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.
Additional amenities include: board games, beach towels, 24 hour on call maintenance, ceiling fans in every room, washer/dryer, gated parking, chef on request, security bars on doors and windows, balcony over large garden, night life, a/c in every room at extra cost, a/c optional, suitable for teenage children or older, outside shower, weekly housekeeping included, salt-water pool, mini-fridge, daily housekeeping, apple TV, house linens provided, safe comptible for laptop, coffeemaker....Read more

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.

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!

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.

Nous avons quitté le froid Québécois pour 3 semaines à Vista Hermosa. Nous connaissions déjà Nosara mais avons découvert et adoré cette maison; très belle, propre avec un merveilleux patio où il fait bon vivre, cuisiner, lire, se bercer dans le hamac, nager. Une critique précédente parlait de bruit sur la route alors qu'il doit y avoir au total 10 voitures par jour qui passe. La tranquillité avec la vue sur la forêt et les montages font de cet espace un réel havre de paix.
Le confort de cette maison était tel qu'il fallait trouver la motivation de se rendre à 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 forçant la note, j'ajouterais un hamac question de limiter les tensions sociales mais bon votre famille est peut-être mieux élevée 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.
