New, luxurious villa just 2 minutes by foot from Playa Guiones -- renowned for its consistent surf break. Jade is a luxury retreat with five master suites, each with a queen-sized bed and private, en suite bathroom. Each of these suites is a free-standing pavilion; the pavilions are arranged around the covered, elevated Yoga platform (which would be ideal for a wedding ceremony, dinner party, reception, stage for live music performance, or other event) and the large swimming pool which also serves as a soothing and beautiful water feature.
In addition to the five suites, two bunk houses each contain two sets of bunk beds (each of the two bunk houses has 4 beds); each bunk house has one en suite bathroom. The villa compound sleeps a total of 18 people! It's ideal for an extended family, small group, Yoga retreat, surfing retreat, destination wedding, or for any group of people who want to be together in a very comfortable, secure, private environment -- and have the ability to spend time away from the group as well.
A NOTE REGARDING PHOTOS: Construction of the Jade Retreat on Guiones was recently completed. These are early photos. The villa is being furnished and outfitted now (May 2014). Once all furniture, accessories, and amenities have been installed, the villa will be professionally photographed. It is anticipated that everything will be completed by 1 June 2014.
The maximum occupancy is strictly enforced. If you anticipate the possibility of having a group that exceeds the occupancy stated for this accommodation, then you should either book different accommodations that allow for a higher occupancy, or book additional accommodations (such as a second condo or villa). Guests who exceed the stated occupancy will be evicted with no refund for the unused portion of their stay.
Unlike most coastal tourist towns, nearby Nosara lacks nearly any development directly on the beach as much of it consists of the Ostional Wildlife Refuge (necessitated by the presence of breeding Olive Ridley and Leatherback sea turtle populations). Nosara is also a surfing destination and the location of a world-renowned Yoga school.
The official town center of Nosara is located 6 km inland from the beach. Within "Nosara town" is the market, pharmacy, post office, churches, school, police station, public library and Red Cross clinic (Nosara lacks a hospital facility). There is a Banco Popular branch located in the small commercial area near Playa Guiones.
There are four main oceanfront communities each named after their respective beaches: Playa Nosara, Playa Guiones, Playa Pelada, and Playa Ostional. These comprise the largest areas of foreign-owned residences, hotels and restaurants, centered around Guiones and Pelada. The "suburb" Esparanza de Nosara borders the Playa Guiones area, sitting between its first two beach entrances to the south. Esparanza hosts the Guiones area's largest market, a school and soccer (football) field, and a few new housing developments, hotels, and restaurants.
