About Mary-Ellen Meyers, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada
My husband and I built Casa Colibri in 2008. We love the tropical sunshine and it is the perfect place escape from the cold Canadian winters. When we ourselves cannot be in Samara, we very much enjoy sharing our piece of paradise with others. If Casa Colibri is not available for your dates, do check availability at Villa Mirador (vrbo 393786) which is 2 houses away, or ask me about the availability of two other Samara Reefs houses: Casa Centenario or Driftwood House. Also, check out Casa Estiyul (vrbo 553084), our partner's house on the hillside just below Samara Reefs. Pura Vida!

Why Mary-Ellen Meyers, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada chose Canton of Nicoya
Casa Colibri is an easy walk to Samara Beach and a short drive to the town-center. Samara has everything you DO want and nothing you DON'T want. It is a small, friendly town with a surprising number of great restaurants, 4 excellent grocery stores, and TONS of activities including hiking, fishing, zip-lining, beach activities, surfing, kayaking, swimming, kayaking, snorkeling, etc. In the town-center there is plenty of shopping choices and amenities such as car rental, a dentist, doctor, 2 banks, and some boutique shopping. Also, it is only a 5 minute drive to Playa Carrillo, considered by many (including the Lonely Planet) to be a jewel of Costa Rica: one of the country's most beautiful and unspoiled beaches. We vacationed here with our toddlers (now in their teens) and loved the safety of Samara and the small, friendly town of Samara. Because of the shape of the beaches and the protective offshore reefs, there are no LARGE waves, making these 2 beaches some of the safest swimming beaches in the country. And both win awards for outstanding cleanliness standards. We love having 2 beaches: for body surfing and boogie boarding, we prefer the waves at Carrillo; for people-watching and surfing, Samara is unbeatable. The town of Samara is wonderful: very friendly, relaxed, and even though it is small, it has a surprising number of great restaurants! And there is a huge variety of activities available - it is truly the perfect fit for a family vacation. The locals (who call themselves Ticos) are very friendly, positive, and happy people. Samara Reefs is a very special location, incredibly beautiful. We feel it surpasses all other developments of its type on the Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Come share our piece of paradise.
What makes this Villa unique
The two beaches, Playa Samara and Playa Carrillo are two of Central America's BEST beaches. If you want to relax, sit in a restaurant with your feet in the sand (margarita in hand) and be just feet away from the water, then Samara is the right beach for you. Not only is the choice of restaurants great, but at several of them, you can sit comfortably in the shade watching your kids play in the sand, swim safely in the water, take surfing lessons right in front of you. When the surf lesson is over, they can join you at the restaurant. Perfect! if you like people-watching, Samara has lots of fun restaurants, cafes, bars, and has a very friendly and relaxed "vibe". Samara is made up of local Costa Ricans, Americans, Europeans, a Registered Massage School, and is home to excellent surfing so the local vibe is diverse, energetic, and LOTS of fun. Palm-lined and pristine, Carrillo has been called "THE PRETTIEST, MOST UNSPOILED BEACH IN ALL OF COSTA RICA" by Lonely Planet. A HUGE benefit of Casa Colibri is its wonderful on-site caretakers. If you need assistance or help with the house, our Administrator, Daniel Quiros, and his wife Anna live across the street in their nearby casita. They are extremely helpful and will do everything they can to make your vacation even more enjoyable.
