Reserved for the discriminating traveler, there is nothing VILLA VISTA does not have! From the mammoth Living/Dining area with 22-foot vaulted ceiling, to the fully-equipped gourmet Kitchen, to the air-conditioned Library/Media room with large flat-screen TV, to the grand king Master Suite and 2 air-conditioned Guest Suites (queen and 2 singles/king), the open floor plan gives you breathtaking views overlooking the large infinity pool to some of the most spectacular vistas in all of Costa Rica. Even the outdoor Bar/Kitchen --- complete with DCS gas grill and side burner, clear ice maker, beer/wine cooler and more --- enjoys these breathtaking sights as well as the constant ocean breeze and subtle sounds of the breaking surf. You will look forward to daily visits from red winged parrots, hummingbirds, roseate spoonbills, wood storks and howler monkeys as well as the ever-present fragrance of the ylang ylang tree (the essence of Chanel #5) that welcomes you at the front entrance and is only one of many tropical beauties in the private gardens. The entire home opens directly onto the full width Terrace and infinity pool --- focal point of Costa Rican living --- and the perfect place to watch the world awaken, relax and lose yourself in a selection from the large library, sip a cocktail or two or enjoy a romatic dinner (private gourmet chef available). The many amenities of VILLA VISTA include full stainless Bar and Kitchen with granite counter tops, European travertine and stone floors throughout, imported marble walls and vanities in all 3 baths, exotic outdoor jungle shower, indoor/outdoor high fidelity stereo system, 2 large flat screen TVs with cable, VCR and DVD player, telephones, security alarm system, safe, extensive video library and Wi-Fi help make your stay in paradise perfect. An added, and invaluable bonus, is our onsite ENGLISH SPEAKING Property Manager who will welcome you to the Villa, show you the area and is always available to ensure your stay in paradise is unforgettable.
VILLA VISTA is one of only seven homes located in the exclusive gated community of Samara Reefs and is just 5 minutes (all on paved roads) from the funky surfing town of Samara and the world famous Carrillo Beach, rated by Lonely Planet as 2 of the most beautiful beaches in all of Central America. Samara's many beach bars and restaurants will satisfy any taste - Italian, Mexican, French, Argentinean, vegetarian, pizza, seafood, sushi, steak and more. Rather cook in? No problem in our spacious gourmet Kitchen as there are several grocery stores and bakeries, a butcher shop, produce markets, organic market and farmer's market located in Samara. For necessities we have 2 banks, ATMs, English speaking medical and dental centers, a pharmacy, spa, fitness and yoga centers in town. For adventure check with one of our tourist information centers to book surf lessions, scuba diving, horseback riding or white water rafting tours or rent kayaks, paddleboards, bicycles or ATVs. Up for some high-flying thrills? Book a flight on the gyro-copter and explore the Pacific coast or zip through the jungle on a canopy tour. Need to improve your Spanish? Samara has an internationally acclaimed language school that offers weekly classes. Or.........simply relax in the pool while keeping a look out for passing whales.
VILLA VISTA was constructed, decorated and furnished as a luxurious private residence, not as a rental property. You will enjoy old world antiques imported from Europe, Egyptian linens, fine china, crystal and silverware. The photos of our home tell you the rest of the story and are truly worth a thousand words. Please contact us if you have questions or would like to book an adventure in paradise.
