About Elyne Johnson

I live in Vancouver, B.C., Canada. I am not yet retired but, can get away for extended vacations. I love to be in a warm place in 'winter', away from all that rain! I enjoy reading and relaxing at The Palms on Flamingo Beach. It is the ideal situation for me to just sit back and get away from all the daily 'business' of life.

Elyne Johnson purchased this villa in 2000

Why Elyne Johnson chose Guanacaste

I had always dreamed of a vacation home on the beach. After researching all the potential places in the world, I chose Costa Rica. I traveled there and went from Coast to Coast .....finallly ending my search on the white sands of Flamingo Beach. The particular unit I purchased was previously owned by a lovely couple from England. It was the first ever to sell in the complex! It is a corner unit and I feel is on the best location of any in the entire place.I call it the Madiera (wood in Spanish) House. It has all native and natural products from flooring to cabinetry. I just love the authenticity of the finishings.

What makes this villa unique

This unit has two Master Bedroom Suites, both with 'King-Size' beds. The beach-side Master suite has a private Jacuzzi Tub in the Bathroom with views right out to the beach. the unit also has lots of storage and hanging space for clothes and luggage plus, a great little built-in desk for the computer. There's lots of new beach equipment onsite. Examples are: a long board for surfing, 2 stand-up paddle boards, 4 boogie-boards, various sized masks and fins for snorkeling and some sand 'toys'.

A great nine nights

  • 5 of 5

The pictures you see on the account are exactly as they are in person. The customer service was top notch - to housekeeping, to the gardeners, to the entrance staff, to the concierge - were all friendly, courteous, and helpful. The unit itself was great - had all the furnishings and kitchen appliances you will need and was clean and well kept. The view from the upper deck or patio were beautiful - especially the sunsets.

Absolutely the Best in Costa Rica!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent an amazing week at The Palms #7 in late April 2017. This was our 5th visit to Costa Rica and we have stayed in various locations over the years (Playa Hermosa, Playa Conchal, Playa Tamarindo, and Playa Flamingo), but the Palms #7 far exceeded the other locations and accommodations. The condo is absolutely beautiful and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The views from downstairs, as well as the upstairs master bedroom, are unforgetable (especially the beautiful beach sunsets). The grounds have 24/7 security and are beautifully groomed. The endless pool is the perfect temperature and has a bar at one end where you can order drinks, breakfast, lunch and a late afternoon meal/snack every day of the week. The drinks and food are delicious. I would be remiss if I did not mention the excellent staff at The Palms, as well as the outstanding service provided by Elyne. I can't recommend The Palms #7 enough. I guarantee you will not be disappointed. We can't wait to return. Thank you Elyne for sharing your piece of paradise!!!!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and son and I stayed at The Palms #7 for spring break in March. This was my third trip to CR, but first to stay at the Palms. Flamigo beach is one of the most beautiful I have seen. It is only about 1 mile long, but not overly developed or crowded. The water is perfect for swimming, boogie boarding and body surfing. Elyne's property is perfect! The villa has all amenities you need and the location is perfect. Elyne and the staff will make sure you have everything you need to make your vacation unforgetable. We had the chef cook us a private dinner on the beach one night and the setting, service and food were wonderful. The Villas are a perfect size, you can enjoy your privacy or meet other families. There are lovely restaurants very close by and the concierge service will help you find perfect dining options and daily excursions to suite your needs. We will definitely be back!

Playa Flamingo area at it's best

  • 5 of 5

First off, we have been to CR countless times and a few in the Playa Flamingo area. Elyne does not sugarcoat her home in any way, and there is nothing you could find that she does not have covered. Leo, Martin, Al and staff instantly became friends of ours and made the stay even more enjoyable. Off shore fishing with the Bushwacker was better than expected, as was a couple new dining spots we dug up from the usual - the Smoking Pig for one. Well appointed, you will want for nothing the entire stay - and if you could think of something you may be missing quite sure they would attend to it immediately. If you get the chance, have Leo make his bananas foster at your place - best in the world bar none. Thanks to everyone for a great week, we will not hesitate to contact Elyne again when heading this way.

If you are thinking about it, do it!

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about how positive our experience was with this rental. From start to finish everything was wonderful. We usually go to Hawaii but decided to try something new. Once I saw the ad for this condo we decided this was where we wanted to go. Elyne was wonderful and sent us lots of information about the condo and the nearby activities and restaurants.

We got there earlier than we were supposed to check in but the gal at the office welcomed us and let us put our luggage in there and use the resort. As it turned out the housekeeper was done with the upstairs so she let us drop our luggage and relax on the patio. Such a beautiful condo and amazing views. So nice to be able to settle into a padded lounge chair with an umbrella every day. If you get hot you either jump into the ocean or the pool. Full service bar serves great drinks including a welcome one, or bring your own. The grounds are always meticulously clean and there is lots of security so you feel very safe (although I felt safe everywhere I went in Costa Rica).

They do not have a restaurant on site but Coco Loco is a very short walk down the beach and has reasonable food. You can get it to go or they said they could deliver also. We loved their seared ahi tuna tacos. We also liked Angelina's and especially La Sodita Italiana.

We did the Palos Verde boat tour and it was really a nice day. Saw lots of crocodiles and monkeys. Scarlet Macaws and lots of other beautiful birds. Lots of large iguanas and "Jesus lizards". The included lunch was very good and the pottery demonstration also nice.

Unfortunately my wife and got sick, a nasty URI that we likely caught on the plane. We weren't able to do a lot of the other things we had planned like zip lining and scuba diving. It was still nice to be able to lounge on such a beautiful beach.

I should give out cab driver, Jose, a shout out. We got his number from the front desk. He would come quickly and seemed to know everyone. We would walk into crowded restaurants and he'd manage to get us seated right away. We were going to dinner and my wife last minute decided she couldn't make it and was hoping for some chicken soup. Jose dropped us at the restaurant. When we called him to pick us up he stopped at a restaurant that he knew made chicken soup and brought a bowl for my wife. Really nice people.

They did have a super bowl party that was great with wings, sliders, calamari and more. The last night we had a lobster dinner on the beach.

Even Better Than it Looks

  • 5 of 5

We previously heard from friends that this was a very nice property. Having spent a week there we found the description to be grossly UNDERSTATED. The complex was quite good and this unit was exceptional. Local staff made all kinds of arrangements for us - Alexandra (the concierge) was almost like a personal assistant. All four of us agreed that The Palms #7 was a perfect place to spend New Years Eve, or any other time. Thanks Elyne for allowing us to rent your condo. Jon Pollock
