About Jackie Francis

I'm a long time local of Aspen, Colorado - moved here when I was 7yrs. Married with 2 beautiful daughters and we are all learning to surf in our spare time.

Jackie Francis purchased this house in 2012

Why Jackie Francis chose Playa Guiones

We bought this house because it is located in one of the best surfing spots in the world with great food, wonderful people and a special feel. The house couldn't be more perfect for a beach vacation!

What makes this house unique

Nosara is a magical place and our home is quiet, yet close to the action. It's in the jungle, but close to the most beautiful beach. You can relax and rest or keep endlessly active and experience the most wonderful vacation!

Great beach house in Nosara!

  • 5 of 5

Two families - 4 adults and 3 kids ages 3, 4, and 5 - ventured to Nosara for some good clean family and adult fun. We checked AirBnB and VRBO and found Pura Villa. After comparing many houses for size, pool, outdoor living, proximity to beach and town we chose Pura Villa. Looking back, we couldn't have asked for more.

Beach was a 10-minute walk so close enough (except we ended up renting a 4 door Hyundai to tote the kids and surfboards back and forth to the beach - Economy Car rental was cheap and easy).

Bedroom situation was ideal - 1 BR for each couple and 1 queen and 1 upper bunk bed for the kids (if your kids can handle that).

Kitchen was new and nice and plenty for our needs. We didn't end up using the outdoor kitchen but did eat most meals outside on the patio under the palapa. A few kid meals were inside and the living room doubles easily as a kids' dining room.

TV (with Apple TV with reception for Netflix somehow) was great for quick TV and night movies for the kids.

Pool was nice size and temperature and kid friendly bc depth was from like 3-5 feet. Kids spent hours and hours in the pool after beach time and before bedtime.

We were lucky enough to find a local to prepare our breakfasts and lunches and most dinners and to babysit the kids (I gave these references to the manager of this property).

Pura Vida!
