PLEASE NOTE: My home is NOT with in walking distance to the beaches. It is located 500 feet above the beaches and it is a 5 minute drive down the hill, to the beaches, restaurants, grocery stores, bars, etc. Of course, you can walk to it, but it is long way back up the hill! Great, if you like the exercise!
There is a completely different 'feel' up at my home. Usually there is a nice breeze, which keeps the mosquitoes away. And the views, as stated in most all of the reviews, is spectacular!

About Rick Festa
I 'discovered' Costa Rica in 2001 and immediately fell in love with all its beauty and diversity. As a home builder in the Northeast, I found it very difficult to build in the winter months. My friend just returned from CR and told me all about how beautiful it was, how friendly the people were and that you could buy property there as a foreigner. On my first trip there, I had no intention on buying a home, but rather to find a lot and build a home, until I found Casa Prieta! I stood in the backyard, overlooking the ocean and islands below the home and quickly changed my mind. This is what I've been looking for all my life. I decided to buy the home and rent it to others to enjoy too. It gives me great pleasure to be able to share such a place and hear what others have to say in my guest books at the home. I hope to share it with you too!
Rick Festa purchased this villa in 2002
Why Rick Festa chose Playa Flamingo
Guanacaste is the driest, sunniest part of Costa Rica. There is usually a slight breeze, so no bugs! And of course, you get to see glorious sunsets over the ocean, 365 days a year!!
What makes this villa unique
It's the VIEW, VIEW, VIEW!!!!!! The ever-changing vista is what I like most about my home. You can stay on the beach, but at night, all you see is darkness. At my home, during the day, you see gorgeous views of the ocean, islands, surf, mountains and valleys. At night, you see all the lights below the home. Breathtaking!!
