Nosara house description

Shanta Pura is an amazing, large, newly constructed home built in a lush, tropical setting, designed for entertaining and multiple families. This beautiful home, constructed in a Contemporary Balinese architecture by a local architect, is located just a short, 1-2 minute walk from the beach at Playa Guiones. No need to drive - just carry your boards and gear to the beach! (Very rare in this area). The most amazing feature of this home is the 'Colonial style' design. The entire house is built around a large pool, with the kitchen, dining and tv/family areas all OPEN to the pool and outdoors. There is no need for doors! However, if you want A/C, large sliding glass panels can be closed to keep you in the cool.

For security, the house is surrounded by a stunning 10' natural stone wall, in addition to 6' wire & post fencing that is covered with foliage and flowers. This unique design creates a very secure and very private setting, while at the same time you and your guests are able to enjoy the open airs and breezes of the Costa Rican climate. The design of this home sets it apart from any other home in Playa Guiones. Why would you come to Costa Rica and sit inside a house behind closed doors? In addition, the garden areas in and surrounding this home bring the beautiful landscape inside. This home has 2 master bedrooms (upstairs) and 2 bedrooms on the first floor, making it perfect for multiple families or couples. All 4 bedrooms can be set up as king beds, if preferred. The lower bedrooms have incredible outdoor showers. The chef's kitchen has every appliance and amenity you would ever need to prepare any meal. The large live-edge Guanacaste table seats 10-12. You can eat your meals in the open-air, next to the pool and gardens, while you listen to music over your phone or i-Pod. All this, in an open yet extremely private setting, right next to the beach. It doesn't get any better than this in Playa Guiones.

** Free WiFi and Bluetooth stereo. Surfboards and bicycles are also available if requested.

              Miss Sky Canopy Tour - Zip Lining / Canopy Tours. Located approximately 5 minutes (drive) from the house. Miss Sky is known as the longest Canopy Tour in the world (the next longest is less than 50% of the length of Miss Sky Canopy).

              All lines are double wired and double harnessed with secondary oversized, sturdy cables and all redundant equipment of the highest quality. The resulting ride is completely smooth with no spinning and hands completely free of the line if desired, ensuring a smooth stop at the arrival pads.

              Ostional Turtle Nesting Refuge. The Ostional National Wildlife Refuge is located approximately 15 minutes (drive) is one of the two most important areas in the world for nesting of the Olive Ridley turtle. Impressive 'arrivals' of these massive and simultaneous nesting of hundreds of thousands of sea turtles generally take place once a month, for three to five days at this beach. This is the only place in Costa Rica where you can observe sea turtles nesting during the entire year with a high probability of success, even on nights without 'arrivals'.
