Mar is a short walk from Samara’s beach, restaurants and nightlife. You’ll love Mar because of the equipped kitchen, great patio, handcrafted furniture, cozy window seat, fast WIFI, no TV and comfortable beds. Villa Mar and 5 other villas share our beautiful pool and  bird's nest yoga platform on the Villas Espavel property. With our towering trees alongside a seasonal river. you’ll relish the cool shade of Villas Espavel when the rest of town is scorching. Mar is good for families and small groups. All the windows have window screens and security bars.

We spend most of our time outside and I bet you will too. Favorite pass times are swinging in the hammock while looking at the green jungle and swimming in the cool pool. Villas Espavel is a 5 to 10-minute walk to the beach, restaurants, Intercultura language school and The Costa Rica School of Massage. 

Villas Espavel is very secure as the property is hidden away down a long driveway. There are 4 parking spots that are available on a first come, first served basis. There is ample street parking outside of our gate if all the parking spots are filled.

You will see our manager, Johanna, our cleaning & maintenance team and our gardener onsite most days in case you have questions as you settle in. We have a washer & dryer available if you need one during your stay.

About host

Canuche Terranella and Mercy Rome

We're an active family with a 12 year old boy and 10 year old girl. Both Mercy & Canuche have worked in sustainable building in the Seattle area before becoming your happiness engineers providing you with delight and fun in Samara, Costa Rica at Villas Espavel. We live in Leavenworth, Washington. When we aren't helping guests create wonderful vacations, we love to cook, eat local food and spend time outside with friends and family. We are beekeepers and avid gardeners. When the weather is warm we love to SUP, surf, boogie and snorkel. When the white stuff falls you'll find us on skis enjoying downhill, X-country or skate terrain. We have traveled much of the world, some of our favorite places are Costa Rica, Mexico, Turkey, Syria and Scandinavia. We love hosting people and sharing the beauty of Costa Rica.
