Samara condo description

Pictures can’t describe the amazing ocean and jungle views from this beautiful 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom 3rd floor condominium. This complex includes 24 hr security with covered/gated parking and an infinity pool with a waterfall and ocean views.

It is ideally located only a few steps from the beach. Playa Samara (and nearby Playa Carillo) is known by many to be the most beautiful beach in Costa Rica. The Lonely Planet describes it as “One of the safest and prettiest beaches in the country…” It’s crescent shaped bay – protected by a large coral reef – is a swimmers paradise and ideal for searching for that perfect shell. Playa Samara is especially perfect for young swimmers and those wanting to learn to surf.

Also within a short walk is the quaint town of Samara - where you’ll find everything you need. Within Samara, you’ll find a variety of excellent restaurants and shops, coffee shops, grocery stores, internet cafes, yoga/surf shops and much, much more.

This condo is fully equipped to ensure you have everything you need to fully enjoy your stay. High quality furnishings include leather sofa/loveseat, hand crafted Costa Rican solid wood furniture, kitchen island so you can prepare meals while overlooking the ocean, top quality Simmon’s Beautyrest mattresses (King bed in master and 2 double beds in guest bedroom) and plenty of closet space. Other amenities include A/C and ceiling fans in both bedrooms and living area, Satelite TV, internet, telephone, DVD (with a large DVD library), CD player, games, boogie boards for body surfing, books, binoculars and many other extras!

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About: We are a family of 4 from Calgary, Alberta, Canada. Cori owns/operates a private yoga studio and often brings clients/small groups to Samara where she hosts amazing yoga retreats. My name is Chris and was a former minor pro hockey player who now works in oil/gas accounting in Calgary. Our children both play hockey and soccer and enjoy travelling to Samara so that they can surf, go beachcoming and play at the pool.

                  Why Samara:
                  The main reason we bought this property was clearly for the ocean view as well as for the quick access to the beach and town. We travelled to several other countries in search of a vacation home and quickly fell in love with Costa Rica. After spending two vacations visiting many beach towns down the pacific coast we realized that Samara was by far our favorite place to be. It's a quaint surf town with all the necessary amenities and great restaurants we were looking for, and the reef protected waters make swimming very safe for our young family. And as we've all discovered, it's a perfect beach to learn to surf!
