We loved the Sunset Shack. There are a small number of rooms on this property but it's very quaint, very neat, with lush landscape and friendly faces. We loved it, also, because it was so close to the beach.

About
Description
An old school surf hostel at heart, The Sunset Shack is a boutique hotel in Nosara, Costa Rica that offers a nostalgic, laid back sense of style and comfort at the beach. Thoughtfully located just 50 meters from More Playa Guiones’s main break, The Sunset Shack is the perfect place to relax after an afternoon surf session or an exciting local adventure. All 8 rooms on the property include air conditioning, private bathroom, a small refrigerator and kitchen sink, along with basic kitchen necessities like plates, silverware, glasses and a french press for your early morning or afternoon coffee. Clean, comfortable design mixes with a sense of community, inviting you to slow down and connect with the beautiful natural surroundings and friendly people of Nosara. We're proud to be the first hotel in Guanacaste to participate in MarViva's #chaoplasticodesechable campaign, which confirms the elimination of single-use plastics from our hotel. See you soon, Pura Vida! Less
