About Dean Fraser

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.

Dean Fraser purchased this condo in 2009

Why Dean Fraser chose Guanacaste

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.

Perfect relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time during our three week stay in Samara. We were a family of four, with two teenagers. The condo was absolutely perfect for our needs--plenty of space with an open layout, a ten minute walk to two different beaches (Carillo and Samara), everything we needed to cook, and a huge DVD and book collection for rainy periods and the early nightfall. Plus we got to watch troops of howler monkeys on two different occasions in the trees across from the outdoor patio and around the pool! (Being on the second floor is perfect for bird and monkey watching, and the views of the surrounding hills and sunsets are spectacular.) Both the kayaking to the Isla Chora and the zipline company are also in walking distance, and the pool was perfectly maintained--nice for hot days! Since we had such a long stay, we rented a car, and the drive into Samara is only a few minutes and the road is great. That was not true of other properties in the area that we had considered--so glad we went with this one.

Dean and the property manager, Laura, had great suggestions and were quick to respond to any of our needs or questions.

Montelaguna Property

  • 5 of 5

This was my first trip to Costa Rica and the luxurious condominium felt warm and inviting the minute I walked through the door. Beautifully hand crafted wooden furniture in each of the 3 bedrooms with new bedding and air conditioning. We each had our own bathroom equipped with new towels. The open concept kitchen is very large and comes with everything you would have in your own home, plus more! There is a safe to keep your personal items such as passports. The extra large deck facing the beautiful private pool has a marble table with 6 chairs and matching recliners. Choose the elevator or stairwell to your condo. I would recommend this condominium in a heartbeat. The property is beautifully landscaped with workers maintaining the grounds daily. There are rental bikes available to ride the short distance to town or the beautiful beaches. These property owners have thought of everything to make your stay comfortable and luxurious. Samara is a small quaint friendly town with very kind locals. Plenty of restaurants on the beach, grocery, hardware, bakery, souvenir, clothing stores are all located in Samara. Tourist information provides plenty of tours and activities. I can't wait to go back!

Staying at this condo was a great experience for me. Felt like we were at our own home, very welcoming. The beds are very comfortable, air conditioning worked great. Fridge had an ice maker which kept our beverages cool with also a water filter system. There was plenty to do including many dips in the pool daily. Short distance to town to explore and buy trinkets. The coffee was great every morning on the balcony overlooking the mountain near by. The beaches were clean and warm. Great stay for anyone wanting to explore!

Primo Property

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Montelaguna Residence on February 1st, 2015 and departed March 31st.

This condo unit is one of the most beautifully appointed, well-equipped condos that we have ever had the good fortune to stay in. There is every available kitchen utensil, bath towels or any other amenity you can imagine. The beds are comfortable and the layout of this condo is superb. Because of the beautiful long balcony accessed by the master bedroom, living room and dining room sliding doors, made the use of the air continuing unnecessary. Beautiful stainless steel appliances including an ice-maker water maker fridge which we found quite useful.

Great supply of reading material, movies to watch and cd's to play.

All in all, with the addition of the huge private pool and with the luxury of choosing Samara Beach or Carillo beach which are only a stones throw away, this property was pure bliss.

And for the above reasons, that's why we have already booked this unit for next year!

Excellent home to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed during January 2015 and loved it. The house was completely equipped and it was beautifully comfortable. It had everything and more than we expected. The pool area was nice and the pool was very clean. Carrillo beach at a walking distance, and the center of Samara at 5 minutes away where you can find supermarkets, pharmacy, restaurants, etc. My family really enjoy it.

Excellent Vacation property

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property over New Years 2014/2015. IT was my husband and I and our 4 kids and we found it very spacious. IT is very clean and nicely and comfortably decorated. It was a nice added bonus that there was a bookshelf with books you could borrow and read while there and a DVD player to get the kids out of the sun for an hour in the afternoon on occasion. The kids loved the pool and actually quite liked that it was a shared pool instead of a private one as they met other kids down there to play with. If you prefer the beach it is only a 5 or 10 minute walk down to Samara beach, and the walk to town along the beach is beautiful (although it takes about 45 minutes with 4 kids in tow). The kitchen was by far the best equipped of all the places we stayed in Costa Rica and the appliances were all fairly new and modern. The property owners were very helpful and easy to work with before our stay and the property manager Laura was very helpful during our stay.
