A must accommodation if you are visiting Samara
This was an amazing condo from which to launch a Samara (and vicinity) vacation. We walked to the beach every day, enjoyed the amazing pool, and had ocean side dinners at the countless great dining spots along the beach (which are safe and easy to walk to and from at night along the beach... just bring a flashlight and try to avoid the poor little hermit crabs that come out at night). This is the best view of the beach and bay!!
We'll Be Back :)
The location and accommodation were awesome!! We had such a wonderful time in Samara and the accommodations were perfect. Exactly as advertised and everything we needed was there. Nick was so easy to work with and was a wealth of information, it was our pleasure to meet him :) . We would definitely recommend this location to friends and family and are already looking forward to our next visit!!
Great Place to Vist
I feel bad giving this property 3 stars because we really did enjoy our stay and would recomend it but there were a few issues.
First of all the owners and property mgr and security staff were great. Communication was fast and the owners sent a thorough information pkg. that was very helpful. They seem to know lots of the locals and are very well liked.
The property mgr Nick was very friendly and well conected.
The security staff were friendly and came and got us one morning when the howler monkeys came to visit. The facilty dog Chester was a hit.
The town is super cool and the location of the vrbo was perfect.
The apartment itself was very clean. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils. It was well furnished and has excellant wifi.
The pool area was nice although the waterfall feature does not seem to work. In the pictures whst appears to be a jacuzzi is actually a paddling pool for little kids but its not like its cold there anyway.
So why not 5 stars?
The vrbo has an srea with big windows instead of a balconey. This seems common i think because at certain times insects might be an issue although we never evrn had to apply insect reppellant the whole trip. The problem is the windows and floor are a weird v shape and if you are within about 5 feet of the v you can see into 6 other apartments and of course they can see you. It is a very odd set up. There is blinds but that defeats the purpose of an ocean view. If this was the only issue i would have given 5 stars ss it was not a real problem.
They shut the water off every night ftom 1130 to 6-7 am. This eould have caused issues if someone got sick but the upsetting part was daylight in the tropics comes early and ends early so it is nice to be out the door ny 655 or 7 to enjoy it. With no water yo are losing a ptime hour prr day at least.
One day there was no water in the faciltu at all but that is not the owners fault. Things break. But thrre was no warning or explanation given.
Probably the thing that caused me to not give full stars however is the 3 a/c condensers hung immediately outside the master bedroom window. My favorite part of any tropical vacation is awakening to the sounds of the jungle getting up. Monkeys, birds, insects etc should be your alarm clock. With the condensers located where they are all you hear is their noise. Quite disapointing. Howler monkeys could be and were in the trees immediately behind the condo but could not be heard over the condensers.
Thanks very much for your feedback. We do appreciate it. I just wanted to comment on few of the concerns you raised:
When the building was designed they opted for that V-Shape design (instead of a balcony) to increase the living space within each unit and also enhance the views. The pictures out these windows don't lie - the view is fantastic and is even better in person. Also these large windows open fully which is great for letting a breeze in and listening to the surf. Coffee in the morning with these windows open is our favorite time to be in the condo! In terms of privacy...it's true that you can look into the neighboring units if you stand in that V area, but we invested in very expensive commercial grade blinds that provide you with privacy if required while allowing you to still see the ocean through the blinds. Most other units in the building do not have these.
This past rainy season in Samara, was particularly dry. So our wells have not been as full as they normally are. Additionally, in January, a leak from one of the neighboring house water lines (that draws water from the wells) was identified. This has now been fixed and definitely helped our water shortage. My wife was at the Veneto for a week in mid February and did not notice any water issues at all during her stay. However, if the wells do run low again, the building management may restrict water usage during non peak times to allow the wells to fill.
In regards to the air conditioning units outside our door/bedroom window....there are no other options as to where these can be placed. We've never had anyone mention this being a concern before but we did have a technician come out after your stay to service them just to make sure they are running as quietly as possible.
Thanks again for your feedback.
Lovely modern condo with the most spectacular view!
Great Condo, Samara is awesome
This property is excellent.
We really enjoyed our time in Samara and nearby Carillo beach. It’s a smaller town and less touristy then Tamarindo.
The condo has everything you would need. For things you don’t have Nick is there to help.
Chris the property owner is genuine guy And a great family. You can tell they truly care about the experience of their guests.
We had an issue during our stay and they did everything they could to fix it.
We would stay here again in a heartbeat. The pool is great the view is spectacular and the area is one of the best we’ve explored in Costa Rica. And we’ve seen a lot!!
My only regret is that we didn’t spend more time here rather then in La Fortuna later in our trip!
Great work Chris and family. And thanks Nick for doing everything you Did.
Great time in Samara
Lovely condo with a pool that's a short walk to the beach. Lots of great places to eat in town as well.
