About The Owner

We are a couple that has made an investment in our retirement in our purchase of a home in Costa Rica. We are awaiting the calendar to tick away to our retirement and in the interim are pleased to be able to offer our home to others who either love Costa Rica or WILL love Costa Rica!! It is truly our home away from home.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Samara

After more than 10 visits to Costa Rica we found the crown jewel in Samara. It offers the true Tico Experience with all the amenities close at hand. Almost exactly between two beaches - Samara Beach and Carrillo Beach we like the option to enjoy the quietness and serenity of Carrillo Beach and the excitement and action of Samara Beach. Samara offers all the amenities required for a relaxing vacation with enough excitement to make it's mark as our favorite place in Costa Rica

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the option of having 2 beaches within walking distance. If we are looking for peace and solitude we are an 8 minutes walk to Carrillo Beach or a 5 minute walk to Samara Beach where we often walk into town for the day's fresh fruit and vegetables. We bask in the pool and often just take a 20 minutes dip to refresh, cool down and start over again! We love to lay in the uniquely designed wading area. In the evening we enjoy the ability to watch satellite TV, watch movies, read or listen to music. We have two DVD players as we found out - the hard way - that DVD players have a country code and aren't interchangeable. We bring our iPod and dock it whenever we are home.

An unforgettable winter holiday.

  • 5 of 5
Casa Marlanda was everything we expected and more. It is a spacious, comfortable, well decorated home and we especially enjoyed the fully equipped kitchen! We will miss waking up to the sound of birds and howler monkeys and early morning coffee on the balcony overlooking the pool and laguna. We were amazed by the number and variety of birds. We chose not to rent a car and enjoyed the early morning walk along Playa Samara to yoga class and the gym and to shop. The pool was always refreshing to cool off in and Playa Carrillo is also within easy walking distance. Dean was very helpful in answering our questions and giving advice before our arrival and even e-mailed a few times during our stay to see if we needed anything! Christopher and Brenda at Samara Info Centre were friendly and helpful and arranged tours for us throughout our stay. Alvaro at Samara Trails offers a hike through his property with lots of info about the local dry tropical forest. We would recommend this tour. Local people were friendly and helpful. WE really didn't want to leave at the end of the month.

A hot Christmas and New Years

  • 5 of 5
We rented this property over xmas 2013 and new years 2014, for a 2 week period. Our group had six people in it, including 2 small children. The condo was very spacious and comfortable for a group our size. The kitchen is extremely well equipped with anything you need to cook. The appliances are high quality. We utilized the DVD player and supply of DVDs provided. The pool is EXCELLENT for kids because it has a separate childrens area, with a few toys in a room off to the side. A main highlight of this condo is that the balcony is huge. Its got an eating area for 6 and 2 large loungers, and an area to hang up wet clothes, with 3 entrances to the balcony from the condo. I would definitely recommend having a rental car if you don't want to be stuck at the property, because it is a few minutes from town. The condo building is very quiet. It was very clean. The beds and sheets were comfortable. The owner was extremely helpful, answering many of my questions before the trip.

To write a fair review I will include one negativs about this place (although I would certainly stay here again). There are gates for security, but they are not manned and are often just left open.

Great stay, would stay here again.........

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind word! We are so happy you enjoyed our home for your vacation.

The gates are locked and both manned at night however with the adjacent hotel, we share the guard. We have never had any issues or trespassers - except the German Bakery truck that comes once a week ;) But we LOVE to see him!

We welcome you back anytime!

Month long stay at Casa Marlandaa

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent a month at Casa Marlanda, late Febuary through late March, 2013. As this was our second stay at Casa Marlanda we knew all was good and we were not disappointed. The condo itself is expansive with comfortable furniture and a great view of park like grounds. Well situated with just a short walk to Playa Carrillo or a 30 minute walk to Playa Samara. We elect not to rent a car and utilize the bus system to get back and forth to Samara. All grocery needs are met with a visit to Pali in Samara. Restaurants in the area offer great diversity in dining options. Pool area just below the condo comes in quite handy for afternoon or evening swims. Bottom line, all good !

Looking for a relaxing holiday

  • 5 of 5
We arrived on the morning Feb 6th, after a little tour through the local town of Samara. We found the property to be almost like entering a private resort but without that commercial feel. The grounds are well kept and the maintenance staff very friendly.
We were traveling with my elderly mother-in-law who has to use a wheel chair for long excursions and were very happy to find a well maintained elevator in the building.
When we opened the door I knew immediately we were going to have a very relaxing 2 weeks. The suite was spacious, well decorated and CLEAN!! We were able to enjoy TV, internet and listening to music while sitting on the balcony. This is where we spent a lot of our time.
There are 2 beaches close by Samara and Corilla, Samara is closer but Corilla is amazing, just a 12 minute walk away. We did all of our shopping in Samara, found everything that we needed from groceries to liquids and more. Great little bakery on the North side of town.
Getting back to the suite, every morning we awoke to 24 degrees Celcius on the balcony, by ten am it was 30 degrees. If sitting in the shaded balocony was getting a little warm we just went downstairs to the pool. The staff could be seen cleaning the pool every morning and was the water warm? OH yeah!!
Like a bathtub.
We had privacy and at the same time you're only 10 minutes from town if you're looking for a night out.
The owners were very easy to get along with and we highly recommend this unit. We are already planning our next holiday and this is were we plan to spend it. Enjoy!!

Lovely quiet, restful vacation with your choice Pool or Beach,lots of Sun, handicap accessible

  • 5 of 5
We were pleasantly surprised to find the unit like a home, including the makings for tea and coffee upon arrival.. There were enough staples in the cupboards to get us started which we gladly topped up and added some more when we left.

The Unit is very nicely decorated, inside and out. The balcony is the full length of the condo with 3 entrance's to the inside. There is a large kitchen, with a full set of pots and pans, plates, silverware, blender, coffee pot, electric kettle even a dish washer, and lots of tea towels. The dining room has a large table, 8 settings, with exit to balcony,the living room has nice comfortable furniture, TV with cable and internet. We found the master bedroom large with a kings size bed, en-suite, TV, and black out blinds for the ones who want to sleep late. The other bedroom have queen size beds and lots of storage.
The Unit has everything, washer, dryer, safe for your valuables and lap top, air conditioning, and more.

The view from the balcony of he mountains, jungle and the large trees was very beautiful and relaxing specially with the wild birds and animals to bring more enjoyment. the grounds were well kept, with lots of the tress and flowers with shade in case you didn't want to go to the beach.

The beach is close, but the pool is there for your late afternoon dip.while the monkeys wake up from there afternoon naps to entertain you.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 week stay there and we're looking forward to returning in the future, and would recommend it. There 5 of us there with one being handicapped. We never felt crowded not did we have problems getting the wheel chair around.

Fantastic Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5
I would love to take a moment to write a note to all of you who just might be thinking about this property.....JUMP.....it was absolutely awesome!! The condo was clean and tidy. We are a family of 5, 3 teenagers!! They fully enjoyed the space. All of the amentities needed from home were there! All you have to do is bring your swimming suit. You are only a 5 minute walk to either beach ( we loved Corillo beach) , you are only a 5 minute drive back into Samara for groceries or IF you don't rent a car, you are a 30 minute walk on a lovely beach to town to grab groceries, while watching for your favorite shells and sand dollars!! The people in the condo....well let's just say they are wonderul, it's like a home away from home where you just love your neighbours. The pool is fantastic, the food is wonderful, lovely site seeing.....we stayed 10 days.....NOT LONG ENOUGH! We will be going back!
