Property description

Nido de Nicoya
(“Nest over Nicoya”)

Nestled in the hills in the lap of the Aquacate mountains overlooking San Mateo and the Gulf of Nicoya, Nido de Nicoya is a rare find. When we chose this spot to build a vacation home, it was because it had everything we were looking for: easy to get to (less than an hour from SJO airport), great views, natural setting, wonderful climate (National Geographic called nearby Atenas the world’s most perfect climate), close to amenities and healthcare and a reasonable driving distance to San Jose, beaches, diving, surfing, fishing, volcanoes and all the other things associated with Costa Rica.
What we have come to realize however, is that this is a place where you can peek behind the curtain, and experience the real Costa Rica. A sanctuary where a mix of expats and locals (ticos) are living in harmony and enjoying a warm and peaceful existence where friends are made easily, exotic bird and monkey sightings occur frequently, and the setting is as natural and beautiful as anywhere in the world. If you want a lot of action this is not the place for you. If you just want to take it easy and drink in the view, bird watch, catch up on your reading by the pool, take a nap, go on an excursion or venture into town for some shopping and fresh fruit (it’s awesome and cheap!), then we think you’ll like it here. If you decide to visit, we hope you will enjoy staying here as much as we do.

Our home is built on two lots and features 3 BR's and 2.5 baths in the main house, which is 1800 sq. ft. With another 1000 sq.Ft. Of covered terraces. There is a guest house by the pool that has a small kitchen, living area and separate BR w/queen bed and a full bathroom.

The main house has a mbr on the 2nd floor with a king bed, full bath w/separate shower and jacuzzi tub, walk-in closet, coffee bar w/fridge and a splendid covered balcony with the best views on the property. There is also a laundry room on this level. Downstairs are two brs, one w/a queen bed and one w/two singles and a jack and jill bathroom. The lr, dr and kit. are on this level and open out to a covered terrace through two sets of double french doors. There is a carport for covered parking.
