"I stayed here the week before Easter for a week of surf and yoga. I was traveling alone looking to relax and improve my surfing. I got this and more. Phillipp was the best surf instructor I ever had taking time to give everyone individual feedback on their surfing and how to improve it. His love of surfing really comes across in the lessons and is very motivating. Yoga was very relaxing and done over looking the beautiful lake. Rose the teacher gave modifications for each exercise which meant anyone of any level could enjoy the class whether a yoga expert or a complete beginner. The surrounding area itself was beautiful with plenty of places to go for a walk or drive around. The cliffs are definitely worth a view. I stayed in both the guesthouse and the surf lodge. Both were great, the lodge was super chilled though I could see myself coming back with a group and staying in the guesthouse for more of a party vibe. WiFi was great in both places. Phillipp couldn't do enough to help and any advice was only a question away. Thanks for a great stay. "
"I had the best holiday. Liquid mountains was exactly what I was after. I'm now a "pro" surfer (meaning I can actually catch a wave unassisted) and found a new love for yoga. All the coaches were fantastic and were above and beyond what I was expecting.The house I stayed in was huge, had excellent kitchen, nice big bedroom and bathroom. Liquid mountains would help in any way possible to ensure I had a great holiday. Highly recommend to anyone new to yoga and/or surfing or if you have experience."
"Overall I recommend this place to anyone and everyone, if your not sure about anything just send them an email. "
