Property description

Located in the prestigious and most desirable quiet residential K Section, Built in 2014, with its own water tank and excellent security. El Santuario Playa Guiones is only a four-minute walk to the best Guiones surf break, yet is off the beaten path on the most desired private road in all of Playa Guiones, with great privacy, and no foot or car traffic near the property. This casual and beachy home has incorporated all that is unique and rustic about Costa Rica, combined with a light contemporary twist. Please feel free to call or message me with any questions you have, you can click on the "show phone number", under my photo. My name is Trisha, the property owner.

This open air, Balinese inspired home envelops you in lush jungle while you’re pampered with convenience and privacy. The dominant use of local teak and other local wood throughout, gives the home its rustic character, creating a contrasting canvas for the modern decor and accents. Locally harvested woods, polished concrete and contemporary silhouettes harmonize with nature and each other. Spacious and airy, the living area is ideal for entertaining, with a bar and dining table that each seat eight. The focal point of the home, this is the area that brings guests together and overlooks the lush gardens and dipping pool.

The dipping pool and patio is the spot to relax and cool off, after a day at the beach, or one of the many other excursions Nosara has to offer. Entirely surrounded by jungle, this is as private as it gets with plenty of outdoor seating, dining and lounging space. Earthy and casual, El Santuario, nonetheless provides you with a luxurious nature lover’s retreat located in one the best spots in Costa Rica.

The cool and bright master suite has a private entrance, and is complete with a private patio, beautifully and simply appointed bath constructed of polished concrete with a hand carved stone basin, modern crystal chandelier and private indoor and outdoor showers. The master bedroom is set for romance, perfect for both honeymooners, and parents alone time away from the kids. All lighting is on dimmable switches, including the bathroom and patio. There is a king size American pillow top bed, luxury Spalena sheets, flat screen TV, with 150 DVD collection, Wi-Fi, large cedar closet, and air conditioning.

Sleeping in the Treetop completely well-screened bedroom, which is cool and airy, it has ceiling and floor fan, with the howler monkeys, pizote and iguanas running free outside takes your breath away! Climb the spiral staircase to the Treetop bedroom made entirely of wood and be transported to a jungle paradise, an adventure for all ages. Warm and inviting, this is a unique and peaceful place to relax and dream. This bedroom has very good screens, you will not have a problem with any bugs up there.

The kitchen comes with everything you’ll need to make spectacular meals and enjoy dining al fresco. Costa Rican coffee and fresh fruit smoothies in the morning, fresh locally caught fish and veggies for dinner, all made in the comfort of your own open air jungle kitchen. There is also a comfortable table and chairs to dine inside the master in air conditioning. The grocery shopping can be done prior to your arrival, and there are local wonderful chefs available to cook meals and stock the fridge full of homemade natural foods, for those hunger pangs after a long surf, local adventure or yoga class.

Security is a priority with a fully integrated security system and 24 hour monitoring. Doors are heavy solid steel and there are 2 large bodegas on property for your secure storage, one has a dehumidifier and is large enough for all of your larger belongings, not just the small stuff. You can rest assured while off property, that all of your belongings are very secure. The large surfboard and bicycle bodega, surf shower and indoor and outdoor drying racks are the perfect surfers set up, to take advantage of one of the prime reasons to visit this area.

Two very important things about El Santuario; There is a very large water tank, so when the water is turned off in Guiones, which happens quite often in the High Season/Dry season for 12 -16 hours at a time daily, you will have water 24/7. Security was a top priority when building El Santuario, you will always feel comfortable knowing your belongings are safe. There is also no road dust near the property, since it is not on a main road, the property is located on a private street, no one can walk or drive near the property.

I accept payments through VRBO, PayPal, or personal check.

The world famous Nosara Yoga Institute, and many other yoga studios to choose from, like the brand new Bodhi Tree, is only a 10 minute walk. In the Swiss European designed downtown Guiones, there are lovely shops, grocery stores, and several other restaurants, only 15 minutes walking distance. The property has private parking for your rental car.

Heralded by National Geographic, Travel & Leisure, and CNN as one of the top 15 places to visit in 2014, and one of the best surfing destinations in the world, Playa Guiones is a nature and beach lovers playground. Both Playa Guiones and 30 minutes north at Playa San Juanillo are beautiful snorkeling spots and encourage you to enjoy all of your favorite water sports. Playa Ostional, the northern most beaches in Nosara, provides the incredible experience of sea turtles numbering in the hundreds of thousands lay their eggs while millions of baby turtles hatch.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Cleaning Fee $100
  • Refundable Damage Deposit $300

Notes:

2/15/16 The "Service Fee" Added on to my Rental Price has Nothing to do with me, VRBO/Homeaway has decided to charge all guests using their websites this fee.

I will not add on the 13% tax on rentals until the Costa Rican government enforces the tax payment. When it goes into enforcement, I will be adding the payment onto the 2nd payment due.

Rental is reserved only when rental agreement is signed and deposit is paid. There can be several people looking for the same time period, at the same time.

$100.00 Cleaning Fee, includes cleaning 2 times per week, plus final cleaning. Over 14 days $200.00 Cleaning fee.

$500.00 Damage Deposit completely refundable, held on your credit card or paid by check due 1 week before by check or PayPal, returned to you through PayPal, or by check in mail to your home, or your credit card through vrbo within 1 week after check out.

Rental prices quoted are for 4 adults, or a single family. Over 4 adults extra fee.

Credit Card Fees from VRBO will be deducted from the damage deposit on return. I have not raised my rental prices in 3 seasons, but will not cover the 2.9% fees I am charged for US credit cards, or the extra 1.5% charged on international credit cards on VRBO, as of January 1, 2015.

I accept payments by Personal Check, PayPal, and through VRBO.

Playa Guiones / 4-5 minute walk to surf break

Car: Not Necessary

The house is near the south Guiones beach entrance 'Bakers Beach' in the K Section. This is the quietest and most beautiful area on Playa Guiones. I love to walk out of the mangroves onto the sand at the beach entrance, take a left and walk a couple miles down the beach, there are very few people on this area of Playa Guiones. You will come to a lovely fishing village, lined with palm trees, where you can buy fresh fish in the mornings. There are also tide pools down left a little ways from the entrance, you will find great shallow pools to sit and swim in, and when the current is not strong, you will find all kinds of wonderful sea life while snorkeling. You will love the location of El Santuario, it is quiet and away from the bustle of town, yet it is not far to walk into town. The surf break near the Bakers Beach entrance is not crowded like the main break, which is only a few minutes up from the entrance to the right. Take the whole family out to enjoy the sunset, have a cold beer or a glass of wine and relax, or get in the water and enjoy the amazing sunset from your board.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I am pleased to be able to share my home in the jungle with you. I wish for you to have wonderful memories, that will last your lifetime. El Santuario was designed to have a feeling of closeness with the nature around you, bringing a true Costa Rican adventure.

Why the Owner Chose Playa Guiones, Costa Rica:
I looked at properties all over central and south America, before finding this special spot. I knew the first 60 seconds I stood on the property, this was the exact spot to build my new home. El Santuario is located on one of the very best lots in all of Playa Guiones, private, yet very close to the beach. I hope you will also feel the sense of wellbeing on this special spot, that I do.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
One of the greatest things about this property, there is no road dust near El Santuario, which can be a big problem in Nosara. No one can walk or drive near the property, yet it is very close to the beach. There is a lot of natural jungle around the property, on a daily basis you will have monkeys, pizotes, and many other animals passing through. You cannot see the ocean through the jungle, but you hear it loud and clear.
