I have been investing and creating vacation dream homes for over 30 years. My experience extends to many resort locations throughout the US and now Costa Rica. The Beach House was a year in the making, the result is everything we had hoped for. It is truly an exceptional property.

Rick Wilkins purchased this townhome in 2008

Of all the choices this property was the very best location. Along with direct access to the beach everything I would expect from a vacation to a Costa Rican beach destination was right at my fingertips. There are great restaurants, activity centers, surf schools and a grocery store within a stones throw of our front door. You can easily be there a week or more without the need of a car. Bicycle and all-terrain vehicle rentals are within a block. There was simply no better location.

The Beach House is in the middle of all the activity of Playa Guiones, yet when you are sitting by the pool you feel completely removed in a tranquil setting. You are surrounded with beautiful vegetation, it's like being in a jungle and at the beach at the same time. The doors open up to the pool area, making it feel like a big outdoor living room. The upstairs terrace has a big hammock for reading or taking afternoon naps. There is an outdoor pool and bar (Rancho) where you can entertain your friends or family. There are three villas, making it possible for a groups of 12 to 18 people. Please see our other listings 449027 and 590873. You can make this your own private family retreat. To go along with this we have a great cook to prepare your meals and serve you out by the pool.

FABULOUS DESTINATION AND VILLA!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time to Nosara and the Beach House, and we had a fabulous time! All of the previous reviews are accurate. This property is beautiful, comfortable and convenient to everything. We were unable to meet Rick, as he was away (but a pleasure to deal with via e-mails and always available by phone) but his stand in caretaker, Sara, was wonderful and went out of her way to attend to all of our needs, as did Clara and Vicente. Our only regret was that we had to leave after eight nights! My family (my husband and I along with our two sons ages 11 and 12) had such a wonderful time. We are already discussing returning, hopefully in the near future. We truly loved the Pura Vida!

WE LOVED IT.

  • 5 of 5
Super close to the beach. Great set up. A/C worked well. Internet was pretty good, not for streaming movies, but perfect for checking email etc. Rick was wonderful with recommendations/suggestions. We felt safe. Pretty quiet. Washer and dryer was a nice bonus. Hiring Carlita was a great for fresh salsa, guac, breakfast, juices etc. We were super happy staying here. Can't wait to come back.

A GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
My wife and 3 year old son just finished spending a week at the Beach House. What a great set-up. The location is perfect, a two minute walk to the beach and located close to numerous restaurants. Absolutely no need for a car. Our cousins came to visit with their 10 month old for a few nights and even with six of us, there was plenty of room to lay about. The pool and rancho area are awesome. The caretaker was always around making sure the place was in top shape. We had Clara, a local chef, make us an amazing meal in one night, something I would suggest doing. Rick, the owner, was super helpful, always having ideas of things we should do and just generally helping us out any way he could. If you are looking for a safe, fun, perfect location to spent some time at, this is the place. Thanks again for a perfect week.

THE PERFECT PLACE

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Beach House Nosara, and can't say enough about how much we absolutely loved everything about it!

To begin with, Rick the owner, is such a generous and kind man. He made us feel welcome and well cared for from the moment we arrived and throughout our stay. Next, Vicente, who takes care of the grounds, was there every day, and through his thoughtful and meticulous attention to detail, helped to create a true paradise- not to mention, he was filled with rich knowledge that he thoughtfully shared about the plant and animal life of the area. Also, Clara cooked delicious meals for our family- making our vacation absolutely stress free- and leaving us with enough left overs to last us for days.

The villa was beautiful, with rich décor, attention to detail, and well-equipped with everything we needed. The grounds were stunning, and the pool and pool bar were perfect. Our kids made fresh tropical fruit smoothies at the bar; we floated on the rafts in the pool; found endless wildlife right in our own backyard (monkeys, squirrels, iguanas, lizards, birds, crabs, etc); and relaxed on the hammock.

The location was perfect. We loved everything about Playa Guiones. The stunning beach, with excellent surf was just a short walk from the house. The town was small, the people were friendly, and the restaurants were incredible- such good food. We felt like we were away from it all, but still had all we needed just a short walk outside our door.

Our trip to Costa Rica is one for the memory books for our family, but it is truly The Beach House and the amazing people who make it the special place that it is, that we will remember the most. Not only will we be back, but next time we are coming back with our family/friends- and turning it into another magical experience that we will never forget.

Thank you Rick! Nosara Beach House and you will forever be in our hearts- and future travels!

THE BEACH HOUSE- WHAT AN INCREDIBLE PLACE!

  • 5 of 5
The Beach House far surpassed our expectations. Although we have visited Costa Rica several times in the past, it was our first time in Nosara, and it certainly won't be our last. The beaches here are excellent, the waves were good, and there are plenty of nearby places to experiences the wonderful natural history of Costa Rica. The variety of birds around the Beach House grounds was amazing: trogons, motmots, flycatchers, wrens, hummingbirds and many other species were seen daily. After the morning surf, we relaxed in the beautifully landscaped pool, enjoying the Cinnamon and Rufous-tailed Hummingbird with the occasional Fork-tailed Emerald. Whether it was surfing Playa Guiones, snorkeling at Playa Pelada, birding the refuge at nearby Lagarta, or turtle watching at Ostional National Park, it was always nice knowing your were coming back to the Beach House. The Beach House is fully equipped with every amenity you will need. Great kitchen, beautifully decorated rooms with balcony and outdoor patio. Rick Wilkins has done an excellent job ensuring that you will have a wonderful stay at his beautiful place. We can't wait to return!
