Condo Simmertime is a two bedroom condo within the Villa Las Palmas Condominiums in Playa Pelada. This condominium community has a gorgeous pool and is just steps from a secluded section of Playa Pelada. Pelada is located just south of the famous surfing beach, Playa Guiones. Playa Pelada is a beach where you can relax, swim and enjoy the sunshine! NOTE: Not suitable for children 6 and under due to HOA rules.


Upon entering the condo you’ll find the bright and spacious living room with a comfortable L shaped sofa. The living room opens up to the lovely shaded terrace with both a lounging and dining area. The dining area is a perfect spot to enjoy a delicious dinner with the sound of the ocean in the background. Across from the living room is the fully equipped kitchen with marble countertops and a breakfast island. Within the condo, you’ll also find a beautiful sunroom with another dining table and a very cozy futon. The master bedroom has a kingsized bed and opens up to the terrace. If you have the doors open, you’ll wake up to the sounds of the waves crashing into the shore! Both the master bedroom and the guest bedroom have AC. 


Condo Simmertime is part of the Villa Las Palmas Condominium. The condominium has a shared pool in the center of the property. There is also a coin-operated laundry facility near the pool for you to use at an extra cost. The best part about the property is the private beach path to Playa Pelada! Using the VLP private beach path, you are just steps away from the ocean!


Playa Pelada is located just south of the famous surfing beach, Playa Guiones. Walking distance from Condo Simmertime you will find a selection of restaurants, bars and mini markets, as well as local favorite Pelada beach. Laze your day away in a shaded haven or get adventurous - Playa Pelada is full of activity! Take a light hike up the hill between Playa Pelada and Playa Guiones for gorgeous views of both beaches. At low tide you can explore the rocky tide pools, follow the beach north and visit the bat caves, or even venture up through the jungle trails to the Boca (river mouth). If you’re coming for the surf, no problem! You’re just a 10-minute drive, or 20-minute walk, from the north entrance of Playa Guiones.

This property is pristine.

This property is pristine. The house is exactly as advertised and a pleasure to stay at. Beautiful high ceilings, large walk in showers with plenty of hot water and water pressure to spare. The air conditioning worked perfectly. The kitchen is great and very open. We had friends over for dinner that live locally and the 10 of us had more than enough room to enjoy our time together without disturbing neighbors and other guests. The pictures posted actually do not do this property justice. It is much nicer when you arrive in person. Overwhelmingly so. Tucked away in Nosara just far enough from town to keep your seclusion but close enough to walk to town when you want to. The restaurant near by (5 min walk) had great food, fantastic margaritas and a bakery as well. The pool was beautiful and the beach was absolutely incredible. When you walk the path from the property to the beach you get a great sense of the jungles of Costa Rica with out the sense of worry that comes with a foreign place and foreign landscape. Once on the beach the water is absolutely gorgeous. The black sand seems to melt into the waves as they retreat with the crystal clear water. My wife and daughter (10years old) felt perfectly safe on the path to the beach and on the beach by themselves. The seclusion was awesome if there were 10-12 people sharing 2-3 miles of beach it was a lot. There were no bugs on the beach or at the pool. The neighbors were fantastic and very accommodation with info and tips about the surrounding area. Once you locate the grocery store you can find just about anything you want and need. This is a very different way of travel for us. Typically we will go to and stay at higher end resorts at our destinations and have the staff plan our itinerary. We were very fortunate to have friends that live locally that recommended this property to us. This property has all the amenities of a higher end resort but more self directed which we loved. An incredible place to stay in an incredible town

Thank you so much for your review, Gary! It was wonderful having your family in house and we are thrilled that you were so happy with your stay! Do not hesitate to contact us when you return!

We had a wonderful time here.

We had a wonderful time here. Would recommend to others. Gated community with its own beach access! Pelada beach is your backyard. Walk to La Luna for amazing breakfast... and during dinner, watch the sunset. Pool was fun for the kids. We had howler monkeys hanging on the trees outside our window. Iguanas were roaming around the lot. From the terrace, we would always see birds and squirrels on trees eating berries. Property managers were very responsive to our questions and needs. (Hidden by Airbnb) is the main form of communication here.

Steps away from a beautiful beach which is exactly what we wanted.

I cannot say enough great things about the location of this unit. Steps away from a beautiful beach which is exactly what we wanted. and very peaceful and quiet. the unit is a slight bit dated but it is huge and the couch in the living room is super comfy. The pool is nice and clean and we never had issues with noise. we did have some issues with water, electricity and Internet but the host communicated with us daily and worked very hard to resolve as quickly as possible There is a great little grocery store nearby and a couple of good restaurants but you will need a car or a 25 min walk along the beach to get to the main town. There is a path through the trees to get to the southern beach. Just head to the south end of Playa Pelada and you will find it.

The location is very good. Easy access to the beach and near restaurants. Condo was safe and friendly. However, the accommodations need a lot of upgrading. Appliances sketchy and beds uncomfortable with many bugs. Pool tiles are coming off but the pool is nice. The place was not clean when we arrived. Feel like we left it in better condition than when we arrived. Water was turned off for three hours on the first morning without prior notice. Unit needs a bunch of tender loving care.

Thank you for taking the time to write the review. We're sorry that the unit was not what you had expected it to be. We do have it written in the listing that power, internet and water outages can occur without prior notice as often we do not know about them before they happen. We're sorry this happened to you during your stay. We will pass along your suggestions for upgrades to the owners and hope to see you again in the future.

Muy lindo condominio, con una Excelente ubicación

Excelente ubicación, atravesando un pequeño bosque está playa Pelada, a pocos minutos del centro de Nosara y caminando por la playa se puede llegar a playa Guiones. Un condominio completamente equipado y con todas las comodidades. Está en una segunda planta y tiene mucha ventilación. Definitivamente regresaría.

Muchas gracias Gretta, esperamos recibirla nuevamente. Pura Vida!

Great place!

This is our 2nd time staying in the Simmertime condo. 2nd time was just as great as the first. Unit was clean, comfortable & well stocked. Had everything you would need for easy living. The condo complex is beautifully kept up & a very easy walk to the beach thru a "forest" of plumeria's & teak. The team at Rent Nosara are very friendly & helpful. Will definitely be back for our 3rd visit soon.

Spacious Tranquility

Tucked away and timeless, this accommodation had high ceilings and a family of howler monkeys right outside. The kitchen had everything I needed and neighbors were nice. I loved saying hello to ancient pochote tree on the path to the beach.

Thank you Amanda! It was a pleasure hosting you!

Loved it!

Amazing atmosphere! Condo was peaceful and instant access to beach. The adjoining beach was stunning and fun restaurant. The place was clean and roomy. It was so perfect for our family of four. Quiet but close to the downtown area in walking distance. We will be back. Highly recommended! It is the best of both worlds (quiet but walking distance to everything!). Loved it!!!

Thank you Virginia and family! It was a pleasure meeting you and we hope to see you in the future!

great condo! Short walk to a great beach.

“great condo! Short walk to a great beach. Condo was clean with good amenities. Air conditioning was much appreciated in the heat of the day. The security was much appreciated at night. woke up each morning to the sound of the howler monkeys! :)”
