This is a brand new (2014) 3-bed, 2-bath house with superb views of the ocean and mountains. The large shaded patio, dining area and kitchen are open to the warm Costa Rican air, while the living room and bedrooms are air conditioned for your comfort.
The living room has a TV and DVD player with a number of movies to watch and some board games.
The kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, microwave, stove, large fridge, pots and pans, coffee maker, kettle, cutlery and dishes, hand mixer and blender. The water is safe to drink but to be absolutely sure we have a filter on the drinking water tap. Cleaning is available at a low extra cost and can be arranged through the property manager.
The master bedroom has a queen bed, two night tables, wardrobe and ensuite bathroom with rainhead shower and vessel sink.
On the lower level (17 steps) there is one bedroom with a queen bed and one with two single beds. Both have night tables and wardrobes. There is a large bathroom with rainhead shower and vessel sink. This room also has storage and a washer and dryer. With its steel door, this room can be used to store valuables when you are not in the house. There is also a baby's travel cot.
The private pool is on the lower level with patio seating and large umbrella. The multi- coloured pool light makes night time swims magical.
There is parking for 3 cars on the concrete pad. Note there are 9 steps from the parking area to the front door. A four- wheel drive vehicle is recommended but not essential.
The natural wildlife is all around you from the noisy howler monkeys to the chattering parakeets. From our house you will see butterflies , many different kinds of birds, iguanas and occasionally monkeys. There are many activities in the area such as ocean and river kayaking, zip line, in- shore and deep sea fishing, surfing, horse back riding, turtle watching, bird watching, etc. There is a 9 hole golf course at Punta Islita about 30 mins away.
This a perfect place to relax at home or on quiet Carrillo beach, or enjoy the buzz of Samara beach and its restaurants, shops and amenities.
To reach Samara and Carrillo there are public buses from Liberia and San Jose airports, a daily shuttle/private bus, or private taxis (we can provide contact information for the shuttle and taxis). We recommend flying into Liberia, about an hour and a half drive from Samara. You will need a car to reach the house but there are car rental companies in Samara if you prefer to use other transportation to get to the village.
We do not recommend driving at night as the roads are not lit or well marked. If you arrive in Costa Rica late in the afternoon the best option is to stay overnight at a hotel near the airport and continue your journey in the morning. The most popular airport hotel in Liberia is the Hilton.

The best view in Playa Carrillo and Samara Playa Samara, Guanacaste, Costa Rica
Additional Location Information
The house is 3.5 kms up the hillside and along an unpaved road from one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica, Playa Carrillo, a palm-tree lined crescent of sand bordering the ocean. Samara, 7 kms west of Playa Carrillo, is a bustling village next to the ocean providing all modern amenities such as ATMs, Internet cafĂŠs, shops, grocery stores, doctor, dentist, pharmacies, bakery and restaurants. The beachside restaurants in Samara are the perfect place to while away an afternoon or evening swaying in a hammock and enjoying your favourite cold drink. There is usually music and casual entertainment during the high season, but it will be quieter out of season. If you prefer casinos and night clubs, this is not the place for you, but if you like to relax in a small restaurant under the trees, next to the ocean, with a laid back and friendly atmosphere, you will love it.
There are many things to do in the area including surfing, quad tours, in-shore and deep sea fishing, zip line rides, horse riding, turtle watching, kayaking, biking and tours. The tourist offices in Samara provide lots of information and speak English. The Natural Centre in Samara offers fitness and dance classes as well as a basic gym. There is also an organic market and shop. There are surf schools on Samara beach where you can rent equipment and take lessons.
