About the Owner

We are a Costa Rican-American family based in San José, Costa Rica. My father now partly retired started exploring and investing in property in the region nearly 30 years ago and fell in love with this place for its pristine beaches, exuberant vegetation, friendly people and laid back atmosphere. We started building our dream home in Samara Reefs in 2006. As an interior designer this was a project close to my heart and enjoyed working closely with our wonderful friend and Architect Karin Naguel as we shared the same vision of integrating the beauty of the magnificent surroundings into every corner of the house, with free flowing indoor/outdoor spaces that take in the stunning ocean and mountain views, cool breezes and soothing sounds of the waves breaking on the shore. We hope to be able to share our dream of paradise with you in the near future.

Heaven on earth

  • 5 of 5
I first visited Casa Del Sol in May 2014. This was my first time visiting this area of Costa Rica. My trip was outstanding, the local culture was very courteous, the restaurants were open air with very good prepared cuisine, the weather, beaches and stunning views of the ocean were indescribable. I returned to Casa Del Sol on December 23rd 2014 to spend Christmas and New Year’s in the tropics. Can you imagine anything better than to wake up on Christmas morning with your loved ones to some of the most stunning views imaginable as well as experiencing the exuberance for the New Year watching from the balcony as fireworks showered the night air lighting the ocean on New Year’s Eve! Evelyn the owner as always was amazing, she was very supportive, kind and caring to ensure that my trip exceeded my hopes and dreams. Bill her property manager continued to excel in his support of any tasks associated with making my stay enjoyable and everything that it could be. I definitely plan on spending much more time at Casa Del Sol!

Surpassed all expectations!

My family and I just returned from a week at what can only be called a breathtaking property, Casa del Sol. It is truly as amazing as all of my fellow reviewers say it is. From the moment we pulled up and looked straight through the front door to our infinity pool and ocean view, we knew we were in for a memorable vacation. The house itself is designed to give residents sight lines to the water from nearly every vantage point. Stocked with loads of conveniences, you never really have to leave if you don't want to. But you must as the charming town of Samara is just a short distance from your doorstep, and it offers nearly anything you could possibly need. Bill truly goes out of his way to introduce you to everything the area has to offer, from a welcome tour of town to stops at the grocery store to restaurant and activity recommendations and everything in between. (Plus he is the go-to guy for great wine!) Just knowing we could call Bill with any question put our minds at ease, especially being in a foreign country with kids. Believe what you read about Casa del Sol here. It's truly a magical place. Thank you, Bill and Evelyn, for sharing your special corner of the world with us.

Idyllic Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Our family spent an idyllic week at Casa Del Sol. The views from the house are absolutely breath-taking, and the house is so beautifully decorated and designed that you feel like you are living in an art gallery. We cooked a lot of meals, and the kitchen is so well stocked that we found everything that we needed.
Bill is fantastic. He is far more than a property manager. He served as our tour guide and local resource for absolutely any questions that we had. On the morning after we arrived, he drove us through town and told us about the sights, restaurants, tours, bakeries, grocery stores, etc. Prior to our arrival, he made sure that we had all of the information that we needed including very detailed directions to the house.
We took advantage of many of the attractions in the area including zip lining, hiking, horseback riding, fishing, and certainly laying on the beach. The highlights were seeing dolphins frolicking in the ocean and catching tuna and dorado, and eating the fresh fish plucked directly from the ocean.
We planned this trip because we were so sad that we could not be together as a family for the holidays. However, we found a week earlier in December when we could all be together. We could not have wished for a more perfect place for our vacation and family time, and we hope that we will be able to visit again soon.

Casa de Sol is an amazing property and it exceeded my expectations. The pictures do not do it justice as the property, location and the scenery are indescribable. The home is tastefully decorated, fully stocked and it does not get any better than enjoying an amazing sunset while relaxing in the infinity pool. The bedrooms are very spacious and face the ocean for some unbelievable views. In addition, the design of the showers allow you panoramic scenes to also enjoy the tranquility of the property. Morning coffee on the deck while listening to and enjoying the serenity of the ocean view as your backdrop is outstanding. Evelyn, the owner is wonderful and amazing lady. She is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is very professional, courteous and you could not ask for anyone to be more gracious and supportive in making your visit enjoyable. Bill, the onsite manager, is very sociable, attentive, and knowledgeable and works very hard to ensure that your stay exceeds your expectations. I can definitely say, that Casa de Sol, is a favorite property as well as a location that I definitely plan on spending many future stays in this paradise. Thanks again, Evelyn and Bill, for making my trip more than I could have ever imagined.

Location

From the Owner

Samara is simply one of the safest and prettiest beaches in the country, with its long stretch of of sandy beach, shallow, gentle waters, coral reefs and its very own island in the bay, Isla Chora. The town of Samara is charming, unique and picturesque with a wide variety of restaurants and beach side bars and it is also a thriving fishing and farming community. There are cowboys and cattle drives, fishing boats returning at sunset, exotic fruit harvests, specialty and organic farming, tree nurseries and reforestation projects. There are unusual plant and animal species, ancient Indian sites, underwater caves and coastal and mountain nature trails. Guitar, Spanish, yoga, aerobic and dancing lessons and massages are available. Just south of the popular surfer’s paradise of Samara Beach, Playa Carrillo is one of our favorite spots as one of the least developed most beautiful natural beaches on the Nicoya Peninsula. Framed by mountains, the laid-back fishing village has a white-sand beach just off a palm-lined boulevard with no unsightly beachfront buildings. Known among divers for its excellent coral reef teeming with marine life, the beach is protected by rocky headlands, providing calm, warm water for swimmers.
