Sharing the treetops with monkeys, birds and iguanas, this light, airy, 2nd floor apartment is just 50 meters from the beach, on a quiet road but close to the heart of Sámara. Great nature views and sounds of the ocean throughout. Fully equipped kitchen, open plan living room with huge windows, comfy sofas, AC, balcony, yard, smart TV, WiFi, very comfortable bedrooms. Ideal for families, couples or friends looking to connect with local culture in a beautiful, private space steps from the ocean.
Poised on an unpaved road that ends at the beach and is shared by the local language school and other lodgings, this unique and spacious apartment with its vaulted ceiling is shaded by mango, papaya, and cashew tres. Our fully furnished, 2nd floor apartment has two bedrooms, one bath, and an open-plan living room and kitchen with a porcelenato-tiled breakfast bar, and a beautiful outdoor deck where you can relax in a hammock, watch the wildlife and listen to the sounds of the ocean. WiFi is included. Guests have their own entrance through a gate which leads to the spiral staircase up to the apartment. NOTE: This is a spiral staircase leading to the second floor, requiring reasonable levels of mobility: it is NOT a ground-floor apartment! The yard, BBQ, trampoline, terrace, playset, etc, is at ground level, and accesible off of the balcony down alternate stairs. The master bedroom has a king bed (can be separated into two singles), while the second has a loft-like double bed (up a ladder), and below, a single bed and a child's fold out chair-mattress, making the apartment perfect for a family or traveling friends. Both rooms have AC, bedside tables, lamps, closets and ceiling fans. Our unique furniture is handmade by local woodworkers using recycled tropical woods. The kitchen has a convection oven/toaster, stovetop, blender, hot water heater, Costa Rican coffee drip, mini-food processor, ample flatware, and comfortable seating for meals at the breakfast bar. In the interest of full disclosure, as with any rental in the heart of Sámara, the bar-restaurants can be noisy at night, as can the early morning roosters, dogs and howler monkeys. To that end we have AC and two loud floor fans that work great for drowning out outside noise.
I love that we are so close to the beach, you don't even need to put your flipflops on if you don´t mind the dirt road, and that there is so much nature and wildlife around us. Monkeys and iguanas are very common, geckos are everywhere, birds of all types, and the horses who wander free down our road. Also, being right near town and the language school is a plus, as guests can easily walk everywhere, and also use the language school facilities and take part in activities like yoga and dance, meet other travellers of all ages and feel like they are part of a community if they want to. Restaurants, bars and supermarkets are within 1-3 blocks, and it´s a very safe area even at night. One thing to expect are the iguanas that live all over Sámara and are frequent visitors to our roof, from where they can reach the fruit trees! They are harmless and beautiful to watch. Also, anything sweet should ALWAYS be in the fridge once opened, as there are small sugar ants (also harmless) that appear the instant anything tempting is left out!
  • We rented for a month (family of 4) and everything was perfect! Near the beach, restaurant, grocery store! Laura is superb will see you. I highly recommend! Thanks Laura :)

  • We enjoyed Laura's apartment very much. Lots of Costa Rican character with everything we needed for our 2 week stay. The location was perfect - a 2 minute walk into the ocean with lots of great restaurants nearby. The apartment was very clean and communication excellent. Some have commented on the noise around - its not quiet. There are bars nearby, lots of barking dogs and crowing roosters. The howler monkeys are noisy early in the morning too. If all that would bother you, I suggest a condo or a resort. In our experience, Central American neighbourhoods tend to be noisy. Being in Laura's apartment gave us more of a local experience, which we prefer. Note that the spiral staircase up to the apartment may not be good for everyone - we are in our 60s and were fine.

    Deborah2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great location!

    Stephanie2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Laura’s with our 11-ur-old daughter. The place was clean and beautifully decorated, as pictured. Bright and sunny and in the tree canopy. Location was fantastic. There were even sarongs to borrow for the beach! We were there in the “green” season so noise was not a problem except Friday night we could hear bass from a dance club (I think). I had earplugs so not a problem and it was quiet all other nights. The AC worked great at night for sleeping- in fact was so cold we used it sparingly. Everything about our stay was wonderful. Would certainly stay again and hope to return to Samara :)

    Jessie2019-11-07T00:00:00Z
  • This house was pure magic! We loved being so close to the ocean and being in such a relaxing home. We stayed with my two young boys, and Laura provided a pack n play and a guard rail for the bed, which was awesome. We didn't have a vehicle, and didn't need one at all. The location is perfect! We could walk to a store in 2-3 minutes and to the beach in 1! Also, the neighbors are all so kind and treated us like friends. We will be back!

    Amanda2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • This spot is perfect for couples or families! Literally a two minute walk to the beach and two minutes the other way to town including groceries and restaurants and shops. Our 10 month old son loved it and being so close to everything made it easy to quickly get back to the apartment if necessary. Laura & Cheryl are quick to respond and have great recommendations. Highly recommend :)

    Celeste2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Laura's place is the perfect place to stay in Samara. The place is just footsteps from the beach and was the most well equipped apartment we have stayed at in Costa Rics. They recently added a balcony which is a great spot to enjoy your morning coffee and watch all the birds and iguanas. I highly suggest this spot.

    Sarah2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location, just down the road from a beautiful beach, backed by palm trees. We saw birds, iguanas and a coati in the garden. The apartment was well equipped and had everything we needed. We would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended.

    Sámara, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    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.
  • Thanks Sergio! We were enjoying Casa Guarumo as a family, we are 16. And we were always very comfortable. The house has everything you need. It is clean and tidy. Pablo and Xinia very friendly and available for any detail. Thank you very much, we had an amazing weekend. We hope to return!

    Ivannia2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • We loved it highly recommended

    Adriana2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Guarumo is as perfect as all the pictures and better. The location is great, with 4 very good restaurants just a few minutes walk away! The grocery store across the street had everything we needed, from fresh fruit to drinks to shampoo. The pool was cleaned every day by Pablo and the patio swept. Xinia cooked us typical Costa Rican breakfast 3 mornings. She would have cooked us supper to, but we wanted to explore all the restaurants in the area. Xinia booked excursions for us and had them pick us up right at the house. We enjoyed many species of birds right on the patio and a big highlight was howler monkeys filling the tree right in front of the house and we could watch them from the patio. The kitchen was well equipped with 2 fridges, microwave and lots of room. The washer and dryer came in handy. The pool area is well setup with a bathroom and shower off the patio. Playa Samara is only 10 minutes away by car. There were many more restaurants, shopping, grocery stores etc. Playa Carrillo is only a 10 minute walk down a really big hill. Morning walks on the beach were amazing and the sunsets were breathtaking! All the bedrooms were air conditioned, so no worry about the heat for sleeping. The temperature went down slightly in the evenings, so we enjoyed the patio all day and night. Sergio was great, he helped us arrange drivers to and from the airport! He responded quickly if we had questions. If we needed anything Pablo was close by to help us. This is an amazing property, well maintained and the location is perfect! We can’t wait to start planning our next trip back to Casa Guarumo!

    Tracy2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • Gorgeous place! We had a great time and because each room has a balcony and a private bath, our families were very comfortable. It has several levels so not appropriate for people with disabilities. The beach is very close however you might want to drive as the road has a small hill. The staff was extremely helpful and nice, we hired Xinia also for cooking a few meals and she did a fantastic job!

    Monica2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • We were too happy, the place is spectacular, the attention wonderful, just a detail that the large Refri did not work to make ice, but that did not mean a big problem. I would recommend the place a thousand times.

    Gerald2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • This place is perfect for large groups. We had 12 guests and there was easily room to fit 4 more guests comfortably. I highly recommend this place. The chef prepared us delicious meals upon request and was very personable. I would give this place more than 5 stars if I could.

    Patrick2019-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent!

    Kerri2019-05-17T00:00:00Z
  • The house has a fairly good common areas, the rooms and the kitchen are perfectly equipped. Very good place to spend holidays.

    Puerto Carrillo, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    Simple. Rustic. Beachfront. If you're looking to slow down, disconnect and experience authentic Costa Rica, The Sandbox might be the place for you. This 2nd floor studio apartment is located a short 10 minute walk to Samara Center and provides expansive Pacific Ocean views. Fall asleep to the sound of the waves and wake up to the sounds of the howler monkeys.
    We are an eco-conscious, positive vibe property located on the beach! An older, wooden, rustic, old school style Tico beach house converted into 3 apartments. This unit is located upstairs facing the ocean. Because it is located on the beach, expect some sand and depending on the season, some insects. Although completely screened, there are no mosquitoes inside. We keep it laid back and simple and always do our best given the circumstances Costa Rica provides. The property has a large fenced in yard. The Ocean Side apartment has an equipped kitchenette with an electric cooktop, coffee maker, blender, toaster, queen sized bed and full bath with hot water shower and ceiling fan. Air conditioning is not included in the price but is available upon request for an extra $10/night. We do ask that you please do not run the a/c while you are not in the unit. Most nights the ocean breeze is enough to keep you comfortable. You can often see quite a bit of wildlife from the property. Howler monkeys visit frequently as well as iguanas, squirrels and many types of birds. Please keep in mind that this is a Central American beach house in the jungle in Costa Rica, not a Ritz Carlton Resort, things are rustic. Don't expect 5 star amenities. Geckos, ants (usually just passing through on a mission to somewhere) and other harmless creatures visit frequently, power and water outages can happen from time to time. It's part of the Pura Vida charm. So pull up a beach chair, leave your expectations behind and enjoy the sunset!
    Super quiet neighborhood between Samara Centro and Matapalo.
  • Very nice location w/ a wonderful sea view.

    Mark2020-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • 3rd time to stay here. Awesome as always!

    Douglas2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • This place offers a nice space at the edge of the beach. Open the windows and get the breeze and sounds of the ocean. We especially enjoyed using a powerful blender to make our own tropical smoothies. Michelle is indeed a Super Host.

    Jack2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • nice, nice stay, beach front, balcony, all you need. great place!

    Luis2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly as described, perfect location on the beach and super close to the town center.

    Adam2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing little apartment perfect for 1-2 people. The ocean right outside and the view was outstanding. Can highly recommend it!

    Pernilla2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful space steps from the beach. Really enjoyed waking up and falling asleep to the sounds of the crashing waves. Would never want to stay anywhere else in Samara. Michelle was a great host.

    Andrew2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to fall asleep to the sound of the waves crashing on the shore. The ideal place to watch the sunrise. Quiet location but with easy access to the town highly recommended.

    Sámara, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    Jardin is a short walk from Samara’s beach, restaurants and nightlife. Jardin has 2 private bedrooms, equipped kitchen, living room, great outside space and jungle views. It boasts handcrafted furniture and comfy beds. Jardin shares a pool with the other 5 villas here at Villas Espavel. With the beautiful shared pool and towering trees nestled against the jungle and a seasonal river, you’ll relish the cool shade when the rest of town is scorching. Villa Jardin is good for families and groups.
    Villa Jardin is one of 6 Villas on the peaceful grounds of Villas Espavel. 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. Jardin is a cool ground floor Villa with an airy porch for outdoor dining and hanging out. You’ll find orthopedic mattresses, comfortable pillows, reading lights, shelves, clothes hanging space and a combination safe for your valuables. There is a full size sofa bed to accommodate additional guests. There is one bathroom with a hot-water shower and space for your toiletries. In each kitchen you’ll find a 4-burner electric stove and all the kitchen implements you’ll need to prepare beautiful meals. There are powerful ceiling fans to keep you cool; over the beds, in the living area and on the outside patio. We spend most of our time outside and I bet you will too. A favorite pass time is swinging in the hammock while looking at the green jungle. Or cooling off in the pool after a walk back from town. Villas Espavel is very secure as the property is hidden away down a long driveway. All the windows have window screens and security bars. 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 is a fabulous place with a small shared pool, just a 7 min walk from an epic, huge beach. The unit was clean, spacious, with great features, including a front porch with table, chairs and hammock. This is the kind of place you can settle into for weeks. Loved it!!

    Alexis2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed 3 nights there and we really enjoyed it! It’s super well situated, in a calm area and near everything you need. The little terrace and the pool was a big plus. Also the little book with all the tips was so useful we appreciated it a lot! Our only regret is not staying longer! Thanks a lot for everything!! I definitely recommend it to everyone!

    Natali2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Villa Espavel is simply perfect, from reception to departure everything goes smoothly. The owners and the rest of the team are always on hand and ready to help. They make the stay even more pleasant. The pool and facilities are immaculate. The place is great location and everything is easily accessible on foot. For us, in Samara villa Espavel is a must to find accommodation and enjoy your vacation.

    Sébastien2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay in a wonderful setting, yet close access to the town of Samara. Beds were comfortable and there were some cooking supplies which made it easier to cook. We spent much of our time on the shaded porch enjoying the lovely setting.

    Barbara2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place to stay in Samara. Johanna is an awesome property manager, there to answer any questions. Great to be able to rent boogie boards right on site👍👍👍

    Alex2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • This place is awesome! Clean, well kept and great common areas like the pool and yoga platform. Also super thoughtful touches like the coffee and the floaties for the pool for our toddler. Also, the on-site manager told us about an amazing horseback riding experience to a private beach. Good vibes!

    Elana2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Very cozy and quiet place, all clean and tidy. The location is pretty good, we would go back without thinking

    Villa Eden blue , one of 4 houses in a gated community Eden Blu Paradisio, was designed with comfort, elegance, and entertaining in mind. You will enjoy the amazing lap pool with view on ocean .A/C in the 3 bedrooms and living-room .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 the bach and center, with a beautiful ocean view and a wonderful 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. Double-wide glass doors open up, connecting the kitchen, living room/dining room to the patio and pool area. Suntan on poolside lounge chairs or relax under the covered patio.
  • You will not find a better place to enjoy the wonderful seaside town of Samara. First, Valeria was so accommodating as we arrived quite late in the evening. She was there to meet us and show us around. While the house was great (comfortable beds, good kitchen etc.), the real gem was the outdoor area of the house. The setting is stunning, the "monkey show" each evening was not to be missed. The pool was a life saver after a long day on the beach or returning from an adventure trip. Location is perfect, private with beautiful views, but so close, easy walk to everything. We spent many hours at the patio/pool area, simply perfect. And Felix did such a great job keeping the pool clean. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Samara.

    Leigh2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic and great place. 2 minute walk to the action...very safe and Samara is great ! Private backyard with pool is great! Place has everything you need with lots of space. We will be back for sure, could not be happier with our stay!

    James (Rick)2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • Terrific highly recommend

    Harold2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I loved our stay at this luxurious villa.We spent most of our time in the pool and outside deck.We saw many monkeys in the morning,iguanas and even a coati in the surrounding area.Was a great place to stay in Samara!

    Ylan2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • We loved the place...location was spectacular. We have rented many times in Samara and the key pick up was very efficient. The pool was perfect. The gentleman that took care of the pool and grounds did an amazing job. The bedrooms were roomy and the ac was much appreciated. Thank you for a great place to stay in beautiful Samara 😊

    Rachel2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Incredible space. It’s gated on a very small street that holds three similar homes. It’s nice being that close to town 5-10 min walk to everything yet so secluded and private due to the hill and gate. It’s amazing to have a pool as well! Great host with an incredible team that made everything very easy and comfortable.

    Peter2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Our group consisted of two couples traveling together and we stayed at Barbara’s house for 10 days. Worked out beautifully. Fabulous location.....private, two minutes walk to a grocery store and five minutes to the beach. We all like to cook and found lovely local ingredients. Pool was fun. Perfect for a group or family.

    Terry2020-01-15T00:00:00Z
  • What a great house! Yes, it’s up a big hill, a 3-4 minute heavy walk up, but it’s worth it, because the view is spectacular and you’re just far enough away from the Main Street that you have total privacy and tranquillity but you can still easily walk to town and the beach. The kitchen is stocked with lots of dishes, appliances, and utensils - we made a full thanksgiving dinner for six, and had almost everything we needed. The house is very well maintained, the pool is incredible! It’s the jungle, so there are some bugs/ants/spiders, and bats at night, but you need to learn to love this, because it’s jungle paradise, and bugs come with everything else here that’s amazing like beautiful birds, monkeys, raccoon and more. Highly recommend!!

    Mira2020-04-29T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely and pleasant little house in the center of Samara, a stone's throw from the Natural Center, 5 minutes from the beach on foot and accommodations, restaurants. If you want to live a tica experience, this little house is really ideal! The two huge ceiling fans were our best friends, the shower is spacious, useful room storage, fridge, microwave, stove, and the wonderful hammock to listen to the birds and watch the iguanas go by! Stay 10/10!

  • Sandra's place is great. Super close to beach. Breakfast at Luv Burger was delicious. Cute space. Fully stocked kitchen, though cooking was challenging because of the heat.

    Olivia2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • Right on the beach, and right in town. Location was the highlight

    Mari2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • Sandra's place is the most perfectly located in all of Samara. Also the LuvBurger breakfast is an amazing perk!

    Tracey2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Ideal location! A few meters from the beach, the place is very secure, clean, the family who lives on site and manages the place is very nice even if not very communicative. Equipment of the apartment very good, everything was very clean and in good condition. We had brought a mosquito net and the hook was already in place, the top! Small flat for breakfast included at the Luv Burger, they open at 9am and are not really operational at that time (incomplete menu, closed grill, tables not cleaned ....) We had concerns about Wifi, or rather no wifi during our stay but it also feels good to disconnect, and the place is suitable for it. But apart from that everything was perfect in Samara and we would have liked to stay longer in this little paradise!

    Audrey2019-12-05T00:00:00Z
  • Sandra's place is so cute and perfect. It's pretty much the best location in Samara, just steps from the beach, and right in the centre of town. Close to everything you could need. Very safe, cute and very clean. Check-in was a breeze and I enjoyed my stay very much!

  • Very good address, very well located with everything within walking distance, restaurant, shops, beach. Very pleasant terrace with hammock. Clean, very nice pool with pretty vegetation around. Very helpful Elena provided us with an umbrella for the beach. Cold water fountain avoids buying water

  • Our stay at elena's place was great. The place was really clean and amazingly well located. Right in town and few minutes of walk from the beach. The pool was much appreciated on warm days and we spent quite a few afternoons there with the kids. Elena is a great host and made sure we had everything. Highly recommend this place!!!

    Shawn2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Simply a wonderful little oasis with a fantastic host. Quiet and private with a great location. The best place to stay in Samara

    Ed2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation is spacious, super well equipped, very clean and comfortable. The exteriors are very pretty and the pool is great. Very welcoming host and the lady who takes care of the maintenance is incredibly kind. I recommend 100%

    Benoite2020-02-03T00:00:00Z
  • A super place. Nice room and kitchen, nice pool and so clean everywhere. We could not wish it better.

    Elisabeth2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I stayed at Elenas property again this year, this is our second time staying with her(2 years in a row). It is so nice to arrive to a familiar place when traveling away from home. The staff were the same as last year and are always so friendly and welcoming. This property is gated and feels very safe which is a huge thing for us when we travel. The apartments themselves are all very well maintained and clean, and the private pool and lounge area is a saving grace when it is +35 and you need a cool place to hang. It is well located and is such a short walk to the beach and ocean every day. It is surrounded by so many amazing food places as well! The only thing we have a hard time with is the beds, they are quite hard and not very comfortable, but if the beds were upgraded to a memory foam or something at some point... I don’t think I would never leave haha. Sleeping on the bed for 7 - 10 days is hard for us (I have chronic back pain to begin with) but its a small price to pay for the rest of the property. Also, if you travel in groups or with another couple this is a great property if you can snag 2 of the apartments! Separate living areas for each couple or group but still in the same compound! We plan on continuing to visit Costa Rica yearly and hope Elena has room for us again next year! Thank you Elena for helping make another trip to Costa Rica successful!!

  • Great place

    Oscar2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Elena's place was excellent. In the heart of Samara, 5 minute walk to the beach, secure free parking, clean and bright unit, and right off the pool (surrounded by plants) which the kids (3 and 5) used all the time. Very quiet, despite being just off the main road. The large supermarket right across the road was super convenient for supplies and use of the kitchen. Great value, would stay there again.

Monkeys playing in trees are also a common sight right outside the condo building. Sámara has a perfect blend of local authenticity and international tourists alike. It is a very welcoming town to travellers of all ages and walks of life. There is something special for everyone here, and it is waiting for you to find it.
  • Everything from check-in to the sunset was magical in this apartment. The view, location, people, town, everything was truly amazing. Thank you for having us, and we look forward to the next visit.

    Girard Daniel2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • The condo has an amazing view of Samara and the ocean. It was clean and had everything we needed. It is close walk to the beach and only minutes from the town with restaurants and stores. The pool was great to spend the hot afternoons at. The elevator to the complex isn’t working which was no issue for us but might be for someone with mobility issues staying on a higher floor unit. There was an issue with the water not working in the complex during our stay which seemed to be an ongoing issue per the other guests.

    Greg2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing view! Clean and nice apartment!

    André2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • A spectacular place .... A new, clean house overlooking the ocean, fresh and pleasant ...... I recommend it at 1000x thousand ...........

    Fausto2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Literally THE best view in Sámara, it's absolutely breathtaking. If you're visiting Sámara, you need to stay here. We loved that the beach was across the street and being able to relax in the pool right after. The town is also a short 5 minute walk down the road with so many good restaurants. The apartment is clean and modern with updated appliances, even a washer & dryer. There is no other option, you must stay here on your trip to Sámara! We'll definitely be staying here again next time. Loved it!

    Paulina2019-12-18T00:00:00Z

    Hi everyone, and welcome to Casa de Charlie. It's a beautiful property right on the beach side, with a very nice garden and a rancho (beach house), looking at the ocean as you wake up. It's a nice place where I like to keep things relaxed and I am always smiling and with positive energy. Close to the center of Samara, everything you need can be found close from the house, at walking distance.
    It's a very friendly house, where you'll feel like you are invited to spend the night, and not just a place where you leave your things and come back for the night. I enjoy sharing moments with anyone who is looking to create some good memories of their trip.
  • Charlie’s place was one of my favorite spots to stay in Costa Rica. The location directly on the beach was amazing, the private room was simple but comfortable and the general vibe of the spot was very fitting for the little town of Sámara. Above all, Charlie was an awesome host who gave us some great tips and was always game for some great conversation. Great place.

    Daniel2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • Charlelie’s place was one of the coolest places we stayed at. You couldn’t get a more perfect location, as it was steps away from the town and then even fewer steps to the beach, as there is access from the house. The place was clean and safe - and Charlelie was very friendly and helpful! We would recommend this place 100 times over! Thanks Charlelie!

    Krystyna2019-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • A very human and warm reception focused on sharing. Single room, functional and clean, feet in the sand on the beach with a kitchen to prepare his meal! Thank you Charlelie :)

    Sébastien2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Charlie is a great host, relaxed atmosphere and the location is unbeatable! I’ll definitely stay again. Thanks Charlie!

    Carolyn2019-09-20T00:00:00Z
  • Best location possible in the middle of Sámara town. Simple accommodation but you can’t be closer to everything. The beach is right at the back door. The room was a little hot an extra fan would be nice, but other than that I had a wonderful stay here and would come back again. He has a lovely puppy and two incredible kittens that made our stay extra enjoyable.

    Rachel2019-07-06T00:00:00Z
  • Charlelie's place may be a new name on Airbnb, but the home and property are one of the first in Samara formally known as Casa Perla Mar. The location is right on the beach in the center of Samara. There is space to park a vehicle off the street and behind a gate. Restaurants, stores, and things to do are all within walking distance. Music and activities are nearby and end at a reasonable time of the night which makes this location convenient and still a place to rest and enjoy. The property retains the charm of Samara with a nice garden area that opens to the sand of the beach. This remains a chill and impressively simple place to stay, and you may feel like family making use of a house which holds the charm and history of Samara.

  • Bhakti and J's place was perfect! We needed a last minute place to stay with all the changes happening so quickly and we ended up having to return home earlier than intended.....BUT so happy we found this little gem in samara making our last few nights memorable 😁 what amazing hospitality and perfect location right by a grocery store and close to restraunts and the beach! thanks again bhakti and J!!!!

    Megan2020-03-21T00:00:00Z
  • Such an amazing place to stay. It felt very comfortable, and the space is gorgeous. Bhakti and J are great hosts and will help with anything.

    Joshua2020-03-18T00:00:00Z
  • Bhakti and J are marvellous and their unit is large, bright, and well-appointed. It takes up about half of their home and faces the courtyard with a small pool. J's recommendations about restaurants were appreciated as I had two excellent dinners about 5 minutes walking time from the house. A large new supermarket, a bakery, and various other shops are in the same location. It is about a 15 minute walk to the beach and beachfront restaurants. Five Stars!

    Paul2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent accommodations! Would definitely recommend!

    Bill And Glendy2020-02-12T00:00:00Z
  • Peaceful stay, comfy beds, well equipped - even has a beach umbrella. Well situated. good value, friendly hosts - highly recommend

    Eddie2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Bhakti and J (and Fiona) are the best hosts! They were so welcoming and accommodating upon our arrival and were also very helpful with all of our questions prior to the trip. The place was perfect. Very comfortable with everything we needed including the beautiful new pool right outside! Their location is perfect - everything you need is within easy walking distance, especially the beach! I highly recommend taking a private yoga class with Bhakti - her sweet, positive energy fills the beautiful, open air yoga space (complete with howler monkeys in the backyard trees!). It was an incredible experience that I will never forget. You will love Bhakti and J's place!

    Kelly2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying at Bhakti and J's house. The apartment was everything we needed. It is spacious, fully equipped kitchen, nice bathroom with hot shower, the beds were really good also the sofabeds. We were a family of 4 and it was perfect. The pool is very nice as well. The location of the house is perfect as well - only 5 min walk to the very nice beach:) Two large supermarkeds also within 5 min walk. Super friendly hosts- thanks again:) We highly recommend staying here

    Pernille2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • I expected to be thoroughly happy and Atras Del Sol did not disappoint. I truly enjoyed having the outdoor private yoga class with my sisters. Bhakti and J went above and beyond and were attentive to all requests we had. The location was excellent and minutes from the beach. The cool swimming pool was an added bonus! I am looking forward to returning next year!!

    The apartment is very cozy, excelent for families, couples and friends who are looking for relaxation and to know a beautifull beach such as Samara. The place has everything you should need, a kitchen all equiped, wifi, hot water, and the best view you will get in Samara for the price. you can walk to the beach and which is at 100 mts and the center at 400 mts. The apartment has its own private parking for your car.
    The best part of our house is the view, you can see all the bay of Samara and enjoy an unique sunset, also you can enjoy the sound of the sea and nature surrounded of a tropical environment, You can be sure that you will see a lot of wild animals because of the location, so you will experience something more real in your staying.
    This is a place very calm in a hill where you have a great view, and near the center of Samara where you can find grocery stores, restaurants, bars, etc, also you can walk 100 mts to the beach
  • Agustin's place was perfect! It was super clean. The beds were new and comfortable. Everything you need for cooking is in the kitchen. All the basic amenities were thoughtful and plentiful: soaps, toilet paper, towels, wifi. He sends really helpful and detailed instructions for finding the apartment (which is especially helpful in Costa Rica where it is neither common or uncommon to have roads that are not labeled), getting to the beach and using everything in the apartment. Location: AMAZING! It is a 5 minute walk to the beach and from there you can walk to town and restaurants and bars that are all along the beach. Added benefit: the neighbors at the apartment are really sweet and friendly. And, there is a resident iguana that suns himself on the back porch. Also, you can hear and see howler monkeys with your morning coffee or at dusk. He could definitely charge more for this beach apartment. You will love it here!

    Josh2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Location super close to the beach, within walking distance (3min); Very receptive host, responds very quickly to messages.

    Julien2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place, close to Samara downtown and also the beach, a very nice and beautiful place to stay!

    Eddie2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • Great view and a very confort place. A bit far from the centre if you walk.

    Jose2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • The location of the apartment is privileged by the view to the ocean, very easy to walk or car, although you could hear the loud sound of vehicle traffic, it was mixed with the waves of the sea, we feel very comfortable, it is very safe, the location is perfect, very close to the sea (4 minutes walking) and a little away from the hustle and bustle of the town, the apartment is well equipped with the necessary utensils to pass it without need although a screen to see good movies would be great to relax after of pleasant days of sun and sea, the internet was very efficient We loved the place surrounded Green fresh, iguanas climbing the trees, on the balcony we had the visit of a Pixote (coati) we heard howler monkeys that greeted in the morning and in the afternoon . Martin was always aware of us ready to help if necessary, but everything was perfect, To travelers who want to visit Sámara We recommend this accommodation is ideal discreet safe and quiet. Tarsicio and Marianela

    Tarsicio Y Marianela2019-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice place for 2 or 3 persons. Great view over the ocean. Very large garage so you have always a cool car when you starts the day. You don,t need a AC because the vans do there work well.

    Chris2019-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Prime location! We rented a car and had access to 4 beautiful local beaches within 15-20 minute drives from the house! Waking up in the morning with a view of the ocean was super relaxing! Favorite part of my stay was eating breakfast on the patio while watching iguanas play. I’ll be back for sure!

    Tiffany2019-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Five minute walk to the beach makes this a perfect place. You can see and hear the waves from this spot! Expect to hear howler monkeys and a variety of bird songs in the mornings. You get lots of privacy in this apartment!

    Could you imagine how beautiful a sunrise would be on a Costa Rican beach? Surrounded by the sea and warmed by the sun Casa Amanecer in the beautiful Sámara beach is the perfect place for you to have a extraordinary natural experience. Located steps from the beach and center of town Casa Amanecer allows you to appreciate the sea from your private garden. During your stay at Casa Amanecer you will enjoy fully equipped lofts with clean, comfortable rooms and a big terrace perfect for you to relax.
    Casa Amanecer is a quiet place for rest and reading, overlooking the sea and fresh breeze
    The location is perfect to go out to eat or just go for a walk on the beach.
  • We loved staying here. It is in a fantastic location right on the beach. It was so enjoyable to get up in the morning and have coffee on the front porch with the ocean view. We also appreciated how well equipped the kitchen was for food preparation. We only used one of the bedrooms but the king sized bed in the master bedroom was really comfortable. All the bedrooms have AC, and all the rooms in the house have ceiling fans that, along with the ocean breezes, keep the house at a comfortable temperature. I am always conscious about security in Costa Rica and the security at Casa Amanecer was really good. The large property is completely gated and all the windows are barred; a heavy iron gate along the front porch can be closed to completely lock up the house. It was only my husband and I staying and we felt totally secure at night. I hope we can go back one day.

    Krista2020-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • The location can't be beat. Right on the beach and next door to a Spanish school. Walking distance to all restaurants. Spacious house with all you need.

    Jody2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location, huge property, sparkling clean and nice thoughtful touches. José is polite and attentive. The rooms are on the smaller side of life but they have AC.

    David2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time at this home. It's super clean, kitchen is well stocked, it's right on the beach. We hope to return next winter.

    Jeanette2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Jose’s place is literally right on the beach! We loved the easy access to everything and the outdoor showers are an excellent touch!

    Deseree2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • Best beach house in Samara!! Prime location, spacious house, cool air conditioning units in each bedroom, full kitchen with all the cookware you would ever need. But you don’t really need to cook because all the restaurants are walkable. Great place for a family beach trip. We loved everything.

    Clint2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time in José's very well equipped house, which is even more beautiful than in the photos. It seems that we have thought of everything to make this house a little paradise on earth, where you can enjoy an incredible outdoor space, in great comfort. Cooks will recognize this exceptional Airbnb by the quality of the knives at their disposal!

    Jessie2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Jose's house cannot be beat! This is the second time we have stayed here and the location is so close to everything- right on the beach, town and restaurants on the beach are steps away. The noise from life outside the house is minimal. All the bedrooms have air conditioning. Jose has updated the kitchen and bathrooms since last time we stayed and they are all fabulous. There is also a new back patio space that was lovely. Washer and dryer (however, you don't really need a dryer) in the house make it super easy to pack light. If you are looking for a family-friendly surf town with a fenced-in house right on the beach- this is your place!!

  • Vadim was a great host. The location is great. The walk to town and the beach isn't far, but it can be a little sketchy with traffic since there's no sidewalk or shoulder. We enjoyed staying at the place and loved the quieter beach atmosphere of Samara. Definitely recommend it!!

    Shane2019-07-18T00:00:00Z

    Hi! I'm Patrick the owner of this condo and the of the building. I am so excited you're searching for a great place to stay in Sámara and that you've found Alta Vista. I don't believe you need to look anywhere else - I am confident, and the reviews back this up, that our quality, location, and 'at home' feeling make us the best accommodation in Sámara for your vacation! This listing is for Condo Begonia on the second floor, a modern luxury two bedroom, two bathroom condo. As the owner-manager, my philosophy is to provide a place to stay that I would be ecstatic to discover and eager to come back to as a repeat guest. My goal is to exceed your expectations by providing a world-class stay in a beautiful unique location! I completed the construction of Alta Vista December 2008 and no one would believe the building is ten years old - I have a full-time maintenance employee, Dennis, who keeps the property freshly painted and spotless. I work diligently to maintain all the electrical appliances as well as linens and kitchen accouterments like new. Laura, my administrator, and Xinnia the housekeeper round out the team - a huge part of what makes Alta Vista #1 in Sámara! For a quick glance at our amenities, all condos have free high-speed wifi internet, air conditioning, fully stocked kitchens, secure covered parking, cable TV internet ready for Netflix etc, and a splash pool. What do our guests say about the property? That it looks better in person than the pictures show! A great compliment, I'm not sure how to get better pictures ( I hired a professional) but I think sometimes the synergy of a beautiful condo with breathtaking views combined with a meticulously maintained building, the best location in town and a great staff focused on exceeding your expectations - adds up to guests falling in love with Alta Vista. Location, location, location! You don't need a car to stay at this property; the majority of our guests take the short stroll two blocks down to the beach with amenities we provide such as beach chairs, beach towels, beach umbrella, cooler and boogie board. Walking to town is a gorgeous tropical 15 min walk along the beach. If you prefer to have a car there is a designated spot for you on-site in the secure, covered parking garage. Security? Best in Samara. Meet Dennis, a local of Sámara and national fúbol (soccer) hero who played for the Costa Rican National team. He essentially lives at Alta Vista cleaning and gardening during the day and watches over the building at night. Rest assured you and your loved ones are safe! He also helps with your baggage, the bbq, finding the fresh catch of the day, or helping you to learn Spanish! He is a gem! In line with the best service in town is Laura, who will meet you at check in! What other rental condo or home has this feature? Most simply have a lock box. Not us. Laura greets you with a smile, speaking English or Spanish, and will show you the building and your condo and answer all your questions. She knows the building inside and out as well as the town of Sámara making her a priceless addition to the team. She's available throughout your stay to help out and she'll be there at your check out as well. I'm available as well via email or phone call. Check in time is 3pm. Check out time is 11am. Both times are subject to change - it depends if someone checked out earlier that day, or if someone is checking in later that day. If someone is checking in later that day, the check-out time is 10am. If someone checked out earlier that day, check in is at 5pm. Please check with us - we will work to accommodate your needs! What else sets us apart? Each of the condos faces the beach and ocean with floor to ceiling sliding glass doors. The sliding glass doors open to the furnished balcony where you can enjoy your morning coffee or a sunset glass of wine with the best view in town. The balcony offers what few others can offer - outdoor living with a view! The condo is not directly on the beach but second best, it looks an empty over horse pasture to the beach and ocean. The recently re-paved tranquil road in front of the building is a dead-end at the beach which equals a safe and quiet walk to the sand, as well as pleasant people watching from your balcony. The building is located on the tip of the bay of Sámara, not in the downtown area, which is why I bought this property. It is close enough to enjoy the town and far enough away not to hear town when you want peace and quiet which is one of many reasons families prefer to stay at Alta Vista. The modern decor inside the condo allows you to relax fully. The floor to ceiling windows facing the beach and ocean is a constant reminder you are in paradise! Ocean breezes flow through the condo if you choose to keep the windows open, or air conditioners will keep you cool - one in each bedroom as well as in the living room. The fully stocked kitchen has all you need, from full-sized stainless steel appliances to in-sink garbage disposal, it is modern and lacks for nothing. There is a shared washer/dryer for all guests to use for free, I simply ask you to provide your own detergent. For additional outdoor living, I offer all guests the use of the shared Congo Lounge, the top (fourth) floor roofed patio terrace. There are hammocks, sofa's, armchairs, and a dining set. The view from your condo balcony is excellent, and multiply that a few times and you get an exquisite view from the Congo Lounge. Not only are the views of the beach breathtaking, but the forest views behind the building are also home to iguanas, pelicans, and monkeys! The trees team with families of monkeys perusing the branches for a snack. Look closely and you'll see tiny baby monkey's riding along on their mothers back. The splash pool immediately in front of the building, perfectly visible from your balcony, receives the glorious sun all morning and is shaded in the afternoon making it perfect for families who explore the beach and surfing in the morning and lounge by the pool in the afternoon. The pool is only 4ft deep and it has huge stairs for growing children to play on. There are patio lounge chairs as well as a dining set and BBQ for all guests to enjoy. As if all this wasn't enough to set us apart, we offer including regular cleaning. For guests staying more than four nights we include is a light cleaning every fourth day (mid-week) where we take out the trash, change the bathroom towels, sweep and mop the condo. For reservations more than seven nights, we provide a full cleaning on the 8th day, and every 8th day after that. The full cleaning includes everything provided in the light cleaning plus changing of the bed linens and kitchen cleaning. More cleaning is an option at an additional cost. Please note my team and I work exceptionally hard to keep the Condos perfect but there are occasional problems that arise, such as with the a/c, or power outages, ants, or on very rare occasions the wifi is finicky. Just please be patient, it is Costa Rica! Let us know and we'll start right away to get the problem straightened out. Our goal is to exceed your expectations by providing a world-class stay in a beautiful unique location! This Condo, Condo Begonia, is on the second floor. It is a two bedroom, two bathroom condo approximately 1400 square feet. The master bedroom has a king bed and ensuite bathroom with views of the ocean and beach. The guest bedroom has two individual beds with its own balcony and views of the forest behind the building . The kitchen is white-line with first-world size and quality appliances, full-size stainless steel refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, stove with range-top, microwave with extractor fan, in-sink garbage disposal, and all the smaller appliances like blender, toaster and coffee maker. The living room has a flat-screen TV with the local cable service and DVD player giving you access to Netflix and other online streaming services. The living room has a plush chaise-lounge sofa combo with the main sofa folding out to the floor for a queen size sofa-sleeper, and the chaise-lounge which can work as a single bed. The kitchen, dining area and family room all combine to a great room or open floor plan design. The kitchen has a breakfast nook with seating for four. The dining table has seating for six. The mattresses in the bedrooms are orthopedics - I personally picked out and approved each mattress - and I stay in each condo from time to time as a perk of the job as well as quality control - to ensure you get a good nights rest. The bathrooms are modern and minimalist. You can flush the toilet paper just like North America or Europe! I designed the building with a two-chamber septic tank (same as I have here in Colorado) which allows you to flush toilet paper and just as you're probably used to - nothing else please! In Costa Rica, the normal septic tank has just one chamber so you can't flush toilet paper. The showers and faucets have hot water. The kitchen sink has a garbage disposal but please just like at your home - nothing more than plate scraps! No fruit peels, no fish bones, no coffee grinds please. All my listings have instant booking so if your ready go ahead and book! All prices are in US dollars. The system won't let you book dates that are not available. The pricing software automatically gives a 10% discount for a stay over six nights, and a discount of 33% of stays longer than 27 nights - essentially one week free for every four weeks stayed. The $150 damage deposit is pre-authorized to your card so you will only be charged in the case of something broken or missing. I have a legitimate Hotel license in Costa Rica, I pay taxes to the government, all legal establishments as such pay 13% tax. I believe in supporting the country that supports this piece of paradise! Please ask any questions, I'm here to help! Sincerly, Patrick McGoey Owner
    The space inside Condo Begonia can be described as simple, modern, clean, and relaxing. The giant floor-to-ceiling windows that face the beach and ocean are the biggest picture frame you could have! There is a private balcony with furniture to enjoy this view from. The beds are upscale as are the linens, provided by Alta Vista. The open floor plan allows for easy movement, relaxation, and enjoyment of the view. There are three individual a/c units to keep you cool.
    Alta Vista is in the Samara neighborhood of Cangrejal, on the north end of the bay of Samara. Cangrejal is a Costa Rican neighborhood, an old fishing village, and is very quiet with no loud music or bars. There is a great casual restaurant in Cangrejal just down the street towards the beach from Alta Vista called "La Perla" which offers great healthy local cuisine at reasonable prices. Two blocks away from Alta Vista opposite the beach is a popular supermarket named "La Iguana Verde", a medium size grocery and liquor store. The neighborhood like Sámara is safe in general. However always be aware of your personal belongings on the beach or in public. Please be safe yourself and considerate to the other guests of the building by closing and locking your parking garage gate.
  • Wonderful condo that is a 5 minute walk away from the beach and also a very close walk to get to town and restaurants. The space is very comfortable with a fully stocked kitchen, nice bathrooms and great outside deck. Check in and out were easy as we were met exactly when we arrived. Highly recommend.

    Christopher2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • We knew from our research this would be a nice condo, but were blown away on arrival by a condo that truly exceeded expectations. The condo has everything we needed for a great stay: comfortable beds, well equipped and clean kitchen, great wifi, aircon. The beach is so close, but the splash pool was a nice extra we appreciated. On our last day there were monkeys in the trees surrounding the condos - it was super fun watching them swing and jump from tree to tree!

    Jonathan2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent location- close to the beach, but also away from congestion. Alta Vista has a nice vibe. Communication was excellent. The on-site people (Laura and Denis) helped with everything that came up. When we return to Sámara, we will definitely stay at Alta Vista again.

    Peter2019-12-07T00:00:00Z
  • This was even better than I imagined when I booked it. Incredible views and incredible space, easy check in and check out with Laura the manager, walking distance to the beach and the town. It was perfect. The condo blew our minds, it was so lovely. Laundry on site, three balconies, bright and clean and airy. We had an incredible time. We almost had to make ourselves leave the condo to go do things because we were so relaxed and at home there. Our only complaint is that the beds were uncomfortable and VERY LOUD any time you moved a muscle. That may not bother some but it was an issue for us (my 1 year old daughter was sleeping in the room with us) however, it wouldn’t prevent me from booking again because the views and space itself were so incredible.

    Amanda2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • really nice place to enjoy and lay back. the rooftop and pool is perfect for a beer after a long day at the beach. the pictures really dont lie. I would really recommend patricks condo to everyone who wants to have a good time in samara.

    Colin2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • Sparkling clean, plenty of space for my family of four, walking distance to the beach, many local sodas, and markets for groceries. Refreshing, small pool to cool off in or lounge by at the condo. We saw over a dozen monkeys playing in trees next to the condo, also lots of coati, lizards, etc. Covered, secure parking and onsite security (although we felt completely safe in Samara during our entire stay and walked around town at night with no issue). Highly recommend!

    Kari2019-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • IT was a beautiful place to stay. Everything was perfect. We spent a very good Time in the condo Bégonia

    Mar is a short walk from Samara’s beach, restaurants and nightlife. You’ll love Mar because of the equipped kitchen, great patio, handcrafted furniture, cozy window seat, fast WIFI, no TV and comfortable beds. Mar and 5 other villas share our beautiful pool on the Villas Espavel property, which is nestled against the jungle and a seasonal river. With our towering trees you’ll relish the cool shade of Villas Espavel when the rest of town is scorching. Mar is good for families and small groups.
    Villa Mar is one of 6 Villas on the peaceful grounds of Villas Espavel. 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. Mar is a breezy loft Villa with an airy porch for outdoor dining and hanging out. The loft has an orthopedic queen mattress, one twin mattress and a small window seat bed that is perfect for a child under 9. There is a twin sofa bed on the first floor to accommodate another person. The bathroom is on the first floor and has a hot-water shower and space for your toiletries. You’ll find comfortable pillows, reading lights, shelves, clothes hanging space and a combination safe for your valuables. In each kitchen you’ll find a 4-burner electric stove and all the kitchen implements you’ll need to prepare beautiful meals. There are powerful ceiling fans to keep you cool; over the bed/s, in the living area and on the outside patio/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. 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.
  • My family and I had a wonderful stay. I cannot recommend this place enough. Great spot for kids. Definitely rent bikes for a relaxing way to enjoy the town.

    Sarah2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely stay at Villa Mar. The pool was great and our family enjoyed it multiple times a day. The outdoor yoga space was also enjoyed as an extra outdoor space. The local tips on places to visit and how to source local foods were outstanding and Johanna was very helpful. The house was not 100% clean on arrival but they were quick to fix this once we commented. The space in the villa is a bit small for a family of 4 for a week but still comfortable.

    Laura2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place with nice staff!

    Charlotta2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • Villa Mar is a great unit in the beautiful Villa Espavel grounds. The neighborhood is so central to the beaches and town, a car is not needed to easily get around. The management team of Tano and Johanna is great, very quick to respond to any questions. The grounds are beautiful with a sparkling clean pool, great little zip line for the kids and a jungle swing over the little river bed. We appreciated the AC in the evenings! The villas have boogie boards and bikes for rent, as well as washer and dryer available for guest use (dryer is a minimal fee, we hung out our clothes to dry on the lines all but once which was perfect). We appreciated the care and attention for the environment with the composting and recycling bins for guest use. Our first coffee and a few beers were provided, as well as sarongs for beach use and beautiful towels for the pool. The rancho was great for stretching, having coffee, or just relaxing in the afternoon. Our family had a great stay for 2 weeks and I would highly recommend to anyone staying in Samara for a few nights or weeks.

    Rossi2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time here! Loved every minute of it and we were super sad to leave, we could have easily stayed one more week. There’s so much to do for the whole family in the villa or the cute little town. Everything is reachable by foot or by bike and the beaches are just beautiful. Would definitely come back, anytime!

    Domi2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic casitas with attentive staff. Great location. Equipped lodging for a relaxing stay. Great hosts. The town is Pura Vida perfection!!!

    Lori2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Mercy and Canuche’s Villas are a wonderful oasis in Samara. They have carefully thought through everything a guest might need and have done their best to accommodate it. Their staff is excellent and responsive as well. They are highly recommended.

    Ben2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • The villas are very nice with all Equipment you need for a perfect stay. You can easy walk to the beach or rent a bike. The beach life in Samara is great! We were surfing and just swimming in the waves in very warm water! Played Beachvolleyball with the locals and did horsebackriding on the beach. Really just perfect.

    Situated just off of Main street in the small beach town of Samara, Casa Amarilla is conveniently located & private. A 4-minute walk to the beach, 3-minute walk to the grocery store, and neighboring the best bakery in town, the location can't be beat. Each room has view to the pool/garden area, rooms 3 and 4 have air conditioning, 1 and 2 have fans, and all have a refrigerator. Keep in mind—there is a private apartment upstairs—guests share the entrance to property as well as pool access.
    Casa Amarilla is in-town, but without the in-town noise. It's secluded behind walls, making it a quiet corner of town where you can relax, cook, swim, and read in peace. You can even book a massage on-site! When you venture out, take a right out of our road and you will be on the Main Street of town. Just down on the right you will find Roots Bakery, where you can find sweet and savory treats for everyone. They also have delicious coffee, smoothies, breakfast, and lunch. From here, it's a straight shot to the beach. Take a left once you're on the beach and come find us at Pato's Surf School (about 300 meters from the main beach entrance), where you can rent surf boards, boogie boards, paddle boards; as well as reserve surf lessons or kayak/paddle board tours.
  • Beautiful place very quiet and safe, all people very friendly. Pool small but clean. I loved

    Davi2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Kate is a warm person who welcomes you with a smile and will answer all your questions without any hesitation. His home is warm and well maintained. In the heart of Sámara but with the desired privacy when you want to withdraw a bit. The kitchen and the swimming pool are a real favorite. All amenities are within walking distance. Possibility to take surf lessons with Pato's school where with the price of the lesson we can then have access to a board for free for the next 5 days.

    Mélanie2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful haven in the middle of a busy touristy, commercial town. Quiet, clean, with a welcome pool, a wonderful inner garden and an open space kitchen. Great advice from the hosts as well.

    Ashley2020-02-29T00:00:00Z

  • Great value. Our room was very basic inside, even sparse (not even a chair)- but pretty clean. However, the outside, common spaces were awesome. Hammocks, comfortable seating areas, great pool. Breakfast was very good. Even had a family of monkeys come over during breakfast. 5 min walk to anywhere in town or the beach.

    A short walking distance to a local grocery store, banks, and restaurants.Casa Bea offers 3 apartments surrounding the tropical garden. Each apartment is totally independent with bathrooms with hot water, TV, and Internet. Lunch and dinner can be requested beforehand. Host Bea was a well-known Chef from Verona. There is also a fully-equipped kitchen, and a large terrace.
    Casa Bea is located just steps from the sea, surrounded by lush tropical vegetation, a five-minute walk from the town center. The apartment is very comfortable, clean, and safe.
    Casa Bea is situated in a lush surrounding of greenery, as well as off the main road. Less than 50 meters away from the beach. A very peaceful and calm place, which is also suitable for honeymooners or a romantic getaway
  • We were staying at a hotel for our honeymoon and left due to arriving and having issues with infestation and the room being dirty. We messed Bea around 9:30pm asking if we could come stay at her place ASAP. She responded and happily accepted. Upon arriving, she waited up for us, messaged to give directions, showed us the room. Told us not to worry about anything we could fill out paperwork she needed the next morning and told us to get some rest. The place was spotless. She left us cookies. Everything you could possibly need was left in this apartment. It was small, comfortable, and spacious. We also spoke with Bea in the morning and she was always so friendly along with her two dogs. She would greet us in passing, but was never invasive and respected privacy. Someone came to clean daily and was trustworthy as well. We had left some money on the table and our passports out one day only to come back to it all in the same spot and the bed made, bathroom picked up. The location is superb. Everything is in walking distance. The area is safe. We are in the process of buying property in Samara is how much we loved this little town. This was a perfect end to our honeymoon our only regret was not staying here longer.

    Bettina2020-03-14T00:00:00Z
  • Great place. Just a couple minute walk to the beach. Short walk to food and shops. Bea is friendly and is on site for any issues that may come up. Would stay here again.

    Alcott2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • As other guests have stated, the location is outstanding! 3 minute walk to beach. Grocery stores, restaurants and shops for beach necessities all close by. Nice hot shower (nice even with sweltering temps!) , though no hot water for dishes. Great air conditioner. The grounds are kept spotless and very secure. I spent three weeks comfortably. Beatrice is very personable and always there to answer questions. While I appreciated the cleaning, especially fresh sheets and towels every few days, there were a few times, including during check-out, when we felt rushed out in the morning so the cleaner could get her work done. A minor inconvenience. I would absolutely stay again and recommend! Samara is a special place!

    Sali2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • CasaBea was a perfect fit for our two week stay in Playa Samara. Comfortable bed, AC worked great, all the conveniences we needed and a beautiful courtyard. We would definitely stay here again.

    Christopher2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Beatrice was such a kind and welcoming host! Her place was very comfortable and quite lovely, and in such a great location. It was also a welcome change from other places that didn't have great insect control; it was well-enclosed and secure and we didn't encounter any bug problems there (for some reason, the insects in CR loved me a lot and I got eaten alive in other places; many people probably won't have this problem but it was a concern for me by the end of my trip). Highly recommended!

    Jess2020-01-16T00:00:00Z
  • Casa Bea is great. Fantastic location - close to beach, restaurants, grocery store, laundry. Super clean, very quiet. Bea was very responsive to everything and her dogs are super-friendly!

    Joyce2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • This space was perfect for a family of three who spent all day at the beach. We'll return.

    Andrew2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • Bea is a fabulous welcoming presence who goes out of her way to make your stay comfortable. Perfect location: walking access to the beach, restaurants, bakery and supermarket-yet private. She respects your privacy yet is available should you need her! Unlike most Airbnb’s we have stayed at, cleaning service was provided during our stay. Thanks for everything!

  • Beautiful house with a sweet little pool (very private), and about 5 minutes walk to the ocean. The town itself is quite charming, with lots to do. We found great groceries, so were able to cook many meals ourselves (which we love to do). Would return in the future.

    Roger2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay at Ed’s place and would recommend staying here! The location is great and is central to the downtown area. Lots of restaurants and the beach is easily walkable. Highly recommend checking out Roots Bakery as well for some delicious coffee and cinnamon buns!

    Rachelle2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great casa, steps from the Main Street in Samara. Very secluded down a quiet road yet steps from shops, restaurants and bars. Ed and Scott (our local check-in contact) responded promptly to our inquiries. The small pool in the back was ideal to jump into after a day of activities! Great outdoor communal area to sit around and just chat about the day. House was just as described, perfect for two couples. Only hiccup was the internet was down due to a recent heavy rain, so really out of Ed’s control. Otherwise stay here for a simple laid back time in the quaint village of Samara.

  • This place is a Oasis of joy totally in the shade with a wonderful house and pool. You can walk to the beach and it really make you feel like a local. I did that place with my mom and kids. Scott is a super host, always near to help. I totally recommand.

    Catherine2020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • Such a nice place. Near the beach and city activity but really calm in the small hidden street

    Jérémie2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Property exactly as described - but a little bit better!! Fantastic location, excellent property management; can’t say enough. The location and yard with pool created a fantastic hideaway from the buzz of Sámara - unless you wanted to walk the few hundred feet to experience it 😁 Can’t go wrong!

    Ken2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • The location of this wonderful house is fab. It’s right at the start of the main strip and a short walk (5 mins) to shops, beach, restaurants basically everything you need/want for a perfect trip to beautiful Samara. The house is the last one down a small quiet side road and backs on to the jungle, the best location on the block. Insect repellent essential to make the most of the gorgeous gardens with passing wildlife and resident iguana. The pool makes an excellent cool off spot. The house is equipped with everything you need for your stay, there are lots of personal touches and it feels like a home. The pictures don’t do it justice. There are beautiful high ceilings inside and it is very spacious with more than enough room for the 4 of us (it sleeps 6, we didn’t even touch one room!) Scott is a really helpful lovely guy who didn’t even bat an eyelid at our post midnight check in. Thanks for an awesome stay. We wish we were still there!!

    Our apartments are located in the center of Sámara, just 3 minutes walk from the beach and the walking distance to grocery store, banks, local restaurants, bars and pharmacy. Our 2 villas offer 4 apartments totally independent with bathroom, hot water, fully equipped kitchen, large terrace and a shared lovely swimming pool!
    The apartment is for 2 people ($15 each extra person) . Bedroom with king size bed and a sofa in the living room, 1 bathroom, comfortable kitchen, a terrace to relax. Table and stools in the living room for breakfast and a table with 4 chairs on the terrace for lunch and dinner. Air conditioning and ceiling fan to ensure cool during the day and night. The apartment is very bright, lots of windows. Internet access available, TV, safe and private parking..and finally, the beautiful swimming pool with Jacuzzi for a warm and relaxing atmosphere in the evening. If you are a couple and you need just one bedroom, you can ask for the larger apartment, but with the price of small!
  • My partner and I stayed here with our 10 month old daughter in March, while Costa Rica went into lockdown due to CV19. Despite this, we had a lovely time. The apartment had everything we needed and is much nicer than it seemed from the pictures. It is very well located near shops, restaurants and the beach, and the supermarket is just across the road - which came in handy when everything else shut down! Elena was a great host, very quick to respond and obviously cared for us and the cleaning staff. And Maria the cleaner was amazing! She cleaned our apartment thoroughly every day and was always full of smiles. Our daughter absolutely loved her and all the attention she gave. I really hope we get to return one day!

    Lucy2020-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place, delightful host. Enjoyed our stay!

    Elaine2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Casa la Chora! The apartments are arranged around a pool and you can enjoy your private space or be social with other guests (in our case many fellow Canadians :) so it feels very welcoming. We had a one bedroom apt and it was spacious with a very comfortable bed, Air con for the bedroom and it was great to have a kitchen to prepare breakfast and lunch...we went out for dinners as there are many restaurants within a few minute walk. Elena and her team of delightful ladies took good care of us and the whole place is kept very clean. The pool is refreshing when returning from a walk. We certainly highly recommend this beautiful property! Pura Vida!

    Colleen2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice accommodations.

    Russell2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Elena's place is fabulous, clean, pool is the right size for our 8 year old and the monkeys and parrots were fun to watch out the back of the property. It is just off the main street ,literally a block from the beach and town centre, with a grocery store right across from place. Elena offered us information about events going on in town. A fabulous vacation

    Sonja2019-12-27T00:00:00Z

    Sámara Beach, Costa Rica Nicoya Guanacaste, Costa Rica

    Just renovated in Jan 2020, this spacious double room with en-suite private bathroom is fully equipped with the comfort you need: a double bed, private bathroom, AC, WIFI and closet. It has a private entrance, a little sitting area in front with table and chairs and a shared kitchen Well located in the center and a 2 min walk from the beach, the property is on a quiet street but within walking distance to all restaurants, bars & supermarkets. Come and soak in the relaxed vibe!
    The property includes another independent double room and a bigger house that accommodates 4. The double room is completely independent and the common area (sitting area and the kitchen) is shared only with one other room. If you're looking to book for more people, don't hesitate to check the other listings in my profile.
    Samara has a laid back tropical feel which we hope you will enjoy. There is a lot to do in the area. The bay has a mellow beach break and therefore the ocean is mostly calm and perfect for kids, swimming, kayaking and many other watersports. Around high tide it’s good for beginner to intermediate surfing. Close by you find lots of small hidden beaches, waterfalls and towns that give you many options to explore. At our accommodation you will find all the info on what Samara and surrounding areas have to offer to make your stay unforgettable.
  • Really a nice quiet place. Well located. Very responsive host.

    Dominic2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • This was our favorite lodging of the trip. Leonie was quick to respond to our questions. The room was nicely decorated and the bathroom, though small had beautiful tile work. The kitchen leaves a bit to be desired but that’s pretty clear from the photo. That kitchen area is shared with a second room so if you plan on cooking, space in the mini fridge might get tight. The location is a short walk to the beach with lots of restaurants, shops, markets and yoga/massage studios along the way. We really enjoyed the gelato at the natural center. There is a cute artisan market on Friday nights and Saturday mornings at Rosas restaurant by the Pali grocery. Candlelight yoga on Sunday evenings at the Tico adventure lodge was incredible and just a 2 minute walk. Air conditioning and hot water worked well. Pretty magenta bougainvillea flowers out front and a black gate. The gate locks as well as the door to each room so it was nice to have that added layer of security. Short walk to the bus stop. Samara is an incredibly special place and this is a charming, centrally located and comfortable home base.

    Tasha2020-03-11T00:00:00Z
  • Nice, clean, comfortable place in the heart of Samara. Good AC, hot water, decent internet. You can walk to everything from here. I’d stay here again. Recommended.

    Tim2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great accommodation! We made a very last minute reservation and Leoni was really helpful and friendly!

    Alec2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • I would definitely stay here again. Excellent location and warmth by Leonie. The room is very fresh and clean, 100% recommended

    Mariana2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Andrea’s place is a great place for a solo traveler who wants to stay close to town and the action but also needs some space from the noise. Very clean and having a kitchen is nice! Would stay here in the future:)

    Ahna2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Couldn’t recommend this apartment more. Great location, communication, facilities. Loenie was so helpful and always on hand to help! Right near a small supermarket and loads of places to eat/drink around. Great place, would definitely stay again if in Samara!

    Holly2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place near everything in Samara. Excellent communication with our host, we really appreciated it. We loved our stayed.

    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 several great restaurants, with a variety of price points. Also very close to the bank and both big grocery stores, a very short walk to the beach (3 - 5 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 on Sundays. Unit sits back on large planted lot that abuts jungle, so plenty of exposure to monkeys, iguanas, birds.
  • Kim is a lovely soul, very responsive to questions and full of interesting information. The unit is very comfortable, I didn't use the AC much but it's there if you need it. Great location in town about 5 mins walk to the beach, Pali is just down the street, banks close by too. Highly recommend and I would have stayed longer if I didn't have to get back home due to COVID-19.

    Krista2020-03-24T00:00:00Z
  • We booked three nights in Kim's apartment and are thrilled. It is perfectly equipped with many details (e.g. beach towels, freezer for the beach, blender to mix fine juices etc.) and the location is ideal. Supermarkets, restaurants, banks, etc. are within walking distance. It is 3-4 minutes to the beach. We particularly liked the balcony. Two comfortable chairs invite you to relax, read or have breakfast. Kim is very nice and laid out. We really appreciated their straightforward nature. If you walk past her in the garden she is always available for a chat. We would definitely go there again since we felt almost at home.

    Carina2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Kim is full of great stories and knowledge. Made great recommendations for activities and places to go. Perfect location with a bank and grocery store across the street, easy and quick access to the beach, and close to restaurants. Kim is a great host and added a lot to our trip!

    Brady2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • Kimberly was a fantastic host! My boyfriend and I were looking for a well located apartment to spend 3 days in Sámara, and found Kim’s listing. Her apartment was clean, comfortable, well appointed and only a short walk from the beach. Upon our arrival, she immediately welcomed us to her home and provided wonderful entertainment and dining recommendations. She was quick to respond to any of my questions and even went above and beyond to make sure our stay was the best if could possibly be. I would highly recommend staying with Kimberly :)

    Erin2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Kim's place was perfect in every way. She was a great host and the location couldn't have been better. I would highly recommend!

    Wyatt2019-11-23T00:00:00Z
  • Loved staying here. It is even better than it appears on the air bnb site. Excellent location. Kim is awesome host. I would definitely stay again and recommend it to anyone going to Samara

    Robert2019-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • Such a wonderful stay. Perfect for a couple to stay! We will always stay there when we come down.

    Natasha2019-05-23T00:00:00Z

  • The place was wonderful. We used it as a retreat before we had to end our travel due to Covid-17. We especially loved the shady, cute balcony and the kitchen (with a blender!). The communication with Esteban was fast and easy. Fantastic host, fantastic accommodation.

    Christian2020-03-28T00:00:00Z
  • I really did feel like a bird in a nest. Samara gets HOT during March and April, and the way the house is built makes it so it never gets too warm and uncomfortable. It’s located down a quiet road, and the view from the balcony is very calming. You will hear dogs barking, monkeys, and cows and horses walking around, which I love! The shower has the most amazing water pressure which felt so good when you want to cool down from the heat, The kitchen is fully stocked with tools (microwave, blender, plates, pans, ect) Esteban is quick to respond to my questions and also reached out to see how I was liking the new place. He’s a sweet dude! BOOK THIS PLACE!

    Erika2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Esteban is a fantastic host! This place is truly a dream. It’s perfect for a couple’s getaway. It is a bit like “glamping” as it is open air, but it felt really nice to be close to the scenery and local wildlife. All of the joys of camping without the bugs and a nice soft bed. Stay here if you get the chance! (There’s a bike rental place a few house down that was $10/day or $30/week. Highly recommend it as the walk is doable but very hot. Get a bike and enjoy the breeze! Thank you, Esteban for your beautiful space.

    Ann-Marie2020-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • This little two-story cabin is absolutely darling! The shower is nice and big, the bed with the mosquito netting was very comfortable. I never did experience any mosquitoes while I was there. Howler monkeys did come by one morning and that was special, you’ll find horses and cows that wander around the neighborhood. It’s a short walk into town

    Elise2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful accommodation in a wooden cottage which it is impossible not to fall in love with! We had a great time there and we will remember our breakfasts and dinners on the beautiful terrace in the middle of the trees! The place is outside the center but very close. In a quarter of an hour you can reach the beach on foot. No problem with insects or barking dogs as we have read in other reviews. The wooden staircase to the bedroom is a bit steep but you get used to it quickly. Highly recommended!

    Alessandra2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • We are in nature, it is very relaxed, we live like the people of this place, with cows, horses, insects, monkeys and dogs.

    Jean2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • The cabin is really pretty and easy to use. There is nothing lacking for cooking (utensils, etc.), it's perfect. We find several grocery stores in the vicinity as well as places where we can rent bikes. The house is located about 10 minutes walk from Playa Samara. We could see and hear a lot of howler monkeys. Stray dogs are really noisy in the neighborhood overnight, to the point of waking us up. However, this is the only downside of the cabin. The place is so beautiful that we would definitely come back!

    Raphaëlle2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • This was a fabulous cabin! Super cute, and great location. Very easy to walk to downtown Sámara and the beach, and very affordable. Esteban was friendly and responsive—he quickly resolved an issue with the WiFi. I would just say be aware that this is an open-air cabin— no air conditioning (though the fans worked well), and while there is water, there is no hot water. You can also hear noises outside clearly (dogs barking, for example). All this was no problem for us, and we very much enjoyed the stay!

    Hi everyone, and welcome to Casa de Charlie. It's a beautiful property right on the beach side, with a very nice garden and a rancho (beach house), looking at the ocean as you wake up. It's a nice place where I like to keep things relaxed and I am always smiling and with positive energy. Close to the center of Samara, everything you need can be found close from the house, at walking distance.
    It's a very friendly house, where you'll feel like you are invited to spend the night, and not just a place where you leave your things and come back for the night. I enjoy sharing moments with anyone who is looking to create some good memories of their trip.
  • Charlie’s place is right on the beach with an amazing location. Charlie is a great host and is helpful in many ways.

    Kelly2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Charlie rocks

    Kabed2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome location, relaxing atmosphere and good for dog and cat lovers. Charlie can speak good English and is very very kind. Definitely worth to visit.

    Daniel2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place, great beach front location, a little piece of paradise. The perfect way to travel cheap and enjoy this wonderful part of the world. Nothing fancy, just what we were looking for. Super friendly host and the cutest puppy and kittens.

    Corina2020-02-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a really nice time at Charlie’s place. He was a great host, very friendly and forthcoming. The location is right on the beach, where you can enjoy cocktails from the restaurant next door. Great place to chill.

    Martin2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • This spot is about location and a great host and value. I am definately coming back

    William2019-12-16T00:00:00Z
  • Charlie a crack, the best thing is that you are at the beach and the good vibes of the environment, it is not a Hostel, it is a real guest house to interact and share experiences with other people. only 3 rooms. Cool

  • We totally enjoyed our stay of two nights. The location is indeed steps from the beach. The breakfast at Luv Burger was a daily highlight. We actually ate every meal there. What a setting. Really liked Samara and enjoyed our stay.

    Thomas2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Great appartment right at the beach. The kitchen has everything you need. There was no mosquito problem and the Wifi worked. Uncomplicated checkin. I can really recommend it.

    Theresa2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • Hello, We loved our stay at Santosha. Aside from around 30 hours without water (problem of the Asana mechanical breakdown company which affected the whole village and nothing to do with Santosha in particular), the place corresponded to the information provided and comments from travelers. The place is not luxurious, quite rustic, but the interior courtyard is wooded and intimate and you can park your vehicle safely. The beach is directly at the end of the lane, about 1 minute of walking at Tico pace. Very well located, in the heart of the village and set back at the same time. We `` shopped '' around during our stay and it was by far the best value for money. The breakfasts included at the LuvBurger are excellent, a plus. We brought a mosquito net with hoop that we installed above the bed and above our table outside. Excellent decision. At the beginning of the dry season (around the end of December), even if mosquitoes are not a disaster, they are present and it can become a significant irritant. With a bit of mosquito repellant and a mosquito net, this is quite tolerable. If you are partiers and like to sleep late in the morning, know that the neighbor's rooster starts to sing before 5:00 am, sometimes during the night. If you're more like going to bed and waking up early, this won't really be a problem. It was our 4th trip to Costa Rica and it was once again a delight, the Samara beach is pleasant, the nearby Carillo beach a wonder and the Camaronal Refuge a must.

    Claude2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • A nice little apartment off the beach, would probably stay again if I go back to Samara! The first night didn't have good water pressure for some reason but after that it was all good.

    Andy2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • A great option for visiting Samara! Steps from the beach, and a short walk to restaurants, cafes, etc. Felt safe, super easy checkin. 10/10 would stay again.

    Daniel2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • Sandra's place is nicely located .just steps away from the beach. It's very convinient. I easily walked every where. The breakfast is amazing. I recommend it.

    Franco2019-09-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great base by the sea. I highly recommend!

    Hannah-Mahé2019-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • Unbeatable place to stay in Playa Samara. The space is comfortable, pleasant, offers cooking facilities and the best thing is that it is just a few meters from the beach, as well as a supermarket and an ATM. On the other hand, it must be said that the breakfasts at Luv Burger are the best.

    Chantal2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • We spent two great weeks in the upper apartment with the huge open-air terrace, wonderful sea view and opportunities for animal watching (monkeys, exotic birds, lizards, coatis...). The house is just off the centre of Sámara, which you can reach by foot in five minutes using the main road that goes towards Playa Carrillo (quite busy, so take care - and use a hand-held or head lamp during the dark!) or through a forest road uphill (good for watching howler monkeys) in ten minutes. The apartment has high ceilings, giving it a spacey atmosphere: we were just the two of us and felt like royals with all the space! The heart of the place is the extraordinary terrace, where we spent most of the time when not in the local beach (or some other, e.g. the magnificent Playa Carrillo) or in the town. We bought hammocks that can be conveniently and safely hung to the terrace constructions (and of course be used at the beach as well). Our host Vadim lives in a separate building just next to the house and was always rapidly available if we had some concerns, and he took immediate action on things. However, we did not encounter any major inconveniences during our stay - except for a rare event of a cut-off of water that affected the whole town during two days. But even that we managed with Vadim's help. All in all, a super experience and a highly recommendable and special place to spend your vacation in easy-going Sámara!

  • This place has an amazing view of the ocean and so close to town in one direction and a beach in the other. Amazing terrace with nice breezes and there's Vadim close by to answer any questions about the area. Can't go wrong choosing this place.

  • Nice view of Samara bay and lot of trees around the house which is good to see Howling monkeys.

    Come and enjoy our new fully-equipped and cozy studio located just 80 mts off beautiful Samara Beach. This is one of two private studios with its own bathroom and kitchen. The warm and welcoming atmosphere of the studio with its unique location will get you in the Costa Rican "Pura Vida" mode very easily. The mango tree in our garden attracts the monkeys, so often wildlife can be seen. The only thing between you and the Pacific is a path full of coconut and mango trees.
    Casita de los Monos is situated in a wonderful location due to the rustic and very special woodwork of the apartment. You can find this Casita off the beaten path, but five minutes to town center, and 80 mts to the beach. The location can't be beat. Let the sounds of the ocean and the sounds of the monkeys combine to give you a truly unique Costa Rican experience.
    We are in the center and so close to the beach but sandwiched in a green area. There are lots of mango and coconut trees and sometimes wildlife like monkeys, iguanas ect. can been seen.
  • Perfect location, perfect host, clean appartment. I can not say enough great things about my stay with Sarah. Book this apartment and you will not be disappointed. Walk to anywhere in Samara village!

    Ken2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah's casita de los monos is super beautiful, well located and fully corresponds to the descriptions, we really liked it there :-)

    Christiane2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Small wooden chalet, modern, clean with all amenities except hot water, no heat needed. 30 seconds walk from the sea. The hosts are wonderful. Pura Vida

    Patrick2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Exactly as advertised. Great location, walking distance to everything you could possibly need and most importantly, 100m to the beach. Sarah and family were very welcoming and offered suggestions and recommendations. The space was exceptionally clean, especially for an ‘open air’ space. The fans kept us cool at night but certainly if you cannot live without a/c then this may not be for you. Overall ,thoughtful amenities and hospitality, for a relaxed and low maintenance holiday.

    Kayla2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Sarah and her family made us welcome and were there if we needed them but we're never intrusive. We loved Samara and this little studio made our stay even better. The studio had everything you need and was so clean.

    Sarah2019-12-27T00:00:00Z
  • Casita de los Monos is a sweet, little spot from which to explore Samara. You can park your car nearby, and walk all over town. The kitchen is tiny but well equipped with everything you will need to make simple meals if you wish to. During your stay, you will see and hear howler monkeys in the many trees surrounding the cottage, and you will be made very welcome by your host, Sarah, and her family.

    Dion2019-12-20T00:00:00Z
  • Very cozy place and a perfect location next to the beach! We had a very good stay in this little house. Recommendable!

    Gemma2019-12-14T00:00:00Z
  • One of our best stays throughout our time in Costa Rica. A unique and beautiful home, what felt like staying in a tree house. At night you were lulled to sleep by the sound of the sea and in the morning it felt as though you were waking up in the canopy’s of the trees, and even sometimes the gentle sounds of the Howler monkeys could be heard. Sarah and her family were extremely kind and warm, and made you feel instantly welcome. Samara has a the calm and friendly ora, where everyone greets you with a hola. I would recommend Sarah’s home to anybody looking for something special.

    This apartment is located in "Matapalo", not even 100 meters from the beach. You will easily reach Samara center in 5 minutes, walking on the white sand :) . It's perfect for couples who are looking for a simple, nice and clean apartment close from all the activities that Samara can offer, walking distance to everything. Come and enjoy the Pura Vida way of life.
  • Great place. Loved our stay

    Angela2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is located in a small village 10 min walk from Samara. It is well equipped with air conditioning, kitchen and a spacious bathroom. There is also a small garden to dry your bathing clothes. Just around the corner there is a small supermarket with everything you need for everyday life and nearby you can buy delicious fish. The beach is only a few meters away and there are only few tourists. A real place to calmed down, to enjoy life and to be close to Costa Rica. The communication was wonderful and we could ask questions at any time. Thank you for the wonderful time and we would love to come back again!

    Michaela2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • Easy access to the beach and prefect distance from the town of Samara. ~10 min walk in the beach to town but none of the traffic or noise. Very large living space as well with fully stocked kitchen

    Zach2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • Quiet and clean space near the beach of Sámara. 100% recommended

    Mariana2020-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • Great value! We found ourselves cooking a lot with local produce that was outstanding! This rental is also very secure, we felt safe the entire stay. Arnaud and Valeria from Manage my Property were our hosts and were a pleasure to deal with. Only 15 or 20 minutes beach walk to downtown Samara. Highly reccomend .

    Evan2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This sweet apartment was perfect for us. The location was wonderful for coffee on the beach at sunrise and wine at sunset. We explored in all directions and saw white-faced monkeys (Capuchin), howler monkeys, a coati, iguanas and birds of all types. If you don’t mind a drive on a dirt road there is a fabulous restaurant called Donde Cambute in Isilita. As an added bonus the owner had air conditioning installed while we were there. We really enjoyed visiting with the owner and hope to return next year.

    Phyllis2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Nice neighborhood about 20 min. beach walk to downtown area. Store close by as is main beach, Local taxis from downtown 1000 colones. Good value considering Samara inflated prices.

    Glen2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • The place was great. It was clean, safe and had all the basic utilities. It was the perfect distance away from town to not be in the the middle of it, but walking distance if you wanted too. The house is about 15 min to town walking on the beach, a few blocks from a store, fish market and the beach. A few things that could be clearer in the posting. The house is a few blocks from the beach, while the house is independent, it is in a duplex so you have Neighboors with whom you share the entrance and yard, and internet can be weak if you are trying to use it for work or entertainment. Hosts were responsive and friendly.
