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 8. 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 Guanacaste

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

Paradise in the Jungle

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I shared Villa Verde with my nephew and his wife. We had a great vacation together. The luxury accommodations are nicer than the pictures show. I awoke, the first morning , to a gentle cool breeze upon my face. I found the air conditioner just above my head, GREAT .We have traveled a lot and found Villa Verde exceptional, can't wait to return. The grounds keeper, Javier, was very helpful and friendly. We will come back to this Paradise in the jungle.

Our Villa Verde Experience

  • 5 of 5

Robert and Linda Clark were the most gracious of hosts. They have gone to extreme lengths to ensure that everyone has all the comforts and more of home. They were both extremely helpful prior to our trip and the information packet just enabled us to have an easier time while "navigating" the area. Their property manager and caretaker are available to assist in any manner. As we enjoyed our daily adventures, we so looked forward to the beauty and tranquility of the house. It only took us 24 hrs to truly enjoy being "off the grid" and have a feel for the area. All the locals are so genuine as well....I am in the hospitality industry and honestly can say that I highly recommend Villa Verde to anyone wanting to come to the beach area in Costa Rica - you truly receive value staying in their beautiful piece of paradise. The sunsets and listening the monkeys in the trees at night along with taking dips in the pool were absolutely lovely -we didn't want to leave!!!

We are already thinking of when we could go back!!!

Owner's Response: Delores and John, Thank you so much for your kind review. We really wanted to creat a luxurious private retreat for people to enjoy nature, and truly unwind and it appears from your review that we succeeded. So happy to have had you stay at Villa Verde and you must return again soon! We will share your comments with Javier as well. Thanks again! Linda and Robert

Paradise found

  • 5 of 5

If your looking for a luxury accommodation with a priceless sunset view of the pacific, this is your place. Villa Verde has two gorgeous bedrooms, a full equipped gourmet kitchen, and a pool patio that calls you to relax. We stayed with my best friend and his wife and found the place was perfect for two couples. Villa Verde is off the main road so look for and follow the little yellow signs when you turn off the 160. About the time you wonder if your heading in the right direction you'll see the gated entrance to this tranquil oasis. Looking out you have 180 degree view of the ocean and the surrounding jungle is full of birds, butterflies and howler monkeys you can hear in the distance. The on-site care taker Javier is friendly and helpful. He kept the pool sparkling clean and even left us some Limon Dulce (Sweet Lemons).

There are many incredible beaches near by and the town of Nosara (30 min drive) has a full supermarket for you to stock the kitchen. You will want a 4 wheel drive as all the roads in the area are dirt.

If your looking for a gorgeous home, in a beautiful location and peaceful place to relax, this is the place.

Great!

  • 5 of 5

A luxurious, remote, and off the beaten path paradise! Great views, isolation, and a modest (but bumpy) drive to nearby tourist beaches. Can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: Hi Jeff, So happy that you and your family had fun and also that the surprise birthday cake for your son was a hit. As for the roads, welcome to Costa Rica, we never know when they will come through yearly to do maintainence on them, but when they do the roads are sweet again. All part of the adventure. We welcome you back anytime! Pura Vida, Robert and Linda

Outstanding Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I along with another couple stayed at Villa Verde for 5 nights and enjoyed every minute! Robert and Linda have literally thought of everything which made our stay so easy and relaxing. The view of the sunset every night was a great perk of the location. Also, the information packet they provide is extremely helpful and will make your time in Costa Rica memorable. Lastly, the property manager Stevie and the caretaker Javier were both extremely friendly and a big help! We highly recommend Villa Verde for anyone looking to book their trip in Nosara.

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.
