Come share our sunny, open house sandwiched between a coconut grove and a mango tree grove in beautiful Samara beach with us. This is a two bedroom house and we rent the second bedroom out to guests. Located only 25m off the beach, the only thing between you and the waves is a dirt path that winds through the palm trees.

The space

This is a two bedroom house and we rent the second bedroom out to guests. Located only 25m off the beach, the only thing between you and the waves is a dirt path that winds through the palm trees. This small house boasts an enclosed garden, a guest room with a new double bed mattress as well as a ceiling fan and a new standing fan, bathroom with a hot water shower, an open living room and kitchen space, Wi-Fi, washing machine and an outdoor shower. Go to sleep listening to the soft crashing of the waves, wake up to long lazy walks, or lazy surfs in Samara's peaceful crescent moon shaped bay. Watch the monkeys and iguanas in their natural environment, enjoy a cool and refreshing dip in the sparkling blue ocean; take advantage of the central location that is literally close to everything, bars, restaurants, shops, the bus stop, and especially the adventure and beauty of the sun-drenched beach!

Andrea and Nico were amazing hosts. We loved everything about Samara. The house was clean and located near everything we needed. Andrea and Nico were very helpful and informative on what to do, where to go and things to do while in Costa Rico. We look forward to our next trip to CR. Make sure to get a surfing lesson at Pato's while visiting. The instructors are great.

Ben and I stayed with Nikola and Andrea for three nights. They were wonderful, kind hosts. Living with them made us feel like locals! The house was cozy and we appreciated having full access to the kitchen and living space. The only bummer was that we had trouble with the shower head heater.

Our stay with Andrea and Nicki was wonderful! We were a very short, shady, easy walk (about 50 steps) to the beautiful Samara beach. We swam every morning. I loved the calm ocean, and my husband found the bigger body surfing waves he wanted at a few beaches a short drive north and south of Samara. Andrea and Nicki's house is very comfortable and very clean. We had no problems sharing the one bathroom as there is also a nice outside shower. There is no air conditioning, but we found the ceiling and floor fans more than adequate to keep us cool at night. The bed is firm and very comfortable and the room has plenty of closet space. I loved hearing the howler monkeys in the early mornings and watching monkeys, parrots, and birds of all kinds in the forest of tropical trees. It is a quick walk to town and many different kinds of Tico, Italian, and French restaurants. We felt very at home with Nicki and Andrea and highly recommend their sweet, homey, and comfortable house. We stayed a month and consider Andrea and Nicki family!

Andrea and Nicky were great hosts. Our flight was delayed 4 hours so we arrived in the middle of the night, and Nicky was awake to greet us cheerfully. The place is very clean and the kitchen was quite sufficient to do any kind of cooking. The place is about 50 meters from the beach, and very near (easily walkable) the action of the town, which made it extremely convenient. Kimbo is their sweet dog and he is very friendly. If you're thinking Hilton or Four Seasons accommodations, go elsewhere, but if you just want to hang at the beach and be hosted in a very congenial, unobtrusive way, I highly recommend Casa Coco. In addition, if you are planning to take a surfing lesson, Nicky is a great, patient instructor and works at Pato's Surfing School, which is the first thing you encounter upon entering the beach. The bed is quite comfortable and there is a lot of storage space in the room. If I could make one suggestion, that would be to improve the lighting in the bathroom. It's good enough to wash, etc. but difficult to shave. Beyond that, I would not hesitate to book another stay with these fine people. Also, Nicky's uncle drives a taxi and he can arrange for your transport. We had a great time. Thank you, guys. Sincerely, Hank and Emi Hirsh.

Andrea and Niki are lovely hosts. They were very welcoming and provided lots of good tips. Had a wonderful stay. Their home is nestled in the trees and is very convenient to the beach. Literally a 3 min walk. It was wonderful!

Andrea truly is the definition of a "super host!" Before we arrived, she made sure we were provided with directions, both in English and Spanish. Her place was easy to find. The casa is just a hop, skip and a jump to the beach which was perfect. Andrea is a sweetheart- full of good advice and information about the area. The room and home was very clean and comfortable. There is a fun custom guide to samara and travel books in the room and a fan. We felt very welcomed and right at home at casa coco. I loved hanging out in the hammock in the backyard and drinking coffee on the front porch. The area is quiet and you can hear the waves at night. I really enjoyed having a nice shower and kitchen. It was hard to leave! I would definitely come back to stay here again. if you're wondering if this is the right place to stay, trust me - it is! She even has a wonderful dog named kimbo who is truly a sweetheart. Very grateful to Andrea and I hope to come back to samara again. Pura vida!!

I loved staying in Andrea's house near the beach at Playa Samara. The sounds of the jungle were all around; howler monkeys, bird calls such as I had never heard, frogs; all blended together to provide an entertaining chorus. The sound of the rainfall lulled me to sleep at night. The fully stocked kitchen allowed me to fix some great home made breakfasts. I was a few steps from the beach and the warmest ocean I have ever felt. My bed was comfortable and the room had space for all my stuff. The warm water shower in the bath was welcome each morning. And Andrea was a sweet and gracious host. I will return and I highly recommend Andrea's place.

Andrea User ProfileAndrea is a superhost.

My name is Andrea and I have lived in Costa Rica since 2006. I love Samara, and am happy to call it home. I love to surf, hang with my dog, and I especially love my job- working as the Executive Director for La Asociacion CREAR. We are a free after-school program for the local youth, focused on arts, language, technology, critical thinking and girl's empowerment. I live a relaxed lifestyle- early morning surfing, or walks on the beach, long days with CREAR, and peaceful evenings at Casa Coco. My boyfriend Nicky also lives here, and he is a total pleasure to have around. He was born and raised in nearby Playa Carrillo, so he can offer plenty of local insight and knowledge. He is also a very talented surfer that is always willing to share some tips! Nicky works at a local surf school, so we can get you the best prices for surf lessons and board rentals, and put you in to contact with the best tour operators in the area. We are calm people that love the outdoors and the simple things in life. Our sweet-natured kimbo is a big black dog that is sure to steal your heart :)
