Casa Libelula is one of those quintessential old-soul Nosara beach properties that oozes with beach vibes. Barely a 3-minute walk to the sands and surf of North Guiones, and one minute to favorite restaurants and the mini-Super La Delicias, this property is a premier choice as a vacation home, small B&B, or as your permanent abode. This property is in the middle of everything but with its “off in the corner” location and expansive garden around the pool and rancho, it retains its privacy and “beach hideaway” atmosphere.
The home was thoughtfully designed with a 360 wrap-around covered patio, two upper balconies, and airways to catch beach breezes. Walk through the front door from the private off-street parking area and you will be greeted by the double ceiling and open plan of the kitchen and living room that give a sense of space and light. There are two bedrooms on the main floor that each have private access to the wrap-around balcony for ultimate indoor-outdoor lifestyle.
An open-concept staircase leads up to the second floor. The Master features a large balcony, closets and a walk-in bodega. There is also an upstairs guest room. The landing is broad and can accommodate another bed, play area, or a media space. A fourth private room can serve as a bedroom, guest room, or office.
Construction is extremely solid: cinder block and concrete make up the bones- so no worries about mold or termites. The owner, an expert carpenter, has maintained the wooden teak overhangs and the kitchen island and cabinetry (all made from local laurel and cedar woods) to perfection. Windows are premium no-fuss vinyl, chosen for their durability and resistance to seasonal expansion and contraction.
The garden is one of the most interesting in Guiones, with an attractive selection of tropical flowers, an enchanting arched bougainvillea trellis, as well as mature fruit trees: papaya, mango, noni, banana, key limes, coconuts, almond, and mandarins! You can eat from your garden all year round.
The site has space to put a separate office or guest cottage without disrupting the pretty pool, garden, or parking areas. Around the exterior of the house are electric and water outlets in strategic places that would streamline any future renovations or expansions.
With it’s A+ location, air conditioning in every room of the house, comfortable furniture and all appliances included, this home is move-in ready!
