ATTENTION SURFERS: Playa Guiones is a prime base for novice and advanced surfers. Please look at a topographic map of Guiones showing a wave-containing sculpted beachfront configuration from Punta Guiones to Punta Pelada.

Guiones beach has almost 3.5 miles of pristine golden sand beach with warm waters . It has won the 'Bandera Azul'( Blue Flag) International award for being one of the most pristine and ecologically well-managed beaches in the world.Guiones' s Pacific sunsets are always breathtaking,and well-attended by surfers and interesting people from all over the world.

Again, Guiones has one of the most consistent Beach Breaks in Costa Rica with Rideable surf over 300 days a year.There are peaks with waves for beginners to advanced surfers.Guiones has a sand-bottom gently sloping beach break with no rocks or reef. Guiones is great for beginners of all ages from 5-75 years . The beginners do all their learning surfing in the whitewater of the shorebreak with no rocks or reef.

There are 3 surf schools next to and a short walk from us-- including Corky Carroll's Surf School next to us; and Juan Surfo's Surf School and expanded well-stocked surf supply store 175 yards north of us. Around us are many fine-dining and casual restaurants,shops,and a well-stocked Mini-Mart grocery store with fresh produce,vegetables, and meats-- are all within 200 yards of us.

A few fine-dining restaurants an easy short walk from us : the Harmony Hotel restaurant, and also its **Organic SaladSandwich-Juice Bar**( 4 minute walk south from us...see map=down the dirt refuge frontage road by Nosara Travel) ; and the close fun, very friendly and reasonable Gilded Iguana open daily -7:30AM-10PM 100 yards north up our street=Ericka manages it ,and her or her staff may help arrange local events and tours.

**A car is not a must for some of our guests because of the availability of fairly -priced Airport transport services, taxis,many places for rental of cars,quads,bikes,etc.

*** Abel Avila's Nosara Van Transport Service may be able to help you with Airport Transportation.Abel is a charming, respected, reliable , and winsome,English-speaking and writing local Nosara business- man who owns two minivans each transporting Ten(10) people and gear; and has access to a friend's van--- a van transporting 20 people to and from Nosara to either the San Jose(SJO),or the Liberia airports. Our past guests and friends have considered his prices fair. Email:abelavila1@yahoo.es ; Cell phone= 011-506-8812-8470 to check on availability,etc .He is a solid gentleman.

Nosara is a destination for not only Savvy Surfers,but for a special group of people that want to get away from it all while still enjoying fine dining,surf sessions and a day of Yoga at world-famous Yoga retreats.It is bordered by wild untouched beaches to the north and south, Our area is known for Nosara's strong committment to sustainability,healthy living and conservation of our natural habitats and God-given gifts..

Again,our Villa Familia Feliz Tropical Retreat is located on Guiones Beach. It is a secluded, peaceful, private, professionally landscaped retreat with mature tropicals,sharing a fenceline with the Hotel/Restaurant Casa Romantica ..

Pelada Beach is a 10 minute easy walk above North Guiones beach. Pelada is a smaller pink sand beach with black lava rock,a blow hole,and many tide pools for swimming and snorkeling in front of Olga's Tico Bar and the La Luna seashore Bar/Restaurant.

A walk north of Pelada are Playa Nosara and Playa Ostional-- black sand beaches above the mouth of the Rio Nosara- a Bird/Wildlife area.

**Playa Ostional is proclaimed the #1 nesting site in the world for one of the 8 Sea Turtles---the 'Olive Green Ridley' Sea Turtle**.Thus all the named beaches are part of the famous National Ostional Turtle/Wildlife Refuge and the 'Beaches of Nosara'.

Our Guiones Familia Feliz is 400 yards from Guiones-town. Guiones-town is 7 kilometers (4 miles) before the village of Nosaratown.

Don Jorge (Genl Mng)= speaks fluent English and is the over 15 year owner of our Nosara Pool Service Inc.); Yolanda and their families help us take care of our Villa Familia Feliz...and your family.They will wow you with their 'tico-tica' graciousness, I believe.

Guiones-town is about 200 yards past the World-Famous NOSARA YOGA INSTITUTE. Guiones-town is centered by the Cafe de Paris/French Bakery and the National car rental office.

Restaurants we recommend to you are : the ***Gilded Iguana=close=100yards north of us,,*** Rosi's Tica Cafe, **Harmony Hotel restaurant & separate **Organic Salad-Sandwich-Juice Bar=close=100 yards south , *Giardina Tropical rest-Pizzeria=close, *Dona Ana's Cocina -Seafood-Garza ,***new Nomad Restaurant (French-Moorish food=Sophia=elegant,romantic) , ***Rancho Tico,*Cafe de Paris,*Marlin Bills, and ***Pizzeria Basilico.

Undesirable accommodations for a family vacation

  • 1 of 5
This is not a home and not conducive for a family vacation. This was my 3rd trip to Costa Rica and the only time I was disappointed with accommodations. The owner knew this was a family vacation and had ample opportunity to let me know this is not a home. It is like a hotel with 4 separate doors inside each was a bedroom and bath and no adjoining rooms. There is no indoor kitchen or living room. A very small refrigerator inside one bedroom. There is an outdoor kitchen but the mosquitoes are so bad you cannot stay outside. There were raccoons on the patio and we did not take food out there. We didn't have food with us. Each door has 2 deadbolts and a barred door. 1 set of keys is for 2 doors on one end and another set for 2 doors on the other end. Your family has to stay together or someone isn't getting back in. The doors are self locking so if you exit onto the patio you lock yourself out. One key broke off in the lock because it was so hard to turn. The tile around the pool is so slippery you could get hurt. The pool is the size of a kiddie pool or hot tub. You cannot swim in it.
There were ants and spiders inside the home. Cracks in the walls. The pedestal sink in the bathroom was wobbly and I thought the top would fall off. During the rainstorm there was a leak coming through the light fixture over the bunkbed. We arrived at 6 pm on November 1 and left the next morning at 9 am. The owner has refused to refund my money.. I told him I would pay for the night we stayed.I filed a formal complaint with homeaway. Don't ruin your vacation staying here. I cannot select 0 stars or I would. I will book thru homeaway again although I be more selective.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review Lorainne C.
My response to your statements -
*1)- You stated that you all were surprised that our Villa Familia Feliz (VFF) was NOT ONE SINGLE ENCLOSED HOME....and THERE WERE NO ADJOINING BEDROOMS. You must have looked at our website before you reserved all of VFF. We have 10 of the 16 photos on each of the VRBO,and the Homeaway websites of VFF depicting each of the separate units.Below each of the photos is a caption with a detailed description. of the four separate Bedrooms ; and the fact that the Third Bedroom and Suite area and the Fourth bedrooms are connected and adjoining rooms separated by a door. Anyone who has viewed my VRBO or HOMEAWAY website before they wanted to reserve VFF can see that it is is an OPEN HOME. The Guest reviews on the website have also described VFF open-concept design appeal for their families.
*2)- The Pool photo caption states that the pool is small and the measurements are 9 x 14 feet, which is correct.
*3)- You stated that there was only one small refrigerator and no microwaves in VFF. No...there are 3 large refrigerators, one small refrigerator and two microwaves in VFF,and these appliances are described in the photos and in the "Amenities " section of the website. I just visited my VFF Nov 15th,2014 with my family, and everything was present and in good working order.
*4)- The large outdoor kitchen is shown in 3 of the photos with detailed descriptions in the captions.as well as in the "Amenities " section.
*5)- There was a small leak by the roof satellite ,but It was fixed immediately by Don Jorge.
*6)-The VFF Cancellation Policy was agreed to by both parties. Your last-minute cancellation of 2 weeks for your stated reasons were not deemed refundable.
*7)- None of the door locks are self-locking not permitting re-entry ; and no key was found broken in any of the door locks?
*8)- I was just at VFF two weeks ago, and there were no ants,insects, and at the time not a single mosquito perceived neither inside,nor outside in any areas.
*9)- The sink that you describe is very solid and stable in Bathroom #4.
*10)- The keys for the 4 bedrooms and the bedrooms are marked with the numbers... 1,2,3,and 4. At night the key numbers might need a small flashlight or light.
I was advised by one of the Nosara Taxi men your group decided to leave the " Beaches of Nosara " area to go to Jaco Beach closer to San Jose and the airport
Thanks again for your comments.
Respectfully submitted,
Robert

Tropical paradise, the essence of PURA VIDA

  • 5 of 5
I echo the sentiments of all the other reviewers as far as how special a place Familia Feliz is for your Costa Rica destination. The room, the outdoor shower and kitchen and the staff are awesome. There is plenty to do here to fill a week without leaving the Nosara area.
I wanted to fill you in on a wonderful adventure we had on our last day in Nosara. We had planned to hike in the Wildlife Refuge (Lagarta Lodge) because I and my family love to discover wildlife especially birds, but found out the day before that it was closed for a week and wouldn't reopen until after we had left. So we chanced a visit to Fishing Nosara because they advertised eco-tours on their sign. We signed up mostly because we found out that the guide was a lifelong local and he would take you to a farm for a Costa Rican lunch. Well his name was Javier and he grew up along the Nosara river just outside Nosara town, a property where his mother still lives. His brother Eduardo and his family live on a farm nearby and that was where lunch was served. As we walked along Javier showed us an ancient Indian burial ground, a hidden waterfall, he picked fruit off trees and peeled it for us (mangoes, starfruit--he even cracked a coconut and let us drink the water and eat the soft fleshy "apple" inside). He pointed out birds in foliage we would never have seen, and lizards on a branch overhanging the river that when he shook the branch they fell in the water and then proceeded to walk on water to get to shore. I've seen this feat on nature shows, I never thought I would see it in real life! But the lasting memory was to have Eduardo show us his farm and then take us into his home for the most fabulous lunch imaginable. It was chicken and potatoes, pork, rice, beans, special hot peppers, salad, tortilla shells still hot from the frypan, and cheese-the most glorious cheese that they made just for us that morning--I know I'm missing things because the table was loaded with food. I couldn't begin to describe the wonderful feeling I get when I think about the kindness these people showed us. I don't know if you know the family I speak of, but if you do and you see them when you're at FF, please thank them again for us, and be sure to recommend this tour to your other guests if they are eco-minded (it can be done on horseback as well). This was just one of the wonderful people we met while in the area. If you want to immerse yourself and live like a local, this is the place. PURA VIDA

Owner's Response: Thank you Bill and family for praising our wonderful staff at Villa Familia Feliz ; and also in the letter to me giving extra accolades to our housekeeper and cook Yolanda ; and to our honest well respected friend Abel, the charming knowledgable owner of Nosara Van Service.
Your description of actually a typical experience with a local Nosara family was a delight, and the main reason why I spent many months yearly in the last 17 years- the kind ,caring ,Costa Rican people.
Thank you again

Great property for several families. FABULOUS staff!

  • 5 of 5
No surprises at Familia Feliz. We found everything exactly as advertised. The casitas are clean and the air conditioners work well.
This is a great spot for multiple families. We had 2 couples and 5 older teens. We all had privacy
when we wanted it and community when we wanted that.

We used the owner's recommended airport shuttle service, Vino Transport, and the owner Abel and his driver Alberto were just great. If you land in Liberia, shop for wine and liquor at the duty free before you exit to claim your bags. Great selection, super cheap and each person can buy up to 5 litres!

The outdoor kitchen and the giant table make a great gathering/eating/game playing area.
Dr. Bob's staff: Jorge, Antonio and Yolanda were all very attentive. Be sure to order lobsters from Antonio, they are delicious and a bargain.

For a special meal out, head to La Luna in Playa Pelada. Be sure to book ahead.

If you are looking for a rustic, remote beach vacation, Playa Guiones is it.
If you want a touristy resort area with sidewalks and pavement, you will be disappointed- this is not Tamarindo.

Highly recommend Familia Feliz!

our trip of a lifetime

  • 5 of 5
We chose Nosara, Costa Rica for our family vacation, based on the recommendation of a friend. 6 of us spent a wonderful week surfing, walking the many nearby beaches, snorkling, enjoying the local restaurants, and cooking our breakfasts in the beautiful outside kitchen of Family Feliz. we were not interested in a resort vacation, rather we were hoping for a fun adventure. We could not have had a better time. We rented a car and loved the adventure of finding our way from the airport. We went to Super Nosara grocery store the first day and got avocados, tortilla chips, sour cream, hamburger meat, chicken, salsa, eggs and fruit. after our early morning walks on the beach we made breakfast then decided on the adventure for the day. we surfed every day, 3 of us had never surfed before, but because the waves are almost always near perfect, we caught on quickly. every night we walked to one of the nearby excellent restaurants, and returned "home" to play games and lounge on the patio in the wonderful lounge chairs and hammocks. Our side trips included seeing the turtles, lobster and deep sea fishing, exploring the tide pools at 3 different beaches, and of course shopping! It was by far our best family vacation ever. we cant wait to go back.

Thank you for your excellent review.

I believe that you have described our Villa FF and the surrounding area to a " T " :

*)- YOU DID NOT WANT A RESORT VACATION....WE ARE NOT A RESORT

*)- YOU WANTED AN ADVENTURE FAMILY EXPERIENCE IN A FUN PRISTINE< BUT UPSCALE AREA. OUR VILLA AND AREA HAVE SUPPLIED IT FOR YOU AND A WONDERFUL MEMORY.
THANK YOU AGAIN

PS...WE HAVE JUST REQUESTED THE INSTALLATION OF A PRIVATE " LAND-LINE TELEPHONE" ON OUR VFF PROPERTY WHICH WILL ENABLE VFF TO HAVE THE " NEWEST" BROADBAND HIGH-SPEED INTERNET SERVICE AVAILABLE OIN COSTA RICA WITH MORE SOPHISTICATED AND APPARENTLY MMORE RELIABLE WiF THAN OUR PREVIOUS WiFi.

PURA VIDA! Dr RAH .

Déçue du service

  • 3 of 5
Playa Guiones est un endroit magnifique que je recommande à tous ! Charmant village, pas trop touristique, un endroit de rêve pour le surf. Écrivez moi si vous voulez des suggestions pour des cours, le transport et activités!

Nous avons loué la Villa de la Familia Feliz. La villa est très bien situé, elles possèdent toutes les installations pour faire du séjour une expérience très agréable. Malheureusement, nous n'y avons eu aucun service. Le gérant devait venir nous accueillir, nous informer sur les services et activités offert, nous fournir des cellulaires pour la semaine. Nous l'avons contacté à maintes reprise et, chaque fois, il nous promettait de se présenter à un moment donné, mais faisait toujours faux bond. De plus, sur la page de la villa, ils font des recommandations sur une utilisation écologique de l'eau et de l'électricité et se prêche éco-responsable.

Malheureusement, le manque d'entretien provoque une surconsommation d'électricité (filtres des climatiseur incroyablement sales), de même qu'un gaspillage de plus de 10 litres par jour dû au fuite des robinets (nous avons récupéré l'eau qui s'écoulait de la douche extérieur pendant une journée!).

Thank you for your 3 STAR REVIEW, and your suggestions to enhance the quality of our services at our rental property. It was an awakening because we were used to all 5 STAR REVIEWS IN THE PAST.

I AM SORRY....BUT WE ARE NOT A RESORT AND SOME STUFF HAPPENS:

*)- When you advised us of the outside shower leaking your calculation of ~Ten Liters (~ Ten Quarts of water) over a 24 hour period while you were there, we made arrangements to repair the small pipe leak and it is repaired....thank you.

*)- We investigated your AC filter issue.....only the AC in bedroom #3 had more dust than we like....THANK YOU FOR NOTING IT.... filter in it ......it was cleaned again by our AC Service who had fully serviced all of our new Acs in mid January ,2013 ; he may have not cleaned the filter in bedroom #3 properly then ; or it became dusty again.

*)- My staff said that you had issues with your Quebec Canadian home cell phones in Costa Rica ; We offered you our FREE-LEASE-TO-GUESTS 3G NOKIA NEW CELL PNONES WITH EXCELLENT RECEPTION...Your party did not want the use of our two free cell phones I am advised by two of my fine caring,polite,responsive Staff..

THANK YOU FOR YOUR GOOD SUGGESTIONS TO IMPROVE OUR SERVICE TO YOU AND IMPROVE OUR MANAGEMENT SKILLS,AND OUR PROPERTY....Dr RAH

Fantastic Place!

  • 5 of 5
Our group had an absolute ball at this place. The outdoor open concept kitchen made for some fantastic group breakfasts with everyone around the gorgeous wood table. There were some definite relaxing lazy afternoons all sitting around the pool. And the location was ideal, we could walk everywhere (beach, restaurants, bank, shops, surf board rentals). There was plenty of room for everyone, the beds were very comfortable, and there were lots of clean linens and towels.

We were down in Nosara for the first time (a friend's wedding), and many of us talked about doing an annual trip as it was really a perfect vacation!

Thanks Famalia Feliz for the great hospitality!
