Heaven on Earth!
Heaven on Earth!
My family of four (2 teen daughters) stayed at this glorious house this past August, 2013. My husband told us nothing, it was a "surprise!" After a VERY long day of travel from Texas, we were SO elated when we drove up the private driveway with the property manager. It was WAY beyond what we imagined, what a SPECTACULAR VIEW! It was bigger than what we needed, but we enjoyed being spread out in the beautiful decor inside and outside by the pool. Everyone was so nice, housekeeper, groundskeeper, locals, etc... Costa Rica was nothing like I had heard of, but I think the secret is Samara Beach is the true treasure of C.R. It is a small, but fantastic community with everything you need and not the hustle and bustle of tourists, traffic, lines, etc... All the restaurants were amazing, the shopping was reasonable and unique, and the beach was the most beautiful beach I've ever been to, and I'm from Florida! No need to worry about sharks here, the water was crystal green, perfect waves, palm trees, horses and dogs running around, it was such a "natural" beach. Anyway, back to the incredible casa, I would HIGHLY recommend staying there. Everything is modern, in new condition, and honestly the best thing was opening the massive glass sliding doors and seeing the most gorgeous view of the beach down below, trees, foliage, flowers, etc... Beware the Howler monkeys though, they do not know what sleeping in means. :) We enjoyed the Canopy excursion and horseback trail ride so much too! Highly recommend this beautiful paradise!

Owner response: Dear Jackie & Russell, Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. It was such a pleasure to meet your lovely family. I was truly elated when you told me it had been the best vacation you've ever had! Being one of our first guests this year your kind words and feedback helped us feel that we've accomplished our goal of making you feel comfortable, at home and make your Costa Rica vacation a one in a lifetime experience. Hope to see you all again very soon... Warmest Regards, Evelyn
This was our first time out of the USA, first vacation with our grown up daughters. And we could not have been more thrilled with this Villa. It was the most glorious home and views. Every morning having coffee on the patio and listening and watching the ocean was amazing. Jumping in the private pool, especially in the afternoon to cool off was wonderful. Our hosts were terrific, great info on the area, etc. Plenty of restaurants and every one we went to we had a great meal and nice variety. It could not have been more perfect and we all hope to be able to return.

What a great vacation my family and I just had at Samara in Costa Rica. The house is even more beautiful than the pictures and the sunsets are spectacular! There were plenty of great restaurants to choose from when we didn't want to eat at home. Between the pool and the local beach we had just the vacation we were looking for.

We found paradise on our recent stay on this beautiful house. It has everything, the comfort, the view and the spectaculars sunsets. The owners will make sure you feel at home. The kitchen is amazing if you want to cook your own meals, and also there are wonderful restaurants around if you prefer to eat out. The rooms are breathtaking and from every window you can appreciate the ocean. It's situated on the hills of one of the most beautiful beach in Costa Rica. Definitely will be back. Highly recommend it for your next getaway.

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: We are a Costa Rican-American family based in San José, Costa Rica. My father now partly retired started exploring and investing in property in the region nearly 30 years ago and fell in love with this place for its pristine beaches, exuberant vegetation, friendly people and laid back atmosphere. We started building our dream home in Samara Reefs in 2006. As an interior designer this was a project close to my heart and enjoyed working closely with our wonderful friend and Architect Karin Naguel as we shared the same vision of integrating the beauty of the magnificent surroundings into every corner of the house, with free flowing indoor/outdoor spaces that take in the stunning ocean and mountain views, cool breezes and soothing sounds of the waves breaking on the shore. We hope to be able to share our dream of paradise with you in the near future.
Why the Owner Chose Samara:
Samara is simply one of the safest and prettiest beaches in the country, with its long stretch of of sandy beach, shallow, gentle waters, coral reefs and its very own island in the bay, Isla Chora. The town of Samara is charming, unique and picturesque with a wide variety of restaurants and beach side bars and it is also a thriving fishing and farming community. There are cowboys and cattle drives, fishing boats returning at sunset, exotic fruit harvests, specialty and organic farming, tree nurseries and reforestation projects. There are unusual plant and animal species, ancient Indian sites, underwater caves and coastal and mountain nature trails. Guitar, Spanish, yoga, aerobic and dancing lessons and massages are available. Just south of the popular surfer’s paradise of Samara Beach, Playa Carrillo is one of our favorite spots as one of the least developed most beautiful natural beaches on the Nicoya Peninsula. Framed by mountains, the laid-back fishing village has a white-sand beach just off a palm-lined boulevard with no unsightly beachfront buildings. Known among divers for its excellent coral reef teeming with marine life, the beach is protected by rocky headlands, providing calm, warm water for swimmers.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
This gorgeous Villa with its clean lines, contemporary design and wide open spaces takes full advantage of its remarkable setting as every room is immersed in the breathtaking beauty of the surroundings with scenery pouring in from every angle. The large infinity pool and Jacuzzi Spa invite you in for a swim while soaking in the view of the ocean and the sound of the waves in your very own step up Spa with ergonomic built in seating. A well equipped kitchen offers the discerning chef all that is needed to prepare a romantic evening for two or an exquisite experience for a larger dinner party. Located in an exclusive gated community, available services include security, twice weekly housekeeping service, ground and pool maintenance by our wonderful staff of long-time, trusted employees. The trip from either San Jose or Liberia airport to our front door is via 100% paved roads.
