"Villa Sonita is perfect! Everything was just as expected and better! Rebecca, the manager was a delight! She arranged our shuttle from Liberia to house and once there we just rented Quads from Monkey quads for our transportation for the week! We had a mixed group of 13 and had plenty of space, and plenty to do. Woke up in the morning with coffee and howler monkeys by the pool and the sound of the ocean waves. Truly paradise! We would walk to different places or ride quads, we saw the playa Guiones beach and the black beach at playa Octinol. One of our favorite spots to eat or get a margarita was beach dog cafe, just a short walk on the way to playa Guiones or a fun quad ride. :) We are definitely going back to Nosara and would love to stay in Villa Sonita again~"

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."

"This is an incredible home, in an incredible setting, with outstanding access to the beach, one of the only Tico owned Surf Shops: Aqua Tibia. The home itself was very clean when we arrived, immaculately maintained throughout our stay and the perfect place to relax and decompress. The house consists of three (3) separate and living units that all share a common backyard, pool, and dinner table! We worked with the Property Manager Kim who hooked us up with the best cook. After our dawn patrol surf session we would come back to the Villa with a warm delicious Tico breakfast which we enjoyed in the outdoor dining area listening to howler monkeys and other wildlife this area offers! We loved the Ceviche at Beach Dog Cafe (walking distance), the service and sustainable food at the Harmony, pretty much everything at La Luna. If you like to surf, or are Day One folks (like myself), the team at Aqua Tibia Surf Shop will take care of you they are a great group of guys who are awesome teachers! Since we were surfing 2-3x a day we had to get a massage so off to Tica Massage Studio! There massages energized us for the next surf sessions.
Adrian at Agua Tibia hooked us up with a Zip Line Canopy tour over the jungle which was one of the most AWESOME experiences of our lives.
If that is not enough a 10 minute walk to the famous Nosara Yoga institute through back streets and up into the trees where you can take Yoga classes on top of the trees (literaly a platform on the trees!)
This trip and home definitely exceed oyr expectations! The photos are very accurate depictions - but it does not capture the feelings of bliss and calmness that descend as soon you as walk on to the property. Palm trees and the jungle surround you as you take a dip in the pool(which is always, miraculously, the perfect temperature).
A couple of things to note bring cash this area is more remote and Costa Rican money is the way to pay for things. Also, if planning to eat in purchase groceries before getting there as the prices are much higher."

"Just finished our second visit to Barefoot Villa. Once again, it was AWESOME! The facilities, house, the home cooked meals from a terrific local woman, the personal help of the owners, and of course the incredible country of Costa Rica and Nosara make it a terrific place to vacation. A very special place and we will be returning. Highly recommend renting ATV's/quads and the Ms Sky canopy tour. Both great fun!! Very reasonable too in my opinion!:)"
