Playa Samara, Province of Guanacaste
Casa Candelitas is a beautifully crafted modern house in a very private, serene environment, perfect for nourishing your creative spirit and deepening your connection to nature. Designed by well known Light Sculpture Artist, Deanne Sabeck and architect Erik Reise, it is a place of amazing tranquility and natural vibrance with the specific intent of stimulating both your creative endeavors and your yoga/meditation practice. With a very open design and zen feel, the house opens fully to both the ocean, over the infinity pool, and the mountains viewed from the kitchen. You can literally walk out of both the master bedroom and living areas into the pool and view the mountains, along with a large variety of birds, monkeys and various other creatures, while you cook up a fantastic meal in the gourmet kitchen. The yoga deck is on top with a... Read more

Clean Home, Good views of the mountains will need a 4x4 car to reach the house .... We enjoyed being a bit away from town and it was easer to travel to other spots along the coast ... Great cross breeze when you opened up the house

Staying at Casa Candelitas over New Year's with my family was a wonderful experience. The house is a work of art, with an impressive attention to detail throughout. Deanne clearly poured her heart into making this house, and it's a stunning representation of her creativity. From the time of booking, Deanne was very professional and straightforward in her communication. The...

We stayed in Casa Candelitas for a week with two kids aged 7 and 10. It was our perfectly comfortable, spacious base for exploring the beaches around Playa Samara. The house feels light and airy. The kitchen / living room extending straight into the pool with great views of the Pacific a couple of miles away was our favorite spot...

About the neighbourhood
The location of the house is high on a hill about 10 minutes outside of the town of Samara with spectacular views of the beach and surrounding mountains. It is close enough to town to be convenient yet out of the noise and energy of the town. It is very private, quiet and serene, a REAL experience of the Costa Rican natural environment. It is not really in a tourist area but a very authentic Costa Rican village. There is a beautiful river to walk to, lots of bird and monkey watching, amazing yoga deck with 360 degree views, cycling, horseback riding is very convenient.
