About Joe

Owned by a large family from California, we enjoy getting away for some winter warmth and some of the most consistent surf conditions in the world!

Joe purchased this House in 2011

Why Joe chose Playa Pelada

Casa Ventana is one of few properties that takes advantage of its unique proximity to both Playa Guiones and Playa Pelada. It is located on the point right behind La Luna restaurant. Walk to either beach in minutes and enjoy the surf or sunset cocktails on one of the most beautiful beaches in all of Costa Rica. You can't beat Nosara, once you get here you will not want to leave...

What makes this House unique

Walk to surf and hear the ocean from Casa Ventana, calmer waters and family friendly beach of Pelada less than 200 meters! Gorgeous patio amongst the trees and monkeys with a peek of an ocean view. La Luna, the most romantic restaurant in Nosara, within shouting distance. Come and enjoy the surf and yoga that Nosara is renowned for.

Have the best of both worlds. 5 min walk to surfing at north end of Guiones and less than 2 min to Pelada- one of the most beautiful beaches in all of Costa Rica. Last house on the left of upper Pelada rd. Walking distance to many restaurants including the romantic La Luna

                                                              We spent 4 weeks in the sun enjoying the local Nosara food, people, and two stunning beaches and sightseeing up and down the coast and central Costa Rica. Casa Ventana is ideally located between the touristy area and the local downtown providing a mix of all we wanted to do. We loved listening to the Howler monkies while drinking coffee on the porch early in the mornings and again while drinking martinis on the porch late afternoon. We would recommend renting a car at the airport but be prepared for the inescapable, high rental insurance costs.

                                                              Love Nosara!

                                                              We just returned from a relaxing stay and the house fit our needs perfectly. Enjoyed many nights drinking pina coladas on the deck. Playa Pelada is amazing for sunsets and La Luna is not to be missed. The short walk to the beach made taking kids back to the house for naps and snacks a breeze

                                                              I had a wonderful time staying in the upper unit with my husband and child. The house is located in walking distance to 2 great beaches. It was very nice to walk to the beach rather than drive. The house doesn't have AC but, we found that it was not necessary.The house stayed cool throughout the day and night . We look forward to our next stay.

                                                              A month of Bliss

                                                              I originally came to Nosara for a two week visit. The day after I arrived I took the very short walk down to the beaches and instantly realized I needed to extend my vacation. The house is in the perfect spot as it is so near not one but 2 amazing beaches with one having good surf daily, ( I surfed or body surfed every day for a month straight). The house itself is designed well and is located in a quiet spot that is near every thing one could want. The people of Nosara and surrounding areas are Awesome. If cooking isnt your thing, I highly recommend Rancho Tico as a dinner spot. I am all ready planning my next trip with my family and I will be staying at this house again.

                                                              Perfect location, amazing beaches and surf

                                                              We stayed in Nosara over new years and enjoyed perfect weather. The house is perfectly located (ala the title) between playa pelada and guiones. We hit the surf in the am at guiones then relaxed in the afternoon under the trees at pelada watching the surf hit the blow hole and fishermen come in with their catches. The house is well appointed with on demand hot water, washer dryer, bbq for the cooking up the daily catch, and beach supplies. La Luna, one of the best resataurants in town with a vast menu of appetizing dishes and cocktails is a 2 minute walk away and don't miss out on the filet with jalapeno sauce at Racho tico in town. The house was safe, comfortable, and the best value in Nosara for it's 5star location with all the amenities one could want for a surf or family vacation.

                                                              LOVE this spot!

                                                              Stayed at the Casa Ventana this last fall and had an excellent time. The house has the most amazing location in Nosara, just between two gorgeous beaches. Perfect for surfing, swimming, or just walking to a restaurant to have a drink and watch the sun set over the Pacific. The house was an excellent layout, with a huge deck to chill on. Property was clean and easy to stay at! Looking forward to returning to Noasara later this year and hoping to stay at the Casa Ventana again!


                                                              Playa Pelada, Costa Rica

                                                              Nosara has a wealth of options to keep the traveler entertained. The main draws are the areas beaches- Playa Guiones for surfing, Playa Pelada for swimming, fishing and amazing sunset restaurants. Playa Nosara, Ostional and San juanillo are locaed to the north. Playa Garza is a relaxed fishing village with seafood restaurants fronting the sand. Ostional is known for its great beach break for surfing and the monthly migration or 'Arribada 'of the thousands of turtles to come and lay their eggs- an amazing sight not to be missed. Nosara is also home to the world renowned Nosara Yoga Institute which offers teacher training courses and yoga of all stripes. There are a myriad of other yoga and healthy living related outfits offering classes, seminars, retreats and private services. Spas, massage therapists and personal trainers are at your disposal. Nosara hosts a dozen surf schools and was reviewed by the NY Times as THE place to learn to surf. There are plenty of dining options spread throughout Nosara. Seafood restaurants specializing in the locally caught catch of the day, Costa Rican Cuisine, Italian, American, French, Mexican, Thai, Sushi, Gelato, and even private chefs available to cater to your needs. Some personal favorites are Rancho Tico in Nosara Centro for typical Costa Rican cuisine and the best steaks, pizza and ceviche in town. La Luna for oceanfront mediterranean cuisine and Kaya Sol for breakfast and affordable healthy options. Seekret Spot Gelato run by an Iltalian surfer expat is also a must. You will not run out of options for cuisine and that may be the toughest decision you make while on vacation- where to eat next? Nosara also offers a local airport, Red cross, tourist and local police, shuttle and taxi services, many rental car agencies, ATV and dune buggy rentals, bicycle and surfboard rentals and local buses as well as a daily bus to San Jose. A car is not necessary and a lot of travelers enjoy renting an ATV for the week to explore the mountains and beaches. The Nosara River (Rio Nosara) runs through the town and meets the ocean at the north end of Playa Pelada. Here there is a nature reserve to view the amazing and varied wildlife of the area.(Lagarta Lodge is one of the best options in town for sunset cocktails and is perched on the cliffs overlooking the river and Playa Nosara). You can rent kayaks or stand up paddleboards through a local operator to explore the river up close. The river mouth or 'La Boca' as the locals call it is a great spot for surf fishing and can also produce barreling waves. Sportfishing is also a main draw of the area. Most of the boats depart from Playa Garza and offer a myriad of options for deep sea or inshore fishing. Trips can be arranged through tour operators or just asking at one of the restaurants on the beach in Playa Garza. There is a brand new skatepark and climbing wall as well as a tennis club that are sure to become main attraction for the area. Also one of the largest Zip lines in the country is operated by Miss Sky Canopy tours and cannot be missed. There is so much to do that you may have to extend your vacation. Casa Ventana is available for long term rental and is managed by a local family that is more than willing to assist you in making your vacation the most enjoyable! Maid service, childcare and personal chefs are all available- just ask. We hope you enjoy your stay in Nosara- (impossible not to!) and hope you choose the affordable and ideally located Casa Ventana as your home base.
