Jade is an inspiring retreat nestled where jungle meets the Pacific at Playa Guiones, a place for exploration of what is natural within ourselves, and the transcendent natural beauty of the flora and fauna that surrounds us there. Jade was created by architect Donald Loria Prendas, the five free standing master suites are arranged around the covered #Yoga pavillion and large swimming pool which also serves as a soothing water feature. Jade sleeps 18 and is intended for families and closed groups desiring a private, yet unobstructed atmosphere.
Each of these suites is a free-standing pavilion; the pavilions are arranged around the covered, elevated Yoga platform (which would be ideal for a wedding ceremony, dinner party, reception, stage for live music performance, or other event) and the large swimming pool which also serves as a soothing and beautiful water feature.
In addition to the five suites, two bunk houses each contain two sets of bunk beds (each of the two bunk houses has 4 beds); each bunk house has one en suite bathroom. The villa compound sleeps a total of 18 people. It's ideal for an extended family, small group, Yoga retreat, surfing retreat, destination wedding, or for any group of people who want to be together in a very comfortable, secure, private environment -- and have the ability to spend time away from the group as well.
The maximum occupancy is strictly enforced. If you anticipate the possibility of having a group that exceeds the occupancy stated for this accommodation, then you should either book different accommodations that allow for a higher occupancy, or book additional accommodations (such as a second condo or villa). Guests who exceed the stated occupancy will be evicted with no refund for the unused portion of their stay.
Unlike most coastal tourist towns, nearby Nosara lacks nearly any development directly on the beach as much of it consists of the Ostional Wildlife Refuge (necessitated by the presence of breeding Olive Ridley and Leatherback sea turtle populations). Nosara is also a surfing destination and the location of a world-renowned Yoga school.
The town center of Nosara is located 6 km inland from the beach. Within "Nosara town" is the market, pharmacy, post office, churches, school, police station, public library and Red Cross clinic (Nosara lacks a hospital facility). There is a Banco Popular branch located in the small commercial area near Playa Guiones.
There are four main oceanfront communities each named after their respective beaches: Playa Nosara, Playa Guiones, Playa Pelada, and Playa Ostional. These comprise the largest areas of foreign-owned residences, hotels and restaurants, centered around Guiones and Pelada. The "suburb" Esparanza de Nosara borders the Playa Guiones area, sitting between its first two beach entrances to the south. Esparanza hosts the Guiones area's largest market, a school and soccer (football) field, and a few new housing developments, hotels, and restaurants.
This home was conceived and is furnished and appointed as a minimalist Zen retreat. Security is provided from 6 PM to 6 AM. Daytime security can be arranged at an additional charge to the guest.

Just as Costa Rica provides inspiration as one of the world’s protected sanctuaries, abundant in nature’s exotic gems. Jade is an inspiring retreat nestled where jungle meets the Pacific at Playa Guiones, a place for exploration of what is natural within ourselves, and the transcendent natural beauty of the flora and fauna that surrounds us there. This native shelter of teak, concrete and water seamlessly blend with gardens and canopy for an intimate connection between architecture and nature, comfort and inspiration. Interconnected spaces invite the flexible movement of a sensory experience between living and dreaming.
