Playa Flamingo Condo Rental Photos and Description

2 bedroom 2 full bathrooms and a sofa bed sleeps 6-people

Playa Flamingo has resorts, restaurants, night clubs, casino's, grocery store, and a pharmacy. It is located 1 hour from Liberia Airport and 20 minutes away from a local airport in Tamarindo. Live the peaceful condominium lifestyle when you want and the resort lifestyle when you want. You will have access to the Flamingo Beach Resort with its oceanfront pool with a swim up bar and a children's pool. Along with the use of pool tables, tennis courts, and a casino. The Flamingo beach and the resort is a 5 minute walk from the condo. The condo is decorated by a custom designer with all the amenities. Each room has its own air conditioner for your comfort. There is a ocean view pool and fitness center on site. The kitchen has a coffee maker, microwave, stove, refrigerator, utensils, & a toaster. Flamingo is known for its sports fishing and there are several championship golf courses. There is tropical dry forests with monkeys and birds. You can snorkel, horseback ride, go on a canary tour.

Get away from everything and relax with the beach: Flamingo is a quaint town were there is no hurry or stress. Just relax and do what you want. Relax by the pool or beach or just explore the tropical forest to find birds and monkeys. Go on a tour or just have lunch at a local restaurant on the beach. You can take a snorkeling tour or go on a boat or take a bike ride or a hike. You could go to the local surf town in Tamarindo about 20 minutes away and surf, eat, shop, or stroll on the beach. There is a golf course nearby. Just enjoy and get away from everything.

Restaurants: There are several good restaurants in Flamingo. I would recommend Marie's for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.

Mar e Sol to watch the sunset for a more formal dinner. Amberes across from the condo that has a restaurant and a night club. There are also several restaurants in Brasalito and surfside which is a 5 minute drive.

Activities: Flamingo is known for its sports fishing and there are several championship golf courses. There is also many local activities to do such as snorkeling, horseback riding, ATC riding, canopy tour, the mangrove estuary tour, and checking out the fabulous beaches. Or do the full day tours to Arenal Volcano, the Tabacon spa, and the Monte Verde Cloud Forest.

Paradise found

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Mary's condo was short (3 days) and very sweet. I was there with my daughter, son-in-law and two grandchildren aged 4 and 2.

The place was superb, clean and very efficient with a full balcony accessed by each room that offered an awesome view of the ocean, the mountains and beaches. It was more than we had expected from the website only because to see the view in person is that much better.

Mary was very good in making this stay possible although we did not realize that we had access to the Flaming Beach Resort until the day we were leaving by a conversation with another renter. Unfortunately the property manager was quite busy and did not give us all the full information that would have added some value to the vacation. We also realized there was a safe but we were not given the details about the safe combination.

Regardless, we loved the place went to the Flamingo beach, Conchales beach and made great use of the Monkey bar that my grandchildren, parents and grandmother really appreciated.

In terms of restaurant, other than the Monkey bar, we ate mostly at home and were happy to do so with the clean and efficient kitchen. I shopped at Super Masai which is about 5 minutes away by car and found the prices reasonable.

I recommend this place highly and thank Mary for sharing her beautiful place.

Owner's Response: I have heard through a few people that my property manager was not notifing my guests about the amenities like she used to. I just hired another property manager starting in April of 2010 and i think she will give the attention to detail that i once had with my other property manager. Thank you for letting me know if the problem so i can fix it.

Relaxing, safe, fun!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Mary's condo. It met all of our expectations. We found it well furnished and equipped, and spotlessly clean, and only lacked a safe - which we hear has now been installed. Don't be fooled if the agent tells you that you only have access to the Flamingo Marina Resort, which is right below the condo balcony. We went as well to the Flamingo Beach resort, which is on the other side of the condo and on the main white sand beach. We checked in at the reception, and they gave us wrist bands which entitled us to pool/beach towels. We spent most of our mornings here in the pool or on the beach. In the afternoons we went mostly to the Marina Resort, where there were fewer people and more shade, and a delightful little cove beach which was excellent for swimming. The drinks from the bar here were also much cheaper than at the other resort. They had an excellent barbeque, with live music, here one night that was very reasonably priced.

The little "supermarket" just down the road (3 minutes) from the condo was barely adequate, and if we were staying longer we'd have taken a taxi to the bigger one farther away. It was also a bit pricy. For breakfast and lunch it was adequate. In the evenings we found there were plenty of restaurants right nearby, and we went to Mar-y-Sol to celebrate Bev's birthday, which was superb! A couple of nights we also brought in pizzas from the little pizzaria next to the food store, which were very good - we can especiallyrecommend the "spicy Italian". We enjoyed using Mary's DVD player, and watched several of her movies - but the selection is a bit restricted if you were there longer, and we did not find anywhere to rent movies in the community.

We would definitely love to return to Mary's condo one day, and would not hesitate to recommend it.

Owner's Response: Yes, we did get a safe and are bringing many more movies when we go in April 2010. It is nice to hear the comments to see how we can improve information we give to our guests about their stays and to make everyone's vacations to meet their expectations because you may not know what to ask before you arrive. Your comments really helped thank you. Kind Regards, Mary

Fabulous fishing adventure

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the condo and were in awe when we walked in. There is a fabulous view of the water and the place had a homey feeling to it.It was nice to make our chorizo and eggs and our coffee in the morning. Then we met our fishing guide in the parking lot of the condo and we fished for 3 days. The 3 of us caught 4 sailfish, 3 mahi mahi, and 150 lbs of yellow fin tuna. We cooked our fresh fish in the kitchen and it melted in our mouth. We also enjoyed the access to the beachfront resort. We sat at the swim up bar and then we went to the casino and did a little gambling. The fast pace of the resort and the quiet hominess of the condo made it very enjoyable.

Wonderful Stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time during our March 2008 vacation in this unit. The furnishings are very pleasant, the condo is very clean and the area is mostly quiet. Our young adult son stayed with us and felt he had a lot of privacy as the bedrooms are separated by a living area. The free laundry facility was a nice bonus and having an ATM on the street level was convenient. Flamingo is a small community, but we found it quite relaxing. We'd definitely stay here again.

Playa Flamingo -Sunset Heights Condo

  • 4 of 5

Feb. 2008 four of us were at the condo. It is lovely and the curtains and furnishings of great quality. Loved having our own spacious bedroom, walk in closet and private ensuite. Also our own tv as well as one in the other bedroom and living room! Great idea! Great shower and bathroom as well. The other couple equally enjoyed their room.

The property manager was very personable and easy to deal with - of Gold Coast proprerty mgmt.

We enjoyed the resort pool we had rights to and their faciilties. It is on a short but very steep hillside. Great view from the condo.

Our only fault we found was it is a little noisy from the road morning and evening. But close the doors and use AC. That is why the 4 stars. Also free laundry included. Bonus!

Excellent clean appliances, microwave, fridge etc.

Between Playa flamingo and tamarindo we loved Flamingo. We were lucky!! Did a private 4 hr. snorkelling cruise on Vagabonda - awesome! Catch an awesome sunset and dinner (twice we ate there and it was an event each time!) at Mar y sol at top of hill. Very very special. You will have a great holiday here. The beaches have hardly anybody and they call it crowded! Lots to do for day trips as well. Sue
