About Adrianne Sever

We are two families who bought Villa Belitza in 2014 after falling in love with Nosara.

Adrianne Sever purchased this villa in 2014

Why Adrianne Sever chose Playa Guiones

We have rented a few different houses in the area including Villa Belitza, and loved the atmosphere, the privacy, the sound of the surf in the background, and the ease of getting to the beach through the direct beach path that Belitza offered. We also like that we could have some privacy as a family that the house offered. We could see ourselves raising our kids at the property over the next 20 years.

What makes this villa unique

Very few properties in Nosara offer direct beach access, where you can hear the sound of the surf in the background. The property itself is large, private, with lush grounds and serenity. It is a perfect location!

Wonderful in every way

  • 5 of 5

We were three families (six adults, five children) who stayed at the Villa Belitza over the Christmas and New Years holidays and can't say enough good things about the property, or about Playa Guiones and the people there in general! The location is great and the layout for larger groups is one of the best I've stayed at, allowing just enough privacy for everyone. In reality we all mainly lived in the long porch common space, which had enough lounge spaces to relax and read a book or nap in a hammock, or to gather everyone for meals around the large wood table. The house was clean and in excellent condition, the grounds and pool were nicely tended, and we loved getting to know the wildlife (monkeys, iguanas, pizotes, birds, crabs) who live around the property. The path to the beach was probably one of the most fantastic aspects of the property - it was unbeatable to be able to run down and get out for an early morning surf and be able to see the sunset every night. A full moon and high tide at New Years eve made the beach a truly magical place. Eduardo was very helpful any time we needed something, and helped us arrange taxis, dinner reservations, maid, cook, security guard, and occasional babysitter. We had a wonderful cook who came once every three days and made truly delicious meals, including a Christmas feast. It was worth every penny, and often meant we had leftovers for at least a day, and then could try some of the local restaurants on the other days - which especially fun when there is live music. The kids went about half the days to the day camp at the Harbor Reef Hotel around the corner and absolutely loved it; the rest of the time they pretty much lived in the pool or at the beach. Playa Guiones is a great place to learn to surf - we surfed with Agua Tibia, who were super nice and great instructors, and we also rented a couple of boards so that we could go out and practice whenever we wanted. There are also a couple of yoga studios within walking distance from the house, which had excellent classes in beautiful jungle settings. All in all, it was an incredible two weeks, and as we shovel snow back home all we can think about is when we can go back!

A beautiful home in a "post card " setting!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home in Paradise with our Family. The layout of the homes/casitas worked perfectly for our Family. We truly enjoyed the backyard/pool/summer kitchen.

The home was clean. The furniture and bedding were ample. Outdoor space was great.

One note, make sure to bring in everything when you leave the premises and every night. Make sure to lock the units and place your valuables in a safe. Unfortunately we had all "adult clothing, shoes, sandals , a wetsuit, and a pair of Rx sunglasses stolen one night. These were things left on the back living space. They did not take any of the children's things. The property manager when notified had a security person check on the property.

Unbeatable location in paradise for a group!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 10 day stay at Villa Belitza and can not say enough great things! My husband and I traveled with four other couples - we are in our late twenties and wanted to head somewhere that allowed some privacy but mostly easy access to activities and the town.

Villa Belitza was clean, updated, and in a great spot. It is easy enough to walk into town, but our group rented golf carts and those helped us get ALL over the place- including the grocery stores that were about 2 miles away. There are a ton of great restaurants (Il Basilico, 10Pies, Beach Dog) that are an easy golf cart away and many shops. The beach is a quick 2-3 minute walk and is beautiful, uncrowded, and had great waves for surfing.

Eduardo was the property manager we worked the most closely with and he was awesome. He was very attentive and was happy to arrange restaurant reservations, ziplining tour, ATV tour, chefs to cook dinner for us, and even recommend a doctor when my husband had a surfing injury that required stitches. He went above and beyond to let us know about local live music that he thought we would enjoy or to let us know about sea turtle hatchings in case we were interested. I can't say enough good things about the property management! There was a little delay in their email response leading up to the trip but I think that is part due to the renovations that were taking place and partially due to "island time." Just like any tropical spot, the country kind of moves at their own speed. Isn't that why it is where we go to relax, though?

We utilized the pool, outdoor table, and kitchens often as we did many of our meals at the house. It was great for a big group. Shortly before arrival, the owners renovated the outdoor bar and grill and it looks phenomenal. There are all the amenities needed for an outdoor kitchen. Our only comment is that we rented surfboards and it would be awesome to have a place to secure them outside so that we didn't have to store them in the house every night.

The security at the house was good. There is an alarm system that we would set in the evening when we went out for dinner and combination locks on all doors and gates. These were easy to use and we only managed to set the alarms off once. Overall, we never felt threatened at all and Nosara seemed like a very safe place.

We will absolutely be back! Thank you for sharing your getaway spot!

A Beautiful House in a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Ah, Nosara. This was our first trip to this beautiful area. We have been back for less than a week and are already thinking about when we can return. Our family of four (2 adults, 2 children ages 5 & 9) stayed at Casa Belitza for 1 week in July. It is a fantastic house that offers outdoor living at its finest. For us, the highlights were the incredible backyard, pool, and the private jungle path, filled with curious little "halloween crabs", that leads you to the beach. We also loved having the outdoor kitchen area to cook fresh fish and relax with a glass of wine, while watching the geckos came out to chase insects. Really, you can not beat this location! Playa Guiones is definitely the place to be in Nosara. We went to Beach Dog Cafe a few times, indulged in massages at Tica Massage, and checked out the little shops in town-alll within walking distance. The house is nicely decorated and separated into three suites, as described in the listing. Casa Belitza is perfect for two families traveling together. It also worked for just our family. We enjoyed having access to all three suites. A couple things we noted were the main suite's master shower water pressure was running quite low during our stay. However, the junior suite's shower was really nice. Also, as another reviewer mentioned, the terrace tiles can be quite slippery when wet. We utilized the yoga mats that were provided, and all was well. The owners were very responsive and easy to work with. Ed, their property manager, was also quite helpful. He organized a fantastic zip line tour, and saw that a minor electrical problem was quickly remedied. We definitely recommend this house. It was the icing on top to a fantastic vacation.

Wonderful Family Stay!Thi

  • 5 of 5

Our last day here, so I am asking the family, mostly in the pool, what they would like to say about Casa Belitza. Here are the comments . . .

Perfect location. Great to have our own pool. Loved the private walk to the beach. Convenient to walk into restaurants and stores. Home lay-out is great for 3 families traveling together - some privacy to go with the together time. EVERYONE did a little surfing - not just the serious surfers, and all enjoyed many hours on the beautiful beach. Loved how close to nature - monkeys in the trees, cotes throught the deck area, iguanas close up. House is clean and relatively critter-free! Definitely would come back.
