About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6), featured on House Hunters International

The magical village of Playa Nosara is located on the Western Coast of Costa Rica. The area is lush with jungle flowers and trees and hosts abundant wildlife..howler monkeys, iguanas, toucans and parrots. The Nosara area includes three distinct beach areas, Playa Nosara, Playa Guiones and Playa Pelada where the house is located.

There is a 300 ft easement from the beach to the house that is protected as a wildlife refuge so there is a 5 minute walk. Step through the trees and you find the most beautiful, quiet, white sand beach, great for swimming, beachcombing and sunbathing. A 5 minute walk over a hill and you'll find Playa Guiones, considered one of the best surf spots on the central peninsula.

Within walking distance are great restaurants, ATV rentals, groceries and hotels. All the roads in and around Nosara are unpaved so Jeeps, ATV's and walking are the best methods of transportation. There are shuttle services, tour companies and buses that operate out of Nosara.

For recreational needs there are several surf camps located in the town in addition to surf board rentals and private, daily surf instruction. Located just south of Playa Giones is the famous Nosara Yoga Institute which has regular classes and workshops. There are guided tours to the Refugio Nacional de Fauna Silvestre.

Ostional where you can watch the arrival of the turtles. Or if inactivity is more your desire, spread out your towel on the beautiful white sand beach and listen to the waves and the sea gulls or sit in a rocking chair on the verandah and sip local Tico beer.

If you're looking for a culinary experience, the restaurants in Nosara are very high quality and reasonably affordable. The typical dish, Casados, of rice, beans, plantains and chicken, fish or beef is by far the freshest, best value. There are pizza restaurants, Asian influenced and European restaurants as well.

The house is well appointed with hand made solid teak furniture and bright fabrics. There are two bedrooms downstairs with a queen bed in one and a king size bed in the other bedroom and the upstairs loft has 2 twin beds.

The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you need to prepare full gourmet meals or just whip up your mango and pineapple smoothies. There is a good sized combination safe in the closet so you needn't worry about your valuables. Beach towels are provided for your use.

NEW: We have just completed a new outdoor living space including a pool and well equipped ranchito. We promise an unforgettable experience in a one-of-kind spot in what we believe to be an amazingly, beautiful country.

Lovely villa near beautiful sandy beach

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Paraisito in Feb 2017. Thoroughly enjoyed the villa - though thank goodness A/C was working because it was hot! Both main floor bedrooms were well-appointed and comfortable thanks to A/C. Kitchen is perfect for anyone looking to make simple meals. Pool is small - but was absolutely perfect after a morning at the beach or an outing - all 4 of us (2 adults, 2 kids) managed to hang out and cool down and even swim a few mini-laps. Would note that at least when we were there, it would have been way too hot to have anyone sleeping in the loft, as there's no functioning A/C up there - so good thing we were only 4 people and could adapt the main floor bedrooms to our needs. Thanks for a great stay!

Paraisito is heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5

Our second visit here for two weeks was even better than the first time (we were here for a week in 2015). The addition of the pool, which we used many times everyday, and the rancho for dinner every evening were great additions. The house is well equipped and very comfortable for us as two couples. We took day trips to Playa Giones, Samara, Punta Islita. Some us had Tica massages, while others had an introduction to yoga, in spectacular settings. The quiet beach was only a short walk, for swimming and body surfing, and Olga's for coffee or lunch.

The Howler monkeys provided hours of entertainment right in our backyard.

The area suffers from serious drought conditions and the owners have installed a backup water system. We had a few small problems with it, but they were fixed promptly.

We had a wonderful time and look forward to coming back again.

Great time at a great place!

  • 4 of 5

Our family did a week in Nosara and had a great time at the house! The pictures don't really do the place justice! The kids enjoyed the pool and the beach was a short walk which was really nice! We enjoyed eating dinner outside each night too! Would definitely stay there again! :)

Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here at this lovely house. We know this area quite well as we have family living here. This was a great house for us, very secure and close to the beach. Great outdoor space, nice kitchen, refreshing pool. We had a problem with the refrigerator and the management company took care of it right away. We had 5 people in the house and there was plenty of room for all. We are going back again soon and have already booked this house!

Enjoyed our stay but

  • 4 of 5

Would have appreciated knowing about the water shortage prior to our arrival. We arrived on a Saturday after a long drive from Arenal and although we had been in touch with the property managers several times they did not mention that the water would be turned off after 4 PM and not be turned on until 9 AM the next day. We arrived just after 4PM and truly all wanted a shower. The water shortage also changed our holiday as we had to adapt our comings and goings to when the water was on so that we could fill up about 15 water jugs for the night. The house was lovely and thank goodness we had the pool. We also had to ask the property managers for glasses and mugs as there was not enough for the 5 of us--they were quick to respond but should have checked the house after the last visitors left. We love Costa Rica and Nosara in particular --great people, food and beaches and will go again but would be hesitant to rent from this property manager again.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. We would have liked to have known about the water shortage as well! Communication can be a challenge at times. We appreciate your raising this so it could be addressed. We now have a backup water system in place that provides fantastic quality and abundant water 24/7.
