Unusually private, with uncommonly spacious and light filled rooms. A mixture of antique, classic and handmade furnishings make this home unique.There are many wonderful restaurants in the area, both casual and more upscale, in which to dine and a modern supermarket is close by for stocking up the kitchen with fresh local produce.
You will feel completely safe in the secure, elegant gated community of Vista Royal.
Enjoy swimming or snorkeling on nearby on secluded beaches, fish, take a canopy tour or surf the famous Playa Guiones a short drive away. The water is one of the 2 warmest spots in the Pacific. Surfing schools offer instruction for kids and adults. Do yoga at the Nosara Yoga Institute or Harmony Hotel, get a relaxing massage, or just relax and read amid lush plantings with ocean, jungle and mountain views in the upscale, gated community of Vista Royal, away from bugs, heat, dust and traffic! Because we are in such a high location, you will need a car for short drives to beaches and restaurants.
Wake up to the sounds of the ocean, monkeys and parrots as you enjoy your delicious Costa Rican coffee, fresh pineapple, and local bakery delights as you watch the waves breaking on the Pacific. Or see the spectacular sunsets off the terrace over a dinner of fresh vegetables and fish from the local market.
Both of us are avid travelers, my life as a Ford model allowed me to enjoy locations all over the world, and Norm's career in sales in the semi conductor area often took him to Europe and Asia and around the U.S. We met at Middlebury College in Vermont, and finally got reacquainted and married in 1993, deciding to live in the beautiful Hamptons on the East End of Long Island, where we are active in community projects. Between us we have 9 grandchildren, spread out from California, to Alaska, to Montana.
We loved the beauty and unspoiled quality of the environment of Nosara and Playa Guiones and Garza. The people are so kind and helpful, full of joy. The combination of the ocean and mountains reminded us of Hawaii. The restaurants are inexpensive, with sophisticated, delicious food. The quality and standards of the Vista Royal development also had great bearing on our commitment to build and success of our endeavors.
Contrary to properties closer to Playa Guiones, we are in a SAFE, gated community, enjoying the most fantastic views, with wonderful, helpful neighbors, near great restaurants, grocery stores, plus Playa Garza's incredible tide pools. A short drive from Playa Guiones tide pools and surfing beach. The house is fully equipped to make your stay enjoyable, comfortable beds and lounges, plus a wonderful cook and babysitter are available.
Your house is very beautiful and comfortable. We really like it here and the weather is exquisite.
Our family has occupied the home for the past 12 months. This home is ideal for an one week rental or an extended vacation. The properties is situated over 500 feet above sea level overlooking the Pacific Ocean. We have enjoyed the amazing views during the day and the magnificent stars at night. The property has a nice refreshing ocean breeze, wonderful views from the two large master bedrooms, living room area, dining and kitchen area. We have appreciated the benefits of the gated private neighborhood which offers security and safety while at the same time quietness & privacy. We have learned that this is one of the most desired and unique communities in the area. The property has a very impressive longterm staff, with regular housekeeping, yard & gardening and pool service. The interior is clean, uniquely designed with an functional and open layout. The grounds are well manicured with ample fresh floral year around. Our family has enjoyed picking fresh bananas, mangos, papaya, and limes throughout the year.
The pool area, large outdoor dining area, covered patio, hammock and sun chairs is what we have enjoyed the most with the property and will have memories to last a lifetime.
The owners are wonderful to work with. They are excellent communicators, great property managers, respond quickly and are truly good people and it has been a privilege to be their guest.
In viewing many different properties over the past year in the region, we have found this property to be special and unique in every aspect.
We stayed here back in 2011, I think. We had a wonderful vacation. The house is comfortable and the pool is amazing. A cool-down swim is a perfect way to spend the afternoon. Town and the beach get so hot and the breeze on the hill is nice. The owners were extremely helpful and all the suggestions of what to do (surfing and ziplining), where to eat (we liked La Luna), and where to buy vegies (the truck will be in town on such and such day) were great. Would return in a heartbeat.
We absolutely loved Vista Bonita! Our family of 5 visited Costa Rica for Spring Break. The weather was absolutely perfect everyday! During our stay, we did a zip line tour and an atv tour. We really enjoy both of those. We visited several restaurants. Our favorite was LaLuna.
The home was lovely and the back porch was amazing! We would go to town or to the beach everyday but found ourselves wanting to hurry back to the house to swim and relax in the hammock. The views were amazing. We can't wait to return soon!
It's a beautiful home. We stayed for three weeks and really got to explore Nosara and other beach towns. It's not within walking distance to a beach, but the drive up the side of the mountain is well worth it -- the view is spectacular. The sunsets off the deck were amazing. Norm and Bonnie were very responsive and easy to work with. We recommend the house and loved staying there!
You couldn't get a more beautiful location than this house. The sunsets were breathtaking. The house is very clean, and quiet. The kids loved the pool and my mom enjoyed being on the other side of the house from me, my husband and kids. We were lucky to meet Norm and Bonnie (the owners) while we were there and they really helped us out with one of their computers and gave great advice as to what to see and where to eat. Just down the driveway from the house we saw baby monkies and their momma's. Amazing!! I would recommend this house to anyone. I often think about our trip and stay here, and wish I was back!!
You know it's going to be a great vacation when the house you're staying in is nicer than your own back home!
We had a three generation family vacation here, and it was divine. The house is gorgeous, the views spectacular, and there's nothing like waking to the sound of monkeys in the morning (although someone could try to convince them to wait another hour or two...).
The owners of the house have thought of everything -- pool noodles for the kids, plenty of extra towels for the beach, a blender for those poolside cocktails in the evening -- and were incredibly responsive before, during and after our stay at the house.
The nearest village, Playa Garza, is just delightful, and we had lots of fun playing soccer with local kids and swimming at the beach. The owners recommended the zipline tour (Miss Sky), which is just a short drive away. It was one of the highlights of our entire stay in Costa Rica. We didn't want to leave! Thank you!
Enjoy a wraparound view of The Pacific on the 60 ft, completely private terrace and saltwater infinity pool..Located in a safe, elegant, gated community in Playa Garza, next to Playa Guiones, one of the two warmest beaches in the Pacific. The longest zipline ride in Costa Rica is nearby.. Wildlife and flowers abound. Excellent deepsea fishing and the famous Nosara Yoga Institute are minutes away. Ride horses on the beach. Delicious cuisine in casual inexpensive restaurants, plus wonderful local produce markets and limes and bananas in our garden make for culinary delights! Very upscale furnishings and spacious rooms with gorgeous views.
