  • 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."

  • Cleanest, Safest, and most economical place to stay in Guiones

    "Villa Canadiense is clean, safe, and has everything you need to relax. I stayed there for two weeks in January/February 2016 and lived care free and happy. Me and three of my friends surfed all day every day at the world famous Guiones beaches and had a blast. The local Ticos were friendly (as long as you didn't paddle battle for waves) and the local Super (grocery store) and sodas (mom and pop restaurants) were relatively inexpensive and convenient. Villa Canadiense is only a short walk through the jungle to the beach and I woke each morning eager to see the wild dogs and other native critters that inhabited the area. At the Villa, we had everything we needed. We cooked plenty of meals, relaxed by the pool, listened to local music and partied. One night, we even had dinner with the owner of the Villa. She was great. There was plenty of room for all of us and four longboards. Do yourself a favor and DO NOT LOOK AT ANY OTHER PLACES IN GUIONES. Villa Canadiense is the cleanest, safest, economical, and most convenient place to stay. Each day we left a tip for the cleaners, and most of the time, if we didn't specifically tell her to take it, we would return from surfing to find the tip untouched. The staff is like family and made our stay worry-free. We already booked our stay for next year and plan to return there each year to surf and take in the local scene."

  • Lovely house, great location

    "We stayed here for 9 days over New Year and really enjoyed it. House is well stocked with all that you need and the pool was perfect as it got very hot during the day. We went horse-riding and boys went fishing both of which were really good fun, and a boat trip to Palo Verde where we saw so many birds and crocodiles. The house is far enough away from the beach to feel secluded yet an easy 5-10 minute stroll away so we had some lovely early morning walks, and enjoyed a few drinks at sunset. We had some problems with the air con, which you really do need as it was very hot at night when we were there, but Laura who runs the place was wonderfully helpful and could not have done more to help. There have been security issues in the area so we hid things when out for the day, and there is security at night so that was great. All in all a lovely location, and really lovely house."

  • Amazing view!

    "Wow, what a place to spend a week and what a view to wake up to each day! This was our second stay at Casa Pastor and this time we brought our three teens along. The home is comfortable, clean & spacious. We enjoyed the covered porch and cool pool every afternoon and took turns relaxing in the hammock! The mangoes on the mango tree were ripe so we made mango pancakes one morning! Melissa, the property manager, made sure we had everything we needed. We played at the beach each morning (surfing, boogie boarding, beach volleyball) and relaxed at the house in the afternoons before we went back to the beach for more activities like kayaking, snorkeling, etc. For those who enjoy a blend of relaxation & adventure in a beautiful place that is off the beaten path, Casa Pastor in Samara is for you! Alex & Carol, our family thanks you for allowing us to stay in your beautiful home! Hope we can return someday! Stacia"
