About this listing
Located on a quiet street between Flamingo and Potrero, 300 meters from the beach, Casa Rana has two upstairs bedrooms, sleeping four. There is a shared bath and large balcony.
Rent one or both upstairs rooms for the time of your life! Leslie will serve a fabulous breakfast each morning, either by the pool or up on your balcony - your choice!
Concierge services are also available. Knowledgeable in all of the local places: restaurants, bars, night life, beaches, and adventures, you are guaranteed the time of your life.
Enjoy your own backyard jungle and pool!
Run of the house, including yard and pool.
How much interaction do you need? I can help with recommendations and arrangements, and I will prepare you a fabulous breakfast each morning. In the evening, a snack and beverage will be made available to you before you head out for sunset! Otherwise, enjoy your space! The entire upstairs with private balcony is yours, and I tend to avoid the pool area when my guests are using it so they can enjoy it on their own.
I love my neighbors and my neighborhood! There are folks from ariound the world, so it is quite cosmopolitan, and cows and horses routinely graze up and down the roads. There is plenty of nightlife without having to get in the car, and you will feel welcomed.
The short walk to numerous beaches is like frosting on the cake!
A bus goes along the main road, and bikes can be rented from Claudia down the road. Ecotrans runs a shuttle service from the airport in Liberia, and here are several car rental agencies in Potrero and Flamingo.
Many people traveling are concerned with safety. We do have a security system and a neighborhood security patrol. You can sleep soundly at Casa Rana!
Very few rules. Outdoor smoking only. Pets okay! Please let me know what time you want breakfast the day prior. And no use of the pool after midnight, please.
Visiting Casa Rana was pleasant and relaxing.
Leslie was a very gracious host, and is very knowledgeable about places to visit in Costa.
There are about a half a dozen little restaurant/bars within a 10 minute walk, but, I would definitely recommend renting a car, as there is not much to see in Potrero, and the closest beach is Playa Flamingo, which is a 30 minute walk on the beach or road.
It gets very dark after the 6pm sunset, so you must be careful walking on the road. If you are going to simply relax and get away from it all, I would recommend Casa Rana.
Suzanne was happier at Flamingo, and, when she asked to book, I directed her to Flamingo or Conchal, where there are white sand beaches. Playa Potrero is a grey sand beach, and we are very close. 300 meters or so.
We do have a tv, and Suzanne was welcome to use it, yhough there are not vs in the guest rooms. Perhaps we will get one, though most of our guests stay outside while they are here.

About the Host, Leslie
I am retired and spending much of my time in Central America. I love to cook, so my two spare rooms are available. When you come to Costa Rica, you will have a beautiful breakfast each morning!! I love my adopted country, and, if you choose to stay with me, you will love it as well!
When I am there I boogy board, bike ride, do yoga and sea kayak. As my guest you are welcome to use my equipment during your stay.
I love to cook, and host pizza/movie night every other week in my home.
