                            This was a fabulous vacation spot! The condo was beautiful and clean with all new appliances, great kitchen, two full baths and very comfy beds. A very sweet place to come home to after a day of shopping, hiking, or lounging at the beach. One patio opens up to the private pool and another to a beautiful garden and ocean view. The home is situated on a private drive and overlooks a beautiful beach just steps from the door. There are plenty of markets and grocery stores for food shopping, and several banks close by, although all establishments we patronized accepted USD and credit cards as well. You can walk the beach to many delicious local restaurants and bars. The local food is amazing and healthy. You're just a few minutes walk or drive to Flamingo where there is great shopping and entertainment. The atmosphere is very natural and beautiful with many birds and other wildlife to see. Great surfing as well at several beaches a short drive away. There are too many excellent restaurants to mention! The local people are kind and friendly. English is spoken everywhere and we found that people are very helpful if you want to learn Spanish! There is so much to do, we can't wait to go back!

                            Listing was accurate. Photos were accurate. Clean enough. Owner was helpful. Would recommend unit to a friend or relative. Nearby restaurants I would recommend include The Shack, The Beach House, Marco Polo, Las Brisas, Perlas. Enjoyed the catamarand sunset cruise, saw dolphins. Unit needed more dishes. Lots of pots and pans but not serving dishes etc. Bathroom sinks need some repair. Drains did not work properly. A gas barbeque would have been nice. There was an outdoor grill but it was very slow.

                            Our stay was perfect. The location is close enough to activities to never get bored but, it is also just enough out of the way to be private and relaxing. The beach front, which is just footsteps away from the door, is very private and beautiful, the sunsets are so wonderful everyone just stops what they are doing to watch them. The (regular) renters in the adjacent condos are super friendly and very knowledgeable of the area if you need recommendations. You will definitely need a rental car to get around the area. Nothing is too far away but, not everything is within walking distance, although there is a farmers market directly across the street and a handful of restaurants within walking distance. We stayed for 10 days and we will be returning in the near future, for no less than 2 weeks. The property manager that assisted us, Elsie from 'Tropical Homes', was extremely helpful in advising and arranging daytime activities for us...surf lessons, excursions inland, car rental, etc. The condo is the perfect size for 4 people and the beds are super comfy. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking meals with the amazingly fresh local fruits and fish. I really can't say enough about how wonderful this place...we will vacation here again and again.

                            We had a wonderful time in Costa Rica and enjoyed our stay in this beautiful condo. Everything about the home and surrounding grounds was as advertised. Very clean, nicely furnished and right on the beach. The owners kept in contact with us right up until our vacation started and answered any questions that I had quickly and honestly. We found the location to be perfect and never once didn't feel safe or comfortable while in the condo or on the beach. After visiting numerous beaches in the area we came to really appreciate "our" beach with it's calm water and quiet laid back atmosphere. We had a rental car for our full vacation and I would recommend one for touring and the freedom to visit the many good restaurants in the area. We will be back to Potrero, hopefully very soon and I would definitely rent this condo again.

                            The star is for the location, right on the beach. But as an owner you can't just count on that. This condo needs a thorough going-over if it is to be rented out. The listing says cable tv - but the box was missing. So no tv. No cold water available in the master bath sink. Both of the bathrooms tile grout were moldy and a lot of it missing. Neither shower drained - standing in ankle deep water while showering. Slider off the living room to the outside is broken - can't be used. But by far - the issue of the noisy air conditioner in the master is terrible ! In previous review somebody addressed that -- so one would have expected it to be fixed. It was such a huge problem it was impossible to sleep in the master bedroom So - because we needed two bedrooms somebody had to sleep on the sofa in the living room. Owner states that it was worked on -- but it is clear that it needs to be REPLACED if it is causing this much trouble. Not at all happy had to sleep on the couch Also - we have never stayed in a VRBO condo that was quite as unwelcoming as to kitchen supplies. Not as much as a roll of paper towels or even a salt and pepper shaker. Better stop at the store for everything on your way.

                            Owner response: We are shocked to find these things not resolved by the time of your stay and therefor apologize for the inconvenience. Our property mangers and Maintainance personnel have been working hard to make sure everything is corrected. The air conditioner has now been completely replaced, sliding door fixed, cable box now restored. The water issue has also been resolved and all back to perfect order. We pride ourselves on making our condo completely comfortable for everyone. If you wish to stay with us again we will gladly offer a substantial discount for your troubles. Please take care ~ Cheers, Amandda & Jeffrey.

                            The property was exactly as advertised, with comfortable beds & good furniture, and it is a stones throw to the beach. Excellent wifi speed, good TV channels, well-stocked kitchen, and a dishwasher. A car is highly recommended as there are many good beaches, restaurants, watering holes, and tourist attractions worth visiting in the immediate area. We could not give an excellent rating for our one week stay because of several minor things: the airconditioner units were noisy; the sliding patio doors didn't slide very well (one could not be opened); no instructions on how to operate/light the gas oven, nor for any other appliances; somewhat outdated bathrooms. We had a great time and can recommend this property.

                            Owner response: Hi there Thomas! Thank you for the review! I apologize if you were not shown by our property managers how to turn on the stove - the gas tank is located outside and should have been turned on! The sliding doors have security sticks blocking them from opening, again I'm sorry that was not pointed out to you! (However i will have our maintenance guy check to make sure it wasn't due to a faulty lock) A few of the air conditioners are older and louder then the new one in the living room. I wish we could change that, but unfortunately there is no way around it. We are very happy you loved our home away from home, and we would be very happy to have you back! ...We will even throw in a free night for your troubles. Hope to hear from you in the future! Cheers! ~Amandda

                            We stayed at this condo for a full week in November 2012. We thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful area, as well as the location of the condo. The listing description was exactly accurate regarding the location. We had no trouble finding the rental office, picking up our keys, and then were kindly shown the way to the beautiful condo. The photos posted on VRBO were exactly what we saw when we arrived - no surprises! We found the condo clean and ready for us, stocked with towels, kleenex, detergent, etc. Marcus and Jenn at Precioius Places in Costa Rica were extremely friendly and helpful. We certainly felt well taken care of. The condo itself is in an outstanding location, right on the beach. It was literally 30 steps to the sand. You could hear the waves crashing from the living room - just spectacular! It was also less than a 10 minute drive to beautiful Flamingo Beach, and all of the amenities in the town of Flamingo. We certainly ate well during our stay! We would also recommend the fruit stand that is just across the street from the entrance to the condo complex-the lady there had lovely fresh fruit that we purchased from her. There are several grocery stores in the area as well. I would recommend renting a car in this area to get around. The drives may be short, but the roads are very dusty and can be quite dark at night. We always felt very very safe, and even had 2 toads that guarded our door every night! All in all, we had a fantastic trip to Costa Rica. We had traveled the rest of the country 9 days before our stay in Potrero, but the final 7 on the beach were the perfect way to end our beautiful vacation.

                            We had an amazing time at this property. It is obvious that the owners took a lot of time, effort and money in making the condo a 'resort style' condo with extra luxurious amenities. The beach is within 20 steps with a breath taking view... so beautiful! We felt safe the entire time as there are a few full time neighbors that keep an eye on things. If you stay at Flamingo Beach... you HAVE TO stay here! There were also some cute restaurants and bars down the road which were nice as well... an overall perfect location!

                            I've been going to Costa Rica for years and this set up was truly a joy. My experience at this property was overwhelmingly positive. We could hear the waves crashing at night. The lawn separating the condo and pool from the beach was well manicured. The sunsets were ridiculously amazing. Beds comfy. The kitchen and other amenities were exactly as advertised. My only complaint, "I had to leave!" My only hope is that I will one day, visit again.

                          Year Purchased: 2011

                          About the owner: Hello! We are Jeffrey & Amandda Graham...we live in Columbus, Ohio, USA with our two small Chug (chihuahua & pug mix) puppies; Pensyl & Payper. Along with our home, we own several rental properties in the historical community of German Village. Jeffrey takes great care in renovating each property to the highest of standards and loves landscaping & Photography! He also specializes in lighting and sound design in local bars, restaurants, dance clubs and personal residences. I am an artist specializing in oil painting, drawing & mixed media sculpture. I am highly involved in the Art community in Columbus Ohio and I have a passion for curating and collecting art. You can also find us on Facebook! :)

                          Why the Owner Chose Flamingo Beach:
                          We fell in love with Costa Rica many years ago and knew right away it was an ideal place to visit often.... Having rentals here in Columbus, it felt natural to buy in Costa Rica. We want to support the area and the amazingly friendly locals! We love the beach and the incredible bio diversity of this country!! We are also on a quest to help the monkeys of Nosara Wildlife Rescue! We look forward to visiting them often to donate our love and funds! ;)

                          The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                          Our condo feels like a home...not a hotel room that lacks personality. It is comfortable, the view is amazing, you can walk to the beach with very little effort, step out the front or patio door and jump straight into the pool 100 times a day if you'd like and its very hard to leave at the end of your stay.... it becomes your home very quickly. ...oh and the beds are AMAZING!!!!
