The space

Beautiful, modern home, high on a hill with gorgeous views of mountains and ocean. Very private place to immerse yourself in nature. Enjoy a glass of wine in the infinity pool, which you can walk right into from the living area or master suite, or cook gourmet meals while you view the mountains, birds, and monkeys. The yoga deck on top is a truly amazing place to practice yoga, get creative and recharge your creative juices, or get a massage from a very gifted therapist. There are other sun decks for laying in the sun or shade to relax.
The location offers a real experience of serenity, being in nature while living in elegance and being close enough to town and the beach to access all of the wonderful conveniences Playa Samara has to offer.
The house is full of paintings and glass art installations done by the owner for your pleasure and or purchase. It is like living in a gallery in the middle of the forest. If you love elegance, art, yoga, bliss and/or serenity, this is the place for you!
The beaches which are close by are Samara and Carrillo Beach which were both named as the most beautiful beaches in Central America. Both are amazing! You will want a car while here preferably a four wheel drive. There is public transport if you do not want a car but we are about a 10 minute drive from town. There are many fabulous restaurants in Samara as well as Nosara which is a 30 minute drive.

The view from the pool was amazing. The location was so serene and the sounds of all of the birds and the howler monkeys made this home that much more special

This is a serene, quiet location with an absolutely wonderful view. Great for a group of adults because each of the three bedrooms has it's own bathroom - a nice feature. A very functional kitchen. The pool and yoga roof are both amazing. It's about a $15USD cab ride, 10 minute d…

Staying at Casa Candelitas was the perfect balance between being confident that everything was taken care of, and being left to do our own thing. The house itself is beautiful and peaceful. We were 3 adults and one 9 year old. Having our own pool was wonderful and meant we rea…

Our stay at Casa Candelitas was memorable. Staying in that house is an experience in itself. Everything has been built putting in front art, nature and yoga. We really appreciated the pool next to the commun area, taking a glass of wine or read a book at the sunset on the deck at…

We had an amazing stay at Deanne's. The house is wonderful, and so is the pool, particularly at sunset. The roof is also a great spot for bird-watching! Would recommend.

Response from Deanne:
Linda, I am so glad you had such a wonderful time however not surprised, it is really a magic place. When I first visited the empty lot, in the early evening, it was absolutely full of fire flies, hence the name Candelitas (little candles) and I knew it was where I wanted to build my dream home/creative retreat. I am so happy to share it now with others so they can have that experience. I hope you come back and you of course are welcome anytime!!!
