Nosara house description

Nosara Paradise Rentals is a boutique vacation rental resort offering hotel-style amenities including Professional Security Service.

Rate: $950.00/week or $150.00/day

Casa Serene is an oversized studio in our nature preserve, two blocks from the beach, in the quiet zone and a few steps from the business district.

Casa Serene's unique location gives you the best of both worlds: complete privacy and tranquility yet close to all the amenities.

Hand-laid tile and locally-crafted furniture add to the authenticity of this beautiful property. Grevan Hernandez has created another floral masterpiece; Casa Serene's surrounding garden blends perfectly with the adjacent nature preserve and this seamless relationship with the land exemplifies the ‘Pura Vida’ spirit.

Casa Serene is intended to satisfy honeymooners or small families looking whose need more space than a standard studio and less space than a two bedroom house.

Guests staying at Casa Serene enjoy free WiFi, top quality linens and towels, and 24-hour security. All Nosara Paradise Rentals guests enjoy our full-time concierge service, discounts on fishing and safari tours, plus access to house cleaning and in-house breakfast (available upon request).

Casa Serene also comes complete with all the necessary items to fully enjoy your stay: all kitchen appliances, utensils, microwave, blender, in-room safe, ice cold AC and USA-style electrical outlets.

                          Car: Not Necessary

                          Nosara Paradise Rentals is a totally new concept in Costa Rica vacation rentals; we offer all the full service amenities of a first class hotel (concierge, internet, laundry and cleaning, gardener, babysitting, pool, tours and guides, and much more) without compromising your privacy. Our collection of authentic Costa Rican 'Pura Vida'-style homes sit on their own lots surrounded by dense landscape barriers to ensure your complete privacy and tranquility, yet remain steps from the local business district.

                          Located next to the Nature Preserve, our complex is an ecologist's dream; from the monkeys sunning above the pool to the Pizotes wandering through the gardens. All of our vacation homes are equipped to make you feel right at home: ice-cold A/C, all kitchen appliances, utensils, microwave, blender, towels, linens, et cetera. We also have a complete support staff (gardener, concierge, cleaning and laundry services) available to ensure that your stay is trouble free.

                          The Nature Preserve and gardens guarantee your privacy, however just outside the gate is the thriving Guiones Beach business district. Excellent restaurants like the Zen Cafe, Soda Tico, Giardino Tropical, Casa Tucan, and Cafe de Paris are in the neighborhood and we are directly adjacent to area's newest convenience store.

                          We offer Guided Safari Tours as well as Safari Cart and Bicycle rentals which opens up the entire community to exploration...friendly locals, amazing ecology, and fantastic dining are all just outside your door at Nosara Paradise Rentals.

                          Our full-time staff is a tight-knit group of friends and family who are all locals of the nearby towns of Nosara, Garza, Esparanza, and Guiones. They are courteous, charming, and helpful English-speakers who are dedicated to the happiness of their guests. Time and again our staff has risen to the challenges presented by meeting your unique needs while on vacation.

                          We are very grateful for the opportunity to help you experience Costa Rica and create memories that last a lifetime.

                          Year Purchased: 2008

                          About: I have been renting vacation homes in Nosara for 15 years and my dream of a family-friendly vacation resort with an emphasis on privacy, tranquility and peace has been realized in Nosara Paradise Rentals. I live in Jacksonville, FL and travel to Nosara as much as possible. Give me a call anytime and let's make your Costa Rican vacation dreams into reality!

                          Why Nosara:
                          Casa Bonita is the fourth house I have built in Playa Guiones and represents the culmination of the experience from Casa Tranquilo, Casa Surfeando, and Casa Capitan. Casa Bonita is a true Costa Rican masterpiece that must be seen to be believed. This house was an instant hit and has become a favorite of yoga student, large families, and fishing groups.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Casa Bonita is at the heart of the Nosara Paradise Rentals campus and perfectly captures the peace and quiet for which we are famous. The most unique element of Casa Bonita is the upstairs entry way which is the best view of the Nature Preserve on the entire campus.
