Wonderful Condo!

We had a wonderful time at this condo. From the moment we opened the front door, we were in awe. The place smelled so good and it was spotless. The color scheme was beautiful, as well as all the decorations throughout the place. It was very cozy and it felt a lot like home. The beds were so comfortable (even the sofabed) -the most comfortable beds we had during our stay in Costa Rica ;-D. The kitchen had everything we could possibly need. The swimming pool was a very popular place with our kids, and the jacuzzi in the pool was amazing. The location within walking distance of La Penca and local supermarkets and restaurants was so convenient. We felt safe at all times and enjoyed having the condo -and the beach!- pretty much to ourselves. We are already set on going back next summer. You'll be hearing from us next year!

Thank you for your patience answering our never ending questions. Your condo was much more than what we were expecting. You have a very beautiful place.

Take care and we'll contact you sometime next year.

Most Perfect Place for Memorable Visit to Paradise

We were very fortunate to stay at Casa Del Sol for an extended stay ~ and wish we could have stayed longer. Having travelled every corner of this wonderful country of Costa Rica ~ we can honestly say this is one of the best places to spend your holiday. Daphne and her husband have thoughtfully brought together everything you'll need for the perfect vacation experience. Casa Del Sol is hidden away in the delightful town of Portrero. The locals are friendly and will make you feel welcome immediately. The area is safe, quaint and beautiful. Some of the best beaches in the entire country are within walking distance ~ including Playa Penca, Azucar and Danta. The condo is stunning ~ absolutely everything you'll need to feel right at home and even more... We were delighted to find everything we needed to make meals, to relax and to enjoy. We have so many fond memories and they include the very friendly staff, Cindy & Pablo. Thank you Daphne ~ you are truly one of the best to rent from ~ we are blessed to have found your little piece of paradise... we'll be back soon!

This was our first to Costa Rica and we had an amazing trip. The condo was situated in a tranquil location just minutes from a secluded white sand beach. The pool at the condo was impeccably clean and surrounded by lush gardens. The owner, Daphne, was wonderful to work with. She made all of accommodation arrangements a breeze. Being our first time in first time in Central america, Daphne put our fears of the unknown, at ease. The Costa Rican people are very friendly and the diversity of the landscape was jaw dropping. We are already planning our next back! I would highly recommend this condo rental to anyone.

Casa del Sol at Penca Beach, Potrero

  • Submitted: Jan 4, 2012
  • Stayed: Apr 2011
Had a wonderful, restful experience at Casa del Sol. This was a fabulous ground level garden apartment. Our accommodation (#17) was very private yet only steps from the pool. The gardens within the complex create a lush and lovely hideaway feel and Penca Beach is just a few blocks away. A favorite nightly ritual was a walk to the beach to watch the sun set. Wow! Loved the spacious feel of the apartment and the decor. Felt very at home with the inclusion of all things needed to do our own meal prep. Enjoyed early morning breakfasts on the patio with the morning bird songs. Felt very safe and the staff was helpful. Thank you! #17 was a very special part of my Costa Rican holiday - my home away from home.

Tropical Home Sweet Home !!

  • Submitted: Jan 4, 2012

What a perfect winter home away from home among fast growing tropical plants with friendly faces starting from the guards at gateway to cleaning staff and gardening crew. From waking up to sounds of howler monkeys and parrots in the morning to enjoying watching the sun go down on nearby beach and watching kids from small village playing soccer in the square. Nice to have comforts of home to cook your own meal and eat on your own patio and plunge into pool or close enough to many interesting places to eat out and mix with other like minded travellers

Jim and Daphne as landlords will make your rental experience easy , friendly and you will want to return again and again

A Perfect Paradise in Potrero!

  • Submitted: Jan 4, 2012

What an amazing little oasis this condo is! We arrived late at night, in the dark, and were so happy to be met and looked after, just as Daphne had promised. The condo is gated; the security staff let us in and made sure we were settled. We were delighted with the condo, from the attractive tropical decor to the luxurious appointments in the bedrooms. We headed for those oh-so-comfy beds in a hurry! The next morning, more treats were revealed...lush tropical plantings surrounding a pretty pool, in the centre of a lovely low building. Our terrace looked out into colourful blossoms visited by butterflies, while parrots and other birds flitted by. We loved the village; this condo sits in the midst of a small town at the end of a dirt road. We could walk to the local "soda", an open air restaurant, and Sol Y Mar makes the best tacos, guacamole and sea bass Kimberley you'll ever eat! Walking the short block to the beach, you might catch a glimpse of one of the monkeys that can be heard from the condo. The vegetation is thick but if you're patient you can spot them. We were there when the mangoes were ripe, so needless to say, fresh fruit for breakfast every day. The beach was amazing, although we were a little too chicken to wade too far into the surf. There are lots of neat night spots to visit, but we were quite happy at the beach or the pool, eating mangoes and taking a trip to Tamarindo in our rented car. You need a car in Potrero. Our hostess, Daphne, was invaluable when it came to making arrangements for airport transportation, our car and of course informing us of all there was to see and do. At the end of a lazy day, we loved sitting on our terrace, then heading in to choose a DVD to watch on the flat screen TV. This condo is perfect for those who want a getaway that's away from the tourist hustle and bustle. The authenticity of the experience added so much to our holiday, we're looking forward to going back to check out the rest of Daphne's suggestions!

We enjoyed the comfort and luxury of this well appointed condo, while being able to experience a sense of the everyday lives of the very friendly neighbouring people. The nearby beach is perfect for swimming - warm water, sandy, safe. We also loved being able to walk out of the condo and have the beautiful pool right there. The restaurant right across the street from the condo has delicious, inexpensive food.

Casa Del Sol is a very comfortable, nicely appointed and well equipped place in a fourplex gated/guarded complex. A pretty pool with very nice pool deck sat in the middle of the pretty gardens.In the early morning before it was too hot, we walked gorgeous Penca Beach made of pink shells crushed by the sea, to return to our patio for a lovely breakfast of fruits from the veggie/fruit man under the tree down the road. The guests/owners/staff in the complex were delightful; very kind and helpful. Take your cold drink and some appies and camera back to Penca and enjoy the magnificent sunset. Another fabulous sunset watch is off Potrero Beach at the Bahia Del Sol Hotel and off Flamingo Beach. Strong word of warning spray yourself with bug repellent or the 'No See Ems' will eat you alive especially at sunset!!
We found some awesome eateries if not just across the street at Sol Y Mar then a short drive down the road to the Happy Snapper, Carlos & Carlos and Marco Polo for higher end yet still reasonable dishes. Most of the restaurants with the tables on the beach turned out great fresh fish and Margaritas too.
Don't forget Lolas 10 minutes north on Sugar Beach for a great lunch and good kayak and snorkeling equipment rentals.
