Your own tropical paradise. Our home has its own private gated drive right off of a paved easy access road. There is a lot of land, a creek and many trees to view Costa Rica wildlife at its best right on the property. Wake up every morning to amazing mountain views. We are only a 12 minute drive from Samara up in the mountains. It is nice and quiet and cool and refreshing after a day at the beach. We are ony a five minute drive from the large beautiful waterfall in near Belen. Our home has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. The master bedroom has its own bathroom and private balcony. The private pool with views of the mountains is very refreshing in the afternoon. In the mornings enjoy the parakeets and howler monkeys as you view them from the terrace.

About Heidi Hudson
I am a married mother of 7 children. My husband and I live in the midwest and hate the cold. We travel to Costa Rica as often as we can and spend at least 3 months at a time there. We love the people in Costa Rica and the many friends we have made. We plan on moving to Costa Rica permanently in the next few years. We hope you love Costa Rica as much as we do and we are happy to be able to share our home with you.
Heidi Hudson purchased this House in 2015
Why Heidi Hudson chose Sámara
After searching for several years for affordable vacation properties to purchase in Costa Rica, we finally found a dream come true. We love this area of Costa Rica for its beautiful beaches and close amenities. We also love its close proximity to beaches, restaurants, airports, volcanoes and much more. Our property is very private and has enough land for plentiful wildlife and our children to roam.
What makes this House unique
The beautiful mountain views from the pool and the terrace are what made us fall in love with our home. Our children love to hike up the mountain stream running through our property. We love picking bananas and plantains from the trees that line our drive from the gate up to our house. There are parakeets to watch every morning and howler monkeys to see throughout the day. We love the cooler temperatures that our mountain home's elevation provides in the evenings and mornings but yet we are only minutes from world class surfing, fishing and safe swimming beaches with tide pools.

I broke the cardinal rule of renting on VRBO and booked a 3-night stay in a house that did not have any reviews. I booked solely based on the pictures and description provided and I will not make that mistake in the future. I arrived at the house and left very shortly thereafter to find another place to stay while visiting Samara. The home is rustic, austere and drab. Apparently, no one has stayed/lived here in quite a while because the smell indoors was overwhelmingly musty. I sacrificed the rental fee, booking fee and cleaning fee (ha, ha!) but I got the damage deposit back. However, it was worth it because I was not comfortable staying in this house. Moral of the story: 1) there are plenty of wonderful homes on VRBO with great reviews - book one of those; 2) travel safely and trust your instincts.
