Nosara house description

Imagine a dream vacation in the tropical paradise of Costa Rica just a few steps from the beach! Casita Christina is located just on the edge of the Ostional Refuge 200 meter zone. There is nothing in between us, the refuge and the beach! It is a three minute walk to the beach so a rental car is not necessary for your vacation. The casita is surrounded by professionally, lush landscaped gardens which provides a very calming and relaxing atmosphere. If surfing is your thing, go any time of the day from sunrise to sunset! There is surf every day of the year! Or if you are a nature lover, drive 20 minutes to Playa Ostional and watch the olive ridley sea turtle lay their eggs. If you are looking for a thrill, you can fly through the air on Miss Sky Tours world famous zip line!

The Casita is a perfect home for a couple, a couple and two kids or a group of surfers looking for that perfect surf break. You can sit in the privacy of your porch by the pool or beachside at sunset time, cocktail in hand talking over the day at the beach surfing, walking, or shell collecting. In the mornings wake up to the sound of the surf, monkeys hollering above you in the pachote trees, iguanas cruising the pathways and tropical birds calling out to one another! The kitchen is set up for cooking all your meals with a market within walking distance. But, if you want to truly take advantage of your vacation, there are many local restaurants within walking distance of the property. We can help arrange shuttle service, canopy tours, surf lessons, massage, horseback riding on the beach, kayaking, fishing and many more activities.

Casita Christina is located below our private home, Casa Christina. The two homes have separate entrances and provide complete privacy. Living full time on the property , gives you the opportunity to ask us for advice if needed, address any issues that may come up or enjoy your vacation just as you want in complete privacy. We look forward to helping you plan your tropical Costa Rican vacation!

                              Owner info

                              Year Purchased: 2005

                              About the owner: We both grew up in Southern California and equally loved the ocean. Eleven years ago we took up surfing and spent our first surf vacation here at Playa Guiones. We spent the next five years coming back for a month to two months at a time. Owning two business's allowed us to work, work, work and then spend as much time as we could exploring the coastline of Costa Rica looking for surf. We now live here full time and it is a dream come true for us!

                              Why the Owner Chose Nosara:
                              After five years of exploring the Pacific coastline, we knew we had found the perfect spot for a second home here in Playa Guiones. Perfect waves year round, wonderful community of full and part time people, great weather, and as close to the beach as one can get! it is a community at the beach!

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              We love sitting on our porch in the mornings with sipping our Costa Rican coffee while listening and watching all the wildlife! Monkeys and birds dominate the wildlife jungle sounds! At any given time we can hop on our beach cruisers and do a surf check. If the tide is high or we need a day off, we can go for a hike, take a yoga or pilates class, fish, kayak up the river or read a book by the pool all day long!
