A five-minute walk brings you to the secluded Pelada Beach with fine white sand. The ocean is the centerpiece of life here. You can walk for miles along the quiet, unspoiled beaches of Nosara observing magical rock formations, breaking waves, and gentle tide pools.

We provide affordable earth friendly living with personalized service. Activities we offer include: turtle nesting, surfing and horseback riding, water sports, hiking trails, walk through the biological preserve, and zip line tour.

Our on-site jungle trail through the green zone to the beach allows you to explore the unspoiled wildness of this vibrant natural habitat.

Welcome! Thank you for being our guest at Nosara B&B Retreat. Here you will find tips
and tricks to make your stay comfortable and rewarding!

Our Natural Environment

We take pride in our focus on sustainability and love for our planet, and request the same of our guests.

We have separate garbage pails, composting and recycling bins for convenience of your disposables. Please put the proper trash in each receptacle, clearly marked: Garbage, Recyclables & Compost. Remember to be sure that the lids are securely on, so as not to attract insects or animals.

While we love the natural habitat surrounding us, please be aware of attracting animals with food. It is best to have things stored in the refrigerator, cupboards or in your rooms when possible.

Please be mindful of helping us conserve energy by turning off any lights, fans, etc when you are not using them, and when leaving your room. Keeping Our Accommodations Conscious

Let us know if you would like to help conserve water by re-hanging your room towels on the rack so you can use them again. If you would like them laundered, we will collect them from your bathroom floor. We have beach towels for sale for visiting the beach.

Our septic system is sensitive and we kindly request that you dispose of toilet paper or other materials in the bin located in your bathroom. We will clear this out daily.

Help keep the rooms clear of sand by using the outdoor showers to rinse off after returning from the beach.

Your Stay With Us

Parking is located mid-way up the driveway to the right.

Breakfast is available from 730am-830am. Please let us know about any food preferences, allergies or vegetarian, coffee, tea, etc.

Check in time is 2pm ~ Check out time is 11am

Recommended Safety Precautions

It gets quite dark by 6pm; it’s good to carry a flashlight to be on the lookout for animals and stay to paths. We have flashlights for sale in our store. Also, we recommend having a ‘buddy’ to walk with at night.

Since we are in a lush jungle setting, it’s a good idea to check & shake towels, clothes, shoes, and hammocks before using, just to be on the lookout for local inhabitants such as bugs, snakes, or scorpions. Generally these creatures stay away from humans, but it’s always a good idea to be aware of their existence in nature. Wear insect repellent when out and about.

Respect the sun! We are close to the equator, making the sun extremely strong in Costa Rica. Use sunblock and be especially careful between the peak hrs of 10am-3pm. It is best to gradually tan for that healthy tropical glow!

Stay hydrated! Drink lots of water!! It is safe from the tap, or we have filtered water available at the main house and at the pavilion.

Lock doors when you leave your room. Do not leave things unattended. For your convenience, we have a safe at reception where you can leave valuables. You are welcome to leave your key with us while you are out, as well.

Swimming - be careful of beach breaking waves during high tide & don’t swim past the breakers after high tide. To the left, down Playa Pelada, there is a wonderful spot to swim directly in front of Olga’s.

Other Amenities & Useful Info

Maps & local info are located in reception. Activities, such as horse back riding, ziplining and other adventures can be arranged for you. Please provide your request at least 24 hours in advance to ensure space.

Great spot and beautiful property. Short walk to the beach, about 10 minutes but the beach is amazing and the most beautiful sunset we had seen in Costa Rica.

The place is as described. If its first time you go in the area. I strongly recommend to arrive before dark. The road is in bad conditions, and surely you can miss the entrance to the place. As fr the stay, its very comfortable room. I believe there are 9 br in total. The breakfast was the best and the warmth of its local hosts. Yoga and surf lessons or rental of boards can be easily arranged. Overall, positive first experience in CR.

The staff was very friendly and welcoming. I especially enjoyed the lovely morning coffee with milk, smoothie, and fruit outside on the porch. I was there in the off season, so it was a bit buggy and rainy, which was to be expected. I was unable to explore too much, but it was the perfect place to relax and read a book while listening to the rain.

Wish we could have stayed longer! Also the smoothies in the morning were super yummy :) Thanks so much!!

We had an overall good stay at the Nosara retreat. The room was very spacious and clean. The shower has great pressure and even hot water which is uncommon to find in Guanacaste (unless you are staying in 5-star resorts). This Airbnb was run like a hotel. We were greeted by front-office staff who showed us around and told us everything about the retreat and had no interactions with Deborah herself. The only negative thing to mention about our stay was the fact that water was shut off during the night and even though we were warned about it when we checked in, it's not something that was disclosed in the Airbnb listing. Electricity also went out in the evening and was out all night, leaving us with no water, no light, no power to charge our electronics, and no wifi. We understand that it is a jungle and anything can happen, but when you pay $100+ a night, you do hope that the place you book will have the basic amenities, electricity and water being just some of them. We work remotely and need daily access to our emails and internet, which we couldn't have during our stay. This, unfortunately, hindered our ability to enjoy Nosara the following day. (We had to find a cafe with wifi and catch up on work that we weren't able to do in the evening in our hotel room) None of the staff came around and ever apologized for the inconvenience and offered us any candles or flashlights. The only mention of the power outage was in the morning when we were told that we won't be getting any freshly squeezed juice because there is no electricity. No one seemed to be all that apologetic.

This was my second time at Nosara Retreat -- and I'm so glad I came back. Deborah and all the staff are such warm, lovely, and creative people -- and together they've created such a special place. Playa Pelada is one of the most beautiful beaches I've ever been to and I sincerely hope I'll be back to Nosara Retreat on my next visit to Costa Rica (which will hopefully be in the not-so-distant future)!

Deborah User Profile

I came to Costa Rica in 1989 and fell in love with Playa Pelada, the people and the country. The houses we had built over the years served as a retreat for my extended family. For years, we all came together during the Christmas holidays. Inspired by the vibrant tropical colors and beauty of people and local scenes, I painted pictures for each room. In 1994 I started a B&B on the property and a year later, moved here permanently. My dream for many years was to have a healing center. Recently we began hosting retreats. It is my joy to share this healing paradise with you.
