You can literally walk out of both the master bedroom and living areas into the pool and view the mountains, along with a large variety of birds, monkeys and various other creatures, while you cook up a fantastic meal in the gourmet kitchen. The yoga deck is on top with a 360 degree view of ocean and mountains, and also works perfectly as a painting or drawing studio. The property has it's own bananas, papayas, and mangos, monkeys, monkeys and more monkeys! There is a tribe that lives in this area and their highway is right next to the upper decks so they pass through frequently. The three bedrooms all have private bathrooms with indoor/outdoor showers and tile designs that are works of art in themselves. Unique Light Sculptures adorn each bedroom, as well as both indoor and outdoor sconce lights, cast glass sculptures and paintings all created by the owner. All of the furniture was, as well, designed and made specifically for the house. A 10 to 15 minute drive will get you to two of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica, in fact Carrillo was named one of the most beautiful beaches in the world! This truly is paradise and you have total privacy to experience deep serenity and engage with the natural world! More

About the neighbourhood
The location of the house is high on a hill about 10 minutes outside of the town of Samara with spectacular views of the beach and surrounding mountains. It is close enough to town to be convenient yet out of the noise and energy of the town. It is very private, quiet and serene, a REAL experience of the Costa Rican natural environment. It is not really in a tourist area but a very authentic Costa Rican village. There is a beautiful river to walk to, lots of bird and monkey watching, amazing yoga deck with 360 degree views, cycling, horseback riding is very convenient.
