Interaction with Guests
It depends on the guests. Some of our guests like to interact a lot with us (and we love it), and others mostly like to do their own thing (yep, we love that, too!) Our goal is for a guests to be happy and comfortable during their stay at Cuisine Miguel.
I am supposed to write here what I like most about the neighborhood around our home. Tropical breezes, beautiful view of the ocean and island of Chora off our front porch and the guest's bedroom, waking up to the sound of a multitude of local birds, squirrels, geckos, and of the Howler Monkeys that come to feast on the Mango Trees in our yard.
Our beachfront home is in a short walking distance to local restaurants, galleries, supermarkets, surf and paddle board lessons and kayaking. You absolutely do not need a car during your stay here in Samara, but we have ample parking in our driveway, just beside the hosue.
Other Things to Note
Miguel is an excellent Chef. We usually have Sunday Dinners, kind of Family Style. We typically serve between 3-12 people. Either your own private dinner, or we may have a few more people from different places in the world join us. The cost is usually $10 USD per person, bring your own beverages. The price varies, of course, depending on the menu choice. More intimate dinners may be arranged with Miguel on other evenings of the week. Those prices usually range from about $15 pp to $25 pp, again, depending on the menu. For Sunday dinners, the first person or couple or family to book, usually makes the basic menu request: seafood, beef, pork, poultry, vegetarian..... Then, Miguel shops on Sunday morning for the freshest supply of each and makes his decision based on the initial request. Often, a typical Sunday Dinner includes all of the above. Come Hungry! Here is one of our reviews of Miguel's Sunday Dinners:
From Andy Cary:
Cuisine Miguel is a culinary experience that you will never forget and will leave you happy and more than satisfied. Each course delivers sensational flavors and will literally have you begging to know what’s in there that makes it taste so good.

Sarah was an exceptional host! Their house is located on the beach and we enjoyed being at the house almost as much as being on the beach! The kitchen is fully equipped and we could make breakfast and then enjoy it on the porch that faced the beautiful ocean. Our bedroom window faced the beach and during the night there is a nice breeze coming from the ocean. Sarah was extremely friendly and generous. She shared many stories and made us feel welcome. We can't wait to come back to Samara, and we would love to stay with Sarah and Miguel next time we come.
La chambre était propre et Sara et son fils Jack nous ont très bien accueilli.
L'emplacement est parfait, tranquille et le centre-ville de Samara est facilement accessible à pied le long de la plage.
Par contre, l'endroit et le terrain semblent plutôt laissé à l'abandon. Il ne faut donc pas être difficile et trop regardant des alentours.
Nous avons bien apprécié notre séjour à Samara !
I only have small complaint that room gets really hot maybe just a better fan other than that I wish I could have found Samara and you guys earlier.
Great find,right on the beach 2min walk to town.very relaxing stay at Casa Miguel wish I could have stayed longer than 3days hope to be back next year
This was my first time using airb&b, AND my first time in CR. I rented a car and drove from Liberia. Sarah and Miguel planned for me to call when I arrive and meet me at a local bar in order to give me more accurate directions to their house. I'm glad they did.
Their place is the PERFECT place for someone who needs a bit of privacy (from the main street and restaurants/shops), but still wants to be close enough to experience everything Samara has to offer. (Further to drive, but a 5 min WALK on the beach).
The room was clean, and Sarah, her son and Miguel were extremely warm and welcoming. I immediately felt at home. They were helpful when I asked for help, directions, or a suggestion, but also gave me lots of space to enjoy my vacation. As a single female traveling alone, I felt that both Sarah and Miguel were vigilant without being overbearing. I could tell they cared that I was safe and having fun, and loving Samara as much as they do.
I couldn't have had a better experience! Thank you S&J&M for a BEAUTIFUL stay in Samara! I will be back :)
(J- make sure you keep dumping the chickens!)
The room is in an excellent location right on the beach and just a 5 min walk to town. Miguel and Sara are very friendly and made me feel comfortable in their home. Wish I could have stayed longer.
Sarah Miguel and Jack were very welcoming and kind. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Our room was comfortable and we had all we needed. I found having our own little fridge in our room very convenient. The location is perfect with the ocean basically in the back yard and only about a 5 minute walk to the Main Street in Samara. Thank you Sarah, Miguel and Jack for receiving us with such warmth and kindness!

Hola! Miguel is originally from Germany. He moved to Playa Samara in 2008. Sarah has been coming to Samara since August 2011. Sarah moved here from Florida in Feb. 2013. We both LOVE it here. We have met so many wonderful people from all over the world. Miguel is a chef and guitar player. Our favorite night of the week is Sunday. That's when we have our special Sunday Dinner. It is usually for about 8 people. Miguel usually prepares a 5 course meal, and then we sit around the front porch playing guitar and talking. House Guests who wish to join in on the meal usually pitch in for groceries to cover the cost of the meal, and they bring their own beverages. We have a dog (Latina) and a cat (Flo). I'd like to say that we rescued them, but, actually, they rescued us. They are "beach pets"and typically come and go as they please. Both are very friendly and sweet. We'd love to meet you! Mi Casa es su Casa! Hasta luego!
