The Surfers Residence welcomes surfers from all over the world and is open all year round. It is a combination of kiteschool and accommodation. This special mixture of surfer and kiter residence with a andalusian-moorish flair makes everybody to feel like home. Our self-created and creative furnishing ideas and the stunning rooftop terrace give it a very great character. For the cold months in winter we installed a under floor heating in the entire house and to not die of heat in the summer you can turn on the air condition. The Surfers Residence has the perfect location. It’s in the heart of the old town but still in a quiet part. There a numerous restaurants, bars and small corner shops for the daily needs just at your doorstep. In a two-minute walk you reach the sea and the port; the national park Del Estrecho is only around the corner. As a short resume you could say – everything the heart desires you find in the residence or is just a stone’s throw away.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I stayed here for 10 nights with two friends. It's a really great compromise between a hotel and a hostel. We had a private apartment between the three of us with kitchen facilities but we also had access to the communal areas including the kitchen and roof terraces.

We mainly cooked in the communal kitchen which was great for meeting and chatting with other people staying at the residence. The roof terraces were great in the evening for hanging out.

The residence was very nice and clean and well organised and everyone was very friendly.

I would definitely stay again and would also recommend it for solo travelers who want to meet people but are looking for something a notch up from a hostel.

It's been an absolute pleasure staying at Surfers Residence. It's the perfect place for meeting other kiters and travellers. Very well equipped kitchen, comfy beds, perfect location and amazing rooftop terraces with great views of Morocco. Basically, everything you're looking for. Surfers Residence is a place that feels like home, I can totally recommend this place!

We stayed 2 nights in Apartment Don Juliaan. We booked last minute via their facebook page so were able to save an extra 20%. The apartment was excellent, seemed new, great kitchen facilities and good bathroom. Really comfy bed - we slept very well. The rooftop terrace is spectacular. We are not kite surfers but this did not matter (actually we hardly even saw anyone else). The location is excellent.

If you are looking to meet People with the same interests (Kitesurfing) Its the place to be!
A really nice house very well located in the best part of the old town, not far from the ocean. Very nice people and atmosphere.
everything is super clean and new. The employees are really nice and help you as much as you can with all your questions.
Tarifa is such a wonderfull city. I come definitely back this year!

Can only recommend this place!

We spent 2 weeks kiting with Kitesurfing Club Tarifa and stayed at the Surfers Residence, and had an AMAZING vacation. The house is huge, with a well-equipped kitchen and massive roof terraces that overlook the old town. The staff is welcoming and helpful and organized evenings where everybody got together for paella. Definitely coming back! See you in September!

We stayed for 2 weeks at surfers residence.
It is a beautiful place in Tarifa's old town with a roof top terrace to have bbq in the evening.
Juliaan, the owner, is a great person who not only showed us the best kite surfing spots but also the best places to go out in town. He really made our stay unique.
I will definitely come back!
