Sharing the treetops with monkeys, birds and iguanas, this light, airy, 2nd floor apartment is just 50 meters from the beach, on a quiet road but close to the heart of Sámara. Great nature views and sounds of the ocean throughout. Fully equipped kitchen, open plan living room with huge windows, comfy sofas, AC, balcony, yard, smart TV, WiFi, very comfortable bedrooms. Ideal for families, couples or friends looking to connect with local culture in a beautiful, private space steps from the ocean.
Poised on an unpaved road that ends at the beach and is shared by the local language school and other lodgings, this unique and spacious apartment with its vaulted ceiling is shaded by mango, papaya, and cashew tres. Our fully furnished, 2nd floor apartment has two bedrooms, one bath, and an open-plan living room and kitchen with a porcelenato-tiled breakfast bar, and a beautiful outdoor deck where you can relax in a hammock, watch the wildlife and listen to the sounds of the ocean. WiFi is included. Guests have their own entrance through a gate which leads to the spiral staircase up to the apartment. NOTE: This is a spiral staircase leading to the second floor, requiring reasonable levels of mobility: it is NOT a ground-floor apartment! The yard, BBQ, trampoline, terrace, playset, etc, is at ground level, and accesible off of the balcony down alternate stairs. The master bedroom has a king bed (can be separated into two singles), while the second has a loft-like double bed (up a ladder), and below, a single bed and a child's fold out chair-mattress, making the apartment perfect for a family or traveling friends. Both rooms have AC, bedside tables, lamps, closets and ceiling fans. Our unique furniture is handmade by local woodworkers using recycled tropical woods. The kitchen has a convection oven/toaster, stovetop, blender, hot water heater, Costa Rican coffee drip, mini-food processor, ample flatware, and comfortable seating for meals at the breakfast bar. In the interest of full disclosure, as with any rental in the heart of Sámara, the bar-restaurants can be noisy at night, as can the early morning roosters, dogs and howler monkeys. To that end we have AC and two loud floor fans that work great for drowning out outside noise.
I love that we are so close to the beach, you don't even need to put your flipflops on if you don´t mind the dirt road, and that there is so much nature and wildlife around us. Monkeys and iguanas are very common, geckos are everywhere, birds of all types, and the horses who wander free down our road. Also, being right near town and the language school is a plus, as guests can easily walk everywhere, and also use the language school facilities and take part in activities like yoga and dance, meet other travellers of all ages and feel like they are part of a community if they want to. Restaurants, bars and supermarkets are within 1-3 blocks, and it´s a very safe area even at night. One thing to expect are the iguanas that live all over Sámara and are frequent visitors to our roof, from where they can reach the fruit trees! They are harmless and beautiful to watch. Also, anything sweet should ALWAYS be in the fridge once opened, as there are small sugar ants (also harmless) that appear the instant anything tempting is left out!
  • We rented for a month (family of 4) and everything was perfect! Near the beach, restaurant, grocery store! Laura is superb will see you. I highly recommend! Thanks Laura :)

  • We enjoyed Laura's apartment very much. Lots of Costa Rican character with everything we needed for our 2 week stay. The location was perfect - a 2 minute walk into the ocean with lots of great restaurants nearby. The apartment was very clean and communication excellent. Some have commented on the noise around - its not quiet. There are bars nearby, lots of barking dogs and crowing roosters. The howler monkeys are noisy early in the morning too. If all that would bother you, I suggest a condo or a resort. In our experience, Central American neighbourhoods tend to be noisy. Being in Laura's apartment gave us more of a local experience, which we prefer. Note that the spiral staircase up to the apartment may not be good for everyone - we are in our 60s and were fine.

    Deborah2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great location!

    Stephanie2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Laura’s with our 11-ur-old daughter. The place was clean and beautifully decorated, as pictured. Bright and sunny and in the tree canopy. Location was fantastic. There were even sarongs to borrow for the beach! We were there in the “green” season so noise was not a problem except Friday night we could hear bass from a dance club (I think). I had earplugs so not a problem and it was quiet all other nights. The AC worked great at night for sleeping- in fact was so cold we used it sparingly. Everything about our stay was wonderful. Would certainly stay again and hope to return to Samara :)

    Jessie2019-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • This house was pure magic! We loved being so close to the ocean and being in such a relaxing home. We stayed with my two young boys, and Laura provided a pack n play and a guard rail for the bed, which was awesome. We didn't have a vehicle, and didn't need one at all. The location is perfect! We could walk to a store in 2-3 minutes and to the beach in 1! Also, the neighbors are all so kind and treated us like friends. We will be back!

    Amanda2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • This spot is perfect for couples or families! Literally a two minute walk to the beach and two minutes the other way to town including groceries and restaurants and shops. Our 10 month old son loved it and being so close to everything made it easy to quickly get back to the apartment if necessary. Laura & Cheryl are quick to respond and have great recommendations. Highly recommend :)

    Celeste2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Laura's place is the perfect place to stay in Samara. The place is just footsteps from the beach and was the most well equipped apartment we have stayed at in Costa Rics. They recently added a balcony which is a great spot to enjoy your morning coffee and watch all the birds and iguanas. I highly suggest this spot.

    Sarah2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location, just down the road from a beautiful beach, backed by palm trees. We saw birds, iguanas and a coati in the garden. The apartment was well equipped and had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended.

    Sámara, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    Playa Carrillo is one of the 5 most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica and probably one of the 12 most beautiful beaches in the world. Its white sand and its extensive beach covered with palm trees and freshwater marshes make it a true paradise. Casa Guarumo is modern and contemporary. Each of the 5 rooms has air conditioning, bathroom and private balcony. The gourmet kitchen is equipped for the most demanding chef.
    The house is located in the center of Carrillo, very close to everything. There are small supermarkets and restaurants within walking distance of the house.
    Carrillo is a very safe area. It has a constant municipal surveillance and its beach is flagged blue for being kept free of contamination. It is a quiet place and ideal for rest. Playa Samara is 6 kilometers away with a lot of restaurants, bars and activities for lovers of social and night life.
  • Thanks Sergio! We were enjoying Casa Guarumo as a family, we are 16. And we were always very comfortable. The house has everything you need. It is clean and tidy. Pablo and Xinia very friendly and available for any detail. Thank you very much, we had an amazing weekend. We hope to return!

    Ivannia2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • We loved it highly recommended

    Adriana2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Guarumo is as perfect as all the pictures and better. The location is great, with 4 very good restaurants just a few minutes walk away! The grocery store across the street had everything we needed, from fresh fruit to drinks to shampoo. The pool was cleaned every day by Pablo and the patio swept. Xinia cooked us typical Costa Rican breakfast 3 mornings. She would have cooked us supper to, but we wanted to explore all the restaurants in the area. Xinia booked excursions for us and had them pick us up right at the house. We enjoyed many species of birds right on the patio and a big highlight was howler monkeys filling the tree right in front of the house and we could watch them from the patio. The kitchen was well equipped with 2 fridges, microwave and lots of room. The washer and dryer came in handy. The pool area is well setup with a bathroom and shower off the patio. Playa Samara is only 10 minutes away by car. There were many more restaurants, shopping, grocery stores etc. Playa Carrillo is only a 10 minute walk down a really big hill. Morning walks on the beach were amazing and the sunsets were breathtaking! All the bedrooms were air conditioned, so no worry about the heat for sleeping. The temperature went down slightly in the evenings, so we enjoyed the patio all day and night. Sergio was great, he helped us arrange drivers to and from the airport! He responded quickly if we had questions. If we needed anything Pablo was close by to help us. This is an amazing property, well maintained and the location is perfect! We can’t wait to start planning our next trip back to Casa Guarumo!

    Tracy2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous place! We had a great time and because each room has a balcony and a private bath, our families were very comfortable. It has several levels so not appropriate for people with disabilities. The beach is very close however you might want to drive as the road has a small hill. The staff was extremely helpful and nice, we hired Xinia also for cooking a few meals and she did a fantastic job!

    Monica2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • We were too happy, the place is spectacular, the attention wonderful, just a detail that the large Refri did not work to make ice, but that did not mean a big problem. I would recommend the place a thousand times.

    Gerald2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • This place is perfect for large groups. We had 12 guests and there was easily room to fit 4 more guests comfortably. I highly recommend this place. The chef prepared us delicious meals upon request and was very personable. I would give this place more than 5 stars if I could.

    Patrick2019-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent!

    Kerri2019-05-17T00:00:00Z
  • The house has a fairly good common areas, the rooms and the kitchen are perfectly equipped. Very good place to spend holidays.

    Puerto Carrillo, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    Simple. Rustic. Beachfront. If you're looking to slow down, disconnect and experience authentic Costa Rica, The Sandbox might be the place for you. This 2nd floor studio apartment is located a short 10 minute walk to Samara Center and provides expansive Pacific Ocean views. Fall asleep to the sound of the waves and wake up to the sounds of the howler monkeys.
    We are an eco-conscious, positive vibe property located on the beach! An older, wooden, rustic, old school style Tico beach house converted into 3 apartments. This unit is located upstairs facing the ocean. Because it is located on the beach, expect some sand and depending on the season, some insects. Although completely screened, there are no mosquitoes inside. We keep it laid back and simple and always do our best given the circumstances Costa Rica provides. The property has a large fenced in yard. The Ocean Side apartment has an equipped kitchenette with an electric cooktop, coffee maker, blender, toaster, queen sized bed and full bath with hot water shower and ceiling fan. Air conditioning is not included in the price but is available upon request for an extra $10/night. We do ask that you please do not run the a/c while you are not in the unit. Most nights the ocean breeze is enough to keep you comfortable. You can often see quite a bit of wildlife from the property. Howler monkeys visit frequently as well as iguanas, squirrels and many types of birds. Please keep in mind that this is a Central American beach house in the jungle in Costa Rica, not a Ritz Carlton Resort, things are rustic. Don't expect 5 star amenities. Geckos, ants (usually just passing through on a mission to somewhere) and other harmless creatures visit frequently, power and water outages can happen from time to time. It's part of the Pura Vida charm. So pull up a beach chair, leave your expectations behind and enjoy the sunset!
    Super quiet neighborhood between Samara Centro and Matapalo.
  • 3rd time to stay here. Awesome as always!

    Douglas2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • This place offers a nice space at the edge of the beach. Open the windows and get the breeze and sounds of the ocean. We especially enjoyed using a powerful blender to make our own tropical smoothies. Michelle is indeed a Super Host.

    Jack2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • nice, nice stay, beach front, balcony, all you need. great place!

    Luis2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly as described, perfect location on the beach and super close to the town center.

    Adam2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing little apartment perfect for 1-2 people. The ocean right outside and the view was outstanding. Can highly recommend it!

    Pernilla2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful space steps from the beach. Really enjoyed waking up and falling asleep to the sounds of the crashing waves. Would never want to stay anywhere else in Samara. Michelle was a great host.

    Andrew2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to fall asleep to the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. The ideal place to watch the sunrise. Quiet location but with easy access to the town highly recommended.

    Jon2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • Michelle's place was great. Perfect view from the big windows. Exactly what I expected, cottage vibe beach house. Great location nice and quiet (other than the monkeys:) ), and short walk into town. Fell in love with Costa Rica here, cant wait to come back!

    Sámara, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    Jardin is a short walk from Samara’s beach, restaurants and nightlife. Jardin has 2 private bedrooms, equipped kitchen, living room, great outside space and jungle views. It boasts handcrafted furniture and comfy beds. Jardin shares a pool with the other 5 villas here at Villas Espavel. With the beautiful shared pool and towering trees nestled against the jungle and a seasonal river, you’ll relish the cool shade when the rest of town is scorching. Villa Jardin is good for families and groups.
    Villa Jardin is one of 6 Villas on the peaceful grounds of Villas Espavel. All 6 Villas share the glorious pool, river access, outdoor living room and tree top yoga space. Each Villa also has its own patio or balcony. Villas Espavel is a 5 to 10-minute walk to the beach, restaurants, Intercultura language school and The Costa Rica School of Massage. Jardin is a cool ground floor Villa with an airy porch for outdoor dining and hanging out. You’ll find orthopedic mattresses, comfortable pillows, reading lights, shelves, clothes hanging space and a combination safe for your valuables. There is a full size sofa bed to accommodate additional guests. There is one bathroom with a hot-water shower and space for your toiletries. In each kitchen you’ll find a 4-burner electric stove and all the kitchen implements you’ll need to prepare beautiful meals. There are powerful ceiling fans to keep you cool; over the beds, in the living area and on the outside patio. We spend most of our time outside and I bet you will too. A favorite pass time is swinging in the hammock while looking at the green jungle. Or cooling off in the pool after a walk back from town. Villas Espavel is very secure as the property is hidden away down a long driveway. All the windows have window screens and security bars. We have a washer available if you need one during your stay.
    Villas Espavel is 75 meters off the paved road with a beautiful jungle creek bordering our property. As you walk out of our driveway, turn left to reach the beach or town in 600 meters, approximately a 6 to 10-minute walk. Or turn right and walk 300 meters to a little eatery for gallo pinto and a grocery store where you can pick up your milk, eggs and beer. We have great neighbors of the human kind as well as beautiful birds, iguanas, chickens and howler monkeys serenading you in the mornings and evenings. We are away from the disco noise and dust of town in a neighborhood with horses and chickens wandering the streets. Please be aware that the dogs, chickens, monkeys and motorcycles do not always respect the quiet hours we wish they would.
  • We stayed 3 nights there and we really enjoyed it! It’s super well situated, in a calm area and near everything you need. The little terrace and the pool was a big plus. Also the little book with all the tips was so useful we appreciated it a lot! Our only regret is not staying longer! Thanks a lot for everything!! I definitely recommend it to everyone!

    Natali2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Villa Espavel is simply perfect, from reception to departure everything goes smoothly. The owners and the rest of the team are always on hand and ready to help. They make the stay even more pleasant. The pool and facilities are immaculate. The place is great location and everything is easily accessible on foot. For us, in Samara villa Espavel is a must to find accommodation and enjoy your vacation.

    Sébastien2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay in a wonderful setting, yet close access to the town of Samara. Beds were comfortable and there were some cooking supplies which made it easier to cook. We spent much of our time on the shaded porch enjoying the lovely setting.

    Barbara2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place to stay in Samara. Johanna is an awesome property manager, there to answer any questions. Great to be able to rent boogie boards right on site👍👍👍

    Dyanne2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • This place was perfect! Great location, friendly and helpful host, highly recommend!!!

    Alex2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • This place is awesome! Clean, well kept and great common areas like the pool and yoga platform. Also super thoughtful touches like the coffee and the floaties for the pool for our toddler. Also, the on-site manager told us about an amazing horseback riding experience to a private beach. Good vibes!

    Elana2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Very cozy and quiet place, all clean and tidy. The location is pretty good, we would go back without thinking

    Jose Daniel2019-12-15T00:00:00Z

    Sámara, Provincia de Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    Villa Eden blue , one of 4 houses in a gated community Eden Blu Paradisio, was designed with comfort, elegance, and entertaining in mind. You will enjoy the amazing lap pool with view on ocean .A/C in the 3 bedrooms and living-room .For a family looking for modern accommodation in Samara .Walking distance from the center and the beach .
    The location is outstanding: 150 feet above sea level and an easy 3-minute walk to the bach and center, with a beautiful ocean view and a wonderful lap pool
    Situated on the only small hillside within the center of Samara Beach, Villa Eden is the perfect spot to enjoy panoramic ocean views. Double-wide glass doors open up, connecting the kitchen, living room/dining room to the patio and pool area. Suntan on poolside lounge chairs or relax under the covered patio.
  • You will not find a better place to enjoy the wonderful seaside town of Samara. First, Valeria was so accommodating as we arrived quite late in the evening. She was there to meet us and show us around. While the house was great (comfortable beds, good kitchen etc.), the real gem was the outdoor area of the house. The setting is stunning, the "monkey show" each evening was not to be missed. The pool was a life saver after a long day on the beach or returning from an adventure trip. Location is perfect, private with beautiful views, but so close, easy walk to everything. We spent many hours at the patio/pool area, simply perfect. And Felix did such a great job keeping the pool clean. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Samara.

    Leigh2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic and great place. 2 minute walk to the action...very safe and Samara is great ! Private backyard with pool is great! Place has everything you need with lots of space. We will be back for sure, could not be happier with our stay!

    James (Rick)2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Terrific highly recommend

    Harold2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I loved our stay at this luxurious villa.We spent most of our time in the pool and outside deck.We saw many monkeys in the morning,iguanas and even a coati in the surrounding area.Was a great place to stay in Samara!

    Ylan2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the place...location was spectacular. We have rented many times in Samara and the key pick up was very efficient. The pool was perfect. The gentleman that took care of the pool and grounds did an amazing job. The bedrooms were roomy and the ac was much appreciated. Thank you for a great place to stay in beautiful Samara 😊

    Rachel2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible space. It’s gated on a very small street that holds three similar homes. It’s nice being that close to town 5-10 min walk to everything yet so secluded and private due to the hill and gate. It’s amazing to have a pool as well! Great host with an incredible team that made everything very easy and comfortable.

    Peter2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Our group consisted of two couples traveling together and we stayed at Barbara’s house for 10 days. Worked out beautifully. Fabulous location.....private, two minutes walk to a grocery store and five minutes to the beach. We all like to cook and found lovely local ingredients. Pool was fun. Perfect for a group or family.

    Terry2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • What a great house! Yes, it’s up a big hill, a 3-4 minute heavy walk up, but it’s worth it, because the view is spectacular and you’re just far enough away from the Main Street that you have total privacy and tranquillity but you can still easily walk to town and the beach. The kitchen is stocked with lots of dishes, appliances, and utensils - we made a full thanksgiving dinner for six, and had almost everything we needed. The house is very well maintained, the pool is incredible! It’s the jungle, so there are some bugs/ants/spiders, and bats at night, but you need to learn to love this, because it’s jungle paradise, and bugs come with everything else here that’s amazing like beautiful birds, monkeys, raccoon and more. Highly recommend!!

    Sámara, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    Enjoy your vacation relaxing to the sound of the Pacific from every room in the house. We just finished building our home, our concept was to have a house for visiting family and friends and for everyone to have a private space to their own. The open concept and indoor/outdoor living spaces brings Costa Rica costal living to every day. Our caretakers will serve you an awesome breakfast every morning and keep the house nice and clean daily. Our super Chef Vanny is also available on request.
    As you walk in the front door you will right away see the beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean, the main floor is all open space with indoor and outdoor living spaces. The kitchen is fully equipped with high end appliances. The TV room can also convert into an extra bedroom with a very comfortable "flop over" sofa bed. We included an ensuit bathroom in this room also incase someone sleep there. The second floor has 4 spacious bedrooms all with ensuit bathrooms. Another goal of ours was to have a view of the ocean from every room in the house. The master bedroom has a large covered terrasse, this is my morning yoga spot. We are located 5 mins from Carrillo Beach, "our morning walk ritual spot" and on a dead-end street making life nice and quiet.
    Playa Carrillo is a very spacial place, nature is at the forefront with only a long beach, the Pacific, palms, almond trees and beautiful birds. This place is very special to us its what hooked us to the area. The little town of Carrillo has a few restaurants and a small grocery store. We like to go out for diner and do our groceries in Samara, the next town over. Its only a 10 minute drive and a great place for beach restaurants, cool little boutiques, yoga classes, salons and all the necessary places like: the bank, pharmacy and different grocery stores.
  • Beautiful views, amazing spaces and above and beyond hospitality. Our stay was a wonderful experience with the stellar accommodations and the helpfulness of Patricia and Raoul. Breakfast was a well presented full Costa Rican breakfast and never failed to be a great way to start our day. Patricia prepared our evening meals as well. It was nice to spend all day at the beach and come back to a well prepared meal then take an evening dip in the pool. France and Anggie have supplied an environment that will never fail to provide you with a relaxing, satisfying experience. We can’t wait until we arrive again in beautiful Costa Rica, Pura Vida!!

    Terra2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • This may be one of the finest homes we’ve ever stayed in (the design, the furniture, the landscaping, the location, the 1.4m deep saltwater pool). The home has everything that could be needed, including a well-stocked kitchen with all the gadgets to make a splendid meal. We chose to hire Chef Vanny (when you get closer to your stay, his WhatsApp number will be shared with you to coordinate menu ideas) on the night of our arrival so we didn’t have to worry about trying to grocery shop after a long day of travel. He makes amazing food and we were stuffed by the end! He is Italian and his ravioli were divine. The best part of the whole trip were Patricia and Raoul, the caretakers of the home. They are so warm and hospitable (really we found all Costa Ricans to be this way). Patricia made amazing breakfasts which included the most wonderful pineapples, papayas, watermelons, and cantaloupe you have ever tasted. We’re still talking about CR fruit. (If you have room in your luggage, please consider taking coloring books for their 7yo daughter. I don’t think they’re readily available nearby and the ones we brought for her were much appreciated.) We’ve already decided to return someday. Pura Vida!!

    Shivani2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • This a a great place to stay. Caretakers are awesome and not having to worry about breakfast is great. Place is clean relaxing and high end. To get away for a few days and relax, this is the place. Anggie was very accommodating and took care of all our needs and responded quickly. We had a great time!

    Anthony2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • This is an absolutely gorgeous house (accurately featured in this listing's photos!) overlooking a pristine corner of the ocean. It's situated at the end of a quiet dirt and gravel road outside Puerto Carrillo. The caretakers, Patricia and Raoul, are so warm and friendly, keeping the house and grounds in excellent shape; Patricia's breakfasts and fresh fruit juices were a true highlight for us! The owners' representative, Anggie, was always very quick to respond to messages and helped to coordinate our stay, including outstanding, restaurant-quality dinners at the house from Chef Vanni. The nearby beach, while a bit wavy, is massive and shaded by palm trees (a good place to lay out towels); it's easy to access from the road and has some vendors offering cabanas, chairs, and refreshments (including the fresh coconuts that our kiddos loved). We valued the activities, food, and provisions in nearby Samara (especially Samara Organics, which offered great local products). Overall, this was an excellent spot for a relaxing family vacation, and we'd love to travel back another time!

    Timothy2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • There are very few places my husband and I have been to I just take your breath away. From the communication with the owners to the communication with our immediate hosts Raul and Patrica who live Downstairs and have those with everything including making awesome breakfast every morning, this place was perfect. The house is brand new And is spectacular. At night time you can hear the waves of the ocean as if you were standing right next to it. Amazing infinity pool and decor. In the Beautiful beach town of Samara we also did an excellent Family fishing trip. Buy food for lunch and dinner and bring your entire family and just spend some days at this amazing house with incredible owners and incredible hosts! we will definitely be back again thank you so much for everything!

    Heidi2019-12-02T00:00:00Z
  • My stay at France’s property was amazing. It has breathtaking sunsets, great amenities, fabulous service and convenient location. I highly recommend this property to any family with kids or to a group of friends. It’s elegant, comfortable, and very well located. Patricia, the caretaker, goes above and beyond to make the best out of your stay. Angie regularly followed up with us during the stay to make sure everything was going as expected. We would highly consider to come back in the near future.

    Maykool2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • This bnb is even more gorgeous in real life than the photos! The view was so amazing and can be seen from everywhere in the house or pool. I stayed here with my fiancé this November and we will be back in the future with friends and family. The caretakers were so sweet and helpful! The house was very clean and modern. I would definitely recommend using Vanny the chef option at least once. His food was so delicious!! If I could give ten stars I would!

  • This house is absolutely amazing! It is a dream home in a private and beautiful location! We had an amazing time swimming in the pool, eating great food and relaxing; it was the best holiday and I am recommending this Airbnb to all my friends! You also have Patricia has Raoul who make breakfast and look after everything during the stay. It was truly a magical experience and I couldn’t be happier!

  • The place was very nice! The host was very helpful, however couldn't speak English, but we managed anyways. The fans kept the room somewhat cool at night. I can definitely recommend!

    Bailee2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • This house was perfect! The ceiling fans kept us cool enough at night that we even used our sheet. The kitchen was equip with everything we needed. There was even a short water outage and Felipe left us a full jug of drinking water so we didn’t run out! All around 10 out of 10 for price, location, and service!

    Rachel2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Felipe’s place was exactly as described. No more than a block to the beach access and some great restaurants. We enjoyed the simplicity of the space and I would definitely book again! Felipe was also very accommodating with our check in and check out times since our flight arrived to Costa Rica late. He was in contact with our transportation service and helped them to get us to the chalet with no problems. If you want to have a week of relaxation, I suggest booking his place

    Jessica2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great accommodation, 2 steps from the beach and the sea. The location is really ideal and perfect to stay in Samara. The bungalow is spacious, the bed is comfortable, and the kitchen very convenient for preparing meals. The shower was hot too. There were 2 big fans on the ceiling which was great for sleeping. So at the top, we really recommend this accommodation. Just the floor could be a little cleaner but it does not matter, the rest is clean. And especially great value for money.

    Jéromine2019-11-21T00:00:00Z

  • Fantastic location, in one minute you are in the beach. Also very comfortable for a small group, and to stay some days. It will be great that there was some sugar, oil and salt, the basics to avoid buying a whole thing.

Enjoy fully equipped lofts with weekly cleaning to cook, play, and relax! A delicious breakfast is included on the beach, just around the corner at LuvBurger, organic coffee or tea, traditional gallo pinto, pancakes, smoothie bowl or avocado toast!
    Casa Santosha is steps from one of the most amazing beaches in Costa Rica! Practically beach front you will be able to go from beach to the apartments very easily, we have an outdoor shower to cool off during the day. We include a delicious breakfast right on the beach at our restaurant LuvBurger! Organic coffee or tea, a choice of traditional gallo pinto, pancakes, avocado toast, or smoothie bowl awaits you!!
    Casa Santosha is located steps from the beach and right in the center of town... everything is in walking distance, grocery stores, restaurants, bars, surf schools, tour companies, souvenir shops, and much more!!
  • We totally enjoyed our stay of two nights. The location is indeed steps from the beach. The breakfast at Luv Burger was a daily highlight. We actually ate every meal there. What a setting. Really liked Samara and enjoyed our stay.

    Thomas2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Great appartment right at the beach. The kitchen has everything you need. There was no mosquito problem and the Wifi worked. Uncomplicated checkin. I can really recommend it.

    Theresa2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Hello, We loved our stay at Santosha. Aside from around 30 hours without water (problem of the Asana mechanical breakdown company which affected the whole village and nothing to do with Santosha in particular), the place corresponded to the information provided and comments from travelers. The place is not luxurious, quite rustic, but the interior courtyard is wooded and intimate and you can park your vehicle safely. The beach is directly at the end of the lane, about 1 minute of walking at Tico pace. Very well located, in the heart of the village and set back at the same time. We `` shopped '' around during our stay and it was by far the best value for money. The breakfasts included at the LuvBurger are excellent, a plus. We brought a mosquito net with hoop that we installed above the bed and above our table outside. Excellent decision. At the beginning of the dry season (around the end of December), even if mosquitoes are not a disaster, they are present and it can become a significant irritant. With a bit of mosquito repellant and a mosquito net, this is quite tolerable. If you are partiers and like to sleep late in the morning, know that the neighbor's rooster starts to sing before 5:00 am, sometimes during the night. If you're more like going to bed and waking up early, this won't really be a problem. It was our 4th trip to Costa Rica and it was once again a delight, the Samara beach is pleasant, the nearby Carillo beach a wonder and the Camaronal Refuge a must.

    Claude2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • A nice little apartment off the beach, would probably stay again if I go back to Samara! The first night didn't have good water pressure for some reason but after that it was all good.

    Andy2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • A great option for visiting Samara! Steps from the beach, and a short walk to restaurants, cafes, etc. Felt safe, super easy checkin. 10/10 would stay again.

    Daniel2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • Sandra's place is nicely located .just steps away from the beach. It's very convinient. I easily walked every where. The breakfast is amazing. I recommend it.

    Franco2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great base by the sea. I highly recommend!

    Hannah-Mahé2019-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • Unbeatable place to stay in Playa Samara. The space is comfortable, pleasant, offers cooking facilities and the best thing is that it is just a few meters from the beach, as well as a supermarket and an ATM. On the other hand, it must be said that the breakfasts at Luv Burger are the best.

    Elaine2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Casa la Chora! The apartments are arranged around a pool and you can enjoy your private space or be social with other guests (in our case many fellow Canadians :) so it feels very welcoming. We had a one bedroom apt and it was spacious with a very comfortable bed, Air con for the bedroom and it was great to have a kitchen to prepare breakfast and lunch...we went out for dinners as there are many restaurants within a few minute walk. Elena and her team of delightful ladies took good care of us and the whole place is kept very clean. The pool is refreshing when returning from a walk. We certainly highly recommend this beautiful property! Pura Vida!

It is just off the main street ,literally a block from the beach and town centre, with a grocery store right across from place. Elena offered us information about events going on in town. A fabulous vacation

    Sámara Beach, Costa Rica Nicoya Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    Mar is a short walk from Samara’s beach, restaurants and nightlife. You’ll love Mar because of the equipped kitchen, great patio, handcrafted furniture, cozy window seat, fast WIFI, no TV and comfortable beds. Mar and 5 other villas share our beautiful pool on the Villas Espavel property, which is nestled against the jungle and a seasonal river. With our towering trees you’ll relish the cool shade of Villas Espavel when the rest of town is scorching. Mar is good for families and small groups.
    Villa Mar is one of 6 Villas on the peaceful grounds of Villas Espavel. All 6 Villas share the glorious pool, river access, outdoor living room and tree top yoga space. Each Villa also has its own patio or balcony. Villas Espavel is a 5 to 10-minute walk to the beach, restaurants, Intercultura language school and The Costa Rica School of Massage. Mar is a breezy loft Villa with an airy porch for outdoor dining and hanging out. The loft has an orthopedic queen mattress, one twin mattress and a small window seat bed that is perfect for a child under 9. There is a twin sofa bed on the first floor to accommodate another person. The bathroom is on the first floor and has a hot-water shower and space for your toiletries. You’ll find comfortable pillows, reading lights, shelves, clothes hanging space and a combination safe for your valuables. In each kitchen you’ll find a 4-burner electric stove and all the kitchen implements you’ll need to prepare beautiful meals. There are powerful ceiling fans to keep you cool; over the bed/s, in the living area and on the outside patio/balcony. We spend most of our time outside and I bet you will too. A favorite pass time is swinging in the hammock or rocking in the teak rocking chairs while looking at the green jungle. Villas Espavel is very secure as the property is hidden away down a long driveway. All the windows have window screens and security bars. The owners live on site and will be available to answer your questions and help you settle in. We have a washer available if you need one during your stay.
    Villas Espavel is 75 meters off the paved road with a beautiful jungle creek bordering our property. As you walk out of our driveway, turn left to reach the beach or town in 600 meters, approximately a 6 to 10-minute walk. Or turn right and walk 300 meters to a little eatery for gallo pinto and a grocery store where you can pick up your milk, eggs and beer. We have great neighbors of the human kind as well as beautiful birds, iguanas, chickens and howler monkeys serenading you in the mornings and evenings. We are away from the disco noise and dust of town in a neighborhood with horses and chickens wandering the streets. Please be aware that the dogs, chickens, monkeys and motorcycles do not always respect the quiet hours we wish they would.
  • My family and I had a wonderful stay. I cannot recommend this place enough. Great spot for kids. Definitely rent bikes for a relaxing way to enjoy the town.

    Sarah2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Villa Mar. The pool was great and our family enjoyed it multiple times a day. The outdoor yoga space was also enjoyed as an extra outdoor space. The local tips on places to visit and how to source local foods were outstanding and Johanna was very helpful. The house was not 100% clean on arrival but they were quick to fix this once we commented. The space in the villa is a bit small for a family of 4 for a week but still comfortable.

    Laura2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place with nice staff!

    Charlotta2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Villa Mar is a great unit in the beautiful Villa Espavel grounds. The neighborhood is so central to the beaches and town, a car is not needed to easily get around. The management team of Tano and Johanna is great, very quick to respond to any questions. The grounds are beautiful with a sparkling clean pool, great little zip line for the kids and a jungle swing over the little river bed. We appreciated the AC in the evenings! The villas have boogie boards and bikes for rent, as well as washer and dryer available for guest use (dryer is a minimal fee, we hung out our clothes to dry on the lines all but once which was perfect). We appreciated the care and attention for the environment with the composting and recycling bins for guest use. Our first coffee and a few beers were provided, as well as sarongs for beach use and beautiful towels for the pool. The rancho was great for stretching, having coffee, or just relaxing in the afternoon. Our family had a great stay for 2 weeks and I would highly recommend to anyone staying in Samara for a few nights or weeks.

    Rossi2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time here! Loved every minute of it and we were super sad to leave, we could have easily stayed one more week. There’s so much to do for the whole family in the villa or the cute little town. Everything is reachable by foot or by bike and the beaches are just beautiful. Would definitely come back, anytime!

    Domi2019-12-08T00:00:00Z

  • Mercy and Canuche’s Villas are a wonderful oasis in Samara. They have carefully thought through everything a guest might need and have done their best to accommodate it. Their staff is excellent and responsive as well. They are highly recommended.

    Ben2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • The villas are very nice with all Equipment you need for a perfect stay. You can easy walk to the beach or rent a bike. The beach life in Samara is great! We were surfing and just swimming in the waves in very warm water! Played Beachvolleyball with the locals and did horsebackriding on the beach. Really just perfect.

If you look closely enough you may spot exotic birds such as Scarlet Macaw Parrots or Tucans flying over head or in the trees. Monkeys playing in trees are also a common sight right outside the condo building. Sámara has a perfect blend of local authenticity and international tourists alike. It is a very welcoming town to travellers of all ages and walks of life. There is something special for everyone here, and it is waiting for you to find it.
  • Everything from check-in to the sunset was magical in this apartment. The view, location, people, town, everything was truly amazing. Thank you for having us, and we look forward to the next visit.

    Girard Daniel2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • The condo has an amazing view of Samara and the ocean. It was clean and had everything we needed. It is close walk to the beach and only minutes from the town with restaurants and stores. The pool was great to spend the hot afternoons at. The elevator to the complex isn’t working which was no issue for us but might be for someone with mobility issues staying on a higher floor unit. There was an issue with the water not working in the complex during our stay which seemed to be an ongoing issue per the other guests.

    Greg2020-02-01T00:00:00Z

    André2019-12-28T00:00:00Z

    Fausto2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Literally THE best view in Sámara, it's absolutely breathtaking. If you're visiting Sámara, you need to stay here. We loved that the beach was across the street and being able to relax in the pool right after. The town is also a short 5 minute walk down the road with so many good restaurants. The apartment is clean and modern with updated appliances, even a washer & dryer. There is no other option, you must stay here on your trip to Sámara! We'll definitely be staying here again next time. Loved it!

  • This house was even better than we expected. Having the pool to cool off in after the beach was one of our favorite things.

    Marilyne2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house with a sweet little pool (very private), and about 5 minutes walk to the ocean. The town itself is quite charming, with lots to do. We found great groceries, so were able to cook many meals ourselves (which we love to do). Would return in the future.

    Roger2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Ed’s place and would recommend staying here! The location is great and is central to the downtown area. Lots of restaurants and the beach is easily walkable. Highly recommend checking out Roots Bakery as well for some delicious coffee and cinnamon buns!

    Rachelle2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great casa, steps from the Main Street in Samara. Very secluded down a quiet road yet steps from shops, restaurants and bars. Ed and Scott (our local check-in contact) responded promptly to our inquiries. The small pool in the back was ideal to jump into after a day of activities! Great outdoor communal area to sit around and just chat about the day. House was just as described, perfect for two couples. Only hiccup was the internet was down due to a recent heavy rain, so really out of Ed’s control. Otherwise stay here for a simple laid back time in the quaint village of Samara.

    Gary2020-02-06T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a Oasis of joy totally in the shade with a wonderful house and pool. You can walk to the beach and it really make you feel like a local. I did that place with my mom and kids. Scott is a super host, always near to help. I totally recommand.

    Catherine2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Such a nice place. Near the beach and city activity but really calm in the small hidden street

    Jérémie2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Property exactly as described - but a little bit better!! Fantastic location, excellent property management; can’t say enough. The location and yard with pool created a fantastic hideaway from the buzz of Sámara - unless you wanted to walk the few hundred feet to experience it 😁 Can’t go wrong!

    Ken2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • The location of this wonderful house is fab. It’s right at the start of the main strip and a short walk (5 mins) to shops, beach, restaurants basically everything you need/want for a perfect trip to beautiful Samara. The house is the last one down a small quiet side road and backs on to the jungle, the best location on the block. Insect repellent essential to make the most of the gorgeous gardens with passing wildlife and resident iguana. The pool makes an excellent cool off spot. The house is equipped with everything you need for your stay, there are lots of personal touches and it feels like a home. The pictures don’t do it justice. There are beautiful high ceilings inside and it is very spacious with more than enough room for the 4 of us (it sleeps 6, we didn’t even touch one room!) Scott is a really helpful lovely guy who didn’t even bat an eyelid at our post midnight check in. Thanks for an awesome stay. We wish we were still there!!

  • Amazing location, huge property, sparkling clean and nice thoughtful touches. José is polite and attentive. The rooms are on the smaller side of life but they have AC.

    David2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Jose’s place is literally right on the beach! We loved the easy access to everything and the outdoor showers are an excellent touch!

    Deseree2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Best beach house in Samara!! Prime location, spacious house, cool air conditioning units in each bedroom, full kitchen with all the cookware you would ever need. But you don’t really need to cook because all the restaurants are walkable. Great place for a family beach trip. We loved everything.

    Clint2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time in José's very well equipped house, which is even more beautiful than in the photos. It seems that we have thought of everything to make this house a little paradise on earth, where you can enjoy an incredible outdoor space, in great comfort. Cooks will recognize this exceptional Airbnb by the quality of the knives at their disposal!

    Jessie2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Jose's house cannot be beat! This is the second time we have stayed here and the location is so close to everything- right on the beach, town and restaurants on the beach are steps away. The noise from life outside the house is minimal. All the bedrooms have air conditioning. Jose has updated the kitchen and bathrooms since last time we stayed and they are all fabulous. There is also a new back patio space that was lovely. Washer and dryer (however, you don't really need a dryer) in the house make it super easy to pack light. If you are looking for a family-friendly surf town with a fenced-in house right on the beach- this is your place!!

    Toni2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • If you're going to Samara you can't get a better home than this. If you want a/c throughout, this is not your place. If you want a beautifully spacious porch with ocean breezes, a well stocked kitchen and bathroom, THREE outdoor showers!, and a view of the ocean from that beautiful porch, then you can't beat this; especially for the price. And all the bedrooms have a/c, so you can sleep comfortably. Cheryl was very helpful getting us settled and helping us throughout the week. And Jose could not have been more attentive. He truly is a "super" host and a great ambassador for his beautiful town and country. Even though it was dry season, we'll remember to bring some bug spray next time.

    Philip2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had a truly wonderful stay here. Jose was a great host - thank you!

    Leila2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • It was a superb discovery of José's house, fantastic welcome from Cherryl and his precious help during our stay and we met José during our stay, very friendly and warm and always attentive to our requests. The house is very comfortable, very well equipped to prepare good meals ... with a superb view of the sea. Everything is accessible by walking, grocery store, restaurant ... a small oasis ... we loved our stay. .. thank you for everything José and Cherryl you are very kind ....

  • Bhakti and J are marvellous and their unit is large, bright, and well-appointed. It takes up about half of their home and faces the courtyard with a small pool. J's recommendations about restaurants were appreciated as I had two excellent dinners about 5 minutes walking time from the house. A large new supermarket, a bakery, and various other shops are in the same location. It is about a 15 minute walk to the beach and beachfront restaurants. Five Stars!

    Paul2020-02-14T00:00:00Z

    Bill And Glendy2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Peaceful stay, comfy beds, well equipped - even has a beach umbrella. Well situated. good value, friendly hosts - highly recommend

    Eddie2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Bhakti and J (and Fiona) are the best hosts! They were so welcoming and accommodating upon our arrival and were also very helpful with all of our questions prior to the trip. The place was perfect. Very comfortable with everything we needed including the beautiful new pool right outside! Their location is perfect - everything you need is within easy walking distance, especially the beach! I highly recommend taking a private yoga class with Bhakti - her sweet, positive energy fills the beautiful, open air yoga space (complete with howler monkeys in the backyard trees!). It was an incredible experience that I will never forget. You will love Bhakti and J's place!

    Kelly2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying at Bhakti and J's house. The apartment was everything we needed. It is spacious, fully equipped kitchen, nice bathroom with hot shower, the beds were really good also the sofabeds. We were a family of 4 and it was perfect. The pool is very nice as well. The location of the house is perfect as well - only 5 min walk to the very nice beach:) Two large supermarkeds also within 5 min walk. Super friendly hosts- thanks again:) We highly recommend staying here

    Pernille2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • I expected to be thoroughly happy and Atras Del Sol did not disappoint. I truly enjoyed having the outdoor private yoga class with my sisters. Bhakti and J went above and beyond and were attentive to all requests we had. The location was excellent and minutes from the beach. The cool swimming pool was an added bonus! I am looking forward to returning next year!!

    Patty2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • The room/ small housepart was really clean and also looked so nice. There is a kitchen with all the utils you need. We enjoyed to swim in the clean pool and sit on the veranda. The hosts Bhakti and J are really nice people. We had an nice Yoga Lesson with Bhakti as a teacher and it was great. (It was our first lesson). The location is really good. With a small walk through the village (+/-5 Minutes) you are at the beach. Definitely worth to stay there!

  • Great place. Loved our stay

    Angela2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is located in a small village 10 min walk from Samara. It is well equipped with air conditioning, kitchen and a spacious bathroom. There is also a small garden to dry your bathing clothes. Just around the corner there is a small supermarket with everything you need for everyday life and nearby you can buy delicious fish. The beach is only a few meters away and there are only few tourists. A real place to calmed down, to enjoy life and to be close to Costa Rica. The communication was wonderful and we could ask questions at any time. Thank you for the wonderful time and we would love to come back again!

    Michaela2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Easy access to the beach and prefect distance from the town of Samara. ~10 min walk in the beach to town but none of the traffic or noise. Very large living space as well with fully stocked kitchen

    Zach2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Quiet and clean space near the beach of Sámara. 100% recommended

    Mariana2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Great value! We found ourselves cooking a lot with local produce that was outstanding! This rental is also very secure, we felt safe the entire stay. Arnaud and Valeria from Manage my Property were our hosts and were a pleasure to deal with. Only 15 or 20 minutes beach walk to downtown Samara. Highly reccomend .

    Evan2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This sweet apartment was perfect for us. The location was wonderful for coffee on the beach at sunrise and wine at sunset. We explored in all directions and saw white-faced monkeys (Capuchin), howler monkeys, a coati, iguanas and birds of all types. If you don’t mind a drive on a dirt road there is a fabulous restaurant called Donde Cambute in Isilita. As an added bonus the owner had air conditioning installed while we were there. We really enjoyed visiting with the owner and hope to return next year.

    Phyllis2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Nice neighborhood about 20 min. beach walk to downtown area. Store close by as is main beach, Local taxis from downtown 1000 colones. Good value considering Samara inflated prices.

    Glen2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • The place was great. It was clean, safe and had all the basic utilities. It was the perfect distance away from town to not be in the the middle of it, but walking distance if you wanted too. The house is about 15 min to town walking on the beach, a few blocks from a store, fish market and the beach. A few things that could be clearer in the posting. The house is a few blocks from the beach, while the house is independent, it is in a duplex so you have Neighboors with whom you share the entrance and yard, and internet can be weak if you are trying to use it for work or entertainment. Hosts were responsive and friendly.

    La Casita is a little studio (casita means small house) separated and next to our house, Casa Ventura. It is located in a small very quiet dead-end street, outside Sámara city center. There are 3 beaches within a few minutes walking distance. We do everything on foot or on bicycles, although others prefer to drive. It is private (aside from us) and very secure. You can enjoy the garden and the pool.
    La Casita is a little studio where you can be independent and private. It has Air Conditioning so you can be cool at night, and its own full private bathroom.
    Sámara is a quaint, wonderful little village that has not been transformed by tourists although they are the main source of revenues. You can easily blend in the local population while still enjoying a wonderful french baguette!

    Sara2019-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Vadim was a great host. The location is great. The walk to town and the beach isn't far, but it can be a little sketchy with traffic since there's no sidewalk or shoulder. We enjoyed staying at the place and loved the quieter beach atmosphere of Samara. Definitely recommend it!!

    Shane2019-07-18T00:00:00Z
  • Vadim's place is equipped with everything you would need for a pleasant stay. The beach is a short 5 minutes walk. He is quick to answer our questions.

Horses and cows tend to stroll by in the frontyard with is very nice. Meghan is super-friendly, very welcoming and always helping out with all kind of advices. Best location for a laidback and easy-going-stay in a good location. 100% recommend!

    Robin2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • For me, this place is a gem. Being able to rest in such good vibes in these times of uncertainty was a real blessing. Everything is spotless, lots of places to hang out. Lots of natural light in my room. I had everything I needed. Everything, just everything was easy, smooth and pura vida. For me, knowing Sàmara very well, the location was perfect for me. Being next door to Omael Super and a small soda open very late every day, made it really easy to eat, taking out food when I preferred to stay at home. The beach is a few hundred meters away. The fresh salty air from the ocean is everywhere. Horses come by every day. Thank you Meghan for your open heart, hospitality and friendliness. Home is what it felt like. ❤️

    Maryse2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Mwah 😻!! This is my first AirBnB in Costa Rica and it was perfect for a short stay. It comes with a fridge and eating tools, a comfortable bed, and a bathroom. All you need to cover your basic physical necessities. Meghan is super sweet and friendly, and she’ll give honest recommendations for things to do. The property also attracts interesting and kindhearted travelers so you’ll have fun times :)

    Erika2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • A very nice place to stay in samara, within 1km you reach the beach and the city centre. little shop and bike rental just around the corner. its a small room with a little space to store, a small fridge and some basic dishes, no kitchen. the room is getting pritty warm during dry season, but the community area infront the room gives space. the host meghan is very hospitable and helped us whenever we needed. she made her house to a very special one, since most facilities are handcrafted and with a very creative design. the community areas in the garden and on the deck offer a lot of space and invites you to meet other people, have coffee and chill out. comminication and check in/out were absolutely easy. We recomend to stay at Meghan's!

    Caro Und Maui2020-02-28T00:00:00Z
  • Is a really nice place to stay. I will come back for sure. Its 200 meter for a quite beach (Cangreja). In the corner you can find a supermarket and a soda very cheap and with nice food. Its super easy to get there by bus. And easy access to another beaches. The center is near by and nice. Was a nice place to stay and chill out. The matresses were very confortable. Its nice the room has a fridge and a coffe maker. Meghan gave us thing we need for cooking. Was very helpful. We have a nice time there she also organised a barbecue with all the guests and was super cossy. We come back for sure.

    Come and enjoy our new fully-equipped and cozy studio located just 80 mts off beautiful Samara Beach. This is one of two private studios with its own bathroom and kitchen. The warm and welcoming atmosphere of the studio with its unique location will get you in the Costa Rican "Pura Vida" mode very easily. The mango tree in our garden attracts the monkeys, so often wildlife can be seen. The only thing between you and the Pacific is a path full of coconut and mango trees.
    Casita de los Monos is situated in a wonderful location due to the rustic and very special woodwork of the apartment. You can find this Casita off the beaten path, but five minutes to town center, and 80 mts to the beach. The location can't be beat. Let the sounds of the ocean and the sounds of the monkeys combine to give you a truly unique Costa Rican experience.
    We are in the center and so close to the beach but sandwiched in a green area. There are lots of mango and coconut trees and sometimes wildlife like monkeys, iguanas ect. can been seen.
  • The location is awesome! Steps from the beach, walkable to the whole town, and at the edge of town so nice and quiet at night. The week before I arrived they installed air conditioning which was a life save the week I was there, I was lucky with timing. Sarah arranged a pickup from the airport for me and had great suggestions for massages, yoga, and zip lining. She made my stay very comfortable and fun.

    Alli2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Really great little studio by the beach. Perfect location that is close to town, great restaurants, and the beach. We had everything we needed and Sarah was very friendly and accommodating. Thank you for everything!

  • The house is really beautiful and with attention to detail and complete with everything you need. It is a little warm because there is no air conditioning but with the two fans and airing you sleep well. Sarah is a welcoming host and can give excellent advice!!

    Margherita2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah & Memo were amazing down to earth, genuine hosts. They made us feel so comfortable and welcomed. We stayed 2 weeks in Samara. Sarah was always quick to respond to any questions I had and they both gave us amazing tips for the town. We absolutely loved our stay & fell in love with Samara. This location is perfect for a relaxing stay, steps away from the beach. We will definitely stay here again!

  • During our 6 week language stay we were allowed to live with Sarah and Memo in the casita de los monos. The apartment has everything you need what you need and is extremely clean and nicely decorated. It is very close to the beach and very centrally located and quiet all restaurants and bars are within walking distance. If you have questions, they are always available and gladly give tips for excursions. From the first day we felt very comfortable and at home. I would recommend the casita de los monos to anyone!

Breakfast was very good. Even had a family of monkeys come over during breakfast. 5 min walk to anywhere in town or the beach.

  • I stayed at this place with a friend of mine for one night and we really like the place, even though it was really humid which could have been caused by not turning on the A/C. The hosts were super friendly and always available when we needed something. Looking forward to come back.

    Eddie2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great view and a very confort place. A bit far from the centre if you walk.

    Jose2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • The location of the apartment is privileged by the view to the ocean, very easy to walk or car, although you could hear the loud sound of vehicle traffic, it was mixed with the waves of the sea, we feel very comfortable, it is very safe, the location is perfect, very close to the sea (4 minutes walking) and a little away from the hustle and bustle of the town, the apartment is well equipped with the necessary utensils to pass it without need although a screen to see good movies would be great to relax after of pleasant days of sun and sea, the internet was very efficient We loved the place surrounded Green fresh, iguanas climbing the trees, on the balcony we had the visit of a Pixote (coati) we heard howler monkeys that greeted in the morning and in the afternoon . Martin was always aware of us ready to help if necessary, but everything was perfect, To travelers who want to visit Sámara We recommend this accommodation is ideal discreet safe and quiet.

  • Very nice place for 2 or 3 persons. Great view over the ocean. Very large garage so you have always a cool car when you starts the day. You don,t need a AC because the vans do there work well.

    Chris2019-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Prime location! We rented a car and had access to 4 beautiful local beaches within 15-20 minute drives from the house! Waking up in the morning with a view of the ocean was super relaxing! Favorite part of my stay was eating breakfast on the patio while watching iguanas play. I’ll be back for sure!

    Tiffany2019-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Five minute walk to the beach makes this a perfect place. You can see and hear the waves from this spot! Expect to hear howler monkeys and a variety of bird songs in the mornings. You get lots of privacy in this apartment!

    Jeff2019-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We had a fantastic time here! The view of the ocean from the balcony was beautiful and you can watch the sunset right from there. You can also hear the ocean at night and in January there was a nice breeze for a comfortable sleep. There are howler monkeys (this is the rain forest after all) which can be noisy at night and if you haven't heard howler monkeys before, you might get a bit of a scare the first time! It was very private and we felt very safe in the apartment. It was about a 10 minute walk to town which we had no problem with at all. We had a little bit of a tricky time with the toilet at first but Agustin had it fixed IMMEDIATELY. Overall, we were very happy with the accommodations and would highly recommend. Was so sad to leave.

    Hi! I'm Patrick the owner of this condo and the of the building. I am so excited you're searching for a great place to stay in Sámara and that you've found Alta Vista. I don't believe you need to look anywhere else - I am confident, and the reviews back this up, that our quality, location, and 'at home' feeling make us the best accommodation in Sámara for your vacation! This listing is for Condo Begonia on the second floor, a modern luxury two bedroom, two bathroom condo. As the owner-manager, my philosophy is to provide a place to stay that I would be ecstatic to discover and eager to come back to as a repeat guest. My goal is to exceed your expectations by providing a world-class stay in a beautiful unique location! I completed the construction of Alta Vista December 2008 and no one would believe the building is ten years old - I have a full-time maintenance employee, Dennis, who keeps the property freshly painted and spotless. I work diligently to maintain all the electrical appliances as well as linens and kitchen accouterments like new. Laura, my administrator, and Xinnia the housekeeper round out the team - a huge part of what makes Alta Vista #1 in Sámara! For a quick glance at our amenities, all condos have free high-speed wifi internet, air conditioning, fully stocked kitchens, secure covered parking, cable TV internet ready for Netflix etc, and a splash pool. What do our guests say about the property? That it looks better in person than the pictures show! A great compliment, I'm not sure how to get better pictures ( I hired a professional) but I think sometimes the synergy of a beautiful condo with breathtaking views combined with a meticulously maintained building, the best location in town and a great staff focused on exceeding your expectations - adds up to guests falling in love with Alta Vista. Location, location, location! You don't need a car to stay at this property; the majority of our guests take the short stroll two blocks down to the beach with amenities we provide such as beach chairs, beach towels, beach umbrella, cooler and boogie board. Walking to town is a gorgeous tropical 15 min walk along the beach. If you prefer to have a car there is a designated spot for you on-site in the secure, covered parking garage. Security? Best in Samara. Meet Dennis, a local of Sámara and national fúbol (soccer) hero who played for the Costa Rican National team. He essentially lives at Alta Vista cleaning and gardening during the day and watches over the building at night. Rest assured you and your loved ones are safe! He also helps with your baggage, the bbq, finding the fresh catch of the day, or helping you to learn Spanish! He is a gem! In line with the best service in town is Laura, who will meet you at check in! What other rental condo or home has this feature? Most simply have a lock box. Not us. Laura greets you with a smile, speaking English or Spanish, and will show you the building and your condo and answer all your questions. She knows the building inside and out as well as the town of Sámara making her a priceless addition to the team. She's available throughout your stay to help out and she'll be there at your check out as well. I'm available as well via email or phone call. Check in time is 3pm. Check out time is 11am. Both times are subject to change - it depends if someone checked out earlier that day, or if someone is checking in later that day. If someone is checking in later that day, the check-out time is 10am. If someone checked out earlier that day, check in is at 5pm. Please check with us - we will work to accommodate your needs! What else sets us apart? Each of the condos faces the beach and ocean with floor to ceiling sliding glass doors. The sliding glass doors open to the furnished balcony where you can enjoy your morning coffee or a sunset glass of wine with the best view in town. The balcony offers what few others can offer - outdoor living with a view! The condo is not directly on the beach but second best, it looks an empty over horse pasture to the beach and ocean. The recently re-paved tranquil road in front of the building is a dead-end at the beach which equals a safe and quiet walk to the sand, as well as pleasant people watching from your balcony. The building is located on the tip of the bay of Sámara, not in the downtown area, which is why I bought this property. It is close enough to enjoy the town and far enough away not to hear town when you want peace and quiet which is one of many reasons families prefer to stay at Alta Vista. The modern decor inside the condo allows you to relax fully. The floor to ceiling windows facing the beach and ocean is a constant reminder you are in paradise! Ocean breezes flow through the condo if you choose to keep the windows open, or air conditioners will keep you cool - one in each bedroom as well as in the living room. The fully stocked kitchen has all you need, from full-sized stainless steel appliances to in-sink garbage disposal, it is modern and lacks for nothing. There is a shared washer/dryer for all guests to use for free, I simply ask you to provide your own detergent. For additional outdoor living, I offer all guests the use of the shared Congo Lounge, the top (fourth) floor roofed patio terrace. There are hammocks, sofa's, armchairs, and a dining set. The view from your condo balcony is excellent, and multiply that a few times and you get an exquisite view from the Congo Lounge. Not only are the views of the beach breathtaking, but the forest views behind the building are also home to iguanas, pelicans, and monkeys! The trees team with families of monkeys perusing the branches for a snack. Look closely and you'll see tiny baby monkey's riding along on their mothers back. The splash pool immediately in front of the building, perfectly visible from your balcony, receives the glorious sun all morning and is shaded in the afternoon making it perfect for families who explore the beach and surfing in the morning and lounge by the pool in the afternoon. The pool is only 4ft deep and it has huge stairs for growing children to play on. There are patio lounge chairs as well as a dining set and BBQ for all guests to enjoy. As if all this wasn't enough to set us apart, we offer including regular cleaning. For guests staying more than four nights we include is a light cleaning every fourth day (mid-week) where we take out the trash, change the bathroom towels, sweep and mop the condo. For reservations more than seven nights, we provide a full cleaning on the 8th day, and every 8th day after that. The full cleaning includes everything provided in the light cleaning plus changing of the bed linens and kitchen cleaning. More cleaning is an option at an additional cost. Please note my team and I work exceptionally hard to keep the Condos perfect but there are occasional problems that arise, such as with the a/c, or power outages, ants, or on very rare occasions the wifi is finicky. Just please be patient, it is Costa Rica! Let us know and we'll start right away to get the problem straightened out. Our goal is to exceed your expectations by providing a world-class stay in a beautiful unique location! This Condo, Condo Begonia, is on the second floor. It is a two bedroom, two bathroom condo approximately 1400 square feet. The master bedroom has a king bed and ensuite bathroom with views of the ocean and beach. The guest bedroom has two individual beds with its own balcony and views of the forest behind the building . The kitchen is white-line with first-world size and quality appliances, full-size stainless steel refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, stove with range-top, microwave with extractor fan, in-sink garbage disposal, and all the smaller appliances like blender, toaster and coffee maker. The living room has a flat-screen TV with the local cable service and DVD player giving you access to Netflix and other online streaming services. The living room has a plush chaise-lounge sofa combo with the main sofa folding out to the floor for a queen size sofa-sleeper, and the chaise-lounge which can work as a single bed. The kitchen, dining area and family room all combine to a great room or open floor plan design. The kitchen has a breakfast nook with seating for four. The dining table has seating for six. The mattresses in the bedrooms are orthopedics - I personally picked out and approved each mattress - and I stay in each condo from time to time as a perk of the job as well as quality control - to ensure you get a good nights rest. The bathrooms are modern and minimalist. You can flush the toilet paper just like North America or Europe! I designed the building with a two-chamber septic tank (same as I have here in Colorado) which allows you to flush toilet paper and just as you're probably used to - nothing else please! In Costa Rica, the normal septic tank has just one chamber so you can't flush toilet paper. The showers and faucets have hot water. The kitchen sink has a garbage disposal but please just like at your home - nothing more than plate scraps! No fruit peels, no fish bones, no coffee grinds please. All my listings have instant booking so if your ready go ahead and book! All prices are in US dollars. The system won't let you book dates that are not available. The pricing software automatically gives a 10% discount for a stay over six nights, and a discount of 33% of stays longer than 27 nights - essentially one week free for every four weeks stayed. The $150 damage deposit is pre-authorized to your card so you will only be charged in the case of something broken or missing. I have a legitimate Hotel license in Costa Rica, I pay taxes to the government, all legal establishments as such pay 13% tax. I believe in supporting the country that supports this piece of paradise! Please ask any questions, I'm here to help! Sincerly, Patrick McGoey Owner
    The space inside Condo Begonia can be described as simple, modern, clean, and relaxing. The giant floor-to-ceiling windows that face the beach and ocean are the biggest picture frame you could have! There is a private balcony with furniture to enjoy this view from. The beds are upscale as are the linens, provided by Alta Vista. The open floor plan allows for easy movement, relaxation, and enjoyment of the view. There are three individual a/c units to keep you cool.
    Alta Vista is in the Samara neighborhood of Cangrejal, on the north end of the bay of Samara. Cangrejal is a Costa Rican neighborhood, an old fishing village, and is very quiet with no loud music or bars. There is a great casual restaurant in Cangrejal just down the street towards the beach from Alta Vista called "La Perla" which offers great healthy local cuisine at reasonable prices. Two blocks away from Alta Vista opposite the beach is a popular supermarket named "La Iguana Verde", a medium size grocery and liquor store. The neighborhood like Sámara is safe in general. However always be aware of your personal belongings on the beach or in public. Please be safe yourself and considerate to the other guests of the building by closing and locking your parking garage gate.
  • Wonderful condo that is a 5 minute walk away from the beach and also a very close walk to get to town and restaurants. The space is very comfortable with a fully stocked kitchen, nice bathrooms and great outside deck. Check in and out were easy as we were met exactly when we arrived. Highly recommend.

    Christopher2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • We knew from our research this would be a nice condo, but were blown away on arrival by a condo that truly exceeded expectations. The condo has everything we needed for a great stay: comfortable beds, well equipped and clean kitchen, great wifi, aircon. The beach is so close, but the splash pool was a nice extra we appreciated. On our last day there were monkeys in the trees surrounding the condos - it was super fun watching them swing and jump from tree to tree!

    Jonathan2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent location- close to the beach, but also away from congestion. Alta Vista has a nice vibe. Communication was excellent. The on-site people (Laura and Denis) helped with everything that came up. When we return to Sámara, we will definitely stay at Alta Vista again.

    Peter2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • This was even better than I imagined when I booked it. Incredible views and incredible space, easy check in and check out with Laura the manager, walking distance to the beach and the town. It was perfect. The condo blew our minds, it was so lovely. Laundry on site, three balconies, bright and clean and airy. We had an incredible time. We almost had to make ourselves leave the condo to go do things because we were so relaxed and at home there. Our only complaint is that the beds were uncomfortable and VERY LOUD any time you moved a muscle. That may not bother some but it was an issue for us (my 1 year old daughter was sleeping in the room with us) however, it wouldn’t prevent me from booking again because the views and space itself were so incredible.

    Amanda2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • really nice place to enjoy and lay back. the rooftop and pool is perfect for a beer after a long day at the beach. the pictures really dont lie. I would really recommend patricks condo to everyone who wants to have a good time in samara.

    Colin2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Sparkling clean, plenty of space for my family of four, walking distance to the beach, many local sodas, and markets for groceries. Refreshing, small pool to cool off in or lounge by at the condo. We saw over a dozen monkeys playing in trees next to the condo, also lots of coati, lizards, etc. Covered, secure parking and onsite security (although we felt completely safe in Samara during our entire stay and walked around town at night with no issue). Highly recommend!

    Kari2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • IT was a beautiful place to stay. Everything was perfect. We spent a very good Time in the condo Bégonia

    Fanny2019-08-18T00:00:00Z

    Playa Samara, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    Come and enjoy our new fully-equipped and cozy studio located just 80 mts off beautiful Samara Beach. This is one of two private studios with its own bathroom and kitchen. The warm and welcoming atmosphere of the studio with its unique location will get you in the Costa Rican "Pura Vida" mode very easily. The mango tree in our garden attracts the monkeys, so often wildlife can be seen. The only thing between you and the Pacific is a path full of coconut and mango trees.
    Casita de los Monos is situated in a wonderful location due to the rustic and very special woodwork of the apartment. You can find this Casita off the beaten path, but five minutes to town center, and 80 mts to the beach. The location can't be beat. Let the sounds of the ocean and the sounds of the monkeys combine to give you a truly unique Costa Rican experience.
    We are in the center and so close to the beach but sandwiched in a green area. There are lots of mango and coconut trees and sometimes wildlife like monkeys, iguanas ect. can been seen.
  • Sarah's casita de los monos is super beautiful, well located and fully corresponds to the descriptions, we really liked it there :-)

    Christiane2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Small wooden chalet, modern, clean with all amenities except hot water, no heat needed. 30 seconds walk from the sea. The hosts are wonderful. Pura Vida

    Patrick2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly as advertised. Great location, walking distance to everything you could possibly need and most importantly, 100m to the beach. Sarah and family were very welcoming and offered suggestions and recommendations. The space was exceptionally clean, especially for an ‘open air’ space. The fans kept us cool at night but certainly if you cannot live without a/c then this may not be for you. Overall ,thoughtful amenities and hospitality, for a relaxed and low maintenance holiday.

    Kayla2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah and her family made us welcome and were there if we needed them but we're never intrusive. We loved Samara and this little studio made our stay even better. The studio had everything you need and was so clean.

    Sarah2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Casita de los Monos is a sweet, little spot from which to explore Samara. You can park your car nearby, and walk all over town. The kitchen is tiny but well equipped with everything you will need to make simple meals if you wish to. During your stay, you will see and hear howler monkeys in the many trees surrounding the cottage, and you will be made very welcome by your host, Sarah, and her family.

    Dion2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Very cozy place and a perfect location next to the beach! We had a very good stay in this little house. Recommendable!

    Gemma2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • One of our best stays throughout our time in Costa Rica. A unique and beautiful home, what felt like staying in a tree house. At night you were lulled to sleep by the sound of the sea and in the morning it felt as though you were waking up in the canopy’s of the trees, and even sometimes the gentle sounds of the Howler monkeys could be heard. Sarah and her family were extremely kind and warm, and made you feel instantly welcome. Samara has a the calm and friendly ora, where everyone greets you with a hola. I would recommend Sarah’s home to anybody looking for something special.

    Holly2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • The time with Sarah, Memo and Emma was great! The wooden cottage is furnished with great attention to detail and just a stone's throw from the beach. On the way there is a super surf school with board rental (Pato's). You are almost in the middle of town and still has it quiet and comfortable. Sarah gave us great advice and was super helpful if we had any questions. We would not have loved to leave.

    Playa Sámara, Provincia de Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    This fabulous house is nestled in the mountains, only 15 minutes from the beaches of Samara, and it is the definition of a peaceful retreat. Come here to be alone and write your novel, relax, or to spend quality time as a family. Situated on 20 acres of private land, filled with a variety of fruit trees (coffee, chili peppers, star fruit, plantains, lime, and more) you will experience the natural beauty of Costa Rica immersed in the sights and sounds of nature.
    The house has luxury finishes and fixtures, an open floor plan kitchen/dining/living area and abundant outdoor space. The two bedrooms each feature their own private baths, and comfortable beds. There is plenty of closet and storage space. While the inside of the house is lovely and comfortable, it is the outdoor space which makes this home truly unique. This house has stunning ocean & mountain views and is surrounded by immaculately maintained grounds. The pool looks out across the jungle mountains towards to the ocean. The property is fenced and gated.
    The Retreat is located 15 minutes outside of Samara, near a small village called Chinampas. The house itself does not have any nearby neighbors. The village is remote but residents are friendly and enjoy seeing visitors. Playa Samara is the nearest larger town, and features many excellent restaurants, bars, and nightlife. Samara is known as one of the safest swimming beaches in Costa Rica, and is an excellent beach for learning to surf. There is abundant shade on the beach, as well as restaurants and bars along edge of the beach. There is a small grocery store nearby (about a 7 minute drive), and you can find just about any food you need in the town of Samara.
  • This is the second year we have stayed at the Nicoya Retreat and it was spectacular again. See my review from February 2019. This year was very similar although we had children and grandchildren with us this year and stayed even longer. A really special treat this year were the howler monkeys who came to visit and our grandchildren got to see them up close. Many thanks to Christopher, Katie and onsite manager Frank for making this family vacation a great success. We hope to come again often.

    Loren2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • The views from this home were absolutely spectacular, and Katie and Frank were incredibly helpful and responsive. Thank you for your hospitality!

    Becky2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was perfect!!! Frank knew how to welcome us, advise us and help us to perfection! The place is magic and we couldn't have asked for more for our family vacation !! The gardener even helped us prepare an excellent typical Costa Rican ceviche !! Wow !!!!

    Marianne2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing view & great location. Would definitely stay here again ☺️

    Marzieh2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • The Retreat was every bit as nice as it appears in the photos. The view is just stunning. Howler monkeys, birds, and butterflies were seen often. The pool is just right for drinks and watching the sunset. The master bedroom and bed were so comfortable! We didn’t use the a/c at all, just opened the windows and enjoyed the fresh air, cool breezes and insect noises. The kitchen was well equipped. The WiFi was reliable. Frank was very friendly and always willing to help - he lives just a few hundred meters away, but was very respectful and never intruded on our privacy, although we welcomed conversation with him. The drive up the “hill” was worth every bump - and there are a few of those. You’ll definitely want 4x4. It was 15 minutes to Sámara from the house. More like 20 on the way back - uphill. Sámara is a wonderful little beach town with plenty of places to eat.

    Sandy2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Breath taking views and property. Beautiful home that is fully equipped. Beds were very comfortable and great washrooms and showers. Adventure getting to the house which our kids loved. Definitely need 4x4 for 6min steep hill drive up and you will want to arrive in daylight for first time making the drive. Our family felt very safe on their gated property and Frank was a pleasure to deal with and assessable if we needed him. Katie and Christopher were available to answer any questions both during booking and our stay. Would definitely recommend!

    Peter2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • My family of four had an amazing time in this beautiful mountain top home. Chris was very responsive whenever we had questions, and was always very helpful. It was nice and quiet at night and had beautiful views during the day. We had nightly visits from big roads which was always fun for us! Thanks for such an incredible stay!

    Katie2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • The house is open and spacious with lovely views of the mountain and the sea beyond. We enjoyed sitting outside in the morning listening to the howler monkeys in the nearby trees. Although the initial drive at night up the dirt road to the house was a little daunting, even in our 4x4, the directions were spot on and once we drove the road in the daylight we realized it really wasn't bad. I would definitely recommend this house for anyone who wants to be someplace nicer than the hotels in Playa Samara and/or who wants to be a little ways away from the action.

We include a delicious breakfast right on the beach at our restaurant LuvBurger! Organic coffee or tea, a choice of traditional gallo pinto, pancakes, avocado toast, or smoothie bowl awaits you!!
    Casa Santosha is located steps from the beach and right in the center of town... everything is in walking distance, grocery stores, restaurants, bars, surf schools, tour companies, souvenir shops, and much more!!
  • Great place close to the beach! Wonderful breakfast included with our stay that we enjoyed on the beach!

  • Sandra's place is great. Super close to beach. Breakfast at Luv Burger was delicious. Cute space. Fully stocked kitchen, though cooking was challenging because of the heat.

  • Right on the beach, and right in town. Location was the highlight

  • The absolute BEST location! Highly recommend this spot, you will not be disappointed.

  • Very clean

    Mari2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Sandra's place is the most perfectly located in all of Samara. Also the LuvBurger breakfast is an amazing perk!

  • Ideal location! A few meters from the beach, the place is very secure, clean, the family who lives on site and manages the place is very nice even if not very communicative. Equipment of the apartment very good, everything was very clean and in good condition. We had brought a mosquito net and the hook was already in place, the top! Small flat for breakfast included at the Luv Burger, they open at 9am and are not really operational at that time (incomplete menu, closed grill, tables not cleaned ....) We had concerns about Wifi, or rather no wifi during our stay but it also feels good to disconnect, and the place is suitable for it. But apart from that everything was perfect in Samara and we would have liked to stay longer in this little paradise!

  • Sandra's place is so cute and perfect. It's pretty much the best location in Samara, just steps from the beach, and right in the centre of town. Close to everything you could need. Very safe, cute and very clean. Check-in was a breeze and I enjoyed my stay very much!

    In the center of Samara, two minutes walking distance from the beach. We're walking distance to grocery store, banks, local restaurants, bars and pharmacy. Our 2 villas offer 3 apartments, lovely swimming pool with Jacuzzi. Each apartment is totally independent with bathrooms, hot water, fully equipped kitchen, large terrace.
    The apartment is per 2 people. ($15 each extra person) Bedroom with king size bed and a sofa in the living room, 1 bathroom, comfortable kitchen, a terrace to relax. Table and stools in the living room for breakfast and a table with 4 chairs on the terrace for lunch and dinner. Air conditioning and ceiling fan to ensure cool during the day and night. The apartment is very bright, lots of windows. Internet access available, TV, safe and private parking..and finally, the beautiful swimming pool with Jacuzzi, with colored lights for a warm and relaxing atmosphere in the evening. If you are a couple and you need just one bedroom, you can ask for the larger apartment, but with the price of small!
    Relaxing atmosphere, beach life, sports, surf, friendly environment for families, great restaurants, sunny and warm all year round.
  • Simply a wonderful little oasis with a fantastic host. Quiet and private with a great location. The best place to stay in Samara

    Benoite2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • A super place. Nice room and kitchen, nice pool and so clean everywhere. We could not wish it better.

  • My husband and I stayed at Elenas property again this year, this is our second time staying with her(2 years in a row). It is so nice to arrive to a familiar place when traveling away from home. The staff were the same as last year and are always so friendly and welcoming. This property is gated and feels very safe which is a huge thing for us when we travel. The apartments themselves are all very well maintained and clean, and the private pool and lounge area is a saving grace when it is +35 and you need a cool place to hang. It is well located and is such a short walk to the beach and ocean every day. It is surrounded by so many amazing food places as well! The only thing we have a hard time with is the beds, they are quite hard and not very comfortable, but if the beds were upgraded to a memory foam or something at some point... I don’t think I would never leave haha. Sleeping on the bed for 7 - 10 days is hard for us (I have chronic back pain to begin with) but its a small price to pay for the rest of the property. Also, if you travel in groups or with another couple this is a great property if you can snag 2 of the apartments! Separate living areas for each couple or group but still in the same compound! We plan on continuing to visit Costa Rica yearly and hope Elena has room for us again next year! Thank you Elena for helping make another trip to Costa Rica successful!!

  • Great place

    Oscar2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Elena's place was excellent. In the heart of Samara, 5 minute walk to the beach, secure free parking, clean and bright unit, and right off the pool (surrounded by plants) which the kids (3 and 5) used all the time. Very quiet, despite being just off the main road. The large supermarket right across the road was super convenient for supplies and use of the kitchen. Great value, would stay there again.

    Ian2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • A very cozy accommodation with a short distance to everything. Restaurants and the beach within easy walking distance. Maid service every day. Nice little pool. Playa Samara is a wonderful little village with a beautiful beach. Can really recommend this accommodation.

    Very well located in the center, 2 min walk from the beach, in a quiet street within walking distance to all restaurants, bars, shops & supermarkets. Renovated Jan 2020, the room has a private en-suite bathroom. It' s spacious, clean, and has all the comfort you need: dble bed, AC, WIFI, closet and smart TV There is a fully equipped shared kitchen as well as a little sitting area in front with table and chairs. The shared spaces are only with 1 other room. Come and soak in the relaxed vibe!
    The room is very well located, it is in the center of everything but in a quiet street with little traffic. You might hear the howler monkeys in the morning though :) The property includes another independent double room and a bigger house that accommodates 4. If you're looking to book for more people, don't hesitate to check the other listings in my profile.
    Samara has a laid back tropical feel which we hope you will enjoy. There is a lot to do in the area and we're happy to give recommendations tailored to what you prefer.
