casa de las palmas
Welcome to Casa de Las Palmas
You are invited to discover one of the most appealing properties in all of the province of Guanacaste in Costa Rica.
Casa de Las Palmas is a hilltop residence overlooking the Pacific Ocean and lies just outside the picturesque village of Samara.
With a breathtaking panoramic indestructible view from the hill, overlooking both Samara and Buena Vista, this unique two level luxury home with 3 bedrooms and an apartment/guest house is perfect. It offers all this in a very private atmosphere with landscaped gardens.
The property because of its location and terrain is ideally suited for development. Cascading condominiums and/or guest cottages in front and/or apartments behind the main house would be possible for great income potential. The principal residence could be utilized as a private home or as a Bed and Breakfast.
The completely walled gardens would provide security for all guests. Abundant water supply, electricity to the back of the property and the imminently available high speed internet indeed make it a developer’s dream. Ample room for parking and pool without disturbing the view of the principal home.
It is only a 3-minute scenic drive to either the village shops or its many miles of white sand beach, with its graceful coconut palms and protective coral reef.
Samara, long prized by Costa Rica's native population for its idyllic beauty and magnificent turquoise bay, now is a favorite destination of discriminating North American and European visitors. Many of these visitors have come to stay and call Samara their home.
The village is ringed by verdant mountains filled with tropical birds, monkeys, frisky red squirrels, and other fascinating wildlife. Small colorful fishing boats sail out to sea and friendly Indian ponies glide home along the beach at sunset.
