Playa Potrero House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This incredible ocean view home is only about 100 feet from the Pacific Ocean. You can enjoy relaxing strolls on the sandy beach, swim in the family-friendly ocean bay, and return for a fresh water dip in the privacy of your own pool. In the evening enjoy the unforgettable Costa Rican sunsets from the 2nd floor furnished balcony, or the 3rd floor shaded belvedere.

If you want excitement, a huge selection of activities are readily available: scuba diving, snorkelling, turtle expeditions, sport fishing, canopy tours, sunset sails...to name just a few. Costa Rica is famous for its diverse wildlife population. Monkey sightings are common, occasionally even from the pool at Casa Cerca del Mar!

If you are more inclined to relax, Casa Cerca del Mar offers a cool and comfortable home away from home to enjoy the peace and serenity of a quiet beach in Costa Rica...Just sit and listen to the rhythm of the ocean waves!

When my wife and I both retired from high-stress health service careers, we decided to devote our lives to escaping the 'hustle and bustle' of life: Costa Rica made that dream come true, and we feel we have managed to turn the clock back on our lives, never feeling healthier or younger!

Tom purchased this house in 2004

It was love at first sight! A unique 3-level home in a quiet exclusive neighborhood...Beautiful private garden... Monkeys visiting the mango tree next to our own pool... The sounds and sights of the ocean from our master bedroom...How much better could it be???

One of things we like bast about our location it that the ocean in front of the villa is safe for swimmers of all ages-- There are no hidden obstacles or severe drop-offs, and no dangerous currents or rip-tides. The kids can safely enjoy body-boarding, and very occasionally, (about once a year) an ocean 'swell' from the North will build great surfing waves. But for the most part the ocean outside the Casa is tame and safe for swimmers of all ages and skill levels.

And I'm certain you'll be as surprised as we are when you walk out onto the beach and scan the two miles of beach to your left and then the mile of beach to your right and see maybe only a handful of beach-goers...you'll instantly realize the entire bay is all YOURS to enjoy!

Please take the time to explore Playa Penca just to the North, a bit beyond the 'Las Brisas' beach bar and restaurant. The waves are a little rougher there, but the ocean and beach are pristine and you will find some great shade trees to laze under while watching the Pelicans dive for fish in the cove.

WONDERFUL

  • 5 of 5
House is exactly as described. So comfortable and pretty. The location is about an hour away from Liberia Airport. It was perfect for us four single ladies on a birthday vacation. The locals were super friendly. Saioa was a rock star! The owner was a pleasure to deal with. I highly recommend staying here. My friends and I would definitely return.

3 of my girlfriends & I stayed for Memorial Day weekend. The house is exactly as described. We felt very safe and well taken care of. Saioa is amazing. She gave us so many recommendations, replies to her emails quickly, & is super attentive. The locals are so friendly & helpful. The house is comfortable, clean & about an hour from the airport. We hired a chef just for breakfast & he was great. We had the most amazing time & can't wait to come back.

WONDERFUL PLACE FOR A VACATION!

  • 5 of 5
We absolutely loved our stay at Casa Cerca Del Mar. The house was exactly as described. Our family of eight adults had a wonderful vacation. The owner answered all our questions quickly, the housekeeper Sylvia was very sweet, Benito the groundskeeper took care of the pool and Saioa was very helpful with suggestions and information. If we needed anything she was a phone call away. We rented a couple of golf carts to take us around the area and had a delightful time exploring at our own pace. We visited Del Sol down the beach and the swim-up bar which is beautiful. The restaurants were very good and yet we cooked our own breakfast most days and a couple of evenings. The Shack restaurant has great food and friendly service. The house was just so lovely and comfortable, the terrace on the third floor was beautiful to watch the sunsets. Our kids had such fun zip lining and ATVing. We couldn't have asked for a better experience and nicer people to make our vacation very memorable.

WONDERFUL HOME AND GREAT LOCATION FOR GUANACASTE OPERATIONS!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time. Sylvia, Benito and Saioa were all wonderful. One of the drains was loose on one side of the kitchen sink (No big deal by the way) and I mentioned it to Saioa and within 10 minutes Benito was knocking on the door. In the land of mañana that is some pretty impressive service!

Your house is beautiful and the accommodations were perfect for the 8 people we had. We cooked all breakfasts and a couple of dinners in the kitchen and it had everything we needed. I can't think of anything I can even tell you that may have been wrong with the house or suggestions to improve. We loved it just the way it is. The a/c's kept everything cool and it was over 100 degrees several days while we were there. Even when we shut them off when we left in the morning, we would arrive in the afternoon and the house was still pretty cool and once the a/c's ran for 15-30 minutes it was perfect again.

I want to go back. It's only a 2.5 hour flight from Houston so no big deal for sure. All of the roads from Liberia were very good and many were brand new. Costa Rica is definitely a step above any other Central American country in the amount of organization and cleanliness along the road ways, etc. I have done business in Latin America my whole career and have spent lots of time in many different countries and Costa Rica is special.

Thanks again and we hope to be calling you up again next year.

BEST VACATION EVER!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Casa Cerca Del Mar for 10 days in early April 2014 and had the time of our lives! We had 8 people who all slept comfortably in this great house. We used the pool almost every day and were able to watch Monkeys and iguanas in the trees a few times from the pool. The upper lookout deck views are amazing! The daily yard man, Benito, and the house keeper, Sylvia, were super kind and did an awesome job keeping us comfortable. We loved the secluded feel of the house, even though there are neighbors, it feels off the beaten track. We will definitely recommend the home to friends visiting the Guanacasta region and hope to come back again!

OUR VACATION IN COSTA RICA

  • 5 of 5
Our family just returned from a wonderful vacation in Playa Potrero where we found the house to be family friendly and just steps to the beach. Instead of renting a car we were able to hire local drivers to take us to and from adventures and we had only a short walk to everything else we needed. Getting to know the local customs was important to us. The "house manager" Saioa made absolutely certain we were taken care of! It made the difference between getting top value for our dollars or not. We celebrated every day by watching the sunset from one of the upper decks. We recommend this place for anyone seeking a tranquil time away from the bustle of the heavily used tourist areas. Our thanks to everyone involved in making this trip so special.

This comfortable villa includes twice weekly maid service and daily pool and grounds maintenance. Enjoy our two sea-kayaks (one two-person - one one-person)-- and paddle out to explore the nearby islands, or fish for Wahoo, Rooster Fish, or Snapper in the lush fishing grounds of Potrero Bay. The ocean in front of the house is yours to enjoy!

The property manager 'Saioa' will be there to greet you and introduce you to the house. And she will gladly help with all your arrangements: From Liberia Airport pick-up to Zip-Lining, Snorkeling, and any number of spectacular Nature and Wildlife Tours.

The neighborhood is safe and quiet, and the house is easy walking distance from grocery stores, fun restaurants, and night spots. Enjoy the swim-up bar at the Bahia Del Sol just a few minutes walk south on the beach, or stay up late dancing on 'Ladies Night Wednesdays' at the Las Brisas nightclub and restaurant, just a few minutes walk north along the beach. Don't miss breakfast at The Shack or live music at Coconuts. Speaking of coconuts, our grounds keeper, Benito, will be happy to fetch fresh coconut water for you from the local palms-- watching him open them deftly with his machete is an experience you won't forget! And if you like, we can arrange a traditional Costa Rican chef for your party-- he will shop, cook, serve, and clean-up for as little as $10/plate while you enjoy the spectacular sunsets from the 2nd or 3rd floor verandas.
