About the Property
3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
There are many activities that can be booked in Nosara including deep-sea fishing, surf lessons, monkey tours, river tours, horseback riding, canopy tours, and turtle tours on Ostional Beach. But if you are like us, you will find that you have everything you need right here on the hill. If you need to work and stay connected to the world, we also have Claro satellite TV and Internet access (4 Mbps).
The house is large, with cathedral ceilings and screened-in windows for ventilation. Together with the wrap-around porch, the house stays very cool. Although there is an air conditioning unit in the private casita, we rarely use it. This is the perfect house for a couple or couples, or a small family with adult kids. We do not recommend the home for small children due to the openness with the pool and nature. There is also a gourmet kitchen with all amenities. If rugged luxury is your cup of tea, then this is the place for you.
For people interested in mind/body wellness, the area is one the Blue Zone's in the world, featured by National Geographic. A Blue Zone is a region of the world where people commonly live past 100 due to the area's healthy environment and living styles. The Nosara area is also home to the Blue Spirit Retreat Center, affiliated with New York's Omega Center, and the Nosara Yoga Institute. The home is an easy (ten-minute) driving distance of both of these places and offers a peaceful setting to return home to after classes.
Organic vegetables and meats are available on weekends at the farmer's market.

Why the Owner Chose Guanacaste, Costa Rica:
The home is located in Garza, which is about 6 miles south of Guiones beach, so if you want to be within walking (200 meters) of the ocean, this home is not for you. However, please note, homes near the water tend not to have cool breezes or vistas of the ocean. They also have more mosquitoes and during dry season/high season, you will be inundated with dust from the dirt roads. I owned property in Nosara, but the dust was too much, and so we moved to the Vista Royal community in the hills above Playa Garza ... overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Vista Royal is an exclusive development with 10 homes in a gated community with multiple levels of soft-security. The community overlooks Playa Guiones and/or Playa Garza...the home is near Blue Spirit (~3 miles), Nosara Yoga Institute (~5 miles), and the center of Guiones (about 6 miles). The home overlooks the Pacific Ocean and is ~1.5 miles from Garza beach and 5 miles from Nosara beaches.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home is semi-eco friendly with gravity fed water but water pressure is not an issue, and solar hot water...never a problem for showers, etc., but excessive clouds will result in lower water temperatures. In addition, we get wonderful ocean/jungle breezes and only have air conditioning in the room that is detached from the main house (casita) for those who cannot do without, although we rarely use it. We are amazed at how few mosquitoes and other annoying bugs are up here and it is not problem keeping the doors open in the evening. We have a newly constructed jacuzzi (again, solar heated), and can sleep 6 in three bedrooms (master has a CA-King, the other room has two full-sized beds that can be combined to form a King, and the other bedroom is 20 feet detached from the main house and has a Queen bed). In addition to a wrap-around veranda with many seating options, there are two terraces: a solarium and a shade deck--both overlooking the canopies and ocean.
