Nosara house description

Barefoot Villa is a new 3 bedroom, 3 full/2 half bath Luxury Villa, located in the prestigious K section of Guiones, on a dead end road just south of the Harbor Reef hotel and a very short walk to Guiones Beach (check out the sattelite map below). Construction was completed in June, 2010.

This house was designed to bring the sounds, smells, and feel of the jungle inside. The walls of the kitchen/family room completely slide away opening up to a large, covered patio that features a second lounging area and a beautiful Guanacaste dinner table that seats eight. Off the patio is the gated private terrace with lush tropical gardens where you can relax in the pool and enjoy a drink on one of the swim up barstools. Or, if you prefer, belly up to the outside bar at the rancho, which also houses an outdoor kitchen, a half bath, an outdoor shower and a full laundry room.

Cook your own meals in the very large, fully equipped, gourmet kitchen with stainless appliances, gas stove, granite counter tops, top quality custom Pochote cabinetry, and a large island that seats six, or we can arrange to have some or all of your meals prepared for you. We can work with you to plan a menu, have the grocery shopping done prior to your arrival and have a wonderful local cook prepare your meals. We guarantee you'll love her!! Also, a guest at the Barefoot Villa is a guest at the famous Harbor Reef Hotel, just a few hundred meters away, where you will have their full range of concierge services available to you as well as a tab at their bar and restaurant.

The three bedrooms are accessed via the stair tower on the back of the house. Two bedrooms are on the second floor, each with air conditioning, ceiling fans and a full bathroom. One bedroom, a “second suite”, has a queen bed with luxurious, 800 thread count sheets over a pillow topped mattress. A pair of French doors opens up to a private patio with a hammock and a pair of rockers shaded by a large mango tree. The other second floor bedroom is the 'bunk room'. It has a set of 'full size over full size' bunk beds with a third full size trundle below, sleeping a total of six.

On the top floor is the very private and very luxurious Master Suite. Stunning vaulted teak ceilings are complimented by matching teak floors. One set of French doors opens to a balcony overlooking the terrace and pool surrounded by lush jungle. Another set of French doors opens to a second balcony from which you have modest ocean views and can listen to the surf. After a hard day of surfing, yoga, swimming or hiking you will quickly fall asleep in the dreamy king size bed with 800 thread count sheets and a pillow topped mattress. The Master Bathroom features a large, tumbled tile walk in shower, a dual sink, granite topped vanity and a separate toilet room.

One unique feature of this house is the powerful, whole house attic fan located in the vaulted ceiling of the stair tower. Each level of the house can be closed off from the stair tower. In the daytime, with the bedroom doors closed and the bottom level door open, the fan provides a constant cooling airflow throughout the kitchen and living areas enabling one to comfortably enjoy the 'open to the outside' concept of the house. At night, although all the bedrooms have air conditioning, it's wonderful to fall asleep listening to the waves and the sounds of the jungle. Just close the bottom level door and cooling air is drawn through whichever bedrooms have their windows and doors open.

You can always sleep soundly because Barefoot Villa was designed with security as a priority. A security guard patrols the property from 6PM to 6AM as well as randomly during the day. There is an alarm system, two large safes, and all doors and windows have metal security bars. The set of electrically controlled roll down bars across the patio are also a nice feature for families with small children. When they are lowered they prevent access to the terrace and swimming pool while retaining the open feel of the living space, creating a kid safe zone.

The furniture was custom made by the very best local craftsmen using local hardwoods Pochote, Teak and Guanacaste. All the ceilings in Barefoot Villa, including the patio and rancho, are Teak. The floors throughout are quality tile except the Master Suite, which are Teak.

Many visitors to Guiones opt to not rent a car. In fact, Barefoot Villa’s location is ideal because it is a four minute walk to the beach and within a five to ten minute walk to the famous Yoga Institute, several bars and restaurants, a surf shop, bakery, gym and market. At the same time you will feel out of the hustle of town because the house is located on a quiet, dead end street with no through traffic. Two beach cruiser bikes are also complimentary as well as two long boards, one 6' fish, one short board, two boogie boards, two 'Beater' boards and beach chairs. A gated driveway and outdoor bodega round out this gorgeous and well designed property.

Come create your own Costa Rican memories at the Barefoot Villa. You won’t be disappointed!!!
