Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay at Mike's lovely place in samara , Costa Rica was an unreal experience. This condo is close to the beach and town! The place is clean, well maintained and comfortable. It was the perfect space for a beach vacation. It was easy to locate and the property management team on site were fantastic and helpful. This is definitely a great spot in samara and mike was great to deal with! Would go back!!

  • 4 of 5
Our family of 4 (2 adults, and 2 teens) stayed at this condo during Easter week, 2015. The listing is very accurate, and working with Mike, the owner, was a breeze!

We were greeted by Nick, the property manager, who couldn't have been more helpful getting us situated and telling us about the condo and the town. He was always available (by cell) if we had any questions or issues, and he was professional and fast with his responses.

The condo is good sized and easily accommodated our family, and the location is superb. It is a short walk down some steps to the beach, and also a short walk into town. The pool is beautiful, uncrowded and clean. Great place to hang out for a while, or whole day, if so inclined.

We would recommend staying at this place for all the reasons I listed!! Samara is a great, uncrowded place, that feels like true Costa Rica. We Zip Lined with the Wing Nuts company (Great fun in the dry tropical forest), and did a dolphin tour and I took my son fishing with a local, and had success catching jack, tuna and snapper.

we stayed at this wonderful condo with the most amazing views for one week. the property was advertised accurately and held true to its homeaway listing. the local property manager, nick, was reliable and welcoming with great - helpful communication. the walk to the beach was short and yes....hilly. but its costa rica and the condo is specifically-strategically located on the hillside which gives the breath-taking views. we saw the colorful sunsets and amazing light shows with a few evening storms that mother nature brought our way - a clear fresh morning view of samara beach. the pool was clean and not crowded (we only saw a father and his 2 kids one morning the entire week we were there)....also has an amazing view. we love-loved was a great mix of a beautiful beach and local flare. we enjoyed swimming in the ocean at high and low tide (body surfing and boogie boarding), did a local zipline with ocean views, waterfall hikes-swims 10-20 minutes inland, dinned at local eateries, enjoyed happy hour drinks beachside, and made a few trips to the quieter sister beach called carrillo. and we feel like we just scratched the surface of costa rica. we highly recommend enjoying beachside tacos at lo que hay and stopping in the samara-carrillo info to chris! he is very nice-helpful and will give you honest and accurate advise/recommends or book tours with no pressure! we enjoyed evening happy hours at gusto with the yummy drinks and inviting ambience (beachside). we had a delicious dinner at casa esmerlada and a flavorful lunch at the natural center. another MUST: cafe rosa which is about 15 mins from samara on the road going to/from the liberia airport (nicoya)....amazing views with delicious fresh farm fish raised by the owner! i would have to disagree with the previous (most recent) review. its not a 5-star all-inclusive type of place or location (samara is a beach town with lots of friendly locals) but i dont think that is what it is advertised as and why we picked this spot specifically. we wanted a true costa rican experience and that is what we got. we are looking forward to returning to costa rica and would (without hesitation) recommend this property and location to friends and family.
pura vida!

So many beaches so little time! The condo was great with plenty of room and nicely equipped.
There is so much to explore from Samara and so many places to eat at with in a short walk.
The pool is a great place to cool off and relax after a fun full day of beach and adventure. People are very friendly everywhere you go in Costa Rica. We had the best time and couldn't have asked for a better valve!

A real nice place to stay in Samara,

Amazing view and a perfect location!
Walking distance of everything in Samara and a short drive to amazing beach up north or down south.
The condo is accessible by paved road form every major town and this is a real time saver when traveling in Costa Rica.

We use the condo as one of our center point of visiting Guanacaste coast.
Staff was really friendly and helpful.

The only thing that could make this place even better is to add the laundry machine in the condo that is already set-up for.

Thanks for the experience!

The views from this condominium are the best in all of Samara. Just high enough up a hill to get a panoramic view, but still close enough to here the surf.The unit was spacious and comfortable. We enjoyed the reliable internet service, the friendly staff, and the lovely pool. Even though this is supposed to be the early part of the rainy season, we only experienced two short rains in the evening which only lasted around thirty minutes. No problem. Thanks for sharing your home with us.

When can we go back?

Please excuse the delay in leaving a review for your wonderful condo! No offense was meant. We had a fabulous week in Samara. It is the best kept secret in Costa Rica. We traveled in September, the low season, and would do the same again. There were almost no tourists, so many of the activities we did (kayaking to the island, zip-lining) felt like private tours and at better than 1/2 the price during high season and in the resort areas. There is a guy who supervises the condo and he is something of a concierge, setting all the tours up for us. We did do one spontaneous activity: horse backing riding with a vaquero tending horses on the beach. If you go, find Ronaldo and have him take you to the private cove all the locals go to as kids. The apartment had everything you needed, it was fun to grocery shop and make our own food as well as go to the restaurants along the beach (have breakfast at the Sheriff). The condo is situated at the top of a very steep hill plus two flights of stairs. I'm sure on a longer stay that would get very old, but for a week, it really wasn't too bad.
