About this listing
This is the 2nd beautiful 2bdrm /1 bath, house on the north side of the property.
Both homes are on a quarter acre of lush jungle land with the pool in the back between them. It is located between 3 amazing beaches all within 5 mins away (Including town).
- Washer , Spinner & Clothes lines
- Covered Patio
- 2 Bicycles to cruz around town and beaches (More available)
- Also has a semi private beach out back (Approx 5min walk).
- Grocery Store 3 mins away (Also Delivers)
- Dentist 3 mins away (great prices and quality work)
- Pablitos Soda 3 mins away (Samara's #1 Local Pub/Restaurant)
- Amazing neighborhood with a real sense of community (Awesome neighbors).
I live on the property in a beautiful treehouse outback and am a certified Hatha Yoga instructor, so private classes can also be integrated into your stay.
Please no smoking in the house. We are on a sceptic system so throwing as little paper down the toilet as possible. And showering to clean off any oils before entering the pool.
Have Fun ;)
We had an unforgettable stay in Samara! Chris was a great host that made our time even more memorable. The house is in a great spot in Samara - far enough from the main strip to experience the real local flavor yet close enough for a night out on the town. We had a 3-year old with us so we ended up using the car to go to the beach and into town but we did bike one day and it would be our preferred method of transportation if we didn't have to worry about kids. The "secret" beach is a 15-20 minute walk away and is not to be missed. Same with the rocky beach with a small cave - left out of the house and then another left towards the ocean when you reach the river. The house is basic (no hot water, no AC) but it's comfortable and just feels like an "authentic" Costa Rican experience. On this trip we stayed in a couple of million-dollar homes (infinity pools, ocean views, volcano views etc) but Chris' place was still a highlight of our time in Costa Rica.
Casa Halcon was extremely relaxing, and had everything we could have asked for. Chris was wonderful, attentive and helpful with anything we asked him. The location was perfect, and the house quite beautiful. We would gladly stay there again on our next trip to Samara.
Chris welcomed us and showed us the house. The house is definitely a beach house, very rustic and basic. The bedrooms were spacious but some of the bedsheets were stained. The bathroom was a nice size. The kitchen hardly had any supplies and the shelves were unkempt. The house had a nice environment, with beautiful trees and plants all around . The pool should be listed as a small "cool-off" pool - not a regular pool for actual swimming. It came in handy when it got hot. It is nice for a casual couple or a couple of guys, but difficult for a family. There were ants and bugs on the floor maybe because the doors were open to nature. But my children did not like the bugs and sometimes they were bit at night. The outdoor area with hammocks and a grill was cozy and we made full use of it. It is very close to town, local restaurants and bodegas so it's practical and easy. The host had a dog that visited a lot and that made us feel at home because we left a dog back home.
Hmmmm...I'm a little confused as every time I came by and asked if you needed anything or if everything was all right you responded with "yes it's great , thank you" ?... I would have been more than happy to change your sheets if there was something about them bothering you. If the kitchen was missing something you needed I would have found it as sometimes with three homes things get moved around when friends visit...lol.. Sorry about that :)
We had a wonderful time at Casa Del Halcon, we miss it already and would love to go back. Chris was very welcoming, super helpful with any questions we had. A great host, with the most wonderful dog too! The garden is beautiful, we spent quite a bit of time at the house, reading in the hammock, cooking, listening to music and seeing animals, including iguanas, a monkey and more. We were really grateful for the bikes as well, it allowed us to easily discover the areas around Samara. Thank you Chris.
Chris' place is a little gem located in the outskirts of playa Samara; from there it is very easy to get to town and more importantly to the beautiful beaches around!
Chris is very subtle and full of good tips for things to do in the area; we loved every minute of our stay with him; highly recommended for a true costa rican experience!

About the Host, Chris
My name is Chris Hawk (Most friends call me Hawk). I'm originally from Canada but have been traveling extensively for the past 18yrs. I moved to Samara in 2012 and am very happy with this choice. Samara is a wonderful town with an incredible vibe where the locals, ex-pats and tourists all mingle effortlessly.
I am a certified hatha yoga instructor and was working with an addictions retreat center here before finding this amazing property. I am open to working with anyone that would like yoga, pranayama (yogic breathing) or meditation classes.
Wishing you an amazing adventure in samara - HAWK
