Recent Samara reviews

  • Breathtaking views, stunning sunsets

    "We recently returned from an amazing family vacation in Costa Rica, and our stay at Hacienda San Fernando was amazing. The house far exceeded our expectations! The views from the main house are breathtaking and included daily stunning sunsets, visits from local wildlife, and incredible natural beauty. The pool and outdoor area was perfect for our group of 9 to relax, eat, play, and enjoy our time there. The main house is also beautifully decorated and comfortable on the inside, too. The master bedroom was spacious and has a fantastic attached bathroom with a semi-outdoor shower. We also especially appreciated the caretakers, Freddy and Luisa, and their adorable son, Ivan, who enjoyed teaching us Spanish and gave us great tips about local beaches. We loved the town of Samara, and had fun kayaking, dining, and exploring local beaches. We hope to return to Hacienda San Fernando soon!"

  • 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."

  • Samara Vacation Home

    "I have rented this house for extended times (approximately 5 months total) during 3 different trips since 2013. It sits in a comfortable small neighborhood of foreign nationals and with native Costa Rican houses mixed in on the outskirts of the neighborhood. Its location is a 20 minute walk to an undeveloped part of Playa Samara or a 5 minute drive to Samara's restaurants and shops. The property location also allows for a 10 minute drive to the beautiful undeveloped Playa Carrillo. It comes as advertised and is ideal for simple vacationing at an affordable price. A great feature of the house is the elevated patio to enjoy simple entertaining , watching wild life in the yard or enjoying the view. It is very interesting watching the living habits of the multiple bird species and iguanas in the yard. Bring your binoculars! Occasionally you can view howler monkeys and you certainly hear them during multiple parts of the days. The favorite parts of staying here occur out on the patio watching wildlife , enjoying early morning breakfast and the evening to view the night sky or watch storms. I would recommend this house to anyone that is looking for a reasonably priced , comfortable , fully equipped rental. In my 3 years coming here it is my first choice in the area when looking for an affordable , air conditioned house with a pool. The owners, Peter and Maggie, have been very accommodating and responsive. They provide local property management if you require immediate assistance."
