Casa Cerca Del Mar is a comfortable 4 bedroom, 4.5 bath villa, with a warm private pool nestled in lush private gardens, all just steps from the beach.

The Space

CASA CERCA DEL MAR is only 100 feet from the Pacific Ocean. You can enjoy relaxing strolls on the sandy beach, swim in the family-friendly ocean bay, and return for a fresh-water dip in the privacy of your own pool. In the evening enjoy the unforgettable Costa Rican sunsets from the 2nd floor furnished balcony, or the 3rd floor shaded belvedere.

If you want excitement, a huge selection of activities are readily available: scuba diving, snorkelling, turtle expeditions, sport fishing, canopy tours, sunset sails...to name just a few. Costa Rica is famous for its diverse wildlife population. Monkey sightings are common, occasionally even from the pool at Casa Cerca del Mar!

If you are more inclined to relax, Casa Cerca del Mar offers a cool and comfortable home away from home, a place to enjoy the peace and serenity of a quiet setting and just sit and listen to the rhythm of the ocean waves!

Guest Access

The rental includes twice weekly maid service and daily pool and grounds maintenance. Enjoy the two sea-kayaks-- paddle out to explore the nearby islands, or fish for Wahoo, Rooster Fish, or Snapper in the lush fishing grounds of Potrero Bay. The ocean in front of the house is yours to enjoy!

Interaction with Guests

The property manager "Saioa" will be there to greet you and introduce you to the house. And she will gladly help with all your arrangements: From Liberia Airport pick-up to Zip-Lining, Snorkeling, and any number of spectacular Nature and Wildlife Tours

The Neighborhood

The neighborhood is safe and quiet, and the house is easy walking distance from grocery stores, fun restaurants, and night spots. Enjoy the swim-up bar at the Bahia Del Sol just a few minutes walk south on the beach, or stay up late dancing on "Ladies Night Wednesdays" at the Las Brisas nightclub and restaurant, just a few minutes walk north. Don't miss breakfast at The Shack or live music at Coconuts. Speaking of coconuts, our grounds keeper, Benito, will be happy to fetch fresh coconut water for you from the local palms-- watching him open them deftly with his machete is an experience you won't forget! And if you like, we can arrange a traditional Costa Rican chef for your party-- he will shop, cook, serve, and clean-up for as little as $10/plate while you enjoy the spectacular sunsets from the 2nd or 3rd floor verandas.

Getting around

If you want a truly ethnic experience, there are public buses that stop just a block away and will take you to the city of Liberia or to the quaint town of Santa Cruz. Or you can enjoy our private but affordable shuttle service to the surf-towns of Brasilito (with its famous white beach "Playa Conchal,") or to Tamarindo where the waves and partying never end!! If you prefer, one of the local rental car agencies will be more than happy to deliver a rental car to your door. But there is so much fun to be had on foot that you might find you prefer to simply walk the beach to Flamingo, stopping along the way for drinks and snacks at some of the many beachfront restaurants.

Other Things to Note

You will find the high-speed wireless internet with Wi-Fi very helpful when trying to stay in touch with work (ugh!) or family and friends.

  • We had a great stay and although we did not meet Tom his assistant was very helpful. The house is very very close to the beach, and spacious. The kitchen was well stocked with lots of essentials that made cooking pretty easy. Overall was a great choice and would definitely come back.

  • Casa Circa del Mar is perfect! The property looks exactly the same as the photos and is kept immaculate by the housekeeper Sylvia and the Gardner Benito. The property is steps away from the beach and within walking distance of great bars and restaurants. Tom is a great host and was accommodating and responsive every step of the way. The property manager Saioa was a great resource and helped us coordinate all of our rides and excursions. We would highly recommend staying at Casa Circa del Mar!
