Nosara house description

Costa Rican Dream Rancho-
TRULY ON THE BEACH !!!
If you ever dreamt of really going 'Native' this house is for you.
This style of home is called a 'Rancho' it is comparable to a Tahitian Style Structure. Constructed of many tropical hard woods with a thatch & tin roof, all open with shutters and sliding doors. No Air Conditioning needed with a constant ocean breeze and ceiling fans throughout the house.
It is nestled in the very center of the pristine horse shoe fishing bay of Playa Garza and the main paved road.
The 100 year old Fishing Village, maintains the original generations of Costa Rican families and a few lucky foreigners that are welcome to live there year round.

You will be surrounded by a community a mostly native Costa Ricans. There are a few scattered homes owned by Ex-pats and Europeans. Playa Garza is un-touristy

Plays Guioness -Nosara is just North of Playa Garza.
There you can find the bigger waves, Surf Schools,Nosara Yoga Institute, Pilates, Restaurants, Harmony Hotel Rentals of Surfboards, Boogey Boards, Bicycles, Cars, ATVs Surf Shops
Live Music, family fun, Organic Markets
Zip Lines, Dune Buggy Tours, Monkey Tour-Refuge with Brenda Bombard
Playa Guioness, is the place to be to surf in Guanacaste
You can only spend so much time everyday surfing, so its
great to be able to return to your place on the beach and in the shade of Playa Garza.

Playa Garza is a complete community, with Public School Church, convenience store & a few little funky beach bars. At the same time, the Village of Garza remains a family oriented calm and peaceful place to relax. Its our slice of paradise and we would hope you would feel the same.
There is only one main paved road that will bring you to Playa Garza all the way from the town of Nicoya.
This one main well traveled sometimes noisy NOt quite the 101 yet, road is recently paved, continues on into the surf beach of Playa Guionnes.AKA Nosara.
Playa Garza is a perfect beach for swimmers, boogey boarders, paddle boarding & beginner surfers right in front of the Rancho.
The Rancho is completely fenced in. The Rancho has the only lawn and garden on the beach. Which has been diligently attended to for more than 25 years.
Once you enter the home, take in fresh Pacific Air take in the views in every direction, we hope you will be totally relaxed. Hit the beach with your book or jump right in the water waiting there for you.
Walk to the southern point fot he bay to find a fresh water river, or as we call it Agua Dulce.

The Rancho is an open home in the tropics we ALWAYS recommend you come prepared with your choice of repellent. Or buy natural repellent at the Harmony Hotel.
This Rancho is perfect for families or groups of people who want to experience what Costa Rica'used'' to be like.

The Rancho comes with a full time housekeeper Monday thru Saturday-Sundays upon request.
The Rancho itself has no need for A/C as the ocean breeze is there there 24-7 to cool you off, accompanied by the beautiful shade of our Almond and Coco-Palm trees. Rock in the chairs or swing in the hammocks..as you have views beyond compare in every direction.
The Pura Vida Life is calling you.
We have 2 Master bedrooms with King Beds ocean view Adjoining bedroom with 2 Queen Canopy Beds.
One brand new set of twin bunk beds in TV room

2 bath rooms

We include daily maid service Monday thru Saturday.
Maids hours of service are from 8am till 4pm. House keeping hours may not be changed without a written request. If you require additional service that can be requested but not included in our rate.
