Incredible Modern Villa with Breath Taking Ocean Views

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I along with another couple (all in our 30s) stayed at Villa Amore for a week and a half. However amazing, the photos of the villa do not do it justice. We were all blown away seeing it in person.

It was a pleasure dealing with George during every aspect of our vacation. He really went out of his way to make sure that we were clear about all aspects of the rental, had everything we needed and was extremely quick to respond to any inquiry we had.

The views of the ocean are absolutely incredible. There's amazing wild life all around you. We saw monkeys, parrots, armadillos, dophins and more. You're able to hear the waves crashing, which is really relaxing. The immediate area offers a lot of great natural hiking trails. The fishing was great as well.

The villa is in a really great, quite area and only a few minutes drive from the gorgeous beach Carillo and about 15 minute drive from Samara, which is a nice little beach town, with some excellent beach front restaurants.

The caretakers, Alex and Jenny are incredibly nice and friendly and were a huge help to us when booking various excursions. The breakfasts they prepared every morning was a delightful treat.

I can't say enough good things about the host, villa and country. We will absolutely be back again.

Amazing Vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a awesome stay at the villa. We travelled with two children under age of 10 and 3 adults. The place was perfect for us with a very short drive to two amazing beaches (Samara and Carrillo). The pool, outdoor living space, kitchen and the outdoor eating area were perfect, and we enjoyed out outdoor meals everyday. We brought in with us floating chairs for the pool, which we used daily while watching the sunsets and relaxing. We would definitely go back to the same house in the future. We will cherish our memories there for years to come.

Stunning Grounds and Unbelievable Views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Villa Amore for 8night with our 8mo old daughter, two of our best friends and my 22yr old stepdaughter and her best friend. We had a range of ages and everyone said this place was perfect for us. The bedrooms are clean, yet sparse and there were complaints about the sheets on one of the beds being very rough. However, the outdoor common areas are exceptional and where we spent most of our time, so while there may have been some disappointment in the bedrooms, it was far outweighed by the rest of the gorgeous property. The kitchen is gorgeous and one of the main reasons we booked the home as we were traveling with a few cooks. For a rental property, it was fairly well equipped in terms of kitchen utensils and gadgets. As another guest said, anything we need was available nearby in Samara. Our favorite thing was going to the fisherman every afternoon to purchase his fresh catch of the day - we grilled lobster tails, tons of red snapper, whole octopus, etc. The caretaker, Alex, is an incredibly kind and generous resource for anything you need and can direct you to the fisherman's home. Alex also helped us book massages at the house, which was a real treat. The house is very remote, which was exactly what we wanted, but we strongly suggest you plan to arrive before sundown - it was a challenge finding the house for the first time when we arrived after dark and in the rain. Once you know where you're going, it's easy to navigate the area. We loved that we would walk straight from the house to some amazing hiking areas and tide pools. The place is a dream and we hope to return one day!

Amazing Villa with Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

My fiancée and I stayed at Villa Amore for 2 weeks and we loved every minute of it. The rooms were very nice and clean, and anything we needed was refreshed. The kitchen was also quite exceptional. The town near by (Samara) had everything we needed and the kitchen wasn't lacking of anything. The pool was definitely the highlight for us. Floating around watching the sunset past the horizon never got old. The ocean was also nearby, where we got a chance to do some surfing and paddle boarding. Overall, an amazing Villa and trip.

Heaven on Earth - Best Place to do Yoga in Guanacaste

  • 5 of 5

This villa is beautiful, all amenities are top of the line, the beds are so comfy, and I love love love the kitchen. Being a yogi and fitness fanatic I wanted to find a place where I can deeply relax but also challenge myself when I want to work out. Morning runs on the jungle trail are amazing! Take a stop at the pebble beach it's unreal, so beautiful and peaceful, and then a final relaxation at the pool and deck, so rewarding. A breathtaking view anytime of the day, and I would say the best sunsets I have ever seen in the World. Food is available at the close by town of Samara where you'll find the best tropical fruits and veggies, rice, fresh eggs, beans and all the staples. The team at Villa Amore are very helpful and are always if there's anything you need. Surfing and fun activities can be found near by and you'll never run out of things to do. But the best part is the peace and quiet at the end of night. The sound of the ocean and jungle is the most soothing. I'm in love and I will definetly be back soon for some more R&R. Thanks George and Isabella for such an amazing expierence!!

Place in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful villa, overlooking the pacific ocean. The villa was clean, specious, with everything we needed for this vacation. The (L) shaped infinity salt water pool is another spectacular feature of this villa where everyone in the family enjoyed. The rooms were specious, clean, and had its own 3 piece bathrooms. Everyday, we walk-up with the truckling of the tropical birds the relaxing ocean noise and to make it more interesting, we also were lucky to meet a family of white face monkeys on the tropical rain forest close by the villa. In reality, the photos on the website don't justify what you see and you experience in real life. The villa also id 5 minutes drive from the beautiful Carrillo beach, where we have also enjoyed swimming and walking on the beach. Alex and Jenny where very helpful and pleasant, from our arrival to departure. This was a real enjoyable and memorable vacation that we were treasure it for long time to come. We will definitely share this experience with our families and close friends, and will try to make it back. Lastly, we would like to thank the owners George and Isabella for giving us the opportunity, especially the responsiveness we received during the booking process was outstanding.

Thank you Joe and Lori
