Description from owner


This charming bungalow is ideal for Honeymooners or couples who love to live close to nature. This tranquil, peaceful and romantic place is nestled in the midst of nature , yet only a few minutes away from restaurants, grocery stores and tourist activities in Nosara (Guiones). The beach of Garza is only 3 minutes away and the famous surf beach of Guiones can be reached in less the 15 minutes.

La Casita is surrounded by lush tropical gardens and a secondary jungle. It is secluded yet in a safe and elegant neighbourhood. You can relax in the hammock and enjoy the parrots flying above you or watch the howler monkeys which often come close to the house.

On the ground floor there is a cosy living room with a sofa bed, a fully equipped kitchen with a gas stove, fridge, microwave, breakfast table and a full bathroom. Therefrom you step out to a large pergola with table and hammock. On the second floor there is the romantic master bedroom wiith views to the jungle and palm trees.
