About Jane Fryer

My love of yoga and the ocean brought me to Nosara and Heartwaves is my home which expresses that love. I teach at the Nosara Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort up the street, and the Harmony Hotel Healing Centre,

and live locally.

Jane Fryer purchased this house in 2007

Why Jane Fryer chose Guanacaste

Nosara and Playa Guiones are the best of Costa Rica with an unspoiled beach and an incredible community of surfers, yogis, nature lovers and others seeking a special experience. We have gained a global reputation as a conscious sustainable community, and love hosting people from all over the world. With recent mention in the New York Times, CNN, and National Geographic, Nosara is on the map!! this piece only continues to expand as Nosara and especially Guiones beach gains momentum and visibility around the world. This little town has indeed changed since we arrived here 20 years ago. However, the beach, which is the reason to choose us ( well, the underlying reason), is still protected. Still divine, and still 3 km of the most gorgeous waves, and sunsets you can imagine. Perfect for surfing, strolling and merging with what is Mother Nature's finest. And, we have monkeys that visit in the trees surrounding the wrap around deck.

What makes this house unique

This house is in K section, which is quiet yet close to the beach. It is a short walk to the beach, 5-7 minutes, and has telephone and internet to stay connected. It is 5 minutes from the Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort, if you are taking classes there, and is a perfect space for socializing and entertaining. There is an 'energy' at Heartwaves that is like a luxurious tree house. The monkeys chat all day long, the birds grace the skies with sweet songs. Heartwaves gardens are spectacular, and the house is always surrounded by lush greens and vibrant colors. Since the two decks surrounds the big pool, the invitation to lounge outside is ever present. A large Bali Bed sits on the porch , and it's one piece that everyone wants to take home. The furniture is mostly Balinese, and we have a lot of comfy morroccan pouffes for extra seating and more lounging options. The beds also have extra pillows for reading and your total comfort.

Perfectly Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Heartwaves was perfect for our very active family of 6! We spent 12 days over Christmas at this beautiful jungle oasis. The house is beautifully landscaped that provides lots of privacy and set back from the road. The pool is perfect size and provides convenient place to cool off. The house is so comfortable, clean, and stocked with anything you might need. My 4 kids age in range from 7-18. We all surf and do yoga. This house is located nicely for a quick walk to both. Best surf break around, and awesome drop in yoga classes. Jane was very helpful and responsive, as were both the housekeeper and landscaper. The town provides great food options wether you want to eat out or buy local and cook at home. We fell in love with Heartwaves and Nosara and hope to return someday.

Perfect jungle oasis

  • 5 of 5

Heartwaves 2 proved the perfect homebase for a group of five of us (two couples and one single person) who were in Nosara for a too-short trip. Jane was very responsive from the start and continued to be throughout the booking process, arrival, and our stay. The house itself is beautiful -- the perfect size for the five of us with ample patio space, plenty of room to doze off in the shade or sun in the afternoon, a pool in which to cool off, a grill for cooking dinner and dining outside. Though not in the heart of the small town of Nosara, everything was easily within walking distance, and access to the beach is especially close (five-minute walk or so). This all served to make us feel like we were truly away from it all - but there is nothing inconvenient about the location. Everything in the house is in perfect working order, including air conditioning, kitchen, security system. The kitchen is particularly well-stocked if you're the type to cook. And Jane, in addition to being so helpful and responsive, is also so lovely. When I go back to Nosara, I will absolutely try again to stay at Heartwaves.

Paradise in the Jungle

  • 5 of 5

We have been so lucky to spend the past year at Heartwaves while our children attended school in Nosara. We have two kids (7 and 10) and have had plenty of visitors over the past 12 months and the house was great in every instance. It's a short walk to the beach (7 minutes) and also a short walk through the jungle path to get to the main street of Guiones. The beach is so close that we have been down there almost every day of this past year, either for early morning runs, surfing or the amazing sunsets.

We have spent many, many days relaxing on the bali bed or on the chairs by the pool and admiring the howler monkeys and iguanas that come by to visit, we also eat dinner out there every night. Our boys have spent countless hours swimming and looking out over the infinity edge pool for jungle creatures. Jane (the owner) and the property management has always been so great to work with and responsive to anything we have needed. Jane is also a fantastic resource for local activities and knowledge. The kitchen is equipped for anything you might want to make and its really nice to have two bathrooms plus a separate shower.

We did tons of research before selecting a neighborhood and we are so glad we chose section K. Its a little more quiet and residential with lots of families but its still close and easy access to everything.

Nosara is a very special place and was made so much more so because of staying at Heartwaves. We will miss it so much. Thank you Jane for everything!

Wonderful experience - we loved this vacation home & Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

Heartwaves was the perfect house for our family of 4 (My husband, 2 teenage girls & myself). We had plenty of room and truly enjoyed the layout and the location. It was a short walk to the beach (6 to 7 minutes) and we never had any issues with noise. We would enjoy the beach until lunch and then head back to the home to enjoy the pool and shade before heading back to the beach for sunset around 4:30 to 5pm (gorgeous sunsets). The howler monkeys & birds would visit in the trees around the home and were amazing to watch. The property is very well maintained and clean. We had a housekeeper that came twice that week and she did an excellent job. Our gardener was super friendly and he did an excellent job as well. We felt safe when we left the home (safe's provided in the home were very useful), we made sure nothing was left out. We would highly recommend this vacation property - it was great! Our questions were answered immediately and we were checked in on to make sure everything was ok throughout the week. Some activities that we would recommend are Miss Sky Zip Lining Tour, going to La Garta Lodge and having drinks while enjoying the sunset (nature reserve), walking to Pelada Beach, and the Rodeo. Some of the places we ate that were great: Kaya Sol, Beach Dog, Gilded Iguana, Il Basilico, Giardino Tropicale. We are looking forward to returning next year and would definitely stay at Heartwaves again!!!! Thank you so much Jane!

Heartwaves time

  • 5 of 5

The location is magic, all is how the description shows, the place have a nice atmosphere and we really did have awesome time:-)

The owner is very lovely person.

The location was clean and well maintained.

I will recommend this place to everybody.

The beach is walk distance about 10 min., by bike c/a 3-5 min.

Section K is one of the closest places to the beach and shopping area.

Beautiful nature and nice comfortable place to stay for your holiday or as a rental house for a longer period of time.

A Peaceful excape with private pool, AC, WIFI, etc.

  • 5 of 5

This is a large (3 bedroom) beautifully designed and furnished home with long, private pool, good for laps. The day bed on the patio is an extra treat. Every room has AC and it is secure. It has WiFi and a large flatscreen TV for DVDs. The location is excellent for yoga, horseback riding, surfing, and spectacular sunsets on the beach. The owner, a yoga instructor, has created a space of peace and serenity. We enjoyed our stay. Thank you, Jane.

Car: recommended

abundant yoga and massage , Nosara is all about surfing, the beach, and the overall gorgeousness of Nature. The Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort up the street has nice bikes for rent. Heartwaves is halfway between Nosara Yoga Institute and Bakers Beach entrance on South Guiones.
