Playa Potrero Townhome Rental Photos and Description
3 bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, sleeps 8
Bella Vista del Mar is located on the 'Gold Coast' of Costa Rica which is considered to be the prime location in Costa Rica to vacation. Our home is located in the town of Potrero in an upscale, gated community called Villas Catalinas. The map on homeaway does not accurately locate the location of our home. Our home is located on Camino Las Catalina across the street from Playa Penca.
Our elegant town home blends spacious living, comfort and luxury with magnificent views of Flamingo and Potrero Bay, Playa Penca, Playa Prieta, and incredible Pacific sunsets. Sitting on our wrap-around terrace watching a beautiful sunset with the waves crashing in the background makes time stand still. The shared infinity pool also has a breathtaking panoramic view of the coastline.
Our two story town home has been tastefully decorated to reflect the Costa Rican culture. All of our furniture has been handmade by Costa Rican craftsman. It has granite and marble counter tops throughout and has all the amenities to make your stay very comfortable. Our gourmet kitchen has just about everything you would need to cook a wonderful meal.
Our home has three bedrooms and three baths. The master has a king bed with private bath, the second bedroom has a queen bed with private bath and the third bedroom sleeps four with two sets of adult side custom-made bunkbeds. There is also a full bath for this bedroom. Each room has a beautiful views of the ocean.
Bella Vista del Mar is very close to the beach... A quick three minute walk to two beautiful secluded beaches.
A bit more about our home: Our home is a two story stand alone home, not a condo. Next to our home is tropical gardens that allows for more privacy.
The Beaches: The beach is VERY close to our house. Our home sits on a hill overlooking Flamingo Bay. Just down from that hill is the ocean. Literally it is a 3-5 minute leisurely walk to two beautiful beaches. Playa Penca is a beautiful white sand beach in Flamingo Bay which is quite shallow for a long way out great for children, sunbathing, skim boarding and swimming. Playa Prieta is the same distance and has lots of great shade and big rolling waves for body surfing.

About Jill or Jim Walsh
We are a couple from California who fell in love with Costa Rica as soon as we stepped foot in the country. I am a Physician and my husband is a Pharmacy Director. We love to be able to escape to this tropical paradise as often as we can.
Jill or Jim Walsh purchased this townhome in 2006
Why Jill or Jim Walsh chose Playa Potrero
We went down to Costa Rica in 2001 and fell in love with this area of Costa Rica. We wanted a home on the ocean that had all the luxuries we are accustomed to in the United States but was located in a Costa Rica community so that we could continue to have authentic Costa Rican experiences.
What makes this townhome unique
Our home has beautiful views of the ocean and is located very close to the beaches. It is in a small gated community within an authentic Costa Rican community. It allows a traveler to have a very comfortable stay in a luxury home and yet have an authentic Costa Rican vacation.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Recent website review:
Everything in the listing is accurate. However the pictures do not do it justice. The property was spotless inside and out. The gated community in which it's located is well maintained. Everyone from the security, to the maid, to the maintenance crew were so warm, welcoming and above all helpful. The staff of Special Places of Guanacaste were very friendly as well. Jill was wonderful in answering any questions and prompt in answer all of my emails and calls. The house also has everything you're used to as far as home appliances. The house is surrounded by beautiful forests and only a 5 minute walk to the beach. The living room, kitchen, dining room and outdoor patio have an amazing view of the beach. You can even hear the waves crashing on the beach at night. The infinity edge pool has breathtaking views. There is so much to do and see and after a long eventful day it's nice to come home to a place like this. This house is also perfectly located near some of Costa Rica's most beautiful beaches and resorts but not too close that you find yourself among a crowd of tourists. I definitely would recommend this place to a friend or relative. If I ever return to Costa Rica I will definitely stay in this wonderful home again. If you're considering traveling to Costa Rica and don't know where to stay you've found the perfect vacation home. You will not be disappointed.
