My name is Mike Hopkins. I am a retired school teacher, contractor, tour operator and zoo director.

Yes, zoo director. I built the zoo in my home town of Bakersfield, California. When I traveled the world looking for a perfect place to live that combined the best of a healthy lifestyle and a dedication to preserving nature, Costa Rica topped the list!

My wife, Irma is Costa Rican and we enjoy sharing this wonderful country with others, especially new-comers to the tropics. We invite you to come stay with us, and promise to do our best to make your vacation to Costa Rica a great one.

Mike Hopkins purchased this condo in 2006

Actually I built the six condominiums here on Potrero Beach, called Twin Dolphins. We live in one of the the two Penthouses that occupy the third and fourth floors. We have two bedrooms on the third floor that we rent, with Breakfast included.

I actually drove from California to Costa Rica, visiting many of the beautiful cities and beaches in Mexico and all the Central American countries. When I got to Potrero Beach, Costa Rica I realized that I found the perfect spot, with beautiful beaches all around, jungle and mountains behind, parrots and monkeys everywhere, schools, restaurants, shopping and amenities close by.

Poterero is a safe and secure beach. It is ideal for swimming, snorkeling and taking fabulous beach walks in a quiet community setting.

If you want a loud, disco, late-night partying atmosphere, you are in the wrong place. Our guests like to relax and rejuvenate....with peaceful walks and beautiful sunsets. Our days come complete with laying in a hammock with gentle ocean breezes or taking a dip in our sparkling pool, or hiking and reconnecting with nature. I feel like I have added a year to my life for every year I have lived in Costa Rica. I moved permanently in 2001 and my only regret is that I did not do it sooner.

Our Costa Rican Spring Break

This B&B is a very peaceful retreat set in a beautiful bay. Mike and Irma were very welcoming and made our accommodations very relaxing. We enjoyed wonderful breakfasts on the balcony each morning. These were our favorite meals of the day! The arrival of our bags was delayed and Mike and Irma helped us enormously by calling the airport and even taking us shopping to get some necessities. The rooms were very comfortable and nicely furnished. This property is in a great location with the ocean so close and a few restaurants within walking distance. The sunsets are breathtaking! Mike and Irma were also very helpful in planning excursions that would be a good fit for our family. Each of their recommendations was a wonderful adventure! We enjoyed learning about Costa Rica from the two of them and hope to return to this location again. Thanks again for your hospitality!

Our Wonderful Vacation

We arrived on 2/28/14 and stayed until 3/15/14. This is a excellent place and the pictures don't do it justice. Mike & Irma are wonderful people and made us feel like family. Kaye's luggage was misplaced and didn't arrive until a day later. Mike took care of speaking with the airlines and set it up to have our things brought to the condo. The breakfast were excellent and you never walked away hungry. At night we would set on the porch and watch the beautiful sunsets. We would walk the beach area morning and night and always felt safe. The people of Costa Rica are very friendly and always had a smile and a wave for us. There is a fruit stand next door and a grocery store about 2 blocks away. Mike would help us set up tours and made several calls for us. I recommend this place to anyone who wants to go and see a bit of heaven. We are planning on returning to Costa Rica in 2 years and staying for at least 2 weeks. Ron & Kaye

Favorite stay of our Costa Rican vacation

We've only stayed in a couple B&B's but must say Mike & Irma's hospitality tops them all and has set the bar pretty high for our future travels. The beautiful beach-front location, lovely accomodations (not the sterile environment of a hotel) and breakfasts to die for will make you want to visit again! Thanks so much Mike & Irma!!

It was very fortuitous that we stumbled upon Mike and Irma's B&B while searching for another place to stay on our vacation on the peninsula.

Our accommodations were luxurious indeed. We had all the privacy we could hope for. The view from our room was five stars. The breakfasts were large and delicious.

Mike is a world traveler with lots of experiences and insights. Irma is kind and knowledgeable about the country. Both were eager to answer any questions, and pointed us to great restaurants and secluded beaches. We were in very good hands. Our two year old son enjoyed his stay enormously. We all appreciated the hospitality afforded us in this very peaceful retreat.

I have driven from California all the way to Costa Rica and seen many beaches....Potrero beach is the best. We are right on the warm blue Pacific ocean with lots of activites immediately at hand. Whether you are a water person: swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, fishing, sailing, jet-ski; or an adventure person: quads, horseback riding, zip-lining, river rafting; or a nature person: volcanos, waterfalls, hiking, bird watching......Potrero beach is surrounded by it all. We can help you do any or all of the activities above. We are experts at helping clients with their itinerariesr . There are side-trips to Monteverde cloud forest, Arenal and Rincoln de la Vieja volcanos, Palo Verde national park with a river boat excursion to see crocodiles on the Tempisque river, zip-lining on the Canopy Tour, or even a 1 or 2 day trip to Granada, Nicaragua......we want your trip to Costa Rica to be one of the best ever!
