vacation rental description

Casa de la Luna: Where the comforts of modern luxury meet the natural treasures of Nosara, all within a short walk from the beach. This is a home that truly offers all the amenities. Everything you could want on your next Costa Rican vacation.


Plain and simple. Secluded relaxation, in the middle of everything.

Awake to the sounds of the surrounding jungle. Enjoy your café on the terrace, and watch the howler monkeys swing through the treetops, then head out on foot for a surf, board in arm. Or take an equally short stroll in the other direction, to the tranquil grounds of the Nosara Yoga Institute. Or just lounge in the infinity pool and float the day away.

Location Is Everything:

For those who are new to the area, Playa Guiones offers an unrivaled blend of Costa Rican authenticity, modern convenience, and natural beauty. A long, beautiful bay in the area commonly known as Nosara, Playa Guiones is one of the most sought-after towns in Guanacaste. The flora and fauna are nothing short of astonishing. The surf is excellent and consistent. There is world-renowned yoga. There are adventure activities.

Just around the corner from the house, the town of Guiones has everything you might need: a wide variety of restaurants and bars, surf schools that offer lessons for all ability levels, a drugstore, a medical clinic, a bank, car, quad and bicycle rentals, souvenir shops, spa and massage therapy services. The neighboring “Yoga Institute” offers daily yoga classes and Instructor Training courses.

For those who know the area, Casa De La Luna is located in the K Section, on the main road just past the Harbor Reef and the Guiones Beach Club, a five minute walk to the beach.


3br/2ba + separate Casita (see below for detail on the Casita)

Gated driveway, covered carport, and secure storage area will make you feel safe and sound from the moment you pull up. There are racks for surfboards and beach gear. The outdoor shower makes for a convenient rinse coming back from the beach. Professionally designed tropical landscaping.

The terrace patio is the place to relax, with room enough for everyone. The patio includes a grill and tons of outdoor seating, surrounding a beautiful infinity pool that looks as if it cascades directly into the jungle. The patio connects to the open concept kitchen and living area through twin sets of french doors. Cast them open to create an expansive, flowing space between all three.


Kitchen is sleek, modern, and spacious. It has ALL the amenities, including top-of-the-line appliances. Those who like to cook and eat in, will be pleasantly surprised. Built-in stove/oven, fridge/freezer w/ice maker, dishwasher, blender, nice cutlery, along with the barbecue grill on the patio completes the package.

The living room establishes the elegant, exotic theme that permeates the house. Comfortable sectional couch will fit the whole family. Good music system for tunes.

The master bedroom was designed as a honeymoon suite. All alone on the third floor with two private terraces and wonderful jungle views. Exceptionally comfortable, custom king size bed with white-silk canopy. Large master bathroom, jacuzzi tub, spacious closet, and chaise lounge are nice complements to the Balinese theme. You can truly get away from it all, even with company.

The second floor guest bedroom has a custom queen sized bed, and beautiful hand-carved art. The kids room, on the same floor, includes two sets of bunk beds (1 full, 3 twins), a row of cabinet cubbies for all the kids stuff, and a television. Both second floor bedrooms have private balconies that look out over the gardens.


A/C and ceiling fans in all bedrooms, and throughout house. High speed WIRELESS INTERNET and TELEPHONE.


If you need more room, or if it’s “just the two of you….” Downstairs with a private entrance is a very nice apartment with living room, full kitchen, and master bedroom. Just as nice as the rest of the home. French doors open out to private patio and garden. Also has A/C and ceiling fans. The Casita can be rented separately or in addition to the main house. Just inquire!


Please call or write if you have any additional questions, or if you would like more photos. We look forward to welcoming you to our home, and sharing the beautiful surf and sunsets of Nosara soon.

traveler reviews for this nosara villa rental

Beyond Expectations.

Review submitted: June 11, 2014   Date of arrival: March 1, 2014

My girlfriend and I had the opportunity to go down to Costa Rica for 12 days. I thought I had a pretty good idea of what we were in for. We booked our time at Casa De La Luna. The location seemed perfect, the pictures looked amazing, the price was right.

I mean look at those pics, they are really fantastic. This place really has to be experienced in real life however, to be truly appreciated. What the pics can’t show is the howler monkeys swinging and howling in the trees daily around the property, the simply stunning beach that is really right down the road, the feel of the jungle all around you when you hang out by the perfect pool, the spacious well appointed interior, the relief you feel when you flip on the AC at night before bed or late in the afternoon after baking in the sun all day, and don’t even get me started on what a super fun adventure driving on the local roads (in a golf cart or car) can be.

Also, you really can tell that the people who own and manage this place really take great pride in the house and property and do everything they can to make sure that everything is in it’s right place as far making your stay the best to can be.

So, like I said, I thought I knew what to expect, but this place really exceeded every expectation. Nosara, it’s beaches and all the surrounding areas are as great as you’ve heard and you can read about their splendor in countless other places. I am here tell you that if you’ve already chosen Nosara as your destination and your search for perfect accommodations has led you here, consider yourself lucky.

BOOK IT. You will not be the least bit disappointed.

Would rent again....

Review submitted: March 31, 2014   Date of arrival: March 12, 2014

Loved that Casa de la Luna was just a short walk to the beach. The house was basically adjoined to another house. We had no problems with the neighbors but it could be a dicey set-up if peace and quiet is your aim and the neighboring renters are rowdy. The jacuzzi tub jets didn't work and ants came out of the jets. Advertised as having a good music system for tunes but we never found the system. Rugs in master bathroom need a good washing. Overall it was a wonderful stay and we would definitely consider renting Casa de la Luna next year.

Owners response: Hi Thomas,
First of all, thank you for staying with us, and taking the time to review our property. We truly appreciate it. We’re are constantly trying to improve our guests’ experience.

We have replaced the sound system so the main floor and patio area can be flooded with music!

We apologize for the issues you had with the tub, we were not aware. We are looking into this immediately.

We apologize for the master bathroom rugs, we will make sure that these are always cleaned(or replaced if necessary) in the future.

Thank you again for your input, and we hope to see you again soon. Pura Vida!

Wonderful vacation at Casa De La Luna

Review submitted: March 7, 2014   Date of arrival: February 15, 2014

The house and grounds were beautiful, clean, and comfortable. We enjoyed the pool, the decks, and the air conditioning mid-day. The home is beautifully and comfortably decorated. The realtor and caretakers were very helpful with advice for markets, restaurants, and activities. We rented a golf cart to get to and from the town of Guiones and the beach; roads are rough and dusty, and some form of transportation is necessary. The only part of the description I disagree with is "steps to the beach"--we really needed the cart to cover the distance with a toddler and all our stuff. The entire family had a wonderful stay, and we would recommend this home to everyone.

Owners response: Thanks for the great review, Diane. We are so happy that you were pleased with your stay. We’ve updated the listing to be a little more clear about the distance to the beach.

We hope to see you again soon! Muchas Gracias!
