"This by far has been our best family (husband and 8 yr old daughter) vacation! From the moment we arrived it felt like we were home. Bob, Sebastian, and Juan Ro made our stay very comfortable. The driver was supposed to stop at the big grocery store but ended up taking us to the equivalent of a 7-11. When we arrived Bob showed us around the condo (which looks exactly like the pictures) and then took my husband grocery shopping. The location of the condo is directly across from the beach club and about a 5 minute walk to downtown which offers tons of amazing restaurants. The condo itself is clean and well maintained, and very comfortable especially the beds. Juan Ro took us on an incredible tour to Rincon de la Vieja and Sebastian arranged the Estuary tour for us (it wasn't super exciting for an 8 year old unfortunately) and I took surf lessons with Marco who was a great instructor. I also did the surf set fitness class at the gym at Langosta Beach Club which I would highly recommend. We all felt very safe walking the beach and streets of Tamarindo in the evening. I'd say the only downfall was that we couldn't stay here for our entire 2 week vacation as they did not have the condo available for the whole time."

Costa Rican family looking for a great place to rest and enjoy the best beach in Costa Rica, Pelada
"What a wonderful surprise it was to arrive to Casa BandA to find the most beautiful place I've been in Nosara! As soon as you get into the owners property it seems you are at another world, everything is so clean, well kept and quiet. I am a teacher so my search for vacation places is intense trying to find the perfect vacation house to rest and be in a silent place. The apartment rented was pristine, imagine what a task with the dust that arrives every summer in Guanacaste. Another great surprise was to find an excellent kitchen equipped for a pro. I am a good cook and always travel with my kitchen utensils. Never needed at this place because they even had good spices to share with the person that rents the house. The pool one of the cleanest I've seen and with good chairs to sit and read in a very peaceful ambiance. The owner is available at all time in case you need something. All in all, I highly recommend this house for the best vacation ever in Playa Pelada, Nosara, Guanacaste."

"We had a fantastic stay at Casa Holmes with our three 20-something daughters. We have been home a week now and we all wish we had more than 10 nights to stay there. The home is so unique and enough cannot be said about the view. One of our favorite things was the refreshing saltwater infinity pool. It was in the 90’s while we were there and we were constantly taking dips in the pool. With the air conditioning and fans the home stays very cool and comfortable even in 90 degree weather. We would have been happy relaxing at Casa Holmes our entire stay and never leaving the house but since this was our first time in Costa Rica we wanted to make sure and do some exploring as well. As others have stated it is a short walk to the beach and town. We started each morning with a walk into town and definitely got our exercise climbing the driveway on our way back. We rented a 4-wheel drive with GPS and had no problem navigating and getting around. We were very happy we had a 4-wheel drive for some of the dirt roads in the area. We had Rocio of Rocio’s Kitchen Catering prepare two dinners and one brunch for us. The home is so beautiful that we thought it would be a treat to have several meals prepared for us there. Rocio did a fabulous job and cooked delicious meals that we all enjoyed. She even brought table decorations and left everything clean and tidy when she left. We did two different tours with Mainor of “Tours Your Way”. We highly recommend him as well. He structures his private tours based on exactly what you request and takes care of every detail. We thoroughly enjoyed our two days with him and did zip lining, horseback riding, mud baths, hikes to waterfalls, water slides, etc. The owner, Nita, and property managers, Wes and Lisa, were so easy to work with and were always available for questions and suggestions. There were a couple of maintenance requests that arose and they were very promptly taken care of. All in all we loved Casa Holmes and Costa Rica and can’t wait to return."
