Amazing Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This place was absolutely gorgeous. The property managers were extremely responsive and helpful from when we first booked the trip to checking out. We thoroughly enjoyed the fact that the house is away from the tourist beach, but only about a 15 minute drive to the main beaches of Nosara. We were able to meet a lot of locals while wondering around the beautiful black sand beach that surrounds the rental. We went with a group of nine, we only had two cars but we took advantage of the super cheap ATV rentals in Playa Guiones. I will definitely be staying here again in the future and recommend this rental to any one, from a group of friends to a families.

One thing you should know about the house is the hot water does not last, neither does the water pressure. The internet did go out for a few days, but we didn't mind. We also experienced one of the Costa Rican black outs - it only lasted for about 30 minutes and there were enough candles around the house for it not to be a problem at all.

This home is all we hoped it would be. The property management was great and the house really is all that it looks like in the pictures and more. It is a very pretty house and the layout and size was perfect for our family with 3 kids, teens and a preteen. We lucked out and witnessed baby turtles hatching and an arribada. That changes the town for a few days. We didn't surf, but beachcombed, jumped waves, ziplined and explored the sleepy beachtowns in either direction. This area is a special place in the world and I highly recommend this house as a home base. You can walk to the pizza place down the street if you don't feel like cooking, but the home is equipped to do so. Lots of great restaurants within a short drive. We loved La Luna, as you can watch the kids on the beach while you have a cool drink and order lunch. Playa Ostional is a beautiful beach, we had fun watching the sunsets there, the kids loved all the friendly dogs. The house was perfect after a day of exploring, the pool was amazing and we loved watching the monkeys in the trees at sunset. It was such a great trip! We will be back, we are already planning it.

Owner's Response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay in our little slice of Paradise. It's a very special place and it's hard to explain to first time travelers what the experience will be like but you did a great job. It doesn't always happen that you see the monkeys around the house or the turtles on the beach but it sounds like you did all the things that we enjoy when we are there and had a wonderful experience.

Wow, what a find! Beautiful house, gorgeous setting, calm beaches. We couldn't have asked for more! We stayed for five nights and had an amazing time. Ostional beach is just two minutes by car and it is very serene. Honestly, the house was even better than the photos. Thank you for a great stay!

Our stay at was everything we hoped for. The home has a great floorplan and nice furniture. It is very clean and well stocked with essentials. The location is absolutely beautiful with great ocean views and nice breezes. You could not see another home and butterflies and exotic birds were plentiful. The trees even had howler monkeys! The swimming pool and outdoor shower were fantastic.

A short walk to the beach out front yielded great surf and few people. I would recommend this house to anyone.

Fun in the Sun (and Surf!) and Away from the Madding Crowd

  • 5 of 5

This sweet little retreat provided a delightful base for our group of old surf buddies to R&R and socialize poolside after riding super fun, consistent and uncrowded(!) waves out front. Set on a small hilltop overlooking the Pacific, the house is well-situated and private. The surrounding jungle delighted us with beautiful flowers, dancing butterflies, illusive iguanas, and vine-swinging howler monkeys. The home provided all the basic amenities (cooking utensils, refrigeration, fans, air conditioning, games, etc.) that we needed when we were not surfing. And Ostional Beach out front provided all the waves we could ride and a nice black sand shoreline to explore for shells and the famous sea turtles that seek refuge there. While we cooked most of our meals, there are a few worthwhile restaurants and a small market within walking distance . Meanwhile, the magnet tourist town of Nosara is only a 20 minute drive away if you seek a change of scene and wider variety of restaurants, shops, markets, and people-watching.

Ok I'm a bit biased having traveled 3rd world countries since I was a young surf explorer. Third world means there's not a US style grocery store and the typical amenities some folks want, roads aren't smooth, electrical isn't's different. However, that also means you can enjoy something unique and wonderful and off the beaten path. So, if you want a beautiful tropical environment, with a great relaxing place to set up home camp, I recommend checking into this one! A few bonuses for me and my crew were warm water, good waves, plenty of sea life, howler monkeys calling you, iguanas stopping by, a beautiful pool to jump in post surf, and an almost empty beach you can walk to and walk down for miles. Oh yeah and how about those evening sunsets, warm rain, and a couple killer lightening storms while we relaxed with our evening beers. Who needs TV - plenty of time for that at home. I finished a great book! I'd say we had a great time!
