Simple. Rustic. Beachfront.

If you're looking to slow down, disconnect and experience authentic Costa Rica, then The Sandbox might be the place for you.

The highlight of this adult only property is it's beach front location. It is located in a quiet neighborhood just a short 10 minute walk on the beach to Samara center.

This 2nd floor studio apartment provides expansive Pacific Ocean views. Fall asleep to the sound of the waves and wake up to the sounds of the howler monkeys.

Michele’s place is perfection! Amazing spot right on the beach, walkable to town center and restaurants. Communication was great and was around to give tips and answer any of our questions. We definitely hope to stay here in the future!

This little retreat topped off our trip to Samara. Perfectly located, furnished just right, and Michele is great! It was nice to eat at the restaurants along the beach but we also appreciated cooking in our own little kitchen. On our way we debated asking for air conditioning but…

Our second stay at the Sandbox. Still very impressed by the location. Finally met Michele who gave us some great tips on tidal pools and places to eat. Great outdoor shower for rinsing off after a swim. Not a 5star hotel but that wasn't what we were looking for or expecting.
