  • Really great place

    "Everything was as easy as could be. The owner was very responsive to some initial questions. Upon arrival we were met and given a tour of the house and a demo on how to operate everything. The kitchen is really nice with modern appliances and a big granite island. There is ac in the bedrooms that was nice to use, but some nights we just slept with the fan and windows open (all windows have screens and security bars). In short, it's a very nice house. The view is terrific and the property makes you feel like you're all alone, even though there are other houses around. It's very peaceful to sit on the porch and listen to the sounds. The nearest beach and town are laid back. There's more of a Tico feel than tourist feel, which was what we were looking for. One thing to note was that one night the wifi stopped working so I called the property manager on the house phone. They were very responsive and made the call to the company, set up the appointment for the repair, and waited for the technician to show up to repair. We knew this was going to be happening while we were out exploring the next day so it was not an inconvinience at all. When we returned that night the wifi was repaired and all the trash cans were emptied. I believe that this small gesture demonstrates the property managers attention to detail and true care for the renters. Sure, it's not a big deal to empty the trash cans but, hey, we were on vacation and it was one less chore to deal with! So thanks again if you're reading this."

  • Perfect House for a C.R. vacation

    "After a year in the planning, our family vacation in Costa Rica was even more than we hoped for, and much of the credit is to the house, Ventana del Mar. The pictures on VRBO drew me in and the actual house more than lived up to the pictures. We were a family of 10, ages 8 to 80, and every one of us enjoyed the pool, slide, palapa and the always cool open air living space surrounded by trees and greenery. The bedrooms were spaced so we never felt crowded. The 5 minute walk to the beach made beach trips a daily delight, especially with the warm ocean and the boogie boards provided. And few, if any, other beachgoers. The house had everything we wanted or needed. Gerardo, the caretaker, answered all of our questions and helped us arrange outings and rides to Samara. It is a short walk to the grocery store and several restaurants so we never lacked for eating opportunities. An added plus was the quick response from Michael, the owner, to each of our numerous questions during the planning. Ventana del Mar and Costa Rica will always be a special place to our family. All 10 of us would highly reccommend it for a fantastic vacation.!"

  • Pura vida!

    "Five members of my family also stayed at this house on November the 19th through the 23rd. We decided to stay at the Hilton Garden Inn for a few nights in hopes of getting out of Liberia before Hurricane Otto came through. The grounds are beautiful. The pool is amazing. Its a very short walk to Samara beach and Carillo beach. Its like having 2 beaches all to yourself! You can focus on the beauty instead of the crowds :-) The house does have some wear and tear but it is beautiful and met all of our needs. The beds are comfy, plenty of supplies in the kitchen, regular size washer and dryer, huge deck area with lots of chairs next to the pool. There is a small Inn and restaurant a few doors down toward Samara beach. They have really good food and cold beverages. Melissa, at Samara Rentals, was very sweet and took care of our needs when called. Paul, the owner, is also very nice and prompt. Thanks for an awesome trip to Samara. We would love to come back to that little piece of heaven in Samara in the future. Pura Vida!"

  • Enjoyed our stay!

    "We enjoyed our stay at the Iguana Blanca home. We stayed here for 8 days during Domana Santa and really enjoyed the proximity to the beach, surf shops, and restaurants; its a quick ride to south Guinness town as well. Everything you need is right there. The house is comfortable and practical for families and has all the amenities you need including WiFi. Most importantly air conditioning as it was super hot and dry our week. The only issue we had was that there was a water usage restriction during our stay for all of Nosara (4pm-8am for the whole town) so we adapted to the eco friendly environment. Part of the adventure! The managers and owners were very easy to work with and made every effort to make our stay enjoyable. We will be back!"
