Overview

About the property

5 Huge Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths With Great Pool! A Few Minutes Walk To The Beach!

I truly love the Nosara/Playa Guiones community. Many vacationers I speak with feel the same magic and uniqueness about the area.

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!

About David Pokorny

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.

David Pokorny purchased this villa in 2014

Why David Pokorny chose Nosara

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.

What makes this villa unique

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

Guestbook comments from the manager

Hello Dave,

We just returned from CR and I would like to thank you for the time we spent at your home in Playa Guiones. The house is beautiful and we enjoyed every moment we stayed there. We liked rooms and common spaces. The swimming pool was great and the garden around the house not only offered a variety of flowers but it also attracted many beautiful birds. Getting to the beach was very easy, just a short walk from the house.



We did a lot of interesting things in CR. including a guided visit to the tropical forest where we found many howling monkeys and iguanas, a trip to the Rincon the la Vieja volcano where we enjoyed the hot springs pools and the mud baths. But the highlight of the trip was zip-linning over the dense rain forest. We went with the Sky Lady group and they we excellent. We had a great time with all the nice young guides that assisted us getting thru the 13 zip-line runs.



All in all, we had an unforgettable time in Guanacaste and you and your house made it possible.

Dave, thank you so much again for your help!

Alberto

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My family of 5 along with a close friend rented Verano Eterno for two weeks at the end of February. About the house, what can I say….I fell in love. We all did !! There is something so special about this place. I don’t know if it’s the greenery, or the amazing woodwork; the stonework or the pool. In general, its just the vibe. It’s just so peaceful, and it has so much attention to detail. It gives you everything you need,

and nothing you don’t. It’s just gorgeous, a perfect blend of extravagance and simplicity.

We really loved the way the house flowed. My son was able to have so many friends stop by to visit, yet the space was ample enough that they were never a bother. We brought a mini projector with us and screened movies in the upstairs living room…..AMAZING ! We cooked out on the grill, and we spent endless hours

at night just gazing at the starts and the lit up house. What a dream !!! I could have stayed there forever.

The house is part of the Nosara Beach Club, so it is very private and away from the hustle and bustle of the main roads, yet it is still close enough to both town and the beach. The property management team is very responsive and was available instantly to answer any questions or help with planning.

David, the owner, is a great guy. Really willing to go the extra mile to make our dream come true.

My only complaint about the house....... is that I don't live there year round.

Birthday Surf Trip

  • 5 of 5

We rented Casa Verano Eterno for my wife's birthday. She is a big surfer and the location of the home was perfect. We had a group of 5, so two bedrooms were not used, but were very nice. The beach is a short walk away from a private access for the Beach Club this home is a part of. We rented bikes. Restaurants and all amenities are close. No more than a 5 minute bike ride or 10-12 minute walk to yoga, surf shops, restaurants and anything you need. Front courtyard has a large gate that uses lockboxes for access, so security is good for bikes and surf boards.Check-in was easy, as was check-out.

The home is set up for enjoying the outdoor spaces and the living room has three sides that open up and let the breeze through the room during the day. Beds are very comfortable and the house is well appointed. We had a great time, and would recommend to anyone that wants some privacy, but with access to everything. Like anywhere in Costa Rica, bug spray is a must. :)

We are already talking about another visit next February.

Girls Crew

  • 5 of 5

I just want to start by writing that I love Nosara! Me and seven girlfriends had such a blast staying in this home we were able to cook meals in a well equipped kitchen and the pool was such an added bonus to cool off from the heat! The beach is just a simple stroll away! We felt very safe and secure behind a beautiful wooden gate that locks! The landscape was lush and tropical and absolutely beautiful! Checking in and checking out was very simple and very well explained and the owner always responded very quickly for anything we needed! I highly recommend this home for any group of friends or family stay .

Awesome rental for Family

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Endless Summer for a week with our two 9-year old kids and we had a blast. The house was amazingly beautiful and was essentially brand new.

Great location, just a short walk to the beach, always felt very safe and secure. The property manager was extremely attentive and responsive and had some wonderful restaurant recommendations as well. The owner was responsive and was easy to deal with.

We loved the house, it was very clean upon check in and the beds were super comfortable. The location was perfect...so close to the beach and we really enjoyed being able to see a lot of Costa Rican wildlife.

We loved the area and this house in particular and we cannot wait to come back to visit!

Ideal Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

A well situated house walking distance from the beach yet quiet from street noise and traffic. The design of the house is such that sounds from the main area of the house do not extend through the private bedrooms. All of the bedrooms have great air conditioning.

The owner uses a fantastic property management company that is very responsive to requests and questions.

Everything in the house is in great working condition. It is a very comfortable place to stay on a vacation.

I would highly recommend this property as a rental for ANY vacation traveler in Nosara.
