Villa Catalina 10, Potrero
3-BD, 2-Story Luxury Villa

Villa Catalina 10 in Potrero is a 3-bedroom, 3.5-bath, split-level villa on a gorgeous green hill overlooking Costa Rica’s Playa Prieta. Unit 10 is the largest of the luxury villas at Villa Catalina on this hillside development, where the steepness of the terrain offers stunning, unobstructed views.

Big, wrap-around terraces furnished with dining tables, lounge chairs, a swinging chair and a barbecue offer panoramic, 180-degree views of hills, ocean and sky.

And we haven’t even talked about the interior yet! Vaulted ceilings, sumptuous furnishings, elegant art, air conditioning and ceiling fans make this a visually stunning and eminently comfortable space.

Three bedrooms downstairs feature a king bed, queen bed and bunk bed. All have televisions and private bathrooms. The gleaming wooden bedroom furniture is beautiful, and so are the window views.

The living room on the upper floor features a sectional sofa, flatscreen TV and big ocean-facing windows.

The kitchen has spacious granite counters and stainless-steel appliances, and a window offers its own ocean view. A bar seats four and an oval glass dining table seats six, offering plenty of room for entertaining. There’s also a laundry room.

Great vacation stay The house was awesome and right up the street from several beautiful beaches. The pool is a great place to watch the sunset. The house had everything you could think of to use. Great beach towels - just wish there were a few beach chairs. The kitchen had anything you could think of and all in great shape. Wish we could have used a better grill as the one we used had a lot of flair ups

Beautiful, Amazing… This town home was absolutely perfect. The gated neighborhood was fabulous and the infinity pool was beautiful! View from the room and pool was gorgeous. Loved this area, great little grocery stores nearby, and restaurants in Potrero were fabulous. Only downfall we had to purchase chairs for the beach which we left behind but actual beach chairs would have been great to have. Otherwise a perfect place to stay!!!!

Beautiful Sunsets We just stayed at this condo with the beautiful views. It’s a private and quiet complex of about 20 units, this was an end unit in a cluster of 3. The views are spectacular but it gets VERY hot in the afternoon on the terraces and in the unit, you have to use AC by afternoon. But as it faces West the sunsets are gorgeous! The unit is very large and well stocked. It was once very nicely done but is in need of maintenance, doors and dishwasher didn’t work, missing screens, painting needing done, major scale build up in showers etc. We also had no internet for the first 4 days of a 7 day stay. The property management company Special Places did arrange to get the internet back on, finally. The pool at the complex, above the unit with its infinity edge was also beautiful. The road into Playa Potrero is also very poor, you have to drive through two creeks and a lot of potholes. Fun…..but not easy or comfortable to get in or out of. There are enough restaurants and stores in the area, Playa Potrero and Playa Flamingo, though you do not need to go this road too much. Overall a good but not great stay….. for the price.
