  • Greetings from South Carolina

    "Hola! Suzanne, Just wanted to thank you for inviting us into your home. We had a great time and fell in love with your staff! We especially were attached to Berne and had a good time with him. He has a very welcoming personality and we had fun exchanging our Spanish/English languages with him. Lola was fabulous too! We met several locals that we now consider family and couldn't have asked for better weather. We really appreciated your hospitality...your home is beautiful...your personal touches and artwork were priceless! We enjoyed zip lining, river tours, turtle tours, the food was phenomenal and the people were warm and very genuine. We relaxed by the pool and enjoyed the wildlife mornings and evenings. This is an experience we will never forget and hope we can return one day! Muchas Gracias!"

  • Good House, Excellent Location, Beautiful Beach!

    "Our extended family stayed for a week at Casa Surfside in March 2014. We flew to Liberia & rented a 8-passenger mini-van to cart everyone around. The van allowed freedom to travel anywhere at any time. The 3BR house has everything we needed and it's location is fantastic. The grounds and pool are very well maintained and groomed. The rental house is the upstairs level of the house. The house is directly on the beach!Playa Portrero is beautiful, low key, mellow, un-crowded. The atmosphere is laid-back and tropical. There is some crime, so please be aware. The air conditioning & fans work great to keep the house cool. Bedding and 2 bathrooms are adequate. No complaints there. The interior of the house has some minor issues which did not bother me, but some people are picky. Your beer & cocktails will be chillin' in the fridge & the house comes with a large propane BBQ! You come to Casa Surfside for the pool, beach, and location! We filled up on supplies at the SuperCompro in Huacas (average quality) & at the AutoMercado in Tamrindo (nice supermarket). There are several decent restaurants within a fifteen minute drive. If you want touristy crap, you can always go to Tamarindo for the day! The ocean is cooling to swim in, since it is quite hot during the afternoons. We experienced 1-2 foot waves, which were fun to play in & safer for the kids. The visibility for snorkeling, however, can be quite poor. We brought 3mil wetsuits which we used when we stayed in the water for extended time. We also made a trip to a public beach at Playa Danta to the north, which was very enjoyable....shade trees to picnic on the beach, better visibility for snorkeling. We made several day-long trips in our van. Jorge, the caretaker from downstairs, is happy to arrange day trips & provide recommendations. Here are the highlights of our trip: 1) Zip-lines & monkey holding at the Congo Trail Canopy Tour...awesome fun! 2) Sailing, snorkeling, & lunch on the Lazy Lizard catamaran. Groove to some reggae! The great crew poured endless cocktails & even caught a tuna for sushi! 3) Small eco-Zoo on the highway near Belen. Interesting. Can be visited on the way from the airport. 4) Sugar Plantation Tour and guided River-Boat Tour at Hacienda El Viejo and El Viejo Wetlands. Bring the camera! Lots of wildlife...very enjoyable & historic! 5) Visited the sea-side town of Tamarindo. Went shopping for t-shirts, trinkets, & tourist crap. Had lunch. Went to AutoMercado!"

  • Iguana Blanca is the perfect house for a family holiday in Nosara

    "We found Iguana Blanca to be a perfect place for our family to say 3 weeks in Nosara. The location is ideal, no car needed, easy walking distance to the beach, a handful of restaurants, the pool, and a short bike/tuk tuk ride to get the main "strip". The house is comfortable and practical with kids : child safety gates, lots of extra linens, a beach shower in the garage, comfortable large beds, and a well stocked kitchen. The only issue we had was with the internet which has since been upgraded. Both the owner and the property agent were easy to work with and made every effort to make our stay enjoyable despite some of the "technical" issues we had. I highly recommend this house for your next holiday in Nosara."
