Property description

I wanted the main feature of the home to be based on outdoor living. I live in a cold climate where I spend 7 months of the year inside-yeah not fun. So when I designed the house, I didn't want any interior hallways, which made each bedroom separate from each other. This also allows for privacy come bedtime or waking up in the morning (no one else has to be woken up accidentally by your 5 am dawn patrol sesh!). 3 of the bedrooms have their own bathroom, while 2 bedrooms share an adjacent bathroom. All of the bathrooms have rain showers, as is the outdoor shower! There is a wave shaped endless pool which is basically a 'pool treadmill' allowing you to swim in place at a predetermined pace (great for triathletes!). The back of the home has a breathtaking view of the mountains in the distance while still only being 5 minute walk to the beach! All door locks are digital combination locks and each bedroom comes equipped with a digital safe. There is an 8 foot tall security/privacy wall so you will not be bothered by unwanted visitors. The house is in the Guiones Beach Club which is the only gated community in Playa Guiones. It has regular guards patrolling the grounds for added security.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: I live in Long Beach, New York and grew up going to the beach every weekend. From the time I was 14 years old, I asked my parents to buy me a surfboard for every birthday and every Christmas. Each time they said no. So the 1st thing I bought myself out of college (even before a car!) was a 7'2' used surfboard. A few years later, was my first trip out of the United States to Mexico and that is when the travel bug to Central America and the eventual dream to buy property and someday live in Central America hit me. Ever since that trip I have scoured real estate websites all around Latin America to find affordable yet perfect beach front property.

Why Nosara:
I came to Costa Rica for the 1st time in 2001 and to Playa Guiones in 2002. As soon as I came to Guiones, my friends and I were in love with the place! We originally planned to surf different locations all around the Guanacaste peninsula, but once we stayed in Guiones for the 1st 2 days of our trip, it was a unanimous decision to stay in Guiones! Unfortunately due to losing my surf buds to marriage, I didn't manage to get to Guiones again until 2009 which is when I bought this property. I loved the fact that it was in a gated community with a security gate and guards walking around to ensure the security of the homes in the development. I have been coming here 50-60 days per year for the past 4 years and people ask me if it's 'safe'. It is totally safe in Playa Guiones. No one will hurt you (well unless you're an asshole in the water lol). The thing is that the locals are relatively poor in comparison to the visitors and visitors leave their laptops, purses, ipads, etc out in the open. If you do that, someone is going to be opportunistic and break into the home (EVEN IF YOU ARE THERE they will sneak in, grab your shit, and sneak out!). Put everything valuable or electronic in the safes!

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
I wanted the main feature of the home to be the outdoors. I live in a cold climate where I spend 7 months of the year inside-yeah not fun. So when I designed the house, I didn't want any interior hallways, which made each bedroom separate from each other. This also allows for privacy come bedtime or waking up in the morning (no one else has to be woken up accidentally by your 5 am dawn patrol sesh!). 3 of the bedrooms have their own bathroom, while 2 bedrooms share an adjacent bathroom. All of the bathrooms have rain showers, as is the outdoor shower! There is an wave shaped endless pool which is basically 'pool treadmill' allowing you to swim in place at a predetermined pace (great for triathletes!). The back of the home has a breathtaking view of the mountains in the distance while still only being 3 minute walk to the beach!
