Casa Mimosa is uniquely situated on a private cul-de-sac,yet only a short 3 minute stroll to the incredible white sand of Flamingo beach and the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean. Casa Mimosa is nestled on a gentle slope overlooking the ocean, Flamingo estuary and the verdant hills of Potrero. The villa is beautifully appointed with attention to details to make it feel like home. This home promises to be the vacation spot to deliver peace, tranquility, and privacy.
Built in 2007, Casa Mimosa has only three villas nested into the side of a hill. The views from the Buena Vista Villa terrace are splendid and unique, looking over the pool, lush garden and the forest created by the estuary and hills of Portrero. The lights of Flamingo sparkle in the back ground at night while you listen to the sound of breaking surf.
The village of Flamingo is just down the beach less than a kilometer to restaurants and commercial centers. Surrounding Flamingo are many sight seeing tours and adventure tours.
The Buena Vista villa is very spacious with its great room and gourmet kitchen that is fully equipped for fine dinning or preparing light meals. The terrace is furnished for dinning to the sound of the surf, the chatter of the native birds, the growl of the howler monkeys or watch hawks soar across the valley. Enjoy the sunsets on the beach or from the terrace or barbecue around the pool.
We are an English speaking couple originally from the US and England who have traveled extensively and chose Costa Rica as our home. Since arriving in Costa Rica our passion has been to help the poor people to take care of their dogs and cats. We provide low cost/no cost spay/neuter surgery, flea/tick medication, help treat mild ailments, deliver low cost food and general education on caring for their pets. Some parts of Costa Rica have so many dogs suffering from sickness and malnutrition that it is a heart break, but not near Flamingo.
Sid and Dawn Scott purchased this villa in 1997
We travelled extensively though Costa Rica on our vacations and continually came back to Flamingo. It is a nice small up scale community on a magnificent white sand beach with gentle waves. With the estuary running along most of the beach it is not crowded by over development and it never will be. The sun shines almost every day, even in the rainy season. It is so nice to wake up to warm air and a lovely sunny day. During the rain, it is a good time for a nap or to catch up on email when the rains usually come in the afternoon.
When we found this lot with easy access to the beach, which is unusual in Flamingo, our fate was sealed. That is when we knew we were here for the long haul and built Casa Mimosa.
The peace and tranquility of the scenic outlook and the proximity to the beach and ocean. Many homes and hotels in Flamingo are located high on the hills and are a considerable hike or short drive to the beach. We are a very short easy walk to the beach.
My family and I spent a fabulous two weeks here and I have to say that it was the best vacation we have ever had. I looked at houses but decided to save some money and just rent this flat. Best decision I ever made. First off the owners were wonderful people who went beyond just giving directions. They live and care for their local community and it shows. The place was beautiful and spotless. The service provided with the small staff was exceptional and extremely friendly. The walk to the beach was really 3 minutes and down a wonderful trail that brought new adventures every time we walked it. From monkeys to Iguanas there was always something new to see. If you are looking for a place on Flamingo Beach THIS IS THE PLACE TO BE. We will be back!
Our family of five arrived to Casa Mimosa on my 45th bday after enduring a long season of Hurricane Sandy and the Blizzard. We were eager to relax, defrost and enjoy Costa Rica. Sidney, the owner of the property, greeted us warmly after a long days travel. We immediately felt at ease as he gave us a tour of Buena Vista, the 3 bed, 3 bath villa we had rented for the week. It was clear from the start the cleanliness and attention to deatil that went into this villa. The photos on the website were alluring but did not do the villa true justice. The craftsmanship and thought that went into the construction spoke loudly. Plus the room we had with three children: 3 bedrooms, each with their own bathroom and an large kitchen, family room and dining room, which seats 8. Every item we needed was available with beach chairs, boogie boards, full kitchen, linens etc. The view outside the wrap around porch was amazing overlooking the bird sanctuary which I enjoyed every morning has the sunrise came over the horizon.
The villa rental also come with a full maid service including laundry service. For a small additional fee, the in live maid would cook an amazing Costa Rica meal that was delicious after a full day of adventures. We ziplined, sailed, went on a river boat cruise to see local wildlife and enjoyed relaxing each day. Sidney would offer information or assistance when needed or requested. Beautiful gardens, grounds and a pool complete this oasis. We really enjoyed our week at the villa and would highly recommend for future travelers.
