About the home

Panoramic Views of Manuel Antonio National Park

This first-class luxury home is on the highest hill in Manuel Antonio, providing a 270º panoramic view of Manuel Antonio National Park and the surrounding mountains. The 5,200-square-foot home features five luxurious bedrooms. All are air-conditioned and have full baths and stone showers.

Manuel Antonio Luxury Vacation Villa in a Jungle Setting with Amazing Ocean Views

The combined living and game room is on the third floor. This magnificent room has 15-foot ceilings of native-crafted mats and bamboo, supported by large hardwood columns of exotic native wood and hand-carved stone supports. The views from this level are awe-inspiring and will take your breath away.

The seating area has cable TV, a DVD player, and a stereo. The layout and open-air doors allows guests to enjoy the surrounding nature without the need for air conditioning.  This airy, vaulted space has five ceiling fans, softly cooling the interior. The room is completely open on all sides to the tropical breezes. Take in the spectacular views from the deck and enjoy the surrounding nature. The pool table and bar area will provide you with endless hours of fun time.

Tropical Luxury with Great Amenities

Relax around the 25-foot pool and gaze lazily at the birds above while listening to the soothing sounds of the surf below.

The four guest bedrooms feature truly amazing views and lots of privacy as there is only one per level. Two of the room have king beds, one has a queen, and the 4th has two full-size beds. All bedrooms have beautifully appointed bathrooms with custom sinks of glazed earthenware or hand-carved stone.

A large private balcony is accessible from the master suite. This room has a king-size bed and a large bathroom with a tub and stone shower.

The atmosphere is a beautiful combination of luxury and a tropical ambiance. Details include stonework, custom tile, landscaped tropical gardens, exotic hardwoods and bamboo, fountains and art collected from around the world.

The dining area and kitchen on the ground floor have sliding glass doors opening to the pool. A large outdoor deck provides plenty of space to bask in the sun and enjoy the cool tropical breezes. In the morning, enjoy the Mono Titis and squirrel monkeys leaping through the trees around the house, while sipping locally grown coffee.

This magnificent home was designed by an award-winning decorator. It is located in a gated community between the world-famous Mariposa and Si Como No hotels. Easily accessible, it is only 20 minutes away from the San Jose airport by air or 2.5 hours by car.

Our trip was fantastic thanks to the help of everyone with Escape Villas. This is my second time staying at an Escape Villa property and when I visit Costa Rica again, I will check to see if one of their properties are available. This time we stayed at Casa Samba. Prior to arrival, Concierge Carlos assisted us with the logistics of planning a perfect trip. When it was time for our trip, house manager David went above and beyond to assist us reschedule some excursions due to flight delays, was quick to solve any issues that came up and was attentive and friendly. We had the perfect chef in Chef Carlos, who prepared us delicious breakfasts and dinners daily and knew of & had lived in our small hometown in the US (what a coincidence), & Roxy who was the most perfect housekeeper. We joked that she moved like a feather as we never really saw or heard her but she did a phenomenal job. Casa Samba provided us with a great ocean view, the perfect wildlife encounters, & enough room for our entire group to be comfortable while celebrating a 50th birthday. I am confident that you could not go wrong with any of their properties as the pride in ownership & management is impeccable. Great job & thanks again for making our stay unforgettable.

This place is amazing and very high end

Stayed Apr 2024
Stayed 3 days. Staff kept in regular communication for our needs. They booked all our excursions. Needed to cancel one- no problem. Villa was amazing. Overlooking all tree tops and million dollar view of gulf. Roxy housecleaner ...amazing job, cleaning daily. Had fun in pool all day, jumping in from ledge of the dining room open view. No complaints. Likely need a car or taxi to get down and up the hill. Very safe and guarded street with guarded gate overnight.. Note, many stairs to climb up to door, as on a hill and rooms split over 5 levels. It was actually an asset unless you have mobility issues. Imaging playing billiards on the covered deck while it was raining. Will come back. Worth booking directly with escape villas. 5 star villa.

Amazing Time!
