The property is well located in the north section of Guiones. Very convenient, especially if you surf. Great space including great shaded decks. Great neighbors too.the whole atmosphere is very friendly.
David is an amazing host and his house is beautiful. He was so helpful from the very beginning of our trip until the last moments. David helped us with things to do in town, where to get the best deals on goods and services, setting up transportation, etc. The house was clean and stocked with all the essentials. It truly was like being in your own second home (but let's face it, it's a likely much cooler home than what we live in at home). The house is also in a nice location, secluded enough to be quiet but walking distance to the beach, market, and many restaurants. Thanks for providing us with a wonderful and memorable trip, David!
We recently returned from an 9-night stay at Casa David in Playa Guiones. Overall, our trip to Costa Rica was really nice and relaxing! The house was well-kept, clean, and new. I would highly recommend for couples, or a group of a few friends as the space is perfectly accommodating for 2-4 people comfortably. Having two bathrooms, a washing machine, two terraces, air conditioning for hot nights, and plenty of natural light throughout were just a few of the fabulous amenities. David is a very nice and easy to talk to person with great advice and tips for exploring Nosara. He is there when you need him, yet he is not intrusive at all. We didn't cook much while we were there but his kitchen is beautiful with stainless appliances and fully-equipped. I would very much recommend this house and hope that others enjoy it as we did. Thank you for your hospitality and we look forward to our next trip!
David's house is fantastic, and quite unlike anything else (that we saw) in Nosara: stylish, modern, open concept. In short, cool. Perfect for a couple (like us) or a small group / family comfortable staying in a totally open concept loft-like place.
Most of the places in Nosara are basic hostel-style accommodation or gigantic luxury estates, neither of which really suits us. This place is the perfect balance: stylish, without overpaying for a bunch of space that we wouldn't have actually used.
David, the host, is a genuinely friendly, hospitable man, ready to help with anything. He's sort of a "man about town" in Nosara, and seems to know everyone. When we needed a van to take us to the airport, he whistled out the door and one of his neighbors, the owner of a taxi company, walked over. After a few friendly words with her, we had our cab booked. That's kind of how it is there: really friendly, and David is at the center of it all.
If you like a dash of modern in the places you stay, and want great service, you'll be very happy with this place.
The lovely house, combined with David's warm personality, made our vacation to Nosara really special. My wife and I had stayed at a hotel in Nosara before, where we kept our activities to the beach and hotel grounds only.
This time staying in David's house, with a rented quad / atv (highly recommended) we really took advantage of Nosara's quirky and delicious restaurant scene, other beaches, new activities, and felt more engaged with the whole town.
David is on or nearby the property most of the time, which we found really helped us to enjoy a safe, clean, easy vacation experience.
I stayed at Casa David for 4 nights with my girlfriend, and we both had a wonderful stay. David lives on the property and is a great host. He helped provide information about the area, and was very attentive to all of our questions. Below are some other highlights of the experience:
House - as you can tell from the pictures, the house is modern, with an open layout. It was great to have outdoor areas to relax, and to hang swimsuits, rashguards, etc. It was over 90 deg F when we stayed, yet the house cooled down nicely at night using the AC unit. Fridge, stove, and bathrooms all worked well and were very clean.
Location - this was a highlight of the stay for us. The house is located off of the main road in Nosara, approximately 500-800M from Playa Guiones. Between the house and the beach there are several restaurants and bars with varying food and atmospheres (Gilded Iguana, Macho, Burgers and Beers, Solo Bueno, to name a few), all within easy walking distance. There is a surf shop (Juan Surfo), and a place to rent surfboards (Nosara Surf Academy) on the way to the beach as well. The beach itself is a long stretch of ocean break, with great waves for all levels of surfers.
David was fantastic! He provided a tour of the property, where to park... Who his neighbors are and useful tips for the traveler in Costa Rica. David gave great suggestions on restaurants, local bars, places to get great views - all of these things enhanced the stay in Nosara.
David was super friendly, gave us loads of advice where to eat and what to do and we had a great, great time @ casa David!
The plae is perfect for a couple, two couples it they are ok with the "open" set up or a family with up to 5 people.
Kitchen is great for kooking and the whole place is supernice, open and surrounded by palmtrees, close to restaurants, foodstore and the beach!
Casa David was exactly as depicted on the air BnB website. It is truly one of the only properties that I've seen with the beautiful modern design. The place was very clean, and had fantastic airflow... And also cooled down well with ac when we used it. If you are familiar with jungle environments, you know that many places feel damp and smell musty. Not so with this place. Very lovely to stay in.
Another factor that was nice is it's location. Great neighborhood to walk through, close to restaraunts to walk to, beaches to walk to, and also monkeys!
Additionally, David stays adjacent to the house in his own apartment, which makes it very easy to get ahold of him...effortless
David was a great host. He gave us great advice on where to eat and what to do. The place was clean and looked exactly like the pictures. It is walking distance from the beach and plenty of other places in Guiones Beach. I'd definitely do it again.
