Super comfortable accommodations in a great little town!

  • 4 of 5
This was our first visit to Costa Rica and we were pleasantly surprised. We did some touring around Guanacaste and discovered incredible natural biodiversity, beautiful countryside, and friendly, loving people. We stayed three weeks in Samara and attended the language school. This was the perfect place for us - extremely spacious and a 2 minute walk to everything we wanted; school, shops, fresh fruit stalls and vegetable stands, coffee shop, bakery, restaurants and of course the beach! The condo is beautifully equipped with everything you could possible want and can easily accommodate 6-8 people. There is even a housekeeper who comes each week (this was unexpected). There is a large grassy yard with a small pool, a shaded area and BBQ outside, which is nice in the evenings. It will be even nicer when the plantings and palms grow up more. Still a pleasant place to watch the iguanas, birds and the local horses graze. We will return!

Samara is a great town and this is a wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5
I have been to lots of beaches in Costa Rica, and Samara is one of my favorites. Its a nice little town with a good selection of restaurants and shops, and the beach is good for swimming and very clean. And it has a great place to stay: this condo! You are a few blocks from the beach, a pleasant walk through town. The condo has nice furniture, tasteful decorations, and a large kitchen with all the plates, utensils, pans, etc you need. There is a even a blender for your frozen drinks :-) The bedrooms are large and comfortable, and the air conditioning is modern and effective. We really liked this place, and I imagine that you will, too.

Casa JR is perfect condo in a perfect location!

We travelled to Costa Rica for the first time ever this past spring. We took our kids with us, two teenagers. It was about 2 1/2 hour drive from Liberia Airport to Samara. Once we got there, it was a dream. Imagine tree houses lining the tiny streets, some cars and motorcycles, but mostly bikes and walkers. The condo was great. It has a private gated entrance with a private pool shared with the 3 other condos in the complex. It was a nice small complex in the center of town. We could walk out the front door to get coffee, pastries & fresh fruit in the morning or walk directly next door to the grocery store. The condo itself is super clean and really roomy. It has a nice open kitchen fully stocked for cooking with washer and dryer in the closet next to kitchen. The condo was very comfortable and very secure. We never felt nervous or uncomfortable in this area. It is a two story building, which easily classifies as the tallest building in the town. No high rises, no huge hotel resorts lining the beach, which is such a draw for us. It was one of my favorite things about this vacation.
The locals were all so friendly. I loved that it was a 5 min stroll to the most beautiful crescent shaped beach. I would guess it was about 2 1/2 miles from one end to the other. I would go out running first thing in the morning and run right on the beach because of the wide beach available. The water was Amazing and warm. We even watched two horses come strolling onto the beach, unaccompanied by anyone. They played in the water for a second and then were on their way.
In the evening we could walk to several different restaurants easily right from the condo. And did I mention how Amazing the food was? It sounds strange, but the food was very inexpensive but super delicious and fresh! Al Manglar served me the best lasagna I can remember having. That is a MUST. Esmeralda was another restaurant favorite. It was funny, the restaurants mostly looked like huts or three sided tree houses. But when you go inside, they were so cute and so exceeded our expectations every meal.

There was plenty to do as well. We liked going to hang out on the beach, but we did rent kayaks to get to the island in the bay, easy activity with our 17 year old and 13 years old. We also took advantage of the zip line tour right there in samara, Wingnuts. It's family owned and was so much fun!
We think of this vacation often and cannot wait to return.

Fantastic condo for the whole family

  • 5 of 5
We just stayed at the condo for five days and it was fabulous. The location was convenient, as we could walk to all the stores and restaurants in the small town of Samara, yet the pool and condo are very mellow. The kitchen is well stocked, the air conditioning works great and our stay was very comfortable. We saw monkeys across the street, parrots in a tree by the pool, and enjoyed some bike rides to Carrillo and on other small dirt roads. The furniture in the condo is all good quality and it has everything you need for a group of all ages. We had three generations staying here and it was lovely. It's a block and a half from the beach, which worked out well. It is on the first floor and has walk in showers so it could be used by someone with limited mobility as well. Bring your own beach towels.
Acabamos de estar cinco noches en este Condo y fue fabuloso. Tiene tres recámaras y tres baños, y la cocina tiene todo para poder cocinar. La piscina es muy linda y es un Condo pequeño entonces normalmente no había otras personas allí. Esta a ciento cincuenta metro de la playa y vimos monos y lapas desde el Condo. Estaba lindisimo, muy bien equipada. Traigan sus propios toallas/paños para la playa.

Ideal Location close to everything! Safe, Comfortable, Well appointed

  • 5 of 5
We had the pleasure of staying in this condo for 3 months with our 2 small children. It was a dream. This condo is an easy short walk to the beach, right next door to the grocery store, and steps from many of our favorite restaurants and bars. The complex is private and small - we had the pool to ourselves frequenty! The condo itself is clean and cool - great AC, tons of dishes to cook with, nice linens, comfortable beds, and even a covered garage spot that was perfect for drying out beach clothes and storing gear. We did not have a car and didn't need one. The complex is suitable for everyone - we met groups of guys there for surf trips, other families, and couples. We would highly recommend this condo and we really enjoyed the funky surf town as well.

Samara is a traditional Costa Rican beach town with international flavor. Excellent restaurants (Italian, fresh seafood, German, traditional Costa Rican, vegetarian and more). The life in Samara is easy care-free living with inexpensive and delicious fresh bakeries and fresh fruit markets within a two minute walk. Surf schools, massage school, language school, horseback riding on the beach or mountains or to waterfalls, scuba diving, and zip lines all within 5 minutes. High speed internet cafes within a two minute walk provide friendly and thorough tour guide information for trips throughout Costa Rica. Eco-tourism including river tours, tours of rain forest, and other nature tours are within an hour drive. Punta Islita, a gorgeous and tranquil ocean-front spa and resort, is also within a 45 minute drive - it is a must do activity. For those who want more than a relaxing and quite time at the beach, there is lots to do in and around Samara and enough days trips to keep everyone busy for weeks.
