  • 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.!"

  • Perfect relaxing retreat

    "We had a wonderful time during our three week stay in Samara. We were a family of four, with two teenagers. The condo was absolutely perfect for our needs--plenty of space with an open layout, a ten minute walk to two different beaches (Carillo and Samara), everything we needed to cook, and a huge DVD and book collection for rainy periods and the early nightfall. Plus we got to watch troops of howler monkeys on two different occasions in the trees across from the outdoor patio and around the pool! (Being on the second floor is perfect for bird and monkey watching, and the views of the surrounding hills and sunsets are spectacular.) Both the kayaking to the Isla Chora and the zipline company are also in walking distance, and the pool was perfectly maintained--nice for hot days! Since we had such a long stay, we rented a car, and the drive into Samara is only a few minutes and the road is great. That was not true of other properties in the area that we had considered--so glad we went with this one. Dean and the property manager, Laura, had great suggestions and were quick to respond to any of our needs or questions."

  • Perfect location for a family beach vacation!!!

    "The property was exactly as advertised and exceeded some of my expectations. The location can't be beat. Just off the main road into town. Far enough removed from everything to be quiet but within very easy walking distance of the beach, bars, shops, and restaurants. The upstairs apartment had an open floor plan that was great for a vacation. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen was stocked with everything you could need. The balcony was awesome! Dana and French Fry were great hosts. I will definitely be their guest again. Hopefully sooner rather than later."
