About Martina Abrey-MacKay
We are from Alberta, Canada where my husband teaches high school and I am in healthcare. We have 2 children. We have travelled to many South and Central American countries and after our family spent 6 weeks in Samara in the summer of 2014, we knew this was the place we wanted to continue to come back to. We love the beach and enjoy the balance of activities and relaxation that Samara has to offer. We spend our time surfing and enjoying coconut mojitos.
Martina Abrey-MacKay purchased this Condo in 2014
What makes this Condo unique
This condo is the perfect location. We are close enough to walk to the beach, restaurants, and stores yet far enough away have peace and quiet. The pool and grounds are beautifully maintained and the view from the condos floor to ceiling windows is breathtaking. The beach isn't overcrowded and the ocean is calm enough for the kids to play in and yet still has waves that are great for learning to surf. The area offers both relaxation and adventure options. You can take surf lessons, an ATV tour, canopy tour, nature hikes, dolphin tours, or just sip blended drinks at one of the many beach front dining areas.

The views of Samara bay
The condo worked perfectly for us. You could walk to the beach and to town, easily!
We primarily used the condo for sleeping.
Everything fit all of our needs perfectly, loved the location, we can walk to the beach no car required, if we’re feeling lazy grab a cab for 2000 colonies, doesn’t get any better than that.. the unit fit all of our needs, very clean, comfortable, with the small deck was a bonus, we are outside from sun up to sun down.
Best view we have ever had!
Fantastic 8 night stay in this very comfortable condo with 2 adults and 2 teens. The views are spectacular from this unit. The building is well looked after with 24 hour security (including Chester, the resident dog) and even the pool has incredible views of the ocean. We really enjoyed meeting vacationing Ticos at the pool too. Samara is very close and easy to get to/from along the beach. It was nice to be situated above the town to take advantage of the view.
The condo was as described and the views was great. The pool area was great and the beach was a short walk. We loved the Samara area.
A Lovely Condo in a Great Location for Samara
Stayed for 2 and half weeks with my wife and two kids while attending Spanish lessons in town. Condo is very clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed the ability to walk to the beach in a couple of minutes and walk to town within 10 minutes. The pool was great.
Only caution is to make sure to meet with the property management firm when you arrive and make note of any damage - probably a good rule to follow when renting any property on VRBO. Unfortunately we did not and are now responsible for damages that we did not cause.
Best Condo in Samara - Amazing Views and Well Equipped
Great views, very close to beach and town - super walkable by road or beach. Condo was well equipped, HVAC and WIFI worked great, bed was super comfy (nova foam mattress made me very happy!) Grounds were well kept, very secure - Santo (the guard) and Chester (dog) were always happy to greet us! Booked in 24 hours, Melissa the PM was great. No issues! Thanks Blake & Martina, we left you some umbrellas!
Playa Samara, located about 35 km south of Nicoya, offers a multitude of outdoor activities. You can choose a slow, relaxed pace, strolling along the 5 km crescent shaped strip of sand, considered one of the nicest in Costa Rica, with a reef that protects the beach from strong waves, making it safe for swimmers of all ages. You can sit in one of the beach front restaurants with your feet in the sand sipping your favourite drink while watching the waves roll in. Or, you can choose from the many local adventurous activities such as surfing, snorkeling, kayaking, near shore and deep sea fishing, zip-lining, hiking, caving, mountain biking, bird watching, horseback riding, motorized sport vehicles, bicycle rentals. There are also many day trips available to natural hot springs, volcanoes, white water rafting, and typical villages to watch artisans hone their crafts.
The town of Samara is right on the beach. It is only 3 blocks wide and 2 blocks deep. This still somewhat undiscovered town offers all amenities and services, including full medical and dental, police station, post offices and utility offices. There are two major banks, lots of shopping, and several food stores. There are many typical, international, and beach front restaurants, bars and night life.
