Villa Cielo Mar, Potrero
4-BD Hacienda-Style Luxury with Sweeping Views

Designed in the style of an old Mexican hacienda, Villa Cielo Mar in Potrero is a gorgeous 4-bedroom, 4.5-bath home in the hills. Located in a mountainside area known as Pacific Heights, the home has stellar views of Potrero Bay and Brasilito Bay.

The impressive foyer has an indoor waterfall, an iron chandelier and a spiral staircase. Furniture is wooden and rustic, with heavy wooden frames on bathroom mirrors, and the parallel logs embedded in the ceiling mimic the style of a Mexican mansion.

Old World touches abound, offset by modern features like flatscreen TVs and central air conditioning. A large terrace with an infinity pool looks out on the stunning view.

Villa Cielo Mar, Potrero bedrooms and kitchen

Bedrooms have beautiful heavy wooden king or queen beds and large attached bathrooms. Most bedrooms have TVs and open on terraces with a view.

One unique room features a complete bedroom, living room, dining table, bath and private terrace, with a separate entrance through an outdoor stairwell.

The huge kitchen has granite counters and a bar that seats four, plus a dining table for eight.

This home comes with a full-time maid and gardener, and there’s a laundry room and a two-car garage. A 4-wheel-drive vehicle is recommended to reach this secluded home in the hills above Potrero.

Potrero, I would highly recommend renting this house. Very peaceful and secluded. The best part of our stay was that Carlos is in contact. He answered all the questions and helped with recommendations. Also we needed help outside things we needed done not pertaining to the house. He never said that wasn't his job. He made the stay even more enjoyable. He is now a friend. The road to the house is a little frightening at first. But ever trip up the mountain gets better. Bill

This home exceeded all of our expectations during our vacation to Costa Rica. Special Places of Costa Rica was very informative and responsive throughout the process leading up to our stay, offering many services and information about the area, and then met us on site to show us around the home and how to use all of the amenities. The house is spacious, clean, and the views overlooking the ocean are unbeatable! The infinity pool was a dream. It was exactly as advertised. 2 notes: Make sure you have a 4x4 vehicle to access this home- the road leading to it is a very steep, winding dirt road. AND be prepared for the natural wildlife- we had lots of geckos (some inside the home as well, but they are harmless), many birds fluttering around outside, and a scorpion that was able to make its way inside as well. Regardless, I will recommend this home to anyone visiting the Potrero area. Absolute perfection. Thank you for hosting our family!

This place is AMAZING. Would recommend having a 4WD rental car to get up and down the mountain, it’s about. 5-10 minute drive up a steep dirt road. Carlos was able/willing to help us get a taxi but the house isn’t the easiest to reach. That being said, the view and peace and quiet are MORE than worth the effort. Antonia and Sylvia were so great at keeping the property maintained and helping with anything we needed (getting more propane for the grill as one example!). Carlos and special places helped coordinate and set up some awesome adventures for us with minimal effort on our end (ziplining, in-house massages, horseback riding, and a catamaran trip). All were amazing but especially the catamaran trip! The view from the house is as advertised, and likely even more spectacular in the rainy season when the trees have more leaves. I haven’t even talked about the pool! Clean, not overly chlorinated, and sooooo nice during those hot hot afternoons. 10/10!

Spectacular home, views & service. The view is heavenly, we spent the majority of the time on the patios…the perfect way to unwind and find some peace. The private, well kept home is located high up a dirt road…hence the amazing views. The town of Potrero is a great little area to check out local restaurants, beaches, bars and grocery stores. The coast line is breathtaking. The home was well stocked with everything guests would need for kitchen, bath and pool. Washer & dryer were very helpful as well. Antonio, the grounds keeper, was there each morning to clean the pool, water the plants, and was very helpful with questions & concerns (in Spanish). Our stay was a dream vacation and we will absolutely be retuning to stay again asap.
