Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are 3 Brooklynites (an artist/designer, an animation producer and a surprisingly cool lawyer) who first experienced Nosara a few years ago and have been coming back repeatedly since. It is just that kind of place: once you visit and you want to return. We have made Casa Calmate into a stylish and functional home we look forward to visiting as much as possible. But also a place we are proud to share with our families, our friends and others looking for a cool and comfortable pad from which to explore Playa Guiones.

Why the Owner Chose Nosara:
Casa Calmate was completely renovated in late 2013. We gutted and replaced everything…from the electrical to the plumbing to the fixtures to the septic system. The house now has a modern and spacious kitchen, dark stone countertops and a large gas stove with a full size oven. We like to cook, so it is well stocked with pots/pans, cookware and utensils. The bathroom has been fully renovated and enlarged, with slate tile flooring and white subway tile, new fixtures and a large shower (which has a bench, as vacations should include sitting in the shower is our firm opinion). There are two bedrooms: The master, which has a queen bed built out of teak, spacious closets, a full length mirror and luxurious bedding. The second bedroom, which is smaller, has a a cool custom designed built-in floating platform single bed, constructed from teak and steel. There is a/c in the bedrooms, new ceiling fans, new windows, an alarm system, security bars and inset lighting. We have custom built the furniture throughout, including a huge comfy sofa (which can easily double as a single bed), coffee table and side tables. The real heart of the property though, and where we enjoy spending most of our time, is the outsized outdoor covered patio. It is furnished with an amazing Indonesian day bed, large enough for 4 adults, teak picnic table for outdoor dining covered by a ceiling inlaid with tropical hardwood, industrial ceiling fans and accent lighting. Also a sweet hammock. The covered patio leads to a blue tiled pool well sized for the house featuring a large bench running its length for in-pool chilling. The pool is surrounded by a sun drenched patio area perfect for tanning and sipping tropical cocktails. Beyond the pool is an outdoor shower, inlaid with slate tile and affixed with a rainfall style shower head. The pool area is framed by banana trees and planters of flowers and colorful native plants.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Casa Calmate is set on a gorgeous and private property in the “G” Section, right in the heart of Playa Guiones. 2/3rds of the lot is a tropical garden, with hibiscus, rare pechote trees, wild flowers and natural plants. The rear of the property backs up to a protected nature preserve (originally intended to be a fancy golf course) ,which is now a howler monkey highway, providing an unusual level of privacy and a close connection to the area’s natural beauty and wildlife.
