"We have just returned from Casa Pericos to NY and all I keep thinking about is "when can I return".
Myself and my four adult children stayed for eight nights. It was just the perfect accommodation for us all to have our own rooms and a wonderful deck to relax on in the noon day heat, and to watch the spectacular sunsets. It was very clean and very comfortable. Very true to description.
David, the owner was easy to communicate with; timely in responses and very helpful with advanced information which made our trip in a rented car from Liberia International Airport effortless.
Nick, the property manager, who met us at the house was a delight in all ways. A generous, helpful, pleasant person who left us alone to our holiday but was easily accessible if needed. In fact, my son left his passport behind and Nick took care of it without fuss and without stress.
Most mornings were spent taking the walk to the beach (5mins), swimming and walking the quiet crescent. A lovely way to start the day. In the afternoon it was rest in the warm, hot sun. Listening to the howlers, spotting the iguanas, and marveling at the diversity of plants and trees; animals and birds.
Later afternoon was back to the beach, watching the sunset (around 5.30pm) and more swimming.
All the restaurants we ate at were wonderful. All previously recommended by David in the packet he sent prior to our arrival. Shopping in town was simple and we were able to make delicious fresh meals on the barbecue on the deck. The kitchen was well stocked and easy to manage.
We went on a hike with Alvaro at Werner Sauter Biological Preserve which should not be missed. It was informative and fun and it seems that Alvaro himself is well known for his warmth and kindness within the town and on trip advisor. He lived up to his reputation. We sampled the foods native to the forrest and he even convinced one of us to try termite.
We took a boat trip out with Samara Adventures and were delighted to see awe inspiring sightings of humback whales and beautiful fish snorkeling in the reef. Again, the staff were such a pleasure to spend time with.
Leaving Playa Carillio which is very tranquil, to go to Samara was also fun. It was more lively with bars and restaurants on the beach and with many places to shop, internet cafes, and lots of different adventure pursuits to choose from.
All in all, I would struggle to find any negative thing to say. It was perfect"

"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!"

"All the previous reviews are bang on, you wont be disappointed. The grounds and house have everything you need. Kate and Will have thought of everything and every comfort is available. The only downside is you end up spending less time at the beach because the is no reason to leave! Do yourself a favour and rent Casa Vista Del Mar."

"Our family of four spent 5 weeks (April 2015) at Casa Limon Dulce and our time could not have been better - we truly had an amazing time and have built family memories that we will have for a lifetime! I remember when I first wrote to Rich and asked him if he would accept a rental with two kids under 3. He of course said yes, but that the house might not be totally kid friendly. I can now say that I completely disagree - I think it is the perfect house for young kids!
A few reasons why -- the underwater bench in the back of the pool was great for a our toddler, who could spend hours practicing his swimming and playing with his toys; the open concept indoor/outdoor living room enabled us to always have an eye on the kids and for our kids to easily be able to get shade while not really coming inside; the fenced in front yard allowed our son to 'explore' while we weren't worried about the road; the solid structure of the home and ceiling fans meant that our kids got great sleeps and weren't woken by each other; and of course, the internet radio and surround sound made for excellent dance parties in the living room (sorry Gerardo for all the '80s music! :)) I could go on, but in our view it was perfect, and the house really has absolutely everything you could want or need.
Samara was also the perfect town for us, and again perfect for kids - the water of Playa Samara is fairly calm and warm, you can get everything you need in town, and all the restaurants could not be more welcoming to families. We also explored beaches up and down the coast, and loved how different each beach was and definitely the adventure to find many of them - Camaronal, Barrigona, Guiones, Islita, Carrillo.
Lastly, I wanted to say that Gerardo - the onsite caretaker and property manager - was fantastic, made sure we had everything we needed and was excellent with our son (he is still talking about him!). Jenny and Stacy were absolutely wonderful and did a fantastic job making the house look amazing -- it was so nice seeing their smiling faces at the house every morning! And Rich was a great person to rent from - our emails made me feel comfortable from the beginning and he was very responsive to any question I had. Thank you!
I will stop there but say that we certainly need to find a way to take a month off work every year and we hope to be back to Samara and Casa Limon Dulce very soon!"
