Overview

Nosara House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4)

If view matters, this is IT! So close to 2 beaches (Playas Pelada and Nosara - both just a couple minutes stroll down the hill) that the ocean sounds will constantly surround and soothe you. This home and area is tranquil and unique because it is within the wildlife refuge yet very close to restaurants and all Nosara has to offer. The attached guest house sits at the end of Playa Pelada, 30 meters above the river mouth looking down the black sand beach of Playa Nosara at the Ostional turtle sanctuary. The view is of the beach and also of the most amazing estuary where two rivers (Montana and Nosara) come together and flow into the Pacific. The view then continues up into the mountains. There is no better view anywhere with the constant changing of the estuary, waves rolling in, fablous bird watching and the abundant wildlife. This is a rare home inside the wildlife refuge. The 1st floor attached guest home is 1000 sq feet with 1 bedroom with queen bed and 2 full baths plus additional outside shower, large covered deck and a double futon in the living area. Ideal for couple but will accomodate 4. Nicely decorated, air conditioned, private and secure. You will not want to leave. The pool (shared with us if we are there) has a fantastic infinity edge showcasing the view, a spa bench with jets and a beach area to lounge in!

The Beaches of Nosara is a tranquil gem on a series of gorgeous beaches on the Pacific side of Costa Rica. Nosara is one place in Costa Rica where the development has been controlled, preserving the natural flora and fauna. Yet the availability of great dining and the attraction of the world-class surfing at Playa Guiones and deep sea fishing can not be denied. Not to mention this is just one laid-back and cool place to be! Nosara made the New York Times list of the 45 places to visit in 2012! New in Nosara is the longest zip line canopy tour, pure excitement! Take a river tour to see the birds and wildlife with our friends at Nosara Boat Tours or a tranquil horse ride through jungle and beach with our friends at Boca Nosara tours, a 3 minute walk from the home. Dine at wonderful Italian, French, restaurants and the local Costa Rican and seafood restaurants. Walk 5 minutes to Playa Pelada, one of the most beautiful white sand beaches in the world. Here you can buy the fresh catch of the day, sip a refreshment and watch the fabulous sunset.

You won't get a better ocean view at ANY rental in Costa Rica!

You won’t get a better ocean view at ANY rental in Costa Rica! Which is one of the reasons why we keep coming back to this wonderful apartment. Our most recent trip to Nosara was in November, only this time my husband and I brought my brother, because we knew he just had to experience Costa Rica. He had seen photos of this rental and its incredible views, but nothing was better than seeing the look on his face when we arrived! He couldn’t believe the gorgeous ocean view and how great the apartment was. It has everything you need….washer/dryer, fully stocked kitchen, WiFi, air conditioning in the living room and bedroom (we preferred open windows and ceiling fans) a TV (we never used it once!). It is private, tranquil, and secure….you can hang out by the infiniti pool and watch the ocean roll in, or relax on the private covered patio in the hammock and check out the wildlife that inhabits the jungle. This rental is so close to so much…..beaches, restaurants, shopping, not to mention all of the activies and wildlife viewing that Nosara has to offer. Carl and Cathy are the perfect hosts, full of information on what to do and how to get to anywhere you’d like. This has been our go-to getaway time and time again, and we most certainly will be back! PS, make sure you have a 4 wheel drive vehicle, and pack light, you need less than you think!

My wife and I visited from Sept 20-27, 2014 and had a great time! We continuously enjoyed the beautiful views from the porch, pool and from inside the house. Carl's directions made getting there very easy and the local map provided made travel in Nosara simple and fun. We took walks to the river, saw monkeys (some with little babies), many birds, and animals. The store was easy to get to for supplies and the people were very friendly. The house was perfect and whether you want to take long hikes or sit by the pool this is the place! We felt very safe and secure and the privacy of being on a dead end road was great. We would highly recommend this beautiful oasis to anyone visiting Costa Rica as this house is simply perfect!

Exceptional Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Best spot in Nosara. After spending the day all over town: 4-wheeling up the mountain side to see amazing views, kayaking in the mangroves, surfing and eating at Guinoes, coming "home" was a special treat. The pictures here, though beautiful, only provide a tiny sample of the magnificence therein.The views are breathtaking and awesome, giving sight to the ocean, two rivers, and the mountains beyond. Just an amazing spot, and the home itself is absolutely beatuiful and all one could want in a vacation rental, complete with infinity pool from which to watch the sunsets.
Carl and Cathy were more than hosts, they became friends while we were living beneath them. They were there as much or as little as we wanted them to be, they answered all of our questions, helped us schedule our excursions, just perfect and companionable hosts. We couldn't have hoped for better, which became our mantra while in Nosara. Every day, every sight, every adventure exceeded our expectations.
Must haves: a car or quad to get around the winding dirt roads of Nosara (it's about a 10 minute drive to surf at Guinoes beach, or a short walk through the jungle path to Playa Pelada), a sense of adventure- this is not your cushy resort town, and an open heart because the people of Costa Rica will surely invade it.
Must nots: don't overpack! All you need are bathing suits, simple sundresses, shorts and tank tops (even when going out to eat), and a pair of crocs or flip-flops, preferrably crocs due to the rocky, dusty roads and wet environment. That's it, period. No hair dryer, no makeup, no jewelry....pura vida.
Best vacation ever. Hands down. Loved the location, loved the people, loved the views, loved the surf, loved the food; there's as much or as little to do as you want. We will definitely go back asap and will even try a yoga class next time!

Private, tranquil rental with an un-beatable ocean view

  • 5 of 5
As I sat down to write my review of this wonderful rental, I first read the other reviews that are posted here…..and I highly recommend that you do the same, as the former guests have done a great job of accurately describing this spacious, private, tranquil apartment. Reading these reviews took me right back there again! We have stayed at other places prior to this visit, but for ocean views and privacy, this place can’t be beat. You will not find a better ocean view at any other rental in Costa Rica. The pictures shown on this website are nice, but as you know, pictures never do the real thing justice! You’ve got to see this place with your own eyes.

Once we arrived, we never wanted to leave. There is nothing like soaking in the infinity pool overlooking the ocean or relaxing in the hammock on the covered patio, while listening to the wonderful sounds of the ocean and the wildlife that inhabits the jungle. You will most likely see a few of the “locals” (pezotis, birds, monkeys, even Samantha the house cat, who patrols the place). The location is perfect, as it has close proximity to beaches, fishing, surfing, hiking, zip lining, horseback riding, quad rentals, turtle watching, shopping, dining, and so much more! The amenities that this rental offers give you all the comforts of home while still making you feel like you are in another world. It is perfect for 2 to 4 guests, with 1 bedroom/a double futon in the living room/2 bathrooms/full kitchen/washer and dryer/air conditioning (which you probably won’t need since the breeze is perfect most of the time.) Towels and linens are provided, as is free Wi-Fi.

If you need ideas on what to do and how to get there, just ask your hosts…..Carl and Cathy are very knowledgeable and helpful, and their love for Costa Rica is quite evident! I should also mention that this place is in very close proximity to Playa Ostional, a gorgeous beach that is world famous for its mass arrivals of turtles nesting on the beach. We are planning to return to see one of the famous turtle arribadas, and we cannot wait to see this natural phenomenon with our own eyes. It goes without saying that we are also looking forward to renting from Carl and Cathy again! If it’s privacy and comfort with an ocean view that you want, then this is the place to be.

Beautiful views in a beautiful country.

  • 5 of 5
My husband and myself had the pleasure of staying for what seemed like the fastest week ever. Cathy and Carl are the perfect hosts. Very helpful with any questions you may have, while giving you your privacy. The home is very comfortable and well equiped and the views are stunning. Try Drifters Kayaks for a trip down the river and then finish you day with a great dinner at Rancho Ticos for dinner. Can't wait to come back !!!

spectacular views

  • 4 of 5
Arriving late in the after noon during fairly heavy rain was a bit challenging. The potholes in the road were often more prominent than the road itself. A four wheel drive vehicle is a must. We had great driving instructions emailed to us by the owner prior to our arrival. When we arrived we were greeted by the caretaker Alex, who was very cordial and helpful.
Although the kitchen was adequately stocked with basic seasonings and utensils, it could have been better stocked with utensils.
The view of the rivers and ocean are stunning from the property. With a lovely infinity pool there was no need to use the A/C. Many nice beaches are a short drive away and one beach a short walk away. Window screens were appreciated as there were mosquitoes and no seeums present near sunset time of day.

There was a helpful information sheet in the house along with helpful proprietors. Really a treat getting to stay at one of the best pacific ocean views in Costa Rica. Thank you Carl... pura vida
