More than the gorgeous property, untamed rainforest and proximity to the beach, Debra with her amazing warmth and hospitality truly made my stay unforgettable. I went to bed to the nighttime sound of crickets and the ocean, and awoke to the sound of monkeys in the trees outside my room. I cannot wait to return!

I was looking for a place to get away from work and think about what I would like to do next with my life. This retreat was perfect. The...

For me, this was the most "rustic" place I have ever stayed. Some people might laugh but I am not a camper type. There is no luxury here and yet is so luxurious to wake up every morning listening to birds and monkeys in the middle of the jungle and then to throw on your flip flops and take a...

We stayed at the Treehouse for 3 nights and greatly enjoyed it! The walk to the beach is 5 minutes, Playa Guiones (main swimming/surfing beach) is a 5 minute drive. We really enjoyed reading in the hammocks and doing a horseback riding tour set-up through the B&B!

Nosara B & B is comfortably nestled in a beautiful, lush, tropical jungle-like setting. Awaken to the sounds of the howling monkeys, walk to a beautiful, private beach, admire the carefully tended vegetation and enjoy wonderful hospitality.

Nosara B&B is an experience like no other, yet I felt incredibly at home. The natural jungle landscape is extraordinary, the accommodations simple, tidy and comfortable. The owner and hostess, Deborah has a warm, familiar disposition; she was approachable and resourceful throughout my stay. The property is "green" and low-tech, so you can't be overly reliant on checking emails or...

We traveled all day to get to Nosara. We arrived at dusk & had no reservations. We stopped by to ask for directions and met Deborah the owner. She gave us directions and answered all of our questions. She was so great & helpful that we decided to just stay there. The property is beautiful. The rooms have what you...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)

Created in harmony with nature, we are here to provide you with an ideal setting for relaxation, rejuvenation, personal rediscovery and fun. A five-minute walk brings you to the secluded Pelada Beach with fine white sand. The ocean is the centerpiece of life here. You can walk for miles along the quiet, unspoiled beaches of Nosara observing magical rock formations, breaking waves, and gentle tide pools. We provide affordable earth friendly living with personalized service. We have a variety of room choices from private rooms and baths to shared kitchen areas. As well as a private casita with separate room that sleeps up to four. Onsite yoga pavilion with mats, props, and pillows available. Also on site Temescal (sweat lodge). Activities we offer include: turtle nesting, surfing and horseback riding, water sports, hiking trails, walk through the biological preserve, and zip line tour. Our on site jungle trail through the green zone to the beach allows you to explore the unspoiled wildness of this vibrant natural habitat. Nosara Retreat is an ideal spot from which to explore Nosara's laid-back charm, fine restaurants, shops and assortment of Yoga and wellness options. Or you may want to just relax in a hammock, watch the howler monkeys and listen to the ocean. This peaceful setting is ideal for unwinding.
