About the Owner

Sonia and I live in the Long Beach Calif. area and have 3 children. Sonia has a love for decorating and fittness. Other than running a family business I enjoy surfing and riding my Harley. Now that our children are older Sonia and I have more time to spend on our dreams. Thats how we found our place in Costa Rica.

Wonderful home, Wonderful Area

  • 5 of 5
This Villa was just the ticket for our two families (one with 1 child, the other with 3 children). We enjoyed a lot of surfing. The close proximity to the beach (5 minute walk) made it easy for everyone to go back and forth with ease on their own schedule with their own gear. The layout of the house also gave both families their own privacy but were able to come together nicely in the common areas. The house has all the necessities, is well decorated and has beautifully done landscaping. All this made for very relaxing times at the house either near the pool or on one of the two porches. Lots of wildlife around the house.

The location is great. Close walk to couple restaurants. We rented golf carts, although not a necessity, this broadened our reach quite a bit. Can walk to everything, but transportation is nice if you wish to explore area. We all felt very safe in this house and in the area in general.

Activities: We enjoyed surfing-took lessons and rented boards-utilized aqua tibia, coconut harry's, and the one on the corner near beach access, took nice quad tour with monkey quads, and had much success fishing with fishing nosara. Really enjoyed trying out the different restaurants in the guiones area, had some really good meals.

All in all, this property provides a great foundation for a great vacation!

Beautiful home near the beach

  • 5 of 5
We were a group of two couples, with a total of six kids, ranging in age from 3-10. Our stay at Villa Sonita was perfect. The grounds are beautiful, we saw monkeys passing over the tree canopy, and lots of birds and iguanas. We hired a cook one night and wished we had done so more often... The food was delicious, and it was such a treat to arrive home from watching the sunset and not have to scramble to get food on the table. The internet worked well, and the TV worked the one time we tried to turn it on-- to watch the superbowl, albeit in Spanish!

The kids absolutely loved the pool. The walk to the beach is short and beautiful. Several of us rented boards from Agua Tibia surf school, just across the street.

Scott was very accomodating and helpful throughout the booking process, and Rebecca (the property manager) was very pleasant and spoke perfect English. I highly recommend this property.

Fantastic location with beautiful accomodations

  • 5 of 5
Villa Sonita was wonderful for our family of four and our friends (a married couple). All of the rooms were very clean and the AC in the bedrooms worked quickly and effectively. The outdoor seating around the house and the pool was great to enjoy the jungle setting. We had a blast in the pool and it was an easy walk to the beach with our surf boards. Awesome week of surfing with Chorotega Surf school and Graciela Lopez cooked her wonders at the house. The property management at the Harbor Reef was very responsive, friendly and available. Villa Sonita was more than we dreamed of and the perfect spot to relax.

Twelve of our family members stayed at Villa Sonita. We couldn't have had a more perfect vacation and Villa Sonita was the backdrop for it all! It was private and secure, but close to everything. We had plenty of space in the house for privacy, but could also come together when we wanted to. Most mornings we sat on the back porch and watched the display of wildlife and in the evenings at least 15 geckos would gather around the outdoor lights to eat bugs. There is a lime tree in the yard that had fruit and a mango tree in the front that provided us with many snacks. From the house we could easily walk to town, restaurants, the beach and the Nosara Yoga Institute. In between those activities we always came back to the pool to cool off. It was an amazing trip for all of us and I can't wait to go back!!

Perfect location and amazing amenities!

  • 5 of 5
We traveled to Playa Guiones from New Orleans for a wedding. The wedding party rented a total of five houses in the area and other than the location of the wedding itself, we were the envy of all others! The house had everything we needed and was tidy and secure! The owner is VERY accommodating and ensure we had no troubles during our stay.

Villa Sonita was dubbed "the beach house" by our wedding group because it is as close to the beach as you can get in the village. It is a five minute walk to restaurants, bars, the beach, the center of the village, and a GREAT massage! Honestly, the location could not be better, I would say only a couple houses are closer to it all.

Location, friendly ownership and a great house with all necessary amenities (including A/C in the rooms and a great pool onsite) make this a must for rental if it is available. It is the perfect property for a group of surfers as well as a family looking for safe and convenient fun in the Costa Rican sun!

I will absolutely stay here again next time I head to CR. After seeing many of the houses in the area, it would be hard to do better.

Our Personal Experience in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5
My family just had the most wonderful experience staying at Villa Sonita. I must say that the pictures on the website are just a small glimpse of the actual beauty, comfort, space, and spirit of Pura Vida that surrounds this awesome Villa, and the quaint surf town of Nosara. We couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised!! Every local ("Tica") we met was super-friendly and tried very hard to help us enjoy our vacation. You'll notice right away that the owners have put a ton of personal touches everywhere to make you feel at home, while being in paradise. My favorite part was the pool area (with a swim up bar!) that sits in the middle of a perfectly landscaped jungle-style garden. Make sure you walk around the grounds and pay attention to the variety of well-maintained plants, trees, and beautiful flowers that surround you. It was so cool to float in the pool and watch the Monkeys relax in the trees. If you surf, you’ll love the 5 minutes’ walk to some of the best warm-water surf you’ll experience at Playa Guiones. The beach was also perfect for long walks, and killer sunsets that you won’t want to miss each night. Although we loved cooking the majority of our meals in the Villa, I would recommend you enjoy the Italian dinning, and other family style restaurants for lunch found in Nosara. We also had a great experience with our shuttle/transportation driver: He is super friendly and a very safe driver. We’re definitely going back and happily spreading the word to our friends and family to create their own special memories at Villa Sonita!

Location

From the Owner

In 2001 I took my first surf trip to Costa Rica with my friends. From the first day we arrived we knew we would be back. After several surfing trips with my friends my wife decided to experience Costa Rica. I told her of a beautiful town that we stay at called Playa Guiones. It did not take long for her see why it was so special to me. The beautiful sandy beaches, the warm water,great food, and most of all the kindness of the local people. Every vacation we spent in Nosara with our family we would take the time and look at property. We hoped one day we would buy a piece of our dream. In March of 2010 our dream came true.

Villa Sonita sits on the 200 meter line at Playa Guiones. This is as close to the beach as you can get. From high tide and 200 meters back is protected land. Our property enables you to enjoy the beauty of the jungle,sound of the ocean and a variety of wildlife. In all my travels I believe Playa Guiones (Nosara), has the nicest people,best food and surf for all levels. This is why my wife and I chose Nosara.
