* * CASA MICHELE IS NOW CASA LUNA DEL SOL* *
Our completely renovated private villa is set in our hilltop private community in a lush, tropical setting with *stunning* jungle views. A beautiful retreat for couples, families & friends! Set in a quiet, private and secure hilltop environment, yet just minutes away to all amenities and 2 beaches.
Set in a private hilltop development of only 12 exclusive villas (Proyecto Loma Verde), Casa Michèle is truly exclusive, yet so close to the beautiful town and beaches of Samara.
- Playa Buenavista is a short 9-min walk just down the hill from the Villa. It's a long and gorgeous uninhabited beach sought by surfers for it's remarkable waves. Beautiful sunsets are just steps away!
- Playa Samara is very close by: 1,4 miles (2,3km) (a 5-minute drive, or 25-minute walk). It's a beautiful beach to spend the day at: restaurants set on the beach w/ wifi, long walks, shopping...
Casa Luna Del Sol is a lovely open-concept, two-story family villa, which was recently completely renovated and features plenty of indoor and outdoor living space with magnificent tropical mountain views (over 270°!).
The house has lofted ceilings with beautiful local hardwood and tile floors, walk-in tiled shower with glass-block wall and a fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances and a butcher block. On the second level is a huge lofted master bedroom (queen bed) on hardwood floors w/ half bath which occupies the entire 2nd-level. Two other double bedrooms on located on the main level.
Enjoy leisurely afternoons in the hammocks under the huge tropical rancho made of real palms leaves or cool off in our private 14x20ft tiled pool + outdoor nature shower as you watch parrots fly through the surrounding tree tops and palm trees, iguanas taking in the sun on the flagstone and monkeys... just monkeying around.
The large outdoor patio is covered in local flagstone (won't burn feet in the hot sun). The house is set atop the seaside hills, so it's naturally breezy and *very well ventilated*; the natural breezes flow freely through the house. There is no air conditioning at Casa Luna Del Sol (no need for it!). We are also proud to say that each of our bedrooms is equipped with top-quality mattresses, pillows and bedding.
The Villa has new louvered windows & screens, and each bedroom is equipped with ceiling fans (4 new ceiling fans on the upper level in the Master Bedroom), top quality mattresses and new quilted mattress covers to ensure optimal comfort.
The kitchen is very well equipped with all stainless steel appliances, including a Butcher block and a water purifying system (inverse osmosis) in the Bodega for your carefree enjoyment. Includes stainless steel fridge/freezer, microwave, large toaster oven (room for a pizza), gourmet glass top cooking surface, and a dining room for 8. All furniture is made of local solid wood.

As we are located on a private and steep hilltop, and Samara is such a beautiful region to visit - so much to see and do! -, we do highly recommend the use of a car during your stay. 4x4s are highly recommended during the Green season.
You may choose to take a leisurely short 9-min walk down to Buenavista beach, sought for its unique waves by many surfers. It's a short 5-min drive (or 25 min walk) to the fabulous Samara Beach, less than 1,4 miles (2,3km) away. Be sure to try out some of the local restaurants, directly on the beach (feet in the sand with wifi and drink in hand), and grab a few of the incredible papayas, mangoes, melons and bananas as you walk by the local markets. Such a treat!
There is a large flatscreen TV and private internet (Wi-Fi) so you can stay connected, watch movies and listen to music, as you watch the monkeys playing in the surrounding trees, or imitate a lazy iguana sunbathing nearby.
Though Casa Luna Del Sol is set hilltop in a quiet and secure private community, it remains close to everything, and it has it's own security system for your peace of mind. Our Loma Verde private community has certain restrictions, *including no pets* as we wish to encourage the local fauna and flora. The Villa is non-smoking. We thank you for not smoking inside Casa Michèle.
Many inclusions in our rental fee : bed linens, kitchen towels, many pool and bath towels, a charcoal BBQ grill for the best grilled dinners. The weekly pool maintenance and groundskeeping is included, to ensure you and your family's stay is most enjoyable. Our local caretaker/concierge couple are neighbours and friends; they help us manage the property and they live nearby. They are very knowledgeable about the area and will ensure you don't miss a thing.
We're sure you'll love Casa Luna Del Sol and your Costa Rican experience as much as we did the first time we visited the Samara region!
