Description

ABOUT CASA ANANDA

Casa Ananda is a newly constructed home located in the K section of Playa Guiones. This property is made up of three private casitas, one main house with a loft, a salt water pool, a private yoga rancho and a large and luscious garden! The Bali inspired design sits perfectly in the jungles of Costa Rica. This home sleeps up to 8 people, all with their own private space and air conditioning. This private oasis is perfect for a large family gathering or even a small retreat. 

LOCATION IS EVERYTHING

The K section of Guiones is one of the most desirable rental locations. This neighborhood is primarily residential which allows you to enjoy the quiet time away from the more trafficked areas. That said, you are still just steps away from the beach and a short drive (or a 15 minute walk) to the restaurants and shops! The closest beach entrance, Baker’s Beach, is best known for its mellow waves and community sunset gatherings.

ON THE INSIDE

The main house of Casa Ananda is where you will find the communal areas such as the kitchen and living space. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to prepare delicious meals for your family and friends! Not in the mood to cook? Let us book a private chef for you and your group and try some of the amazing authentic dishes that Costa Rica has to offer. The main house also contains a sleeping area in the loft with a half bath. There is not a full bathroom in the main house.

In addition to the main house, there are three separate casitas each equipped with a king sized bed, a large ensuite bathroom with plenty of closet space, a safe, air conditioning, a private outdoor shower and best of all, a large balinese bathtub! The casitas also have the ability to be opened up entirely with surrounding glass doors, or kept private with the floor length curtains. 

ON THE OUTSIDE

Casa Ananda has one of the most spacious gardens you will find in the area! Spend your time relaxing in the salt water pool between surf lessons and yoga classes. Like to practice yoga on your own? This property comes with it’s own private yoga shala!

The wall surrounding the property gives you the privacy you need to enjoy your time away from the excitement of Nosara. There is plenty of parking within the property wall.

LOCAL QUIRKS

While the infrastructure in Costa Rica is improving, it is highly likely that you will experience power, water and internet outages at some point during your stay. We consider it part of the fun of experiencing another country and culture. All of these outages are beyond the control of the homeowner and the management company and may come without advance notice. If having internet access is imperative during your visit, we recommend you research internet data plans available to your through your cellular provider. The Playa Guiones, Playa Pelada and surrounding areas of Nosara are rapidly growing communities. As such, much of the area will have noise from construction typically between the hours of 7am and 5pm. We do our best to update our properties impacted by construction, however, we are not always provided advance notice of a project. If you have any questions at all, please contact us in advance of booking your stay as refunds and concessions will not be given for any of the reasons above as they are beyond the control of the homeowner and property manager. Thank you and we look forward to helping you step back in time, relax and enjoy the Pura Vida of Costa Rica.

We had an excellent time staying at this property!

We had an excellent time staying at this property! Our group was three couples, so we each took a separate casita and then used the main house as a communal area. There were a lot of great things about the property, so it would be easier to just list them out: -air conditioning in the rooms worked so incredibly well, even on a hot day you could feel chilly in there. Main house also had AC but it wasn’t as powerful just due to size of the room (still great to have!) -kitchen and dining area was great, perfect for cooking and playing games as a group -it is insanely beautiful, you feel like you have your own little paradise. -Surrounded by a jungle filled with animals and critters, you really feel like you are in the rainforest -the location was great, you could certainly walk to the beach and food if you wanted, though having a car I think is pretty necessary to really see the area (without walking super long and getting overheated) -property felt safe and security in the area seemed solid -pool was great on a hot day, not very large but just perfect for a group of people to lounge in -the outdoor showers were pretty cool, nothing like I’ve ever experienced Of course, there were also some cons to the location, but most of those were really more due to the area than to the house itself. Some things to consider: -you could not flush toilet paper because of the areas weak pipes (nosara problem, not house problem) -you are IN the jungle, so bugs do manage to make their way inside one way or the other. Also you should expect a spider or centipede chilling with you as you shower outside -the howler monkeys have no mercy for early wake ups -the water was very hard and had a slight smell to it the entire time (minerally, almost sulfuric?) -power would flicker out, but literally only for a few seconds before coming back on (also a nosara problem) -I would’ve liked more pillows (maybe I just didn’t notice where extras were stashed?) -everything felt very clean but there were occasional stains on sheets or towels that just felt meh -the hot water in the shower is NOT infinite, so after about two/three people showering in a row you are doomed to get cold water. It’s ok if you can stagger/not have everyone shower on same day. When the shower was hot, it was magical. When it was cold, you were just shivering in a jungle surrounded by bugs. Would I pick this place again? 100%. The issues I had were pretty much par for the course based on where we were. The people who manage this place, however, were so awesome and responsive to everything that we never had to worry about being stranded without help. They let us check in a bit early, answered a ton of our questions, and even sent an electrician to take care of an outlet issue within 24 hrs. Altogether we had a great time. Thanks RentNosara!

We loved our stay at Casa Ananda!

We loved our stay at Casa Ananda! The hosts were amazing and the property was everything that we were hoping for. There are three casitas, each with a king bed and the central structure which has the kitchen and an upstairs king bed loft. The three casitas all have outdoor showers which are really special as you feel like you are showering in the jungle. The location is also great as it's walking distance to the beach and not far at all to town. The hosts arranged everything we needed and we could not have been happier. We will definitely return. Thanks so much again.

It was such a pleasure hosting you! Can´t wait to see you in the future!

The town Is beautiful. I think it is important to really get it in writing and reconfirm any additional services you may want. The price change last minute for me and I was very disappointed. Also there seems to be a ration of toilet paper. They’re only two pillows per room and unfortunately no additional pillows for sleep. If you’re 30 this is your place. If you’re looking for comfort and some more amenities this is not it. That is not a pool that is a square cold water fountain Sized for couple people. Also the lawn chairs have no padding and that is not comfortable for someone who wants to lay out. It is beautiful but they could also make sure to fill out the shampoo shower gel for the guest.

Thank you for the review Patty. I'm sorry that you were confused by the grocery service. We've never had the problem previously where clients assumed that we would front the bill for their groceries prior to their arrival. We will take this into consideration with future clients! We leave two rolls of toilet paper in each bathroom (this home has 4 bathrooms) which is usually plenty for a stay of less than a week. We will pass along your feedback about the pool chairs and pool to the owners for consideration. Hope to see you in the future.

This is really a special home in Nosara.

“This is really a special home in Nosara. The design is so beautiful, tropical, and calming. It really feels like a private tropical paradise. We shared the home with two other couples which was a perfect situation. We all had our own casitas with tons of privacy yet could congregate by the pool or in the main house whenever we wanted to socialize. The grounds are very well maintained with no houses behind it so you feel like your right in the forest. Our host Katy from rent Nosara made sure we had everything we needed before arrival including golf carts, surf lessons and groceries. It was nice to have a responsive host that helped us with any questions we had.”

GREAT location!

My family and I escaped to Costa Rica during this crazy time and fell in love with Nosara. This property was perfectly located and near the Bodhi Tree Resort. We were able to get around with the ATV and jungle cart with the kiddos easily not having to get on the main road. The kitchen was equipped with the basics, except for a coffee maker which I asked for and the property manager quickly responded to this request. The pool is smaller so mostly for cooling off and taking a quick dip. There were a LOT of bugs and flies in the main house, which they had left some fly spray. The AC units worked well and were very comfortable at night. We enjoyed our stay overall :)

Vacation Bliss

I visited Casa Ananda in August of 2018 and woke the first morning to hear my grandson calling, “They’re here!” He was referring to the howler monkeys in the trees in the yard! This was just the first of many animal sightings during our stay. Ananda means ‘bliss’, and you just might find it on the meditation platform nestled within this property. With its individual sleeping casitas, common living room/kitchen space, pool, and lushly planted yard bordered by jungle, it’s a haven offering privacy, rest, and relaxation. The expansive Pacific is just a few minutes down the road. The broad, sparsely populated beach will surely inspire you to walk or surf for hours, and you will never forget the incredible sunsets which draw visitors and locals each evening. Another plus is the juice bar at the Bodhi Tree Retreat just up the road. I will definitely book Casa Ananda again the next time I vacation in Costa Rica.

Perfect Vacation in Every Way!!!

If I could leave 7 stars I would!!! My wife, daughter and I spent an amazing week there with our best friends and their children and the house is spectacular, the grounds are beyond beautiful and we can’t wait to go back!!! It’s a perfect set up for a large family or a couple of families looking to enjoy time together as well as having some privacy. Having the three separate private casitas and a large main house was perfect for our group. We could enjoy our time together in the beautifully appointed main room combined with the perfect kitchen and then retire to the most comfortable bedroom suites with our private bathroom. I’m not sure what my wife enjoyed more, having wine on the love swing behind our casita talking to the Holler monkeys or enjoying some yoga and coffee over looking the pool and waterfall. But I know what I LOVED MOST, the couple of minute walk to the best surf beach in the world!! The soft sand under my feet, looking a mile left or right down the uncrowded beach with the perfect line up of surf was beyond my wildest dreams. Of course hours of surfing in the warm surf and then getting a fresh coconut from a beach local girl was pretty awesome as well. I cannot recommend this beautiful home enough, just a couple minute walk to an amazing hotel with a great restaurant and a short drive to so many delicious local restaurants makes this place the perfect place for your first or 50th trip to Costa Rica. We’ve enjoyed several cities in Costa Rica and many beautiful homes and 5 star hotels but this is the only place we will stay in Costa Rica from now on!!!!!
