Beautiful, Welcoming, and Relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5
Casa Pepito exceeded all of our expectations and they started out very high. It is a beautiful house in a great setting. We will never forget lounging in the soaking pool and watching the howler monkeys troop by. Erin and Peter were wonderful hosts. We rented the Sugar Shack 1 day, and wish it could have been more - it was so relaxing to be on the beach with hammocks/chairs/and other great amenities. We love Costa Rica and love Casa Pepito - hope we can return!!

We had wonderfull time in Casa Pepito.House is so well built with stunning views. Waking up in Casa Pepito is like you are in National Geographic documentary. Sound of birds, howling monkeys and sun rising, just breath taking. We will really miss it.
We loved Nosara area, so much activities and exploring.Coming back to Casa is anather exciting thing to do. Also doing nothing and relaxing is great option.
Peter and Erin is one of the best host we have met. Very helpful and knowledgeable. They are close by, but
they dont interfere with your privacy.
Thank you Erin and Peter, memories where made for us and our girls in your beautiful house in amaizing

Wonderful home in a great community!

  • 5 of 5
We spent two wonderful weeks at Casa Pepito, enjoying the home and community in our return to the Nosara area. Erin and Peter have built a lovely home that includes everything you'll need while elegantly reflecting the simplicity that is Costa Rica.

About Casa Pepito. The privacy and views are great, meeting our high expectations. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen and bathrooms are modern and well-appointed. And the indoor/outdoor space provides a perfect mix of sun and shade, and the chance to cool down in the dunkin' jacuzzi. The home was spotless and seemed almost new...we were surprised that it has such a robust rental history.

If you want to experience the local culture with most of the pleasures of home, Nosara/Garza is a good choice. The village has the essentials and the locals are friendly. There are plenty of restaurants and attractions very close by. The beaches are long and walkable, with a variety of people and wildlife to watch. And one of our personal favorites, the monkeys, came to visit us at the house a couple of times during our stay. We couldn't ask for more!

Thanks Erin and Peter for being such gracious hosts! We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Memorable stay at Casa Pepito

  • 5 of 5
Outstanding Casa and hosts. From the moment we arrived until the time we had to leave, Erin and Peter were without a doubt, the best hosts we have ever encountered. We are 5 adults that traveled to Costa Rica for a 3 week vacation, and the first time any of us had been to this beautiful country. We stayed at Casa Pepito for 1 week of our vacation (the 2nd week of our trip). The house is awesome, great kitchen, very clean, and tastefully decorated. The view from the terrace and the master bedroom is nothing short of amazing. Casa Pepito is truly a gem, and was our favorite place of our trip. Three of us enjoyed a fantastic massage by Erin (the owner & a very talented masseuse), in fact all agreed, the best we ever experienced.
Playa Garza is a small village with a limited grocery store, a Soda close by, and good restaurants within just a few short miles from the house. The beach at Playa Garza is beautiful and a bonus that Peter and Erin also have a beach shack there, a short distance from Casa Pepito, (for very reasonable daily rental). Picture a beautiful beach, hammocks swung between the coconut trees, lounger padded chairs, and a table set with flowers, enjoying a ‘typical’ Costa Rican dinner from the Soda just down the beach, even delivered to us. The charming beach shack was a bonus with a bathroom, place to change, and a mini kitchen right on this quiet beach. We spent a full day in this paradise swimming, relaxing, and watching the locals surfing. A very memorable relaxing beach day, indeed!!
We were there in November and the roads hadn’t yet been graded, so traveling was a bit of an adventure. We rented a large 4X4 SUV for our trip and we were happy to have made that decision, because some of the potholes were rather large! The road crews were out when we left, grading and repairing the road in preparation for the dry season. We greatly enjoyed our Zipline Tour with Miss Sky, and the Tomcar adventure with Howling Monkeys, sunset on the beach close to Olga’s and our dinner at La Lunas.
Thank you Erin and Peter for all you did to make this a week in Paradise, one we will always treasure.
Bill, Sandy, Elayna, Jan, & Gerry.

Fabulous time at Casa Pepito!

  • 5 of 5
Our family and I stayed at Casa Pepito for a most memorable week. Our host Erin was welcoming, and gracious, paying great attention to every detail for comfort, beauty and hospitality. When I first made the booking, I was hesitant as to wether we needed a 4WD or not. She answered candidly without pressuring, resulting in us renting a 4WD, which indeed made our vacation far more enjoyable than not having one. She even arranged for a beach horseback ride for us, and we were picked up at the door by our guide with the horses! The house is very well appointed, with beautiful furnishings, and luxurious ambience. The photographs do not do justice to the beauty of the location and serenity of the place. We would wake in the morning to the sounds of the surf, the awakening calls of the howler monkeys, and a plethora of bird song. With an outstanding view of the ocean from the 2nd floor, it was wonderful to relax in the hammock and soak it all in. After spending time at the beach in the delightful Sugar Shack, we would come home to cook the fresh red snapper caught by a fisherman, bought at the "Soda" down by the beach, and have a refreshing soak in the whirlpool. We look forward to our return and will recommend Casa Pepito to anyone traveling to Pura Vida Costa Rica!

Private location, views and friendly hosts

  • 5 of 5
After traveling for 20 hours from Washington state, we arrived at Casa Pepito. While the directions there werent what we were use to, we made it without with only one wrong turn. Erin and Peter live in a house just up the hill so they met us and showed us the house. It has a very open feel with a spectacular view of the ocean (or of thunderstorms if one rolls through).

Erin and Peter are both expats (from Canada and Switerland) and are very freindly. They were able to give us a good overview of the area and some good recomendations.

The house itself is cool and has all tile floors, it had a nice breeze and a nice kitchen. It comes with all the dishes and apliences to cook your oen food if you wish. We spent quite a few hours out on the porch watching the clouds and ocean. When the thunder and lighting rolled in in the evening we would sit out and wach as the jungle would light up with the flashes of lightling and feel the thunder pound the sky.

The house was great and we would recomend it to our firends and stay there again.

The only downside is that it is further away from the more tourist type things in Nosara and Samura. (about 15-30 min over a bumpy dirt road) You definetly need a car if you stay here.
However, if being far away from the bustle of tourists and all that movement is what you are looking for, than this is the place for you. We came here for the first 5 days of our honeymoon and it was wonderful. Quite (except for natures sounds) and no crowds. A retreat.

The only downside to the house was that the master bed was a bit on the firm side. Coming from a softer bed it was hard to adjust to the firmness however when its hot out, it is probably good not to be encased in a mattress.

There are bugs in Costa Rica, you can escape them and Casa Pepito is no exception. Midway through our stay there, the ants decided to move wasnt that bad, just leave them alone, go to the beach and by the time you come home they are gone.

Overall the place was great. Thanks Peter and Erin for blessing us and being so generous and gracious to let us stay at your wonderful house. We will not soon forgot our time there. If you are ever up in our neck of the woods and need a place to stay, look us up.
Pura Vida!

Owner's Response: We are happy that you fully enjoyed your stay at Casa Pepito. As honeymooners this place was certainly perfect for you, being in the midst of nature and yet close to the beach and the tourist activities of Nosara. EXCITING NEWS .. the bumpy dirt roads are now partially paved and should be completed by the end of the year. The famous surf beaches of Nosara (Playa Guiones) can be reached in less than 15 minutes and the southern tourist town of Samara in about 20 minutes. It was a pleasure hosting you.


From the Owner

Our gem in Paradise! A piece of Heaven on Earth! After exploring Costa Rica our hearts feel so much at home in Playa Garza. The dry and sunny climate of Guanacaste was priority and the side of the mountain a perfect perch for taking in the simple joy and beauty of nature and the magnificient Pacific Ocean. The vib of the fishing village, 3 minutes from the house, has a charm and laid back feeling that blends with the authentic and humble way of life in Playa Garza.

From the Owner

Casa Pepito was built with dedication and love of detail for quality and simple elegance by Peter. Our favorite área of the house is for sure the huge terrace as 'Living Outside'all year long in this delicious climate is why we love living here. A comfy hammock to chillax or a refreshing dip in the jacuzzi on a hot summer night. We are living our dream with gratitude everyday.
