Location & View
STELLAR LOCATION! RARE OCEAN FRONT & OCEAN VIEW. STEPS FROM PACIFIC & TRUE WALK TO ALL LOCATION Location is key in Guiones. Where your rental is located will make or breaks your stay and is the difference between hot & tired or refreshed in the shade & ready to explore. We're one of the only rentals truly on Playa Guiones. MAP YOUR GUIONES RENTAL BEFORE BOOKING ---No matter where you rent know your exactly location & distance to beach and services. Sadly, many rentals say 'about 10 minutes' in error or give poor info. If location is vague it's NOT the place for you! AVOID DEHYRATION/SUNSTROKE : Dehyration & sunstroke do happen to kids and surfers hauling boards from outlying neighborhoods. At our location kids hit the beach IN ABOUT ONE MINUTE, then come back to dip in the pool and play under shaded outdoor areas. They walk to nearby spots for lunch or treats and get another beach visit late afternoon. ...moreless

I stayed here for just about a week with two girlfriends. The villas are about a three minute walk to the ocean along a lovely beach path. We had the most incredible time learning to surf and soaking up some much needed sun. Our hosts were the sweetest, most charming and accomodating people. They went out of their way to make sure we had an amazing trip, even giving us a couple of lifts into town on their ATV to attend yoga classes and buy plane tickets for the next leg of our adventure in Costa Rica. The villas are a short walk from a few great restaurants / bars and a little grocery store where you can stock up on sundries like suntan lotion, fruit, snacks, larger grocery items and booze. The villas are private enough though, that you really feel like you're in your own special hideaway. The suite we stayed in had a small kitchen equipped with stove, fridge and cooking / eating utensils. We chose to eat out most of the time, opting for all the fresh fruit plates, smoothies, comidas and other delicious local fair available - but it was nice to be able to prepare the occasional snack or cocktail in our own kitchen. The furnishings were simple but comfortable. The room had an air conditioner and a fan. There was a small pool surrounded by chez chairs for lounging and the villas attracted a good mix of likeable fellow travelers. The real highlights are the proximity to the beach and the wonderful couple who run the establishment.

Perfect location! 3 minute walk to the beach, a pool to jump in to cool off, and a mini supermarket 5 minutes away. It's also nice because its tucked back from the street and adds the sense of privacy. The rooms are cozy with lots of shelves and a full kitchen.

Wow! we really had a good time in Playa Guiones!! Megan and Jean-Baptiste were the best host and they were always available to help us green goes out with all our needs. We could not have found a better spot in all of playa Guiones. The pool was perfect, after coming off the beach and the out door bbq area worked out well. Just an all around great beach/area to stay.... Feel free to email me for direction on your costa rica trip. We have been twice now and love it!

We've been staying at Nosara Beach Villas for more than ten years - returning year after year for the relaxed setting, the short walk to the beach and the pleasant surroundings. We've recommended it to families who want to relax, those who want to explore Costa Rica's beauty and those who want to experience Costa Rica's adventure sports. All that have taken our recommendation have returned with praises for Nosara Beach Villa. We've been traveling to Costa Rica annually since the early 1990's and Nosara Beach Villas is our best find yet.

"What a great place to stay! Megan and Jibe treated me like family, and I loved being able to walk right onto the beach. The little path across the dune reminded me of New England, except the water is actually warm here! I look forward to my next stay here."

Amy gave us the following feed back about her family's visit to Villa 2. Amy is the author of "Chasing Waves, A surfer's tale of obsessive wandering"......... http://www.amazon.com/Chasing-Waves-Surfers-Obsessive-Wandering/dp/1594851131 "With a 2 minute walk to the beach via private path, a lovely garden-shaded pool, hammocks, and jean-batiste's excellent breakfast and megan's warm hospitality, this was an ideal spot for a surf vacation. We had great surf with nice off-shores plus Megan and Jibe rent beach-cruiser bikes for a steal that we used to get around to the Mini Super or town or Pelada for dinner. Our 2 1/2 yr old loved playing in the pool and Villa #2 had plenty of space for her plus myself and husband, there was even a nice little board storage space just inside the room, which is great so we never worried about them. The inside is basic but comfortable, enough for a good sleep or making a snack, otherwise we lounged by the pool or napped in hammocks or surfed, surfed, surfed. A great vacation!" Thanks Amy!

About the owner: Pura Vida vibe abounds! We love Costa Rica and can share our knowledge of the area with you. We respect our guests privacy and have created a nice atmosphere for fun and relaxation. Propery is a spacious jungle filled 1/2 acre. Units are situated for privacy with ample room for all of our guests.
Why the Owner Chose Nosara:
Being on the beach was the goal. We wanted to create a MEXICAN VILLA as found on the west coast of Mexico, in Costa Careyes and found this jewel in Playa Guiones. The villa 1 and Villa 2 were built from the inspirations of the open air villas and modified slightly for our costa rica climate. We appreciate that the area is a vibrant, healthy active community that's also family and kid friendly. Their is an excellent quality of life here. We love the undeveloped natural feel and seeing a new critter everyday, walking down the beach path through protected turtle preserve. The area is remote and has a unique flavor. Guiones is a place to unwind and enjoy the art of living. The perfect elements combine for the good life! Warm ocean, great surf, rural character, community of ex-pats committed to responsible growth for future residents and kids and the local Ticos who graciously welcome us to their country. Opportunity for health and wellness abound. The beautiful Northwest Pacific Coast has the most consistent surf break in the country. This is a great place to be active, work on a self directed project, or just be in appreciation of natural abundance.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Your day is spent against the background rhythm and backdrop of the rugged coasts of the Pacific ocean.......this is a place of true tranquility yet steps from the places guests desire to visit in our area. Even if you have a car, you might not use it! Established area, area properties with large lots which means tranquility and privacy is a quiet refuge where you can truly relax. There's something for everyone. Mom can go to yoga, kids have a safe outdoor play area with big shady pool, all can surf until you can't stand up. The refuge vegetation zone, called the 'maritime area,' gives the area a wonderful feeling of nature and seclusion and its all that separates our half acre from the Pacific Ocean surf. We're a special place, guests say it's their most relaxing vacation yet! Wake up to the morning sound of howler monkeys, the orchestral singing of colorful birds, the rustle of brilliant orange Sally Lightfoot crabs. Enjoy abundant nature. Be in awe of our prolific, vegetation thriving in the sultry equatorial climate. Walk around the corner to popular night spots Kaya Sol Lounge and The Gilded Iguana. Savor authentic Thai, or grocery items at the mini super Las Delicias del Mundo. . Take a horse ride you will never forget -- tour guides ride down our drive way and greet you right at your residence. Private compound, is your secret spot. Located in the most coveted neighborhood, the 'G' section of Guiones, a residential area on a quiet street easily accessible to main road yet with little traffic. People find us by asking, ' you know...that house that is practically ON Playa Guiones.' They arrive in Guiones and say THAT'S where I am staying next year!
