Sleep with the sound of the ocean breeze and wake to the morning calls of howler monkeys and parrots. Experience a taste of paradise in this quiet tropical beach getaway set in a natural bio reserve. Just steps away from a great swimming beach and a 7-minute walk to well-known Guiones Beach- a surfer's paradise.

One guest bedroom has a queen-size bed and shares adjoining porch with master bedroom. The third bedroom off living room has a double bed. The guest bedrooms share a bathroom that has a small bathtub and shower. All bedrooms and living spaces bring the outdoors in and you always feel like you are living in a tropical jungle.

The large and expansive living room features an open space concept with several seating areas with traditional hand-made clay tiles giving a colonial back-to-nature feel yet modern and tropical.

Indoor large round table, informal seating in entrance patio, or barstool seating on granite countertop between kitchen and living room provide various options for meals. Breakfast on the patio is usually accompanied by several species of hummingbirds feeding on flowers just a few feet away!

Spacious, Secure, Comfort & Location

  • 5 of 5

I've spent the past ten winters in Playa Pelada and this is by far the nicest most spacious place I've ever stayed. The unit is nicely shaded and pretty cool all afternoon with lots of air circulation flowing through. The kitchen is great as well with a nice cooking & dinning area for family and friends. Great Pool above thats always clean with little traffic. Close to the beach and everything else you may need, food, drink or night life-wise.

In Costa Rica having a secure place to live and keep valuables is a high priority. In addition to security on the grounds and all the neighbors in the condo, this place is extremely secure with little to no worries of theft.

As are most places in Pelada & Guiones its hard to escape the sound of moto's & car's all day and night as well as noise from the local bar's, this place is no exception but being tucked away up on a hill its a little less than most. Overall this place is amazing. I stayed here about two years ago with my wife, our one year old son, and a few friends for almost two months. The owners were great & let us feel at home and were always there to accommodate any need we had. For anyone traveling with family or a group of friends I cant imagine anything nicer than this place..

Thanks Andrew Jacob & Family

Perfect location and excellent value!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4, including two teenage girls had the most amazing trip to Nosara! We loved the convenience of having our own kitchen and dining area. The adorable organic market is only about 500 yds away and several delicious restaurants when we wanted to eat out! Howler monkeys were our welcomed neighbors including beautiful birds and tons of butterflies throughout the gorgeous and perfectly manicured gardens! The beach is a 2 minute walk from the small complex. And the pool was refreshing too! The complex is very secure and safe with a security gate and secure parking garages for every unit. Our condo's manager, Angela helped us with driving directions to every destination and every recommendation was perfect! Will definitely return!! Thank you so much!!

Beautiful, so close to all that is great in Nosara, but noisy

  • 4 of 5

This is a gorgeous place with an excellent location. It is close to the beach, the best surf beach, fabulous restaurants, surrounded by flowers and jungle, howler monkeys and hummingbirds. The information on the site mentions it being a quiet place, "keep cell phone and skype conversations to a minimum" yet they fail to mention that it is located on a heavily traveled dirt road with constant mopeds, motorcycles and four-wheelers 24 hours a day. You could only hear the monkeys, birds, etc between vehicles below. Also, there are two bathrooms which have showers - neither of which have water pressure beyond a trickle/drip. There are two outdoor showers that we had to use with soap, shampoo, etc. Awesome to have the laundry facilities. Overall a great trip, we felt safe there, but I wish I'd known about the above factors. Friendly manager who was helpful.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your valuable feedback and for emailing that it was a magical vacation and that you look forward to returning. Sorry your week overlapped with, unbeknownst to us, the end of the season parties at Olga's restaurant by the beach. Water pressure fixed. - we ask guests to let our rental manager know of problems so they can be remedied immediately. Look forward to having you return.

One of the best place to stay in Nosara

  • 5 of 5

This condo is on the ground floor with 2 big terrasses, there are 2 full bathrooms and 3 closed bed room, with one sofa bed in the big room with a king bed. There is a nother single bed beside the living room. There are a lot of coutch, inside and on the terrasse, so every one can relax after a good day at the beach.

The kitchen as every supplies you may need to kook, and there is also a washing machine and a dryier tha you can use for free. You will feel just like home.

It is just a minute walk to playa Pelada witch was my favorite for swiming and sun bathing. And 5 minutes walk to playa Guiones.

The condo manager was hawsome, and is available to answer all of your questions, and to help with anaything you may need. We also used the big pool of the condo, ehwn back from the beach. The place was clean, and verry safe, even with a night time guard.

Thank you To Henry and Reiner, we realy felt like home.

I recommand this place without a doubt.

Hope to go back.
