A little slice of Heaven
"This was a wonderful property. Carlos met us in Quepos and took us to the property, which was a real blessing. The property was well maintained and very nice. The pool was a wonderful place to hang out and enjoy the sights and sounds of the rain forest. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. The housekeeping mid week, was a pleasant surprise. We had zero problems, and thoroughly loved our experience."

"We stayed for a couple nights in November, 2015. Marc's instructions on how to get to the property and all the things to see and do were the best we've ever received from a Home Away rental. The condo was clean and spacious enough for the two of us, and it was the only place that had air conditioning during our week-long stay in Costa Rica.
The pictures in the description can't capture the panoramic view from the balcony. Marc's place is about 375 feet above the sea level (as are most of the condos there), so you get a view of the Pacific that you can't get from the beach. We spent most of our non-tourist time out on the balcony, even well after sunset.
There is a mini-market next door which has just about everything you need. The prices are very reasonable, especially for a tourist area. There are many places to eat nearby within 10 minutes walking distance, although like in most of Costa Rica, you're sometimes walking on the road and sometimes in what serves as a sidewalk/shoulder. We felt completely safe during our stay and the staff at the units was very helpful in answering our questions. If you like to walk with the monkeys, the Manuel Antonio National Park is a 5-minute drive from Marc's condo.
Despite the fact that there is no official public parking near/on the beach, we drove down there because we had seen others do so (I calculate the road at an average of 8% grade, so walking may be difficult for some (you should have a 4-wheel drive in all of Costa Rica)). We parked under a tree and there were about 10 others who did the same. While not technically a private beach, it is definitely one of the quietest we've experienced. The volcanic boulders and mini-islands are fun to investigate during low tide and provide spectacular wave crashes during mid- and high tides. Abundant life everywhere on the beach and the road leading to it.
Overall, a very pleasant and relaxing experience and we would stay here again."

"We had a wonderful time staying at this little apartment. The owners are extremely helpful and eager to offer suggestions. They have made our stay a wonderful experience. We only had two full days in the area but we enjoyed every minute of it. The flowers and wildlife in the garden are amazing, so were our excursions in the area to zipline and visit Manuel Antonio National Park. We would love to come back some day..."

"Great family vacation around fathers 85th birthday. Ten of us were easily accommodated in this spacious beautifully designed home. We arranged for a cook to prepare breakfast and dinner. Hiro the chef received high marks from all of us including my Cordon Blue Paris trained sister and her husband who for over ten years owned a haute cuisine French restaurant on the Monterey Peninsula. Ricky the property manager was always there to provide tour, restaurant and general recommendations. The house was cleaned top to bottom everyday and kept in immaculate condition. I would highly recommend Casa Samba to anyone traveling to Manuel Antonio."
