Aqua Viva Hotel
Aqua Viva Hotel
Nice location for nature’s lovers… only a couple of minute walk from the mouth of the river Nosara for fishing and wildlife watching. It is part of the Nosara Refuge and a 4-minute walk to the pristine beach of Pelada through a jungle trail.
Enter through the gates onto the poolside patio and prepare to fall in love with panoramic, white water ocean views, complete privacy in a tropical setting. Enjoy your privacy in a home featuring three master suites across three levels and three buildings and the additional kids bunk room with double beds.
Casa Maravillosa boasts perhaps the best views in all of Nosara which can be admired from any number of outdoor living areas. Pour an evening cocktail and relax on our spacious wraparound patio and soak in sunset views across a 270 degree expanse of ocean, mountain and river valley. Perched 500 feet above Playa Guiones, Casa Maravillosa is located in the desirable Las Huacas (E section) just minutes from town and Playa Guiones. Our guests enjoy year round cooling breezes off of the ocean, perfect for our sun-filled Nosara days. Be restful and relaxed on your vacation in complete privacy – located at the end of a cul-de-sac, enjoy the serenity of 2.75 acres of unobstructed sweeping views.
Experience the real Costa Rica at this home designed by renowned architect ‘Olivier’ of Nosara, for Europeans. The simple lines, high ceilings, vented through breezeways, original Mexican tile floors and wood ceilings add to the feeling of high tropical design for mainly outdoor living. (And Now Eco- AC units are available in the bedrooms, for those warmer days) A huge rancho shades outside meals, yoga, exercise and ‘hanging out’, overlooking the pool. The mature luscious landscaping boasts many varieties of plants and trees- where exotic birds and troops of monkeys pass through, usually daily, as this property backs up to the Nature Reserve in Pelada. The property is so wholesome and complete that it is hard to leave it, even to walk to the beach, a block away. But the beach! One of the quietest, most beautiful in Costa Rica, one can walk down the beach at sunset, and perhaps see one other person. Walk the beach to La Luna restaurant, one of the best in town, by sunset, wine and dine, and walk back to the house by full moon!
Nearby Guiones can be accessed by continuing on the beach a further few minutes, and over the pathway. For exercisers and walkers, it is possible to have a cardio walk 2 hours there and back without ever leaving the water, at low tide.
Our housekeeper will have the house in tip top shape (ladies want to take my housekeeper home!) when you arrive, and then comes once a week to clean to give you optimum privacy. Clean towels are available and sheets upon request. The weekly maid will handle your small personal laundry when she comes, or laundry facilities are nearby for larger loads if desired. There is a 75- management and cleaning fee on top of all bookings for 1-2 weeks, 100- 3+ weeks. Upon renting, you will be informed as to the best local supermarkets to buy food, best local restaurants, and the most economical, high quality way to live. Outdoor activities are within walking distance – horse riding, kayaking, wild life refuge tour, river tours, bird watching, and a short drive (5 minutes) to the longest zip line in the country, surf school, and a world famous yoga center. For a bout of tech-withdrawal, the house has fast internet access and wi-fi. Casita Louisa is a haven for the simpler, creative and healthy type, (or one who would like to be) who sees life in an artistic and healthful way, and wants to truly escape from the mayhem of contemporary life for a while, without spending a fortune! Paintings, books, films and artwork inside the house, and nature abounding outside – a true getaway!
The beautiful and deserted beach of Pelada is located at only a short four-minute walk, through a great jungle trail, with the trail head just outside the house! And another 15-minute walk will take you to the surfers’ beach of Guiones.
Casa Nosara Functional Fitness is located in Playa Pelada, next to Playa Guiones, known to most of tourists as Nosara.
