Property description

Casa Samba is the perfect tropical escape villa. This 4-bedrooms, 5-bathrooms villa was built into a bluff, overlooking the rainforest with vast Pacific Ocean views near Playa Espadilla white sand beach. It is in the exclusive cobble stoned neighborhood on Pacific Canyon Drive, private, but easily accessible to the local markets, restaurants, spas and the Manual Antonio National Park.

The villa’s multi-level living spaces all open to ocean breezes and tropical gardens with exotic sounds and scents from the local flora and fauna. This is not the typical vacation villa that was hastily built to get a quick flip. The owner actually lived in Casa Samba with his family, sparing no details to make this an original and exquisitely designed Balinese style home. Includes cathedral bamboo open beam ceilings, hand carved stone and glazed earthenware custom sinks, custom stonework and tile, exotic hardwoods and original art from around the world.

Pacific Canyon Drive is a private gated neighborhood set-off the main Manuel Antonio road. It is a community built by expats that wanted the comforts of modern luxury living within a tropical beach town. All conveniences and necessities are available by bus, taxi or walking distance.

- All bedrooms are air-conditioned and have full bathrooms ensuite
- 270-degree view of the Pacific Ocean and Manuel Antonio National Park.
- Ceiling fans throughout the villa
- 2 Private Pools: large outdoor plunge pool & indoor soak pool
- Guest Cottage
- Game room with wet bar, pool table, TV w/ DVD player and whirlpool
- Wifi throughout villa
- Kitchen equipped with all modern appliances
- Daily housekeeping & Private Chef

PLEASE NOTE: This villa is available to be rented as a 4-5 bedrooms with varying rates respectively. You may find other ads for this home with different rates for different bedroom counts but it is always private to just your group. Please inquire about specific rates for smaller or larger groups.
