The poolside gardens are much more grown in than shown here but love this shot.New six seater sectional under the shelter of the rancho. As seen here from inside the kitchen.

The space

Casa Acacia offers what a condo can't - complete privacy. The property is completely walled in by 9ft walls - and no buildings look in to it. When you enter the area you notice the inviting pool area with outdoor and covered lounge (rancho). There are many spots to relax - fall in to the shade-filled hammock or sit in a second lounge area with a book. The sun loungers can be moved to either take in the sun or have some time out in the shade. Many properties offer sun or shade only but Casa Acacia was designed around true outdoor living and offers both!

Renovations took place Feb/March 2016. The Master has an ensuite and there is a second bedroom and a second bathroom. The third bedroom is a casita/pool house/guest house. All bedrooms are air conditioned and also have fans.

It's perfect for entertaining but if you don't feel like cooking there are seven restaurants within walking distance - and we mean under five mins walking distance.

There's also a market to buy food and essentials - including alcohol. And the beach (Playa Potrero) is also walking distance - less than a block away.

Guest access

You will enjoy full and private access to Casa Acacia. 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms plus a casita (guest room) that offers an indoor lounge/extra bedroom. The beds in the casita are high end futons and measure 7 feet long. Casa Acacia sleeps 6 comfortably - ask us if you can have up to 8 people, we may make an exception for larger families.

If you are unable to unplug while you are there - Casa Acacia offers the highest speed internet available.

Interaction with guests

If you need anything during your stay at Casa Acacia the property managers will be available to you. In addition there is a concierge service where you can arrange unique and customized Costa Rican experiences. You can also book in-home massages and yoga sessions. Let me know if you would like to use this service.

Other things to note

There is live music available at the restaurants in the area. It can be heard while sitting poolside (if you don't decide to go and see it for yourself). And is not noticeable once inside the bedrooms, with the exception of the casita - where it can still be heard on occasion. I've enjoyed sitting by the pool listening to local bands who play exceptionally well. It's not played at a concert level and can be quite nice if you decide to stay in - but want to enjoy the ambiance of the area.

We had a great stay at Casa Acacia! We loved the private pool and the location couldn't be beat -- a short walk to the beach and a number of local restaurants. Playa Potrero was beautiful and uncrowded, the perfect place to catch the sunset each evening. It was also a short drive to Tamarindo, Playa Grande, and other great spots for surfing, snorkeling, and beachcombing. We had to pick up keys for the house at a local property management office when we arrived, but it was only a five minute drive from the house and they were able to accommodate our very late arrival time (11pm). We had a great stay and hope to visit Costa Rica again soon. Thanks for sharing your home with us Fiona!

Fiona's place is in a residential neighbourhood but there is still a lot going on. Down the street is the Costa Rica Sailing Centre which has a pool, restaurant and beach. There is always something going on there and you can find other kids there. There are lots of great restaurants in the area too. The house itself was great for our family of four. Our teenage slept in the casita and our younger one took the second bedroom in the house. Bedrooms and the casita have A/C which we used at night. The kids loved the outdoor space and pool. We did lots of star gazing at night. A relaxing vacation all around.

Fiona obviously cares a great deal about her home and her guests. She is very responsive and very quick to answer any question or take care of anything you need. The house was very nice, very clean, and the kitchen was well stocked. We loved the private pool. The WiFi was fast enough to stream movies which was a pleasant surprise. The one day it rained, that's exactly what we did in the glassed in seperate living room, which was very cool. The restaurants in town are top notch. Casa Celeste, literally right out the back door was our favorite. It was the perfect place to us. Loved it. Highly recommended.

We had a wonderful time at Fiona's place in Playa Potrero. The location was amazing. A block from the beach and a variety of lovely restaurants. It was a great escape from the city. The beach is beautiful, the pool was a perfect way to spend the afternoon with our toddler, and the house was clean and comfortable. We will definitely be back:)
