Area Info
Samara is connected by good roads to both the international airports. Situated between the two best beaches in all North America. To the north is open jungle which includes a canopy tour. Sit on the terrace and watch the amazing views. You are 600 ft. above sea level and yet only a fifteen minute walk to the beach. Enjoy fishing, surfing, scuba diving, horse back riding ultra-light flying experience or sit lazily in local tide pools observing the tropical fish.

The local town has grocery shopping, banking, and numerous fine restaurants.

Developed enough for your comfort but still retaining the small town charm of a local fishing village.

THESE FROM 2009

Barbara Kahan

Hello Alex,

We are finally back home after over a month away and I wanted to write and thank you for the spectacular time we had in Samara. We loved staying in your place, it is very lovely and extremely comfortable, and of course the view is absolutely stunning. For me it really was like paradise. You did a wonderful job designing it! Gladys was great and we liked her a lot, and Melissa and Mariel were very helpful and efficient. Many thanks from all of us! We really enjoyed ourselves a lot.


Sorry this is a few weeks late, but we wanted to let you know what a pleasure it was staying in your house. I had never thought of a layout that led everyone to gather outdoors like that before. And whereas initially we sat facing the gorgeous view, we gradually discovered the other vistas and the wonderful wildlife that accompanied them. My personal favorite thing was the papaya tree. There was one ripe papaya on it during our stay, and while there we saw toucans, a parrot, other birds, and lizards all taking their turns eating it. It was amazing to see what would gather at that one tree. I also loved waking up early before the others to hear the sounds.



I am not a beach person, and I had anticipated that our time at the house would probably be my least favorite part. I was entirely wrong. THe house and hammocks were so comfortable, we befriended the fish lady and cooked in virtually every night (delicious--your kitchen was incredibly well furnished), there was never a shortage of animal life on the premises (from the horse that shocked us as we pulled in the first night, to the local shepard, the leaf cutters (and fire ants!), the toads, howlers, lizards (large and small) and amazing array of bats, birds, insects and butterflies. The town is pleasant, and both beaches (Samara and Carrillo) were quiet and relaxing. (I never knew the Pacific Ocean could feel like bath water!)



Thank you so much for opening your home to us. My husband can think of nothing else than returning for two weeks at least!



All the best,



Sarah Cunningham and family

Kevin and Jenny Reay,



Jenny and I wanted to thank you again for sharing your house with us in Samara. We had a very nice time. You have a beautiful property. Just the kind of vacation we were looking for. We have discussed Costa Rica for years and were pleasantly surprised. We both thought it would be more built up than it actually is. It is still very much unspoiled.
