Property description

The magical village of Playa Nosara is located on the Western Coast of Costa Rica. The area is lush with jungle flowers and trees and hosts abundant wildlife..howler monkeys, iguanas, toucans and parrots. The Nosara area includes three distinct beach areas, Playa Nosara, Playa Guiones and Playa Pelada where the house is located.

There is a 300 ft easement from the beach to the house that is protected as a wildlife refuge so there is a 5 minute walk. Step through the trees and you find the most beautiful, quiet, white sand beach, great for swimming, beachcombing and sunbathing. A 5 minute walk over a hill and you'll find Playa Guiones, considered one of the best surf spots on the central peninsula.

Within walking distance are great restaurants, ATV rentals, groceries and hotels. All the roads in and around Nosara are unpaved so Jeeps, ATV's and walking are the best methods of transportation. There are shuttle services, tour companies and buses that operate out of Nosara.

For recreational needs there are several surf camps located in the town in addition to surf board rentals and private, daily surf instruction. Located just south of Playa Giones is the famous Nosara Yoga Institute which has regular classes and workshops. There are guided tours to the Refugio Nacional de Fauna Silvestre.

Ostional where you can watch the arrival of the turtles. Or if inactivity is more your desire, spread out your towel on the beautiful white sand beach and listen to the waves and the sea gulls or sit in a rocking chair on the verandah and sip local Tico beer.

If you're looking for a culinary experience, the restaurants in Nosara are very high quality and reasonably affordable. The typical dish, Casados, of rice, beans, plantains and chicken, fish or beef is by far the freshest, best value. There are pizza restaurants, Asian influenced and European restaurants as well.

The house is well appointed with hand made solid teak furniture and bright fabrics. There are two bedrooms downstairs with a queen bed in one and a king size bed in the other bedroom and the upstairs loft has 2 twin beds.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare full gourmet meals or just whip up your mango and pineapple smoothies. There is a good sized combination safe in the closet so you needn't worry about your valuables. Beach towels are provided for your use.

NEW: We have just completed a new outdoor living space including a pool and well equipped ranchito. We promise an unforgettable experience in a one-of-kind spot in what we believe to be an amazingly, beautiful country.
