Dr. Igor Svoboda - retired Veterinarian and Tom Graydon - retired Criminologist & Realtor - have one thing in common: An intense LOVE of nature and all of God's creatures - especially things tropical!

We have always been surrounded by pets and plants, mountains and water, so it was only natural for us to gravitate to this beautiful little corner of Paradise...

Tom Graydon purchased this villa in 1989

After travelling extensively through many countries of the world, we came to Costa Rica for the first time 30 years ago and instantly fell in love with the nature, people, flora and fauna of this gentle country. 20 years ago (1989) we purchased a very large natural preserve nestleld above the Pacific ocean in a very sleepy, quiet community of Flamingo Beach in the Pacific North-Western province of Guanacaste. We never looked back - never regretted this decision. In fact, we started by building our first house. Then a guest house, followed by a pool. Before we knew it, we had designed and built a unique complex of beautiful Villas with 2 large pools - all built with the highest regard for their tropical surroundings and natureal setting. From every window or terace, one can appreciate the magic of Nature. It has been very rewarding personally for us to create this unique little corner of Paradise!

Fantastic Trip

My Mom, Sister and I were beyond fortunate to stay at Tom and Igor's remarkable property and our trip could not have been more perfect. Villas Casa Loma was hands down one of the best places we have stayed and believe me I have rented many properties thru VRBO and I do not hand out 5 star reviews lightly. From the moment we set foot on the grounds we knew we had found our home away from home. This was before we even entered our private villa. The villa itself was beautiful and comfortable and the views were spectacular from every door and every window. Views of the lush landscapes of the grounds, to the jungle behind and below the villa, and the ocean, marina and bay to the west. We lived on our villa's remarkable covered terrace! I have never seen more diverse flora and fauna anywhere than on their property. Lovely pathways link all the villas and pools together, yet they are all well placed to give each villa nice privacy and views. The most memorable gifts this property offered had to have been the sounds of the jungle each morning and evening. The birds, howler monkeys and tree frogs make the greatest music! Stunning to see and even more amazing to hear. The location was exceptional, just far enough away from the main part of town but not so far that you could not get anywhere you needed to go in a matter of minutes. We rented a car which made life so easy during our stay as well as enjoyed some greats tours with EcoTrans. Tom was an absolute pleasure to work with before and during our stay and hands down one of the nicest people we have ever met. You can tell he and Igor have put their heart and souls into their property and it shows everywhere. His entire staff were wonderful especially Willy who always greeted us each day with a big smile and kept the pools sparkling. We miss our little feline friend Cali. August is an incredible time to visit Costa Rica, the afternoon storms were breathtaking. Some of the most amazing thunder and lightening shows we have ever witnessed. Wow, did they generate some stunning sunsets! This was an incredible adventure and a place we will never forget. We cannot thank you enough for such a magical stay.

Owner's Response: PURA VIDA ! Thanks, Dawn, for your very kind words about our little corner of Paradise. It is always a pleasure to have interesting and interested guests here - and you all were certainly no exception ! Things have changed a little bit here since August... The gravel road (complete with potholes !) has been paved at last, making it a real pleasure to drive to neighbouring settlements and beaches such as Potrero and Las Catalinas... Being a bit away from the more built-up areas still offers great rewards (peace and quiet) with the convenience of easy access to the wonderful beaches of the area... There is so much to see and do here! The old settlement of Nicoya, with examples of early Spanish Colonial architecture, for example, is within an easy drive or our compound. The market town of Santa Cruz is even closer...A unique coffee growing area can be found just south of Nicoya, along with some of the best natural tropical honey to be found anywhere... Just a couple of the many fascinating things to do and see in the area... EcoTrans is still our favorite choice for planning spectacular tours and we are really happy to have them located so close to us in Flamingo Beach... As you have discovered, our property is designed to make the most of the views while catching the gentle breezes and allowing excellent privacy and security. Nature is always only a glance away ! At the moment birds are busily nesting in the palms around the upper swimming pool and our resident parrot is singing and talking - and even laughing - to the amusement of our guests here... We hope that you will be able to come back again and enjoy more of the sights, sounds and natural beauty we have to offer ! Just think " COSTA RICA: NO ARTIFICIAL INGREDIENTS ! " ... Willy, Seylin and Edith join in sending you warmest best wishes for a very HAPPY NEW YEAR 2014. We look forward to seeing you again soon here in our little corner of Paradise ! PURA VIDA ! Tom and Igor

It is with great pleasure that we write this review. We are a family of 5 and stayed at this beautiful place during our first ever trip to Costa Rica. This place is the Garden of Eden! The villas are clean and spacious with stunning views of the Ocean and mountains. The location is a perfect place to base your Costa Rica holiday. On the property are two beautiful pools which are a great way to end an active day exploring the stunning countryside. The hosts Igor and Tom are delightful gentlemen who were extremely helpful from the time we made the reservations right to check out. Getting to know them was a highlight of the trip. There is so much of Costa Rica we still need to explore so we look forward to our next visit! We give Villas Casa Loma our highest recommendation. This place is truly paradise!

Owner's Response: It was a great pleasure to have you all staying with us here in our little corner of Paradise ! We thoroughly enjoyed you all and the fact that you were able to squeeze so much enjoyment from your visit, too. As you were able to see, the beaches here all have their own special "character", which makes it a really exciting experience to visit and compare them. So glad, too, that you were able to experience some of the excellent local restaurants - as well as to sample a variety of unique and special tours available here. (Next time we hope that you will also see some crocodiles, along witht he other wildlife that you witnessed.) We most certainly look forward to seeing you all again one day soon ... and don't forget to bring your senses of adventure and humour with you once more ! As you have discovered, it really pays off ! Pura Vida ! Tom and Igor

My husband I and stayed at Villas Casa Loma for the month of February 2013 and were so delighted with our hosts ,surroundings and fellow guests that we reserved our villa for Feb.2014.The gardens are well maintained as are the pool and the villas. The VRBO Listing is totally accurate in it's description but cannot recreate the wonderful ambiance and sense of relaxation that washes over you as soon as you arrive.Igor and Tom are wonderful hosts who are eager to insure that you enjoy your stay.They have lived in Costa Rica for many,many years and can give you lots of suggestions that will enhance your holiday and help you enjoy the beauty and adventure of Costa Rica.The view from our Villa was stupendous with incredible sunsets every evening .Our very spacious terrace let us enjoy a glass of wine and Costa Rican splendour at the same time.We can hardly bear the wait until February!!

All I can say is: PURA VIDA !
We go here every year for peace and quiet, to see Tom and Igor - along with other long-term visitors that we have met at VILLAS CASA LOMA - are now our best friends. We have been going here for eleven years now. every year we stay longer and longer this year was Dec. 31 to March 18th we wished we stayed longer. we also meet other friends here too who also come back every year. we always have a great time here ,the views here are fantastic from the mountains to the ocean. we have binoculars to see the whales playing in the ocean,the birds in the trees, and also the howler monkeys in the trees were awesome, too. Tom and Igor will do anything to help you the best they can,they will call restaurants for reservations car rentals they will tell you the best places to eat, beaches galore , tours ,etc. You name it they will help you do anything you wish to do. The two pools are huge and beautiful ,lots of greenery, ,palm trees, banana trees flowers.they have different size villas, for one or many. Just ask Tom and Igor they will accommodate you. The area is great for shopping, the grocery store Massaia has everything you would need two minutes by car or you can drive to Tamarido - twenty minutes - a great store there called AM Automercado, has everything from around the world.and you can also surf here or sit at a nice restaurant on the beach and watch.there is so much to do here or just read a book by the pools.we can't wait till next year! Maybe we will stay three months if we can. Thank you Tom and Igor for a fun and wonderful time in your own piece of paradise. John and Keith .

Playa Flamingo Rest and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 23, 2013
  • Stayed: Jan 2013
My wife and I recently spent a few days at Casa Loma in Playa Flamingo. Having never been to Costa Rica we conducted a lot of research trying to find a villa where we would find peace and rest with plenty of sunshine after a month of a nasty Winter. We have rented villas for over twenty five years in several countries and have learned to know what we like. First we want a first rate location close by the main reasons for being in the place to begin with. If we are in the South of France we want to be near the museums and the beach. In Costa Rica we wanted a good beach nearby, we got that. Costa Rica beaches can be wild, brown sand beaches with rip tides not what we were looking for at all so our research put a calm white sand beach near the top of the list. Casa Loma has that just a few minutes away.

We wanted a pool so we wouldn't be forced to leave the property every time we wanted to take a dip. Casa Loma has to big beautiful pools from which to choose. We were looking for quiet in the villa where we could be together and sun, read, cook, eat and sleep without road noise and bright lights. We got all of that in Casa Loma. Maybe the most important thing we were looking for was a real villa experience not just some 2 bedroom condo built in the big building boom of the past decade. Our perspective was if we wanted Florida we would go to Florida we were looking for the kinds of villas we rent on the French Riviera but with a Central American sensibility. We got that at Casa Loma. The view from the acreage looks very similar to many we have seen from places like Nice or Villefranche looking over to Cap Ferat.

The owners of Villa Loma live on the property and are very nice people and will help you out with anything you might need to deal with while there. We will very likely revisit in the future which is our best endorsement.

Owner's Response: Hola Michael and Virginia !
Kind thanks for your glowing endorsement of our property! We always appreciate it when our guests recognize the results of our efforts to create a warm and inviting environment.

We are indeed fortunate to be so well situated in Costa Rica's Gold Coast. The views, the weather, the facilities of the area leave little more to be desired. A short drive away are mountains, wet and dry forest preserves, wilderness parks, volcanos, lakes and rivers as well as endless possibilities for adventure excursions or laid back hammock and beach relaxation.
There is so much to see and do here in the area. Nature is just a glance away. The beaches each have their own special and distinct "character"... As we say, do it all - or nothing at all ! The choices are seemingly endless.

As you discovered, VILLAS CASA LOMA is the product of many months and years of planning, designing and developing. Our philosophy continues to be to offer our guests a quiet, comfortable and spacious place suitable for active families as well as for those who prefer quiet contemplation and reflection.

Once again we thank you for your kind words and observations.
We sincerely look forward to the opportunity of hosting you both again one day soon.
Be well and travel safely !
PURA VIDA.
Tom and Igor
