This house is located about 15 minutes from Playa Samara. We have been to Playa Samara 3 times. Playa Samara is wonderful and one of my favorite beaches I have ever been to. There is nice natural shade and the water is fun to learn to surf in. There are a wide variety of restaurants and activities in the area. The house itself is very comfortable and spacious and has all of the amenities you need, with the exception of reliable internet or satellite TV. It is located on a hill with a nice view and cross breezes. There was hot water, A/C in the bedrooms and ceiling fans everywhere. We saw howler monkeys just down the road one morning and heard them every day. The architecture of the house is interesting and its very private and has beautiful gardens. We (two adults and one teenager) were very comfortable there.
