“Paradise”
Reviewed January 4, 2013 for a stay in December 2012

Just returned from an idyllic week at The Logan - -if you are looking for a beautiful, laid back place to relax in style - this is it. The combination of the relaxing beach town of Samara and this lovely boutique apartment is a match beyond what I could have hope for. The apartments are gorgeous and have everything that you could ever want. The pool in the court-yard is one of the most beautiful that I have ever seen and the temperature is absolutely perfect! The apartments are equipped with everything that you need including two air-conditioning units and ceiling fans that ensure that the temperature is perfect at all times. We traveled with another couple but were very lucky to make fast friends with the people in the the other two units who we got along with very well and will keep in touch with after the trip. Having said that, although all of the units face on to the one court-yard, it seems easy for everyone to have their own private moments. Monika and Quin will make sure that you have everything that you need! They arranged for a couples massage with the talented Samassage team of Lisa and Wendy who we would highly recommend. All in all, this was one of the most relaxing vacations that I have ever had and we are already trying to figure out when we can return!

“Perfect combo of modern meets jungle right in town”
Reviewed October 27, 2012 for a stay in October 2012

The Logan is an eco-friendly modern rental property that is literally 10 steps to the town of Samara. The rental consists of 2 buildings with 2 units. Each unit has its own individual outdoor patio (or deck if you are in the upper unit) with outdoor seating. The 2 buildings open up to a salt water pool, outdoor bar/bbq area, and individual lounge seating for each unit.

What was great about this place was that the property backs up to the jungle, and yet the unit themselves are modern (stainless steel appliances), spacious, and chic. There were 2 air conditioner units (one in bedroom and other in family room) that cooled down our unit pretty quickly. There was a flat screen tv (42" i think) in each unit. This came in handy as we traveled during the rainy season and so a couple of nights we just stayed inside and relaxed.

The kitchen has a range, toaster oven, coffee maker, a big size fridge, and a blender. The kitchen is stocked with pots/pans, glassware, utensils etc...This was great for us as we went to the local store to stock up on some supplies (okay booze) and were also able to store/reheat some of our leftovers from dining out.

The shower had hot water that was consistent with a great 'rainfall' showerhead. I know it seems weird to point this out, but further into our trip we realized that not all accommodations that say they have hot water really do.

The units each have a phone and so we were able to purchase a calling card to use for calling back to the states.

The owners Quinn and Monika were really helpful and nice! They had plenty of suggestions of places to eat, shop, and general things to do.

Wifi was a little spotty at times, but this has nothing to do with the The Logan and more to do with the Costa Rican infrastructure.

Great views and scenery: One day we just sat by the pool, watched the birds fly by, listened to howler monkeys, and just enjoyed Costa Rica.

The Logan is a nice mix of modern comfort,conveniently located within walking distance of everything in Samara. No rental car needed!

“Perfect spot to live the Pura Vida”
Reviewed August 22, 2012 for a stay in March 2011

We spent 3 weeks with our 2 young daugters (4 and 7 months at that time) in Samara and stayed at the Logan. What an amazing experience! Monika and Quinn were very nice and helpful.

The Logan is very well located and quiet. You can hear the monkeys in the morning It has everything you need, AC, wi-fi, fridge, stove, large TV. Samara is a small town - you can walk anywhere and the variety of restaurant is pretty good.

If you have a car, or a bicycle go to the next town Playa Carrillo, if like me prefer empty beaches with palm trees.

“Peaceful, Comfortable, Modern, Clean”
Reviewed April 30, 2012 for a stay in April 2012

My husband and I stayed at the logan for one night this spring. We were looking for a quiet place for a child-free getaway from busy Tamarindo. The Logan was recommended by friends. We read the positive reviews online and were not disappointed.

It was everything we hoped for and more.
