Interaction with guests
We try and provide our guests with everything they need, including a map of the area and recommendations for activities and restaurants. We live right next door and can be reached easily. However we do value our privacy, thus will also respect yours,and prefer to be sent an email or a text message when requesting some help.
Other things to note
You are coming to a jungle. Expect to see insects, including inside the apartment. They are not aggressive and not deadly. Gently remove them with a broom and if need be you can use the eco-friendly insecticide that we provide. The electricity sometimes goes off, and this is beyond our control. Adopt the pura vida attitude and use candles when this happens. There will be some water outages once in a while. You will find three or four gallons of drinkable water in the kitchen closet. We have holding tanks so can provide more water in case of a water outage. However please try and conserve water !
This is a quiet neighborhood and we wish it to remain so. We ask to respect neighbors by keeping quiet between 9:30pm and 7am. Also respect your neighbor's privacy and stick to your part of the house.
Keeping Nosara clean is important to us. We ask our guests to separate their trash. Water conservation is an issue as well. You will find some recommendations in our house manual. Finally turn off fans and lights when you do not need them. Be careful with your belongings. Do not leave your valuables in plain sight. Use the alarm system when leaving the house, even for a short period of time. Do not smoke inside the apartment.
Children and infants are welcome, however I do not provide cots, or other special equipment. These can be rented at a local business called Mermaids. This apartment is suitable for two people maximum, or two people with one small child. It will not be rented to larger parties.
I have been living in Nosara. Costa Rica since 1995. I was born and raised in French speaking Switzerland, have an English Dad and a Dutch Mom. I speak 5 languages fluently : French, English, Spanish, German and Dutch. I live right next door to the apartment that I rent, with my husband and two teenage children. I love living in Costa Rica and in particular in Nosara where nature abounds and where people are so friendly and welcoming. My wish is for people who come and visit that they appreciate this as much as I do. When I travel I look for authenticity. I prefer visiting less well traveled places and I love the opportunity to have contact with the local people.
