** New to the rental market! (Dec 2015) ** Our completely renovated villa is set in a lush, tropical setting with stunning jungle views. A beautiful retreat for couples, families & friends! Set in a quiet and secure hilltop environment, yet just minutes away to all amenities.
2 Beaches :
- Playa Buenavista is a short 9-min walk from the Villa. It's a long and gorgeous uninhabited beach sought by surfers for it's remarquable waves. Beautiful sunsets just a few steps away!
- Playa Samara is close by: 1,4 miles (2,3km) (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 Michele is a lovely open-concept, two-story home which was completely renovated and features plenty of indoor and outdoor living space with magnificent tropical mountain views (over 180°!).
The house has lofted ceilings with beautiful local hardwood and tile floors, walk-in tiled shower and fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances. Huge lofted master bedroom w/ half bath occupies the entire 2nd-level. Two other double bedrooms on the main level.
Enjoy leisurely afternoons in the hammocks under the new tropical rancho w/ palm roof or cool off in our private 14x20ft tile pool + outdoor shower as you watch parrots fly through the surrounding tree tops, iguanas taking in the sun 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 Michele (no need for it!).
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) to ensure optimal comfort.
The kitchen is very well equipped with all new appliances, including a Butcher block and a water purifying system (inverse osmosis) for your carefree enjoyment. Includes stainless steel fridge/freezer/dishwasher, microwave, toaster oven, gourmet glass top cooking, and a dining room for 8. All furniture is made of local solid wood.
Bedroom 1 - 12'x11' ground level with 1 Queen bed, safe, wardrobe and ceiling fan

As we are located on a hilltop, and Samara is such a beautiful region to visit - so much to see and do! -, we do recommend the use of a car during your stay. 4x4 are highly recommended during the Green season.
You may choose to take a very short 9-min walk to Buenavista beach, sought for its unique waves by many surfers. It's a short 8-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 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, even under the palm Rancho, as you watch the monkeys playing in the surrounding trees, or imitate a lazy iguana sunbathing nearby.
Casa Michele is set on a hilltop lot in a quiet and secure private community, yet remains close to everything, and it has it's own security system for your peace of mind. The Loma Verde community has certain restrictions, including no pets. The Villa is non-smoking. We thank you for not smoking inside Casa Michele.
Many inclusions in our rental fee : bed linens, kitchen, pool and bath towels. The weekly housecleaning (min 7 nights), pool maintenance and groundskeeping is included, to ensure you and your family's stay is most enjoyable. Our bilingual caretaker/concierge couple are neighbours and friends; they helps us manage the property and 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 Michele and your Costa Rican experience as much as we did the first time we visited the Samara region!
