Casa Dos Cocos - Excellent!
Casa Dos Cocos - Excellent!
We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Dos Cocos. Plenty of room for the family, and a great location - close to town, the beach and good waves, yet very private. Even though we rented a car, it was nice to be able to walk to restaurants and a small grocery store. The house was clean and nicely appointed, and the view from the pool is spectacular. We like to have the option of preparing some meals, and having a nice kitchen was great. Rick is very knowledgeable about the area, and suggested some things that we now consider to be "don't miss" activities - Miss Sky Zip Line, turtle viewing at Ostional, and staying in the lodge at the Monte Verde Cloud Forest. Monte Verde was spectacular, and the people and guides are really nice. The last 45 minutes of the drive there was a bit tedious, but so worth it! In Nosara, don't miss the pancakes or gallo pinto and eggs at Rosi's, or the fresh fish at Rancho Tico, and the kids liked that we could walk to the bagel shop - not necessarily Costa Rican food, but good nonetheless. We have been going to CR for 25 years, and Dos Cocos was by far the most enjoyable place to stay, I would recommend it highly. This was our first trip in the "rainy season", and we may switch and only visit during this time of the year. The rain was a welcome change, and sporadic, so it wasn't an inconvenience, and the countryside was beautiful. We rented a 4x4 since we didn't know what to expect from the rains, but it wasn't necessary. The surf in the rainy season doesn't benefit from the dry season prevailing offshore winds, but we had plenty of swell and often glassy conditions. Thanks Rick!

Casa Dos Cocos Vacation
Casa Dos Cocos Vacation
We stayed at Rick and Ally’s place for a week in August. What a fantastic week it was….non-stop fun and never a dull moment in the jungles of Costa Rica. Rick took us everywhere: Nicoya, Nosara, Playa Guiones, Playa Garza, Ostional, fishing, turtles, beach combing, surfing, and to some great local restaurants…. Ranch Tico, Rosi’s, and Marlin Bills. We also enjoyed the fabulous “made from scratch” coconut and passion fruit gelato at Gelateria Italiana We stopped in the middle of the road to watch the howler monkeys hanging from trees. Sat on the back deck in the morning and listened to the canaries, parakeets, hummingbirds, and magpies sing their songs. Took the local river safari tour and learned about the local flora and fauna. Enjoyed watching the lizards, land crabs, fish, tiger heron, crocodiles, iguanas, and numerous other bird species in the natural habitat. Went off shore fishing with Juan, on the boat Cowboy, and saw whales (Mama Whale and her baby), turtles, magnificent giant rays flipping out of the water….and the best ……… my wife and I both caught sailfish! What a fishing experience! Rick is very knowledgeable about the area, as he has been down there for over 10 years, speaks the language and knows everybody that can make your trip enjoyable. What a beautiful house…. only blocks from a gorgeous pacific beach, swim up bar in the pool, and great views of the sunset. Ally is also a travel agent specializing in Coast Rican tours. She can help you with your travel plans to the area! We cannot wait to return again next year, as we have travelled to many tropical and beach destinations and this is by far the best of the best! Hats off to Rick and Ally and many thanks for making this a lifetime vacation spot with many memories to treasure. Garner & Debbie

Year Purchased: 2010
About the owner: I grew up as a military brat in the USMC and have travelled extensively in my 57 years. I first came to Playa Guiones to surf in 1989. I talked my wife, Ally, into making the leap of faith to live here in 2003. We both left lucrative careers in Austin, Texas for something different. We have a new and obviously 'off the beaten path' lifestyle here now, but I would not trade it for the world. Ally is now working for a travel agency based in Austin that specializes in Costa Rica and between the two of us feel we know quite a bit about the country and what it has to offer. We bring this knowledge to our house rental to help traveller's find what they need to make their vacation trip memorable.
Why the Owner Chose Nosara:
Casa Dos Cocos is located in a gated community as close to the beach as law allows. The entire beach of Playa Guiones is considered a wildlife refuge with a 200 meter barrier to construction (with only a handfull of exceptions!) from the high tide mark. We are 300 steps from the front gate to the sand!
