STUNNING NEW HOME - 5 BR SUITES, POOL & 4 MINUTE WALK TO BEACH

Nosara House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 5 Baths (Sleeps 22)

Located at the south end of Playa Guiones in Nosara in a new gated community/development called the Guiones Beach Club, the Rancho Paloma Azul home is perched on top of a small knoll that is 1110 square meters (approximately 1/3 acre) in size.

It has views of the Pacific Ocean, the surrounding hills and rain forest and is approximately 300 yards from the beach (about a four minute walk at most on a private, palm-lined trail). Because of its slight elevation, the property typically receives a nice ocean breeze.

This home can accommodate as few as two guests with bed space for as many as 22 and includes all of the following:

THE RANCHO:

A 18' x 24' indigenous open-air ''palapa'' style patio structure made of beautiful teak wood. This is the social hub of the home. It includes an open kitchen, bar counter top & stools and a large communal dining area along with open-air hammocks and lounge day beds and views to the beach. This building is immediately adjacent to the private swimming pool.

THE CABANA SUITES AND THE BUNK HOUSE:

Located on the 1st floor level are four (4) attached Cabana Suites, all of similar construction, each with its own 4-post queen size bed, private bathroom and porches with rocking chairs. Great for couples or for individual usage.

The building is a partial two-story structure with an upstairs master suite, called The Bunk House, equipped with a large bathroom. With three (3) full beds and two (2) twin bunk-style beds, The Bunk House can sleep up to a total eight people. Great for kids, teens and/or couple and individual usage.

Two surfboard racks for storage of up to 12 surfboards. Three outdoor showers, one by the pool for rinsing sandy feet and two others by the Cabana suites and surfboard rack, respectively.

All rooms are equipped with locked mini-bodegas and digital safes to safeguard your personal belongings.

THE SWIMMING POOL:

The pool is approximately 12' x 22', fully tiled with shallow and deep areas. Pool uses a salt water chlorine generator, so no harsh chemicals for eyes, skin and hair.

ADDITIONAL SLEEPING AREAS:

There are additional outdoor, covered sleeping areas in the second floor loft of the Rancho equipped with two (2) full beds and two (2) twin beds with mosquito netting and ceiling fans.

FULL-TIME CARETAKER:

A friendly, full time on-site caretaker lives on the property to provide 24/7 security for the home and guests. He handles all pool and gardening duties and is available to assist guests during their stay, including making dinner reservations and activity booking.

HOUSECLEANING/MAID SERVICE:

Daily maid and cleaning service is included in the rental of this property from Monday through Saturday.

COOK/CHILD CARE:

Daily assistance with cooking and/or child-care is available upon request.

ON-PREMISE MASSEUSE OR YOGA:

Assistance with scheduling on-premise massage or yoga lessons.

ABOUT GUIONES BEACH CLUB: We have yet to locate the GBC clubhouse or any dues-paying members for that matter, but it is a private gated community with a 24/7 guard house and security patrol, all underground utilities (unique in Nosara) and unbeatable proximity to Playa Guiones beach.

This property is owned by a group of 7 fun-loving partners from the U.S. We purchased the dirt back in 2006 but just finished the house, known as Rancho Paloma Azul, in January of 2009. We are all friends and family and this place was designed for big informal gatherings with multiple families and lots of kids. The house is informal, laid back and celebrates coming together in such a pristine and wonderful environment.

Craig Stanford purchased this house in 2008

Nosara and Playa Guiones is a truly special spot. Very laid back and non-resort-like. Extremely kid friendly. We are here because this is a great spot to relax and be with friends and family. Oh yeah, and the surfing rocks and sport fishing is pretty awesome too.

Rancho Paloma Azul is uniquely designed around a central outdoor living area to allow you to be in the outdoors and enjoying the beach breezes, sound of the ocean and the pool.

Exceptional Property and Hosts

  • 5 of 5
We spent an awesome adventure-filled week at Paloma Azul! Craig was super helpful advising on logistics, etc. We went with 3 families (6 adults and 5 kids ranging from 5-13) and there was plenty of space. The house was GREAT - the Rancho was well-stocked, comfortable and fit all of us easily for meals and general hangout time; the sleeping rooms were private, safe and spacious; the location was perfect - just far enough from the main street to be private and quiet but close enough to still walk to all the little shops and restaurants in Nosara. "Juanca" (Juan Carlos), the house manager, was a nice surprise - I did not expect full concierge services! He was friendly and SO helpful - we not have gotten to do the many adventures without his help. He booked deep sea fishing, surfing, ATVs, Howling Monkey tour, restaurants, hikes, private chefs, etc, and he was a pleasure to have around! Fun fun fun! We will definitely be back!!!

So fantastic we want to move here!

  • 5 of 5
Wow! We spent two weeks in this perfect place and couldn't have had a better time! The grounds were beautiful and the home had everything we needed. Plenty of space for 3 families and we especially loved having all the living space outdoors. We had 5 children ages 3-7 and they cried when we had to leave. Juan Carlos truly made our trip spectacular! He was so kind and eager to help us in any way possible, from making reservations to throwing a phenomenal 6th birthday party for my daughter. He was always available, always smiling and so helpful. We will absolutely be back!!!

We love Rancho Paloma Azul!

  • 4 of 5
This was our second stay at Paloma Azul and look forward to another.
We stay with our 3 kids and another family (with 2 kids). There is PLENTY of room and we love that the whole house (other than the bedrooms) is completely outdoors. Juan Carlos has also been so helpful getting the things we need, taking care of us and our little kids and just an all round great guy to manage the property.

Super place for a group holiday

  • 5 of 5
Great property for a family trip, so close to the beach, and village, yet private and secluded. Amenities were great, wi-fi was a little slow, but reminded us of the need to *get away from it all*. Property manager on site was SUPER HELPFUL and attentive. Hooked up up with EDUARDO as a chef, he was amazing. Would totally stay again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words! We too wish we had a speedier Internet connection but we are still dependent upon a 3G mobile WiFi router for now. The property development company just laid tubing around the property that will accommodate the local telco wiring so hopefully we'll have a real landline connection soon.

Great place for 3 families with young children. Beautiful outdoor living space with a nice pool, private rooms for each family and plenty of space. We loved the feel of being out in nature, but still enclosed and cool at night. The property owner couldn't have been more helpful, and the caretaker of the property was so pleasant and helpful. We almost felt like we had a private beach, too. We appreciated having some good recommendations for eating and activities and enjoyed several of them. We absolutely would recommend this place and had a terrific vacation.

Pura Vida

This home is a paradise. Perfectly located near the beach, with a gorgeous pool right in the center of the grounds. The open air kitchen and living area was perfect for us, with our kids, and the rooms were clean and comfy. IN addition, Craig was so incredibly helpful and attentive, both before and during our trip. We brought our girls, both under 3 years old, and had so many questions. Craig answered them all and made other suggestions too (even a local doctor when our older girl got an ear infection) which made the stay so much easier and enjoyable. Highly recommend this home, and this owner, to anyone looking for a costa rican getaway.

Short stroll (8-10 minutes) to the world-renowned Nosara Yoga Institute in Nosara and the beach is even closer!

Come surf one of the finest beach breaks in all of Central America. Great surfing for advanced to beginner. Good local surf shops and rentals.

Playa Guiones offers consistent, Pacific storm-generated surf 12 months a year, rotating between wintertime north swells and summertime souths and southwests. Winter winds are generally off-shore, and conditions vary from fun, small beach break and reef break waves, to river mouth points, to fast overhead beach break and point breaks, to outer-reef large surf.

Water temperature ranges from 80 to 86 degrees. Air temperature is consistently between 76 and 86 degrees, with relatively high humidity. Wetsuits are never needed. Beaches range from white to black sand, and extreme tidal conditions offer great opportunities for snorkeling, tide pool exploration, and shell collecting.
