Nosara house description

Casa de Memphis II is located at the little known north entrance to Playa Pelada where the Nosara River meets the Pacific Ocean. This private beach house is part of a collection of 8 private houses surrounded by the beach on one side and the ostional wildlife refuge on the other. There is only one road in or out and few people are aware that this section exist. This location is very private yet still very convenient to restaurants, grocery stores and everything else the community of Nosara has to offer.

The location is what makes this small community so special. With the ocean on one side, the Ostional wildlife area on the other and the Nosara River meets the Pacific Ocean near by, the area is a Mecca for wildlife. Because of the peaceful coexistence between the home owners and the natural surroundings, the wildlife literally comes to the door of the house. If you are looking for private seclusion surrounded by peace and quiet, this is it. That is until a flock of parrots land in the tree above and the neighborhood monkey troop join in, then it gets a little noisy, but they were there first.

The house is a one minute walk to the beach and is located around the corner from the original Casa de Memphis I. (Some people perfer to rent two seperate houses at the same time so as to lessen “family dymanics”) Constructed in the style of the surrounding community; this one story two bedroom house is set up for the traveling family. One bedroom has a queens size bed and the other has two set of custom made punk beds. Both bedrooms have private baths with walk in showers. There is a twin bed in the main room up in the loft. There is also a private one bedroom cabina with its own private bathroom, garden, hammock and outdoor furniture that is only accessed by a private bridge over a stream. Together they will sleep 9 people. Both the house and the cabina are fully air conditioned, and has all of the amenities of home including, private pool, beach towels, beach chairs, cable TV, wireless internet, fully equipped kitchen, outdoor grill, pool chairs, telephone, monitored alarm system and more. The house and cabina are only rented out together, never separately.

Because the house sits at the end of a road there is no through traffic, noise or the associated dust commonly found else where.

Security: Costa Ricans are by nature a very passive people. That said petty theft is an on going issue. Nothing neutralizes this issue more than common since. CdM I & II have monitored alarm systems and 400 pounds safes bolted to the floor. No other house available for rent has this level of security.

Tired of cooking? We can arrange for a private chef to do all of the shopping, come to the house and prepare the menu of your choice at a mere fraction of what dinning out would be. This is the best bargain in Nosara and the wife of the owner of the house takes full advantage of this. Imagine, someone comes to the house at 17:00 (5PM), cleans, prepares dinner, cleans up afterwards and departs by 20:00 (8PM). Cost: $25 plus groceries. Tell us what you want and we will make it happen. 



NOTE: Nosara, like many other beach communities, is experiencing a building boom. The northern end of Playa Pelada, where the house is located, is the only location free from the early morning construction noise, truck traffic and the associated dust. Dust is a serious issue from December to May. While there is very little traffic in front of the house we still apply molasses to the road out front to seal off the dust. Place smells like pancakes. 



Booking: There are two ways to book Casa de Memphis I or II. VIA OWNER: simply send the owner an email stating which house and what dates you want. His reply will confirm the dates and the rate. If this is agreeable then the owner will send you a rental agreement to print out, read, sigh and return with a deposit in the form of a US dollar check or Canadian post order. 60 days prior to your arrival you will send in the whole rental fee. Your deposit converts to a security deposit and is refunded back to you after you depart. VIA CREDIT CAED: VRBO now has a book it now feature where you can use a credit card for the whole process. You will need to purchase a $49 security deposit policy that is non refundable. The choice is yours.

                  Additional information about rental rates

                  Fees and Rental Conditions:

                  • Property Damage Protection $49
                  • Taxes Not included

                  Notes:

                  CdM II has remote metering equipment so as to determine how much or how little electricity individual parties use. Because of this we have not had to raise the rate since 2008. We find it to be a much fairer way to control cost. You can actually monitor your usage online during your stay. This is a great way to teach future generations about conservation.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: The House is owned by David & Mary Caywood. David flies for FedEx and Mary is a retired advertising executive. They own two house's, known as CdM I & II. This is their favorivte of the two and they stay here three months of the year.

                  Why the Owner Chose Nosara:
                  We bought the original Casa de Memphis I in 2007 and naturally we got to know the area and many of the locals very well. One of them was our neighbor, Richard Moffat. Mary loved Richards’s house and so when he decided to move closer to his son in the central valley, we bought the house and it became known as Casa de Memphis II. The two houses are just around the corner from one another, only 75 yards apart.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We enjoy walking to everything. Because the roads are so convoluted most people use the beach to get around. After a while you learn the trails through the jungle and the result is that the community is not so fragmented.
