Amazing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Lillian was our first interaction and she was the most responsive and helpful person even months before our visit. She helped us by scheduling a couple tours for us and they were all great!

The housekeepers/cook Alex and Sandra were also so helpful and sweet! They taught us how to get a coconut open with a machete and tasting a fresh coconut compared to the US coconut. To top it all off, Sandra was one of the most amazing Costa Rican cooks, we went shopping before getting there but I think having them go shopping for us got the freshest food! Breakfasts and dinners were great! Alex keeps the grounds very clean and green!

The house has an amazing view of the ocean and the sunsets were amazing. The kitchen has everything that you could need.

Awesome Property and Easy People to Work With

  • 5 of 5

This house was even better than the photographs showed and we had zero complaints. The first floor is primarily made up of a great room/kitchen area which sets between two master suites (also a 1/2 bathroom, utility room and beach closet are on this floor). The great room was very comfortable, with multiple seating options and the open floor plan to the kitchen allowed plenty of room for cooking and dining. The other two bedrooms were on the 2nd floor which feels like an almost complete separate area of the house. Everything was in great shape, up to date and very clean.

My wife and I had one of the master suites and my parents took the other. It was such a nice setup because the suites (which by the way include huge bathrooms and large walk in closets) give you the feel of being in your own private hotel, while the great room and kitchen are a perfect common area for larger groups to mingle.

Alex and his wife Sandra live in the apartment attached to the garage outside and they serve as housekeeping, grounds maintenance and guard. They were very polite and helpful at all times. Neither spoke much English, and my group didn't speak much Spanish but we managed communication with little difficulty and they helped us learn a little Spanish along the way. Lillian was the property manager and she was very polite and helpful getting us checked in. On our check in night, she met us in Potrero and we followed her up to the property where she showed us the property and explained all the amenities.

A few things to note about the property:

1. Lillian advised that the water was good to drink and we thought the taste was very good. We are from Missouri/Kansas USA and had no problems with the drinking water at all.

2. The house comes with beach towels and mats which they let you bring down to any of the local beaches. Sandra washed them for us each day when we would get back from the beach.

3. The house is up in the hills and the roads are a little steep/rough to get there so I would recommend a 4WD vehicle. We stayed in January, had 4x4 Suzuki Grand Vitara and had no problems. You might be able to get up there with a 2WD vehicle taking it slow, but I'd play it safe and go with a 4WD SUV. It takes about 10 minutes to get from the house down the hill into Potrero.

4. Be sure to talk to Sandra/Alex about which grocery stores to use. They provided us with some valuable money saving directions.

Amazing Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful property with wonderful views. The house was the perfect size for our family, and the house staff keeps it well maintained. The property manager, Lilian, was great to work with and set up an array of amazing excursions for us. This is a great vacation for those that want to relax in solitude, or those that want to get out and be adventurous on their own. Would definitely go back.

Magnificient property and great location and views. House staff was great and Lilian the property manager had everything set up for us as requested. Great vacation venue for people that like being in charge of their own adventures but want to stay in low pressure luxury. We'll be returning for sure.
