Tough to beat this property at any price!!

  • 5 of 5

We travelled with 3 families, 6 adults and 7 kids ranging in ages from 12 – 16. Our Hosts, David and Edie, were very accommodating during the planning process. They have extensive “lifestyle” experience in Nosara and coordinated all activities including surf lessons, zip-lining, snorkeling, fishing, etc. Even fronting deposits and grocery money to make sure we had supplies when we arrived. The “Jungle’s Edge” property is quite unique. The main house is spacious, relatively updated and well-maintained. The pool and outside living space is the greatest asset of the property. There are lots of bedrooms- a huge primary master, another that can be considered a master, 2 more with queen beds that share a fairly small bathroom, a large loft with 2 bunkbeds and another room with queen and bunkbeds and it's own bathroom. A walk out the front door offers a close up view to the Howler Monkeys. Would strongly recommend hiring cooks for your group. Shopping for groceries is not an easy effort and kitchen cleanup is best handled by them, especially with no dishwasher. The food that was prepared was very good but a little more variety and less effort on our part to coordinate would have made the meal experience much better. When David is not around to translate, it made communicating a little tough. We did not rent cars, but had them arrange taxis from the airport. Transportation once we arrived, is relatively well managed. There are 2 vehicles available, an SUV and a large pickup truck with bench seating in the cargo area for up to 10 people. David and Manuel are available most of the time, but its best to plan your activities at least a ½ day in advance. There is a nominal charge for transportation. Playa Guiones, is great spot for surfing and sunsets. Although you can walk there, estimate about 20 -25 minutes. Carrying surfboards, chairs ( which are all available on property for a small rental fee) etc. is best done with vehicles. You can easily walk to a very good restaurant, located at the base of the property. Don't miss Olgas for sunset and dinner on the beach. There is also a fitness studio at the bottom of the property- make sure to arrange workouts with Davis- he is amazing and the kids loved their tailored workouts. Pamper yourselves with massages on the deck of the house. Everyone at Jungles Edge was very pleasant and attentive to our needs. The more advanced planning you do with David, the smoother your trip will be!

What a great vacation home!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The Sun House is incredible. It looks like a house they would use to host the MTV's Real World.

From January 4th - January 12th 2014, 14 of us stayed at The Sun House in Nosara, Costa Rica - and we had a blast!

My favorite thing about The Sun House was the infinity pool. The Sun House has the most amazing infinity pool with one of the best views in Nosara. The house really has everything you need, and some of us did not want to leave!

The private chef was so worth it, they cooked us breakfast, lunch and dinner for super cheap. It was so nice not worrying about cooking and cleaning up after meals. I certainly recommend the chef and the maid service.

Everything worked great at the house, we didn't have any problems at all. WiFi, TV, phone, pool table, comfortable beds, hammocks, washer/dryer, lighted pool and outside deck - everything was amazing!

We even had a visit by a troop of monkeys! They climbed around the trees 20 feet from our front door, and we have some great photos. That was truly an amazing experience I will never forget.


Yoga, Surfing, Beaches, Monkeys, Restaurants, Bars, shops, coffee, Super Markets, Monkey Sanctuary (SIBU Sanctuary), fishing, Liqueria, really nice locals, etc

We really had a very nice vacation, and we couldn't have stayed a nicer place.

Nosara is awesome, and so is The Sun House.

Pura Vida Casa del Sol!

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 14, 9 adults, youngest child 7. The area of Nosara is a sleepy beach town, pretty quiet during this season. The house is nice and well situated and secure. We loved the pool. The owners were quite accommodating from beginning to end. They answered all questions and had great recommendations for the area. Manuel who lives on the property is awesome and so nice. The cooks and maids were equally as pleasant (can be arranged). Most of all, the pool is so so awesome. Great for the kids and even a lap lane too!. If you are here with kids, they should be able to swim. Young toddlers who cannot swim need to obviously be supervised 24/7. Thank you Edie and David for a blast in CR!! The town does close down it seems in sept and oct for heavy rain can ruin the roads (confirm that) so be sure to plan a visit to Nosara around that fact to get the most out of it!

Excellent and unbelievable retreat in a pristine paradise!

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we arrived to when we left, we had the best experience possible. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly, going out of their way to help us arrange different activities months ahead of our arrival. Throughout our stay the house manager would always check to see if there was anything he could do to help out. The owners and help were truly top banana!

The house itself is unbelievable! Perched on a hill overlooking the rain forest. The pictures of the house don't do it justice. The house is well laid out and easily accommodated our group of 18 people. There are plenty of nice features that come included in the house, namely the infinity pool over looking the jungle, the yoga studio, and the sun deck (which is perfect for group dinners or sunbathing during the day) to name a few.

I would recommend this property to everyone from large groups and couple retreats to individuals. For people looking to have a relaxing base from where to explore the surrounding town, restaurants, beaches and activities (zip lining, quad biking, surfing, biological reserves, cave exploring, and more!) this is the perfect choice.

Will be back for sure!

Blissful sanctuary in the jungle

  • 5 of 5

This property is very special. We had a total of 13, including 4 children, stay here for a very short week, and we all couldn't have been happier! From the minute we arrived, we were met by the on premises caretaker, Manuel, who, despite our language difficulties, took care of us like we were visiting family. He came before we woke( or at least a few!) to clean the most beautiful, and largest, private pool we all had ever seen! Than we hired a local Tico recommended by the owner, to prepare our meals, which is so nice to come back from surf or a run or yoga, and have a nice spread of fresh fruits, juices and eggs ready for a hungry bunch. There are plenty of nooks and crannies and bedrooms so we were never felt like we were on top of each other! Did I mention the beautiful covered yoga/exercise lanai that was perfect for several of our group who are personal trainers/athletes. We had a great time and can't wait to return, plus it was a pleasure dealing with the owner, Edie. Make sure you visit Guiones mini market for everything you need! You would be hard pressed to find a more perfect rental for a large group/family. Marguerite. Montauk new York

Pura Vida

  • 5 of 5

When my wife and I booked our trip we really didn't know what to expect. Upon arriving at the property we were blown away by the tropical setting and beautiful landscaping. As we continued up the driveway we were welcomed by a family of monkeys playing in the trees, and we knew then this was going be a vacation to remember. Entering the house, we realized the pics we reviewed didn't do the house justice.I have been in construction for many years and could not believe with such limited resources the amazing workmanship of the entire house. Being only about five minutes from the beach and several open air restaurants was so convenient. There was not a restaurant we visited that we didn't come away from full and satisfied. The beaches were clean, beautiful and safe and the sunsets were amazingly spectacular. There was so much to do...horseback riding,zip line, echo tours,shopping,4 wheeling,surf lessons, paddle boarding,yoga, Pilates, and of course spending time in the house infinity pool was my sons favorite. I have traveled around the world surfing and the surf was the most consistent w/ so many optional breaks within minutes of the house. Being able to book massages and have them come to the house was areal treat. Manuel the house keeper that lives at the bottom of the property with his family was very informative and always available for any need. He is also a grill master and his chicken is to die for. Taking naps on the hammocks that surrounded the house was the perfect mid day siesta, or way to end the day. We loved the sun house and will definitely return.
