PRIVATE BEACH HOUSE LOCATED AT THE CORNER OF PEACE AND QUIET

Nosara House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Casa de Memphis II is located at the little known north entrance to Playa Pelada where the Nosara River meets the Pacific Ocean. This private beach house is part of a collection of 8 private houses surrounded by the beach on one side and the ostional wildlife refuge on the other. There is only one road in or out and few people are aware that this section exist. This location is very private yet still very convenient to restaurants, grocery stores and everything else the community of Nosara has to offer.

The location is what makes this small community so special. With the ocean on one side, the Ostional wildlife area on the other and the Nosara River near by the area is a Mecca for wildlife. Because of the peaceful coexistence between the home owners and the natural surroundings, the wildlife literally comes to the door of the house. If you are looking for private seclusion surrounded by peace and quiet this is it. That is until a flock of parrots land in the tree above and the neighborhood monkey troop join in, then it gets a little noisy, but they were there first.

The house is a one minute walk to the beach and is located around the corner from the original Casa de Memphis I. Constructed in the style of the surrounding community; this one story two bedroom house is set up for the traveling family. (There is a private one bedroom cabina with its own private bathroom, garden, hammock and outdoor furnature that is only accessed by a bridge over a stream. Both the house and the cabina are fully air conditioned, and has all of the amenities of home including, private pool, beach towels, satellite TV, wireless internet, fully equipped kitchen, pool chairs, telephone and more.

Because the house sits at the end of a road there is no through traffic, noise or the associated dust commonly found else where.

Security: Costa Ricans are by nature a very passive people. That said petty theft is an on going issue. Nothing neutralizes this issue more than common since. CdM I & II have monitored alarm systems and are patrolled at night from 6pm to 6am. No other house available for rent has this level of security.

Call if you have any questions or you can scroll down below, just before the photos for a link to the house's website.

The House is owned by David & Mary Caywood. David flies for FedEx and Mary is a retired advertising executive. They own two house's, known as CdM I & II. This is their favorivte of the two and they stay here three months of the year.

Dave Caywood purchased this house in 2010

We bought the original Casa de Memphis I in 2007 and naturally we got to know the area and many of the locals very well. One of them was our neighbor, Richard Moffat. Mary loved Richards’s house and so when he decided to move closer to his son in the central valley, we bought the house and it became known as Casa de Memphis II. The two houses are just around the corner from one another, only 75 yards apart.

We enjoy walking to everything. Because the roads are so convoluted most people use the beach to get around. After a while you learn the trails through the jungle and the result is that the community is not so fragmented.

Lovely property and incredible location

Our family enjoyed a lovely week in Nosara at Casa de Memphis II. We brought our kids ages 11 and 8 and they loved it. The location is amazing with the beach just a couple minutes walk. The howler monkeys woke us every morning and we enjoyed watching them swing through the trees with babies in tow.
The house is lovely with comfortable beds, a nice open concept and we all enjoyed the pool. We felt safe at all times whether in the house or walking the beach at night. We were careful to keep our valuables locked up and out of sight and kept the doors/gates locked. We did encounter a couple or maintenance issues when we first arrived but Tiffany was great and had things fixed right away. Some of the little things like linens, towels and dishes could stand to be replaced but overall the house was clean and well maintained.
The beach was great for beach combing, tidal pools, swimming and boogie boarding although you have to be aware of potential rip tides. We enjoyed eating at Olga's and La Luna which were both a quick walk along the beach. We were lucky enough to see some baby turtles making their way from nest to water right at Playa Peleda. We also walked to Playa Guiones for surfing and enjoyed the little shops and restaurants there.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and recommend it to families who want to see monkeys and be close to a quiet, swimming beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Believe it or not your balanced perspective helps me manage the house better than most of the five star reviews. As a result of your comments my wife and I went down to Nosara last week and went through all of the linens. We could not understand why it was that every time we go down there and take new linens, someone would say they needed replacing. Here is what we found out.

The ladies that clean the house are of course local and have been working for me for years. Their perspective on things is different than ours. If a sheet has a stain or a slight tear but would still fit on the bed, all standards met! In fact the first night I was down there my own pillow had both a paint stain and a tear!! All of this was happening while the closet was filled to the brim with brand new replacement sheets and towels that had never been used.

Needless to say we have tried to convey the difference in standards between their’s and the reasonable expectations of guest who invest both their time and money for an experience of a lifetime. Hopefully this issue is behind us, but remember that the first step in solving any problem is being aware of it in the first place and for that we are very thankful.

Great Location, Good Pool and Well Equipped House

We (grandparents, parents and two kids) stayed at Casa de Memphis II the week after Christmas. The house location is great. It is less than 2 minute walk to the beach passing through the required (by law) conserved vegetation zone. A morning walk south takes you down the beach, Playa Pelada, to connect to the next, even longer, beach, Playa Guiones. Both are beautiful beaches and, even at this time of the year, relatively unpopulated. A huge huge plus for the kids was the nice sized pool at the house. After hours on the beach they spent more hours in the pool. The house is well -equipped for cooking but only a short drive to nearby restaurants if you don’t want to cook. You can also reach restaurants walking down the beach. We did both. The internet worked without a hitch. The house is supplied with TV, books and games for the indoor time. The house manager, Tiffany, is very nice and was always accessible for questions. She can help you plan activities. Dave, the owner, provides lots of good information on the house and maps of the area before you go. If you stay here, introduce yourself to the next door neighbors who live there most of the year. They are also a fount of information about Nosara. Although there are some small grocery stores nearby, if you are going to cook at home I would stock up on groceries at one of the supermercados on the way from the airport. And a pleasant surprise was (at least during this time of the year) the drive on the gravel road to Nosara . It was slow as expected but not bad at all. We had a very good time at Casa de Memphis II.

Our February 2013 vacation in Nosara

After an excruciating day of travel from PA to Nosara we were greeted by Tiffany's smiling face welcoming us to Casa Memphis II. We were very impressed with the house, the pool, all the amenities. This was our 7th trip to Costa Rica, first to Nosara. It is a very nice area with lovely homes surrounding the Casa. The roads are a bit rough but we got used to them & found our way around slowly but surely.
The house has absolutely everything you could possibly need from kitchen necessities to towels & beach chairs, pool chairs, outdoor dining table, cable flat screen TV. The beach is spectacular for walking, which we did every morning, & for watching the sunsets every evening.
We would highly recommend this house to anyone looking for a relaxing get away to a beautiful area of Costa Rica.

Amazing property

Casa de Memphis II exceeded our expectations. (David, the owner is great to work with) We loved having the private pool and spent hours lounging, reading and having breakfast and lunch on the veranda. We had everything we needed in the kitchen and having the laundry allowed us to pack less. There were two of us but the accommodations could have slept nine. We met wonderful neighbors and visited many local restaurants. Tiffany, the manager is a short call away if you have any questions and she is right on top of everything. The beach is a very short walk(couple minutes) from the house and a great place to watch the sunset. We saw the "green flash" twice during our stay in November. ( I have been looking for that for 20 some years) It was the experience of a lifetime. You must go!! We hiked through the Lagarto reserve (beautiful), rode horses on the beach (Boca Nosara) and ziplined with "Miss Sky" definitely recommend them all. As in any travels, follow the suggestions and take care of your valuables.

This house set the backdrop for one of the greatest trips we've taken to date. Banana and lime trees frame a backyard in which we counted no fewer than 11 types of trees. It has all of the modern amenities one would need, but surely will not want to use when on vacation: digital cable, Wi-Fi, A/C. Two neighborly dogs escorted us through 25 yards of wooded trails directly to the beach, where you'll find...absolutely nothing, and you couldn't ask for anything else. No beachfront development. No condos or high-rises. No Senor Frog's. Simply pristine coastline carved up by geological history where you can walk out at low tide and come back with a readily available lunch of sea snails, crabs, and urchins all waiting in tidal pools for the taking. The home is beautiful. Playa Pelada is beautiful. And the experience would be hard to parallel anywhere else on this planet.

Additional information about rental rates

Notes CdM II has remote metering equipment so as to determine how much or how little electricity individual parties use. Because of this we have not had to raise the rate since 2008. We find it to be a much fairer way to control cost. You can actually monitor your usage online during your stay. This is a great way to teach future generations about conservation.

Cancellation Policy

100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
