Nosara house description

Lot J47 - CASA CRISTAL DE MAR

Casa Cristal de Mar (Sea Glass House) was recently renovated with major upgrades & additions throughout. We have set our home up for our frequent visits, with every convenience available for us and now YOU.

This house is set up for pure relaxation. Surf, walk, or run on the beautiful miles long white sand beach just a short two minute walk from the house.

Hang out in one of two hammocks while reading that book you have been meaning to finish or start up a game of ping pong. Hang out in the Rancho as you watch the monkeys in the trees above you. Each bedroom has its own full bath and private entrance off of the patio with total privacy. Perfect for four couples or two families.

If you have to bring your work with you or just stay in touch with family and friends, bring your computer and connect with our WiFi connection and plug into our Magic Jack phone for FREE calls to the US and Canada.

Very private. Fully surrounded property.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2010

                          About the owner: We are a very busy family of 5 from Manhattan Beach, CA. Dad and the teen boys are avid surfers and think that Costa Rica is 'off the hook' for surfing !! They hope to get our youngest daughter to join them out on the Playa Guiones waves soon (she stood up her first time out !!). Mom just enjoys strolling the beach in search of amazing shells and sea glass. We will be visitors to our home often, and eventually plan to make Guiones our part time retirement home.

                          Why the Owner Chose Nosara:
                          After only one visit to Playa Guiones, we knew we wanted to buy property there and build our future retirement home. On our second visit, we rented this home and found out it was on the market. Soon after returning home, we gave up our search for a vacant lot and made an offer on this property. Gary has always had such a great eye for making things the best they can be - and so began our newest project - a new addition and remodel of our new home away from home.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          We absolutely LOVE the location of this property. It is just a short walk to anything and everything !! Playa Guiones is truly special and we couldn't feel more blessed to have a home there.
