Reviewer Comments:

Our family, consisting of 6 adults and 2 children, recently stayed 8 days at Casa Alta and felt very comfortable and safe. We would definitely stay there again and recommend highly this rental property to others. Krain was very helpful and was always there if we needed anything. Definitely a great location close to the beach.

Place of Healing

  • 5 of 5

After I suffered a personal tragedy, my girlfriends brought me to this home for a girls' getaway. It was so beautiful, and I was so grateful. The home is gorgeous. And peaceful. There is a huge back patio and awesome pool that served as the perfect backdrop for our reunion. We spent nearly all of our time outside by the pool lounging and talking the night away! Everyone had their own room, which was great. The outside area is so huge, it can accommodate many more people than those in our party. The house is steps from the beach, too. We would walk down the beach for lunch at the restaurant Beach House, and walk up the beach for lunch at the Sailing Center! Great location. We watched sunsets on the beach every evening--it was a place of healing for sure. After sunset, the huge moon and stars came out. God Bless Costa Rica. Thank you PB, JP and MC for taking me to this paradise. Love you girls!

Reviewer Comments:

This was my 5th time to Costa Rica and my husbands maybe 20th. Upon arrival into Potrero, I voiced my concern. Costa Rica is a favorite of ours and this was by far the sketchiest town we have ever stayed in. We were robbed of all valuables within 2 hours of being at Casa Alta, security didn't exist. Had I known the area I would have hired 24 hour security, run security cameras (had there been any) and applied the window and door bars myself. When my sister checked in the pool guys were cleaning the pool with their shirts over their faces (sketchy!), the alarm didn't work and the front "security" gate didn't lock. The house is directly across the street from a migrant worker compound. The house reeked of some sort of lacquer. Not ideal. Try and spruce up the woodwork a few wks before guests arrive. I mean what else can I say? Horrible start to a vacation and to be honest, none of us felt safe for the rest of the trip. I suggest exploring another town. I forgot to mention we had 3 toddlers staying with us. My mind hasn't stopped imagining one of us being home with child when the robbery occurred. I could go on and on but what's the point.

Owner's Response: On behalf of both the home owner and our property management team, we deeply regret that you had your items stolen. We can only imagine how shocking and unnerving that must have been. Neither this home, nor any other of the homes we manage in the area, have experienced a break-in before. It was a shock to all of us. Our alarm specialist later ran analytics on the security system. The report showed that, at the time of the incident, the alarm was not set and a window was left open. Still, that is no consolation to you, our valued guest, and we are all saddened about the way the events unfolded. We are grateful that our home owners immediately and fully refunded all rental monies to you, and our property management team was happy to relocate you to other homes at significantly discounted prices. We also would like to report that the home has a new safe, and we have confirmed that the alarm system is fully functional. On a personal note, we all live in the same area, and we feel grateful to be able to live among these gorgeous beaches, raise our children here, and enjoy our laid back, slower-paced lifestyle. We believe this is a great place to vacation as a family. Still, we always advise our guests to use caution and secure their homes when leaving, since crimes of opportunity exist here as they do in all other parts of the world.

We had a wonderful time. The home is lovely, close to the beach and all activities. Our only concern was the security. It was not working and this caused the children to be worried at night. We felt this should have been in place.

Costa Rica is a great country but didn't know the property backed to a main road. Not super horrible but something to keep in mind. The house was very nice, the pool needs work however.
