    Property description
    Playa Samara
    Rental Home – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6
    Nestled in a tropical garden with great ocean views above the beach at Playa Samara, Casa Papaya is a relaxing retreat after a busy day of sun, sand, and surf. Two bedrooms and an extra futon in the living area make a great base for a family or a pair of couples - sleeps 6. Casa Papaya shares a 'get cool' pool and shady Rancho (covered terrace) with Casa Mango, also for rent. Rent both houses for a fun family reunion. Owners live in their own home on the property year around to assist you in any way possible.

    A haven for wildlife is the farm/woods next door. You can brush your teeth with a view of the monkeys in the Secropia tree - they're getting high eating the leaves. The private master terrace is great for bird-watching in the morning. A private outdoor shower lets...

Again we had a wonderful time thanks to the sweet casa which became our home for a month, to beautiful Playa Samara, one of the most gorgeous and lightly traveled beaches anywhere, and to the owners, Lavae and Steve who did everything to make... more

After visiting my husband's family for several days and staying with them, we were ready for our own space! While the drive was long and treacherous (unfortunately we drove in at night -- not recommended!!), it turned out... more

We rented Casa Papaya for the second half of our trip to Costa Rica but left after just a few hours. The house was filled with bugs and only got worse when the sun went down. It turned out that the main doors to the house don’t actually seal at the floor or with each other, leaving a quarter-inch opening... more

VWhen this renter returned the keys upon leaving, he gave us a very different description than his review. He said Casa Papaya was a lovely house, that he and his... more
