Interaction with guests
Hi! My name is Patrick, the owner. I designed and built this property with four condos in 2008. Ever since I've been managing them and making constant improvements to give you - the guest - a world class experience in the sleepy little beach town of Playa Samara. I handle all bookings and payments. Before your stay I introduce you to Laura, the administrator, who will meet you on-site with your keys to present the Condo and staff to you and answer all your questions. It's this type of extra service that makes out guests feel special and continue to book with us. Denis is the on-site caretaker who keeps the property spotless. He'll practice Spanish with you, help you get the grill going, and even source fresh-caught seafood and fish!

About the neighborhood
Playa Samara is a sleepy fishing village that is becoming a very sought after vacation spot by travelers who enjoy experiencing the beauty of Costa Rica along with its culture. This Condo, named condo Catalina, on the 3rd floor of the four floor building named Alta Vista, with spectacular views of the beach and ocean. Playa Samara has a number of smaller pueblos (villages) within it. Alta Vista is located in Cangrejal, or the far North/West end of the bay. A short 15min walk along the beach gets you into the center tourist area of the bay. This location allows you to peacefully reside outside of the hustle bustle but get quickly into and out of the center when desired, while having a far better view than compared to anywhere in town.
Getting around
A short 1.5 block walk to the beach down a flat paved dead end road, and to get to the town center, another 10 minutes along the beach. A bike ride on the road is easy enough, and a car will get you into town center in 2 minutes. Laura, administrator, and Denis, caretaker, can help you book a taxi if you desire - for $3-$4. Iguana Verde is a grocery store/bakery/liquor store/cafe only two blocks up the beach. There are a number of small local eateries/restaurants to enjoy without going into town center.
