Samara house description
One of the great things about Casa Verano is the homes proximity to the beach and EASY access to EVERYTHING in the great little town of Samara!!
Casa Verano is a LEVEL WALKING DISTANCE by sidewalk, to the beach, restaurants, shops, grocery, bakery, bus stop, internet cafe, bank, real estate offices, scooter rentals, etc., YOU DONT NEED TO RENT A CAR, just bring your flip flops! The home is situated on a QUIET street with no commercial buildings near by....and is just off the beaten path with a vacant jungle NEXT DOOR!!!
Imagine waking up in the morning to the sound of howler monkeys and then walking to a German bakery for a hot cup of coffee and freshly made pastries, and then continuing on for a morning stroll on the beach!!
There are at least 10 great places to eat within 1/4 mile from the house!! Why go to Costa Rica and then have to drive everywhere??
Casa Verano is also a GREAT HOUSE, built in November of 2005 by Ronny Briceno(local builder who built the famous Samara Treehouses). This house is solidly built with attention to details... We have tons of pictures of the beach and home if you want to see more! Including some SATELLITE images of the homes proximity to the beach!!!
The house features a swimming pool, internet, vaulted teak wood ceilings in every room, air-conditioning in all bedrooms, covered front porch, outdoor bathroom and shower by the pool, electronic front gate, utility sink, all ceramic tile, full kitchen, washing machine, clothes line, cable TV, ceiling fans in every room, side-by-side refrigerator w/ice cube maker, water pressure system and water storage tank to gaurantee water supply, hot water heater and much more...
The house sits next to a vacant jungle which we have seen all sorts of wildlife including a whole clan of howler monkeys, all types of beautiful native birds, iguanas, wandering bulls, and horses!! We saw more monkeys here than on a nature hike in Nosara!!!
Sorry, this is a non-smoking house...

We stayed at this lovely house in April 2013 and we just loved it. It is located close to town and the beach. Everything is in walking distance. The kitchen was equipped with everything you need. It was nice to relax by the pool. Unfortunately we only stayed 3 nights. I would have loved to stay there a week or longer. I hope to come back soon.

A jewel in the sun!

My wife and I stayed at Casa Verano from 3-10 Feb 2013 and we had a fabulous vacation. As other reviewers have commented, Casa Verano is in a perfect location in Samara; walking distance to the beach, restaurants and grocery stores. We did not have a car for our stay, and we truly did not need it. Laura, the property manager for the villa, arranged a private shuttle for us from the Liberia airport and it was an easy drive (1.75 hours) on the paved road. She greeted us when we arrived at Casa Verano. Keith and Susan, the property owners from Montreal, were very accommodating and pleasantly answered all of our questions. Our trip to Costa Rica also included some dental work for my wife in San Jose, and when the dentists at the Nova Dental Clinic adjusted her appointment schedule early in the new year, there was no problem changing our arrival date by a day. Samara is a perfect holiday location for anyone looking for a non-resort experience. Costa Rican beaches are known for their rip tides, but these are minimal (if non-existent) at Samara. The waves are not as large as perhaps at other beaches in the area, but they were ideal for me to give surfing a try; I had three lessons from C&C Surf School and it was a real blast. It was hot during our week in Samara and the pool at Casa Verano was very refreshing after a day at the beach. The shower beside the pool was very convenient. There are some very good restaurants in Samara (check out the binder in the villa). We also cooked some of our own meals and the kitchen had everything we needed. There is a patio table in the yard beside the pool, and from that vantage point we occasionally had a glance at the Iguanas who would peak out from the eaves trough or walk along the concrete wall. As my wife and I approach full retirement we are looking for a place to hibernate from Ottawa winters. Casa Verano is a true jewel in the Samara sun, and we can't wait for our next opportunity to visit!

We pass a nice week at Samara in Casa Verano. This house is ideal for family. We were six adults and a 2 years child. The house is near the beach (five minutes) and others commodities: restaurants, grocery, cafe, fresh fish and fruits....Many activities were offered on site: horseback riding, trip to see the dolphins, kayak... Inconvenient: no bed for the child...he sleep on a part of living room couch. We pass a marvelous week and the car stay in front of the house all during the week!

Exceeded my expectations!

The pictures and write-up do not do this property justice. This a very nice home on a very nice street in Samara. This property is so close to everything (it REALLY is walking distance to the beach!!) and is next to a jungle so you still feel like you are away from it all. But first I want to let everyone know what amazing hosts Keith and Susan are. They were so friendly on emails I felt like I knew them and were very responsive and informative. When I had a health situation that caused my trip to be postponed, they bent over backwards and were incredibly accommodating to help me reschedule with no penalties. They went above and beyond what anyone could expect from people renting a vacation property. I can not begin to express my thanks to them. The house manager Laura was very accommodating and met us at the house later than initially expected. She provided some good information about the town and when we had a situation later she quickly responded. The house, pool and grounds are very clean and well maintained and everything you could need is provided. They had great binders to inform us about things about the house and the town. The master bedroom and bathroom are very large and welcoming. The two smaller rooms are great too and closet space is awesome. The ACs worked great and we only used them when it was time to sleep. It took just a few minutes to cool down the room. The hot water was AWESOME!! The pool is so refreshing and just the right amount of shade. Having a bathroom and shower outside by the pool was a bonus!!! I felt so secure with all the locks and gates and they even had a guard at the end of the street in the evening. The whole town gives you a feeling of warmth and welcoming but as a mom traveling with two young girls it was so nice to feel so safe and at home for a week in this beautiful casa. I feel like I can go on and on... but I just hope I can stay here again soon and write another review!!!

Tucked away on a little side street close to Samara town, Casa Verano was a wonderful house with lush gardens and a nice pool for the kids to play in after a long morning at the beach. Each morning howler monkeys strolled through the treetops with their signature hoots and howls. Kitchen has all the ameneties and AC in rooms made for comfortable evenings. I very much recommend Casa Verano for couples and families. Be sure to try Wing Nuts Canopy Tour if staying in Samara. It was awesome for the kids. We'll be back!

Casa Verano is an excellent choice for confort, privacy and location. The price was well worth the accomodation. We stayed 12 nights, six of us, my wife, daughter, and three grandchildren. I will return to Casa Verano in the future and it is highly recommended especially for families. The owner is a delight to work with. Casa Verano and Samara was close enough to Nicoya so that we could have dental work done. The teenage girls had all of their wisdom teeth extracted and my daughter had crown work done in Nicoya. Excellent work which was confirmed by American dentists. ciao pura vida
