About the property

4 Br/ 4Ba luxury home nestled into the mountains. Minutes from quiet beaches.

The Sanctuary Home is the largest home on the MarAzul property. It features a rich Mediterranean architectural design with all of the modern conveniences. Guests are invited to enjoy the beauty of nature that surrounds the home. Sitting on a tranquil hill, the trees, birds, and ocean breeze surrounding the Sanctuary home make for a peaceful retreat. The home is detailed with custom-made stained glass windows at the entry, and fine natural woods and tile throughout the entire home.

The 3400 square feet of living space offers broad social areas, a fully equipped kitchen with a beautiful breakfast room, and garden view windows. There is also a top-quality bar with genuine granite counters, ceramic tile and fine wood finishes. The Sanctuary Home includes four bedrooms, each with a full private bath. The main suite has access to a 4×20 foot exclusive balcony and a large walk-in closet.

There is also a private study finished in five types of native woods, a wonderful panoramic garden view, and a wine cellar. Every room throughout the home is equipped with an independent, remote controlled air conditioner. The exterior of the home has two terraces, one with a garden (or children’s play area), and features an underground two-car garage with additional storage area to protect motorcycles, a boat and ATVs.

The Sanctuary home also provides total security. Last but not least, enjoy the outdoors on a beautiful wooden deck with a covered patio and BBQ which harmonize with the outdoor environment. If you are looking for luxury in paradise, the Sanctuary home has it!

Why Johnny chose Sámara

The owner loves Samara and the secluded nearby beaches long before paved roads reached the area. The small village of Esterones is a tight knit community that is close enough to Samara, Garza, and Nosara to take part in their nightlife and 'action' but far enough away to truly be immersed in the natural beauty of Costa Rica.

The Perfect Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in the "Sanctuary" home for our Costa Rica holiday and absolutely LOVED IT! The location is close to the beach (we walked to Playa Buena Vista) and the mountain views are gorgeous. We often saw iguanas and monkeys while we were lounging on the back deck by the pool.

I would highly recommend this home! We are looking forward to returning soon.
