Paradise Found

I recently stayed at the beach house in Guiones, Costa Rica 10 minutes drive from the Nosara, airport. The pictures on the web site do not do this property justice. The pool and outside living areas are secluded and surrounded by a veritable jungle of beautiful tropical plants and flowers. There are sunny & shaded areas to recline around the pool and Rancho, which is a wet bar with a refrigerator & freezer, convenient for making drinks and food for happy hour. The staff are courteous and friendly, constantly cleaning, tending to the lush foliage, cooking for you as an option. Rick the manager was available for any small thing that needed to be tended to, advice on the numerous restaurants, surf shops & Yoga facilities in the immediate area. The 2/2 Villas are comfortable & tastefully decorated in a Costa Rica motif using local woods & fabrics. The kitchen is very functional, with granite counter tops & everything you need to prepare great meals, which the chef did frequently. Everything about these condos was attractive inside & outside. The road to the beach [about 5 mins walk] is outside your door and is about 200 meters to the high tide line,as close as you are allowed to build in Guiones due to the conservation exclusion zone to preserve the natural beauty of the cove like beach with rocky bluffs on the north & south of it. Since the beach faces west the sunsets are absolutely amazing every night. There are numerous activities in the area like ATV rentals, surfing, yoga, ziplines,fishing for Sailfish & Marlins as well as spa services like massages of all sorts & types. It is a very relaxing place off the beaten track where you can really de-stress. I would highly recommend Guionis beach and the Beach House in particular.
