Nosara Villa Rental Photos and Description

Great Ocean View; giant pool;7 Bdr/5.5 bath (up to 24 people)

Paradise View Villa is located at the very top of the area call Las Huacas, 600 ft above sea level. It is a multi-complex home, with a total of 7 bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms (this includes two ½ baths outside by the pool) in the 3 buildings. It is located in the prestigious section EE, behind Guiones Beach on a dead end road. There is only one way in and one way out of this beautiful hill. The land was purchased in 2002 and construction was completed in 2005. (check out the satellite map below).

This villa location is spectacular for Weddings, Yoga or Art Retreats, Family Reunions, Corporate Retreats, and much more. Even small families enjoy the privacy and view atop the hill. Private catering, maid services, and babysitting are available for a separate fee, depending on the number of days, types of food, and number of people in the party. Catering services are available for up to 80 people. More people can be served, but rental of outside tables and chairs would be necessary.

The main house is designed to enjoy the outdoors, with arched doors that open up the whole house. The view of the Pacific Ocean can be enjoyed from 4 of the 7 bedrooms. There are 3 bedrooms and a loft. The three bedrooms in the main house have king size beds and the loft has 2 double beds. There are a total of 3 sleeper sofas in the kitchen/living area. The master bedroom and one other bedroom each have cable tv. The 3 bedrooms have ac, but the loft does not. There are two available pack-n-plays for small children. The kitchen/living is split level, with enormous living spaces with 30 ft ceilings. All doors of the main house are on the same side of the house. The arched doors of the main house open up from the master bedroom, kitchen, living room, and one extra bedroom onto an enormous covered patio. Almost all the wood in the houses are made of various exotic woods, with the exception of a few antique pieces located throughout the main house.

In front of the covered patio is a 35,000 gallon pool and a baby pool off to the side of the house.

A large bar with bar stools where you can enjoy your tropical drinks or enjoy a quiet and serene meal. The gardens are magnificently groomed 5 days a week, with beautiful pathways throughout to enjoy the local flora and fauna. A large refrigerator is located in the bar and may be used at an additional charge of $15/day.

Located outdoors are his & hers ½ baths by the pool with showers behind them for rinsing off after the beach. The pool is not considered a bathtub!

The large cabina with the 2 connecting rooms, also has exquisite views of the ocean. Each has a queen size bed and double sleeper sofa. Each has a private bath with waterfall showers.

The small cabina is nestled in the beautiful gardens with a double bed and private bath. Each of these 3 rooms has ac and fans.

The kitchen is a beautiful gourmet kitchen with many wonderful amenities. It has a GE profile gas stove, garbage disposal, and microwave, blender, coffee maker plenty of dishes, glasses, silverware and cookware. If you require something special, please ask, because we probably have it in storage. If you choose not to spend your vacation cooking, we can arrange for you to have a private French trained chef (the owner) for one or for all of your meals.

Rosemarie's Villa also has customized Adventure packages, including: Fishing, Sunset tours with wine or champagne and gourmet appetizers, Boat trips for surfing to other beaches, either south or north of Nosara, kayaking, paddle boarding, atv’s, etc.

AC is not usually needed, and Costa Rica is a very environmentally conscience country, so it is requested that all ac's, fans and lights are turned off when one is NOT in that room. There is no ac in the living room/kitchen area. Bedroom ac's are not to be used to cool living room areas!

Almost all the furniture was custom made here on the property by the owner’s family. There is Teak, Guanacaste, Pochote, Melina, and Iron Wood. The floors are all tile, with the exception of the loft, which has Teak. The ceilings in the main house have Melina and in the large cabina there is Teak.

A car is not a necessity, but is definitely recommended. It is a 5 minute drive to the beaches and to the main restaurants and shopping. The driveway is gated. There is an inside walk in bodega (safe room) where all your personal possessions can be placed for security. The gardener will be on site 5 days a week (sometimes 6-7), and if you wish to have security or have the owner stay on site when you go out at night, this can be arranged. Everything with Southern Hospitality is offered to make your vacation the most memorable you can have!

Just remember, this IS the jungle, and there are many types of wildlife and insects. They were here before we were. We spray with organic sprays only, but sometimes there is a need for more but we do not use harmful chemicals.

Keywords: Large House / Villa with multiple buildings. The main house has has 4 bedrooms. The three main rooms have king beds and the loft has 2 double beds. There are 3 sleeper sofas in the main house. The 2 large cabinas each have a queen bed and double sleeper sofa. The small cabina has a double bed.

I am a Texan and a French trained chef. I love all types of cooking. I have many animals, including dogs, cats, birds, and more. I love the tropics, and therefore decided to move one day out of the blue. I have a 15 year old daughter and a grown son. My son is the proud father of a beautiful little boy. My mother lives here in Costa Rica with my family and I. We love the quality of life that Nosara offers and therefore are here for life. My children are both bilingual, which helps in everyday life here.

Debra Bishop purchased this villa in 2003

I bought this property in 2002 and built this from ground up. I love Nosara's remoteness, but it still has a feel of civilization. I decided one day to come to Nosara and on my 4th day here, I bought this property.

Paradise View Villa offers you a quiet and relaxing vacation. It is only 5 minutes driving distance to the two main beaches of Nosara, shops and main restaurants and only 10 minutes from the Nosara Airport.

Great vacation

We rented Paradise View Villa or Vista Del Paraiso for two weeks and it was a wonderful vacation. We had a large group (12-20 over the two weeks) and hired Debbie on two occasions to cater a dinner. Both meals were delicious. Debbie and Roxanne are very accommodating and helpful. They gave us our privacy but were always there when we needed something. I would definitely return. The house is perfect for large families or groups. There are three spacious bedrooms in the house and three cabinas. Everyone had their own space and we never felt on top of one another. It was a great vacation!

Destination Wedding (Southern Style)

We just had our destination wedding at Vista del Paraiso. We managed to get 61 people to come to the wedding so we needed a property that could handle that many. There are only a handful of properties in the Nosara area that could handle this number some of which would have charged an arm and a leg. After much research we came across Vista del Paraiso (aka Paradise View Villa) after a few emails with the owner (Ms. Debbie) we were hooked. She was always very helpful and willing to take the time and answer all our questions. Trust me, we had a lot of questions when planning a 61 person destination wedding.

We rented the house for 1 week and had the wedding on the property at the end of the week. The house is in great shape all the rooms were as expected. All AC units worked just fine, the view from the patio was spectacular, the pool was large and always clean, and the gardens were always in great shape. The owner of the house stocked the outside pool frig with beer and cooked us a great welcome meal when we got there the first night. She got us a great deal on the beer and cooked us more than enough food to last the next few days.

If you are looking for a great venue for a wedding this place has it all. The property was huge, the view was incredible, and there was plenty of space for all our guests to spread out. We hired Ms. Debbie to be our caterer for the wedding. It worked out nicely since she is a chef by trade and was able to cook on the property, which made things way easier in the food department. Looking back on the wedding day my wife and I could only say how low stress and perfect everything fell into place. Much thanks to Heather the wedding planner (at nosara weddings events) and Ms. Debbie without them none of this would have been possible.

Can we say vow renewals in 10 years???

Owner's Response: I have to say, working with ya'll (welcome to the South), was so wonderful and every person and every part of your wedding and your week constantly brought tears to my eyes! I couldn't ask for a better group of people. Clients like you, Bo and Candice, make my job worth while! Nothing like Southern Hospitality! Thank you all for being so easy going and absolutely so much fun! Even my employees are still talking about how much fun you all are! If I am around, God willing, in 10 years, I would more than love to do your anniversary! I would even go anywhere else and cook for you or with another chef! This is the beginning of a long friendship! Thanks again!

We spent 6 days in Vista del Paraiso during a Family Trip to Costa Rica and as well had our wedding celebration in the same place, catered by Debbie. The overall experience was amazing, the place is truly superb and it is perfect location to spend with family and friends. Debbie was extremely caring since the 1st contact, always willing to help, propose things and promptly following up. The food service we hired from her was excellent, and definitely worth it. I would definitely recommend this place and Debbie's services to anyone who wants a great Costa Rican retreat experience.

I just got the time to write about my wedding experience at paradise view villas . I have been extremely busy since we have returned but I just had to tell other potential brides of what a perfect location this is for weddings . My photos were absolutely beautiful ! I had 15 people in our party . Debbie the owner was more than accommodating to our needs. We hired her for all of the food for the ceremony and all of the pre-ceremony dinners , the food was amazing . We had a few authentic Costa Rican meals that were delicious and by the request of the kids they had her famous fried chicken which after tasting we requested it on our last night there . The accommodations were perfect and the balcony view is priceless . The sounds of the jungle lulled us to sleep each night . Debbie also hooked us up with surfboard rentals and one day she and her husband Daniel took us on a quad tour to the most beautiful black sand beaches that I have ever seen ! Everything was perfect for a destination wedding , we plan on coming back every year for our anniversary .

Rented this property for a corporate getaway during Semana Santa this year. Stayed Wednesday through Sunday. Not only does the place have the best view in Nosara but it's extremely roomy, well decorated and absolutely comfortable in every way. Listing description is very accurate. The pictures don't do it justice - especially the view - which never got old. The property is well maintained, the gardens groomed and safely off the beaten path. All of the rooms are spread out nicely (there were 14 of us) so everyone had plenty of privacy. Lots of little areas to sit, talk and drink.

We cooked a few of our own meals. However the real treat was having Debra (the property owner) cook several meals including a couple of breakfasts, a couple of dinners and Sunday brunch. Quiche was incredible! Banana/chocolate pancakes were a big hit with my kids. All were excellent but the bunch was awesome - leftovers came home with us to San Jose! You can eat out by the bar with the view or there is an incredibly huge covered area right outside the doors of the main house. In case of rain "you're covered".

The bar area was excellent for a group our size but even at double our size would have been awesome. Includes a nice double-door refrigerator and over-head glass racks for the bar. Lots of lighting everywhere, statues and his/her pool bathrooms that serve for the bar as well make this area an awesome party place where we lived during our stay.

I live here in Costa Rica and I'm very familiar with vacation rentals in general - this is a good one. You won't be disappointed! Feel free to contact me with questions. I'm happy to recommend Debra and this property.

Nosara offers many activities such as world class fishing and surfing, eco tourism (the turtles, whale and dolphin watching, pilates and yoga, a bird sanctuary with walking path, shopping and much more. We highly recommend the fishing charters or a sunset tour with Chino's Fishing Adventures, which includes wine or champagne and gourmet appetizers. Also, the kayak tours with Jungle Joe and Iguana Adventures!

Paradise View Villa has its own Charter Fishing Vacations and also runs daily charters. Charter Fishing is provided by Captain Daniel 'Chino' Juarez. He has a 28' charter boat with dual 75 hp Yamaha engines. When the all-inclusive package for 20 people is purchased at the time of reservations, then a free 1/2 charter is included.

Nosara is famous for its surfing, yoga and fishing, but they have so much to offer for everyone! Relax, exercise, eat, drink, dance...whatever you enjoy!
