  • Retreat like Property!

    "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."

  • THIS PLACE WAS MAGICAL

    "My wife and I had the time of our life. Carl was a excellent host, He always had a beautiful smile, and was eager to help us have a good time. The map he gave us of the area was fantastic, he explained how to get to all the hot spots. The restaurants that he recommended where all excellent, we didn't have a bad meal the whole time we where there. you are with in walking distance of the most beautiful beach in the world. But if you want to venture out make sure you rent a 4x4. The roads are ruff and bumpy, but that's the price you pay for paradise. Thanks Carl for being you. Bob and Jania Fruit Heights Utah."

  • Michigan Couple Finds Paradise

    "This property was perfect...it had all the amenities such as A/C, fans, hot water, hammocks, outdoor covered patio, dishes, etc. We always seek privacy, which this has, and to be close to the beach (15 minute leisurely walk). You can't really get much closer than that in this area. You are in walking distance to the mini-super and several restaurants. It is a private location in the middle of everthing Guiones has to offer! It was super easy to arrange rental agreement and check in. Jason, the owner, was always timely in his communications. We would definitely recommend this property. Thank you!"

  • Best spot in Nosara

    "We (along with two other couples) had the pleasure of staying at Ginger Powers' Rancho Authentico for a week. We arrived after dark from Liberia, and Ginger was there to greet us and show us around. When we woke up the next morning, we couldn't believe it -- breathtaking beach, sunshine galore, and all of the beach amenities you could want -- lounge chairs, towels, outdoor shower, it was fantastic. Photos don't do it justice. It's bigger and better than the photos (and the photos look really fabulous). Before our trip, Ginger was very responsive on e-mail and helped us connect with local fruit/meat vendors who were able to deliver food before we arrived. There's a new gas range in the house that worked great, as did the blender for fruity cocktails. The craziest thing about this place is how quiet and un-touristy Playa Garza is. Many days, we were the only people on the beach. We felt as though we had an entire cove to ourselves. There were several funky beach bars that we could walk to at night (again - NO crowds and amazing star gazing). Playa Giones is a short 10 minute car ride away for more restaurants and shops. And, you can catch a boat for a fishing trip right there on the beach. We did several excursions, but also entertained ourselves in the water by body surfing and boogie boarding. The waves at Garza are tame enough for recreational swimming -- occasionally, the waves were good enough for actual surfing. But Guiones and its big surf was so close, it's not a big deal to travel where you want. Plaza Garza is VERY clean. Clean beach, clean water, no signs of pollution, jelly fish, etc. It's a PERFECT beach! We are still dreaming about this place and need to figure out when we can return. A couple of things we noted for future travelers: Bring ear plugs if road noise or high wind noise bothers you. We had a couple of very windy nights at the house with almonds/coconuts falling on the tin roof most of the night. Also, the house is right off the village road, and rush hour in Costa Rica is much earlier than in the U.S. (think, 5:30a.m.). Since the house is open-air, all of these sounds travel right into the house. Also, bring plenty of sunscreen if you don't want to fry (we ran out of sunscreen on the last day -- oops!). Ginger -- We will be back!"
