Casa Shiva


CASA SHIVA - Location! Location! Sacred Location steps away from sacred Playa Pelada.

Welcome to Casa Shiva, your retreat beach house.

Live in Rhythm at Casa Shiva, a few steps from epic Playa Pelada, one of the most beautiful and serene locations in all of Nosara, and within walking distance to the best surf spots, restaurants, sacred tide pools, rivers, and Turtle Reserve. 

Casa Shiva is an eco-family-style retreat as a secluded cluster of houses nestled on a cul-de-sac. No dust, no traffic, you are part of the last houses where the jungle meets the sea. Once you arrive, no need to drive as you can walk, bike, or Tuk Tuk to stores, restaurants, and surf. The sound of surf permeates the air and the nearly private beach is a short stroll through the 100-meter protected maritime zone.

Enjoy your Jungle Yoga Deck and  Pool and be close to the beach. 

Enjoy yoga for up to 30 people around the pool with the open air, stars, and moon above you. Mornings and afternoons stay shady and you can see the stars and the constellation, Orion and the moon pass over the pool at night

The outdoor pool is a great refuge where a cool breeze through the Palms keeps you cool in the perfect dipping pool. 

Enjoy the lounging furniture and jungle pool surrounded by tall Palms that serve as the neighborhood howler monkey path. The beautiful pool is heated naturally during the day and stays perfect at night. You are in a cluster of a few homes near the Maritime reserve and protected Playa Pelada so you do have neighbors to your left and right but in a quiet neighborhood away from the dust and traffic flow of Playa Guinoes while being a 15 min walk or five min drive away.

Most guests love the natural food within walking distance from the famous La Luna restaurant that you can reach by walking along the beach to the juice + coffee bar, bakery, taqueria, and great, Natural Costa Rican-Gourmet Pizza locals love at Il Pepperoni (lots of vegan options). The famous El Chivo Bar, Olgas, Lagarta Lodge, Nosara Hotel, and La Casa are all nearby. In Casa Shiva, we can help you experience local cuisine with a local chef, or our kitchen is equipped with all utensils and appliances necessary to prepare meals. The coffee, tea maker, and blender are there for your favorite tropical fruit smoothies. 

Casa Shiva can be reserved as a complete unit for large families or groups, sleeping up to 10 people. Casa Shiva is surrounded by wildlife, and ancient Guanacaste trees, which is the tree of the province they call Guanacaste.

About Casa Shiva

Casa Shiva is located near the little-known north entrance to Playa Pelada where the Nosara River meets the Pacific Ocean. Part of a collection of 8 private beach houses with Maritime Costa Rican Local community surrounded by the protected beach on one side and the Ostional wildlife refuge on the other. 

Casa Shiva offers you refuge yet is still very close to surfing, restaurants, grocery stores, and everything else the community of Nosara has to offer. Our street is not a through street but is near the Toucan wildlife sanctuary and only provides entrance to these beach houses.

The location is what makes Playa Pelada special including daily super sunsets on the ocean, tide pool explorations, and the low tide blow hole,  so special. 

You are surrounded by the protected ocean where the Nosara River meets the sea and the Ostional wildlife area is nearby to see the Mother Turtles and Babies being born during the Sept - Feb season. This is one of the largest breeding grounds for turtles in the world and mother turtles and babies are also protected and born at Playa Pelada. 

Because of the peaceful coexistence of the community and the natural surroundings, wildlife comes to the canopy of trees in the neighborhood. If you are looking for private refuge surrounded by peace and nature but still close to it all, this neighborhood is it.  A flock of parrots may land in the trees above and the neighborhood howler monkeys troops may join in - then the jungle sounds come alive. We are blessed to share their ecosystem. 

The house is a three-minute walk to the beach. Built in the Costa Rican style of the surrounding community; this two-story four-bedroom house is created for sol-revival whether you are hosting a small yoga retreat or family gathering or seeking a creative getaway. 

One bedroom has a full-size bed and the other has three custom twin beds. All bedrooms have high ceilings and private baths with walk-in eco-showers.  There are two, separate, private bedroom cabins with their own private bathroom. The morning chill-out room overlooking the pool has its own bathroom across the hall and can be made into a fifth bedroom.  

All five spaces will sleep 10-11 people. Both the house and the cabins have fans for eco-consciousness as well as air-conditioning. 

Enjoy all the amenities of the home including, a private pool,  beach towels, smart TV, high-speed wireless internet, a fully-equipped kitchen, beautiful poolside furniture, a monitored alarm system, and more. Because the house sits at the end of a road there is no traffic, noise, or the associated dust commonly found elsewhere.

Casa Shiva is your sacred space to live in rhythm with the intelligence of nature, honoring families and small movement retreats and has a sound ordinance in the neighborhood of 10 pm. With respect to the wildlife of this Maritime reserve on Playa Pelada. You are near outdoor nightlife a car or Tuk Tuk away and our property manager is a local DJ and Suf Instructor who can help you find the latest happenings during your stay.
