About the property

New 1Bd/1Ba Penthouse Honeymoon Getaway Condo! 4th Floor, Amazing Views!

Brand New Condo! Cozy 1bd/1ba Romantic Getaway! Be one of the first guests to enjoy this brand new Condo on the fourth floor with amazing beach and ocean views!

Hi, I'm Patrick, the owner of this Condo and of the three other Condos that make up this one-of-a kind vacation rental. Your every whim is catered to with direct attention since you are my number #1 priority - the guest. I don't just own the Condo but the building so any aspect of the overall property I can address directly.

The difference here is quality - I spend more of your rental payment on quality: from my staff, to linens, to new paint, to keeping the bbq clean and supplied. The a/c units are constantly maintained to ensure 100% effectiveness, the free wifi connects at Internet Cafe rates. Let me and my team provide you with the world class experience and vacation you deserve!

No car needed - the beach is down the street and the best mini-super market/cafe/coffee shop/bakery "Iguana Verde" is just two blocks away on a very quiet road. Local eateries within 2-3 blocks as well.

I recently re-invested significantly in the building, doubling the size of the third floor condo a 2bd/2ba, and adding a 1bd/1ba fourth floor condo named Dahlia. I take pride in continually updating Alta Vista to keep it new and fresh!

Back in 2006 I chose the lot to build on based on its quiet and accessible location with its pristine beach views. I drew the plans and built the building based on having a world-class vacation experience for myself and my guests. Now I manage the building keeping true to the original vision: world-class service at a gem of a property.

Enjoy spectacular views from this luxurious condominium, named Condo Begonia, the second floor condo of the four floor Alta Vista Condominium building, located 1.5 blocks to the beach and a short walk to town; high speed wireless Internet, pool, A/C, fully equipped kitchen, on-site secure covered parking, on-site concierge and caretaker and much more!

Absorb the refreshing ocean breezes from your own private balcony, cool off in the pool, or go for a stroll on the beach but don't miss the adorable Congo Monkeys playing in the trees at eye level from 'The Congo Lounge', the rooftop terrace.

Alta Vista Condominiums has no match in Samara or the surrounding beaches. When you want to be close to town and next to the ocean, in a stylish ocean view condo with all the comforts of home and more, look no further.

Recipient of prestigious ' Five Star Award of Excellence', Samara still has no match, even five years after we opened for business. Randall, the caretaker and concierge, has been with the Alta Vista Team for 4+ years and continues to receive glowing reviews. Rates have remained the same going back to 2009 despite heavy investments in new furniture, decoration, and relentless upkeep. A common refrain from our guests is, 'of all the places we've stayed in Costa Rica, yours is the only that looks as good or better in person as it does online.' I'm proud to present a property and a vacation experience to the stylish discerning independent traveler who shuns packaged trips but won't settle for shared bathrooms or the tourist traps promoted by false advertising.

We have at least ten different guests/families who have visited us every year after their first stay. They go on to tell their friends who then also become repeat guests. They love the home-like feeling the condo has. Denis is almost always at the building as is Laura our lovely administrator and Xinnia the housekeeper. Zorro is an adorable constant companion!

Make your reservation at Alta Vista today and join the ranks of our many high-end repeat guests!

About Patrick

I bought the land in 2006, the same year I moved to Playa Samara. We broke ground fall of 2007 and wrapped up construction December 2008. This new condo, Condo Dahlia, was always part of my master plan for Alta Vista and in December 2018 the vision was completed! I have planned and built Alta Vista Condominiums overseeing every detail to the way I would like it as if I were on vacation. I've traveled to many beaches being a surfer and waterman and Playa Samara took the prize for being the friendliest, cleanest, most tico beach in Costa Rica. I built multiple condos with the idea that I'd live in one and rent the others for income.

Patrick purchased this condo in 2006

Why Patrick chose Sámara

Location, location, location. I'm located on the west (north) end of the bay of Playa Samara, in the small village called Cangrejal. It's still Samara Beach, it's just on the edge of the bay which means it's quiet. My building backs up to the forest and their are no neighbors to three sides of me. The only inhabitants are the incredible amount of different species - from howler monkeys, to toucans and iguanas, and everything in between, get ready for a natural paradise!

What makes this condo unique

Unbeatable views of the beach and ocean yet on the quiet dead-end street that leads to the beach just 1.5 blocks away. Some other rental properties in Samara have great views, but you have to drive or make an unpleasant walk to the beach. Some places in Samara are close to the beach but have no view and are stagnant, with no beach breezes. Because of my openness to the ocean the breezes constantly reach the building keeping mosquitoes to a minimum and refreshing to a maximum!

Modern Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

The views are stunning, front is a horse ranch and the beach. The back is trees w lots of monkeys. The condo is beautiful w large windows to enjoy the views including the shower. The on site staff are wonderful at their job and wonderful people. The location is great. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend these condos. Next is the only issue we had 👇?🏻?

There is a lot of steps to the condo. Make sure w Laura, upon your arrival someone is there to help w the bags. Laura assisted by 1) making a joke to our cab driver to help w the bags. He offered (we would have paid after our long journey) she laughed and told him to leave 2) carrying two grocery bags up and leaving them outside. When I mentioned to her she left them outside, she replied “well I don’t know what’s in there”. Upon our arrival Laura said we were probably late because we have gone food shopping. I have the email where Laura recommended going food shopping. This doesn’t make her a bad person, just be very clear w details when scheduling your arrival.

Also, there is a pool to enjoy.

Enjoy your modern condo!

Owner's Response: Thank you Amy we're glad you enjoyed your stay. Good advise on giving details regarding your arrival. If Denis (caretaker) is there at check in he will bring bags up for you. I have noted to Laura that in future if Denis is not there, to by all means tell the taxi driver to bring up bags unless the guest declines this service. - Patrick

Stunning condo inside and out

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in Patrick's brand new condo for 6 nights..It was heaven.The kitchen is well equipped with a functional layout.The outdoor eating area was nice to sit at and watch the monkeys in the trees above.The fridge had an ice maker which came in handy for going to the beach with a cooler.The modern shower had plenty of hot water.The bedroom had massive closets and a comfortable bed for a perfect nights sleep.The pool area was clean and had an outdoor grill.The condo has lots of windows and two outdoor sitting areas .Watching sunrise from the veranda was a highlight. The grocery store is walking distance and the beach is just down the road about 200 meters.Patrick also provided beach chairs .This was a nice touch. .Laura,,Xenia and Denis work very hard to maintain this property and we're such a pleasure to talk to.We will definitely return.pura vida

Owner's Response: Hi Tarja, thank you so much for your review - the very first for the new Condo Dahlia! I'm so pleased it pleased you! I agree, the views from this fourth floor 1bd/1ba unit are spectacular, and the back balcony feels like you're sharing the forest with the neighbors - the howler monkeys! Glad you found the mattress comfy (top priority to buy the best beds) and the amenities accommodating. We look forward to hosting you in the future! Best Regards, Patrick
