Property description

Built in 2005 , Dos Gatos is a unique home, designed perfectly for larger families or several people who want to vacation together but also appreciate privacy. The home has three separate buildings, with a large swimming pool in the middle. The house is centrally located in the quiet K section, situated between the Nosara Yoga Institute and Playa Guiones. The house is tucked away on a hilltop and although convenient to restaurants, stores and the beach, it is very private. Cool breezes waft through the house every day because of the higher elevation. It is one of the few properties within walking distance of the beach that has enough elevation for ocean views and the breeze.

In the afternoon, relax on your private patio, watching songbirds and jungle wildlife. Or sit by the pool enjoying a good book and the quiet surroundings of our private oasis. Or use the hammocks for lazy days and moonlit nights. When you're ready to hit the surf, kayak, fishing spots or walking trails, you are convenient to it all. The property is frequented by monkeys and many birds. There are jungle views from every window and terrace as well as the ocean views. The only views you don’t have are those of other houses. Because we don't have cats or dogs we have a profusion of wildlife that is wonderful to view. (There are no cats at Dos Gatos!)

The home contains three separate pods. Two buildings contain spacious bedroom/bathroom suites surrounded by patios, so you can sip your morning coffee watching the hummingbirds or monkeys before joining friends or family. The main building contains a living room, kitchen, bedroom and bath. Each of the two bedroom suites contains a king-size bed, a large, private terrace area and a full bath. There are two additional twin beds for sleeping. The bedroom in the main house contains a queen-size bed. The large kitchen has granite countertops and is well designed and equipped for entertaining and cooking. There is a bar area for eating. as well as an outside dining area on the terrace. We do have a phone, WI-FI and an IPOD/radio music system, but no TV/VCR. There are ceiling fans in every room and because the ceilings are 25 ft high, every room is very cool, and breezy. The property has several retaining walls which are 6-10 ft high; it is not recommended for very young children.

This house is an exceptional and unique property available for rental. We are part time residents of Nosara and the house was built and
equipped with living in mind, not just as a rental property.

The home is in the K section of Nosara within a five-minute walk of Playa Guiones. Nosara is known for its natural beauty and commitment to protecting its wildlife refuge. Nosara is also one of the best surfing spots in Central America. Sports fishing, river and ocean kayaking, and bird watching abound. 4WD vehicle recommended.

Cook available upon request.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2005

About: We loved Nosara when we came here in 1997. We rented a house for the first six years we came, usually for several months at a time. We built our home to include the wonderful aspects we had experienced in other homes here, while avoiding some of the downside aspects we had seen. The house was designed by us so is quite unique and conveys a sense of natural jungle living. Everyone who visits, rents or comes to see our home comments on it's elegance and spaciousness. We built the house for us to live in, not just to rent. We live in the house for several months per year, thus it is appointed in a manner that reflects a homeowner not a rental.

Why Nosara:
We did not choose to buy a vacation rental. We chose to build a dream house for ourselves and rent it when we are not in Costa Rica.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
privacy, both from neighbors, and from family or friends visiting. 3 separate units allows for unlimited privacy hilltop location with ocean views but 5 minute walk to the ocean gardens designed for tropical scents as well as appearance. Smells of ylang ylang, jasmine, and white ginger occasionally waft thru the property. profusion of wildlife
