The Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at The Beach House and highly recommend choosing it for its location, amenities, cleanliness, and overall experience Rick and his assistants provide to his visitors. They helped with booking of excursions, transportation, cooking, and any information needed. The townhouse was nicely decorated, comfortable, and safe. The pool area was a welcomed bonus we used everyday. We will choose The Beach House again when coming back to Nosara.

You don't need a car

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of five. A five year old, two teens and two parents. Stayed two weeks in April 2017. Rented a car and drove from Liberia to Playa Guiones. Nice tour but rental car is not necessary. The beach house was ideal for us. In my opinion it is suitable for a very wide range of travellers. Air conditioning. Two bedroom three bath. Midday heat is soothed by a dip in the pool 20' from the door. Sunrise and sunset surfing is 300' from the door. Dependable waves daily. 4 kilometre long beach. House has staff onsite daily. Maintenance and cleaning issues were resolved for us within minutes. Rick is onsite daily checking on guests and addressing concerns, of which there were only a few. Awesome local and international restaurants are several minutes walk. Too many restaurants to sample them all. Mini super market walking distance. Go to Juan Surfo's for board rental.

I recommend the Beach House. Do not confuse this with Nosara Beach house nearby. Do not confuse Playa Guiones with Nosara. This rental puts luxury in paradise. Con: with the increase in popularity, construction noise can be heard throughout the area in the mornings. Quiet midday and evenings. Except for the birds...

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time to Playa Guiones and The Beach House was excellent. It is so close to everything, you don't even need a car. This place is perfect for families and surfers. The whole property, which consists of 3 town houses, is kept clean and is very safe. The pool area is perfect for hanging out and relaxing after a long day of surfing or going on different tours. There is lush vegetation and bananas grow everywhere on the property. Monkeys and iguanas are always in the trees. The beach is only a couple minutes walk which was nice to wake up at dawn and go for a surf. Rick and Colleen were great. Colleen took care of pretty much everything for us. We can't wait to go back to nosara and when we do we're staying at the Beach House.

About Rick Wilkins

I have been investing and creating vacation dream homes for over 30 years. My experience extends to many resort locations throughout the US and now Costa Rica. The Beach House was 18 months in the making, the result is everything we had hope for. It is truly an exceptional property

Rick Wilkins purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Rick Wilkins chose Canton of Nicoya

Of all the choices this 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 front door. You can easily be there for a week or more without the need of a car. ATV's (quads and golf carts) are available just a short distance away. 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 in the compound making it possible for a groups of 12 or 16 people. 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.
