Samara is a sweet town which boasts an exquisite and safe beach, beautiful and friendly people, great restaurants, and easy access to all amenities!
Ocean front bars and restaurants featuring sand floors are the perfect place for lounging and dining while watching the beach scenery. At night there is a choice of cocktail bars, live music, open mic nights and if you are still not tired you can dance the rest of the night away!
On the weekends you can enjoy any number of local activities and tours including: surfing, snorkeling, kayaking, stand up paddleboard, canopy tours, nature hikes, or simply visit the surrounding beaches. It’s not uncommon to visit 3 different beaches in a weekend!
The preferred method of transportation in Samara is by bicycle and there are several bike rental options available in town! The central location of Casa Rana also makes walking everywhere easy and convenient.
Other Things to Note
Our villas are located on the beautiful campus of a working massage therapy training school! They are only available to rent when the students are not in session, but that doesn't mean the massages stop! We have therapists on staff year round that provide top-notch treatments in air conditioned private rooms right here on the property!
Kat was there to meet us to get us settled in and was flexible as we added some days onto our trip. The grounds are great, the pool is awesome and the location close to the beach is ideal. When we had an issue with some ants Kat responded quickly and got it sorted straight away. Overall a great spot. We are a family of 5 (kids are 2/6/10). We even got a massage while there!

About the Host, Kat
I am a California girl now living my dream life abroad in beautiful Samara, Costa Rica! I work as the Property Manager of Tropical Oasis Villas & Spa and Supervisor of the Samara Massage Center.
While attending university I discovered a passion for education, community activism, and travel that continues to this day. In 2011 I decided to pursue my passion for teaching and volunteering with youth and made the move to Costa Rica to earn my TEFL certificate. I quickly discovered my love of life in Latin America and the warmth and generosity of the Tico way of life. I decided to make Samara my home and have since taught and volunteered with various public and private schools in the community.
Currently, I am happily dedicating my efforts to support the educational pursuits of the students of the Costa Rica School of Massage Therapy. It is on the campus of this oasis of a school that the villas for rent are located. A great opportunity for you to enjoy the peaceful campus grounds and beautiful pool while they are unoccupied by students and staff.
In my free time I enjoy reading in a shaded hammock, swimming in warm, clear ocean waters or refreshing rivers, exploring the Spanish language, and walking the beautiful beaches of Costa Rica. I will be your contact person for the duration of your stay and I would be happy to share tips and stories with you to make your experience one you will never forget! :)
