About this listing
Full apartment, washer/dryer, 8 minute walk to Playa Guiones, quiet, safe spot surrounded by jungle and wildlife, 5 minute walk to restaurants and mini supermarket. Queen bed and an air mattress available.
This is a comfortable place in the heart of the Guiones beach settlement but nicely away from noise. Conveniences are within walking distance and it is a great place to have friends in for dinner.
All furnishings and spaces in the unit are available for use during your stay. This home has two units and the space below is occupied.
Interaction with Guests
The owner lives just up the hill with enough privacy between the two places while still close enough to get answers to questions and handle any unmet needs.
The breezes, sounds and smells off the ocean waves gave this house its name, Suspiros del Mar/Signs of the Sea. Neighbors are cordial and watch out for each other making it a safe place to stroll even late at night and early in the tropical mornings.
Most people who stay here walk everywhere since several restaurants and a small grocery are within 5 minutes distance, but local taxi's are available and three rental car agencies are also within walking distance if one needs to venture further afield.
Other Things to Note
This place has mostly been used for longer term rentals by yoga teachers and people doing long term academic papers in a natural environment that allows concentration without isolation.
We hope you won't feed the coatimundis or other wildlife that may be round. The monkey are not interested in people food and do not come down from the trees.
Donald's place was perfect for our last few days in Costa Rica. It is in a great position, just a short walk from the beach and from local restaurants. Nosara itself is really chilled out and beautiful - we wished we could have stayed longer.
The house looks just like the photos, with a well equipped kitchen with dishwasher, laundry facilities, wifi and a bed that we found really comfortable. The air-con in the bedroom was fantastic as well and we slept really well. Donald is a really lovely host - very relaxed and friendly. It's worth knowing that there are 4 dogs pottering around the property. They are really friendly and we loved them, but those who are not dog fans may feel differently.
Overall we had a really positive experience. We hope we'll be back one day!
We really enjoyed our week long stay here. My wife and I were looking for a place to settle into and cook our own meals and this home was perfect. It has a well supplied kitchen that is well laid out and beautiful bedroom. It also has great laundry facilities, which were a bonus when you are traveling for an extended period of time. The beach is a short walk (7-8 minutes) and the surf was stellar. We really could have settled in for much longer!
We had another excellent stay at Donald's in June. The arrival of the rainy season only added to the charm of his property, the jungle comes alive in front of your eyes with monkeys in the mango trees, birds and other wildlife. Look forward to another stay soon!
This home was just what we were hoping for. The previous, positive reviews were confirmed by our experiences. Donald was a great host, and his home allowed for us to really enjoy Nosara. Recommended!
Our stay at Donald's place was wonderful and the location couldn't have been better. We walked to yoga class, the beach and most of the restaurants. It is still nice to have a car if you want to adventure to different beaches or tour around. Donald happened to be out of town while we were visiting, but he insured that someone else met us to let us into his place and answer any questions that we had.
We had a fabulous visit at Donald's place. The apartment is very spacious, well designed and equipped. The veranda is ideal for viewing wildlife and very pleasant. Easy walking distance to surfing, organic market, restaurants and shops, no need for a car. Looking forward to another visit soon!
Awesome! Sweet place. Huge deck we did yoga on daily. Close enough to the beach and market. Super friendly couple of dogs too. They liked to come to the beach with us haha.
