Recent Guanacaste reviews

  • Vacationing in Costa Rica was a trip of a life time! Specically, Playa Conchal , Guanacaste!

    "We were a family of 6 adults visiting Playa Conchal during the wet season and lived very comfortably in this beautiful, clean 3 bedroom condo. The cozy furniture was very accommodating for us including VERY comfortable beds.The spacious kitchen was well stocked with the necessary cooking utensils including a breakfast bar. The spacious balcony provided us with views of the gorgeous golf course, ocean bay and hilly landscape. The condo with free wifi, sits high on a hill a few miles from the beach but easily attainable by calling the office for a shuttle. Every driver was so friendly sharing interesting facts of the local culture, plant and animal life, being very accommodating to stop the shuttle for snapshots of the howler monkeys, iguanas, views of the bay, or beautiful trees/flowers which painted the path to the beach. Your drop off point was in front of the beach club which boarders the fairly secluded beautiful beach. The beach club provided you with locker/shower rooms, a spa and workout facility, 2 pools and the outdoor eloquent yet causal restaurant, our go to place when making it a day at the beach (gourmet meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner, very reasonably priced) and an upstairs bar overlooking the treetops and ocean bay. The weather was ideal the wk we stayed as it was usually sunny and in the mid 80s during the day (storms at late afternoons) being ideal for basking in the sun on nice lounge chairs, taking walks on the sandy beach, swimming in the translucent turquoise water, kayaking, and paddle boarding all of which are provided through the beach club. While on the beach one has access to massages given for $20.00 an hr under the shade of the trees. A must have if you enjoy massages!! This lovely condo unit also has access to a secluded small pool, patio area and barbecue for a more quiet setting . I highly recommend hiring a driver. We had Dee (Ditier)recommended by our condo's owner, Tom. Dee, a very polite English speaking man who has obvious pride in his country and people, was so accommodating to our needs, desires with great suggestions. I pay tribute to Tom, a fantastic man who helped in planning out our trip. Tom was so easily accessible via email and by phone. He was informative and gave us a preview of what we may expect via pictures sent to us. What to bring: wash machine detergent, deet, day pack for daily outings, causual clothes with hiking footwear, USA currency excepted everywhere. Tap water very safe to drink!"

  • 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!"

  • Absolutely Perfect!

    "Absolutely Perfect! ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ My two daughters and significant other stayed in the villa to celebrate my 60th birthday. The villa is spectacular from the view to the furnishings both inside and out to the layout and to the location. It was nice my daughters each had their own bedroom with very comfortable beds. We enjoyed the master suite with the attached bathroom. The half bath was also very nice to have. The little gardening sink area with the clothes lines were nice to dry towels. It was also nice to have a washer and dryer available. We so enjoyed eating outside at night under the stars after grilling dinner. There were so many comfortable sitting spaces outside both on the lower level and the upper deck. The garden area surrounding the lower patio was beautiful as was the view. The inside furnishings are very comfortable and the villa is supplied with everything you could possibly want. The rental process was smooth and seamless. We did early morning (6 AM) walks everyday walking up and down alot of hills. It is quite a sweaty walk up the hills from the lower pool and Picante, but not too bad early in the morning. Great views walking up even higher from the villa. The howler monkeys entertained us every morning and every evening at the upper pool which is a few villas down from this one. The Bahia Pez Vela map does not show this infinity pool, but we used it more than the lower one. Most of the time we were the only ones in it except for late afternoon when a few others would join us. We had a car which I would recommend so you can go to Father Rooster's and in to Playas del Coco. I would highly recommend this villa! Thank you Emily so much for allowing us to rent your villa!"

  • Wonderful Family Vacation

    "Our extended family of 10 stayed here for a fantastic getaway to Costa Rica. The owner and staff attended to all our needs before we arrived and during our stay - extremely helpful getting us set up to enjoy the location (Playa Ocotal is a good home base) and surrounding attractions. Really enjoyed the Beach club located by Father Roosters and the one by the office more than we expected. Was perfect for the youngest grand kids. Listen to owners recommendations of what to do, and where to eat - they were spot on. Diamante Eco-Adventure Park is about ½ hour away from condo and a must do. The zip lines, ATV rides and animal sanctuary are best in class. The food was excellent and there was more to do then we had time for. We had Coco Tours Shuttle pick us up at the airport and ended up hiring the driver to take on a Palo Verde Boat expedition. This was another highlight I highly recommend. Having a local take you around and show you the sights along the way to and back from your destination allows you to see and appreciate Costa Rica at it's best. We stayed for 12 nights and left wishing we had more time to do repeats of what we did do and other items on lists that will have to wait till next time! I almost forgot to mention how wonderful it was to sit on the balcony at sunrise and sunset to listen to the wildlife and enjoy the view."
