Overview

Samara House Rental Photos and Description

Houses (4 Bedroom with pool, 2 Bedroom - see description), (Sleeps 10 + 4)

Casa Pacifica (4 bedrooms, up to 10 people) WITH POOL

& Casita Pacifica (2 bedrooms, up to 4 people) NO POOL

- rented separate or together

Casa Pacifica is a luxury beach house offering a prime location 200 yards from one of best beaches in Costa Rica. The house is on a large private property just steps from two incredible beaches (Playa Samara and Playa Carrillo) and you are walking distance to the towns of Samara and Carrillo for a real taste of real Costa Rican culture. This is a perfect place for an active family vacation or just a relaxing, casual getaway. Samara Beach (200 yards from our door) is widely recognized as one of the safest and most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica.

This four-bedroom home has two masters and a great living area which opens up to the kitchen and a large covered terrace overlooking the pool. The pool is surrounded by a lush garden, and you can expect to be visited by monkeys, iguanas, land-crabs, red-tailed squirrels and scores of other lizards and birds. Samara Beach is known to be one of the safest swimming beaches on the west coast of Costa Rica but is also great for surfing too.

There is also another smaller house on the same property, Casita Pacifica. If you want a total of 6 bedrooms you can ask about renting both houses for your stay. Otherwise, both houses have their own entrance, driveway, terrace and parking and the pool and backyard are completely private to the main house.

Boats can pick you up right at the beach (200 yards up the road) for world-class sport-fishing, turtle & dolphin tours or just a tour of the beautiful coastline. Included with the house are two kayaks so that you can tour the safe waters or go visit Isla Chola and have and entire island to yourself. You can learn to surf in Samara and catch intermediate waves,and you are only 15 miles away from some of the top surfing breaks in the world.

This is definitely one of the finest rentals in Samara. Our staff is around daily to ensure you have an amazing vacation. Wall-to-wall tile, luxury linens, thick towels & large walk-in showers await you and housekeeping and security is included - all you have to do is enjoy yourself.

About Paul

We are Canadians living in North Carolina with a rental property in Costa Rica. We have 3 great, active and young children and like to spend as much time each year on our property as possible. We hope to someday retire to Costa Rica, but have a long way to go.

Paul purchased this house in 2007

Why Paul chose Samara

We choose Guanacaste on the advice of many Tico's we have met - since it's techically dry forest, it offers many more months of lower humidity, less rain and less bugs - but it still has a great tropical climate. After touring all over Guanacaste, we chose Samara because it's the best family destination. The beach there is protected by the reef and is one of the safest swimming beaches on the West Coast & the town is just big enough to offer everything you need. It also is 'locally grown', made up of a bunch of independently owned hotels and restaurants (no chains at all). It has all the same sights and tours that the larger beach towns offer (arguably the best beach around) - but without the crowds and party element.

What makes this house unique

Our property is on the far end of Samara Beach from the town of Samara. The property offers a lot of privacy, a lot of nature and guests often have most of the beach to themselves. It's close enough to Samara to be convenient to stores, restaurants and bars - but far enough from town to enjoy the mornings and evenings with just the sounds of nature around you. The house definitely one of the finest rentals in the area and our staff is fantastic.

Bad experience

  • 3 of 5
We have one of the worst experience because some people stole the house during the second night. At least two people got into the house while we were sleeping and took some stuff. We never meet the guard and it supposed we had a guard during the night.

Owner's Response: We always take the security of our guests very seriously and have taken additional steps to ensure that the house and property are secure as possible going forward. We do have a security guard at night and we were able to confirm he was onsite and roaming the grounds during the reported theft - the police did not find any proof of forced entry and could not find proof that anything was taken from the house (nothing of the owners was taken). Regardless, even though the renter claimed that windows were left unlocked and items taken were left on the living room (not in the provided safe)......we refunded the entire cost for their stay.

We personally bring our family to our house every year and share it with our friends. We will continue to ensure that the property is secure.

Fairytale Setting!

  • 5 of 5
This is an amazingly beautiful and spacious home. The exotic backyard/pool was probably the best part for us. Beautiful and also magical listening to the howler monkeys or watching a lightning storm roll in. While we sampled many of the local restaurants in Samara and Carillo, (don't miss El Lagarto) our favorite evening was probably the one we spent grilling fresh Mahi Mahi on the patio and hanging out. The central location of the home makes it easy to walk to the action or enjoy the seclusion. If you're looking to ride horses down the beach, Walter (look for him on the beach) will bring the herd to your door and offer an experience you will not forget. Also can't rave enough about the property managers, Melissa and David. They were assisting us in navigating a foreign country at every turn and regularly went out of their way to be helpful. A few other favorites: Lo Que Hay on the beach for hanging out any time of day; Wingnuts for some easy zip-lining; Pato's for learning how to surf. Thank you for allowing us to use your home!

Best Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5
THis house was the launchpad for the best vacation I've ever had. The are is the perfect blend of off the grid and yet close to lots of fun things to do. While we were there we went fishing twice, once on a large boat from which we caught several sailfish and Dorado, On the second trip we fished for bottom fish and my friend caught the largest snapper I've ever seen...seriously I didn't know they got that big. We also got to see lots, and by lots I mean hundreds, of spinner dolphin turtles and other sea life. Another friend was surfing some large waves at a beach that was just up the road, while we were watching him we got to see a litter of baby turtles released into the ocean...that same beach is a turtle sanctuary. I myself got to do a bit of surfing on a much tamer set of waves just up the beach in town at Samara...all in all the house was perfect, very well outfitted, clean comfortable, safe...and the west coast of Costa Rica is AWESOME! just the right blend of adventure and chill!! You'll love it!

Amazing Costa Rica Adventure!

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Pacifica! The house was pristine and large enough to suit all of our needs. We were pleasantly surprised by the beautiful back yard and luxurious pool - we picked several fruit that were delicious (I wish I knew their names). We walked to town along the beach, had tasty breakfast and lunch, and surfed in between. Everyone was so nice and helpful. We went fishing and caught some beautiful fish that we grilled at the house, and saved some for a local woman who made us ceviche - simply amazing. After each day's adventure we arrived back home to a clean and welcoming house - the staff at Casa Pacifica were pleasant and kept the house and grounds beautiful. We could not have asked for more both from the house and from this beautiful country. Throughout our vacation we kept trying to figure out how we can move here for good! Thank you Paul, your house was amazing and we had an unforgettable adventure in Costa Rica!

Amazing Vacation House

  • 5 of 5
The property is an amazing place to stay, it is luxurious and very comfortable with air conditioning on every room, a kitchen that has all the appliances of a high end house in north america and even more. It has a beautiful pool and very close proximity to beach. House really makes you feel calm, no second floor or big stairs, it has an open floor where kitchen is connected to family room.
I spent many mornings walking/running on the beach and stoping at a Samara restaurant with beach front to get a fresh, healthy and delicious shake.
For dinner there are lots of options in Samara, unlike the US, nobody pushes you out of restaurants, you need to ask for the check otherwise you can sit and enjoy the beach all afternoon with only one beer on your hand.
I am originally from Peru (the place of birth of Ceviche) and did enjoy Ceviche in Costa Rica. There are lots of beaches to visit nearby and activities to do. Every afternoon when we returned we saw a clean and beautiful house.
People working in the premises are very professional and do a great job taking care of the garden, cleaning the house and adding security at night time.
I would return to this house in a heart beat.
Lots of likes!

Vacaciones maravillosas

  • 5 of 5
Hemos pasado unos días en Casa Pacífica y han sido maravillosos. La casa es preciosa, todos hemos disfrutado de la piscina tan bonita y de los jardines. El comedor para 10 personas estupendo, podíamos cenar toda la familia junta, y la cocina muy bien equipada, la mejor de todas las casas que he rentado hasta el momento. Los dormitorios y los baños muy bonitos y cómodos. No se me ocurre nada que no me haya gustado de la casa, salvo quizá poner una cortina más gruesa en el dormitorio principal del ala derecha.
Gracias a Melissa por su maravillosa atención y a Giselle por lo bien que ha cuidado de nosotros estos días. Gracias por todo Paul, seguro repetiremos la experiencia!!!
