Casa Colina is a Balinese/Tropical inspired two story home located in the desired K section of Playa Guiones, Nosara. It sits atop of one of the few hills located near the beach and provides that RARE combination of spectacular views (over the Infinity pool and jungle), AND an easy five minute walk to the beach. With 2 bedrooms/2 baths downstairs and and 2 bedrooms/2 baths upstairs, hosting family and friends is easy! With a warm and inviting feeling, this home is truly at home in the tropics. Designed to take advantage of the tropical breezes from every direction, it is relaxed and open.
When entering Casa Loma you are drawn from the entry into a welcoming open & spacious two story living room and kitchen. The kitchen contains Viking appliances, is surrounded with granite counter tops and has easy access to the outdoor dining area. You cannot help but to notice the attention to detail in this home. The entire second floor is constructed exclusively of plantation harvested teak – from the floors to the soaring 35 foot high ceiling. All sconces, chandeliers and hardware were created by artisans out of San Jose. Even the joints of the railings surrounding the second floor and those of the natural columns on the terrace are wrapped in Bejucoó vines. The landscaped grounds are up lit to provide a nighttime dramatic backdrop as well as a welcoming entrance. There is even a large backup water system that ensures that water will always be available and filtered before it is needed in the house. (The grounds are watered from a separate source – an on-property well and irrigation system).
Afternoon Barbecues or evening dinner parties are a breeze on the open terrace. From the cocktail areas and the outdoor Viking “kitchen”, to the large 12 person handcrafted table, this sort of entertaining could not be easier. The built-in 4 case wine cooler and separate ice maker only enhance the ease and convenience. You can always just relax and enjoy your company while lounging in the hammock and watching the surf! If you are up for some yoga, a new hand crafted wood pavilion was recently built just off the pool. This private luxury estate also includes a separate building that houses a garage, an apartment & a large bodega. It is separate from the main house and works perfectly for the privacy of extra guests or a care taker.
