Recent Nosara reviews
"A lovely home, well laid out for both privacy and sharing, with three separate units all opening onto a communal pool and patio area. We were a family group of five adults and it was a perfect layout for us. We enjoyed breakfasts together at the poolside, Cuba Libres on the patio in the evening, and visits from iguanas and interesting birds in the jungle setting all around - a family of howler monkeys was spotted while walking back to the house. It is a very peaceful haven, with no stress, only relaxation. The path from the house to beautiful Playa Guiones was a bit muddy due to rainy season, but we only had one torrential downpour during our stay - take a torch and a raincoat. The beach is phenomenal and mostly empty! We tried many restaurants, some walkable, but our favourite for value and live music was El Chivo Mexican restaurant on the way to Playa Pelada, and our favourite for setting (and amazing ceviche) was la Luna at Playa Pelada, where the beach is small but pretty and safe. We need to go back to visit Secret Spot gelateria!! The roads around Nosara are all unpaved, so the best and cheapest way to get around is to hire a quad and you'll have so much fun - we were always getting lost as signposts are a bit of a joke, but there is a grid and you generally end up back in a recognisable place! We wished we had more time to explore more but we certainly fell in love with Nosara. We were a bit paranoid about potential theft and had some issues with the house locks, but Dain was very responsive in getting those fixed. Very many thanks for sharing your home with us Adrianne. I hope we can return."

"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!"

"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."

"We have been back from Nosara for a couple of weeks now and all we can think about is when are we going back. We loved Casa Murray it really is the best view up in the Las Huacas area. We debated whether we wanted to be close to the beach or look at it. It was no mistake to take the view. Its just a short drive down to Guiones and to be able to relax by the pool and look at the view was AMAZING! It was me, my husband, 5 year old daughter and Mom. My Mom had her own space downstairs and was very comfortable. We were barely inside (even though its very comfortable). It really is the outdoor space that makes this place. Kitchen was awesome fully equipped. We made breakfast and lunch almost everyday and then went out for dinners. So many amazing spots to eat in Nosara. You really can't go wrong. Our favs were La Luna (on the beach awesome sunsets), Gilded Iguana, Kaya Sol, Beach Dog Cafe (now open for dinner), Burgers and Beers (connected is also sushi), Le Creperie, El Chivo (mexican), Seekrat Spot (ice cream) and Harmony Hotel for smoothies, juices and fantastic drinks and meals. I highly recommend Nosara for all the fun activities too. Agua Tibia has a great kids surf camp, we also used Surfing Nosara for lessons, Miss Sky for zip line and spent a lot of time at the Yoga Institute and Harmony Hotel for drop in yoga classes. Robert was very responsive when we made our last minute reservation and he has great staff that will take care of you while you're there. The maid comes a little too frequently for us but, how can I complain about someone cleaning up after us right? Thanks so much Robert loved your place."
