A great time
Carrillo is a gem. You won't regret going there. It's 5-8 minutes from busier but not as nice Samara, so you are minutes from all the touristy stuff, but kind of secluded from that. The beach, every day but one, was almost empty, and the water was warm and clear.
Wonderful tropical paradise!
Beautiful home, view, crystal clear ocean, great restaurants. The home is private and secluded while being close to Carrillo and Samara.
Breath taking views and amazing wildlife from this worn-out (in need of maintenance) home
We loved the view, the pool was very therapeutic, the location was perfect, the wildlife and insects were abundant and Isa (the house keeper) was supportive, thorough and on time. Long story short... there are multiple screens that had holes or hanging/broken screens- four days after reporting this (and the multiple reported insect invasion in the home) to Isa and Home owner- some of the screens were fixed, but not all! The owner (very responsive to emails) kept telling us “it’s a jungle”... “it’s CR”...”leave all lights off and doors/windows shut from dusk to dawn daily”...
The issue we had was there is no reason to have tarantula/s, a scorpion, poisonous spiders, centipedes, let alone all of the variation in ants... in the home while you are wanting to walk around indoors or sleep! Most of the exterior doors have huge (up to 2 inches) gaps between them and the floors, holes/broken screens,gaps in exterior walls and broken/missing/non-functioning window shutters. We booked this place for 9 days and ended up staying 4 nights there🤨� After the first two nights of no sleep, waking up with spiders/ants in the bed and a rash of unknown origin we stayed at other BNB (example...Sunset- right next door) & hotels atleast every other night to get sleep/rest. All of the other four places we stayed were absolutely bug free at night. Most of those places had air conditioning but all of them had no holes in screens, snug doors, working shutters and were routinely treated for insects. We would just sleep other places and go back to the house during day light hours.
With that being said we thought the Home could be amazing with routine upkeep and immediate repairs and treatments.
While we were at the house we were able to see howler and white face monkeys, iguanas, multiple birds, coates families and some of the most beautiful sunsets...
We would recommend this place, in the future, if you are open to be with all types of insects or if they put some deep TLC in it. Note- no working safe either.
We plan to go back to Costa Rica routinely... we have some amazing memories and love everything about there.
I’m sorry but that is just not true. Two glowing reviews from the two previous renters should prove that. We had repairs done as soon as someone could come—2 days. We do not believe in using poisons to kill harmless insects. But the house is in the Jungle and open with screens. A few bugs are inevitable and it is Costa Rica. Be assured, no one else in 22 years has even mentioned insects as a problem! These folks were just paranoid about insects. The housekeeper thought they were crazy!’
Also, there is a family there now who has rented the house twice a year for several years and we have NEVER heard anything like this. The previous renters used every one of our good towels--that then had to be washed--to cover every window in the house at night. That is just crazy behavior. Our housekeeper and our accountant, who came over to see if there was a problem, both thought they were crazy. And I think the previous reviews show that it is truly a lovely place, not run down or dirty.
One of the Best Views in Carrillo!
We stayed at the Mitchell house for the first two weeks of February 2018. The house was spacious and very comfortable for five adults. We spent lots of time in and around the pool, enjoying the view and listening to the endless surf, howler monkeys and beautiful birds. At night the stars were spectacular..It was the perfect location form which to take advantage of all the activities, sites and sounds that Carrillo and Samara has to offer. We highly recommend this piece of Paradise in Costa Rica.
Hi Jeffrey--Thanks so much for adding a review. It means a lot to us that you liked our home enough to share your feelings and I'm glad you enjoyed it as much as we do.
Spacious, comfortable, well equipped in the kitchen
Love the open air and view from the pool deck. Spent plenty of time in the living room watching all the birds. Delightful to have regular house cleaning. Our fourth stay - that says it all.
Hi Alan and Jenny--I'm so glad you enjoyed our paradise again and we are all delighted that you wanted to come back. You are almost like family now!! I hope you will come again.
A Wonderful Costa Rican Experience!
The home was large and comfortable. The three bathrooms were appreciated by the seven of us. The location was the best. A one minute drive to Carrillo beach, or a five minute walk.
Just outside the house, we saw Howler monkeys, White Face Capuchin monkeys, a pair of Scarlet Macaws, and a Coati. Inside the house we found a Tarantula! We scooped him up and let him go, outside. The only downside is the ants were abundant in the kitchen, and not having air conditioning at night for sleeping. The ceiling fans were helpful. We loved the deep and shallow pool! Isa the housekeeper came every second day.
Playa Carrillo ligt drie mijl ten zuiden van Samara op een van de mooiste stranden van Costa Rica. Het strand is een groot hoefijzer omzoomd met kokospalmen met een rotsachtige landtong aan elk uiteinde. Er is geen commerciële ontwikkeling op het strand die bijdraagt aan de natuurlijke schoonheid. Het is in de provincie Guanacaste aan de noordelijke Pacifische kust in een gebied dat tot nu toe is niet overontwikkeld en nog steeds de prachtige natuurlijke schoonheid zonder appartementen en golfbanen. U bent zeker om papegaaien, brulapen, leguanen, kikkers en vele soorten vogels en andere dieren te zien. Het is de perfecte plek om te ontspannen, maar er is genoeg te doen als je wilt wagen. Er zijn paarden, een zip line, surfen, zwemmen, snorkelen, vissen (een aantal van de beste sportvissen in Costa Rica) en korte dag charters die vissen in de buurt om te landen. Als u besluit te verhuren huis, zal ik u een gedetailleerde lijst van dingen te doen en plaatsen om te gaan sturen.
