Playa Negra house description

Casa Ohana is a one-of-a-kind, 6,000 square-foot home perfect for family reunions and smaller family getaways. This strikingly new, curved-wall, contemporary home sits atop a 30-foot volcanic bluff overlooking the world-class surf break of Playa Negra
From the boulder-strewn circular driveway, the entry soothes you onto a blue-floored lanai, an open-air space with fantastic views, teak rockers, hammocks, chaises, and built-in lounges wrapping the curved southern wall. From the lanai you look out over a 40-foot lap pool and expansive deck to the beckoning Pacific Ocean. Waves crashing over spectacular rock clusters and lava reefs define the immediate view. The landscaping surrounding this home is equally as unique and includes many local native trees and palms and ocean loving plants and grasses.

Entry Level:
Upon entering the house, guests step up past the soaring 30 foot glassed-in atrium into the spacious living-dining room with 10 foot ceilings where you will find built-in couches with comfy cushions and pillows, a large hand-made teak dining table and windows offering a breathtaking view of the Pacific Ocean. This level also has a fully-equipped kitchen with hand-made cabinetry, marble countertops, sub-zero stainless refrigerator, convection oven/microwave, dishwasher and electric stovetop. From the spacious decks surrounding the living room area you’ll thrill to watch the surfers at Playa Negra, enjoy spectacular Guanacaste sunsets or dine al fresca while gazing out over the blue pool. A half bath completes this level.

1st level: A half-flight of stairs leads up to three ocean-facing bedrooms and a fourth bedroom boasting beautiful mountain views. Two of the bedrooms each have queen beds and the other two have two double beds each. Each bedroom has open closets, ceiling fans, air conditioning, hardwood ceilings and access to a balcony or deck. Two full baths, a half-bath and laundry are also located on this level.

2nd level: Up another half-flight of stairs are the master suite and office/media area. The bedroom boasts an absolutely gorgeous 220-degree view of the Playa Negra surf break and the northwest Guanacaste coast. Off the bedroom is a private bathroom with an open shower, large vessel sink and a hand-built wood master closet. Decks and built-in benches deliver spectacular ocean and sunset views from this private balcony.

Amenities include: on site property management with Beach Grass Rentals who can assist with all aspects of your vacation including private pick up at airport, rental car brought to your house, grocery shopping, arranging tours, massages, points of interest, catered meals, in home chefs, special occasions, etc. Amazing ocean vistas, upscale appointments, and a 5 minute walk from the world-class surf break Playa Negra, round out this luxury vacation rental.
