Guestbook comments from the owner
Larry and Sherry: Thank you very much for the use of your beautiful home!! You are such wonderful and friendly people. Staying in Samara for a week was an amazing experience. Lots of relaxation and playing in the ocean. Pato's Surf Shop was the most helpful. We got boogie boards, surf boards and did some ocean kayaking to the island. Overall, great experience. Thanks for everything! Hope to come back again soon.

My husband and I are originally from Canada and came to Costa Rica on vacation for the first time in 1991. We fell in love with the people and gentle lifestyle and made Costa Rica our permanent home in the year 2000. We enjoy being close to the ocean and completed our final dream home and rental villa in 2009. We are always delighted to meet new people from around the world and hence our decision to build a rental accommodation in order to help newcomers feel comfortable in any way we can.

Sherry and Larry purchased this villa in 2004

We searched all down the Pacific coast of Costa Rica and chose Samara because of its natural tropical beauty and abundance of monkeys and other wildlife and yet is close to many services. We can see and hear the sound of the surf and have the benefit of gentle sea breezes all year round. Samara is the safest swimming beach in the country, next-door Carrillo Beach is to us the most beautiful as well as being renowned for deep-sea fishing and nearby Camaronal is a protected turtle-nesting ground as well as an expert surfing beach. Location is close to the beach and town. One of the International Airports (Liberia) is less than a 2-hour drive.

There are many things to do in the area including swimming, surfing (beginner and expert), scuba diving, snorkeling, deep-sea fishing, kayaking, ATV touring, biking, various organized tours including seeing the dolphins or visiting a nearby turtle-nesting beach, horseback riding, ultra-lite planes, canopy tours, numerous options for dining/sunset cocktails, or just relaxing in a hammock or by the pool. The beach is a short walk and the drive to town is a mere 3 minutes.

VILLA APARTMENT WITH GORGEOUS VIEW

  • 5 of 5
Recently spent 7 weeks in Larry and Sherry's upstairs villa apartment. This villa is within walking distance to beach and town as we did this beautiful walk daily. The villa would meet all of your needs for either a short or long term stay. We had been travelling heavily 3 months prior to coming to Samara so this villa was perfect for us to just settle in and enjoy life in the area. Highlights for us were location away from town up high on a hill overlooking both Playa Carillo and Playa Samara. Spent many hours in the rocking chair overlooking the beautiful view enjoyed even when raining. Also, private pool enjoyed daily after our exercise walks, AC in bedroom for sleeping, cable TV, excellent internet, washer and dryer....all made for a great long stay. Larry and Sherry knew to respect our privacy which we liked, yet were friendly and helpful when needed. Also loved their little dog Meisha who greeted us everyday and sooooo much could be said about Samara, but maybe this says it all....we are going back for another long term stay. Overall, a great memorable stay, mucho gracias:)

A PIECE OF PARARDISE

  • 5 of 5
We cannot say enough about this villa. It is a lovely upstairs apartment connected to the owners' house. The unit is lovely with a fantastic 180 degree balcony view of the ocean. We spent many a night just sitting out and enjoying the sunset or watching the howler monkies eating in the trees in front of our balcony. The other wonderful part is we had an infinity pool all to ourselves to refresh ourselves after a walk into town or a day at the beach. Our hosts were wonderful, friendly and extremely helpful in suggesting various things we could do or see. This place was everything we dreamed of and more. We would certainly go back in a heart beat. Thank you Larry and Sherry for the great time!

The property has a wonderful view of the bay in Samara. It is very secure a couple minutes from town, the pool is nice to relax in enjoy the view of the bay and watch the monkeys. If we go back to Samara would stay here again and would recommend to others.

EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS!

  • 5 of 5
Sherry and Larry were gracious hosts who ensured we were comfortable and taken care of! The unit is beautiful and well-kept, and the view is breathtaking. It quickly felt like home away from home. Everything you need is either already in the unit, or just a few minutes away (groceries, beach, souvenir shops, restaurants, attractions/tour operators etc). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Highly recommend this villa, and will hopefully return soon!

SORRY TO LEAVE

  • 5 of 5
Sadly, I am at the end of a three month stay. The owners, Larry and Sherry, are both welcoming and friendly, in other words, perfect hosts. In fact, everything at Villa Veranera was more than perfect. The apartment is beautiful and the view spectacular. The walk down the street (which is virtually a very large sidewalk) to the beach is magical as both sides have flowers, plants, and trees and it feels like you are walking through a park.
For anyone who loves to watch birds this is a great place for you. There are tropical trees on all sides and a natural gully on one side that attracts many birds.
I would be more than happy to return to Villa Veranera and will dream of the day.
Thanks Sherry and Larry.
