About this listing
Casa Raz is a unique property centrally located with a private jungle setting. Steps from restaurants, shops and only a 3 min walk to Playa Guiones (best surf), our home is perfect for couple(s) and small families. Live the pura vida in this special spot!
[NOTE: There are cheaper places to stay but you'll be in a crowded, noisy area or far from the beach. This is a one-of-a-kind place for a special holiday experience]
Our family has been traveling to Nosara for 20+ years. We came upon this special location and built our dream vacation home. We love to share it with others who will nurture and enjoy it as we do.
Please enjoy all features of the home including the laundry in the bodega, outdoor shower, full kitchen, hammocks.
Interaction with guests
Our very good friend Marq lives in Nosara with his family and will ensure a smooth check in/out. He's got a wealth of local knowledge and great recommendations for surf rentals and lessons, excursions, dining, babysitters, etc.
Nosara is a quaint beach town that draws travelers from around the world. Restaurants range from the traditional Costa Rican fare to upscale seafood and tapas. World class surfing, yoga for all ages and skill sets, ziplining, amazing wildlife - all within this very small town.

Two great day trips we recommend:

Walk! Walk! Walk!

- Car (several rental agencies in town: National, Economy, Alamo)
Other things to note
Looking for a pool? We opted for jungle surroundings instead of a pool on the property, but here's a tip .... several local restaurants allow you to swim in their pool if you dine there! Try Gilded Iguana, Olas Verdes hotel restaurant, Harbor Reef.
