Location: Playa Guiones, Nosara, Costa Rica
Casa Arena y Mar, completed in late-2018, is a 3BR/4BA home in the heart of the convenient J Section of Playa Guiones. Situated near the Harbor Reef Hotel and the Beach Dog Cafe, you will be a leisurely 4-minute stroll to the beach (300 meters). You can literally hear the waves rolling in from this property.
Casa Arena y Mar is part of the Nosara community in committing to encourage environmental practices. The home uses solar power for its electricity and has a saline pool. The construction materials and furnishings have been locally sourced, whenever possible. Guests are encouraged to recycle and be considerate of their use of water and electricity during their stay.
Designed to combine the luxury of indoor/outdoor living, the full glass and screen doors of the main living area can be either partially opened or completely disappear into the walls to create openness to the pool area, or kept shut to protect against the elements. This property is fully enclosed with native landscaping, mature trees, and a lush hillside behind the home which combine to provide a sense of serenity and seclusion. The large pool has a shallow area for young children or lounging lazily while sipping a cold drink, and several small waterfalls to add to the property's peaceful qualities.
The kitchen is fully equipped and includes stainless steel appliances and an induction range top (hot for the pan, cool to the touch, so safe for the kids!). Attention to detail including handmade Guanacaste wood furniture and accents, built by a local family, throughout the home; non-slip surfaces around the pool; unique stone sink basins; and Caesarstone countertops.
There are 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, plus a main floor powder room. Each bedroom includes a ceiling fan, an en-suite bathroom, creating three Primary suites, as well as its own air condition unit. The main floor Primary steps out to the pool in the front. In addition to the indoor shower, you can step out into a large, outdoor garden shower that is fully enclosed. Upstairs, the second Primary suite opens to a French balcony overlooking the pool, while the third Master suite opens to a balcony overlooking the hillside jungle.
The indoor dining room seats eight and has a dramatic two-story ceiling height. The outdoor dining area and outdoor bbq kitchen were renovated in 2021. Casa Arena y Mar has a covered outdoor dining area for 8 people and a covered bbq area including custom tile, a new gas grill, wine refrigerator, open shelving and sink for all of your entertaining needs. You can be dining poolside listening to the waterfalls.
A new outdoor lounge area was added in 2021, with built-in cushioned seating, a large terrazzo table, and overhead lighting, all surrounded by the jungle and mature landscaping. This private area is a great place to socialize, kick up your feet and enjoy a glass of wine after a day at the beach. Also, a covered, private yoga shala that overlooks the jungle was added in 2021. The yoga shala is completely private where you will only hear the sounds of birds and monkeys as you focus on your daily yoga or meditation practice. A wicker hammock hangs in the corner of the shala for a perfect spot to read or relax.
The location of Arena y Mar could not be better! Whether it is a day at the beach, practicing yoga at Harmony Hotel or Bodhi Tree, walking to shops, or dining at your favorite restaurant, you can throw on your flip flops, leave your car parked, and enjoy the tranquility of Playa Guiones. Pura Vida!
