Overview

Playa Guiones House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-7)

This two bedroom, two bath cottage is a short walk from the beach. Beach front homes are forbidden by law to keep the natural area intact. You may walk to the beach through the jungle with pesoti, land crabs, monkeys and other wild life or you might bypass the jungle and go on to the beach. The house is air conditioned for those who prefer, but there are also screens on all the windows and front door for those wanting fresh air. There are ceiling fans throughout and floor fans are available upon request.

The kitchen is stocked for cooking family meals; however, with the best laid plans of most who stay here, the restaurants are so many, convenient and good that most people throw away more food than they cook. Enjoy a nice day at the beach, whether sun bathing, swimming, surfing, snorkeling, fishing, walking or just reading a book. Then head to La Dolce Vita for fine Italian, Marlin Bills for freshly caught fish, Harbor Reef for a burger & fries, Giardino Tropical for pizza, Robins for a healthy sandwich and home made ice cream & cookies, Freddie's for local cuisine or any of the other fine eateries.

Some days you may spend the whole day by the pool just reading or napping and others you may go on one of the great guided quad rides. The next day you might spend half the day on a zip line through the rolling hills or horse back-riding. Canoe trips are great fun and a night trip to the turtle beach can be most rewarding.

There are shops for buying local craft. The local woodcraft and pottery is excellent.

Hopefully you packed light! There is a laundry room off the back bedroom with a washer & dryer to keep those beach clothes feeling fresh. Indoor surf board storage is provided so the boards can be kept inside, but not in the way.

If you just have to keep in touch, there is free secure WiFi in the house and on the front porch. There is a phone for local calls. (Local calls in Costa Rica are anywhere in the country).

Or, just maybe you came to attend the International Yoga Institute.

Come, relax, enjoy!

About The Owner

We went to Costa Rica in 2003 looking for a place to consider. We were in country for 72 hours when we found this house, then under construction, and bought it on the spot. It is the place we go when we want to be with new friends, take old friends to enjoy time together or just to have quiet time alone. If you enjoy doing the things listed in the write-up in a place where there are no train whistles, police sirens, factories spewing smoke and ash, cars doing 90 miles an hour (most speed limits are 55 or less, heed them and keep your money); then this may be the place for you.

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose Playa Guiones

When you are in Nosara, be sure to wear your smile. Most everyone will say 'Buenos Dias', or some other greeting of the day. Don't be surprised if you are walking and a farmer in his truck or on a horse offers you a ride. We have had both happen. This is a great community with wonderful people.

What makes this house unique

One of my favorite things to do is to get up early and walk the beach for an hour or more before the sun comes up over the hill to the east. It just gets me in the mood for a relaxed day.

We rented this home for a month in Nosara/Playa Guiones. Through sheer luck we believe this was the best deal possible. On the flat so you can ride bikes around (instead of way up on a hillside like the vast majority of homes). Within walking of the village, restaurants, a five minute walk to the beach. The housekeeper and gardener couple are fantastic and will help you with anything you need. Remember it is the tropics and in Mar/Apr was darned hot and dusty. But it is what it is. Also remember critters and creepy crawlies abound. It's where the jungle meets the ocean. The owner is extremely helpful, fair and honest. Rave reviews.

Relaxation at its best

  • 4 of 5
My husband and I, along with my best friend and her husband rented the home for one week. The property and homes are beautifully reflected in the pictures provided. The home had everything we needed to be quite comfortable for our week long stay. The rooms are spacious, modern and very well maintained. The swimming pool was a wonderful bonus. There were a few minor glitches, the wifi modem was burned out thus preventing any internet connection and the house phone stopped working our 3rd day there. There's construction in the area for the expansion of the very beautiful Yoga Institute and this may have been the cause of the service interruption. The stove runs on gas and the tank was empty as was the back up tank. (Our catch of the day had to be put on hold). Fortunately the phones were still operable the 2nd night we were there and the property manager came out and replaced the tank. Overall, we still managed to have a wonderful time. I'd certainly recommend this property assuming all things are in order.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We do apologize for the inconveniences and are looking into all of them. I know the modem has been replaced. The issue with the phones was a line outage which has since been corrected. The gas issue was just any inexcusable mistake and we sincerely apologize for the problem.
It is certainly nice to know that overall your stay was enjoyable. Please do come again.

Great Location and Very Comfortable Home

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I and our 14 month old daughter just spent January 2013 here in Nosara. It was an amazing month full of warm, sunny days, great waves, delicious food, and all the yoga you could ever want! The home was very comfortable and easily accommodated our guests throughout our time here. The kitchen was pretty well stocked and we were able to cook at the house quite a bit (easier than going out to eat with a toddler). But there are so many great restaurants here (La Luna, Beach Dog Cafe (right down the road - a 2 minute walk), The Gilded Iguana, Rosie's for lunch, Robin's Ice Cream) - you will not go hungry down here that's for sure. Anyway, the pool was nice but we didn't end up using it much because it doesn't get a lot of sunshine. Silvia and Bobbi were extremely accommodating and we really couldn't have asked for anything more.

Best in Nosara

  • 5 of 5
Loved this place, it was our home away from home. We were 2 couples but would be suitable for a family too. The kitchen was fully stocked, we cooked dinner for 2 weeks. It was quiet and clean and felt safe. The fridge was amazing with its water filter and ice maker. We missed that when we left to another town.
It was a close walk to the beach. I would say it was one of the best locations to be at in Nosara.

Owner's Response: Michelle & Tersa. It was kind of you to take the time to provide a review. We are so glad you were pleased with everything and the new refrigerator. You are the first to comment on that the old one was adequate; however, since I enjoy cooking I wanted a better fridge.Thanks again and we are glad you enjoyed your stay.

A month in Paradise

  • 5 of 5
Casa Reef was exactly as advertised. We loved it & would definitely recommend it to family & friends. The owner & agent were responsive to our every need. The staff were friendly and efficient. We ate in as well as frequented the excellent local restaurants. The facilities served all our needs. We were able to walk to almost everything (we're 70 & 68 yrs. old). Nosara is laid back & quiet, but offers everything us Gringos need. We will try to return as soon as possible.

Owner's Response: Paul & Delores, Thanks for the kind words.
Paul when you were at the house you mentioned the drain chain clinking against the roof. That has been repaired.
Next time you won't even have to wash dishes. We had a dishwasher installed just right of the sink where we also added a garbage disposal.
Be well and we do hope you can come again soon.
