  • 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."

  • Beautiful views, gorgeous condo..... amazing stay!

    "We just spent a fabulous week in this gorgeous condo and can't say enough about it. We found the location to be just perfect. it is just outside of the main center of Tamarindo. It's close enough to the town center that we could walk to it along the beach or along the road, but yet a little outside of the hustle and bustle. The people were very warm and friendly. Mike, the owner, and Lola, the property manager, were very responsive and easy to deal with. The property description is true and accurate. It really does have fabulous views! We enjoyed beautiful sunsets over the ocean while sitting on the covered terrace. I can't say enough good things about this condo. I highly recommend it."

  • Great place to stay! Better than pictures!

    "The owners were very responsive and provided lots of information prior to our arrival. When we got to the condo we met Nick and the cleaning lady (Evelyn). Both of them were so hospitable and welcoming. The place was super clean and was even better than the on-line photos. There were so many extras throughout the condo that made our stay even better. We all LOVED the pool (especially the kids) and the views were simply amazing. The walk down to the beach was no problem but if you want to bring a lot of stuff with you it might be easier to drive otherwise I would suggest early morning walks to the beach. Our only problem was that we didn't see any howler monkeys from the condo but we sure heard them. When we come back we will stay here again."

  • Pura Vida!!!!

    "My husband and I just spent a month in one of these apartments. We chose this spot because of the photos and reviews. We were not in the least bit disappointed! We thoroughly enjoyed our Costa Rican experience and now understand Pura Vida! The apartment is exactly as it is represented in the photos. Clean, bright, open and tastefully decorated. The kitchen is very well equipped and the BBQ is an added bonus. There are some very welcomed extras, such as numerous quality towels and linens, great beach towels and chairs. We did not lack any of the comforts of home. The apartment is on the outskirts of town, but it really is a 5 minute walk to the beach and about 15 minutes along the beach to town. We did not want to rent a car this vacation and we never regretted our decision. If we needed to get to or from town, a taxi was always available and reasonably priced. The bus also stopped right out the door. For us, a daily walk became routine. The beach is beautiful. It changes drastically from high to low tide. It is an amazing place to run - early morning or early evening. Safe for children, but fun for adults and many aquatic activities. Sunsets are spectacular! The town is very laid back, but with all the necessary conveniences. Everyone is very friendly and we always felt safe. Good number and variety of restaurants. There is a great information service in town that will help direct you towards many different tours or just answer questions. Deborah, the owner/manager is also a great help. She is available at all times and wants her guests to be happy. Her sons run the Canopy tour and that is a must activity!! Very professional and exciting but safe for all ages. There is even a discount for tenants. As mentioned in other reviews, this apartment is on the main road. There is noise, up until around 10 at night. The roosters ,dogs and monkeys also make themselves known, but all of this is part of the "true" Costa Rican experience. We so enjoyed our morning coffee on our balcony and an evening drink as the sun set, watching the world go by. We really felt like became a part of the community. All in all, a wonderful home away from home in a beautiful country."
