Recent Nosara reviews
"My husband, 8 month old and I just returned from spending 3 weeks in Costa Rica at this perfect character home just a few minutes walk from the beach. It was one of the best vacations we've ever had. The house was absolutely perfect for us. It offers a great shaded outdoor patio and sitting area (great for cocktail hour with friends!) and a gorgeous pool with a waterfall and lots of shade for our little one. The home also came fully equipped with a fully functional kitchen (including all necessary utensils and needs), plenty of towels (GOOD beach/pool towels!), laundry room and air conditioned bedrooms. I also loved that the bedrooms came with mosquito nets which gave me peace of mind for my sleeping 8 month old. Unfortunately, like many places, Costa Rica suffers from petty theft but we felt very secure with the 24 hour security gate and guards. The owners and local property managers were incredibly responsive and went out of their way to ensure us a comfortable stay. Another highlight of the house was it's incredible proximity to the beach. Every day we would pack a bag and a cooler and walk down the short path to the beach to watch the sunset to cap off the perfect day. There are no homes directly on the beach in Playa Guiones and I have to say that the houses in the Beach Club have one of the quickest access points to the beach! It is also super close to all the fabulous restaurants which we frequented almost every night. All in all, I would highly recommend this rental to anyone and everyone!"

Perfect Family Vacation Home in Beautiful Laid-Back Nosara
"Casa Cristal de Mar was perfect for our vacation in every way - it could not have been in a better location as we had surf lessons at Safari Surf School on Playa Guiones every day and was a short walk to everything we needed. We loved watching the monkeys visit the big tree by the garage and the iguanas roam the property. The home and grounds are very clean and well maintained. We felt safe and secure at this property. The outdoor kitchen and bar made for a laid-back experience. We stayed with another family and there was more space than we needed. Our kids loved the pool, ping pong table and ring toss game at the Rancho. Rebeca was wonderful and answered every question we had. It will go down as one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever had!"

"We had a wonderful, relaxing time in a beautiful oasis in a jungle. If you can imagine a Hollywood film star going to a resort in Costa Rica, this is it! Listening to the unusual birds in the morning was magical, and the chirping (quietly) geckos at night. We walked down to the beach at Playa Pelada; it was scenic with rock outcrops, uncrowded, and plenty of sand for sunbathing. We enjoyed watching the terns, pelicans, egrets, osprey, and frigatebirds diving for fish.
Don't miss visiting Lagarta Restaurant just down the road from Casa-Banda. The view of Rio Nosara, estuary, and shoreline is incredible and very romantic!
Bibi and Arne are wonderful hosts and a wealth of knowledge. We enjoyed hearing many great stories about their lives in Costa Rica. We hope to return again!"

"This was a wonderful home to rent while we visited Nosara! Just a drive away from local restaurants, and the beautiful beach! Our family enjoyed sitting by the pool relaxing and listening to all the rainforest sounds! Would highly recommend!"
