Sumptuous 3-BD Home with Pool Near Beach

Casa Sonterra in Surfside/Potrero is an elegant, fabulously equipped 3-bedroom, 2-bath home with a private pool, just a 5-minute walk from the beach.

The living room and kitchen share a large common area, with three sliding-glass doors overlooking the pool area and back yard. There is a wall-mounted TV, blue fabric sofa and loveseat, straight-backed chair, and a guanacaste coffee table, with beach-themed artwork.

Three spacious bedrooms all have newer air-conditioning units and ceiling fans, and all have ample closet space. The upstairs master bedroom has a king-size bed, an attached bathroom, a large walk-in closet and a television. 

A sliding-glass door upstairs opens onto a large private balcony with a small table and two chairs, plus a rocking chair. The view is of palm, guanacaste and plumeria trees, hibiscus, bougainvillea and other flowering plants, with mountains in the distance.  

The two downstairs bedrooms have sliding-glass doors that access the backyard pool area and rancho. One has a queen bed and one has two twins.

The two bathrooms have tiled floors, large mirrors, ceiling fans, and plenty of counter space. The upstairs bath has a shower and tub, while the downstairs bath has a large walk-in shower.

The kitchen features stainless-steel appliances, including a dishwasher, microwave and a newer refrigerator and oven. It has granite countertops, island seating for two, plenty of cabinet and counter space, and even air conditioning. A rectangular dining table made of local guanacaste wood seats six.

A beautiful blue pool anchors the back yard, along with the rancho, a roofed shelter with outdoor dining furniture and ceiling fan. Behind the rancho is a picnic table next to a barbecue grill. 

This 560-square-meter home is surrounded by 7-foot walls, with a decorative gated iron wall in front. It has outdoor cameras and an outdoor/indoor alarm system. Indoor sliding-glass doors have removable door bars for added security.

The house has a separate laundry room with washer and dryer, as well as an attached single-car garage. The home is equipped with good Wi-Fi. Pets are welcome with a small cleaning fee and a deposit. 

Casa Sonterra, Surfside and beyond

There’s good eating and entertainment at the famous Perlas Bar, the Bahía del Sol Hotel and the Costa Rica Sailing Center, which serves food and drink poolside right in front of Potrero Beach. 

A string of other gorgeous beaches are a short drive away, as is the brand-new, state-of-the-art Marina Flamingo.

,· Stayed with kids We REALLY loved this house! I was traveling with four teenage girls and we were so comfortable and happy. Out of all the rentals I’ve stayed at in Costa Rica (8), this one had the least amount of bugs! We never saw one bug in the kitchen, and that is saying something in the tropics. Occasionally a bug or a lizard got in near the door but it wasn’t a big deal. And if any bugs got in they were dead by the time we found them, so they must use a great bug spray. The house layout was great! We felt safe and secure. Beds were comfortable and the house is decorated very nice. Kitchen had all we could ask for. There were even some beach chairs and beach towels. Lots of restaurants were nearby, and two grocery stores. The Costa Rica sailing center had a yoga studio that I attended almost every morning. I made friends and it felt like my home away from home. Breakfast across the street was a treat! (Cash only) We loved playa Flamingo and Conchal, and of course Tamarindo for the teens. Flamingo had the least amount of hecklers and no parking fees- you parked right by the sand in the shade!!! Loved it!
