"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!"

"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!"

"If you are looking for a place to stay on a secluded beach surrounded by incredible beauty and wildlife, adventure and some really good eateries close by, Casa de Memphis I may well be your ticket to Nirvana. CdM I is well appointed, clean and has all the essential comforts needed to kick back and relax. Lots to do and see in the surrounding area, although we liked Playa Pelada just outside of our door the best . Our group of 6 - (2 couples and 2 grown sons) had plenty of space and were comfortable although the 2 guys had to sleep on the couch and a cot that was available (there's also a bunk bed for younger kids). We pretty much split eating in and out. There was a pescaderia a few kilometers east of Nosara that had fabulous fresh fish (tuna, snapper, shrimp) to bring home and cook and a couple of local groceries that were well stocked for the expats and the tourists visiting the area. We ate very well. This is a special location in Costa Rica to enjoy nature and Casa de Memphis I is the perfect place to stay to take full advantage of it."

"Villa Sonita is perfect! Everything was just as expected and better! Rebecca, the manager was a delight! She arranged our shuttle from Liberia to house and once there we just rented Quads from Monkey quads for our transportation for the week! We had a mixed group of 13 and had plenty of space, and plenty to do. Woke up in the morning with coffee and howler monkeys by the pool and the sound of the ocean waves. Truly paradise! We would walk to different places or ride quads, we saw the playa Guiones beach and the black beach at playa Octinol. One of our favorite spots to eat or get a margarita was beach dog cafe, just a short walk on the way to playa Guiones or a fun quad ride. :) We are definitely going back to Nosara and would love to stay in Villa Sonita again~"
