About the Property

4 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, Sleeps 8

Vista Bonita. Experience complete serenity from the 900 sq ft. covered terrace overlooking a saltwater infinity pool and sweeping ocean panorama.

This lovely 4 bedroom 3.5 bath home is tastefully decorated with a Feng Shui influence, custom made furniture and beautiful fabrics in soothing colors.

An ideal tropical retreat, the home features a floor plan with an open living/dining area complemented with a soaring teak ceiling and a modern, fully equipped kitchen.

In addition to the living and dining areas, the air-conditioned master bedrooms open onto the secluded terrace and pool with private baths and king sized beds. The third bedroom is air conditioned with a private bath and four bunk beds and the fourth bedroom has a single bed and half bath.

Cooling breezes gently circulate throughout the house with ceiling fans in every room for added comfort.

Additional conveniences are a large laundry room, two outside showers and high speed Wireless Internet service

Unusually private, with uncommonly spacious and light filled rooms. A mixture of antique, classic and handmade furnishings make this home unique.There are many wonderful restaurants in the area, both casual and more upscale, in which to dine and a modern supermarket is close by for stocking up the kitchen with fresh local produce.

You will feel completely safe in the secure, elegant gated community of Vista Royal.

Enjoy swimming or snorkeling on nearby on secluded beaches, fish, take a canopy tour or surf the famous Playa Guiones a short drive away. The water is one of the 2 warmest spots in the Pacific. Surfing schools offer instruction for kids and adults. Do yoga at the Nosara Yoga Institute or Harmony Hotel, get a relaxing massage, or just relax and read amid lush plantings with ocean, jungle and mountain views in the upscale, gated community of Vista Royal, away from bugs, heat, dust and traffic! Because we are in such a high location, you will need a car for short drives to beaches and restaurants.

Wake up to the sounds of the ocean, monkeys and parrots as you enjoy your delicious Costa Rican coffee, fresh pineapple, and local bakery delights as you watch the waves breaking on the Pacific. Or see the spectacular sunsets off the terrace over a dinner of fresh vegetables and fish from the local market.

Owner info

About the owner: Both of us are avid travelers, my life as a Ford model allowed me to enjoy locations all over the world, and Norm's career in sales in the semi conductor area often took him to Europe and Asia and around the U.S. We met at Middlebury College in Vermont, and finally got reacquainted and married in 1993, deciding to live in the beautiful Hamptons on the East End of Long Island, where we are active in community projects. Between us we have 9 grandchildren, spread out from California, to Alaska, to Montana.

Why the Owner Chose Guanacaste, Costa Rica:
We loved the beauty and unspoiled quality of the environment of Nosara and Playa Guiones and Garza. The people are so kind and helpful, full of joy. The combination of the ocean and mountains reminded us of Hawaii. The restaurants are inexpensive, with sophisticated, delicious food. The quality and standards of the Vista Royal development also had great bearing on our commitment to build and success of our endeavors.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Contrary to properties closer to Playa Guiones, we are in a SAFE, gated community, enjoying the most fantastic views, with wonderful, helpful neighbors, near great restaurants, grocery stores, plus Playa Garza's incredible tide pools. A short drive from Playa Guiones tide pools and surfing beach. The house is fully equipped to make your stay enjoyable, comfortable beds and lounges, plus a wonderful cook and babysitter are available.
