What a perfect home away from home for my family! My husband, mother in law, 3 year old, and 8 month old stayed 5 nights at Casa Chile. We all enjoyed the pool and watching the howler monkeys pass through. The location was great. We were a short drive from both Playa Carrillo and Playa Samara. There were great restuarants near our home as well. We felt completely safe the entire time. Jamie, Colleen, and Lisa were more than helpful! This is perfect spot for a small family or couples. FYI, the upstairs bedroom has a separate, outdoor entrance that is not open to the rest of the house. This was not a problem for us, but something to note. We loved this house!!,

Owner response: Thank you so much Whitney, what a great review! Yes the upstairs separate entrance is mentioned on our site. Its great for 2 couples as there's so much privacy, so glad it worked for your family. Also thanks for mentioning how safe you felt there, we always feel that way. Well we sure hope in the future you will consider Casa Chile as your home away from home. We offer a small discount for repeat renters... Thank again. Jamie
A Great House in a great part of Costa Rica!

I have been to Puerto Carrillo a number of times before... I keep going back because it is a wonderful place. Excellent restaurants and a spectacular beach and because it is a little removed from the "tourist bustle". This visit was the best so far because of our accommodations at Casa Chile. It is a beautiful home a few minutes out of town but in a serene lovely location amongst old growth trees with birds and of course, monkeys! The two master suites worked out very well for us. The swimming pool was perfect for quick rejuvenation after an outing, a wake-up dip first thing in the morning or just to hang for a drink with a good book and catch a few rays. I found Jamie, the owner, very friendly, good to deal with and very responsive; she handled all my questions promptly. The local support staff were friendly and looked after check in and out details efficiently. While in Puerto Carrillo be sure to visit Él Colibrí, a wonderful restaurant run by Fernando & Roxy. It is traditional Argentine Parrilla (grill), like in their home country. It is worth the trip to Carrillo. We also enjoyed the El Lagarto Restaurant in Sámara (about 8 km from the house). The Carrillo Club is a great place to go for a drink and watch a spectacular sunset over Carrillo beach and perhaps stay for dinner as well. I would highly recommend Casa Chile for two couples traveling together or anyone who wants the privacy afforded by separate master suites. I hope to stay at Casa Chile again sometime in the near future.

Owner response: Dear Doug, Thank you so much! This is such a great review! We are happy you enjoyed Casa Chile , its the jungle I fell in love with, not to mention were only a short walk to the beach, and all the good resturants. We look forward to your next stay with us,by then our outdoor barbacue grill will be built and a privacy fence. Best Jamie
My wife and I stayed in this home with our toddler for 4 nights. This home couldn't have been more perfect. Fully equipped with everything we needed for our stay. Everything from the private plunge pool to the hammock on the veranda to the visiting toucan made our stay comfortable and very relaxing. I would recommend this place to anybody looking to get away from the touristy areas but still have them within close reach. A vehicle is recommended but not necessary. We found a taxi driver and used him for all our dinners out and trips to the beach. The Leyenda, within walking distance, has a delicious restaurant if you want to eat out but don't feel the need to because the house has everything you need to make your own meals. Oh and if you've travelled before, you'll appreciate that there are no barking dogs and crowing roosters to wake you in the morning! Book it and enjoy!

Owner response: Dear Jeremy, Gosh what can I say..How wonderfull a reveiw ,it made us so happy to hear that you were so pleased with our Casa. Thank you thank you !! As we have only had a few renters so far.We will build a fence around our property next time we go and also put up a gate and small drive to park,also more plants for privacy also a home made grill and patio furniture off the master bedroom. We are so very excited. We want to invite you for your next stay at Casa Chile at a 20% discount. Best Jamie Padilla And thank so much for your reveiw!!
This charming getaway but close enough in location was ideal for the 4 of us. Our friends had their own separate suite and could come and go as they pleased. There wasn't a day that went by where we didn't amble down to the gorgeous clean and not overpopulated beaches. We also spent a day shopping and playing with tourists and locals in Samara but was so glad that we chose Carrillo to spend our vacation at. Casa Chile was so well kept; we could tell the owners took great pride in their creation. It was clean, peaceful and very functional. I am now going to tell my friends about this perfect secret stay that is sure to not be a secret for long.

About the owner: We currently live in the Southwestern part of the United States and have travelled frequently. Jamie is a massage therapist and a visual creative. We both love creating with our hands in our off work time. This home has captured our artistic flair in conjunction with that of the local community. We are now ready to relax from time to time and enjoy this pristine environment loaded with water, green, wildlife and tranquility.
Why the Owner Chose Playa Carrillo:
We looked for property in Costa Rica repeatedly and our realtor at last showed us Playa Carrillo and the new development happening here. We instantly fell in love with this location and purchased the lot that very moment. We proceeded to plan and have built for us the perfect size of home with the amenities that we knew would make us happy; without lots of maintenance; so that we could relax and enjoy our time when here. We love swimming everyday in the crystal clear ocean waters or in our private pool. We crave the fresh seafood and fruit instantly when we return to the states. We feel safe here in this home which is equipped with security bars and a safe. We love coming to our second home and think you will too.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
One of our favorite pastimes is watching the wildlife from our outdoor terrace complete with bar. Also top of our list is relaxing and exercising in the pool when we don't go to the stunning beach. The pristine quality of the beach and ocean waters in Carrillo are hard to compete with. The sport fishing is at its best. The tap water is fully drinkable. The friendliness of the local people and the freshness of its food keeps us going back. This beautiful getaway is, what we feel, an ideal vacation
