About Martina Abrey-MacKay

We are from Alberta, Canada where my husband teaches high school and I am in healthcare. We have 2 children. We have travelled to many South and Central American countries and after our family spent 6 weeks in Samara in the summer of 2014, we knew this was the place we wanted to continue to come back to. We love the beach and enjoy the balance of activities and relaxation that Samara has to offer. We spend our time surfing and enjoying coconut mojitos.

What makes this condo unique

This condo is the perfect location. We are close enough to walk to the beach, restaurants, and stores yet far enough away have peace and quiet. The pool and grounds are beautifully maintained and the view from the condos floor to ceiling windows is breathtaking. The beach isn't overcrowded and the ocean is calm enough for the kids to play in and yet still has waves that are great for learning to surf. The area offers both relaxation and adventure options. You can take surf lessons, an ATV tour, canopy tour, nature hikes, dolphin tours, or just sip blended drinks at one of the many beach front dining areas.

Best Condo in Samara - Amazing Views and Well Equipped

  • 5 of 5

Great views, very close to beach and town - super walkable by road or beach. Condo was well equipped, HVAC and WIFI worked great, bed was super comfy (nova foam mattress made me very happy!) Grounds were well kept, very secure - Santo (the guard) and Chester (dog) were always happy to greet us! Booked in 24 hours, Melissa the PM was great. No issues! Thanks Blake & Martina, we left you some umbrellas!

Unbelievable View!!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely condo with all the amenities you might need including washer/dryer, kitchen tools, beach towels. The building was quiet and secure. The booking process was smooth and the owners responded promptly to any questions. Upon arrival Melissa brought us to the condo, showed us around, and answered all our questions. It was short walk downhill to the beach and a bit more effort required walking up. Hardest decisions of the day we're whether to start at the beach or the pool or simply relax on the comfy couch overlooking the ocean. Also highly recommend Soda Colochos for great local food and atmosphere and the best mojitos in Samara. Also Mama Guis - you have to try their to die for gnocchi!

We loved the view. We found the wall back up the hill with kids etc. to be more like. 15 to 20 mins.

  • 4 of 5

The house is well stocked with new furniture and nice AC, and nice pots and pans etc. The beds were comfortable. It would have been nice to have screens on the windows or balcony because we like fresh air. We were very grateful that Melissa met us at night to let us in after a long day of travel. It'd be smart to have a car at this property. The location was not what we expected so just know that it might be a short walk down the hill --you're still a ways from the heart of the beach and the walk back takes much longer.

Amazing Location and Views, Very Comfortable Condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our time at Veneto Condos in Costa Rica was wonderful, an amazing spring break getaway for our family of 4, including 2 teenagers! The location of the condo was great - both within the condo complex itself (main level, corner unit) and the condo location in Samara, just above the town and beach. We felt we had the best views in Samara! We had expansive views of Samara Bay from the condo with secure parking right outside the unit, it was only a few steps to the pool, and it was only a few minutes walk to the beach and Samara proper. The condo itself was clean and nicely decorated. It contained everything we needed during our stay. Having access to the outside on a private deck was a wonderful benefit, and we spent a lot of time there in the mornings and evenings. The property manager, Melissa, was very helpful in assisting with a few problems that arose during our stay (one A/C unit was not working when we arrived and water pressure was an issue at one point), and they were resolved quickly. The owners were also great, working with us before our arrival and answering the many questions we had. We would definitely recommend this unit to anyone and would stay here again if our travels take us back to Samara!

Nearest Airport
75 Miles
Car: not necessary

Playa Samara, located about 35 km south of Nicoya, offers a multitude of outdoor activities. You can choose a slow, relaxed pace, strolling along the 5 km crescent shaped strip of sand, considered one of the nicest in Costa Rica, with a reef that protects the beach from strong waves, making it safe for swimmers of all ages. You can sit in one of the beach front restaurants with your feet in the sand sipping your favourite drink while watching the waves roll in. Or, you can choose from the many local adventurous activities such as surfing, snorkeling, kayaking, near shore and deep sea fishing, zip-lining, hiking, caving, mountain biking, bird watching, horseback riding, motorized sport vehicles, bicycle rentals. There are also many day trips available to natural hot springs, volcanoes, white water rafting, and typical villages to watch artisans hone their crafts.

The town of Samara is right on the beach. It is only 3 blocks wide and 2 blocks deep. This still somewhat undiscovered town offers all amenities and services, including full medical and dental, police station, post offices and utility offices. There are two major banks, lots of shopping, and several food stores. There are many typical, international, and beach front restaurants, bars and night life.
