Playa Potrero house description

For a true cultural experience visit Palma del Mar. Our care takers, Ervin and Myella, who live on the property in a separate suite will help you get involved culturally. Culturally speaking, that means from chasing cows and horses out in the front yard and back on to the beach when the gate is left open, to accompanying you to traditional town fiestas if you wish. On the other hand, if you want total privacy the home is yours alone. Our setting is quiet. Few people walk on our beach, however, there are many beaches in close proximity with lots of people. In the evenings there is lots of activity at nearby restaurants and resorts. We have had numerous weddings at our home. All of the flowers for the weddings have been picked from our beautiful color gardens.
It is difficult to describe how close we are to the ocean. On a high tide, with the swell in the right direction and the assist of a tropical breeze, the ocean water on occasions will come down the walkway past the lawn right to the back door of the lanai. I'm not talking about a scary thing but an exciting fun thing. The outdoor shower at the corner of the house and a covered rancho at the waters edge represent two places of frequent use by all.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1993

                      About the owner: My wife and I are semi-retired Realtors. We own two ocean front homes both of which are vacation rentals. We choose to share them with others through this avenue. We have four children who are now all adults and have grown up going to the house year after year.

                      Why the Owner Chose Playa Potrero:
                      If you want the all inclusive resort atmosphere or all closed in Miami vice environment, we are not your place. If you want a comfortable, clean home characteristic of the Costarican beach lifestyle, we are your place. We have two loving caretakers that will serve you and treat you as family. Our amenities are significant but in a traditional Costarican setting.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We have taken the time to put in beautiful lawn areas filled with tropical plants, coconut palms, and various kinds of banana trees all right on the beach. You don't have to go anywhere, you are already there but if you have to go somewhere there are resort activity zones close by in both directions.
