  • 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."

  • Wonderful villa, great location, A1 service

    "We stayed here for a week and we had a wonderful time. We were 6 adults and 3 children (3 month-old, 6 month-old, 1 year old). Liris, from Coastal Management, offered a great service. She arranged the rental of cribs for the babies. She answered to all my questions and emails rapidly. I had a few questions during our stay and Liris either answered rapidly or sent someone. She suggested to use Xplore for airport shuttle. They were easy to find at the airport. We stopped by a grocery to buy water, snacks (and beer), got our keys at Coastal Management and then arrived at the villa. It was rapid and I strongly suggest it. At our arrival, the 3 bedrooms were fresh and almost cold! The AC in the bedrooms works fine. Of course, it was a little hotter in the living room area because there is only 1 AC machine in the kitchen but we were confortable even when it was 37 degrees outside. Anyways, we were there to travel, go the the beach and enjoy the pool. The pool is small but perfect. The roof top jacuzzi worked well. We enjoyed it in the morning and at night. We bought briquettes for the BBQ at the grocery and we even enjoyed grilled fish on the roof top. My only negatives points was that one of our key set didn't have to right key to open the gate. Fortunately there is always a guard around to open the gate if needed. Also, the dishwasher needs a tune-up. Tamarindo is walking distance, about 15-25 minutes depending on your energy! It is not a paved road so it can be hard with an umbrella-type stroller. Langosta beach is really near. It is OK but a little bit rocky. They is a beach access just after the Capitan Suizo hotel and on your way, you will find a boardshop with Surf rentals and a coffee shop (near Fish and Cheeses). There is a small store for water and other essentials at about 100 meters from the villa. Also a restaurant called Boca. We rented an SUV and explored different beaches. Avellana was my personal favorite. Tamarindo is a great location with a lot of restaurants. A little bit touristic, not so much "typical" but great with children."

  • Perfect for Two

    "We loved our stay at this house. We were able to walk to the beach (even with large surfboards) as well as walk to various stores and restaurants. Great location. The jungle view off of the back porch was amazing and we saw a lot of monkeys and iguanas right from there. The hammock and boards were a nice touch. The kitchen had everything we needed. Everything was very secure and the owner and managers of the house were all very helpful. If we ever make it back to Costa Rica we would definitely stay here again."

  • Fantastic Experience

    "What a great experience as we had a total of 8 men staying at the house on a surf trip. The house was really clean and comfortable and you cannot beat the location. We actually were not in the house much as we were driving up and down the cost most days looking for surf and adventure. What was truly fantastic was when we got home the house was cleaned, the dishes cleaned, beds made and towels refreshed. Maria the on-site house keeper was great! As well they have a night watchman to ensure nothing goes missing while you sleep. There is a very large enclosed car lot as well. Shawna who overseas the property and makes all the arrangements was excellent! She pre-stocked the house for us with a custom list of items so when we arrived beer was already in the fridge. The location cannot be beat as Playa Grande is beautiful white sand beach and the community is quiet. If you want crazy then a short drive to Tamarindo is all it takes. I highly recommend the house!!! Thanks Shawna and Maria!! Pura Vida!!"
