About Robert Davis

We have traveled the world and decided on Samara Costa Rica! When we say this is the best beach view we mean it. We love to travel and experience cultures. Costa Rica is a jewel to experience and its people are friendly and easy to interact. We have three grown daughters and one son in law. We have traveled throughout 49 of 50 states (we are still missing North Dakota), Canada, Mexico, South and Central America, Australia, Tahiti and Europe. We are still trying to cross off the Pyramids and Great Wall off our bucket list. We are both still working (ugh) and want to eventually spend 3-6 months a year in Samara. Feel free to call us if you need any information about Costa Rica or any other travel destination!

Robert Davis purchased this condo in 2011

Why Robert Davis chose Sámara

Samara is a wonderful swimming beach and the view is fabulous. We fell in love with the town and love coming to Samara. We just returned from our latest trip to Samara! The beach waters were wonderful and it was great to go back and relax on the beach at night while dining at Gusto's!

What makes this condo unique

While staying at our condo you can enjoy the beach, go snorkeling, diving, take tours into the rain forest, go on canopy tours, sports fishing and more. You can enjoy all Costa Rica has to offer from Samara!

Fantastic View and Well equipped Condo

  • 5 of 5

Samara is a beautiful Beach town with wonderful restaurants. We can honestly say that every place we ate was really good. The beach here is a great beach for surfing or just playing in the water due to the protective reef. Our son loved the pool and seeing monkeys! This condo is well equipped. The king bed is very comfortable in the Master. There is a closet with shelves and a dresser in the Master Bedroom. The both bathrooms have a cabinet to store your shampoo, etc. If you want a hair dryer you will need to bring your own, though. The second bedroom has two comfy twin beds. Both bedrooms have ceiling fans as well as the kitchen and living area. It is wonderful to open the windows and let the ocean breeze and sound of the surf into the condo. (there are screens). I wanted to also say that the only thing we smelled was the ocean breezes. The condo building is up above the beach. A short walk down to the beach or to town. You don't really have to rent a car here. If you do want to rent a car for a day or two to go out and about there is an Alamo Car Rental. Be sure to check out the Info Center at Lo Que Hay. Debbie told us to check in with them and we are glad we did! They know everything about the area and all over Costa Rica. You can also pick up a wrist band for discounts at some restaurants. We will be back!

Beautiful Samara

  • 4 of 5

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!

A Beautiful Condo, Stunning Views, and a Lovely Beach Town....What More Can You Ask For?!

  • 5 of 5

It was my first time in Costa Rica and I couldn't be happier with my choice!! Went down with a friend and we decided to stay at this condo. The owner of the place, Debbie, was excellent to work with and always got back to us promptly with any questions we had. As for the condo, itself...WOW. The first thing you'll notice is the amazing view! The floor to ceiling windows that overlook the Samara coast offer a stunning, picturesque view that is a delight to wake up to every morning. The condo itself has all the amenities you could ask for from cookware, to internet, to towels and pool floats.

The infinity pool was probably one of the best features of the condo! There weren't many other residents around during our stay and on most evenings, after a day on the beach and walking around town, we would have the pool to ourselves and just enjoy the sunset.

The condo is perfectly located about a 2 minute drive (10 min walk) outside of town and offers a nice isolated setting when you want to just come back and relax. As for the town of Samara, I feel its one of the best kept secrets of Costa Rica! The locals are really friendly and I could sit for HOURS on the beach by Gusto's restaurant while enjoying a delicious Desayuno Completo (a must have!) every morning.

Overall it was AN AMAZING STAY!!! And this was largely in part to our choice of staying at this condo! Will definitely be back again!!!

Lovely stay in close, yet JUST perfectly outside of the main hub.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed in this lovely condo for a week. We have 3 small boys (5, 3, and 1). This was actually the second rental we had for our 2 week stay in Samara. The first was in a house 300 meters from the beach.....the 2nd was this condo. Debbie's property managers, Colleen & Nick, actually dropped off a play yard to us at the 1st rental so we could use it there, too. They then PICKED US, the boys, all our LUGGAGE, & groceries up from the first rental to the condo. Talk about service! All of the cab drivers were out of town for a local's funeral (very sad occasion). So, instead of making us walk with all of our traveling baggage, they picked us up in their car & delivered us door to door.......even helping us in with kids & cargo (much appreciated). The condo is VERY well appointed. Debbie, relying on their property managers to complete the task, got curtains hung up that block some of the hot, hot sun & yet don't spoil the view at all for they are somewhat shear. The kitchen had everything we needed.....could have used some more tupperware.....but luckily we brought some; so it wasn't an issue. There were TONS of linens & towels........even BEACH towels, which many places during our 7 week CR vacation did not offer. The bathroom drains did drain slowly, but this was not a major problem. When traveling to Costa Rica, travelers must remember that they are not in the United States. Seriously. Everything was in fine order. The AC was welcomed after long hot days at the beach. Debbie recommended Gustos on the Beach for dining............we went there to let the kids play in the surf while we ordered sangrias and piattinis to munch on. Highly recommended! The only downfall of the condo was the construction during our time there. It is a new condo and many of the units are being fitted and customized. We did have to put up with some construction noise while swimming in the pool......however, most of our time was spent on the beach and we couldn't hear the noise inside the condo. The 24 hour security guard made us feel very safe (though, I never felt unsafe in Samara or anywhere in CR, except for a few places on the Caribbean side. The guards quickly became familiar with our comings and goings and assisted us with the gates and whatnot very promptly. Really, if you are looking for a place in Samara, with a breathtaking view, all the amenities you could possibly need, for the right price. This is the perfect place. Thx Debbie!!

Beautiful Condo with Amazing Views

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went to Costa Rica for our first time in December. This condo was perfect for us! We woke up every morning to unreal views from not only the living area/kitchen, but our bedroom, and would go to sleep with the most amazing sunsets. Not only that, but we were able to walk everywhere. The town, beach, restaurants and everything were all right there. If you wanted to venture to another town they were all very close. Everyone was so nice and the people at the condo were there to help us if we needed anything at all. Next time we go back we WILL be staying at this condo. I give it an excellent review.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review! I am so happy you had a good time and enjoyed the condo and Samara. We just came back and are adding things to the condo each time we go down. I have updated our listing with all of the new items. The beach was great this time of year and I really think that more people should go during the green season. All of the travel info promotes the dry seasons. We had almost no rain and when it rains it is late in the day. It was beautiful and this time we traveled to several of the surrounding waterfalls. The waterfalls were gorgeous and it was so much fun to venture off the somewhat beaten path to discover them. I hope you guys can come back soon! Pura Vida!

Gorgeous view

  • 2 of 5

This condo has an incredible view of beautiful Samara beach. The infinity pool is very nice and a good place to share happy hour with other guests.

However, we found the condo to be poorly appointed. There were no window coverings to block the sun, and we had to find a way to hang up bed sheets which blocked the view. The kitchen was very frustrating with poor lighting and missing several basic items, like hot pads and dish towels. Neither shower drained well or completely, leaving an odor in the bathrooms.

Owner's Response: Our condo faces the Pacific Ocean to the West which affords beautiful sunsets. Our condo is exactly as you see it in the photos. There is approx 35 feet of windows that face the ocean making the view spectacular! There is a sliding door plus one window on each wall of windows that open approx 5 foot by 6 foot each that allows for ocean breezes and the sound of the surf. Living/dining and kitchen face the ocean without obstruction of walls. Many overhead lights for the night and 2 oversized ac units. Window coverings would hinder the view and block the breeze. However, we are in the process of finding an option that will please the sun lovers and those whose experience with the Costa Rican Summer Sun is too bright. We have a management team in Samara that manages the condo. The condo is cleaned and inspected between guests. If there is an issue with a maintenance item, linens, a burnt out bulb, etc they are a phone call away and can be there in just a few minutes. The bulb has been replaced and the manager has been notified to ensure there are enough linens available to guests. As to the drains, these will be inspected. This condo is new and this is the first season for rentals. We appreciate feedback because it allows us to enhance our condo and make your experience in Costa Rica Pura Vida! If you have any questions please call or email...thanks
