This house fit the bill for our vacation to the Nosara area. Had an amazing time. It is a truly amazing home.
Only issues to consider are 1. It's listed as in Nosara, but is actually in Garza. You have a beautiful view of Guiones, but you actually have to go back around the mountain to Garza and then drive over to Guiones or Pelada. Takes about 20 minutes and the roads are rough. That said, Guiones and Pelada are both extremely dusty and don't have the views that this home has. I loved being out of it all. Just make sure that's what you want.
2. The security in this home is top of the line and I greatly appreciated it. One of those little nuggets of info about Costa Rica that gets swept under the rug too often is there is an abundance of break ins and thefts. Virtually no violent crime to speak of, but almost every expat who lives there and a lot of the tourists have stories of getting their homes broken into and property stolen. This home does the best job I've ever seen of dealing w/ that. Not only is it in a gated community on the top of a mountain, but the security in the home, including the sledgehammer proof screens and steel doored valuables room make it completely unappealing to thieves. The only issue I had was, upon arrival, we were issued a set of keys that looked like your average high school janitor's. We ended up picking off a few we needed the most, and then locked the rest in the bodega. I would bet that's what most people do.
Anyway, back to the home. It's incredible. Simple lay out. Everything works... and it's gorgeous. Gets great breezes. You can always find a shady spot. Our kids loved the pool. Also, worth mentioning is that everything is well sealed, and it does as good a job as I imagine is possible in Costa Rica at keeping the bugs out. This is a big deal I assure you! At a rental property we stayed at later in our trip, the doors and windows were warped somewhat and we found more than one scorpion in that house. No surprises like that at all at David and Linda's home! Long story short... if you want to live like a king, this is a great place to do it.
One other warning though, be aware if you book thru VRBO (on any home... not just this one.) that VRBO shows the check out date as the last date of your stay! Most places the last date is the last night you stay there. We got bit in the butt by this... but it was in NO WAY David and Linda's fault! Just a different way VRBO does it, I didn't catch.
