Plaza Samara is a beautiful building w/ spacious grounds. A two minute walk to the beach, in the heart of town, yet private.

Comfortably decorated, wifi connected, washer and dryer, 4 air conditioners and very close to market, & restaurants.

Dr. Freddy, the town doctor, owns the cornerstone unit facing the street for his private practice.

Complete with it own off shore island, Samara is one of the prettiest, coconut lined beach, I've ever seen. It's gentle waves making ocean play suitable for the family and beginning surfers.

About Carla Winter, owner or Nick Jonsson property manager

Greetings. We're Richard & Carla owners of Plaza Samara, unit #3. We love Samara Beach. We live in the San Francisco Bay Area when not in Samara. The rest of the time we rent out the space. We reserve the right to be careful and selective to who we rent. This is our home, and we've spent many years making it just the way we want it. We want you to enjoy & treasure it and the magic of Samara too.

Carla Winter, owner or Nick Jonsson property manager purchased this Condo in 2004

Why Carla Winter, owner or Nick Jonsson property manager chose Sámara

When we arrived at Samara Beach it was love at first sight. The town and beach was everything we ever dreamed of in a tropical beach paradise. We bought the property before it was built, just a vacant lot w/ a blueprint and a prayer. We are grateful that the project completed and the property is now thriving. We are planning to be spending more time here. In between those times, we like to rent to appreciative guests.

                                                              Great central spot for exploring Samara with kids!

                                                              Great place in the middle of Samara which has everything you need. We were with a 4 year old and he loved the pool in the morning. The central location makes exploring Samara super easy and the bank and supermarket are literally next door. The beach is down the main street and is beautiful. Again, the surf was perfect for our 4 year old who loved using the boogie board that came with the place. Cooking was easy as well as everything was provided. If you’re looking for the place, it is on the corner of the main street to the beach and the road to Nosara. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, thanks for providing everything we needed for a great stay!

                                                              I am especially happy that the 4 year old used the boogie board to play in the surf. I bought it last year with that hope in mind. The joy of a child is unsurpassed. Pura Vida! Carla, owner

                                                              Great unit for a family!

                                                              Had a superb time with our 3 and 6yo kids. It was quiet, clean, and approximately 100 yards from the beach. The private pool, outdoor shower, and adjacent gazebo were really nice in being able to rinse off saltwater and as an alternative to the ocean for the little ones. Within one minute walk from numerous cafés, restaurants, and supermarkets. All appliances worked well although the master bedroom AC was finicky. The unit owner communicated well and was responsive to concerns and needs. We would return again in a heartbeat-a lovely unit in a fantastic little beach town.

                                                              Fantastic condo, had everything we needed and we had the pool to ourselves all week!

                                                              Great location, would love to come back if our travels bring us back to Samara.

                                                              Great Stay!

                                                              A great place to enjoy all that Samara has to offer!

                                                              Our family of 5 really enjoyed staying at Carla's condo. It was perfectly laid out and in a very desirable and secure location. We could walk around town, to the beach, the grocery store with ease and found ourselves immersed in the wonders of this bustling yet laid back surf town. There was everything one could need and more at the condo, and the property manager was more than helpful and friendly. I recommend this condo to anyone interested in taking in the Samara area!!!
