Property description

This is a beautiful,large, secluded,safe, family compound/home is located on a private cul du sac in the JUNGLE very, very near the beach. A two minute walk down a quiet rd to the white sand beach of Playa Guiones, with a secluded surf brake (most of the time i surf with my kids or with DR Steve) The home is Surrounded by 1200 meters of lush gardens.

Wildlife galore: monkeys, pezotes, armadillos, raccoons, various types of birds, lots butterflys, iguanas, porcupines, lizards, geckos, frogs, and even a stray turtle or two! You can walk to the the excellent consistent surf and beautiful white sand beaches of Playa Guiones/Nosara.(Did i say that already L.O.L)

This property includes a 2nd level master suite,and lower bunk room with 2 bunk beds, 4 beds in all (great for big kids) screened in or pull the big steel doors shut,Very Large swimming pool, and a unique 'Rancho style kitchen' next to the pool. The large private master suite with master bath is detached from kitchen area. Suite includes California King bed, and a full sized bed if needed for small children. Ceiling fans, A/C,and High speed wireless internet.(works all the way too the Rancho) Sleeps 4 comfortably.

Rancho located next to the swimming pool. This is the heart of our home. All the action happens here.... family style dining on large handmade picnic table (pechote) that seats 10, large full sized kitchen with all amenities for cooking gourmet meals or baking! Great for entertaining. Large living area with couch, chair and ottoman. The hammock is my husband's favorite resting place amongst the action. Above the kitchen is the second bedroom/sleeping quarters. Sleeps 3/5 If needed (2 full sized beds, one single). The roof is the highlight of this structure... lined with cedar and topped with palm.

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. Two outside showers for rinsing upon returning from your surf sessions. One cold, one hot! Parking is available inside the property gates under a carport or in driveway.

Property is maintained by our loyal gardener, Rudolfo. Additional cleaning and babysitting is available by our long term nanny and housekeeper, Jackie, for an additional $300/week (8-5pm mon-fri) and boy is she an incredible cook!

Playa Guiones is a unique community that offers a variety of activities for everyone. The Nosara Yoga Institute is walking distance from the property, offering daily yoga classes as well as Teacher Training courses. The town of Nosara is 4 km from the beach with our own town doctor, Kattia Porras MD as well as 3 super markets, fish market and vegetable store. Playa Ostinol is a 20 minute drive away to experience the hatching or nesting of sea turtles on a reserve. Deep sea fishing is only 15 minutes south of Playa Guiones at Garza.

The entire area is very kid friendly and appealing to visitors of all ages. Great restaurants include: la Dulce Vida (Italian), Marlin Bills (steak/fish), Cafe Paris (typical food/pizza/pastries), Robin's Ice Cream/Espresso Bar, Fooney's Mexican Food, Casa Romantica (swiss) and many more!

Daily commuter flights from San Jose offered on Sansa & Nature Air. Only 2 hours south of Liberia International Airport.

Owner info

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.
