I'll start by saying I had high hopes for Casa Limon Dulce after reading all the reviews several times. Over the week we stayed here I must say the house, the town, the helpfulness of Gerardo exceeded every expectation and I cannot recommend this stay enough.
The pictures as others have said while stunning still do not do the property justice. We found ourselves taking as many pictures of the house and pool as we did of the beautiful Samara beaches. The house was the perfect retreat to relax after a long day at the beach, to cook a meal in the beautiful kitchen and relax at the pool listening to the music system (very nice touch!).
Complementing the warm and beautiful home was Gerardo: a true professional who made every aspect of our trip worry free. Gerardo as a resource is truly having the wealth of knowledge of a local any time you need him. Not only a professional, but by the end of a week he felt like a friend.
I also recommend renting the car, a brand new Toyota SUV which afforded us an easy way to move around and transport groceries. That said, the beach is easily within walking distance and we made the walk once or twice a day to the beach and home.
I can't wait to return some day. Pura Vida!
It is like you guys keep upping the experience...but it is because you are also open to it!! Gerardo is really an asset to make things best and has made many friends like you. When he visited the U S. The last couple years, he had so many friends that it allowed him to travel our big country and experience their lives as he shared his in Costa Rica.
Back to you, please know that your experience is also ours...return to a known place at your will. It shall be a good return!! Rich
An amazing property, we loved every minute...
Let me start by saying that we researched for months to find the perfect property for our first family vacation. Casa Limon was one that we kept coming back to view because of the amazing reviews found on vrbo.
We were not disappointed at all. If anything, our vacation was so much more than we could have asked for and we could find no faults at all with any aspect of the beautiful home and service received from the property manager, cleaning ladies, and pool maintenance crew.
The home is so well laid out that we rarely wanted to leave and venture to town. Cooking in the kitchen was a wonderful experience that the fresh food from the markets only made better. The beds were sheer luxury. The most comfortable that we have ever slept on. The open concept living area and pool were enjoyed from sunrise to sunset by everyone.
Gerardo the property manager started our vacation off by helping meet any additional requests we had even before arriving and provided a safe and comfortable journey for us to and from the airport.
I highly recommend renting the SUV from Gerardo during your stay. It makes getting around much easier and is a very nice ride!
Gerardo is a wealth of information and was available for anything we needed.
We were amazed by the town of Samara and impressed by both beaches at Carillo and Samara. We felt very fortunate to have been able to stay at Casa Limon and look forward to coming back soon.
Casa Limon will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
We are so glad your experience was special! And you’re eloquent review is of memorable value to the resident experience we try to provide. Gerardo is a “jewel” with vast knowledge, supreme caring, and gentle demeanor. We have return guests who become friends!! We look forward to your return. Regards. Rich
A Fabulous House and Pool and Guide
Casa Limon Dulce (I write by the pool with howler monkey chorus in the trees) is fabulous unique and striking— our 4 adults and one teen appreciates it as a retreat and base for exploring Sámara. The other reviews say it all: great indoor outdoor main room and pool, very good regular pool and house cleaning by devoted people, and a remarkably helpful property manager Gerardo Arias— he got us from the airport and we rented a good car from him. AC in the bedrooms at night and a well stocked kitchen helped, as did Gerardos recs for turtle tour, kayak/snorkeling, ziplining (try it it’s fun) and more. We also highly recommend Gustos on the beach, you do need a car here, and, wear shoes when possible because there are critters in Costa Rica. Pura Vida. 🦋🦎😊
Jan, while I have no monkeys, I have terrific guests like your group. Glad also that your praise of Gerardo and his service and knowledge is appreciated. His car for guests and airport pick up is certainly another benefit for first timers and repeat guests. We hope that you return!
We had an amazing time! The house is beautiful, well equipped and spacious. Throughly enjoyed the outdoor living space, pool and wild life. Will definitely be back! Also, I highly recommend Gerado for the taxi service and for info on things to do in Samara. He speaks fluent English and made our trip so much more enjoyable!
I appreciate your comments— particularly about Gerardo. He is a very special asset to anyone’s experience. He makes your travels so much easier and has both vast knowledge and pride in his country of Costa Rica as well as his hometown of Samara. We await your return! Rich
Lovely Costa Rican home near Samara and the beach
We enjoyed our stay at Casa Limon Dulce. A lovely comfortable home in a good location near the beaches and town of Samara. We liked the openess of the home with ceiling fans and interesting and tasteful decor. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need to cook and prepare meals. We loved the pool and patio area where we could view and hear lots of birds and greet the iguanas, coati, and pretty squirrel. We didn't have any Howler monkeys as guests , but heard them all around us. Gerardo, the caretaker, and Desi who cleaned everyday during the week were so friendly and helpful. We would like to return.
Gerardo and Desi commented that you were kind, peaceful folks! And we would all love your return!
Keep coming back!
This is our 4th stay at Casa Limon Dulce, and we still love it. It’s close to town but just far enough to be quiet at night. Wildlife sightings, great living space, comfy beds, and the host (Rich) and house manager (Gerardo) are always fantastic to work with. Highly recommend!
And your visits are always welcomed! We feel like you are a “house family friend“. Hope to see you again soon.
Horseback tours can begin from the house up into the mountains or down to the beach,a canopy tour zip-line is nearby, a multitude of Costa Rican activities and tours are available in town.
