"We just got back from a wonderful stay at this condo. We have a lot of great things to say about it:
- the view is spectacular
- the ocean and nature noises that you can hear from the balcony are wonderful
- the condo is surrounded by trees and greenery that is home to howler monkeys and a lot of other wildlife that is so amazing to watch
- the location is great. It is very close to the beach and town but not so close that you hear the bars (which can be loud) at night
-it is great to have a covered parking stall right in front of the condo
-the pool is great and not crowded
-the kitchen is well stocked
- the air conditioning, fans and curtains do a great job of keeping the place cool
- the town that it is located it, Samara, is fantastic!
We do have one negative thing to say about this condo. The drains really smell bad, especially the smell coming from the shower in the master bathroom. The property manager sent one of the building's handyman in to see if he could help, but he just told us to open the window and then dumped some blue stuff in the drain. The smell was back within a day. My husband, who is a tradesman, says that most likely the plumbing was not done properly allowing a methane/sewage smell into the suite. Other than that our stay at the condo was awesome!"

"I have rented this house for extended times (approximately 5 months total) during 3 different trips since 2013. It sits in a comfortable small neighborhood of foreign nationals and with native Costa Rican houses mixed in on the outskirts of the neighborhood. Its location is a 20 minute walk to an undeveloped part of Playa Samara or a 5 minute drive to Samara's restaurants and shops. The property location also allows for a 10 minute drive to the beautiful undeveloped Playa Carrillo. It comes as advertised and is ideal for simple vacationing at an affordable price.
A great feature of the house is the elevated patio to enjoy simple entertaining , watching wild life in the yard or enjoying the view. It is very interesting watching the living habits of the multiple bird species and iguanas in the yard. Bring your binoculars! Occasionally you can view howler monkeys and you certainly hear them during multiple parts of the days. The favorite parts of staying here occur out on the patio watching wildlife , enjoying early morning breakfast and the evening to view the night sky or watch storms.
I would recommend this house to anyone that is looking for a reasonably priced , comfortable , fully equipped rental. In my 3 years coming here it is my first choice in the area when looking for an affordable , air conditioned house with a pool. The owners, Peter and Maggie, have been very accommodating and responsive. They provide local property management if you require immediate assistance."

"We arrived at Montelaguna Residence on February 1st, 2015 and departed March 31st.
This condo unit is one of the most beautifully appointed, well-equipped condos that we have ever had the good fortune to stay in. There is every available kitchen utensil, bath towels or any other amenity you can imagine. The beds are comfortable and the layout of this condo is superb. Because of the beautiful long balcony accessed by the master bedroom, living room and dining room sliding doors, made the use of the air continuing unnecessary. Beautiful stainless steel appliances including an ice-maker water maker fridge which we found quite useful.
Great supply of reading material, movies to watch and cd's to play.
All in all, with the addition of the huge private pool and with the luxury of choosing Samara Beach or Carillo beach which are only a stones throw away, this property was pure bliss.
And for the above reasons, that's why we have already booked this unit for next year!"

"Stayed here with my family including two young nephews and we all were very pleased with Casa Pastor! Thank you Alex and Carol for sharing your piece of paradise! We especially love the howler moneys when they were close by."
