Recent Samara reviews

  • Stunning breathtaking views! Wonderful place to stay! Highly recommended.

    "Another five star rating for this house!! Truly deserved. Case Vista del Mar is a wonderful house situated up in the hills with the most stunning breathtaking views over the bay. I doubt anyone would ever get fed up with the views (the photos don't do it justice). Surrounding the property are trees and fauna attracting the wildlife, hummingbirds, butterflies, coatis etc and to sit and watch the monkeys eating the mangoes, only metres away, was like being in a nature programme. The house itself is clean, spacious and very well equipped, particularly for families or groups. The master bedroom has a huge kingsize bed with a dual aspect of views with a fantastic ensuite. We were so grateful when Kate and Will changed one of the other bedrooms to two single beds from a double as our teenage sons wouldn't have been happy sharing a double!! In fact their decision to do this made it a firm booking for us. But I think the beds can become back to being a double if needed. There is a lovely pool regularly maintained with an outside shower for rinsing the sand from the beach off. We would advise to have a car as it is a long walk to the beach and town (and uphill in the way back). The town is a 5 minute drive away with some great restaurants, supermarkets, German bakery (yum!), pharmacy, surf schools (would recommend C & C Surf School on the beach) etc. Great communication from Will and Kate throughout. All in all a great rental!! We will have wonderful memories of watching the Olympics from here too."

  • So Relaxing

    "We love Samara, and loved this place. It is a little bit outside of town, which we weren't sure about, but we ended up really liking the location. The drive back to town and the Samara beach is about 10 minutes, and about the same to Playa Carillo. It's extremely private, with only this home on the property. The home is a great layout, with the bedrooms all along one side, opening to the patio and pool, and the kitchen and living area also open to the patio. The house is not brand new, and doesn't have high end appliances, etc., but is very classic Tico and charming. We had 3 families staying together and the space was perfect for us. The patio has views of the ocean and beach, as well as the surrounding woods on the peninsula. There were lots of animals on the property which we enjoyed. We saw monkeys a couple of times, as well as lots of iguanas, some bats, an owl, and many different species of birds. The caretakers were very friendly and helpful, and responded quickly whenever we called them. We loved this place -- it is the real unspoiled Costa Rica, and we will definitely stay here again!"

  • Perfect location and place for quiet getaway

    "My wife and I stayed here for a long weekend and it was perfect. Larry and Sherry were perfects hosts. They were very accessible yet respected our space so unless we wanted to ask questions we didn't even know they were there. We walked to town fro breakfast (steep hill but perfect for morning walk) and could hear the monkeys in the trees. Samara is a great little town. Not over the top with party scene but enough choices of restaurants and bars that it lacks for nothing. In the evenings you can watch the sunset from the pool or from your terrace. We saw a family of monkeys moving through the trees in front of our deck. Great spot for a couple to rent! Thanks Larry and Sherry!"

  • Second time around.

    "Second visit for our family to Condo # 4. Great location, short drive to town (supermarket, pharmacy, restaurants, etc.), very well equipped from kitchen to bedroom, A/C worked great in July Samara heat, gorgeous pool in what you would feel is the middle of the jungle."
