Nosara house description

Located at the south end of Playa Guiones in Nosara in a new gated community/development called the Guiones Beach Club, the Rancho Paloma Azul home is perched on top of a small knoll that is 1110 square meters (approximately 1/3 acre) in size.

It has views of the Pacific Ocean, the surrounding hills and rain forest and is approximately 300 yards from the beach (about a four minute walk at most on a private, palm-lined trail). Because of its slight elevation, the property typically receives a nice ocean breeze.

This home can accommodate as few as two guests with bed space for as many as 22 and includes all of the following:

THE RANCHO:
A 18' x 24' indigenous open-air ''palapa'' style patio structure made of beautiful teak wood. This is the social hub of the home. It includes an open kitchen, bar counter top & stools and a large communal dining area along with open-air hammocks and lounge day beds and views to the beach. This building is immediately adjacent to the private swimming pool.


THE CABANA SUITES AND THE BUNK HOUSE:
Located on the 1st floor level are four (4) attached Cabana Suites, all of similar construction, each with its own 4-post queen size bed, private bathroom and porches with rocking chairs. Great for couples or for individual usage.

The building is a partial two-story structure with an upstairs master suite, called The Bunk House, equipped with a large bathroom. With three (3) full beds and two (2) twin bunk-style beds, The Bunk House can sleep up to a total eight people. Great for kids, teens and/or couple and individual usage.

Two surfboard racks for storage of up to 12 surfboards. Three outdoor showers, one by the pool for rinsing sandy feet and two others by the Cabana suites and surfboard rack, respectively.

All rooms are equipped with locked mini-bodegas and digital safes to safeguard your personal belongings.

THE SWIMMING POOL:
The pool is approximately 12' x 22', fully tiled with shallow and deep areas. Pool uses a salt water chlorine generator, so no harsh chemicals for eyes, skin and hair.

ADDITIONAL SLEEPING AREAS:
There are additional outdoor, covered sleeping areas in the second floor loft of the Rancho equipped with two (2) full beds and two (2) twin beds with mosquito netting and ceiling fans.

FULL-TIME CARETAKER:
A friendly, full time on-site caretaker lives on the property to provide 24/7 security for the home and guests. He handles all pool and gardening duties and is available to assist guests during their stay, including making dinner reservations and activity booking.

HOUSECLEANING/MAID SERVICE:
Daily maid and cleaning service is included in the rental of this property from Monday through Saturday.

COOK/CHILD CARE:
Daily assistance with cooking and/or child-care is available upon request.

ON-PREMISE MASSEUSE OR YOGA:
Assistance with scheduling on-premise massage or yoga lessons.

ABOUT GUIONES BEACH CLUB: We have yet to locate the GBC clubhouse or any dues-paying members for that matter, but it is a private gated community with a 24/7 guard house and security patrol, all underground utilities (unique in Nosara) and unbeatable proximity to Playa Guiones beach.

                      Come surf one of the finest beach breaks in all of Central America. Great surfing for advanced to beginner. Good local surf shops and rentals.

                      Playa Guiones offers consistent, Pacific storm-generated surf 12 months a year, rotating between wintertime north swells and summertime souths and southwests. Winter winds are generally off-shore, and conditions vary from fun, small beach break and reef break waves, to river mouth points, to fast overhead beach break and point breaks, to outer-reef large surf.

                      Water temperature ranges from 80 to 86 degrees. Air temperature is consistently between 76 and 86 degrees, with relatively high humidity. Wetsuits are never needed. Beaches range from white to black sand, and extreme tidal conditions offer great opportunities for snorkeling, tide pool exploration, and shell collecting.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: This property is owned by a group of 7 fun-loving partners from the U.S. We purchased the dirt back in 2006 but just finished the house, known as Rancho Paloma Azul, in January of 2009. We are all friends and family and this place was designed for big informal gatherings with multiple families and lots of kids. The house is informal, laid back and celebrates coming together in such a pristine and wonderful environment.

                      Why the Owner Chose Nosara:
                      Nosara and Playa Guiones is a truly special spot. Very laid back and non-resort-like. Extremely kid friendly. We are here because this is a great spot to relax and be with friends and family. Oh yeah, and the surfing rocks and sport fishing is pretty awesome too.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Rancho Paloma Azul is uniquely designed around a central outdoor living area to allow you to be in the outdoors and enjoying the beach breezes, sound of the ocean and the pool.
