Nosara house description

Gorgeous views and dramatic design! Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGbtluVB-a8

Las Colinas is a compound with a striking two-bedroom house, a stand-alone one-bedroom guest house, a 40-foot infinity-edge pool, and panoramic white water views.

(Please note - Although the owners will be in the house January through March, the guest house or casita is available during those three months.)

The bedrooms in the house are well-separated and each has its own bath. House and guest house both have their own kitchen and laundry. For Christmas and New Year - for any special vacation! - the house + guest house is the perfect place for three couples or a multi-generation family trip. The house itself is fabulous for two to four people and can take five comfortably.

The tropical gardens and forest attract butterflies and birds, including trogons and parrots. A troop of monkeys patrol forest trees close to the houses. The pool has its own kitchenette and gas grill under shade, its own bathroom, and an exotic open-air hot water shower.


The house, Las Colinas:

Beautiful design, soaring cane ceilings and elegant lines. High-end construction, tropical wood features, custom-made furniture, quality European and American appliances. The spacious house has an open floor plan with living, dining, and kitchen areas; they and the master bedroom have knock-your-socks-off beach and ocean views.

Telephone, Internet, DVD-playing TV, mini-sound system (bring your iPod!), and plenty of room for lounging. Huge wrap-around terrace for shade, snoozing, entertaining and al fresco dining.

Private terrace off the master bedroom. Bedrooms are open, spacious, with beautiful tropical fabrics and Roman shades. Read in the master bedroom and watch the moonbeams reflect off the ocean.

The large kitchen, decorated with hand-made Spanish tiles, is perfect for preparing fresh, delicious meals. Serve easily from the kitchen island to large custom dining tables on the terrace and in the dining room, or to the breakfast bar. Clean up with the help of a dishwasher. We can also arrange for catering or a cook.

Each bedroom has a “seamless king” that can be made up as twin beds. Baths are tiled and roomy with plush linens. Solar hot water, washer and dryer and a safe for passports and cash. The fully screened house, carefully designed for delightful ventilation, is insulated against the sun and has a dozen ceiling fans.

The house is gated and has an attached garage. There is a daily gardener, pool cleaning, and regular maid service. Las Colinas is an easy 5-minute drive to Playa Guiones and its shops and restaurants or a 15-minute hike for the adventurous.


The guest house, Casita de las Colinas:

You will be surprised at the gracious and pleasing use of space. It has the same high-end construction, teak hardwood ceilings, custom-made tropical wood furniture, and a spacious, open floor plan. The kitchen is large enough to prepare a wonderful meal for two and you can eat in the living area or al fresco, on the roomy patio with ocean view. Laze in the hammock at the terrace edge and watch the monkeys and birds.

The bedroom has a “seamless king” that can be made up as twin beds. The bath is tiled and roomy with plush linens. There is a washing machine for your convenience (so you can pack light!) and a secure bodega storage area for laptops and other valuables.

The casita is fully screened with great cross ventilation, insulated against the sun and has five ceiling fans. There is a clear sense of privacy and separation from the main house. The casita shares the gated drive and has the same services for yard, pool and housekeeping as the main house. Sleeps two persons, maximum.


The pool area:

The pool has a modern salt-generated system. It is softer and easier on your skin than seawater or chlorine, and you won't have 'chlorine perfume' in your hair. It has a large tile-roof rancho for shade, an outdoor bath/changing room and a private outdoor hot water jungle shower. There is a small kitchenette and gas grill for cooking poolside. Choose lounge or hammock, sun or shade. Best of all, the 40-foot infinity-edge pool has unbelievable beach and ocean views.


Surfing and Las Colinas:

Nosara's Playa Guiones is famous among surfers. It has a consistent mile-long break. It's great for beginners and experienced surfers. You can rent boards, take classes, and get photos of yourself riding a wave. Las Colinas is a great base for surfing: it's breezier, cooler, quieter, and safer than staying near the beach. One surfing family told us the tranquility at Las Colinas was a fabulous change of pace. And you have direct views to check the surf from the terrace and pool!
