Brand new appartement at 500 meters from beautiful Playa Guiones. In front of the appartement is a green zone (protected area for wildlife), where you will see monkeys every day (every second day for sure), squirrel and beautiful birds, etc.
The appartement is located on the second floor of a new building, you will have a TOTAL privacy !
It is a 100 square meters appartement with 2 bedrooms (one of them with additional mezzanine). American kitchen. Beautiful 30 m2 terrace with jacuzzi just in front of the 'green zone'. Each bedroom has its own luxury bathroom and large closet.
During your stay, you can enjoy the swimming pool of the hotel 'cafe de Paris' located at less than 100 meters from the appartement.
We are a couple, swiss and columbian, living in Switzerland and spending a part of the year in central America.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2008
We have been traveling a lot in latin America and we see Nosara as a really wonderful place.
You will have a wonderful time in Nosara. A lot of people see it as the perfect mix between beautiful nature, beach and 'the everything you need' as good restaurants (at walking distance), small clinic (at 50 meters from the condo) , security (at 100 meter from the condo) etc. The community of Nosara is a mix of native and foreign people. Wonderful spot for surfing, famous for yoga, river tour possible, birds and wildlife watching, zip line canopy tour, horse riding, excellent fishing. With a 20 min drive you will reach Playa Otional, which is a world famous nesting spot for the Olive Ridley Sea Turtle.
We had a long term stay in this property starting in February of 2013. The photos and descriptions in the listing are accurate. It is spacious, comfortable, and contemporary. The wonderful great room with floor to ceiling windows made us feel that we were living in the jungle. We loved daily wildlife watching including birds, monkeys, iguanas, and pizotes.
The location was perfect for us. Our family easily walked to the beach multiple times a day, which took around ten minutes at an 8 year old's pace. The condo is just across the street from the grocery store, the visiting produce truck, and just a bit farther to Organico Market, Experience Nosara Paddle Boarding, and Rosi's Soda Cafe. The Yoga Institute is a ten minute walk and yoga at the Harmony Hotel was even closer. Nosara Tico Surf Shop is on the walk from the condo to the beach, as is the Tuesday farmer's market.
The managers through the Cafe de Paris were wonderful and welcoming. They very quickly responded to any issues, including replacing the blender within a day and fixing the dishwasher. The handyman was amazing. The internet was out at the start of our visit and needed visits from a variety of people before it ultimately became functional.
Our only suggestion for condo improvement would be for more bedroom window coverings, as the master bedroom becomes light by 5:30 in the morning, and the second bedroom shortly thereafter.
There is one set of stairs up to the condo, and it is next to the modern suites from Cafe de Paris, with shops on the lower level of the building. The bedrooms are on opposite sides of the great room. The master bedroom opens onto the main deck through uncurtained glass sliders, allowing you to see from the master bed to the deck and into the great room. The deck railing and bedroom loft make this property less ideal for families with young children.
Part of both the charm and challenge of being in remote Costa Rica is the infrastructure. Expect that sometimes the power, water, or internet will goes out, and sometimes the ATM machines don't have money. During our visit at the end of the dry season, sometimes the entire town would not have water for 8-12 hours stretches, several days in a row. The hot tub was a nice addition during those days.
The property, location, and managers were all better than we hoped. Pura Vida
I am currently at this condo, and wishing I had another week or month here. I have been to Nosara often, and so glad I found this condo for this trip. I am alone, and enjoying the security of the location of this unit being on the backside of a small strip mall. Yet very, very private!!!! So wonderful to sit here with the doors open and listening to the surf and watching the howler monkeys and rufous-naped wrens in the trees. Yesterday I photographed a Trogon in the tree right off the patio. I love Nosara - and always recommend clients to Nosara - and they always enjoy this location too. The wonderful white sand beach, Playa Guiones, is awesome, and the restaurants are perfect. The condo is within easy walking distance of everything you need ... mini market, organic market, liquor store, many tasty restaurants, rental car companies, banks for cash, fruit stands, etc. Nosara is very easy to get to by either local air or driving or hiring a driver/van from Liberia. I highly recommend this condo. The back bedroom is very comfortable, with a very comfortable bed, great private bath, and huge closet off bath. The front bedroom is very nice too, but noisier with street traffic. Condo has a wonderfully well appointed full kitchen, and very comfortable couch for lounging, very spacious, and very well lit. Book it, you will love it!!!
We stayed here a year ago. It was a beautiful condo with everything you need. Great location - near an organic market and Coconut Harry's surf shop. The Cafe Paris bakery is amazing. We loved that we had access to the pool at the hotel across the way, too. Super nice loungers in the shade to hang out on in the heat of the day. Great service thru the hotel, too, but still a private residence. Best of both worlds!
