Overall, this place was as described. The bed was comfortable, and check in was easy. The person helping out the owner was lovely, and she had cute cats/a cute dog. A couple things to note: First, do not touch the shower head as you might get an electric shock. I accidentally brushed it while showering and it made my arm tingle something fierce. Second, you ARE in rural Costa Rica, so expect to see some amount of bugs inside. It didn't bother us much, but they are definitely present.

We LOVED our stay at Casa Heart Rock! Seriously, I almost refused to leave. The place has got a lot of wonderful funky boho charm and the neighbors are great. It was a little bit further from Samara's "downtown" than I was expecting but that actually worked out perfectly for us - it was quiet and zen without feeling far away (plus you can take a 5-10 minute leisurely stroll down a beautiful beach to get into town...who can complain about that?) We loved it and were only disappointed we couldn't stay longer.

It was awesome. If you want to live the Costa rican life for some days, it's truly amazing because you're close to the beach, shops, surf, horses, etc. It a beautiful appartment with good bed, kitchen is well fournish, you can do smoothie, there is a big fridge etc. If we go back to Samara, we would definitely stay at Meghan's place again :) just note that if you can't sleep without A/C you will have to pay for it every night but there is two big fans and we found it was enough to sleep well. If we go back to Samará, we would definitely stay there again :) Meghan is a really good host you won't be disappointed

Meghan's place was as described. She was easy to contact before and during our stay there. We had a baby with us and a toddler and she was able to help us get a pack and play and even a couple of toys which was over and above what we expected :). Her place was easily walkable to the beach and to town and quiet and peaceful at night. The outdoor space was a perfect place to be outside but out of the sun with the kids. We had a great time :)

What a beautiful place! Meghan is very accommodating, and makes sure she knows exactly when you will be arriving so that you can start your stay in beautiful Samara! The room is very clean, and artistic, such a great vibe:) Our favorite was the outside shower, so beautiful and in the morning you can hear the howler monkeys from a far. Just down the road to the right a beautiful beach with palms waits for you and the nicest Ticos selling Pipa Fria (coconuts) We can not wait to come back! Pura vida!!

Really GREAT value. Close to everything but just outside the main area, so you can sleep with peace. (The main area in Samara is usually quite loud into the eve). Walking everywhere is really easy from here, or you can rent a bike from the bike shop next door for very little. Meghan is a super sweet person, as well as a massage therapist and a yoga instructor. Do yourself a favor and get a massage, she is REALLY good! I know, I get a lot of massages. You will not be disappointed in your stay here!!!
