Beautiful space with close proximity to pool and the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed our 18-day stay at beautiful Playa Pelada to the fullest. The walk to a lovely pool that offered shade in the afternoon, with the beach just a short distance from that, made for very relaxing days without even leaving home. The location is handy to everything in Nosara, and the space itself was roomy and comfortable for a family of 4. Can’t wait to plan our next trip!

After visiting Costa Rica for over 10 years this was one of the best and most convenient .

  • 5 of 5

This condo was amazing! It was very open, clean and accessible to the beach as well as the pool. The kitchen was well stocked with lots of space. Very comfortable beds and living room furniture. Air conditioners worked great, but didn't really need them at night.

The property manager was very helpful. Will definitely rent again!

Amazing and relaxing Condo on the beach in the jungle

  • 5 of 5

Our time at the Casa del Perro Azul was completely enjoyable. We loved the location - a short path to a beautiful Costa Rican beach with tide pools at low tide and amazing waves at high tide. Never crowded and great for walking. We walked twice to Guiones Beach along the water. The pool was warm, clean, and relaxing. The complex has beautiful gardens and all guests and owners were friendly and from all over the world. The outside balcony was perfect for reading and relaxing in the afternoon. The condo is spacious, very clean, and convenient. AC worked well for sleeping and otherwise we had the windows open and fans running. Francela and Graham were great hosts and full of helpful local information. Numerous restaurants within walking distance - we loved Il Pepperoni the most! Great food and friendly local staff. La Bodega has anything you might need in a pinch - and the Super Nosara supermercado was affordable and very local. We took a tuk tuk there twice. Lots to do in the area. Guiones has many nice restaurants, yoga studios, and shops that rent ATVs and give surf lessons. We walked to the Biological Refuge and saw lots of gorgeous birds, monkeys, and a pizote.

We definitely recommend Casa Perro Azul and hope to return there next year .

Thanks again for a great stay !

Dirty and Lacking Necessities

  • 1 of 5

I stayed in this condo for a week and a half in May with my boyfriend and found the condo to be dirty and lacking the necessities to make it comfortable long term. Upon arrival, the place seemed fine but once we started to open windows we noticed that nearly all the screens in the windows and sliding glass doors were either ripped or pulled out from frame making them unusable unless you wanted bugs inside (which still happened). I find it strange that the guest book advised that you use the windows to save energy yet nearly all the screens were ripped.

Additionally, I experienced severe allergic reactions every night due to the dust, dirt, and grime on the fan above the bed. And while you might say "turn off the fan" (which we did) but the air conditioner blew straight down across the fan down to the bed blowing all the dirt and dust on top of us while we slept making me miserable.

If you want to save money and make meals at home the kitchen is certainly big enough but you won't have enough dishes or serving bowls to do so. I mean there are only 4 plates - give me a break.

Also, if you are looking for a place that might have some games, books or movies - don't expect that either. There was nothing but a spray cleaner and someones old book on the book shelf.

If the power goes out those candles you see on the coffee table are all you have. Have fun with that.

And to top it off, the day before we left for Costa Rica we still hadn't heard from the property manager about where to meet him to get the key. I had to email twice and finally call him on my dime to get a response. And all he did was leave the key a lock box outside the door. He never once checked on us when we arrived or throughout our stay.

This was our second stay in Nosara, and while I'll be back to Nosara it will be my last time at this crappy condo. Do yourself a favor and rent somewhere else.

Owner's Response: Hello, Sorry to hear you had a bad experience at Casa Perro Azul. I don't think I have ever had one complaint, but I understand Costa Rica is tough for some travelers. We are concerned about some of the issues you mentioned, we had the screens repaired last year, and it appears some recent guests may have caused new damage. We will investigate and makes repairs as needed. Thanks again for pointing this out. I have been around this country a few times and stayed in many places and I can promise you there is very little that competes with the price, location, and quality of this condo. I am also not sure where one would buy board games in English in the middle of the jungle, but a deck of cards can probably be found. You may not have been aware, but there is a supply of books in the communal laundry room for all to share. We do not have a television which is usually not an issue, and this is by choice. If one desires, they can easily bring along a tablet or laptop and stream movies. Did you read the messages in our reply messages with the contact numbers? I am pretty sure we are very easy to contact and previous reviews comment on and confirm that. Also sorry you have allergies during the month that is known for allergies here in Cosa Rica. Wishing you safe travels in the future. Graham and Francella

Wonderful winter holiday!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four spent 10 days at this lovely condo. Everything was perfect for the accommodations, all of our needs were met. We were comfortable sleeping, cooking, and hanging out after a full day spent on the beautiful local beaches. We surfed, body surfed or paddle boarded every morning at the beach in Guiones, then after breakfast, we would hang out at the pool for a few hours. Then have lunch (during the heat peak of the day--- it's got very hot), read and relax. Around 2pm, we would head out for an afternoon excursion to see local Howler Monkeys, take a nature hike, or visit a local waterfall. We always ended up on a different beach in the ocean to watch a lovely sunset. Either we ate at one of the many great restaurants (El Chivo, El Pepperoni or Ten pies) being our favorites, or would prepare a simple dinner at home of rice, beans, fruit, salad, and tortillas.

Overall, it was one of our best family vacations. Graham and Francella were wonderful in helping us book the condo and in accommodating unexpected schedule changes at the last minute.
