About Shannon Barnett and Axel Dhermilly

Hello! Thank you so much for your interest in Villa Vista Linda. We are Shannon and Axel. We live in Canada with our two children. Axel is originally from France and I was born and raised Canadian. After much travelling all over the world we have finally fulfilled our dream of owning a wonderful vacation property. We have traveled extensively both separately and together and we have fallen in love over and over with many parts of the world, but the first time we came to Costa Rica we knew we had found our place. There is just something magic about it. There is an energy here that we haven't found anywhere else. No matter where we have traveled within the country we always felt like we were being taken care of. We feel this is because the Tico people are so wonderful. When we arrived in Samara specifically, we just new we were home. We hope that you will enjoy our condo villa and we will do everything we can to make your experience one for the books!

Why Shannon Barnett and Axel Dhermilly chose Guanacaste

Samara is such a special town. All the amenities you desire and a 4 mile long white sand beach that rivals any you can find in the Caribbean. We chose it because you can enjoy the town on a romantic vacation or you can bring the whole family. The beach is safe and wonderful for kids. Enjoy lunch at one of the incredible beachfront restaurants while you watch your kids play in the sand in front of you. There is excellent beginner surfing or you can book an adventure tour for more advanced surfing one beach over in Carillo Bay, ziplining, etc.

What makes this villa unique

Axel and I love modern architecture and the juxtaposition of this unique property against the jungle and the ocean views is absolutely breathtaking. There really is nothing else like it in Samara. You can have the privacy and serenity of the hilltop jungle, or be in town in just moments.

Very comfortable house with amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We went to Samara over Spring Break and had a very memorable time. Samara, Costa Rica is a great place to be with a ton of things to do for adults and kids.

The house itself is very nice and the pictures are quite accurate. The beds are very comfortable and there is a useful kitchen area with all of the utensils and plates that you need. We cooked there quite a bit and there are several small to medium sized markets and grocery stores with plenty of reasonably priced products. As far as arranging excursions, Luis helped us every step of the way -- this guy is a rockstar. Extremely personable, he is what really made our trip one to remember.

Finally, the owners, Shannon and Axel, were terrific. Shannon was very responsive to questions that we had - they were committed to ensuring our satisfaction and it really showed.

Bottom line is that you cannot go wrong if you stay in this house. You will not be disappointed! Pura Vida!

Amazing views, lovely property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this rental property in Samara! My husband and I and our four girls (ages 6-21) all stayed in the home. The view was more than I ever expected, so much more amazing in person than in the pictures. The house was well equipped with everything that we needed and it was great to have a private pool right outside the door! Shannon was great about responding and getting back to me quickly. The property manager Luis was helpful and even cut down some fresh coconuts for us to enjoy the water from. The town was laid back and relaxed, just how a beach town should be. All of the locals were very friendly and helpful. The beach was so beautiful and despite the town being quite busy, it was not crowded at all and felt very private. The only thing for us with having younger kids, although it's not too far to the beach (took us about 15 mins), it was very steep and pretty difficult for our 6 year old. No problem though, we were able to just park right by the beach as we had a rental car. Thank you Shannon for allowing us to stay in your home and make memories that will last us a lifetime!

Excellent location, view is amazing!

  • 4 of 5

We could not have had a better experience. The location is perfect, the view is spectacular and Luis was fantastic. There are too many great things to list them here, so you just have to go experience it for yourself. We would definitely return to this exact location (and hope to one day).

Nice Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family (wife, our 2-yr old twins, and my parents) rented both units for a week. View is wonderful, as was the breeze, the pools and the nearby beaches. It was easy to relax, even with the little ones. Luis was always a call or text away if we had any issues (for example, he promptly found us some more bbq charcoal when it ran out) and he sold us some delicious fresh fish. Nearby Samara and Playa Carrillo were beautiful and fun for swimming. Also, the owner Shannon was very responsive and helpful in answering questions, etc. Thank you Shannon and Luis for a great vacation!

THE VIEW!!! SHORT TRIP INTO TOWN!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for four nights and was by far our favorite part of the trip! Samara is such a cool town and the views this property had were spectacular!!! We would sit by the pool for hours, relaxing, watching the wildlife and enjoying the view. The house itself is beautifully designed and updated. It provides anything and everything we needed. A very short car ride into town. Communication with Shannon was excellent and the house manager,Luis, was great! Very easy communication and available to answer any questions we had. A trip highlight was going on an ATV tour from Outback and Luis ended up being our guide, Very thrilling! We look forward to returing in the future and will recommend Samara and most definitely this property to others!!!
