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!

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.

Pura Vida

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with some of our friends stayed at Casa Verano Eterno. The house was amazing! We had an unbelievable time and really fell in love with Nosara. Not only was the house comfortable and functional, l but it was so close to everything that getting around was very easy. On top of all that we felt extremely safe! We were also there in the "rainy" season and the weather was great! It rained a little in the morning and a little bit in the afternoon, which was just enough to cool things down a bit while also giving us plenty of sun for the day!

Pura Vida

My first time to Costa Rica was to vIsit Dave and his beautiful home!! I have know Dave since high school and have heard him talk about Costa Rica for years!!

Nosara was the perfect place to visit and get the true feeling of Coasta Rica!! The house is within walking distance to the beach and town!! There are plenty of great restaurants , bars and just enough shopping!!

Casa Verano Eterno is amazing for a group of friends or family ! Having the pool at the house is the perfect way to cool off at during the afternoon!!

Dave is the best host!! Look forward to my next trip!! Thank you ☀️

Perfect Luxury retreat for a birthday week

  • 5 of 5

I chose Nosara to spend a week with 7 friends for a birthday celebration. This place was incredible. We walked to the beach every day, dipped in the pool every night, cooked amazing meals, and slept like babies in the rooms. The indoor/outdoor shower was a huge hit. The surfboard closets were incredibly convenient. The small surf town of Guiones, was the perfect retreat. The Yoga palace is beyond anything I've ever seen. I can't wait for an excuse to go back. Thanks!

Pura Vida Awesomeness

  • 5 of 5

I've been going to Playa Guiones for over 8 years, and have always stayed in the hotels and retreat centers. This was my first time staying in a house, and Casa Verano Eterno made me realize that I've wasted all those years. Homes like this one are the reason to go go Guiones. Everything is nearby, but you're removed from the hustle and bustle, and there's even a super secret path to the beach that is a great way to avoid holiday crowds. The pool is perfectly sized, and the AC in the rooms is a godsend during the warm nights. Can't wait to go back!
