Holiday Rental House
Live like you are on the Blue Lagoon in this one of a kind rustic beach home! This two story bungalow is located on Playa La Penca, a remote 800 meter long white sand beach that feels like you are on your own private beach adjacent to the larger and more well known Playa Potrero. Only 5 houses and a small beach bar (great for cocktails!) sit on this magical beach, which has predominantly local beachgoers. The bungalow features an upstairs master bedroom with half bath and downstairs has a day bed with additional rollaway bed for 2 children or adults, full bath with ocean view rain head shower, a gas range kitchen including large cooking island facing the ocean, as well as open terraces and outdoor shower in the back garden!

Enjoy stunning 360 views of ocean and mangrove from sunrise to sunset all from your porch! This is one of the only properties of its kind in the entire country. You will sleep with the sound of the waves crashing and wake up to see nothing but blue skies and ocean right in front of you. Please make sure you are ok with cats and dogs when booking this property! Pets live on the property and love to meet new guests. Three very sweet and friendly dogs and 3 very cute kittens live with me at the main house. They are never tied up or locked up so they mostly run around the beach all day playing and take naps at the main house. They love meeting new people and will come by the bungalow to say hi every now and then, especially the curious kitties! There is limited WiFi, so you will be able to send and receive emails and use social media, but streaming videos might get a bit tricky. There is stronger signal at the main house which you are welcome to get close to download your favorite shows and watch them later in the bungalow. There is a single person kayak and a paddle board on the property for your use. There is also a kayak rental within walking distance if you need more than one kayak or want a two person kayak. More

Interaction with guests
I live in the main house across the garden from the bungalow. There are about 60 meters of palm trees separating the two houses creating a private space for guests. I love interacting and available during your stay for any questions or recommendations you may need! A husband and wife duo, Javier and Giselle, live on the property behind the main house and area here to make your stay as comfortable as possible. They provide daily cleaning included with your rental and can help with anything you might need during your stay. Laundry is available on site and is included in your rental. Just leave any clothes you want washed in the hamper provided. Please note we will change your towels and sheets every fourth day so please hang on to those.

About the neighbourhood
The town of Potrero is walking distance where you can find small grocery stores and a couple of local restaurants. A 5 minute drive away is Surfside, which hosts many international restaurants and bars featuring live music several nights a week. Nearby beaches include: Las Catalinas 10 min drive, Flamingo 10 minute drive, Tamarindo 30 minute drive, Playa Grande 30 min drive and Avellanas 45 minute drive.
Getting around
The house is located on the beachfront on the sand as so is the parking area, please make sure to rent a 4x4 as you do have to drive (and park) on sand during your stay. If you choose not to rent a car then you will have to book a shuttle or private car to Playa Penca. Once you are here you have the option of walking into town where there are a couple of grocery and liquor stores, and a few local restaurants and cafes. The area known as Surfside Potrero is walkable by the beach and takes about 30 minutes. There are also bikes and golf carts in town to rent, which would easily allow you to move around.
