An elegant, unique boutique retreat located a stone’s throw from the burgeoning hub of Nosara, Costa Rica. The New York Times, CNN and National Geographic have all given mention to Nosara as being one of the top ten tourist destinations. You will also find a mecca for yoga enthusiasts and surfers alike. Nosara attracts people from all over the world and is becoming one of the fastest-growing expat communities. Ahki Retreat is a private, intimate yet spacious retreat rental nestled amongst 5.5 mountain acres. We are located on the Pacific coast, in the Guanacaste region of Costa Rica, on the Nicoya Peninsula- tagged as one of the 5 Blue Zones in the world, where people are said to live the longest, happiest and healthy lives. Imbued with panoramic views of lush, green mountainsides, blue ocean waters, plentiful sunshine, and with its accessible location, AHKí is the perfect destination for retreats. As remote as AHKí feels, overlooking Playa Garza and Playa Guiones, we are only minutes away from beaches, kayaking, horseback riding, world-famous Nosara surfing, zip-lining, nature hikes, shopping, restaurants and more. What is so unique about Ahkí is that it truly is a sacred space - built specifically according to the ancient science of Vastu Shastra, \"the yoga of space\", invoking peace, wellness, and harmony. A true, Vastu built dwelling helps to maximize the flow of positive, healing energy throughout. Ahki is the ONLY Vastu retreat located in Costa Rica - a great asset, as more people are now becoming more conscious of living healthier lives and the benefits of getting closer to nature. Ahki consists of a 7,000 sq ft, Main House area that includes a fully stocked professional kitchen, dining for 20, a library/lounge, half bath, a treetop yoga studio with stellar panoramic views of the mountains and sea, beautiful swimming/reflecting pool sporting two ranchos with hanging day-beds, a private room guest with A/C and full bath that can be used as live-in staff quarters or for visiting group leaders, laundry room, office and private owner’s quarters. There is also a two-car garage with workshop.A few steps down the hillside are six, valley-view guest rooms accommodating 3 people, each with private baths with indoor/outdoor showers, large windows, and doors with plenty of ventilation. There are two lovely ranchos that are used for massage therapy and healing treatments.With a flair for Asian design, all structures are concrete block and dark wood, with a beautiful finish of Venetian plaster, including the floors - super easy maintenance. The entire space has been outfitted and custom-built locally by Costa Rican craftsmen, including doors, windows, lighting, furniture, bookcase, lounge chairs and more. The pool is surrounded by an expansive, limestone patio. This space has been painstakingly designed by the owner herself, who lives on-site, with the pure intention of creating a unique, warm and welcoming “home-away-from-home” feel.Although the premises are maintained predominantly as a retreat space rental, this location could also be used as a private home or private vacation rental for investment purposes.
