House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 5.5 Baths, (Sleeps 15)

Lot J47 - CASA CRISTAL DE MAR

Casa Cristal de Mar (Sea Glass House) was recently renovated with major upgrades & additions throughout. We have set our home up for our frequent visits, with every convenience available for us and now YOU.

This house is set up for pure relaxation. Surf, walk, or run on the beautiful miles long white sand beach just a short two minute walk from the house.

Hang out in one of two hammocks while reading that book you have been meaning to finish or start up a game of ping pong. Hang out in the Rancho as you watch the monkeys in the trees above you. Each bedroom has its own full bath and private entrance off of the patio with total privacy. Perfect for four couples or two families.

If you have to bring your work with you or just stay in touch with family and friends, bring your computer and connect with our WiFi connection and plug into our Magic Jack phone for FREE calls to the US and Canada.

About Donnelle Weaver

We are a very busy family of 5 from Manhattan Beach, CA. Dad and the teen boys are avid surfers and think that Costa Rica is 'off the hook' for surfing !! They hope to get our youngest daughter to join them out on the Playa Guiones waves soon (she stood up her first time out !!). Mom just enjoys strolling the beach in search of amazing shells and sea glass. We will be visitors to our home often, and eventually plan to make Guiones our part time retirement home.

Donnelle Weaver purchased this house in 2010

Why Donnelle Weaver chose Guanacaste

After only one visit to Playa Guiones, we knew we wanted to buy property there and build our future retirement home. On our second visit, we rented this home and found out it was on the market. Soon after returning home, we gave up our search for a vacant lot and made an offer on this property. Gary has always had such a great eye for making things the best they can be - and so began our newest project - a new addition and remodel of our new home away from home.

What makes this house unique

We absolutely LOVE the location of this property. It is just a short walk to anything and everything !! Playa Guiones is truly special and we couldn't feel more blessed to have a home there.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time and the house was fabulous. The four bedrooms, the outdoor dining table, bar, ping pong table and bocce court were wonderful. The house was well maintained and did not have that “rental” feel. Thanks again and we look forward to another visit.

Wonderful location! Lovely home!

  • 5 of 5

We had two families, total of 8, stay at Casa Cristal for spring break and it was lovely! Lots of room to relax around the pool. The four bedrooms gave us plenty of room and we could even watch the NCAA finals and the Masters on the TV in the family room. The kitchen was great and we enjoyed having the cook a few nights too! The ping pong table was a big hit with the kids and they loved walking to the beach everyday to surf! We went fishing one day and caught 4 sailfish! Great house to rent for a surfing and fishing vacation!

Great location, beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

We had 5 families totalling 16 people staying for a week at Casa Cristal. We were able to sleep all 16 comfortably. We loved the outdoor kitchen, and the pool deck area was perfect. There was always a spot on or near the pool deck where we could find shade. It was a very quick stroll to an amazing beach with fantastic surfing. Overall, I would highly recommend Casa Cristal.

Great Rental for a large group

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 9 stayed here in January and had a fantastic time. The house has everything you could need for an unforgettable vacation. We loved cooking and hanging out in the open kitchen and lounging by the pool. The layout and location of this property are excellent. The bedrooms are large and well appointed - it was great to have the extra bathrooms for a large group. We really appreciated the games, ping pong table and ring toss for evening entertainment. the proximity to the beach access, and shops and resto's was great. our group took surf lessons at Coconut Harry's; Kayak and Horseback riding tours from Boca Nosara, and Yoga classes at Harmony Hotel.

The only difficulty we had was at first trying to figure out where to buy groceries since we didnt have a car - but we rented an ATV from a place down the street for $35 and went to the large supermercado in Nosara. Once we had that figured out - we were very happy at Casa Cristal Del Mar.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Crystal for a week in December and we loved every second of our stay. The rooms were great, cleaning staff amazing, kitchen perfect. The location is the best. I am leaving a recommendation because Donnelle asked me too - but I really don't want to for fear that it will be rented when I want to go back ;). Can't recommend this place enough.
