Nosara house description

This two bedroom, two bath cottage is a short walk from the beach. Beach front homes are forbidden by law to keep the natural area intact. You may walk to the beach through the jungle with pesoti, land crabs, monkeys and other wild life or you might bypass the jungle and go on to the beach. The house is air conditioned for those who prefer, but there are also screens on all the windows and front door for those wanting fresh air. There are ceiling fans throughout and floor fans are available upon request.

The kitchen is stocked for cooking family meals; however, with the best laid plans of most who stay here, the restaurants are so many, convenient and good that most people throw away more food than they cook. Enjoy a nice day at the beach, whether sun bathing, swimming, surfing, snorkeling, fishing, walking or just reading a book. Then head to La Dolce Vita for fine Italian, Marlin Bills for freshly caught fish, Harbor Reef for a burger & fries, Giardino Tropical for pizza, Robins for a healthy sandwich and home made ice cream & cookies, Freddie's for local cuisine or any of the other fine eateries.

Some days you may spend the whole day by the pool just reading or napping and others you may go on one of the great guided quad rides. The next day you might spend half the day on a zip line through the rolling hills or horse back-riding. Canoe trips are great fun and a night trip to the turtle beach can be most rewarding.

There are shops for buying local craft. The local woodcraft and pottery is excellent.

Hopefully you packed light! There is a laundry room off the back bedroom with a washer & dryer to keep those beach clothes feeling fresh. Indoor surf board storage is provided so the boards can be kept inside, but not in the way.

If you just have to keep in touch, there is free secure WiFi in the house and on the front porch. There is a phone for local calls. (Local calls in Costa Rica are anywhere in the country).

Or, just maybe you came to attend the International Yoga Institute.

Come, relax, enjoy!

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About: We went to Costa Rica in 2003 looking for a place to consider. We were in country for 72 hours when we found this house, then under construction, and bought it on the spot. It is the place we go when we want to be with new friends, take old friends to enjoy time together or just to have quiet time alone. If you enjoy doing the things listed in the write-up in a place where there are no train whistles, police sirens, factories spewing smoke and ash, cars doing 90 miles an hour (most speed limits are 55 or less, heed them and keep your money); then this may be the place for you.

                      Why Nosara:
                      When you are in Nosara, be sure to wear your smile. Most everyone will say 'Buenos Dias', or some other greeting of the day. Don't be surprised if you are walking and a farmer in his truck or on a horse offers you a ride. We have had both happen. This is a great community with wonderful people.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      One of my favorite things to do is to get up early and walk the beach for an hour or more before the sun comes up over the hill to the east. It just gets me in the mood for a relaxed day.
