vacation rental description

Hello prospective renters !

I'm a fellow surfer in the Redondo Beach California area and hope you will come and enjoy our Villa in Nosara! I've Just Purchased a very interesting vechicle called a Bajaj Torito which is sort of like a 3 wheel golf cart with a roof over it and a surf board rack has been installed on each side. They drive them all over Asia! It can carry up to 3 people. (So families of 4 or more please rent a vehicle:) which I am including at NO EXTRA CHARGE!. They usually rent for $50 a day down here! The money you will save on the Bajaj for a week is almost like getting my place for free! I JUST HAD SURF BOARD RACKS INSTALLED ON THE Bajaj. 2 RACKS, ONE PER SIDE. Take it to the Beach, grocery store, wherever you like, whenever you like! just fill up the little gas tank for me when you leave:) I have also added a couple of doubles size air mattresses in case you have more people coming:)or more kids:)

The place has 1000 sq.ft. of interior space and 500 sq.ft. of patio. 2 beds (both queen size), 2 bath tubs. Granite & Stainless kitchen with a full complement of appliances, and a laundry room with a clothes washer/dryer. It’s on 1/4 acre with its own private pool that is fully tiled and graduated 4 to 6 feet!! It has super quiet split system a/c's with remote controls. There are 4 separate A/C's, one in each bedroom and two in the living room. The bedrooms have two very attractive ceiling fans and there are two in the living room as well.

You can do every kind of out door activity you can imagine, except snow sports!! You can hear the howler monkeys and parrots; you can completely open the front and sides of the Villa to be fully immersed in the jungle atmosphere. See the pictures here!

Please call me with any questions. Also,if you have a bigger party coming down, my neighbors here may be able to accommodate you so you can have two or more Villas that are adjacent to each other!! This place is a great value for the dollar, and is very close to all the great activities the area has to offer.

To get here, you can fly into Liberia and drive 2 hours south. Or, you can fly into San Jose. From there it is a 4 1/2 hour drive but you can see some scenic things along the way. From either airport now you can now take a small plane with Sansa or Nature air on to the small air strip right here in Nosara, having one of the three (in town) car rental agencies meet you there with a vehicle of your choice :)

You can even take a bus from San Jose for about $8 US dollars! Then hop on my Bajaj in Nosara and not even need to rent a car:)!

I hope you have a great vacation here and I will help in you any way that I can. I also have an excellent property manager named Eduardo with Nosara Office Supply in Nosara that will take care of all your questions when you get here, and by e-mail or phone before you get here :) such as maid service, fun things to do. etc... He has have been here for over 20 years!

You can call me any time on the numbers listed at the bottom:)

If you miss me leave me some good times to call you back:) The latest amenity I have added is a Costa Rica cell phone that you can get from Eduardo and just get your own SIM card. most of your US phones will charge $2.20 a min. if you happen to use your phone:( this will be a way less expensive way to go. You can book excursions and do all sorts of things with your own local phone when in CR:)

Pura Vida!

Dave Carroll

Redondo Beach (a Los Angeles suburb city in case you were wondering:) California

You will find at the house, two 24 speed mountain bikes., Surfboards- two epoxy tri fin boards 7'6' & 9'0, one 9'6' and one 8'0' fiberglass. Board rental in the area can be expensive, from $130 a week and up. Save your money and stay at my place!! My favorite and newest board is the bigger fiberglass board.

WE ARE AROUND A 15 MIN DRIVE TO 4 BEACHES:) Guiones, Ostional, Pelada & Nosara, its a little faster by car than the little Bajaj:) Also once you get used to the dirt roads you can go faster after a few days. But, hopefully in Costa Rica you can move more slowly and relax. Remember your on vacation! I've ridden the bicycle to the beach in 25 min.:) so that is an option for those not afraid of a little workout:)

By the way, I cannot guarantee that the Bajaj Torito will be running when you get there as I do not have a fleet of them and some thing could have happened before you got there that is out of my control and the parts have to come from India:) so it is sort of a favor to the renter like the surf boards. So always be prepared to rent a vehicle as a back up plan:) Everything in the 'Nosara' area is spread out in a 3 mile radius so that is why I, and the Lonely Planet travel guide recommend using a motor vehicle.

  • Notes
    • Just purchased a 1 year old Bajaj (they drive them all over in Asia) that I am including with the rental at no extra charge. It can carry three people. It looks like a 3 wheel motorcycle golf cart thing with a roof over it and it has a surfboard rack on each side. In Guiones there is an RE agency that rents 4 of them for $50 a day. 3 size helmets are there as well for you. An Adult Small(should fit a kid well) a medium and an Extra large. I just added 4 surf boards, two mask/snorkle sets and two 24 speed bicycles. The surf board sizes are 9'4" 9'0",8"0" & 7'6". Two of the leashes have a key pocket built into the part you attach to your ankle. boards are renting for around $140 a week or more down there so you will be able to save some serious money if you like any of my boards. Don't leave the boards unattended please:) And beginners please don't run the fins into sand:) If you ding or break off a fin please take it to one of the local surfboard shops and leave it to be repaired.

traveler reviews for this nosara villa rental

We Loved it!

Review submitted: August 13, 2013   Date of arrival: July 2, 2013

Sarah and I fell in love with Nosara, we stayed over a month, Costa Rica is a remarkable country and we will return many times, a great place to bring up children, especially in Nosara. Of course most time is spent at Playa Guiones, surfing is awesome! the boards at the house are good but I opted to rent at Coconut Harry's for a more tailored board to fit my needs. Sarah was involved with a teacher/trainer Pilates course, if you surf, Pilates is amazing for relief and flexibility. We loved the location of the house, off the main dirt road to Ostional, 3 miles outside the surf towns. After a vigorous day at the beach, coming home to surf monkey was perfect. The pool is GREAT, and totally private, in fact the whole house is totally private, there are neighbors, which is good, but the hedges and trees give you freedom to be yourselves. Waking up to monkeys howl still resonates in me and waking up at dawn was normal. The sun sets around 6pm everyday and should never be missed, beautiful! The house is immaculate, minimum mosquitos compared to beach which was a concern, the house has no windows, only huge doors that fold open to the outdoors, seems nuts since you're in the jungle, but for some reason it totally works, i'm convinced its the dragon flies, look up while laying at the pool and you'll see thousands of them above you! I recommend a visit to SIBU, a monkey rescue operation and of course try hard to experience the Arribada at Ostional, only make sure you can get there through the rivers. We had a Daihatsu Bego, only adequate, the roads are rough, get a good big 4x4 to travel through country. Eduardo the manager is incredibly helpful as is David the owner. The beds are comfortable, the layout is perfect for 2 couples (but we liked it to ourselves) you'll be greeted by a calico cat we named Josie, she is a very sweet and remarkable cat. Frankie's organic store is 200 meters north, a must, the Yoga spa is across from him. This house was a very smart move and we will return to it. Enjoy living in surf shorts and flip-flops, and while in CR, don't touch toads, caterpillars, spiders and snakes!

Wonderful Home!

Review submitted: March 29, 2013   Date of arrival: March 19, 2013

I have rented through VRBO for years now and find many people now how to take pictures to make their homes look better so you will rent. This home is the exact opposite. If you go in the dry season the vegetation won't be as thick, but the home is beautiful and the pictures online are not camera trickery. All the appliances you need are there and in great working order. Safe location with neighbors close enough, but not too close. All the amenities such as the boards, bikes and buggy are exactly as shown and in good condition. This place could be rented by anyone from families to young adults. I rented it for a romantic getaway/surf vacation and it worked out excellent. It is far enough away from the town so you are not in the middle of all the tourists, but close enough that you can get to the main surfing locations in minutes.
The Owner was extremely helpful in planning out our vacation with his local knowledge and pointed us to some very informative websites, which took a lot of the guess work out of the trip. Even when I had issues unrelated to the home the owner made himself available to assist in resolving the situation. I would highly recommend this wonderful villa to anyone.

Perfect Vacation!

Review submitted: February 28, 2013   Date of arrival: February 15, 2013

This vacation was everything we expected it to be and more! It was adventurous: we surfed, zip-lined, tried new fruits (I recommend the Guanabana!), SUP (stand up paddle board) down the river, and saw monkeys in the trees right next to us! It was romantic: we had beautiful dinners and watched the sunset. It was amazing -- meeting the Ticos and people who have lived there for years, and meeting first-time visitors, like ourselves!
As much time as we spent exploring Nosara (the city and beaches) and the neighboring Ostional (the turtles and black sand beach!), we spent a lot of time in the Surf Monkey Villa. It was really relaxing to jump in that pool, or take a nap in the brand new hammock. We spent nights in watching DVDs that we rented for a couple dollars at the Frog Pad. Jason loved disconnecting from technology, but of course, I appreciated the WiFi and checked my emails once a day :)
We learned so much about the city and it was amazing to see that some of the visitors have come year after year for 5, 10, 15+ years -- and we understand why! The Bajaj is awesome with the surf racks and can get you to downtown Guiones and Nosara town! We rented a car because we knew we'd want to explore some neighboring cities, and I'd recommend that if you'd like to do the same. Also, the roads are not well-paved all the time, so it's a bumpy drive in the bajaj or four-wheeler or car. This is a great place to practice your Spanish if you're not fluent ... because everyone here speaks English :) Ahora hablo espanol perfectamente!
Lastly, it's a great place to get connected to your body and wellness -- with lots of great fresh food (especially fruits and seafood) and activities (yoga, surfing, pilates, massages, etc.). We took beginner's yoga classes at Nosara Yoga Institute in a tree house which was so fun and the Costa Rica Yoga Spa is next door to the Villa -- what an amazing view!

Thank you!!!
