Property description

A mere three minute walk to the Playa Pelada beach near the town of Nosara, Casa Tranquila is nestled in the quiet four home community of Rio Mar where wildlife such as howler monkeys, iguanas, pizotes (catamundi), hummingbirds, and red squirrels are common place. Enjoy the early morning wildlife visits and scenic garden as you swing in the front porch hammock enjoying your morning brew of Costa Rican coffee. Playa Pelada is a, less-traveled, scenic beach where beach front construction/developments are prohibited, leaving the beach and jungle shoreline pristine. The natural and uncompromised beauty of the beach coupled with the family friendly community of Pelada allows for a relaxing and quiet retreat during your stay.
Casa Tranquila is a two bedroom, two bath open floor plan cottage with custom made furnishings and decor. The Spanish influenced cottage with a vaulted cupola is fully air conditioned and includes wireless internet, phone, alarm system, washer/dryer, full kitchen, a safe sized to fit laptop computers, and a storage room with ample room for surf boards. Fully equipped for sleeping four, the house has a queen size bed in the master bedroom and (2) twin beds in the guest bedroom making this house perfect for a small family.
Casa Tranquila’s centralized location is within walking distance of the Nosara river for fishing, boating, and horseback riding. Start your morning with a yoga class at the Nosara Resort (2 min walk) or the nearby, world renown Nosara Yoga Institute which specializes in providing yoga teacher training. Choose to hike the jungle path from the beach up to the Nosara Biological Reserve where a sprawling 90 acres of botanical beauty and wildlife makes bird watching a joy. During low tide, navigate over the volcanic rock and wade through the water to explore Pelada’s bat cave. Surfers also frequent Playa Pelada and a 10 min walk places you at the neighboring, surfing beach of Playa Guiones which offers some of the most consistent year-round surf. For the thrill seeker in you, Miss Sky Canopy Tour, the longest zip line in the world, is located within 1km. Nearby Ostional Wildlife Refuge protects marine turtle species and the “arribadas” at this beach are considered the largest in the world, with as many as a million sea turtle eggs laid in the beach nesting areas each year. As your day winds down, enjoy meeting the local community at sunset as homeowner’s make the evening “pilgrimage” to the beach to catch the last glimpse of the day’s sun in a picturesque and color-changing sky.
Nearby restaurants within walking distance include La Luna and Olgas for beach side dining, Il Pepporoni for pizza/sports bar, La Garta Lodge with a Sunset Bar that overlooks the mouth of the Nosara river.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I originally came to Nosara in 2005 to train at the Nosara Yoga Institute (NYI). I fell in love with the people and the charm of the area and returned the following year to buy a house. I continue to stay connected to and now consult for NYI. This place has a way of drawing people who tend to stay (e.g., ~10% of my graduating class at NYI moved to Nosara). Nosara holds a special place in my heart and is the place I feel most at home and where I can be my truest self in all of my world travels. Whether you are coming for the first time or a return visit, I think you will experience the magic of Nosara on your visit.

Why the Owner Chose Nosara:
I wanted a quaint and cozy cottage feel that was close to the beach. This house was under construction and I was able to make some design changes to suit my needs. This house has been under one owner since its construction.
