                          Location

                          Car: Not Necessary

                          Carrillo is Costa Rica for Real -- a Friendly & low-keyed little town, with a mixed population of locals and expatriates. The palm lined Beach is a piece of Paradise with white sand, clear and calm water – perfect for kids – and no buildings in sight. It is never crowded and there is good snorkeling at its reefs.

                          Apart from the beach, food shopping and restaurants, Carrillo offers a tour operator, a small zoo, sportfishing, hiking and horseback riding. Most services are on the main street, a 2-3 minute walk from our home. There are close to 10 restaurants within a 5 minute walk. The beach is less than 0.5 miles (750 meters) away.

                          Nearby Sámara (4 miles away) has many more shops and restaurants, some nightlife, banks and ATMs, surfing (ideal for beginners), canopy tours and massage.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: We are a semi retired couple. Herbert, a political scientist used to teach at Brooklyn College in NYC. I, Sevana, am an architect. We live in Washington DC since 2002.

                          Why the Owner Chose Samara:
                          We went to CR on vacation for the very first time in 2004 – and fell in love with the Carrillo/Samara area. Within 2 month we had bought a piece of land and I finally had the opportunity to design my very own house; a dream as an architect! It became my baby! It was so much fun, both designing it and coming down often to follow the construction. We were also so lucky to work with the best builder in the area. We spent the first night in our new home in December 2007. We now come down for a month twice a year; to take care of and enjoy our home and to swim at the most beautiful beach along the entire coast!

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Apart from being comfortable, functional and superbly located – in terms of view, security, peacefulness and still so close to everything – our home, being an architect's dream, is a work of love. A quote from a renter: “The photos don’t begin to tell the story of the magic that your home encompasses”.
