Multi-level Villa: 5 Bedrooms 6 Baths Sleeps 14 Accommodation Customized

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 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.

                                                                        Susan S.

                                                                        Casa Samba is a beautiful home overlooking Manuel Antonio Park. Valerie, the concierge, was so helpful in planning our trip before we left home. She provided us a list of activities such as river rafting, kayaking through the mangroves and taking a guided walk through the park so we could see animals hidden in the rain forest. She also suggested we might like a chef to cook our dinners, which we loved and arranged pick-up and return at the airport as well as delivery of a rental car right at Casa Samba. Once we arrived the manager, Gary, was also extremely helpful in providing groceries for our first day as well as making suggestions of places to eat and beaches to visit which were not so crowded as we were there during Easter week vacation. The house included daily maid service except for Sundays. The most fun was that every morning these huge lizards would come on our deck to sun themselves and in the late afternoon the monkeys would be on our deck and roof providing wonderful entertainment for all of us. We would definitely return to Casa Samba. We felt very well taken care of.

                                                                        Susan Stewart


                                                                        Glenna B.-

                                                                        I can’t imagine anywhere with a better view. The house is amazing and the layout perfect for larger group. We needed five bedrooms and each bedroom is uniquely different with it’s own space for privacy. The pool, the patio and the game room were great for gathering and visiting. We ended our trip with dinner prepared by Chef Junior. The meal was fantastic, a great way to end our stay at Casa Samba. We would highly recommend this place for anyone coming to Costa Rica.

                                                                        Gary and Valerie where very helpful with our planning and stay.

                                                                        Excellent property and service

                                                                        Nina Z.

                                                                        Casa Samba was an excellent home for our big group. We were five couples with three small children but still had our privacy around the house. The view from the deck is stunning. The cleaning and chef services are excellent as well.

                                                                        Beautiful house surrounded by beautiful nature

                                                                        Heather P.

                                                                        This house was absolutely stunning! My husband and I planned our family (8 people!) trip to Costa Rica and surprised everyone along the way. This was by far my whole family's favorite place we stayed in all of Costa Rica. Not only was it right by the Manuel Antonio National Park, we felt like we were directly IN the park! The amount of monkeys (squirrel, howler, capuchin,) the greeted us on the deck was such an incredible experience. We ranged in age from my parents in their 50s all the to my sisters in their early 20s. The pool right off of the kitchen was a favorite place to cool off. Most of us jumped straight from the kitchen into the pool. There was more than enough space for the 8 of us. Each couple ended up having an entire floor to themselves. The view from every floor was spectacular. we loved ending the nights with a game or two on the pool table. Kim our host was great! Tony the house keeper was fantastic. It was always perfectly clean. Chef Junior did Father's Day dinner for us while we there and it was definitely another highlight! Food was delicious!! There was no hot tub like originally advertised in the house (apparently they had to take it out because of the monkeys) but we didn't miss it! Overall this house was more than we imagined and a huge hit with the family. We've been recommending it to everyone we talk to.Thank you everyone for making it so special for us!

                                                                        Excellent house with a stunning view

                                                                        Patricia T.Uruguay

                                                                        Owner's Response:

Kim and Junior make a great team and thanks for letting us know they made your stay a memorable one. We appreciate your recommendation and hope to see you back with us soon! Pura Vida!

                                                                        Gabriel d.

                                                                        I can still remember the first time we discovered the Casa Samba. The stunning view, the beautiful rooms or the swimming pool were something I had not seen anywhere before, ever.

                                                                        We stayed 4 nights in the house and took the time to enjoy every piece of it. It is conveniently located close to the Manuel Antonio park and close to Quepos. We chose to not go for the chef service, the spacious and well furnished kitchen made it a real pleasure to cook our own meals (with fruits and vegetables from the farmer's market in Quepos :)).

                                                                        I would highly recommand anyone visiting Manuel Antonio, with some time to stay in the area, to stay in the Casa Samba.

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.
