Made our vacation!

  • 5 of 5
Our family trip to Costa Rica was fantastic thanks to our stay at Casa Sevana and Playa Carillo. We loved everything about this home - the beautiful architecture, layout, views, swimming pool, hammock, grounds, howler monkeys screeching in close proximity across the street, and closeness to the ocean. The owners were great with all communications. Playa Carillo beach was absolutely gorgeous and swimming in it fantastic. We also loved our visits to nearby Playa Samara too. Our vacation was wonderful.

Our Place in the Sun !

  • 5 of 5
We were very pleased ! the house was a wonderful Oasis from the hustle and bustle (a relative term) of Samara. The posted picture is accurate and the view is a feast for the eyes. The property is well planted with maturing trees, not so as to block views but provide some shade if desired. Two floors offering views to the Pacific from both levels. We used the pool extensively, and it was a God send on some of the hotter days. With Corrillo beach only a short walk away, a person can easily experience the serenity of the pool and the pounding surf within moments of each other. the return to the house if walking ,is up hill. I enjoyed the exercise (63 yrs. old) I did it numerous times.
We had a car rental which was nice in that it never let us down, the down side was that is was a small 4x4 a very common car, with a short wheel base and a tight suspension which made for a ride like a buckboard on the back roads. It got us to all of our destinations and home again. I will not elaborate as the rental car agencies may be watching here:)
The process of renting this house was totally painless, everyone from Sevana to
Melissa (the representative in Samara) were helpful and professional. I would not hesitate a moment to rent this property again. We have rented from many places around the world and this was as easy and straightforward as any we have ever done.

Outstanding!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family absolutely loved the property...it was our favourite spot in the entire Country. Playa Carrillo has a ton to offer, the neighbourhood was safe and the people were very friendly, there was numerous excursions within an hour of the home and out of the 50 or so beaches we saw...Playa Carrillo was the best. The home was beautiful, secure, comfortable and had magnificent views of the ocean. Spent countless hours in the pool and on the porch overlooking the ocean...marvellous! The home owners were fantastic...Quick responses, lots of great information, and super nice. Definitely hope to stay here again one day.

A great place!

This was our fourth stay at Casa Sevana. Even the resident iguana recognized us! It is a great house and a perfect location for us to escape the increasingly long and cold Montreal winters.

One of our best VRBO experiences

  • 5 of 5
This was our fist trip to Costa Rica and we sought a place right on the water. Although not right on the water Casa Sevana was our choice and it was fantastic. The owner-architect put thought into everything in this house. If there was a breeze blowing, the location of this house took full advantage of it. Kitchen was well stocked with all of the pots, pans knives etc that you need. When we did eat in we enjoyed our meals on the upper deck viewing a beautiful sunset. Ceiling fans circulate the air and there is a/c in the bedrooms. The outside gardens are beautifully landscaped and any time of day you could find shade in the yard, downstairs deck our under an umbrella.
Best restaurant within walking distance is El Colibri where 4 of us had a couple of drinks, tenderloin and shared 2 desserts for $130. You can also walk to the local store which is well stocked. Beach is walkable but we genererally drove with chairs towels etc. owners and local managers are very helpful and responsive. Overall one of the best VRBOs we have ever rented.

Perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I have visited Carrillo and Samara for the past 3 years. This year we brought our 4 adult children ranging in age from 18 to 23. This was a wonderful very accommodating home for all of us. The house is fully equipped with everything you might possibly need. It is very clean and comfortable and the pool was wonderful. We saw lots of monkeys, birds and even a couple of Iguanas. Carrillo Beach was a 5 minute walk and there are several great restaurants and stores within walking distance too. Casa Sevana is definitely a place we will stay again.

Location

From the Owner

We went to CR on vacation for the very first time in 2004 – and fell in love with the Carrillo/Samara area. Within 2 month we had bought a piece of land and I finally had the opportunity to design my very own house; a dream as an architect! It became my baby! It was so much fun, both designing it and coming down often to follow the construction. We were also so lucky to work with the best builder in the area. We spent the first night in our new home in December 2007. We now come down for a month twice a year; to take care of and enjoy our home and to swim at the most beautiful beach along the entire coast!

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Liberia International LIR at 68 Miles Nearest Beach : Carrillo at 0.45 Miles Car: not necessary

Carrillo is Costa Rica for Real -- a Friendly & low-keyed little town, with a mixed population of locals and expatriates. The palm lined Beach is a piece of Paradise with white sand, clear and calm water – perfect for kids – and no buildings in sight. It is never crowded and there is good snorkeling at its reefs.

Apart from the beach, food shopping and restaurants, Carrillo offers a tour operator, a small zoo, sportfishing, hiking and horseback riding. Most services are on the main street, a 2-3 minute walk from our home. There are close to 10 restaurants within a 5 minute walk. The beach is less than 0.5 miles (750 meters) away.

Nearby Sámara (4 miles away) has many more shops and restaurants, some nightlife, banks and ATMs, surfing (ideal for beginners), canopy tours and massage.
