  • Location, Location, Location!

    "Our family loved the house and secluded beach of Playa Pelada. This beach has beautiful tide pools and a small blowhole that was fun to check out. It is a short stroll on the beach, from the house, to a lovely restaurant and little beachside bar. We all loved playing in the warm water and watching the sunsets each evening. It is a bit of a walk over to the next beach of Playa Guiones, but definitely doable. It is a 5 minute drive and easy to find parking if you don't want to walk. Sitting on the porch of the house, we saw monkeys playing in the trees and even walking along the power lines. We went surfing, horseback riding and took a family yoga class during our stay here."

  • 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."

  • 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!"

  • Surf and Yoga mecca

    "So my family of five (17, 15, 10 year old kids) rented Casa Radl for a week in March. We all had a great week (minus a little local stomach bug that caught the wife and kids) surfing w/ Agua Tibia surf school , doing yoga at the Nosara Institute, horseback riding up the beach and just chillin' by the pool. Rodolfo the gardner is a saint (super nice guy) and Jackie is a great chef...definitely have her make some fresh guacamole / salsa..."
