About the property

Beautiful Condo in modern Resort. Suit Singles or Couples with 1- 2 Children.

Comfortable and cozy condo within walking distance to Playa Samara and Playa Carrillo. Perfect for a couple or a couple with 2 small children as it has a pullout sofabed in the living area. The apartment is situated in MonteLaguna Resort, rated as 'excellent'. Built in 2010 and features on site security, on site parking, large pool and deck, children's play area, beautiful view of the lagoon, and its own water system. The condo is located on the second floor (There is an elevator) and features a spacious bedroom with a good sized eat-in balcony, flat screen TV and WiFi Internet, shower with separate toilet, ceiling fans and A/C.

Samara and Carrillo are small coastal towns, very laid-back, and offering PURA VIDA. Recently, Samara was rated number 2 in the top 10 beachs in Central America. There is a clinic with an English-speaking doctor, pharmacies, churches, banks, DVD shop, post office, grocery stores, many restaurants and bars, tour agencies, car rental and a police station. There is also a Spanish language school in the town.

Just 45 minutes away is Nicoya, a rather large city, with most everything you could need, including a hospital. Multiple activities are available including swimming, fishing, surfing, snorkeling, hiking, horseback riding, cycling, golfing, rafting, kayaking, wildlife and bird watching and miniature golf. However you can always just relax by the beautiful pool while enjoying the peaceful green surroundings.

Perfect for 3 days!

  • 4 of 5

Condo was perfect for the 3 days we were there. Any longer, and we would have stayed in Samara so we were closer to everything. Lots of bugs and some of the lights didn't work properly. Other than that, it served its purpose! Pool was great!!!

Owner's Response: Hi Shellia, I am glad the condo was perfect for your stay. For people who MUST be in the center of Samara, this is not the place, but for others who appreciate security, peaceful quiet place with beautiful surroundings, our condo is the best! The lights issue is easily addressed (we ask that you tell the Manager immediately) and there are bugs OUSIDE the building. After all, we have great natural environment :-) Best wishes. Raif

Quiet, comfortable condo with a nice pool

  • 4 of 5

Quiet, comfortable condo with a nice pool and friendly neighbors. It is not really great walking to the beach with kids (narrow road, 1/2 mile walk) so best that you have a car. Towels were provided which was nice but we could have used another couple blankets. Carrillo beach was beautiful and samara was busier but fun for surfing and kayaking.

Owner's Response: Hi Jacquelyn, Thank you for staying with us. I am glad you guys enjoyed Playa Carrillo as well as Samara. The pool is always a hit especially with the children. I agree that having a car is a plus especially when you have kids. Hope to see you back soon! Raif

Smooth Beginning and Ending Process

  • 5 of 5

The Owner was very easy to work with and provided quick responses and helpful information.

Note: I did not actually rent or see the unit. I did reserve the unit but had to cancel due to change in plans (not related to unit). The Owner quickly handled the cancellation process according to the policy that was in place at the time of reservation. He was very gracious and wished me well. The reservation and cancellation processes were both very smooth with no issues. I appreciate the quality of service. Wishing the Owner well!
