Description from owner


This incredible ocean view Villa is only 100 feet from the Pacific Ocean. You can enjoy relaxing strolls on the sandy beach, swim in the family-friendly ocean bay, and return for a fresh-water dip in the privacy of your own pool. In the evening enjoy the unforgettable Costa Rican sunsets from the 2nd floor furnished balcony, or the 3rd floor shaded belvedere.

If you want excitement, a huge selection of activities are readily available: scuba diving, snorkelling, turtle expeditions, sport fishing, canopy tours, sunset name just a few. Costa Rica is famous for its diverse wildlife population. Monkey sightings are common, occasionally even from the pool at Casa Cerca del Mar!

If you are more inclined to relax, Casa Cerca del Mar offers a cool and comfortable home away from home, a place to enjoy the peace and serenity of a quiet setting and just sit and listen to the rhythm of the ocean waves!

The rental includes twice weekly maid service and daily pool and grounds maintenance. Enjoy the two sea-kayaks-- paddle out to explore the nearby islands, or fish for Wahoo, Rooster Fish, or Snapper in the lush fishing grounds of Potrero Bay. The ocean in front of the house is yours to enjoy! And you will find the high-speed wireless internet with Wi-Fi very helpful when trying to stay in touch with work (ugh!) or family and friends.

The property manager "Saioa" will be there to greet you and introduce you to the house. And she will gladly help with all your arrangements: From Liberia Airport pick-up to Zip-Lining, Snorkeling, and any number of spectacular Nature and Wildlife Tours.

The neighborhood is safe and quiet, but for absolute security the house is furnished with two alarm systems (indoor and outdoor), and a night time guard service. There is also an easy-to-use combination safe and lock up closet to secure your passports and valuables. The house is easy walking distance from grocery stores, fun restaurants, and night spots. Enjoy the swim-up bar at the Bahia Del Sol just a few minutes walk south on the beach, or stay up late dancing on "Ladies Night Wednesdays" at the Las Brisas nightclub and restaurant, just a few minutes walk north. Don't miss breakfast at The Shack or live music at Coconuts. Speaking of coconuts, our grounds keeper, Benito, will be happy to fetch fresh coconut water for you from the local palms-- watching him open them deftly with his machete is an experience you won't forget! And if you like, we can arrange a traditional Costa Rican chef for your party-- he will shop, cook, serve, and clean-up for as little as $10/plate while you enjoy the spectacular sunsets from the 2nd or 3rd floor verandas.

If you want a truly unique experience, there are public buses that stop just a block away and will take you to the city of Liberia or to the quaint town of

Santa Cruz. Or you can enjoy our private but affordable shuttle service to the surf-towns of Brasilito (with its famous white beach "Playa Conchal,") or to Tamarindo where the waves and partying never end!! If you prefer, one of the local rental car agencies will be more than happy to deliver a rental car to your door. But there is so much fun to be had on foot that you might find you prefer to simply walk the beach to Flamingo, stopping along the way for drinks and snacks at some of the many beachfront restaurants.

In short, CASA CERCA DEL MAR is the perfect place to stay in the land of PURA VIDA!
