Very pleasant stay in Potrero
If you are looking for adventure and a taste of the local culture, this little condo is the perfect home base in Potrero. It is clean, safe and peaceful. A car is highly recommended to visit all the beautiful long sandy beaches between Las Catalinas and Tamarindo with lots to see, great restaurants and beautiful shopping.
We enjoyed Pura Vida Ride for stand-up-paddle boards, kayaks, mountain bikes and hiking. We went every morning to Catalinas for great mountain bikes, we rode through awesome landscapes for miles and miles, then went up a rather high mountain with panoramic ocean view.
GREAT PLACE to relax, owner was very fast to respond to any problems and fixed immediately. Edwardo was great in helping out. Pool is huge and not busy, If we had a car or golf-cart it would of been easier but the bus runs by right out front and the taxi's are reasonable.
A Very pleasant stay in Potrero
This was our first time visiting Costa Rica. We weren't sure what to really expect, but it was quite a pleasant experience. Francesco was very helpful in supplying us with information about Potrero. His restaurant reccomendations were spot on and our dining experiences were positive. We felt very safe and secure there and certainly enjoyed the amenities. The pool especially was very inviting and relaxing, although devoid of much shade. The weather was fantastic. Our cottage although small was adequate for us. It was clean and neat and convenient for getting around Potrero. The staff was very helpful and friendly even down to the house keepers and the the men that do the landscaping. We learned what Pura Vida meant.
We loved our month stay in Potrero. The condo is just big enough for our family of four. The sunsets over the ocean are beautiful, lush vegetation and gardens are very well maintained. The kids loved the pool. Potrero is a nice quiet village, the people are nice and it feels safe. There are many beautiful beaches to explore nearby and lovely walks to do. For a little more action, Tamarindo is only 30 minutes away. I highly recommend this beautiful condo for a family vacation, couples or friends.Tout was perfect and we would love to return!
Beautiful setting at Potrero Beach
We enjoyed our stay immensely in this little hideaway. The beaches in the area were stunning and the views from the patio of this property were lovely. The condo is clean and neat and just enough space for four people. Hummingbirds visit the lovely Hibiscus trees next to the patio every morning. We loved sipping our coffee and watching them come feed. The pool at the villa is gorgeous and a great way to relax at the end of the day.
Highly recommend this condo and area for vacationing. Many wonderful restaurants are located nearby as well.
Sensational sunsets or hummingbird heaven. I struggled with the title as both were so fitting. We are 4 adventurous women who rented this perfect villa for a week. It is directly across from the ocean so sitting on the patio was a highlight for our daily Costa Rican coffee and our evening wine as we raved about the views and incredibly colorful sunsets. Every morning we shared our coffee on the patio with multiple species of hummingbirds and beautiful butterflies. We loved to walk the beach, a spectacular way to start and end our days.
The unit is nearly brand new, comfortable, and and set-up for a variety of different vacationers. Twin bedroom or queen and two bathrooms made it easy for the 4 of us to sleep very comfortably and get ready for our day. The AC was perfect as it was very warm most days.
We rented a car, it's highly recommended, but we could walk to a great little breakfast/lunch place called Soda Marcel and the famous Las Brisas open air bar. A few other eating places are within walking distance, terrific if you don't feel like driving. The condo association also has their own private beach within walking distance or a 4 minute drive. The sand was soft, the beach was deserted and the water is clear and warm, the beaches overall, are just amazing. After a day at the beach, we usually hit their pool, with comfortable chairs, just to unwind. Within a 5 minute walk there are 2 local, small grocery stores. Fresh fruit, coffee and the necessities are easy to acquire. Several larger grocery stores are a short drive away.
We toured the area, visiting equally spectacular beaches and enjoying the local food. I have decided that Costa Rica is a place to wine and dine, delicious fresh food at very reasonable rates. We visited Sugar Beach, Dante Beach, Brazalito and Flamingo. We took an overnight excursion to see Lake Arenal, the Volcano, the hot springs and the rain forest. We viewed Lake Arenal, hiked the trails through the rain forest and relaxed in the natural, volcanic hot springs. The roads getting there are narrow and windy, but paved the whole way. My friends will say that I am not great in the car, particularly on the corners! Our other big excursion was the 50 foot Serendipity sailboat, highly recommend this as well.
The owners, Francesco and Tracy are very easy to deal with. They were prompt and helpful in answering our questions. We can't wait to return to their inviting villa. Pura Vida!
