Welcome To Nosara, Costa Rica
Villa Tortuga – Tropical Vacation Rental in Playa Guiones
At Villa Tortuga we’ve created a vacation rental destination that feels like you’re home. By taking our favorite experiences from our vacations we’ve formed them into our idyllic Costa Rica vacation spot. Nestled near the sleepy town of Nosara, Playa Guiones is an ideal getaway for everyone. A three minute walk through the National Park lands gets you to a beautiful white sand beach with great surf and warm water. Our apartment vacation rental guests enjoy a relaxing environment where they can forget about the stress of daily life and truly unwind. Whether strolling along the sandy beaches, surfing, horseback riding through the jungle, or just lounging by the pool, you will be immersed in one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world.
What people say about our vacation rental
Excellent Staff, Amenities and BEAUTIFUL villas!
We stayed in Casa Pelicano for a week recently and I can't wait to go back. David was a great host and the entire staff was very accommodating. The villas were dreamy with huge balconies and everything one could want in an apartment. They even have movies and books in the front office along with lessons and rentals. We were able to sit on the balconies overlooking the pool in the evening and then opted for the other side in the morning so we could have our coffee and see some of the howler monkeys in the trees. It was absolutely perfect!
I've been to Nosara 3 times in the past 12 months. Each visit I've stayed at Villa Tortuga. Exceptional - no doubt. The accommodations are clean and comfortable. The price is right on. The staff is attentive and welcoming. Dave and his crew ensure that whatever you will need he can make happen.
I've been there with friends and I've visited there with my family -each and every time has been memorable, fun and worth every penny spent.
Make sure to ask Palancho to see if his dad can be available to cook you a traditional Costa Rican dinner. He came to our suite and crafted up the most unbelievable dinner (twice!). A spectacular way to end our fantastic stay a Viila Tortuga.
This is hands down the best place to stay in Nosara. Combine the comforts of what feels like home, with quick beach access, a lovely pool, and some of the nicest people you'll meet anywhere. Everything is at your fingertips here. Just perfect.
Thanks David for taking us at the last minute and making our trip to Nosara the best vacation ever.
I traveled solo both times, and stayed in the Del Mar suite - an incredibly spacious two bdrm apt (I know - a bit large for just one person but I love having a kitchen). I literally feel like this is my home away from home. The owner David, and his staff - Alex, and Adrianna are just amazing. Initially, because I was traveling solo, I wasn't too sure if I should stay here. It's in the quieter end of Guiones - turns out I preferred it! And the staff always made sure I was okay, safe, busy, etc! I love the convenience of the Frog Pad (movie/book/bike rental), the fact that there are several great restaurants and the mini market all within walking distance - and let's not forget to mention the beach is right in your backyard! I adore the owner, Mark - and his new instructor Michelle! You walk right out and have your board rentals, surf lessons right there!
I almost don't want to rave about this place because I want it be my own secret paradise and always available when I wanna go! I'll definitely be back soon!
We stayed at Villa Tortuga for a week and it was terrific. David (the owner) and his staff were great - very friendly and helpful. The place itself was perfect for us. The beach is practically in the backyard and it's in close proximity to just about everything else (restaurants, grocery, adventure tours, yoga, etc.). The room we stayed in was very comfortable, complete with a kitchen so that we could have some of our meals in. We had one really nice dinner by the pool, which we made on the BBQ. We could rent movies, borrow books, rent surf boards… it really had everything. We would definitely stay there again, and again...
Where we are located
Our positioning is great as we are on the first street back from the beach on the north-side of Playa Guiones. There are more than 20 restaurants, a local market, and shops within 10 minute walking distance of the vacation rentals at Villa Tortuga. Walk straight down the beach path for 3 minutes and you’re standing in front of one of the most consistent surf breaks in the world.
Getting Here is an easy drive from Liberia or San Jose and an even easier flight from either.
