We had a wonderful experience! My family of 10 stayed at this house and it was great! The kitchen was fully stocked. They were kind enough to provide us with a few gallons on water (even though the tap water is drinkable) and a few other things while we we got settled in. Tiffany the very kind lady in charge of the house was awsome and very helpful. This house is a 10 minute walk from the beach. And a 10 minute drive into town in the cool ATVs that you can rent near buy. Over all we were pleased with our experience at this house and we will most definitely stay here again we come back to Costa Rica!
We had a wonderful Christmas holiday at Casa Carolina. The home is really nicely apportioned, the beds are comfortable, the ambiance is relaxing--and the pool is the perfect temperature! The sunsets were really amazing and the house is nicely situated where you don't really see or hear the neighbors but instead feel as if you are in nature (with the requisite monkeys and parrots in the trees--we got great photos). However, there are neighbors and the property manager is right across the street, so if you needed anything, help was a minute away.
What we especially liked: the wifi was great (we are a large family--8 kids--so therefore there are a lot of devices using the wifi, and we had no problems); the pool is fantastic with a ledge in the deep end to relax on and far enough away from the bedrooms that those taking a nap don't hear the kids in the pool; the TV had channels that brought us the NFL and NBA games, sometimes even in English, and other English-language channels; the feeling of being in nature; the fact that YOU CAN DRINK THE WATER--yes, straight from the tap.
What you should know: the walk to the beach is not very easily done, especially the return trip, so it's best just to drive; renting ATVs or golf carts is a great idea, but we didn't book in advance and they were all booked by the time we showed up (holiday week); for security, the house has metal grates that you can control to come down and cover the entrances (reminded us a bit of The Purge lol).
A/C and all appliances worked great, hammock is great place for a nap, surfing beach of Playa Guiones (10 min) and boogie boarding beach of Playa Pelada (5 min) easily accessible. Shopping less than 10 min away at Super La Paloma takes care of most needs.
Positives: Quiet location; views of ocean; bathroom for every bedroom; ample parking; large kitchen; awesome covered portal; beautifully landscaped.
Things we wish had been better, especially at this price point: Bottom line, we just wanted to arrive and relax, immediately. Instead, found ourselves having to clean off dirty countertops, wash dirty wine glasses and silverware (there is no automatic dishwaser); call property manager because none of the four coffee makers worked (kitchen was over stocked with useless items and lacking in the essentials); cutting boards in kitchen were a source of a very bad odor that took a day to discover; no hair dryer (even though one was promised); clothes washing machine was rusted and unusable; the sofa cushions were pretty gross to be honest; no toiletries were provided at all (maybe this is standard but with a dozen Airbnb stays, we've always been provided paper towels, shampoo, and shower and hand soap, at least); rooftop deck chairs were broken and unusable, making one of the selling points of this property useless without having to haul other chairs up the spiral staircase; internet access was intermittent---- and when we texted property manager about it, she did not reply to that concern--- instead, she warned us to stock up on provisions because a tropical storm was coming in. Turned out it was going to be Hurricane Otto--- prediction was for Liberia airport to close, and our family had not arrived yet, so we had to leave after just 50 hours there. We had paid for a full week but were not offered any sort of credit or refund. This may be a "that's life" business decision, but coupled with the above, we just felt this was an unpleasant experience overall. Too bad, too---- we were soooooo excited and had such a positive outlook before arriving !!!!
We know the area very well & the location was great for us!
My family and I loved Costa Rica! It's a beautiful country that we will be visiting again. The house had plenty of room for the the 10 of us and the views were incredible! We rented a golf cart and were able to get around to all the areas that we wanted to visit. The beaches were clean and Miss Sky's Canopy Tour is a must for zip lining! In the house the AC units are only in the bedrooms but there are plenty of doors and windows to open to get a cross breeze through the house. The pool was very refreshing and again had an amazing view. Just wish there was a porch light, when bbqing in the evening, we really couldn't see. The sun was down and it was dark by 6pm and the sun is up by 5am. While in Costa Rica you should remember to watch for scorpions and bugs that sting, the town itself had power "brown outs" but we never lost power for an extended time (maybe a minute or two) and we ran out of water for a day because they were repairing something in the area and we were unaware and used up the reserve tank. The electric and water issue we had was not something that the homeowner could control, it's just something that happens in Costa Rica. We enjoyed the beach, food and refreshing drinks at Olgas Bar, which was about a 5 minute golf cart ride. My family and I had a great time and we look forward to renting Casa Carolina and visiting again!
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at Playa Pelada Casa Carolina...My favorite part was rising just before first light and enjoying the sunrise with the myriad of birds and small mammals on the patio overlooking the Pacific...sublime...Come and see for yourself..you won't be disappointed...
The house is located about 400 meters past Lagarta Lodge. Look for signs to this lodge when you hit Nosara.
