Overview

Nosara House Rental Photos and Description

3 BD, 2.5 BA, Sleeps 6, 35' Salt Water Pool, Outdoor Shower, Meditation Area,

Dos Palmeras is a new, executive holiday three-bedroom home located in the peaceful and secluded EE Las Huacas region of Nosara.

Nestled in the hills above beautiful Guiones beach, Dos Palmeras is perfect for individuals looking for peace and quiet while remaining just a short drive from an assortment of popular restaurants, shops, and the beach itself (approx. 3km). With a large kitchen/living room area, three bedrooms, two and a half bathrooms, and a 35 foot infinity-edge pool, this home is ideal for families or groups of friends looking for a small piece of paradise in Costa Rica’s Guanacaste region.

The beautiful and spacious granite kitchen, kept cool by a large vaulted ceiling and fans, is fully equipped, complete with a gas range and a large refrigerator. With a unique open-concept design, the living room and master bedroom open fully to the terrace and pool beyond, giving one the sense of living outdoors. The home can also be completely secured with sliding doors and roll down motorized curtains for safety purposes. We also have multiple safes for your valuables.

The dining area on the terrace offers a breezy, sheltered eating experience with views out to the infinity pool and surrounding jungle. Wildlife is abundant, with howler monkeys passing by daily.

The bedrooms are all outfitted with king size beds but those in both guestrooms can be separated into two twin beds, depending upon your needs. A/C is available in all of the bedrooms, but with the gentle hilltop breezes and the house’s open design, you might just find that you don’t even need it. The house sleeps six. The guest wing is independently accessible from the terrace.

Other features include: wireless internet, TV with DVD player, safety bars or roll down curtains on all openings, safes, and an alarm system that is monitored by phone by a security service.

On August 4, 2014 the Ministry of Finance (Ministerio de Hacienda) requested that legislators approve a law regarding sales taxes that should be paid by people who rent homes to tourists as well as the owners of recreation centers throughout the country and that income from renting houses, condominiums or apartments to tourists should be subject to the sales tax (13%). In fairness to the country we will collect and submit the sales tax once it becomes law.

Enjoy your stay in beautiful Nosara. Pura Vida

About Philip

We are a Canadian couple, an accountant and a chiropractor from Toronto who designed and built this home for our retirement one day, in the not too distant future. We enjoy having our two sons join us for vacations.

Philip purchased this house in 2012

Why Philip chose Nosara

Nosara and the people here are amazing. Beautiful town to relax and unwind, you may want to surf or yoga if you are so inclined, otherwise just enjoy the peace and tranquility.

What makes this house unique

Our house, up in the hills above the beach receives cooling breezes and is peaceful and quiet but only a 5 minute drive to the main area for restaurants and shops. Neighbors are far enough away that you won't have to listen to their conversations and they to yours. You won't however escape the howler monkeys who will insist on being heard.

Guestbook comments from the owner

5 of 5 stars - Reviewed 26 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

(from another rental website)



Loved this house located in the EE section of Nosara. Very newly constructed so everything is clean and fresh and attractive, both inside and out. We are veteran home renters, having rented 4 properties now in Nosara, as well as renting homes in the Bahamas, and various locations in the us so I think that experience makes me more picky than other vacationers might be. This house is great - nice interior, great master bedroom & bath. Lovely sliding door access to the outside area. Pool was fantastic and views of the jungle made it feel very secluded. Loved the outside shower as well. It's adequately equipped, not every bell/whistle you might want but nothing missing except there is no grill. We bought a small charcoal one to use as that was a big miss for us. The one word of caution I have is in the design of the house - the two guest rooms are not accessible via an internal door in the house. They can only be entered thru doors by the pool area. This is very clear in the floor plan posted on the website but I didn't catch it so this was a surprise to me. Wasn't an issue as it was only my husband and I but if we had kids, especially younger ones, I think this might be a challenge when doors are locked up at night. Jo & Agnes from Mango Property Mgmt. do a wonderful job, ensuring you're settled in and familiar with how everything works; they're happy to help if you have any questions or issues. Cleaning people, pool person and gardener all wonderful - did a great job while being unobtrusive. We would rent this house again. Note, when rating "would you recommend this for the following", I did not select older travelers or people w/disabilities are there are several stairs from the parking area down to the house which may be an issue.



Comment by owner: the grill is still there and all you need is a bag of charcoal or some driftwood from the beach. Fish, chicken and steaks are fantastic slow cooked on the grill. In my opinion... much tastier than a gas BBQ. NOTE: for 2015 we have added a gas BBQ. Thanks for the suggestion.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in March/April 2015. I have little to add to the other comments other than to agree that the house is outstanding. The setting is lovely (secluded jungle), and the house itself is well maintained and modern. The pool guy came nearly every day, and cleaning staff weekly. We were there with two other families and all agreed that we had lucked out with the nicest house (particularly given the relative low cost).

The only drawbacks (in my view) are that the two guest bedrooms are not connected to the main house (a bit of a problem for us with two young kids) and the road up to the house was not in the greatest shape (though none of the roads in Nosara are in the greatest shape).

In conclusion, we will definitely look to rent Dos Palmeras first when we return to Nosara.

Owner's Response: The roads in Nosara are both a blessing and a curse. On the positive side it retains the undeveloped atmosphere and laid back character and on the negative side is it leads to a bumpy ride. We look forward to your return in the future. Thanks for the comments.

2nd trip to this great property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this house a year ago and chose it again for this year's trip to Nosara. There are only two of us, my husband and I, so the main portion of the house without accessing the additional two bedrooms is the perfect size for us. The ability to easily open the large patio doors and create that indoor-outdoor living space makes the overall square footage feel huge. Kitchen is well equipped (dishwasher was out of order but that's not a big deal). Master bedroom is nice size and master bath is very nice as well. The owner added a grill for guest use this year, which we were pleased to see.

Indoor seating consists of the stools at the kitchen island and a smallish couch and two chairs, but who wants to sit inside when you can be outside? I did use the couch though after dinner to read.

The outside area is very well thought out; there's a large table, 4 chaise lounges and 2 hammocks near the large and well-maintained pool. Because of the way the house is situated, you feel a good sense of privacy although there are neighbors nearby. You look down into the jungle rather than at other houses.

I understand the house is relatively new, only 2 or so years old so everything is in very good condition - no signs of wear and tear.

The alarm is easy to use, the windows are barred (tastefully) and the big gates outside the sliding doors create a sense of security. The security company itself is vigilant, and visible.

The only issue I see with this house is the access to the add'l bedrooms being from the outside patio area only. I can see this being concerning if you were traveling with children and wanted to lock up at night. You should study the floor plan of the house carefully to make sure you understand the layout. I also did not indicate "people with disabilities' in the "I'd recommend this property for..." section of the review as you need to park on the side of the road and walk down a flight of stairs to access the house as the driveway is chained off. Possibly you could ask the property management company if driveway use would be permitted if the stairs are a concern as once in the house, it's all one level.

We loved the house and would stay there again for sure! The EE section is one of the best areas in Nosara to stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review and valid comments. The design of the house with separate guest rooms was intentional, we have two sons in their 20's and it affords them privacy. We have had quite a few renters with young kids and they just lock the security gates on the guest rooms at night or when away. The driveway is quite steep and the gravel stones make a tricky surface when backing down as the car slides when braking so we do not use it very often. We need to change the surface... one day. We were misled by our builder who said it would not be a problem. We hope you come back next year to make it three in a row.

Beautiful, safe, new house in Nosara with fantastic pool

  • 5 of 5

I was here with our two young children for over one month. We loved it! The house is only a few years old and in fantastic condition. Very well built. It was very clean upon arrival and weekly cleaning staff kept it like this. All the cleaning and maintenance staff were super friendly and hard workng. The kitchen is beautiful with tons of space and all the amenities one would need. We all loved the salt water pool and this was maintained very well too. The road up to the house has security and the house itself is very secure so we always felt safe. Both bathrooms have beautiful large vanities with large walk in showers. Because of the open concept design with fans in every room we never needed A/C. Lots of closet space. Mattresses and pillows were clean and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and give this place our highest recommendation.

Amazing house & location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week here but should have been longer. This house is fantastic, better than the photos portray, so well designed to meet all our needs. We just loved opening up the sliding doors, almost like removing two walls out to the dining area and pool deck. The jungle is right there with the howler monkeys. We've rented other houses in Nosara but always felt surrounded by noisy neighbors. Here you really have your privacy but yet only minutes away from the beach, shops and restaurants. We felt safe because of the security systems and the whole section on the hill has its own security patrol. We highly recommend this house.

Great home to rent in Nosara

  • 5 of 5

Great home located up the hill in Nosara, Playa Guinones. Tucked away in the jungle you have a very private place to stay. House is very clean and comfortable. Great open layout, the kitchen living area completely opens up to the outdour living / pool area. Kitchen has everything you need to cook whatever, or not. Perfect pool and very comfortable lounges, hammocks to fully relax. And YES the monkeys were right over our heads in the trees. Never gets old.

Check in was very easy with Agnes meeting us and driving us to property and answering all the questions we had.

The house is up the hill about a mile so you do need to drive into town / beach, but after driving the hill a few times it really is no big deal.

I would reccomend the hose to anyone visting the Nosara area.
