Casa Espavel is the hidden gem of Samara. You'll love the the connection to nature, the well equipped kitchen, lovely patio and comfortable beds. Casa Espavel was built in early 2017. It is designed for living in concert with nature and is perfect for a group of friends or families traveling together. 

Casa Espavel and 5 other villas share the peaceful grounds, glorious pool, river access and bird's nest yoga space of Villas Espavel, which is only a 5 to 10-minute walk to the beach and town. We designed Casa Espavel to live in concert with nature. One side of the house opens to the jungle with four garage doors allowing you to watch the monkeys, birds and butterflies from any room. The house has great natural ventilation and powerful ceiling fans. 

Enjoy cooking and eating in Casa Espavel's well equipped kitchen and relaxing on the patio and balcony. Upstairs are 3 comfortable bedrooms. There is a dining table for 8 on the patio, a table for four in the kitchen and all the amenities of home in the kitchen, including an induction cooktop, large refrigerator and freezer and a dishwasher. On the patio is an additional four burner gas stove and an oven. 

There are comfortable chairs and hammocks for relaxing on the patio and balcony. The powder room is on the ground floor off of the living room. All three bedrooms have queen beds with amazing mattresses, comfortable pillows, reading lights, shelves. The first bedroom has its own bathroom with a walk-in shower. The second and third bedrooms share a bathroom also with a walk-in shower and double sinks. The third bedroom has a queen bed as well as two fun single loft beds for kids or playful adults. Both bathrooms have ample space for your toiletries. We have powerful ceiling fans throughout the house to keep you cool. There is a washer and dryer on the bedroom level of the house as well as a combination safe for your valuables. All the windows have window screens and security bars.

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.
