  • Beautiful. peaceful, and hospitable place

    "Just back from our wonderful stay in this property. The house and the grounds are beautifully maintained. It is very peaceful and serene, just what we were wanting. The only disadvantage is getting there. The drive from Liberia is a little over 2 hour drive. There was a mixup with the rental car place but finally we were able to get a large enough vehicle for our family (7) and luggage. Then we discovered a flat tire on this vehicle the next morning. Thankfully, we decided to get the extra insurance so it was all covered. A new vehicle was brought to us from San Jose. This extra insurance was a surprise because I had planned on not getting extra insurance because my credit card company had told me we were covered while there. I advise everyone to get the full coverage. We were told that it is required by the government and different levels are available at various charges. We decided on the full coverage and glad we did. Anna, the housekeeper and cook, and Freddy, her husband who does maintenance/landscape, were very hospitable and went out of their way to make sure we were taken care of. On the next to last day my son was swept off the rocks while fishing on the beach by a high tide coming in with the full moon that afternoon (Anna had warned him not to go and fish there, but male testosterone took over and he went). He came back bruised and bleeding but thankfully, he was not washed out to sea. He lost the car key when he was knocked off the rocks so we had to call again for another set of keys (again glad we had full coverage so it was included). Rental company brought a new car so all was well. So the lesson is LISTEN TO ANNA AND FREDDY! They know the area and the hazards. The view from the house is beyond words in it's beauty. We loved swimming in the beautiful infinity pool and gazing at the ocean. We enjoyed the beautiful birds and their singing, the beautiful flowers and plants, and one day the monkeys came up close to entertain us which was fun! One afternoon we saw whales in the distance and so glad we had taken out binoculars. Anna's cooking is wonderful! Her barbecue chicken, rice, beans, and the pasta she makes were our favorites. She helped us find the stores and places we needed to go to. And she was caring and patient with us, especially when my son was injured. We appreciated her so much! A good time and memory for our family."

  • Absolute Heaven

    "The stars reflected like little lights in the smooth sheets of water that washed up on the beach in front of the house the evening we arrived. That is when I knew we were in for something special staying at Sand Dollar Cove. We were given exacting instructions on how to get there. The roads were easy to navigate and were in good condition, though the trek is not for the feint of heart. We wanted to get away from it all and enjoy time with family and friends in a setting ripe for adventure and SDC was the perfect fit for us. Our party included four adults and six children, four of whom were teenagers. We spent our days reading in the hammocks (great collection of books at the house - thanks!), sitting on the spacious porch overlooking the beach, boogie boarding, playing in the waves and riding the bike along the beach all the way to the estuary. In San Francisco de Coyote, we discovered a bakery and got to know the local grocer; he made us special drinks & helped us find food for all those teenagers. Pat (the manager) made sure we had all we needed and helped arrange to do a kayak trip through the mangroves. She had great recommendations for restaurants that were a short drive away. Cheo (the caretaker) brought us fresh eggs every morning, made pinto gallo & fresh tortillas for us, fried up fresh fish and made enough arroz con pollo that we actually had leftovers! (no small feat with a house full of teenagers) Cheo's son took the kids fishing one morning and Cheo made a bonfire for us on the beach. The howling monkeys woke us in the morning and we quickly adapted to the local habit of going to bed with the sun. By week's end, we felt like locals and could have stayed forever."

  • Wonderful stay, as described

    "We had a wonderful time staying at this condo in Samara! It was very much as described in the listing and the reviews of others. The owner and the local hostess were wonderful and helpful! The rooms were all very clean and the kitchen provided all of the essentials for us. If you go out of the condo complex to your right, there is a little grocery store and little café. The walk into the downtown from the condo is a little far for a quick meal or with many people. So we were glad to have our rental car. It is nice though that it was a little outside of town as Samara is a nightlife town and we enjoyed the quiet and rest. There's a beautiful view from the pool area of the beach and we loved the afternoon pool times. Overall, it was a quick but wonderful stay in Samara at this condo! I recommend it!"

  • Couldn't be happier with this home!!!

    "I fell in love with this home as soon as I arrived. I stayed two nights last month with 3 other friends and it was just what we were looking for. The house is very private, well kept, across the street from a small grocery store, and has an excellent side beach access that is 50 meters from the ocean."
