We allow our guests all the privacy they want but are readily available for directions, recommendations, and whatever else they need. We do like to hear how their day went (especially nature related sightings like whales, monkeys, turtles, etc.).
Our neighborhood is located in Finca Los Suenos which has 85 acres of private wildlife refuge. This gives one a sense of tranquility that other nearby areas lack.
It is best to have your own transportation as the public transport is minimal.
No smoking in house or pool area, no glass near pool, children must be supervised by parents in pool, no wet clothes on indoor furniture, guests must close community gate when entering or leaving, laundry service for extra charge. Kitchen is not available for guest use.
From the moment we arrived we felt very welcome in their home (which is gorgeous). There are so many positive things to say about staying with Christine and Curt. First and foremost they are some of the nicest people ever. They are very warm and welcoming. They cooked some of the most delicious breakfast that we had on our trip. The room was beautiful and there is a lovely spot near the pool to watch wildlife (so many different birds, and some monkeys too!). We picked some figs from their tree which were delicious. The dogs Kira and Tiki were adorable and very friendly. We were only able to stay a few night but they made sure that we had a great experience. Christine and Curt were really helpful in helping to plan out things to do in the short time in Ostional. One of our favorite experiences in the area was going to the beach at night to watch the sea turtles lay eggs, and eat a delicious meal while watching the sunset. If you are going to anywhere near Nosara or Ostional, stay at the Turtlehouse!
This was an awesome place to stay. I went with my parents and we were welcomed after arriving at the house with good directions on the tough to find location. The room is upstairs and is essentially the master bedroom and has its own master bath with an amazing view and private balcony. Curt and Christina were very accommodating and have an amazing house. They made really good food and helped us reserve a zip line trip as well. I would highly recommend staying here for anyone that is looking for a relaxing and somewhat secluded place to stay. I would stay there again if I go back. It was great to hang out with them and get to know them. Thanks Curt and Christina!
Curt and Christina's is one of the most extraordinary homes I've ever seen--it's beautifully-appointed and has an incredible view of the ocean. It's also set in the treetops, so it's the perfect spot for seeing birds and monkeys playing. More than their luxurious location, what made our stay with Curt and Christina so lovely was their hospitality. They were incredibly attentive and made sure we had everything we needed to get the most out of our stay in Ostional. We were glad to have their recommendations and their company.
Turtlehouse B&B is the perfect Costa Rican getaway. We didn't feel we were on vacation until our stay here. It's a piece of paradise. Christina and Kurt were warm and welcoming, and we felt immediately at home. They were informative, knowledgeable and truly know how to bring out the full potential of this area of Costa Rica. The breakfasts were amazing, the location, the swimming pool, the rooms - everything was perfect! We specifically went to this area to see turtles, and they knew when and where to go. Turtlehouse is a bit off the beaten track, but if you're driving your own car, this is well worth the drive. You simply have to go here.
We had a fantastic stay at the Turtlehouse B and B. Curt and Christina could not have been better hosts! They were so warm and welcoming, we immediately felt right at home in their beautiful house. Our first day there, they arranged for a surf lesson for us at a beach down the road and also made reservations for us at a fantastic restaurant just around the corner from the house. We had a wonderful surf instructor from Juan Surfo’s in Playa Guinoes (neighboring beach) and a dinner at Luna Azul that rivals the NYC restaurants that we are used to! (After a week of rice and beans, we were certainly ready for a change!) We woke up the next morning to a fantastic homemade breakfast and then were off to a paddle boarding tour which Curt and Christina also arranged for us. We spent some time afterwards relaxing on the porch in comfortable rocking chairs and just taking in the fantastic view that the property has to offer. We had another wonderful breakfast the following morning— Omelets made with fresh herbs and veggies right from Christina’s garden, so delish! After that we sadly had to leave to catch our flight……but we would have loved to spend more days there! It is such a nice, relaxing location for a getaway, with top notch accommodations! There are endless activities for an adventurer and also a relaxing atmosphere if you are looking for a more low key vacation. We will definitely return as we loved Curt and Christina, their lovely home, and this very special area in Costa Rica! Many thanks again.
Curt and Christina are amazing hosts. They made us comfortable in every way possible. They were very accommodating to our schedule for breakfast and made unbeatable meals with lots of variety and great coffee!
Their home is an amazing place to stay if you enjoy a relaxed, out-of-the way destination. They gave us great recommendations for 4 different beaches to enjoy, hiking on their property (to see the monkeys), and a paddleboard tour. They went out of their way to call ahead and make sure we had good experiences at the local restaurants.
We stayed in the upstairs suite which is very private and has a balcony with perfect sunset views and an indoor/outdoor shower overlooking the jungle! The house and rooms are extremely clean and comfortable. Their pool and grounds are also great for relaxing and watching the wildlife.
We'd highly recommend staying with these delightful hosts!
It's hard to summarize how fantastic Christina and Curt are. Their home is endlessly beautiful inside and out and in a simply breathtaking setting. As soon as we arrived we felt incredibly welcome and comfortable. The banana bread muffins that literally came right out of the oven were an exceptionally welcome treat.
Everywhere we went in Costa Rica we enjoyed very good food. But the breakfasts that Christina and Curt prepared for us were the absolute best that we had. Every morning we left for our adventures not only full but smiling. Eggs, muffins, waffles, fresh fruit from their backyard, sausages, rice and beans… incredible.
One afternoon we were running a little late for some horseback riding (I highly recommend Playa Ponies if interested) and didn't have time to stop somewhere for lunch. No problem. We were very kindly offered some homemade pizza. The two of them even helped us sort out some flight concerns and gave us some fantastic local tips. Essentially every step of the way we were taken care of.
Just down the road from the Turtlehouse is the Luna Azul restaurant. It's incredibly convenient with wonderful food and a great people as well.
In the four days we were there I developed an incredible bond with the location and it was one of the hardest places I've ever visited for me to say goodbye to. But somehow I expect that I'll be saying hello to it again in the future. Can't thank the two of them enough for begin such a wonderful part of our trip.

I am a lover of new places, travel, food , and meeting new people. My husband and I took on this great adventure to move to rural Costa Rica and retire in the green of the jungle and in proximity to specular and isolated ocean beaches and be near one of the most important yoga communities in the world to receive therapy. We built a lovely and large home which now we would like to share with others. I love to cook and cooked professionally for some time. There is always something fresh and delicious on my table. Special menus are fun!
