About Hans & Dominga Nykamp

We previously owned 'Villa Belitza' at Playa Guiones which enjoyed a 5 star rating during the many years we rented it out as vacation home. We love Nosara, which is a very unique place.

Hans & Dominga Nykamp purchased this villa in 2014

Why Hans & Dominga Nykamp chose Nosara

After spending many years right on the the beach we moved to the little cooler climate of a hill top property.

What makes this villa unique

The amazing views of the beach, surf and ocean. Watching sunsets sitting on our patio or in the pool.


Excellent! 4.7/5 -

We loved Villa Gullwing! The views were amazing. We saw howler monkeys and beautiful birds every day. The drive into town was very easy and there was plenty of parking near the beaches and in town. The house was very clean and the outside areas, including the pool, were beautifully maintained. After reading a previous review, we were initially concerned about potential security issues. We were sure to lock our valuables in the safe room and used the alarm, but we never had any problems and felt very safe!! Our only frustration was the dishwasher was not working as we had 7 people in our group. Other than that, the villa was fantastic, Hans was very responsive and helpful, and we would love to return one day!

Owner's Response: We are happy you enjoyed our home. Unfortunately, we were not able to have the dishwasher repaired because it turned out that the necessary part was not available in a timely manner. Instead of waiting any longer we replaced it with a brand new one.

Great House Overall!

  • 5 of 5

My family, 3 adults and 2 small children, stayed her in Late July - Early August. Great House Overall!

The house is private up on the hill overlooking the ocean with beautiful views and flora. Hans (the owner) was extremely responsive throughout the whole process and would respond to any questions almost immediately. Kitchen was adequate though some of the appliances could be updated. The house has most modern amenities including WIFI, satellite tv and a media server with over 300+ really good movies, IP phone for US calling, AC through out, etc. But that's not why you come here. You come here and spend most of your time on the deck/patio with the beautiful views and gorgeous salt-water pool and fairly close proximity (~5 min drive) to the beautiful beach.

The only negatives: Some parts of the house could use a bit of an upgrade (main family room couch, some of the appliances, , mattresses not super comfy, linens) and the down stairs 3rd bedroom must of had a previous leak as it had a bit of a moldy must to it. There is a dehumidifier in the room and AC, but, it did little to suck out the humidity and smell.

Besides this nitpicking, this house remains a great value, in a great location with great views and overall I would highly recommend!

Final note: There were some previous reviews discussing security concerns. At no time did we feel insecure in this house. The property is gated, has an alarm system, and is in a great neighborhood. In fact, in my 20+ years coming to Costa Rica, this may be the "safest" place I stayed. In short, do not be concerned about security.

This house was amazing and would stay here again for sure. This place was absolutely beautiful and wish we could have stayed longer. Hans was wonderful to work with and extremely fast at responding to our needs as well as returning the deposit.

The only thing is that it seems like a tad farther than 5 minutes from the beach. That being said you are away from the noise so it was wonderful in the mornings and evenings bc it was so peaceful and relaxing.

beautiful place to relax

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in Villa Gullwing for 4 nights in April, 2016. Reservations, communication with Hans, directions, house amenities were great. If you're not familiar with Nosara, it is a very quiet, non-touristy, yoga, back to basics kind of place. The surf is excellent. Beach is nice. There is a good store in Nosara (or in Nicoya) before you get there. The house was very comfortable. Sometimes we were just as happy to be sitting on the back porch with the pool and ocean for a beautiful view, listening to music on the bluetooth speakers, and just relaxing. We'd head to the beach in the late afternoon to surf and watch the sunset. We felt the house was safe and secure. There are wall air conditioners in each of the bedrooms that keep the rooms fairly cool (although the rooms would never get below about 24 or 25 degrees Celsius. That's about 77 degrees F.) So it's comfortable, but not sure why they wouldn't cool more than that. All in all, we really enjoyed our stay in this home. The relaxed vibe of the area grows on you. The house is affordably priced and could fit up to 6-10 people. I didn't see other places that I would rather have stayed. The pool really is unique and makes the house special. Thank you Hans for letting us stay.

The Villa and its location at the top of the hill are impressive.

  • 4 of 5

The property is well maintained, cannot put any bad reviews about it.

The pool is big enough, well maintained, the Villa rooms are spacey enough for the 10 people that visited. the location offers a good variety of attractions that kept us busy during the stay. Variety of Restaurants are nearby, and the most important part if the different beaches we visited.

This is definitely a good choice to stay and have fun.

Treetop Bliss at Villa Gullwing

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I had the pleasure of staying at Villa Gullwing this past September. We had the house all to ourselves and enjoyed all of the amenities including the expansive back patio area with out door dining, pool, and an incredible view.

Let's start with the location and the view. Incredible. I have to say that it was my first time in Costa Rica and I can't think of anywhere else you would want to stay to take in the natural beauty of this amazing destination. Because the villa is located in the mountains above Playa Guiones, you have a truly stunning view of the ocean and rainforest below. You feel as though you're perched in the treetops with the birds and monkeys that you can hear throughout the day. Besides the view, we really enjoyed the outdoor dining areas and the gorgeous infinity pool and water feature. Although we enjoyed it just the two of us, we were already making plans to bring back a group of friends - as the villa really lends itself to entertaining for a group. Plenty of room and space to spend time with your favorite people!

Inside, the house is in immaculate condition, spotless, and had everything we needed in the kitchen. Each of the rooms were uniquely designed - we had trouble picking which one to stay in! There is a fun, local touch to the decor, I loved the handcrafted feel of it all, but with a touch of resort/luxury. Perfection! The bathrooms were done very nicely with stone/tile and a "waterfall" style shower head. Most importantly in Costa Rica... the "Air Con", powerful cooling AC units in each room made for a great night's sleep.

A few added bonuses are the large living room with cable and movie selections. It was nice to cook dinner and have a movie night in after a day of activities. Also, the alarm, combined with being away from the beach and the guard at the entrance of the property, all made us feel very safe and secure when leaving the house with our belongings inside.

The location of Villa Gullwing is perfect. You'll want a car to get into town, or any of the great beaches, but everything is very, very close. Playa Guiones has many cute restaurants and shops and there is plenty to do.

We LOVED our stay at Villa Gullwing and would recommend it to families, couples and friends. Hans, the owner/manager of the property was extremely helpful, responsive and easy to work with to secure the rental. We couldn't ask for anything more!
