About the Property

3 bedroom, 2.5 bath with Mountain Views

The house has lofted ceilings with windows and fans for ventilation as well as air conditioning in the bedrooms. There are three bedrooms; Master bedroom with queen bed, walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom with double sink, Second Queen bedroom with ensuite bathroom and a third bedroom with a twin over double bunk bed. There is a Pack N Play crib available for infants. Fully equipped kitchen: fridge with ice-maker, electric range, microwave,toaster & coffee-maker, breakfast bar seating for 4. Dining area seats 6. Living room has a sectional sofa with a TV and Blu-ray player with a variety of adult and family movies (DVD). There is a two piece bathroom and laundry room with washer and dryer adjacent to the kitchen. The back porch adjacent to the third bedroom is gated and screened, allowing fresh, cooler air to flow through at night. Casita Amarilla backs onto the Werner Sauter Biological Reserve - the jungle is literally right outside the back door, as can be seen in the photos, where howler monkeys are a frequent sighting. There is an abundance of other wildlife in and around the property, particularly in the green season - iguanas and other lizards, a variety of birds and butterflies as well as the occasional coati sighting.

Car: Recommended

Samara is a laid back village with an authentic Tico feel and is a popular destination among both Tico's and tourists. A variety of shops, services, restaurants and bars are within walking distance along the mainstreet of Samara. A 5 minute walk from the entrance of Samara will put you on the beach. Because Samara Beach is protected by a reef, the surf is gentle and safe for children. There are many local activities available, with several adventure companies offering various tours and activities. Several other beautiful beaches are with 10 minutes to 1/2 hour drive from Samara; Playa Carrillo to the south and Playas Buenavista and Barrigona to the North.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2014

About: We are a family of five, living in Toronto, Canada. My husband and I (Hugo and Melanie) have 3 kids, a boy and two girls (ages 10, 6 and 3 at time of purchase). We had rented a house in neighboring Carrillo in 2013 and fell in love with the area. After doing some research on Costa Rica and specifically the Samara region, we decided this was where we want our eventual home to be.

Why Sámara, Costa Rica:
We were drawn to this property for many reasons. The location is private and natural with plenty of space for growing flowers and fruit trees. A multitude of wildlife is practically at our doorstep. We are close enough to the highway and town that getting about is easy. There's convenient access to many shops, restaurants and services - and the beach! - just 2.5 km/1.5mi away - accessible with a short drive, by public transit or even walking if so inclined.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
At Casita Amarilla you will have privacy and solitude, yet it is only a 5 minute drive into the village of Samara. Our property backs on to the Werner Sauter Biological Reserve, literally right outside the back door. Howler monkeys are frequent visitors in the trees right behind the house, along with the occasional coati (pizotes), iguanas, and many types of birds.
