Overview

Samara House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Casa Malinche is the centerpiece of the MarAzul Estate. Perched high on the summit of the property, visitors to Casa Malinche can enjoy unobstructed views of the valley, Buena Vista Beach and Turtle Sanctuary, and the Pacific Ocean. The home is a traditional style Costa Rican villa, measuring 2500 square feet with three bedrooms (air conditioned), two large full baths, kitchen, dining area, office, laundry, and unique common areas to enjoy with family and friends. The Rancho Bar (with a full bath) seats 17 people and is the perfect area to entertain family and guests while they enjoy the custom infinity edge pool. You can also enjoy the unique view of the ocean sunsets or gaze at the millions of bright stars at night. Whether its magnificent sunrises, sunsets, star glazing or entertaining in grand style appeals to you, Casa Malinche is a “private paradise”.

The rates quoted within include the residence for the reserved period, linens, cookware, etc. If you require meals to be prepared by our staff, please advise us in advance along with any dietary restrictions/requirements.

Why The Owner chose Samara

The owner of the property is a native Costa Rican that enjoyed Samara and the secluded nearby beaches long before paved roads reached the area. The small village of Esterones is a tight knit community that is close enough to Samara, Garza, and Nosara to take part in their nightlife and 'action' but far enough away to truly be immersed in the natural beauty of Costa Rica.

What makes this house unique

Casa Maliche has been updated to include all modern conveniences (WiFi, Satellite TV, Air Conditioning, private pool, rancho bar) while keeping the traditional Costa Rican style.

We had a great week in this beautiful house. The pool is big enough and the ocean view is espectacular. The house is close to many beautiful beaches. I can't wait to get back soon!!!

This was one of our best vacations, hands-down!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Casa Malinche for 10 days this month. We just got home last week and want to go back already!! The house was beautiful and had everything we needed. The staff was incredible. Johnny was super helpful with everything. We had two meals prepared for us by Teresa and Elena who were also wonderful. We wanted to make a special Costa Rican meal ourselves, so Teresa told us what to buy and then helped us prepare it. We were so thrilled when she accepted our invitation to stay and eat with us! This place is truly worth every penny! You can get the full Costa Rican experience and enjoy being spoiled a bit! As for the area...make sure to spend time at Playa Carrillo and Playa Buena Vista. Playa Barrigona is beautiful but the water is a bit rough...great for surfers! I don't think we ever went to a beach that had more than 10 other people on it! Playa Samara was busy, but that's because it's right off the downtown. I can't wait to go back!!!

Excelente lugar

  • 4 of 5

La casa es muy comoda, super espaciosa, la piscina grande, perfecta para relajarse, la casa cuenta con 4 cuartos grandes, una sala grande y comoda y cocina excelente con todos los utencilios necesarios, afuera en el area de piscina hay dos "bares" con muchos asientos y espacio libre ideal para hacer cocteles y pasar un buen rato, tambien una parrilla de gas en excelente estado para ppder hacee un buen asado. El staff super atentos y todos los días desde bien temprano tenian todo limpio y ordenando.

Los unicos dos puntos negativos son 1. El lugar en invierno es bastante largo de accesar despues de samara hay bastante camino x lo.menos 10 km sin asfaltar y con lluvia se hace bastante tedioso manejar

2. En la noche fuera de la casa en el area de piscina y alrededores hay demamasiadoa insectos y ranas por lo q despues de las 630 es mejor estar dentro de la casa.

Aparte de esos dos puntos todo lo demas me parecio excelente

We had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

The time we spent at the Mar Azul property was awesome. The whole crew in charge of the property was great, very helpful and accommodating. The pool was a hit with the kids and the views were spectacular. We saw monkeys and even an armadillo came to visit us a couple of times. The place is very private, but close to shopping in Samara and close to great beaches such as Carrillo, Buena Vista and Samara. We would definitely come back to this property and recommend it for anyone's vacation.

Incredible View, Property and Service

  • 5 of 5

Jim the owner and his staff were fabulous. The house itself sits way above the small town of Samara and each morning the view delighted again. Having our own pool was wonderful even though the warm ocean water was frequented almost daily. The clean and cool pool water was refreshing in the humidity of the Costa Rica summer. The grounds are beautifully maintained and owner is on site. He is helpful but not intrusive. He was able to fulfill our needs for our evening meal most nights and we switched to lunch the second week. We had family members from 12 to 81, all of whom agreed that this was the perfect vacation. A 4 wheel drive is necessary to ford the river and climb the driveway, but the trip is well worth it. The housekeepers were very flexible with our big family's schedule and very sweet and thorough. Don't miss out on this beautiful spot!
