  • 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!"

  • Great private cottage near everything

    "My husband and I stayed here for 15 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our time. We were here for the end of the dry season so had to deal with nightly water shut-offs (typically from 9pm - 6am) and occasional power outages. Nothing inhibiting at all to our stay. We rented bicycles to get around the village (with surf racks). The roads are very rustic so if you want to go exploring, I HIGHLY recommend renting AWD vehicle or a 4-wheeler. We surfed almost everyday, took may yoga classes at Nosara Yoga Institute, relaxed, etc. The hammocks are really great. The shower(s) had plenty of hot water. Everything in the kitchen and the wifi worked great. The cottage has two other cottages nearby but the plants around the porch help you feel like you are in your own private oasis. One of the neighbors were a really friendly Canadian couple visiting. The other neighbors were not so friendly and had dogs that barked ALL the time. Kind of frustrating at first but we learned to deal with it. The bed is reasonably comfy. It is a firm bed which I like but my husband prefers a softer mattress so he struggled the first few nights to get comfortable. The cottage is very clean and neat. We opted for the a/c which was a really nice break from the heat (mid-90s) and helped us sleep better. The cottage is very secure but you need to bring your things in at night - we left some items drying on the clothesline overnight and had some theft (as did our neighbors). The local food is delicious - fresh pineapple, coconut, watermelon, cantaloupe, strawberries, mangoes and other fresh veggies. I highly recommend checking out Tibidabo. It was an excellent Spanish Tapas restaurant. The prices of things in this area are fairly high for Latin America. Expect to pay American prices. Almost everyone speaks english here. The sunsets are AMAZING and it's a great time to surf. When you get to Guiones Beach, take a left and walk 100-300 meters for waves. These waves are great for novice surfing. The waves to the right are much larger and stronger - where the good surfers go. They are really fun to watch! This is a great beach for all levels surfing. Playa Pelada, just north is a really nice beach to visit and hang at with 2 restaurants with beach views and cool rocky ledges along the beach to explore. Take the beach there at low tide. All in all, a fantastic stay. Jason, the owner was very easy to communicate with as well as Virginie and Ivan, the property managers."

  • aging surfdog

    "Gato Cansado is a tiny bungalow at the top of a hill in K Section. It's a 15 minute walk to the surf. Small and cozy, this Casita was perfectly functional for my wife and me. If you are looking for luxury, this is not your place. If you have simple tastes you will love it. The fence around the property gives you privacy and the cottage is bordered on three sides by forest, so you will see some wildlife. You’ll have neighbors are close by on one side and you can hear their conversations as they sit by their pool. Gato Cansado’s small soaking pool is refreshing after walking up the steep hill from the beach. We did not contract for the AC, preferring to enjoy the Costa Rican heat after a long, cold New England winter. If you want to go out for dinner you will need some type of transportation. Virginie, the property manager, was responsive and sweet and made our trip hassle free. We would have no hesitation renting Gato Cansado again."

  • Great Spot!

    "Great spot just a quick five minute walk to Guiones. Very clean. Great outdoor living. Quiet at night. Perfect for large families or multiple families. We had 11 total and were very comfortable. I would absolutely recommend."
