Two gorgeous well-appointed suites that are perfect for singles and couples wanting to stay right on the beach while vacationing at the beach.

Both suites have gorgeous views of the ocean, beach, pool and great sunsets. Relax by the infinity lap pool or sit on the bar stools to watch the sun go down. There is a full time caretaker on the property that will clean the units as well as offer towels/linens/beach towels. We also have a gas grill for those impromptu BBQ's. Hammocks are available if you'd like to relax under the palm trees. The suites have a/c and fully furnished kitchens. You can also watch cable TV or check emails with Wi-Fi. Just let the caretaker know what you need. Just a 45 minute drive from the Liberia International Airport (LIR) and close to restaurants, grocery and shopping.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Villa Malibu, Suites on the Beach, in Playa Potrero, Guanacaste was our choice for a special anniversary. Having been to Costa Rica before, we wanted to rent somewhere as close to the Pacific as we could get. This rental unit filled the bill. Walking down the stairs across a lovely lawn, past the palapa with enough stools for four, through the gate, across the sand, we were IN the ocean. The water there is the warmest I've ever been in and the gradual slope let us swim and walk as far as we wished. There is also an almost infinity pool beside the palapa that's big enough to swim in.



The Sol suite, though it's the smaller of the two, was certainly big enough for the two of us, containing the sleeping area, a table and chairs, full kitchen and bath. Janet lives in the lower level and she and her friend, Luis, were always available to help if we needed it. She lent my husband Bob a bicycle from the unit to ride around in the villages and those close to it.



The little grocery in Potrero was handy for quick pick-up items because you can walk or bike there. Our favorite full size store was SuperMassai in Playa Flamingo. The restaurants we liked were Nabinni in Tamarindo, Lola's (though only available for lunch) and if you want something more touristy, Hacienda del Sol was just a short walk north on the beach.



The owner, Laura, was always available to answer questions we had prior to our visit and if she didn't know an answer, she'd check with the Special Places of Guanacaste staff in Playa Flamingo. You'll have the cell phone number of one person from that staff; we worked with Yeudy, who was terrific.



The only negatives we had were the lack of cell service, the heat (something no one can change) and the lack of multiple airlines flying into Liberia, and the unpaved roads around Potrero. That said, rent a four wheel drive if you have that option. And enjoy.

PERFECT BEACH HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time in Villa Malibu and Costa Rica and would definitely come back. The food nearby was excellent and the beach views were amazing.

WONDERFUL TWO WEEKS POTRERO/SURFSIDE

  • 5 of 5
Let me begin by saying that we recently had a wonderful two week stay in Luna suite at Villa Malibu.
The suite was exactly as the photos depict and the accommodations were very nice, we enjoyed relaxing at the pool daily. The bay was great for walks (no rocks), watching the birds and local fishermen. The water here is calm but snorkeling is better at the beaches named later. Many happy memories of the restful two weeks, and we truly hated to leave.
We were definitely glad we had a vehicle as we were able to explore the many beaches and restaurants nearby. We used GoogleEarth to find the beaches as there are no road signs. Our favorites were Conchal with the white shell sand and clear water, Penca and Prieta were smaller with few to no tourists and Las Catalinas because it had the blackest, finest sand I have ever seen. Pay attention to the undertows at these beaches if you have children.
We met several ex-pats and locals; they were especially helpful and friendly. The housekeeper was wonderful (towel swans on the bed was a nice touch). Had a little challenge with language but that is because we don’t speak Spanish, but all worked out well,
If you like to eat out try:
Soda Marcell – Potrero - (Arroz con pollo/camerones), no English but really helpful
Las Brisas – Potrero - (Huge shrimp in garlic butter - not on the menu, so you have to ask, a little pricy but well worth it)
Sugar Beach Hotel - on the way to Las Catalinas - (Chicken nachos)
Green House - Las Catalinas - (Try the local dish: Chifrijo)
Stop by the Pura Vida Ride for a chat.

Thanks to Ivan at Tamarindodreamersadventure.com for a wonderful horseback excursion in Brasilito. Be sure to ask him for options as he will create an adventure for you based on whatever you want to see and do.
The massages at Zen Spa at Flamingo Beach resort were OUTSTANDING. Delia is a master at finding the problem areas and working them out. She was so good, we went back to her the next week. There is a local guide book in the condo for other suggestions.
It was really fun to be there for the first rain and the “great crab migration”, and can’t say enough about beach right outside the back gate and the AMAZING SUNSETS! WOW!!!
Internet worked well the entire stay, even at the pool.
Thanks for assembling a great vacation home.

LOVELY GETAWAY ON THE BEACH

  • 4 of 5
This property is a lovely place to park yourself for a week, or use it for a base to explore the neighbouring areas. We love to walk, so each day we'd would walk to either Playa Flamingo, Playa Prieta or Playa Penca - all lovely beaches. Playa Poterero, where the suites are located, is a beautiful beach to look at, and the sunsets are spectacular, but for swimming, we preferred the other nearby beaches.
There are lots of restaurants to walk to, or a quick cab ride away; or you can cook in your suite.
The unit is very attractive, well equipped and spotless. The building Manager is very helpful if you need anything.
We really enjoyed the beautiful pool at the end of the day to swim, lounge and watch the sunsets.
We stayed seven nights and found that perfect for us.
The one other unit was unoccupied for the first 5 nights, which left the pool area all to us for that time.
Highly recommend this spot as one of your stops in Costa Rica.

CAN'T WAIT TO DO IT AGAIN!!

Can't wait to do it again!!
  • 5 of 5
First time visiting Costa Rica and learned a few things during our stay but the one thing I wouldn't change is choosing Villa Malibu as our first place to stay. We were on a ten day vacation but unfortunately we were unable to stay the full ten days because Villa Malibu was already booked but we did get an amazing 6 days. It was like having our own private oasis. We woke everyday at 5:30, had our coffee and then strolled the beach. It was perfect having access to a kitchen and helped save us some money by enjoying our breakfast looking out at the ocean. I really can't say enough. Great hospitality by the couple that lived on premise. However I do know that by the time I return I will be more fluent in Spanish. We found some great places to eat. La Pearla was a favorite of ours and already miss their reasonably priced food!!! Dani at the Shack made us feel very welcome. Both places are within walking distance. It has come to our attention that we belong on the beach. Can't wait to do it again!!! Thank you Laura. Hope to see your beautiful place again!

PURA VIDA VILLA MALIBU

  • 4 of 5
Villa Malibu was Pura Vida my now husband and I stayed there for our wedding, which took place on Penga beach. Our 2 week stay in the Luna was amazing, so peaceful, very clean, fully equipped kitchen loved to to be able to have a fresh fruit smoothie every morning, listening to the sound of the birds and seeing the friendly iguana we named Fabio. Fabioloa the care taker was so helpful and friendly with her friendly smile) Great quality sheets and towels, also have use of a BBQ. Close to Wendy's a little shopping market and also a fruit and Vegetable market. There are many places to eat, if you would like to eat out The Shack, Beach house, El coconut.. Wish that there was a patio to have morning coffee and evening cocktails, but down by the pool was nice as well. The area is great for walking the beach. I would recommend this place to a friend or reliative

VERY PRIVATE AND QUIET LOCATION!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I rented the Sol Suite at Villa Malibu and our experience was 10 out of 10. It is very clean, quiet and right on the beach!!
The Wi-Fi was up and running all week as well and the speed was great which was nice as we could still keep an eye on home.
We were 100 feet from pool on the property and 200 feet to the beach.

Roughly an hour from the Liberia Airport and it was probably the quietest beach I have ever seen. I would stay here again for sure.

Thanks again Laura!!
