About George

Your host in the infinity pool overlooking the sunset enjoying the view and some coktails. We built our house from scratch. It has all the comforts of home with a Costa Rican touch.

George purchased this house in 2005

Why George chose Guanacaste

We visited this area a few years ago; and when I visited his place I fell in love with Costa Rica all over again. I have been vacationing here since 1991 but was a little discouraged with all the building that was going in other areas of Costa Rica. Then I found Playa Coyote, WOW.....Playa Coyote is still undiscovered by the crowds of tourists. Very pristine compared to the areas of Flamingo, Jaco, Quepos, Nosara, Playa Del Coco, Mal Pais, Sante Teresa, Samara and Tamarindo. If you want crowds go to those places I just mentioned, if you want peace and tranquility come to Playa Coyote and the other small villages in this area.

What makes this house unique

The beach here is 10+miles long, and there will be many times when you are the only one on the beach. If you enjoy waking up to the sounds of birds and howler monkeys my place is for you. If you enjoy Great Sunsets and Great Views my place is for you. The name of the game around here is RELAX....RELAX....and more RELAX. If you are looking for crowds and a bar scene find another place, PLAYA COYOTE is a place to ENJOY THE BEACH, UNWIND, EXPLORE, and ENJOY NATURE.

Lives up to its name!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet retreat with marvelous sunset views, easy access to an uncrowded beach, and a rural ambiance that comes with a few good restaurants then this is the place for you. For nature lovers, the coatimundis come right up to the patio and the birding in the area is good. For those who like comfort in the midst of a hillside forest, the bedrooms are large and the beds comfortable, the AC and washer/dryer work well and the infinity pool is refreshing on a hot day. For the adventuresome, there are interesting areas to explore around this less developed part of the Nicoya peninsula. While the roads are unpaved, directions at intersections were surprisingly well marked. Rafael, of Rancho Loma Clara in San Francisco de Coyote, was a great "host" for our week in the area. George, the owner, is very responsive to questions and concerns. This rental is at the top our list when we return to this area!

Amazing view!! Serene--lovely quiet--just what we wanted.

  • 3 of 5

We were thrilled with location! We wanted someplace very quiet with few people--and was just what this provided. Waking up to birds, howler monkey's was divine. The sunsets were beyond gorgeous. Long walks on what seemed like a private beach as there were so few people. Loved the little village of San Francisco and the adventure of getting there on dirt roads---just what we expected. The beach is very shallow---and the water literally warm--perfect escape from 4 feet of snow---this is truly a spot in Costa Rica for people who want privacy and solitude. That said, we had great food at the small restaurants in San Francisco. George was very helpful in directing us with amenities. We were a happy couple and plan to return and stay longer!!

Awesome Location and Wildlife

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I (in our 40s) stayed at Sublime Obsession while visiting the southern tip of the Nicoya Peninsula for the first time. We loved the area - not overly developed but with enough to do to keep us occupied for a week. The roads are bumpy, but if you've driven on gravel roads before, this is nothing new. Attractions in the area that we visited: Samara, Nosara, Guiones, then further south towards Playa Coyote: Punta Islita (visit the ARC Project to see Scarlet Macaws close up and personal), and Playa San Miguel (Rhodeside has yummy iced coffee and cinnamon buns). We went as far south as Santa Theresa (typical surf town). We also visited the Karen Mogensen Reserve (swim in pools in a river; very refreshing after a 20 minute, or so, hike). Playa Coyote is a beautiful long stretch of beach. We spent the afternoon of Good Friday on the beach and enjoyed people watching and listening to music (someone had brought a radio). This is an excellent property from which to view wildlife - every morning (around 5:30 to 6:00 a.m.) the monkeys would come down and swing from the trees. There's also a coatimundi that likes to drink from the pool. The villa is private so no noisy neighbours - perfect for what we wanted. We'd recommend this property to individuals who don't mind driving on gravel/dusty roads to reach their destination and who like to take in wildlife and local culture. The villa itself was very comfortable and the view is breathtaking. Thanks George!

Immerse Yourself in The Local Culture!

  • 5 of 5

Do you like adventure? Do you like immersing yourself in the local culture? Do you like to getaway from the regular tourist towns and become one with the people and the region? If so, then this is the vacation of your dreams. We stayed in this beautiful home with our friends. The house has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master suite is on the 2nd floor and the one we enjoyed. Very private from the rest of the house. Perfect for a romantic getaway too. The house was modern and well equipped. BUT, the most exciting thing about the house was the magnificent panoramic view of the pacific ocean. The view was to die for! We enjoyed the beautiful sunsets every night and made it a ritual to take lots of pictures and videos so we can remember the glorious sunset forever. We also enjoyed the infinity fish shaped pool! We spent most late afternoons and evenings enjoying the pool and getting good photos and videos of the sunset over the infinite pool. Fabulous!

The town was quaint and quite lovely. Raael of the Rancho Loma Clara was an absolute gem and life saver! He was our 'go to' guy for questions we had or for anything we needed. He speaks fluent English too. Whatever we needed, he would either arrange it or help us to find it. He not only gave us information, but he also arranged to have meat delivered for us from the local butcher and he helped us find a hotel for one of our excursions north of the region of where we were staying. All the towns people we met were very helpful and accommodating and tried very hard to understand my high school Spanish.

The only down side of the trip was the roads in the southern region of the country. I read that they were bad, but didn't expect them to be quite that bad. Upon speaking to some locals, we found out that the normal 'revamping' of the roads that usually happens after the rainy season did not occur as of yet and even the locals were upset about it. But, as they say, 'when in Rome...' Had I know this sooner I would have rented an large SUV instead of the tiny one we wound up with.

All in all, we had quite an adventure and we will cherish it for years to come. We recommend it to those who have an adventurous spirit or those who are just looking to relax and to get away from it all.

Remote Retreat

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I and another couple rented this home for two weeks. Beautiful sunsets,pool, wild life and near by beaches.

The roads to the house were wash board, boulder covered and a full size 4 wheel drive with large tires is a must. The house was hot when we arrived but once the padlocks and chains were taken off the doors and we could open the sliding doors there was a breeze. The screens were broken, so we had giant spiders and frogs in the house. The pool area has no shade and the patio chairs are falling apart. The pool was fabulous.There was a tv, but no satellite and the DVD player did not work. Internet and cell service worked intermittently.

You must bring all your supplies: soap, toilet paper and everything for the kitchen, plus something for the ants, we used cayenne pepper. The washer and dryer worked great. The bathrooms were very nice, but the masterbath toilet was plugged when we arrived so we had to purchase a plunger. The beds had plastic covers on the mattresses and were annoying but necessary, since the air conditioner leaked in the downstair bedroom.The instructions were lacking: did not include DVD operation, how to clearly connect to WiFi, days for pool service, trash pick up and when to expect cleaning people. Electricity temporarily went off 3 of the 9 days we were there.

Casa Caletas hotel and restaurant was the closest restaurant and with road conditions we ate there almost every night. It has an extensive menu and was very good. Loved seeing the iguanas, sheep, raccoons, geckos while we ate! Beautiful sunset and a working TV at the bar. W enjoyed Rios restaurant in Coyote.

That being said, if you are adventure seeker and need to get away, this is the place for you. A very quiet place, fabulous sunsets, and beaches.The monkeys, butterflies, birds, geckos and iguanas are your neighbors!

Owner's Response: Karen thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am in the process of addressing the deteriorating patio chairs and will now make sure the screens are also taken care of. Not being on site I use the feedback I receive from guests like you to make improvements as soon as they are brought to my attention. The pool is serviced 2 times a week, and the cleaning person only comes by once a week. The garbage is usually handled by turning it over to the pool person as he is also in charge of that service. There is no garbage service in this area of Costa Rica and most of it disposed by the property owners. Unfortunately I don't have any control of the roads, electricity, phone service and Wi-Fi, and therefore can not make any changes to those things. It would have been easier for you if you would have contacted Vivian, my caretaker, to fix the DVD and toilet or for any other issue you encountered during your stay, since that is what I contracted her to do. Not being present in Costa Rica; I make every effort to make things as comfortable for all my guests as a I can. After your visit; there was an issue with the A/C Unit, and I was able to resolve that situation very quickly for those guests even though I was doing it remotely from the United States and not physically there in Costa Rica. As you stated in your review, this is a very remote area of Costa Rica and problems take a little longer to get resolved there. Again Thank you for taking the time to write this review. George
