I like the organisation at Maverick. You feel like belonging to a community but at the same time people are autonomous and free to join / not join events / dinners, etc.

The staff is amazingly nice and fun. Lisa the yoga instructor really makes a good job and is a very nice person. Finally, customers are a balanced mix of friends / solo travelers / families of all ages, which allows to meet very different people.

"Very relaxing - apart from the surfing!"

The Maverick is lovely, great facilities (kitchen, bathroom, dining area, pool area, gardens and winter garden). Very clean. Staff all helpful and friendly. The location is rural but that's fine for me as it made it more relaxing than being in the town. Breakfast was lovely - good choice. Surfing was great fun - class sizes small which helps for beginners! They also have a great yoga studio and we had a yoga class on the beach which whilst cold was really beautiful.

a wonderful holiday in a great location in the interior od the Land. loving people who were more of a host.

Die Anlage ist wunderschön und es fehlt an nix, es ist alle sehr naturverbunden und der Pool läd zum Verweilen ein.

Die Surfstunden sind sehr effizient und machen mit den Surflehrern wahnsinnig Spaß. Die Betreuung war sehr gut und die Lehrer sind auf das Level von einem eingegangen.

Die Yogsstunden sind der perfekte Ausgleich und sind umwerfend - von anstrengend bis zur Mediation.

Julia und Jenne haben das klasse gemacht.

Die Location auf dem Hügel im dem Chalet ist umwerfend.

Alles in allem ein klasse Urlaub mit netten Menschen um einen rum.

Eignet sich sowohl für allein reisen, oder mit Freunden al Paar oder in der Familie.

Für alle die Surf, Yoga und Spaß begeistert sind.

I had the best time at The Maverick and I can recommend anyone who is looking for a place to relax and meet wonderful people to spend some time there! I wish I could have stayed longer and I will be back for sure! The atmosphere was warm and welcoming from the moment I arrived until my departure when Julia and the rest of the team made it hard for me to leave. Besides The Maverick team the surf lessons are a reason to stay there. The groups are small and the instructors make sure everyone gets the support they need. In conclusion: great environment, beautiful houses and garden, fun surf lessons with experienced instructors, awesome food and most of all - amazing people! A must go!

"Schöne Location - leider ungepflegt"

Eine wunderschöne Anlage mit allem ...gut durchdacht und mit tollen Ideen sportlich wie für das Auge.

Der Highlight für mich waren die Yogastunden mit LISA - sehr sehr gut - eine wunderbare Yogalehrerin - danke dir Lisa.

I had an amazing time at the Maverick. The staff are extremely efficient, welcoming, and friendly. The guesthouse is beautiful, so well designed, and extremely clean. The breakfast is delicious and filling. The gardens and sun-deck are wonderful. The pool is really luxurious. The surf lessons at Up Rise Surf School are tailored to individual needs and really helped me improve my technique. The yoga teacher was great and very attentive. Overall a wonderful stay and very good value. I can't wait to go back.
