Samara Rentals is the property management company for my beach house in Playa Samara, Costa Rica. Melissa and David offer great customer service, to both me and to my clients. I have never had a problem that they have not taken care of to all of our satisfaction. My clients rave about how helpful they are, which is important when clients are only renting the house for a few days.

The house is always cleaned and ready to go before check-in, and promptly serviced when they vacate. Everything from the bedding, floors, porches and furniture are set up appropriately. When our clients check in, they are given a brief tour of the home and where to locate the important items. They also give tell them of the local items that they typically would want to know- restaurants, shopping stores, adventures, etc. So clients are just not left at the house knowing nothing about the home or the area. This is very helpful.

I feel Melissa and David go above and beyond what is normally offered by most property management companies. They work long hours and (it seems) just about every day of the year! I was very concerned about the distance and ability to work with a company that is so far away. We all know that timely communication is important for owners who live out of Costa Rica, but Melissa is so quick with her email replies, that this just isn’t a problem.

I am glad to have Samara Rentals manage my beach house, and would recommend them to anyone in the area who has the same needs as I have.

Vacaciones maravillosas

Hemos pasado unos días en Casa Pacífica y han sido maravillosos. La casa es preciosa, todos hemos disfrutado de la piscina tan bonita y de los jardines. El comedor para 10 personas estupendo, podíamos cenar toda la familia junta, y la cocina muy bien equipada, la mejor de todas las casas que he rentado hasta el momento. Los dormitorios y los baños muy bonitos y cómodos. No se me ocurre nada que no me haya gustado de la casa, salvo quizá poner una cortina más gruesa en el dormitorio principal del ala derecha. Gracias a Melissa por su maravillosa atención y a Giselle por lo bien que ha cuidado de nosotros estos días. Gracias por todo Paul, seguro repetiremos la experiencia!!!

the property owner, was wonderful and easy to communicate with and Melissa, the in-town property manager, was wonderful as well. Stay here - you'll be happy you did!! We can't wait to go back.

The house itself is large and well equipped for cooking. We used the gas grill a couple times. The local property managers David & Melissa, are great to deal with and quickly dealt with any issues that arose. We enjoyed several of the beach restaurants.

The manager Melissa was super responsive. We couldn't get the internet to work when we first arrived and she had the technician out there to take care of it even though it was 7pm on Friday night.

I have visited many of Costa Rica's beautiful beaches and Samara is now my favorite. I credit Samara's natural beauty and a great experience with Melissa and David at Samara Rentals. Melissa was lovely to work with from the first contact. She found me the home that met all of our requirements and answered all of my questions promptly. David was extremely friendly and helpful and gave us info about tours and made excellent restaurant recommendations. The experience was top notch and I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking to rent a beach house!

I can well recommend Melissa from the Samara Rentals to anyone interested in having a professional property manager. Melissa has been the administrator in our condo project in Samara and every one of us tenants has been 100% satisfied with her work.

Samara Rentals is amazing! A few of us were in Samara Costa Rica last summer and after visiting a few other places for a long term rental, we stumbled upon them. Melissa arranged a wonderful house for us directly on the beach. They were always responsive to any concern we had. Definite A+


Just spent a month in Casa Tortuga the home is exactly as the pictures show. The home is well equipped with all the essentials you might need. The area is awesome close enough to town but far enough away to enjoy your privacy and peace and quiet (only the sounds of nature to keep you company). Amazing restaurants like El Suenio tropical just out the gates (1/4 mile to the right ) will make you feel right at home. This is our third year to this area and would highly recommend it for your stay in Gunacastle. The owner Kelly was more than helpful with all our needs and property manager Melissa and Dave where right on top of all our needs. Playa Carrillo is a truly beautiful beach cant wait to be back.


Melissa and David do a fabulous job looking after our house and clients who stay there, they are a rare find!
