I’ve stayed at Casa Chameleon recently and loved it. The roads are rough so you’d probably want to rent an ATV to ride down to St. Teresa or Hermosa for surfing. There is another good surfing spot on the opposite side of the peninsula near Montezuma. Not sure about the other location.

There are 10-12 total villas and each are separate and completely private. Every one has it's own plunge pool. The two largest "Ultra" and "Estrella" have larger pools... one has waterfalls at the end of the pool.
