  • Excellent condo

    "My husband, two sons (18, 20) and I enjoyed a week long stay at this condo between Christmas and New Years. It was clean, comfortable, well equipped and conveniently located a short walk from the beach. The property was secure and the other residents were friendly. Corby was very welcoming and helpful with recommendations for activities. One day as we sat by the pool a howler monkey came down from the trees and we got a really good look at it. Playa Hermosa is a nice beach and not too busy. We highly recommend this condo as a perfect location from which to enjoy all the activities in this part of Costa Rica."

  • Great condo overlooking beautiful beach and town!

    "Joe and Mark, Thank you so much for accommodating us during our stay at your condo! We had an absolutely wonderful time in Samara, and would recommend that anyone visit this hidden gem in Costa Rica. When we decided to vacation in Costa Rica, we were hoping to find an area where we could relax by the ocean and also experience Costa Rican culture. Samara was perfect. Despite the idyllic beauty of the town and beach, Samara has not been overrun by the tourist industry that has captured many other coastal regions. Rather, it maintains the quaint charm of a small beach village. While we enjoyed several great meals at the various restaurants along the beach and throughout the town, the beach was easily the highlight of our trip to Samara. The water was so warm and pleasant, and the waves were large enough to surf but certainly not overbearing. We also rented an ocean kayak and paddled out to the island that can be seen in the photos. From there, we saw an incredible view of the Rich Coast of the country. Indeed, Samara is a special place. Your condo was the perfect accommodation for our trip to Samara. Tucked up on a hill overlooking the beach, we had unbelievable views of ocean and the short, dramatic, entertaining lightning storms in the early evenings. Also, as it was such a short walk to the beach (5 minutes) and town (under 10 minutes), the condo really is in an ideal location. The condo itself was everything we could have asked for. All rooms were very clean, the bed and furniture were comfortable, and there were plenty of places to sit and take in the vista through the panoramic windows. All utilities (including the coffee maker) worked fine, and there was plenty of storage space for food, clothing, and other items. Also, we were pleasantly surprised to find the vast, and impressively up-to-date, DVD collection! We were truly sad to leave Samara, and we intend to return. When we do, we would love to use your condo again. While the condo was perfect for our needs, what made our experience better was the service. Both of you (Joe and Mark) could not have been more helpful and pleasant while we planned our stay. Also, the property manager and staff at the condominium property were very attentive, kind, and accommodating. For anyone travelling to Guanacaste, I would highly recommend that they consider Samara as a destination and that they stay in your condo. I am sure that they will not be disappointed. Gracias por todo, y pura vida!"

  • Awesome family vacation at Reserva Conchal

    "Our family of 5 (including 3 pre-teens) spent a fun and relaxing week thanks to our stay in this property. We thoroughly enjoyed our new home away from home and its deluxe amenities. We've stayed in many rental condos over the years, and this one is at the top of the list for decor, view, and overall comfort. My favorite perch was in the upstairs master bedroom, enjoying the elevated ocean view. I am picky about mattresses, and am pleased to report that the mattresses in this condo are top quality and very comfortable. We did not have a rental car during our stay, but were able to get around the area reasonably well with the on-property shuttles and occasional taxis. One huge bonus with renting this property is the inclusion of the services of a private concierge. I didn't realize how valuable this would be until I got there. Melissa arranged some key transportation, including a very early morning airport transfer, and several dinner reservations. She patiently answered a lot of questions. We had some hit-and-miss interactions with getting help from the Reserva Conchal office staff, but Melissa came through 100 percent, and I'm thankful for her assistance. We hope we can return to this lovely home soon!"

  • Wonderful place and best hosts

    "I recently stayed at the Vila El Sueno de Ocotal, and enjoyed Calin and Silvia's hospitality. Calin offered me a very good price and he did his best to accomodate me there. He also helped me to find a place to stay for the days that he had no availability at his vila, and he also arranged me a transport to, and from the airport. As I did not rent a car, Calin offered to take me to Playas Del Coco to do shoppings, and he also offered me transport to his vila. This vila is very nice, located in an amazing place, with incredible views on the ocean, very nice and very well maintained, nice garden, flowers and plants, wonderful swimming pool, and everything is very clean. It is also very closed to the beautiful Ocotal Beach. I was impressed by Calin and Silvia's hospitality, and I consider them the best hosts I've ever seen. They invited me to breakfast, dinner and supper, and everything was perfect, especially the Thai cuisine. Also Silvia cooked the best pankaces. I was feeling like in family. I would definitely go back, and I recommend this vila to anyone wanting to spend nice and quiet vacations, and to experience the Costa Rica Pura Vida. Calin, Silvia, I already miss you and Costa Rica, but I will be back soon!!!"
