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 truly enjoy this magical place and we look forward to sharing this slice of pararadise where stunning views and simple serenity are waiting for you...

Unbelievable week in Costa Rica!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Where do I even begin?!!! We have been to Costa Rica 4 times... have stayed in many towns & deluxe accommodations all over Costa Rica and Hawaii. This is the best of the best!!! The view from this house, terrace and pool patio out to the ocean is unobstructed and incredible. You cannot help but skip a breath a little bit every time you walk into the house. The views are just as wonderful from almost every room of the house! We were spoiled by Margarita... the sweetest and most attentive housekeeper and cook. She doted on our families. (We were 2 families of 4...8 people total). Margarita made us a delicious breakfast every morning... even remembering each morning that I like to sit with my coffee for a bit before I eat breakfast. She then would clean all the dishes and the rest of the house while we either relaxed poolside or went on an adventure. She would also offer to make lunch for you if you wanted. For an extra fee (so worth it) she can also cook dinner for you... whatever you choose. She made us the most amazing Casada dinner one night and on another night a seafood pasta that was OUT of this WORLD!!!

The town of Samara is one of the cutest towns in CR. It has so many delicious restaurants (highly rec Gusto's at night), bars, beaches, grocery, ATV tour, zip lining... are all just 5 minutes down the hill. Super close to the town. You will also have your own concierge, Bill, who can help you plan or book anything you want! We even had masseuses come to the house to give us all massages! If you like surfing, the town of Nosara is only a 30-40 min drive away.

Evelyn, the owner, is the most gracious person. We are so grateful to her to let us stay in this incredible villa. We will most definitely be back as soon as possible.

Perfect Vacation!!! WE LOVE MARGARITA!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I went with his family (who stays at Casa del Sol almost every summer for the last few years) in late July for 9 wonderful days! We enjoyed every minute of our stay! When we arrived to the house on the first day, the doors were open with fresh Costa Rican air breezing through, everything was sparkling clean, and Bill/Margarita were there to greet us. Everything was perfect from the very beginning. Now lets talk about the views from this place....... absolutely breath taking!!!! You think it looks great in the pictures... just wait until you see it in person. My Uncle Andy ordered wine from Bill, he had it there the next day and all of it was amazing!! Our daily routine included waking up drinking a nice cup of coffee with Baileys that Margarita brewed up for us, I would then run down to the beach for my daily workout, back up to the house to get ready for the day, then off to the beach, zip lining, the cattle auction in Nicoya, sightseeing, or hiking. Samara has something for everyone! The restaurants that Bill and Evelyn recommended were all great. We went out at night a few different times we had, Italian, steak, seafood, Costa Rican food, it was all amazing! The house keeper/chef, Margarita is a star!!!!!!!! She made the best ceviche I have ever had in my life! We tried Ceviche wherever we went but none of them compared to hers. One night Margarita was making fajitas and taught me how to make her homemade corn tortillas.....I'm definitely still trying to learn her perfect technique. Her food was just amazing, she took great care of us! The fruit, vegetables, meat, and fish Samara has to offer were so fresh and delicious. I still crave the pineapple from there it's out of this world!!! For us, it was the perfect vacation! Gorgeous house, lovely people, great food, and even better drinks. :) Such a special place where we all made wonderful memories! We can't wait to go back next year!!!! Honestly, I could go on and on about this place but I think you all get the point!! WE ARE OBSESSED!

Absolutely fantastic!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent 28 wonderful days in Casa del Sol and absolutely enjoyed every minute of it. From the very beginning, even before our arrival, everything was perfect. Bill and Evelyn gave us a list of the best activities to do and restaurants to go to, we had very detailed directions to get to the villa and when we got there, our breath was taken away by the beauty of it all. We ordered some wine through Bill and everything was already in place at the villa when we arrived, some of the whites already nicely chilled ! REALLY a 5 star vacation! Margarita was so wonderful, she is an incredible cook and she took great care of us the whole time. Samara is a truly special place and you can find pretty much anything you wish within minutes. Great restaurants, great food, beautiful fresh fruits, vegetables and fish! For us, it was a life changing trip with the Pura Vida experience and the feelings of, truly, absolutely, being away from it all! I think the best vote of confidence is that we are already booked for a month next year!

A five star experience from beginning to end! The house itself was even more beautiful then the pictures. The attention to detail throughout the house was amazing. All you need to pack are your clothes because everything else you might need has been provided for you. Evelyn,Bill and Margarita are the icing on the cake. They truly add to the whole experience. Bill worked with our family before we even got there to help plan all our activities and once we arrived he made sure everything was perfect. Margarita was so easy going; nothing was too much for her. The meals were not only delicious but the presentation was so pretty. I can't say enough about how wonderful she was. If you ever want to treat yourself and your family to a truly special vacation this is the place!

Unforgettable Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just got back from Villa Costa del Sol.....few words could match this experience! The villa is beautiful and perfect in every way. The magic lies in all the details. There are so many little things they do that surprise you and make your stay grand. Bill, Evelyn and Margarita were dedicated to making our vacation as enjoyable and comfortable as possible. Samara and Carrillo Beach were beautiful, the Villa was first class and Bill was extremely helpful prior and during our stay. He made all the arrangements for pickup from and to the airport received us and gave us a tour through town. Margarita was very friendly and went out of her way to accommodate us...such a treat to wake up in the morning to fresh fruit and breakfast served for you at the table. We rented ATV's and went to see the scarlet Macaws at Islita, did the Wingnuts canopy just a 5 minute walk from the house and flew the gyrocopters along the coast...truly BREATHTAKING!! We have added this to our top 5 BEST TRAVEL EXPERIENCES around the world...and we travel often!

A Must Stay If You Are Ever In Samara

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved Evelyn's house. Several couples stayed with us and everything is laid out PERFECTLY for a group vacation. The cook Margretta was not only a fantastic cook but a great teacher of the language (we enjoyed her immensely). Bill was way more than a property manager - wine guru, tourist guide, historian and much much more. We had him and his wife Donna over for dinner and we all had a blast. Just a little wine involved.

We highly recommend Casa Del Sol to anyone wanting a authentic Costa Rican Vacation, we will be back.

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.
