About the property

2b/2ba - Panoramic Ocean Views

Enter through the gates onto the poolside patio and prepare to fall in love with panoramic, white water ocean views, complete privacy in a tropical setting. Enjoy your privacy and safety at a home located at the very end of a dead-end street.

Casa Maravillosa boasts perhaps the best views in all of Nosara which can be admired from any number of outdoor living areas. Pour an evening cocktail and relax on our spacious wraparound patio and soak in sunset views across a 270 degree expanse of ocean, mountain and river valley. Perched 500 feet above Playa Guiones, Casa Maravillosa is located in the desirable Las Huacas (E section) just minutes from town and Playa Guiones. Our guests enjoy year round cooling breezes off of the ocean, perfect for our sun-filled Nosara days. Be restful and relaxed on your vacation in complete privacy – located at the end of a cul-de-sac, enjoy the serenity of 2.75 acres of unobstructed sweeping views.

As you may know, Playa Guiones faces water rationing from ~late December through April (often no water mid afternoon - morning). However, you can rest assured. Casa Maravillosa has a private well that supplies abundant, year-round water to the house.

We renovated/redecorated our home December 2016:

1) Created a bunkroom with 2 custom twin bunk beds and one double bed.

2) Opened up the living room to include a sitting area and new TV stand for the ~47” flatscreen.

3) Updated the kitchen and bathroom fixtures / hardware

4) Added a new luxurious outdoor shower

5) Landscaped the front entrance and updated the gate door creating a more welcoming feel.

6) Planted 30 fruit trees on the property

Our home can be rented as a 2bd/2ba or 4bd/4ba.

About Danielle & Noam Bauman

Danielle and Noam Bauman are happily married and live in San Francisco. We met 11 years ago just after celebrating our 25th birthdays. Danielle grew up outside of Portland, Oregon and Noam in Connecticut. We love food, travel, exercise (well, at least Danielle), yoga, farmers markets, the outdoors, and adventure. We love calling SF home, but will soon be moving to Nosara to write the next chapter in our lives!

Danielle & Noam Bauman purchased this house in 2016

Why Danielle & Noam Bauman chose Nosara

The culture, mindset and spirit of the people in Nosara, combined with the beauty and connection to nature, and the ability to live a simpler life without forgoing the finer things have captured out hearts and imaginations. Nosara is a surf / yoga / wellness town full of intelligent, motivated, entrepreneurial people who have deliberately chosen to live at a different pace of life.

What makes this house unique

As we rounded the corner of the private road and the panoramic views extended in front of us, we knew we had found our future home. Not impulsive by nature, Casa Maravillosa spoke to us instantly, and at that point our minds were made up – we were buying the house and some day moving to Nosara. Beyond the views, you will love the privacy of the property and the flexibility of the set-up, with a main house, guest cottage, and studio apartment, all with amazing views.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It’s hard to believe, but pictures don’t even do this property justice. This house is absolutely AMAZING! And the views are even more breathtaking. I was in Nosrara for just over a week with my boyfriend and we never did find a better view than that at Casa Maravillosa. Some specific highlights of our stay were the morning sights (and sounds) of monkeys going from tree to tree directly in front of the house, the constant daytime breeze and, of course, the evening sunsets. My favorite part of each day was prepping a nice dinner just in time to pour a glass of wine, stop everything, go outside to the balcony and watch the most perfect sunset with my man. Once then sun went down, we’d finish preparing dinner together (a very spacious kitchen allows for a great cooking experience for couples, friends and families alike), and spend our evenings appreciating the great local seafood, vegetables and fresh fruit while enjoying peace and quiet along with the sounds of nature. I also loved my daily laps in the pool, which was always impeccably clean, and then rinsing off at the outdoor shower! We’d often also swim at night, which was so fun with all the outdoor lights surrounding the pool. This place (I can only imagine) is great for large groups as there’s a main house AND two separate casitas with kitchens + bathrooms in each. But it also proved to be the perfect fit for just one couple or a small family, as the main house is so cozy and comfortable. It was our first trip to Nosara and we absolutely loved the small town and the quiet beaches. There’s so many outdoor activities (surfing, zip lining, hiking and swimming to name a few) as well as great restaurants and bars (La Luna was a particular favorite) all within a few minute drive from the house. I’d recommend this casa to anyone interested in visiting Nosara. It’s hands-down one of the best places I’ve ever stayed at and can’t wait to go back!
