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. Mar and 5 other villas share our beautiful pool on the Villas Espavel property, which is nestled against the jungle and a seasonal river. With our towering trees you’ll relish the cool shade of Villas Espavel when the rest of town is scorching. Mar is good for families and small groups.
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.
Villa Mar is set on the peaceful grounds of Villas Espavel where you share a pool, tree-top yoga rancho, and riverfront jungle with the owner’s home and 5 other Villas. Each Villa also has its own patio or balcony. 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. All the windows have window screens and security bars.
You will see our manager, Tano, our head cleaner, Magali, and our gardener, Caliche, onsite most days and they will be available to answer your questions and help you settle in. We have a washer available if you need one during your stay.

We're an active family with a 11 year old boy and 8 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 and in Seattle, Washington at Plum Modern. 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, avid gardeners, hikers and campers. 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 and Seattle.
