Thank you for entering your review. The review will become available to the system shortly.
House – 5 bedrooms was great! We loved the back patio and bay/ocean view! Hearing the waves crash day and night never gets old! The pool was great. It was nice to listen to our ipods/spodify app with the WIFI and listen to the music on back patio. The beach is literally steps away…. Very little traffic on beach and private. A/C in bedrooms was very cold which was nice. Clean sheets and comfy beds. Janet did a great job keeping everything clean. WIFI worked great. Cable t.v with a few major US cable channels in English.
Janet and Tomas. - As mentioned, Janet kept the house very clean. Tomas did a great job cooking for us. The day before he would ask what we wanted to eat. He would collect funds and go shopping and return you back any change. It was very reasonable. Tomas is an excellent cook! We had him cook dinner 5 out of 7 nights and breakfast 6 of the 7 days. Very, Very good!!!!
Charters: I HIGHLY, recommend YellowFin Charters. This is the company the owner of the house (Joan) Recommends. They were at the airport ready for all 10 of us and about 17 pieces of luggage lol. They were on time and ready. Our Driver was “G” and he was fantastic! More on “G” in a minute.
We did a charter through Yellow Fin in which we did all of the following one day. Horseback riding, zip lining, tubing down waterslide, great lunch, saw how they made coffee, mud bath, and then sat in hot springs. Our guy “G” was GREAT. He was with us the entire tour. We also used Yellowfin to book jet-skis for an hour. I called yellow fin and 2 hours later we had 2 jetskis dropped off right in front of house. We rode for an hour in the bay out front and it was great! Paid cash and on their way they went. Couldn’t have been easier.
Do rent the Golfcarts!
I have much more good to say but ran out of space here on TripAdvisor.
Joan the owner is great and communication top notch!
The Shack in town was excellent for breakfast. We enjoyed the new Brewery in town as well. We ventured down to Coco Loco one night for a sunset dinner as well. The Drifting Ink in Tamarindo proved to be a perfect spot for the three ladies to get some memory tattoos!
I know one family is planning on returning soon and bringing back the members that missed this trip, I hope we can return soon as well. Thank you again for all your help in making this trip run so smoothly. Take care!
We went during the "rainy/slow" season and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The house was private, beautiful and conveniently located right on Playa Potrero - walking distance to several great restaurants. The town of Playa Potrero is small and quaint, with a few markets and great restaurants. We rented golf carts from Chip and Jennifer which allowed us to zip around the local community with ease, including trips to Playa Flamingo and Playa Penca for excellent body surfing and boogie boarding.
The afternoons and evenings were a bit warm and humid(the common areas have no air conditioning, but the bedrooms do). However, we had no problem staying cool with the multiple fans and pool and ocean with perfect temperatures. We really enjoyed the 2-3 evening thunderstorms we experienced while sitting out on the pool deck, sipping Imperials and frozen blended rum drinks while watching the light show over the ocean. We also enjoyed our tropical visitors: a talented iguana, two cute sand crabs active in the evenings, a pair of black phoebes that showcased their dragonfly hunting skills, pelicans, and sea turtles (well offshore).
Our hosts Tomas and Janet were amazing and helped us out anytime we needed them, but stayed out of our way otherwise. Don't pass up the opportunity to let Tomas prepare an amazing meal for you, and make sure to receive one of Janet's great one-hour massages right on the pool deck. They will also shop for you if you ask (for a small additional fee).
In addition to the awesome accommodations at the villa, we really enjoyed the small town vibe of Playa Potrero, the friendly people and the fact that we felt completely safe during our entire trip (everywhere we traveled).
If you are lucky enough to visit the region, I highly recommend a sunset sail, a canopy zip line visit and a boat tour on the Tempisque River.
Overall, we fell in love with the area and will
- perfect location - away from the crowds but not isolated
- private pool (which was very clean)
- seconds away from the beach and the water
- large, clean home
- Tomas and Janet were helpful
- Tomas helped us right away with a clogged kitchen sink
- Janet was available to do massages on a couple of days
- Tomas made us a wonderful dinner (mahi mahi, shrimp, salad, rice, and beans)
- the grounds were cleaned
- we felt very safe in the area
- it was really great to have kayaks, lifejackets, body boards for guests-we were out there every day!
- renting a golf cart is a great idea
- the house has seen better days, as it shows its wear and tear, but it was by no means shabby. I just needs some touch ups. I didn't stop us from enjoying the place - just a small observation.
- bug/ant traps would have been great as we did have ants in the kitchen
