Nestled in a private garden setting, Casa Mango is just a 10 minute walk from one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica – Playa Samara.  The ocean-view house in the hills is close but not too close to downtown, which means it is quieter at night, has fewer bugs, and cooler temperatures than at the beach. You’ll have more privacy and more chances to see wildlife and be closer to nature. Casa El Mango shares a “get cool” pool and spacious covered rancho with Casa Papaya – it’s also available for rent.

Stretch your vacation funds by cooking at home in the fully equipped kitchen.  Set out the breakfast buffet in the poolside Rancho.  WIFI is available throughout the garden and house.

Amenities – Casa Mango is designed for comfort with a private terrace that expands the living area. Sea breezes keep the house cool. Pick bananas from your terrace, relax in the hammock or kick back in the poolside rancho while dinner sizzles on the barbecue.

Beach Access – Casa Mango shares two exquisite tropical beaches, each protected by a reef.  Playa Samara, with 4 surf schools and gentle waves for swimming or learning to surf is just a short walk from Casa Mango.  Paddle out to Isla Chora or snorkel at either end of the bay.  Fresh fish are sold in the afternoons at the eastern harbor.  Playa Carrillo, which you can see from the upper terrace of the house, is even prettier and quiet, lined with rows of palm trees instead of hotels and restaurants.  Just a 4 kilometer drive, there you’ll have the beach to yourselves most mornings.  You can swim in the gentle waves, lie under the shaded palms or hike around the point at low tide.

Location – Above the beach of Playa Samara – hence the terrific view – 1 km east of downtown Samara.  It’s just a short walk from Casa Mango to the nearest beach access at the village of Matapalo, where there are groceries (Super Stefanie).  From there you can walk 1 km along the beach past restaurants and surf schools into the town of Samara – there’s more of everything, including two banks, shops, and tour agencies.  The house is removed from the noisy activity downtown, but close enough to walk to the beach and then into town when you want more action.  In the hills above the bay, the nights are quieter and there are less bugs and cooler temperatures than at the beach.

If you follow our road up the hill 4 km, you’ll arrive at the pretty village of Santo Domingo.  Sunday football with a breathtaking ocean view.

From both airports – Liberia(2 hours) and San Jose (4+ hours) – the roads to the house are paved, door to door.
