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.

Wonderful place! Two single beds with two fans, kitchen, bathroom (big shower) and a nice patio. It is located on a small hill in pelada and its nice and quiet and so peaceful. The beach Pelada, a supermarket and a few restaurants are in walking distance (about 10 min). To guiones its about a 20-30 min walk depending how quick you walk. Jane was very helpful and friendly and responded in 10-15 min if i needed something. Great host and great house. Can only recommended and hope to stay there again. Thank you

I loved this little house on the hilltop - so cute, clean, peaceful and relaxing. Jane was a wonderful host and always responded to my inquiries in a timely manner. I would definitely rent there again.

Jane was super easy to talk to, resourceful, and communicative. The place is great, a little tucked away just up the hill from Playa Pelada, 5 mins in a car, 20 min walk. Get to know the cut through through trails through the forest connecting the town, very useful and much safer than walking on the street.

Jane is an incredibly organized and welcoming host. Communication was excellent during our stay. We hope that others will enjoy this well equipped, peaceful and safe apartment. Nosara Civic Association trails connect the property by jungle/nature trails to Guiones. The property is surrounded by verdant forest, allowing guests to observe a wide variety of birds, koatis, howler monkeys and other wildlife, all at one's doorstep. Recommend highly!

Having visited Nosara frequently over the last decade, we feel very fortunate to be staying now with Jane. The apartment is very well designed and furnished. The well equipped kitchen and short walking distance to shops, organic markets and fruit stands allow us to manage perfectly well without private transport. The neighbors have been friendly, helpful and fairly considerate about minimizing noise, respecting quiet times and privacy. Located on a breezy ridge, airflow is optimized in the open but screened space. There is a quiet, natural, ashramic ambiance of peace and tranquility (that is now lacking in the more populated areas of Guiones). A jungle/nature trail system now links this area to North Guiones. For North Guiones beach access or nature walks, this trail (15 min, around 1 mile) is a real treasure, offering shade, avoidance of road dust and abundant wildlife. We also highly recommend Jane's therapeutic fitness class just steps away.

Throughout our stay at Jane's place, she made us feel welcome and at home. She was incredibly responsive with tips, directions, and advice. We were arriving from Liberia on public transit, and she told us what to tell the bus driver so he'd stop right by the studio. Since we were visiting around New Year's, she also suggested some resources to help us find events! She even came by the studio for a chat and to offer some eggs from her chickens. I'd be amiss to recommend this place solely by virtue of the studio itself- Jane really made our stay worthwhile. All in all, we had a lovely stay in Playa Pelada. The studio is a 15 minute walk from the town/beach (though in hindsight, I recommend getting a rental car). We felt like we were basically in the wilderness, but with all the comforts of home (Jane has thought of it all!). You will be surrounded by the sounds and experiences of wildlife, giving what is likely a true Costa Rican experience.

Response from Jane:
Thank you Marissa for this great review ! Nosara area is kind of spread out, so having a vehicle of some kind does help to get around. Plus sight seeing is fun. Here you can get a car, a quad, a mountain bike, an electric bike or you can use the tuk tuk taxi service or go for a horseback ride !

Nosara, Costa RicaJoined in May 2015

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.
