  • Six weeks of pura vida at Casa Colibri!

    "This house is fantastic! Very clean and very well-equipped. We love to cook so we were happy with the supplies (new!) and space in the kitchen. Even the tap water tastes great here! On day one your cares melt away here as you relax in the rancho overlooking the pool and great hilltop views! It's beautifully landscaped and frequented by lots of wildlife, too! New internet and TV are wonderful and we were able to hook our laptop to the TV to watch Netflix. Denise is very responsive and thoroughly enjoys all communications of what you are experiencing during your stay. Although most people would prefer to have a rental car, we chose to walk. The road to this house is tiring to walk up, for sure, but we quickly lost weight by walking everywhere! It is about 25 minutes to walk to town/beach but only around 10 minutes to walk to Iguana Verde for groceries. 8 minutes to the best restaurant, Pacific Lodge. Taxis are only $4 but we never ended up taking one. Even when we had heavy groceries to carry, we were determined to stay in shape! The house and the town are very safe and we never felt in danger, even if we walked home in the dark. Once you know the sound of howler monkeys you won't fear their howling (sounds like there are big monsters in the jungle!). The breezes up on this hill keep you very comfortable! We did not turn on the AC even once in six weeks, preferring to use fans instead. We hung our laundry and just enjoyed a simpler, less materialistic life. The pool is amazing! You wouldn't think that it would feel refreshing in this heat but it is wonderful, whereas the ocean is warm! Plenty deep enough to swim and to do shallow dives. Siestas in the hammocks are a must, drifting off to the sounds of hummingbirds. Casa Colibri and the town of Samara are a win-win! We will be back many times!"

  • MAR AZUL PURA VIDA!!

    "Estate Mar Azul met and exceeded our expectations. The swimming pool was a hit for the entire family. The views are amazing and the house is absolutely stunning!! Access to private beaches are a breeze as well as Samara for adventure days. Johnny and Theresa went above and beyond to make sure our stay was 5 star. The hospitality is second to none and we will most certainly be going back!!! I highly recommend Mar Azul. You will definitely not be disappointed."

  • Beautiful house in amazing location!!!

    "This is a great, comfortable house with everything you might need. Our favorite was sitting out at the huge deck, after soaking in the pool and after whatever activity we did during the day. The house is great for a family vacation, with enough room to spread out but be together when needed. The pool was fantastic and a great way to cool off. It is also central to the different beaches and activities in the area. We all loved it and hope to come back again!"
