About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms

Supremely situated amid 3 acres of private jungle in a remote area of Costa Rica's lush Nicoya Peninsula, Casa la Palma de Samara is a tropical retreat unlike any other. The villa is nestled on a hilltop overlooking the Pacific Ocean. With secluded white-sand beaches in a short distance, and the sights and sounds of the jungle envelop the estate.

Wake up in the master bedroom with a breathtaking view at the tropical garden, the private pool area and the Pacific Ocean.

The house is equipped with large windows and allows unique views from every room.

Casa la Palma de Samara’s open floor design of the living room integrates the kitchen and dining area and also allows for easy access to the outdoor area.

Through large patio doors terrace and pool area is accessible from living room and master bedroom.

The location on top of a hill with natural airflow keeps the temperature inside the house comfortable most of the time. Individually controlled air conditioning in each of the two bedrooms is available.

You will have free access to complimentary local telephone, Wi-Fi broadband internet as well as Satellite TV with over 200 channels of audio and video entertainment.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all standard appliances - including ice maker, blender, and a coffee maker essential for enjoying Costa Rica's fabulous fresh fruit and excellent coffee.

Sun-drenched and pristine, the Nicoya Peninsula lies among Costa Ricas's northern Pacific coast. The region is known for its dazzling white-sand beaches and untouched tropical splendor. Rarely marked on maps, Playa Barrigona and Playa Buenavista are such a heaven of solitude and serenity that olive ridley sea turtles travel thousands of miles across the Pacific each year to lay their eggs on these beaches.

The nearby villages of Samara and Nosara offer quaint restaurants and shops, but peace and quiet are the hallmarks of this stunning estate.

'The reality surpasses the expectations of our dreams by far ...'

Casa la Palma: Private home with pool, ocean views, romantic hideaway
average rating of 4.6363635 based on 11 reviews

private, beautiful views, ideal for young kids

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our month long stay at the beautiful Casa la Palma. The grounds and view are stunning and we spent a great deal of time splashing around in the pool with our two year old. If you're looking for privacy and an opportunity to unwind then consider spending some time here. The property manager Axel, his team of gardeners and house cleaner Sondra couldn't have been more accommodating and friendly. If you can, ask Axel to arrange a day of fishing while you're there. My husband did and had an amazing time. You're 5 minutes away form the exquisite beach Playa Barrigona as well as 10 min from Samara where you'll find many good restaurants and grocery stores. Also, check out Playa Guiones (30 min away) for it's surfing and yoga. While the house could use a little TLC ( the weather conditions in Costa Rica are extreme so this is to be expected) we wouldn't hesitate to come back to Casa la Palma to spend another holiday.

A great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four enjoyed spending our vacation at the house. The property manager Axel was super friendly, resourceful and responsive to any enquirers. The house was clean and very well maintained with all the amendments available for a comfortable stay. It is in a middle of jungles with a great view and amazing wild live all around. An unforgettable experience for us and particularly children.

Great property, will stay again

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the property, it was as described and Axel was an awesome host. Our water went out and Axel was there within minutes diagnosing and correcting the problem. It was clean and well maintained. We had to make a few slight adjustments to our stay and the owner was very helpful and accommodating. I would recommend this property to my friends and family. When in town make sure to get tacos on the beach at Lo Que Hay

A place to hide away from your busy life

  • 4 of 5

Everything you need to enjoy living on the top of a mountain is available at Casa la Palma. Two couples fit comfortably in this two bedroom, 2 bathroom house. The jungle is at your fingertips and bird watching is right there at your doorstep. Thank you to Axel for the care and attention you gave us during our stay.

Indeed a charming place

  • 3 of 5

It is a great house, very comfortable and the landscaping and pool are beautiful. I do not understand why it has no screens on the sliding glass doors to the patio or why the house had no blinds on any window. We were told that we would have internet access, but we never did and no call backs from the three people we called about it. We were also told there was a grounds keeper that would stop in every day. We never saw him. And a housekeeper, never saw her either. It was a fun and beautiful trip (we have been to Costa Rica four times) but very challenging. We have used VRBO for years with maybe a few glitches, but this was not up to standard.

Owner's Response: We are very happy that you liked the house and the beautiful landscape. Our aim is to create a harmonious relationship between house and surrounding landscape. Blinds at the large windows would disturb the harmony. We deeply regret that you had no internet access during your stay. Our housekeeper Axel returned from his journey last week. He noticed that the telephone cord was destroyed by the thunderstorms of the past weeks. This cord will be repaired within the next few days.
