About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 full Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

This amazing home is a must see to appreciate. Large 2000 square foot home that is steps away from beautiful Beaches. Location is everything in paradise and in this tropical haven you have many choices while you rest from your travels or relax in your hammock. This home has everything that you will need within easy walking distance. Dine at the German bakery for breakfast,with an amazing view of Potrero beach. A grocery store is just steps away, and great evening cocktail await at sunset.

In the morning,watch the monkeys (they think they are sneaking) eat the bananas from tress we planted just for them. You will love the sweet red bananas just as much as they do. We are located on a green zone so the local wildlife hides in our backyard. Sip your coffee in your hammock under the Gazebo and the birds will entertain you for hours. Flocks of parrots are in abundance in this morning paradise.

For your luxury, a new large pool and patio are have just been completed. The sunroom is just off the pool and Gazebo area, so weather you chose the sun or shade there is a special place in paradise reserved just for you. If you prefer the ocean it is a straight shot to the beach, right out your door and across the street, no more than a short walk.

Don’t miss the fishing as we fish this same beach every morning and evening and we rarely come home empty. The local Ticos will clean them for you and have the grill fired up as there is nothing better than grilled fish (it cant be any fresher!) A fully stocked kitchen and dining area is at your disposal, if you prefer your meals indoors.

This home can easily accommodate two families and is one of the best values in the area. An unusual feature for businessmen, who cant leave the US behind is our direct line to the US which is included at no additional charge. Parking is easy and secure. Maid service is included with notice. Simply stated, It doesn't get any better than this.

The town of Flamingo is literially on a peninsula,surrounded by water.WE continually see whales, turtles mating-nature that just astounds us.We treasure our adventures in Costa Rica,and we are certain the magic of Costa Rica will bring you back for may years to come.Pura Vida!(To The GOOD LIFE!)

RUSSELL BAITY purchased this house in 2005

Why RUSSELL BAITY chose Guanacaste

You cannot imagine sunset on our Terrace! The sun sinks slowly behind the few clouds.The must be put there just for our pleasure.They turn colors that will take your breath away. As we sit ,and finish the day with a glass of wine,we know that we have a place in the world that is unique and peaceful.The folks we have meet are some of the kindest, friendliest people.It becomes normal to ask a stranger, what brought you here? We all want to know each others unusual story.How did you find this place? Its a place, where I have witnessed people buy property on their first visit, pack up from the US and never look back.Its that kind of place.We are fairly cautious folks, so it took as a while to actually select a home here. We traveled and searched for quite a while. Russ and I are picky! I believe what finally convinced us, besides the obvious ...whales..the fishing..THE MONKEYS in our back yard..the list goes on for ever..but the final thing that drew us in,simply the kindness of the people and the overwhelming beauty of nature.Be at peace when you come to our home.You have truly arrived in natures paradise!

Beautiful and Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent Christmas in this beautiful home. The home is spacious and had everything we needed for a perfect vacation. We spent a great deal of time in the pool and used the outdoor grill for most our meals. We were surrounded by nature and wild life and it was incredibly peaceful. Close to beaches, restaurants and tons of activities. It was a perfect home, perfect location, perfect Christmas.

Absolutely beautiful yard!! The house was amazing and in a great location. The pool and outdoor grill space were awesome to have and we used them both a lot. Walking distance to the beach and to the fruit stand which was really awesome. We will definitely rent this property again!!

A very nice stay in Costa rica

  • 5 of 5

I would say that the house lived up to it's billing. It had plenty of room for my family (wife, and two kids). The location was excellent: walking distance to Playa Potrero, and Brasilito, Flamingo, and Conchal are a short drive away. The Super-Compro supermarket, in Huacas, is a 15 minute drive...there is a farmers market close by, and a bakery also close by....and a mini mart within walking distance or a short bike ride. Liberia airport is only an hours drive. The grounds and the pool were kept up very nice.....and the crew which came every couple of days were very friendly. The owners of the property answered many of our questions prior to our trip, and the hook-up with the property manager (to get the keys, and brief tour of the house and features) went without a hitch. There were also two bicycles that were available for us....a nice perk.

Pros: location, pool, charcoal grill, security system, Wi-Fi, bicycles, ice maker.

Cons: one bedroom did not have air-conditioning, master-bedroom AC was a bit noisy, the refrigerator was a bit old.

Overall: for the price and location, it was an excellent deal, and would return if going to Guanacaste.

perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

We returned last week from the most peaceful, beautiful 18 day vacation. The house is spacious, the pool is perfect, most everything works as promised. The grounds are lovely, well taken care of, and very private. The location is close to food shopping a great fruit stand, restaurants and beaches. We were so relaxed here, some days we never left the property. The owners were helpful and pleasant. Though they were not in Costa Rica during our stay, they had people lined up to assist us, if necessary. We highly recommend this property.

What a GREAT house!

  • 5 of 5

Well we are the first people to stay in this home since its new owner purchased it and renovated it. What a lovely home! Everything was great from the pool to the furnishings to the great layout. The locations was just right. Being here for 2 weeks, we took the opportunity to do so many things. Horseback riding ( in the mountains and on the beach), tubing, zip lining, volcano visiting, Tabacon hot springs day spay (INCREDIBLE), learning how to surf, playing with monkeys at the Congo trail zip line and soaking up the sun! the Costa Rican people were friendly and helpful, and fun to interact with. This was a wonderful trip and a great home to base it out of. We’re looking forward to our next trip here. We’ve got the Costa Rica bug in us!
