Potrero Townhome Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms: 1 king, 1 queen, 2 twin. 3 bathrooms.

Our townhome is an end unit that gives maximum privacy and has a single-home feel to it. Each room has its own air conditioning unit and overhead fan. Two levels give plenty of space to spread out. The deck overlooks the Pacific Ocean and trees where you can see monkeys, birds and iguanas while you enjoy your morning coffee or evening refreshment. Internet connections, tv, dvd, stereo in the living area. The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, all the cookware you will need, blender, toaster, microwave, coffee maker, etc. that will make cooking a pleasure.

Windows on the west and north sides of the upstairs living areas make it easy to keep your eyes on the ocean and watch the boats come and go or to look at the trees and see monkeys, colorful birds and iguanas. The unit affords privacy that few other complexes can offer. The wrap-around balcony has a table, chairs and lounge for you to use for any meals or for just relaxing. The overhead fans will keep you cool.

From Villas Catalinas 13, it is easy to arrange for kayak rentals, horseback riding, day trips, fishing tours, sunset sails or other activities. Jorge, the manager, will answer any questions you may have.

About David or Kathie Crockett

We are retired and live almost half of the time in our home in Costa Rica. The other part of the time we are based in Denver, but travel when the mood strikes us. We love our CR home and hope you will, too!

David or Kathie Crockett purchased this townhome in 2009

Why David or Kathie Crockett chose Guanacaste

When we decided to buy in Costa Rica, we knew we wanted something with a beautiful ocean view. We didn't want to be in a very developed, touristy area, but we did want to be near enough to enjoy the things those areas offer. We believe our location is perfect: a quick walk to two beaches, near a small village, 30 minutes to Tamarindo for 'major' shopping sprees, and just over an hour to Liberia airport.

What makes this townhome unique

Our complex, Villas Catalinas, is gated and there is always at least one guard on duty. The infinity pool is located at the top of the hill where the view is almost unbelievable! But when we have had guests, the thing they always remember and comment on the most is how relaxing it was to just sit on the deck and enjoy the view!

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time in your house, it is just fantastic. The best of it is the view and the proximity to the beach. The only thing we missed was a barbeque. As for Jorge he was very nice and efficient. We found and ac unit not working right and he fixed it in the blink of an eye.

My wife loves to cook and found just every little toy she needed in the kitchen, and if she is happy so are we, because we love her

Thank you so much for letting us rent you beautiful place.

Pura vida!

Absolutely WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a quiet place that is less touristy, but close enough to any and all amenities you might desire, look no further than this amazing condo. This was our first trip to Costa Rica and we plan on coming back here with our children.

Highlights: a five minute walk to two seperate beaches, one of which has very gentle waves, perfect for families

-An AMAZING guide who can do kayak tours, snorkeling, and fishing expeditions lives between those two beaches and is very affordable and a great guy!

-Within close driving distance (15-30 minutes) of some larger towns if you want to explore restaraunts, take surfing lessons, go for a sunset cruise etc.

-The condo itself has everything you could ever need, we cooked a couple nights, and there is an American style grocery fairly close in Tamarindo.

-Great hiking very close, and plenty of day trips to choose from

-Beautiful private pool within complex to chill and read a book/drink a cocktail

Consider going at the end of the rainy season when we did-it was lush, but really only rained a bit in the afternoons, and there were hardly any tourists. I can't imagine going any other time! We had the beach completely to ourselves. You will LOVE staying at this condo, the owners have thought of everything!

Car: recommended

Villas Catalinas complex is a little over an hour's drive from the airport in Liberia near the village of Potrero. Our unit is located above the beaches of Penca and Prietta, a 10-minute drive from the old resort town of Flamingo, and 30 minutes from Tamarindo where you can shop, dine and take surfing lessons. Then return to Villas Catalinas where you can enjoy peace, quiet, and privacy while looking out at the beautiful Pacific Ocean. The balcony is oversize and perfect for watching and/or listening to the monkeys in the trees across the road and seeing the local sailboats and fishing boats go in and out of the bay. It is about a mile from Las Catalinas where you can rent kayaks, paddle boards, boogie boards and mountain bikes. Serious bikers will love the trails that have been cut into the hills. Within walking distance are the restaurants of Sol y Mar and Los Brisas as well as Catalina Mini Market where you can pick up groceries. Sol y Mar's chef, Girardo, will prepare fish and shrimp dishes to order. Los Brisas is right on the beach and has the best margaritas around!

The beautiful infinity pool at Villas Catalinas is gorgeous; once you get there, you'll have to force yourself to go any place else! It has lots of space to lounge in the sun as well as a grill, sink and two full bathrooms with showers.
