It is truly a cut above and worth your stay. Wildlife, jungle and a landscaped yard abound.
Amazing Family Retreat!
We got in very late (don't always trust Google Maps - compare it to the map that Andrew and Christine send you to make sure its the same route!) so when we arrived we basically just crashed. They had not one but TWO places for our babies to sleep set up and ready (one crib and one pack n play) which was AMAZING!! Imagine our surprise in the morning waking up to howler monkeys and the most amazing views!!! The entire house minus the bedrooms/kitchen is outdoors - so keep that in mind if you're not a nature lover! We saw the most amazing animals right there in the living room! Giant gorgeous moths, the biggest frogs we've ever seen lounging by the pool, and even a friendly coatimundi that seemed to enjoy the volleyball court at dawn! In addition to the crib/playpen, they also had a highchair set up for us! Very baby/toddler friendly!! We practically kept ours in their life jackets (we brought but they also had a child sized one!!) the whole time due to the proximity of the big pool.. but it didn't end up being a problem (for those of you considering bringing small kids - please do!)
Marilu and her daughter Daniella live pretty much onsite/down a small hill, and were so helpful! They prepared fabulous dishes, and kept fresh cut fruit and hot dogs handy at all times for the littles :) In addition, they assisted us with laundry a few times (lord knows we needed it with the heat/humidity and children!) and were even helpful via whatsapp to explain what certain animals and leaves were. They don't speak english but communication was easy with our broken spanish and google translate :) Wifi was perfect and they even had games, movies, and pool toys. Amazing stay and I've already recommended to all my friends with kids as finding places to accommodate little ones isn't always easy! Book it - you won't be sorry!
Hidden slice of Paradise
Our 2 separate families of 4 had a trip of a lifetime at this gorgeous and extremely unique property. Plenty of space, incredible views, great pool and several postcard worthy beaches within short drives. Carrillo is great, and Sámara is a great sleepy beach town with great restaurants and an awesome vibe. Marilou and Danielle took great care of us and were magnificent cooks! We can’t wait to return
Wonderful and Amazing Vacation. Homw made it better
This Home has the most beautiful view that Ive ever seen. Ive booked homeaway all over the states even Hawaii. This place is the best that Ive ever been to. The neighborhood (both towns) have anything that you need for any type vacation.
We couldn't quite believe how breathtaking this villa was when we first walked in. The views swept from mountains to sea, the open-air/ outdoor living space was always breezy and refreshing; the pool was the perfect temperature; the outdoor shower in the master bath was amazing; Marilou was a wonderful host and delightful chef. There was a family of coatimundi who lived in the backyard and snacked on mangoes from the tree, and a troop of howler monkeys who played in the trees behind the house. We loved playing ping-pong, darts, badminton, backgammon and pool games (perfect set up for family fun with our kids aged 9, 7, and 4 yrs), as well as lounging in the hammock or chaises. We felt like we were just relaxing in the lap of luxury. Thank you for sharing your house with us. We cannot recommend it enough!
It’s a beautiful home with a gorgeous view.
We felt at home right away. The fridge was stocked and dinner was kept warm on the stove. Marilu the caretaker (cook& cleaner) makes my vacation a vacation! All the rooms were beautifully decorated. We loved the beach at the bottom of the mountain. Hardly anybody was there and it felt like it was our own. The small commercial strip of Samara is perfect for grocery runs. Coffee and desserts, and quaint dinners. Our regret is A) not inviting more friends- 4 bedrooms is a lot of rooms B) not staying longer.
We saw a family of 5 monkeys on our last day eating mangoes in the backyard. The sounds of all the wildlife is amazing.
You need a 4 wheel drive car. But this adds to the adventure. The people were very accommodating and gracious. A very memorable trip.
