Overview

About the property

2 Bed 2 Bath Home With A/c, Pool, Internet, Cable TV And Incredible Sunsets!

Casa con Vista was one of the first homes to be built in the community and despite the home not being as refined as the newer homes (25 years ago, building materials were not as available as they are today) the home is not lacking in the necessities. The home has 2 master suites, both with a single queen bed and its own bath. Great for 2 couples! It has a kitchen that is fully stocked with utensils and a BBQ grill for cooking out. A refrigerator with an ice maker, electric stove top, coffee maker, blender, toaster oven, toaster, microwave and a reverse osmosis water system to save money on buying bottled water. The kitchen/dining and sitting area has windows with screens to allow the breezes through. All rooms have a/c and ceiling fans.There is an outdoor shower where guests can rinse off after their trip to the beach an we request that you do so before putting sandy laundry in the washer/dryer! Cable TV, a flat screen television, a usb/blu-ray player, phone and internet are provided. The house also has a large saltwater infinity pool which is maintained weekly. Housekeeping is is upon request. Other amenities include a safe, hot water, trash pick up once a week, and locally built patio furniture so you can enjoy the awesome views and sunsets.

The house is continuously being updated in the off season, so if you don't mind some cosmetic flaws (some cracked tile and a dated kitchen) you will find the peaceful and beautiful setting of Casa con Vista one of the best places to stay.

The property is not wheel chair accessible. Smoking is permitted outside only. A security deposit of $300 is required and returned immediately after check out inspection. Minimum age to rent is 21.

A mix of really amazing and really not

  • 2 of 5

If I could rate the view, the deck and the pool alone, I would give it 5 stars. If I were to rate the interior of the property based on condition and care, I would give it 2 stars at best. The property is in need of TLC both basic cleaning and maintenance. Personal hygiene items left behind from prior renters, a used bar of soap left in shower, dirty towel on rack in master. Clean towels haphazardly placed in master closet – bag from laundry service torn open and a few removed and placed on counter. Trash from prior renter left in outdoor garbage can. All items easily rectified if someone was paying attention.

The bigger issues lie in the inaccuracy of the listing on HomeAway. The written description reads “Housekeeping is also weekly unless requested otherwise”. There was no housekeeping during our stay, nor ever mentioned by caretaker.

In reviewing the photos included with the listing, I note the following:

Photo 2 - Rug pictured is presently rolled up and stuck in closet in guest room.

Photo 5 of master shower does not show drain which has a large opening through which scorpions crawl up. Happened twice to us.

Photo 6 – gas grill was inoperable during our stay.

Photo 7 – the rocking chairs pictured were nowhere to be found.

Photo 16 – the safe pictured is not the one in place. The one that is there does not work properly. The caretaker had to leave us the master key as the combination is not able to be set.

Photo 20 – washing machine was inoperable during our stay. It ceased working while I was using, would not spin, rinse or drain.

We brought the majority of the items to be repaired to the owner and caretaker’s attention and while not resolved during our stay, we were refunded a portion of the cost of our rental.

On the upside, the view and the sunsets are spectacular. That wraparound deck and pool are the nicest we’ve ever had in several visits to Nosara and several different rental homes. Addressing the inside “stuff” would make this one of the best rentals in town.

The biggest concern presently in this or any house in Nosara is the shortage of water they are experiencing. We found ourselves without running water for 12-14 hours per day. It would shut off around 5:00 pm and not return until 8:00 am or so. Many homes in Nosara have a reserve tank that alleviates this problem. We learned that this house had one but it was not in use. Caretaker was working to make it operational when we left.

Owner's Response: Since your stay, we have replaced the washer and dryer and completed the back-up water supply along with other items mentioned. Weekly housekeeping was poorly worded in the description. It should read: housekeeping upon request.

Private retreat!!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing!!!!

We rented this house for our annual January getaway. Very nice. Very private. The views were amazing. While everyone else was at the beach for sunset, we were sitting by the pool chilling out.

We plan to come back soon

The house is (almost) all we expected.

  • 4 of 5

That "almost" in the title just reflects that the house could use a little more tender loving care. None of that interfered with enjoying the house, though. We loved the "glass house" feel and the privacy that makes such a house comfortable to live in.

The major downside is that it is located up a steep hill from a dusty, busy gravel road. There was more dust and more traffic noise than we expected.

There were some minor problems while we were there, and the local contact took care of them quickly and efficiently. The owner was helpful by providing useful information

AMAZING!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was amazing! The view was 2nd to none, the pool was absolutely fantastic, the house itself was very comfortable and relaxing. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay, very clean, maintained, and beautiful. I would highly recommend staying here. Sports fishing in this area is fantastic, local food was fantastic too.

fantastic,comfortable,clean ,beyond expectations

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic! Our stay at Casa Con Vista was really a wonderful relaxing vacation! The house is very comfortable and clean to perfection. No bugs! A very well equipped kitchen where everyday we enjoyed fresh local mangoes, papaya and melons. How about the infinity swimming pool? Water temperature so comfortable you never want to get out. Views from the pool and deck stretch maybe 30 miles in each direction. Lots of new and different bird songs and calls from the Howler Monkeys. A really good job by the housekeeping and maintenance crews to keep the house very clean and well maintained!!

Salt water fishing with The Sportsman is another bonus! The 32 ft vessel is well maintained by Capt Eduardo and crew Chano and Steven These local guys really know where to find the fish and how to catch them. They are really a pleasure to be with. Like being with old friends!!

Great place to vacation with a beautiful house, fun things to do and really friendly locals. We are already planning next years trip but for at least 2 weeks.

Excellent retreat from everyday life

  • 5 of 5

The property is secluded with beautiful views and all the amenities you need. I walked to the market in Nosara almost every day and it takes about 45 minutes-there is cab service right to house and to the market for about $25 round trip-they pick u up right at the house -wait while you shop and return you to the house-Thomas Reyes from Abel taxi-number is in the phone book at the house-he was very accommodating . The pool is beautiful-the house has a wrap around porch and allows views of the ocean and the Nosara country side. You can walk to the beach in 20 minutes and there are many places to eat and drink along the way- Prices for food ranged from $2 chicken/pork/fish on a stick to around $30 per person including drinks (marlin Bills)/pizza at Basillios was $36 for two large with tip-enough for four people- All in all very good place to vacation and the views are unbelieveable!!!

Casa Con Vista sets above the world famous surfing beaches of Nosara. From the house you can see all the local beaches and decide which beach you want to surf before even leaving the house! The setting is quiet and secluded yet only minutes away from the night life. Restaurants, bars, convenience stores, supermarkets, shopping, an office center and even a pastry shop is within minutes of the house. Transportation is required, whether it be a car or quad, and both are available to rent nearby.

If fishing is your thing, you have come to the right place! We run fishing charters on our boat, the 32' SPORTSMAN out of Garza, just a 15 minute drive from the house. Inshore fishing for snapper and grouper, offshore for mahi, sailfish and marlin. We also offer sunset cruises, a nice way to finish off your vacation, and surf trips where we take boards and surfers to inaccessible breaks. Contact us for fishing packages and check out our web site at sportsmancr.com for more info.

There are plenty of tours to experience too. Zip lining, horseback rides, river canoeing, quad tours, paddle boards and the famous Nosara Yoga Institute are all within minutes of the house.

The house is just minutes away from the Nosara Airport, about 2 hours from the Liberia International Airport and about 4 hours from the San Jose International Airport
