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.

The space

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.

Guest access

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.

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 had a lovely stay at Donald's place. The apartment is in a great location for anyone interested in exploring the Playa Guiones section of Nosara. The kitchen is very well supplied, and the terrace hammock is a lovely place to watch the rain and listen to the surrounding jungle.

Donald is a great host. Not only does he help you with everything you need, but is also a great person to be around. We enjoyed the stay at Donald's apartment and will definitely come back when our path leads us to Nosara again.

This house is amazing! The location is perfect: secluded yet, just a quick walk to the beach and restaurants. Donald is a great host: very quick to answer. The house is very clean and the area is safe. Many amenities: washer, dryer, refrigerator, dishwasher, and a well equipped kitchen. I am definitely planning on going back!

The house is positioned well away from the street, which mitigates noise and dust. This is important when considering the unpaved Costa Rican roads. The property is well-situated, five minutes to the shops and seven minutes to the beach, yet tucked nicely into a quiet residential area. Donald was a very attentive host. The air-conditioning, like all other electronic equipment in the country, fell prey to the climate and sporadic electrical failures and surges, and Donald had it fixed inside of an afternoon. It worked perfectly for the remainder of our stay. It is important to note that water and power outages are common during certain seasons but the property is equipped with a reserve tank which comes in quite handy. Internet was strong despite wind and weather. (In other parts of Costa Rica, the winds are blamed for connectivity problems). My wife is incredibly allergic to mould. She did not have any problems at Donald's. It was very clean. Things to note: washer/dryer, private parking for 2 cars, fully-equipped kitchen designed by a former chef, great water pressure when the municipality has it on (usually 16 hours of the day in the depths of dry season), and an amazing host who is incredibly generous with his knowledge of the area, and opens the main house to anyone who wants to chat or share some dry white wine. Final detail: the rental property is nestled behind the main house. They are separated by a garden path and a sloping driveway. Thank you again Donald for a wonderful experience.

After reading all of the glowing reviews my expectations were set pretty high! Donald, the host, was gone for the first few days of our trip and his assistant didn't offer much help when we stated our a/c, wifi, and water were all not working. They ended up working, but sporadically throughout the rest of the trip. Communication could've been better, perhaps preparing us beforehand that these things weren't working, or when we could expect them to be fixed. We weren't expecting a 5 star resort, and costa rica moves slower, but a little more attention to cleanliness (our sheets had paint all over them and an ant problem in the kitchen) and communication would've gone a long way. That being said, the location was great, and Donald was very nice when we had a chance to speak to him. I still would recommend this place and feel it would be better with Donald managing it.
