Casa Pacifica is a luxury beach house offering a prime location 200 yards from one of best beaches in Costa Rica. The house is on a large private property just steps from two incredible beaches (Playa Samara and Playa Carrillo) and you are walking distance to the towns of Samara and Carrillo for a real taste of real Costa Rican culture. This is a perfect place for an active family vacation or just a relaxing, casual getaway. Samara Beach (200 yards from our door) is widely recognized as one of the safest and most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica.

This four-bedroom home has two masters and a great living area which opens up to the kitchen and a large covered terrace overlooking the pool. The pool is surrounded by a lush garden, and you can expect to be visited by monkeys, iguanas, land-crabs, red-tailed squirrels and scores of other lizards and birds. Samara Beach is known to be one of the safest swimming beaches on the west coast of Costa Rica but is also great for surfing too.

There is also another smaller house on the same property, Casita Pacifica. If you want a total of 6 bedrooms you can ask about renting both houses for your stay. Otherwise, both houses have their own entrance, driveway, terrace and parking and the pool and backyard are completely private to the main house. Note, if you want to rent this house you can also find it on this same website.

Boats can pick you up right at the beach (200 yards up the road) for world-class sport-fishing, turtle & dolphin tours or just a tour of the beautiful coastline. Included with the house are two kayaks so that you can tour the safe waters or go visit Isla Chola and have and entire island to yourself. You can learn to surf in Samara and catch intermediate waves,and you are only 15 miles away from some of the top surfing breaks in the world.

This is definitely one of the finest rentals in Samara. Our staff will ensure you have an amazing vacation. Wall-to-wall tile, quality linens, towels & large walk-in showers await you and housekeeping and security is included - all you have to do is enjoy yourself.

4/5 Good

Great, relaxing getaway
We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Pacifica. The 2 kayaks allowed my brother-in-law and I the opportunity to explore Isla Chora. We trucked it and got there in about 10 minutes. The beach was completely secluded besides a few local perros which were super friendly. Water was surprisingly warmer than the 72 degree air. We didn't experience much wildlife besides a few decent sized iguanas, a scorpion in the kitchen, and a $hitload of halloween crabs that raided the property from the ocean on our last night. The halloween crabs were wild. Probably about 50 of them jumped in the pool overnight. Awesome experience altogether. I felt really safe and secure. It is removed from town enough to avoid the crazy locals and tourists. $3-$10 USD for a cab ride one way into or out of town depending on if it's Samara (3 or 5 bucks) or Playa Carrillo (10 ish).

5/5 Excellent

Great place and great location
What a great house. The house owner, Paul, was very cool and easy to interact with, and the property manager Leo in Samara was equally easy. The house itself is very nice - great layout with en suite bedrooms at either end, and then a couple of extra bedrooms in between, along with a big living room and nicely stocked kitchen. We were two families with 3 kids total, plus friends staying in the casita with 2 more kids, and it never felt crowded. The pool was amazing. So refreshing in the hot days. The local beach right down the street was very chill, the beach in Samara was great for surfing and eating/drinking right on the beach, and the Carillo Beach was a 3 min drive and was amazing - plenty of trees for shades and locals hanging out, and we were pretty much the only gringos at the beach. I could go on and on, but suffice it to say we had a great time at a great house in an awesome location. Already looking for flights during the holidays.

5/5 Excellent

What a great place to stay
This is a really great rental property and if you get the chance to book it I would thoroughly recommend it. The layout of the house suited our family group of 7 The kitchen was well equipped and had staples including a few spices, oil, kitchen towel, washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets and bin bags. They also supplied toilet paper in all the bathrooms. The star of the house was the outside space though. We just loved it! The swimming pool was a good size - it lost the sun about 2.30 in the afternoon which was a shame but luckily the beach was very close. There were plenty of chairs and beds outside and a nice dining area. We took some citronella candles with us which I would recommend if sitting outside. Talking of guests to the garden we had some friendly raccoons visit as well as a troop of monkeys. There were loads of iguanas and lizards too. We used the kayaks and a couple of the bikes that were supplied. We walked to both beaches and they are as close as the description says. But for us it was far too hot to walk into Samara and only took 5 minutes in the car. Overall we had a lovely stay on this property and I would definitely hope to book it again if we go back to Costa Rica.

5/5 Excellent

Great stay!

Should really be called, from our perspective, Casa Tranquilidad, (Tranquility). Superb. We were well looked after by Melissa, the property manager at Samara Rentals. Very quick to respond to any concerns. All as described in the write up. Samara Beach literally a stones throw down the lane. Luvved it!!! We'll be back .....!!
