Villa, 5 Bedrooms, 6 Baths, (Sleeps 12)
Casa Samba is the perfect tropical escape villa. This 5-bedrooms, 6-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 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.
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.

Amazing Family Home!
We just returned from an amazing stay at Casa Samba. This is a beautiful and well decorated home. Note: this is a very vertical property and there are several spiral staircases. This property might not be ideal for those with mobility issues or very young children. But, we loved it for our school-age children (who enjoyed their own 2 bedroom "apartment" accessed from the deck of the main house) and it would be great with teenagers. We worried about the size of the pool (which is deep but not full size), but it worked even with 8 people in it. The deck area has both sun and shade; we spent a lot of time there and the view is AMAZING. The service here is SPECTACULAR. All of the excursions we selected were terrific-- pick-ups were on time; staff were professional and informed; they were great with kids; everyone spoke English very well. Ask for Manuel as your guide for the national park tours! Our favorite perk was Chef Junior. He is so friendly and accommodating and gentle, in addition to being a great chef. The food was very fresh; we tried different juices every day; Junior appeased our picky eaters. It was such a pleasure to have his meals after a long and hot day of excursions. Finally, this house is very well located--a short drive to the national park and main beach, as well as to Playa Biesanz (which is smaller and nice for families); also a short walk to grocery store, ATM, and souvenir shops, as well as to El Avion restaurant, which kids will enjoy.
Escape Villas appreciates your fantastic review of Casa Samba and we are so glad you had a great stay in Manuel Antonio. The villa location is perfect for families, not too far from everything the area has to offer and set in the rain forest with a great ocean view. Our staff thanks you for the kind words about the service you were provided and Chef Junior in particular. He is a shining star when it comes to chefs and we are glad you enjoyed his meals and his great personality. Please come back for another visit, we would love to see you again!
Casa Samba. Outstanding luxury property in Manuel
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.
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!

Rates & Availability
Additional information about rental rates
Ask us about our lower 4 bedroom rates for smaller groups. Always private to just your group. Christmas and New Years weeks are 5 bedrooms only. Rates include all local taxes. If you have to cancel we can refund your deposit minus a $300 processing fee so long as we are able to re-rent the dates for the same amount of original reservation. The longer we have to do this the greater chance you have of getting a refund. You can also choose to have us hold your deposit towards future dates within 18 months of the dates on the original reservation. This will not incur the processing fee like the refund policy but we must be notified at least 4 months prior to the reservation dates to be able to give you full credit. If you cancel within 4 months of the reserved dates re-renting for a possible refund is the only recourse.
