Wonderful location and property.
We really appreciate your house and the beautiful location on the beach. We really felt in love with the beach and with the waves sound.
There is truly no substitute for this rare, beach front location.
Everything was just as described and pictured. Both the view and location of the condo were fantastic. The condo was within walking distance to restaurants and shopping. My family and I have traveled to several countries and this was by far our favorite vacation. Thank you Kalli and the staff at Tropical Homes.
Location, location, location! Oh..... and the amazing view! Always the #1 and #2 featured landmark mentioned in reviews. Another guest's expectation exceeded. Just does not get better then this.
Beautiful beaches with everything you need
My family and I stayed here over Christmas for 3 nights. It was just perfect. The kids enjoyed the gentle waves on the beach and the fact that it was steps away! The pool was great to have when tired of the salt water. The location is just exceptional. We had fun exploring the surrounding beaches, each one is different. The beach was quiet, not a ton of people, even on a holiday! There are restaurants and markets within walking distance but we rented a car which made it all super easy. Kalli's condo had absolutely everything we needed! Great views, nice neighbors, good secure location, even a meat thermometer for roasting chicken!!! 5 stars!!!! Thank you Kalli!
We can't say enough how much we enjoyed our vacation in Playa Potrero and House of Summer Sand. I read every single review on this condo and it really helped me to plan our trip. The condo is exactly as pictured. It was comfortable, relaxing and had everything we needed. Our communication with the owner, Kalli, and the concierge service was wonderful. Kalli has prepared a book at the condo FULL of everything you can think of as far as activities, restaurants, tours, etc... to make sure you know everything the area has to offer. This was our first time in Costa Rica and we can't wait to come back. We stayed 9 days and decided to only rent a golf cart this time. The golf cart enabled us to travel quite a bit. We visited 9 different beaches and enjoyed food at many of the local sodas. Please, go to the soda's, you won't regret it. The local food is amazing. We very much enjoyed getting fresh fruit from the stand right next to the condo every morning for breakfast, but don't miss out on having breakfast at least at once at a soda - you won't regret it!!! The water is safe to drink, even at the soda's. We will rent a car next time because there is so much more exploring we want to do. Our favorite beaches were Dantita and Conchal. You can make it to Dantita in Las Catalinas and back with the golf cart. We did it several times but the first time we did I was worried we wouldn't be able to make it back up the hills, but I promise, you will! If you go to Conchal go during the week and earlier in the day to avoid the crowds. Also, at Conchal, don't just stay in the front where the beautiful green pools of water and the shells are, move further down the beach as the water is just as green and the sand is beautiful (less crowded further down also). We spent 1/2 a day in Tamarindo to do some shopping but it wasn't our cup of tea. It is very busy and lot's of people. If you enjoy walking the beach, this condo is for you! The "endless beach" is wonderful for strolling.
Michelle brings up several good points. It's so important for people to know they can confidently drink the water in Costa Rica. Some believe, and I agree, that it's much better than most of our water in the Us.
Also the local cafes, known as sofas, are not only safe and less expensive then tourist cafes, but they offer delicious local food.
Not everyone rents a car, as many prefer to walk. But there are many options like golf carts, even for a portion of your stay.
A new found destination
Being only yards away from the ocean it was wonderful to fall asleep and wake up to the sounds of the rumbling surf doing it's thing. The condo had everything we needed to make for a great getaway. Renting a car from Kalli's location made for an adventurous couple of days. Walking distance to downtown Potrero and short drives to Flamingo, Conchal and Las Catalinas kept us busy, not forgetting the relaxing times on the wrap around deck, pool and playing fetch with the local dogs. We will certainly be spreading the word about "House of the Summer Sand". Thank You very much Kalli.
