Property description

Within the condominium compound there is a swimming pool, covered Rancho with tables and chairs and a charcoal BBQ. It's a great space to relax while reading a book or to enjoy a cocktail while watching the Howler monkeys play in the trees across the road. The grounds are beautifully maintained and are staffed with 24 hour security for your added comfort.

The condo has a fully equipped kitchen, a weekly cleaning service so you can enjoy your time away from home. My unit has it's own internet access so you won't have to compete for speed with the other condo units and can surf the web right from your own balcony while taking in the lovely ocean view.

Samara is known as the safest swim beach in Costa Rica. It's perfect for beachcombers, families and the beginner surfer! This quiet traditional beach town has many restaurants, shops, bars and tours. On the beach you can rent surfboards, kayaks to paddle to the island, stand up paddle boards, horseback riding, snorkeling, diving, whale and dolphin tours and deep sea fishing. There is also 4-wheel ATV rentals/tours zip lining, gyro-copter tours, hiking and and waterfalls.


Keywords: Situated only 300 yards from the beach via road access, a half a mile to downtown and a grocery store around the corner this is the perfect location with or without a car!

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2006

About: This cozy condo is my home, therefore, I feel that I can offer you a very comfortable place to stay while visiting Samara and you should find everything you will need while here. I fell in love with Samara on my first visit in 2004 and after my second visit decided to make this my home! I hope that you will love it as much as I.

Why Samara:
I love Samara because it is still a quiet beach town with a nice mix of the local Tico's and us Gringo's. You feel as though you are experiencing Costa Rica, not a high-rise, over developed North American beach community!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
From my balcony I have seen Howler Monkeys (no worries, they stay in the trees across the road!), several species of birds, iguanas, geckos and much more! There is a turtle nesting beach nearby and the Ara Project in Punta Islita is reintroducing Scarlet and Blue macaws back into the wild! There is a fully accredited Spanish Language school in town offering weekly classes if you want to improve your Spanish, as well as a Massage School that offers discounted massages, and a TEFL School.
