Samara villa description

This gorgeous 3-bedroom beach house is the perfect solution for those looking for spectacular ocean views and easy walking distance (300 meters) to the beach. And once on the beach, you are only a 10 minute walk to the village of Samara.

Estiyul was built in 2007 and designed by one of Costa Rica’s best known architects, Karin Nagel who also designed most of the homes in the Samara Reefs development immediately up-hill and adjacent to Estiyul.

The house has three living levels which separate the main living from the sleeping areas. The lower entrance level hosts a natural lit foyer (look up, way up for the skylight!) and two well-appointed guest bedrooms with a large shared bathroom. Both bedrooms have access to outside decks and peek-a-boo views of the ocean through the jungle canopy. Go up one more level and you enter the open concept living floor. Here you find a very spacious, fully stocked kitchen with top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, a large dining area and a living/entertainment area. Immediately adjacent, folding patio doors lead to spacious outdoor decks, both covered and uncovered, and a saltwater infinity edge pool. The pool has a step entry suitable for children or non-swimmers. A barbecue area is located on one corner of the deck. A second bathroom, an air-conditioned pantry, and a laundry room take up the remainder of this floor.

The large master bedroom is located on the upper level of the house and as all other rooms of this home, has its own south facing deck looking out over the ocean. A separate office area with its own magnificent views plus a very large bathroom and walk-in closet make up the remainder of this level.

All bedrooms of Estiyul are air-conditioned. In addition, ceiling fans are strategically located in all rooms as well as in the covered areas of the outside decks. Whenever the ocean breezes stop, you have the option of cooling down by the pool or under a ceiling fan. The home is close enough to the ocean that the sound of surf will either lull you to sleep or brighten your day at sunrise.

The kitchen of this home is fully stocked with all pots, pans, dishes and utensils to make eating at home both convenient and relaxing. Barbecue on the deck, eat in the open or under cover - or move inside if the sun is getting to you. In addition there is an elevator from the car park area to all levels to assist with luggage and those with mobility issues.

Please note: this house is not appropriate for children under the age of 8. The railings around the deck are fine for adults but, for children, pose too many dangers.

              Casa Estiyul is located only a 4 or 5 minute drive from the village of Samara. From the house, it is a 3-minute walk to the beach (300 metres). Continue walking westerly for another 8-10 minutes and you are at the centre of Samara Village. The house is situated on the main road that also leads to one of Costa Rica’s other gems, Playa Carrillo, a fantastic undeveloped beach only a few kilometers down the road. The house sits at the end of a long driveway behind a distinctive, electronic gate. Parking is both covered and uncovered. The grounds are fully landscaped and blend into the lush green jungle in which it is situated. A wonderful variety of song birds, howler monkeys, lizards and iguanas are all part of what make up the ambiance of this location. Yet the minute you enter this home, you enter a world of luxury living. The home comes equipped with all stainless steel kitchen appliances, a fully stocked laundry room, cable television (with English channels), an iPod charger, wireless internet, and a security system. Maintenance and care of this home (interior and exterior) is provided through caretaker personnel from Samara Reefs.

              Don’t feel like cooking? Samara has a great selection of very good restaurants or we can provide a chef to make your stay more pleasant.

              The outdoor decks of Estiyul make it very easy to spend most of your days outside of your home. The pool, while not large, is more than enough for a quick cool-down and very safe for children and non-swimmers. Want some immediate adventure?? We are just down the hill from WingNuts Canopy Zipline Tours. Want more information on the home and area, just contact us! We are happy to assist you in your travels to Costa Rica!

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About: Casa Estiyul was recently completed as part of the Samara Reefs development, one of the finer residential developments in Costa Rica. My husband and I,Shane and Mary-Ellen Meyers, live full-time in Vancouver, Canada. We own Casa Colibri, one of the 7 houses in Samara Reefs just up the hill from Estiyul. Casa Estiyul is owned and maintained by the main Samara Reefs partners; the house is looked after on a daily basis by our partnerships' full-time Administrator and full-time Housekeeper, who have been valued employees of ours for over 15 years. I look after the VRBO rental management of Casa Estiyul along with 4 of the other houses in Samara Reefs: Villa Mirador, Casa Colibri, Villa de Las Brisas, and Casa Centenario. If Casa Estiyul is booked for your dates, it is worthwhile checking with me because one of our other houses may be available. Our family visits Samara as often as we are able to, but while we are not there we are happy to rent these wonderful houses to responsible and 'gentle users'.

              Why Samara:
              Estiyul truly has a one-of-a-kind location. The home was built on the side of a steep hill in order to provide an ocean view. Walk out of the main gate and it is a 3-minute walk to the beach and from there, a short 10 minute stroll past small hotels, bars and galleries before you enter the village of Samara. Or if you wish, when you leave the gate, go the opposite direction. The paved road on which Estiyul is located continues westerly to one of Costa Rica’s other gems, Playa Carrillo, a fantastic undeveloped beach only a few kilometers down this road.

              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
              Estiyul is only a 4 or 5 minute drive to the center of Samara. Or, alternatively, take a 3 minute stroll to the beach (300 metres). Continue westerly for another 10 minutes and you are at the centre of Samara Village. The house is situated on the main road that also leads to one of Costa Rica’s other gems, Playa Carrillo, a fantastic undeveloped beach only a few kilometers down the road. The house sits at the end of a long driveway behind a distinctive wood (electronic) gate. There is plenty of parking, both covered and uncovered. The grounds are fully landscaped and blend into the lush green jungle in which it is situated. A wonderful variety of song birds, howler monkeys, and a variety of lizards and iguanas are all part of what make up the ambiance of this location. Yet the minute you enter this home, you enter a world of luxury living. The home comes equipped with all stainless steel kitchen appliances, a fully stocked laundry room, cable television (with English channels), an iPod charger, wireless internet, and a security system. Maintenance of this home (interior and exterior) is provided through personnel from Samara Reefs. Don’t feel like cooking? We can offer restaurant suggestions, provide assistance in finding a personal chef (including our own Anna) to make your stay more pleasant. The outdoor decks of Estiyul make it very easy to spend most of your days outside of your home. The pool, while not large, is more than enough for a quick cool-down and very safe for children and non-swimmers. Want some immediate adventure??
