The space

Welcome to our comfortable and cozy condominium located in Guanacaste, between Playa Samara and Playa Carrillo. You can actually walk to these beaches in 4-20 minutes depending on the final destination (and how fast you walk, of course!) This condo is perfect for 3 adults or even a couple with two small children as the sofa in the kitchen area pulls out and becomes a sofa bed.

The condo is part of the Monte Laguna Residence, which is described by TripAdvisor as "excellent". It was built in 2010 and offers complete peace of mind with 24 hours full security guarded gates. The Residence features beautiful greenery and a natural lush environment, In addition, it has its own well, waste water management system, children's play area, and shaded parks.

Features of the accommodation include:

Second floor location (there is an elevator), an entrance with closet, a shower with separate toilet, and a fully equipped kitchen/living area. There is a spacious bedroom with a good sized balcony, large enough to eat in and relax. The condo has ceiling fans and AC. The kitchen is complete with cooking utensils, microwave and refrigerator.
The outdoor features include a large pool, gazebo, deck/patio, and a charcoal grill.

Staying in our condo will give you the chance to enjoy multiple activities such as swimming, fishing, surfing, cycling, snorkeling, hiking, horseback riding, wildlife observing, golfing, rafting, kayaking, miniature golf, zoo,and many more. However, you can always just relax by the beautiful pool while enjoying the peaceful green surroundings.

About Samara and Carrillo:

Samara and Carrillo are small coastal towns, still mostly run and populated by Ticos. The atmosphere can be described as somewhat bohemian, very laid back and in a nut shell: PURA VIDA. You will find public schools (as well as a new semi-private bilingual one - Samara Pacific School), a hospital clinic, a private English speaking doctor, pharmacies, churches, 2 banks, 2 football grounds, a police station, dvd shop, postal office and a small fishing community. There are also several internet cafes, various restaurants and bars, coffee shops, tour agencies, car rental enterprises, and two commercial centers. A gym and organic food store opened recently and they host a farmers market every Friday from 3-6

Two internationally acclaimed schools, one for learning Spanish, the other, the art of massage are also based in Samara.

Last but not least, just a 45 minute drive away is Nicoya, (a rather large city for Costa Rican standards), that has most everything you could need -including a hospital.

This apartment was perfect for us. Close to Samara and beaches! Just stayed a few nights but we enjoyed it very much. The air-conditioning worked very well. The WiFi was good and the bed was comfortable. It was a double but was fine for us. Well stocked kitchen! Overall very comfortable and clean. Costa Rica is a beautiful country but was very very hot. Definitely need air conditioning. Oh and the pool was great as well.

Private and secure location that is close to town but remote enough to not be in town. Near two beaches and has a nice pool for relaxing by. Internet was not reliable so make sure you have data available if needed.

Communication with Laura, the property manager was great. Perfect directions to the condo and easy access. Nice place to relax after a day at the beach or in town. Although the unit was 4km from downtown Sámara it was only a 5 minute walk to beautiful Playa Carrillo. There was also a delightful pool onsite and a washing machine.

Together with my small family, made up of a lovely wife and two great children, we have visited many places and different countries. The exposure to different cultures just fascinates me. When we visit a country, we spend time visiting museums, theaters, historical sites,..etc. But we also love to just walk in the streets, try to chat with the "natives"! and have coffee in coffee bars. I also love to visit the local markets, and sample street food, while my wife is on her shopping expeditions :-)
In addition to traveling, we LOVE reading. We read everything, fiction, biography, politics, economy, adventure...and of course, travel books, and my wife has a large collection of cook books. The problem now is that books in our house are advancing slowly to take over all our living space....HELP!
