vacation rental description

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 frig full of home made 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 Ostinal, 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.

traveler reviews for this nosara house rental

Simply Magical!

Review submitted: August 18, 2014   Date of arrival: July 27, 2014

Our family has travelled extensively globally and we have never experienced such a magical place as El Sancturario. The attention to design, beautiful jungle setting and the open architectural plan all leads to creating the perfect place to explore Nosara. Our kids loved the howler monkeys and the treetop room. Trisha is a wonderful host as well as the property manager(Katie and Matt), were always available as needed, did an exceptional job of shopping for our large family prior to our arrival and for a modest fee had a warm Costa Rican meal waiting. THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Wonderful stay!

Review submitted: June 20, 2014   Date of arrival: June 4, 2014

We had an amazing ten day stay in Costa Rica – thanks to your beautiful and unique home, thoughtful welcoming goodies, and great attention to detail concerning local recommendations.

Where do we even begin? El Santuario is just lovely – every last area of it! Who would have thought an open-air home would be so cozy, inviting, and comfortable? We enjoyed coffee from the traditional Costa Rican coffee maker and fresh fruit every morning in the main open living space while listening to monkeys and birds – after waking up in what felt like a jungle tree house upstairs! Afternoons were spent with cocktails by and in the pool after day excursions on the beach or in the jungle. We could easily hop out of the pool and head to the beach within five minutes to catch the unbelievable sunsets. The special touches in the house (the bathroom sinks, the spa-like outdoor shower, the decorative artisan masks, etc.) made it feel as if we were staying in a resort – but all to ourselves. And Yesenia’s delicious cooking was the perfect addition. We suggest other visitors request her arroz con pollo!

Our only suggestion is the addition of a guest book in the master bedroom, so future guests can gush about their stay while still in the moment! Thank you, thank you for everything!

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, romantic getaway

Owners response: I am so happy you all had such a great time. You were wonderful guests, I truly enjoyed hosting your group, even the property managers Matt & Kaite, and staff Yesenia, and Eliab sent me messages, saying how lovely you all are. Thank you for the kind words about the property, and the lovely message you had sent while staying there, " Your labor of love was successful and your attention to all the little details has not gone unnoticed! Every evening our main topic of conversation has been the house itself, the driftwood sculptures, the artwork, and WOW.. The landscaping;)" Planting the garden was my personal favorite thing during the entire project.
I will definitely get a Guest Book for the house. Thank you again, it was wonderful hosting you!
Kind regards, Trisha

Heaven on Earth!!!

Review submitted: March 24, 2014   Date of arrival: March 1, 2014

This was our fourth trip to Nosara, but our first time bringing our daughter and renting a home. We absolutely loved our stay and highly recommend this property.
All of my correspondence with Trish the owner was timely and she was so excited for us to stay at her place. She went above and beyond meeting our expectations. We were met in town upon our arrival by the property manager, Jon and he lead us to this beautiful home. I loved that we were able to have groceries purchased and ready for us once we arrived as well as a fun basket of pasta, sauce and olive oil, popcorn, beer and wine in the fridge. The pictures are exactly what you will see but I have to admit, it took us a little by surprise just how open it really was to the elements. With that said, it was absolutely perfect, so wonderful to be in the kitchen preparing fresh smoothies, lounging on your ever so comfortable sectional, and still enjoying being outdoors. One night we did have a family of howler monkeys in a tree right near the pool, but they never approached the property, I would've loved it if they did.
The location of this property is perfect, off the beaten path so there is no noise or traffic, other then the sound of the ocean, but a wonderfully short walk to the beach and into town. Fabulous restaurants all within walking distance, but you will want to bring along the flashlight, also provided.
While we were there it was 99 degrees every day and not once did we need to have the air on in the master bedroom, in every room and bathroom are wonderful fans that kept us incredibly comfortable. We weren't even bothered by any bugs of any kind.
We are already looking forward to coming back next year but hoping to make it a longer stay.
Thank you Trish, we so enjoyed our time at your beautiful home, thank you for sharing it with us.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, girls getaway, sight seeing, tourists without a car, romantic getaway

Owners response: It was such a pleasure having your family in my home! Thank you again for sending the family photo taken on the property, it truly makes me happy to see guests having a wonderful time. I look forward to hosting you again! Kind regards, Trisha
