Better late than never but I stayed here a few years ago and it was perfection. Clean rooms, nice and quiet. Every morning I would sit out on the balcony and watch he monkeys jump around from tree to tree while sipping on coffee and eating fresh fruit. Took a surf lesson from Nico and caught my first wave ever!...

Rumbo is a very good quiet place espacially for couples. The rooms are basic but with everything you need (bed, a/c, kitchen). If there is a problem the host Matias fixes it. He is very helpful in everything and has good recommendations for surfing schools and restaurants. The rooms are cleaned twice a week. The gardener looks also to keep...

We had heard great things about this lodge and its host, which are reflected in virtually all of the other tripadvisor reviews for the lodge.

Stayed just under a week in the relatively quiet period of early June. It's a little distance from the main Santa Teresa buzz which was just perfect for me as it's much quieter and yet the same distance to the beach - 100 metres. Mateus, resident host, is super friendly and resourceful with great knowledge of the area and always...

This place is close to an amazing beach and close to a great local soda. The accommodations have nice hammocks and pretty good WiFi in the balcony areas. We were let into our rooms early and allowed to store our bags while we were out on a day trip. This was a very nice thing to do and above and...

Everything about this place was as presented. 100 yards from a great beach that has waves for beginners to advanced surfers. You can rent a surf board from right across the street. Great rooms that are super clean. There are 4 rooms on the property, all are excellent. The staff is helpful and friendly. And the little town is awesome....

I stayed here for a week in september 2014. I had an upstairs apartment in the 2nd building, farthest from the street. The apartment is set up as an efficiency, one room with a kitchen.
