About the property

Choose which of our accommodations best suits you.

White Picket Fence is just steps away from the best surf break in Nosara. There are a few things that make this town so special: it's world-renowned for surfing and yoga, has a small-town feel, and the beaches are protected natural reserves. So the beaches are unlike any other - primitive, untouched and the most beautiful sunsets you'll ever see.

We offer ATV rentals and tours on the property through iQuad, as well as surfboard rentals and lessons. We're 100 meters from The Gilded Iguana, Rosie's, and Go Juice. A few more blocks is Burgers and Beers, Juan Surfo's surf shop, a mini supermarket and The Living Hotel, which offers daily yoga classes.

This listing is for Unit 1, our large upstairs room. Also available: Unit 2 - www.vrbo.com/1020733

Our units are not suitable for children.

About Reservations

We're surfers and travelers who have made Nosara our 2nd home for more than 10 years.

Why Reservations chose Playa Guiones

After traveling back and forth to Nosara for years, it was time to make a commitment! White Picket Fence was built in 1998, and we're excited to share this hidden gem.

What makes this bungalow unique

Want to wake up hidden in the jungle but still only be a 2-minute walk to the beach? You've found your spot! There's nothing better than bird watching from the balcony and swinging in the hammock with a cup of Costa Rican coffee. Then grab your board for a surf or take a quad tour through the mountains to see the farmlands and rolling hills. But we should warn you - you probably won't want to leave.

great spot!

  • 5 of 5

Just spent 2 weeks at white picket fence with my wife and 2 teenage sons and truly enjoyed the place and the location. Our host Alice was also very helpful and accommodating with anything we needed. If you want to surf, it's awesome as its a 2 min walk to the beach and we rented our board directly from them. Its really well located for grocery and restaurants with plenty in walking distance. The bikes on site also made it nice for quick stroll around guiones or checking how good or bad the waves were. Another bonus is they have the quads on site so we rented them for a couple hours here and there to go explore different spots. Would go back in heartbeat

Great time at WPF / Playa Guiones

  • 5 of 5

First off Alice and Alex were great hosts! They really make your stay relaxing and comfortable. They have great suggestions on best places to eat. We had an SUV rental so getting around to the best spots wasn't an issue. You easily could get by with a ATV or bikes. I only say this is because some of the places to eat were on the north side, which was like a 10 to 15 min drive on really bad roads. We stayed in the top unit in June. They had some strong down pours at night, which was unusual for this time of the year they said. I only say this because the roof is tin and it was a little loud for only a couple nights. Not a negative, just something to be aware of during the rainy season. The porch was great and we sat out there most of the time with a fan on. This made it comfy. I took a few siestas in the hammock too. The bedroom and bathroom were in good shape. One thing to remember. This is open air for the most part and your in the tropical jungle. You will see some bugs around if you visit in the rainy season. The AC worked great at night and kept us cool. The beach is close by as all the other reviews have said. Ruth and Maggie took a few walks on the beach with us. They are really great, Great Danes. I recommend doing the iQuad tour with Alex's crew as it was a good time and you see some really cool parts of Nosara. This is right out back from WPF. They also do surf lessons with Mark. Mark is also your tour guide for the ATV. Great guy! Maybe if your nice, he'll take you to El Chivo for some Chili Guerro. ;o) We will be back someday with our son for sure!

Just as perfect as the pictures!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at White Picket Fence with two of our friends. We cannot say enough about how wonderful the entire experience was. We definitely recommend it to anyone thinking about staying here. We had split our trip up and stayed at a resort for the first half if the week, but once we got to White Picket Fence we all wished that we had booked the stay for longer. The accommodations were beautiful and very clean. Nosara is so quiet and welcoming, but also has some shops and restaurants so there's the perfect blend of solitude and entertainment. We were able to surf twice a day with the beach being so close. Alex was an absolutely amazing host and we would definitely come back. Stay here. You won't regret it.

White Picket Fence was exactly what we needed. The apartment is perfect. We loved that the kitchen and the bedroom both open up onto the porch. We enjoyed making frozen beverages, lounging in the hammock, and taking taking refreshing dips in the pool. We utilized the owners surfboards and had a great lesson. The beach was a quick 5 minute walk away. Playa Guiones is quiet and clean. White Picket Fence surpassed our wishes.

White Picket Fence: Great Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in the upstairs apartment for a week and loved every minute of it!

The apartment is well equipped and clean! Lots of hot water, nice bathroom/bedroom area. Very comfortable!

Outdoor deck/kitchen area perfect! Loved relaxing on the deck in comfy chairs.

Great pool and proximity to the ocean!

If all of this wasn’t wonderful enough , Alex, Caroline and Patrick were so helpful and pleasant! I would highly recommend staying at The White Picket Fence.

Can’t wait to go back!
