Sámara House Rental Photos and Description

Houses (4 Bedroom with pool, 2 Bedroom - see description), (Sleeps 10 + 4)

Casa Pacifica (4 bedrooms, up to 10 people) WITH POOL

& Casita Pacifica (2 bedrooms, up to 4 people) NO POOL

- 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 entrance, driveway, terrace 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.

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 Guanacaste

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.

Best Vacation EVER!!

  • 5 of 5

I am hesitant to write this review because it is a gem and I want to be able to rent it in the future but if you want to have the most wonderful holiday you need to stay at Casa Pacifica. Located between two of the most glorious and different beaches in Costa Rica minutes away walking. Just amazing. The house is over the top, providing everything you need. Pool was amazing and the outdoor shower too. The beds were SO comfortable. The kayaks were super fun to have, we paddled out to Isla Chora with turtles all around, the hermit crabs on the Isla were wonderful as well. Howler Monkeys, lizards, crabs, butterflies, flowers, crocodiles and so many birds. Doesn't get any better. Samara is a special place. We enjoyed coconut water from fresh coconuts everyday, the restaurants were yummy and the people beyond lovely. Pura vida. Pura vida. As mentioned in a previous review EVERYONE associated with this glorious home was so helpful, kind and friendly. I hope you get a chance to enjoy what we did, we can't wait to return.

The perfect place in the perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

My family of 4 (2 kids, 11 & 8) and my parents are so glad we booked Casa Pacifica for the last week of our Costa Rican adventure. The house and property were stunning. It had everything we needed for our stay near the beach. The pool was a refreshing welcome from the mid afternoon heat and the use of the kayaks allowed us to get out early in the morning, view turtles and get to Isla Chora. Everyone associated with the property were friendly and helpful. The house had all we needed and more and felt like home by the end of our stay. We cooked, ate meals and played games in the kitchen/dining room. We BBQ’d chicken on the big BBQ just out on the main patio. We relaxed on the patio while drinking margaritas. Just down the road where the fishermen come in we were able to purchase a lb of shrimp and they also had lots of fresh fish. Samara itself is a great spot with lots of restaurants and stores. We refreshed our surfing at Choco’s surf school in Samara. Just a short walk/drive from the house is Playa Carrillo which was great for hanging out, swimming and watching the sunset. We will definitely return and tell others about this property. Highly recommended for families.

Girl's trip

The house had everything we needed. It was beautiful and equipped with all we needed and was also private. It was close proximity to 2 beaches. There were various restaurants and shops in Samara for anything one might need. We had a fabulous time and the property mgmt company made sure we were completely satisfied. Would absolutely stay there again.

Beautiful spot with everything we needed for our two families. The owners went above and beyond to make sure we were accommodated in every way possible. We overlapped with them when we arrived to Samara.

The house is absolutely lovely and perfect for families with kids. Everyone in Samara and associated with the house was incredibly friendly and helpful. We felt safe and comfortable the entire time.

Spectacular Home in a wonderful part of Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this place. The people were wonderful and the house was awesome. would definately recommend this house. Very luxurious, great pool and a huge kitchen and common area. We had three couples in the house and there was tons of space left over. Basically a mansion! Samara itself is a great little town and it was hugely helpful to have the property manager giving us a detailed rundown of the area. Bonus was the football, kayaks and other watersport equipment on-site - we had a great paddle out to the island leaving right from the front door. Loved it!
