BREATHTAKING OCEAN & MOUNTAIN VIEWS, 5 BEDROOMS, WALK TO BEACH

Samara Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 5 Bedrooms + Office, 4 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 10)

Casa Colibri is a fabulous 5,000 sq. ft. luxury beach house, built with comfort and entertaining in mind. There are 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a fabulous gourmet kitchen, a separate media room, and a 45-foot long salt-water, infinity-edge pool. There is great flow between the living room, the kitchen, and the outdoor dining room. From this area, folding glass doors open onto a huge pool deck, the pool, outdoor barbecue area and huge panoramic ocean views. The house is very open, comfortable and bright with vaulted ceilings and an open spiral staircase. Because it is located on a ridge overlooking the ocean, the folding glass doors allow incoming ocean breezes to keep you cool and comfortable. The living space is mainly on the main level, with 3 large bedrooms upstairs and 2 down. The dining room is cool and comfortable, receiving shade most of the day, and is located right next to the pool deck. The living space is large enough that even a group of 10 will find they are not cramped. The front of the house is mostly all windows which allows for great views of the ocean, Samara beach, the offshore reefs, and the small island of Isla Chora. On the other side of the house, the view is of a green canopied hillside.

The house was built in 2007-8 and is very high-end. It has many wonderful features such as Colombian limestone floors, dark wood finishing, custom-made furniture, hand-carved doors, designer kitchen cabinets, and a custom-made spiral staircase crafted by San Jose wrought iron artisan, Gilbert Ferrera. The soft furnishings, earthy colours, and abundance of natural materials gives the house a warm, comfortable feeling and every chair in the house is comfortable. The doors and windows are well designed to keep insects out and there are many windows with screens. While none of the houses in Samara Reefs have central air-conditioning, there are overhead fans and air-conditioners in all of the bedrooms and in the media room. Our housekeeper, Anna, is meticulous; everything in the house is extremely clean.

All of the 5 bedrooms have spectacular ocean views. The large master bedroom has a king-size bed, solid hardwood floors, a large furnished deck, remote control air-conditioning, a ceiling fan, reading lamps, lots of storage and closet space, and a large en-suite bathroom. Enjoy panoramic ocean views right from your bed or open up the doors and take in the view from the large deck. Furnished with a table and 4 comfy chairs, the deck is the perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee and wake up to the sounds of monkeys and birds. Because of our fabulous southern exposure, from here you can watch the sunrise and sunset. The bedroom has a large closet and a large, elegant en-suite bathroom. It has one-of-a-kind carved rock sinks, Kohler faucets, a glassed-in stone shower and a full bathtub.

The gourmet kitchen would exceed even a chef's expectations. It is fully-outfitted, centrally located, bright and inviting. With all stainless steel appliances, a large granite kitchen island, and a breakfast bar, the high-end gas stove and huge countertops make cooking easy. A unique feature is the large walk-in air-conditioned pantry. The kitchen is designed to accommodate several chefs and has great flow so no one bumps into the other people. The kitchen has gorgeous ocean views on 3 sides and is the 'hub'. Sliding glass doors lead out onto the outdoor dining room and the large pool deck.

The house is located on a low ridge which overlooks Samara Beach. It is an easy 10-minute walk to Samara beach. A variety of good restaurants are just 3 minutes further along. To get there, just walk down our long concrete driveway, walk across the road and then walk a short distance on a wide, shaded dirt road. This road brings you to WingNuts Canopy Tours and the entrance to Samara Beach. The busiest part of Samara Beach, where the surf schools are lined up, is another 8 minutes away. There are a variety of good beach-front restaurants, Italian, Thai, Mediterranean, French, German, Spanish, sushi, and Argentinian restaurants, at least surf schools, grocery stores, 2 banks, a butcher, bakeries, Info Center, souvenir shops, a gym, surf shops, a wine bar, a fish vendor, laundramats, a Medical Centre, a Pharmacy, as well as places to rent kayaks, bikes, horses, cars, and ATV's.

Because of the great variety in local grocery stores and produce stores, it is easy to buy your own food and barbecue it at home. Casa Colibri has a top-of-the-line barbecue/outdoor kitchen area next to the pool. Guests can sip on pre-dinner drinks and enjoy the view while the barbecue officianados do their thing at their own pool-side kitchen. The higher elevation and cool breezes keeps the area practically mosquito-free.

At 5:30, though, our favourite spot is cocktail hour on the sunset deck atop the carport. Here, you can enjoy fabulous sunsets, have wine and appetizers, and even watch monkeys swing through the trees below! Its built-in concrete furniture has enough seating for 20 people. But hurry because at 6:00 pm the sun goes down below the mountains.

Casa Colibri has a great location - on a ridge, away from noisy restaurants but close enough so you can walk to the beach. It's a 7-minute walk to Samara Beach, and the town of Samara, a 5 minute drive to Carrillo Beach (a pristine, white-sand, palm-lined beach: post-card perfect). Samara is about 3 blocks long by 2 blocks wide: here you will find a variety of good grocery store choices, 2 good bakeries, boutique shopping, ice cream shops, art stores, restaurants, the Samara Info Center, and a gym/spa. Whether your vacation is all about catching up on your reading at the beach, or taking surf lessons and going ocean-kayaking, Samara is perfect. You can do as much or as little as you want. But it is always a treat to return home to Casa Colibri and relax in its perfect, private salt water pool and take in the sparkling ocean views.

A unique feature next to our house is a large waterfall. When the water fountain comes on at 11 am, water flows through a river and through several small pools. Then it cascades over a wall into the shallow jungle pool below. We call it a jungle pool because it is surrounded by beautiful shrubs and palm trees. Sit under the waterfall for a great shoulder massage!

All 5 bedrooms have great ocean views, very comfortable beds, remote control air-conditioning, ceiling fans, closets and reading lamps. The bathrooms all have stone tile, glass doors, high-end shower fixtures, and good water pressure.

As for other amenities, there is an upstairs office with a desk, an overhead fan, and a well-stocked library. The house has wireless wi-fi. Bring your ipod to plug into our portable stereo.

The media room is a separate room located near the living room. It has remote control air-conditioning, a ceiling fan, lots of windows, comfortable leather furniture, a large TV, a DVD player, and plenty of DVD's. Because the door can be closed, it is perfect for kids. They can enjoy their movies while everyone else can have peace.

Samara Reefs has on-site, its own Administrator and Housekeeper team: Daniel and Anna. They live in a nearby house. If you don't know how something works, or have a question about something, no problem. Just phone Daniel and Anna. Daniel is a Master Builder who knows everything about the house, its appliances, the alarm system, the air conditioning, the plumbing and wiring, the water fountain, the gate, even the underground sprinkler system. His wife, Anna, is our Housekeeper. She will provide light housekeeping every few days. Daniel and Anna have been with Samara Reefs since we began construction in 2006 and they are honest, hard-working and super-helpful. Previously, Daniel built our partner's office building in San Jose and two other projects. Fortunately for us, Daniel and Anna decided to work for us in Samara.

Casa Colibri is one of 7 houses in the high-end gated community of 'Samara Reefs'. It is also extremely close to two of the safest, most family-friendly beaches in all of Costa Rica. Lonely Planet calls Carrillo one of the country's most beautiful and unspoiled beaches and in many guide books Samara Beach is described as the safest and prettiest beach in the country. With perfect long white sand beach with shallow, gentle waters, we agree. The coral reef offshore prevents dangerous rip currents, so Playa Samara is popular with swimmers, boogie-boarders and body-surfers. You can walk for miles and then find shade under the coconut palms.

Samara is small, unpretentious and kind of funky. There are no huge hotels and even with its many amenities, the town doesn't feel 'touristy'. Samara and Carrillo have an authentic feel, with many businesses owned & operated by local 'Ticos.' For years this area has been a favourite, and affordable, family vacation spot for Costa Ricans. The air is clean and fresh, the water from the tap is safe to drink, the beaches here get the highest awards for cleanliness, and birds are singing, it's PURA VIDA - 'the good life' for sure!

From the Liberia Airport the drive is easy. There are paved roads all the way, just ask Mary-Ellen for Driving Directions.

We are a family from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada with two school-age daughters. When we first visited Samara in 1992, we absolutely fell in love with it and immediately knew we would becoming back. We bought some property and for the next 10 years we enjoyed staying at the beach house high up on Punta Indio, Hacienda Punta Indio, vrbo #395744. In 2006, we started building Casa Colibri in the Samara Reefs Gated Community, a location we think is the absolute best in all of Samara. Because Samara Reefs is located on a ridge, it gets great ocean breezes but it also has a natural breezeway behind it, keeping it cool and comfortable and a couple of degrees cooler than down in the town. It is within easy walking distance to the beach and most of the walk is in the shade.

Because the property looks out onto the offshore reefs, we called our gated community 'Samara Reefs'. Since our 2 children are still in school, we rent out Casa Colibri during the months we cannot use it. Villa Mirador (393786) is 2 doors down and actually is for sale. While the housing market is quiet, we will rent out the house. We also rent out our original 4-bedroom beach house, Hacienda Punta Indio (395744).

Mary-Ellen Meyers, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada purchased this villa in 2008

We fell in love with Samara in 1992. We absolutely loved the beach and the town was so cute. It is big enough to have all the amenities you could want, but small enough that it is still has a wonderful, authentic Costa Rican feel. Samara Reefs is THE perfect location: it's on an elevated ridge so it has fabulous panoramic views and fresh ocean breezes. It is ideally located at the edge of a beautiful huge jungle, with two great beaches, Samara and Carrillo, nearby. Both beaches are among the safest for swimming, boogie-boarding and are excellent for families. You can walk for miles! Originally a fishing village, it is an excellent little town.

From Casa Colibri, it is an easy 10-minute walk to the beach, and most of it is in the shade. From up on our ridge, our house gets great breezes from the mountainside behind. Those cross-breezes are very important, because it can get VERY hot and uncomfortable mid-day at beach level.

All the homes in this gated residence are very high end and were designed by Costa Rican architect Karin Nagel. Our home is family-oriented and designed for a large group. This is because the house is a lot of fun when it is full !

If you like Casa Colibri, but the dates you want aren't available, make sure to check out Villa Mirador VRBO 393786, 4 bdrms and two houses away in Samara Reefs. For something more private and rustic, try our original beach house, 10 minutes away, called Hacienda Punta Indio: vrbo 395744.

Because our house is situated up on a bit of a ridge overlooking the ocean, the breezes off the ocean are fantastic. Breezes also come from the hillside behind us. These breezes keeps our house relatively cool as well as practically mosquito free. The house is built to high-end North American standards: it has well-sealed doors, plenty of screened windows, ceiling fans throughout, and air-conditioners in each bedroom.

The house has its own private, infinity-edge pool. It is 40 feet long and is perfect for a large group. Unlike most pools, ours is salt-water so it doesn't have a strong chlorine smell.

Adjacent to us is a waterfall feature which is amazing! Sit under the cascading waterfall and get an invigorating massage! Or hang out in the underground grotto behind the waterfall - TRULY the coolest spot in Samara.

The hillside behind our house is a completely undisturbed jungle. Much of it is owned by WingNuts Canopy Tours who have preserved its natural habitat. It is home to parakeets, iguanas, and howler monkeys. Monkeys are all around the trees in Samara Reefs. If you walk down our driveway, sometimes you can see families of monkeys up in the trees. Here, you get luxury AND jungle.

Our carport is so perfectly positioned for sunset-viewing that we built a 'sunset deck' on top! You can watch monkeys throughout the day, see (and hear) the incoming parakeets at 4:30 pm, and enjoy sunsets each night at 5:30 pm.

We have a caretaker couple, Daniel and Anna Quiros, who live on-site in their nearby casita. Daniel and Anna are an extremely helpful couple and we always receive compliments from our guests on how excellent they are. Daniel was able to track down some lost luggage. Another week, he came to the rescue when our wireless router broke due to a power surge. Super helpful.

The drive to our house is paved ALL the way, so it's not even necessary to rent an SUV.

If you like wine, Samara's wine supplier lives right in Samara Reefs and delivers.

Our family of six (us and our 4 young adult children) stayed four nights in this spectacular home with amazing views. The home was beautifully decorated and had very nice amenities. We enjoyed the infinity pool from morning till night, being thrilled with the iguana in the daytime and the fireflies at night. A 10 minute walk down the hill to the beach was easy even when we experienced a sudden rain on the way back up! A binder of information in the home was helpful in planning activities and considering restaurants. The butcher in Samara supplied us with delicious meat for our authentic Costa Rican barbecue cooked by our visiting friends. The home is in a nice gated community which provided both security and privacy. Daniel, the caretaker, was available to assist as needed. The views from all angles of the home were incredible and provided such a lovely setting to relax and have fun. A wonderful restaurant we recommend is Ma Ma Gui - a delicious French restaurant in town. Swimming and boogie-boarding at the beach, swimming at the pool, and a dolphin/snorkeling expedition were some of the activities we enjoyed - though the afternoon water was too cloudy for snorkeling.

The owner was easy to contact and quick to respond. We loved staying in this most beautiful home and look forward to returning!

No worries about getting lost, and we loved having the full sized SUV for the convenience of grocery shopping, and trips to Carillo beach. Everything is so close, it was easy taking two trips to transport us around when we needed it.

Once we got there, activities were so close and either free or reasonably priced. Our kids kept thanking us for finding such a perfect place. They loved the low key, kind people, at every turn, and the beautiful setting overlooking the pacific was amazing. From age 7 to 68, there was something for everyone. Thank you Mary Ellen and family for sharing your piece of paradise with us!!!!

PS. It's been a crazy busy summer, and things have come up that delayed my review, and I apologize. Almost forgot to thank Mary Ellen and the wonderful people in Costa Rica who helped reunite my granddaughter with her beloved stuffed puppy she accidentally left under the bed at Casa Colibri. Their efforts went above and beyond, and our dear granddaughter was thrilled weeks later when the courier arrived with her special package.

Oh, and how I miss the fried plantains and guacamole !!!

The time our family spent at Casa Colibri was a dream come true. I kept thinking the photos in the website, must have been taken with a special camera, but when we arrived, we found it even more beautiful than the website photos, with our pictures showing the place as good as we had expected. I walked the grounds taking photos of different types of flowers in bloom, and was astonished at the number. The monkeys were ever present every night, and the grand kids thoroughly enjoyed the lizards in the evenings. Our trip to Costa Rica was a nature lovers dream. The Wingnuts crew made it possible for our whole group to zip line together, which was thrilling beyond belief, particularly the repelling at the end. Our walks into town for lunch each day allowed us to enjoy the local food. We all agreed the food was amazing, a real treat! We surfed, paddle boarded, boogie boarding, surveyed tide pools, collected shells, and walked and jogged along the beaches. My husband received a free massage on the beach from a massage school student. One day when we were hot and tired, the neighbor we had met the night before, stopped and offered my daughter and I a ride up the hill. Another neighbor helped with initial settling in and translating, and another neighbor was there for us when we needed to purchase wine. Hospitality was everywhere!

Casa Colibri was designed perfectly. The kitchen is open and a great place to enjoy time preparing food together. We enjoyed breakfasts and dinners together, with the dining table being the heart of our gatherings. With the infinity pool right there, we spent hours enjoying the refreshing water. For a change in pace, the grandchildren loved the toys, and played in the theater room, and the guys loved being able to watch the basketball playoffs there. The bedrooms were retreats when alone time was needed. Every space was appreciated--hats off to the architect.

Mary Ellen was so helpful! Her communication in preparing for our trip gave us so much information, we felt confident and ready. We hired Costa Rica Shuttle to take us from Liberia. The driver was so kind to follow us to the Dollar Car Rental with the women and children, so the men could get the SUV and then follow the shuttle to Casa Colibri. He then stopped at a convenient store for us to pick up drinks and snacks. He stopped to show us monkeys, and as we got closer to Samara, he stopped at a grocery store where he went in and helped us locate items. It was perfect. No

We spent 10 days in that fantastic house. We were 4 adults and 5 children and the house was big enough for all of us. The location is perfect, the view on Samara beach is breathtaking and the outside facilities (pool, patio, BBQ, ...) are just amazing.
The communication was easy with the owners.
We will go back for sure!

Worldclass ziplining is just 5 min away. The two beaches have perfect waves for body surfing, boogie boarding, and the chest-high water is great for those learning to surf. Rent boogie boards for $2/day, bicycles, horses, ATV's or kayaks. Go ocean kayaking to the tiny island of Isla Chora. Go snorkelling or diving. Or take yoga classes on the beach. Ever wanted to fly in an ultraflight and gyrocopter? See the beach from overhead in the Flying Crocodile's gryocopter. Great to experience. Samara is close to 3 National Parks, including Barra Honda, an amazing underground limestone cave millions of years old! Go to Ostional - if you're lucky, you can see hundreds of Olive Ridley turtles laying their eggs ... or hatchching. Go to an internationally recognized massage school or an excellent Spanish language school. Go deep-sea fishing for sailfish or marlin or charter a smaller boat and catch tuna and dorado for dinner. See the fabulous tricks dolphins do in the wild. Animal lovers will want to see the exotic animals at La Selva Animal Refuge & Zoo - imagine watching up close a jaguarundi, kinkajou, anteater, a baby howler, a toucan or vampire bats! Golf 9 holes at Punta Islita, take the Palo Verde river cruise, or take a guided hike through the jungle. Tons to do!

Notes:
Samara Reefs is a gated community with a caretaker couple, Daniel and Anna, who live in a casita across the street. Daniel will greet you upon arrival, give you an orientation session of the house, give you the keys, gate keys, show you the security system, and be on-hand to help if you need assistance with anything to do with the house. Anna will come to do light housekeeping every 2 days (sweeping and cleaning bathrooms). The beach is very close and is an easy 10-minute walk. This gated community has a full-time gardener, well-maintained gardens, landscape lighting, walking paths, and an automatic gate. The location is probably the very best in Samara - close to town but not too close. Up on a breezy ridge but a short walk to the beach. Next to natural jungle so some of the best monkey and bird-viewing is right on the property. Our driveway makes an excellent morning walk.
