We spent 2 weeks in this beautiful vacation home and had such a great time! The home is situated on a beautiful hillside with breathtaking views of the ocean, peaceful, safe and secure. Erin and Peter were amazing hosts, greeting us as we arrived, providing us recommendations on the area and were always there to help with anything, although, there was little we needed as the property was perfect!
Erin and Peter are beautiful souls and we are looking forward to staying here again on our next visit to Costa Rica!
If you are looking for a relaxing and beautiful place to stay while exploring the amazing beaches of Nosara, we highly recommend staying at Casa Pepito!
My wife and I spent a week at Casa Pepito at the end of November 2017 while celebrating our ten year anniversary. This was our second trip to the Nosara area but it was our first experience staying in Playa Garza.
The House: Casa Pepito is a beautiful house perched on a hill with a phenomenal view of Playa Garza. The living area, two bedrooms and two full bathrooms were more than enough space for the two of us as well as for our friend who visited us for a few days from San Jose. The house is clean, safe and well maintained. The kitchen had everything we needed to prepare meals and we enjoyed eating breakfast looking out to Playa Garza and the Pacific Ocean beyond. After spending a few days in the jungle, we were happy to have the opportunity to launder our clothes using the washer and dryer found in the home. Casa Pepito has numerous windows and doors that are meant to be opened to take advantage of the breezes afforded by being in the hills above Garza. Opening up the house also provided us with the opportunity to fully experience the amazing natural surroundings of the house. We heard howler monkeys every day we were there and saw them numerous times as we relaxed in the refreshing plunge pool.
Playa Garza: Playa Garza is the beach just south of Playa Guiones. Unlike Guiones, Garza is not known for surfing. Rather, it is quiet and the ocean is mostly calm, especially at low tide. In our time there, we found Playa Garza to be gorgeous, exotic and mostly deserted. We loved spending time there and especially enjoyed having lunch and Imperials at Soda Garza, right on the beach. It takes about 15 minutes to get to Guiones from Garza as you slowly traverse the bumpy unpaved road in between the two. However, the drive is a beautiful adventure in itself and we enjoyed the journey and we were always happy to return to the comfortable surroundings of Casa Pepito.
The Owners: Leading up to our trip, Erin and Peter were easy to communicate with and happy to answer any question that we had. Erin and Peter live just up the hill and, while we did not have the opportunity to meet Peter during our stay as he was out of town, we did meet with Erin. Erin was respectful of our privacy but also very kind and willing to give us suggestions about a place that she clearly loves. We were happy to have the chance to interact with her.
Bottom line, we had a great experience, from start to finish, with Casa Pepito and would highly recommend it.
This was our first visit to Costa Rica and we were very impressed with the personal welcome by Erin and Peter. The home left nothing to be desired as it was clean and had all home necessities to experience 'Pura Vida'! Peter came by one evening and shared his experience of local attractions which helped us make the most of our stay in Nosara.
Our stay was only 3 days and 2 nights too short a stay to as we truly enjoyed the cozy character of Casa Pepito. The tranquil wildlife on the patio was so relaxing after a full day of fishing or beach exploration.
Our stay in this lovely villa made for a memorable vacation for us and our hope is to be able to visit again!
This lovely villa with a view of the Pacific-Playa Garza, was an excellent find---clean, well provisioned for our arrival with fruit, flowers, and everything we needed for a short 3 day, 2 night stay. Our hosts, Erin and Peter, welcomed us on our late arrival, helped us order pizza and salads for home delivery, got us settled into their beautifully furnished villa, and oriented us as to attractions for our stay in Nosara. Peter & Erin invited us over the second night for happy hour and we got better acquainted with their very special property, with multiple offerings for groups of all sizes. This is a must-return for us. And, we met some lovely owners who go out of their way to enjoy their property and the area. Erin is a massage therapist and we intend to take advantage of a massage on our next trip to Casa Pepito. Our guests got close up views of the howlers in the trees down the road from the property, and many bird species to admire off the balcony.
Peter & Erin were amazing hosts, always nearby when we needed them, but never intrusive. They even invited us up to there house (just up the hill) for sundowners on our last evening. We feel like we made new friends. Erin even spared some time to give us a what to do in the area session.The Villa is quite simply stunning , with views across the native bush to the sea. We could watch the wildlife in front of us and just soak up this beautiful piece of paradise. The Villa was immaculate and everything our family of four could wish for. We can not recommend Peter & Erin and their beautiful Villa enough. We will be back. Mark & Diana
We are just coming back from Casa Pepito. We had the most wonderful weekend. The house is perfect and fully equipped. The location is amazing: in a very paceful area and very close by car to the main beaches Garza, Guiones and Pelada. Peter and Erin are the best hosts. We fully recommend it to everyone that wants to experience the best of Nosara !!!!
We are happy to have had the opportunity to live in such a gem of a home for the past 3 years. This luxury house has everything you need to be totally comfortable and cozy. It has a gorgeous view to the bay of Garza and is nestled in a very tranquil natural environment. The location was perfect for all of our needs like, shopping, fishing, beach, surfing, gym, restaurants and more. Erin and Peter are wonderful hosts and were always attentive to our needs and the ongoing care of the house and garden. We are sad to go as we now must relocate, thank you so much guys, we're really happy to stay for so long in your sweet home.
