Overview

About the property

Private Luxury Home. Wi-fi. On Site Water Tank. All Ammeneties!!!

Please read our reviews! We work very hard to make your trip a vacation of a lifetime!!

Barefoot Villa is a 3 bedroom, 3 full/2 half bath, fully stocked Luxury Villa, located in the prestigious K section of Guiones, on a quiet, dead end road just south of the Harbor Reef hotel and a very short walk to Guiones Beach and a 10 minute walk to the Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort (check out the satellite map below).

This house was designed to bring the sounds, smells, and feel of the jungle inside. The walls of the kitchen/family room completely slide away opening up to a large, covered patio that features a second lounging area and a beautiful Guanacaste dinner table that seats eight. Off the patio is the gated private terrace with lush tropical gardens where you can relax in the pool and enjoy a drink on one of the swim up barstools. Or, if you prefer, belly up to the outside bar at the rancho, which also houses an outdoor kitchen, a half bath, an outdoor shower and a full laundry room.

Cook your own meals in the very large, fully equipped, gourmet kitchen with stainless appliances, gas stove, granite counter tops, top quality custom Pochote cabinetry, and a large island that seats six, or we can arrange to have some or all of your meals prepared for you. We can work with you to plan a menu, have the grocery shopping done prior to your arrival and have a wonderful local cook prepare your meals. We know you'll love her!!

The three bedrooms are accessed via the stair tower on the back of the house. Two bedrooms are on the second floor, each with air conditioning, ceiling fans and a full bathroom. One bedroom, the “second suite”, has a pair of French doors that open up to a private patio with a hammock and a pair of rockers shaded by a large mango tree. The other second floor bedroom is the 'bunk room'. It has a set of 'full size over full size' bunk beds with a third full size trundle below, sleeping a total of six.

On the top floor is the very private and very luxurious Master Suite. Stunning vaulted teak ceilings are complimented by matching teak floors. One set of French doors opens to a balcony overlooking the terrace and pool surrounded by jungle. Another set of French doors opens to a second balcony from which you have modest ocean views and can listen to the surf. After a hard day of surfing, yoga, swimming or hiking you will quickly fall asleep in the dreamy king size bed with 800 thread count sheets and a pillow topped mattress. The Master Bathroom features a large, tumbled tile walk in shower, a dual sink, granite topped vanity and a separate toilet room.

One unique feature of this house is the powerful, whole house attic fan located in the vaulted ceiling of the stair tower. Each level of the house can be closed off from the stair tower. In the daytime, with the bedroom doors closed and the bottom level door open, the fan provides a constant cooling airflow throughout the kitchen and living areas enabling one to comfortably enjoy the 'open to the outside' concept of the house. At night, although all the bedrooms have air conditioning, it's wonderful to fall asleep listening to the waves and the sounds of the jungle. Just close the bottom level door and cooling air is drawn through whichever bedrooms have their windows and doors open.

You can always sleep soundly because Barefoot Villa was designed with security as a priority. A security guard patrols the property from 6PM to 6AM as well as randomly during the day. There is an alarm system, two large safes, and all doors and windows have metal security bars. The set of electrically controlled roll down bars across the patio are also a nice feature for families with small children. When they are lowered they prevent access to the terrace and swimming pool while retaining the open feel of the living space, creating a kid safe zone.

The furniture was custom made by the very best local craftsmen using local hardwoods Pochote, Teak and Guanacaste. All the ceilings in Barefoot Villa, including the patio and rancho, are Teak. The floors throughout are quality tile except the Master Suite, which are Teak.

Many visitors to Guiones opt to not rent a car. In fact, Barefoot Villa’s location is ideal because it is a four minute walk to the beach and within a five to ten minute walk to the famous Yoga Institute, several bars and restaurants, a surf shop, bakery, gym and market. At the same time you will feel out of the hustle of town because the house is located on a quiet, dead end street with no through traffic. Four beach cruiser bikes are also complimentary as well as two long boards, one 6' fish, one short board, two boogie boards, two 'Beater' boards and beach chairs. A gated driveway and outdoor bodega round out this gorgeous and well designed property.

Come create your own Costa Rican memories at the Barefoot Villa. You won’t be disappointed!!!

Beautiful & perfect location

If you want to surf and see monkeys this is the perfect location. I can't say enough about this property. It was perfect for a family of 6 and the owner is the best I have worked with.

Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

Nosara is a great place for a family vacation or romantic getaway. The locals are friendly and they make everyone feel welcome. My family travels frequently and we've rented homes all over the world and Barefoot Villa is honestly one of the best properties we've ever rented for several reasons. The house itself is well appointed from bed linens and towels to kitchen equipment to surf boards and bicycles. You don't need to bring anything except some shorts, t shirts and swim suit. I usually bring a Bose portable speaker for music but Barefoot Villa has a great Bluetooth sound system with speakers in the house living area and pool bar. Unlike a lot of homes in Central America and the Caribbean, everything in the house works! The communication with me by the owner, Angie, and her staff was completely thorough, such as directions, restaurant suggestions, activity bookings, golf cart rentals etc. We rented a car to drive from Liberia to Nosara. We only used the car once during our stay to drive to the closest large grocery store, about 15 minute drive, to re provision during the week. The rest of the time we cruised around on golf carts to go surfing or out to dinner. We arranged to have the house stocked with provisions upon our arrival, which it was, and we were met by the house manager who gave us a complete rundown of the property that was very helpful. We were able to have Nina cook for us a couple of days too which was a real treat! The house is located on a quiet cul de sac and the walk to the beach is a few hundred yards. You can't go wrong renting Barefoot Villa.

Excellent Vacation at Barefoot Villa

  • 5 of 5

The six of us just returned from a great vacation at Barefoot Villa in Playa Guiones. This was our first trip to Nosara but not our first trip to Costa Rica. We know from our previous travels that the location of the house is very important -- you don't want to be too far from the beach and restaurants but you also don't want a lot of noise and dust from the road and businesses. Finding a good balance between the two can be a challenge and is one of the primary reasons we enjoyed Barefoot Villa. Its location at the end of a private road provides privacy yet is only a few minutes from the beach and restaurants.

The home has a lot of nice touches that you notice throughout your stay but also a few important touches that you may not notice until you need them. The more important one that comes to mind is the reserve water tank. We overhead people at the beach saying they were unable to take showers at their hotel one afternoon since there was no water. Not us. The town turned off the water that afternoon (to conserve water in times of drought) but all of us were able to take a short shower thanks to the reserve water tank.

Working with Angie was a pleasure. Angie answered our (many) questions before our trip without delay and helped book our private chef (the infamous Nina), arrange for groceries to be delivered before our arrival, and help answer questions about activities and airport transfers. The information packet Angie provided before our arrival as well as the information book at the house (with restaurant recommendations and other worthwhile information) were also very informative.

Great family vacation at Barefoot Villa!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation in Nosara staying at Barefoot Villa. The house is beautiful and was a perfect fit for my wife and I and our two adult children with their significant others. The location is great at the end of a cul-de-sac near the beach and town. We especially appreciated the time the owner Angie took to advise and assist us with arranging for groceries, Nina’s cooking, restaurant selection, excursions, etc. Brian, the property manager, was very helpful as well. Angie also connected us with Natalie who runs Nosara Family Surf. Natalie found us a golf cart rental when we could find nothing online, and also helped us put together a fun itinerary of activities (surfing lessons, sunset horseback ride, zip line, ATV tour). These additional services were an added bonus and instrumental in making for a fun, stress free vacation. We love Nosara and hope to have the opportunity to go back there again in the not too distant future, and when we do we will be sure to stay at Barefoot Villa!

Awesome Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Had an awesome time at Barefoot Villa! We stayed 9 days and enjoyed the nice little beach town of Playa Guiones. The pool and amenities worked perfect for the seven of us. The house is great - all the beach toys needed. Our 12, 14, and 18 yr old boys surfed and used the boogie boards nearly everyday. We hired Nina for three days of house cooking and loved her guacamole/chips. Don't miss the Miss Sky Zipline Tour only 10 minutes away - take note the roads are bumpy. Ocean water is the perfect temperature 83 degrees. We hit the restaurants El Basilica, Beach Dog Cafe, El Chivo, and Il Peperoni (the best). I recommend buying groceries in Nicoya on the way in (better pricing and availability), but you can buy necessary food in the town small markets. The people are friendly and helpful. We highly recommend the Barefoot Villa for great beach stay and surf village/town.

Most Amazing Place!

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from a week at Barefoot Villa. We had the beast vacation ever! The location is amazing; it's close to the beach and within walking distance of "town". The villa has every amenity anyone could ask for. The lanai was our favourite room in the house. The quality of the linens is exceptional and the beds are super comfortable. Nina the cook is amazing! Everything she prepared for us was delicious and healthy. She is a real sweat lady who added a unique and enjoyable element to our vacation. The area is very safe. The beach and the surf is outstanding. If you need assistance arranging excursions, surf lessons or transport, I'd strongly suggest contacting Natalie or Johan at Nosara Family Surf (https://www.facebook.com/nosarafamilysurf/). We will definitely be back!
