Ostional villa description

In the Nosara area there is simply no property which compares with the villa at Rancho Rio Montana. We are the only property located on its own ranch offering the discerning vacationer complete privacy and tranquility in a spectacular setting just minutes from Nosara. Rancho Rio Montana is perfect for family gatherings, weddings, honeymoons, reunions, retreats, couples vacations.

The villa at Rancho Rio Montana is a 4 bedroom 4 bath home designed to fully enjoy out of door living. Built completely without glass every room opens to the incredible ocean views. 'Green' design features such as
a planted roof for cooling and solar hot water were incorporated into the design. The master suite and main guest suite have king size beds with an additional single bed in the guest suite. The two other guest rooms have queen beds as do the two bedrooms in the guest house. All bedrooms have en suite baths. The house features both indoor and outdoor living room and dining room. The kitchen is well equipped with gas stove, dishwasher fridge and freezer and also opens to the pool deck and views. There are two outdoor grills.

In addition there is a fully air conditioned two bedroom guest house which may be rented with the main house for additional guests.

Guests have access to the Ranch's 20+ horses for trail riding on the property.

The two-tiered infinity pool is generous in size and seamlessly incorporated into the deck and living spaces. The mature tropical gardens are gorgeous and lush featuring flowering and fruit trees.

The villa comes with daily housekeeping and gardener
services.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: Our family is originally from New England but have lived for many years in the NYC area with a family home in Eastern PA. My husband works for an international consulting company and I run our ranch in Nosara. As a family we have spend a lot of time traveling in Central and South America but we always happy to come back to Nosara.

                      Why the Owner Chose Ostional:
                      Our love affair with Nosara began 25 years ago and our two twenty-something daughters consider Nosara their second home. We bought the Rancho Rio Montana property in the 1990's commited to maintaining the property as a vibrant working cattle ranch which supports several local families. In 2004 we finally decided it was time to build and we finished our home in 2008. We have hosted many wonderful gatherings of family and friends over the past five years.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                      Our house was built by us as a labor of love: from the 'eco friendly' features to the custom wood work built entirely with wood harvested on the Ranch. The tranquility and privacy of the Ranch location is unique and what we love the most. When asked, our family and virtually all of our guests will tell you that the horseback riding on the Ranch with the cowboys is there very favorite activity. As wonderful as it is to hang out at the beach there is something special about leaving all the heat and dust behind and heading up to the Ranch at the end of the day to enjoy the cooling breezes and spectacular sunsets.
