Playa Guiones House Rental Photos and Description

House, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 3)

Located in the K Section of Playa Guiones, Gato Cansado is a rare find!

Situated on a small hilltop you are surround by tree top canopy (and sometimes a glimpse of an ocean view!). A perfect getaway for couples seeking seclusion. Yet it is only a ten minute walk to the yoga institute and a fifteen minute walk from the beach, surfing, shops and restaurants!

A house manager is available for airport pick up, stocking groceries and other services.

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!

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.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Gato Cansado is a tiny bungalow at the top of a hill in K Section. It's a 15 minute walk to the surf. Small and cozy, this Casita was perfectly functional for my wife and me. If you are looking for luxury, this is not your place. If you have simple tastes you will love it. The fence around the property gives you privacy and the cottage is bordered on three sides by forest, so you will see some wildlife. You’ll have neighbors are close by on one side and you can hear their conversations as they sit by their pool. Gato Cansado’s small soaking pool is refreshing after walking up the steep hill from the beach. We did not contract for the AC, preferring to enjoy the Costa Rican heat after a long, cold New England winter. If you want to go out for dinner you will need some type of transportation.

Virginie, the property manager, was responsive and sweet and made our trip hassle free. We would have no hesitation renting Gato Cansado again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review! I'm happy you had such a relaxing trip at Gato Cansado! For future renters; I have found that most of our guests (of all ages!) do not require a vehicle and will walk or ride bikes everywhere. And yes, we are on a small hill, although the steepness is all relative to what you are used to. We have no problem riding our bikes up the hill after a long day of surfing or at night after dinner. Again, that is all dependent on what you are comfortable with. Pura Vida!

Excellent Costa Rica vacation

  • 5 of 5

I loved this house in Nosara, it is the right size for a couple who wants to get away for a little romance. The house is charming and well appointed and in a quite private area. It is in walking distance to a beach and it is close to the town of Norara which is known for its surfing beaches. I particularly

Loved the beaches at sunset, the colors of the sky and water are amazing. We were able to find fabulous restaurants in the area. We will return again to this cute house for a private and romantic vacation.
