Samara house description

This is a special little place. It is tucked into a small alcove about 15 minutes by foot to the city center of Samara. From the house you can walk five or so minutes to three beaches where you can surf, fish, swim, or go tide pooling. There is also a turtle refuge nearby. There are hiking trails in the hills above only minutes from your doorstep.

The home is well maintained and can accommodate up to 4 people. The master bedroom has a king sized bed and air conditioning for your comfort. The second bedroom has a double bed with a ceiling fan. There are two full bathrooms so no waiting when you are getting ready to go out to one of Samara's many fantastic restaurants.

The home has a swimming pool in a nicely landscaped backyard with mature fruit trees. There are three completely covered breezy patio areas, carport, and a storage bodega. The fully equipped kitchen offers the comforts of home. The kitchen/lounge and dining room is an open floor plan with a comfy seating area looking out into the garden through double patio doors. Enjoy using the BBQ in the privacy of the quiet, colorful, mature, landscaped garden.

The only noise that might disturb the peaceful state of Casa Ventura is the call of the Howler Monkey that can be heard during dusk and dawn. If you decide to go for a hike there is a good chance you will see one and can howl 'hello' back to them.

Casa Ventura, Samara remains a well-priced alternative for those wanting to stay near the sea and enjoy the tranquility of a blossoming town with a low-key vibe.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: We are a Canadian family who have lived in Costa Rica. During our time in living in Costa Rica we had numerous North American visitors throughout the winter months. After touring them to many different locations we found ourselves returning to, and recommending, Samara. In 2012, we had the opportunity to purchase Casa Ventura and are happy to be able to share our favorite vacation spot with the rest of the world.

                  Why the Owner Chose Samara:
                  We have stayed in several vacation home, hotels, and even campgrounds in the Samara and Carrillo area. This property is in such a great location as it is close enough to everything but removed from the hustle and activity of town.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We love the local vibe. Samara has retained the Costa Rican attitude of Pura Vida. If we want hang with the locals we can walk three minutes down the road to Pablitos for a beverage or Monkey's to pick up supplies and/or a take out pizza. When you stay at Casa Ventura you become a local by default:-)
