Why Mitzi and Katie chose Playa Guiones

We discovered Nosara, Costa Rica from fellow surf and yoga enthusiasts and immediately fell in love. La Casa Sombra was the perfect location to call home! Walking distance to everything! We wanted to share our love for the town with friends, family, and fellow travelers so we decided to purchase La Casa Sombra and invite everyone to share the love!

What makes this house unique

La Casa Sombra is located on the 'yoga trail' 5-minutes walk to the Nosara Yoga Institute, 2-minute walk to the center of town, and a 10-minute walk to Playa Guiones beach with miles of world class surf.

La Casa Sombra- On the Nosara 'yoga trail' walk to everything in minutes!
average rating of 5.0 based on 1 reviews

Loved it & would definitely go back!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Sombra for 6 weeks this year and we absolutely loved it. Here's why:

- Cutest house in the jungle with enough privacy! Not having anyone living upstairs, downstairs and too close on the side is quite nice!

- Surrounded by nature, you'll see monkey's, lizards, different birds like parakeet and others

- Super comfy house with everything we needed which was basically a comfy bed, full kitchen, bathroom, wifi (fast enough too), a working phone & a safe.

- Location is perfect. 10 min walk to playa Guiones, Nosara yoga institute and very close to shops and restaurants

- the Managers (Mark and Janet) truly do an amazing job! They're just the most helpful people ever!

Good to know:

- the local bank / ATM does not accept bank card with a chip. You'll most likely need to go into the town of Nosara which requires either a car or a quad. You could alway use a tuk-tuk service for about 8$

- If you're staying here for a longer period, you're going to want to do your grocery shopping in Nosara town. There are groceries near Guiones but the selection is much more limited and more pricey. For a week it will be good enough but for more

- Even with this great location at Guiones we really enjoy our quad rental since it's allowed us to go to explore different beaches (Pelada is beautiful, Playa Carillo near Samara too!) go to nearby towns and do errands easily.

Overall I reccommed to anyone coming to Nosara to book this place!
