Casa Capitan - 'The Captain's Quarters'

Bedrooms 4
Property type house


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Casa Capitan is a 2,500 square foot, four bedroom, three bathroom, Costa Rican masterpiece. From its open-beam teak ceilings, to its hand-carved doors, Casa Capitan is an excellent example of Costa Rica craftsmanship. Casa Capitan’s “L” shape allows the house to support a large group or family, while maintaining everyone’s privacy.

Casa Capitan, is located next to the nature preserve, which allows you to sample all the wildlife, i.e. monkeys, pizotes, raccoons, ant-eaters, hummingbirds, and much more.

Javier Hernandez, our general manager, has created a unique garden and sun area next to the large, rear, patio area that is fabulous for relaxing.

Cant Wait to get back

  • 5 of 5

I am a professional charter captain in SW Florida and came down with a group of 5. We actually stayed in Casa Capitan which is the biggest house they have. The place is great and the staff are even better. From the Freddy who picks you up in the bus, to jenny who made our tico breakfast to Arturo and Javier in the front office who checked in on us all the time to make sure our trip was great. And of course the captains and crews on the Fishing Nosara boats were masters of their crafts. A dream vacation and we are allready planning our return trip. Tell em Captain Charlie sent you.

Simply Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The description of this house does not compare with how beautiful it truly is...The house was very clean and well maintained. Bed linens, bath towels, to kitchen cloths were in order....The staff which assisted us in the stay, could not have been more helpful...Always a friendly smile and there at our needs. I would recommend this and any property in Nosara Paradise rentals.....Could not have been any better or nicer........

We couldn't ask for a better location and accomodations. Our studio was conveniently located within walking distance to shops, restaurants, the bakery, Playa guiones(beach). The mini mart is right in front. Very safe area. The staff at Nosara Paradise Rentals were very friendly & helpful. No communication barrier. We definitely will stay there again.

Our stay was great, a private, perfectly located and appointed getaway. I've referred friends and family who agree that this is not only a great bargain, but a great place to stay. Located behind Cafe de Paris, with all the ammenities, excellent food, gourmet French pastry bakery, combined with the convenience of your own private home away from home, within walking distance of Playa Guionnes, a superb beach and surf break. No better place to stay on the Guanacaste Peninsula.

I feel compelled to add a few more wife felt she was getting close to maximum letters to comment with!

If you need a taxi from Liberia you need to ask for Freddie from La Cosana Restaurant. Maybe Craig (owner of Casa Tranquilla)can hook you up as we don't have his number. He actually owns and cooks at this restaurant which is about 10 minutes heading to the Town of Nosara.

He's a hard worker and a fast driver in his 10 seat Toyota van! The restaurant is open, with interesting stone statues and murals.

We also tried and enjoyed Miss Sky canopy tour, zipping thru the forest.

Cafe de Paris is a 3 minute walk for any meal or drink, internet and a remarkable trendy bakery. BRING A CALCULATOR WITH YOU! Watch the money exchange...if you have american $ and bill is in colones figure it ahead of time, someone tried to charge me $10 for 2 Coronas! And some places include a tip right into the bill...only 10% but we were way overtipping until we noticed that in small print.

Pura Vida to all new visitors to CR!
