About this listing
Paradise ON the beach...Sunsets, WiFi, Cable TV, Pool, Perfect!
35' Livingroom opens to the ocean or can be enclosed with either screen or glass sliding door panels.
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 (email hidden)l 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.
Enjoy Yourselves and treat our home as though it were your own. Sorry, no smoking in the house and pets are not allowed.
35' Livingroom with soaring Cathedral Ceilings and stunning view of the Pacific. Three huge palm ceiling fans add to the tropical romance
We had an absolutely wonderful stay at the villa! Everything was just as described. The villa was extremely comfortable...the beds were super comfortable and everything was ultra clean. The beach was gorgeous and so private. Barbara was a great host. Her directions were spot on and she replied to all my emails and questions very quickly. It was so wonderful that we didn't want to leave the villa at all, not even to eat. We only wish that we had been able to stay longer. We will definitely be back.
Great location. Very spacious house located only steps away from what I would call almost a private beach. Ideal for families; waves fun to surf. Amazing sunsets. I recommend to anyone looking for a place to relax. Many great beaches also within reasonable driving distance for surfing and snorkling. Staff on site super friendly.
An utterly amazing location. Superlatives do not do it justice. The unit fronts right onto a small public beach, literally steps from the door. Spacious facility, pleasantly isolated enough to make one think the beach is their very own. Loved everything about this place and would have Barbara give us a holler if you are ever thinking of selling at some point in the future. LOL. It was that good !
Staff were wonderful with the daily cleaning and made us feel like royalty. Great location close to fantastic restaurants and supermarkets a quick drive away. And, yes, the gelato guy is an Italian expat from Genova. Yum !!
Barbara was very responsive and helped with all my questions. She was able to accommodate my request to stay an extra day. The property was on a beautiful beach and we woke up to an ocean view. It was great to fall asleep to the sound of the waves crashing in. The property is pretty remote, so I would recommend renting a car or golf cart to access grocery stores and restaurants.
The villa was exactly as pictured on Airbnb. The villa had everything we needed and nothing was lacking. The location could not be any better. The pacific ocean is outside the patio doors. You can hear the sound of the waves all through the night, you are that close. The town of Potrero is small and wonderful. You can find everything you need there in town. Brenda at the check in office was wonderful and assisted us if he we had any questions at all. Benito, the handyman is very kind and attentive. I have to also give thanks to Mary Cruz who cleaned our villa everyday. The people of Costa Rica are gracious and very friendly and add so much to the experience we had in Potrero. Potrero has the BEST soda anywhere around in Sol Y Mar (and we ate at many different places.) There are plenty of activities within 5 to 15 minutes from the villa. We paddled boarded with Dulce Vida(in Potrero) rode dune buggies for 2.5 with Gene and Nick from Buggy Adventures(in Potrero) and had an awesome time. About 10 minutes down the road we went sailing on the catamaran Panache(in Flamingo) and I can say that was amazing as well. Villa Romantica is the perfect place if all you want to do is lay in the hammock all day and watch the waves roll in on Playa Prieta, or adventure out to the nearby towns of Flamingo and Tamarindo. Playa Penca is a quick 5 minute walk from the villa down a footpath and is a fantastic beach as well. There is not one negative thing I can say about our 10 day stay at Villa Romantica. We love Costa Rica. We love the food and the people and staying at Barbara's villa topped it off.
From the moment we stepped into the villa it felt warm and welcoming. Barbara was very responsive to all my questions prior to our stay. It was a nice change then staying at a resort. It is paradise. Highly recommended
Amazing!!! Barbara was spot on with directions, such ease. The vibe at the villa was warm, inviting and surroundings are just breathtaking.
