The top level opens to a tiled terrace and an inviting infinity dipping pool with views over the forest to the coast.

An outdoor shower next to the pool and wireless internet throughout the house make relaxing here with the coastal breezes a delighful experience all day long.

Other local activities include isolated beaches, kayaking and paddle boarding, canopy tours and zip lines, fishing, turtle watching, and birding in protected reserves.

We welcome you to our home for the best of both worlds: nestled in the privacy of the forest setting, while having easy access to yoga, bodywork, beaches, healthy food, and many other local activities!
I booked my trip to Costa Rica with one goal in mind...to relax and enjoy myself. When you can call a home like this your basecamp..starting/stoping point..it makes everything else easy.
The home and grounds are amazing. You can spend a day by the pool (which is just outside the kitchen/living space) or walk to the beach (short 10 minute walk).
If you're feeling a little more adventurous, take a short drive down to Playa Guiones (Nosara Beach). It's an amazing small town known for their surf.
Overall I can't say enough great things about this home!
This is a secure and secluded rental in paradise that's close to the best beaches in Nicoya. Car is necessary for your stay but is worth every penny since a drive on beach is just up the street. We will be coming back many more times in the future. Our son loved the pool and all the birds. Again, words cannot discribe this amazing property.
My family and friends have visited Casa Mirada for three consecutive years. I have traveled to many parts of the world in my lifetime. After my incredible experience at this house, I hope to return once a year during my remaining years on earth. The spacious, tropical architecture of the house is mesmerizing. You’re spirit will be set free among the treetops, coastal farmland and ocean breeze. You’ll be greeted and captivated by many types of beautiful wildlife. Allow your body to soak in the sun rays, bathe in the infinity pool while bird watching to rejuvenate your soul. Take multiple days to rest all day in the house. It has all the amenities you’ll need to feel right at home. Positioned in a Blue Zone, you’ll find healthy, organic options for food and supplies everywhere you turn. The property is located just down the road from Blue Spirit, where you can find their beach path access to the stunning Playa Rosada. Head just a few minutes south by automobile to visit gorgeous Garza Bay and wade in the tidal pools. If it’s an adventure you’re seeking, head to Playa Guiones. It’s main street is full of restaurants, rentals and shopping. The Nosara Yoga Institute is on the way if you want to catch a public yoga class on the way to town. Playa Guiones has one of the best surf breaks in the world for any level of surfer. The location of the house is situated just the right amount of distance from town so your privacy, peace and tranquility are never disturbed. If you like to cook at home, a convenience store and super market are located near by. I highly recommend renting this home, it doesn’t get much better than this. Be prepared, you won’t want to leave. It’s that amazing, absolutely magical.
I loved everything about this house!
First of all, the town of Nosara is a great little surfing community that doesn't feel touristy. It's got plenty of authenticity and the locals are some of the nicest people I've ever met. Not to mention the beaches are incredible! And it's a great place to learn how to surf. Couldn't have learned in a safer, cleaner, more beautiful environment.
But enough about the town and the beaches, the house is great! The living room and kitchen (which has everything you could ever need) are on the second floor so you can walk right out to the infinity pool which overlooks some hills and even a bit of farm land. In the distance, you can even see the ocean. And if you love birds, you'll see a ton of them from the pool.
The bedrooms are a great size and the bathrooms are all top notch. There's a master bedroom on the first floor which has AC - something that I think is only necessary if you go during the rainy season (which is usually hot and humid and of course... rainy). Otherwise, each bedroom has a patio/villa with double doors that open so the breeze can come in and you hear all of the wildlife... just incredibly peaceful and beautiful!
The house is in a great gated community right next to the beach as well. You simply walk through the community to get to the beach (maybe a 10 minute walk) and along the way you might even see some monkeys!
The road getting to the community (and the roads in general) are pretty rough: dirt and gravel and a ton of holes, etc. So I would definitely get a small SUV (or something like it) with 4 wheel drive (if you're renting a car). And if you are planning on surfing, the rock free beach is a little walk down from the beach that's closest to the house... so plan on that. Of course you can drive to that area as well, which is only about a 7-minute drive.
Overall, just an incredible house in an incredible town! Couldn't have had more fun or asked for a better experience! I highly highly highly recommend this for anyone planning on visiting Costa Rica.
My husband, adult son and I just spent a week in this wonderful home! The house had everything we needed - a well equipped kitchen, Internet, beach towels, and a perfect dipping pool to name a few. The house is in a gated community but there aren't any neighbors in sight and The Blue Spirit Retreat is within walking distance. The house sits on the side of a hill with a view of the ocean from the main living area. Getting to the ocean is about a 10 minute walk and once you reach the ocean you can swim or walk along the shore for miles. The beach town of Gioness has many great places to eat and is a short drive from the house. The owners were very helpful, answered all my questions, and have a gardner and house cleaner that keep the house in tip top shape! I would highly recommend this property!
I spent a wonderful week in the house with my wife. The house is beautiful inside and out. It is quiet and secluded with lovely walks to two different beaches. One walk takes you through the jungle where you can see monkeys, lots of birds and other wildlife. I could have spent all day lounging at the house, listening to birds and taking in the view from the side of the pool, but there is plenty to do in the area. The house is a short drive from Nosara and so is convenient to restaurants and shops. We went to a different beach each day, went on a ziplining tour and snorkeled. We usually came back to the house for a nap in the afternoon and then either cooked dinner at home or went out to a restaurant in Nosara or further north for dinner and drinks. Then we went back to the house to read and watch thunderstorms over the ocean from poolside. We often think about going back and can't wait to do it.

Guiones Beach, Garza Beach and the town of Garza can be reached on foot along the beach or via a short drive.

This house is the best of both worlds: nestled in the privacy of the forest setting, while having easy access to beaches and other activities!
