  • Amazing location for an authentic Costa Rica beach experience

    "Our family of 12 (6 kids aged between 13 and 7, 3 couples) spent Christmas at Playa Garza. The house was perfect for our needs: comfortable, friendly, a great beachfront garden with outdoor shower and unique direct access to a beautiful beach. I was nervous about the sleeping arrangements but it worked out perfectly: 4 girls slept in a room with 2 queen beds, the 2 boys slept on bunks adjacents to the living room, and then there were 3 rooms for the couples that included the owner’s apartment which had a balcony, TV, fabulous view of the ocean. The house has a lot of character, it is nicely decorated and is well appointed for cooking, and feeling at home. The bathrooms worked well, there was hot water, and were very nicely finished (2 full baths in the main house that we were sharing among 2 families of 5, and the apartment had its own bathroom). Eliza and Greta the housekeepers were unbelievably helpful (I speak a bit of spanish), kept the house clean, prepared us some lunch and dinners and even prepared fish that my sister in law caught earlier in the day with Eliza's brother. Before we arrived Ginger did the groceries for us, it is important to specify sizes as most items are purchased in large size. We did not run out of food! It was awesome, no shopping while we were there. The location of the house is in the center of Garza, a fishing village of 100 people. The main road is right by the entrance and there are neighbors and ambient village noises. Across the street there is a small corner store, a church, a bar and a little place where you can get Vitamix made juices. So it was the real Costa Rican village experience, we loved it, we were not looking for seclusion in a golf course. A 10 minutes drive away from there was the Nosara Yoga Institute, surfing at Playa Guyones with Agua Tibias (these guys took all 10 of us surfing everyday), zip lining with Miss Skynopy, and the exceptional Nosara Monkey Refuge (you need an appointment to see baby monkeys rescued by Brenda Bombard). Amazing, amazing vacation. To top it all, Ginger coordinated for us fireworks on Christmas day -- the most beautiful fireworks on the beach!"

  • Perfect getaway house!

    "Our group of 4 adults had an amazing week at this house in Nosara. We walked to the beach daily, rented surfboards from one of the local surf shops, walked to the yoga institute a couple days, went fishing out of the next village over in Garza, went ziplining with the Miss Sky group, and would always finish everyday just hanging in and around the pool. Gosh, I really miss sitting in those rocking chairs. I could've probably slept there each night. The best part of the house was that you can completely open up the back wall to look over the infiniti pool and out into the jungle. The monkeys would be playing and eating in the trees around dinner time so you can be inside eating at the table or just rocking away but still feel like your outside. The house is located up on a hill so you get this amazing breeze throughout the entire place so you really didn't even need the AC. We turned it on only when we went to sleep. Other details we loved about the house was that everything was very clean, wifi worked great, and security was of no concern. Also, the property manager Tiffany was so nice to work with to get directions, information, anything you wanted or needed. We only ate out a couple meals since my husband is a chef but the best thing was that the kitchen was fully stocked with everything we needed. He really appreciated that. While he cooked, I played bartender and again we had everything we needed from lots of glasses to a blender to make some icy, cold drinks. Now this was our 2nd time to Nosara so we knew the Section K neighborhood but didn't rent this house before. We would certainly rent this house again if available. THANK YOU!!!"

  • Luxury in Paradise

    "Spent 3 nights with girlfriends at Micki and Don's breathtaking resort! The attention to details, stunning infinity edge pool overlooking the gorgeous ocean views make this "heaven on earth." Micki and Don's warmth and hospitality just add to this amazing place! We were all so enthralled with our accommodations, we barely left during our 3 nights. You can do lots or like us you can choose to just enjoy, enjoy this magical slice of Pura Vida! I plan on going back soon! Thank you Micki and Don for making us feel so welcome in your piece of paradise. Will be back soon with my hubby!"

  • Exceptional Vacation

    "Best spot in Nosara. After spending the day all over town: 4-wheeling up the mountain side to see amazing views, kayaking in the mangroves, surfing and eating at Guinoes, coming "home" was a special treat. The pictures here, though beautiful, only provide a tiny sample of the magnificence therein.The views are breathtaking and awesome, giving sight to the ocean, two rivers, and the mountains beyond. Just an amazing spot, and the home itself is absolutely beatuiful and all one could want in a vacation rental, complete with infinity pool from which to watch the sunsets. Carl and Cathy were more than hosts, they became friends while we were living beneath them. They were there as much or as little as we wanted them to be, they answered all of our questions, helped us schedule our excursions, just perfect and companionable hosts. We couldn't have hoped for better, which became our mantra while in Nosara. Every day, every sight, every adventure exceeded our expectations. Must haves: a car or quad to get around the winding dirt roads of Nosara (it's about a 10 minute drive to surf at Guinoes beach, or a short walk through the jungle path to Playa Pelada), a sense of adventure- this is not your cushy resort town, and an open heart because the people of Costa Rica will surely invade it. Must nots: don't overpack! All you need are bathing suits, simple sundresses, shorts and tank tops (even when going out to eat), and a pair of crocs or flip-flops, preferrably crocs due to the rocky, dusty roads and wet environment. That's it, period. No hair dryer, no makeup, no jewelry....pura vida. Best vacation ever. Hands down. Loved the location, loved the people, loved the views, loved the surf, loved the food; there's as much or as little to do as you want. We will definitely go back asap and will even try a yoga class next time!"

Nosara Travel Tips

Northwest Central America at Nosara Beach Rentals

For a trip into Central America, consider the Guanacaste Province of Costa Rica by renting Nosara beach rentals. Norsara, Costa Rica is located in the Nicoya Canton in the northwest. These Nosara resorts offer a little something for everyone on vacations in Costa Rica. Development of the beach is almost non-existent due to the Ostional Wildlife Refuge.

Ostional Wildlife Refuge near Nosara Resorts

The Ostional Wildlife Refuge was constructed to protect Olive Ridley and Leatherback sea turtle breeding ground. Vacations in Costa Rica can be limited during breeding season with beach closures, but do not worry as there are still plenty of places for surfing or other water sports along the beaches of Guanacaste Province. Nosara resorts can help you set up a scuba diving adventure that leaves from a marina rather than the beach, so that the turtles can remain undisturbed. Fishing tours are also available when you stay at Nosara beach rentals.

Vacations in Costa Rica for Yoga Enthusiasts

Vacations in Costa Rica to Nosara will put you in the heart of yoga education. One of the most famous yoga schools is located in Nosara, just a few minutes from Nosara resorts. Think about waking up to the sunrise in the east, as you sit on the beach facing the Pacific Ocean for your yoga workout.

Handicrafts of Nosara Beach Rentals

Downtown Nosara is a great place to spend the day for anyone who loves to shop. In the town, you have the market, pharmacy, churches, school, library, and many historical buildings. For those who love to shop, the market or retail shops that sell trinkets to remember Costa Rica are available. Bring home handicrafts, woven rugs, or tee-shirts to remember your time spent at Nosara beach rentals. Once you have gotten in all the shopping at the market you could want, head back to your accommodations for a home-cooked meal with fresh fruits and vegetables.
