Casa Vista Hermosa is a perfect vacation rental for anyone who appreciates a higher end luxury home with incredible views and an overall spaciousness. Situated in the Las Huacas area, both surf and yoga are only a couple minutes away in Guiones!
Vista Hermosa provides mountain and valley views as well as smaller ocean & surf break views to the north. Imagine relaxing in the infinity edge pool, lounge chairs or hammocks overlooking the jungle canopy as monkeys hop from tree to tree, birds cruise through the valley, and clouds morph into an ever changing stunning picture show often providing rainbows.
Beautifully furnished and decorated, Vista Hermosa is not your 'average' vacation rental. It is a haven of peace and privacy surrounded on three sides by a wildlife refuge. Offering 2 bedrooms en suite, this home provides an open floor plan, high ceilings and a gourmet kitchen with granite counter tops ideal for entertaining and the chefs in the group. The kitchen and living areas open up to the outside patio and swim up pool. There is actually a bar linking the kitchen and patio for delivering fresh food and drinks to everyone outside. Gas BBQ grill on the outdoor patio. And, there is a powder room accessible from the patio as well as from inside.
The Master bedroom is up a small staircase providing the best ocean views to the north. It offers a king-size bed with a private spacious bathroom that includes double vanities, a bidet and a large shower. Large sliding doors open to a balcony overlooking the jungle and valley below. The second bedroom on the main floor has 2 twin beds that can be made up as a king, a private bath and a patio door that opens to the pool area. The main living room is spacious and open offering comfortable seating and a flat screen TV. Dine al fresco on a large table for gourmet meals, playing cards, various games or just enjoy the cool breezes. There is high-speed wireless internet throughout the house.
The positioning of this house is such that you enjoy magnificent sunrises coming over the mountains and cooler temperatures throughout the afternoon. Air conditioning is available at $100/week but rarely needed or requested. Vista Hermosa is a smoke-free environment.

About Cathy Garfinkle
Our year round residence is on Martha’s Vineyard, a small island off the coast of Massachusetts. Our life on the island revolves around nature and the community. Not surprisingly we find a similar connection in Nosara with the added joys of abundant tropical sunshine, tropical fruits and organic vegetables. We both teach yoga and love the many yoga options in Guiones, the relaxed beachfront section of Nosara. The natural beauty of Costa Rica and the close proximity to the wildlife here is astounding!
Cathy Garfinkle purchased this house in 2011
Why Cathy Garfinkle chose Nosara
We made our first trip to Nosara several years ago and instantly fell in love with its beauty and the relaxed pace. The community is friendly, eclectic and inviting, and the locals mix seamlessly with the ex-pats. The Costa Rican culture is nurturing, peaceful and family oriented. Our family surfs and does yoga – a natural fit with world-class surfing and ample yoga options just minutes away.
What makes this house unique
Our plans were to rent a few more years before we bought a house in Nosara. However, once we looked at Vista Hermosa, we took the leap sooner. We were so impressed with the high quality of workmanship combined with a private setting, we were sold. We are located in the exclusive Las Huacas section of Nosara with private security and quick access to Playa Guiones (5 minutes). Our house is situated on the valley side with fantastic views of the mountain and ocean, and pleasant breezes to offset the tropical heat. We are surrounded on three sides by a nature preserve offering unparalleled privacy and quiet. The house is set along a monkey trail -- imagine relaxing by the pool and watching the monkeys hop from tree to tree!
Guestbook comments from the manager
Made our 3rd annual trip to Nosara in mid-March. Have stayed in 3 different homes and this was by far, the best one yet! All had good aspects but this home is extremely well-cared for, well-equipped and well-appointed. We are veteran home renters and it's noticed when a home has everything it needs and doesn't feel like a rental. Pots & pans match, the dishes are an actual set, not castoffs, and so forth. Master bed & bath were very comfortable. I loved the walk in shower. Kitchen is gorgeous and the outside area is very comfortable and private. Pool area has hammock, adirondack chairs and two loungers that can moved for sun or shade. The cleaning person came twice during our two week stay, she was very unobtrusive and does a great job. Gardener and pool service also come on a regular basis and again, unobtrusive. Agnes and Jo from Mango Property Mgmt. checked on us a couple of times; we're pretty self-sufficient so had no concerns but they answered a few questions for us about the area, etc. View from the home over the valley is fantasic. You don't get a direct sunset but the clouds turn gorgeous shades of red & orange. Full moon while we were there and that was gorgeous as well. A little bit of monkey activity and several pisote sightings. House is very secure, with a remote controlled gate, home alarm system, iron gates and bars on sliding doors. Initially it was a bit of a production to lock & unlock but I appreciate the security. Only challenge we had was with the new apple TV the owners just set up. Internet speed wasn't quick enough to download a movie but I think there may be a setting to correct. We really didn't need to watch TV anyway - nicer to sit outside and enjoy the breeze. All in all, a perfect property and we would love to stay there again!
