Playa Potrero house description

This incredible ocean view home is only about 100 feet from the Pacific Ocean. You can enjoy relaxing strolls on the sandy beach, swim in the family-friendly ocean bay, and return for a fresh water dip in the privacy of your own pool. In the evening enjoy the unforgettable Costa Rican sunsets from the 2nd floor furnished balcony, or the 3rd floor shaded belvedere.

If you want excitement, a huge selection of activities are readily available: scuba diving, snorkelling, turtle expeditions, sport fishing, canopy tours, sunset sails...to name just a few. Costa Rica is famous for its diverse wildlife population. Monkey sightings are common, occasionally even from the pool at Casa Cerca del Mar!

If you are more inclined to relax, Casa Cerca del Mar offers a cool and comfortable home away from home to enjoy the peace and serenity of a quiet beach in Costa Rica...Just sit and listen to the rhythm of the ocean waves!

                      Car: Necessary

                      This comfortable villa includes twice weekly maid service and daily pool and grounds maintenance. Enjoy our two sea-kayaks (one two-person - one one-person)-- and paddle out to explore the nearby islands, or fish for Wahoo, Rooster Fish, or Snapper in the lush fishing grounds of Potrero Bay. The ocean in front of the house is yours to enjoy!

                      The property manager 'Saioa' will be there to greet you and introduce you to the house. And she will gladly help with all your arrangements: From Liberia Airport pick-up to Zip-Lining, Snorkeling, and any number of spectacular Nature and Wildlife Tours.

                      The neighborhood is safe and quiet, and the house is easy walking distance from grocery stores, fun restaurants, and night spots. Enjoy the swim-up bar at the Bahia Del Sol just a few minutes walk south on the beach, or stay up late dancing on 'Ladies Night Wednesdays' at the Las Brisas nightclub and restaurant, just a few minutes walk north along the beach. Don't miss breakfast at The Shack or live music at Coconuts. Speaking of coconuts, our grounds keeper, Benito, will be happy to fetch fresh coconut water for you from the local palms-- watching him open them deftly with his machete is an experience you won't forget! And if you like, we can arrange a traditional Costa Rican chef for your party-- he will shop, cook, serve, and clean-up for as little as $10/plate while you enjoy the spectacular sunsets from the 2nd or 3rd floor verandas.

                       

                      Manager info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About: When my wife and I both retired from high-stress health service careers, we decided to devote our lives to escaping the 'hustle and bustle' of life: Costa Rica made that dream come true, and we feel we have managed to turn the clock back on our lives, never feeling healthier or younger!

                      Why Playa Potrero:
                      It was love at first sight! A unique 3-level home in a quiet exclusive neighborhood...Beautiful private garden... Monkeys visiting the mango tree next to our own pool... The sounds and sights of the ocean from our master bedroom...How much better could it be???

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      One of things we like bast about our location it that the ocean in front of the villa is safe for swimmers of all ages-- There are no hidden obstacles or severe drop-offs, and no dangerous currents or rip-tides. The kids can safely enjoy body-boarding, and very occasionally, (about once a year) an ocean 'swell' from the North will build great surfing waves. But for the most part the ocean outside the Casa is tame and safe for swimmers of all ages and skill levels. And I'm certain you'll be as surprised as we are when you walk out onto the beach and scan the two miles of beach to your left and then the mile of beach to your right and see maybe only a handful of beach-goers...you'll instantly realize the entire bay is all YOURS to enjoy! Please take the time to explore Playa Penca just to the North, a bit beyond the 'Las Brisas' beach bar and restaurant. The waves are a little rougher there, but the ocean and beach are pristine and you will find some great shade trees to laze under while watching the Pelicans dive for fish in the cove.
