                                  PARADISE

                                  5 of 5
                                  Four of us recently spent a week at Villa Serena. ‘Villa Serena’ is beautiful and comfortable - both inside and outside. The gazebo, pool area and yard area were perfect places to relax, nap, read, visit, and listen to the sounds of the ocean waves. The Caretakers kept all areas of the property very clean, well maintained and secure. Marcia prepared a few meals for us and did a fantastic job. The Villa is located in a private and somewhat secluded area although it is within walking distance to town for the active individual. The booking process was handled very smoothly and the information given to us was informative and useful. Each day we would venture out for a couple of sightseeing trips but did not venture too far away as we hated to leave the luxury of our home away from home! The only ’con’ I can think of is that the week had to end.

                                  DIDN'T WANT TO COME HOME!!

                                  5 of 5
                                  We arrived March 3rd and stayed for nearly 3 weeks with our 3 kids, ages 9, 5 and 2. The house was all that we had anticipated and more!! Spotless and well-maintained, it was equipped with everything we needed. Aside from a 3 day road trip to Arenal Volcano - which, by the way, we high recommend - particularly the Arenal Hanging Bridges guided walk where we saw a Margay (small jungle cat) among many other wildlife - we spent our time in Carrillo and Samara casually. We started the day with breakfast on the upstairs balcony, followed by a swim in the pool before the sun got too high, and then off to Playa Carrillo. We can't say enough good things about Playa Carrillo - secluded, quiet (even on the weekends, when the locals used the beach, it was far from crowded by any standards), clean and safe. The water is like bathwater and the surf gentle enough on most days that our younger ones could safely play near the shore. Playa Samara was also a lovely beach, however a bit busier than Carrillo on a weekend, but certainly deserted compared to what a resort beach often looks like. As any homeowner well knows, there can sometimes be problems. We had a problem with the latch on the front door but Melissa at Samara Rentals had a handyman to the house asap and the problem was resolved within 30 minutes or so. We also had a problem with the washer, but again, this was resolved rapidly and satisfactorily. Because we had quick resolution of these issues, they had little effect on our enjoyment of the house, and I didn't feel they should detract from my 5 star rating. One thing I think is worth mentioning for those who have small children/toddlers - the cliff edge of the property has just a low fence made of wires, so we had to be very vigilant with our 2 year old when we had her outside. Also the balcony rails are horizontal and climbable, so we regretfully had to keep the gate closed at all times, as our daughter is a climber! All in all, though, small prices to pay for a few weeks in paradise! We loved just living in the community, shopping in the local Mercados and getting a taste of the Tico lifestyle. We also recommend the local restaurant El Colibri - an argentinian steakhouse, just a short walk into the main street of Carrillo. Lovely staff, delicious and reasonably priced dinners and according to my husband, the tenderloin was the best steak he's ever had.

                                  BEAUTIFUL CARILLO HOME

                                  5 of 5
                                  What a wonderful place to stay, in one of the best beach destinations in Costa Rica. From the very beginning the owner was incredibly helpful with booking the trip and helping us with local insights/advice on what to expect in the Carillo/Samara area. The house is exactly as advertised, simple, functional decor, and absolutely lovely! The home was lovely and clean on our arrival, with everything you need for every day living. The pool is wonderful! Well maintained and the temperature was perfect; shaded at just the time you wanted it in the later afternoon after a perfect day at Carillo beach. The property is private and quiet, which is exactly what we were looking for. The air conditioners, fans, cable TV and internet all worked well. Playa Carillo is breathtaking, such a fabulous beach that is just perfect day after day. We went to 12 other beach destinations, Carillo outshone them all! Great family beach, waves are fun but not scary, great for our group that varied in age from 4 to 71! You can buy all your basics in Carillo, or get more variety/restaurants close by in Samara. We ate mostly at home, but enjoyed some great meals out. Our best meals were at El Lagarto, a BBQ, seaside restaurant in Samara,higher end but delicious, and Al Manglar Bar & Pizzeria, fabulous Italian, great hostess, and prices were great. Hula Jungla is just down the street in Carillo, and is also a good choice for a decent meal out. A car is almost a necessity, although the buses do go by just down the street every hour. I would certainly come back, and would recommend this place to friends and family.
