BEACHFRONT CONDO WITH SPECTACULAR VIEW IN HEART OF FLAMINGO

Playa Flamingo Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Wake to the sound of waves crashing on the shore just 50 metres away. Eat your breakfast on the balcony while enjoying one of the most coveted views in Flamingo. Return after a day at the beach or an eco tour to enjoy a glass of wine before heading out to one of Flamingo's exquisite restaurants.

If you are looking for quiet time, bring a beach chair down the our secluded beach. If you want a bit more action stroll over to the on-site Monkey Bar/Restaurant, one of Flamingo's most popular or take a short walk to the white sands and clear blue water at Playa Flamingo. Go horseback riding at Playa Conchal or just relax with a massage on the beach. Flamingo is located on the Northwest coast in the heart of Guanacaste, a short drive from the popular surf beach in Tamarindo, the zip lines and a variety of eco tours. Whether you are looking for a peaceful week of sunshine and rest or a combination of sun and eco tours this is the perfect rental.

This is a private condo with all the amenities of a resort. A pool, tennis courts, basketball hoops, as well as ping pong and foosball for the kids, It has been recently renovated and redecorated. Two bedrooms. 1 master with queen, private bathroom and private balcony. Spare room with queen-sized bed plus bunk beds.

Please note: The condo has an extra-large railed balcony with a beautiful view, but the rails, as you will see in the pictures, are open. These are not child-proofed. If you have young children, this may not be the ideal condo for you.

Picture taken at Playa Grande (the most incredible sunset location) on my visit in February.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

I visited Costa Rica earlier this winter and fell in love with it, especially the view.

It is just impossible to feel stressed while you are there. The locals joke that the most stressful part of their day is making sure that they don't miss the sunset. I can't wait to get back myself, but in the meantime I hope you enjoy it!

My wife and I decided to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary in Costa Rica and we were not disappointed. The Condo overlooks the bay and from sunrise to sunset it is a picturesque sight. The temperatures hit 40 degrees while we were there, but the air conditioners kept the condo a cool place to escape the heat when necessary. The closeness of restaurants to the condo was a plus but I advise visitors to rent a vehicle if you want to see sights...but if your looking for downtime with sun and peace/quiet you can't find anywhere better. We will be going back soon...it was that much fun!!!

A Great Choice

This place was a perfect choice for our Christmas vacation. My hubby and 3 teenage daughters all enjoyed ourselves with plenty of space. I'm glad I opted for a condo as opposed to hotel room(s). We found Sonia's condo to be exactly what we expected upon arrival, just as pictured on the site. It was clean, neat and well stocked in the kitchen area. We had planned on doing some cooking while there and very well could have, but found ourselves out and about for most of the day so we did only breakfast on the lovely patio to start off our day. The beds were comfy, the air worked great, we had plenty of hot water, there were bath and beach towels, an ice chest and the furniture was clean and fresh. The only one problem we ever encountered was with in condo Wi-Fi which was spotty at best, but the solution was just out the door at the bar using their Wi-Fi (while having a lovely cocktail).
Flamingo beach is the middle of 3 small, quaint little beach towns. There is not a whole lot of night life around but plenty to do for adventure during the day. The beach on the VRBO listing picture is a small private beach right out in front of the condo on the resort property. The long, white sand main beach in Flamingo is literally just a few minutes walk from the resort. You can also choose to relax at the resort pool, or venture out to one of the other close, surrounding beaches in the area but you would need some transportation to most of them. Not to worry though, the main beach in Flamingo is all you need!!
As far as the whole rental process goes, it was pretty simple from start to finish. Sonia just so happened to be there the first day when we arrived and Renee at Seaview rentals was just up the street if we needed her for anything. There is a good general list of things to do and places to see and eat in the condo for you to browse.
Close to the condo and without needing any outside transport there are plenty of tours and restaurants to chose from. I however enjoyed the freedom of having a car, especially with teenagers so we could explore more of the surrounding area.
We really enjoyed this simple, "non-Americanized" part of Costa Rica and would definitely recommend this spot for those who are looking for this type of vacation. This place is not for you if you are looking for a wild, crazy "first world" vacation spot...

Loved the View on the Balcony

During my initial search for a condo in this area, my final decision was made by the previous excellent reviews posted on this listing. I was not disappointed. The condo is exactly as shown and described in the listing. The owner, Sonia, is incredibly helpful, gets back to you very quickly and is very honest.

The number one selling feature of this condo, in my opinion, is the fantastic large balcony overlooking the ocean. It is very peaceful to sit out there. It is in full sun only very early in the morning so it can be enjoyed with shade in the heat of the day and it was very, very hot the entire time we were there.

Everything in the condo worked great including, Wi-Fi, air conditioning, hot water etc. We did not experience any major problems, and if you do the property manager is only a phone call and 5 min drive away.

I liked that this condo was within a resort complex, so we had access to 3 swimming pools, tennis courts, beach, restaurant and bar. Even while staying in this private condo you can open an account at the front desk to charge drinks and food to your room from the Monkey Bar or Restaurant.

This resort is on a hill so there are lots of stairs, would be difficult for those with mobility issues.

My biggest concern prior to my trip was about renting a car or not. I chose not to and this worked out just fine. Yes, it would have been convenient, but it is not at all necessary. The main Flamingo Beach, many restaurants, a small convenience store & tour operators are all within very easy walking distance. The property manager helped arrange a pick up from the airport that included a stop at a large grocery store, worth the extra cost, we really stocked up for the week. We used taxis to explore nearby; Playa Conchal, take a taxi to Brasilito $5 each way & then walk 10 min along the beach to get to Conchal's white sand beach. To Tamarindo was $25 each way. Taxis were always available at the bottom of the hill whenever we needed, or you can go to Eco Trans just down the street & they offer tours & same price as a taxi to Tamarindo. Both Grayline & Interbus pick up right at the hotel for trips to the Arenal Area (& many other places) & prices are very reasonable. So for 2 people I really did not spend any extra over what a car rental would have cost, for more than 2 people a rental would save money.

Would not hesitate to stay in this condo again in the future. Thanks Sonia for sharing your slice of paradise!

A slice of heaven in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 12, 2013
  • Stayed: Dec 2012
This condo was the PERFECT place for our Costa Rica vacation. It was clean, spacious, had 6 very comfortable beds, and a view that was just heavenly. Being able to sit on the deck and look out at the beach and the bay was so relaxing and peaceful. The kitchen was well equipped; we made many of our meals there. The Monkey Bar and pool are perfect; we enjoyed happy hour at the Monkey Bar most evenings and swam in the pools each day. The temperature of the pools was perfect, warm but refreshing.

The area is just perfect: if you can tear yourself away from the deck and the private beach, you can walk down to Flamingo Beach and swim the day away. The water in the ocean is so warm. I normally never swim with my kids because I get cold so quickly, but here we swam for hours. We would dive down and look on the bottom for shells (you have to work for it but they are there!), ride the waves, then swim some more.

We did not do any paid tours/excursions, but really had no trouble keeping busy. One day we drove to Tamarindo (quite the hippy town – I wouldn’t want to stay there but it was definitely a sight to see!), and on another we drove to Playa Negra. That was one of my favorite trips, there was a soccer game going on at the field in town that we stopped and watched, then we went to the beach. The beach was covered with shells (and it was low tide) so we had great fun shelling and found some beautiful ones to take home. Side note: if you put your shells in your carry-on luggage security will see them in the xray machine and confiscate them. ? We found this out the hard way. Fellow travelers told us we need to put them in the checked luggage and split them up in many places. At any rate, the beach there was beautiful! We also enjoyed going to Brasilito, a small town not far from the condo that had a great seafood restaurant plus a fun coffee shop that we had seen online.

Sonia and Renee (the property manager) were both so kind and helpful! Sonia answered all of our questions and gave us great advice while we were still planning our trip. Renee was always available for phone calls while we were there and gave us many tips of places to visit. We would definitely come back to this condo if we return to Costa Rica – it was our little slice of heaven.

Fabulous condo with an incredible view and amazing location!!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 28, 2013

We had to take a minute to write this review.... When we saw the pictures of this condo online, we loved it, but when we arrived, we could not believe how much nicer it was LIVE. We could not get enough of the view we had from our balcony. We spent every minute of the day (when we were in the condo) looking out onto our private beach. Not only was the view amazing, but also the Costa Rican patio furniture was beautiful and SO COMFORTABLE. Nothing like having your morning coffee looking at palm trees and beautiful ocean.
We went to Costa Rica with our two kids (ages 17 and 13), and all of us had plenty of personal space within the condo. All the amenities are in great condition and very clean.
The location is FABULOUS!! Not only were we on an incredible beach, but we were in walking distance to grocery stores and great restaurants.
We were well taken care of by both Renée the property manager and Sonia, the condo owner. Sonia informed us of some of the most interesting excursions we could do during our stay, and even recommended we go with Brian Gonzalez (who sometimes helps Renee out). We took advantage of her suggestions and had Brian organize a few excursions for us. He picked us up at the condo and brought us on an incredible riverboat tour. We saw crocodiles, exotic birds and monkeys really close up, then he brought us to lunch in an authentic Costa Rican home. The food was amazing. My son who eats nothing different had second helpings of EVERYTHING. On another occasion, Brian organized a day of ATV riding and ziplining... What an AWESOME time we all had (Brian's contact info is listed in our comments at the beginning of the book in the condo).
We also wanted to mention that there is some incredible fishing at the resort. If you walk along the grass of the resort (by the water) toward the marina, there is a rock point. We saw huge puffer fish, stingrays jumping out of the water and other cool fish.
There was lots to do in and around the resort and we never got bored. We would recommend this condo to anyone visiting Costa Rica.
