Guestbook comments from the owner
Our family had a wonderful trip to Nosara and loved Casa La Playa. It's a great house - a few minutes walk to the beach. The house is well-appointed and the lush landscaping and jungle surrounding are full of howler monkeys, coatis, armadillos, iguanas and birds. We'll definitely be back. Thanks

WE KEEP COMING BACK :)

  • 5 of 5
This is our families' third trip to CR and second time staying at Casa la Playa. We love it. My husband is a surfer and it's close to the beach. Actually it's close to everything, groceries, restaurants, internet cafe', surf shops, car rentals. The entire yard is a garden paradise. We sat on the front porch every morning drinking fantastic Costa Rican coffee, bird watching. The wild life is incredible. We always felt safe because a security company was always coming by checking on things.We enjoyed the pool daily. It was a great way to cool off after a day at the beach. We have traveled all over : Hawaii, New Zealand, Bahamas, Tobago. This place is affordable, beautiful, comfortable and we can't wait to return..

ENJOY NATURE'S BEAUTY WITH A CIVILIZED ACCENTS

Enjoy Nature's Beauty With A Civilized Accents
  • 5 of 5
During our first trip to Costa Rica in March, we stayed at Casa la Playa to be near the beach, and we weren’t disappointed. The beach is less than a five-minute walk away, and the quaint little surfing town of Playa Guiones is only a few minutes more. Every evening we headed to the beach with drinks in hand to watch surfers catching their last waves of the day during some really spectacular sunsets.

Casa la Playa was a delight, a small villa on a gentle hill and surrounded by lush landscaping. The shady, cool veranda blends into the swimming pool area. You can lounge in a hammock or catch some sun by the sparkling blue pool. The rooms inside the house are open and airy, and the decoration is authentic Tico (earthy Costa Rican colors and materials).

The first two nights we turned off the air conditioning and enjoyed some cool ocean breezes. The mornings were filled with the sounds of tropical birds and howler monkeys and sunlight lazily filters through the windows.

We were also impressed with the level of security the owners provided. A friendly security service checked the property twice a day. The property has motion detectors that turn on yard lights if needed, and the house even comes with a safe. BTW – everywhere we went “the locals” were very hospitable.

Another plus is the house was high speed Internet, so we could touch base with friends and keep up with world events whenever we wanted

We definitely recommend Casa la Playa to anyone who wants enjoy the incredible natural beauty of Costa Rica without leaving too much of the civilized world behind.

RELAXATION HEADQUARTERS

  • 5 of 5
My family stayed here after a week in the rainforests inland. What a great place to unwind. The beach, which is a few minutes walk away, is fantastic, warm, and with a sandy bottom. A great place to learn to surf or to just play in the warm water. We rented boogie boards from the friendly folks at Nosara Tico Surf School and played in the surf every morning and afternoon.

The house was as advertised: comfortable, quiet and well appointed. We enjoyed hanging out on the porch in the hammock or lounge chairs, and taking dips in the pool. The grounds are very lush, and it's like hanging out in a forest. We could hear howler monkeys and a coati ambled up the side of the property.

We walked to nearby restaurants and small shops, enjoying a typical lunch at Rosie's Tica or ice cream and sandwiches at Robin's. The Harmony Hotel was excellent for lunch and dinner. Casa Tucan was friendly and the food was good and reasonably priced, and Cafe de Paris has very good breakfast pastries. Unfortunately, we can not recommend the Harbor Reef.

The Nosara Yoga Institute is also a short walk away and offers classes in a beautiful setting.

Finally, the management company staff were very courteous when we checked in and out.

We left wanting to return as soon as possible.

CHRISTMAS IN NOSARA

  • 5 of 5
Whether you’ve been coming to Nosara for years or planning your first trip here, you should consider Casa La Playa. My family stayed at this fabulous home over Christmas and loved every minute of it. The location is “rock star” – you can walk to Playa Guiones and the Yoga Institute in less than five minutes. The hotels, shops and restaurants on Nosara’s “main drag” are all walkable, too, or just a short drive away.



· The home itself is pristine and generously appointed, perfectly accommodating my husband, myself and our two kids with room to spare (two full baths…bonus!). The lush gardens are gorgeous and beautifully maintained (we enjoyed seeing the monkeys in the trees each afternoon). We loved the generous and shaded wrap-around porch and the Pura Vida pool – our kids spent hours swimming even after the beach! The well-equipped kitchen and laundry makes it easy to eat meals in and take clean clothes home with you.



Like our annual Christmas trip to Nosara, staying at Casa La Playa is sure to become one of our family traditions. Thanks to Mario and Roslyn for sharing their beautiful home with us!



Pura Vida,

PERFECT

  • 5 of 5
Way better than a hotel.

Myself, wife and 17 year old daughter stayed in June 2009 for 9 nights at Casa La Playa. We all had a great time.

The house is very beautiful and comfortable. Perfect for vacation relaxing. Napping/lounging/reading/pool floating will get your battery recharged. The house is well maintained, the A/C's work as they should and the ceiling fans move a lot of air. My daughter took over the stereo and plugged her Ipod in first thing.

New experience butterflies quickly evaporated when we arrived in Nosara. The management staff (thanks Melissa!) was super friendly and took great care of us during our stay. Very accomodating and helpful. Everything about our rental turned out to be easy and stress free - one less thing to worry about when trip planning.

Nosara is the perfect vacation spot to go without an agenda and Casa La Playa is the perfect place to stay (with or without an agenda).

Our trip was in the "rainy season". We had rain in the afternoon or evening maybe 4 times, but even those days were sunny in the mornings. Surf was there to be had every day - so much for rainy season....

Nosara is surprising in its number of excellent restaurants. Way more than that more famous and more crowded spot a little further north. Don' be afraid to try new restaurants in Nosara. We didn't find a bad one during our trip. Odds are in your favor.

Some tidbits for the first time to Nosara folks: The Frog Pad is a friendly internet cafe and long distance phone call provider. Cafe Paris also has an internet cafe and an awesome bakery. Try the "Pargo Entero" - whole fried snapper - at the Gilded Iguana. For breakfast or lunch it is tough to beat Rosie's. If you love Tico food like we do you will eat there many times during your stay. Bring home a loaf of the fresh baked bread (the sweet one if they have it) and some pastries from the Cafe Paris and toast some slices in the toaster oven at Casa La Playa. Yumm!! And put some of those designer deserts in the fridge for a midnight snack - you ARE on vacation!

A 5 minute walk will get you to the Guiones beach. 5 minutes in the other direction will get you to the Yoga Institute.

Howler monkeys usually move through the trees at Casa La Playa in the afternoons - they are fun to watch. Welcome to the jungle...

Thanks Mario!

I CAN'T WAIT TO GO BACK!

I can't wait to go back!
  • 5 of 5
I stayed at Casa La Playa in February '09. It was the perfect getaway as was the weather. The house was great with everything we could possibly need - full kitchen, dining area w/ large table, expansive living room and two beautiful bedrooms with private baths. Everything is done so tastefully; touches that show that the owners really care about their home. We ate in several times, but their are several good restaurants nearby, all reasonably priced. And the ice cream store - yum! The pool was large enough to really swim in, and the ocean is within walking distance through the neighborhood. What a beautiful beach w/ very warm water. I took several long walks along the waters
edge. You can also watch the surfers, swim or just lazily read a book.
Back at the house is the best veranda ever! One can be quite lazy there for hours. Of course there's a lot to do nearby too, such as taking a Zip line through the area - not scary at all once you do it, and oh the views!! Yes - I plan to return again ( and maybe again). I loved Nosara and I loved the house. Thank you.

Notes:
Welcome to Casa La Playa.....It's Paradise!! Several years ago, on our second trip to Costa Rica, we discovered Nosara. We came for a few days, stayed for two weeks, and bought this lot the day before we returned home. Originally designed with the ‘L’ on the opposite side of the house, we discovered that a family of howler monkeys used that edge of the property to make their way around, so we redesigned the house so they would continue to have unfettered access. We saved as many trees as we could, and added mango, orange, lemon, banana, and coconut. With its lush, indigenous landscaping, you get the ultimate in luxury and privacy, yet you’re only a four-minute walk to the famous Playa Guiones beach for swimming, sunbathing, snorkeling, and surfing. With 24-hour security, the house is fully air-conditioned with ceiling fans both inside and out.
