Listen to parakeets, toucans, and howler monkeys while relaxing on your private balcony overlooking the lush garden. Take a refreshing swim in the gorgeous pool next to your cool "rancho" with a wet bar. Pluck bananas, papayas, and almonds. Have dinner and go dancing at the nearby restaurants. Live your dream here in Costa Rica! Pura Vida!

The space
El Delfin is pure luxury for those who want the perks of a boutique hotel experience in a tropical paradise - plus, the convenience of a full home with kitchen and privacy. We love it here, and we know you will too!

The home is modern, beautiful and fantastically accessible to a thriving beach community with restaurants, bars, spas, local sailing center, massage on the beach, yoga classes, and more. The garden is a miniature tropical jungle in which you can relax and disconnect from the pressures of daily life.

We have a caretaker who lives on the property and security. A concierge is available to arrange all your excursions and adventures in Costa Rica.

DETAILS:
Your private villa is approx 1600 sq ft on two floors with two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Each bedroom offers a private patio/sundeck where you can relax on the enticing day beds. The master bedroom provides floor-to-ceiling 14-foot high double-sliding glass doors. Wake up to an incredible tropical view with the sounds of the ocean, howler monkeys, and green parrots.

Guest access
You have the luxurious El Delfin home/villa.

Plus, Stef Surf's pool, jacuzzi tub (unheated), rancho, gardens, and parking. Enjoy!

If you need anything else, please just let us know. We can arrange more.

Concierge, private chef, tours, daily housekeeping, fresh fish delivery, massage, babysitting, catering, airport shuttle service, car rental, etc.

Other things to note
You are 2 minutes (walking distance) from Potrero Beach/Playa Potrero. It is an ideal place for children as it usually is quite calm. Playa Potrero is an environmentally protected turtle nesting site. The beach is bordered by dry lowland, and mangrove forests. Stef Surf is a tropical oasis close to the beach and more.

Rainy season is very rainy and a fantastic adventure beneath the tropical canopy. It is amazing to experience this phenomenon!

Summer is hot, so we encourage you to enjoy the air conditioner and pull the curtains during the mid-day sun. The pool is ALWAYS refreshing year round.

We have a thriving community here with nearby restaurants, bars, and dancing. We have a very detailed home manual that you can use to experience the most of our area during your stay. Many people are flocking to this amazing paradise, so new homes are being built in the neighborhood.

Welcome to Playa Potrero's Surf Side area. This neighborhood is a thriving local beach community of Ticos and world-citizens who live here to experience Costa Rica's exotic nature and culture. Here you can meet new friends with similar interests!

Surf Side has an amazing array of restaurants and bars all within a short walking distance. People are friendly and helpful, so it feels safe and inviting to walk the beach to the local attractions in the evenings. We have plenty of entertainment options here without an overly touristy "party" life.

Our home is El Delfin in Stef Surf. Families and friends choose our El Delfin Villa because it is gorgeous and Stef Surf's tropical garden is one-of-a-kind. We are also close to a variety of beautiful beaches with surfing, diving, sailing, and more!

Playa Potrero is a vibrant little town where everything is at your fingertips. The neighborhood includes many excellent restaurants and bars. There is a nearby grocery store (supermercado) and a fruit stand. The local sailing center and craft beer brewery are within walking distance. Additionally, we have a small commercial center complete with a more upscale grocery store, dentist, and hairstyling salon. All of these destinations are within a short walking distance.

Playa Potrero/Potrero Beach features a beautiful gray sand beach, perfect for lounging, sunbathing, and swimming. There are additional beaches with waves, snorkeling, and surfing nearby. You will love discovering each one's unique beauty.

However, if you desire a little more adventure than just a day at the beach, there are many tourist attractions within a thirty-minute drive.

Nearby activities include canopy tours (zip lines), hiking, horseback riding, waterfalls, sports fishing, casino gaming, and tours of the beautiful Rincon de la Vieja and Palo Verde National Park - to name a few of the fantastic attractions nearby. (Honestly, there are too many to list here!)

Hi! I'm JoEllen. As a family, we travel a LOT. We work online and can be anywhere in the world, so as a family we travel as much as possible. We love to visit nature areas, especially beaches and mountains. We are active and like to participate in lots of different sports and recreation. We sail, dive, snorkel, surf, boogie board, ski, ice skate, bicycle and walk. We have young children so we prefer relaxed places with a feel like home where we can have a kitchen and food whenever we like. We prefer homes where we can prepare our own food and relax. Hotels are never that exciting for us and restaurants require too much time & effort... We love to have access to a home environment as it often includes games, toys, spices for cooking, bikes, and more personal touches. We love to be near nature and always appreciate toys to play with, such as bicycles, play park (swings), kayaks, fishing rods, badminton, etc. Maps of local excursions with recommendations are super helpful. When traveling, we love to rent our home to fellow travelers. Recently, we purchased a home in Costa Rica, which is also a very popular rental, as it is luxurious and run in a "boutique hotel" style. We are proud to be part of this fun adventure now. We have a summer house of our own on the Swedish coast and rent it occasionally. Thus, we try to leave the places we visit clean and very easy for the next person's stay. We understand how important and wonderful this is for the owner. Thank you for considering us in your home. We look forward to meeting you soon!
