We are a Costa Rican-American family based in San José, Costa Rica. My father now partly retired started exploring and investing in property in the region nearly 30 years ago and fell in love with this place for its pristine beaches, exuberant vegetation, friendly people and laid back atmosphere. We started building our dream home in Samara Reefs in 2006. As an interior designer this was a project close to my heart and enjoyed working closely with our wonderful friend and Architect Karin Naguel as we shared the same vision of integrating the beauty of the magnificent surroundings into every corner of the house, with free flowing indoor/outdoor spaces that take in the stunning ocean and mountain views, cool breezes and soothing sounds of the waves breaking on the shore. We hope to be able to share our dream of paradise with you in the near future.

owner/ property manager purchased this villa in 2008

Samara is simply one of the safest and prettiest beaches in the country, with its long stretch of of sandy beach, shallow, gentle waters, coral reefs and its very own island in the bay, Isla Chora. The town of Samara is charming, unique and picturesque with a wide variety of restaurants and beach side bars and it is also a thriving fishing and farming community.

There are cowboys and cattle drives, fishing boats returning at sunset, exotic fruit harvests, specialty and organic farming, tree nurseries and reforestation projects. There are unusual plant and animal species, ancient Indian sites, underwater caves and coastal and mountain nature trails.

Guitar, Spanish, yoga, aerobic and dancing lessons and massages are available.

Just south of the popular surfer’s paradise of Samara Beach, Playa Carrillo is one of our favorite spots as one of the least developed most beautiful natural beaches on the Nicoya Peninsula. Framed by mountains, the laid-back fishing village has a white-sand beach just off a palm-lined boulevard with no unsightly beachfront buildings. Known among divers for its excellent coral reef teeming with marine life, the beach is protected by rocky headlands, providing calm, warm water for swimmers.

This gorgeous Villa with its clean lines, contemporary design and wide open spaces takes full advantage of its remarkable setting as every room is immersed in the breathtaking beauty of the surroundings with scenery pouring in from every angle. The large infinity pool and Jacuzzi Spa invite you in for a swim while soaking in the view of the ocean and the sound of the waves in your very own step up Spa with ergonomic built in seating. A well equipped kitchen offers the discerning chef all that is needed to prepare a romantic evening for two or an exquisite experience for a larger dinner party. Located in an exclusive gated community, available services include security, twice weekly housekeeping service, ground and pool maintenance by our wonderful staff of long-time, trusted employees.

The trip from either San Jose or Liberia airport to our front door is via 100% paved roads.

OUTSTANDING!

  • 5 of 5
Just returned from staying at Casa de Sol, and would say it was even better than was described or what the pictures showed. A fantastic home beautifully decorated and wonderful and relaxing infinity pool! Everyday we would wake up to a fantastic view of the ocean and a dip in the beautiful pool. From the start, talking with the owner Evelyn to working with Bill the onsite manager everything was great! Thanks again to Bill for showing us around town, all of his recommendation were spot on. Don't miss "Paulito's" best beer and bocas in town. Also thanks to Bill for procuring some great wine for us for our stay. The four couples that stayed the week all agreed we could not have found a better place to enjoy the Costa Rican Pacific coast. We all want to return to Casa de Sol and Samara Beach. Thanks again Evelyn and Bill.

OUR VACATION AT CASA DEL SOL IN SAMARA COSTA RICA

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time on our vacation at Casa del Sol in Samara Costa Rica. The house is wonderful. It was meticulously decorated. It was far nicer than I could have expected. Everything was perfect. The weather was awesome and we opened up the house the breeze all day and night. Bill, the property manager, took us in to town to show us the ropes and gave us a great tour. He set us up with some great wine and arranged for a cook and his helper (from a local restaurant) to come to the house and cook us an amazing seafood dinner. At a great price too! It was tough to leave the paradise of the house but we managed to do some deep sea fishing (Richard with Kingfisher), dolphin/snorkeling boat tour, canopy zip line, Tomcar Tour, and visited a couple of great restaurants. The beaches are wonderful here. I really think this was the best vacation I have ever had. I’m already trying to book the house for next year. Maybe two weeks this time.

FIRST CLASS VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
My jaw dropped when our SUV pulled up to this magnificent vacation home! I had never seen a vacation home/hotel look better than was advertised! It was truly the nicest accommodations we have ever experienced. Everything in this home is of the highest quality. I loved the freshness of the home's architecture and design. I loved everything from the comfy furniture to the fluffiest beach towels. I loved being able to keep the doors open day and night. I even slept outside on the hammock one night! The view is the most exquisite part of this piece of heaven. I truly enjoyed waking up each day to the incredible view of the ocean with the infinity pool right before my eyes. Our property manager was wonderful. He even gave us a tour of the town when we arrived!
We enjoyed meeting the staff as well. All our needs were completely met:) Yes! We would definitely come back!

HEAVEN ON EARTH!

  • 5 of 5
My family of four (2 teen daughters) stayed at this glorious house this past August, 2013. My husband told us nothing, it was a "surprise!" After a VERY long day of travel from Texas, we were SO elated when we drove up the private driveway with the property manager. It was WAY beyond what we imagined, what a SPECTACULAR VIEW! It was bigger than what we needed, but we enjoyed being spread out in the beautiful decor inside and outside by the pool. Everyone was so nice, housekeeper, groundskeeper, locals, etc... Costa Rica was nothing like I had heard of, but I think the secret is Samara Beach is the true treasure of C.R. It is a small, but fantastic community with everything you need and not the hustle and bustle of tourists, traffic, lines, etc... All the restaurants were amazing, the shopping was reasonable and unique, and the beach was the most beautiful beach I've ever been to, and I'm from Florida! No need to worry about sharks here, the water was crystal green, perfect waves, palm trees, horses and dogs running around, it was such a "natural" beach. Anyway, back to the incredible casa, I would HIGHLY recommend staying there. Everything is modern, in new condition, and honestly the best thing was opening the massive glass sliding doors and seeing the most gorgeous view of the beach down below, trees, foliage, flowers, etc... Beware the Howler monkeys though, they do not know what sleeping in means. :) We enjoyed the Canopy excursion and horseback trail ride so much too! Highly recommend this beautiful paradise!
