About The Owner

We built this home on a small hill after carefully observing how to maximize the sun and wind to provide comfort and cooling.

We spent time over many years in Playa Guiones surfing, fishing, relaxing and getting to know many local residents.

Joe designed the home and has invested his heart and skill in landscaping. We hope to spend more time in the house as we 'mature' and can afford to work less; so it was really built to 'live in' rather than as a rental property.

WE take pride in keeping the house updated, clean and well functioning, fully stocked with kitchen supplies and linens. Fortunately we have a very attentive property manager, AnnMarie, who will rapidly respond to any of your concerns.

Why The Owner chose Playa Guiones

THE WAVES ARE CONSISTENT, 300 METERS FROM PACIFIC OCEAN, GOOD LOCAL VIBE. We built the house in Playa Guiones after coming here to surf and relax for many years. The flora and fauna always provide new experiences. PURA VIDA.

What makes this house unique


We landscaped with lush tropical and native plants to encourage birds and monkeys to visit

We planted fruit trees and herbs so that you could enjoy as much fresh local food as possible. Help yourself.

All, just steps from the Pacific Ocean.

Great Vacation

  • 4 of 5


Location is fantastic, easy walk to one of the best beaches in Costa Rica.

House is nice design and good construction, clean and comfortable, in private gated community.

Property management team excellent, helpful and responsive.

Points deducted because no master bedroom w attached bathroom, and no washer/dryer (as stated in ad) Also, glassware was sad. Just one wine glass to share would have been nice. Property manager has probably already corrected this oversight, thanks again, Yeudy!

Overall, great house in an amazing place.

Owner's Response: We did not have glassware due to the frequent breakage on stone floors and around pool. BUT we finally found some high quality acrylic glasses and wine glasses . So now everyone can drink happily and with safe feet!

Beautiful oasis

  • 5 of 5

This was my second visit to Playa Guiones, my first time staying at Casa Olaje: I will be back!

This house was the perfect space for the 2 couples that traveled together, the large kitchen and living/ dining areas provided plenty of space and tools for cooking and spending time together and the bedrooms are perfect little pockets of personal respite. We enjoyed the beautiful landscaped yard and all the wildlife attracted to the plants. The sheltered pool and multiple hammocks were welcome spaces between surf sets.

The house is close enough to walk to town and the beach is minutes away by private path.

The owners arrived during our stay and were close at hand in an upstairs apartment when we needed anything (but not omnipresent); the management company also answered email and text promptly when ewe needed them.

We look forward to coming back to this beautiful home in this amazing little town :)

Awesome Spot

  • 5 of 5

Our accommodations in nosara were more than we could have dreamed of! The house was beautiful with plenty of space. All of our guests felt at home. The rooms were clean and well kept. The pool was serene and peaceful, and a beautiful space to relax.

Thank you for the hospitality and we look forward to coming back in the future.

Loved it so much we extended our stay - twice!

  • 5 of 5

Spent nearly three lovely weeks at Casa Olaje. We love Nosara, but had never rented a house before. We wouldn't do it any other way now! A short walk to Playa Guiones, it's a beautiful house, and probably the cleanest rental I have ever stayed at! Large, fully-stocked kitchen, great for cooking in. Lots of hot water and good water pressure in the shower. The screened-in porch and pool are lovely, and the lush grounds attract tons of colourful birds and butterflies. The security guards at the entrance to the community were very professional and friendly, and patrolled the area regularly on foot. We felt extremely safe. Jaimy, the owner, and AnnMarie and Amber (property managers) were very responsive and helpful, and helped us with anything we needed. Wifi is in and out, but that's Nosara. Would definitely return to the beautiful and serene Casa Olaje - tomorrow, if possible!
