Nosara Beach House
Ranked #14 of 22 Hotels in Nosara
Reviewed 29 February 2016

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.

Walking by trail 5 minutes to the beach. The beach has little cabanas for shade. The proprietor, Leah, loaned us boogy boards. When it gets too hot on the beach, there is a lovely pool to cool off at the Beach House. We walked about 10 minutes for dinner at the Guilded Iguana restaurant, and 15 minutes to the Nosara Bagel place. The rooms are clean, the A/C refreshing and quiet. There is a refrigerator, and kitchenette should you wish to use it. We walked to the Super-Mini for fresh mango and cola for snacks. Overall, very private, and nice for a beach vacation. We enjoyed our visit to Playa Guiones, and the Nosara Beach House is a place we would visit again.

We had a lovely stay at the Beach house. The villas feel totally private and been designed very cleverly to make you feel as though you are the only ones there. The proximity to the beach makes it perfect for surf breaks and other adventure activities. We went zip-lining which is a must do if in Nosara. All in all a fantastic well-run establishment!

We contacted Nosara Beach House on a Saturday morning, with a plan to head to Nosara the same day and to arrive at 9 pm at night. Leah made everything so easy, no formal paperwork / check-in, and waited for us to arrive, helping us with directions. Leah is the perfect host, she understood we were visiting friends and offered my wife and I a late checkout on Sunday! Leah did everything to proactively think of the needs of my wife and I. The property is clean and beautiful, within short walking distance to the beach! We will be back, and we will be staying again at the Nosara Beach House!

Our family had an amazing time staying at The Nosara Beach House. The rooms are comfortable, the grounds are stunning and its so close to the beach! We couldn't have asked for a more perfect place. We made new friends with everyone that stayed as well. And Leah is an excellent hostess!
