Villa Selva is one of 6 Villas on the Villas Espavel property. All 6 Villas share the glorious pool, river access, outdoor living room and tree top yoga space. 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.
Villa Selva is a 1 bed/1 bathroom second floor apartment with a well-equipped kitchen and a large outside balcony. The bedroom has air conditioning, an orthopedic queen mattress, comfortable pillows, reading lights, shelves, clothes hanging space and a combination safe for your valuables. The bathroom has a large shower with hot water and space for your toiletries
The covered balcony is 15 feet x 8 feet (5 meters x 2.5 meters), complete with a dining table, rocking chairs, and a hammock. In the kitchen there’s a 4-burner electric stove and all the kitchen implements you’ll need to prepare beautiful meals. There are 3 powerful ceiling fans and air conditioning to keep you cool; one over the bed, one in the kitchen/living area and another on the balcony.
We spend most of our time outside and I bet you will too. A favorite pass-time is swinging in the hammock or rocking in the teak rocking chairs while looking at the green jungle beyond the railing.
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 9 year old boy and 7 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 The Plum. 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.
