this house is beautiful, we stayed for 35 days and loved every day there. the pool is incredible we used it every morning and night. magnificent sunsets everyday. the howler monkeys came most evenings. lemon and orange trees right out the door. the owner, paul was great, we kept in touch by whats app and everything we asked or needed was taken care asap. onal the caretaker is such a nice guy, you will love him, any questions or needs he will taken care of. please do yourself a favor and rent this house, for a week or a month you wont be sorry. The view from the infinity pool is beautiful. it was so peaceful and relaxing up on the hill we did not want to leave. you will need a small suv or larger suv to manage the dirt roads. please don't rent a small compact car, there are 2 small streams you have to drive thru going to nosara and you will drag bottom in a small car. personally we miss onal a lot, he was like family to us. big shot out to you, onal. pura vida my friend. we will try to rent this house again next year if we can get it. don't wait book this house now.

Spectacular Views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa de Sol for 2 months. We were very satisfied with the accomandations. The house is large and comfortable. It's really all about the pool though. You will love the views. We would watch the monkeys while relaxing with a piña colada in the pool. The terrace has a lovely dining table that seats 8-10 people easily. The kitchen is well equipped and we made good use of it. There is a small grocery store about 8-10 minutes away that has a good selection. There is also the "Super Nosara" about 30 minutes away. The driving time takes into account the dirt roads.

The owner Paul was very thoughtful and responded quickly throughout our stay. The property manager "Onal" was so nice. He met us at the airport when we arrived and ensured our comfort during our stay. He also makes a great ceviche!

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

Our family (two adults and three children) stayed here for 4 nights in June 2013 and loved it. The home is very secluded and peaceful and the view of the forest and ocean are amazing. The bedrooms/baths were all very comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. The best feature is the wonderful swimming pool. My kids loved it (we did too).

Paul, the owner, was very responsive and helpful. He provided us with many suggestions about things to do in the area, connected us with local contacts and was very easy to work with.

The area is very remote. You must have a 4WD car. The main road is poor and not tarmacked. The closest village (San Juanillo) is about 5-10 minutes away by car and is tiny. You can get most basic necessities here but you won't find much else (a few restaurants but not much in the way of nightlife or traditional tourist stuff).

The closest beach (in San Juanillo) is very pretty and peaceful. You can swim here which is nice as you many other beaches are only for surfing. If you want a bigger town or more activities (surfing, nightlife, etc) then the town of Nosara isn't too far away (30 min by car).

I wish we could have stayed longer. This is the sort of place where you can really relax and unwind. There are things to do if you want and plenty of nothing (reading, swimming, relaxing) if that's your goal. We would absolutely return and recommend it highly.
