About the Property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths (Sleeps 7)

This secluded villa on a hilltop overlooking the Pacific is surrounded by thousands of acres of virgin forest and is perfect for three couples or a large family. The main house has two master suites, 3 1/2 baths & a small media room. The living area opens to a “Lake Como” style veranda that looks down on a beautiful cove and also has spectacular mountain views….as does the open air covered dining area. The large pool is set between the casita and the main house. The casita has the identical views with the third bedroom/bath and is complete with kitchen & sitting area. If you are looking for a real getaway that is totally private with fantastic views, you will not find anything better. There is a guarded entry at the entrance to the project and a 4 kilometer scenic drive to the house. We are located half way between Nosara & Samara and only 3 kilometers from the small fishing village of Garza. The private beach inside the project is just a 1 kilometer walk down the hill from our house. If you like tennis, horse back riding, surfing, canopy rides, or playing bridge it’s just a 25 minute drive to Nosara. There are several small quaint restaurants in Garza, but many in the near by tourist towns of Nosara and Samara. Get away from the tourist scene and have a secluded and romantic setting only minutes from restaurants and fun activities. The regular price includes both the main house and the casita. Contact owner if you are wanting to rent only the main house. There will be a caretaker on the property and maid that comes twice weekly and a resident dog.

Located inside a 1300 acre project, we are 4 kilometers from our gated entrance at the main road. It is so quiet here that the only outside noise would be from the birds & monkeys waking you in the morning. A short walk down the hill from the house you can experience a totally private beach that has no public entrance.We moved to Nosara 18 years ago when it was just a quiet little town. We fell in love with the beauty of the landscape, the friendly people, and the peaceful life style. With all the development and now a year round tourist season, it is no longer that quant little town. So we found an ideal location outside of Garza with the beauty and quaintness we appreciate. The lots are 2+ acres, cannot be subdivided, have underground utilities, and are surrounded by virgin forest. There are balmy breezes off the ocean and it’s nice not to have to contend with the dust from the dirt roads. We enjoy being away from the hustle and bustle of a tourist town and still having all the amenities with less than a 30 min. drive. The only sounds are from nature and the ocean waves hitting the shore. Overlooking the ocean and within walking distance of a totally private beach is so special. We have great sunsets and sunrises. Our spectacular view was just icing on the cake. Our home is secluded and private and inaccessible to uninvited guests with a locked and manned entrance. If you value your privacy and security, it is the perfect location.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2008

About the owner: Jim is a retired architect and builder from California and Linda is a retired teacher and mortgage banker from Texas.

Why the Owner Chose Guanacaste, Costa Rica:
We actually saw this property on horseback ten years before it came up for sell. We fell in love with the fantastic view of the ocean and the cove. The project is so unusual because of the large lots (2+ acres) and the underground utilities, both very unusual for this area. It is just so private and secluded with a white sand beach inside the project that has no public access.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
We designed the house to capture the spectacular views and prevailing breezes from the ocean. We enjoy the privacy of our location and the beach that has no public access. We have monkeys in the trees on occasion and frogs croaking at night in the rainy season. There are beautiful sunsets and sunrises. We know we have the best of Costa Rica. It is really paradise.
