“The perfect two-family home”
Reviewed 12 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017
1
person found this review helpful

We stayed in this beautiful home with another family in March, 2017. There were 4 adults and 4 children (ages 8 through 11) and it was the perfect home to spread out and relax. The adults each had a bedroom (1 king and 1 queen) and the kids shared rooms (2 boys in one queen, 2 girls in two twins.). There were 3 bathrooms which seemed sufficient for everyone. The outdoor space was my favorite - a beautiful dining area, bar, and amazing pool. The pool area is small but it was perfect for cooling off and watching monkeys play in the trees above. The upper jacuzzi (only cold water) was great for adults to gather in while kids played below. The grounds keeper came daily to clean debris from the pool and take care of the beautiful grounds. The air conditioning worked great in all of the bedrooms. There wasn't air conditioning in the gathering areas (kitchen, living room, dining room.). There was a back porch and yard with fusbol and a swingset for the kids. The kitchen was well stocked and the outdoor kitchen area had nonbreakable glasses and dishes that we used a lot when eating outside. The furnishings in the house were modern and well made with the exception of the bar stools. They were really comfortable but unfortunately they didn't keep their height when adults sat on them so they would automatically lower to the lowest setting which was below the bar. Plenty of other seating though. There were four beach chairs to take down to the beach, which was great. The beach is a short walk down a gravel road but it does get hot and cumbersome when carrying chairs, surf boards, etc. We ended up renting a 6-seater golf cart for our entire stay which made trips to the grocery, restaurants, and beach much easier and cooler. I highly recommend renting one ($65 per day) or four wheelers if you don't have a car. Beach towels for 8 were provided. The house is fenced in and locked with a security gate - it felt very safe. Restaurants were within walking distance. Most everyone accepted US dollars. Ryan, the owner, was thorough in walking us through the house and telling us about the area. He was kind enough to hire shuttles for us to and from Liberia (highly recommended - top notch drivers both ways and very comfortable.). He also helped us rent the golf cart. He speaks Spanish which made communications between us and others easy. There really isn't anything negative to say about this place...it was clean, modern, new, and comfortable. You'll be very happy you stayed here!

“Pura Vida”
Reviewed 11 March 2017 for a stay in February 2017

This was my third time visiting Guiones beach in Nosara and Casa Costa Rica is my top-rated house rental so far! The house is fully equipped, modern and clean. 8 of us spent a week here comfortably, and took full advantage of the large outdoor patio to enjoy meals, games and the beautiful pool. There was no disappointment here. The house was quiet, private and safe, and perfectly located for easy walks to the beach, restaurants and shops. Highly recommended for trips with family or friends. I will definitely book Casa Costa Rica during my next stay in Nosara. Pura Vida!

“Great home, with easy access to beach and local establishments - food and beverage.”
Reviewed 23 June 2016 for a stay in June 2016

Casa Costa Rica was a great home in the perfect location. We had two families, four adults & three teenagers. House met our needs for comfort, space and location to beach and food. Outdoor patio was nice and the pool was a nice way to wind down after a long day of surfing and excursions.

Gated property, fit our two golf carts easily in the "driveway". Wifi worked well and TV service was a nice touch, although we watched very little.

The Property Manager (Ryan) was accessible and assisted us in organizing some activities by providing good contacts.

“Beautiful, Well Manicured, Clean ”
Reviewed 8 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

Ryan took great care of us with our families extended stay. Walk out the front door into the refreshing pool, swim up bar seating and a jet spa waterfall. Great common areas for large groups inside and out. Casual rooms with the master having a wonderful walk in shower. Located close enough for a quick walk to a few restaurants and the beach front. Landscaping makes you feel as tropical as if you're in the jungle with plenty of shade and with a great breeze it keeps you lounging outdoors every minute of your day. Separate Air conditioning controls in each bedroom let's you recover from even the hottest of excursions. Kitchen ample enough to cook for a large group and in addition you get an outdoor kitchen area with sink, refrigerator, grill and outdoor dining table and bar. Private locked entry door and gate for your automobiles adds that little extra feeling of security, even though you'll never feel it's needed. A great stay at the end of the road!

“Perfect house for a perfect surf trip”
Reviewed 6 March 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This was my first surf trip abroad, and the accommodation at Casa Costa made the 16 day stay exceptionally comfortable. Air conditioning in each room made for some excellent sleep. The pool, boasting submerged stools, was a delight both after an early morning sesh and during a relaxing evening. The kitchen is big, and we made big group dinners on many nights. It's a ten minute walk from the beach. It's a perfect pad to call base and enjoy everything Nosara has to offer.
