What Past Guests Are Saying
This place was a must Stay--amazing!
I stayed here for five nights in early June with my husband, my sister, and her partner, and I can not recommend any place any higher than I would La Villa Blanca. This place is truly amazing, the owners are utterly fantastic, and Samara is well worth the trip. The Villa itself was clean, comfortable, and has all necessary amenities and comforts of home--a/c in bedroom, well-equipped kitchen with new appliances, washer-dryer, internet, pool (complete with poolside iguana), great outdoor living space, a safe, and (for those who really need it) cable tv. The owners, Monika and Quinn, are beyond compare-responding quickly to all email correspondence leading up to the trip, offering suggestions for things to see and do around Samara--Carrillo beach, zipline tours, kayaking, surfing, etc.--and responding to any issues that may arise with the Villa quickly. Moreover, the Villa is a 3 minute walk from the beach in Samara, a more rustic town than neighboring Montezuma and one with more character (and which has better restaurants). There is plenty to see and do here, for both individuals just seeking a good vacation spot and families with small children. For anyone looking for a relaxing get away, this Villa is unparalleled. My recommendation is, quite simply, stay here!

Great place to relax
We (2 persons) stayed at La Villa Blanca from Dec. 9th-16th. The house is beautiful, located in the middle or S?mara just 2 minutes walk to the beach. Everything was clean and nicely furnished, with a big american style kitchen and enough space to relax and enjoy the sun. Additionally, Quinn and Monika gave us very helpful information on restaurants, Canopy and surfing (thanks for that). Overall, La Villa Blanca is a wonderful place to stay.
We can't wait to go back!
La Villa Blanca is an absolute perfect vacation rental in every way! First, the location is excellent. Samara is a relatively small beach town only an hour and a half drive from Liberia. There are with plenty of restaurants within walking distance of the house as well as a market and an amazing little bakery just inside town. If you plan to cook a lot at the house (which we did), stop at the Maxi Bodega in Nicoya as you drive to Samara for all your necessities. Also inside town is Wingnuts Canopy Tour, they are a great family owned business and the zip lines have amazing views!
Once you arrive at La Villa Blanca you completely fall in love with it. (It is even better in person than in the pictures!) The house is clean, comfortable, quiet and most importantly nice and cool (you don't even need the aC most days). The kitchen is fabulous and having a grill was great. The pool was clean and well maintained. The best part was all of the animals you got to watch during the day. There is a squirrel that likes to hollow out the coconuts in the front tree every morning, a praying mantis that lived on the hammock for a couple of days and the biggest iguanas I have ever seen on the roof!
During our stay, there were several very rainy days due to a tropical storm, and we had a couple of eletrical problems because of all of the rain. Quinn and Monika would arrive to the house within minutes of us calling and the problems were fixed within an hour.
Overall our stay at La Villa Blanca was even better than we expected. After just a couple of days we felt like we had lived there forever! We can't wait to go back!

Relaxing week at La Villa Blanca
La Villa Blanca is visually pleasing, fashionably uncomplicated, clean and comfortable. The location, while centrally located to the village, restaurants and beaches, still felt remote and private. The photos on the website are an accurate description what what you will experience. We highly recommend this property. It is a wonderful find!

a tranquil paradise
Villa Blanca in Samara is the perfect escape for anyone looking to get away and just 'shut down' for a week. There were four of us staying at the villa and we all felt perfectly spoiled in the villa.
The villa had everything to make you feel at home (great kitchen, 2 washrooms, washer, dryer, filtered water)and also to make you feel a little extra special as well (the incredible patio, pool, and being steps away from one of the best beaches in costa rica). Relax and Enjoy!!!
We had a wonderful stay in La Villa Blanca. The villa is located extremely close to the beach and our favorite bar. Can't beat that! The pool was clean and fresh, the deck is magnificent! Inside you'll find a clean, comfortable place to relax after a day exploring Samara. I've been to Tamarindo, Nosara, Flamingo, etc and Samara beats them all hands down. What a cool little town. If you're thinking of staying in Samara this is the place. Beats all the hotels. And it has a grill! The villa is quiet and cool at night. Walking home to this place you begin to imagine living there. It's certainly one of my favorite places to stay in Costa Rica. Enjoy! We'll be back no doubt.
A Home away from Home!
La Villa Blanca, Samara is an amazing house in an amazing location.
I have just returned from my 10 day stay at La Villa Blanca and can not say enough about the great experience.
The house is beautifully clean with all the amenities of home - including cold filtered water in the fridge! It's central location made it incredibly easy to shop for groceries or go out to one of the many fantastic restaurants in Samara.
The house is a one block walk to the beach which made it so easy to visit the beach and jump in the surf each day. But, by far the best place to spend the day was resting in the beautiful pool at the house. The pool was cold, clean and refreshing with both sun and shade available throughout the day.
Costa Rica is known for it's abundance in wildlife and you can find almost all if right in Samara so no need to travel far to enjoy the beauty of the country. We saw Iguanas, Monkeys, Geckos and lots of birds.
Staying in La Villa Blanca, there is no need to venture far to enjoy all that Costa Rica has to offer.
I highly recommend this house!
The Best Kept Secret In Samara
La Villa Blanca is a gorgeous home just blocks from the beach in the sleepy
beach town of Samara. This home is beautifully remodeled and the furnishings
are simple, and stylish. The home was clean and bug free, which is a HUGE
deal in Costa Rica. The patio and pool area are absolutely wonderful and
private. We are dreaming of the day we can return to La Villa Blanca.
Blenheim, Ontario, Canada
You see rentals on the Internet all the time, but this was better than we expected. There was four of us, 2 couples and we enjoyed the house and pool, the BBQ was great. It felt like home. The only negative would be the shear draperies in the bedrooms, it lets the afternoon heat in and the street light shone in at night.
Great place to relax in style, quiet, private and close to all the great spots.
LA VILLA BLANCA!!!
What a treat! Worth every single penny!!!
Arriving in Liberia was worth the trip alone... slick little airport.
The drive from Liberia to Samara is gorgeous; the road is newly paved and the drive is very easy. We rented one way hires to and from, the day of departure and arrival (rates were reasonable, about $90cdn each way). Very, very convenient; Budget has a location in Samara about 5 minutes walk from La Villa Blanca.
Samara is beautiful. The surrounding area is stunning as well, but the beach is insane. Was not prepared for that. Costa Rica has bylaws preventing construction within 50 meters of high tide... basically every beach is tree lined, untouched and spectacular. I was truly surprised. Again, what a treat!!!
All that aside, the biggest and best treat of our stay was, without question, La Villa Blanca!!!!!! The location, the pool, the decor, the amenities, the sheets, the pillows, the outdoor shower, the air conditioning, the garden!!!!
It felt as though we were staying in a Costa Rican editorial of next month's issue of Architectural Digest! Once again, what a @#@$@%@@ treat!!!!!!!
An Exceptional Property in Paradise
We stayed at the beautiful La Villa Blanca over New Years. This was our first trip to Costa Rica and you cannot help but fall in love with the country and its people. The weather is perfect, the landscape is stunning and you feel very comfortable as a tourist here.
La Villa Blanca is clearly one of the best places to stay in Samara. It is beautiful, well-equipped and perfectly located. The house and property are very clean. Some of the highlights for us included the gorgeous teak furniture, well-equipped kitchen, comfy beds, rain shower in the bathroom, outdoor shower, the most refreshing pool and fabulous outdoor barbecue and dining area. Upscale finishings and appliances are better than we have at home! La Villa Blanca is just a few minutes walk to the beach, grocery store, shops and great local restaurants.
The town of Samara is very pretty, with good eats, mellow vibe and no large resorts or cruise ships to be seen. The locals and ex-pats are friendly and helpful. Samara beach is truly paradise - warm water, sandy bottom, shallow as it goes out from the beach, perfect for swimming and learning to surf. We took surfing lessons at the C&C Surf School and highly recommend doing this because it was so much fun! The beach at sunset was stunningly beautiful, this is the perfect place to rejuvenate and relax. New Years Eve was spectacular - bonfires along the horseshoe-shaped beach and fireworks set off at midnight made for a surreal and fun night! If you rent a car, there is also lots to do in the surrounding area. Our day trips included a waterfall/cliff jumping, ziplining with friends (soooo much fun!!) and visits to other beautiful beaches nearby along the coast.
All in all, this is a beautiful place to visit and the perfect way to do it. La Villa Blanca is exceptional. We were surprised how much more fun it is to rent a house, it provides the privacy and freedom that you just can't find at a resort. We loved it and cannot say enough to recommend it!
