4-BD Mountaintop Beauty, Private Pool

Villa Marfil in Potrero’s Pacific Heights is a 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath home with panoramic ocean views and a private infinity pool on a commanding hilltop location. 

A serene and relaxing retreat, this two-story home is spacious, modern and stylish, with comfortable furniture and tasteful accents. Every room offers stunning views, and the indoor and outdoor spaces blend seamlessly. You’ll hear birdsong all day long, and at night there are outstanding views of the stars.

The four bedrooms all feature modern, contemporary design and very comfortable beds with quality white linen. The master bedroom downstairs has a work space, a television, a king-size bed and an ensuite bathroom.  There are two bedrooms upstairs, one with a king bed and the other with a king and a twin. They also have ensuite bathrooms. The fourth bedroom, located by the pool, has a queen bed.

Bathrooms are decorated in a contemporary, tranquil style. All three full baths have showers, and the master bath has two sinks. There is also a sink in the fourth bedroom.

The fully stocked kitchen has a regular coffeemaker and a Nespresso, and in fact you may want to bring pods from home, as they are hard to find in Costa Rica. A rectangular glass dining table seats eight.

The private infinity pool area features covered seating with views of the ocean, hills and an acre of tropical gardens. There’a a gas barbecue, four lounge chairs, two large bean-bag sun loungers and a large umbrella for shade. There is also a balcony on the first floor with two hammocks and a telescope for stargazing.

This 371-square-meter home has two televisions, Wi-Fi, washer and dryer and a safe to store valuables. Pets of any size are welcome, with an extra cleaning fee and a pet deposit.

Small children are also welcome, but parents should be aware of an open staircase with no rail and also an infinity pool with a fairly steep drop on the far side.  

Pacific Heights is accessible by a mountain road that is paved only in places. A 4-wheel-drive vehicle is recommended, especially in the rainy season. 

What’s near Villa Marfil, Potrero

You’ll be about 15 minutes from the nearest beach, and in fact there are three to choose from very close by (Playa Potrero, Playa Penca and Playa Prieta). To the north, it’s a short drive to Las Catalinas, an extraordinary community that looks like a classic Mediterranean village, with car-free streets made of paving stones.

To the south lies the delightful community of Surfside, where a main street just three blocks long is lined with restaurants, bars, shops, a grocery store, a pharmacy and even a sailing center with a beachfront restaurant and pool. 

Beyond Surfside likes Flamingo, where you’ll want to visit the new Marina Flamingo. It’s bristling with yachts and other boats offering fishing, scuba diving, snorkeling and sunset cruises.
