The Space

Accommodations: House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft, 5 Baths (Sleeps Up To 22)

Located at the south end of Playa Guiones in Nosara in a new gated community/development called the Guiones Beach Club, the Rancho Paloma Azul home is perched on top of a small knoll that is 1110 square meters (approximately 1/3 acre) in size. It has views of the Pacific Ocean, surrounding hills and rain forest and is approximately 300 yards from the beach (about a four minute walk at most).

This home can accommodate as few as four guests or as many as 22 and includes all of the following:

A 18' x 24' indigenous open-air "palapa" style wood patio structure that is the social hub of the home. It includes an open kitchen, bar counter top & stools and large communal dining area along with open-air hammocks and lounge day beds and views to the beach. This building is immediately adjacent to the private swimming pool.


Located on the 1st floor level are four (4) attached Cabana Suites, all of similar construction, each with its own 4-post queen size bed, private bathroom and porches with rocking chairs. Great for couples or for individual usage.

The building is a partial two-story structure with an upstairs master suite, called The Bunk House, equipped with a large bathroom. With three (3) full beds and two (2) twin beds, The Bunk House can sleep up to a total eight people. Great for kids, teens and/or couple and individual usage.

Two surfboard racks for storage of your surf gear. Three outdoor showers, one by the pool for rinsing sandy feet and two others by the Cabana suites and surfboard rack, respectively. All rooms are equipped with locked mini-bodegas and digital safes to safeguard your personal belongings.

The pool is approximately 12’ x 22’ and fully tiled with shallow and deep areas.

There are additional outdoor, covered sleeping areas in the loft of the Rancho equipped with two (2) full beds and two (2) twin beds with mosquito netting and ceiling fans.

A friendly, full time on-site property maintenance manager lives on the property and is available to assist guests during their stay. He handles all pool and gardening duties as well.

Daily maid and cleaning service is included in the rental of this property.

Daily assistance with cooking and/or child-care is available upon request.

Our caretaker also moonlights as a trained masseuse! Great hourly rates too.

ABOUT GUIONES BEACH CLUB: We have yet to locate the GBC clubhouse or any dues-paying members for that matter, but it is a private gated community with 24/7 guard house and security patrol, all underground utilities (unique in Nosara) and unbeatable proximity to Playa Guiones beach.

  • Known Craig for a while now and he's just a fun, down to earth guy. Super friendly, attentive, hospitable and everything else you'd want in a host!

  • Craig is one of the most impeccably organized males that I've ever met. He's got a keen intellect, a steel trap of a mind, command of the most arcane facts you can imagine, and enjoys a sincere appreciation for the finer things in life. As I've had the chance to travel, dine, and otherwise spend plenty of time with Craig, I can honestly say I've never met a more gracious, inviting or generous character in my life. He's a joy to be around and brings joy to all around him.

  • I have know Craig for 10+ years, an amazing person. Enthusiastic, great friend, yet successful entrepreneur, I would trust him for many things.

  • I've known Craig for several years, and the more I get to know him, the more I like him. He is a genuine and gracious friend, and a lot of fun to be around. I also have immense respect for Craig's business acumen, which he generously shares when I need it from time to time. My wife and I are planning a trip to Costa Rica and there is no question about which property we are renting. I am sure any of Craig's guests will have a fantastic experience with the property and dealing with Craig.

    February 2012
  • I have known Craig for over 10 years and consider him to be one of the most stand-up, genuine, and friendly people I know. Anyone entering into an agreement with him via Airbnb or elsewhere should feel assured that he/she would be treated respectfully & honestly. Much of his business success has come from relationship building so that is an inherent part of who he is.

    February 2012
  • Craig is a gracious host, has an excellent sense of humour, and is generally profoundly entertaing company.
