About Jennie Edwards

We purchased this house just 9 months after our first trip to Nosara. We instantly fell in love with this dusty little surf town! For us it's all about being able to spend our vacation in flip flops with surf and yoga just around the corner, with fresh food at fantastic restaurants just minutes away. We leave here feeling healthier and more relaxed than ever.

Why 'Casa Prana'? It's all about how we feel when we spend time here…

Prana (प्राण, prāṇa) is the Sanskrit word for 'life force'; in yoga, Oriental medicine, and martial arts, the term refers to a cosmic energy believed to come from the sun and connecting the elements of the universe. The universal principle of energy or force, responsible for the body's life, heat and maintenance, prana is the sum total of all energy that is manifest in the universe.

Jennie Edwards purchased this house in 2014

Why Jennie Edwards chose Nosara

This house has the rare combination of ocean view and close proximity to the surf. Not many homes in this area can claim that - just a few, really!

After staying in different areas of Guiones we realized we would prefer to be away from the traffic and dust the busy season can bring. Guiones Beach Club is in the quiet K section and has 24-hour security - peace of mind for us and for our guests.

Well located holiday home close to the beach

  • 4 of 5

We were happy to find that the house was indeed very close to the beach and also in walking distance of the surfschool (Aqua Tibia), yoga (Harmony Hotel (the aerial yoga being a great thing to try! and Nosara Yoga Institute) and restaurants. The central and safe location is definitely a great bonus of this house. Due to the rainy season some of the roads were muddy and on foot difficult to manage, but by car it was fine. The house is pleasantly organized, with an open area kitchen with all major amenities and a large dining table and sitting area outside. We enjoyed the presence of all the easy reading pockets in the living room. The pool has a perfect size to cool down and to play with the children and there are plenty of relaxing chairs as well as a hammock. We liked the fact that there were two safes and a big bodega which could be closed off as well. Also with the 24hr security gate closeby we felt very safe.

We had some issues with wasps outside, but the management company resolved it very quickly and responded straight away. It was difficult to keep the ants out but it was no real problem. The screen door to the kitchen probably needs replacement in the near future.

In the area 2 other houses are being built, one is almost finished. There is no building noise, but in one of the bedrooms you are able to hear early morning building traffic. As Europeans we would have liked the curtains to black out a little more daylight, but that's a personal preference.

Casa Prana 10 day stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I just got back from a 10 day stay at Casa Prana in July.

This place is pretty amazing! We got it for the closeness to the beach (3-4 minute walk), and because it has a pool which is great for the kids.

the rooms all had AC which we really didn't use, but was nice at times.

There are amazing butterflies in the pool area, as well as birds flying around the property.

The house is in a gated, secure area which is really gives you peace of mind with the family staying there.

The furniture is not the most comfortable, but we didn't mind too much.

Otherwise I would totally recommend a stay at Casa Prana!

Clean, comfortable, good location

  • 5 of 5

Casa Prana was a very nice house with all amenities necessary. House was clean and updated, AC in rooms, not living area. Pool was nice (need to remove the crabs every morning, not a big deal). Secure location with a gate, access to beach is easy with a walking path to the south or thru the gate and down the road to the surfing beach by the river mouth. Walk to a few of the restaurants (Beach Dog, Harbor Reef) but most access to Guiones needs to be a car or golf cart. Suggest Gypsy Cab from Liberia and then rent a 4WD car in Guiones for exploring Samara to the south and Ostional to the north. Yeudy, the local rental agent, was very helpful for booking activities (canopy tour, ATV, etc...)

Fantastic Nosara Home- period.

  • 5 of 5

What a pleasure it was to stay at Casa Prana and we hope to return again with our family of two boys again very soon.

The owners could not have been more helpful in dealing with a an unusual and brief "CR environmental" issue with bugs showing up, but were quickly treated and removed.

Our wonderful cook was so great to have in the house as well...

We shall return. Its a wonderful place with great owners and great help.

Excellent house in great location

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 who stayed at Casa Prana and loved it. The pool is great and the location is a short walk to the beach. We had young kids and felt very secure with the security right next door. A comfortable great house with lots of room and next to beach. Great Fun

Wonderful Place!!!!

  • 4 of 5

We spend 2+ weeks at this amazing house! It was perfectly located to the beach (two ways to walk - we called them Lizard Lane or Monkey Way) - our boys (ages 4&5) really enjoyed it. The pool was a huge hit - wan a was used, daily! The restaurants in Nosara were really good - loved that they had pools to use while dining. The house was cleaned and well stocked (except for beach toys - bring your own). The property manager was out of town and we had a person that was new and wasn't too informative, but it worked out fine. We felt really safe and very comfortable.
