  • Beautiful stay in great condo, ideal for families

    "We had a great time in The Sanctuary Condominium, we even stayed longer than originally planned! The condo is in perfect shape, clean, nice and with lots of extra towels and linens, which is always good, specially if you do not want to do laundry during your vacation :) The ocean view from the condo is simply breathtaking! The whole property misses a few things, like the bathrooms near the pool, they can not be used, and the gardens, they could be in better shape. We had dinner in Azul Beach Club, its very convenient and nearby. The beach is a short walk/drive away, it is nice but our pick you be the private beach in San Juanillo, the one you access at the side of the soccer field, its simply beautiful! The are also many beaches you can go to by car. You can go to The Sanctuary Condominiums directed by Waze, which makes it easier to find. I recommend this property and would definitely repeat my stay."

  • 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."

  • 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!"

  • Family Adventure of a Lifetime

    "Our family went to Costa Rica looking for adventure--and we found it--with a little help from our new friend, Elias! Casa Ostional is a retreat and truly exemplifies Pura Vida--pure living! No matter what you would want to do from adventures like zip lining, ATV, sunsets, beach/surfing--Elias knows the best places to take you and makes sure you are taken care of. The food is amazing and we felt welcome everywhere we went. Casa Ostional is stunning and we couldn't have asked for a better place to spend time as a family. I would recommend this vacation to absolutely anyone and give it the highest rating!"
