This sunny, Playa Pelada house has sweeping jungle and mountain views off the back deck, as well as ocean views from the covered front patio. The beach, tide pools and snorkeling are an easy walk away. Nosara restaurants, bars, yoga studios, shops, etc. are within a 10-minute drive. With high, native wood ceilings and an open floor plan, this spacious, two-bedroom house is good for couples, families (with kids) and groups of friends.
This quiet, open house is located on a hill above Playa Pelada, near the mouth of the Nosara River. It has a large, tiled back deck overlooking the grounds, with expansive views of the jungle and mountains. Sunrise is amazing here! Monkeys cross the canopy just a few feet away. The covered front patio is also very large and has views of the Pacific and the headland separating Playa Pelada from Playa Guiones, the main surfing beach in Nosara. Shady grounds with view benches and flowering trees surround the house and afford a different perspective on the nature preserve and mountains that comprise the incredible view.
The house itself is wide open, bright and airy. There is a large dining room table that sits up to 10 people and looks out over the front patio. The modern kitchen has granite countertops, a five-burner gas cooktop set into the central island, a large fridge and lots of extras, including a coffee maker, blender, toaster and toaster oven. There's tons of cabinet and countertop space, as well as a Guanacaste hardwood bar. The sink overlooks the bar and the expansive windows in the back of the house, so you can do dishes with a view! All the utensils and cooking supplies you'll need--including tupperware, a lobster pot, etc.--are here for you to use.
The main living space consists of three areas: a central sitting area around a coffee table; a TV room with a couch, coffee table and ottomans; and a yoga room with a large sofa/futon for reading, a basket full of yoga mats and space to get in a workout if you're so inclined (or do it on the deck!). The three living spaces feel unique and separate, but also open onto each other, creating a very fluid and open feel.
The house has two spacious bedrooms with high, native-wood ceilings. The master bedroom has a king bed, as well as two single beds that can be rolled out from underneath the king. The master bathroom has two sinks and a large shower with plenty of pressure and hot water. The second bedroom has two double beds and a bathroom with a large shower. Both bedrooms have side tables, large four-drawer dressers and an area to hang your clothes and keep your shoes. There's plenty of clothes storage for a long vacation. Air conditioning is available in the bedrooms for an extra fee (this is common in Nosara, as electricity is very expensive), but you don't really need it. With the windows open, the ceiling fan on and the breeze off the mountains, nights tend to be comfortable and cool.
Overall, the house has a bright, open, friendly feel and is very comfortable and spacious. We think you'll like it here!
Extra guests (above and beyond five) can be accommodated for an extra fee. Please inquire.
Serveis i zones comuns
The entire main floor of the house is accessible to guests, as are the patios and surrounding grounds. Please note that there is a small apartment beneath the main house that may also be rented.

Interacció amb els hostes
Our property manager is available for any help you might need. Please contact the house manager (EMAIL HIDDEN) with your estimated arrival time information two weeks prior to your arrival. At this time you will be given information on key pick-up. Check in is between the hours of 2pm-7pm and check out is on or before 10am. For extended check-in/check-out hours between 7pm and 10pm, arrangements must be made with the house management a minimum of 48 hours in advance of the time needed.

Altres aspectes destacables
The house is on the edge of the jungle, so insects and wildlife are common. If you embrace them as an integral part of your stay, you will have an easier time adjusting. Any piles of clothing, shoes, etc. left on the floor are likely to attract insects and maybe even scorpions. Have a neat, orderly stay and you'll be less likely to experience this. Please don't feed any wild animals off the deck or anywhere on the grounds.
This is Costa Rica and it's widely known and accepted that things rarely go to plan here (this is also part of the magic!). Electrical failures are common. The internet router gets fried by lightning sometimes. Things break or stop working, especially electronics and appliances. Come with an attitude of benevolent acceptance and you will have an awesome time. Come expecting first-world comforts, amenities and infrastructure, and you probably won't. Pura Vida!
Electricity is super expensive and water is in short supply in the Nosara area; therefore, we ask that guests keep the lights off when they're not needed and conserve water as often as possible. Please don't take endless showers or leave lights on in rooms that aren't immediately occupied.
Use of the bedroom air conditioners incurs an extra expense of $100 per week or $15 per night. If you opt to use the air conditioners, please only run them when somebody is in the room. They cool the bedrooms off very quickly, so there is no reason to leave them running when you are not in there.
We also ask that you leave your wet towels, clothes, etc. in the laundry room or outside, as insects are attracted to anything damp that you leave on the floor of the house. Also please leave your shoes, flip-flops, etc. outside so the floors stay clean during your stay.
