House, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 10)

***NOTICE TO OUR CUSTOMERS*** We have elected not to sign up for VRBO’s “book now” program because once we do VRBO will charge you, our customer, a mandatory 4%-9% service fee. We have been renting since 2010 and have received nothing but 5 star reviews. We work tirelessly for our clients to assure that you have the best Costa Rican vacation ever and don’t feel that this fee is justified. Thank you for your continued support. Angie & Dixon

Barefoot Villa is a 3 bedroom, 3 full/2 half bath Luxury Villa, located in the prestigious K section of Guiones, on a dead end road just south of the Harbor Reef hotel and a very short walk to Guiones Beach (check out the sattelite 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!!!

About the Owner

We are in the travel industry and travel extensively ourselves. We know what it's like to have high expectations when renting a property, only to be disappointed. It's extremely important to us that this never happens at Barefoot Villa!! We work hard to always maintain the property in top condition so won't be disappointed!!

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 ( We will definitely be back!

Outstanding Villa, Great Value

  • 5 of 5

Barefoot Villa is a thoroughly modern 3 bedroom home very close to the beach and restaurants. We were two couples, and our wives loved staying there. It's about a three minute walk to the beach, or lounge around the beautiful pool area. The kitchen had literally everything needed, and we cooked most of our meals, but ask the owner if Nina is available, she's a wonderful cook. Laura the housekeeper comes in twice a week, and she was extremely friendly and helpful. Howler monkeys were in the surrounding trees every day, and the bird watching is incredible, right from the pool area. And we were able to get NFL football on the TV on Sunday. Also, there's a guard at the end of the street who makes regular rounds, and the house is very secure, so we never felt uncomfortable about our safety. Finally, the owner is extremely responsive and helpful. I highly recommend Barefoot Villa.

Paradise in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a two week stay at Casa Barefoot. We have been renting home in the J section of Playa Guiones for the last 10 years and this home was by far our very favorite! You just can't go wrong with this home, it has it all! It is beautifully decorated, on a quiet dead end street and about as close to the beach as you can get!! They have thought of every possible thing you would every need in a rental home!! The best outdoor area that you will never get tired of using!! A beautiful slice of heaven!

Great private place to stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with a group of friends for a week in December. It is a great place to stay. It is private and very comfortable with all the luxuries. We especially enjoyed the way you could open up the downstairs to the pool deck. The beach is within walking distance. It is exactly as advertised. There is a bakery truck and a fruit and vegetable truck that go by the house during the week, we loved that. Everyone was very helpful. I look forward to going back in the future.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

Just finished our second visit to Barefoot Villa. Once again, it was AWESOME! The facilities, house, the home cooked meals from a terrific local woman, the personal help of the owners, and of course the incredible country of Costa Rica and Nosara make it a terrific place to vacation. A very special place and we will be returning. Highly recommend renting ATV's/quads and the Ms Sky canopy tour. Both great fun!! Very reasonable too in my opinion!:)

Hidden Gem in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

I am a seasoned traveler, having stayed at many resorts, hotels, private rentals, etc. all over the world for both business and pleasure. We traveled to Barefoot Villa on October 27th, with my wife, daughter and her two university girlfriends for a period of 1 week. We found BV to be everything it was described as, and more. It is set on a dead end road surrounded by lush green trees and flora native to the region, tranquil and quiet, conveniently located close to town and spectacular Guiones Beach. We were treated to the marvelous cooking of Nina; 3 healthy locally inspired meals a day, with fresh meats we purchased at the pescaderia (fish market), and local general market nearby. Everything else was provided prior to our arrival for off the shelf value plus a 20% service fee. Well worth the price and reasonable daily rate (we saved a small fortune by avoiding the restaurant option). We also procured the cleaning services of Laura 3 times during the week (one was included with the rental), which again was well worth the modest rate. Both ladies were well tipped for their awesome efforts.

The house itself was spectacular; elegant and practical, with abundant space for the five of us. Angie has taken great care of ensuring all instructions, tips, local contacts, and everyday living details are carefully documented and accessible. We felt at home right away, and comfortably secure with the comprehensive yet easy to use security system.

Our method of transportation was private shuttle from and to Liberia Airport, and 2 ATVs rented from David at Harbor Reef Hotel for local daily outings. This provided us with amazing opportunities to get to know the local area and beyond, without having to necessarily stay on the main roads. Angie has negotiated a discount with David's Guiones Beach Gear which made the ATV rentals very reasonable and far cheaper than a local car rental. Barefoot Villa also offers 3 bikes, 2 surfboards and a couple of boogie boards which were well used every day.

All in all I would rate Barefoot Villa as one of our very top vacation rentals, in a spectacular and so far secluded region of amazing Costa Rica. We will be going back! I am happy to provide a personal reference, you can get my contact information from Angie.
