"We just got back from 5 nights at Casita Louisa and cannot say enough good things about it. It's in a great location, you can walk or drive to the beach. Great restaurants in the area, so you don't have to go far. The house is fully equipped with everything you need. The pool is huge and was fantastic to have. The house is secure and the owners have made sure all the windows have bars, it has the safe room where you can store all your valuables and the pull down gate, which secures the front door. Master bedroom has a large king size bed, quite firm but we slept great. You do have to run the fans, along with AC at night as it gets quite hot.
We really enjoyed our stay there and would go back in a heartbeat!"

"We spent 4 weeks in the sun enjoying the local Nosara food, people, and two stunning beaches and sightseeing up and down the coast and central Costa Rica. Casa Ventana is ideally located between the touristy area and the local downtown providing a mix of all we wanted to do. We loved listening to the Howler monkies while drinking coffee on the porch early in the mornings and again while drinking martinis on the porch late afternoon. We would recommend renting a car at the airport but be prepared for the inescapable, high rental insurance costs."

"El Sueno de Mariana is a very private home yet, because the hosts live on site, it's priced reasonably as an apartment rental. This amazing home is perched at the top of a small mountain just above the surf town of Nosara, Costa Rica. Although the roads are a bit bumpy, to say the least, it's an easy drive from the Nosara airport and to the town and local beaches. Safety was never a concern for us as El Sueno de Mariana has an electric gate and is situated in a private neighborhood. Down the road a bit is a security guard who monitors traffic heading in and out of the neighborhood. During the day we enjoyed the spacious, sandy beaches around Nosara and in the early mornings and evening enjoyed our privacy at the house with gorgeous views, lush gardens, an infinity pool and the amazing sounds of jungle life.
The property has incredible views of the Pacific ocean framed by beautiful gardens with native trees, plants and flowers. I have to say, as other guests did, the photos don't do the property justice. It has one of the most beautiful infinity pools we've ever had the privilege to enjoy! The pool has a waterfall, lap lane and mosaic turtles on the bottom. Be sure and watch the video which highlights the surrounding gardens and views.
The bedrooms, each with their own bathroom, are spacious, clean and air conditioned and have all the amenities one needs for vacation.
Our hosts, Mikki and Don, are warm, easy going and have great tips on what to see and do in Nosara. They really tune into their guests preferences and if privacy is what you're looking for, you can bet you will have it here. We, however, enjoyed playing cribbage with them and I highly recommend Mikki's informal water aerobics class on site!
We brought our 3 daughters (all in their 20s) and 2 boyfriends and had plenty of room. No matter what your age you will feel right at home at El Sueno de Mariana.
Many thanks Mikki and Don for a fabulous stay! We hope to come back again."

"We loved our week long stay here! It is a beautiful and comfortable little villa with just about everything you could need. We had a car rental, however many things, e.g. beach, yoga, store, and some restaurants, are also within walking distance. The house manager was great in taking care of things. The little dipping pool, patio, and outdoor speakers (bring your own ipod--this plugs into the audio cord, which is plugged into the bluetooth, or some other bluetooth enabled device) were so nice we enjoyed our own yoga practice daily. It was amazing and I would definitely stay here again if I was in Nosara!"
