Beautiful View!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed with two other couples from July 28-August 1, 2013 celebrating 40th birthdays. The owner was responsive and booking was very easy via email. When I asked for advice on scheduling activities, she gave me a concierge service who booked and confirmed everything we wanted (offshore fishing, surfing, sunset catamaran cruise).

Oliver, the on-site property manager, picked us up from the airport and took us to the grocery and liquor store on our way to the house. He checked on us twice each day and even helped us get transportation to a restaurant where we wanted to eat. There is also a maid who cleans and changes bed linens each day - she will also wash your laundry if you request. (The only slight complaint is that she comes at 8:00 a.m). There is a security guard who walks the premises at night.

The view from the porch and infinity pool is unbelievable - the photos are completely accurate. We did not rent a car, but were able to get transportation to all of our activities - two of which were in Tamarindo (approx. 20 minutes from Playa Flamingo). There is a beach restaurant directly next door to the house, which is convenient. There are several other places to eat within walking distance. We also arranged to have a chef come to the house to cook for us one night - he even cooked the fish we caught on our fishing trip!

Wifi works great and there is TV in the main living area and a stereo system for your Ipod. One bedroom is connected to the living area and two are not. Each has its own bathroom. The kitchen and living room are not air-conditioned, but bedrooms are, and we spent 99% of our time on the ocean-view porch anyway!

The beach is right across the beach road from the house and is very secluded. Although we were there in the rainy season, it was beautifully sunny each day except one - but the clouds made for a gorgeous sunset.

We generally stay at resorts for vacations, but this was a great house and we had a great time!

The best views in Flamingo...Period!

  • 4 of 5
I agree with everyone...Casa Piedra has the best views in Flamingo Beach. The house is beautiful, especially the terrace and pool area. The maid was wonderful. You actually only need two or three outfits because all of your clothes are cleaned daily. The caretaker is wonderful. He checked on us daily and made sure all of our questions were answered. He helped us find anything we were looking for from fishing boats to fresh shrimp.
The areas that I would like to suggest for improvement are the mattresses and the outdoor lighting. The mattresses are very uncomfortable. I actually moved the outdoor chair cushions to the bed just to be able to sleep in the bedroom. New mattresses are really needed. The other thing is the outdoor lighting. We brought a flashlight and had to use it outside for eating. The light above the table and most of the outside lights never worked even though we brought it to the attention of the caretaker.
Overall, this is an amazing house with an unforgetable view. It is the kind of place you wish you could own.
Thanks for sharing your property with us.

Lovely Home and Beautiful Beach but......

  • 2 of 5
Home and location are really beautiful and represented honestly on line. It is owner managed and we found communication to be a challenge. We never received acknowledgement of our deposit, our final payment, or our email outlining arrival schedules. Three days before departure we still had not heard from the owner and was worried as we did not know the location of the house, we had no contact number there or how, or if, we would be picked up at the airport. Upon arrival we learned that the previous manager was no longer there. It was a challenge to get keys that worked for each room. The main room was dark because we couldn't work the overhead lights, half the track lights were burned out and there was no bulb in the lamp. One of the blinds in the master bedroom wouldn't work so that fabulous view was partially blocked. Privacy was a factor. The maid arrives at 8:00 am and made sleeping in the room adjoining the kitchen impossible. On our last day at the house, workman came and spent the day sanding the upstairs decks which resulted in no privacy in the pool and the sounds of noisy sanders below on the beautiful outdoor patio. Overall we all agree that the place and the home are wonderful but needs better management on site and in booking.

Owner's Response: I take issue with a couple of your comments. First every time you emailed me, I responded within 30 minutes. after four days of you emailing me rather pointed messages, you recognized that you had given me two emails. The one I was emailing you on, you were not checking. the house staff said they repeatedly showed you how to work the light rio stats. the one light bulb which was out, yup it had just gone out and was replaced immediately. The workers thee was definitely not correct. Won't happen again. indeed very sorry you weren't happier. The staff said they felt they tried EXTREMLY hard to please you but just could not seem to manage. our condolences.

An amazing place

  • 5 of 5
The photos of Casa Piedra do not do the place justice. The view of the beach and surrounding area was amazing, so close to the beach but yet made private with all of the beautiful shrubs, plants and palm trees surrounding the property. The place was kept immaculate by the attentive staff. Alejandro was at the airport to greet the four of us. We went on a canopy tour and catamaran tour, both booked through Dervin at Yellow Fin Charters, which were both exceptional. Our teenage boys loved the place, and swimming in the waves or the infinity pool. The beach is beautiful, surprisingly uncrowded and the sand is clean and fine. The sunsets viewed from either the beach or from the house are unbelievable. Some restaurants were within walking distance, however we chose to stay mostly at the house as it was just too nice to leave. We had lunch at the Soda Y restaurant which was very good and inexpensive. The grocery store was a bit of a walk away but had everything we needed for meals and drinks. We got to see monkeys in the trees at the back road to the grocery store several times at around 2 in the afternoon. We highly recommend this gem of a place and will be back.

Cista Rica Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We just celebrated our wedding anniversary and afterwards my husband and I and our 15 year old daughter and 13 year old son went to Casa Piedra for a vacation. It was absolutely perfect for all four of us! We spent most of our days in the pool, on the beach or on the terrace. It was so relaxing and the view was stunning - we didn't want to leave. The kitchen was updated and most nights we ate at the house eating delicious, freshly caught fish. The house was well laid out and had a charming feel. Alejandro and Alba were very helpful and made sure we had everything we needed. We enjoyed them very much. We hope to go back some day.

Birthday week, April 23rd through May 1st.

  • 5 of 5
Three couples from Southwest Missouri. We had a wonderful time. Gorgeous beach and the best sunsets we had ever seen, and we have seeen alot. Alajandro and Alba took excellant care of usand Roberto kept us safe at night. House is as described and the pool was perfect. We could not have had a better time. We ate at Marie's three times, good food and great margs. Also ate at Don Brasitliitos and a place we never really knew the name of, both places were good and Don Braisilitos has a large pizza and 4 beer for 20 Dollars can't beat that in the states. Plans were to do a canopy tour, volcano and snorkleing trip, but to paraphrase the immortal words of Jimmy, " Warm ocean breezes and Costa Rican rum and cheeses put our amibitions at bay." Will diffinately go back. Wish we were still there.
