Maria and her staff were very hospitable. It was a very small place with maybe only 5-10 rooms. We stayed in a private cabin. There is hot water, AC, mini fridge, free breakfast (traditional costa rican or continental) , outdoor lounge next to a small cute pool with an overlook. Laid back forest mountain atmosphere. A few things to note: the driveway up to the b&b is VERY step and goes around a corner. We suggest a 4x4WD to climb it. but you can also park below and walk up the step incline. Also, like most toilets in costa rica, you cannot flush toilet paper, only human waste.
Martina was the most gracious host we’ve encountered on our backpacking trip. She is happy to accommodate all of our requests and is always happy. The location is much quieter and peaceful than most of the places in Nosara. We would definitely recommend staying here.
Overall, I loved the place. But, it is not without quirks and, you've got to understand the area if this is your first trip to Nosara. You will need transportation. There are quad rentals close by that will deliver. There is car rental, of course. With transportation, the location is great. You are tucked away on a mountain top with amazing views. Yet, in 5 minutes, you can be in the heart of Nosara. The breakfast was thoughtful, toast eggs, fruit, ect. The owner was very accommodating and, friendly. He has a house on the grounds. He was out, talking to guests every day. The room was spotless. There is daily maid service. On the downside, communication before arriving is difficult. It is an easy place to find if you have clear directions. It would have been helpful to have a clear map or, directions. An email address for someone in customer service would have been helpful. The phone number listed goes to a grump man who does "Computer work" for the owner. But, overall, I loved it. Beautiful, peaceful get away, close to the heart of town.…
The staff here is great! One staff member helped us take our luggage up the large hill to reach the b&b after it fell off of our ATV- above and beyond. The view is also great. Its a short drive to the downtown nosara area. No frills but the place is comfortable and clean.
