Pleasant condo in a pleasant location

  • 4 of 5
My family and I spent a week at this condo in October, 2014. It is in a small, pleasant complex a short distance from the main town. There are a number of restaurants and markets nearby and if not leaving the community, there is no need for a vehicle. The pool is too small for actual swimming (the beach is only 5 minutes away), but it is great for lounging and cooling off!

The condo itself is a bit small with 2 teenagers, but for the four of us it worked out ok. If you are into formal dinners and hanging out together watching tv, then this place may not be for you. There are tv's in both bedrooms but only a small "couch" and a 2-person table in the small living/dining room. For our family of four this was no problem at all because the outdoor patio was sufficiently large for all of us to congregate.

The condo includes perfectly good drinking water, a hot shower, all the cutlery and cooking utensils that one could require, including a blender (for my wife to make slushy drinks!). There are even some books and movies if you are so inclined.

The owner is very attentive and should there be a problem she will be very helpful (we had a minor issue and she was right on top of it).

There are a few things that could be improved.....things are a little worn out in the kitchen (but everything is fully functional!) and the gate entrance is "finicky" to say the least. However, the man looking after the property was always helpful when we struggled to get the gate to close properly.

All-in-all, this is a perfectly placed little unit if you are looking for a pleasant stay in a quiet area. Our family was very happy with our choice and would not hesitate to rent it again if we were to visit Samara in the future. We would recommend it to our friends and family in a heart beat!

One final thing......my two teenagers want me to point out that the Wifi worked good as well :)

Best Family Vacation Ever

  • 5 of 5
As a traveling and vacation loving we have traveled all over the Americas. Costa Rica was by far the best. Staying in Casa Simba made it much much better. Casa Simba was what we needed and much more. Traveling with 3 teenage kids it was more than accomodating. We loved the closeness to the beach. The ocean view is impressive, waking up every morning to the sound of the birds. An added bonus is having Iguana Verde (local store) right down the street. Town center is only a few walking minutes away. Mike the caretaker was very friendly, always available if we needed anytime. Rental went very smooth. The only downside is we wish we would've stayed longer... Definitely stay there again, more than one more time.

A pleasant week for the family

  • 4 of 5
4 of us (2 adults, 2 kids ages 10 and 15) spent a wonderful 8 nights here in the heart of green season. As other reviewers pointed out, the location is quiet (except for the howler monkeys in the morning) and very safe. You are a 10 minute walk from town, and less than 5 minutes from the beach and a good market (Green Iguana). There is an actual ocean view from the front windows, and the pool is very pleasant, if small.

For most of our stay, we were the only guests in the complex, and took advantage of the grill and laundry room.

There were only 2 downsides - there were a lot of ants in the unit (the property manager offered to spray, but we preferred the ants), and there is no place for a table big enough for 4. Beds were comfortable, and the air-conditioning worked well.

Favorite activities: Samara Trails hike with Alvaro, Turtle arribada in Ostional (we got lucky with the timing!), surfing at Chocos, kayaking to Isla Chora (skip the snorkeling; very poor visibility), amazing pizza from Ma Ma Gui, dinner on the beach at Lo Que Hay.

Great Condo in Samara!

  • 4 of 5
We stayed at this condo for 6 days to celebrate our anniversary. Samara is a wonderful place and we were very impressed with this condo and the management of it. We loved having the pool available, the access both to town and the beach. We loved seeing and hearing the animals nearby - birds, iguanas, howler monkeys - all added to the experience. We slept perfectly in the condo and loved sitting on the porch in the mornings.

With the grocery store so close (the green iguana) it was very easy. The town is safe and the people are both open and friendly.

Also, we rented bikes and just loved biking around the community to the beach, yoga class, even to playa carillo. We would recommend staying here for sure. Also, this condo has unique access both to the Samara main town, but also to things like the german bakery and to the little soda called 'La Perla' which has excellent food. The drinking water was perfect safe (from the tap) and we didn't have any issues the whole time we were there.

Thanks!

Awesome condo with a nice ocean view and walking distance to everything!

  • 4 of 5
I stayed at Casa Simba with my wife and daughter and we were very pleased with the accommodations! This condo is exactly as advertised and the ocean view is great! The market just around the corner makes it super convenient to pick up pretty much anything you will need and it seems like they are always open. Samara Beach is stunning, the town is small with everything you need and a real Costa Rican vibe...Casa Simba is a great place to enjoy the beautiful setting!

Perfect Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5
Staying at this condo was an incredible experience. As a young couple, we loved how close in proximity it was to the town, bars, restaurants, and beach. Although there were apartments closer to the town, it was nice to be slightly removed (only about a 10 minute walk) because the actual town can be quite noisy at night. In terms of the beach, you walk for 5 minutes and you are there. The ocean is bath water temperature, and the waves are calm enough to lounge in the water and swim. The condo has all the amenities you would need, including a great balcony view of the pool and ocean. BEING UPSTAIRS IS A PLUS! The balcony is bigger than the bottom units, and you don't have to worry about unwanted bugs as much. You have a better view as well, and it stays a little cooler because you get the ocean breeze. There is a convenience store about 100 feet away that has everything that you would need if you are feeling lazy, and would rather not make the 7 minute walk to the grocery store. There is also an ice cream parlor and an authentic Tico restaurant about 2 minutes away on foot. The place is cleaned every week and the owners are very accommodating to any needs or inquiries. Every morning you will be able to listen to the frogs, tropical birds, and howler monkeys that hang out right across the street. There is a pasture on the other side of the condo that has wild horses roaming about. BBQ parties were a must every weekend. The complex is gated and there is a guard there 24/7, although this wasn't necessary considering the area was very safe. The condo is quite spacious and could fit 5 adults easily. We didn't have a car, so for our weekend excursions, we would rent from Alamo which was located in town. We are in our 20's and found the town to have no shortage of entertainment, i.e. kayaking, scuba, snorkeling, horseback riding, reggae nights, clubs/bars, restaurants, gym, and boating. I also work from my computer, and was very impressed with the internet speed/WIFI. We called Las Palmeras our home for two months, and would have stayed longer if we could. Lovely place in all regards.
