About Rick Wilkins
I have been investing in and creating vacation dream houses 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 Villa in 2008
Why Rick Wilkins chose Playa Guiones
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 a car. Bicycle and all-terrain vehicle rentals are within a block. There was simply no better location.
What makes this Villa unique
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 or 16 people. Please see our other listings 445649 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 and bar.

Amazing stay in June 19 for our two weeks in Playa Guiones
Overall this was an amazing place! There are three units in the same complex, they have local English speaking management/concierge that checks you in and helps you navigate your stay in and around Nosara...both the owner and concierge were quick to address even minor concerns and ensure our stay was amazing...air conditioners worked, place was secure with gate locks and alarm systems...maintenance and property staff( super nice guys) were on site daily to clean pool and courtyard. House was well equipped in towels and kitchen tools. These villas are approx. 150 yards to the beach via road and just FYI no one is directly on the beach in this part of Costa Rica...but this beach is by far the most beautiful … lots of surfing at high tide and swimming at low tide...plenty of restaurants and stores near by...we had a car but you could get by with just walking and there are plenty of golf cart and ATV rental places as well. A few tips: bring deet...I tried the organic stuff and it just doesn't work, we needed a lot of it...overall one of the best rentals we've had in CR...enjoy
Our Stay At The Beach Housr
We had a lovely stay at the Beach House! It was beautiful there! The accommodations were very comfortable and it was very good to be so close to the beach! Colleen was very responsive and helpful to all of our questions throughout our stay! We enjoyed our vacation and look forward to the next time when we can return! Most definitely we will return in the future!!
Thanks for the very nice review, we enjoyed having you stay with us and hope to see you again soon!
Excellent stay at the Beach House
Recently stayed 11 days at the Beach House and had a great time. The location is excellent with its proximity to the beach, restaurants, rental shops, etc. The property is well maintained and comfortable and the pool is steps outside your patio door. My wife appreciated the amenities like plenty of beach towels, a very well appointed kitchen, good A/C and a washer and dryer. Great property and location. We will definitely try to book the Beach House again when we return to Nosara in the future.
We had a wonderful stay at the beach house! It's a short walk to the beach, shops and places to eat. The grand (re)opening of the Gilded Iguana, right across the street, was on our second night there. There was live music on the lawn.
The Beach House was very clean and had every thing we needed. We cooked most of our meals and ate on the patio. We spent our days between the beach and the pool. We all LOVED the pool! It was perfect! It is nicely shaded in the hottest party of the day. We made friends with the neighbors in the other units and it felt like a little community. We all felt very safe in the Beach House. The locks are all heavy duty and the custom safe in our unit was nice to stash our money and passports during our stay. Colleen, the property manager, was very nice and welcoming. We saw her a few times around town after she checked us in and she stopped by for a visit when the power went out. We didn't have any issues during our stay, but we felt well taken care of. The Beach House was the perfect start to our Costa Rican vacation! I highly recommend staying here!
Nice Home and Close to everything
We loved staying here at the Beach House. It was well managed and everyone was very responsive when we had questions or something needed to be taken care of. With the beach house being close to the beach, it was easy to get down to get my surfing fix in each day.
Perfect location and super accomodating
The Beach House could not be in a better location! Well, that is if you plan...as we did...to surf and spend most of our time on the beach. Rick has thought of everything. The entire property is very well secured and you definitely feel that your belongings are safe staying here. Everyday there are ground keepers taking care of the property and landscaping, and it shows. It's just beautiful. The pool is perfect after a morning of surfing in the hot sun. And the perfect area to relax, read a book and drink fresh coconut water from the guy on the corner that sells them everyday. For warning that the bugs kind of rule around these parts. It's the jungle after all. Our place got pretty buggy every evening, despite the place being sprayed for them. It was a little annoying, but nothing Rick could have controlled. We used a lot of the spray that was provided in our place. AND we asked Luz to have the cleaning girls come by one morning and clean up the dead bugs on our floor.... they cleaned the entire place!!! Thank you Luz. We weren't expecting that! Guiones is a special place and we can't wait to visit again soon!
