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 1st Class Experience.
Thanks again - and see ya next year !

This is the 4the time my family and myself have been to this area in Playa Guiones, Nosara and the 1st time we have stayed here at the Villa Tortuga with Dave Malbon...I have already booked our stay here again and have our flights for 2014 as I have yet to experience Costa Rica hospitality and connection like we had with our experience with Dave and the Villa Tortuga!!! His staff and he, himself made us feel like we were so special and our wish's were made real as they went out to make it so.....The beach, surfing, horse-back riding, restaurants, zip-lining, Howler monkeys,sunsets, shopping.solitude... Love and the people were such a blessing as it seems like were all their for the same reason....to enjoy our time with Piece & Love..!! Thanks Dave and your most fantastic crew..! Were coming back, soon!!! Blessings:Mark, Christina & family..!

Room Tip: We shared the Casa Tortuga with the 3 bedrooms, large kitchen & Living room for 6 of us (all adults) and it was super!

This is an outstanding location to the beach. The place is very clean and well managed by David. If you have any problems or questions he is fantastic at helping you out. Villa Tortuga has a nice pool and currently is expanding to include a yoga studio which is fantastic. The Villa's are good for families, close to some great restaurants and the video store for those rainy days. We love it and have come back several times. Highly recommend!

Loved this place! Sweet location in the most beautiful place on the planet, right on the beach and within close walks to good restaurants. Fall asleep to the sound of the crashing surf and wake to the sound of howler monkeys.

I highly recommend Villa Tortuga for your lodging in Nosara/Playa Guiones. My family (four adults, one 11 y-o) rented Villa Pelícano for three nights in early August, and it was simply perfect. The villa was comfortable, well-kept and quiet, in addition to being close walking distance to the beach and restaurants. The on-site pool was perfect for after beach lounging. It was upscale but not out of reach monetarily. All in all, it was a great value. Dave, the owner/manager, is a super nice guy who was on hand and willing to make sure we were happy. Plus, the complex includes the Frog Pad, which rents bikes, DVDs and has staff who are knowledgeable about the area and can book local tours. Another perk was that the Nine North Surf Co., with surf guide/teacher extraordinaire Mark K., was located next door to the Frog Pad. We found that the quality of accommodations in Guiones varied widely; however, you will not go wrong renting at Villa Tortuga. We will certainly stay there when we visit Nosara again.

Room Tip: Villa Pelicano was upstairs with nice balcony views of forest. 3BR, 2BA, perfect for two couples and kids.
