Wonderful stay at Casa-Banda!
"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!"

"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."

"We highly recommend this beautiful home in Playa Guiones. Stayed here with another family, plenty of space for all 9 of us. Woke up to Monkeys in the trees in the early morning, picking the fruit. The outdoor kitchen and bar was great, nicely air conditioned rooms were awesome during hot afternoons after a dip in the pool. Walk down to the beach for sunsets and evening surfs. Great Yoga and massage places in town. Juice bars are really good, so is the ice cream in town. Rebecca arranged for a cook for a several nights, very good food. Clean, beautiful place to stay, would definitely come back!"

"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."
