  • Excellent séjour à Casa dos Loros ; emplacement exceptionnel !

    "Nous y avons passé 13 jours , ce qui nous a permis de bien découvrir et apprécier la maison et l'endroit; car des endroits comme celui-ci sont très difficile à trouver ; tout près d'une superbe plage de 5 kms, la maison est située à l'extrémité calme de la plage, à l'opposé de la petite ville de Samara, tout à fait charmante. l'eau est entre 26° et 30° en fonction du vent, la petite île à gauche est facile d'accès et de nombreux récifs émergent à marée basse, ce qui donne un joli paysage marin ; et que dire du coucher de soleil !!! fantastique ! pour qui aime la nature, le calme et nager avec ou sans palmes, faire de l'apnée et voir des poissons en cherchant l'eau plus claire autour des récifs, voir les pélicans plonger autour de vous etc.... c'est un régal ! la maison est très fonctionnelle, agréable avec une climatisation très efficace dans les chambres et un grand ventilateur que vous mettez où vous voulez; vu la chaleur en saison sèche, c'est appréciable; moustiquaire à toutes les fenêtres mais durant notre séjour il n'y avait aucun moustique (saison sèche) ; le nouveau système wifi est très pratique et a très bien fonctionné. Réfrigérateur et congélateur très efficace ; la maison est facile à gérer ; l'espace extérieur arrière est bien pensé pour les retours de plage : douche extérieure, bac pour rincer son matériel et une pièce utilitaire pour le ranger. TV et dvd à disposition, mais tout est en anglais ou espagnol, donc pour les "french", amenez vos films; pour la musique, nous avions pris notre petite enceinte bluetooth ; les autres appréciations décrivent bien l'environnement avec une nature riche, singes, iguanes et les autres très belles plages autour de Samara, etc... un bon rapport qualité/prix."

  • Beautiful view & safe, quiet, serene area

    "We stayed in Sámara for 3 nights during our 8 days in Costa Rica in May 2016. Sherry was prompt and helpful with her emails prior to our stay. Upon arrival, Larry was welcoming and walked us around to orient us and answered any of our questions. It was dusk when we arrived and it wasn’t until the next morning (in the sunlight) we realized a few screens were bent just enough to allow bugs in. Best rule of thumb we found: once it was dark enough to need a light on inside (as few as possible so as not to attract more bugs!), we closed the windows and turned on the A/C in the bedroom. We had so few bugs that way, they weren’t bothersome (which is great for Costa Rica). The bedroom cooled quickly enough with the A/C to sleep comfortably. The WiFi worked well for us the entire stay. The villa is setup as a duplex (one building split into two separate houses, sharing an interior wall). Larry & Sherry live in the other part of the building. In this case, the kitchen/living room wall was the only shared wall (with a door we could knock on if we needed them). So you don’t have to worry about sound traveling from the bedroom and bathroom, etc. We heard very little of our hosts when we were there. When on our balcony, we could see their balcony and the pool area but never saw them out there. I got the feeling they intentionally made themselves scarce to give us our privacy and run of the property. A few times, as we pulled into the driveway, Larry would come to his front door to ask if everything was going well and if we needed anything. They seemed approachable and willing to visit or answer questions but took their cues from their guests (in our case, we enjoyed the solitude and privacy). When relaxing on the beautiful balcony overlooking the bay, I was grateful to have this quiet little sanctuary, away from the town of Samara and the road, where we would have heard music, people and motorbikes. We had a rental car, so this property worked great for us. The beach was a 15-20 minute walk/5 min drive. When deciding if you need a rental car, think of how often you walk at home. If you regularly walk to work, stores or restaurants, the walk to the beach should be okay for you (coming back is uphill, so you might opt for the $4 taxi). If you drive everywhere at home, this may not be the place to stay for you without a rental car. The quietness and serenity were higher priorities to us than being steps from the beach. I can’t imagine staying anywhere else in Samara."

  • 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."

  • 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!"
