Property description

Shangri-la is our 'Earthly Paradise'; we can't guarantee you'll live beyond your normal life span, but a stay here will ensure you enjoy it. (Lost Horizon. James Hilton).

Our house was built in 2011, it is modern, open plan, easy-breezy living. We love to be up on the hill where we enjoy the view from every room and also the peacefulness and privacy our location provides. The Master suite has a king bed, all glass wall with walk out access facing the pool and ocean, an en-suite with double vanities and a shower that opens up to the view. The 2 guest Bedrooms have king beds and a separate toilet and bathroom with double vanities and a shower. There is an upstairs balcony and a large landing. Downstairs the bi-fold glass doors off the Living area open the entire house up to the large veranda. On the veranda are comfortable chairs, a dining table and chairs as well as a BBQ area with seating. The Kitchen is open to the Dining room and Living room and the view makes cooking a pleasure. The house is well ventilated, as a result we hardly need the air conditioners, but each Bedroom has a unit and ceiling fans are located throughout the house. We have a weekly maid service, but can arrange more frequent visits as well as a cook if desired. Overlooking the view is a infinity pool with benches to sit and soak in your surroundings.

Shangri-la is perfectly situated for a luxury, private getaway. Located high on the hill in Las Huacas, you can enjoy all the amenities of Guiones and Pelada, but just a 3 minute drive up the hill from the beach ensures cool breezes, lazing in the sun and swimming in the pool with a beautiful view of the ocean and spectacular sunsets. You are surrounded by the unspoilt nature of Nosara with many activities to keep you busy, like surfing, yoga, zip-lining, paddle boarding, horseback riding, turtle watching, or you can do as little as you'd like, enjoy a cocktail and just relax!


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2011

About: Originally from Durban, South Africa and now live in Annapolis, Maryland. During our winters, we longed for warm weather and the ocean and found everything we wished for in Nosara.

Why Playa Guiones, Costa Rica:
We love to have a bright, sunny, ocean view away from the crowds, while also enjoying the peace and tranquility our property affords.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We had our home built and were very involved in the design, bringing ideas from our travels to South Africa and Indonesia.
