Property description

I truly love the Nosara/Playa Guiones community. Many vacationers I speak with feel the same magic and uniqueness about the area. As such, I decided to try and make a small difference in the community by making a commitment to make a donation per every rental to one of 3 local charities.
1) Costas Verdes (Green Coasts in English) - http://www.costasverdes.org/ - these guys along w community members have planted over 300 trees on the beaches of Guiones

2)Nosara Refuge for Wildlife - http://www.nosararefugeforwildlife.org/ - Brenda Bombard started this organization which is responsible for saving many animals' lives, mostly our beloved Howler monkeys.

3) Nosara Animal Care - http://www.nosaraanimalcare.com/ - care for abandoned animals who are in search of forever homes. They have a NO-KILL policy. Their rescue/rehab program takes all at-risk animals, restores them to health, and houses them until they are adopted.

Sorry Now About the House
The house is in the Guiones Beach Club which is the only gated community adjacent to the beach in Playa Guiones or in the area! It has a private entrance to the beach, as well as a guard house to allow only homeowners and renters into the community. For added security, the guards make regular rounds at night.

I wanted the main feature of the home to be based on outdoor living. When I designed the house, I didn't want any interior hallways, which made each bedroom separate from each other. This also allows for privacy come bedtime or waking up in the morning (no one else has to be woken up accidentally by your 5 am dawn patrol sesh!). 3 of the bedrooms have their own bathroom, while 2 bedrooms share an adjacent bathroom. All of the bathrooms have rain showers. There is a 7 foot deep wave shaped pool which most everyone loves because it stays cool in the heat of the day! The back of the home has a breathtaking view of the mountains in the distance while still only being 8 minute walk to the beach! Each bedroom comes equipped with a digital safe. There is an 8 foot tall security/privacy wall with gated entrances so you will not be bothered by unwanted visitors. Also during the dry season, there are usually water shortages which cause the local water authority to cut off service for hours at a time. I have a 1500 gallon backup cistern so my house will never be out of water! I believe the pictures of the home speak better than my words! Everyone who has stayed so far has loved it!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: I live in Long Beach, New York and grew up going to the beach every weekend. From the time I was 14 years old, I asked my parents to buy me a surfboard for every birthday and every Christmas. Each time they said no. So the 1st thing I bought myself out of college (even before a car!) was a 7'2' used surfboard. A few years later, was my first trip out of the United States to Mexico and that is when the travel bug to Central America and the eventual dream to buy property and someday live in Central America hit me. Ever since that trip I have scoured real estate websites all around Latin America to find affordable yet perfect beach front property.

Why Playa Guiones, Costa Rica:
THIS IS THE ONLY PRIVATE COMMUNITY ADJACENT TO THE BEACHES OF NOSARA! I loved the fact that it was in a gated community with a security gate and guards walking around to ensure the security of the homes in the development AND THAT I CAN WALK TO THE BEACH! I have been coming here 50-60 days per year for the past 5 years and the more time I spend in Nosara the more I want to spend even more time here. It truly is a magical place. I will say this - please do not leave anything valuable out in the home. Make sure to put everything (ipads, iphones, laptops, wallets, purses, etc) away when you step away from the home. even if it is for 10 minutes. I have included every security measure I can think of. However, these guys are geniuses when it comes to doing a quick break in to take tourists valuables. just because there are bars on the doors and windows do not be lulled into a false sense of security.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
I designed this house myself (obviously with help from the architect and builder). This is my vision. There are a lot of new houses being built with a modern flair around Nosara. Personally, I have always liked colonial Spanish stucco homes (my home in NY is a Spanish stucco home as well). So I wanted the home to be designed as a contemporary Spanish colonial home which is what my architect did. High ceilings which allow for a lot of air circulation to keep things cool. Below are some of the features of the home that I think make it different than most if not all rental homes in Nosara separate domiciles-privacy and quiet when you need it or want it (each bedroom is its own unit) each mattress is a 4 Seasons mattress as are the pillows providing all guests with an excellent sleeping experience! roomy common areas great wave shaped pool-the waves provide seating around the pool edge great deck with mountain views off of master bedroom (I suggest sleeping with the a/c off and the French doors open to see the sun rise over the mountains!) digital safes in each bedroom (usually there is 1 safe per HOUSE!) 8' tall security/privacy wall with gated entrances 5000 gallon underground cistern so no matter the local water shortage, the house will always have running water! the gated community (for now) is mostly empty so you feel like you're on your own private estate/park exquisite wood carvings made by local artisan above all doors rain showers in each bathroom 2 outdoor showers separate surfboard storage shed beautiful landscaping (of course its costa rica!) the best of the best appliances (great coffee & espresso maker; refrigerator w ice machine). a/c in each bedroom
