Casa de Memphis I
Great location. Dave the property owner and Tiffany the property manager were great to work with and provided very helpful information. The only criticisms if there are any are that there is no dishwasher so all the cleaning is done by hand and the furniture in the living room could be upgraded. Otherwise terrific experience and I would recommend it to my friends.
Thomas, Thank you for your review. I too agree that a dishwasher would be nice. We have studied it up and down. The problem, and there are many, is that, though expensive, they do not last long, getting them repaired next to impossible and any warranty worthless. As an airline pilot I have a vow, if it is broken fix it. If it can’t be fixed have it removed. This is not the case with other rentals that have a dishwasher. Yes they have one. DOES IT WORK?
Fantastic property and management
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Memphis I, and heartily endorse the home for anyone interested in close access to the Pacific Ocean Costa Rica experience.
Within walking distance: several world-class beaches, a biological reserve teeming with wildlife (we saw rare owls, not-so-rare howler monkeys, and a wide assortment of flora—guide was fantastic!), restaurants, neighborhood bars and mini supermarkets. Driving was necessary for larger grocery shopping needs and gas. And David has outfitted the house with every appliance you’d ever need. We found several toasters in waiting underneath the kitchen counter! Towels, linens, washer and dryer, even large ice-cube trays for boutique-style cocktails.
David and Tiffany were also super accommodating with dates and details to save us colones. You really should read everything he sends you. Download Waze before you start traveling too (google maps el suckeo).
Gosh, there’s so much more to say... including the Howler monkey highway just outside the front door. You’ll just have to book a stay to read our detailed rave list on the living room coffee table!
Pura Vida at Nosara!
We stayed at Casa de Memphis I for 5 days. Everything at the house was as advertised. Monkeys, one minute walk to beach, secure, AC, and away from the dust and crowds. Check in/out was easy. We were concerned not having a swimming pool for our 10 & 13 year old. With the beach right there and the outdoor shower, the kids will stay cool. The short 10 min drive to Playa Guillones to surf and boogey board is world class. You can surf in front of Olga's at high tide (5-7 min walk). Great place, would stay there again.
Misrepresented and Disappointed
This property was represented as on the beach. It is NOT ON THE BEACH and you DO HAVE TO WALK TO THE BEACH! There is not even a view of the beach. All you have as a view is a fenced back area or out the front you can see the dirt road. The house is nice, but you have to stay inside locked behind 3 layers of security. Was very disappointing! The long drive on the dirt roads would have been worth it if the house had been as described,.
I understand your comments about the house location. That said NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO BUILD WITH IN 200 METERS OF THE HIGH TIDE LINE, NO ONE. The house is on the 200 meter mark. (Cant legally get any closer) The vegetation between the house and the ocean is part of a national park. The path from the house through the jungle to the Ocean is well maintained and only takes 30 seconds to get from the house to the beach. The beauty of this is that when you get to the beach you do not have to see any man made houses. Just the natural fauna opposite the vast Pacific ocean. This very aspect is why houses like Casa de Memphis are in such high demand. In the ten years of renting this and the other house around corner to over 1000 people, you are perhaps the first person who did not know this.
Nice..well maintained and comfortable home
We enjoyed our stay very much. Dave was a good host..provided informative and necessary information in a timely and efficient manner. Reservation went smoothly and pre arrival communications went reasonably well. We do advise anyone who anticipates arrival after 7 PM on check in day to talk in advance with Dave and his manager in Costa Rica. Their advice to stay the night in San Jose or in route for late arrivals should be heeded unless prior arrangements are firmly made and understood by all parties. Were it not for a bit of an issue in this regard we would have rated our stay a 5. Be aware the road to this home and in part to Nosara can be very rough and dusty in the dry season. There were no issues with dust at the home, security was good, easy access to the beach. A minor issue at the house was dealt with quickly and efficiently while we were there. Surfing was fun and the pizza place close by is excellent.
Couldn't ask for a better experience.
You know how you build things up in your mind, only to be disappointed when it actually happens? Well, this trip was even better than we could have imagined. House location is excellent, Owner Dave is extremely responsive, and Tiffany is an absolute gem for information on the area. Nosara/Playa Pelada/Guiones is really a lifestyle experience that I recommend before it goes the way of big money investors.
Thank you for your kind words. Tiffany and I have been doing this for 10 years now. We have found that if you listen to people and keep their perspective in mind it usually works out in the long run. One back soon. Dave
