About Dr. Igor Svoboda

Dr. Igor Svoboda - retired Veterinarian and Tom Graydon - retired Criminologist & Realtor - have one thing in common: An intense LOVE of nature and all of God's creatures - especially things tropical!

We have always been surrounded by pets and plants, mountains and water, so it was only natural for us to gravitate to this beautiful little corner of Paradise...

Dr. Igor Svoboda purchased this villa in 1989

Why Dr. Igor Svoboda chose Guanacaste

After travelling extensively through many countries of the world, we came to Costa Rica for the first time 30 years ago and instantly fell in love with the nature, people, flora and fauna of this gentle country. Almost 30 years ago (1989) we purchased a very large natural preserve nestled above the Pacific ocean in a very sleepy, quiet community of Flamingo Beach in the Pacific North-Western province of Guanacaste. We never looked back - never regretted this decision. In fact, we started by building our first house. Then a guest house, followed by a pool. Before we knew it, we had designed and built a unique complex of beautiful Villas with 2 large pools - all built with the highest regard for their tropical surroundings and natural setting. From every window or terrace, one can appreciate the magic of Nature. It has been very rewarding personally for us to create this unique little corner of Paradise!

What makes this villa unique

Flamingo Beach is often referred to as the Monte Carlo of Costa Rica's 'Gold Coast' !

Balmy tropical breezes and ionized air coming off the Pacific Ocean are wonderfully healing... The health benefits are astounding!

Come relax in this healing cradle and rejuvenate yourself!

Enjoy spectacular vistas that will re-energize your spirits!

Join with other international travellers who have found a true sense of peace in this tranquil, gentle land!

COSTA RICA: NO ARTIFICIAL INGREDIENTS!

Guestbook comments from the manager

  • 5 of 5

One of the secret places of Costa Rica!

You will not regret choosing Villas Casa Loma for your next vacation. Accommodations are all unique, spacious and comfortable. There is something for everyone. (one of our favorite activities was to settle in with a glass of wine on our spacious covered terrace and toast the sun setting over the ocean each evening.) Consider the fabulous sunsets, the wealth of wildlife, the friendliness of the 'locals' and expats, the fascinating things to see and do!

Thank you Tom and Igor for making Villas Casa Loma such a special place to relax in! The pools, views, area activities, the fine restaurants, the friends we met ... All special... We will always remember our stay there with relatives and friends from Europe. From the moment we got off the airplane we did nothing but smile and laugh. What a great vacation!

There is so much to see and do in the area of Flamingo Beach. We hardly scratched the surface, but kept very busy during our 2 month visit to Costa Rica. We are all planning to return for the fun and the friendships.

The beaches are just the start for a wonderful tropical experience. Foodies will love the huge selection of great restaurants in the area. Active individuals will certainly enjoy - as we did - the many options for activities on both land and in the water.

We fished offshore one day and had a fabulous time. The next day we went for a day trip to some fascinating local villages, took a spectacular river cruise, ate delicious local food and bought indigenous souvenirs for friends back home. Other days we either relaxed by one of the pools, visited various beaches of the area and snoozed in the shade of the palms that dot the property.

Much to do! We highly recommend this property. Perhaps we will meet you there on our next trip.

Owner's Response: Thanks to you all for your visit! This was your fourth visit, and this time you brought some relatives, too! We really had a "blast" and got a great kick out of meeting them. We seem to be developing into a destination for family get-togethers - and what better place than Villas Casa Loma! Lots of room to spread out - and a friendly, welcoming atmosphere, too! Your active family certainly took in the sights and were constantly on the move. One of our favourite memories is from the day we all loaded into a couple of vehicles and did an amazing day trip to Nicoya and Nosara Beach, stopping at Guanacaste's only coffee processing plant for a tour and an interesting side trip through the hills to the indigenous village of Matambe. Our final destination of Nosara was crowned by spectacular views and a great beach-side meal. We certainly enjoyed the day! We'll certainly do it again and again! We hope that you and your family will return again soon, too. There is so much more for you all to see and do here! We're looking forward to your next visit to our little corner of Paradise! PURA VIDA!! Tom and Igor

Enjoyed our stay at Villas Casa Loma.

  • 5 of 5

It was a family vacation of 8, with each group having their own suite within 2 of the beautiful villas. We all shared the same pool and ate our meals on the terrace. The local restaurants were great and there are 3 great beaches in the vicinity, however, a car is recommended to get around. The property is well maintained and very safe as the owners live on-site. They were very pleasant to deal with and extremely helpful. I would recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Thanks, Tessa, for your Review of Villas Casa Loma. We always appreciate it when our guests point out the positives - and negatives - of their visit. On the positive side, we are delighted, of course, that you and your extended family had a wonderful time here in Guanacaste. There is so much to see and do and always new and exciting experiences for all ages and interests. As you pointed out, there are many fine beaches and superb restaurants close to our property. One can certainly eat one'sway through the area and still have lots more restaurants to visit after a two-week stay! Some are adjacent to lovely beaches which also create a memorable venue for our spectacular sunsets, too! Las Catalinas, Coco Loco, Sugar Beach, Tiki's, The Beach House and Costa Rica Sailing Club are but a few. Life is good here. So much to see and do - both on land and in the ocean! Scuba diving, sailing, fishing, horseback riding, sightseeing, birding, exploring are but a few great experiences offered here in the Gold Coast of Costa Rica. On the negative side, we want to thank you for pointing out that some kitchen utencils were not to your standard. (We will look into this, I assure you.) Electric stoves here are, unfortunately, a bit slow. (This seems to be a general problem due to a somewhat weaker electrical current than what you are used to up North.) As always, we try very hard to meet our Clients' needs and apologize for any perceived inconvenience. Overall, it would seem that your visit was both a restful and happy one for you all. We look forward to being of service to you on a future trip to Costa Rica and send our warmest best regards to you and your family. PURA VIDA from our little corner of Paradise! Tom and Igor

First trip to Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

Igor & Tom ~ thank you so much for your hospitality to me and my family this past December. We made our decision based on finding Villas Casa Loma on Trip Advisor and the reviews that were written by others who stayed there.

I could go on and on about our stay…but to simply say “it was everything and more” pretty much covers it. I instantly fell in love with Costa Rica as I had hoped I would and I have no doubt Villas Casa Loma sealed the deal. We enjoyed the many beaches, four wheeling, body surfing, zip lining, soaking up the sun around the pool and happy hour with the beautiful Pacific coast sunset.

Now that we are home in Texas we have visions of relocating to Costa Rica dancing in our heads!

Pura Vida ~ Maggie

Amazing Experience

  • 5 of 5

We love staying at Tom and Igor's fabulous villas. This was our 10th year coming down and enjoying their apartments and pool. We have traveled extensively throughout Central America, as well Costa Rica and Tom and Igor's Villas are by the far, the best places to rent. The amenities are fabulous, the staff are friendly and honest. The views and sunsets are spectacular! It is the perfect place to come alone or with the family to just relax and enjoy what Costa Rica has to offer. The Iguanas come by every afternoon for a visit and the Howler Monkey's hang in the tree's greeting everyone with their loud voices. We love it!!

Owner's Response: Helena: It was great to have you and your family visiting us again! Next time, we hope you will find more time to relax and unwind... (As you know, this is a perfect spot for that!) Every time you come down there are new and wonderful restaurants to tempt you, as well as great shops to capture your imagination. We look forward to your next visit and hope that you will have time for some serious painting, reading in a quiet spot on your private terrace or relaxing by the pools and visiting with your many friends here. Too much to do. Too little time to do it in! Come on back soon... You are missed and always welcome here in our little corner of Paradise. PURA VIDA! Tom and Igor

Villas Casa Loma

  • 5 of 5

You definitely know you are on vacation when you stay at Villas Casa Loma. The atmosphere is very relaxing, quiet, and has great views of the Pacific Ocean. The grounds are well maintained, actually manicured, and the large swimming pool is the cleanest I've ever seen. There is actually another pool that I never used. The architecture is impressive with a lot of attention to detail. The owners live on site and are available anytime and they are very helpful including suggestions and directions for local restaurants, banks, shops, etc. This just might be the best place to stay in Playa Flamingo.

Owner's Response: Your comfort and happiness is our reward, Alan! It was a pleasure to have you visiting us again this year! We are sure that you will be able to see plenty of whales around Cape Cod, so perhaps they are not as exciting for you to see cavorting just offshore here. However, as you have discovered, we have a wide variety of birds and beasts including caymans, crocodiles, parrots, spoonbills, turtles, iguanas, jungle cats, monkeys and a wide variety of other wildlife to see... And don't forget the volcanos, hot springs and freshwater lakes, rivers and waterfalls! Explore and tour or just relax and read a good book in a quiet nook around our property. The choices are unlimited -and always available. We're looking forward to seeing you -hopefully next year again. (We'll be sure to tell Willy that you appreciate his efforts in keeping the pools in A-1 condition!) PURA VIDA! Tom and Igor

WONDERFUL HOLIDAY EXPERIENCE !

  • 5 of 5

WONDERFUL HOLIDAY EXPERIENCE !

Our passion is travel…After extensive tours throughout Europe, Asia, North and South America we decided to visit Costa Rica in Central America. My wife and I were both very curious about this country, as we had heard that it is a country without an army, with the highest standard of living in Central America and known as ‘The Switzerland of Central America’. Our long trip from Slovakia to Hungary, Holland, Florida and finally to Liberia, Costa Rica was well worth the effort! We spent a very satisfying week at Villas Casa Loma in Flamingo Beach. We experienced hot springs, a spa in the jungle, volcano, beautiful beaches, great restaurants, friendly gentle people and incredible flora and fauna! Truly a tropical Paradise! Our hosts, Igor and Tom were always eager to help with bookings and suggestions for places to go. Our accommodations were spacious and the property was everything we could have wanted. The views of the surrounding area from our Suite were gorgeous, the pool and gardens inviting and the staff delightful. We were able to relax completely in the secure environment that is Villas Casa Loma. In summary, this was a truly amazing trip. The time passed too quickly. We certainly recommend this lovely topical Paradise! Thank you for the wonderful experiences - we will be back!

Owner's Response: Well, you have just scratched the surface a tiny bit...Next time, there will be opportunities to visit more national parks, beautiful beaches and rain forests. Don't overlook a side trip to nearby Nicaragua, too! For some really unforgettable experiences, visit Isla Ometepe on Lago de Nicaragua. This is the largest volcanic island in fresh water in the world and has 2 volcanos - Concepcion (active) and Maderas (inactive). This lake is the largest in Central America and Concepcion is the most perfectly formed active volcano cone in the world. And don't overlook a visit to Granada - the first European city in mainland America. All this just a short distance from Flamingo and well worth the visit. Again, there is so much to see and do here! Do come back for the cultural experiences offered by our area and for the historical and touristic value as well... We look forward to seeing you both again soon! PURA VIDA ! Tom and Igor
