Overview

About the property

2 buildings, 3 Bedrooms Main house, 2 bedrooms Apt, 4 1/2 Baths, Sleeps 12 Max

Villa Oasis is located within a 10 minute walking distance to the

boats, Playa Carrillo beach, hotels, restaurants and stores. Playa Carrillo is located 90 feet above sea level and there is a walk down to the beach and a very steep back up to the house. Nestled at the end of a

cul de sac, there is also privacy, affording a very secure feeling,

and no noises from the main two lane, road located 350 meters away..

Samara downtown is a 6 minute drive from the Villa.

We recommend having a car.

The Villa has 5 bedrooms, 3 are located in the main house and 2 are located in the apartment. The main bedroom has a King size bed, the second bedroom has a queen size and the third bedroom has two twin beds. The apartment has 2 bedrooms with 2 queen size beds each. Located in the middle of the main house and the apartment their is a very large swimming pool with a waterfall pleasantly gurgling down

the rocks. The two separate buildings have an unobstructed view of a lush, tropical

jungle setting and 3 different balconies to admire the forest.

A large garden area affords ample privacy.

The location is both quiet and private, where the only sounds you hear are the monkeys, birds and bubbling water.

It has a spacious living room and dining area that flows inward from the patio overlooking the jungle and pool to the open kitchen area.

Closed off from this is the family room. Leading off of the family

room are two bedrooms and a bath, and the master bedroom with it’s own

bath, walk in closet and outside private porch. Also situated off the

family room is a large room with its own entrance for storage. The

buildings were built in 2001 and the type of construction is very specious and open with very high ceilings with large terraces to experience nature and very clean air.

All the ceilings are done with Mahogany wood; the main living area has

a 22 ft ceiling, while the family room boasts 24ft ceilings with

ventilation, creating a very open and spacious atmosphere.

Situated in an area that many consider one of the most prolific marlin

fishing areas in the world, Puerto Carrillo is a small unobtrusive

community that has been playing host to some of the most well renown

sport fishing boats in the world, since its discovery as a billfish

destination over 15 years ago. The small town boasts several hotels,

fine restaurants, stores, a small airstrip with daily service to San

Jose, and one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. The tiny

harbor affords protection to a small handful of charter and private

boats that are here on permanent bases.

The beautiful white sand beach it's popular with swimmers and it's an

ideal beach for your kids.

About JACQUELINE MORA

I was born in San Jose, Costa Rica in 1974, my family is from the Guanacaste area. I was very lucky growing up in both places, the beach and the city.

We have been in the rental business for the last 13 years to provide lodging services for our Sport-fishing clientele in Playa Carrillo/Playa Samara area. We have a son and a daughter that go to school in San Jose and they both come home on the weekends and spend all their holidays here with us!

We've had the Sportfishing Operation for the last 20 years in Playa Carrillo. Please visit our website of Kingfisher Sportfishing in Playa Carrillo

We love doing yoga at the beach, surfing, fishing, hiking, traveling, playing music, we enjoy good wine, cooking, baking, mountain biking, ocean kayaking.

We absolute LOVE living here in Playa Carrillo! It has been a blessing to have found this little place in Paradise.

This Place Is Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for five nights from July 21 to the 26th. It's a big, beautiful home that has a fantastic pool. It's a short drive to Playa Carillo beach and walking distance to a few restaurants. Jackie is a great host and helped with some good recommendations. The house has a housekeeper named Mirta who is very nice and makes a great breakfast. We were very happy to stay in this house. The only downside is that we are now spoiled and the accomodations for the rest of our trip won't match up to what we had. A+

Beautiful Community in Playa Carillo, Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

Located just a few minutes south from Samara, Playa Carillo is a Costa Rican jewel. The beautiful bay, just 3 minutes from the home, is lined with palm trees and has a variety of waves, the north side better for families, and the south side having a bit stronger waves. The homes are large and comfortable. We enjoyed our morning coffee in the pool hearing the howler monkeys, and took an evening dip after a long day of sightseeing or beach days. All bedrooms have good a/c, so you are very comfortable at night. Unfortunately there is no a/c in the living areas, so hanging out at night and cooking in the kitchen was hot. Still we found the home amazing, comfortable, and very safe. The absolute BEST thing was Mirtha, the sweet woman who took care of us during our stay. Each morning she prepared a lovely breakfast, everyday something different-and her pancakes are the best in the world-no syrup needed! We'd come home to a clean house, our laundry washed and folded, and we felt very pampered! It was fun to sit on the huge porch at night and watch the electrical storms in the distance. Nocera is about 30 minutes away in the wet season, much closer in the dry season when the river is crossable. However, we found that Playa Carillo was the absolute best beach. We're touring the west coast this trip, and we are so happy we began in this location. There are wonderful restaurants just up the street, the Tacos Y Tapas restaurant had pizza, burgers, and delicious fresh fish selections too, and the Iguana Verde bakery in Samara supplied us with endless loaves of fresh french bread and some very awesome empanadas-an absolute must recommended by the owners. Speaking of the owners, they are wonderful, live nearby, and were very attentive to every request. We will stay there again and will return to Playa Carillo and the Villa Oasis someday soon! Pura Vida!!! Thanks Jackie!

Loved the property. It is beautiful but the owner and staff made the trip.

  • 5 of 5

Couldn’t have asked for a better 70th birthday. House was wonderful pool beautiful and the birds and howler monkeys that visited just outside our fence were a real treat. Jacque

Worked so hard arranging our day trips and even an overnight one to the volcano. Her husband took some of the party fishing and tuna, marlin and large dolphins were caught. The breakfast was to die for and Marta was wonderful to us; even packing sandwichs for a 6AM departure. We had a 5 year old with us and she had sand toys and a boogie board to play with on the beautiful beachs. I could go but if you don’t rent this house, you have missed a wonderful trip

Amazing place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I booked my stay based off of the great reviews of this property, and the great TripAdvisor reviews of Jackie and Rick who also run Kingfisher Sportfishing. I was looking for a place to celebrate my 40th birthday with 4 buddies and wanted to find some great Marlin fishing as well as a beautiful place to stay in Costa Rica. I had never traveled to Costa Rica but overall the reviews of the country were very high, and after careful research, I settled on Villa Oasis as the place to stay, and Kingfisher Sportfighing to find us some fish!

All of my buddies thought the pictures of Villa Oasis looked amazing, but I was still slightly afraid that we would show up and find out we had been tricked, as it was out of the country and I had to trust online reviews. Instead, we showed up and were immediately sure we had made the right choice! The property was exactly what we were hoping for, the pool and outdoor bar were awesome, the kitchen was perfect for cooking, and the sleeping accommodations were great. There were plenty of clean beds, and 3 of the rooms had big bathrooms with walk in showers.

Several reviews I read during my research spoke of the high level of service and friendliness of Jackie, Rick and their staff, and we definitely experienced that. Throughout our stay Jackie made many reservations and called cabs for us, and gave us multiple recommendations on restaurants to try, and places to explore. Her advice was spot on, and the Argentinian steak house El Colibri just up the street was our favorite place to eat, as well as La Garta in Samara. There were several other places within walking distance to try, but we enjoyed those places so much it was hard to branch out. One of my favorite parts of the trip were the awesome breakfasts Mirta made every morning on the back porch, listening to the birds and howler monkeys in the jungle, with a nice breeze blowing, while drinking good coffee.

Jackie was incredibly thoughtful and she and Rick even surprised us one evening with an amazing birthday cake, and my 40th birthday trip could not have been any better. I will definitely be returning here in the future, and I wholeheartedly recommend the Villa Oasis to anyone considering staying here.
