Playa Potrero apartment description

Casa Jardín (Garden House) is a peaceful property ideally located at Playa Potrero, Pacific Ocean of North Costa Rica, two miles from Flamingo, in a quiet neighborhood surrounded by nature and wildlife, close enough to bars and restaurants and far enough from traffic and nightlife.

The 2 apartments we offer for rent have been designed and equipped like a real home.

FIRST FLOOR APARTMENT (1-4 persons):
- living room with charming and cosy furniture, 32'' plasma screen TV with USB connection, Hi-Fi CD player/radio, futon couch/bed for 2 persons
- beautiful kitchen made of cedar wood, equipped with full size fridge, microwave oven, electric stove, coffee maker, dishwasher, waste disposal and all kitchenware
- 1 bedroom with King-size bed (2m x 2m), drawer chest, table, TV
- bathroom with a brand new and large hydro-massage cabin for two persons
- washing machine in the apartment and clothesline outside
- private terrace with table and chairs for 4

SECOND FLOOR APARTMENT (1-5 persons):
- living room with comfortable furniture, TV, couch/bed (Queen-size, 160cm large), 1 single bed, air conditioning
- beautiful kitchen made of Guanacaste wood, equipped with full size fridge, microwave oven, electric stove, coffee maker, dishwasher, waste disposal and all kitchenware
- 1 bedroom with King-size bed (2m x 2m), wood closet, plasma screen TV, air conditioning
- bathroom with an extra large shower cabin
- washing machine/dryer combo
- large balcony with table and chairs for 4, nice view on the garden, pool and orchard

Both apartments: ceiling fans, high-speed Internet, cable TV, hot water, private parking lot in the property, electric gate with remote control.

From the terrace or balcony of your apartment you can enjoy the scenery of the charming salt-water pool with its waterfall and jacuzzi, observe the multitude of tropical birds and enjoy the visit of the monkeys if you are lucky. Behind the house you can pick your own fruit in a wonderful orchard: mango, orange, lime and a variety of tropical fruit (subject to availability in season).

The beautiful pool is eco- and health-friendly (no chlorine added), safe for the little ones and large enough to swim a few laps (36 feet/11 meters long).

A traditional Costa Rican rancho and several lounge chairs are at your disposal by the pool, along with an outside shower. There is a play for the kids, with slide and swing. The outdoor installations are shared with the owners of the house.

The beach of Potrero is at 1/2 mile from the house. It is a long and quiet beach just North from Flamingo, province of Guanacaste. It is one of the only places around where one can swim safely in the Ocean most of the year. All the beaches around are marvelous: Playa Penca, Playa Prieta, Playa Danta (las Catalinas), Playa Flamingo, Playa Conchal, Playa Grande, etc. Thanks to the orientation of the coast facing the west, the sunsets are especially gorgeous from all those places.

In the area of Potrero/Flamingo you will find a large range of nautical activities like sailing, snorkeling, scuba-diving, sea-kayaking, paddling, etc., as well as bike rental and horse riding, to name but a few. This little town also offers a choice of restaurants, bars, grocery stores and basic services at a walking distance from the apartment.

Tamarindo is a busier town at half an hour distance by car if you feel like shopping, surfing and see the Leatherback turtles in season.

Last but not least, we enjoy a radiant sun and a warm climate all year :-) as the province of Guanacaste is the driest area of Costa Rica.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  About the owner: We are a French/Costarican family with two kids, speaking English, Spanish and French.

                  Why the Owner Chose Playa Potrero:
                  Quiet, touristic enough but not too much.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                  The large orchard by the house, the privacy so important in a place that can be busy sometimes, the character of the main house, the green spaces of the property, the peaceful atmosphere of the place and the walking distance from the beach and grocery stores.
