After returning home from our week at Villas Kalimba I still daydream about going back to our little poolside villa steps from the quiet, beautiful Samara Beach. We could pretend this was our own little place to live Pura Vida. We spent our idle hours in the outdoor living space, with the hammock, sitting area and outdoor dinning area afforded privacy by the lush garden. Our hosts were helpful and welcoming. We enjoyed the convenience to all the amenities we wanted. The best comment I can make is that it felt like our home in Costa Rica for a week.

Visited beautiful Playa Samara in the beginning of 2012 - it was the best vacation we've ever had!This place and exactly Villas Kalimba are so relaxing and enjoyable that we're almost crying when leaving...)) Our host Roberto (grazie senior)) offered the warmest hospitality and even cooked sometimes to please his guests. It was a delicious pasta by the way!)) definitely go back if we get chance!

For the Christmas period we wanted a bit of luxury so booked 3 nights at Villas Kalimba but not in the main bit, we hired a private villa with its own pool - heaven. The italian owner was really friendly and helpful. The place was big with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, a kitchen and lounge. It was minutes from the sea and close to the supermarkets and restaurants. It was nice to have a place to ourselves with secure parking. The only thing that i think would improve this place would be a DVD player.

Stayed here from New Year's Eve for the week with our family of four (kids 9,13). For us it was the perfect place. Cross the quiet road and enjoy the beach with excellent surf for beginning surfers. Friendly laid back beach town with a good choice of restaurants. Very tasteful clean villa, beautiful garden and pool. All staff were always friendly, helpful and welcoming. Roberto spoilt us with his fabulous Italian cooking. Whether it was fish, meat or pasta, he would always create the most astonishing meals with quality ingredients. We left with pain in our hearts!

Just returned from a great week with our homebase at Villas Kalimba. After a day of exploring, surfing, kayaking, swimming, eating and drinking, it was always refreshing to come 'home' to our villa. Clean, spacious, with great amenities like outdoor dining table, hammock, private sitting area, kitchen, AC and patio doors off our bedroom. The owners are super friendly, as are all the staff. Fantastic place - we'll be back, hopefully soon.
