Casa Libre in Samara, Costa Rica, is perched upon a ridge overlooking the Pacific Ocean and nestled among the hills of a high tropical forest. While secluded and private it is not remote, and is surrounded by two nature preserves.It is an absolutely beautiful and peaceful getaway, yet just minutes by car to two great beaches that draw locals from all over Costa Rica as well as internationals from all over the world looking for any number of tropical adventures. Drive up to the end of the short rugged road to this privately situated and securely gated 2 + bedroom, 2.5 bathroom home on 7 acres with panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean and surrounding hills cascading to the Pacific Ocean. Casa Libre is a peaceful tropical sanctuary, and yet quite close to the energy of water sports and the buzz of the casual but sophisticated night life of Samara. This Spanish style villa is nestled in the foothills above two of Costa Rica's most idyllic beaches -- Playa Samara and Playa Carrillo. Apart from all the modern interior conveniences of a 4-year old home (ceiling fans, air conditioning, recessed lighting, fully equipped kitchen with granite counters and teak cabinets), outdoors Casa Libre has an expansive veranda, stunning rooftop observatory pavillion, infinity pool and palm-thatched rancho with bar and grill. Playa Samara is a beach destination for internationals seeking the the adventures of surfing, snorkeling, sea kayaking, paddle-boarding, beach volleyball, horseback riding, fishing, of course swimming, jungle ziplining, and beachfront restaurants and bars. Samara has surf schools and yoga studios. It's a lively village and only 1.5 miles from the house. Playa Carrillo is a palm-lined stretch of white sand beach favored by locals throughout Costa Rica and travelers, alike, because of its beauty. It's perfect for swimming, sunbathing, tidal pool exploring, snorkeling, or lounging in a hammock under the shade of the palms, and only 4 miles from the house. Melissa, my property manager, will meet and greet you at her office in Samara. Then she will escort you up the rugged semi-private road to Casa Libre. She will show you around the house and orient you to the area. She will answer whatever questions you may have, hand you the keys and then leave you in peace. She will also be available to contact if assistance is needed or to connect you with local adventure tours. Awaken to to the calls of howler monkeys and the songs of many tropical bird species. Cooled by tropical sea breezes, view nature in all its splendor in every direction from the veranda, pool area or rooftop pavillion, while sipping your coffee or doing your morning yoga. Take the 5-minute drive to Samara or the 10-minute drive to Carrillo or even the 30-minute drive to the world-renowned surfing beaches of Guiones or Nosara. Spend the day swimming... surfing... zip-lining... hiking... fishing... paddle-boarding... snorkeling... horseback riding... playing beach volleyball... or investigating the local nature preserves and then, return home, relax and sip your evening drinks by the infinity pool. The villa is equipped with every modern convenience. Casa Libre is perfect for your escape. It is truly a place of freedom!More

About the neighbourhood
Playas (beaches) Samara and Carrillo are extraordinary. They are only a few miles apart, but they couldn't be too much more different from eachother. Samara is lively beach with water sports of all sorts and lined with all kinds of restaurants, volleyball courts, surf schools and yoga studios. Carrillo is a peacefully undeveloped beach, lined with palm trees and defined by reef tidal pools at each end. There is a vast array of restaurants (more than 40) and shops in Samara, but Carrillo has remote resorts in the hills.
Getting around
Throughout Costa Rica it is always advisable to use a 4-wheel drive vehicle, though locals often travel by foot, bus and motorcycle. That enables travellers to get around without inconvenience as well as to explore the more out of the way locations where hidden natural gems are to be found.
