As most travelers know, booking a vacation is one of the most joyous events one can experience… with anticipation growing each and every time you mark a day closer on your calendar. My experience however was not what you would call the normal run of the mill. I decided to embrace my inner spontaneity - I purchased my plane ticket on a Tuesday and flew out the following Thursday for a 4 day retreat with other friends.
With some luck, we were able to secure Villa Oasis, which lives up to its’ name in glorious fashion. Secluded within the mountains of Potrero, the Villa Oasis beholds some of the most breathtaking views. From majestic foothills to the Pacific Ocean, both can be seen from the exquisite wraparound veranda, and stunning infinity pool. Moving inside, this Villa exhibits its grace with luxurious furnishings, oversized bedrooms ( having their own private bathrooms), and large glass paneled windows allowing you to enjoy the extraordinary views from practically every room in the house.
Now, my primary focus of this trip was to rest, relax, and recharge from the everyday stresses we are so inclined to deal with. With the assistance from the wonderful caretakers Miguel and Maria, I was able to fully enjoy each and every day to the fullest, whether it was spent at the local beaches (Playa Potrero or Playa Flamingo), or indulging in some of the best Costa Rican cuisine… I personally recommend Coco Loco’s or The Beach House as both possess diverse menus and the waterfront dining experience.
What else can I say other than this trip had exceeded my wildest dreams and expectations. Even if it’s for only a few days, I cannot wait until I can call this beautiful residence in paradise, my home again and again !
