About Rick Wilkins

I have been investing in and creating vacation dream houses for over 30 years. My experience extends to many resort locations throughout the US and now Costa Rica. The Beach House was a year in the making, the result is everything we had hoped for. it is truly an exceptional property.

Rick Wilkins purchased this Townhome in 2008

Why Rick Wilkins chose Playa Guiones

Of all the choices this property was the very best location. Along with direct access to the beach everything I would expect from a vacation to a Costa Rican beach destination was right at my fingertips. There are great restaurants, activity centers, surf schools, and a grocery store within a stones throw of our front door. You can easily be there a week or more without a car. Bicycle and all-terrain vehicle rentals are within a block. There was simply no better location.

What makes this Townhome unique

The Beach House is in the middle of all the activity of Playa Guiones, yet when you are sitting by the pool you feel completely removed in a tranquil setting. You are surrounded with beautiful vegetation, it's like being in a jungle and at the beach at the same time. The doors open up to the pool area, making it feel like a big outdoor living room. The upstairs terrace has a big hammock for reading or taking afternoon naps. There is an outdoor pool and bar (Rancho) where you can entertain your friends or family. There are three villas, making it possible for a groups of 12 or 16 people. Please see our other listings 445649 and 590873. You can make this your own private family retreat. To go along with this we have a great cook to prepare your meals and serve you out by the pool and bar.

It was well managed and everyone was very responsive when we had questions or something needed to be taken care of. With the beach house being close to the beach, it was easy to get down to get my surfing fix in each day.

                                                                      Perfect location and super accomodating

                                                                      Shelly V.

Well, that is if you plan...as we did...to surf and spend most of our time on the beach. Rick has thought of everything. The entire property is very well secured and you definitely feel that your belongings are safe staying here. Everyday there are ground keepers taking care of the property and landscaping, and it shows. It's just beautiful. The pool is perfect after a morning of surfing in the hot sun. And the perfect area to relax, read a book and drink fresh coconut water from the guy on the corner that sells them everyday. For warning that the bugs kind of rule around these parts. It's the jungle after all. Our place got pretty buggy every evening, despite the place being sprayed for them. It was a little annoying, but nothing Rick could have controlled. We used a lot of the spray that was provided in our place. AND we asked Luz to have the cleaning girls come by one morning and clean up the dead bugs on our floor.... they cleaned the entire place!!! Thank you Luz. We weren't expecting that! Guiones is a special place and we can't wait to visit again soon!

                                                                      Tera M.

                                                                      The Beach House more than exceeded my expectations. We were greeted warmly by Vicente and Rebecca. The place was impeccably clean. The furnishings were tastefully done.

                                                                      Clara cooked wonderful meals. Vicente arranged a deep-sea fishing trip with Eduardo for my husband and 2 kids. It was a private excursion. Vicente also arranged for his friends at Mis Amores to take us on a horseback riding tour that we amazing.

                                                                      Rick was in the States when we were visiting. He was always available via phone to answer questions and give us advice.

                                                                      We were visiting Costa Rica for the first time. We brought 3 children with us. Visiting Nosara is not like going to a 4-star resort. It's more rugged and an adventure. So I am glad that we selected the Beach House. It helped us feel comfortable right away and relax into just enjoying the beauty of Nosara.

Very centrally located, you can walk to restaurants, small grocery stores and surf shops. I not only recommend this property to friends and family but am already planning our next trip. Thank you to Rick (owner) for being so helpful and informative. We could not have asked for a better experience. Pura Vida

                                                                      Ruthann T.

                                                                      Traveling to the Beach House and Costa Rica for the first time, was exactly what Rick Wilkins described. We went with our daughters, 8 and 6 and they and we can’t wait to go back! You can walk to the beach, 310 steps, and everything you need in town another 310 steps the other direction. The beach is expansive and waves are friendly enough for the beginner surfer and the friendly swimmer ALL DAY long! We took surf lessons from Juan Surfo, best lesson we have ever received! The house set-up is great for families. We enjoyed many hours in the pool and eating at the rancho. We did have Clara cook for us two of the nights and had enough food for lunch ALL week! It’s about a 5 hour drive from San Jose airport, very doable. The town is lovely and we had everything we needed and so much more. The internet was very reliable as well, the kitchen is well stocked with pots and pans. Counting the days until we go back. The complex is 3 units, which we shared with a family friend and their children and the other unit was not anyone we knew but they were very nice. Rick does an excellent job making sure the units are rented to the right families. We did hear howler monkeys in the mornings and at night. We never had any issues with safety or crime. WE also did PLaya Ponies, and Miss Sky Zip Lining, Playa Guinoes is a very special place!

Pool, tiki bar, great waves, clean and quiet. The place looked brand new! Great to hang out and have a few beers after our surf sessions. The owner, even hooked us up with a cook (at our request) who made all of us incredible dinners. The owner was a legend. Great guy, very nice and helpful. I would definitely recommend this place to any of my friends or family.
