Overview

Manuel Antonio Villa Rental Photos and Description

Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

Casa Samba is the perfect tropical escape villa. This 5-bedrooms, 5-bathrooms villa was built into a bluff, overlooking the rainforest with vast Pacific Ocean views near Playa Espadilla white sand beach. It is in the exclusive cobble stoned neighborhood on Pacific Canyon Drive, private, but easily accessible to the local markets, restaurants, spas and the Manual Antonio National Park.

THE SPACE

The villa’s multi-level living spaces all open to ocean breezes and tropical gardens with exotic sounds and scents from the local flora and fauna. This is not the typical vacation villa that was hastily built to get a quick flip. The owner actually lived in Casa Samba with his family, sparing no details to make this an original and exquisitely designed Balinese style home. Includes cathedral bamboo open beam ceilings, hand carved stone and glazed earthenware custom sinks, custom stonework and tile, exotic hardwoods and original art from around the world.

THE NEIGHBORHOOD

Pacific Canyon Drive is a private gated neighborhood set-off the main Manuel Antonio road. It is a community built by expats that wanted the comforts of modern luxury living within a tropical beach town. All conveniences and necessities are available by bus, taxi or walking distance.

AMENITIES

- All bedrooms are air-conditioned and have full bathrooms ensuite

- 270-degree view of the Pacific Ocean and Manuel Antonio National Park.

- Ceiling fans throughout the villa

Guestbook comments from the owner

Casa Samba was the perfect house for our family of 11! We enjoyed waking up to "Senor Samba", the resident iguana each morning and coming home in the afternoon to the white-faced monkeys playing on the upstairs porch, often wrestling in the pillows or dipping their arms and legs in the pool!



We loved the views from Casa Samba overlooking Manuel Antonio and the Pacific. Hard to beat! And the proximity to town and the beaches was great too!



Most of all, we loved the help of the staff at Casa Samba. From our concierge, who scheduled all of our tours and excursions and arranged grocery service, to our host and housekeepers, they were all wonderful and accommodating.



This trip was the most memorable we've ever had as a family, we can't say enough about our trip to CR! So many fun, amazing memories were made. We will definitely be back!!

Casa Samba. Outstanding luxury property in Manuel

  • 5 of 5

Great family vacation around fathers 85th birthday. Ten of us were easily accommodated in this spacious beautifully designed home. We arranged for a cook to prepare breakfast and dinner. Hiro the chef received high marks from all of us including my Cordon Blue Paris trained sister and her husband who for over ten years owned a haute cuisine French restaurant on the Monterey Peninsula. Ricky the property manager was always there to provide tour, restaurant and general recommendations. The house was cleaned top to bottom everyday and kept in immaculate condition. I would highly recommend Casa Samba to anyone traveling to Manuel Antonio.

Awesome Trip!

  • 5 of 5

Our trip to Costa Rica was awesome!! We had a great time, our house was amazing and in perfect shape, very clean had beautiful views. It had that tropical feel to it but very luxurious at the same time. The daily visit from the monkeys made it really fun and they DO love bananas. Our concierge Valerie went beyond our expectations and was able to book every tour we wanted and answer all of our questions. We will definitely come back!
