Villa Oasis is located within a five minute walking distance to the

boats, beach, hotels, restaurants and stores. Nestled at the end of a

cul de sac, there is also privacy, affording a very secure feeling,

and no noises from the main two lane, road located 350 meters away..

The Villa has 5 bedrooms, 3 are located in the main house and 2 are located in the apartment. The main bedroom has a King size bed, the second bedroom has a queen size and the third bedroom has two twin beds. The apartment has 2 bedrooms with 2 queen size beds each. Located in the middle of the main house and the apartment their is a very large swimming pool with a waterfall pleasantly gurgling down

the rocks. The two separate buildings have an unobstructed view of a lush, tropical

jungle setting and 3 different balconies to admire the forest.

A well maintained garden area affords ample privacy.

The location is both quiet and private, where the only sounds you hear are the monkeys, birds and bubbling water.

It has a spacious living room and dining area that flows inward from the patio overlooking the jungle and pool to the open kitchen area.

Closed off from this is the family room. Leading off of the family

room are two bedrooms and a bath, and the master bedroom with it’s own

bath, walk in closet and outside private porch. Also situated off the

family room is a large room with its own entrance for storage. The

construction is high end and the total amount of construction is 5500

square feet.

All the ceilings are done with Mahogany wood; the main living area has

a 22 ft ceiling, while the family room boasts 24ft ceilings with

ventilation, creating a very open and spacious atmosphere.

Situated in an area that many consider one of the most prolific marlin

fishing areas in the world, Puerto Carrillo is a small unobtrusive

community that has been playing host to some of the most well renown

sport fishing boats in the world, since its discovery as a billfish

destination over 15 years ago. The small town boasts several hotels,

fine restaurants, stores, a small airstrip with daily service to San

Jose, and one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. The tiny

harbor affords protection to a small handful of charter and private

boats that are here on permanent bases.

The beautiful white sand beach it's popular with swimmers and it's an

ideal beach for your kids.

I was born in San Jose, Costa Rica in 1974, my family is from the Guanacaste area. I was very lucky growing up in both places, the beach and the city. My husband Rick Ruhlow is from Long Beach, California and he came to Costa Rica on vacation to visit his retired parents and while on vacation he fell in love with the country and decided to make it his home as well. We have been in the rental business for the last 13 years to provide lodging services for our Sport-fishing clientele in Playa Carrillo/Playa Samara area. We have a son and a daughter that go to school in San Jose and they both come home on the weekends and spend all their holidays here with us!

We've had the Sportfishing Operation for the last 20 years in Playa Carrillo. Please visit our website of Kingfisher Sportfishing in Playa Carrillo

We love doing yoga at the beach, surfing, fishing, hiking, traveling, playing music, we enjoy good wine, cooking, baking, mountain biking, ocean kayaking.

Rick and Jacqui are the best. They were so kind and hospitable. Very nice, comfortable, clean residence that is close to town but not right in town. Wonderful jungle sounds and privacy. Clean, big pool. Fantastic housekeeper Jessica who works really hard and makes a great breakfast. Great value in our minds. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. We fished with Rick for a day offshore and had a great time with the highlight being able to land a blue marlin in the afternoon. It was so nice to have an English speaking captain who was willing to explain everything that was going on. Would highly recommend staying and fishing with Rick and Jacqui.

Perfect Outdoor Setting

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at Villa Oasis. Jackie (owner) was very helpful and resourceful. The highlight of the property is the outdoor space. Pool, decks, plenty of chairs and spots to eat, read, suntan, etc. Also the wildlife drops by to say hello (monkeys, various birds, lizards). The indoor space is clean and practical. Then again, you are in Costa Rica to get outside, right?! The location is a short walk (<10 mins) to Playa Carillo - an amazing beach. A great base for our break.

Great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

I am not very good at relaxing and turning off work, and this was a fantastic place to do just that. Breakfast every morning was delicious, and relaxing by the pool was perfect. There are some great restaurants in Carrillo and Samara, and after you catch a tuna on Rick's boat, they will make the most fantastic carpaccio for you! Thank you Jacqueline for a wonderful vacation!

Oasis Paradise at Beautiful Playa Carrillo & Samara Beach

  • 5 of 5

Two minute walk from the beautiful white sand beach, this property has a private pool and a private chef. Spacious 5 bedroom luxury vacation home offers close proximity of walking to beach, boats, dining, and groceries. Samara is a 6-minute drive. Amazing accommodation for family or group, as it has an open living room, kitchen, patio, and an additional building that has 2 (queen) bedrooms. We did not require the other building, and Jackie confirmed the whole place would be booked just for our family, as they don't book different families at a time so you do not have to share the swimming pool or yard. The gated property backs onto a natural jungle space of trees, birds, monkeys, and other wildlife. The friendly staff quietly arrives in the a.m. to prepare a full breakfast each day out on the patio. This allowed us to be at our activities on time and ready for a full day. Taxes, daily cleaning, and even laundry is included if you wish. Jacqueline answered all of our questions and gave excellent suggestions for activities, dining, and where to get groceries. We went sport fishing with Kingfisher, which was like a episode of Discovery Channel as we saw hundreds of Spinner Dolphins, and even sea turtles. The crew was friendly and the captain (Rick) stopped by the night before to meet us and prepare us for the next day. Our kids caught tuna and even a 60 lb. Wahoo, which they arranged to have prepared by a friendly and creative chef a few minutes walk from the house. The tuna Carpaccio, and the Wahoo cooked over hardwood were the highlight meals of our trip. We decided pretty quickly that this is a place we would want to return with our larger family, or friends. We highly recommend Villa Oasis and honestly... warning, you may not want to leave the home/ property!
