I came down with several friends to do some surfing in Nosara. Rich and Jess were incredible warm, hospitable and easy to deal with from the get-go. They provided detailed instructions about the place overall; it was super easy to get down to Nosara from Liberia and get all settled into the house. We really enjoyed the open air feel to the house, great for relaxing family-style after our third surf session each day! Super close to the beach; an easy drive or very short walk. It does have some nice creature comforts; strong WiFi and ice-cold AC for the master bedroom. For the surfers, the waves were amazing each day and the line-up was sparsely populated. The town is super low-key and relaxed and I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many mellow people in my life! Highly recommend staying at Rich and Jess’ place over anywhere else, you won’t regret it!
The location of this home is fantastic in terms of getting to the town points of interest, and certainly proximity to the beach is great! This is our second time at this property, and we are looking to staying many more times!
We loved our stay and would definitely return. Rich and Jess were very communicative and accommodating. We highly recommend staying here!
We loved this property. Rich and Jess were extremely helpful in making sure that we planned for our trip. They were both so easy to work with and very sweet. Rebecca the property manager was there immediately when we arrived and would check in occasionally and make sure we were ok. They do have an alarm system and my son accidentally set it off. Security was there in less than 5 minutes so it made us feel very safe. Make sure you brush up on your Spanish!! Dónde esta el supermercado? You may also want to request an English speaking driver when you first arrive to help you get the lay of the land. I recommend renting ATVs to get around and you can ride up to different areas along the coast. We had a blast zip lining, learning to surf, and going to a jungle/mountain excursion. There is so much to do. It's also fun waking up to monkeys at the house! The kitchen is open air which the kids loved. I would recommend for anyone seeking an adventure and getting outside and enjoying nature. We loved Nosara!
Our family of 4 was incredibly lucky to be able to stay at El Santuario for the entire month of June. This home has everything you could possibly need in a vacation home that is immersed in a gorgeous, tropical jungle teeming with amazing wildlife while being only a few minutes walk from an awesome surfing beach, the town and yoga classes. Honestly, a car isn't even necessary because everything you need is close by. We are most grateful to Trish (the previous owner) and Rich and Jess (the new owners) for their all of their suggestions and their great communication both before and during our stay- they really want to make sure you have the best experience possible! When it came time to leave, it was so hard on us all because in that month's time this house felt like it was our home. We highly recommend this home to anyone interested in staying in Playa Guiones and would stay there again in a heartbeat! Thank you Rich and Jess for sharing your slice of paradise!
