Casa Encantada A beautiful property with breath taking views!

A million dollar view in Costa Rica! Villa Encantada is perched on a bluff with a salt-water infinity pool that has a panoramic view of the Pacific Ocean, forest, and hills. It's truly a one-million-dollar view. Our family stayed at this wonderful property the third week in March. While this is the end of Costa Rica's dry season we still found the view breathtaking though less lush than the picture. It's located in the private Pacific Heights neighborhood overlooking the beautiful town of Potrero. It's managed by Special Places of Costa Rica, which has detailed and dedicated staff. The property is meticulously maintained by Verny, who also handles security. The concierge, Juan Diego setup all of our day trips. Carlos managed our stay and helped with all of the little details like a late check-in, questions and helping when our rental car broke down in the driveway. Carlos is awesome! Finally, Marisol and her staff keep the place very clean. Playa Potrero is the perfect getaway from all the hustle and bustle of Tamarindo. Potrero is nestled next to Playa Flamingo in a quiet fishing village that is tranquil, serene, and very safe. It offers a great beach, restaurants, bars, and a market. When we come back to Costa Rica we'll stay here again! Thanks for a wonderful experience.

Amazing property, This was the perfect property for our family with two teenagers over spring break. The salt water infinity pool was very refreshing and had fantastic views overlooking two bays and the Pacific Ocean. Very secluded and private, but very safe as well. A perfect escape to relax and unwind from work/school for a week. Great experience, and very close to several different beaches, and plenty of great restaurants close by.

Family vacation, Villa Encantada was the perfect home for our family location. The home was well stocked with kitchen and beach supplies. The views and sunsets are beautiful. We loved the outside space for relaxing and the pool was lovely! The location is perfect to access a number of local beaches. We would definitely stay here again!
