Dos Palmeras is a new, executive holiday three-bedroom home located in the peaceful and secluded EE Las Huacas region of Nosara.
Nestled in the hills above beautiful Guiones beach, Dos Palmeras is perfect for individuals looking for peace and quiet while remaining just a short drive from an assortment of popular restaurants, shops, and the beach itself (approx. 3km). With a large kitchen/living room area, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a 35 foot infinity-edge pool, this home is ideal for families or groups of friends looking for a small piece of paradise in Costa Rica’s Guanacaste region.
The beautiful and spacious granite kitchen, kept cool by a large vaulted ceiling and fans, is fully equipped, complete with a gas range and a large refrigerator. With a unique open-concept design, the living room and master bedroom open fully to the terrace and pool beyond, giving one the sense of living outdoors. The home can also be completely secured with sliding doors and roll down motorized curtains for safety purposes. We also have multiple safes for your valuables.
The dining area on the terrace offers a breezy, sheltered eating experience with views out to the infinity pool and surrounding jungle. Wildlife is abundant, with howler monkeys passing by daily.
The bedrooms are all outfitted with king size beds but those in both guestrooms can be separated into two twin beds, depending upon your needs. A/C is available in all of the bedrooms, but with the gentle hilltop breezes and the house’s open design, you might just find that you don’t even need it. The house sleeps six.
Other features include: wireless internet, TV, BBQ, safety bars or roll down curtains on all openings, safes, and an alarm system that is monitored by phone by a security service. We have a large water tank, so when the water is turned off in Guiones for part of the day or night, which happens quite often in the High Season/Dry season, you will have water available all the time.
Costa Rica has recently implemented a 13% sales tax on short term rentals of 21 days or less. The tax does not apply to longer term rentals.
Enjoy your stay in beautiful Nosara. Pura Vida

Beautiful house on hill in jungle setting.
We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful, well-appointed house in Guiones. The drive up and down the hill and into town or beach takes about 10 minutes, as it is steep, curvy and dirt. The house feels very secluded in a jungle setting, even though there are houses all around. The pool and patio are lovely and we would sit and watch and listen to the wildlife (monkeys, parrots).
Our 2 college age daughters wished we were within walking distance to the beach, but loved the pool. There was something for everyone - surfing and zip lining, relaxing & walking on the beach (that has no development, so is quite pristine), having lunch or dinner at one of several good restaurants. One of the things I love about Costa Rica is the healthy lifestyle and fresh, organic food. The fruits and vegetables were wonderful. The houses are close together and one night our neighbors had a loud party until 2 a.m., however only one of us was wakened by it! The howler monkeys wake you up in the morning, but they only howl for a few minutes.
Phillip was very helpful with directions and making sure we had everything we needed.
It was one of the best family vacations we have had!
Thanks for the great review. We are so pleased you enjoyed staying in our house and your visit to Nosara. As you were here over Christmas the neighbours were likely in a festive mood but when we stay in the house we hardly hear anyone. We do agree that the monkeys are early risers and unlikely to change their habits.
Not being within walking distance of the beach does have it's advantages in that it is much more peaceful than the busy main sections of town and I'm sure the frequency of parties and late night revelry occur more frequently. We sometimes drive down a few times in a day: to the beach, to the supermarket, to a restaurant or some of the local activities but in the balance find the solitude quite rewarding.
Please visit us again.
Thanks for sharing your great house with my family. Really enjoyed the way you guys take care of the house and how it feels like it’s part of the jungle. My kids were up and in the pool every morning and loved the pizote and monkeys and iguanas. My daughter liked the monkey viewing platform out in the trees. We zip lined, rented quads for day and even found horses down at nosara river mouth. I was surprised by the security bars, guard and amount of theft in the area but we didn’t have any problems when we were there and I felt safe with my family but was always sure to use the alarm and security bars. I spoke with the pool guys and the gardener and they seemed nice and were keeping things up well. The gardener had nice things to say about you as the owner and I appreciated that too. Hope you and your family get to go back soon and enjoy the Pura Vida.
Thanks for the great feedback Tim. We are so pleased you enjoyed your visit to Nosara and more importantly our house. We specially asked our architect to preserve and incorporate the lush vegetation around the house to give the feeling of living in the jungle. That's what we all go to Costa Rica for. It also allows the animals to get close. Our gardener is a great guy and helps us improve our Spanish.
Had an amazing stay. A perfect blend of indoor/outdoor living...
Loved the pool and the open concept common area. Very relaxing
Scott and Sasha,

Oasis in the Jungle
Dos Palmeras, located just far away enough from the town of Playa Guiones, was a perfect vacation home for our family of 4. The jungle setting, open floorpan, overall quality of the house & pool were exactly what we were looking for.
Thank you to Phillip and his management team for making our trip to Guiones the perfect experience for our family.
Thanks Larry. Glad that you found the house and the location to your liking.
We hope to see you again one day.
It was an amazing getaway. The owners are great the management company is great. Overall experience was great. Nothing bad to say about this place. I would go and stay there again for sure.
Jonathon, we are so pleased you had an enjoyable time in Nosara and were happy with the choice of our home in which to spend your vacation. You will be most welcome to return anytime.
Playa Guiones/Nosara is famous for its 4 km long beach, with a steady break for surfing, its many yoga studios as well as the Yoga Institute, a healthy lifestyle with a varied assortment of menu items in the numerous restaurants and a good selection foods in the supermarkets. The zip-line at Miss Sky is reportedly the longest in Costa Rica.
