  • 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."

  • Adventures in Costa Rica

    "We stayed at the house for one week. The house is on the edge of the jungle. Close enough to Samara but far enough away from the crowds. Punta Islita is just a few miles south of the house. You do need a 4x4. Being off the paved roads is where adventure begins. If you want the remote and real Costa Rica experience, there is no need to go back to Samara (except for gas). There is a very nice place to eat in Punta Islita (Restaurant Kambute). The food was more traditional Costa Rican. Further south you can find more places to eat. We enjoyed going to the Coyote area for breakfast ( but that may be too far for some). We saw parrots every day. Heard the howler monkeys everyday. Saw them most everyday. Macaws visited the property one day. Great views! Great beaches! Mike was great with information, suggestions and about everything we threw at him! Thank you for a great adventure, Mike!"

  • 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!"
