Property description

Luxurious 4-bedroom, 4 1/2 bath penthouse on peaceful Playa Potrero.

Completed in 2007, our spacious home (3000 square feet) is beautifully decorated and features high end finishes throughout: granite counter tops, travertine floors, tiled bathrooms, original art, and custom furniture, paintwork, window treatments and bedding. Twice weekly housekeeping service is included.

Our penthouse occupies the entire top floor of a 5 unit building. It is located in the exclusive Surfside development, in the center of a wide bay stretching from Sugar Beach to Playa Flamingo. World class ocean fishing, surfing, scuba and snorkeling are only minutes away, and we offer a new, 2-person Hobie kayak if you want to fish or explore the bay on your own. A small, well-stocked grocery store, farmers market and three cafe/restaurants are less than a block away, and nearby Playa Flamingo (10 minutes drive) and Tamarindo (about 1/2 hour) have a wealth of restaurants, shops and services to meet your every desire.

Despite its luxurious appointments, our penthouse is child-friendly. Playa Potrero is one of the calmest beaches in Guanacaste, with no riptides, gentle surf and soft sand. Unlike some other properties in the area, there are no roads to cross or hills to navigate to get to the ocean. There's a fenced swimming pool and large grass play area between our building and the beach. We've stocked our home with boogie boards, swim fins, masks and snorkels, and kids toys and books.

Our local property managers are ready to help you with anything you need to make your stay enjoyable and memorable. They can pick you up at the airport, have the home stocked with groceries when you arrive, and arrange for a chef, massage or daily maid service (twice weekly cleaning is included in your rental fee). They can help you plan jungle or canopy tours, excursions to the area’s many spectacular volcanoes, scuba or surfing lessons, or golf or fishing trips.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2007

About: We are a Colorado couple with 5 grown children, 12 grandchildren and one goofy golden retriever. We love to ski, golf, fish, hike and enjoy the outdoors. We also like to travel, with recent trips to Alaska, Africa, Europe and New Zealand. Tom is a retired computer business owner and Chris is a psychologist and part-time consultant. Since we bought our El Destino penthouse in 2007, we have averaged about 3 trips each year to Costa Rica.

Why Flamingo Beach:
We fell in love with Costa Rica on our first visit and were fortunate to find a property that has allowed us to share this beautiful place with our family, friends and rental guests. We chose our El Destino penthouse for many reasons: it accomodates large groups easily and with all the comforts of home; it has incredible ocean views and sounds; and, because it is in the middle of a large bay, we have no undertow and our young grandchildren can handle the waves. We also like being located in a residential neighborhood where the beach is never crowded, but which offers easy access to a variety of restaurants, shops, and adventurous tourist activities.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Because our penthouse occupies the entire third floor of our building, we have spectacular, unobstructed ocean views from Flamingo Beach and the marina on the south, to the town of Potrero and beautiful secluded beaches and islands on the north. We think our terrace, which spans almost the entire width of the building, is the best place in the area to view the sunset. Unlike many other 'beachfront' properties nearby, you don't have to cross a road or navigate down a hill to get from our building to the beach. One of our favorite early morning rituals is to walk from one end of the bay to the other, looking for shells, crabs and other ocean life. Along the estuaries that flow into the bay, we have spotted monkeys in the trees and birds such as egrets, herons and roseate spoonbills (from which Flamingo Beach gets its name). Every day we see something new and different.
