Perfect jungle oasis
"Heartwaves 2 proved the perfect homebase for a group of five of us (two couples and one single person) who were in Nosara for a too-short trip. Jane was very responsive from the start and continued to be throughout the booking process, arrival, and our stay. The house itself is beautiful -- the perfect size for the five of us with ample patio space, plenty of room to doze off in the shade or sun in the afternoon, a pool in which to cool off, a grill for cooking dinner and dining outside. Though not in the heart of the small town of Nosara, everything was easily within walking distance, and access to the beach is especially close (five-minute walk or so). This all served to make us feel like we were truly away from it all - but there is nothing inconvenient about the location. Everything in the house is in perfect working order, including air conditioning, kitchen, security system. The kitchen is particularly well-stocked if you're the type to cook. And Jane, in addition to being so helpful and responsive, is also so lovely. When I go back to Nosara, I will absolutely try again to stay at Heartwaves."

"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."

"We fully agree with all the previous positive reviews, so will not repeat them. A couple of small hiccups during our stay - wi-fi was limited to the pool area, we had several hours without power, and no water for half a day (thus 4 stars, not 5), but we still plan to return when we can. It's a great location, pleasant people, and all in all a very enjoyable vacation experience."

"We have traveled extensively through Costa Rica and have now found our favorite place in Nosara/Playa Guiones: Casa Radl! This property has it all. It is safe, which is an absolute MUST in Costa Rica, it is right by the beach, it is reasonably priced considering it sleeps up to 12 people, it has a huge pool with an outdoor lounge/kitchen/dining set up for a large group, there are bicycles provided to get around, the housekeeper and gardener are loyal and so helpful and one feels secluded even though the walk to local restaurants, markets and shops is a short one. Casa Radl is the perfect retreat for anyone who enjoys tropical living."
