  • 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."

  • Perfect Setting, Home, and Owners

    "Our rental home was perfect for us. Two bedrooms. We had the girls use the master bedroom because of the extra futons. Both bedrooms had decks, bathrooms, showers, and ACs, which we did use at night. The first night I thought someone was moving furniture in the house, but it was the male howler monkeys making their presence known. They sound like gorillas!! Soooo cute though. Downstairs is spacious with a big dining room table, a living room, and fully supplied kitchen. There was a kitchen bar with two stools. Internet and country phone service was provided by the owner. Internet service was unpredictable. At times, we borrowed the wifi signal from the condos next door but that was spotty as well. I didn't care but my wife and one daughter were frustrated. If Internet or texting is important to you, then it may be worth researching options with your cellular company. I was looking forward to disconnecting from the world, so I did.........except for the occasional Facebook post or sports update. The house is very secured with multiple locks, a fence, security system, and neighboring security guard for condo association, which is where you have pool access. What a nice pool as there is shade and fresh water when you need a break from the beach. I awoke around 600am every morning out of habit. My daughter and I would take a run on the beach or on the roads. The house is a 1 minute walk to the Pelada beach, which is quiet, beautiful and with big waves. Great boogie boarding. Some surfing but there is a lot more surfing on the next beach, to the south, Guiones, which is more than a mile long and has a lot of action going on compared to Pelada beach. There is short trail to connect the two beaches. Groceries. We opted to eat out almost all meals. In hind sight, we should have visited the local vegetable and fruit stand on day one. Fresh fruit for our morning smoothies and veggies for our lunch salads were within minutes but we didn't stop there until day 5. Go there on Day 1! Mark and Paige are top notch owners. Communication during the whole rental agreement process and before/during our stay was exceptional. Eduardo, the local manager, is nearby for any day to day issues, but we had none. Could write more but space is limited. Thank you Paige and Mark! Pura Vida!"

  • Perfect Nosara setup

    "My family just returned from our Costa Rica vacation and couldn't be happier with our stay at Agua Dulce. It was the perfect location for us. We wanted to walk to the surf at Playa Guinoes and being able to walk to the shops and restaurants. Our 2br place was perfect for our kids (14 and 12), the pool was refreshing, wifi was a hit (I said we wouldn't use, but we did :), and the AC kept everyone cool at night. Great place, great time, memories we will have until we get back again! Thank you"
