Welcome to Hawaii as it was in 1940, but with high speed 'premium' DSL WiFi. You are only 2 hours from the Liberia airport, and you can use a rental car, which you can pick up at the airport and drop in Nosara or we can send a van. This is a rustic surf town with dirt roads, friendly people, and lots of yoga and surfing going on. Your cottage is a 10 minute walk from the main surf beach, a five minute walk to the Yoga Institute, a ten minute walk to the Spanish Language Institute, and a two minute walk to downtown. For an option, there are two bikes for you if you'd like to peddle around. One bike has a surfboard rack. You also use our two 9 food soft-top surfboards. You are so close to downtown that, within a couple minutes walk, there is an ice cream shop, a mini-mart, a clinic, clothing stores, real estate offices, a bank, a lot of cafes and restaurants, and two surf shops. In the cottage, you have wireless high speed DSL internet, 24 hour on-call maintenence, local guides/maps, weekly housekeeping (daily housekeeping is optional), air conditioning (rarely needed and is optional), beach towels, ceiling fans, house linens are provided, a safe (will hold wallets, passports, 3 laptops), a TV connected to a DVD player for movies and music, security (ornate ironwork on doors and windows), a blender, a coffeemaker, a pressure cooker, a microwave, a refrigerator, a stove, a toaster, a rice cooker, optional personal laundry at $10 per load, a covered porch with two hammocks, off-road parking, outside shower, a large patio, patio furniture, and a beautiful yard. You are located above one of Nosara's many nature preserves and you will see a lot of wildlife. During the day the howler and spider monkeys play in the trees, pizotes wander through the yard (they love peanut butter), and tropical birds and butterflies fill the air around you. We walk to the beach twice a day to surf, and usually are not disappointed by what we find. Dawn and sunset surfing are the best if tides and winds are right. The locals are outstanding surfers, but they make room for visitors. In fact, we really can't say enough about the friendly, hospitable people of Nosara. They especially warm up to us when we try our most unexcellent Spanish on them. This is not just a rental house for income - we live here part of the year ourselves, and we have fixed it up to be cozy and complete. We don't scrimp on any of the amenities, because we like to fix things up nicely for ourselves as well. We bought this cottage after Jason had come to Nosara for years to surf and enjoy the food, scenery, monkeys, and local population. With the purchase of the cottage, we inherited a wonderful wife/husband team of managers, who are on the spot when anything needs attending to. They manage the gardens, the housekeeping, the laundry, the renter's needs, and renter scheduling.
