Shanta Pura is an amazing, large, newly constructed home in the sought after "K Section" of the Guiones Beach area. There is no home like this closer to the beach. Location, location, location. Shanta Pura, built in a lush, tropical setting, was designed for entertaining and multiple families. This beautiful home, constructed in a Contemporary Balinese architecture by a local architect, is located just a short, 1-2 minute walk from the beach at Playa Guiones. No need to drive - just carry your boards and gear to the beach! (Very rare in this area). The most amazing feature of this home is the 'Colonial style' design. The entire house is built around a large pool, with the kitchen, dining and tv/family areas all OPEN to the pool and outdoors. There is no need for doors! However, if you want A/C, large sliding glass panels can be closed to keep you in the cool.
For security, the house is surrounded by a stunning 10' natural stone wall, in addition to 6' wire & post fencing that is covered with foliage and flowers. This unique design creates a very secure and very private setting, while at the same time you and your guests are able to enjoy the open airs and breezes of the Costa Rican climate. The design of this home sets it apart from any other home in Playa Guiones. Why would you come to Costa Rica and sit inside a house behind closed doors? In addition, the garden areas in and surrounding this home bring the beautiful landscape inside. This home has 2 master bedrooms (upstairs) and 2 bedrooms on the first floor, making it perfect for multiple families or couples. All 4 bedrooms can be set up as king beds, if preferred. The lower bedrooms have incredible outdoor showers. The chef's kitchen has every appliance and amenity you would ever need to prepare any meal. The large live-edge Guanacaste table seats 10-12. You can eat your meals in the open-air, next to the pool and gardens, while you stream music from your mobile device on the home sound system. All this, in an open yet extremely private setting, right next to the beach. It doesn't get any better than this in Playa Guiones.
** Private House Cook Included!! With each weekly rental, we include the services of our house chef for 5 meals, tenant's choice (food costs to be paid by the tenant). If you like the cooking, which we know you will, you can have her return to prepare as many meals as you wish, at a very reasonable rate.
