Casa Nautilo grew from a desire to create a home that complements the unspoiled beauty of Nosara, and where the silence is broken only by the sounds of the surf and birdsongs. The property, situated on a small ridge 200 meters from the beach called for design elements that would capture the ocean breeze and take full advantage of the uninterrupted views of the ocean. The quiet, private Guiones Beach Club offers the ideal location for a home that promises to provide its guests with true indoor-outdoor living at the edge of the jungle and at the lip of the ocean.
Costa Rica’s natural wonders surround you at Casa Nautilo. The sun rises through the jungle to the east, pasture land stretches towards the hills to the south and to the west the sun sets over the ocean filling the horizon with ever-changing hues which can be seen from every room in the house or while cooling off in one of the two infinity pools. 100 meters away a private path leads to the most secluded stretch of Playa Guiones where the tide pools beckon. A short walk northward leads you to the town’s shops, cafes, and restaurants.
Casa Nautilo is two homes; the 4- bedroom Casa and the Casita. The main house sleeps 9 comfortably and the casita can accommodate 4. The houses can be rented together or separately.
The Casa has 3 master bedrooms with en-suite baths. The north upstairs bedroom (Cielo) is connected through a shared bathroom to an adjoining bedroom (Coco) which sleeps 3 (one queen bed and one bunkbed). The south master bedroom (Margarita) features a glass shower and a large soaking tub with views to the ocean. The main floor master bedroom (Azul) has sliding doors opening to the deck and pool. The master bedrooms can accommodate either twin or king beds. The master suites have large decks for lounging, quiet and efficient ceiling fans and floor to ceiling glass doors and screens allowing for cooling ocean breezes.
The central thatched roof “rancho” that flows to the large deck and infinity pool offers a gathering place for indoor-outdoor lounging, and entertaining. A floating spiral staircase made of local Guanacaste wood leads to a breezeway overlooking both the rancho and the ocean and leads to the upstairs bedrooms. Both homes have private outdoor showers and ample seating and lounging areas for afternoon siestas and star gazing. The kitchen offers all of the modern conveniences and a large island for morning and evening gatherings.
Designed with privacy in mind the Casita is the perfect “getaway”. The main floor has a fully equipped kitchen, powder room and dining area with French doors leading to the private deck, pool, and lawn. The couch in the living area is a comfortable sleeping option for two people; two twins that can be securely fastened to create a king.
The floating staircase leads to the Casita master bedroom with its large terrace, wall to wall glass doors and screens open to the ocean, vaulted cane ceiling, four-poster canopy bed, mini-fridge and a bathroom that features a soaking tub overlooking the ocean.
