Property description

Designed by famed architect Abraham Valenzuela, this house connects you to nature and to each other in revitalizing ways. Many locals and guests call it one of the finest tropical homes in the region. It overlooks a deep river basin, with ocean views. You experience nature, instead of the sounds, lights and noise of man.

In a gated community 12 km north of Nosara with many owner-occupied homes close by. Within the Rio Rosario river basin, which has probably the finest microclimate on Costa Rica's entire 780-mile Pacific Ocean coast.

Just minutes from several great restaurants - Hotel Luna Azul, Hotel San Juanillo, Tree Tops B&B - and easy drives to Nosara or Liberia over 3 new bridges built in 2012. This unspoiled coast area is inaccessible no more.

House offers dramatic river basin and ocean views, and unforgettable sunsets. Lush grounds surround it with flowering plants, ferns and palms. You hear crashing waves that amplify up the river basin for soothing hypnotic sounds. Watch shimmering light reflections on its 50’ infinity-edge lap pool - always with perfect swimming temperatures and for lounging upon.

The house sits 300’ up and 1/2 km back up from the ocean for near perfect year-round temperatures. All concrete construction with exotic wood, copper and stone finishes, the house stays cool all day long. Lush tree canopies offer shade and attract monkeys and birds close. Most Nosara area houses require a/c both night and day, but this house only rarely requires a/c. This means you get to hear the sounds of nature instead of the sounds of electricity, compressors and fans.

The house has many exotic stone/copper/wood finish treatments. A large gourmet kitchen with European gas stove with convection oven. Satellite TV, wireless Internet and strong cell phone signals. Alarm system, safe room with renter's safe. Covered carport. Cleaning, pool and landscape services included, and also concierge services too.

Two bedrooms sit on opposite ends of the house. The large master suite has a king bed with a tree house-like feel in a tree canopy over decorative ferns and plants below. Its wood/glass walls open to all screen walls to make you feel like you're in a tree house. The master bedroom walls open on three sides to allow refreshing breezes to flow through. A glass shower room opens onto a private deck with outside shower that overlooks gardens below.

Guest bedroom has a queen bed with 3/4 bath. Also a full-size bed in gazebo and deluxe daybed on veranda. A/c in both bedrooms, and luxury ceiling fans too.

The world-famous Ostional turtle beach is just 2 km south. Famous intermediate and expert surf breaks are close by in Nosara, Ostional and Marbella. The region's best safe swimming and snorkeling beaches are 2 km away in San Juanillo.

With the deep lap pool outside of most rooms, the house is not for young kids unable to swim. We prefer to rent to one or two couples, or a family of 4 with kids who swim.
