Great for entertaining. Large living area with couch, chair and ottoman. The hammock is my husband's favorite resting place amongst the action.

The swimming pool is a built in babysitter that keeps our 5 kids busy all day, if they aren't on the beach surfing, snorkeling, shelling or just taking our dogs for a walk. The pool is large enough for lap swimming and deep enough for diving. My wife's favorite... lying in a tube sunbathing and reading.

Year Purchased: 1999
About the owner: My name is Steve Radl, and I am married to Danielle Radl, my college sweetheart. We have a large family, ranging from 23 years old to 10 years old, all the kids surf, and we decided that we wanted a beautiful vacation spot for our family to enjoy. We traveled around Costa Rica until we came to Nosara and after one night we knew this was it. We purchased our property and built our oasis.
Why the Owner Chose Playa Guiones, Costa Rica:
After growing up in the South Bay and Hawaii, My wife and myself wanted something that reminded us of our growing up years:) and Nosara seemed like the perfect paradise. It had all the tropical beauty of Hawaii and the infrastructure of the South Bay.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
One of our favorite things is the down time. The kids all have busy lives between a full academic schedule as well as the club sports that they play. The family gets to relax, reconnect, and just enjoy life.
