About the Property
Private Poolside apartment, 3 Bedrooms , 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 6
Upon entering the exceptionally appointed home, you will be drawn to the spectacular panoramic vista of Guiones beach from 500 feet above, which is a mere 5 minute drive or 35 minute walk away. Sitting at eagle level, surrounded by manicured tropical gardens (1 1/2 acre property), as well as the natural lush vegetation of the 'Emerald Forest' you may see Howler monkeys as they wend their way through the monkey trail just at the edge of the house. They will greet you in the morning with a roar that depicts them as gorilla size, when they are really only the size of a cocker spaniel. It is quite exciting to view the traveling simians in their natural habitat, while seated comfortably on your private terrace beside the pool, with lap area and round infinity edge combined, sipping a cool cocktail. You will be awestruck in this enchanting and secluded setting, your private home away from home.
Every aspect of this newly completed home (not just a beach house) has been hand-crafted by local artisans and skilled workers. Its distinctive design and superior attention to detail will captivate you.
You will be dazzled by the amazing amenities, the superior attention to detail and the uncompromising quality of El Sueño de Mariana. You hardly need the air-conditioning, as the gentle breezes serve to cool as well as keep the insects away. The beach bugs and mosquitoes rarely make it to the 'Palace' on the hill. There are 23 paddle fans throughout the house.
There is a separate Rancho, which is a large open-air palm frond covered structure, where you will find hammocks, built-in settee, rocking chairs, built-in barbecue and bar area with 1/2 bath along side. The wide open hand polished stone flooring perfect for practicing yoga, reading, writing, painting, or just plain escaping to a quiet place. It is possible to set up cots here for an additional sleeping area.
This villa is versatile enough to accommodate a honeymoon couple or a complete wedding with 100 guests. The photos can't even begin to convey the magic and charm of El Sueño de Mariana. It has been described by many as the BEST house in Nosara. It may cost more, but it is WORTH it!
We prefer to rent the bottom floor as a poolside apartment with separate entrance, separate alarm pad, master bedroom with king (or separate twins) and double sink bathroom, 2nd bedroom with queen, and a 3rd bedroom with TV and a pull out couch. There is a full kitchen, laundry room, secure bodega for valuables, and wireless internet. Each bedroom has a bathroom and air conditioning. There is a long covered terace beside the pool, for those very sunny days, with designer fountain, dining area and other gathering spots. The double wide hall/art gallery has a day bed and could accomodate cots or single inflatable mattresses which are available.
You might prefer to rent the whole house at a much higher price. The upstairs at drive in level has a large master bedroom with double sink bathroom and walk-in closet and A/C. There is a 1/2 bath at the entry and a small library, living/dining room, large kitchen with Viking stove, and one level up is a round office with pull out couch and A/C. There is a very long covered terrace with dining and gathering areas for the 365day/year sunsets. And of course there is the incredible view of all six miles of Guiones beach white water.
If you choose to stay somewhere else in Nosara you might want to give us a call at 2682-0407 and see what you missed.
