Located in the famed Huacas section of Nosara, Casa Vista hermosa is not your 'average' vacation rental. It is a heaven of piece and privacy surrounded on three sides by a wildlife refuge. It offers great valley views and a smaller ocean view to the north.

Once you pass through the gate and drive down a short driveway, you will enter the house by a large wooden door and will be greeted by a feeling of spaciousness. Going down a flight of stairs, you will be in a large open room with high ceilings. The kitchen is well equipped with granite counter tops and plenty of space to cook up a feast. There are two seating areas offering comfortable chairs, sofa and a flat screen TV. The kitchen and living area opens up to the outside patio and swim up pool. There is actually a bar linking the kitchen and patio for delivering fresh food and drinks to everyone outside. Dine al fresco on a large table for gourmet meals, playing cards, or various games or just enjoy the cool breezes. 

The master bedroom offers the best ocean views to the north. It is located up a small staircase to the right of the front door and has a king bed, plenty of storage, a large bathroom with double vanity and walk-in shower. Sliding doors open to a balcony overlooking the jungle and a view of Ostional beach. Imagine falling asleep with the rise of the full moon and waking up with the rising sun!

The guest bedroom is downstairs at the living room level, and has two twin beds that can be made into a king bed, a bathroom with shower and sink, and a separate toilet that also can be accessed by the pool terrace. Patio doors open up to the garden and pool terrace.

Hi-speed wireless internet, salt-water infinity pool with submerged bar stools, hammock and patio furniture will all help you have a wonderful stay in Costa Rica, while surf, yoga and restaurants are only a 5-minute drive away in Guiones! 

The positioning of this house is such that you enjoy sunrises coming over the mountains and cooler temperatures throughout the afternoon. Air conditioning is available at $100/week but rarely needed or requested.

Best part of our month long visit to Costa Rica
Posted on: 7/30/2015
I have a family of 4 with two small children, and we had the most amazing time at this house. For the first part of our trip, we were close to Playa Guiones, however this property's location was even better. It was necessary to have a vehicle to get there, but the views are truly breathtaking. We had a wonderful time playing in the beautiful pool, and cooking in the fully equipped kitchen. The property managers were professional and helpful. They also went out their way to arrange for a couple to come to the house to make us dinner. They made delicious sushi, and we sat outside surrounded by monkeys and a beautiful jungle. it was our favorite night in Costa Rica. I truly would have been happy to stay at this property for our entire Costa Rican adventure. Thank you to the managers and owners for having a welcoming home and making our stay one to remember.

Amazing place, location & service!!
Posted on: 7/9/2015
Our experience was nothing short of amazing! We were two couples (first time to Costa Rica) who stayed for one week. The house is very beautiful & clean & the view is gorgeous! The house was everything as advertised. Everyday we started and finished the day outside on the patio and in the beautiful infinity pool. We were very impressed at the availability of towels, books, kitchen utensils, pots/pans, dishes & various cooking ingredients for our use. We were also impressed with the maid service (once-mid week), gardening & pool cleaning service as it showed that we were staying in a house that was very well cared for. The security gate in the driveway and gates on the doors gave us comfort that our belongings and ourselves were safe at all times. The location was perfect. We enjoyed the beautiful jungle view and sound of the howler monkeys everyday. Two of the days we were fortunate enough to have a family of howler monkeys present in the trees beside the driveway, which provided us with great entertainment! We loved the close proximity to Playa Guiones, Pelada and Nosara town and all the activities (yoga, ziplining, surfing, wildlife refuge, etc.) around. However, what I would like to comment on the most was the communication and service from Virginie & Ivan (the property managers - Mango Property Management). From the minute we said we wanted to book, the communication was excellent. Each time I reached out to Virginie & Ivan by email or phone, their response to me was received quickly and clearly. Upon our arrival, Virginie met us as soon as we arrived in Guiones. She did a walk through with us, explaining all the amenities and even showed us the binder that was put together with all the activities, restaurants, contact info, etc. She told us that if we needed anything or wanted to book activities to give her a call using the house phone. We experienced a few unexpected and highly unusual situations during our stay but Virginie & Ivan went above & beyond expectations to make our stay very enjoyable. A few days into our stay lightning hit the house and fried the internet and disabled the security gate. We were unable to drive the vehicle out of the driveway; however, within 2 hours Ivan had someone out to look at the gate and provided us with the gate key so we could at least open the gate manually. We were very impressed with his service and quick action to the situation. Overall our experience was very positive & memorable. We definitely recommend Vista Hermosa and Mango Property Management!

If you're looking for a beautiful and serene place to relax pool side, and enjoy the mountains (and monkeys) of Nosara, this is a great place to stay. This home is beautiful both inside and out. With two nice bedrooms and lots of living space inside and out its just lovely (may not be ideal for little-little kids/toddlers though). Its got an amazing view and is very private feeling. Just ask for the gardener, etc. to not come around and you could feel like you're all alone in the jungle - very romantic. Its a bit of a way out of town so you'll need to stock up at the Super Nosara down the main road for some food, and a rental car is a must. There is not sign outside of the house visible from the road (yet) so it may be hard to find for taxis, car rental drop offs, etc. but the local property managers are wonderful! Use their support and help - they really love to help and are great. The house has every kitchen item you'd want and a lovely space to cook in. There is even a blow dryer for us ladies who want to look nice (but the town is so casual you don't need to dress up to go for dinner). Clean, beautiful, modern and open feeling - I'd go back! Allison - stayed at property august 2013.

Nous avons quitt le froid Qubcois pour 3 semaines Vista Hermosa. Nous connaissions dj Nosara mais avons dcouvert et ador cette maison; trs belle, propre avec un merveilleux patio o il fait bon vivre, cuisiner, lire, se bercer dans le hamac, nager. Une critique prcdente parlait de bruit sur la route alors qu'il doit y avoir au total 10 voitures par jour qui passe. La tranquillit avec la vue sur la fort et les montages font de cet espace un rel havre de paix. Le confort de cette maison tait tel qu'il fallait trouver la motivation de se rendre la plage (5 minutes en voiture)! Je vous souhaite de vous laisser bercer dans ce lieu paradisiaque d'ici peu. Si conseil je devais donner, en forant la note, j'ajouterais un hamac question de limiter les tensions sociales mais bon votre famille est peut-tre mieux leve que la mienne ;) *** Perfect place. We have come from Montreal for 3 weeks, very quiet, no neighbors, monkeys, birds and coaties came to visit us daily. Clean place, wonderful pool, hard to go to the beach when you can stay in such a nice and peaceful place.

What you see is what you get; a wonderful, modern and private ho
Posted on: 11/11/2014
Casa Vista Hermosa; wonderful, private home in Nosara. Amenities; lacking for nothing. The knife, the blender or the aC, it's all there. The home is laid out extremely well. Out back you spend all your time at the pool and sitting area, the view is wonderful across the valley and out towards the mountains. The panoramic landscape is extremely private. Some noise behind you as the road gets some traffic. Not major, but it's the main access up a large hill to the homes in this area. Not terrible, but it's not 100% quiet either. On the other hand, neither are the howler monkeys which wake you every morning. We love that noise! The entire home and property are kept extremely well, Pool and sitting area are wonderful with an outside shower. Beach is 5 minute drive. If you know the right parking area, it's wide, long, clean with few people on it! The maint. people were quiet and respectful. Hint to the owners; would recommend at least a couple of chaise lounges to lay out at the pool, there were 4 chairs with 2 ottomans, but chaise lounges were sorely missed. The pool is a bit colder than what you might expect as it doesn't get quite enough sun . There are locking steel gates on the windows and doors that do not take away from the look of the home, but for those looking for extra security, that and the alarm system affords you that additional security. Had zero problems. Had one issue with front gate. Agnes and Jo were on top of it, w/Jo made sure work was done promptly and correctly. Hats off to their quick response. It tells you a bit about how they take care of business and their customers. We viewed the house initially on FlipKey, and simply put, what you see "is" what you get; a really well kept, modern, private home w/all the bells and whistles in a delightful area of Nosara. Nosara is a good mix of young and old. not a backpackers haven or suited only for surfers which we very much appreciated.

Made our 3rd annaul trip to Nosara in mid-March. Have stayed in 3 different homes and this was by far, the best one yet! All had good aspects but this home is extremely well-cared for, well-equipped and well-appointed. We are veteran home renters and it's noticed when a home has everything it needs and doesn't feel like a rental. Pots & pans match, the dishes are an actual set, not castoffs, and so forth. Master bed & bath were very comfortable. I loved the walk in shower. Kitchen is gorgeous and the outside area is very comfortable and private. Pool area has hammock, adirondack chairs and two loungers that can moved for sun or shade. The cleaning person came twice during our two week stay, she was very unobtrusive and does a great job. Gardener and pool service also come on a regular basis and again, unobtrusive. Agnes and Jo from Mango Property Mgmt. checked on us a couple of times; we're pretty self-sufficient so had no concerns but they answered a few questions for us about the area, etc. View from the home over the valley is fantasic. You don't get a direct sunset but the clouds turn gorgeous shades of red & orange. Full moon while we were there and that was gorgeous as well. A little bit of monkey activity and several pisote sightings. House is very secure, with a remote controlled gate, home alarm system, iron gates and bars on sliding doors. Initially it was a bit of a production to lock & unlock but I appreciate the security. Only challenge we had was with the new apple TV the owners just set up. Internet speed wasn't quick enough to download a movie but I think there may be a setting to correct. We really didn't need to watch TV anyway - nicer to sit outside and enjoy the breeze. All in all, a perfect property and we would love to stay there again! When asked if I would recommend property for older travelers/people with disabilities, I said no b/c of the stairs up to master bedroom and down to main living area.

Just returned yesterday from a two week stay at Vista Hermosa in Nosara. This is our 3rd March vacation to the area and our 3rd different rental property. While the homes we stayed in previously each offered their own positive traits, this was the best one we've stayed in, hands down. We are experienced renters - having rented houses in many places around the US, the Bahamas and here in CR. This house was perfect - it's well thought out, well-designed, very attractively appointed and immaculate! Everything works, which sometimes can be rare in rentals. We enjoy doing some cooking when we rent and the kitchen had everything we needed but not duplicates of everything, e.g. 10 mismatched pots & pans. You can tell that both the owners as well as Jo & Agnes from Mango Property Mgmt. are on top of things. It was just my husband and I in the house so the size was perfect for us. We loved the pool & deck area. At first we agreed with another reviewer and thought the pool might be chilly but they had had several days of strong winds and we thought that may have cooled off the water. As our stay went on, we found this to be accurate and the pool warmed up nicely. There are two sets of adirondack chairs by the deck and two loungers, as well as a hammock so plenty of options for sun/shade exposure. The master bedroom was very comfortable and the bathroom was spacious and well laid out. I love the walk in shower! The house is very secure, with a remote controlled gate, security alarm, gates/bars on all doors & windows. Initially it seemed a bit tedious to lock & unlock everything but I do appreciate the security. We had no instances where we felt nervous and the area is patrolled by a private security company overnight which is an added comfort. If I had to find one flaw, it was specific to the new Apple TV the owners put in. I was successful in entering my itunes account & password and purchasing a movie; but the internet speed was very slow and the movie took upwards of 8 hours to download. Needless to say, we didn't end up watching it. I think there may be a way to correct this within the settings but at that point, it was too late. The music option worked great though and we quickly decided it was nicer to sit by the pool, enjoy the view and have a beverage rather than try and watch Tv. This is minor so don't let it deter you. Found working with Jo & Agnes with Mango Property Mgmt. to be a true pleasure - they are very professional and personable. Totally on top of things. All said - assuming the owners still choose to rent out their house (and I would not blame them if they didn't and decided to stay in it all winter!), we will very likely rent Vista Hermosa again next year.

Quiet and beautiful

My husband and I stayed here in May, 2014. We have been to Nosara at least 12 different times, always staying down by the beach. Staying up on the hill, and in particular this house, was beautiful and so peaceful. The home is situated to enjoy the view and serenity of the jungles of Nosara along with the Howler Monkeys. Its open floor plan, infinity pool and privacy make it a wonderful escape. The drive to the beach is a few minutes and the Nosara beaches are magnificent. The beaches are perfect for walking or surfing.

Indeed a Vista MUY Hermosa here!
Posted on: 12/12/2014
The view from the house is priceless. The property management staff always accessible, the howler monkeys dangled close enough to throw a banana at them (but we didn't), and wildlife all around. My favorite was hearing the call of the geckos at night (the female makes this kissy smooching noise, about 5-6 times in a row). We never got tired of sitting outside because in my opinion, there was a lot more dimension to this view than the water. It changes every time. Sometimes you look and realize there were some trees you never noticed before because now there's a monkey on it and you just saw it for the first time. The decor is personal yet approachable. The extra large cushions in the living room by the TV were perfect for movie night. The couch was also comfortable, and everything was maintained meticulously. In the cupboard we found soy sauce (perfect for Chinese people who love to cook) and cayenne pepper (perfect for people who love to cook spicy food). We also found complete sets of cups, utensils, cookware, and dishes / bowls. Home away from home indeed. The was also access to HULU and Netflix, which we enjoyed using on movie night, and it rained a little when we were there, so we were grateful for the ability to plug in. I also helped myself to the yoga mats (hope this was OK!). I was so grateful they were there, since i do yoga 3-4 times / week. The book explained everything, and I wish I had looked at that before googling everything. Contacts, activities, restaurants, everything close by. Not sure if this was done on the suggestion of Mange Property Management or the owners but the book was VERY informational. You hardly had to think. I would rent this house again and again, and I would entrust my own home to Mango Property Management. Marine from Mango was the most caring, considerate, thoughtful, helpful person while we were there! Thank you Kathy, Marine, and Agnes for a WONDERFUL vacation home.

Si conseil je devais donner, en forant la note, j'ajouterais un hamac question de limiter les tensions sociales mais bon votre famille est peut-tre mieux leve que la mienne ;) *** Perfect place. We have come from Montreal for 3 weeks, very quiet, no neighbors, monkeys, birds and coaties came to visit us daily. Clean place, wonderful pool, hard to go to the beach when you can stay in such a nice and peaceful place.

Casa Vista Hermosa; wonderful, private home in Nosara. Amenities; lacking for nothing. The knife, the blender or the aC, it's all there. The home is laid out extremely well. Out back you spend all your time at the pool and sitting area, the view is wonderful across the valley and out towards the mountains. The panoramic landscape is extremely private. Some noise behind you as the road gets some traffic. Not major, but it's the main access up a large hill to the homes in this area. Not terrible, but it's not 100% quiet either. On the other hand, neither are the howler monkeys which wake you every morning. We love that noise! The entire home and property are kept extremely well, Pool and sitting area are wonderful with an outside shower. Beach is 5 minute drive. If you know the right parking area, it's wide, long, clean with few people on it! The maint. people were quiet and respectful. Hint to the owners; would recommend at least a couple of chaise lounges to lay out at the pool, there were 4 chairs with 2 ottomans, but chaise lounges were sorely missed. The pool is a bit colder than what you might expect as it doesn't get quite enough sun . There are locking steel gates on the windows and doors that do not take away from the look of the home, but for those looking for extra security, that and the alarm system affords you that additional security. Had zero problems. Had one issue with front gate. Agnes and Jo were on top of it, w/Jo made sure work was done promptly and correctly. Hats off to their quick response. It tells you a bit about how they take care of business and their customers. We viewed the house initially on FlipKey, and simply put, what you see "is" what you get; a really well kept, modern, private home w/all the bells and whistles in a delightful area of Nosara. Nosara is a good mix of young and old. not a backpackers haven or suited only for surfers which we very much appreciated.
