  • Simply Amazing!

    "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!"

  • Awesome location and it has all we needed

    "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."

  • One word: Incredible

    "When we found this property, I confess that we thought it was too good to be true. The price, location and view just seemed an impossible mix for Nosara. Imagine waking up at dawn to check the surf from the porch, cooking up a feast at the grill overlooking the ocean, sipping sparkling wine in the pool under the stars, observing the diverse range of flora and fauna from the nearby wildlife refugee, wondering the beach at night as huge sea turtles crawl up the sand and plant their eggs, and each and every day sleeping to the peaceful sound of the ocean. If you can imagine that, then you can imagine the incredibly unique space that Carl & Kathy have created in Costa Rica. Furthermore, I challenge you to find more affable and welcoming hosts. My wife and I have travelled a lot (40 countries each) and Carl (whose wife was away) was the most genuinely accommodating host we've ever met - he went out of his way regularly to make sure we were content each and every day. One note: if you're in the Nosara region, it's worth renting a car, preferably a 4WD, as the roads are unsealed and can at times get quite bumpy. Alternatively you can rent quad bikes once in the area. If you're reading this review, then I suggest you book. And book now."

  • Spring Break at Casa Olaje

    "Family of five with two boys (13 and 11) and daughter (9) had a fantastic time at Casa Olaje. The house is in a great location, close to everything. Easy walk to awesome beach. House was very comfortable with a very nice pool. We rented quads and four-wheelers to get around for longer trips around the area. Jaimy and AnnMarie were very helpful. We will definitely be back."
