Overview

About the property

Get Away To This Private Local. Enjoy World Class Fishing And Surfing.

Casa Vistas Lindas is a secluded luxury villa perched atop the exclusive gated hillside Vista Royal community. It’s a tranquil, private setting on a huge lot surrounded by acres of undeveloped jungle. The location takes advantage of the awesome beach views of Guiones and Garza, as well as the constant, cool ocean breezes. Escape the noise, dust and even mosquitos from below in a safe environment with 24/7 security services. About the only sounds you will hear are those of the ocean or the wildlife that fill the canopy of trees between you and the beaches below.

This brand new luxury home is designed to integrate into its natural surroundings. With secure glass walls that slide away, the upstairs area opens to the outside world of fragrant ocean breezes and beautiful terraces. Relax in a huge hanging bed and view the lush natural landscape, complemented by plantings of Bogainvillea, Frangipanni, mango and citrus trees.

The downstairs bedrooms open to a vast common veranda that is enclosed in secure screens, allowing you the choice of an air conditioned bedroom or a secure outdoor setting. Sleep in paradise while enjoying nature’s symphony; cool, fragrant ocean breezes; and views of the ocean and jungle. Bathe indoors or out, tub or shower. With two outdoor hot and cold running showers, you can choose the jungle shower by the rancho or the ocean-view shower while you watch the sun set. For indoor luxury, relax in the huge custom tub or the double showers in the master bath.

State-of-the art electronics accent the natural beauty of this huge home. Each room and the pool area are interconnected with stereo speakers that can be individually controlled and can connect to musical choices from iPods, iPads, PCs, and the satellite music stations. With 60 and 55-inch flat panel smart TVs, and a surround sound home theater in the main area and master bedroom, your entertainment choices are many. A huge library of DVD’s and satellite channel options will keep you connected during your stay. A high speed Internet wifi system allows multiple users to remain in contact… or not. The security system is state-of-the-art in this gated community with 24/7 guard service, making the walk-in secure closet and laptop safes in the bedroom seem a bit unnecessary.

There are four bedrooms from which to choose. The master bedroom is massive and has a fully mirrored wall that exaggerates the expanse and romance of the room, paired with functional amenities such as a built-in desk and cedar cabinets. The master bath is large and offers a dual shower with classic touches of white and black tiles. The master bed is king-size, as is the bed in the large guest bedroom. All beds have new 800 count linens and pillow-top mattresses. The home also has a bunkroom that can sleep four on a custom-built teak bunk bed system. There’s even a surprise bedroom in the top of the poolside rancho that is separated from the main house and has two twin beds that can be joined if desired into a king. The room is air-conditioned and is ideal for guests or noisy teenagers.

The poolside rancho is a special place where you can use the gym equipment or practice yoga in a quieter area separate from the main home. The natural palm roofing with huge teak beams allow it to blend nicely into the jungle setting. It has a full bath, mini kitchen and refrigerator with a Big Green Egg charcoal grill where you can dine or relax poolside. It's also the perfect place to have that in-home massage that can be arranged at your convenience.

An outside chef can be arranged, or take advantage of the brand new gourmet kitchen with gas cooktop, electric oven, microwave, dishwasher, filtered water and huge walk in pantry that is stocked with a full spice rack and many condiments. Below the granite counter tops you will find a wine cooler to keep your wine chilled. Several sets of stemware and tableware are available, along with plastic settings for poolside dining. Open the kitchen window and snip fresh rosemary, basil, thyme or oregano to compliment your cooking. A coffee maker, toaster, and other standard kitchen items are there, as well.

Or dine out! Right at the bottom of the hill are several restaurant choices, some even beachside (not available in Guiones), or venture northward towards Guiones for additional casual and upscale dining choices. To the south about 20 minutes you’ll find even more choices in Samara. You are surrounded by choices, not just for dining, but also for yoga, surfing, and nature excursions via four wheelers to nearby waterfalls. But then, of course, you may choose to never leave the confines of Casa Vistas Lindas and no one would blame you. This property over delivers in every aspect, you will not be disappointed.

About David & Linda Cooper

David and Linda built their dream home. We take pride in our home and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do! We currently live close to Pensacola, Florida. We have searched Costa Rica for the perfect property for over 20 years. We finally have it and are happy to share it with you!

David & Linda Cooper purchased this villa in 2013

Why David & Linda Cooper chose Costa Rica

We enjoy the breathtaking views as well as the world class surfing and fishing. We feel very safe in this 24/7 gated community. The house was also built with the utmost detail to security for example: Crim Safe screens, impact resistant glass.

What makes this villa unique

We love to read and drink Costa Rican coffee on the hanging bed while looking over the ocean. You can also have an immediate surf report just by looking out your window.

Great house and great owners

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic family vacation. Our family of 5 loved the area and the house was a perfect place to hang out and relax after a day of surfing or exploring. The town of Garza, which is a small fishing village, is at the bottom of the hill and Guiones is about a 10-15 minute drive. The roads in Costa Rica are bad, but once you get used to them, it just adds to the adventure. David, the owner, was very helpful answering questions about the area, the house, car rentals, etc. Being up on the hill is definitely a plus as the views are amazing and the breezes cool things off and also keep the bugs in check. The house and descriptions were spot on and we had no surprises, which we really appreciated. We had Debbie cook dinner for us one night and would highly recommend her. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Cool place good vibe

  • 4 of 5

Pros:Took our family of 4 . House was nice with super views. Great mountain breeze on the main floor. Pool is well situated and clean. Pool area great for relaxing. Property felt safe. Chef was great and I highly recommend it. Chef was on time, shuttle on time, car rental was on time, and service from manager very helpful and timely when texted them. Garza beach is 5 minutes by car and has 2 small supermarkets. TV has plenty of channels for kids with large movie selection. We really enjoyed how the window doors can all be opened for an outdoor feel and great breeze, really cool at night.

Cons: we were not met by manager at the house on arrival which was disapointing, shuttle person had to help us. Wifi was not working for 2 days until someone came to fix it. It does go out frequently but it can be reset. AC is on a 9 hour timer in all the rooms, so only turn it on at night. We did not like how all the rooms are downstairs and seperated with different keys and there is another bedroom outside above pool. There was like 6 or 8 different keys as each door and screen door has a seperate key, kinda of inconvinient especially when and if you have to run up and down to get things. The house is a little far from guiones and nosara which took some getting use to as we would have enjoyed being closer to beach and restaurants.

Overall we would recommend staying at the house, we had a lot of fun and the owners were very easy to deal with and book the place.

Owner's Response: Due to flight delays this party arrived just before midnight and our property manager decided to ask the airport shuttle driver to open the home and give orientation. Since the driver had not been in the home before this In hindsight was a bad decision by the property manager and should not be reoccurring. The issues such as the guests misunderstanding of the keys and how to reset the wifi should have been resolved during the orientation and were immediately resolved once we learned of the problem. An unfortunate situation, our first, and hopefully the last. The home can be secured with one key another misunderstanding that should have been explained during orientation. To be exact the nearest beach and restaurants are in Playa Garza and less than 5 minutes down the hill and Playa Guiones is 15 minutes. A video detailing the homes floorplan is available to all potential guests and shows the three bedrooms downstairs are connected by a common breezeway and 2 are connected by common bath which is great for families that want to be close to the children a 4th bedroom is very private and located inside the pool house with really great views. The hilltop location for the home was selected for its naturally cool ocean breezes, absence of mosquitoes and the gated security which are features not attained by homes at sea level. We regret the inconvenience this guest experienced and have corrected the orientation issue with our property management team. We try to insure every guest experiences nothing but the best we can offer and look forward to serving you.

We didn't die but we were in HEAVEN

  • 5 of 5

Costa Rica at its finest! We arrived at the property and were amazed at the beauty before our eyes. It was the vacation of a lifetime! The home was stunning to behold, yet very comfortable for relaxing, inside and out. Great beds, cool breezes, stunning sunsets. The owner was very nice and informative about the house as well as the area. He responded to us very quickly and assured us of communication if we had ANY concerns while visiting. Everything was more than perfect and it is a five plus star vacation rental. It would also be a great home to reside in for those wishing to live in Costa Rica. I'd love to go again!!

A piece of Paradise like non other!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have traveled to Garza/Nosara many times over the last 15 years and stayed at some beautiful villas but Casa Vistas Lindas was by far the most spectacular! Meticulous attention to details are noticeable all throughout the home. Beautiful ocean and reef views can be seen on both sides of the home along with the sound of the waves rolling up the hills. Magical! We enjoyed CR coffee each morning pre-dawn and were treated to the sound of the hills coming alive with monkeys and parrots, a perfect way to start the day!! Guiones is just a short drive away but it is always nice to return to the quiet solitude of Vista Royal and Casa Vistas Lindas. This is a home we will yearn to return to but will despair to leave.

Great Place to Get Away from It All!

  • 5 of 5

This was a marvelous home with modern amenities and spectacular views (ocean views to west from balcony and south from living room) from high on a hill. The kitchen is fully stocked if you plan on eating in a lot (we did, including having a private chef for 2 nights). We grilled tuna on the grill by the pool with the Big Green Egg-type grill. Delicious. Plus, TONS of Tupperware containers for leftovers! David, the owner, was great to work with, giving lots of good tips and sharing videos prior to our arrival. We had a small maintenance issue and he was right on it. The property had beautiful grounds thanks to a gardener that showed up every other day, and the pool was to die for, since every day was in the 90's during our stay. No mosquitoes at all up on the hill, but you will see ants. The balcony has a big swing couch and great breezes. The house is in a gated community with a security gate for the home as well. We felt very safe. Please note - a 4W DR is an absolute must, all your drives are on unpaved roads (and unmarked, BTW). We took a Limo from the airport and rented a 4-Runner in Guiones. Due to some flight delays, we arrived after dark. There would have been absolutely no way we could have found the house without the limo driver (we are regular WAZE users, but it lead us wrong a few times we were here, plus uses up massive roaming charges). Once you get the 4WD - go exploring! We went to 2 beautiful beaches about 4 miles south (Playa Barrigona and Playa Barco Quebrado) and saw a total of 10 people. No amenities at Barrigona, but a family sells cold coconuts (for about a $1) from their house on Barco Quebrado, plus offers a nice shaded place to drink them. We did zip lines at Miss Sky - about 7 miles in 13 runs! My wife and daughter did yoga at Nosara Yoga Institute and Bohdi Tree. Sportfishing with FishingNosara netted our daughter and I four sailfish and we saw two whales and a school of at least 1000 porpoises on the way back. Plenty of nice, open air restaurants in Guiones, we especially liked Harmony Hotel. The beach in Guiones is best if you want access to cold cervezas, surfboard rentals and the like. Heard howlers every day but couldn't see them, then one morning we woke up and a troop of about 10 were in a tree right by the pool! We would definitely rent this home again.

Great house, great view

  • 5 of 5

This house is clean, comfortable and beautiful. It has a fabulous view. We had 2 families staying here and there was tons of space for privacy as well as group dinners and socializing. The pool is very nice and there is plenty of shade and gorgeous landscaping. We had a family of howler monkeys hanging out with us on our last day which was a huge bonus. You are about 20 minutes to Guiones Beach - we went there every day. Not a problem to park and the beach is gorgeous. There are no mosquitoes up at the house. The air conditioning worked well in the bedrooms at night. David, the owner, is helpful and responsive. I would be happy to rent this house again.
