Welcome to Villa Enlightened, a brand-new house completed in 2023! This property is truly the best of both worlds! An amazing unobstructed view of Playa Guiones...yes, you can see the waves and walk to the beach, Bodhi Tree, and town. After entering through a security gate, you will be greeted by a beautiful waterfall to follow the paved driveway up a steep incline to a secluded jungle oasis. Truly a magical property...there is nothing else quite like it in Nosara.
Villa Enlightened’s tropical modern vibe is designed to bring the outside in. The massive glass walls allow you to absorb the jungle and ocean views on all sides. Every room has a fabulous view…even the casita. The house has beautiful concrete floors and local teak ceilings. The décor is minimalist because the focus is on the beauty that surrounds it. With solar panels capturing the sun’s energy, a bionest for water treatment and repurposing (for landscape irrigation), as well as composting and recycling opportunities, and the exclusive use of biodegradable cleaning products, you can wallow in luxury with the comfort that you are making the smallest possible footprint on this treasured jungle community. Provided in each bathroom are the full line of Raw Botanicals products including Ylang Ylang Shampoo, Banana Hair Conditioner, Papaya Tangerine Body Wash, Citrus Face & Hand Soap, Mango Dream Cream and Lemongrass Insect Deterrent.

Since the house is so high, you can observe the wildlife closer to the treetops as you ride to the top in a glass elevator. Villa Enlightened is a luxurious oasis above the canopy that has been thoughtfully planned to host big groups, multiple families or those who just want privacy while still being close to everything in Playa Guiones.
Nestled in Nosara, in Costa Rica’s Blue Zone on the Guanacaste Peninsula, this charming community where the jungle meets the sea is known for it’s sunsets, it’s surf, it’s restaurants from gourmet to grass roots, it’s world class yoga opportunities, and it’s passion for sustainable and healthy lifestyle choices. It is a place where you instantly feel at home, and at peace.
Villa Enlightened is located just across the main road from Bodhi Tree Yoga Resort and up the private drive. You can easily walk to Bodhi Tree gym and property for yoga, pilates, breathwork and other classes. We are also just a short walk to Organico Market that has everything you need and Café de Paris that has a delightful bakery.
