This peaceful beachfront property is nestled in the coastal jungle of the Ostional Wildlife Refuge along the shoreline of the world’s most consistent set of surf-able waves at Playa Guiones, Nosara. This private hacienda is known as Tres Olas and provides tranquil spaces for each guest to relax and unwind, gather and connect, and most importantly traverse the private path to the unspoiled beauty of the Pacific Ocean. Connect your senses to the rhythm of the jungle through the energetic sound of Howler monkeys, the visual brilliance of a million stars at night, the delightful freshness of organic Costa Rican cuisine, the vibrant scent of tropical foliage, and the physical touch of a yoga mat, a warm wave, or sand between your toes.
With three physical structures consisting of a four-bedroom main house, a two-bedroom guest house, and an optional studio apartment, Tres Olas draws you in with unique, balanced, and spacious rooms that sit quietly surrounded by the native gardens. Views are framed by vaulted teak ceilings and matte, slip-resistant large format tile. Water quality is eco-friendly and features a triple filtered water bottle filling station in the main house kitchen, three solar water heaters, and a whole-house ultraviolet filtration system. Referencing the traditions of Costa Rica, simple forms, natural coloration, and artisanal fixtures are in every part of Tres Olas.
Custom Granada Tile reflects the subtle colors of the beach, while modern cleanliness pulls the entire property into visual focus. Copper and bronze are highlighted with faucets, recessed lighting, and oversized fans, while natural fabrics and finishes adorn couches, lounge chairs, side tables, and art. Custom rattan, hemp, and teak lighting are found throughout; further 100% sustainable solid tropical hardwood and traditional artisan furniture by Masaya & Co provides color accents in lounge chairs and the decorative bench at the center of the main living room. There is no difficulty in finding a cozy corner or the perfect gathering spot.
Individual bedrooms incorporate an aesthetically appointed ensuite full bathroom and open plan closet system. The main house has a King master (2), a King guest (2), a Double Queen (2-4), and a four Twin XL bunk (4) room. The guest house has both a King master (2) and a Double Full (2-4) room. The optional apartment has a King studio (2). An additional half bath is at hand for guests. The U.S. sized mattresses are Costa Rican manufactured by Jirón and dressed with specialty bed linens by Restoration Hardware. For ease of travel, amenities abound, including locally sourced Raw Botanical hair and body products, plush bath towels and face cloths, blow dryers, and dimmable and abundant lighting for getting dressed or setting a mood. Every bedroom has its own safe or locker, a Carrier air conditioner, and a Haiku ceiling fan with wireless remote controls.
Each home has a fully stocked kitchen and dining space. The main house is prepped for catering services and includes GE Café Appliances in matte white with brushed bronze accents. A gas range with a convection double oven, a french door refrigerator, a dishwasher, an over-sized copper sink, a bronze prep sink, a pantry with refrigerator, microwave, and ice maker, plus an abundance of smaller appliances, open up the brilliance of your own chef de cuisine. 14 to 18 guests can dine together under the massive rancho, and just as many may lounge, siesta, or read as a refuge from the intense afternoon sun. Outside a large grill is housed under its own rancho.
