Property description

This ultra modern 3-bedroom beach house has the perfect location - 5 minutes walk to the beach and spectacular ocean views from the pool and bedrooms. Owned by the homeowners who manage the Samara Reefs gated community, this Lower Samara Reefs house is 330 yards directly in front of Samara beach and a easy 10 minute walk to the town-center of Samara.

This house is built TALL, to make the most of the stunning ocean views. In fact, all the main living space is located on the 3rd floor, a huge sundeck, and the swimming pool!. There is an ultra-modern, large, designer kitchen, a living room, dining room, a very large sundeck, a covered dining room table, and an fantastic saltwater infinity-edge swimming pool. The master bedroom is located upstairs on the 4th floor and gets a fantastic view out all 4 sides. Two additional bedrooms, on the second floor, have large wraparound decks that look out into the natural jungle. From there you can enjoy watching troops of howler monkeys, birds, iguanas, and a huge variety of songbirds. All 3 bedrooms have large sliding glass doors, allowing for cool breezes to flow through. The location is extremely private - in fact, quite perfect for honeymooners. The gourmet kitchen is spacious and bright with granite countertops, designer kitchen cabinets, all-stainless steel appliances, and even an air-conditioned walk-in pantry. Next to the kitchen is a large dining room table and beside it is the living room. Open up the doors and enjoy the sound of the surf and the cool ocean breezes. Just open up the double-wide patio doors and your living space is now connected to the large outdoor deck and the swimming pool. Fire up the bbq grilll and this spot becomes the best dinner deck in Samara.


From the 3rd and 4th floors, enjoy spectacularly beautiful panoramic views of Samara Beach, the small island of Isla Chora, the off-shore reefs, the sound of the surf. Unlike most properties this close to town, this house is surrounded by shaded, natural jungle. Mature trees are located throughout the property and give the house complete privacy from both the road and neighbouring houses. From your own deck, watch troops of monkeys swinging in the trees below, and watch flocks of squawking parakeets fly by.

All of bedrooms have remote controlled air-conditioning. Also, ceiling fans are located in the bedrooms as well as in the covered areas of the outside decks.
The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you will need: pots, pans, dishes and utensils to make eating at home both convenient and relaxing. There is a covered outside dining table as well as an indoor dining table.

To assist with luggage and help those with mobility issues, there is an elevator from the car park area to all levels of the house. Please note: to use the elevator you must make a special request at the time of booking.

Because of safety issues regarding the safety railing around the upper decks, we prefer to not rent to families with children under the age of 8. The railings around the deck are fine for adults but not for small children. For families with older children, this is truly a magical place where they can enjoy the very best of Costa Rica. Pura Vida!

Car: Recommended

Casa Estiyul is a 4 or 5 minute drive to the village of Samara. Located literally across the street from the beach, it is a 3-minute walk to beautiful sandy beachfront of Samara (approx. 300 metres away). If you are headed to town, continue walking westerly for another 8 minutes and you will be at the hub of Samara Village. From the house, it is a 6-minute drive to Playa Carrillo, another of Costa Rica’s favourite beaches. Unlike Samara, Playa Carrillo is completely undeveloped with only gorgeous palm trees, sand, surf, and the occasional picnic bench. Enjoy!!!

Casa Estiyul is situated at the end of a long driveway behind a distinctive, electronic gate. There is plenty of parking, both covered and uncovered. The grounds are fully landscaped and blend into the lush green jungle. A wonderful variety of song birds, howler monkeys, lizards and iguanas are all part of what make up the ambiance of this location.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2008

About: Casa Estiyul is located in Lower Samara Reefs, one of the finest. most luxurious developments in Costa Rica. My husband and I live full-time in Vancouver, Canada. We own Casa Colibri, one of seven beach houses in Samara Reefs just up the hill from Estiyul. Casa Estiyul is owned and maintained by the main Samara Reefs partners; the house is looked after on a daily basis by our partnerships' full-time Administrator and full-time Housekeeper, who have been valued key employees of ours for over 15 years. I look after the VRBO rental management of Casa Estiyul along with 4 of the other houses in Samara Reefs: Villa Mirador, Casa Colibri, Villa de Las Brisas, and Casa Centenario. If Casa Estiyul is booked for your dates, it is worthwhile checking with me because one of our other houses may be available. Our family visits Samara as often as we are able to, but while we are not there we are happy to rent these wonderful houses to responsible and 'gentle users'.

Why Sámara, Costa Rica:
Estiyul truly has a unique location. It is located across the street from Samara beach. In order to take advantage of its location, the living area and swimming pool are located on the 3rd floor - so you can enjoy being within walking distance to the beach AND have the spectacular ocean views. Casa Estiyul is a 3-minute walk to the beach and from there, a 10 minute stroll to beach-front restaurants, surf schools, coffee shops, and the town-center of Samara. A few miles to the west is another of Costa Rica's gems: Playa Carrillo, a fantastic undeveloped beach that is palm-lined, has perfect waves for body sufing and boogie boarding.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Casa Estiyul is super-close to Samara Beach, is ultra-modern, and yet is very private. Because it is so close to town and to the beach, it is a great choice if you are considering going car-less. It is only a 3 minute walk to the beach (300 metres) and another 10 minutes to the town-center of Samara. This property also offers tremendous privacy - it is surrounded by jungle but has no immediate neighbors on either side, it is great for honeymooners as it offers almost completely privacy. The jungle setting provides a wonderful variety of song birds, howler monkeys, and a variety of lizards and iguanas are all part of what make up the ambiance of this location. The house sits at the end of a long driveway behind a distinctive electronic gate, giving great security. Yet the minute you enter Casa Estiyul, you enter a world of luxury living: an ultra-modern, gorgeous designer house built to American building standards. A designer kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to produce gourmet meals, an outdoor barbecue. So as well as enjoying the many great restaurants, you have the option of eating breakfast and lunch and dinner with one of the best views in town. And because of the higher elevation, it is breezy and there are fewer mosquitoes. Casa Estiyul has it all: Modern living inside and jungle outside, your own pool, relaxing chaise lounges, a large outdoor deck and a backdrop of gorgeous beach and ocean views. Complete paradise!
