Samara Reefs Paradise: Ocean Views from all Bedrooms, Gourmet Kitchen

Casa Colibri was designed with comfort, elegance, and entertaining in mind. Located in the luxurious gated community of Samara Reefs, Casa Colibri has 5 bedrooms, each with stunning panoramic ocean views, a super-modern, bright gourmet kitchen, a 40-foot private saltwater swimming pool, an elegant outdoor dining room, and an over-the-top covered outdoor barbecue/kitchen area. Elevated on a ridge overlooking the beautifully curved bay, the house is surrounded by sweeping, green jungle canopies. The architecture of Casa Colibri maximizes gorgeous views from every angle -you can enjoy 360-degree ocean views, seeing jaw-droppingly beautiful sunrises to the east AND sunsets to the west. What sets this house apart from other luxury houses in the region is its proximity to the beach. It is an easy 10-minute walk to the beach-front and another 7 minutes into the town-center.

At over 5,000 sq. ft., Casa Colibri is one of the largest homes in Samara Reefs. Built by Architect Karin Nagel, and designed by Julietta Jurado, the house is elegant but extremely functional; the windows and doors are of the highest quality to ensure comfort. The house has a very tropical feel, with natural materials found in every aspect of the house. From its circular staircase -with its wrought iron palm-tree leaf design - to the beautiful hardwood kitchen cabinets, to the spectacular carved doors found in every room, each and every element in the house was beautifully crafted. Casa Colibri is extremely relaxing. Returning to this luxurious elegant villa is "paradise" after a long day at the beach or out on an exciting jungle tour. Throughout the house, the soft colors and natural materials create a comfortable, relaxed feeling, while over-the-top WOW architectural features - such as its 30-foot vaulted ceilings and its ocean-front floor-to-ceiling windows - make this house very unique and very special. One of its best design features of the house is how the rooms flow seamlessly from one to another. It has great flow! Double-wide glass doors off the living room open up, connecting all the main rooms: the kitchen, dining room, and living room, the pool, the pooldeck, and the barbecue area.

The house is perfect for 2 families, 3 couples, or 1 large extended family. There are two master bedrooms, each with en-suite bathrooms: one upstairs and one downstairs. The gourmet kitchen is wonderfully designed. It has windows on all sides, has a huge center island, it's fully outfitted, and its design and contents would meet (or exceed) even a high-end chef's expectations. It is bright and inviting, has a large kitchen island with a European-imported 6-burner gas stove, two full length Italian granite countertops, a 4-person sit-up bar, and all stainless steel appliances. A unique feature is the large walk-in pantry adjacent to the kitchen. The room is air-conditioned and humidity-controlled and was designed to store wine, beer, bread, fruit, and dry goods. Another unique feature is the pass-through counter off the kitchen window - perfect for handing serving platters out to the barbecue chef. Off the kitchen are glass patio doors which open on to the dining room beside it. Opposite this sliding glass door is another window,: perfect for allowing refreshing cross-breezes to keep the kitchen cool and comfortable. Enjoy a beautiful garden view. The garden runs parallel along the side of the house, is often visited by birds, and it is planted with herbs, guaranteeing a fresh supply of oregano and basil.

There are many good sitting areas to expore in the house so no one will be bumping into each other. There is an office with an executive desk locaed next to the master bedroom - it is the perfect area to park your computer and have a quiet spot to catch up on emails. If someone wants to watch TV without disturbing others, there is a separate air-conditioned media room; it has patio doors that open outside onto a shaded fountain area.

Another great spot is the "sunset deck". This was built so we could enjoy the views of the surrounding back hillside and to get the best view of the sunset . It is also a great spot for enjoying wine and appetizers or to do yoga in a quiet spot during the day. It's also a great spot for watch troops of monkeys swinging in the trees below.

Located off the upper master bedoorm is a huge sundeck. Both the bedroom and the office open onto this deck - it runs half the length of the second story and gives you a spectacular view of the entire Samara Bay. In the morning, the sundeck is very welcoming. It feels peaceful and intimate and is the perfect spot to enjoy morning coffee. The comfy chairs are perfect for relaxing in while enjoying watching the sunrise and the pastel colors of the sky change before your very eyes. It's great to awaken to the sounds of songbirds, monkeys, and the gentle ocean surf and to feel the energy of the beautiful jungle setting, the flocks of parakeets, the movements of butterflies, watching hummingbirds (colibris) dart about the trees below. In front of you is a green forest of trees and just beyond that, Samara Beach. The island in front is Isla Chora - the view Samara is famous for.

When the sun goes down, the temperature is still wonderful (no need to pack a sweater). The barbecue, located at the edge of the sundeck overlooking the jungle canopy, is so perfect that it has inspired the phrase "barbecue envy" from recent guests.

Looking out on the opposite end of the house, beside the lower master bedroom suite, is a curved teak deck where you can stand and look west (for great sunsets) or down overtop a waterfall feature, the centerpiece of Samara Reefs. Turned on each day for a few hours, the water meanders along a rocky "river," collects into 5 or 6 pools, and then cascades over the edge into a shallow circular "jungle pool" below. Modeled after the waterfall at Tabacon Resort and Spa in Arenal, we have duplicated the effect of sitting on a rocky ledge beneath the waterfall so that the water falls with great force down onto your head and shoulders. The effect is both exhilarating and ultra-relaxing. During the hottest hours of the day, visit the cool shady grotto behind the waterfall. This is guaranteed to cool you down. This is one of several private corners in and around Casa Colibri, all of which are truly delightful.

The house is designed to allow cross-breezes to flow through the house – wonderful ocean breezes flow in off the water and cool mountain air streams through the front door, keeping the interiors cool and fresh. Whether you are inside the house, or out, you will find yourself utterly captivated by the stunningly beautiful panoramic ocean views, the long shoreline of Samara beach, the small island of Isla Chora, and the protective reefs that appear and disappear with the tide. Screened windows from each room give you a bird's eye view into the surrounding hillsides where you can watch flocks of parakeets, families of monkeys swinging through the trees, kayakers heading to Isla Chora, or fishing boats headed out to sea.

The upstairs master bedroom is very spacious, taking up 1/3 of the top floor. It has a king-size bed, solid almond floors, remote control air-conditioning, a Tommy Bahamas ceiling fan, reading lamps, tons of storage and closet space, a very large en-suite bathroom, super-modern frosted glass doors, a tiny balcony overlooking the front of the house, and a large ocean-front sundeck with comfy deck furniture. From your bed, just open up the sliding glass doors and enjoy huge panoramic ocean views.

The master bedroom en-suite bathroom is very large and has 3 windows from which you can enjoy 3 very different, very beautiful views. The large vanity has two beautiful sinks made of carved natural rock, Kohler faucets, a large glassed-in stone shower with a window that opens up and looks out onto the garden, and a full soaker bath tub which looks out into the green hillside beyond. A large portion of the hillside to the northwest is owned by WingNuts Canopy Tours and has been ecologically preserved. What you see is not unlike the densely forested areas in regions that are much more remote than Samara. It truly is a magnificent setting.

Unlike many of the other view-homes in developments near Samara, Casa Colibri is an easy 10-minute walk to the beach. And a 15-minute walk to the town-center of Samara. The walk is not strenuous at all; just walk down our paved road for about 600 meters, cross the street, and then walk 100 meters along a wide, shaded path, and you are at the entrance to the beach! Walk west for another few minutes and you will be at the center of town, close to Restaurant Locanda, Vela Latina, Lo Que Hay, Gusto Beach, the truly wonderful Samara Info Center, several grocery stores, surf shops, two banks, and a variety of good bakeries and coffee shops.

If Casa Colibri is booked for your dates, please have a look at our neighbouring property, Villa Mirador vrbo 393786, Casa Estiyul vbro 553084 or ask about our other partners’ houses (unlisted): Casa Centenario, Villa de las Brisas, or Driftwood House. Also check out Hacienda Punta Indio vrbo 395744, our group's original beach house on 60 private acres nearby.

About Mary-Ellen Meyers, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Our group of Canadian partners began building the 7 Samara Reefs beach houses in 2006 . Our partners - who live mostly in Vancouver and Toronto - love the warmth of Samar and its tropical sunshine over the cold and rainy Canadian winters. When we ourselves cannot be in Samara, we very much enjoy sharing our piece of paradise with others.

If Casa Colibri is not available for your dates, check out Villa Mirador (vrbo 393786) which is 2 houses away, or ask Mary-Ellen about the availability of two other Samara Reefs houses - Casa Centenario or Driftwood House. Also, check out Casa Estiyul (vrbo 553084), our partner's house on the hillside just below Samara Reefs. Pura Vida!

Mary-Ellen Meyers, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada purchased this house in 2008

Why Mary-Ellen Meyers, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada chose Guanacaste

Samara Reefs is THE perfect location. Not only does it have gorgeous panoramic ocean views, but it is within easy walking distance to Samara Beach and a pleasant walk into the town-center of Samara. Also, it is only a 5 minute drive to a second beach called Playa Carrillo, considered by many (including the Lonely Planet) to be a jewel of Costa Rica: one of the country's most beautiful and unspoiled beaches. These 2 beaches are some of the safest swimming beaches in the country and both win awards for outstanding cleanliness standards. For body surfing and boogie boarding, we prefer Carrillo. For people-watching and surfing, Samara is awesome. The town of Samara is wonderful: very friendly, relaxed, and even though it is small, it has a surprising number of great restaurants! And there is a huge variety of activities available - it is truly the perfect fit for a family vacation. The locals (who call themselves Ticos) are very friendly, positive, and happy people. .

Besides being close to the beaches and to town, and besides its outstanding panoramic ocean views, its unique position 150 feet up on an elevated ridge gives it fresh tropical breezes! Samara Reefs is a very special location, possibly surpassing all other developments of its type on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica.

What makes this house unique

The infinity-edge pool is 40 feet long and, because it is a salt-water pool, there is no detectable chlorine smell. This makes it so enjoyable!

A feature in the Samara Reefs is a huge waterfall feature which is absolutely incredible! You can sit under the cascading waterfall and get a wonderfully invigorating shoulder massage! Or, if it is a particularly hot day, you can hang out in the underground grotto behind the waterfall. This is a wonderful spot to cool off and take in the incredible view.

A HUGE benefit of Casa Colibri is its wonderful caretakers. If you need assistance or help with the house, our Administrator, Daniel Quiros, and his wife Anna live across the street in their nearby casita. They are extremely helpful and will do everything they can to make your vacation even more enjoyable. Daniel has been called a God-send many times, once for tracking down a guests' lost luggage, another time for changing a guest's flat tire, and another for supplying a guest with fresh fish. Our guests love Anna and her delicious cooking. Guests rave about her ceviche and was called a godsend when she babysat their children so they could have a break.

At Villa Mirador, you experience the magical feeling of sitting at the edge of the JUNGLE. Each time you look out your bathroom window at the canopied hillside behind, you see a large acreage (owned by WingNuts Canopy Tours). WingNuts has preserved this natural habitat for wildlife; it is home to many species of animals (foxes, coatee, wild cats). You will see monkeys from the rooftop deck. You can observe monkeys swinging from tree to tree, see (and hear) flocks of parakeets coming home to roost, and enjoy the sounds of cicadas in the evening. Absolutely paradise.

The beach, Playa Carrillo, is Costa Rica's national jewel - palm-lined, pristine and completely untouched by development. The Lonely Planet calls it THE PRETTIEST, MOST UNSPOILED BEACH IN ALL OF COSTA RIC

Absolutely Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

This has to be one of the nicest vacation homes we have ever stayed at. Exceeded our expectations, photos simply don't don't do it justice.

This is the 4th vacation home that my wife and I have been involved with renting in 4 years. We noted that, unlike some other places where we have vacationed, Samara was the first location where we felt perfectly safe among the locals. Very friendly people with an overall laid back surfer vibe.

We were a party of 6 people (3 couples), none of which had vacationed in Costa Rica before. We were there from March 2 thru 9 2016. We were not disappointed. From start to finish, this was a great vacation.

This house is fantastic. All the bedrooms have a great view. Master bedroom has its own balcony. The house is huge and the open concept made it feel even bigger. Not once did anyone feel that they were in each other's way or tripping over each other. The professionally designed kitchen is awesome. It is well equipped with whatever one might need for cooking/entertaining and was often a focal point for all 6 of us while meals were being prepared.

Hint - The huge air conditioned walk-in pantry keeps wine at a perfect temperature.

Mary-Ellen was quick with her responses and was helpful with every aspect of the trip. No question went unanswered so we had a high degree of confidence of what to expect even before we arrived. While staying at Casa Colibri, Brenda at the info center was our number one go to person for activities, shuttles, etc. Her knowledge on just about everything in and around Samara (and beyond) is truly amazing.

It is very hot in Costa Rica. Our group found that early morning beach walks were best, before the sun became too intense. We also discovered that between 1:00 PM and 4:00 PM, it was best to be at the house (just too hot in town ..... unless of course you're at a beach side pub!) enjoying the infinity pool or indulging in a siesta. After 5:00 PM, we would head into town to grocery shop, hunt for souvenirs or visit one of the many beach bars or restaurants.

We did not bother with a rental car. The beach was a short 10 minute walk and the center of town just a few minutes further. If we over indulged while in town or had groceries to bring back to the house or just too tired to walk, taxis were always available.... $5 takes you right to Casa Colibri's front door.

Of all the vacation homes we've had the pleasure of staying at, this is the one place we would not hesitate to return to.

If your looking for a first class home with a breathtaking view and pool, this is your place. We had iguanas suning by the pool everyday thousands of parrots flying in yard along with a steady stream of butterflies passing over the pool all day long Each morning we would go out front to watch the monkeys passing by in the trees you have truly built a paradise in a paradise. Thank you so much for sharing this place with us. I would also like to thank Daniel he is truly a gem sincerely Larry

SPECTACULAR VIEWS!

  • 5 of 5

This house is incredible. This was our first trip to Costa Rica and we are already planning our next visit. The views from this home are beyond description. The photos don't do it justice. All the bedrooms have a view so everyone will be happy with their room. There is plenty of privacy in each area of the home so it is perfect for several couples or families. This was a family vacation for us and we often were going in different directions but this home made a great gathering spot. A couple people from our group rarely left the home, it was so comfortable and the house has such a nice open concept. The pool is perfect for lounging. The kitchen is perfect for cooking as a group and the grill is great for all the fresh food in the area. Samara is a relaxed and fun place to visit. It was exactly what we were looking for in a vacation destination. Beautiful beaches, casual restaurants and really nice people. Brenda at the info center is a great resource for activities, car rentals, shuttles, etc. Mary-Ellen was amazing. She was so quick with her responses and was helpful with every aspect of the trip. This was a vacation our family will never forget.

AMAZING!!! GREAT VACATION HOUSE & TOWN WITH LOTS TO DO !!!

  • 5 of 5

This house is fabulous .... open concept with loads of room for the whole family.

Our family of 5 has rented many different upscale vacation rentals over the years and this without question was our favorite by far... The views of the ocean from every room are amazing, we woke up early every morning to listen and watch the families of howler monkeys around the neighborhood and we really enjoyed all the different wildlife and nature this region of the world has to offer.

Mary-Ellen and Shane were great to deal with ... lots of communication prior to, during and after the trip to answer all of questions and provide us with beneficial insight and information about the house, the gated community and the region around it.

Thanks Mary-Ellen and Shane .... this was our family's favorite vacation :-)

Cheers

Dale

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

We just love Costa Rica, this was our second time to visit. To start Samara, is breath taking, from the people, the gated community, the food, the monkeys, birds, the accommodations, the house, and the town itself. You will not go wrong with this beautiful home. The beds were comfortable, the showers were wonderful, the layout made it perfect for hanging by the pool, cooking or just plan relaxing. We had 9 people and the home had more than enough space. Daniel was the house monitor and was available for anything we needed. The gated community made you feel secure and was a perfect location weather you want to fish, go to the beach or walk the town. The views are stunning. This home was perfect for our week of paradise. Truly, everything you need. I do recommend a rental car. This is truly a wonderful vacation spot, don't miss out!

Over the top fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

So you are not a millionaire. 6 or 8 of you can afford to live like one for a week or 2 :)

We were 3 couples 50ish. This place is spectacular! We may have set the bar too high for our next trip. The house is incredibly well stocked and supplied. Every time we looked for anything, there it was. I wish my kitchen was that well set up. There is no complaining about who got which room, they all had great views and with only 3 couples it was like we each had our own wing. I now have BBQ envy.

I can't comment on the living room or media room as I don't think any of us even sat in them. This place is all about outdoor living and entertaining. the view is really over the top. We had Howler monkeys come right up on the deck while we were all out there, iguanas visiting daily and fantastic bird watching off the deck. My favorite was the giant Costa Rican Grasshopper. Might not be everyone's cup of tea but I got a kick out of them banging into things.

Mary-Ellen was fantastic to deal with and extremely informative.

Daniel and Anna were great, always ready to help. Don't worry if he can't figure out what you are saying, he'll just call someone to translate.

Samara was perfect for us. Beautiful walk down to the beach and along the beach into town. Great vibe and a surprising number of really good restaurants. Still has a bit of the village feel so there's no doubt you are in Costa Rican town.

If you walk back to the house, make sure you take the beach over to the road to the house. Do not take the main road...trust me on this. Just after you get off the beach, stop at the fish market and get yourself something to grill.

We were saving the top restaurant recommended (by Mary-Ellen & everyone else in town) Casa Esmirelda for our last night but we liked the house so much we decided to BBQ seafood at home.

Only 5 minutes away are two of Costa Rica's very best beaches: Samara and Carrillo. There you will find perfect waves for body surfing, boogie boarding, and the chest-high water in Samara is great for beginner and intermediate surfers. There are 3 surf schools in Samara: Pato's, C&C Surfing, and Chillasana Surf & Yoga. "Professional" waves are at a 3rd beach, just 30 minutes away. You can rent boogie boards for $2/hour, rent bicycles, ride horses on the beach, rent ATV's, kayak through slow-flowing rivers or go ocean-kayaking to the nearby island of Isla Chora, or go diving or deep-sea fishing. Casa Colibri is just 10 minutes away from world-class zip-lining operated by the fabulous guides at WingNuts. We recommend taking a guided hike through "Samara Trails" with Alvarro, and going ocean-kayaking to the tiny island of Isla Chora. Or go stand-up paddle boarding (during the day or by moonlight) with Chillasana. Kayak slowly through wide rivers, observing the natural jungle off the beaten path. Go snorkeling or diving and see a huge variety of sea life, including colourful fish, turtles, and even lobster. If flying in a gyrocopter is on your bucket list, then the Flying Crocodile pilots are the perfect guides and now is the perfect time! If exploring some National Parks is on your list, Samara is close to 3 of them. Barra Honda, Playa Ostional. and Palo Verde River.

Samara and Carrillo are known for having spectacular deep-sea fishing. (home to the President's Cup Championship). You can either go deep-sea fishing for sailfish or marlin or charter a smaller boat and catch tuna and dorado for dinner. Or go sightseeing: see dolphins do their fabulous tricks in their natural habitat. Guaranteed, you will not run out of thrilling and thoroughly enjoyable activities, spectacular sights, and memories that will last a lifetime.
