The house has two bedrooms and two bathrooms on the main floor, separated by a large living room, kitchen, and office open space. Downstairs, with a separate entrance, a third bathroom with private bathroom will allow you to have more guests.
The master bedroom has a king bed, plenty of closet space and large bathroom, with tub and shower, decorated with blue tiles and accessories that will create an oriental ambiance. There is a view on the tropical gardens, the surrounding forest, and the pool. The guest room has two full-size beds, and a futon bed, able to sleep 4 to 6 children or 3 adults. Also with ocean view and jungle view, it has its private bathroom with ocean view! The third room downstairs is completely independent from the main house, with private entrance, and has a king bed and its own bathroom.
The house is surrounded with a wrap-around terrace, allowing ocean view or jungle view, depending on your mood, and with plenty of lounging furniture and tables. Sunsets are amazing from the terrace!!! The large pool has plenty of lounge chairs and sofa to relax and enjoy the sun. An enormous mango tree will allow you to watch the monkeys hanging out or enjoying the juicy fruits. There is a gated entrance, ensuring better security of the property.
A small guest house is located next to the gate, and is rented long term, but does not interfere at all with the privacy of the main house, this one being located on a small hill above and away from the guest house. Tenants of the guests house are not allowed to use the pool or be on the grounds around the main house. The only thing shared between the two properties is the main entrance gate.
For more security, the main house is equipped with an alarm and a large safe. Wireless internet will allow you to stay in touch with home, while enjoying the relaxing atmosphere of this beautiful property. The beach of Guiones is at a 15-minute walk and so are many amenities such as grocery store, surf shops, medical center, bank, souvenirs store, restaurants and night life.

We had a phenomenal stay at Peace Retreat, and it absolutely lived up to its name. It definitely lived up to the photos we saw beforehand online. The house is spacious, beautiful, full of light and many comfortable corners to relax in. One of the highlights is the wraparound porch with a gorgeous ocean view. The pool is fantastic, and we spent many happy hours relaxing there while monkeys played in the trees overhead. It's a great space for groups and entertaining, with three bedrooms and a large kitchen, with lots of space for people to spread out. The house also felt very secure and safe, with an alarm system and a gated driveway, and its location was very walkable to the beach and town. Agnes, the property manager, was wonderful -- she was very communicative, and also gave us great recommendations for how to spend our time in Nosara.

we loved this house, the view is stunning, it's an elegant, airy, stylish house. Pool is great, bathrooms amazing, big open kitchen. the only reason i gave it 4 instead of 5 stars is b/c it's a little rough around the edges - BBQ kind of dirty and somewhat non-working (we didn't even attempt), not all lights work, not all window hooks and locks are in place - massive gorgeous bathtub can't be plugged (?!?) - but all minor issues.
we would definitely return to this house - really one of the loveliest houses i've ever rented.
In terms of service - we found agnes wonderful to work with - very easy going - all the pre-trip information was very helpful, doing the agreement/deposit went smoothly (though pay pal would be much better and easier than wiring!) but her assistant (no longer her asst.) was less helpful - that's the only reason we put 3 stars for service.
we hope to return - i cried the night before we left - it was amazing! and we recommend Nosara Tico Surf School - great instructors.

We loved the house, the sunsets,the pool, the monkeys. Unfortunately the noise from Bananas bar makes it impossible to sleep'
. The bedrooms need aC units and thicker windows to block out the noise.
We would never stay here again unless the noise issue is addressed. Also, the kitchen needs some updating. We were not happy with the danger of turning the propane tank off and on so we could cook. In the us, safety regulations would never allow the tank to be right next to the stove. Paint the cupboards (in the bathrooms too)
