About the property

3 Bedrooms, 3 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5

This is a special little place. It is tucked into a small alcove about 15-20 minutes by foot to the city centre of Samara. From the house you can walk 5-10 minutes to three beaches where you can surf, fish, swim, or go tide pooling. There is also a turtle refuge nearby. There are hiking trails in the hills above only minutes from your doorstep.

The home is well maintained and can accommodate up to 5 people. The master bedroom has a king sized bed and air conditioning for your comfort. The second bedroom has a double bed. The third bedroom will accommodate one person. ALL bedrooms have AC. There are three full bathrooms so no waiting when you are getting ready to go out to one of Samara's many fantastic restaurants.

The home has a swimming pool in a nicely landscaped backyard with mature fruit trees. There are three completely covered breezy patio areas and Parking. The fully equipped kitchen offers the comforts of home. The kitchen/lounge and dining room is an open floor plan with a comfy seating area looking out into the garden through double patio doors. Enjoy using the BBQ poolside.

The only noise that might disturb the peaceful state of Casa Ventura is the call of the Howler Monkey that can be heard during dusk and dawn. If you decide to go for a hike there is a good chance you will see one and can howl 'hello' back to them.

Casa Ventura, Samara remains a well-priced alternative for those wanting to stay near the sea and enjoy the tranquillity of a blossoming town with a low-key vibe.

Comfortable Home With a Pool

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying here. The house was comfortable and the pool was great, especially during the hot and humid afternoons. We saw a lot of wild life, from colorful birds, large frogs, and several monkeys that like to handout in the trees in front of the house. Be prepared for some really bad roads getting to the house from the town of Samara. The last 1/4 mile or so is unpaved (like many roads in Costa Rica) and is covered in potholes. The constant rain does not help matters. The town of Samara is fabulous as were the Ticos that we encountered there. Wonderful time!

Private and Comfortable Property

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Casa Ventura! It is a great little house with an amazing little backyard. Very private backyard which offered shade and a lovely little swimming pool to cool off in.

Samara itself has a lovely beach with great snorkelling within the volcanic rock area and very friendly, helpful people. We would definitely return to this lovely little hideaway some day!

Some sort of transportation whether it be a car, bike, motor bike or quad is definite plus when staying at Casa Ventura.

Thank you to Erin and Drew for allowing us to stay in their home! Wonderful experience!

Where to begin?!! The house is perfect, has everything you can possibly need to make your stay wonderful. It was close to the beach, downtown (restaurants/bars/grocery store etc) and we loved the area it was in.

The experience of being in this home for our vacation gave us a true feel of being in Costa Rica. We were a family of 4 and we felt completely safe and it was easy to get around.

The owners of the house are wonderful people and we would encourage everyone to consider renting this beautiful home. Thank you for a memorable vacation - we will definitely be back!! Pura Vida

Beautiful open concept villa in a safe quiet location

  • 5 of 5

The owners happened to be there when we arrived and welcomed us with a run down on where to eat and what do while we were in Samara. The villa was very spacious with AC and ceiling fans which made is very enjoyable. Enough space to have your privacy and the neighbours are friendly, most who know the owners well which makes it feel like a very safe location. Some mornings near the pool area if you looked up in the trees in the distance you could see monkeys swinging in the trees :). Samara truly is truly a special and quaint place in Costa Rica, with relaxing beaches where people do NOT hassle you to buy things, adorable dogs walking the beach, and locals who will give you directions and eagerly help you with whatever you need. The restaurants nearby were delicious, one to keep in mind if you are staying at this villa is a restaurant just a few minutes walk down the road called "Samara Pacific Lodge". Samara is a perfect balance between tourist and local. It was a pleasure to stay at Casa Ventura...thank you to the friendly owners.

Fabulous peaceful Villa in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Three days of wonderful relaxation at the Casa Ventura , we loved the huge open concert living area two air conditioned en suite bedrooms and additional private pool side (with AC) guest house , lovely comfortable hammocks on back patio , lime trees overhanging the driveway, awesome & totally privately secluded pool , great quality bicycles on site . if you happen to be there on a Wednesday or Saturday the German bakery truck passes by with the best fresh breads and cakes plus . Just a 5 min bike ride to Buena Vista beach for sunset swims and morning runs .This was a highlight of our 6 week stay in Samara and felt very fortunate to have found this place and that it was available
