New 2014 Surfers Casual Luxury Paradise Home 4 Min Walk To Playa Guiones Surf

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Oct 23, 2014
2 Bedroom 2.5 Bathrooms Sleeps 5-6 2700 Sq Ft Living Area

Located in the prestigious and most desirable K Section, El Santuario Playa Guiones, is only a four minute walk to the Guiones surf break, yet is off the beaten path on a private road, with great privacy, and no foot or car traffic near the property. This casual luxury and beachy home has incorporated all that is unique and rustic about Costa Rica, combined with a light contemporary twist.

This open air, Balinese inspired home envelops you in lush jungle while you’re pampered with convenience and privacy. The dominant use of local teak and other local wood throughout, gives the home its rustic character, creating a contrasting canvas for the modern decor and accents. Locally harvested woods, polished concrete and contemporary silhouettes harmonize with nature and each other. Spacious and airy, the living area is ideal for entertaining, with a bar and dining table that each seat eight. The focal point of the home, this is the area that brings guests together and overlooks the lush gardens and dipping pool.

The dipping pool and patio is the spot to relax and cool off, after a day at the beach, or one of the many other excursions Nosara has to offer. Entirely surrounded by jungle, this is as private as it gets with plenty of outdoor seating, dining and lounging space. Earthy and casual, El Santuario, nonetheless provides you with a luxurious nature lover’s retreat located in one the best spots in Costa Rica.

The cool and bright master suite has a private entrance, and is complete with a private patio, beautifully and simply appointed bath constructed of polished concrete with a hand carved stone basin, modern crystal chandelier and private indoor and outdoor showers. The master bedroom is set for romance, perfect for both honeymooners, and parents alone time away from the kids. All lighting is on dimmable switches, including the bathroom and patio. There is a king size American pillow top bed, luxury Spalena sheets, flat screen TV, with 150 DVD collection, Wi-Fi, large cedar closet, and air conditioning.

Sleeping in the Treetop screened in bedroom with the howler monkeys, pizote and iguanas running free outside, takes your breath away! Climb the spiral staircase to the Treetop bedroom made entirely of wood and be transported to a jungle paradise, an adventure for all ages. Warm and inviting, this is a unique and peaceful place to relax and dream.

The kitchen comes with everything you’ll need to make spectacular meals and enjoy dining al fresco. Costa Rican coffee and fresh fruit smoothies in the morning, fresh locally caught fish and veggies for dinner, all made in the comfort of your own open air jungle kitchen. There is also a comfortable table and chairs to dine inside the master in air conditioning. The grocery shopping can be done prior to your arrival, and there are local wonderful chefs available to cook meals and stock the fridge full of homemade natural foods, for those hunger pangs after a long surf, local adventure or yoga class.

Security is a priority with a fully integrated security system and 24 hour monitoring. Doors are heavy solid steel and there are 2 large bodegas on property for your secure storage, one has a dehumidifier and is large enough for all of your larger belongings, not just the small stuff. The large surfboard and bicycle bodega, surf shower and indoor and outdoor drying racks are the perfect surfers set up, to take advantage of one of the prime reasons to visit this area.

The K Section neighborhood is very serene, there are no businesses or restaurants, yet it is only a 6-7 minute walk to a few restaurants, surf schools and board rentals. The world famous Nosara Yoga Institute, and many other yoga studios to choose from, is only a 10 minute walk. In the Swiss European designed downtown Guiones, there are lovely shops, grocery stores and several other restaurants, only 15-20 minutes walking distance. The property has a gated entrance, with plenty of parking for your rental car.

Heralded by National Geographic, Travel & Leisure and CNN as one of the top 15 places to visit in 2014, and one of the best surfing destinations in the world, Playa Guiones is a nature and beach lovers playground. Both Playa Guiones and 30 minutes north at Playa San Juanillo are beautiful snorkeling spots and encourage you to enjoy all of your favorite water sports. Playa Ostional, the northern most beaches in Nosara, provides the incredible experience of sea turtles numbering in the hundreds of thousands lay their eggs while millions of baby turtles hatch.

Reviews

Location

From the Owner

I looked at properties all over central and south America, before finding this special place. I knew the first 60 seconds I stood on the property, this was the exact spot to build my new home. I hope you will also feel the sense of wellbeing on this special spot, that I do.

Activity and Interests

Nearest Beach : Playa Guiones / 4-5 minute walk to surf break at 400 Metres Car: not necessary

The house is near the south Guiones beach entrance 'Bakers Beach' in the K Section. This is the quietest and most beautiful area on Playa Guiones. I love to walk out of the mangroves onto the sand at the beach entrance, take a left and walk a couple miles down the beach, there are very few people on this area of Playa Guiones. You will come to a lovely fishing village, lined with palm trees, where you can buy fresh fish in the mornings. There are also tide pools down left a little ways from the entrance, you will find great shallow pools to sit and swim in, and when the current is not strong, you will find all kinds of wonderful sea life while snorkeling. You will love the location of El Santuario, it is quiet and away from the bustle of town, yet it is not far to walk into town. The surf break near the Bakers Beach entrance is not crowded like the main break, which is only a few minutes up from the entrance to the right. Take the whole family out to enjoy the sunset, have a cold beer or a glass of wine and relax, or get in the water and enjoy the amazing sunset from your board.

Amenities

From the Owner

One of the greatest things about this property, there is no road dust near El Santuario, which can be a big problem in Nosara. No one can walk or drive near the property, yet it is very close to the beach. There is a lot of natural jungle around the property, on a daily basis you will have monkeys, pizotes, and many other animals passing through. You cannot see the ocean through the jungle, but you hear it loud and clear.
