  • 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."

  • Book here for your Tamarindo stay

    "Booking, paying, arriving to Tamarindo etc was easy with this rental! It is very clean and the washer and dryer is always nice amenity! The location is not beach front, however, the walk is easy and not far from the beach, shops and food. My friend and I rented a car since we traveled to 3 different cities in Costa Rica but next time we are utilizing the shuttle services the VRBO owners recommend. Bring cash because while most places take credit cards, most do not. They do have ATM's for if you do run out, but it is a hassle. That is one thing my friend and I wish someone had told us so now I am telling you! The beach experience wasn't as nice as it was in Samara (the city we were in before we drove up to Tamarindo) because the local vendors were constantly walking up and down the beach all day asking you if you want to purchase something. But besides that, Tamarindo is a fun place to stay in Costa Rica and about an hour and a half max from Liberia airport. We enjoyed our time at this location and will be back I'm sure!"

  • Perfect location for rest and relaxation

    "The condo is in a perfect location for rest and relaxation, yet close enough for active adventures. The condo is just as pictured. The view from the condo is outstanding. To see the blue sky and hear the surf from the front window is heaven on earth. The condo is nicely appointed with all the comforts of home. Beds are very comfortable. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and Rita from the property management company greeted us and led us to the condo to give us an overview of everything. She was most helpful and readily available for any questions we may have. The information provided by Kalli was wonderful. She did not miss a thing in terms of what is provided as well as recommendations for dining and recreation. We took advantage of having groceries delivered to the condo on the day of arrival so that we could have a restful evening and enjoy breakfast items in the morning. We took long walks on the endless beach and enjoyed cocktails and appetizers at the Beach House, which is walking distance from the condo. There is a fruit and vegetable stand just as you enter the property and the pineapples were sooo sweet and delicious. We had a private chef come to the condo on two separate occasions and it was worth every penny. We also had two massage therapist (Alejandra and Karen)come to the condo for heavenly one hour massages. We were so impressed that we had them come back again. Roxanne was the name of the concierge we worked with prior to our arrival and she is the one who set up the private chefs as well as the massage therapists. What a wonderful service. I do recommend renting a car since it is a distance from areas that have more action, such as Tamarindo. Tamarindo is about 25 minutes by car. Everything else is within walking distance; the Beach House, The Shack (best Tico breakfast in town), Playa Flamingo and its beach vendors. I would not hesitate to rent this condo again. Kudos to Kalli, Rita and Roxanne for a job well done! Pura Vida!!!!"

  • Time Slowz Down!!!

    "Bob Wilson and his team at Langosta Beach Club Condo's, provide wonderful care and attention from the moment you arrive until your departure. The rooms are wonderful and well taken care of! The location across from the beach is perfect! We spent our days by the pool and beach, enjoying food/beverage, wonderful service, and time just slowed way down! ( I don't know how they do it in Tamarido, but it actually felt like the days and nights just took their time which made the whole experience that much more enjoyable! The location is far enough from the town to be peaceful and semi-private, but close enough for walking to clubs, restaurants or the local grocery store. The staff are very, very helpful and always with a smile! The rooms have many balcony locations to enjoy the beautiful outdoors and there is a great kitchen if you wish to prepare any meals there yourself. I would recommend to anyone who was looking for a great place to stay while in Tamarindo!"
