BR B Area: /B BR This is a beautiful, tropical area of the north coast of Costa Rica. The beach is a large semi-circle lined with coconut palms perfect for relaxing in the shade or venturing out into the sun. Waves can be very large at high tide but smaller and much gentler at low tide. There are tide pools at the west end of the beach and snorkeling is good there at low tide. The mountains make for gorgeous views and sunset can be viewed from the side of the house where the view overlooks two ocean beaches.

Playa Carrillo is located three miles south of Samara on one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. The beach is a huge horseshoe lined with coconut palms with a rocky headland on each end. There is no commercial development on the beach which adds to its natural beauty. It is in Guanacaste province on the northern Pacific coast in a area that so far is not overdeveloped and still retains the lovely natural beauty without condos and golf courses. You are sure to see parrots, howler monkeys, iguanas, frogs and many species of birds and other animals. It is the perfect place to relax, but there is plenty to do if you want to venture. There are horses, a zip line, surfing, swimming, snorkeling, fishing(some of the best sport fishing in Costa Rica) as well as short day charters that fish close to land. If you decide to rent out home, I will send you a detailed list of things to do and places to go.
Year Purchased: 1993
About the owner: We are a family from Pensacola, Florida who love our Costa Rican paradise. We have shared it with many people over the years, many of whom have come back every year or so and consider it their home as well. We are college professors, attorneys, farmers/ecologists, scientists, sailors, artists and people who love to have a good time.
Why the Owner Chose Guanacaste, Costa Rica:
Villa Mitchell and Playa Carrillo are both secluded non-touristy places which it make the home and the area a paradise away from the commercialism that has taken over much of Costa Rica. There is plenty to do there without condos and highrises! The most beautiful beaches in the world, clean water, wildlife, peace and serenity--also good places to eat, fish, swim, play.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Over the years we have improved the property, planted many trees and plants--mangoes, lemons, flowers etc--and restored the house along the way by adding new custom made Costa Rican furniture and Costa Rican artwork. We also have an excellent library from scientific books on plants and birds to the best novels as well as plenty of 'beach reads!' The view from the pool deck of the Pacific Ocean to unrivaled; sitting as the rail overlooking the ocean has become a daily and nightly place to be to relax and enjoy the view, the stars, the monkeys--you name it!
