About owner/ property manager

We are a Costa Rican-American family based in San Jose, CR and Kentucky. My father started exploring and investing in the area of Samara & Carrillo over thirty years ago!

owner/ property manager purchased this villa in 2008

Why owner/ property manager chose Guanacaste

Samara is simply one of the safest and prettiest beaches in the country, with its long stretch of of sandy beach, shallow, gentle waters, coral reefs and its very own island in the bay, Isla Chora. The town of Samara is charming, unique and picturesque with a wide variety of restaurants and beach side bars and it is also a thriving fishing and farming community.

There are cowboys and cattle drives, fishing boats returning at sunset, exotic fruit harvests, specialty and organic farming, tree nurseries and reforestation projects. There are unusual plant and animal species, ancient Indian sites, underwater caves and coastal and mountain nature trails.

Guitar, Spanish, yoga, aerobic and dancing lessons and massages are available.

Just south of the popular surfer’s paradise of Samara Beach, Playa Carrillo is one of our favorite spots as one of the least developed most beautiful natural beaches on the Nicoya Peninsula. Framed by mountains, the laid-back fishing village has a white-sand beach just off a palm-lined boulevard with no unsightly beachfront buildings. Known among divers for its excellent coral reef teeming with marine life, the beach is protected by rocky headlands, providing calm, warm water for swimmers.

What makes this villa unique

This gorgeous Villa with its clean lines, contemporary design and wide open spaces takes full advantage of its remarkable setting as every room is immersed in the breathtaking beauty of the surroundings with scenery pouring in from every angle. The large infinity pool and Jacuzzi Spa invite you in for a swim while soaking in the view of the ocean and the sound of the waves in your very own step up Spa with ergonomic built in seating. A well equipped kitchen offers the discerning chef all that is needed to prepare a romantic evening for two or an exquisite experience for a larger dinner party.

An unforgettable family adventure...

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough about our stay...it was an amazing experience for our family of 5! We went to celebrate a 50th birthday and anniversary - even though I had ordered a cake...Bill and Evelyn contacted the bakery and made it their treat! That's just an example for the 5 star service you can expect! The view from the house is something we will all miss everyday...can't even describe it in words but consider yourself one of the very lucky if you get to experience it! The bedrooms are all very large and comfortable and the bathrooms are beautiful! Our favorite area was the back patio and we enjoyed it rain or sunshine! It's the perfect place to relax, swim, take a nap...and also to enjoy all of your meals! Margarita went shopping for us after we discussed the weekly menu and we didn't have to think about meals much after that. I would recommend going out for a few meals. It our family really enjoyed just being at the house and paying Margarita some extra to cook our meals. Bill is there for whatever you need...activity recommendations, shopping excursions, questions, and really whatever you need to make your stay the best it can be! It was wonderful to get to the house and already have wine chilling in the fridge! He even brought is over some lotion to use when my daughter was itching from bug bites...again 5 start service!! It was sad to leave this beautiful Villa and Samara which was already feeling like home...I know we willl be back again!! Thank you Bill, Margarita and Evelyn for everything!! It was all we had hoped for and more!!

Property was perfect - views and accommodations spectacular

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home for our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We had a wonderful time at the home and in the town of Samara. Margarita was a bonus with this home, she if very friendly and easy to work with. The meals that she cooked for us during our stay were all well prepared, and had spectacular flavor. The furnishings in this home are high end and the views are spectacular from every room in the home. Having Bill as the Property Manager made our trip easier to schedule transportation to and from the airport in Liberia and he was very helpful with the excursions we wanted book as a group. Overall, our experience was one of the best we have ever had on a trip. The views from the back outdoor area and pool are some of the best we have ever seen. This is a home we will look to book again in the future.

Thanks,

Rich

Owner's Response: Hi Jennifer! Thank you for your review! We are so pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay! Even if a car is not necessary when staying at the Villa having a vehicle available really enhances the flexibility of your vacation. However it is possible to use our local taxis to get back to/from town. The taxi rate is $4-$5 each way. If you choose to rent a car or SUV (4 wheel drive is not necessary) you can do it in Samara (and we can assist), or you can do it at the airport. Alamo & National have a local office in Samara. We can also arrange shuttle pick up & drop off from the airport. Pura Vida y Muchas gracias!! 😊👍🏻

We would come back here in a heartbeat!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful house! The view was amazing. The infinity pool was amazing. Margarita was amazing! The house is on a hill so the view was great. It was about a half mile walk to the beach. The walk back up the hill could be a little challenging in the heat but it was great exercise & a quick cab ride if we didn't want to walk. We enjoyed being in a gated community. Samara is great. The beach restaurants are great as well. Many to choose from however I think staying at the house & relaxing by the pool and paying Margarita to cook dinner for us were the nights we enjoyed the most! I highly recommend if you are coming to Costa Rica that you consider Samara & staying at this beautiful house!

A Stay in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for allowing us to visit Samara and spend our time in your stunning villa...it was a wonderful!! We travel/vacation several times each year in the Caribbean/Central Americas and have used VRBO multiple times. Villa Costa del Sol would rank at the top of our experiences. From location, surrounding community, appearance, amenities, ease of the experience and the accommodation of our wants this was one of the very best.

Margarita is a most valuable treasure of a person, excellent in her supporting role and superb cook...many would correctly refer to her culinary skills as those of a professional chef.

We all thoroughly enjoyed the ourselves and have discussed returning to the Villa again.
