About the property

3 Master Suites with bath, "Great room" with full kitchen, large patio and pool.

Villa Gullwing is an ocean view home in the prestige 'Las Huacas' EE section of Playa Guiones. Ideal to spend time with family and friends. It takes you only 5-6 minutes by car to "Playa Guiones" or "Playa Pelada", shops and most restaurants. With our hilltop location, you can feel the cooler ocean breezes.

The property offers all the comforts you expect in a luxury villa.

Amenities include new flat screen TVs in every room, Cable TV with many US stations, wireless internet, house phone for local calls, 'MagicJack' connected phone for free calls to US & Canada. Every room features high ceilings, super quiet remote controlled AC units, and Hunter ceiling fans.

At the entry level, the "Great room" with its cathedral wood ceilings, has a living room with dining table, along with a fully equipped kitchen with Granite counter tops, breakfast bar, custom cabinetry and stainless steel appliances.

On the same level, you connect to one master bedroom suite with king beds and private bath, plus a utility room with new washer and dryer, which also features a toilet for your guests.

A 2nd master suite with king bed is half a flight upstairs from the Great room. It also has a private bath and a separate outside veranda with ocean views.

Downstairs is a 3rd master bedroom with private front entry and a sliding glass patio door. It has a private bath, 2 queen beds and a walk-in closet.

All beds have super comfortable mattresses with memory foam toppers.

From the wrap around the covered patio or the refreshing salt water pool, you can enjoy watching the afternoon sun go into the Pacific. And more likely, you will be joined by monkeys, iguanas, and a wide variety of birds and butterflies who like to hang out in the well-maintained gardens and pristine jungle surrounding the home.

The outdoor patio is equipped with custom built furniture and lounges, a "Guanacaste wood" table for up to 10 persons, stainless steel BBQ grill, Hunter ceiling fans. For entertainment, you can connect to new "Bluetooth" outdoor speakers or tune into an Internet radio with stations from around the world.

The gourmet kitchen has stainless steel appliances, refrigerator with ice maker, range/oven, dishwasher, microwave oven, automatic espresso machine, granite counter tops and a breakfast bar.

We recently installed a 660-gallon water backup system, since there have been constant shut-offs by the water company because of the shortage.

The property is fenced in with remote controlled electric gate and offers room for secured off street parking.

At the bottom entrance of the dead end road leading up to to the EE section is a guard house, manned 24 hours during the high season and at night time in the offseason. In addition, security guards are monitoring the houses on motorcycles.

The house has an alarm system and is monitored by security cameras.

About Hans & Dominga Nykamp

We previously owned 'Villa Belitza' at Playa Guiones which enjoyed a 5 star rating during the many years we rented it out as vacation home. We love Nosara, which is a very unique place.

Hans & Dominga Nykamp purchased this villa in 2014

Why Hans & Dominga Nykamp chose Playa Guiones

After spending many years right on the the beach we moved to the little cooler climate of a hill top property.

What makes this villa unique

The amazing views of the beach, surf and ocean. Watching sunsets sitting on our patio or in the pool.

Awesome Place!

  • 5 of 5

It only took me over a year to write a review, but this place is really amazing. We stayed over Christmas....The house is sick and the views are unreal. I'm glad we stayed here instead of closer to the water, it is much cooler and the privacy is terrific. The outdoor space looks exactly like the pictures. If you're into riding bikes, rent a bike at the plaza below and ride up the hill each day after a long day of surfing, it's an a** kicker... After you reach the house, grab a beer and have the best outdoor beer shower know to man. The outdoor area by the pool really makes this place. The inside is very well nice as well. Hans is a good dude to work with.......the Howler monkeys make it really fun. You won't be disappointed...if you are it's a YOU problem.

Solid stay

  • 4 of 5

The villa is in a very good location directly above the heart of Playa Guinones. Nothing beats being on the beach for sunset but the view from the house is right behind it. Everything about the house and the communication was good. Parents with small children have to use a little extra precaution around the pool area due to slick when wet ceramic and layout. That small issue is pretty minor though in the grand scheme of things. Very good overall experience.

Great villa in a convenient location with a beautiful view of the ocean

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay! Hans is a perfect host and very helpful with recommendations in the area.

The villa is perfectly located and is higher up so free of the dust that pervades the lower town.

Great rooms with comfortable beds and luxury amenities

We loved Villa Gullwing! The views were amazing. We saw howler monkeys and beautiful birds every day. The drive into town was very easy and there was plenty of parking near the beaches and in town. The house was very clean and the outside areas, including the pool, were beautifully maintained. After reading a previous review, we were initially concerned about potential security issues. We were sure to lock our valuables in the safe room and used the alarm, but we never had any problems and felt very safe!! Our only frustration was the dishwasher was not working as we had 7 people in our group. Other than that, the villa was fantastic, Hans was very responsive and helpful, and we would love to return one day!

Owner's Response: We are happy you enjoyed our home. Unfortunately, we were not able to have the dishwasher repaired because it turned out that the necessary part was not available in a timely manner. Instead of waiting any longer we replaced it with a brand new one.

Great House Overall!

  • 5 of 5

My family, 3 adults and 2 small children, stayed her in Late July - Early August. Great House Overall!

The house is private up on the hill overlooking the ocean with beautiful views and flora. Hans (the owner) was extremely responsive throughout the whole process and would respond to any questions almost immediately. Kitchen was adequate though some of the appliances could be updated. The house has most modern amenities including WIFI, satellite tv and a media server with over 300+ really good movies, IP phone for US calling, AC through out, etc. But that's not why you come here. You come here and spend most of your time on the deck/patio with the beautiful views and gorgeous salt-water pool and fairly close proximity (~5 min drive) to the beautiful beach.

The only negatives: Some parts of the house could use a bit of an upgrade (main family room couch, some of the appliances, , mattresses not super comfy, linens) and the down stairs 3rd bedroom must of had a previous leak as it had a bit of a moldy must to it. There is a dehumidifier in the room and AC, but, it did little to suck out the humidity and smell.

Besides this nitpicking, this house remains a great value, in a great location with great views and overall I would highly recommend!

Final note: There were some previous reviews discussing security concerns. At no time did we feel insecure in this house. The property is gated, has an alarm system, and is in a great neighborhood. In fact, in my 20+ years coming to Costa Rica, this may be the "safest" place I stayed. In short, do not be concerned about security.

This house was amazing and would stay here again for sure. This place was absolutely beautiful and wish we could have stayed longer. Hans was wonderful to work with and extremely fast at responding to our needs as well as returning the deposit.

The only thing is that it seems like a tad farther than 5 minutes from the beach. That being said you are away from the noise so it was wonderful in the mornings and evenings bc it was so peaceful and relaxing.
