This is the 2nd beautiful 2bdrm /1 bath, house on the north side of the property. It has a more Local Tico/Costa Rican feel to it. Both houses 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).
- Purified drinking water
- Hot water
- Washer & Dryer
- 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.
Casa del halcón 2 was a great place to stay at! The value was very good, and the place was nice and clean. We had lots of space for a family of 4. The porch with a big table and 2 hammocks was a very nice place to relax and cool down.
The pool was refreshing and the vegetation offered privacy.
Chris lives right next door so it was very convenient if we had any questions. He was also there to help us out with a few things, like a dead car and booking a surfing class with a great teacher.
I would go back anytime. Pura vida !
My husband and I had a fabulous stay at the Casa de Halcon2! We had two friends with us and plenty of room for 4 adults. The pool was lovely although we did most of our swimming at the beach, it was so beautiful. Great setting with lots of wildlife, we saw a big iguana, an armadillo, many geckos and interesting birds right from our patio. The kitchen is well equipped if you want to cook at home but we ate out most of the time.
Chris was very helpful, would come by regularly to check in and make sure we were comfortable. He had great recommendations of restaurants and things to do nearby. He is a very friendly and personable host and a great resource.
Many fabulous restaurants in Samara! It's a short drive or bike ride to town and to beaches. Grocery store and great bakery just down the road. Samara is a small town but has all the amenities you need, very laid back. Always felt safe even when out walking around town at night.
Would definitely plan another stay here!
Home is where the heart is. And at Casa del Halcon in beautiful Samara, my husband and I felt lat home. Chris is a very caring, special soul who contributes a positive energy to this amazing place.
Don't hesitate to visit during the rainy season. I visited in August of 2013 and found sun and beach during the first part of the day and a refreshing rain - carrying with it the power to renew our spirit - during the later part of the day.
After staying in hostels for 1 week with 3 teenagers, it felt great to be at la Casa del Halcon 2. The place is comfortable even for 5, got a great kitchen and is very well decorated and comfortable. It's got a nice pool and is surrounded by trees and flowers. It's 5-10 mins drive to Samara's beach. The shower could us a little scrub, but that's from our North American standards ;)! It was a great stat!
Nous avons vécu une expérience authentique costaricaine dans cette charmante maison. Notre séjour dans cette petite jungle fut dépaysant, relaxant et nous a permis de revenir à l'essentiel. La piscine fut très appréciée au lever et au retour de la plage. La plage de Samara est absolument magnifique, la promenade pour s'y rendre est agréable, 10 minutes à vélo. Nos garçons de 4 et 7 ans embarquaient avec nous sur nos vélos et c'était le bonheur. La maison est propre, confortable et en toute simplicité. Chris fut très accueillant et il nous a laissé toute l'information nécessaire pour passer un séjour agréable. Nous recommandons sans aucune hésitation, un séjour dans ce petit coin de paradis à La casa Del Halcon 2!
We have just spent a month at Chris place in Samara, a beautiful and charming house right in the outskirts of the village. When we sum our stay up there are both good and less good stuff we want to mention. Lets start with the less good so we can round up with the positive!
The distance to the beaches. There are two beaches that are close, but they were hard for us to get to with two small children. Very steep and up-hill/down-hill. For us, with the kids, the easiest was to bike to Playa Samara which was about 10 min bike-ride, or a little bit longer if we wanted to hit the beach in the village of Samara.
The pool was really not that nice when we were there. It was very small and dirty. Chris talked about changing the pump-system of the pool which is really needed. We had looked forward to have a pool where we lived, but we ended up using the pool at the hotel Pacific Lodge about 5 min away instead. The pool was a disappointment...
Chris himself! A very nice and warm man who was very helpful to us whenever we needed (website hidden) Chris provided a baby-crib for us which was very appreciated!!
The two bikes that we borrowed from Chris during our whole stay. We also rented a small bike-waggon in Samara for our kids to ride in, so that worked out really well!!
The house is very nice, as is the interior design. Very stylish, yet simple Costa Rican touch. We liked it!
It also felt like a secure neighbourhood! It was close to the grocery store, a small café and the local pub.
All in all we had a good stay at Casa Del Halcon, so thank you Chris!
Very nice spot and helpful people.
