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.
