vacation rental description

Hang Ten, Chill Out, Go Native, “Is that a real monkey?”

Casa de Memphis is located in the northern corner of Playa Pelada where the Ostional Wildlife Reserve meets the Pacific Ocean and your front door. While Casa de Memphis is very secluded, it is still convenient to shopping and the other amenities. If you do not mind a troop of monkeys living in the trees above and an array of birds not commonly found in a front yard, this is the place for you. (Some would refer to the location as “Critter Central”.) Beach, wildlife, peace and quiet, and no other people. (Just look over the photos and see for yourself.)

The whole beach is yours as you walk down the beach to one of the finest restaurants in the state of Guanacaste, La Luna. As you walk to La Luna, check out the tidal pools and the marine aquarium left by the tide. Every hour the beach area offers up a new setting as the tide comes in and out. Playa Pelada is the best place to swim of the three beaches in Nosara and kids can't get enough of the tidal pools.

This newly constructed, fully air conditioned beach house has two master bedrooms, each with its own massive bathroom, queen size bed, vaulted ceiling and private walkout balcony. The bigger of the two bedrooms has a bunk bed off to the side carved into its own area. The house is fully furnished and equipped for a party of 6. The houses sits behind a secure gated entrance at the end of the road with secure off street parking. No through traffic as you sit on the front porch and try and figure out what kind of humming bird that is. As of January 2009, the house has high speed, wireless internet.

Casa de Memphis is set up for the weekly renter. Very child friendly with a crib and high chair. (Because of the way the house is constructed it is hard for children to do any real damage, although some have tried.) High Speed Wireless Internet, linens, a full size safe for your valuables(large and small, i.e. laptop computers) that weighs 500 pounds and is bolted to the floor, weekly house cleaning, monkeys, and they are all included at no extra charge. The house is managed by a couple that live just up the hill and are always on hand to answer a question or take care of something. There is even a comprehensive scrap book with loads of information about the house and the area. Everything you need is already there. Beach chairs, towels and much much more.......

Guest of Casa de Memphis I have access to the pool at the Gilded Iguana. Walk down the beach and have breakfast on the beach at Olga's. Walk on a little further and spend the day lounging around the Iguana's pool and waterfall. The bar at the pool is always open and at your service as well as the kitchen for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Tired of cooking? We can arrange for a private chef to do all of the shopping, come to the house and prepare the menu of your choice at a mere fraction of what dinning out would be. This is the best bargain in Nosara and the wife of the owner of the house takes full advantage of this. Imagine, someone comes to the house at 15:00 (3PM), cleans, prepares dinner, cleans up afterwards and departs by 20:00 (8PM). Cost: $25 plus groceries. Tell us what you want and we will make it happen.

NOTE: Nosara, like many other beach communities, is experiencing a building boom. The northern end of Playa Pelada, where the house is located, is the only location free from the early morning construction noise, truck traffic and the associated dust.

Security: Costa Ricans are by nature a very passive people. That said petty theft is an on going issue. Nothing neutralizes this issue more than common since. CdM I & II have alarm systems. No other house available for rent has this level of security.

For more information call us or scroll down just above the photos for the link to the house's website.

      • In Costa Rica, no one is allowed to build within 200 meters of the high tide line, the exclusion zone, unless a concession has been granted for the furthest 50 meters. This concession is where the condos have been built that have ruined such destinations as Tamarindo and Jaco. There are no and will never be condos inside the 200 meters in Nosara, just jungle. The house sits on the 200 meter mark. Casa de Memphis is right at the short trail head to the beach. It is a 30 second walk to the beach with monkeys and all kinds of wildlife residing in the exclusion zone. All of this means that the beach is in a natural setting. Jungle, sand, ocean, as it should be! No concrete!

traveler reviews for this nosara house rental

Casa de Memphis= five stars+

Review submitted: September 19, 2007   Date of arrival: June 1, 2007

What a wonderful experience, so much better than we anticipated. My wife and 15 month old son didn't know what to expect as we drove down the potholed roads to what was apparently the middle of the rainforest, when we pulled up to this beautiful house. It is incredible both inside and out, accented with the most beautiful woods you can imagine. It was roomy, clean, and had all of the amenities we could want. In the morning we would go out on our balcony and watch howler monkeys, veriegated squirrels, parrots, parakeets and cotamundis playing in the trees - right there in front of us! The beach is about 200 ft from the house, and on the way to it we would see many multi colored lizards including iguanas, as well as brilliantly orange-colored crabs and hermit crabs scurrying away. We had this beautiful beach all to ourselves, and found so many colorful and uniquely shaped shaped shells. The water was perfect. We found a coconut the first day, and man was it good. At night, we would sit on the front porch and relax with a cigar and beverage, and you could hear the ocean at the perfect volume, better than any Corona commercial. Even though it seems you are miles away from anywhere, the are little pockets carved away in the jungle that have some of the most marvelous resteraunts and bars I have ever seen. They have completely stocked kitchens and bars, and everything is SOOO fresh. Some were upscale with infitiy pool bars, and while at others I kept waitng for Jimmy Buffet to walk up and have a Margarita. At one place, a couple of kinkajou (raccoon family) walked right out of the jungle up to our table, which my son loved. They were all very reasonbly priced. And if total laid back relaxation and fabulous dining isn't enough, we took surfing lessons (the area is famous for its surfing), and went on an incredibley exhilarating zip line canopy tour. So many other psoitives, like the amazingly few biting insects, the sights and sounds, the people, the weather, and the lack of crowds gives this place the perfect mix of relaxation and excitement. Another crummy week in paradise . . .

Nice place to stay, near fun town

Review submitted: July 31, 2013   Date of arrival: March 16, 2013

Casa de Memphis was a wonderful place to stay with my family. The beach was a short walk (we learned upon arrival that Costa Rica does not allow houses to be build closer than 300 meters from the ocean), there is a pool next door that we were allowed to use, and the house was beautiful and in great condition. The town of Nosara is very near by and has great surf lessons, restaurants, and shops, but it is not too big.

Two words of caution: The rip tide is strong off the coast of the house. David has information about it in the house. We had three children with us, the youngest 6 years old, and learned quickly that they couldn't go it above their knees. Also, the owners recommended two Coast Rican women who would cook for us. They were lovely and prepared a great meal, but in the end charged is 3x what we were told they would charge. We paid, of course, but didn't (couldn't afford to) ask them to return. Better to find a good Costa Rican place in town for a fraction of the cost.

All in all, it was a great experience, and everyone in my family would love to return. (Zip lining, and surf lesson are a MUST!)

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, romantic getaway
