Why Tory chose Guanacaste

Playa Guiones and Costa Rica is such a wonderful enviroment! The people and landscape are something we had been looking for quite some time. I can only wait for the day we can make the permanent move!

We had a great relaxing time at casa cansado.This is a nice ,simple and fonctional little retreat. A great advantage this house has is being on a dead end road...To all renters in Costa rica in the dry season..DUST is a Nightmare will breath it,eat it and sleep with it...Not at Gato Cansado...No traffic goes by the house .We had our 5 month old baby and the quiet setting was a +..The howler monkeys will Howl ,thats what they do..Even at 4 am ,but thats the same within a 500 mile radius.Thanks to Virginie and Ivan(the managers) for there help.This house is a 10 minute walk to the beach and a 1 minute drive...Once again ,great quiet and DUST free location...We definitly recomand it...

Love love love this cute adorable Casita!

  • 5 of 5

At the end of the road surrounded by jungle is private one bedroom Gato Cansado. The location is priceless. Walking distance to the beach, waking up to the local troop of howler monkeys and the sing song of the birds is a joy beyond words.

Loved the casita that keeps you drawn outside to the jungle rain or shine.

We loved out stay at Gato Cansado. Quaint and cozy, perfect for couple. The house had everything needed, including kitchen utensils and bathroom/bedroom linens. There's an extra couch/day bed. The A/C was a real treat....get it as it made sleeping that much better. It was so nice waking up to the howler monkeys every morning. I have never been to C. America before and literally thought it was the wind blowing! But no, it was the howler monkeys! The pool out front was also super sweet, especially after surfing, where a quick dip negated the need for a shower some of the time. The house sits at the top of a hill. We had a car, which was nice and convenient, but it's also very feasible to walk to Playa Guiones (maybe 15-20 min walk, less than 5 min drive). Just downhill from the house is a very nice yoga institute, which also offers walk in yoga classes with the most amazing view of jungle and ocean. Can't recommend Gato Cansado enough!

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our week long stay here! It is a beautiful and comfortable little villa with just about everything you could need. We had a car rental, however many things, e.g. beach, yoga, store, and some restaurants, are also within walking distance. The house manager was great in taking care of things. The little dipping pool, patio, and outdoor speakers (bring your own ipod--this plugs into the audio cord, which is plugged into the bluetooth, or some other bluetooth enabled device) were so nice we enjoyed our own yoga practice daily. It was amazing and I would definitely stay here again if I was in Nosara!
