You really should find people who actually want to work. The employees we encountered were completely void of emotion or personality. I think our presence was viewed as a complete inconvenience to these people. There are so many other options for this type of service (board rental) in Nosara - go somewhere else. Everyone else in town is happy to... More

The staff at Coconut Harry's are wonderful and very helpful. I rented a board all week and took lessons with Luigi. He's a great instructor! Everyone was kind, positive and encouraging. Each day they congratulated me on meeting my goals and always had a friendly smile. I would go back in an instant. I want to go back right now!... More

Gabriela Carazo, at Harry's, could not have been more helpful & flexible in renting us a surf board & boogie board. We rented from their location nearest their beach. It was convenient, they watched our car & included shirts for free to protect us from sunburn. She even offered to let us use their shower when we were done.

I have been to Nosara surfing over the past few years. Every time, I have rented a board from Coconut Harry. The kid wanted to charge me $25 a day for the 10 or so days I was there. I tried to strike a deal with him at $20/day. He refused. I went elsewhere - just up the street(can't recall... More

Just read your review, Sorry for not offering you a better deal. We usually give nice discounts for long term rentals. At minimum we give you a free day for renting for a week. For 10 days we would have done $15 per day for sure. You mentioned you were talking to a kid. He was probably our guy that... More

I rented boards for myself and kids (12 & 15) for the week. They have a retail store at the center of Playa Guiones and satellite shed right at start of the the beach trail. If you turn in your board before 5, they will keep it for you and have it ready when you go out in the morning.... More
