About the Property

3 BD, 2.5 BA, Sleeps 6, 35' Salt Water Pool, Outdoor Shower, Meditation Area,

Dos Palmeras is a new, executive holiday three-bedroom home located in the peaceful and secluded EE Las Huacas region of Nosara. A renovation in January 2016 joined the two guest bedrooms to the main house with a walk-through passageway and the driveway is now paved for easier access.
Nestled in the hills above beautiful Guiones beach, Dos Palmeras is perfect for individuals looking for peace and quiet while remaining just a short drive from an assortment of popular restaurants, shops, and the beach itself (approx. 3km). With a large kitchen/living room area, three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a 35 foot infinity-edge pool, this home is ideal for families or groups of friends looking for a small piece of paradise in Costa Rica’s Guanacaste region.
The beautiful and spacious granite kitchen, kept cool by a large vaulted ceiling and fans, is fully equipped, complete with a gas range and a large refrigerator. With a unique open-concept design, the living room and master bedroom open fully to the terrace and pool beyond, giving one the sense of living outdoors. The home can also be completely secured with sliding doors and roll down motorized curtains for safety purposes. We also have multiple safes for your valuables.

The dining area on the terrace offers a breezy, sheltered eating experience with views out to the infinity pool and surrounding jungle. Wildlife is abundant, with howler monkeys passing by daily.
The bedrooms are all outfitted with king size beds but those in both guestrooms can be separated into two twin beds, depending upon your needs. A/C is available in all of the bedrooms, but with the gentle hilltop breezes and the house’s open design, you might just find that you don’t even need it. The house sleeps six.
Other features include: wireless internet, TV with DVD player, BBQ, safety bars or roll down curtains on all openings, safes, and an alarm system that is monitored by phone by a security service. We have a large water tank, so when the water is turned off in Guiones for part of the day or night, which happens quite often in the High Season/Dry season, you will have water available all the time.

Costa Rica has recently implemented a 13% sales tax on short term rentals of 21 days or less which we will calculate at time of booking. This does not apply to longer term rentals.

Enjoy your stay in beautiful Nosara. Pura Vida

Playa Guiones

Car: Recommended

Playa Guiones/Nosara is famous for its 4 km long beach, with a steady break for surfing, its many yoga studios as well as the Yoga Institute, a healthy lifestyle with a varied assortment of menu items in the numerous restaurants and a good selection foods in the supermarkets. The zip-line at Miss Sky is reportedly the longest in Costa Rica.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We are a Canadian couple, an accountant and a chiropractor from Toronto who designed and built this home for our retirement. We enjoy having our two sons join us for vacations.

Why the Owner Chose Playa Guiones, Costa Rica:
Nosara and the people here are amazing. Beautiful town to relax and unwind, you may want to surf or yoga if you are so inclined, otherwise just enjoy the peace and tranquility.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our house, up in the hills above the beach receives cooling breezes and is peaceful and quiet but only a 5 minute drive to the main area for restaurants and shops. Neighbors are far enough away that you won't have to listen to their conversations and they to yours. You won't however escape the howler monkeys who will insist on being heard.
