Nestled in a garden setting, sharing the swimming pool and Rancho with Casa Papaya - also available for rental. Overlooking the Pacific, its just a 10 minute walk to one Costa Rica's best beaches.
We're close to Sámara (2 km) but not too close. That means less noise - especially in the evenings - and more privacy. Off the beach means fewer bugs and cooler temperatures. You're much closer to the nature you want to see.
Casa Mango was designed for comfort in the tropics, with a private shaded terrace and air conditioning inside. Sea breezes keep the house cool during the day. Views of the Pacific from every room. Paddle fans throughout. All windows screened. Private outdoor shower just off pool plus a full bath. Bedroom with double pillow top mattress. Living room with double sofa/futon. Save money and cook at home in the fully equipped kitchen. Owner's live in their own home on the property year around to assist in any way possible.
Sámara's reef-protected bay provides safe swimming and snorkeling. Learn to surf at ne of 4 surf schools right in the bay and world-class waves nearby. There is abundant wildlife in the trees around the house. Wake up to the roar of the Howler monkeys or the call of the green parrots as they make their twice daily pass to nesting sites up the hill. There is a zipline canopy tour nearby. Best birding in the area is from the terrace at dawn
Samara has shops, post office, police station, groceries, internet cafes, doctor, pharmacy, many good restaurants, and 'sodas' (Tico for cafe). The beach is quiet and gorgeous. It is nearly empty most of the week, except in the mornings when the children walk to school.
Casa Mango shares a 'get cool' pool and a spacious covered rancho with Casa Papaya, also available for vacation rental. Up the hill is Casa Gecko the owners home. Reserve one or two houses for an unforgettable tropical gathering.
Sámara is a tropical jewel. Casa Mango is well located away from the downtown noise in a mixed international/Tico neighborhood along a paved road. The evenings are quiet and serene, with amazing star shows and the sounds of night animals. Dawn approaches with visits from monkeys, parrots, other wildlife and maybe a neighborhood rooster. Daytime includes the occasional motorbike or truck.

Just above one of the prettiest white sand beaches in Costa Rica, Casa Mango enjoys air conditioning as well as cooling ocean breezes and terrific Pacific ocean views. Pristine, and less developed than many northern Guanacaste resort towns, Sámara provides a more laid back and romantic atmosphere. It is not only a charming beach village, with a wide choice of restaurants and activities, but it is also a thriving fishing and farming community. Fishing boats return to the harbor at sunset. Cattle and horses wander the wooded trails. Children walk to school along the beach in their crisp uniforms. Sámara is surrounded by world-class surfing beaches, many almost deserted. Sámara Bay is protected by a reef and island and so provides safe swimming and beginning surfing with 4 surf schools. Local guides offer tours for dolphin & whale watching, active volcanoes, sailing, fishing, snorkeling, rafting and kayaking, zip-line canopy tour. Get involved with turtle nesting at Playa Buena Vista and Playa Camoronal
Golf: 9 hole golf course at Punta Islita 45 minutes south. Several 18 hole courses 2 hours to the north.
Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: When we'd had enough of grey Seattle, we quit our day jobs (architect and graphic designer) and moved to Costa Rica, where we've been happily living the Pura Vida since 2006. We love the climate and beauty of this tropical environment. We love the culture and the people here. We love the rhythm of life. And we love to share it.
Why the Owner Chose Samara: We fell in love with Costa Rica the first time we vacationed here - the climate, the environment, the people. After touring much of the country, we settled on a gem of a lot with expansive ocean views. We liked being near the town of Sámara, where there are more services available each year. But we like being away from the noise and late night activity. We love the Howler monkeys that visit frequently to feast on the mango trees next door.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Within walking distance to the beach - we do it every morning with our rescued dog - our houses sit on the hillside overlooking Sámara Bay. There aren't too many houses around where you can have both proximity and privacy. Close enough to head in for a night of reggae or cocktails on the beach. But on quiet mornings, the best bird-watching happens from your terrace. Fresh ocean breezes keep the houses bug-free and cool although we've recently added AC.
