Property description

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.

Other Amenities

  • 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....moreless

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.
