We have it all, Ocean and Mountain views, Green Conservation Area, Mangrove forest, and Pasture lands. Our home (formerly Casa San Rocco) is in an absolutely incredible setting in Playa Buena Vista, Esterones a short 10 minute drive to the lovely coastal town of Samara, 30 minutes to the fishing port of Carillo, and 10-30 minutes to world class surfing beaches on the road north to Nosara. The property is 800 meters from the beach, a short stroll down a peaceful country lane where you'll be entertained by exotic birds and monkeys playing overhead as you walk. One of the best parts of 'the Quinta' is the layout of the house, designed by architect Erik Reise and set-up for privacy. It's great place for couples and families. The home is situated to catch breezes while maximizing the views. It's tranquil and secluded but not at all far from 'town' nor from things to do.

This is a unique & peaceful piece of paradise. The property is located 1.5-2.0 hours from the international airport in Liberia (LIR). There is a smaller local airport 30 minutes away in Carillo beach.
Both the towns of Samara and Nosara offer a wide variety of shops and restaurants with many operated by expats from Europe and the US.
Buena Vista beach is secluded and peaceful with very few visitors and is quite safe for swimming, surfing, and fishing. The beach is a Turtle sanctuary and thus is protected from the hyper development that has plagued the northern coast of the Nicoya peninsula. There is also a bird sanctuary adjacent to beach along the estuary offering an opportunity to see very rare and colorful winged friends. There is a wide variety of local flora and fauna. The area is very green and tranquil.
There are many things to do around the area so once you have had your fill of relaxing at the pool, long leisurely strolls on Playa Buena Vista, and communing with nature by the patio get yourself up and out. Costa Rica has endless possibilities! World Class surfing, surfing lessons, kayaking tours, beachcombing, turtle tours, canopy excursions, hiking, biking, sightseeing, visiting galleries full of local art and craft, and the food…oh the food, you’ll never have fresher! Ok the coffee…world class! We would need pages to describe all of the wonderful things there are to do and explore.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: We jokingly refer to ourselves as an Art and Engineering Collective because it encompasses a vast aray of ideas and leaves us free to explore anything. We are in truth an artist and an engineer with oh so many things rolled in there...sailor, chef, software developer, restoration artist, photographer, eco designer, entrepreneur and the list goes on.
We are both passionate about travel, conservation and preservation of the natural environment, organic gardening, supporting local economies, learning, reading and travel, travel travel
Why the Owner Chose Samara: While we have had the good fortune to travel quite a bit and while many places have left us yearning to return, there is no where quite like Costa Rica and particularly this house. The first time we rented we were totally smitten with the house, the grounds, the people, the food, and the beach. We loved it so much that we returned the next season and felt like we belonged there. As fate would have it the house came up for sale and the rest is...Being written. We hope you love this house and area as much as we do.
The Unique Benefits at this House: One of the best parts of 'the Quinta' is the layout of the house, designed by architect Erik Reise and set-up for privacy. It's great place for couples and families. The home is situated to catch breezes while maximizing the views. It's tranquil and secluded but not at all far from 'town' nor from things to do.
