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

Surfside is a delightful little town on the southern outskirts of Potrero (between Flamingo and Las Catalinas). It’s very popular with both visitors and expats, boasting a three-block main street lined with restaurants, bars, shops, tour agencies, a grocery store and a pharmacy. 

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.

A Beautiful, private location close to Everything! Our experience with Special Places of Costa Rica (the host) was Excellent. Communication was easy and Marisol, who was our agent, was always quick to respond to any questions. Check in and out was very simple. The house was Amazing! A Beautiful home that was well appointed and very comfortable. The pool was well kept and VERY refreshing. The private back yard area was also very nice. Possibly the best thing about this property was the LOCATION! Everything we could possibly need was just a short walk away, with many restaurants to choose from including high-end beach view locations, Breweries, and more budget friendly taco stands. There is also a grocery store right at the end of the street. We had an excellent time while staying there and would highly recommend it to others!
