Perfect Family Vacation Home in Beautiful Laid-Back Nosara
"Casa Cristal de Mar was perfect for our vacation in every way - it could not have been in a better location as we had surf lessons at Safari Surf School on Playa Guiones every day and was a short walk to everything we needed. We loved watching the monkeys visit the big tree by the garage and the iguanas roam the property. The home and grounds are very clean and well maintained. We felt safe and secure at this property. The outdoor kitchen and bar made for a laid-back experience. We stayed with another family and there was more space than we needed. Our kids loved the pool, ping pong table and ring toss game at the Rancho. Rebeca was wonderful and answered every question we had. It will go down as one of the most relaxing vacations we have ever had!"

"We just got back from 5 nights at Casita Louisa and cannot say enough good things about it. It's in a great location, you can walk or drive to the beach. Great restaurants in the area, so you don't have to go far. The house is fully equipped with everything you need. The pool is huge and was fantastic to have. The house is secure and the owners have made sure all the windows have bars, it has the safe room where you can store all your valuables and the pull down gate, which secures the front door. Master bedroom has a large king size bed, quite firm but we slept great. You do have to run the fans, along with AC at night as it gets quite hot.
We really enjoyed our stay there and would go back in a heartbeat!"

"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 loved our week long stay here! It is a beautiful and comfortable little villa with just about everything you could need. We had a car rental, however many things, e.g. beach, yoga, store, and some restaurants, are also within walking distance. The house manager was great in taking care of things. The little dipping pool, patio, and outdoor speakers (bring your own ipod--this plugs into the audio cord, which is plugged into the bluetooth, or some other bluetooth enabled device) were so nice we enjoyed our own yoga practice daily. It was amazing and I would definitely stay here again if I was in Nosara!"
