A chic, eco-friendly oasis in the jungle, but in the heart of town as well. A serene property with a river stone pool and comfortable furniture to nature watch from.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The previous reviews were glowing so we definitely were pumped about it. Below are the highs and lows of the place. The Highs Elias. He is the property manager and treated us like we were his family. We are friends now and I can't tell you how much he made our stay. Anything we needed, he would. Thank you sir. We are grateful. Location. Wow. Perfect. About 400 steps and you are in the sand. Quiet and away from any noise. The security guard at night was somewhat of an added comfort. The pool. Forget about it, it was amazing. Such a great place to relax during the day, got to hang out with some monkeys, birds and other cuddley creatures. The Lows The smell. Its smelled a bit like mildew, we think it was from the bed. The bugs. Its Costa Rica so there are bugs everywhere but we got a few bites staying here. Its important to state though, that we did not tell Elias about any of the lows, so he did not have a chance to fix things and I know they would fix it. So, if we cared enough, we would've said something...but we didn't. I am sure they will fix some of these issues since I think we were the first people to stay here in a while (it was rainy season). Definitely stay here. We just wanted to provide a more comprehensive review, since none of the other reviews mentioned these things.
Beautiful vacation home, looks just like it does in the pictures. Great location in Samara. It is located at the end of a driveway, so you feel like you have a very private and secluded location. The land behind it is undeveloped, so lots of trees and wildlife (we watched monkeys from the kitchen window one morning)! But at the beginning of the driveway, you are right on the main street of Samara and you can see the beach at the end of it! Plus, there is an amazing bakery almost right next door! I had two small kids with me, and it was a great fit for me and the whole family. My 4 year old could play in the shallow end of the pool, and the beach was an easy walk for him to do with me! The property was great, and even has a dishwasher, which made big family meals a breeze to clean up after! We loved Samara, the locals are so friendly! We would definitely love to visit again!
