          Owner info

          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.
