Spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean from the living room of this secure gated condominium. Located in Playa Samara. Enjoy the lush tropical landscape, and the abundant wildlife as you walk just a few minutes to the beach. Once at the beach you may enjoy the many activities Samara has to offer such as kayaking out to an island off the coast where you can snorkel, swim, or just relax.

Go horseback riding on the beach, or take a longer trek up the mountain. Take a surf lesson, charter a boat for fishing or sightseeing, rent a bike for a ride along the beach.

Condo Veneto is in walking distance to the town center where you will find restaurants, bars grocery stores, bakery, pharmacy, bank, doctor, internet, massage, yoga and several clothing/souvenir stores.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Joe & Mark

You have a beautiful place in paradise! Samara & Carrillo beaches are spectacular. Having beach chairs to take down was very nice. The pool here is the nicest we've seen in Samara although the shade is minimal. We got in a routine of spending late morning and early afternoon at the beach in the shade of palm trees with a nice breeze. Then we would return here to use the pool before dinner. A couple times we carried the chaises to the pool area. They are so much more comfortable than the plastic chaises.

It has been so relaxing, getting back to our "real lives" won't be easy. Our favorite food was at Coco's.

The sunsets are spectacular. We enjoyed star gazing at night on the lanai and feel sorry for those that don't have one.

Thank you for the wonderful time!

Karen & Ron

Perfect stay in Samara

  • 5 of 5

The condo couldn't have been better. It was spotless, had everything we needed to cook and enjoy the beach, pool and a fabulous view! The condo was quite roomy, bed comfortable and stocked with an abundance of kitchen items, movies, music, towels, and beach toys. The balcony was wonderful. Large enough to have a meal at the little table and enjoy the view at all times. The pool was a great size, pool chairs very comfortable and you could relax in the pool with a great view of the ocean. It really was a 5 minute walk to the beach. Samara is a nice small beach town with lots of restaurants and enough in the grocery stores to supply everything one needs. Nick was so helpful and made our entry and exit so easy. I would highly recommend this condo.

Wonderful view

  • 5 of 5

Without a doubt the main attraction of this condo is the view - fantastic! The unit was clean and comfortable, and the kitchen stocked with every utensil, pot, and pan we needed. Another nice feature was the small deck overlooking the pool. It held two people comfortably, but would be pretty small for more than two. Many of the units in this complex don't have a deck at all, so we felt fortunate, and we ate most of our meals outside. We had a problem with the wireless, but the property manager took care of it promptly.

The only downside to this condo for some might be the walk back up the hill from the beach. It didn't bother my husband and I (age 63), but I feel that I should mention it. The view we got from being up higher was worth it. The walk into town either by beach or road was easy, although you need to be vigilant on the road.

Well equipped, great location with a view

  • 5 of 5

This condo was one of the best we've stayed at. Fantastic view, very clean condo and welcoming staff. The condo was also well stocked and gated for security. A five minute walk to the beach. Very nice pool with lots of birds and iguanas visiting during the day and a nice place to cool off in the evening.

Only the first floor units have decks. This is one of them that overlooks the pool. Restaurant at the end of the path/road to the beach was excellent.

The condo was as described in photos and literature.

Great Week

  • 5 of 5

Loved this place, especially the outstanding view. 2 AC's in a 1 bedroom unit that worked perfectly along with everything else. Owner was easy to work with and property manager gave us some good info on the area. Quick easy walk to the beach and not really that bad back up the hill. We had a car and there is great parking and security here. One night after a couple of drinks in the condo we took a taxi out for the night and it was only $2 usd each way so you don't really need a car. If you like movies there is a great dvd collection and a player in the living room and bed room. Pool was really nice and a great place to meet some of the other renters. The bedroom in this unit had no outside walls so it made it perfect for sleeping. Will stay here again next trip.

Second visit for our family to Condo # 4. Great location, short drive to town (supermarket, pharmacy, restaurants, etc.), very well equipped from kitchen to bedroom, A/C worked great in July Samara heat, gorgeous pool in what you would feel is the middle of the jungle.

Perfect Condo for two.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 9 nights in April 2016 It was the most relaxing vacation we have ever taken. It is the perfect getaway for a couple. The Condo had a full kitchen that was very important to us, as we love to cook, we even found a BBQ in the laundry room. A small fish market and butcher shop and fresh produce all walking distance. We had a car and would always rent a car, so you can check out other beaches. The views are second to none. You can stare out the front windows at the Ocean all day. Loved that all the windows opened for a breeze, Nick the host was great, and our pal at the front gate, and of course Chester the dog. We brought our own spices to cook with, super comfy bed. I could write more awesome comments, but back to work now to save money for our return trip.

. I’ll be back, for sure – POOL WAS AMAZING! Thanks Lisa & Chuck
