Vacation Rentals in Sámara

Just booked in Sámara

Sharing the treetops with monkeys, birds & iguanas, this light, airy, 2nd floor apartment is just 50 meters from the beach, right in the heart of Sámara. Great nature views and sounds of the ocean throughout. Fully equipped kitchen, 2 bedrooms, WiFi.
Poised on a back road that ends at the beach and is shared by the local language school and other lodging units, this unique and spacious apartment (75m2) with its vaulted ceiling is shaded by mango, papaya, plantain, and cashew tres. Our fully furnished apartment has two bedrooms, one bath, and an open-plan living room and kitchen with a tiled breakfast bar, and WiFi. Netflix works perfectly in Costa Rica, we suggest bringing your account info to be able to connect on your devices when you wish. The master bedroom has a double bed while the second has two single beds sleeping a total of four comfortably, perfect for a family, two couples or traveling friends. Both rooms have bedside tables, lamps, closets and ceiling fans. Our unique furniture is handmade by local woodworkers using recycled tropical woods and driftwood. The kitchen has a convection toaster-oven, 4-burner stovetop, blender, electric water heater and Costa Rican coffee-drip, and seating for 5 at the breakfast bar. In the interest of full disclosure, as with any rentals in the heart of Sámara, the bar-restaurants can be noisy at night, and there is a bar-restaurant diagonally behind us that has live music on Wednesdays. The early morning roosters, dogs and howler monkeys present all over Sámara can also be a noise factor! To that end we have two loud floor fans that work great for drowning out outside noise, and recommend bringing earplugs. If you are sensitve to noise or a light sleeper, we recommend looking for a rental further out of town. We do not have AC at the apartment, so check average temperatures for your dates if you are not used to the tropical heat.
I love that we are so close to the beach, you don't even need to put your flipflops on, and that there is so much nature and wildlife around us. Also, being right near the language school is a plus, as guests can use the facilities and take part in activities like yoga and dance, and feel like they are part of a community if they want to. Also, absolutely everything is within very short walking distance (no more than a few blocks)!
  • We really enjoyed staying at Laura's. It was the perfect place to start our trip in Costa Rica as a family. We found it comfortable and easy being so close to the beach as it was very hot!

  • The apartment is roomy and comfortable. It is close to the beach. We loved the beach. We cooked all our meals in the apartment. Though the kitchen dishes and equipment have seen a lot use, we had just about everything we needed. The apartment gets dusty because most of it is screened and without glass or shutters. It also means that you have free concerts when the surrounding bars get going. For the most part we enjoyed the music. The fans were of help in drownings out the music later in the evening. The apartment was hot in the afternoons but quite comfortable during the night and in the morning. Unfortunately we did not get to meet Laura as she was away. She was very responsive to any requests we made through messaging. She had people come promptly for a maintenance issue.

    Kathy2016-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Laura's home is beautiful. High ceilings, tree top views and sounds of crashing waves in the distance. The kitchen is well equipped and the outside shower in the garden is heavenly. The party people are out in the neighborhood on Saturday night and you will hear them but we got used to them and none of had trouble sleeping after the first night. Pura Vida!

  • This was our first experience with airbnb and also our first trip to Costa Rica and will definitely not be our last of either. Laura provided excellent communication from my first contact - often responding in just seconds. That was so easy and refreshing to have a host to interact with and help answer questions. We had some delay with our flight and ended up arriving very late at night, but Laura was available when we called and Tyrone even carried our bags for us in what was practically the middle of the night. Laura and her family have a wonderful place and the apartment was just as described. Light and airy and comfortable and suited our needs just fine. I am glad that we went this route instead of a hotel or resort, it was a very comfortable place for our family. The location was just as described - just a very short walk down to the beach and also to town. We loved our experience here and would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a comfortable and pleasant stay in Samara.

    Angie2014-06-16T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay! Great host, great location, great space! We had an outstanding vacation. Laura was a very helpful in giving us ideas in planning our activities; my daughter even took a class at the Intercultura School. The apartment is centrally located, just a quick walk to the beach, grocery, restaurants and shopping. Samara is great beach town, plenty to do, but very relaxed. We will definitely be back!

  • Family of four in two bedrooms and one bath near the beach... is very nice!

    Don2017-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time at Laura's! Really great accommodations and a wonderful family. Laura and Tyrone can give you information about anything in Samara, and they are very approachable. My son even went to daycare with their adorable daughter for a few days, and spent a lot of time playing with her. The place is well laid out, clean, and has everything you could need. It’s separated enough from their home as well, so you’ll have the privacy you want. Samara is a very cool little town, and the beach is great. Lots of iguanas on/around the property! Our top suggestion for anyone visiting is to wait until low tide and go to the far west side of the beach and explore the tidepools.. you can spend hours poking about. One note for accessibility- there is a narrow spiral staircase to get up to the unit which was no problem for us, but if anyone has a hard time with stairs, it may not be ideal.

    Rachel2014-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • Laura and Ty were most accommodating. My husband and I chose to stay at Laura's apartment due to the incredible reviews. We have definitely had the same experience. Anything we needed, they were just a holler away downstairs. Laura had mentioned we had slept on a new mattress. It was very comfortable. There was always plenty of hot water, even for my husband who loves to take long showers. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Playa Samara is so beautiful and when we come back we will definitely plan on staying at Laura's place again. Laura and Ty, thank y'all so much for your hospitality. See y'all when we go back!

    Enjoy lovely views from this quaint, artsy second story bungalow. Bamboo wall mural brings feelings of the outdoors in while floor mural takes you into the Wild. Small front patio gives views of natural horse pasture backed by palm lined beach. Interior includes small equipped kitchen, private bathroom, small bedroom with comfortable queen bed and a living room with desk and a sofa area doubling as 2 twin beds. Shared garden area with hammocks below bring you into the Pura Vida Vibe... RELAX.
    Casa Heart Rock is well located just outside of town center and a short bike ride or walk to all the action and Beautiful beaches. The property consists of 4 small apartments which share the garden space... Artés Place apartment is the second story of a 2 story building so it is important to note that while you will have your private indoor space you will most likely be interacting with the other neighbors/ guests ... so let's all be friends :)
    Casa Heart Rock is located in a very nice and unique part of Samara... which is also a very nice and unique town! You are located just outside of town center but far enough away to escape crowds/ noise / traffic... all of that. You will be surrounded by sweet Costa Rican abodes and wild horses walking the streets. Evening time brings the sounds of crickets and howler monkeys and children laughing and playing freely. You may also be neighboring with students and other travelers doing the local homestay experience in another apartment on the same lot or next door. There are 3 markets (Iguana Verde and Delfin Market and a new market just across the street!) and a bakery just a few blocks away as well as a couple of hotel restaurants within walking distance... and last but not least when the tide is high you can enjoy being rocked to sleep by the sound of ocean waves in the distance.

    Jéssica2017-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect little home. I had been staying in hostels for the previous few weeks and it was great to have my own space. I would stay there again

    Ben2017-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • This place was great! Nice to have our own place to crash at night. No air conditioning but the fans kept us cool. Each day woke up at 5 am due to the very loud birds, but nature is neat.

    Epeh2017-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great fun , Great beaches

    Bruce2017-10-23T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay here and really regretted that we only booked one night! The bungalows are very nice and clean. They are perfect if you want to stay for an extended stay. You are right in the middle of town so you are close to everything. There was some music at night, but only until 10pm or so. I think you would hear it everywhere in the middle of town. In the morning, the birds made sure that we got to the beach early ;) The owners run the Beach bar "Lo que hay" where we had great food and cocktails in the evening. Philippe was a great host who was very accommodating and Friendly. I highly recommend staying here!

    Susanne 2017-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great place to stay, and a great deal! Unfortunately, it was very rainy when I visited Samara; however, having our own little "house" to return to was perfect. It was clean, close to everything, and super cute! The host was very responsive to emails/calls and welcomed us kindly. I highly recommend this place!

  • As soon as we arrived in Samara, we knew it was where we were meant to be. The location of this apartment couldn't be more ideal- just a 30 second walk to the beach. The apartment is located in a gated paradise, with lanterns and hammocks lining the front porch. Everything that we needed and more could be found within the space, and we truly felt as though we had landed in paradise. Sandra was a perfect hostess and we couldn't have been more excited to find this AirBNB. Make sure you check out LuvBurger while you are in town as well.. Let's just say we became regulars over the duration of our stay. The only negative part about it is that you'll seriously consider quitting your job and staying forever. Thank you so much Sandra

    Laura2017-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Sandra's place is a little piece of paradise on Earth. Be sure to go to the various other beaches around, specially Guiones. Excellent communication, very satisfied with our second stay. Planning the third already!

    Eduardo2017-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely apartment and probably best location in Samara!

    Marvin2017-04-08T00:00:00Z

    Mike2017-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Santosha was lovely! Great location, close to the beach. Communication with Sandra was excellent! Luvburger was so good :) It is a small place but when you're out all day, it is fine! Thanks for a lovely stay & great hospitality.

    Emma2017-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Because of a technical issue we didn't the house listed. But at the last moment, Sandra was nice enough to arrange for us to stay in her own house. Needless to say everything was perfect. Aside from that, Sandra was very helpfull and we saw her a few times in town where she always made sure everything was OK. Great host. Great energy. Great host.

    Luc2015-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place to stay a d Sandra is a very nice abd helpful host. Little houses are 20m from beach which is incredible. 2 out of the 4 nights we stayed at Samara there was a concert at flying taco restaurant (30m from flat) until at least midnight so if you like music it is perfect! But a bit noisy. The rest of the time it is quiet, safe, fully equipped and clean. Then we advise you to taste Sandra's restaurant "Luv Burger" to eat something different and healthier than local food . Last but not least in those little houses you have direct access to: iguanas & squirrels that are in the trees. This is fantastic!!

    Alcidiane2016-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Sandra is awesome! She is always around and able to help with any questions and advice on where to go and things to do. The apartments are beautiful and very accommodating. The beach so close you can hear the waves!

  • Carlos and his wife were great hosts. They have given us sightseeing tips, offered to show around beaches and were very responsive. Their place is very nice and as described. All amenities are there for a comfortable stay. Thank you for having us!

    Nina2017-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • Carlos & Beatriz were excellent hosts with an awesome piece of paradise. They are living the Costa Rican dream and you'd be lucky to have the opportunity to stay in their guest home. Everything was perfect! Pura Vida!

    AJ2017-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • Carlos and Beatriz were great hosts. The property is located in a beautiful spot, short and easy walk to the beach. The facility was clean , peaceful and relaxing. They were very nice with us and they let us use their bikes and snorkels. Puerto Carrillo has an amazing beach and vibe. We are glad that we stoped here for a couple days. Samara, which is not far, is another beautiful beach and town to visit. We highly recommend this place!! Pura Vida

    Stefan2017-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I stayed at Amor de Ancla for four weeks and we couldn't be happier with our stay! The location was ideal, close to the beach yet still private and quiet. The property is located a short walk (5-10 mins) to playa Carrillo as well as the town's center. Samara, which has more options for restaurants and shops, is a quick drive away. The property is beautiful, quiet, private, safe, and very clean. The gardens were a bonus, drawing lots of butterflies and some hummingbirds every morning. The bunglaw itself was cute and had everything we needed (including hot water which is not common in Costa Rican houses). We loved to sit out on the deck in the mornings, listening to the occasional passing howler monkey, or lay in the hammock in the patio below during the afternoon heat. The only small issue we had was that the wifi connection was sometimes slow, but that gave us more of a reason to unplug and enjoy the beauty of Carrillo and all it had to offer. Carlos and Beatriz were very friendly and helpful to us during our stay. They made sure we had everything we needed and checked in now and again to make sure we were enjoying our trip. They were a great source of information for local activities, restaurantes, tours, etc and were very happy to answer all of our questions. I highly recommend Amor de Ancla!

    Melissa2017-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed 1 week at Carlos and Beatrice place and wished we could have stayed longer. Our private house was great with all you need for a relaxing time. The pool area and the very well kept garden were fantastic and we could use different herbs and fruits for cooking. There is also a fantastic view over the very closed by jungle, where - with the help of their nice gardener - we were able to see howler monkeys pass by during breakfast. Best of all were the hosts themselves which were really helpful in every way and know everything about the surroundings. For instance they were able to tell us which evening would be best to see turtles. It is very convenient that they live so close by and we will miss their hospitality! It is possible to reach Ostional turtle beach from here on a rocky road which we did, highly recommended. The Carrillo beach with a great sunset almost every evening is just a 7 minute walk away. There are also some nice restaurants in the area and Samara is a 15 minute drive away, where we had good food experiences as well. We highly recommend this place and hope to come back soon!

    Calle2017-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • OMG! Out of our 16 day travel through Costa Rica we loved these hosts and this area more than anything! Carlos & Beatrice may be the kindest people in the world, so sweet & welcoming. And their place .... heaven on earth! We can’t say enough about these two & their beautiful home! Extraordinary!

    Jennie2017-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I stayed on Carlos residency for about a week and we loved. The place is beautiful, and Carlos and his Girlfriend are just amazing hosts.

    Pablo2017-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed 4 nights at Beatriz’s and Carlos place. It’s surrounded by nature, a really calm and relaxing place with a nice house with everything you need. Especially the well kept garden is amazing with all it herbs (we were allowed to use them) and flowers. Everything was clean and cosy. When you want to, you are in a few minutes at the really nice wild beach of Carillo. Beatriz and Carlos are the kindest hosts you could wish. Relaxing, communicative if you want to, helpful and careful. We would miss both this place and them. So far it was our best stay and experience at this place during our trip through Costa Rica. We could only recommend it. Thanks you two for everything and we hope to come back again. :)

The hosts are super nice and knowledgeable about things to do and they provide coupons to their beach restaraunt which quickly became our favorite place in town. The oasis is nice, secluded, and safe, but also right in the heart of everything just a two minute walk to the beach. Overall, loved my stay there, would definitely recommend!

  • Sandra was warm and welcoming, we went to the unit that is situated in an enclosed courtyard with high walls, where the other 2 units are. Nice to have private parking for my rental car. Only steps to the beach. Everything i could want was in the unit, fresh towels, micro, fridge, hot water in the shower, stationary fan. Wonderful front patio with white floating fabric screens. It was a holiday weekend, so there was some music noise nearby. Daily hi temp around 95 - 97' F [36' C] was just too hot for me.

  • The loft we stayed in was fairly comfortable. Upon arrival we discovered our fan was broken, we didn't have a key for off-street parking and we didn't have a lighter for the stove to cook. It was a rocky start, but our host was accommodating and the location was great. We were hoping for a more comfortable stay, but you get what you pay for. Good price for what you get.

  • Host met us at LuvBurger, which is awesome by the way. Then walked us over to the place (short walk). Its about 2 minutes walk to the beach, which you can see from the gate. The place is much nicer than the pics with a nice little patio. The mosquitoes are there, but mostly at dusk. We bought a lavender coil, which seemed to help. We loved the place and the location was perfect. We rode horses on the beach and surfed on the easy waves. El Lagarto was excellent restaurant near by. Overall great place. Thank you, Sandra.

  • Casa Santosha is as described, small and cozy with a great patio/outdoor area. Its in an excellent location with perfect beach access and near all the cool eateries and the town but tucked back behind a fence/gate so private. There's parking for your car back there as well which is great. Some warnings- the sea breezes don't reach back to the apartment so the mosquitoes are something fierce! Also no AC so open windows and fans means nighttime critters come to say hello. The very excellent and most delicious taco place around the corner has an open mic night whose noise will reach you as if in the backyard. It's only one night a week so not too disturbing. Also the shower leaves something to be desired by the way of hot water and water pressure. The wifi was intermittent, showing signal but not working. Luckily, every restaurant and shop has free wifi available so it wasn't hard to find a place to log in. Despite these minor inconveniences, we enjoyed our stay at Casa Santosha and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a private-hostel- type experience.

    What's the catch? Why such a great deal? No catch. It's just that this room and a few others have not been listed on Airbnb yet. So we want to build up a base of reservations and reviews. Your'e the lucky person that gets to take advantage of this crazy value. No catch? You sure? Yes, absolutely. We're not new to this as you can see by our super host status. Plus we've been operating outside of Airbnb for over 10 years You can see a few of the many reviews from happy guests in our pics.
    This room includes a comfortable double bed handmade from local hardwoods. A private bathroom with a real hot water shower (not an electrically heated suicide shower). There is also a wardrobe with plenty of hangers and an easy-to-use electronic safe. The room is not just cozy. It's downright spacious. Plus, so much common space. Most hotels here build rooms on 80%+ of their property. Not us. We're the opposite. The majority of our property is garden, pool and common areas for you to hang out and meet other guests. Try to find another place with this much space, a pool, garden and helpful owners. I dare you. Who is this not for? People that have to have air conditioning. We do not have that. And we're happy with it the way it is. Some people absolutely need a/c, and in that case we're more than happy to recommend someplace else for you. People that are afraid of bugs. We're on the edge of the forrest. It's why we still have howler monkeys visiting, armadillos living next door, tropical birds visiting and plenty of other animal life. It also means that there are bugs flying through. This is the tropics, after all. If you're bug-phobic try a place without a garden. People that need a TV. I don't think this one requires much explanation. We have books, cards and some board games available. Plus good Wi-Fi if you have a Netflix account.
    You will be within 300 meters (3 blocks for my gringo friends) of the beach. Not much in town is farther than that. You can certainly walk farther to find a few select restaurants, but there is more than enough within a 3-5 block range of the hotel. Samara has great restaurants (Costa Rican food, pizza, sushi, vegan, grill, seafood, etc.). There are also supermarkets, bakeries, fruit stands and butchers within a 3 block radius. There is a lot to do while you're here. Some of our favorite activities include: • Samara Trails nature hike • Surf lessons • Dolphin watching tours • Izquierda Beach • Carrillo Beach • Wingnuts canopy tour • Kayaking (ocean or river) Or our favorite thing, relaxing by the pool or on the beach. Samara is unique in that it offers plenty to do (day or night) if you're active but it can also pass as a sleepy fishing village if your goal is to chill out.
  • We made a mistake in our booking and arrived a day early for our reservation. Thankfully they had enough room and they accommodated us gladly without hesitation. We stayed at Dos Aguas for 7 nights and we had a great time. Everything in Samara is easily accessible from the bnb yet you don't pay the higher price of being in the center of town or on the beach. Even though Brandon was not there during our stay he was quick to respond to our messages as we got settled in. The host who was working (Javi) was always available to answer questions and make recommendations about things to do in the area. At one point we locked ourselves out of our room and even locked ourselves out of the safe in the room and she graciously assisted us. We loved that there is a kitchen and fridge space available to store food for times we didn't want to eat out. Would definitely stay again!

    Mason2017-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a gem if you want a home from home - a quiet place on the edge of town (but only 5 minutes walk to the beach) with simple, tastefully decorated and comfortable rooms, lovely communal spaces to sit/lie in on the terrace, dining area and around the pool, a well-equipped kitchen so you don't have to go out if you don't want to. The staff are friendly and happy to help out or lend you things like beach towels, chairs, boogie boards and so on to make your stay better. We loved it! I would most definitely come back again.

    Kate2017-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • That place was perfect. Nice surrounding. Very peaceful and close to everything. The beach is a 5 minute walk away. I can highly recommend.

  • What an amazing small gem in Samara! A cozy little hotel with spacious room and amazing hospitality! The room was very clean, and the cleaning lady cleans every 2 days! The kitchen is nice and we used it to cook and prepare our meals, the flora is beautiful and the common space is very comfortable to work from. Location is great, just couple of minutes walking to the beach! Will definitely return when will come again to Samara. Thanks Brandon and Layla for everything!

    Linoy 2017-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • Brandon is an awesome host! He and his wife are very helpful. The property and common grounds are very beautiful and the pool is gorgeous and pristine. They have two cats that are very sweet and hammocks abound for lazily reading a book borrowed from the lending library. The outdoor kitchen is fully stocked with all modern appliances and the overall vibe is amazingly tranquil. Overall, if you are ok with out Air Conditioning (they have lots of fans), then this is an excellent choice.

    Justin2017-07-30T00:00:00Z
  • Entre dos Aguas si a really lovely place. It is only a short walk to the beach and the supermarket. The kitchen is very well equipped, there's even a mixer! Everything was very clean and well taken care of. Samara is a pleasant little beach village, perfect for a beach vacation. Playa Carrillo is a bit longer walk but well worth it!

    Lisianne2017-08-29T00:00:00Z

    The location is perfect! The house is located in the center of Playa Samara and only 100 meters from the beach (and for the waves lovers, right next to the Pato's surf school). The common area features outdoor shower, garden, kitchen, chill area and laundry. The room is simple and comfortable and just outside it there is your private bathroom. Being in the middle of the city, restaurants and bars are just a short walk away and the area is completely safe.

    Samara is a quiet beach town with great food and the most amazing beach. If you are wanting to learn to surf this is where to do it. If you are looking for pro surfing waves you can find them just a short drive away to another beach. All of the people are very friendly and happy to point you to the best restaurants or shopping. The Natural Center you will find great organic foods for cooking at home.
  • I had an amazingly relaxing stay. The apartment was very cozy and the town was super friendly and relaxed. I definitely felt at home and very welcomed by my hosts and the entire town. Very comforting place and everyone treated me like family. I will definitely be coming back again. Matt and dawn were lovely hosts and made me feel at home the entire stay. Loved this little get away and I feel like I made new life long friends. It was amazing how friendly everyone was. Great job you guys. Much love. John

  • My boyfriend and I loved our stay at Casa Lobos. Matt and Dawn were great hosts with plenty of suggestions for restaurants and things to do around Samara and near by towns. The apartment was clean and has a lot of space and everything you need if you want to cook there. The wifi worked great and the AC was nice to have after a long day in the sun. We rented bikes down the street and got around really well without a car. The apartment is located on the main drag of Samara going straight to the beach. This is by far my favorite town in Costa Rica that I've been to so far. It's not too touristy but you can get by without speaking a lot of Spanish, it's really safe and everyone is so friendly. We can't wait to come back and stay here again!

    Chelsea2017-07-11T00:00:00Z
  • Dawn and Matt were quick to respond to any requests. Their property manager, Mike Fanelli, was also hospitable, friendly and very great at accommodating any requests. The condo is spacious and has everything you would need for a stay at a coastal town. The location was perfect. I would recommend this spot to anyone who would like to visit Sámara! :)

    Rana2017-02-15T00:00:00Z

    Steve2017-03-22T00:00:00Z

    Tijn2017-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for lifetime memories then look no further. You could not ask for a more perfect place and gracious host then what Matt and Dawn have to offer. We were blown away by how much room we had and the views of Samara were breathtaking. Right on the main street, gave us access to all the shopping, dinning, nightlife, and amazing beaches. The food in Samara was to die for as was the surfing. This is a must see place!

    Joshua2017-07-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at Casa Lobo. The apartment it's spacious, clean, totally equipped and has a great location if you like to be close to everything (restaurants, nightlife, shops). I would definitely stay there again.

    Alejandro2017-04-13T00:00:00Z
  • Matt and Dawn are great people to work with. They were so helpful with all my questions about the area. Dawn gave some great suggestion on restaurants and tips to make things go easier, since I do not speak Spanish. I really enjoyed my stay at Casa Lobo. The property manager, Mike, had everything ready for check in, even though my flight landed late. The property was exactly how it was presented but more spacious than it appeared in photos. The second floor gives you privacy along with well lit rooms. Standing on the balcony gave me a real view of Samara, the people and what makes this place such a gem. The covered balcony aloud me to have my meals outside, even when it was raining. The air conditioning in every room was a blessing after a long hot day at the beach. There was a great little bakery and coffee shop right next door (if you get there early the breakfast croissants and apple cinnamon pastries are piping hot.) Just across the street was a local fresh produce venter, which was so convenient. The beach, restaurants, bars, and shopping all walking distance. Any excursion you might be interested taking, Out Back ATV Rentals and Tours are right across the street. Another plus for me was, I found an English speaking Christian Church close by. I highly recommend Casa Lobo, I will be returning with friends next time.

    Villa Eden Blu , one of 4 modern houses in the gated community Eden Blu Paradisio, was designed with comfort, elegance, and entertaining in mind. For a family looking for modern accommodation in Samara .Walking distance from the center and the beach.
    The location is outstanding: 150 feet above sea level and an easy 3-minute walk to beautiful Playa Samara, with ocean view and the beautiful lap pool.
    Situated on the only small hillside within the center of Samara Beach, Villa Eden is the perfect spot to enjoy panoramic ocean views.
  • This brand new villa is in a great location in Samara—quiet and private, on a hill overlooking the bay, but a short walk from the bustling town, restaurants, shopping and the beach. It is clean and comfortable, and the patio and pool (also overlooking the bay) was a great place to enjoy breakfast in the morning, a late afternoon swim, or a cocktail. For those of us who may need to check into work occasionally, free wifi was there. The owner was accessible and responsive when we had questions. If you are up for it, wonderful ceviche and empanadas can be purchased from strolling vendors on the beach. Waterfront restaurants are great for a drink, snack or meal, but locals frequent spots like La Perla, La Marisqueria and La Esmeralda (takeout). Arrangements for excursions like kayaking across the bay for snorkeling are easily made near the beach.

    Kelly2016-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • What a beautiful, modern house with everything you would need for a fantastic stay in Playa Samara. We will definitely be back. That pool was incredible! Highly recommended!

    Jordann and Brian2017-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Very accommodating and everything clean. Spectacular view of ocean and pool was great. Gardner was very helpful. Highly recommend.

    Borja2017-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • This was an absolutely perfect home for my family. The pool was the highlight of the while trip, and my son played all day and night while we enjoyed the shade of the back patio and spacious home and grounds. The location feels quiet and private, while still so close to all that Samara has to offer!

    Angie2017-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • The oceanview from the house is amazing. You can walk to the beach and the town in just a few minuts. Lots of hummingbirds in the trees and a motmot that came in the afternoon.

    Nadja2016-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Barbara's place was beautiful. It is a short hike up a hill to get to the villas, but it is worth it! The view of the ocean is amazing and the pool is perfect... perfect size and wonderful after a day of hiking or horseback riding. The home is very clean and the gardener is helpful. Even when I accidentally locked the safe and couldn't get it open he took care of it right away. It's a very short walk to the main strip and the beach. There are a bank and grocery store right on the strip. We also enjoyed visits of howler monkeys and iguanas. Would be happy to stay there again! Thanks, Barbara!

    vasantha2016-04-01T00:00:00Z
  • Our apartment was amazing. We felt right at home and Arno, Felix and their crew really went above and beyond to make our stay comfortable. We will definitely be back. The good: The view. Game changer. Exceptionally clean, feel safe, away from hustle bustle (not much anyways), and we saw monkeys and wildlife everyday. The pool really was amazing, very relaxing indeed. Modern amenities. FYI: Internet is not reliable, but that may be more reflective of Samara as opposed to the villas themselves. There may be a little too much wildlife for night swimming :) In summary: our villa was pure magic. Arno, property manager, was available within minutes of a text message response, went ABOVE and BEYOND to make us feel comfortable (Brought us extra pillows ect) and give us pointers for food, drink and other life essentials. Don't hesitate. Book this place if its available.

    Fadel2017-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • This is a really beautiful house and we had a great five days holiday there. The house is spotless and has everything you need to enjoy your break including cooking utensils, wifi, tv and towels. And air conditioning - which was vital! A gardener comes every day and can help if there are any problems. The pool is the best bit - it is even bigger than it looks in the photos and perfect relief from the heat. We even saw a family of monkeys one evening and there are beautiful birds flying overhead every day. The town and beach are very nearby so this is the perfect spot for exploring the area. If you are less able to walk you will need to plan to drive every day as there is a steep hill/drive way up to the house (so steep that 4WD is recommended). I would thoroughly recommend this property, it is brilliant value for money.

    Me gusta este barrio porque es nuevo y los vecinos son personas que se retiraron y vinieron a costa rica a vivir y encontraron este lugar para descansar. Es verde y poco poblado pero muy multicultural.
  • The family is very kind. Had some great tips for fishing and to go to buena vista beach instead of Samara beach. Beautiful sunset and not crowded. You hear a noise from the television in their living room and from upstairs because of the wood like described in the information on Airbnb. Would not recommend it if you sleep light.

  • Marisol, this account holder's mother, is a sweetheart and a great host. She welcomed me into her home with a smile and greeted me every time she saw me coming in and out of the property. I wish I had made more of an effort, despite the language barrier, to get to know her and learn about the life of a Tico in Costa Rica. Future guests should be careful to either take a taxi ($2 USD) or walk home with a companion at night as the area near the bridge seems to be where robberies taken place in the past. Also, the property doesn't have hot water, so be grateful for the refreshing feeling after a cold shower. The private room has a log cabin look-and-feel as well as smell, so be sure to open your windows in the morning and enjoy the sound of birds as well as letting fresh air into the room. Lastly, there is a soda (local restaurant, not touristy) right around the corner from this property that you ought to check out as the food is delicious.

    Hilena2017-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Marisol (Bryan's mother) only speaks Spanish but she's very kind and warmhearted. I was surprised that the host wasn't there but nonetheless, I enjoyed my stay in this Hostel and would recommend to anyone looking for a casual and minimalist place instead of paying for a 5* hotel. You might find bugs in your bedroom (mostly ants) and it can get noisy easily because even walking makes the wooden floor crack and it's poorly soundproofed (so bring earplugs and you'll be fine). Great experience overall and will bring you closer to local people!

    Benjamin2017-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • Marisol was a lovely host, very welcoming to my partner and I. Exchanging information and emails with Bryan was quick and efficient. It is very much a family home turned into basic hostel accomodation. The room was basic and attached to the kitchen which, as part of the main family home may be noisy. The bathroom has no ceiling so privacy is limited. Great opportunity to stay with a local family who is extremely welcoming and friendly. Thx:)

    stefanie2017-02-11T00:00:00Z
  • Marisol was warm and welcoming. Her organic garden was so nice. This is basic accommodation in a family home. If you're not overly sociable, this may not be for you. My daughter and I loved feeling almost part of the family.

    Bobbi2017-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • Bon accueil de Marisol qui est très sympa. Pas de moustiquaire à la chambre ce qui est dommage, car elle-même nous a prévenu qu'il y avait des moustiques. Le lit est confortable et la cuisine est top pour se préparer à manger :) nous avons été choqués du prix demandé pour la lessive: elle nous a d'abord dit 4 USD par kilo, puis dès la lessive terminée, 8USD. Il y a peut être eu un malentendu, mais ça reste très cher, surtout qu'on a dû aller reprendre notre lessive nous-mêmes. Merci tout de même à Marisol pour ces deux nuits très agréables :)

    Chill vibe, great yard. New reno, private balcony, entrance & bath. Great wifi. AC, full fridge, stove top, microwave. Max 5 min. to beach, bank, groceries, bars & restaurants. Pets negotiable. Sometimes see monkeys from bed.
    The apartment is very nice and peaceful! It also backs up to the jungle :) You can often see howler monkeys or or hummingbirds or a giant iguana snacking on melon in the front yard! Bathroom, yard, patio, kitchen, laundry (for guests staying 3 nights or more), great wifi. I live on the same property and am friendly and outgoing and happy to answer questions or provide tips. It's peaceful, very close to great restaurants, the bank and the big grocery store, a very short walk to the beach (3 min). There is a major bus stop across the street, right in front of the house as well as another major bus line about a block away. And National Car Rental is a couple of doors down. It's also right across the street from a delicious local restaurant :)
    On a paved road. Steps to everything; beach, bank, bars, groceries, clinic, language school. Close enough to hear the surf. Unit sits back on large planted lot that abuts jungle, so plenty of exposure to monkeys, iguanas, birds.
  • Kimberly was a great host and made us feel very welcome. The room is completely private and very clean. The location was perfect, right in town and a short walk to the beach.

    Nick2017-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • Kimberly is a fantastic host (and fascinating person to get to know) and has all the insider info you need to make your Sámara stay a raging success. The place is one of the best laid out studios ever- tons of light, great porch overlooking an actual shaded garden to hang out in (because unlike some bad folks she didn't chop down all the trees!) , recycling, laundry, strong wi-fi, not one but two super friendly dogs, monkeys playing in the back overhead, hummingbirds aplenty, outdoor shower to rinse off aprés beach, 4 min. walk to the beach and close to everything but with privacy since it is set back from the road. We felt at home immediately. Not a cookie cutter faux-tel concrete gated rental--this is the laid back self-catering beach town pad you are looking for. Just add Cacique (local hooch), ice, be chill, and get your Gold Dust Woman on! Perfect for couples.

    jacquetta2016-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Kimberly is the ultimate host! Her place is honestly even better than advertised - the pictures really don't do it justice. It's very spacious and right next to the jungle and the beach. We saw hummingbirds just off of the balcony, and just missed a troupe of monkeys in her backyard. The home is a 2 minute walk from the beach, and less than 10 minutes from every major place in the town. Kimberly made us feel at home and at ease with her generosity and her funny stories! I can't recommend this place, or this town, enough. I will surely be back.

    Charles2015-12-19T00:00:00Z
  • Kimberly’s place is so cool! Really stylish and beautiful. It’s 2 minutes to Playa Samara and all of the wonderful shops and cafes. It was the perfect basecamp for two days at the beach!

    Bridget2017-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Kim's apartment is a wonderful, quiet place in a central location in Samara and I can highly recommend it for a single person or a couple. It took me only three minutes to get to the beach and the Spanish school and there are lots of restaurants within walking distance (1 to 15 minutes). When I arrived at her place, I felt like being welcomed by a dear friend. And also during the two weeks I spent in Samara, Kim was always eager to make my stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible. Thank you so much, Kim, I hope I can visit you again someday!

    Stefanie2017-04-08T00:00:00Z

    Playa Carrillo is one of the 5 most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica and probably one of the 12 most beautiful beaches in the world. Its white sand and its extensive beach covered with palm trees and freshwater marshes make it a true paradise. Casa Guarumo is modern and contemporary. Each of the 5 rooms has air conditioning, bathroom and private balcony. The gourmet kitchen is equipped for the most demanding chef.
    The house is located in the center of Carrillo, very close to everything. There are small supermarkets and restaurants within walking distance of the house.
    Carrillo is a very safe area. It has a constant municipal surveillance and its beach is flagged blue for being kept free of contamination. It is a quiet place and ideal for rest. Playa Samara is 6 kilometers away with a lot of restaurants, bars and activities for lovers of social and night life.
  • We stayed at Sergio's place with a large family group and I cannot say enough, especially after staying in several other places in Costa Rica! The house was amazing, stylish and very clean! And smelled good too! The pool and large open glass doors to the pool area were fabulous! The bedrooms were large, clean and very nice linens, pillows and air condition! The kitchen was so nice to work in with everything you would need to cook for a large group! All the dishes, appliances, cookware, bowls, Tupperware, plastic drink glasses for poolside, knives, etc! He thought of every convenience needed, yoga mats, pool and beach towels, chairs, coolers, beach bags in each room and so on! Sergio was amazing with very prompt responses at any given time and very helpful with things around the area needed. Don't miss poolside massages from Marco! He is amazing! Playa Carrillo is a beautiful, clean, quiet beach area just right down the street! We all had a wonderful time and this place is over the top for Costa Rica and would highly recommend! We hope to come back someday.

  • We simply loved this place. The house is well maintained and very well located with a small supermarket just across the street. Sergio was prompt to answer our requests when we texted him. The beach and look-out point near by are just fantastic. Children and adults enjoyed the pool. Great well-equipped kitchen too!

    Anabelle2017-03-30T00:00:00Z
  • We truly enjoyed our stay, the house was lovely and the host was exceptional. I would recommend this property to anyone traveling to Puerto Carrillo or Samara you won't be disappointed.

    Tiffony2017-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing property! The pictures don’t do it justice! Sergio and his associates were very cordial and helpful. The pool and house was up-kept and spacious. The bus stop is just up the street. And a small store is within walking distance. I highly recommend this AirBnB and to check out Francisco Tours for a great time! His family ran business treated us like family and showed us a great time! You can find him at Delfín Restaurant right down the road from the house. I highly recommend his fishing trips and turtle tour! This was a trip of a life time, ¡Pura Vida!

  • I cannot praise Sergio enough, his service and attention to detail are faultless; right from the start of the booking process to check-out you won't be in better hands. As for the property, it is stunning, it is fully equipped with everything you need, right down to the most luxurious bed linen, the pillows are the best we have ever had in a rental property and we will be looking to buy some when we get home, they were that good. The household staff were amazing, they were very accommodating and Marco the Masseuse was right up there with some of the best massages I have ever had, we chose to have ours outside on the deck above the swimming pool: if you stay here, you must book him, he is fabulous! As for the location of the house, it is a lovely 10 minute (max) to an absolutely stunning beach, on the way back from watching the sunsets, there are a few bars and restaurants to choose from, we couldn't decide which was our favourite! Beautiful property, amazing location and premium service, what more could you want - Pura Vida

    Siobhan2017-04-11T00:00:00Z
  • Sergio's Casa is amazing!! The pool and home are exactly what the photos show. Xenia the house keeper is an absolute doll. The beach is super close. If you want to blow away your group of friends/family, book this Airbnb!!

    Lovely bungalow with queenbed, kitchen, bathroom, terrace, private pool, garden, parking lot, wifi. Quiet environment with local wildlife, plants and trees. Three wonderful beaches in walking distance. Sámara center is a five minutes bikeride away.
    The bungalow is cosy and quiet. The terrace and the garden with own pool, hammock and deckchairs invite you to relax and enjoy. Fully equipped kitchen with gasstove, oven, microwave and coffeemachine. Own washing machine and internet access complete the feel-good program.
    Cantarrana is a barrio of Sámara with wonderful beaches in walking distance. Playa Buena Vista 5 minutes, Playa Izquierda 10 minutes, Playa Cangrejal 15 min., Playa Sámara 25 minutes.
  • We LOVED our stay here. We stayed three nights and wished we could have stayed longer. The bungalow itself is perfect- very well equipped and clean. The pool and hammock you could easily stay in for the whole day. We saw tons of wildlife as well- howler monkeys right beside the bungalow! Momo and Thomas were very nice and helpful and picked us up when we got to Samara and drove us to our drop off spot when we left. The worst part about our stay is when we had to leave!

    Emily2015-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • This is such a great find- tucked away in a quiet corner with a beautiful garden /pool and all you need to chill out for a few days while exploring the area... ideally with your own transport. we loved the hidden beach - a 30 minute walk away to an idyllic secluded spot that we had to ourselves

    Annie and Peter2017-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had such a great time in Samara. The cabin was clean, very nice, such a great location. The cabin was far away enough from town to escape the hustle and bustle of the town but close enough to get to with a quick and enjoyable 10 minute bike ride. There is a beautiful and very wild deserted beach 5 minutes walk from the cabin where coconuts were in abundance. Tomas and momo were excelent hosts, very kind and so helpful. Our only complaint were some noisy neighbour's and not as much privacy as we expected. Regardless, we had a fantastic time at the cabin which really made our time in Samara so very enjoyable.

    Jack And Lacey2015-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying at Casa Yolo. The house had all the amenities we needed. We loved having the porch, pool, and hammock. The outside area is well shaded so we enjoyed spending our time out there. We also had a view of the monkey, birds, and chipmunks. We opted for an ATV which made the distance from town more manageable. We liked being a bit removed from town because it was very peaceful, quiet, and felt very safe. We did experience some of the ears from the Guanacaste tree falling on the roof at night. It was a bit frightening at first because it makes a loud knocking noice. However, once we figured out where the noise was coming from, we were at ease. The house was very clean. The yard well maintained. Momo arranged for a house cleaner to tidy up halfway through our 1 week stay. We loved it and would stay again.

    Jamie2017-04-19T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really Nice stay at the bungalow. It's a perfectly clean, cosy bungalow. I would advice it to my friends for a holiday get-way for a couple. Not if you are not a dogperson.

    Carla2016-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • The bungalow is absolutley perfect and Momo and Thomas are fantastic hosts. The private pool is essential to cool off after a long day in the sun. This was the ideal place to stay and we would love to go back. The property is a little ways from town and we loved being so close to nature, but I'd recommend either a car or the bikes that Momo and Thomas have available.

    Liam2016-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Yolo is a very cute, quiet, and clean little bungalow. It is not in the center of town but very easy to get to. I like that it was away from the town center. It is a very tipico house

    Jennifer2017-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • Place is down the road a bit from the main area of Samara, which for me was lovely. You will need at least a bike to get around, which Momo rents from the place. Road is a bit dusty during dry season, but that was my experience everywhere in the country on the Pacific coast during February. My advice is to go straight to beach, when heading towards Samara, from road as soon as it turns to asphalt, much more secluded and nicer than main Samara beach in my opinion. WiFi worked great, plus a little plunge pool. Great place to chill and relax.

    Sámara, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    Selva is a short walk from Sámara’s beach, restaurants and nightlife. You’ll love Selva because of the comfortable bed, equipped kitchen, cooling ceiling fans and great balcony. Selva and 5 other villas share a beautiful pool on the Villas Espavel property, which is nestled against the jungle and a seasonal river. The towering trees keep Villas Espavel shady when the rest of town is scorching. Selva is good for couples and individuals.
    Villa Selva is one of 6 Villas on the Villas Espavel property. All 6 Villas share the glorious pool, river access, outdoor living room and tree top yoga space. Each Villa also has its own patio or balcony. Villas Espavel is a 5 to 10-minute walk to the beach, restaurants, Intercultura language school and The Costa Rica School of Massage. Villa Selva is a 1 bed/1 bathroom second floor apartment with a well-equipped kitchen and a large outside balcony. The bedroom has an orthopedic queen mattress, comfortable pillows, reading lights, shelves, clothes hanging space and a combination safe for your valuables. The bathroom has a large shower with hot water and space for your toiletries The covered balcony is 15 feet x 8 feet (5 meters x 2.5 meters), complete with a dining table, rocking chairs, and a hammock. In the kitchen there’s a 4-burner electric stove and all the kitchen implements you’ll need to prepare beautiful meals. There are 3 powerful ceiling fans to keep you cool; one over the bed, one in the kitchen/living area and another on the balcony. We spend most of our time outside and I bet you will too. A favorite pass time is swinging in the hammock or rocking in the teak rocking chairs while looking at the green jungle beyond the railing. Villas Espavel is very secure as the property is hidden away down a long driveway. All the windows have window screens and security bars. The owners live on site and will be available to answer your questions and help you settle in. We have a washer available if you need one during your stay.
    Villas Espavel is 75 meters off the paved road with a beautiful jungle creek bordering our property. As you walk out of our driveway, turn left to reach the beach or town in 600 meters, approximately a 6 to 10-minute walk. Or turn right and walk 300 meters to a little eatery for gallo pinto and a grocery store where you can pick up your milk, eggs and beer. We have great neighbors of the human kind as well as beautiful birds, iguanas, chickens and howler monkeys serenading you in the mornings and evenings. We are away from the disco noise and dust of town in a neighborhood with horses and chickens wandering the streets. Please be aware that the dogs, chickens, monkeys and motorcycles do not always respect the quiet hours we wish they would.
  • This place is heavenly!! It is even better than the pictures. Absolutely gorgeous and so well maintained. Samara was my favorite part of our trip due mainly to staying here. The pool is gorgeous. Villa Selva was clean and so perfect. Kitchen was beyond equipped. Mercy and Canuche were fantastic hosts and very kind people. I highly recommend staying here. You won't want to leave the property!!

    Meghan2017-06-21T00:00:00Z
  • Our experience couldn't have been more perfect. Mercy and Canuche are awesome hosts. They have worked hard to create their own little slice of paradise to share with others, and it definitely shows!

    Taylor2016-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • This is a beautiful place to stay in Samara! Mercy's place is very good value - the bedroom and kitchen are a good size and our villa was perfect for a couple with lots of luggage. The balcony is a huge plus and I enjoyed reading on the hammock for hours. All the furniture and furnishings are beautifully made. It was very clean and the kitchen had everything we needed. I appreciated the curtains on the balcony and windows so we could have some privacy. The location is great, obviously not right on the beach but a very short walk into the main town. We didn't use the pool, but it looked great and I imagine it would be great for kids as there was a shallow area, the villas look into it, and Mercy's kids playing here for friends. The only reason this place didn't get 5 stars was some trouble with the Internet, but this should be a quick fix, and the neighbors dogs that barked all night during most of our stay. The bedroom window of our villa backed right onto the neighbors yard, so it might not be the same in other villas. Mercy and her husband said this only happens at certain times of the year and very rarely... So shouldn't put you off renting this place. Otherwise this was a 5 star stay for value and convenience and I would totally recommend it!!!

    Tanyella2016-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place. Everything you need is in the kitchen. The balcony is very nice and spacious. Mercy and her family are very friendly. We absolutely recommend this place.

    Melanie2016-04-11T00:00:00Z
  • Mercy and her husband were absolutely wonderful hosts. The apartment was very small but extremely cute! The patio was awesome for watching monkeys and the two fans in the bedroom were lifesavers. The location was 5 minutes from the beach and about 10 minutes from all the restaurants/shops. We really enjoyed our stay, Thank you!

    Julia2016-04-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great Location. Not far from the center, but peaceful and very beautiful. The communication was perfect and the check in and check out couldn't have been easier. Highly recommended!

    Joana2017-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • Mercy was amazing & I cannot thank her enough for taking care of transportation for my 19 year old daughter who is traveling to Samara for Massage Therapy School:-) I would recommend her to anyone traveling to Samara!

    Tania2017-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the pool, came in handy for cool down. Rooms were spacious, well equipped and well laid out. Bed was very comfortable, kitchen appliances all worked. Loved the deck for hanging out in the evening and having supper. Mercy and Canuche were excellent hosts and shared their wealth of information about Costa Rica. Enjoyed the location of Villa Espavel as it was on a stream and there were often Howler Monkeys and many kinds of bird species to view. Would stay here again if we visit Samara.

    The cabina at Bambula is an independent double room with a queen bed, ensuite bathroom, and high teak ceilings. Perfect for a couple or solo traveler, or as additional sleeping space for groups renting other units on the property. Guests love the outdoor kitchen! You will have access to all of the amenities on the property. Bambula is the perfect location, easy walking distance to everything in town but tucked away on a quiet cul-de-sac just on the edge of town center. Only 200m to the beach!
    The cabina is a nice, cozy room with a beautiful teak ceiling, plenty of space, and all of the modern amenities. The outdoor kitchen is fully equipped and well stocked. It is such a fun, unique experience being able to prepare meals among the surrounding garden and jungle. I've just recently listed this unit separately, please check my other reviews! Many of them mention the cabina by name
  • Casa Bambula is on the edge of town close to the jungle. We saw coatis, raccoons and howler monkeys. Because it is on the edge of town, it is a bit quieter than in town. The short, easy walk to the beach was always interesting because it took us down one of the main streets. We stayed in a cabina and enjoyed the outdoor kitchen. The pool was a bonus on hot sticky days.

    Deborah2017-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location for Samara beach, just far enough away to get some quiet too. 5 minute walk to everything. Dana was really helpful during this stay and our onward journey as we’d had problems with our car hire (left our driving licences at home). We got the bus in from Liberia to Nicoya then to Samara, really simple and really cheap even though our Spanish is extremely limited. Thanks Dana.

    Susannah2018-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay at Dana’s! Great location, private but within walking distance to everything you need (beach, restaurants, shops, supermarkets, etc.). She is super laid back and made us feel right at home, would love to come back!

    Andria2017-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • Its a great place, walking distance of the beach and well the rest of the town but a the same time with just the perfect distance to have a pleasant and quiet night. Clean with a very convenient shared kitchen and the pool. All in all... just an awesome place to stay and enjoy the beach.

    Gersom2017-03-12T00:00:00Z
