Property description

Very contemporary open art filled home, three bedrooms each with private indoor/outdoor bath offering beautiful views of both the ocean and mountains from high on a hill. A true experience of being in and surrounded by nature yet elegant.
The location of this property is enough out of town to offer total privacy and yet close enough to get to town and the beach quickly. The serenity is amazing, the views are magic! The infinity pool invites you to laze or swim laps while you gaze at the ocean. You can literally walk into the pool from both the living room area as well as the master suite. The gourmet kitchen, with lots of amenities, including an ice cream maker, has sliding windows that open up to the mountains so when you are preparing food, you have wonderful views. The yoga deck/art/massage studio, on top is the crowning jewel! You feel like you are on top of the world with 360 degree view of ocean and mountains and sky, nothing else besides lots of monkeys and birds! Our little family of monkeys traverse the property on a regular basis.You can spend hours watching them play. There are other decks to sun on or relax in the shade. The bedrooms all have private baths with outdoor/indoor showers. Art is integrated everywhere, including the owners light sculptures, architectural glass installations and paintings. The paintings are all for sale and the light sculptures are available for order. All of the furniture was designed by the owner and made specifically for the house.
There are most often bananas, papayas and mangoes available on the property for your enjoyment. Schedule a massage on the yoga deck with the finest massage therapist in Samara, enjoy a glass of wine while you watch the monkeys or play in the pool.
There intentionally are NO TV's, however there is internet so you can stay connected, watch movies online and listen to music. This is the place to have a REAL Costa Rica experience of being surrounded by the beauty and serenity of the natural environment while also being bathed in elegance. A place to relax, recharge your creative juices and most of all just enjoy! This is not an appropriate property for young children due to the lack of railings on top decks and the fact that the two bedrooms other than master have their own separate entrances from outside for privacy. It is ideal for up to three couples or families with older children. Due to the somewhat remote location of this property it is not possible to check in after dark (5:30) so it is advisable to plan your trip accordingly. Liberia airport is app 2 hrs away so if you are arriving there after 2:00, you should plan to check in the following day. San Jose airport is 4-5 hours away so unless you arrive before noon, you will also need to check in the following day. If your flight is late or some other problem occurs that makes you run late please advise property manager right away (506) 8383-9333.

Year Purchased: 2009

About: I am an internationally know professional glass artist and gallery owner working specifically in 'Light Sculpture' and devoted yogini

Why Sámara, Costa Rica:
As an artist and yoga practitioner/teacher, I wanted to create a space that was private, serene and beautiful to recharge my creative energies, experience nature in a profound way, and be able to offer this same benefit to others. I found this property which is just a short distance from town and yet very private with gorgeous views of the ocean on one side and the mountains on the other. There is always a nice breeze up on this hill which keeps the house fresh and cool, little need for AC although it is in all of the bedrooms. I worked with an architect to design and build this spectacular house that is modern, very zen in feel and very open. An experience of living in nature in luxury! All of the furniture was designed by me and made specifically for the house. This is the place to have a real Costa Rica experience of being in the beauty, simplicity and serenity of nature.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The serenity is amazing, the views are magic! The infinity pool invites you to laze or swim laps while you gaze at the ocean. You can literally walk into the pool from both the living room area as well as the master suite. The gourmet kitchen, with lots of amenities, including an ice cream maker, has sliding windows that open up to the mountains so when you are preparing food, you have a wonderful view. The yoga deck on top is the crowning jewel! A 360 degree view of ocean and mountains and sky, nothing else besides lots of monkeys and birds! There are other decks to sun on or relax in the shade. The bedrooms all have private baths with outdoor/indoor showers. Art is everywhere, including the owners light sculptures, architectural glass installations and paintings. The paintings are all for sale and the light sculptures are available for order. There are most often bananas, papayas and mangoes available on the property for your enjoyment.
