Nosara/Playa Guiones is a special place. Our experience was even better because of where we stayed. The Nosara Beach House is absolutely beautiful. The beauty is magnified by the tranquility that is ever present on the property. I haven't been at peace like I was there in ...forever. It is located such that everything you would want to do is an easy walk...even in the heat of day.The walk to the beach or to "town" or to La Luna for sunset is an enjoyable experience in its own right. (no need for a car). The beach is truly awesome! Being so close to the beach gave us the opportunity to monitor the waves all day so we hit the waves and water at the right time.
A great deal of attention has been invested on the rooms and the grounds. It was above our expectations and reminded me of 5 star resorts. The décor, landscaping and pool area just made for a nice vibe. Leah was available for nice chats and advice on where to go and when. She was very, very helpful without being obtrusive.
Another bonus were the other guests. This was our first time to Leah's. The other guests had all been there multiple times. They were an interesting, international bunch. It was enjoyable to meet with them and swap a story or two.
My goal is to take the family to Nosara Beach House twice a year from this point forward. Don't hesitate to book during the Green season. Enjoy...Pura Vida!

Room Tip: the corner room with outdoor dining is a must for a larger family

We spent 5 nights at Alex's beach house and were very happy with our stay. We are a family with three children and had plenty of room for us all, and with the two washrooms and second outdoor shower our teenagers didn't complain at all! The brief walk to the beautiful beach through the nature reserve was so easy we really felt we were at the beach. The pool was nice too. Alex was on hand to help with anything we needed. As our last stop of a two week trip around the country this was a perfect place to settle in and relax. We had a car but you don't really need one to get around, plenty to walk to, and you could get a rental golf cart or an atv to drive around for fun. We did the local ziplining at MissSky, which was good: very long and high zip lines, a very relaxing yoga class at the Harmony and enjoyed cooking and eating the local fruit. We all tried surfing for the first time which was a lot of fun too, very safe swimming and beautiful sunsets.

My family of four had the pleasure of spending a few weeks at the Nosara Beach House in July. We landed after a few days of road tripping and turned in our rental car in Nosara, hung up our surfboards and called the beach house home for awhile. We rented the 2/2 corner unit with the outside dining table downstairs. Our girls are 7 and 10 and were thrilled with the pool, the private beach path and the air conditioning. My husband is a die hard surfer and surfed every morning and afternoon. I loved the daily housecleaning, the use of a kitchen, the gated/safe property and wonderful owner/hostess and her staff. We had the pleasure of meeting several nice guests during our long stay. We could walk to the store and a few restaurants without exhausting our 7 year old too much. We walked down the beach to LaLuna for dinner several times for dinner(our favorite!). We rented bikes for a few days and even a golf cart for a day. We will most certainly return to this magical little beach house again.

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.
