Greetings. We're Richard & Carla owners of Plaza Samara, unit #3.

We love Samara Beach. We live in the San Francisco Bay Area and like to visit in July. The rest of the year we rent out the space.

Carla Winter, owner or Melissa Marin, property manager purchased this condo in 2004

When we arrived at Samara Beach it was love at first sight. The town and beach was everything we ever dreamed of in a tropical beach paradise. We bought the property before it was built, just a vacant lot w/ a blueprint and a prayer. We are grateful that the project completed and the property is now thriving. We're very happy with our property, but do to some pressing health issues, it is time for us to sale it. Turn key ready, for someone we hope loves it as much as us.

The are many unique benefits to Plaza Samara, including its prime location & elegant appearance.

NICE PLACE TO STAY WITH KIDS

  • 4 of 5
We stayed here with 3 kids and 2 adults (2 moms) and the 3 bedroom set up was great. AC worked well and ceiling fans were nice. Kids swam in pool- some landscaping around pool would be nice but it was fine. We cooked in the kitchen and found everything we needed. Short 2 block walk to beach, lots of restaurants nearby, next door to big Pali grocery store. There were howler monkeys in the trees next to the property one day.

Getting and turning in keys was easy and we got deposit back quickly after return. Be sure you have house manager's cell phone. When we went to return keys, the office was closed due to a holiday but since we had the cell phone we were able to call and make another plan without wasting much time. Nice property! My only wish is that the windows would open- evenings were cool and breezy but we had to use AC as windows don't open.

Owner's Response: About windows... The weather and elements can be intense and extreme in the tropics so a weather proof non-opening windows is helpful in minimizing damage. The master bedroom has an attached bathroom with a mosquito screened covered window that can be opened for ventilation. The other bedrooms do not have a outside wall, so there would be no point to opening a window, but it is there to let light in. We have ceiling fans in every room and air conditioning. We also have a portable fan. When the air moves, is what feels cool.

IDEAL PLACE TO STAY IN PLAYA SAMARA - WE WILL BE BACK :)

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this awesome condo for an entire month (Jan 31-Feb 27, 2014) with our family of four, including our two young boys (ages: 5 & 2). We also had my parents visit for a few days. (My dad is 61 and is not a very adventurous traveler and is typically ready to go home from vacation after about 5 days, BUT he did not want to leave Samara and has talked about going back!!) We did not have a car and we found this to be an ideal location in Samara. Everything was within walking distance (the major grocery store - Pali- is separated by the large yard but is literally next door; so many restaurants are in the immediate area and within a short walk; the town doctor is in the complex; the pharmacy and bank are across the street; the beach is a 3 min walk down the main street; the Information Center is around the corner; there is a Preschool/International School on the other side (that allows drop-ins for visiting children); the rental car and bus stop are across the main street, and so much more... The condo itself is fantastic!! We found it to be simple and comfortable (simple furniture, not much decor), which was perfect for us! The kitchen had everything we needed (we had breakfast & lunch at home most days and dinner out most nights), it was so nice to have the washer/dryer in the unit especially since we were there for a month and the A/C and fans kept the space cool when we were home. The pool was so refreshing (it was in the 90s the whole time we were there, so we were in the pool multiple times/day), there's a hose to rinse off the sand from the beach before hopping in, and a nice palapa with a BBQ, which we used to have a BBQ with the neighbors in the complex. We were lucky to have a family with 2 young children (ages 3 and 10 months) stay in the other upstairs condo for 3 weeks while we were there, so all of our boys played together. Playa Samara is an excellent place for families- it is safe, the people are very friendly, everything you need is readily available and because the beach is tucked in the bay, the water is safe for swimming. I cannot say enough good things about Playa Samara, this condo and our vacation!!! Carla, the property owner, was wonderful and easy to communicate with and Melissa, the in-town property manager, was wonderful as well. Stay here - you'll be happy you did!! We can't wait to go back...

SPACIOUS, COMFORTABLE CONDO NEAR BEACH, STORES, RESTAURANTS

  • 5 of 5
This condo was a wonderful home-base for our family's exploration of Playa Samara and surrounding beaches. Cool and spacious for five of us, with a kitchen just right for our cooking needs. Wi-Fi, washer/dryer, plenty of towels, and great showers after long days at the beach. The condo was clean and well-maintained, and the property managers very friendly. The owner was delightful and easy to communicate with. Many restaurants, shops, and markets close-by. And of course the beach. Thank you for sharing your home with us. Pura vida!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed there for 3 nights and i am sure that is the best place to stay in Samara, big place with a nice bedrooms, extra clean and have everything you need for best vacation ever, located in a paradise area surrounded by many beaches included one of the top 25 best beaches in the world "Puerto Carrillo" i definitely will recommend this condo to stay, if you go with friends or family, you can relax at the pool while the bbq, right next to the pool is ready, as we did. Carla and Richard (owners) are awesome, and you feel this place as home, excellent people to deal with. AAA place highly recommended.

AUTHENTIC COSTA RICA

  • 5 of 5
Fabulous condo is beautiful Samara. Plenty of room and amenities. Fully equipped kitchen for preparing meals with many local "super markets" to shop. There are also many great restuarants for dining out if you wish. The condo is centrally located, so you walk anywhere you need to . If you want to you can rent a car to go outside of town or there are several tour companies in Samara. The Ticos are very warm and welcoming and will assist you any way they can. The condo is spacious with all the amenities, plentiful towels, Wifi, TV and music as well as AC. The water is plentiful (hot and cold). This is not the case in all places in Samara. There is a delightful pool out back that is the perfect respite from a day at the beach. The managment company is located a couple of doors down and is only a phone call away. They were very responsive, although we only needed them to help us get in the first day. The owner, Carla, is most accomodating and a great communicator. She was very patient with us Homeaway newbies. We will definately return!

Owner's Response: Margaret was an outstanding tenant from day one, and reflects the type of people we like and want to come share our 2nd home with. I knew she would care for my home like it was hers.
Much appreciated. Carla Winter

PERFECT!

  • 5 of 5
I just returned from almost a month staying at this condo with my husband and two kids, aged 2 1/2 and 6 months. It was absolutely the perfect place for us! The condo is right in town where there are tons of restaurants, the bank and the supermarket, and it is only a 2 minute walk to the beach. There is a large fenced yard and a pool that was plenty big enough for us all to enjoy. There are 4 other rental units in the complex but the soundproofing between them is excellent - we heard more from the howling monkeys than our neighbors!
The condo is not opulent, but it is modern, comfortable, clean and convenient. Carla, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with and made every effort to ensure we would enjoy our stay. When the internet stopped working shortly before our planned trip, she went the extra mile and got wifi installed before our arrival. She always responded right away to emails - before, during and after our stay.
This condo is great with kids because it is simply decorated without lots of knickknacks to worry about. Also, although there is one flight to climb to get to the front door, once you are inside the unit there are no stairs.
As you can tell, Carla's home really served our needs perfectly and I would strongly recommend it.
