Had a wonderful 10 days in Costa Rica and it started with the house. Casa Samba and the view are spectacular. Monkeys in the trees off the deck, iguanas on the casita roof and even a toucan!"
What a wonderful place! Our group of eight people has had the best time at Casa Samba. We’ve done tons of tours and even gone fishing…successfully! We have had a wonderful vacation and lots of great memories. Thank you for sharing your wonderful house with us. Casa Samba and Costa Rica have made our family vacation 2004 fabulous!"
Beautiful Vacation Rental with an excellent chef - Choko!
I recently stayed at Casa Samba in Manuel Antonio for a week with my extended family and had a great time. The house is conveniently located in Manuel Antonio...
10 Days in Paradise
A group of 9 of us were in Costa Rica for the Offshore World Championships and chose Casa Samba because of its proximity to the event.
The villa had everything our group of 9 could need - 4 adults & 5 teenagers had plenty of space to spread out, enough bathrooms to make everyone happy, bedrooms were comfortable and clean.
Our Slice of Paradise
We visited Casa Samba in March of 2015 for 10 days. Upon our arrival, our host Ricky gave us the full tour of the wonderful house and all its offerings.
