  • Cleanest, Safest, and most economical place to stay in Guiones

    "Villa Canadiense is clean, safe, and has everything you need to relax. I stayed there for two weeks in January/February 2016 and lived care free and happy. Me and three of my friends surfed all day every day at the world famous Guiones beaches and had a blast. The local Ticos were friendly (as long as you didn't paddle battle for waves) and the local Super (grocery store) and sodas (mom and pop restaurants) were relatively inexpensive and convenient. Villa Canadiense is only a short walk through the jungle to the beach and I woke each morning eager to see the wild dogs and other native critters that inhabited the area. At the Villa, we had everything we needed. We cooked plenty of meals, relaxed by the pool, listened to local music and partied. One night, we even had dinner with the owner of the Villa. She was great. There was plenty of room for all of us and four longboards. Do yourself a favor and DO NOT LOOK AT ANY OTHER PLACES IN GUIONES. Villa Canadiense is the cleanest, safest, economical, and most convenient place to stay. Each day we left a tip for the cleaners, and most of the time, if we didn't specifically tell her to take it, we would return from surfing to find the tip untouched. The staff is like family and made our stay worry-free. We already booked our stay for next year and plan to return there each year to surf and take in the local scene."

  • "We're kinda staying at a mansion"

    "Our group of 10 loved Villa Bellitza. When invited to stay out at a beach party, one member of our group said, "No thanks, I'm kinda staying at a mansion." Most people in our crew surfed throughout the day, and the private jungle path to the beach was an asset. No coordination necessary. Want to surf? Walk down the path, and you're there. On the path we saw monkeys and crabs. At the house, we had visitors including iguanas, a coati, raccoons, armadillos, and birds. The house has plenty of room to spread out, hide from the sun, and hide from one another if necessary. Also, the plethora of outdoor seating and an inviting pool area drew the majority of the crew throughout the day. I didn't think the pool would be important. It was. It is HOT in the middle of the day, and the pool was the lifeline. Town water shortages meant that water was turned off from about 6pm-7am, but you get used to it. Tried to sleep without using the A.C. but eventually caved. The A.C.s do a decent job cooling down the rooms, but especially the downstairs of the junior suite. House is walkable to a variety of restaurants and bars, and makes for a fantastic home base. On a couple of days, I never left "the compound." Ed is a great property manager who helped us to coordinate a chef for the group - meals for the group of 10 were $100 (chicken meal) and $120 (fish) - definitely recommended."

  • A very special trip!

    "We just came back from a wonderful time in Nosara! Casa Madera Mar is a beautiful home and in a great location/proximity to a gorgeous stretch of beach. Just a short stroll to incredible beach sunsets and tide pools. Having the pool to cool off in was perfect. The kids loved the "ring toss" game and ping pong. We felt very safe with the friendly security guards, who would make sure we got home when walking in the dark. We had visits of Howler monkeys, armadillos, raccoons, green parakeets, and there was even an anteater up in the tree in front of the house. So much to do right in Nosara. Don't miss La Luna, a delicious beautiful restaurant the next beach north of Guiones. Tico Nosara Surf shop was the best for board rentals and surf info/lessons. The local people were so lovely and genuinely sweet!"

  • Threes a charm!

    "This was our third trip to Casa de la Playa,and definatly one of the best. We had great weather and perfect wave conditions. The last few days we had some Guanacaste winds which kept the winds blowing for perfect offshore waves for surfing and also kept the crowds down, along with keeping the temps a little cooler. We also checked out Rosies second location which is new and excellent. Try the homemade cucumber salsa. It's great on eggs and on their fish sandwich thats one of the best we've ever had. We also had dinner at Pacifica Azul which is now located at The Gilded Iguana. That was also great ,we actually wish we'd hit there earlier in the trip because of how much fun we had there. But of course we also frequented Il Pepperoni the most. It's right around the corner from the house and it's our favorite, we love it there! El Chivo (which is also right down the road) had a super bowl party and they did a great job. They set up multiple tv's and the place was packed with lots of ex pat's and visiting tourists, almost forgot I was in another country, if it wasn't for the open air restaurant and palm trees. Almost everyday we went to the pool which is beautiful. We would read and swim, it was perfect especially after a surf session. We really enjoyed our stay at this house. It's really set up perfectly for 2 couples and extra family. The water shortage that was occurring while we were there, was really no big deal. We were made aware of it when we arrived and we prepared for it. We had extra water bottles/jugs and filled them every day and did the dishes in the am. when the water was back on. So as I said it was really no big deal we dealt with it and everyone on the trip had a great time. We all look forward to coming back next year and agreed it was probably our most fun and relaxing trip to Nosara yet. Can't wait to come back for an even longer stay, Pura Vida, we love it there!"
