Property description

This ultra modern 3-bedroom beach house is the perfect solution for those looking for spectacular ocean views while being within easy walking distance to the beach. From the house it is 300 meters to the beach; once on the beach, it is only a 10 minute walk to the town-center of Samara.

Casa Estiyul was built in 2007, 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 the hill from Estiyul.

The living space is located all on the 3rd floor: a huge designer kitchen, a comfortable living room, an inviting dining room, a large sundeck, and a salt-water infinity edge pool. The master bedroom is located upstairs on the 4th floor, while the other 2 bedrooms are on the second floor. The gourmet kitchen is spacious and has top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances. Next to it is a large dining area and a living/entertainment area. Immediately adjacent are folding patio doors which lead to spacious outdoor decks - both covered and uncovered - and a saltwater infinity edge pool. The pool is salt-water with very little chlorine so it does not have a strong smell. The barbecue area is located on one corner of the deck. Next to the kitchen is an air-conditioned walk-in pantry (perfect for storing vegetables, beer and wine). Down the hallway is a second bathroom, and a handy laundry room.

The view from the 3rd floor is spectacular - with gorgeous sweeping views of Samara Beach, the off-shore island of Isla Chora, the off-shore reefs, and the whole bay of Samara. Surrounded by jungle, it is truly perfection. From your own deck watch a troop of monkeys swinging in the trees below and watch flocks of parakeets fly by.

The large master bedroom is located on the upper level (4th floor) of the house and, as all other rooms of this home, it has a private, south-facing deck looking out over the ocean. In this bedroom is a very large bathroom, a walk-in closet, and separate office area with a window looking to the west.

All of bedrooms are air-conditioned. Ceiling fans are located in all rooms as well as in the covered areas of the outside decks. 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 is fully stocked with everything you will need to eat in: pots, pans, dishes and utensils to make eating at home both convenient and relaxing. Barbecue on the deck, dine in the outside dining room, or inside at the dining room.

There is an elevator from the car park area to all levels to assist with luggage and those with mobility issues. Please note: to use the elevator you must make a special request at the time of booking.

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.

Car: Recommended

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.

Casa Estiyul is situated at the end of a long driveway behind a distinctive, electronic gate. There is plenty of parking, both covered and uncovered. The grounds are fully landscaped and blend into the lush green jungle. A wonderful variety of song birds, howler monkeys, lizards and iguanas are all part of what make up the ambiance of this location.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2008

About: Casa Estiyul was 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 seven beach 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. OCEAN VIEWS: The home was built on the side of a steep hill in order to make the most of its location and its huge ocean views. WALK TO BEACH: From the main gate, it is a 3-minute walk to the beach and from there, a 10 minute stroll to small hotels, restaurants, and the village of Samara. 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. A 45 minute walk (4 kilometers).

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Casa Estiyul is a great choice if you are considering going car-less! It is only a 3 minute stroll to the beach (300 metres) and another 10 minutes to the town-center of Samara. The house sits at the end of a long driveway behind a distinctive wood (electronic) gate, giving great security. This property also offers tremendous privacy - it is surrounded by jungle but has no immediate neighbors on either side, it is great for honeymooners as it offers almost completely privacy. The jungle setting provides 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 Casa Estiyul, you enter a world of luxury living:. Modern living inside. Yet, outside, you are surrounded by jungle, your own pool, relaxing chaise lounges on a large outdoor deck, with a backdrop of gorgeous beach and ocean views. Complete paradise!
