- SQM 40
Palma is a short walk from Samara’s beach, restaurants and nightlife. It includes AC, a great patio, handcrafted furniture, fast WIFI and a comfortable bed. Enjoy cooking in the well-equipped kitchen. Palma shares the beautiful pool and grounds of Villas Espavel, which nestles 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. Palma is good for couples and individuals.
Enjoy each night's sleep in luscious coolness with your air conditioned bedroom and orthopedic mattress. There is a complete outdoor kitchen for preparing lovely meals. The ample patio is perfect for relaxing under the powerful ceiling fan.
Palma is one of 6 Villas on the peaceful grounds of Villas Espavel. All 6 Villas share the glorious pool, river access, outdoor living room, barbeque grill 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.
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.
Villas Espavel is very secure as the property is hidden away behind a gate down a long driveway. All the windows have window screens and security bars.
You will see our managers Tano & Johannah, our head cleaner, Magali, and our gardener, Caliche, onsite a few days per week. If you have questions while you settle in, you can reach Johannah or Mercy & Canuche by WhatsApp. We have a washer available if you need one during your stay.

We're an active family with a 10 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 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.
