We loved it there (nosara beach house) and the propieter recomended this place .. She called and told us to go see David. We did. David is an awesome guy.... More

This is a great place to stay if your looking for a good location to get around Nosara. I've been to Nosara five times and in the past have rented houses or stayed at hotels but this place is probably one of the best, location wise. You're not directly in town, so you still get that naturey feel, but you... More

If your lucky enough to be in Nosara then it doesn't get a lot better. But if you want a little better stay at the Villa Tortuga in Nosara. Nosara is a remote unique part of Costa Rica, with a great friendly Vibe. And the Staff at the Tortuga are the best. They will do anything for you to make... More

First of all, I have to say that this was one of my most enjoyable vacations. Nosara is chill, the people are friendly and importantly it's not very crowded which makes it a great place to unwind and get away from it all. Dave and Alex at Villa Tortuga made our trip special, they were incredibly helpful and knowledgeable about... More

The bedrooms were lovely. There was a large living room where about 12 of us met each night. There is a large and fully equipped kitchen. The walk to the beach is about 5 minutes, through a path in the woods.

I had a great experience here. Nicely located in Playa Guiones: an easy walk to downtown Guiones and an easy walk to the playa. Beach paths also provide easy access to Playa Pelada. I stayed in Suite De La Luna with my best friend. It was large: 2 separate bedrooms with closets and safes, a full kitchen (with coffee &... More

I've been going to Nosara (Playa Giones) every year (sometimes several times a year) for over 18 years now and I can say that Villa Tortuga is my favorite place to stay.

Dave is one fantastic host. Loved our stay in Villa Tortuga. Well appointed casa with pool right outside and the beach steps away. Close to many restaurants and the local Mini Super. Dave has bike rentals, surfboards, snorkel gear and makes you feel right at home

Nosara is one of my favorite places on the planet. There are many gems in the area each having a unique offering. One of the things I like about Villa Tortuga besides the rad location and relaxing pool area, and its adjacent proximity to a massage studio, is the rancho on the second story by the pool. It is a...

My wife and I stayed here with friends and had the BEST time... so good I ended up proposing on the beach just walking distance from Villa Tortuga! It's a wonderful location, the place we stayed felt like home away from home, and Dave is the best! Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, we'll definitely be back!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
