LUXURY BY THE BEACH - GREAT FOR FAMILIES OR MULTIPLE COUPLES

Samara House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms or more (optional, see description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Casa Pacifica (4 bedrooms)

& Casita Pacifica (2 bedrooms) - 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 driveway 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.

We are Canadians living in North Carolina with a beach house in Costa Rica. We have 3 great, active and young children and like to spend as much of the Summer in our beach house as possible. We hope to someday retire to Costa Rica, but have a long way to go.

Paul purchased this house in 2007

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 intependantly owned hotels and restaurants (no chains at all).

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.

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!!!

This property was everything we'd been led to belive. The home is comfortable and private. The people who care take are exceptional. Victor, the pool/gardener, Alonso and Adriana, living on the grounds, her sister, Marybeth doing maid work and their wonderful momasita who makes fabulous ceviche!
The dogs, Sammy, Charity and Linda are well behaved and a pleasure to have around.
The pool is shallow, but excellent for a cool down after a walk home from Playa Carrillo where we loved to swim. The back yard is shared by many birds in the mornings and late afternoons....what a treat!
When we did have any problems, they were instantly seen to by Alonso or Victor. We wanted for nothing.
There are super restaurants to enjoy in Samara, El Lagarto being our favorite for North American style, and El Tucan above Playa Carrillo was a drive to get to, but well worth the trip! It is tipico food, but with an authentic twist we have never had before.
This was our 5th time in Costa Rica and our first in Playa Samara. We would absolutely return!

Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5
We chose this house for its size and location. We wanted a place on the west coast where our kids can learn to surf and do all the fun activities that are within short drive of Samara. First the road to Samara is excellent.

The house is perfect for large families or multiple couples and has EVERYTHING you need while there. If you need something they dont have the wonderful caretakers will help you find it or take care of it for you.

We had 4 adults and 5 kids ranigng from ages 6-13 and all had plenty to do in the area. Thanks for the great vacation.

Nicest home within walking distance of the beach.

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful home! We had the pleasure of spending last week in Samara at Casa Pacifica. The house was spacious and comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and the pool was clean and warm. The house was everything I expected and the photos are 100% accurate. The Internet worked perfectly and was fast enough to even stream movies. The home has both wifi (to use your own device) and a laptop available for guest use. I downloaded an iPhone app called talkatone and was able to make international calls for free over the wifi.

There are several iguanas that live on the property. During the day they like to bask in the sunshine on the roof of the house. Usually at the hottest time of the day we could see 4 iguanas on the roof at once and my son sleeping in the hammock under the tiki hut. We heard monkeys in the trees and a few blocks from the house we saw a howler monkey family (with a tiny baby) very close up in a fruit tree. I got great pictures!

The property is gated. At night there is a guard dog that roams the property. The house is at the far south end of Playa Samara which is the nicest part of the beach. It's about half a block walk from the house to the beach. A short walk further south on the beach there is a small cove (just beyond some rocks) which provides seclusion and a very calm swimmimg area. This was my favorite spot! It takes about 40 minutes to stroll up the beach into town.

It is also a short walk down the road to Playa Carillo. This beach has picnic tables and benches along the palm lined shore. About a 30 min driive north from Samara is the beautiful white sand beach called Playa Barrigona. You need 4 wheel drive to get to this one. Some people park and walk the rough road. This beach is very worth the effort and yet you will often have this pristine playa all to yourself. I also recommend a drive south of Carillo. The road winds through some small towns and goes high into the mountains, but it's also paved and easy driving. It's a beautiful drive.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week in Samara at Casa Pacifica. While Samara is a sleepy little beach town, we found there was plenty to do and see...... Or just kick back and enjoy the amenities of this lovely home.

Perfect Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5
We had a superb week while staying at Case Pacifica. The house was only a 2 minutes walk from Samara beach and a 10 minutes walk from Carrillo beach. Carrillo beach is best if you were looking for shade under some palm trees. Both beaches are very quiet and uncrowded.
The people in Samara village are very friendly and helpful. We usually walked on the beach to get to and from village, but for when we didn't feel like it we would take a taxi for 6$ for a one-way trip.
There are some nice restaurants along the Samara beach at the village. We would usually eat lunch at the village and then some individuals of our group would take turns cooking a fantastic meal for diner. The kitchen was well equipped with the utilities we needed to cook everything we wanted.
Everyone slept very comfortably. It was best to wake up early (6AM) to be able to enjoy most of the day's sunlight. We had Adriana cook us breakfast a couple times - she was really nice and very helpful!
We did a day-trip to Monteverde Cloud Forest with Carrillo Tours (who are conveniently located up the road from Casa Pacifica!). We will surely be returning for another vacation at Casa Pacifica in the future.

Great times were had!

  • 5 of 5
A group of us friends stayed there and had an awesome time. The cleaning lady and pool boy/yard maintenance/taxi driver were really friendly and nice. They both don't speak much English but we were lucky to have Spanish speakers within our group to help translate.

The property is very well maintained and the house was really clean. The pool was a treat to help cool down.

The town is either a 2$, 2 minute cab away or 30 min. walk down the beach. It's a good, beautiful walk so I can't complain.

We got put in contact with a tour company that took care of picking us up at the airport and bringing us to the house (about a 3 hour drive). They also stopped at a store for us to pick some food up. They drove us to Montevede for some zipline and we also did a horse back riding tour with them.
