The Palms is quite simply unmatched. Its gardens are adorned with an array of exotic plants, beautiful tropical flowers and stately Royal palms. These gardens attract butterflies and dozens of bird species, just as nature intended. The Palms was built to the highest standards. Natural Costa Rican materials have been combined with old world craftsmanship to create a stunning oasis on the coveted Pacific Coast of Costa Rica. Our custom Interior is finished using local hardwood and stone throughout. We wanted a Costa Rican home fashioned with local materials. It's first class all the way.....Sub-zero, Bosch and other fabulous appliances.

On the ocean's edge, you will find this 2300 square foot private residence and luxurious beachfront sanctuary. The property is located near the end of a secluded cove, is gated and has 24-hr security. A beautiful vanishing edge pool overlooks the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean and the soft, white sand of Playa Flamingo, providing the ultimate location

This is undoubtedly the best location on the beach in Gaunacaste. Come and enjoy our wonderful home, listen to the birds, lounge on either of the 2 large decks over-looking the pool and ocean or just relax inside the air conditioned luxury. There are many gourmet restaurants in the area. You may also wish to try your hand at cooking in the gourmet kitchen.

After either a busy or relaxing day enjoying the endless pool and spectacular sunsets.

...fall asleep to the sound of the surf.

About Elyne Johnson

I live in Vancouver, B.C., Canada. I am not yet retired but, can get away for extended vacations. I love to be in a warm place in 'winter', away from all that rain! I enjoy reading and relaxing at The Palms on Flamingo Beach. It is the ideal situation for me to just sit back and get away from all the daily 'business' of life.

Elyne Johnson purchased this villa in 2000

Why Elyne Johnson chose Playa Flamingo

I had always dreamed of a vacation home on the beach. After researching all the potential places in the world, I chose Costa Rica. I traveled there and went from Coast to Coast .....finallly ending my search on the white sands of Flamingo Beach. The particular unit I purchased was previously owned by a lovely couple from England. It was the first ever to sell in the complex! It is a corner unit and I feel is on the best location of any in the entire place.I call it the Madiera (wood in Spanish) House. It has all native and natural products from flooring to cabinetry. I just love the authenticity of the finishings.

What makes this villa unique

This unit has two Master Bedroom Suites, both with 'King-Size' beds. The beach-side Master suite has a private Jacuzzi Tub in the Bathroom with views right out to the beach. the unit also has lots of storage and hanging space for clothes and luggage plus, a great little built-in desk for the computer. There's lots of new beach equipment onsite. Examples are: a long board for surfing, 2 stand-up paddle boards, 4 boogie-boards, various sized masks and fins for snorkeling and some sand 'toys'.

My best vacation to date!!!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time in Costa Rica. First of all, Jorge the property manager did a great job making us feel at home. He was very cordial and very helpful to us. The cleaning staff also did a wonderful job, exceeded our expectation. The condo was first rate, and I like the owner Elyne's personal touches throughout the condo. We travelled with another family who also rented another unit at the Palms. Their unit was not as nice and they did not get the same service we did. We stayed 8 days in Costa Rica with our two children. We took a number of excursions and every time we looked forward to getting back to the condo whether relaxing at the beach/pool or just hang out at the property. Elyne, thank you for the amazing condo that allowed us to better enjoy our vacation. We travel internationally quite a bit and this year's vacation will rank up there among the best.

Great place for a quiet beach vacation!

  • 5 of 5
This is a beautiful resort and Palms #7 is just as described on the website. We had a wonderful time. Elyne (the owner), her manager (Jorge), and all of the staff at the Palms did everything they could to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. It is a quiet, off-the-beaten-path sort of place but there are nice restaurants nearby and there are plenty of tours that are available if you get bored with just relaxing. It was our first trip and we'll definitely be back.

Amazing.

  • 5 of 5
Wow, what a place. My wife and three teenage daughters (ages 18, 16 and 13) had the pleasure of staying in Villa 7 at the Palms during Spring Break this year. It was one of best vacations we have taken as a family. First the Villa. It really is like a second home with all of the amenities that you need. All high end appliances, and from top to bottom, it was very easy to see that Villa 7 was very well maintained. The location of Villa 7 was great. Literally, it is steps away from the infinity edge pool and a few more steps from the beach. The complex has a variety of SUP boards, a surf board, boogie boards and a bunch of other beach items which are available to use at no cost. All of the staff who maintained the complex were very nice and eager to please. Playa Flamingo and the complex itself is very safe, and is the perfect place to stay for adults by themselves or families. Definitley rent a car and drive from Liberia. Very easy and no hassle. The Costa Rican people are easily the nicest people we have met during our travels.
We stayed for a week and each day did some type of excursion in the morning. One morning it was surf lessons at Pointe Break surfing school, another ATV tour, another zip lines and the final was a full day sailboat tour. All easily accessible from the Palms. We cooked in a few nights as there were two easily located grocery stores that had everything we needed. The other nights we walked down the beach about a 100 yards to a restaurant named Coco Loco and dined right on the beach.
If you are looking for beautiful lodgings on an uncrowded beach in a safe country, with activities available so you can be as laid back or active as you want, then this place is for you.
A special shout out needs to go to the owner Elyne. She was very responsive and organized which made the renting very easy. Elyne also had her property manager secure a rental car for us so all we had to do was get off plane, take shuttle to rental agency and then drive 55 minutes to the Villa. No muss, no fuss.

Just Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time using leasing a vacation rental as we are/were a resorts family but following our trip to the Palms I am certain we will be back. The owner Elyne is perfect as the listing is exactly correct but the pictures and glowing comments cannot do this wonderful home and development justice. First comments on Elyne’s assistance; as an owner she really knows the local area and is very generous with her time aiding you in every respect with email response times that were very impressive. This providing tremendous comfort as we traveled 3,000 miles to visit her home. Elyne's local manger Jorge is great as he aids you in making reservations and suggesting day trips and activities (after the first day our daughter burned herself, I called Jorge to find a local drug store and before I could say anything he stopped by a drug store and delivered a medicated cream, great service, thanks Jorge). As to her home, well the pictures do give you an overview to this home, but to be clear the location is outstanding on a peaceful white sand beach right out of the movies. The home is spacious with both bedrooms being on the second floor, each floor has 2 large patio/decks with views of the pool and ocean and containing comfortable lounges and chairs to relax and enjoy the awesome sunsets! Everything was perfectly maintained and very high end within the home. There was an issue with the dishwasher during our first two days and Elyne arranged for maid service to clean and mange the dishes until the repair parts arrived and when the repair company came to the Villa Jorge was there and we were never inconvenienced in any way. The Villa is within a community of homes wherein there is an expert staff making for an absolutely five star resort with food and drinks available by the pool or delivered to your Villa and with their expert Chef Roy you could have dinner delivered or set on the beach to dine at sunset. The staff were extremely well trained and focused on making every moment you were on their grounds or using the pool feel as if you were their honored guest. To summarize, Elyne is the best owner, the location is outstanding as the beach has the best combination of white sands wonderful waves and privacy. The home is top notch with every need covered all done in a very elegant manner. The Palms community was every bit of a five star resort on the beach. Just outstanding in every way. Thanks Elyne for the opportunity to enjoy your wonderful home!

Paradise in Playa Flamingo

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent 5 days at the property for our anniversary and I cannot say how perfect the unit, grounds and surrounding area is. The interior of the unit is perfectly designed and has a nice "home" feel. Some of the highlights include the large spacious kitchen, the beautiful bedrooms, sizeable showers and bathrooms and the spectacular views of Playa Flamingo. Everything was perfectly maintained and very high end. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to get out of the resort style of traveling while still having the high end amenities. The staff is very kind and generous at the Palms and everyone went out of their way to make us welcome. The property itself is immaculate. The pool and beach area is the stuff you see on postcards. Elyne was extremely easy to deal with and sent us a variety of helpful information. I cannot recommend this place enough – book and you will not be disappointed!

Our favorite place, and we've been around

Our favorite place, and we've been around
  • 5 of 5
This is our 5th visit to Costa Rica, and we've stayed in at least 10 different places. Although we have been to Flamingo Beach before, and loved it, we had not stayed here. What a treat! Highlights: incredible views (which is not the case for all the units there), right on a beautiful beach, stand-up paddle boards to use whenever you want, infinity edge pool, super nice staff, immaculate grounds, modern furnishings and appliances, walking distance to restaurants, quiet. Of all the places where we have stayed, this is one where we will be coming back for sure, maybe with the kids!
The owner gave us all the info we needed, and even sent us a hand written thank you after. I'd recommend this place for sure.
