Clean Home,
Good views of the mountains
will need a 4x4 car to reach the house ....
We enjoyed being a bit away from town and it was easer to travel to other spots along the coast ...
Great cross breeze when you opened up the house

“Absolutely incredible property.”
Reviewed January 24, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

Staying at Casa Candelitas over New Year's with my family was a wonderful experience. The house is a work of art, with an impressive attention to detail throughout. Deanne clearly poured her heart into making this house, and it's a stunning representation of her creativity.

From the time of booking, Deanne was very professional and straightforward in her communication. The check in process was easy and simply, but remember you need a 4x4 to get up the road to the house! It's very steep! Louise, a retired expat form California who lives right next door is an incredibly kind and compassionate person. It was a true privilege to have her right there if we ever needed anything.

The house is wonderfully designed, with beautiful terraces perfect for relaxing or sunbathing. The pool is very large and extremely clean. The property is beautifully maintained, with a gardener that comes 3 days a week, and ample maintenance.

NOTE TO TRAVELERS:

This home is located in the jungle approximately 15 mins outside Samara. THERE WILL BE INSECTS (but not mosquitoes). Don't be shocked that you will find all kinds of living creatures around the home. My family personally really enjoyed the experience, but I also understand it isn't for everyone.

Our stay was simply fantastic. The house is beautiful, and we plan to return soon.
Thank you Deanne for letting us into your home, we had a blast!

This is exactly why I created Casa Candelitas, to offer pleasure, tranquility and beauty to those who wish to receive it. Thanks Jerome please do come back any time!

“Wonderful house in the perfect, secluded location”

We stayed in Casa Candelitas for a week with two kids aged 7 and 10. It was our perfectly comfortable, spacious base for exploring the beaches around Playa Samara. The house feels light and airy. The kitchen / living room extending straight into the pool with great views of the Pacific a couple of miles away was our favorite spot on the lower level. We also spent hours on the upper level deck, reading our watching the abundant wild life. Howler monkeys pass by 10-20 feet away several times a day.
The place is far enough away from Samara to even feel secluded during Semana Santa, yet close enough to drive to Samara for swimming/dinner/groceries daily. Louise, the very friendly and helpful neighbor is a real added bonus, in case of questions/ small difficulties.
We've been home now for three weeks and memories of our stay remain very vivid and overwhelmingly positive. We'd return any day (if only this place weren't so far away from Europe)!
