The Space

Located on the beach! Wake up to the waves every morning. This simple, rustic, old school style Tico house consists of 3 apartments. I live in the downstairs unit. This unit is located upstairs facing the jungle. The property has a large fenced in yard. Apartment has an equipped kitchenette with an electric cooktop, coffee maker, blender, toaster, full sized bed and full bath with hot water shower. Internet speed is 3mbps. Not the best. But the best we could do here in Sámara. Air conditioning is not included in the nightly price but is available for an extra $10/night if you wish to use it. Most nights just the ocean breeze is sufficient to keep you comfortable. Can be booked together with The Sandbox On-The-Beach Ocean Side (if available) to accommodate 4 people. The house is located in the tropical jungle, you can see quite a bit of wildlife from the property. Howler monkeys visit frequently as well as iguanas, squirrels and many types of birds.

Guest Access

There is a large picnic table outside for guests to use as well as beach chairs and a hammock.

Interaction with Guests

I live on site and do my best to greet you upon arrival. However, sometimes I am not able to meet you in person. I am always available by text or email.

The Neighborhood

Super quiet neighborhood between Samara Centro and Matapalo.

Getting Around

Less than 10 minute walk into Samara Centro, a vehicle is not necessary. But parking is available.

Other Things to Note

Please keep in mind this is a old beach house in the jungle in Costa Rica, not a Ritz Carlton Resort, things are rustic. Geckos, ants (usually just passing through on a mission to somewhere) and other harmless creatures visit frequently, power and water outages can happen from time to time. It's part of the Pura Vida charm. So pull up a beach chair, leave your expectations behind and enjoy the sunset!

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.

Place's rules

We ask that guests observe quiet hours between 10pm-7am. Please treat the apartment as if it were your own home. If something breaks, please let me know so it can be replaced. An information card is provided inside the apartment. Please read this upon arrival. It's very helpful to you. Costa Rica is a developing/third world country. Please leave behind any first world expectations. We recycle and seperate trash. Bins are provided. Please separate recycling and trash and put in proper bins. Please separate organic and non organic trash. Organic trash goes in the wooden compost bin in the backyard. Non organic trash goes in the trash bin provided. Lots of our guests love dogs but others don't. Please don't feed the dogs and please do not allow them into the apartments. Laundry service is available for $10/load. It can usually be finished in 24 hours. If you choose to add on air conditioning, please do not leave it on when you are not in the apartment. This is an old building with poor insulation. The a/c units are not meant to be left on all day. They are to be used when you are inside the apartment. Please, help to conserve energy. Beach chairs and hammocks are provided for your use. Please don't leave them out in the rain or on the beach overnight!! Please don't leave valuables unattended outside. Bookings longer than 10 days will have weekly cleaning included. If you wish to have the unit cleaned more frequently, it can be arranged for a fee. Please rinse sandy feet off in the outdoor shower before entering the apartment. Electric showers are very common in Costa Rica. If the shower is on, the electricity is on. DO NOT attempt to change the water temperature on the shower head while the shower is on. You will get shocked. It's mild. But, you will get shocked. Turkish bath towels provided are for shower use only, please do not take them or the bed sheets to the beach. Provided linens are not to be taken out of the apartment. Beach towels are not provided but are available to purchase in town. Sometimes I may have some to borrow. Just ask!
