Overview

About the property

2 Master Suites With additional Loft, guest house separate, OCEAN VIEWS!

Villa verde is a privately gated home nestled on the hillside above the tranquil landscape of the pacific ocean surrounded by almost 2 acres of beautifully landscaped tropical foliage as well as natural jungle with a small creek at the base of the property. Once inside the gates you will notice how the stress of your daily life begins to simply melt away. Let the incredible views along with the sounds and sites of nature, including the ocean waves, be your backdrop while you take a dip in the infinity edge salt water pool, enjoy outdoor cooking in the rancho with its own bar or pick your own fruit in season from the various fruit trees. This stunning villa (completed in Feb 2015) includes 2 king size master suites and a sleeping loft with 2 1/2 baths (plus an outdoor shower by the pool) which will accommodate 5 people. There is also a separate guest house (completed in October 2015) that has a small kitchen, bathroom with outdoor shower and a queen size bed that can be added to the villa accommodations for a nominal additional fee allowing the property to sleep a MAXIMUM of 7 People. It will be difficult to choose which master suite, since the upstairs has a private balcony for sipping morning coffee and the downstairs master has a huge two person bathtub which is separate from the shower. An open concept elegant living area with a dramatic spiral staircase leads up to the open loft made with exotic sustainable woods. The loft includes a fitness area and desk along with the comfortable fold down couch. Although the house was designed for good airflow with well placed windows, screen doors and ceiling fans, you may choose to use the high efficiency AC throughout the entire home. The villa has a gourmet kitchen with stainless steel high quality appliances, granite counter tops, wine refrigerator, ice maker, food processor, blender, rice cooker, coffee grinder and all the amenities to truly enjoy cooking in your villa. In this quiet remote jungle location you will enjoy wild monkeys, a variety of exotic birds, iguanas and of course olive ridley sea turtles at the nearby Ostional Sea Turtle Refuge. There are several restaurants within 15-20 mins from the villa, Luna Azul, which is a favorite and ours, is 5 min away, there is pizza in Ostional, two very good international restaurants in San Juanillo, 10 min away and great restaurants in the Nosara area should you choose not to cook on your own. You also have the option of hiring a chef to prepare a dinner for you. There is a yoga platform and meditation garden down by the wet weather creek surrounded by jungle and a natural garden, just right for a serene meditation or yoga workout. The adventures abound in this area, do not miss the longest zip line, Miss Sky, which is only 20 min. from the property. Deep sea fishing, snorkeling, paddle boarding and horseback riding are also available near by. You can also scuba dive with an experienced guide. If you are interested in seeing a volcano this is a day trip to see. You can also have a masseuse come to the villa to give you a private couples massage or an individual one.

About Robert and Linda Clark

We began renting homes over 15 years ago and it was our dream to own our own vacation rental villa in a tropical location after that first rental. We had researched and visited numerous locations and when we came to Costa Rica, we knew it was the right place for us. The people of Costa Rica could not be nicer and the country offers so many adventures we could not pass it by. We bought the undeveloped land in 2007 and we designed the Villa and began our own construction in 2013. The Villa was completed in early February 2015. I speak English as well as Spanish.

Robert and Linda Clark purchased this house in 2007

Why Robert and Linda Clark chose Nosara

Our property is in a less developed area that allows you to appreciate the wildlife and fauna as well as the warmth of the native people. We are a short drive from Nosara which is a well known expat community with numerous restaurants and shops and well known for its surfing. We are also 10 min from the Ostional Turtle Beach and Refuge for the Olive Ridley sea turtles. If you want to experience all Costa Rica has to offer, this is the home for you.

What makes this house unique

You get the best of both worlds, jungle views and ocean views but with the privacy you want on vacation. Your own gated Villa with private pool, outdoor rancho, wildlife galore. Make a list of what you want for your Costa Rican vacation and Villa Verde will have checked them off:)

Wonderful home and location

  • 5 of 5

Spent a week with a family of 4, including 2 teenagers, at this beautiful home. We loved that we felt like we were away from it all, yet near enough to Nosara to enjoy its food, when we were not cooking the fresh local food ourselves, and it's many activities, such as the Zip Line, surfing, and SUPing. The kitchen was well stocked, the bedrooms comfortable, and relaxing by the pool was quite enjoyable. The nearby beach at Ostional is an exceptional and almost deserted black sand beach with incredible sunsets, although the turtles were not nesting when we were there, as they tend to show up during the new moon. Robert and Linda provide a great "Booklet" that provides most of the information that you need while visiting the area. Javier, the grounds keeper, and Stevie, the manager were both very friendly and helpful. Highly recommend Tibidabo Mediterranean Food & Cocktail Bar in Nosara, and the local Luna Azul which is right down the road, for the times you want to eat out. Enjoy!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the nice review. We love the exclusive feeling we have at our place, privacy and the jungle and ocean! My favorite beach is still San Juanillo. They have really improved it with bathrooms and more open space. Please come back during the "green" season. It feels like a different place! Pura vida, Robert and Linda

Beautiful house in a beautiful surrounding!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Villa Verde in December 2017. We loved our stay in Costa Rica. The temperature was ideal (sun, 30 to 35 degrees) and the villa was perfect, newly built, well equipped, clean. The photos are a true reflection of reality. Although the air conditioning of the central room did not work more than half of our stay (it must be said that we rented during the holiday season and it was probably more difficult to find a repairer), we were able to sleep cool since the rooms are equipped with separate air conditioning units. The villa is located in the mountains, in the jungle. The terrace and pool provide a sublime view of the sunsets. The nearest beaches are a 10-minute drive away.

Several activities and good restaurants are located about thirty minutes from the villa in Nosara (nice beaches, skyline, surf lessons, full grocery store). The restaurant La Luna in Nosara is a must! The road to get to Nosara is in itself quite an experience and requires (a must) the renting of a 4x4 (gravel road, very uneven which even has 2 small rivers to cross!). In fact all the roads around the villa are like that (from Liberia Airport there is a 28 km on gravel road), but it is part of the charm of the country.

During our stay we had the chance to attend an arribada (turtle laying) at Ostional Beach about 10 minutes from the house, a magical experience. Ostional is a beautiful black sand beach, virtually deserted but unfortunately does not provide any shade. There is no beach umbrella at the villa but you can get one at Nosara (rentals at Coconut Harry).

The owners provided a comprehensive and practical guide of activities and restaurants nearby. Steven and Javier were invaluable during our stay. We also felt very safe in Costa Rica, local people are very hospitable.

Beautiful home in a tranquil jungle environment.

  • 4 of 5

Villa Verde is a retreat, an oasis. Sunsets, view, monkeys are all part of the charm. Javier, the grounds keeper, was very thoughtful bringing fresh limes every day. He rinsed our car each morning and was there to help us with any needs . Kitchen is terrific for cooking in, as is outdoor grill area.

Pool was always pristine!

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed your stay at Villa Verde. I hope you got to also see the yoga platform and meditation area down by the creek. We put a lot of thought into the home and love to cook as well so the kitchen was a priority. Pure Vida Robert and Linda

Adventure Days and Sunset Evenings!

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly wonderful time at Villa Verde!

Everyday was an adventure, morning coffee with the mischievous howler monkeys and beautiful local birds in the lushly landscaped grounds overlooking the ocean.

Daily adventures included zip lining, beach picnics with breathtaking views and of course some shopping. I learned to navigate and had fun 4 wheeling across rivers (they were creeks at the time). Afternoons found us at some local watering holes to enjoy the sunsets, but the best ones were actually at Villa Verde! The home is beautifully appointed and lacks for nothing in creature comforts - Rob and Linda really did a great job thinking of everything.

Thank you so much - I had a fantastic time and will happily recommend!

Very comfortable and ideal

  • 5 of 5

We had an awesome vacation in Costa Rica and our stay at Villa Verde was perfect. The house was very comfortable and had all Comforts that we needed. It was our first time in Costa Rica so we were initially concerned with the remoteness of the home but that was probably one of its best qualities. You could sit by the pool and enjoy the sunset in the evens but also get up early and enjoy fresh tranquil mornings. I would alway have my binoculars so I can enjoy all the wildlife in the forest around the property. Linda and Rob provided excellent directions and tips on all activities which made our vacation easier. Stevie - the property manager and Javier - care taker were alway available if we needed any guidance or help. thank You everyone for your hospitality:)

Owner's Response: Hello Babar, It was a pleasure to have you and your family at Villa Verde. We too truly love the solitude at our home and that allows for more wildlife to visit. Glad that our detailed owners booklet was helpful We welcome you back anytime. Pura Vida Robert and Linda

Of course the ostional turtle refuge which is 4 miles from the villa is a must see experience. Playa Guiones has beginning surf lessons and more advanced surfing, Playa Ostional is for advanced surfers and there is also advanced surfing in Marbella. Playa Pelada is great for boogie boarding. There are many places to practice and learn yoga. We have Yoga mats and suggest you practice your Yoga on the deck by the pool in the early mornings while listening to the variety of birds or down by the wet weather creek in solitude. If you want Monkeys we have them in our trees, they are called Howler Monkeys and when you first hear them you might think it is a wild dog. The monkeys are wild so roam the jungle as they please. Hacienda del Sol offers a variety of wellness spa treatments or you can arrange for a massage right at the villa from a private masseuse. Horseback riding tours on the beach or in the mountains are available. Paddle surfing is done on San Juanillo beach and lessons are available. Deep sea fishing, diving, snorkeling and turtle tours are available. You must experience Miss Sky zip line, it is one of the longest in the world, but do make a reservation in advance. The morning zip line adventure is the most popular. There are a number of great restaurants in the area with a variety of menu items and price ranges if you choose to go out, but please enjoy the gourmet kitchen at Villa Verde as well.
