Recent Nosara reviews

  • A beautiful tropical oasis

    "Casita del Mar was the perfect choice for our family to enjoy some rest and relaxation. The garden is beautifully maintained with wonderful tropical landscaping that surrounds a lovely infinity pool. There are wonderful patios that are covered and beautifully furnished. The interior is very comfortable , nicely decorated and super clean . We were a family of four but the house is so spacious we easily could have had 8 and been comfortable.The kitchen is well stocked and a cooker's delight! On top of all of this the location was perfect. It is just a few minutes from the beach and restaurants. Nosara itself is just beautiful and relaxing but if chosen there are many activities available. We so enjoyed monkey and tropical bird watching. The Costa Rican people are very kind and friendly. The management team for Casita del Mar were very helpful in that they grocery shopped so when we arrived everything was stocked for a minimal fee. They offered a free concierge service to arrange zip lining and arrange for a golf cart. We will visit again and will look no further then Casita del Mar!!!"

  • Beautiful, Affordable Home with Spectacular Views!

    "My husband and I stayed at this beautiful property for one week in April during the dry season and it was truly not long enough. While the roads leading to Nosara are rough and challenging, they have kept the small towns of Nosara and Guiones tucked away and undeveloped. It truly is an escape away from it all. The house was well-equipped, well-maintained, and offered at a very reasonable price. The wildlife (Howler monkeys, coatimundi, array of birds, and more), sunsets, and views of the Nosara and Montana Rivers as they join the Pacific Ocean were beyond spectacular. We loved relaxing around the beautiful, warm infinity pool. The beaches are gorgeous and we enjoyed visiting Nosara, Peleda, Garza, Guiones, and Samara. Peleda and Guiones do not have much shade but there are palm trees on the others. There's a small bike shop in Guiones that rents beach chairs, umbrellas, and coolers. We highly recommend hiking the trails at the entrance to the Biological Reserve, which is very close to the house near the Nosara River and the trails right near the house that lead down to Playa Peleda. We found a wide array of pretty shells and huge sand dollars hiking down Nosara Beach at low tide. We took surfing lessons on Guiones, which was perfect for beginners at low tide. We enjoyed eating breakfasts at Cafe Paris in Guiones, the local tico-style food at Rancho Tico, and dinner at La Luna (get the Greek humus appetizer - yummy!). While Carl and Cathy were not at the house during our stay, we felt comfortable with Alex and Alejandro, who checked in on us and were there if we needed anything. Don't forget to feed their family of goats across the street. We highly recommend the house!"

  • Great house in a perfect location

    "My wife and I recently stayed in Casa Clarita with our young son, and it was the perfect house for a small family to enjoy all that Playa Guiones has to offer. The house is located within walking distance of a number of restaurants, shops, and other businesses, but it is back from the main road and feels very secluded. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Clarita, and we would recommend it to others visiting Playa Guiones."

  • 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."
