Guestbook comments from the owner

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in August 2015

When we started researching condo rentals in the Playa Flamingo area, we found lots of choices. My cousin, who lives in Playa Flamingo suggested we look at this condo. Glad he pointed us this direction. The stay was perfect. Its located on the third floor with beach front views, nice sized patio, two large bedrooms, in perfect condition. Beautifully furnished and stocked with everything you would need. Want to go boogie boarding? There are boogie boards. Want to blend up papaya drinks? Great blender, great glassware, wonderful assortment of cooking pots and pans. Great beds, great linens and towels, great A/C. CLEAN. Pride of ownership shows. All I can say is that our stay there was PERFECT.

Great Location and Condo

  • 5 of 5

My wife(Patty) and I just return from our stay at Flamingo Beach-Feb 11th thru Feb 18th. This was our third trip to Flamingo but first stay at this property. It was exactly as advertised. If you like sitting on the balcony and watching the sunset, this is the place for you. The beach is just down the hill and if you have a car-which I recommend-there are several other great beaches near by. Jim and Daphne called when we first arrived just to see if we had any questions. They were very helpful. We plan to stay again next year.

What a spot!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Playa Flamingo is beautiful. The beach is amazing! It was just what we were looking for in Costa Rica. Daphne and Jim's condo at Oceanica is exactly as described! I don't think we could have been more comfortable. Everything is pristine and it is a very safe place as well. Daphne was most helpful in answering all of our questions. She even booked an excursion, called us when we arrived and set us up with a car rental and exact directions from Liberia to the condo. A car is very necessary in Playa Flamingo. The condo complex is on a large hill and walking up from the beach with chairs would be a challange at the end of the day without a car. The sunsets were gorgeous! We did not need to go to any restaurant until after the sunset. It was so beautiful having our own private sunset on the balcony.

We dined out almost every night. You must eat at Coco Loco on the beach. Marie's was fun and delicious as well. Angelina's food was excellent, but if you don't order drinks, the service ceases to exist (sadly).

We had a great time at Playa Conchal beach. Its great for snorkeling. The Lazy Lizard was a blast, but the snorkeling was not great. I still recommend it.

We went on a river boat ride in Palo Verde on the Tempisque River and Jose was our guide. We saw lots of monkeys and crocodiles and truly enjoyed the day. Tamarindo was fun to walk around, but you really don't need to go there. Playa Flamingo was perfect! If you are hesitant, don't be. You will love this condo and the area!

PS~ One suggestion, go to the super markets on your way from the airport, don't wait until you get to Playa Flamingo. The local ones don't have much to offer, but the larger Markets are great.

Better than any hotel!

  • 5 of 5

This was our third trip to the Playa Flamingo area and it was definitely our favorite because of this condo. The condo has everything you could ever need and the view from both the condo itself and the community pool were stunning. Daphne went out of her way to answer even our most ridiculous questions prior to our trip and even called after our arrival to make sure we had arrived safely and everything was in order.

The condo has a very well equipped kitchen in case your interested in cooking during your trip; however, it's also within walking distance to several great restaurants in case you just want to relax. If you're looking for a place to stay in Playa Flamingo I couldn't give this place a better recommendation. You definitely won't regret it. We can't wait to go back!

Awesome & Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

The Condo:

This was our first visit to CR and at the risk of sounding very repetitive, I am going to say it anyway. This Condo is absolutely amazing! We were actually taken back by the views, the weather, and beauty of it all. The condo itself is very well maintained. The beds are very nice and excellent to sleep on. there is usually a very nice breeze that can get strong at times so you need to be careful of the bedroom doors. The condo is relatively close to the beach at say 200 to 250 yards. The local terrain is very hilly and as such it us a little bit of a walk uphill when you come back from the beach. Our Garmin and TrackIT Maps didn’t show Oceanica on any of the categories so you may have to use the resort right across the street to find it as addresses are not used in CR at all. We give this one 5 star rating!!!! Well worth the time to visit.


Daphne was absolutely the best host you could ever ask for! She provided all the information I asked for and needed. She even graciously helped with the car rental (Economy). Daphne is indeed kind and tremendously gracious.


We chose to eat at the local restaurants (locals call them Sodas). There are a good number of these within say 5 miles and all are wonderful. Local CR cuisine is amazing and filling. Even though we do not speak Spanish it wasn’t that hard to figure out and order food. Ticas and Ticos are wonderful people.

We would go back in a heart beat!

So perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was amazing! It is such a great way to experience Costa Rica, instead of a hotel. The condo is luxurious, with marble countertops, nice fixtures and lots of conveniences. You can make your own meals if you feel so inclined, or slip out to enjoy one of the restaurants in Playa Flamingo.

It's fun to play in the surf at Playa Flamingo. The Lazy Lizard sunset cruise is not to be missed. Going to see the turtles lay eggs and the hatchlings run to the sea is amazing. And the sunset every night is not to be missed: at this condo, you have a front row centre view of it.

Such great people, such great weather, such a great condo - enjoy!

Car: recommended

While Tamarindo maybe the most developed beach resort along the Guanacaste coastline, Playa Flamingo is still one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. Situated on the country’s Gold Coast, Playa Flamingo is located in Punta Salinas, northwest of Bahia Brasilito, 75 km southwest of Liberia. Located in between the beaches of Playa Potrero and Playa Brasilito, Playa Flamingo or Flamingo Beach is the sole full-service marina between Acapulco and Panama on the Pacific coast of Central America.

This condo has wireless internet

Other Activities: ATV, Zip Lining, Canopy Tours

Golf: Nearby, for the golfing enthusiast is also an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. This course is located at the Reserva Conchal Resort facility and reservations can be made by contacting the Pro shop.
