About the property

This Villa is part of Nalu Nosara, a family owned boutique space, which was just completed in December of 2016. It consists of 3 luxury villas, each with their own saltwater pool, private parking, playground/obstacle course, full time guard, and a studio on site that offers public classes like Yoga, Muay Thai Kickboxing, TRX, etc. and you can enjoy one free class with your stay.

We are located right in the heart of Guiones! 5 minute walk to surf or play at Guiones beach and a 5 minute walk to the amazing restaurants and shops of Nosara. At the same time, we are tucked away on a quiet street where you can relax and enjoy the sounds of nature.

About Mariya Libid

We are a couple from New York City that kept coming to visit Nosara to get away and enjoy some warm water surf and yoga classes in the jungle. Each time our visits kept getting longer and longer. We always dreamt about moving to Nosara, but that seemed impossible! We had our first child in New York, but barely had the opportunity to spend any quality time with her because of our demanding jobs and long hours. So by the time we had our second kid, we decided to take the leap. We took a 9 month trial run living in Nosara and by the end of the first month, we decided we are never moving back. We only went back to New York to sell everything we had. Here we are three years later, full time residents of Nosara, loving life and enjoying time with our family in the sun and surf! This year we welcomed our newest baby, Nalu Nosara, we wanted to create a place where families and friends can stay, where you feel safe and relaxed, where you can live a healthy lifestyle, and where kids can run free. So we hope you come stay with us and sure enough, we will try to persuade you to move down here too...

What makes this villa unique

We love this place because we had the opportunity to create it from scratch. We were also lucky enough to work with a world-renown architect, Benjamin Garcia Saxe, who designed these beautiful unique homes in the heart of Guiones.

You can walk to surf, to all the restaurant and the shops. Each villa has its own private pool so you can enjoy the privacy of your own home or come socialize with others at the playground or at the fitness studio, where we offer public classes like yoga and kickboxing. So you don't have to go far to enjoy everything Nosara has to offer.

Great place and lovely host.

Great design and comfortable environment. Having the yoga and workout studio a few feet away made it so easy. Very safe place for families and perfect location.

Almost Too Good

  • 5 of 5

Although we’ve been to Nosara and other parts of Costa Rica over the years, Nalu is a highlight.

The location is perfect, a short walk to local restaurants and shops, quiet without feeling isolated. A short walk to the beach too because there’s nothing right on the beach in Nosara, and that’s tremendous as it ensures a natural and communal shared beach, not a row of condos and hotels.

The property itself is thoughtfully laid out ensuring privacy and wonderful garden spaces. We were greeted by howler monkeys more than one morning!. The private plunge pools are ideal.

The units themselves are tasteful and spacious, easily accommodating family, or couples travelling together. They are surprisingly well equipped making it easy to eat in when you choose to.

There’s a tiny amount of noise that spills over from the studio, but in a motivating and enticing way that makes you want to participate even if that wasn’t in your plan.

Mariya, Steve, and Laura were great. Flexible on our weather delayed arrival, helpful with suggestions and the offers to organize activities (we were in full relax mode though). Laura’s surf lessons were the best that I’ve had.

We’re already discussing who to talk into joining us on a return trip. Looking forward to seeing you all again!!

A perfect getaway...

  • 5 of 5

We found Nalu on VRBO and loved the property so much we based our family’s trip around staying there. We were traveling with our two kids age 9 and 6 so we wanted a vacation that was both comfortable but also adventurous. Staying at Nalu gave us the ability to arrive, instantly decompress and enjoy their stunning property and then to venture out and explore Nosara which was amazing. Nalu was meticulously maintained and we had every creature comfort needed. Our kids loved the salt water pool, outdoor shower,ropes course, howler monkey spottings and the kids dance class they participated in at the Nalu gym facility which had great programming. Mariya helped us with some restaurant recommendations and there were so many fantastic meals we had in the area. Unfortunately didn’t get to try Domel’s Muay Thai Kickboxing class, but Steve did arrange for us to have surf lessons with Laura which was a highlight. There was so much to do within walking distance, but we had our own car which gave us freedom to explore a bit further and we loved the amazing beaches along the coast. Ziplining at Miss Sky was also a highlight as well as meals (multiple) at La Luna Restaurant and the stunning beach there. Thank you for creating this special place. We will be back and highly recommend it to anyone!

Beautiful, well thought out villa.

  • 5 of 5

Mariya and her husband have done an impeccable job with NALU. It has everything you need in a two bedroom house, with great understated style. We have been to Nosara many times over the last six years and obviously love it. We have stayed in many different homes, big and small, modern and more classic. NALU has just the right amount of warmth and a whole lot of class without pretense. We loved our stay and will return for sure. Thank you Mariya!

The photos of the property are dead on. Domel and Mariya were very helpful and knowledgeable about the area and full of recommendations. The studio with the array of classes was remarkable. We truly felt like guests at someone's home. We will back, Pura Vida!
