“a wonderful self-efficiency stay in Samara”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013

We spent a wonderful month at Boheme Chic - the only negative thing was that the time ended so quickly! Karin is a fantastic, welcoming and helpful hostess, and I can only echo the sentiments shared above about the comfort of the accommodations, and the uniqueness of the location.
We enjoyed being a bit away from the centre of town - the jungle comes right up to the property, with monkeys and a variety of birds on your doorstep. Normally I might be tempted to keep a place like this a secret, but we're already booked for next year, so what the heck...

Room Tip: We rented bicycles from a nearby entrepreneur, got month-long memberships at the gym, and surf lesso...

What a great feeling to be able to enjoy life at the Boheme Chic for five weeks in February/March of 2013, after the Kunterbunt disaster. The small casitas are lavishly equipped with everything one needs to feel comfortable. They are clean and the garden surrounding them offers all kinds of interesting plants and animals.
Karin is very helpful, although at times a bit hard to reach, because she is very busy with her everyday affairs PLUS the construction of her new house. Good luck with this undertaking Karin! I’m sure you will love your new residence!
The BC is far enough from town to be spared much of the noise, yet close enough to take care of the daily business.
At times I just sat in front of the house or strolled around the garden, watching the performances of the howler monkeys and all the different birds.
Should my future travels lead me to Samara again, Boheme Chic will be the first address I will check for an opening!
Thank you very much Karin for making the second half of my stay in Samara such a nice experience!

I stayed at Villas Bohemia Chic for three weeks this past summer and it was absolutely perfect! The Villas are comfortable, welcoming, and spacious. Karin is a wonderful hostess who knows how to be helpful while still allowing you to have your privacy. It was close to several restaurants and the beach. This is the perfect getaway for someone who wants to be in a quiet space, but still close to town. I can't wait to return.

I stayed at Villas Boheme Chic in May of 2012 for a few weeks. Karin is an incredible hostess and has created a beautiful oasis just outside (but very much in walking distance) of town. The villas are well equipped with all of the modern conveniences that you could hope for (full kitchen, hot showers, Wi-Fi) and Karin is fantastic about adding the perfect finishing touches (soft fluffy towels, cozy sheets and blankets, etc...) The villas are clean, comfortable and quiet. Tucked away in a beautiful "jungle" garden, far away from the party atmosphere that can sometimes be Samara, it is the perfect place to stay. Despite the secluded feel of the place, there was never a time that I didn't feel completely safe and this is especially important as I was I was traveling alone. The beauty of the Villas BC is that you only feel secluded because it is so peaceful and quiet, but you are only a few minutes walk from the center of town, so it is the best of both worlds. I would highly recommend Boheme Chic to anyone visiting Playa Samara.

My wife and I stayed in casa #2 here for the month of January, 2012, and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves here. Karin, the owner, greeted us warmly at our arrival and over the period of our stay, we felt like we had made a friend rather than just making the acquaintance of the owner. She was most helpful in giving us local information and in helping us with our individual needs. The place is clean, comfortable and most nights quite quiet. There are only 2 casas available to rent, the third being Karin's main house. We enjoyed many fine days relaxing here and enjoying the hammock and looking out over the gardens. To be honest, our peace and quiet was sometimes disturbed by outside influences, most notably from a half dozen local roosters who feel the need to crow off and on regularly (forget the notion of a rooster only crowing at dawn, these buggers crow 24 hours a day). Also there are rental units behind hers which in the high season can be rented out to large groups of Ticos who are there to party and have a good time, so expect loud voices and music on weekends maybe. Karin has no control over this and I dont fault her or her place. The place is clean and very uniquely designed, the host is as friendly and as helpful as can be, the prices are more than reasonable, and you are within 5 minutes of the beach. What more can you ask for?

We booked on line so we were not sure what to expect, accept for website.
Well, everything was exactly the way it was told on the web and more. The casa fit our needs perfectly. We stayed at the villa for the month of December, very clean and so comfortable.
Karin is so accommodating and lovely. In the morning or when we would return from the beach(which is a really nice walk) we would see Karin and her beautiful smile.
We will be back as soon as possible. No need to look for other lodging the villa is perfect.
