  • Perfect location within walking distance of two beautiful beaches!

    "Well equipped two bedroom condo. Balcony with ceiling fan overlooking a lagoon area. Great for birdwatching with a coffee. Beds were very comfortable. Perfect for two couples."

  • Most beautiful view of beach from living room window

    "This second floor condo was very spacious. It offered wonderful views of beach. We were able to see many different types of birds flying by and even monkeys climbing the trees below. Air conditioned rooms felt wonderful as Samara gets very hot, although you can also open the windows and enjoy the nice breezes and hear the waves. Very nice pool with great views as you are swimming. Has laundry right in condo. The building is guarded and we felt very safe. Very short walking distance to beach, restaurants, stores. The only disadvantage was there was no free Wi Fi and we needed to ask for bath towels. Owner did respond to emails, which was appreciated. Yes, I would stay here again and recommend it to others. We had a wonderful time here. PURA VIDA!"

  • 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!"

  • Beautiful view in an amazing Condo!

    "Upon arrival in Samara, after a 3 hour drive from Tambor airport, Laura greeted us at Condo Catalina. As we walked into the beautiful, tastefully decorated, clean, nicely air-conditioned condo, it was comforting to see that the condo met all expectation based on the listing details. Quite honestly, it truly exceeded our expectations. The condo was clean and well maintained. The kitchen is fully equipped to allow for meal preparation and there are a couple of stores within walking distance for purchasing groceries. The king sized bed was very comfortable and has an amazing sunrise view over Playa Samara. The bathroom with dual showerheads has a huge window that opens to give the effect of an outdoor shower at tree top level. There are beach chairs and towels in the condo and a safe for valuables. The condo has been quite obviously well prepared to insure guest comfort. The condo complex has many extras that made our stay amazing! Fenced grounds included a covered carport that is locked at all times. There is a ground level pool with outdoor shower, lounge chairs and grill that provided a welcoming common area to cool off and relax. There are several shared resources for use by guests in the three condos. The cooler was great to take for picnics on the beach. We tried out the boogie boards in the waves on Samara beach. We used the on-site washer and dryer located in the utility room at no extra charge. The condo is less than a mile from the north end of Playa Samara. It is also just minutes away from Playa Carillo, Playa Buenavista, Playa Barrigona and Playa Camaronal. Having a rental car made it easy for us to explore several beaches in the area. After a day at the beach and lots of sunshine we found a couple of local diners, Soda Anita and Soda la Perla, to be within walking distance of the condo. The friendly families and wait staff added to the experience of Costa Rican hospitality. The food was really yummy and economically priced. The pride and care that Patrick, Laura, Denis and Xinnia take in this property is key to me confidently recommending this location in Samara. Oh yes, and the welcoming presence of Zorro completed the home away from home vibe. Thanks for sharing this great location! Karen"
