About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom. Kitchen, Satellite TV, Internet. Pool, close to beach.

The house is centrally located in Playa Guiones, 6 kms from the town of Nosara. We are a leisurely 5 min walk to the beach. Surfing is consistently good all year and surfers rave about the quality and selection.

From our central location it is possible to walk to a number of restaurants and bars. There are 2 banks with ATMs as well as mini-marts for small items like beer, soft drinks and snacks. There are 3 super markets for groceries and major items nearby.

The house has a small pool surrounded by a beautifully landscaped property. Great for cooling off during the day or a dip before bed. There are 2 bedrooms, each with private bathroom and AC. The house is designed to allow fans in the living area to keep it cool by way of the roof vents.

We have a full kitchen and BBQ for cooking. The living area has satellite TV, WiFi and entertainment center for music that can handle iPods and MP3 players. The patio area outside the front door is great in the evenings for relaxing after dinner or shade in the afternoon.

There is secure parking if you have a rental vehicle. We also have a local land line phone if you want to make reservations for dinner.

Restaurants range from local food to high end gourmet. We have a Spanish "tapas" restaurant, "Tibidabo" literally 1 minute from our doorstep. Read the online reviews, then go there and judge for yourself.

Exceptional Latitudes is a home where you can relax and enjoy the laid back attitude of the community. If you need to stay connected to the outside world, you can. But if you're interested in a place where you can escape from the noise and confusion of your daily life, let us share our beautiful location with you.

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Our trip into Nosara started off a bit rocky; the airlines lost our board bags... Right away we contacted Tiffany, the property manager, to assist us with location issues with delivery of the boards once they arrived from Florida. She was super accommodating with her guided directions with baggage claims. Once we arrived (a day late) Tiffany was there to greet us and help us settle in. We loved it. Every minute of it. The location was perfect for us as this was our first time in Nosara. Her knowledge of Nosara and local resources was very impressive! So many wonderful things- excellent security, perfect pool for hot afternoons and late night swims with the kids, hut for rainy afternoon naps in the hammock, and the list goes on... Linens, well stocked kitchen, clean, you name it. I would recommend this space for future rentals undoubtedly. So nice to be right in the center of Guiones without feeling like you were 'right in the center'! Sunsets a must, Le Luna, Beach Dog, El Chivo, and even the small grocery right up the road- all wonderful. Best wishes! ( a car was necessary for our travels with two of our children, we also rented a quad for the week- I highly recommend it!)

Owner's Response: My wife and I are always touched when we hear that someone has been able to feel comfortable and relaxed in our home in Playa Guiones. Costa Rica is such a wonderful country to visit and allowing others to share in that experience has always been important to us. Our team there works very hard to make our guests feel special and assist whenever possible. Thank you for sharing your thoughts and kind words with us. We invite others to make us a part of your Costa Rican vacation plans.

Very comfortable, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted to find the property just as it was represented, which has not always been our rental experience. The accommodations were very clean and spacious, and the pool was great for the hot afternoons. The location was easily accessible to restaurants and bars, as well as shopping and a small grocery. The Tibidabo restaurant down the street is not to be missed, as well as the Beach Dog Café. Since the property has a grill, we often went to the local fish market for seafood for the evening meal, as well as patronizing the vendors down the street, who had a wonderful variety of fresh fruits and vegetables.

A car is not really necessary, but of course helpful for days trips. Communication with Don was excellent, as he provided much useful information beforehand.

Excellent Car Free, private location, nice pool and lush garden

  • 5 of 5

My wife, 5 month old son and I spent a month at this home in Playa Guiones and had a great time. Great location for those going car free as we did. 5-7 min walk to the beach and 3-5 min walk to the main road in Guiones, located beside an excellent restaurant called Tibidabo.

Pool was great and we spent countless hours lounging in the covered outdoor patio area. Functional and well stocked kitchen with a bonus BBQ.

Good communication with the owner, Don as well.

Playa Guiones
Car: recommended

Playa Guiones has consistent high quality surfing all year round. Surfers rave about the breaks and variations. There are plenty of surf shops for rentals and lessons.

In September and October the Ostional Wildlife Refuge, 10kms north of Nosara, is the site of the Olive Ridley Turtle "arribadas". Thousands of turtles come on shore at night to lay eggs on the black sand beach. Tours are tightly controlled by the local community to protect the turtles and prevent the poaching of eggs.

Nosara is one of the only tourist destinations in Costa Rica to restrict large scale hotel and condo developments. The result is a quiet, laid back atmosphere that truly exemplifies the term "Pura Vida".

The community has received a Blue Flag environmental award for the ecologically sound way they maintain the beaches and surrounding area. The water is crystal clear and the beaches are virtually free of any commercial development.

Playa Guiones is home the the Nosara Yoga Institute which is a world class yoga training center makeing it a great place for massage therapy and yoga instruction.

Local farms and ranches provide fresh meat and produce daily and Playa Garza 10kms south is renowned for deep sea fishing. Local fish markets and mobile fish vendors offer a wide selection of fish and other seafood.

Visitors consistently comment on how unique Nosara is. Great surf and sun. Friendly people and relaxing attitude. It is truly a gem amoung tourist destinations in the world.

If you are looking for the hustle and clutter of an all-inclusive resort, you should probably look elsewhere. But if you truly want to relax and take time to experience a way of life that produces an unusually high number of people who live to 100 years or more, come and visit Nosara and it's beaches. Find out what Pura Vida means first hand and let Exceptional Latitudes provide you with a place to do it.

Nosara is known for it's low key approach to development. Our house is tucked away off the main road to the beach but is only minutes from most everything you might need - including the beach. We are literally right in the middle of the surrounding jungle with a protected green space behind our home. You will see and hear, on a regular basis, Howler monkeys, pisotes, iguanas. racoons, squirrels, and a small green iguana that lives under our pool. This is also a bird watchers paradise and there are dozens of species that live in the surrounding canopy. The jungle comes alive at night and the sounds are incredible. Our beach, Playa Guiones, is world famous for it's consistent year surf conditions. 13kms north of us is the Ostional Wildlife Reserve where, during an "arribada", you can take a guided tour when thousands of Olive Ridley turtles lay eggs on the beach. Be a part of a stunning natural environment, right outside your front door.
