Recent Nosara reviews

  • 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."

  • Peaceful Serenity in Nosara & Playa Pelada

    "My family of 4 (2 college daughters) spent a wonderful 5 days at Paraisito in April of 2015. Although listed as a home, it could legitimately be better described as a 5 star villa, with every amenity you need for a wonderful vacation. The craftsmanship alone was flawless, beautiful exposed, cathedral dark wood ceilings in each room, intricate tile work throughout, 2 beautiful bathrooms with walk in showers, and a layout which gave plenty of room for fellowship but also privacy when needed. The location was ideal. We spent the first few days driving and exploring various beaches and towns in the area but the last few days we stayed right at Playa Pelada, a 8 min walk, (or 2 min drive) from the house. (There are two parking areas to this beach, one closer to the house and one, more public, closer to 2 awesome beachfront restaurants. By the way, we rented a beach umbrella at the Frog Pad for the week which was absolutely essential (in addition to to sunscreen). We went zip lining and horseback riding, and ate out a few times (our favorite was La Luna) but we also bought food to cook breakfast and lunch (mostly smoothies) back at the house with its fully appointed kitchen. With all the activities, however, we all agreed our highlight was getting to the beautiful beach, enjoying the sun, ocean, swimming in the waves and exploring the tidepools at low tide, and returning back to Paraisito each evening. A truly relaxing and refreshing vacation. P.S. A special thank you to the owners and caretakers who answered many questions very quickly and gave great advice for activities and transport logistics to make our stay one of the best vacations we have had as a family.)"

  • Perfect Nosara setup

    "My family just returned from our Costa Rica vacation and couldn't be happier with our stay at Agua Dulce. It was the perfect location for us. We wanted to walk to the surf at Playa Guinoes and being able to walk to the shops and restaurants. Our 2br place was perfect for our kids (14 and 12), the pool was refreshing, wifi was a hit (I said we wouldn't use, but we did :), and the AC kept everyone cool at night. Great place, great time, memories we will have until we get back again! Thank you"

  • 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!"
