About this listing
The Finca Austria ist situated at the River Nosara, 6 km off the beach. You can combine here western standard accomodation with jungle feeling.
We recommend a 4 wheel drive car for exploring the surrounding.
The house offers a kitchen and a bathroom and 3 seperated bedrooms as well as a Rancho outside from there you can perfectly enjoy the view on the River Nosara and watch the animals and birds.
In the rainy season, with some luck, you might get a glimpse of a small crocodile taking a sunbath on the river shore.

we take the Costa Rican way, whatever is working best!
Chris who greeted us was very pleasant. That said we were not overly happy with our stay. In the jungle was a little misleading as the area nearby has a number of other house and a football pitch. The pool is tiny. The kitchen was poorly equipped, and a number of things were not working properly., There was no air conditioning - we have lived without air conditioning in hot countries without problem, but the house needs to be built to designed with that in mind. This house was not! We did not manage any sleep at all during the two days we stayed, so we left a day early and rented elsewhere.
we will check and improve the kitchen and are sorry that things were not working properly. We as a family stayed many times at the Jungle Lodge and fortunately never experienced such a bad night - we always enjoyed not needing any air condition. Therfore we also offer the house without any airconditioning. It seems that you had a really hot night when visiting.
Sitting at our wodden rancho above river Nosara gave to all other guests and ourselves a very nice jungle feeling - from there you can only see nature... you might have a differnt way of experience things. Also many other people enjoy the pool, the football and the tennis pitch - we also love to have them over there.
The house was as beautiful as it was on the pics, Kristob is awesome great host and super friendly. He even help us on new years eve that we left the keys inside.
We had a blast, you just have to consider to use a 4x4 car since the roads in Nosara are difficult.
The place is very beautiful, with a breathtaking view of the Nosara River and its surrounding forest.
It is for those who really want to be close to nature and far from civilization.
The access is difficult, either possible by crossing a river in the dry season or through a long dirt road. Either way you will definitely need a 4x4 as the road is bumpy and rocky.
You will see and hear howling monkeys and possibly other animals typical of Costa Rica. Unfortunately, where we found issues was in the appliances (the oven originally didn't work, no microwave and no A/C) and in the service (maids came only once during the week instead of every 2 days like promised).
However, if you are looking forward to being away from civilization the Finca Austria is a lovely option.
Our stay at Finca Austria with our family was perfect. The property manager met us in Nosara upon arrival to ensure that we had no problem finding the cottage. The stunning and secluded property provided an excellent opportunity for us to relax and unwind just outside of the village. If you are looking for a place to get away from busy life and enjoy the sites and sounds of the jungle, Finca Austria is just the place.

About the Host, Finca Austria
The Finca Austria is a 60 ha big landscape, which is hidden beside the Nosara river 6 km off the beach.
There are two parts of the finca, the flat part, we call it "Riverside", where you can find the houses "Mango Cottage" and the "Jungle Lodge" and our "Oceanview" up the hill with the villas "Casa Colibri" and "Villa Mariposa".
The Finca Austria can be used for example for family reunions, training camps, sport events, meeting friends and nature lovers. There is really enough space and you can watch animals and birds without walking too much.
Our soccerfield, tenniscourt and running lap is in good condition.
You will meet here nature accomanied with western standard abroad from the dust near the coast.
When you come here the first time, you will be surprised by the road, our short cut leads through the river during dry season. We recommend a 4 wheel drive to explore the surrounded nature.
