Why deanne sabeck chose Canton of Nicoya
As an artist and yoga practitioner/teacher, I wanted to create a space that was private, serene and beautiful to recharge my creative energies, experience nature in a profound way, and be able to offer this same benefit to others. I found this property which is just a short distance from town and yet very private with gorgeous views of the ocean on one side and the mountains on the other. There is always a nice breeze up on this hill which keeps the house fresh and cool, little need for AC although it is in all of the bedrooms. I worked with an architect to design and build this spectacular house that is modern, very zen in feel and very open. An experience of living in nature in luxury! All of the furniture was designed by me and made specifically for the house. This is the place to have a real Costa Rica experience of being in the beauty, simplicity and serenity of nature.
What makes this Villa unique
The serenity is amazing, the views are magic! The infinity pool invites you to laze or swim laps while you gaze at the ocean. You can literally walk into the pool from both the living room area as well as the master suite. The gourmet kitchen, with lots of amenities, including an ice cream maker, has sliding windows that open up to the mountains so when you are preparing food, you have a wonderful view. The yoga deck on top is the crowning jewel! A 360 degree view of ocean and mountains and sky, nothing else besides lots of monkeys and birds! There are other decks to sun on or relax in the shade. The bedrooms all have private baths with outdoor/indoor showers. Art is everywhere, including the owners light sculptures, architectural glass installations and paintings. The paintings are all for sale and the light sculptures are available for order. There are most often bananas, papayas and mangoes available on the property for your enjoyment.

Samara with 360 views
The place was terrific and well organized. Secluded and private as to provide lots of privacy. The pool was perfect as it was hot but being high up allowed for terrific breeze to run through with all windows are opened. Highly recommend to anyone wishing to stay near Samara with all its terrific restaurants and beach. 10 minute drive into town.
Jewel in the nature, Pura Vida !
The place is fabuleous, we enjoy our stay in this beautiful house... We saw lots of animals such as monkeys, lezards, birds and wounderfull bugs. It was very pleasant stay, but the only one little thing, I have to say, is that the water of the pool was, for the first few days, kind of greenish...but when the person that take care of the pool came, it was perfect.
Thanks to share your place with us !

Thank you for coming back for another stay. Yes when the wind blows a lot of leaves into the pool as was the case when you arrived it turns green until the pool service comes to remedy the situation 😎
This was a beautiful home, pictures do not do it justice! Peace admist the forest!
This property was absolutely beautiful, the views are incredible, and the wildlife does not disappoint. Howler monkeys, parakeets in the trees, gorgeous, tropical flora, a little piece of heaven in tbe hills above Samara. Close enough to town for ease, while getting beauty and peace to come back to! Hope we get to return soon!
Thanks so much for the nice review Jessica, I am so happy you had a great time. I really appreciate your patience with the initial gate situation. Louise told me the whole story! Always an adventure there! I hope you get to come back at some point!
Gem in the jungle!
What a lovely home and setting, nestled in the jungle about 10 minutes drive from Samara Beach. At first, I wasn't certain, not being on the beach, but it was lovely to come home after a day of surfing and do yoga in the yoga shala on the roof, enjoy time with the howler monkeys, and swim in the beautiful pool. The kitchen was perfectly laid out and stocked-we cooked dinner for ourselves and our kids every single night! The outdoor showers were beautiful and an adventure for our kids, who were 16 and 13. You do need to have a good 4x4 SUV-they are not kidding about that in the description. It's also a little difficult to find the first time, so make sure that you have a good communication with Louise (the lovely woman on site who helps to care for the house). Don't trust your GPS to get you there! But once you are there...paradise.
Great things to do while you are in Samara: surfing, trying a veggie burger at Luv Burger, and you have to try the homemade gelato at Casa Maxou.
Thanks so much for your lovely review. I am so thrilled that you had such a great time, as I knew you would. It is such a lovely, peaceful experience there and such fun for kids that age with the pool and the monkeys to entertain you! Hope you can come back soon!
Amazing stay! Beautiful home!
Our stay in this home was unforgettable. Myself, my parents, and my 7 year old son were all completely blown away at the incredible views from this home. We got to see a family of monkeys up close, we loved feeling like we were one with nature, the artwork was wonderful. the pool was great. It is close enough to town/the beach to be convenient but far enough away to have peace and to enjoy the scenery. Louise, the neighbor was incredibly helpful. This property was clean and well maintained. It was very difficult to head home after this trip. We hope to return. Thank you for an incredible vacation.
Thank you for taking the time to leave your lovely review. I am always happy to hear that my guests enjoy their time in my little paradise and especially when they notice the details like my art. my real passion is is give my guests some unique pleasure.
Magical property nestled in nature
This lovely home should not be overlooked. It’s a magical place to stay! The monkeys come through this property almost on a daily basis. The iquanas that you see~the variety of birds! The sounds at night. If you love nature, you should only stay here at Casa Candelitas. The pool is heavenly. I never thought I was a pool person~ but it was amazing to have your own personal pool to cool off in. I swam laps every day. It’s super easy to get into town and enjoy the local farmers for delicious fruits and vegetables. The locally made products as well. The Ticos and Ticas are such kind and happy people. The beach at Samara is beautiful. Restaurants right on the beaches edge- Luv Burger was the best! And Loiuse - Casa Candelitas manager is a wealth of knowledge (if you need some) or tremendously respectful of your privacy. Deanne has a tremendous piece of heaven here and to have the opportunity to actually experience it here and share what she has created ~ hurry up and get there! You cannot beat the roof top deck for yoga and meditation and monkey watching! Kitchen has everything you need. We cooked breakfasts and quite a few dinners. It was well stocked like a well lived in home. Thank you Deanne for sharing your casa of light and heaven. 2 weeks wasn’t even long enough! We will be back.
Thank you so much Donna, I am so glad to know you had such a great time. Your review was so thoughtful, so many details that other guests would find helpful. You are welcome back anytime and I always give discounts to return guests.
yoga and massage are both available in town and as well on the yoga deck on top floor of the house.
