Located in one of the few Pacific beach areas with many rivers and unpaved roads. 14 km to the south (25 minute drive) is Nosara, Playa Guiones, and Playa Pelada. There are many activities and amenities there to choose from, like world class surfing at Guiones, canopy tours, river and sea kayaking, or even a class at the well known Yoga Institute of Nosara. Just to the south, between us and Nosara is the 2nd largest turtle preserve in Latin America called Ostional. Over 500,000 Olive Ridley turtles come to spawn there between the months of August and March with the major migration happening in the rainy season months between October and January. The area around San Juanillo itself has many beautiful beaches surrounding it, and is home to a local population of around 300 people. A small fishing village, it has a local grocery, a couple of small bars and restaurants, but also has a very laid back feel to it unlike the surf town of Nosara. Many of the locals in Nosara actually like to come up to San Juanillo for the day to enjoy its secluded beaches. Still, there are several incredible places to eat, with access to activities like yoga, fishing, diving, sea kayaking, and horseback riding to name just a few. To the north, there is another town called Marbella that has an incredible beach with hardly any visitors as well as a surf break in front of the Tiki bar that not many even know about! It makes for a great day for sure.

Absolutely Fabulous! The pictures simply do not articulate how peaceful and serene this beautiful oasis actually is. It is tucked away on the top of the hill providing complete privacy and overlooks the pool, trees and ocean. We would spend our mornings on the veranda listening to the birds and enjoying the wonderful taste of Costa Rican coffee and our evenings were filled soaking up the breathtaking sunsets. The home is very spacious and the kitchen is equipped with everything a chef may need to prepard a gourmet meal. The master bedroom is very large with a walk-in closet and patio door to the pool. The master bathroom overlooks the ocean and provides a large shower as if you were at a luxury spa. It is located just 10 minutes away from one of the most tranquil beaches I have enjoyed, San Juanillo beach. Steven is a great guy, highly responsive and a provided lots of good travel tips. We had the pleasure of meeting the owner Vinod, who is a very kind soul and loved by those in the community. I have been very fortunate and have traveled all over the world and I can truly say this is an experience I will always treasure. Thanks Steven & Vinod for being a part that treasure.
