About the property

Estate, 8 Bedrooms + Loft, 6.5 Baths, (Sleeps 18-20)

The Jungle Beach House is an amazing group accommodation: Three separate buildings with a total of 8 bedrooms can accommodate up to 20/22 persons. Great for large groups, multiple families, reunions, weddings, corporate / educational retreats. This unique place is what vacationing in the tropics is all about.

The Jungle Beach House has its own private walkway to the beach (1 min. walk) so falling asleep to the sounds of surf is a definite. This large property is very private, lushly landscaped and has a swimming pool, covered parking and many great features.

The primary gathering area is in the oldest building, the Rancho, a rustic rancho open to the outdoors with soul. It has a gigantic open air porch complete with hammocks and comfy couches, two bedrooms, a living room, two dining areas, convenient bathroom and a large kitchen.

There is also the newest area: Private Swimming Pool / Cabina compound which contains two private bedrooms with additional loft area and private full bathrooms (mirror images of each other) both are adjacent to the large pool.

Finally, there is the Main Guest House which has 4 bedrooms, including a master suite, complete with central A/C. Two of the upstairs bedrooms include private, rustic balconies that overlook the grounds.

Weekly rental includes 5 day week maid service and our amazing staff will cook breakfast and lunch (guests procures food). In addition to being just steps along a private access to area's the best beach, Playa Guiones, the house is a short walk to several excellent restaurants...Casa Romantica, Gilded Iguana, Kaya Sol and Giardino Tropicale. Both the Super Mini Market and the Frog Pad/NosaraNet (DVD/book rentals & internet cafe) are also just a short walk away: on-site, 40' flat screen TV with DVD player, broadband wireless internet (5mb service - fastest in Nosara) and telephone.

The property has three buildings:

Main House: 3 bedrooms upstairs, 1 bedroom downstairs, all have AC

Master Bedroom: 1 king, private bath, flat screen tv

Bedroom 2: 1 double, 1 single, shared bath with bedroom 3

Bedroom 3: 1 double, shared bath with bedroom 2

Bedroom 1: 1 king, 1 double, 1 half bath (toilet/sink - no shower, use outdoor shower)

Bedroom 2: 1 double, 1 sink (use Rancho half bath and outdoor shower)

Rancho has a half bath next to the two bedrooms. Rancho bedrooms are simple but comfortable.  They are close to the common space of kitchen, dining area, sitting area and hammocks so noisier if people are hanging out late or kids are getting up early.  There are three outdoor showers on the property that Rancho bedroom guests use.

Kitchen & Dining:

Three bars/counters with nine bar stools (can seat nine comfortably)

Two dining tables pushed together can seat 10-12 comfortably.

About The Owner

The Jungle Beach House is co-owned by two families, the Robertsons from Georgia and the Yerkes from Vermont. We love Nosara for its beaches, mountains, restaurants and people.

The Owner purchased this estate in 2012

Why The Owner chose Playa Guiones

We have travelled all over Costa Rica since we first went to the Osa Peninsula for our honeymoon in 2000. We love so much of the country but we find Nosara to be the standout of the standouts. It's magical and there is no other place like it.

What makes this estate unique

1 minute walk to beach on beautiful, private path. Closest property to beach in area. We are one of only a couple private homes in Nosara that have their own private beach path. 5 minute walk to great restaurants and gourmet grocery store. Ultra Private Pool with swim up seating, adjacent to conservation area. Morning coffee or tea to the sound of nearby wildlife and howler monkeys. Morning walks on the beach; gourmet Costa Rican Breakfast and Lunch, take and afternoon swim in the ocean or pool. Make your day complete with an evening ritual walk to take in the world's most amazing sunsets. After dinner, walk to the beach where you can almost touch the Milky Way with more stars than you have likely ever seen!

Fantastic group accommodation in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We love the Jungle Beach House! We just finished our 4th spring break at the Jungle Beach House and can’t wait to go back. My family has gone with groups of friends each time, the property can accommodate lots of people. My children look forward to going every year, to the private pool, to the amazing chef Marta, to the quick private path walk down to the amazing beach as well as the short walk into town for juices & dinners. There is so much to love in this area of Costa Rica and the Jungle Beach House is a gem of a property. It is everything that vacationing in the tropics should be!

Family loved home, incredible service, direct beach access - brilliant

  • 5 of 5

This is such a warm, thoughtful and loved home. The Rancho is 30+ years old and has such unbelievable character - truly an original building to the region. It is a sprawling compound that has none of the typical "Target decoration" crap like many other VRBO rentals. This one has a story with every element to it. Marta and Javier (I think that's how you spell it) took care of everything - the shopping, the food, the cleaning, even the pool cleaning. Unbelievable.

This house is a rare "on the beach" booking opportunity. The surfing right at the end of the path was the best we found among all the other local beaches. The action at dusk on the beach - all the visitors and the sunset at the end is a highlight.

This is a special, unique opportunity to see Nosara. Just be careful. Be smart about locking everything at every hour. Nosara and the area has some theft and petty crimes so you have to be diligent about minding your property. They have all the necessary locks/safes at the house so just make sure you actually use it all.

Thank you Polly and Jaime for sharing your home. You truly have a unique, original gem.

Jungle House Nosara is the perfect spot, especially for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

Jungle House provides all you need for a relaxing beach vacation. Marta is the best cook and hostess. What a relief not to have to think about shopping, cooking and cleaning. The beach was as beautiful as we remembered and we’ll all be dreaming of the perfect Nosara sunsets, culminating with a double rainbow, as we try to make it through the last months of winter here in New England! It’s hard to believe that this trip could have surpassed our last but really...DOUBLE rainbow on our last night! :). Looking forward to a return in 2020!

Fantastic place for family or group vacation!

  • 5 of 5

It's even better than the pictures. There were 8 adults and we could have easily fit more. steps to great surf morning, noon and night. And lots of space to lounge in rancho, hammocks, or out at the pool. Marta cooked us wonderful breakfasts and lunches - we didn't have to spend time planning, shopping or preparing. Lots of local options in town for drinks and dinners. Stress free, relaxing vacation!

Fabulous location. Real Beach experience.

  • 5 of 5

If you want a bland five star four seasons experience just like every other one, this is not for you. If you want a true coastal beach experience, you will love jungle Beach house. Natural rancho with beautiful vegetation. Walk to Beach. Great pool.

Great place for family and friend accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We felt the Jungle House was a luxury compound that afforded privacy for a large family gathering. The sleeping accommodations were perfect! Our favorite amenity included Marta(chef) and Jardin(caretaker). The meals were delicious and she was gracious and arranged for grocery delivery.

The pool area was well appointed and a favorite spot too!

Beach access included a path of lush foliage and butterflies and was a two minute walk to the beach! Long beach walks were part of our daily routine.

Rent this place!!!!
