The smaller house (2 bedrooms/1 bath) on the same property with Casa Pacifica
This is a very unique and well built smaller house (2 bedrooms) on our property that also includes a larger 4 bedroom house with a pool (Casa Pacifica). This house has a full kitchen with an island an dining area, a full living room with cathedral ceilings, a front deck, a side covered terrace - and the entire place is covered in tile and wood from local artisans. This house shares a circular driveway and has it's own parking area, entrance and outside areas. It is separate from the main house for privacy but can also be rented along with the main house for large groups.
The property is directly between the towns of Samara and Carrillo. We are only 200 yards from Samara Beach, one of the safest swimming beaches in C.R.. Towns are convenient for shopping and restaurants, but far enough for some privacy. We do have 2 restaurants next door (The Hideaway Hotel and Montelaguna Boutique Hotel) and there are dozens of restaurants in Samara which is only 10 mins by car or a 45 minute walk down the beach from the house.
Samara is the perfect getaway for anyone who loves the beach and wants to be immersed in Costa Rican culture. It is a great destination for families since the beaches are great for swimming and the town of Samara is safe and laid-back. You can drive there from either Liberia International or San Jose Airport on paved roads. Two beaches are just minutes away on foot and are both perfect for swimming since they are warm water year round and protected by a barrier reef. Samara beach is only 200 yards from our front gate.
SO MUCH TO SEE: The area is full of nature. Local wildlife includes monkeys, iguana, coatamundi, whales, dolphin, crocodile and an endless array of birds.
SO MUCH TO DO: Activities in Samara include kayaking, boat tours and zip line canopy tours. This is also surfing county and Samara is a good place for the beginner or novice to ride the waves – or experts can head 30 minutes in either direction on the coast to world class surf. Carrillo has a great waterfall you can get to on horseback. Fishing fans will love the large variety of fish including rooster-fish, tuna, wahoo, dolphin (mahi), sailfish & blue marlin. For the thrill-seekers there are even ultra-light plane tours.

We are a family that started with a Canadian couple that moved to the USA (North Carolina) and added 3 adventurous kids. We plan to retire someday to Costa Rica. We built our property in CR for us to move to eventually - and in the meantime we are renting it year round. We love our staff in Costa Rica and we visit as much as possible.

Clean, comfortable place to call home, and close to the beach!
Great location, beautiful patio to sit and BBQ then watch the sky! Comfortable home with plenty of room. Will definitely recommend to friends and family! ☀️
Super awesome for big family getaway
We rented both houses for our big family! Very clean and comfortable.
House exactly as described, easy walk to the beach.
A nice comfortable place for a couple. We spent 4 weeks and loved the location. Short easy walk down to the beach. This is the far side of the beach from the town of Samara so a lot of the time we had the beach to ourselves. Perfect area to watch the sunset, which gets blocked by a hill on the Samara side of the beach.
House is well set up and comfortable. You do share the property with the larger house so there are people coming and going which wasn't an issue with us. A/C in the bedroom worked great, after we came in for the evening we ran the A/C for the upstairs loft with the drapes open for a couple of hours and it did a pretty good job of keeping the living room comfortable also.
The property managers did a good job getting us settled in. Cleaning service once a week worked out just fine for us. Samara area has issues with water system shutting down sometimes and it happened once and they had a water truck out to get the holding tank topped of promptly. During our month stay we had electricity go out a couple of times, no longer than 30 minutes. When that happens the water shuts off also. We started keeping a small trash can in the shower full of water so we could rinse off or flush the toilet if that happened at the wrong moment.
Only suggestions for improvements would be a fan over the kitchen table, wire the living room fan so you can turn the lights off and let the fan run and add to the kitchen utensils such as additional food storage containers and silverware.
We spent a month and were very happy with the house.
Very nice location, nice house and nice owners
It's the second year we rent the Casita Pacifica and just as the first time, we enjoyed it a lot. We can without a doubt recommend this place.

Love This House
This is a great area and a great house. For the cost of a single room in the hotel next door you have 2 bedrooms (well, 1 bedroom and a loft), a big kitchen and living room and lots of covered outdoor space. I can't say enough about the Samara and Carrillo towns and beaches - and this house is right on the edge of both of beaches.
Best value in Samara!
The Casita has everything you need for a high value vacation in Playa Samara. It's location ( proximity to two great beaches, Samara and Carrillo ) make it a standout. The Casita is well appointed: all the utensils that you'd need to cook and enjoy your meals ( BBQ was a plus ! ), a percolator to enjoy a morning coffee, an outdoor shower to cool off post beach activities.
For the single traveler or a couple, this property is hard to beat.
Samara Beach is an incredible destination for surfing, body boarding, body surfing and swimming. It has almost everythingl that Costa Rica has to offer including zip-lines, ATV rentals and tours, deep sea fishing, boating and dolphin tours, ultralight flights, sea turtle tours, horseback riding and more.
