you had a great vacation!!!! I hope you guys come back again.
Casa Surfista is perfect for a large or medium size group.
We were in La Saladita for our wedding and had 49 guests, who came in from all over the country and Columbia. We rented 5 properties on the beach, but evey morning we started with a big breakfast at Casa Surfista. Flora and her family did a great job and were very nice. The pool was so nice and clean and the rooms were as well.
Thanks for helping create some wonderful memories for all of us! ❤️
Stunning beach palace w/incredible staff, a dream!
Casa del Surfista is an all around incredible rental if you have a large group. Everything about it felt like a dream -- relaxing in the daybed and hammocks just steps from the shoreline, practicing yoga by the beautiful pool and watching sunsets from the cozy living spaces, basking in the incredible architecture of the bedrooms and bathrooms...you couldn't ask for a better space for a yoga retreat, family reunion, or group getaway. Our favorite part of all however was the staff. Flora cooked the most incredible meals every single day and Sarafim had us laughing every second, with incredible stories of his heritage and the history of Saladita. It was a true family, homey feel with a paradise backdrop and all our needs were more than covered. There's no wifi which we enjoyed, keeping us present and disconnected from the digital world, because why would you have your attention anywhere else?! Thank you to everyone for giving us the trip of a lifetime. What an amazing trip!
We have a beach break in front of the house that is always empty. We are 1 mile to La Salditas point break.
