“Perfect spot for your Costa Rican holiday!”

We stayed at Casita Amarilla for three weeks in June with our three kids under 6 and it was the perfect spot for our Costa Rican adventure! The house is spacious with all the modern conveniences of home so you can be as connected or disconnected as you want. The property is located in a community with only a few developed lots and as such is totally private. The house backs onto a nature reserve so there are ample opportunites for viewing tonnes of wildlife, including howler monkeys, iguanas, a variety of birds, armadillos, butterflies, frogs etc. Lime and mango trees line the property. The pool is gorgeous and the backdrop of the tropical forest unforgettable. The hammock in the catina is a pretty perfect spot to spend the afternoon, or watch the stars and fireflies at night.
It is a quick 5 minute drive to Samara which boasts a variety of restaurants and shops right on the beach. Lots of fun days trips from Samara and other nearby toens and beaches to explore.
The homeowner has a wealth of helpful recommendations about travelling to Costa Rica and local sites. We ran into a problem with our rental car and both the property manager and homeowner were incredibly responsive and helpful in assisting us get the issue resolved. We will definitely be going back!

“We highly recommend it!”
Reviewed 20 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Our stay at Casita Amarillo was fabulous. The jungle setting is perfect for viewing all types of wildlife: howler monkeys, many varieties of birds. The house is perfect for 2 couples or a family (bedrooms on either side of the house, with ensuite baths, and large living space). The pool was perfect for dipping in and out of to cool off, and a great view of the wildlife. Samara Beach village and beach are just a 5 minute drive away. Also a short drive from Carillo Beach, and many other amazing white sand beaches as well. A real gem!

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 20 May 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We had a wonderful time at Casita Amarilla. We rented the house with 2 other friends. The house was perfect for the 4 of us and is set up well for a family with 2 queen beds and a double with a bunk above. We found the location to be very relaxing - sitting by the pool listening to the sounds of nature at all times of the day. Town and beaches very close by. A week was not enough. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be back.
