first time to CR and wanting private accomodation

My husband and I are planning our first trip to Costa Rica in late Oct for 3 weeks. I've been following the forums on TripAdvisor for months. At this point, I'm overwhelmed so if any can help - please do!

We've booked one night at a B&B upon arrival and were thinking of seeing the usual sites for about 3-6 days (Arenal, Cloud Forest, etc.) but then we just want to rent a guest house in the Samara area (I've read the beaches there are some of the calmest and we are not good swimmers).

If possible we'd actually like to rent a house that is 'eco-friendly', solar, etc. but we also need comfort (good beds, CLEAN, etc.).

Can anyone suggest a place to stay in Samara? Or anywhere close by? We would like to be within walking distance of a small town with several restaurants and grocery stores. THANK YOU!

Hi,

Not sure if these are what you're looking for but take a look at this website. Maybe one of them will work out for you.

check this out http://samarabeach.com/

while not and "eco house", we rented here an apartment, and found it quite good:

for best beach, head to Carillo beach, 10 min by car. the "local beach" is okay, but not as nice.

for some fun, visit Don Klaus near the "Flying Crocodile" ultra light club.

Also try www.vrbo.com (Vacation Rentals by Owner).

I have always found all of my vacation rentals from this website.
