Paradise ON the beach...Sunsets, WiFi, Cable TV, Pool, Perfect!

The space

We are located on the 'Gold Coast' of Costa Rica, in the province of Guanacaste, on the the Nicoya Peninsula, Pacific Coast.

We have called our Costa Rican home, Villa Romantica, because it is just that, one of the most romantic spots you can find with sunsets that are truly out of this world. The independent house is directly on the beach, Playa Prieta. We are 50 meters from the warm Pacific Ocean with nothing to obstruct your view or access. We are located within a gated community of twelve homes on six acres of landscaped gardens. As a part of this community we have gardeners, maids, handymen and night guards, all to serve you.

The Livingroom is 32' x 12' and features four comfortable sofas and coffee tables, a large flat screen cabled TV with English language stations...all facing a bank of windows on the sea. The Livingroom can be opened to the open air or enclosed with banks of screen doors or glass doors.

The master en-suite bedroom features a 12' wide window looking out at the ocean. The views from the Queen sized luxury bed are breathtaking. The en-suite bathroom has granite countertops, handmade vessel sinks and travertine floors and wall surrounds. There is a huge glass enclosed shower as well.
The ceiling of the bathroom is translucent to allow in the light and create a feeling of being out-of-doors while allowing complete privacy.

The second bedroom has a Queen sized bed as well as a twin bed which is set up as a daybed/couch. There are sliding glass doors leading out to a private terrace and yard and the outdoor shower.

The third bedroom has two twin beds and shares a bath with the second bedroom. The bathroom is exactly the same as is the master suit bath.

Each of the bedrooms has its own individual AC system.

The kitchen has all the modern touches you would need: Granite countertops and backsplash, Frost free refrigerator, Dishwasher, Stove and oven, Microwave, Blender, Coffee Maker, Rice Cooker, pots and pans, dishes and flatware, etc.

The home is surrounded with a beautiful terrace with a table for six for outdoor dining as well as three different daybeds for relaxing and dreaming while looking at the sea.

There are Palm Fronde ceiling fans in all the rooms as well as in the patio area.

The house is ON Playa Prieta, in the town of Potrero, in a gated community of 12 houses on 6 garden acres called Villas Estival.
Potrero is an authentic Costa Rican village in the midst of the region’s rustic ranch land; you might see cowboys herding their cattle past the town square’s soccer field. There are small restaurants, bars and groceries in the village.

Locally there are many activities including fishing, sailing, kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving, hiking, horseback riding, canopy tours, ATV adventures.

Playa Flamingo is a short 10 minute drive away, with restaurants, shops, nightlife, marina, cruising, deep sea fishing and resort activities. The beach town of Brasalito is another 5 minutes away with more nice restaurants and is a real Tico village. The Conchal Resort and golf course is near here.

Within 30 minutes is Tamarindo and Playa Grande, one of the surfing capitals of the world. There you can surf, take lessons, eat, shop, or just lie on the beach.

From the beach, it's a 1hour drive to the cities of Liberia or Santa Cruz, 11/2 hours to Buena Vista Lodge on Rincon de la Viejo volcano with white water rafting, hot mud baths, thermal springs and much more, 2 hours from the Nicaragua border, and 3 hours to Arenal Volcano, or to the Monteverde Rain Forest.

There were many nice aspects to staying at this villa but things to be aware of (that we weren't based on the description) are that the air conditioning is only in the bedrooms and the other parts of the villa can get quite warm, and that the beach can get crowded with locals who drive their cars up on the beach.

This villa was everything we could have asked for. Located only a few steps from the beach, we were in ultimate paradise. The beach itself is small and private, most of the time were the only ones there. The complex itself is beautiful and the people were the most helpful and accommodating. Just a short drive from some yummy restaurants and other beaches to explore. Wifi connection was a little shotty but who needs wifi when you have all the nature to explore!

Fabulous location! A beautiful beach for walking & beachcombing, with lots of privacy. It's an easy drive to Playa Flamingo for dinner and a few minutes more to Playa Conchal. The pool area is perfect for taking an evening swim. Overall ideal for our group giving us plenty of space to stretch out and relax. We were greeted with monkeys in the trees and iguanas eating mangos from the tree. Wow!

The house is absolutely as described, it is a little piece of paradise. To wake up to that beach everyday is amazing. The sound of the waves can be heard all day and night. And the sunsets are a show you do not want to miss! The beach is wonderful for swimming and we suggest bringing boogie boards, they seemed to be lots of fun for the other guests. You will need a car, there are some things that are walking distance but for shopping for groceries and going out to eat you will need to drive. We shopped in the local shops which were perfect, especially the local produce stand. We ate fresh produce everyday, including pineapple which is a absolute must! We ate at a local restaurant called La Soda Tipica, you can ask at the front office for the exact location, Margina will take great care of you. The food is typical Tico, great quality, fresh and yummy. We also enjoyed La Vaca Loca for a great grilled steak and the Tikki Bar for a good burger. The Wednesday farmers market at the school is a must do, just follow the signs. All in all we absolutely loved Playa Prieta, the house and the area and plan to definitely return. It is safe, lovely and clean. Everything I want in a good family vacation. Barbara was very easy to communicate with and did her best to be great host.

The house is spacious and clean and located on a beautiful sandy beach. There's a well kept pool for swimming. There are many amenities nearby and Flamingo and Tamarindo are a short drive away. I recommend staying here.

Barbara's place, Villa Romantica, was an absolute pleasure to stay at. The house was right on the beach, great amenities, very clean. Barbara was great from day one, giving detailed driving and arrival instructions. The house was great, cleaning crew came exactly when they said, the grounds of the complex were beautiful. Couldn't have asked for a better more relaxing 5 days!!! We will be back!!
