Recent Nosara reviews

  • A wonderful vacation home but not for everyone

    "We spent a lovely relaxing week in this villa with our 3 adult children. The magnificent view from the pool & terrace area is breath taking. The property is well equipped, well maintained and very spacious but has obviously been well used e.g the towels were quite old and it would have been useful had there been different ones for pool and house use. Some of the glass ware had also seen better days. There is excellent WIFI reception. The house is situated on the hillside with magnificent views overlooking Playa Guiones far below and is cool and airy during the heat of the day. It is reached via a long driveway through the trees ; while we were there none of the neighbouring properties (the closest of which was about 100 metres away) were occupied adding to the sense of isolation. I found this together with the security measures (there is no alarm) rather unnerving. Although there were grills and bars on all of the external windows and doors many of the doors themselves were unlocked which seemed a little strange. We raised this with both the lovely maid and property manager who seemed unconcerned. I would have been very unhappy at the property had my children been younger. The large master suite is on the same level as the kitchen and both internal and external living spaces while the other two bedrooms and bathrooms are accessed via a long outside staircase at the bottom of which is a metal door that has to be separately locked. I also don't think that the pool terrace would be particularly safe for very young children. It was wonderful to wake in the morning to the sound of the troop of howler monkeys crossing the property and to watch the amazing variety of birds ( including vultures that came to drink in the pool !)After 10 days travelling throughout Costa Rica all we really wanted to do while in Nosara was to relax at either the house or the beach and the house was perfect for this. A car preferably a 4WD is essential as the house is a good 5 min drive from the village where there are a number of very good places to eat. The owner was very pleasant and efficient to deal with. Once I had overcome my nervousness during the night time we had a fantastic stay in this lovely property."

  • Awesome location and it has all we needed

    "I had such a great time, I truly didn't wanted to come back. Of all the South/Central American countries I have visited Costa Rica is my favorite. The ocean is magnificent and the people so friendly. Surfing was a blast, every day great waves. We started using the two boards you left in the cottage to test the waters and then rented boards from "Agua Tibia" for a few days. Weather was great, only one day rained and we took it easy and waited for the rain to pass then back to the water. Love the location of your cottage and it has all what we needed to be comfy. Secluded yet within walking distance from everything. I made friends with the neighbors, the coconut lady, surf shop guys and the two guys who sell coffee cups at the beach. We went to the local supermarket (playa pelada) and bought our groceries there. People at the super were friendly and happy to see us and help us. I think we saved money by cooking at the cottage as the local restaurants are really expensive. I went to a coffee tour up in the mountains (Hojancha), totally worth the drive and got up at 5am every morning to watch the 12 or so monkeys travel to the tree behind your cottage. Check out went on without any issues, Virginie was helpful and friendly. I tried to avoid organico as his prices were stupid high ($6 for a quarter gallon of milk) and there are another 4 little markets like him around the area and charge a fraction of the price. I will be back for sure."

  • Wonderful vacation home on a beautiful beach.

    "We fully agree with all the previous positive reviews, so will not repeat them. A couple of small hiccups during our stay - wi-fi was limited to the pool area, we had several hours without power, and no water for half a day (thus 4 stars, not 5), but we still plan to return when we can. It's a great location, pleasant people, and all in all a very enjoyable vacation experience."

  • Great Spot!

    "Great spot just a quick five minute walk to Guiones. Very clean. Great outdoor living. Quiet at night. Perfect for large families or multiple families. We had 11 total and were very comfortable. I would absolutely recommend."
