Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: I am originally from South Carolina, USA. After graduating from College of Charleston I took a few years off to travel and live abroad. During that time I fell in love with the traveler lifestyle, meeting new people and sharing different experiences. I knew immediately I needed to work out a way to make a living and continue to see more of the world.

Why the Owner Chose Sámara, Costa Rica:
I first visited Costa Rica with my parents, helping them look for a retirement vacation home. We all fell in love with Samara right away. When we didn't find a house the first trip we decided to travel the entire Pacific Coast of Costa Rica looking for a town/area we liked as much as Samara. While there are other amazing places in Costa Rica, for us Samara was the only option. On our third meeting with a realtor in town, my parents found their retirement home, and I found Bambula. It is a beautiful property, inside and out, and I knew it would be the perfect place for me to host all of my travelling friends and friends I haven't met yet.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Bambula Samara offers versatility as a couple can rent only part of the house, or it can accommodate up to 10 for family and friends. Guests here feel very comfortable and safe, enjoy lots of space, and have all the amenities of a modern home with a very Costa Rican feel enhanced by the woodwork in the house. The original owner built the home with many unique design features that will stand out in your memories. Whether you are playing cards on the porch, cooking in the kitchen with your family, swinging in a hammock by the pool, or listening to the howler monkeys from your bedroom, Bambula is your home away from home.
