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.
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!
From the moment we made our reservation, Donald was in touch with us whenever we needed him or had questions. He was extremely knowledgeable of the Nosara area as well as beaches and towns north and south of his residence. The property was gorgeous, the apartment itself was comfortable and was quite accessible even by foot to almost everything in the Playa Guiones area.
Wonderful, spacious place in a beautiful setting! Donald was a generous, friendly host who made our time very relaxing. The location is great - close to the beach and town.
We had a terrific visit in Donald's lovely house in Nosara. Donald was a truly wonderful host and we feel lucky to have gotten to know him. The house is right near everything (beach, stores, restaurants, bank) yet on a quiet side street that is peaceful and beautiful. The house was roomy for us, two adults and our six year old daughter. The kitchen had everything we needed and we did all our own cooking except for one lunch outing to Rosi's soda (delicious), which Donald suggested. The bed was comfy, the AC in the bedroom was lovely and appreciated. The large covered breezy balcony was where we hung out -- it was great! It looks right into the trees and we loved watching the daily passage of howler monkey groups right in front of us, a sweet coatimundi wandering around, the hummingbirds, parrots, huge blue butterflies, tiny lizards, geckos, and various beautiful birds. Yes, we love animals! Donald, who is a warm and welcoming host, lives in the house just by this one but not in easy visibility. He encouraged us to drop by anytime with questions or to just talk, both of which we did. He was a wealth of information about Nosara. Thank you, Donald, for a wonderful visit! We will come again!
Our stay in Nosara at Donald's house exceeded all of our expectations. Donald has the wonderful ability to bestow vast amounts of information via thoroughly enjoyable conversation. After our initial conversation and tour with him following our arrival it was obvious to us that 1) we were staying at an awesome place & 2) Donald was really awesome too. The apartment is very spacious and being able to relax everyday watching the wildlife from the balcony was pretty perfect. The place has a lot of privacy, but Donald is easily accessible and always willing to help as well. He could probably answer any question you had about Nosara and the surrounding areas, and I think he's been to 80+ countries so you could probably ask him questions about other places as well. If possible, we highly recommend hanging out with him.
