A hill; A house and its terraces surrounded by gardens and trees. A swimming pool suspended above the nature. A sweet, spectacular view: fields, centenary trees and the sea ... An island on a hill close to amenities.

Une colline; une maison et ses terrasses entourées de jardins et d'arbres. Une piscine suspendue au-dessus de la nature. Une vue douce, spectaculaire: des champs, des arbres centenaires et la mer...
Une île sur une colline proche des commodités.

The space

Perched on a hill about forty meters above sea level, the property extends over land of more than one hectare to preserve its privacy and enjoys a 180 degree view without obstructions or constructions , With in the foreground a landscape of "African savannah" and the sea in the background, whose sound of waves invites into a whisper. The swimming pool with an over-flow along its length (16 meters), the work of one of the most famous landscapers of Costa Rica, resembles a natural river suspended between sky and earth and invites the bather to enjoy the view and to s' Immersed in nature amid lush vegetation. It is not uncommon to meet the amused look of the howler monkeys, fond of the place and its majestic trees, hear parakeets or see birds coming to snap in the pool. The house and its covered terraces occupy an area of almost 260 m2. After leaving his vehicle in front of the portal, one reaches the house by a small trail of about fifty meters allowing to admire, down below, a nature remained intact. Guests can relax on the terrace in the south, take refuge under the pergola in the north in the middle of an intimate garden, settle in a hammock south of the terrace or rest in the Balinese pavilion extending the pool. The house has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms (each with shower, toilet and 2 sinks, one with adjoining laundry), as well as a large kitchen / office / library. The house ideally welcomes 2 couples or 1 couple with 2 children; However, there is an extra double mattress that can be placed on the floor and that can be easily accommodated by an adult or a child. Do not forget that you spend most of your time on the terraces and in the pool! 5 beautiful beaches very different from each other are nearby; From the south to the north: Carrillo, coconut trees (15 minutes by car), Samara with its beachfront restaurants (10 minutes), Buena Vista, wild beach facing the house (5 minutes), Barrigona, White sand (10 minutes) and Barco Quebrado, "the pelican beach" (15 minutes). The beach of Nosara, surfers' paradise, is 25 minutes away. It goes without saying that these beaches are also accessible by foot or by bicycle by peaceful paths. The gardener cleans the pool every day and maintains the garden and path. The professional maintenance of the pool takes place every Friday morning. A maid comes once a week (4 hours). On request, it can come more often.

Perchée sur une colline située à une quarantaine de mètres au-dessus du niveau de la mer, la propriété s'étend sur un terrain de plus d'un hectare pour préserver sa privacité et jouit d'une vue à 180 degrés sans obstruction ni constructions, avec en premier plan un paysage de "savane africaine" et la mer en arrière-plan, dont le bruit des vagues s'invite dans un murmure.

La piscine avec un over-flow sur toute sa longueur (16 mètres), oeuvre d'un des plus fameux paysagistes du Costa Rica, ressemble à une rivière naturelle suspendue entre ciel et terre et invite le baigneur à savourer la vue et à s'immerger dans la nature au milieu d'une végétation luxuriante.

Il n'est pas rare de croiser le regard amusé des singes hurleurs, friands du lieu et de ses arbres majestueux, d'entendre des perruches ou de voir des oiseaux venir s'ébrouer dans la piscine.

La maison et ses terrasses couvertes occupent un espace de près de 260 m2. Après avoir laissé son véhicule devant le portail, on accède à la maison par un petit sentier d'une cinquantaine de mètres permettant d'admirer, en contrebas, une nature restée intacte.

Les hôtes peuvent se prélasser sur la terrasse au sud, se réfugier sous la pergola au nord au milieu d'un jardin intimiste, s'installer dans un hamac au sud de la terrasse ou encore se reposer dans le pavillon balinais prolongeant la piscine.

La maison compte 2 chambres et 2 salles de bains (chacune avec douche, wc et 2 lavabos; l'une avec buanderie attenante), ainsi qu'une grande cuisine/bureau/bibliothèque. La maison accueille donc idéalement 2 couples ou 1 couple avec 2 enfants; toutefois, il y a un matelas double supplémentaire qui peut être placé par terre et sur lequel peut aisément dormir un adulte ou un enfant.

N'oubliez pas que l'on passe la majorité du temps sur les terrasses et dans la piscine !

5 magnifiques plages très différentes les unes des autres se trouvent à proximité; du sud au nord: Carrillo, bordée de cocotiers (15 minutes en voiture), Samara avec ses restaurants pieds dans l'eau (10 minutes), Buena Vista, plage sauvage face à la maison (5 minutes), Barrigona , plage sauvage de sable blanc (10 minutes) et Barco Quebrado, "la plage aux pélicans" (15 minutes). La plage de Nosara, paradis des surfers, est à 25 minutes. Il va de soi que ces plages sont également accessibles à pieds ou à vélo par des chemins paisibles.

Le jardinier nettoie tous les matins la piscine et entretient le jardin et le chemin d'accès. La maintenance professionnelle de la piscine a lieu tous les vendredis matin.

Une femme de ménage vient une fois par semaine (4 heures). Sur demande, elle peut venir plus souvent.

Other things to note

IMPORTANT: the house has wi-fi. Costa Rica is not a country as developed as the United States or Europe and there can sometimes be cuts or a drop in speed. However, the internet works well and everyone can work at ease. The house has a fixed phone that you can use for your communications in Costa Rica and a mobile phone is at your disposal as well. For your own foreign mobile phones, make sure to use a unlocked 3G mobile phone and get a local SIM card to lower your costs (about USD 2.- at an ICE agency = Electricarad Institute of Costaricense, there is an agency in Samara) .

Our family of 4 (2 year old and 4 year old) had a wonderful stay at Pura Vida! As mentioned in previous posts, the pool is really what makes this home above and beyond. The setting is superb. We highly recommend a 4 WD car!

Our time at Pura Visa was absolutely magical, the pictures don't do justice to the beauty of this special place. The home is gorgeous with everything you need, the view is breathtaking and the pool is stunning. Our family of four had the best time watching birds, monkeys, iguanas, coatis, visiting the many beautiful beaches and hanging out in lovely Samara. Highly recommend this home. Pura Vida!

This place is magical. We loved the pool and outdoor living space, where we spent most of our time. The Howler monkeys were around almost every day and so many different birds. It's a great location to town and a bunch of beaches. The property managers, Arnaud and Tatiana were really helpful and quick to respond if we needed anything or even if we had a question. The pictures don't really do it justice, the views are amazing and you can hear the ocean in the distance. We had a really great and relaxing stay here. Thanks Chloe and David. Thanks to Arnaud and Tatiana too !

How lucky (or good) we’re we to find such an ideal place for us! My husband, 18 month-old baby and myself stayed there for 25 days and we stroke gold! Here’s our highlights: No need for air conditioning since you’re a little higher up. So we could sleep with the windows open. I suspected the swimming pool to be in actuality small… not at all. Everyday, we did swimming laps. The open sky all around the house is an unreal series of birds' highways. Absolutely grateful to have observed so many birds, so close, at one location, day in and day out. This was our third time in Costa Rica and this is where we’ve observed the most amount of birds. Howler monkeys every other day travelling in the trees around the house. They’re literally right there, no need for binoculars. Just a few meters from you. They are not afraid of you, do not bother you and are not interested a bit in anything you have to give them. The closest beaches are the best ones: BuenaVista and Barrigona. We went there everyday. Very few tourists. On certain days we had the beach to ourselves. Never ran out of hot water at the house. Kitchen is well equipped and spacious. We will return (and we usually do not return to the same place twice). But we’ll make an exception for David’s house. Location, location, location.

Maybe the most beautiful views one can see, with an incredible and magic swimming pool suspended in the middle of an exuberant nature (with birds and monkeys !). Doubtless the most Zen stay and Feng Shui property I have seen in my entire life. A place which feeds the soul ! A stay full of great memories I shall keep in my heart.

The house is just perfect. The pool is incredible. But the view is absolutely stunning. The pictures don't do it justice. what the pictures don't capture is how stunning the surroundings really are, or how private the home is. There's just nothing around you but nature. No neighbors too close by...except the monkeys that came by almost every afternoon. The house is fairly simple - an outdoor patio and indoor kitchen area in the center, then a bedroom and bathroom two each side. But while it's simple, it's also very tastefully done and the finishing touches are all high quality. David was a great host - very quick to respond to any emails, and the house manager and gardener were incredibly helpful. A very quiet, beautiful beach is a 4 minute drive away (15 minute walk) and Samara is about 10-15 minutes by car. Highly recommend this rental.

The house itself is very basic, but has an amazing view and a great pool. It feels very private except for the monkeys playing in the tree outside of your bedroom window! Amazing wildlife gave us a real feel of jungle life. The sun rising and shining through the master bedroom and the birds singing were our 6am alarm clock, this was a great start to the day. Which was then followed by a swim in the pool and fresh juice. I loved having a juicer! The gardener, who has a little store near by, was very helpful, and patient with our lack of Spanish. I would definitely rent this house again. A 4x4 is highly recommended, there is a river to cross and a long bumpy steep drive to get the house. It's so nice to be up high away from the dust and you also get a nice breeze.

We have been traveling during many years in Europe, Central and South America, Asia and Africa before we decided to stay mainly in Argentina and Costa Rica. Buenos Aires is a beautiful and cultural city that we adore. Esterones de Samara is a peaceful and natural beach area we enjoy every year. We will be glad to share with you these special places and our good addresses and to give you some good tips about the city of Buenos Aires or the best sites near our house in Costa Rica.

Welcome !
