About Joel Rose

We fell in love with Guiones when we first visted with our family in 2009. Like many before us, we bought property shortly thereafter and built Casa de las Rosas, which was our dream house, inspired by traditional Japanese homes and the case study houses of the American mid-century. We travel to Guiones 4 or 5 times yearly to surf and swim and escape from hectic New York City life.

Joel Rose purchased this house in 2010

Why Joel Rose chose Playa Guiones

It is our theory that houses are happiest with people in them. With our kids still in school and work in New York, the five weeks a year that we are able to visit doesn’t make our home lived in enough! We hope to share it with you.

What makes this house unique

There is not a person who visits our home here in Nosara without being totally blown away by its unique beauty, ambience, and warmth. Sunrises and sunsets through the jungle foliage provides some of the most unique and beautiful moments imaginable. The swimming pool, the birds, the abundance of wildlife, Casa de las Rosas is all about going to a different place, a place lovely and laid back, a place to collect yourself and cool out. You will love it as we do. Can't wait to be back!

Perfect vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

We are just back from a one week family holiday with 3 teenagers and thoroughly enjoyed this property. Joel was very responsive throughout the information/booking/stay. The photos and description on the website are accurate. The house is clean and well maintained. The kitchen is fully equipped making it possible to prepare family meals (and drinks!) at home.

Nosara is an awesome surfing/swimming/sunbathing spot. We had great meals and fabulous afternoon ice cream breaks in town. We highly recommend this property.

Amazing Beautiful Home, Total Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my family (kids 8 and 12). It was absolutely breath taking. So tranquil and zen. We loved the architecture, it was wonderful to have the privacy of the master suite away from the second bedroom building. We slept soundly and enjoyed the sounds of nature. The kids loved the pool. The house is very well maintained and secure. The caretakers are lovely people and the owners were exceptionally helpful helping us with our booking and explaining exactly the location and all the house has to offer. I dream of this house and to someday return.The area has lots of great food and cute shopping and the beaches magnificent.
