Everything we could have hoped for
Beautiful home. Exceptional staff. Comfortable beds. The layout of the house worked perfectly for my husband, myself, our daughter and her boyfriend! The house could have easily accommodated 2 more people. The pool was beyond our expectations and we just had a blast!!!
So glad you enjoyed your stay. Hope you can come back again.
Outstanding Property for a Relaxing Stay
My wife and I stayed for a week in June. The villa was extremely comfortable. The pool-side view out to the coast is excellent; the HomeAway listing pictures don't do it justice! The location of the villa is nice. It is in a gated community of a few houses at the top of a hill. The drive from the villa to Playa Guillones and Nosara only takes around 15-20 minutes. The bathrooms and kitchen are very nicely stocked and the grill area next to the pool was set up perfectly.
We had a wonderful week, thanks in large part to Lila Brown's advice and assistance while while we planned the visit. Lila also responded quickly to our emails while we were at the villa. The staff are very nice and helpful. My wife highly recommends the in-villa massage by Tatiana, which was set up by Antonio, the staff's supervisor. Also highly recommended is the spa, restaurant and juice bar at the Harmony Hotel in Playa Guillones.
I am so glad that you both enjoyed yourselves. I hope you have a chance to come back.
This home was perfect!!! It was just as described. Great communication from the property manager. They sent a package of information on the area with great tips on where to eat, details on the area, and detailed directions. The view from the pool which overlooks the ocean was wonderful. There are several houses in the community, but they are arranged so that you don't really see them and it feels very private. I wouldn't change a thing about this house!

My husband, son and his girlfriend and I cannot say how great this house was, from the exquisite views to the very comfortable home as well. The pictures just don't do the house any justice. Sitting in the pool and listening to the Howler Monkeys is amazing!! Also, while driving up the hill to the house, look in the trees for the monkeys. Star gazing at night around the pool is unbelievable.
We surfed everyday, and fished the mouth of the Nosara River. Unfortunately, no bait fish were around that day but the views alone were incredible. People riding horses, kayaking and fishing in abundance. The Rodeo was another great trip! If there is one while you are visiting, do not miss it, it is an amazing experience - great food too.
Lila was a pleasure to deal with, as was her caretaker Antonio!! They supplied us with so much information to help make our stay even easier. Anything we needed he was always available. He even met us at the car rental store to take us to the house when we arrived. Marie Elena arrived twice during the week to do housecleaning.
Do not miss stopping in the small town of Garza while driving to Nosara or other areas, it is a great little beach, great seafood store and the Playa Garza Hotel has a great Italian restaurant, as well as Pacifico Azul that had great dinners as well!
If hitting the beaches in Nosara some great little spots to eat, but realize it is more Americanized and prices are a little higher. The little hut on the way to the beach in Nosara that has smoked food was also a hit!
We will definitely come back and will also tell our friends and family to visit Casa Bougainvillea!
I'm so glad you enjoyed your stay. Always nice to have such great guests.
Casa Bougainvillea is located in the community of Vista Royal perched on the hill above the small fishing village of Garza. From here you can depart on deep sea fishing excursions, horseback riding on the beach or spend the day combing the pristine palm studded beach for seashells. There are two small grocery stores as well as a fish market where you can buy the days catch to grill up back at the house. 6 km to the north you will find the popular surf town Guiones, also known as Nosara beach. With it’s boutique hotels and international restaurants, Guiones draws a wide range of tourists from young surfers to those looking for a more upscale holiday. Here you can find french pastries, handmade ice cream, a local farmers market, surfboard rentals as well as the renown Nosara Yoga Institute. Continue further north and you will come to Playa Ostinal, famous for the nesting site of the Olive Ridely and Leatherback turtles. If you time it right you can watch these massive turtles come ashore to lay their eggs, an experience you are not soon to forget.
