Property description

Villa Romantica is located directly ON THE BEACH!!! Playa Prieta, is the most beautiful, undiscovered, almost private beach to be found in this area. There are no other homes in front of Villa Romantica, no roads, no paths, only a lush green lawn with Mango and Palm trees leading to the sand beach and the glorious warm waters and gentle waves of the Pacific Ocean. Villa Romantica is located within the gated and lushly landscaped Villas Estival, a community of 12 private Villas, and our Villa is THE ONLY one located directly on the beach. Other properties may claim to be beachfront property and they may be up a steep hilly road, across a busy road, near a very public beach, etc. but Villa Romantica is actually the only home located directly on all of Playa Prieta. The beach is tree lined offering support for swaying hammocks and shade for reading, relaxing or snoozing. We provide comfortable beach chaises and fluffy oversized beach towels for your comfort.


Sit or eat on the covered lanai and view the ocean, waves, islands and sunsets. Or take in the views from the living room or master bedroom.

The entire house and lanai are tiled in cool travertine and the walls, furniture, upholstery and cushions are all the color of a delicious, rich scoop of French Vanilla Gelato. (Speaking of Gelato, some of the best gelato this side of Verona is sold within walking distance in a shop owned and run by a gelato shop owner from Verona who decided that life 'is a beach' and now calls Potrero home.)

The two large bathrooms are both a special treat. The entire high roof of the bathrooms has been replaced with Lucite and Cana Brava offering clear views of the beautiful blue sky during the day and the stars at night. While showering indoors, you will feel as though you are in the outdoors, yet with complete privacy (and no bugs).

The air-conditioned bedrooms are quiet and peaceful. The Master bedroom features a high Queen sized bed from which you can enjoy views of the beach and sea. The master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with vessel sink, large custom glass shower and wonderful natural light from the ceiling.

The second bedroom features a queen sized bed as well as a twin bed which is set up as a lounging couch. There are sliding doors from both of these bedrooms leading to a private patio and the outdoor shower.

The third bedroom has two twin beds as well as air conditioning and a ceiling fan.

The kitchen is completely equipped with all the cooking utensils and serving pieces you would need. There is a dishwasher, microwave, stove with oven, large refrigerator, of course, a double sink and there is a charcoal grill available for your use.

Top this all off with maid service and you too will call Villa Romantica, 'Paradise Found'. Indeed...Life IS a beach.

Car: Recommended

We are located on the 'Gold Coast' of Costa Rica, in the province of Guanacaste, on the the Nicoya Peninsula, Pacific Coast.

The house is ON Playa Prieta, in the town of Potrero, in a gated community of 12 houses on 6 garden acres called Villas Estival.

Potrero is an authentic Costa Rican village in the midst of the region’s rustic ranch land; you might see cowboys herding their cattle past the town square’s soccer field. There are small restaurants, bars and groceries in the village.

Locally there are many activities including fishing, sailing, kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, hiking, horseback riding, canopy tours, ATV adventures.

Playa Flamingo is a short 10 minute drive away, with restaurants, shops, nightlife, marina, cruising, deep sea fishing and resort activities. The beach town of Brasalito is another 5 minutes away with more nice restaurants and is a real Tico village. The Conchal Resort and golf course is near here.

Within 30 minutes is Tamarindo and Playa Grande, one of the surfing capitals of the world. There you can surf, take lessons, eat, shop, or just lie on the beach.

From the beach, it's a 1hour drive to the cities of Liberia or Santa Cruz, 11/2 hours to Buena Vista Lodge on Rincon de la Viejo volcano with white water rafting, hot mud baths, thermal springs and much more, 2 hours from the Nicaragua border, and 3 hours to Arenal Volcano, or to the Monteverde Rain Forest.
