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... More

Last December I stayed at Villa Tortuga with my family and friends for my wedding. First of all I want to say that the Villa is absolutely beautiful, specially the Treehouse, which is where I stayed. The Villa is walking distance from the beach, which makes it very convenient, especially when sunset time comes because you HAVE to be at... More

We had a great stay at Villas Tortugas (we stayed in Casa Tortuga - first floor unit). It is as close to the beach as you can get. There are also a number of restaurants within walking distance. The house is well-equiped, though, so you could self-cater easily. We traveled with 2 adults and 2 children, ages 6 and 4,... More

The surf is less crowded on the North End of Giones, and there's a lot of restaurants and a mini-super within easy walking distance. Very chill place to hang out in peace and quiet. A two minute walk up the road to check the surf, or a 30 second bike ride, probably the easiest access to the beach in all... More

We stayed at Villa Tortuga for 4 weeks in their busiest season. Nevertheless, Dave and the staff always had time to answer our questions and help out with excursions. There was always someone available to help at the Frog pad, where they also had the biggest DVD collection for rent I have ever seen. Very cheap to rent and lots... More

We looked at a lot of places online as location was important to us as we were traveling with our infant child. Villa Tortuga is clean, quiet, around the corner from great restaurants and a bar. It is as close as you can get to staying on the beach, just a minute up the road ( the beach is protected,... More

I have been to Playa Guiones several times, and now stayed at Villa Tortuga 3 times. There is no better spot. All the condos are clean and well maintained! The Staff is awesome and always willing to help. Dave and the Gang will steer you to the best excursions and do anything they can to make your stay as pleasant... More

This is the Best location in Nosara. Our family has stayed here for many years and we love it every time. The folks at The Frog Pad are super helpful in getting you set up with excursions, bikes, boards, you name it.

We have been to Nosara twice, and both times we have stayed at the Casa del Sol in the Villa Tortuga. It's the perfect choice for families or couples that want a bit more privacy (and their own gorgeous pool) but still being a part of Villa Tortuga and all that they have to offer. The house is spacious and... More

Villa Tortuga is simply the best.... A wonderful spot, just a few short minutes to surf. Private, convenient and beautiful...... the easiest surf trip to date ! And a pool to top it all off. David and the Gang at Villa Tortuga were extremely helpful and professional. I would highly recommend any of his properties to anyone looking for a... More

Here at Villa Tortuga we've attempted to create a vacation destination that feels just like home. We've taken all of the things that we've enjoyed from our own vacation experiences and combined them to form our dream vacation spot. Nestled near the sleepy town of Nosara, Playa Guiones is an ideal getaway for everyone. A three minute walk through the National Parklands gets you to a beautiful white sand beach with great surf and warm water. Our guests enjoy a relaxing environment where they can forget about the stress of daily life. Whether strolling along the sandy beaches, surfing, horseback riding through the jungle, or just lounging by the pool, we are immersed in one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world. ... more   less
