Wow! Casa Tigre in Potrero/Surfside is a palatial 7-bedroom, 7.5-bath beachfront vacation home that sleeps up to 15 guests. So bring some friends!
As you approach the home from the front, you’ll see a swimming pool shaped like the ace of clubs. In back, you’re just a few paces from the sand of Playa Potrero and the vast Pacific Ocean. And the home’s impressive exterior, white with orange trim, is totally surrounded by immaculate tropical gardens.
When you step inside, you might do a double-take to see the ornately carved pool table (a great rarity in any vacation rental in Costa Rica). But that’s just the game room, and as you wander the entire house, you can almost get lost taking in all it has to offer.
The kitchen has granite counters and island, stainless-steel appliances and rich, red wooden cabinets. Wine glasses dangle from what looks like the wheel of a ship, and the kitchen has windows that look like portholes on a submarine.
Next to the kitchen is a circular bar that seats four, plus a round table with a tablecloth and a picture window overlooking the pool, gardens and ocean. It’s virtually impossible to look out any window at this place and not see something beautiful.
Potrero’s Casa Tigre offers lots of bedrooms, but sorting them out is up to your party. The 7 bedrooms, most with attached baths, come in blues, greens, yellows and whites, with striking varieties of furnishings.
The white-themed master bedroom has a fluffy king-sized bed, a stellar ocean view, a flatscreen TV, desk and of course air conditioning and ceiling fans.
The en-suite bathroom could almost sleep a small family. The baños here feel like Roman bathhouses, with tubs, showers, dual sinks, marble counters and huge floor space. Oh, and the window is roughly the size of a small car.
A magenta bedroom comes with a bed for two, rich red furniture and a garden view.
A blue room has a queen bed, a love seat, a rocking chair and another fabulous view.
A yellow room features two double beds, colorful artwork and you guessed it, the big leaves of a green jungle just outside the windows.
A green room with red drapes has an antique-style four-poster bed, with palm trees in the windows.
And a distinctive white room with a slanted ceiling offers a beautiful steel bed, a TV and a packed bookshelf.
There’s also a green room that looks like a yoga shala, with a V-shaped ceiling, a huge mirror and completely empty wooden floorboards. If you’ve come to Costa Rica to do yoga, this is a perfect space, with a top-floor view of the canopy.
Among the surprising design touches throughout this house (and there are many), there’s one balcony with a dining table made from an authentic but unpainted Costa Rican oxcart wheel.
Potrero is one of the least-known greatest destinations in all of Costa Rica. It’s close to more famous places like Flamingo, Reserva Conchal, Tamarindo, Playas del Coco and Papagayo. Yet Potrero and its southern neighbor Surfside hit a sweet spot between too crowded and too isolated, too rich or too poor, while featuring a ton of restaurant, bar and nightlife options, along with all the adventure everyone else offers.
Want to see jaguars in an animal rescue center? Want to see leatherback turtles laying eggs on the beach? Want to go spelunking in a spectacular cave? Want to visit an active volcano? Want to take a mud bath and wash it off in steaming hot springs?
Virtually every adventure available in Costa Rica can be found here, including whitewater rafting, horseback riding and of course ziplining. The northwestern province of Guanacaste is one of the main adventure capitals in Costa Rica, so if you’re looking for something to do here, you’ll have a lot of choices.
Casa Tigre in Potrero is the ideal HQ for a large group to gather in Costa Rica for a retreat, a family gathering or an epic adventure shared by a bunch of friends.
