About Laura Stiles

The private owners are international travelers, who have enjoyed Costa Rica for the last decade. The Guanacaste area is special due to its blue zone status, dramatic coastline and diverse nature, both marine and land.

Why Laura Stiles chose Costa Rica

The family developed Casa Zar and Casa Zarina for its sweeping views of the Bay of Papagayo, world class fishing and motor yachting. They enjoy the location at the Marina Papagayo and at the Peninsula Papagayo which provide an exclusive master plan development and security. They also enjoy the membership to the Peninsula Papagayo Club which includes the Arnold Palmer Golf Course, Playa Prieta Beach Club and incredible wildlife that abounds. Nearby, the Ellerstina Polo Club is also a wonderful place for equestrian enthusiasts.

What makes this condo unique

Casa Zarina is like no other property in Costa Rica due to its close proximity 'on the water'. The panoramic views of the Bay of Papagayo are incredible whether sitting in the living room or on the balcony. Enjoy your Costa Rican coffee while watching the morning sunrise. The evening hour with the sun coming down and the boats venturing home is truly special. It feels like an aquarium as you look over the infinity view balcony to the water with schools of fish at play. The property was developed for indoor/outdoor living and has unique sliding glass walls which allow for the open breeze or air conditioned space. The internal elevator is a great benefit for families seeking individual privacy with bedrooms split between the two floors as well as private relaxing areas.

incredible adventure!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start! This was our first trip to Costa Rica we couldn't have not chosen a more wonderful place to stay. The condominium was exquisite with every attention to detail. The views of the marina were breathtaking. after a long day of deep sea fishing we took our fresh catch to the " dive bar " on property they cooked up our fish in numerous ways and we enjoyed a fabulous meal. I cannot say how lovely the accommodations were. close by dining experiences were also beautiful. the beach club was spectacular as we were able to enjoy the beautiful beaches and Sun while our husbands got to watch soccer in the bar with the locals. what a great time!! I look forward to coming back

Fantastic--VERY highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We have visited both of the residences several times, spring break with our teenager boys, a couples get away weekend and a girls trip. We have loved it every time. The location is great, views are beautiful and the décor of the units is stunning and very comfortable. I could easily see both of these apartments featured in a décor magazine. We liked the peacefulness of the overall Marina property, and the direct elevator to each of the units. We have also chartered the owners fishing boat, Zara, and have had an excellent time. It is the nicest boat available for charter in the area and the crew is always good. The the private beach club is one of our favorite ways to spend the day. The owner is very helpful, every detail is well handled. The concierge service is great too, from stocking the fridge with groceries to planning a day trip to Nicaragua.
