My boyfriend and I are in our early 30’s and stayed at The Nosara Beach House for a one-week vacation. Overall the stay was reasonable relative to what we were paying but we ran into some meaningful hiccups with two things we considered to be essential: Wi-Fi and AC (both advertised as part of the accommodations and much of the reason why we chose this property).
Pros: our room was very clean, the property is quite private, well located with a private entrance to the beach and the house is situated between the two main ‘towns’ where the restaurants and shops are located; when we mentioned that we were having problems with our AC unit Leah (the property manager) was very responsive and immediately called the maintenance person… she also brought and extra fan for us to use in the interim.
Cons: I realize not everyone goes on vacation to Costa Rica needing/wanting Wi-Fi and AC but these were two ‘must haves’ for our trip… the dedicated Wi-Fi literally never worked so we had to use the password for the neighbor’s Wi-Fi (thankfully, otherwise we wouldn’t have been able to access our work emails for seven days); the AC unit didn’t work for two days and although Leah was prompt in finding the maintenance person, I’m not very confident much else would have happened to remedy the situation if her ‘guy’ wasn’t able to fix it; the pool and property is very small which ended up being fine since there were only three additional couples + one family on-site while we were there and no one else used the pool very often… if it ended up where we all wanted to be out at the same time it would have been impossible.
I would recommend this property for any couple wanting a low budget vacation, where they are planning on spending little time on-site and using it more as a crash pad. Things are simple and somewhat ‘rugged’ but for the price, you get a well maintained room/property that is well situated near the beach and great restaurants.
