  • Hidden Gem in Paradise

    "I am a seasoned traveler, having stayed at many resorts, hotels, private rentals, etc. all over the world for both business and pleasure. We traveled to Barefoot Villa on October 27th, with my wife, daughter and her two university girlfriends for a period of 1 week. We found BV to be everything it was described as, and more. It is set on a dead end road surrounded by lush green trees and flora native to the region, tranquil and quiet, conveniently located close to town and spectacular Guiones Beach. We were treated to the marvelous cooking of Nina; 3 healthy locally inspired meals a day, with fresh meats we purchased at the pescaderia (fish market), and local general market nearby. Everything else was provided prior to our arrival for off the shelf value plus a 20% service fee. Well worth the price and reasonable daily rate (we saved a small fortune by avoiding the restaurant option). We also procured the cleaning services of Laura 3 times during the week (one was included with the rental), which again was well worth the modest rate. Both ladies were well tipped for their awesome efforts. The house itself was spectacular; elegant and practical, with abundant space for the five of us. Angie has taken great care of ensuring all instructions, tips, local contacts, and everyday living details are carefully documented and accessible. We felt at home right away, and comfortably secure with the comprehensive yet easy to use security system. Our method of transportation was private shuttle from and to Liberia Airport, and 2 ATVs rented from David at Harbor Reef Hotel for local daily outings. This provided us with amazing opportunities to get to know the local area and beyond, without having to necessarily stay on the main roads. Angie has negotiated a discount with David's Guiones Beach Gear which made the ATV rentals very reasonable and far cheaper than a local car rental. Barefoot Villa also offers 3 bikes, 2 surfboards and a couple of boogie boards which were well used every day. All in all I would rate Barefoot Villa as one of our very top vacation rentals, in a spectacular and so far secluded region of amazing Costa Rica. We will be going back! I am happy to provide a personal reference, you can get my contact information from Angie."

  • The Best of Both Worlds

    "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."

  • Lovely peaceful place

    "Great little townhouse in beautiful garden with nice pool. The condo had excellent air conditioning (necessary in April!), a lovely patio and simple but nice decor. A few things need repair, such as random holes in the wall and noisy toilets. But that said, it's overall a wonderful clean option at an affordable price and in a great location: very close to the south entrance of the beach and the yoga Institute with its wonderful juice bar and great yoga classes. The kitchen was perfect. We loved that it felt safe too. Also Francinny is especially helpful and nice - so responsive and a wonderful resource. She recommended restaurants for us that were incredible, eg., La Luna. We loved our time in Nosara!"

  • Perfect House and Location

    "Dear Dave, Thanks so much! We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Four Winds Villas and are already planning our return. We have stayed in numerous houses in Guiones over the years and I can honestly say this was our favorite. The interior was exceptionally clean and so comfortable. Upon our arrival it only took minutes to get into that laid-back Nosara groove! The pool was a perfect reprieve from the mid-day heat and we couldn't get our 10 year old out of it! This was our first trip where water pressure/availability was no issue - nice job with the back up system. We were pleasantly surprised by the short walk to the beach via the back yard cut-through path. Even while lugging my gigantic surfboard the 5 minute walk was a breeze! Thanks again and we can't wait to return. Mark, Sam & Micky"
