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.

Please note that this website no longer shows our contact information. If you want to find that information you can search the internet for HappyCostaRica and find our personal website.

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. Note, if you want to rent this house you can also find it on this same website.

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 Sámara

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.

Very comfortable and well stocked. The pool was fantastic and the beach was super accessible. We recommend heading down to the beach and asking for Chico. He is a local fisherman. We bought some awesome fresh catch and also arranged for him to take 6 of us out fishing. It was a super authentic and fantastic experience. He provided life jackets and everyone brought home fish! Property felt very safe and the local town was great!

This is fantastic house for four couples, or extended family and kids. I am so glad Paul agreed to add bikes as this is perfect location to bike to Carrillo beach, or into Samara which we did most days during our month long stay. The house is very clean and watching the maid Roxie and friend or daughter clean today for turn around for next guests we see the deep cleaning they do for new arrivals in addition to weekday cleaning. Roxie is so sweet trading pics of grandkids and our granddaughter followed and hugged her for entire week! The bus is quite convenient and taxis are about $6 (better to pay 3000 colones) tho many drivers need to employ your fledging Spanish. Samara is nice long walk but better to plan in cooler part of day and lower tide. Great grocery stores including one that delivers! We enjoy chilling by or in pool, dips in ocean, cooking or enjoying local Tico restaurants (there are several upscale ones nearby too if that is your preference). What a joy and owner Paul and Samara rentals managers are very responsive for the inevitable little issues that crop up (pump on water tank replaced within day) etc. Best, quiet, large, wonderful rental home and we have rented all over the world so have many to compare to!


                                                                  Paul V.-

                                                                  I can't say enough about how great this area is. If you want to really experience a country (instead of hiding behind a gated all inclusive) - then Samara is a perfect place to visit. The house is right between Samara and Carrillo Beaches (both are fantastic) and is great as well. The lot is full of fruit trees and flowers The pictures don't do it justice. We will be back.

                                                                  Stephen A.

                                                                  This property lives up to the billing of "Luxury by the Beach". A large well appointed house within walking distance to a couple of great beaches. A fully loaded kitchen and a BBQ make meals at home an easy option. The grounds of the property are teeming with fruit bearing trees, flowering plants and animal life. You'll be tempted just to stay on the property so you can soak in the diverse things to see while sitting around the pool. There are two bike and two kayaks available to facilitate exploring beyond the house. The property owner Paul is prompt in his response time and easy to deal with. The property managers are located in the town site of Samara and are readily available to answer questions or help with any issues or concerns you may have. The folks who maintain the gardens and pool are there regularly but don't interfere with your visit. The cleaner, Roxana, is simply amazing. Paul and his team make you feel like this is your house!
