Guanacaste Estate Rental Photos and Description

20 Private Bedrooms w/ Private Bathrooms + Additional Rooms, Sleeps 50+


A beautiful and unique destination property, Rayos Del Sol is the perfect setting for a group retreat that will leave you refreshed, renewed and empowered. Perched over the beautiful black sand beaches of Playa Ostional on the Pacific coast, our hilltop property was named for the rays of sun that it basks in from the waking hours to the sun’s fading afterglow.

Unforgettable family gatherings, corporate and health & wellness retreats are waiting for you on our private 25 acre tropical forest estate with stunning ocean views, pristine pool, yoga deck, outdoor fitness facilities and a fully equipped kitchen. Check out this video of a recent corporate retreat we had:

For more pics, visit this site;


8+ individual villas with 20 bedrooms – each with its private bathroom – are spread out over 25 acres of jungle forest, overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Some of the villas are close to each other, some of them more remote. A variety of bed arrangements are available. Additionally, children can camp out in our huge "bunk-room" that sleeps up to 5 youngsters.

At the common area complex, guests can enjoy the pool, lounge facilities, satellite TV, WiFi and drinks on our sunset terrace. The outdoor dining area kitchen and bar are also part of the common area. On the sunset terrace overlooking the ocean you will enjoy beautiful sunsets, yoga, meditation classes or just let yourself be carried away by the sound of the waves and birds. The forest is particularly musical just before sunset.


If you don't want to do your own cooking, we provide a healthy three meal-a-day plan for your group during your stay. Fresh local ingredients are always used in meal preparation, some from our own herb & veggie gardens and fruit trees (papaya, mango, passion fruit, water apple). Most of the eggs we use are from our own free-range chickens and ducks. The star of each meal seems to be the fresh baked bread from our wood-fired oven. But there is much more coming out from the oven; roasted chicken, fish, veggies, slow roasted pork, breakfast rolls and, almost forgot, amazing pizza! All this is prepared by our gourmet chef fresh, every day of your stay. We can offer you a variety of options for drink plans and we’ll work with you to provide the best option available. Please inquire for more details on meal and drink plan pricing!


There are over 4 miles of hiking trails on the property - one of them takes you to a beautiful waterfall along a meandering creek. For the more active and fit in your group, we have a 2-mile long obstacle course running along creeks, hills and valleys with over 20 obstacles, some not for your mother's eyes. There is also a 2000 sq ft outdoor gym area, with rope climbs, a 20 ft monkey bar, pull up rig, gymnastic rings and other equipment built into and out of the natural jungle surroundings. For larger groups of yoga enthusiasts, there is a 1,300 square feet terrace overlooking the ocean. We can organize daily yoga classes for your group with certified yoga instructors. We are happy to help you navigate the obstacle course challenges or give you guidance at the outdoor gym to the best of our abilities.

We can also help in planning your fun activities outside our property such as; ATV tours, zip lining, horseback riding, surf and paddle-board lessons, kayaking, massages, and more! Once you are here, our English speaking live-in staff will do everything to make your stay smooth and enjoyable.


For corporate retreats there is a 30+ seat, fully air conditioned conference room available for your group meetings.

Finally, if you’d like to avoid the hassle of renting cars for your large group, we can pick you up and drop you off at Liberia airport and provide transportation to local activities and beaches at an additional cost.

About Attila Grauzer

Attila and Niki, a father-daughter duo, have combined their shared love of Costa Rica with their shared gift for warm and genuine hospitality to create a truly unique destination vacation for adventurous souls. Niki has a vision and Attila has the technical know-how. Together, they have created a place where other families, fitness enthusiasts and business teams can come together and celebrate the inspiring beauty and endless bounty of this extraordinary tropical paradise.

About Attila: Started advertising our first home on HomeAway in 2008, currently my wife and I own and manage 6 vacation rental properties in Las Vegas.

This Costa Rica property is our latest addition to HomeAway. We have been coming to this "off the beaten track" area of Costa Rica since 2002, fell in love with the place and have owned it from 2011. It took 4 years to remodel, upgrade and make it to our liking. When we researched for similar properties on HomeAway, we found nothing like this.

We hope that the description/photos will convey the uniqueness of our property; privacy, beauty, serenity, fun, fitness, and adventure.

Attila Grauzer purchased this estate in 2011

Why Attila Grauzer chose Costa Rica

If you want to have an entire estate with seven individual villas on 25 acres of beauty and privacy all to yourself, with gourmet chef, live-in host and additional staff at your service, fitness facilities, this is the place. You will not find anything like this anywhere in Costa Rica.

What makes this estate unique

With 20 private bedrooms w/ private bathrooms, plus additional shared rooms sleeping over 50 people, the property provides lodging with complete privacy, while the common area brings everyone together.

Our gourmet chef can prepare all your meals, so no one in the group will miss out on anything. We can also provide complete meal packages to fit your schedule/budget.

And I believe the most unique feature of this property is the fitness aspect; we have a 2,000 sq ft outdoor gym, equipment for beach workouts and a 2 mile long obstacle course in the jungle.

average rating of 5.0 based on 8 reviews

Awesome Stay

  • 5 of 5

The trip to Rayos was really an amazing experience. The venue is really spectacular and the views, breath taking. The staff, was the most personable of any resort I've ever been to. It really made it seem as if you were visiting their home and reinforced that feeling throughout the entire stay. The food was impeccable. Each meal was fresh, well thought-out and delicious.

If you are looking for a place to stay for a large group, in a beautiful secluded beach retreat, Rayos is the place without a doubt. Would not hesitate to go back.

The Ultimate Group Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Rayos Del Sol was the best team retreat location I have ever been to! It has everything going for it, from amazing beach to unreal views from the jungle covered hills above. Attila, Niki and all the staff were phenomenal and i cant fault anything - other than our stay not being long enough :P.

You have tons of space to get away if you want on the property, a perfectly laid out communal area and kitchen/bar by the awesome pool with view, everything here has been though out very well to make group gatherings the best they can be. I was with a group that had to leave at 4am and there was Attila to say bye, along with breakfast ready to take with us in the shuttle back to the airport. Can't recommend this venue enough.

Gorgeous and unique jungle retreat location

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing trip! We rented Rayos Del Sol for a company retreat and it was all that I could have hoped for and more! We were a group of 30 people that work remotely so we were travelling from all over to spend a week relaxing in Costa Rica together. Niki and Attila went out of their way to work with me to ensure that all the little details were taken care of for our group, from transportation to surfing to Ziplining! Their chef and kitchen team were fantastic, the food was healthy, fresh and our group really loved eating family style. Fresh baked bread at every meal, yes please! The location is remote, but very relaxing and the pool was awesome to splash around in during the heat of the day. For a company retreat it was fantastic to have a private location for our team to work, bond and relax. I would recommend Rayos Del Sol to anyone interested in a unique jungle experience!

Hidden Jungle Gem with a Special Experience!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, where to start!

STAY: I loved that the resort was tucked away in the rolling hills between Ostional and Nosara. It is a hidden gem slightly off the beaten path of the local busy town. It's a great place to call "home"and retreat back to in between experiencing all that Costa Rica has to offer. It was like our own mini oasis in the jungle. My room was spacious with stunning views of the ocean. I loved that I could experience the wildness of the jungle (sometimes there were monkeys in the trees near by!) all around me while still having the luxury of AC and a great shower in my living space.

FOOD: Laura was wonderful.. our personal chef made a catered healthy menu to fit our needs all week long. Fresh local ingredients and fruit juices were staples in the kitchen. From the early morning coffee to the sunset margarita, our group was impressed. Make sure to ask for the avocado chocolate pudding for dessert! It's the best.

HOSTS: Attila and Nicole (father / daughter duo) made such warm and welcoming hosts. Having these two help book our daily activities on and off site made our adventurous trip as stress-free as possible. It gave me and my friends the opportunity to simply enjoy the experiences rather than having to organizing every single excursion. They were great with assisting with local etiquette and recommendations, too.

FITNESS: I’ve been to CR many times, never had I experienced such a uniquely tailored wellness program. The hosts arranged for a very balanced selection of group activities for my friends, ranging from climbing jungle obstacle courses onsite to surf lessons in town to yoga classes on various perches throughout the property. They really thought of it all.

I would recommend Rayos Del Sol to any group of friends, or co-workers to get away, and embrace the ruggedness and luxury that Costa Rica has to offer.

The Experience of a Lifetime!

  • 5 of 5

This property and its owners are amazing! If you are looking for a place for your extended family to stay or a retreat for several families, this is the spot. We were 24 relatives ages 13-87 and the needs of all age groups were exceeded. Yoga classes at sunset, group workouts and even an obstacle course kept teens and early 20s busy. There is also the pool, and a gorgeous black sand beach 1/2 mile away.

With Attila and Nicole's help, we took advantage of all the area activities such as surf lessons, ziplining (my 87 year old Mother was amazing!), ATV Tours, sport fishing, sunset cruises to swim with the turtles, paddleboarding and even witnessing the "Arribadas" on Ostional Beach. We were always sure to be back at the resort for the best food in town and the not to be missed sunsets each evening. Thank you Attila, Nicole, Eric, Tricia, Laura and staff for making all our dreams come true and then some! All 24 of us agree it was the trip of a lifetime and can't be topped!!

Unique and unforgettable.

  • 5 of 5

Brovilla is one of a kind. Nestled in beautiful jungle like setting, this property makes you feel both at home and far way from it all. The villas are all different and cozily appointed, within comfortable walking distance of the big central open air bar with restaurant and swimming pool. Breathtaking sunsets over the ocean. The owner, Attila, and his staff made us feel at home and did everything possible to make our stay a huge success. Highly recommend it!

The retreat is located in the middle of the three main surfing beaches in the area: Guiones, perfect for beginners and first timers; Ostional and Marbella for the more advanced. Ostional Beach is just a short walk from the property.

For the fitness enthusiast, there is a 2 mile long obstacle course (and hiking trail) on the property, featuring more then 20 obstacles, 10+ creek crossings, and hills to climb that would challenge the most fit athlete.
