Samara condo description

Enjoy spectacular views from this luxurious condominium located 1.5 blocks to the beach and a short walk to town; high speed wireless Internet, pool, A/C, fully equipped kitchen, on-site secure covered parking, on-site concierge and caretaker and much more!

Absorb the refreshing ocean breezes from your own private balcony, cool off in the pool, or go for a stroll on the beach but don't miss the adorable Congo Monkeys playing in the trees at eye level from 'The Congo Lounge', the rooftop terrace.

Alta Vista Condominiums has no match in Samara or the surrounding beaches. When you want to be close to town and next to the ocean, in a stylish ocean view condo with all the comforts of home and more, look no further.

Recipient of Trip Adviser's prestigious ' Five Star Award of Excellence', Samara still has no match, even five years after we opened for business. Randall, the caretaker and concierge, has been with the Alta Vista Team for 4+ years and continues to receive glowing reviews. Rates have remained the same going back to 2009 despite heavy investments in new furniture, decoration, and relentless upkeep. A common refrain from our guests is, 'of all the places we've stayed in Costa Rica, yours is the only that looks as good or better in person as it does online.' I'm proud to present a property and a vacation experience to the stylish discerning independent traveler who shuns packaged trips but won't settle for shared bathrooms or the tourist traps promoted by false advertising.

We have at least ten different guests/families who have visited us every year after their first stay. They go on to tell their friends who then also become repeat guests. They love the home-like feeling the condo has. Randall is almost always at the building as is Catherine our lovely administrator. Zorro is an adorable constant companion!

Make your reservation at Alta Vista today and join the ranks of our many high-end repeat guests!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2006

                          About the owner: I bought the land in 2006, the same year I moved to Playa Samara. We broke ground fall of 2007 and wrapped up construction December 2008. That's right, I planned and built Alta Vista Condominiums overseeing every detail to the way I would like it as if I were on vacation. I've traveled to many beaches being a surfer and waterman and Playa Samara took the prize for being the friendliest, cleanest, most tico beach in Costa Rica. I built multiple condos with the idea that I'd live in one and rent the other two for my income.

                          Why the Owner Chose Samara:
                          Location, location, location. I'm located on the west (north) end of the bay of Playa Samara, in the small village called Cangrejal. It's still Samara Beach, it's just on the edge of the bay which means it's quiet. My building backs up to the forest and their are no neighbors to three sides of me. The only inhabitants are the incredible amount of different species - from howler monkeys, to tucans and iguanas, and everything inbetween, get ready for a natural paradise!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          Unbeatable views of the beach and ocean yet on the dead-end street that leads to the beach just 1.5 blocks away. Some other rental properties in Samara have great views, but you have to drive or make an unpleasant walk to the beach. Some places in Samara are close to the beach but have no view and are stagnant, with no beach breezes. Because of my openness to the ocean the breezes constantly reach the building keeping mosquitoes to a minimum and refreshing to a maximum! Also, I've provided a unique benefit by providing luxury in the middle of a typical Costa Rican beach. I love surfing and exploring town but it's hot and full of many adventures! Me and my guests (and you too) will love coming home to your safe, secure, air conditioned condo with a full white-line kitchen, hot water, high speed internet, and toilet paper you can flush!
