Excellent beach vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. Graham was super helpful. The pool is great and shaded, so during the heat of the day you can escape the sun a bit. The beach is beautiful, and not nearly as crowded as Guionnes. The kitchen is huge - we were able to cook great meals. We had an excellent trip, and can't wait to return.

Fantastic apartment on Playa Pelada

  • 5 of 5

We were here over Christmas and New Year, and it was relaxing and calm while the other beach areas seemed to be busy and dusty.

The managers were very quick in responding to any question I had.

In summary, a great place for a relaxing beach holiday, but bear in mind that you are a 10 minute drive on dirt roads to the main surfing beach.

Really clean and comfy and pretty set up as far as Cooking needs.

  • 3 of 5

Fran and Graham were so lovely, super helpful, responsive and kind. The condo is super clean and comfortable in a pretty rustic setting. It is definately lacking in beach goodies. It is set back a lot further from the beach than we imagined. The beach itself was not super swim / surf friendly so we walked to Guillones which was awesome. Not an ideal spot if you have kids.

The property and beach pristine! Spectacular hosts too!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our 6 days here...plenty close to surrounding activities; surfing, fishing, kayaking, shopping, dining....all within 5-15 minutes!

Special thanks to our hosts; Fran and Graham, they made our stay even better.

La Lagarta Lodge perffy for a sunset dinner. La Garza great for fishing and swimming. NOsara Tico surf was amazing; our two teen boys were surfing by weeks end on their own.

We had a lovely time...thanks again! PUra Vida!!

A wonderful stay!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned (April '17) from five nights at Villas Las Palmas. Fran and Graham are awesome: so helpful in getting us to the condo (ask for their handy map!), checking us in, answering all sorts of random questions along the way, helping us with dinner reservations at La Luna, etc. The condo was super-clean (a real feat in dry season, with so much dust and sand), spacious, well-appointed and comfortable. The location is amazing; steps from the very nice pool and a short path out to magnificent Playa Pelada. Leave time to stroll along the water (you can get all the way to Guiones to the south, over the path by the old hotel), to boogie board right out from the condo at high-tide and spy super-cool creatures at low-tide. And of course, to watch beautiful sunsets every evening. Get up with the sun and walk out the front door then to the south, and you'll hear/see howler monkeys and all sorts of birds in the trees, too. Nosara town is easy to get to from here (be ready for the roads in general -- an adventure for a spoiled US family used to paved everything), with good shopping. Great restaurants nearby on the beach and off (very favorite: Il Peperoni). Tons of adventures await... We highly recommend this place, especially because of Fran and Graham. THANK YOU again for a fabulous visit.
