Are you a competent, experienced or advanced level surfer who wants a surf holiday that puts you right next to or with easy access to fantastic surf spots but has no need of all the bells and whistles and extras which surf services operators offer? Additionally, are you completely comfortable and happy to cater for yourself or want the freedom of coming and going as you please? Do you want somewhere to stay while you undertake your surf adventures which doesn't compromise on a comfortable and quality living standard? If you answered yes to all the above then the perfect answer would be self-catering apartments or villas.

The wide variety of options here typically includes no services because you don't need them and nobody wants to pay for something they won't be using? What you will get much of the time is the use of a hire car which gives you complete independence and freedom and lets you go exploring from your base area to check out all that the region has to offer in the way of surf breaks. Self-catering options are all about the accommodation and the surf – simple.

Self-catering surf accommodation is for the free spirited, independent traveler who doesn't want to be tied to schedules or some-one else's timetable.

Solo travelers seeking some tranquility and escape; families looking to spend some quality time together both in and out of the ocean; couples who have no need of services or the company of larger social groups and traveling surf crews who have gathered together their favorite surf buddies to spend time with – no matter what category you fall into a surf villa or apartment could be the ideal answer.

Self-catering surf accommodation can be found at every price level so, whether you are on a limited budget or are looking for a little luxury, you will be sure to find something here which will tick all the boxes on your personal requirements list.

Think of a popular surf area and the chances are that there will be something on offer as a self-catering option for your surf trip.

Fancy scoring yourself a few world class rides in Indonesia with its warm water and tropical weather? If so you can pick from the ever popular Bali, East Java and little known Sumba or the legendary Mentawis. North African surf adventures feature prominently with lots of Moroccan based choices, typically the wave rich area of Taghazoute, while the Atlantic coasts of Portugal and France are also widely covered as destination choices.

Or how about the Canary Islands of Fuerteventura, Lanzarote and Tenerife with their reefs aplenty and all year round good weather so that you can spend all day in the green room if you like?

There are many destination choices – whether you have a definite place in mind already or are looking to be inspired by the options available.

So, if you are finding your mind drifting off at the most inappropriate times to dream of surfing or of picturing yourself lazing around in a beach front villa watching the lines roll in with a cold beer in your hand then now is the time to put your dreams into action. What are you waiting for? Contact us and we can help you plan out the perfect self-catering surf trip and link you up with a villa or apartment with perfect surf right in front of you.
