About the Property

3 Bed Condo | 2-1/2 Bath | Private Balcony | 24-hour Security

Casa Blanca is a boutique condo with only 4 units in the complex! You will frequently have the pool and other common areas to yourself. This is not a typical condo with neighbors on either side. Three rooms have private balconies that face the forested greenbelt area and makes it feel like you are in a tree house surrounded by nature. With only four units in the complex it feels more like living in a wing of a large house. To get to the front door you pass only one other unit.

Located only 1 hour from Liberia Airport with easy access by shuttle or rental car.

Expansive, modern, 3-bedroom, 2-1/2 bath condominium located within a 3-minute walk from the beautiful, tranquil beach of Playa Potrero.

Wonderful beaches, local restaurants, bars, grocery stores, fresh fruit/vegetable market -- all within easy walking distance.
Nearby beaches include: Playa Flamingo, Conchal, Brasilito, Tamarindo, Penca, Prieta, Azucar (Sugar Beach).

Equipped with all the modern comforts of home: chef's kitchen with breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances, granite counters, hardwood cabinets, high-end furniture, comfortable bedrooms with fine linens, sleek contemporary bathrooms with custom glass shower enclosures and vessel sinks. Water is clean and drinkable.

Living/Dining area is great for entertaining (or just relaxing) with double-slider doors that open onto a private balcony overlooking a serene, forest greenbelt area where you'll hear howler monkeys, birds singing and the soothing sound of ocean waves. If you watch for the swaying branches you can occasionally see the howler monkey's from the condo.

Split bedroom arrangement: master on one side with en-suite bathroom. 2 additional bedrooms share "Jack & Jill" bathroom (each bedroom has separate access). Powder room (toilet and sink) in main foyer.

Enjoy lush surroundings, tropical birds, monkeys and gorgeous beaches. Whether you want to just sit and relax or enjoy the spectacular national parks, charming villages or explore many adventures such as sailing, fishing, surfing, scuba diving, snorkeling, horseback riding, cycling, zip-lining, mountaineering, white-water rafting .... Costa Rica offers all of this and more!

What Casa Blanca Guests are Saying About:

Casa Blanca: The house is beautiful and fully equipped, and by fully equipped I mean everything you may need and more is available to you at the house, the house was well organized and very clean… Fantastically equipped, spacious, air-conditioned apartment/condo. Absolutely everything was provided in the condo except food and drink. We enjoyed early mornings on the private balcony watching and listening to birds, monkeys and surf. Spent a week and had a lovely clean pool to ourselves… We had so much fun in Costa Rica and your condo is beautiful… Condo is very well equipped… Ideal for complete relaxation and/or adventure.

Owners and Manager: Property manager was always available and very helpful… Extremely efficient and helpful property manager… The owner very attentive… Property Manager is local if any help is needed.

Area / Location: Location is perfect...nearby restaurants and supermarkets makes it an ideal location not to mention the easy access to the beach in Potrero and only a few minutes drive to incredible beaches like La Penca, Danta and Dantita… What a cute little village and everything one needs within walking distance of "Casa Blanca" condo. Grocery store, liquor store and restaurants… Fabulous central location… Great location.

Be a tourist, relax at the beach or by the sparkling pool ... it's all Pura Vida (pure life) in paradise!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2015

About the owner: We have traveled to Central America and the Carribean on vacation for many years. When we arrived in the Potrero and Flamingo area, it just felt like home. Walking into "Casa Blanca" we knew we were home! We purchased Casa Blanca knowing that some day we will spend a large part of our retirement years there. Until then, we plan on sharing it with family, friends, and perhaps you!

Why the Owner Chose Guanacaste, Costa Rica:
Why this property? This condo has the best features of a house and a condo combined with on-site, 24-hour security. When entering the living room we were immediately impressed with how open it feels. This is not a typical condo with neighbors on either side. Three rooms have private balconies that face the forested greenbelt area and makes it feel like you are in a tree house surrounded by nature. With only four units in the complex it feels more like living in a wing of a large house. To get to the front door you pass only one other unit. Since there are currently only two one-bedroom units that are occupied, you will frequently have the pool and surrounding areas to yourself.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Potrero/Surfside is located on the "Gold Coast" of Costa Rica close to Playa Flamingo which is consistently rated one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. A quiet, peaceful area in a friendly neighborhood with a variety of restaurants where, several times a week, live music can be enjoyed. There are several grocery stores and a wonderful fresh fruit/vegetable market is a local favorite. Friendly people and great food and, if you're looking for a large array of shops, restaurants and nightlife, Tamarindo is only 20 minutes away. "Casa Blanca" is on a quiet street and, because its location is at the rear of the property, 3 private balconies enjoy the serene wooded, greenbelt zone where you often hear howler monkeys, birds singing and the soothing sound of the surf in the background. The Guanacaste region, located on the Pacific Ocean, experiences little rain and consistent heat from November to April. May to October is considered "green" season where you can expect rain at some point during the day or evening. October is typically the wettest month. Its hot, dry climate makes tropical dry forests the province's natural vegetation type. The one exception is the highland portion of the province which consists of the upper Pacific slopes in the Guanacaste Cordillera and the northern half of the Tilaran Cordillera. The cool, moist conditions along these ridges support luxuriant cloud forests. With 300+ days of sunshine, consistent warm temperatures, less humidity and rainfall than the rest of the country, this is paradise! The area boasts some of the most beautiful beaches and, for nature lovers, offers so much to explore. Gorgeous beaches, wonderful sunrises and mesmerizing sunsets ... Pura Vida as the locals say which means Pure Life!
