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 Playa Flamingo
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'.

Fantastic property in a fantastic location - suited us perfectly as a family of 4 looking for a quiet place by the beach. Surpassed expectations
This is a sparkling clean property and condo, in a beautiful location walking distance to Coco Loco, a very good restaurant. The concierge is helpful as well. Our 7 year old loved the pool and beach.
Fabulous family vacation at The Palms
We stayed with our two daughters (9/7) over Spring Break and couldn't be more happy with Villa #7The Palms. Elyne helped organize transfers and connected us with the concierge who was able to arrange day trips that were suitable for the family. The villa was perfect and was better than the pictures suggest. Great for kids with a simple walk out to the pool and further down to a great beach that had some good sized waves but no current and or undertow. We don't do cruises or all-inclusives and for a week long vacation get tired of resort fare. Although we didn't sample any of the food available it was nice to know we had it available if need be. The property is a 5-minute golf cart ride to a small shop that offers you all the staples and there are a variety of local(ish) restaurants all within a 10 minute drive. Having lived in a variety of countries and travelled extensively we're a bit picky with the experience offered by resorts etc. The Palms and Elyne exceeded our expectations and we wouldn't hesitate in recommending it to anyone looking to escape packaged tourism but not completely go it alone in your own home.
A week in Paradise.
Beautiful accommodations with spectacular views of the ocean. It was our second visit to the Palms and this Villa had the best location/view. Villa was plenty roomy(did not spend much time in it though - too nice outside) for our family of four and had everything you could possibly need. Within walking distance to many area restaurants so no need to cook.
Elyne and Jorge went above and beyond to make sure we were taken care of. From answering questions, accommodating late arrival, and even setting up our transportation. Everything went flawless and was as relaxing as advertised.
Can't wait to return!!
AMAZING property and people
We truly felt like we were in paradise at The Palms. During our first day we decided we would be back some day....and that thought has not changed. The property is even more beautiful than what you see in the pictures. My husband had early morning coffee from a different 'perfect' place every day. (Our balcony, our patio, beach side loungers, pool loungers.) Everything is very clean/ well kept inside the unit and outside.
Flamingo beach is awesome and has amazing sunsets. Our family enjoyed boogie boarding, fishing and looking for shells. We visited some other beaches in the area and appreciated that Flamingo beach near the Palms was not crowded and had a very relaxed vibe. We enjoyed food prepared by The Palms chef and we also enjoyed walking 5 minutes down the beach to a place called Coco Loco.
There are many things to do in the area if you are looking for adventure. We surfed, fished, took a catamaran/snorkel trip and a ATV Monkey Sanctuary Tour. It's nice to get up early to enjoy the peacefulness and do excursions before it gets too hot.
The service we had was excellent. Elyne responded quickly to our inquiry and provided helpful information prior to our arrival. Jorge was very helpful; arranging our transportation to and from the airport with a grocery stop on our way in. He also greeted us and gave us the tour and information we needed to know about #7. The Palms staff was always friendly and very helpful when we needed to arrange for rides, order food, ask questions, etc.
Can't wait until next time...Pura Vida!
Location wonderful. Cleanliness excellent. Security excellent. Staff outstanding.
