Isla en el Cielo: Home with Guesthouse, Potrero
3-BD Luxury Home Plus 2-BD Apartment with Pool

Wow! If you can find a finer mountaintop villa anywhere, book it. Isla en el Cielo: Home with Guesthouse in Potrero is a huge, gorgeous property, rightly named “Island in the Sky,” with a 3-bedroom main home, a 2-bedroom guesthouse, a beautiful pool and expansive views of the Pacific coastline below.

The main home has 3 bedrooms, all with king or queen beds, each with its own big closet and bathroom. And there’s a fourth bathroom off the hall.

The guesthouse/apartment, just downstairs from the main home and with its own ocean view, has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. It just underwent a remodel from top to bottom, so everything there is brand-new.

Even the bathrooms are elegant here – some with double sinks, separate shower and tub, and fine stone work. The living room contains all-new furniture, including a blue-gray modular sofa, wooden tables and a giant TV.

The dining area features a long wooden table, and beyond that is a quartz kitchen island. The immaculate kitchen has quartz counters, white cabinets, stainless-steel refrigerator, stove, microwave and dishwasher.

The home is air-conditioned but is also swept by mountain breezes that keep it cool, with lots of natural light and open space. Outside, the rear patio has new dining and lounging furniture, plus a barbecue. Past a landscaped area and down a stairwell is a large, newly renovated swimming pool with a coralline deck.

This property has three gated entrances, a 3-car parking garage and an on-site caretaker.

Sunsets are the most beautiful I have ever seen So much room in the property to spread out and everyone finds their own space. Pool was warm all day. Sunsets were amazing. Property is conveniently located to many beaches, restaurants, and attractions. On site grounds keeper was very helpful and the property management company was very attentive.

Amazing, This property was so beautiful that we said multiple times that we could have done none of the excursions and just stayed at the house and still have a wonderful time! The pictures do not do it justice - they are accurate, just not as wonderful as the real thing. There was patio furniture which I think I may not have seen in pictures and was pleasantly surprised. We left our floats behind, hoping at least a few families can get some use out of them. This was our first experience with an infinity edge, I felt that this one was safe for humans, not so much pool toys (but I wasn't worried about the toys)! The house is about a 10 minute drive up/down a steep, curvy, and occasionally muddy "road" and we had one person with motion sickness, but after the first day he knew to take benadryl before every outing. 4x4 needed, but I think that was a given, not just for the house. And the road was part of the fun of the experience! I think the ONLY thing that was not as expected was that the tub in the house master has extremely low water pressure so our 6/9 year olds were disappointed that they could not bath as expected. The water in the house (but not a problem for the apartment) never got past a little warm, there was always still a chill. Again, the 4 teens staying in the apartment said they had hot water. We had 8 people, 4 in each house and had plenty of space. I might recommend more towels for larger groups. Loved it!

Thu, Jun 22 – Thu, Jun 29, 2023 Isla en el cielo 5BR XXXXX Fantastic Trip The property was everything as advertised and more. The onsite host/caretaker Maikol was very helpful and really made everything easy. A couple tips for first timers to this area. Make sure you do your grocery shopping in Liberia before heading west to the house, groceries are a little scarce and a lot pricier than in the city. Also, for some reason, Waze routing from the airport in Liberia will put you on a crazy two hour route. Use google maps instead for a 1 hour and 10 minute trip which is pretty good.
