Located on the Pacific coast of southern Guanacaste, Costa Rica, 1.5 - 2 hour drive from Liberia International Airport and just 5 minutes walk from two of Costa Rica's most pristine and safe beaches, Playa Samara and Playa Carrillo.
This Montelaguna Residence offers 2 large bedrooms with ceiling fans and air conditioning, the master with an ensuite bathroom and the guest room with an adjacent bathroom. Enjoy creating meals in this modern and fully equipped kitchen. The dining room and living room open to a large terrace overlooking the lagoon and the pool, perfect for dining under the stars.
This modern condo offers WiFi, satellite TV, private parking with a security guard 24 hrs a day and weekly cleaning service.
Playa Samara offers many activities including bicycling, horseback riding, kayaking, fishing and yoga. The white sand beach is the perfect place to relax with a book, watch diving pelicans or play with the kids. A short paddle offshore lies a coral reef where snorkelers can view colorful fish and other marine life. You can even take a gyrocopter ride over the beautiful beaches. The Werner Sauter Biological Reserve, which is right behind Playa Samara, is home to various species of plants and animals including howler monkeys, various types of birds, and coati's.
A brand new restaurant has just opened at Montelaguna Boutique Hotel, which shares the same estate property with our Residence. The town of Samara also has numerous dining opportunities, many right along the beach. There are a number of shops with gifts, handmade items and several excellent yoga instructors at Samara or Carrillo.
I am Natalia. My family loves Costa Rica and we are glad to be able to share our place with visitors. There is so much to do there - relaxing on the beach, surfing or swimming, bird-watching, hiking, kayaking, practicing yoga, dancing and more.
Natalia purchased this apartment in 2013
The apartment is about a five minute walk to two of Costa Rica's most pristine and safe beaches, Playa Samara and Playa Carrillo. The town of Samara is within 20-25 min walk along the beach. You can also take the public modern bus that stops just in front of Montelaguna or call a taxi.
My husband and I just finished a month's stay at Montelaguna Residence in the beautiful Carillo and Samara area. We rented unit #23. Just look at the posted photos. It is REALLY that beautiful here. And this condo is located right between two fantastic beaches. It just takes a few minutes to walk to either one. It has the benefit of being close to two small towns, while it offers the privacy and quiet of being away from town, plus the security of being gated. The view from the balcony day or night is breath taking. Speaking of which, the balcony is a generous size. I have described it to friends like living in a treehouse. This unit is well supplied with all you need. It is very clean, good beds, good kitchen. The owner of this unit and her manager could not have been more helpful to us. I highly recommend it.
Stayed January 2015, traveled as a couple.
We stayed for nine days at Montelaguna and found it an excellent home base. Laurie took great care of us upon arrival. We spent time in the pool and on the deck everyday. The two bedroom set up, each with its own fully-equipped bathroom, worked very well. Kitchen was also easy to work in and we cooked in most nights. The beds were great, and it cooled down at night so we never even had to turn on the air conditioning.
The apartment is about 5 minutes walk from Playa Carillo and about 10 minute walk from Playa Samana (both are beautiful beaches!). Town is about a 4 minute drive or about 40 minute walk along the beach. We liked Samara a lot and quickly found our way around the place. A bonus being a little higher and out of town is that nights were quiet and there were no mosquitoes or other bugs to deal with.
Playa Carillo and Samara's beaches are calmer than the more surfing-oriented ones to the North and South. Offsetting that, it is much easier to get out and about from Samara to do day trips and excursions (we had three great ones), as the roads quickly get more difficult to traverse heading north and south along the shore.
I would book the apartment with confidence - it is as easy and comfortable to live in as it looks, and the town and beaches and people were delightful in Samara!
Our stay was great! Laura met us when we checked in and answered any questions we had. The rental has everything you need. The pool is great, we drove to Samara and Playa Carrillo. Playa Carrillo was stunning. Several good and affordable restaurants in Samara: we recommend Flor de Coco for ceviche and Sheriff Rustic for breakfast. The rental was very clean, the a/c worked great even though we didn't need it very much since we kept the windows open and the ceiling fans on. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Highly recommend!
We spend about 8 days in" Montelaguna Residence" and really enjoyed it. Convenient location, quiet surrounding, beautiful nature, very close to nice beaches. Kitchen is fully equipped, swimming pool is very clean, many restaurants in Samara are in the distance of 10 min. driving distance only.
This is a comfortable well maintained two bedroom condo. The kitchen is well equipped. The master bedroom has a comfortable king sized bed and en suite. The guest bedroom and full bathroom are on the other side of the living area , ensuring privacy for you and your guests. One of the highlights is morning coffee on the balcony overlooking the laguna. The complex is within easy walking distance of both Playa Carrillo ( our favorite) and Playa Samara. There is a well maintained swimming pool right next to the building. There is also an Italian Restaurant at the Monte Laguna Boutique Hotel located on the property. On arrival we were met by Laura, the property manager who was friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The village of Samara is about a thirty five minute walk along the beach. I would recommend yoga classes taught by Danni from Body, Mind and Soul. Brenda and Christopher at the Samara Info Centre are a great source of information for tours, activities and travel advice. This was our second stay at Monte Laguna and we would highly recommend it
Enjoyed our stay, easy walking or driving to two nice beaches. 90s every day, and Samara is unique
The complex , grounds and pool are all very well maintained, the condo was clean, well stocked kitchen, very comfortable beds and only a 5 minute walk to beautiful Playa Carillo (and a maybe 15 minute walk to Playa Samara). Natalia was very easy to deal with, as was the caretaker at the property too.
We enjoyed every moment!
