Christina and Curt's incredible home is elegant while very liveable. The ocean and jungle views are breathtaking. Curt was not home during our stay, but Christina and Gabby went out of their way to treat us like family. As a result, our Christmas holiday was beyond expectations. The breakfasts were yummy, the conversations were entertaining and enlightening, and overall experience was restorative. Thank you, Christina! This is the perfect retreat for anyone who wants to get away from it all without sacrificing comfort and beauty. It takes about 30 - 40 minutes by car to get to Playa Guionnes.

Turtlehouse exceeded our expectations in every way. We stayed for three nights in January 2016. The house and accommodations are clean and beautifully maintained. Curt and Christina were wonderful hosts. We were very grateful for the American breakfasts. Christina is a great cook and really put a lot of effort into preparing delicious breakfasts. As much as the food, we enjoyed the company and conversation. We loved the openness of the Sunset Suite and the freedom to use the pool and patio whenever we pleased. The bed was extremely comfortable. Sunsets were fantastic. The landscape and birds enhanced the experience. The outside shower was very handy when coming back from our excursions. We certainly appreciated Curt and Christina's help with driving directions and sharing their knowledge of the area. We thoroughly enjoyed Playa San Juanillo, swimming in the Pacific, and an early morning walk on Playa Ostional searching for baby turtles. Be prepared for the long dirt road to and from this piece of paradise.

My husband and I spent 3 nights in the sunset suite and it felt like paradise after our difficult drive from the airport. Make sure you ask for a map and directions from Christina and Kurt and don't trust (it took us through some very difficult roads in the mountains...)! The home is very secluded and absolutely beautiful. Unbelievable views from the balcony. 15min drive to the nearest beach, and several top-notch beaches within 45min. Christina and Kurt were wonderful hosts, extremely helpful with directions and advice and fun to chat with. Breakfast is included and is amazing...

Christina and Curt were incredibly welcoming, we felt as if we were family instead of just guests. We were so impressed with our homey and elegant. Their directions were very accurate. Do be aware street signs are not readily available in Costa Rica, our problem not theirs. Our breakfast was delicious prepared and Christina made muffins for my granddaughter for the trip back to San Jose. I had enquires about a turtle tour and Christina had all the information ready when we arrived. Beautiful home in an incredible scenic jungle area with ocean views. Please do not miss out...memories my granddaughter and I will never forget. The only bad part was that we couldn't stay longer.

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.

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!
