After a working congress in the capital, San Jose, I joined a couple of colleagues to Finca Austria for some relaxing days in November. We stayed 5 days at this beautiful resort and enjoyed every minute of it - and yes, it is even better then the pictures... Beautiful resort, beautiful view, excellent and friendly staff, great food - and... More

We visited Finca Austria over Thanksgiving. It was my in-laws celebration of their 50th wedding anniversary and we were 17 various family members: children, their spouses and their kids ranging from 11-18. I find it is difficult when you arrange to rent a property from pictures. It's very easy to make things look great in photography: the right angles, the... More

Finca Austria is dreamy! It's located in the midst of dense jungle were you get to enjoy lots of wildlife like howler monkeys and colorful flowers. The infinity pools give it a laid-back luxurious experience. If it's adventure, nature and a beautiful sight seeing you are looking for, this is your place. Sunrises and sunsets are memorable. For all those... More

The Finca is amazing. The rooms are spacious and the view is incredible. Its amidst the jungle and the infinity pools overlook the ocean. You hear howler monkeys all the time and the bird species are abundant. There are various beaches close that offer surfing and even shopping. There is also a great zip line experience close and a waterfall... More

I also recently stayed at Finca Austria for a week for a retreat. The property is beautiful and well maintained generally but there were areas that could use some attention. Three weeks after the negative reviews over the holidays, the refrigerator in the Villa Mariposa kitchen was still not working which I would see as a real negative if I... More

Just piggy backing off of the previous negative reviews. I just got back from a retreat stationed at FA and it was incredible! Yes the drive is long, wifi is spotty, and oh no! There are bugs. Hello!

Our extended family of 10 stayed at this property for the week of Christmas. Based on the price, pictures, and few reviews we had high expectations. Also we booked this thru a company (Luxury Retreats) which we had booked other vacations thru and expected similar accommodations and service. We were disappointed in this vacation. Negatives: the drive to get to... More

We spent the holidays at this place and were very disappointed. Our expectations were not met. The property is poorly maintained and the pictures do not represent its current condition.

We are sorry to hear that and take all our comments very seriously. Not as an excuse... More

Wow. That place is amazing. This hidden gem was the best place to finish our holidays in Costa Rica ! With a big infinity pool (in which can really swim !) and a jacuzzi with a magnificent view on the hills, the forest, the animals which are your only neighbors (monkeys, hummingbirds, birds, iguanas…) and, of course, the ocean, these...

What a wonderful place with a huge infinity pool up the hills of Nosara. Though you got to have a 4WD to access this marvelous and well hidden gem, it is totally worth the extra minutes of driving. If you are up for privacy and buenas vistas, that's the place. If you got a chance go there. It will stick... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Finca Austria is about 60 hectares and is located 6 km inland on the Rio Nosara. On a 300 m high hill are our two houses Casa Colibri and Villa Mariposa associated with a path. From them you have a wonderful view of Nosara to the sea, the river and to the flat part of the finca Austria, where the private tennis court, which has become famous through the Finca Austria team football pitch and also the pasture can be found at the stables. Our chef Toni would be to pamper our guests with a wonderful breakfast and dinner, if desired. Concierge and room services are obvious. Of course can both houses be booked separately. ... more   less
