Great spot close to the beach and a pool to cool you off!
"My husband, and two daughters and a friend stayed here for two weeks. It was wonderful. It was the rainy season, but only rained like once a day, for a short bit typically. The house is close to a ton of restaurants and little boutiques. Loved the spot on the beach. It is good to keep track of the tides though, so you know good times for swimming or checking out the tidal pools there. The house was lovely, and we didn't have to use the a/c but a few times. There were iguanas, parrots, coatimundis, and howler monkeys all around the house. So, even hanging by the pool, we easily felt like we were in the jungle. The pool was a welcoming refresher when we got hot and stayed nice and cool as it is shaded. We loved it and will hopefully be back.
The owner, Dave, was great and Tiffany, the manager was very helpful. We were a bit nervous going somewhere like this for the first time, but they were both very helpful with both our arrival and departure.
Thanks for the wonderful stay, Dave,

"I had such a great time, I truly didn't wanted to come back. Of all the South/Central American countries I have visited Costa Rica is my favorite. The ocean is magnificent and the people so friendly. Surfing was a blast, every day great waves. We started using the two boards you left in the cottage to test the waters and then rented boards from "Agua Tibia" for a few days. Weather was great, only one day rained and we took it easy and waited for the rain to pass then back to the water. Love the location of your cottage and it has all what we needed to be comfy. Secluded yet within walking distance from everything. I made friends with the neighbors, the coconut lady, surf shop guys and the two guys who sell coffee cups at the beach. We went to the local supermarket (playa pelada) and bought our groceries there. People at the super were friendly and happy to see us and help us. I think we saved money by cooking at the cottage as the local restaurants are really expensive. I went to a coffee tour up in the mountains (Hojancha), totally worth the drive and got up at 5am every morning to watch the 12 or so monkeys travel to the tree behind your cottage. Check out went on without any issues, Virginie was helpful and friendly. I tried to avoid organico as his prices were stupid high ($6 for a quarter gallon of milk) and there are another 4 little markets like him around the area and charge a fraction of the price.
I will be back for sure."

"This is the second time I've stayed at The Jungle Beach House. It's a great place for a large extended family to enjoy a quiet, relaxing vacation. The Jungle Beach House had several buildings with bedrooms so everyone had a little space. The most popular bedrooms in our crowd were in the air-conditioned building. The pool house had two bedrooms but no air-conditioning, just fans. It tended to get hot in the afternoon, but the rooms cooled off at night. There was some trouble with biting ants in the pool house, but bug spray helped. There were several "more primitive" beds and bedrooms in the Rancho that had fans and mosquito netting to help protect the occupants from nasty bugs. The on-site pool with the convenient lounge chairs and shade was wonderful and the beach was a short walk from the Rancho. Marta, was a wonderful cook and gracious "hostess" during our stay. She took care of our needs and made suggestions on the best places to purchase food. While her English and our Spanish was limited, the Spanish/English dictionary in the Rancho helped us communicate. The Jungle Beach House is within walking distance to some restaurants, surf shops and a small store and within a short drive to other great restaurants in the area. It helps to have a car when staying there, but there was some "taxi" service available via 3-wheelers. The dusty dirt roads in the area made us glad we had a good air-conditioned SUV and weren't exposed to breathing the dust. Overall, this is a great place to relax. Once you "settle in", it's hard to get motivated to leave the compound."

"Nosara offers something for everyone. You can be as active as you want, surfing, hanging out on the beach or going to yoga classes. Or just hang out in the on property, and soak up the sun in a great pool, while being surrounded by a beautiful garden, while waiting for the monkeys to pay a visit or bird watch! Walking distance to the beach, and wonderful restaurants means that you don't need to rent a car! The colorful "casa" is comfortable, charming and clean with beautiful Costa Rican craftsman wood cabinets, tables and chairs. We were 8 on our visit and everyone had their own space and we were not on top of one another. We will be back and would recommend this property to all our friends!"
