Overview

About the property

5BR, 4BA (Sleeps 10) Prvt Flamingo Beachfront Home - Poolside TikiBar/Kitchen

The Beach House on Playa Flamingo is a beachfront home centered on the most prestigious, pristine, white sand beach on Costa Rica’s North Pacific Coast. This 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath home, easily accommodates 10 people plus. Please Read Our Reviews!

Being on the center of this beach gives our unique location an unparalleled access to Flamingo Beach and view of the islands and year round sunsets. You also have the convenience of walking down the beach to Flamingo Village. Wake up to the gentle sound of surf, sit on the deck and pour yourself a fresh cup of Costa Rican coffee and watch the kids play on the beach or in the pool. Although many rentals in the area claim to be on or in Playa Flamingo, most are not. There is only ONE Flamingo Beach and we are on the center of it!

We offer the services of a full time cook at your convenience for a very reasonable rate that goes directly to him. The cook's own menu at the house includes everything from a variety of local Costa Rican

dishes and North American favorites to different ways of grilling the fish you caught that day on our BBQ. He’s also happy to teach you how to make fresh

homemade tortillas! All you pay for are the groceries and his weekly rate.

And… if that’s not enough, the “Toes in the sand” dining of Coco Loco is right there with menu and ambiance second only to us.

Enjoy being beachfront on Flamingo Beach with a private swimming pool and tropical outdoor pool bar/kitchen, and barbeque grill. Take advantage of our Wireless internet and free international phone calls as you enjoy your favourite snacks, meals, drinks and major sporting events poolside. Or leave the world behind. With the beach only a few steps away, you can enjoy your cold drink on the warm sand. You're close enough to go back for a refill!

We have retained Costa Rica's 'Pura Vida' (pure life) ambiance upstairs with a variety of native hardwoods. Downstairs is a spacious living area with entertainment center, a suite and two ocean view bedrooms, a large guest bathroom and shower, Teak ceiling, an office area with a desk, computer and broadband wireless internet set up.

The rest of the property includes a back yard area surrounded by a tropical forest great for viewing a variety of Costa Rican wildlife such as Howler Monkeys and many species of tropical birds, flora and fauna.

Our night watchman assures you of a good night sleep. Seeing as this is a

somewhat boring position in our neighborhood and Flamingo has its own security

force, he doubles as a turtle watchman and upon request, will wake you up if

they come to nest in front of the Beach House.

His specialty however is building bon fires. Any night that you prefer, just say

“Fogata” and grab your marshmallows...he’ll get a good one going. He is also our

evening coconut picker, maintenance man and cleans the pool/grounds before he leaves in the morning.

Flamingo also boasts the area’s largest sport fishing, sailing, diving and water sports fleet with near-by surfing for all your ocean enjoyment. At the Beach House, we can help you arrange everything from transportation, all tours and activities to personal massages at the house.

We only rent to one group at a time. You will always have the entire property to yourself. Flamingo Beach Village is within walking distance where you will find restaurants, groceries, salon, disco, casino, pharmacy and Ocean activities.

We are owner managed, available locally and dedicated to making your Costa Rica vacation relaxing, comfortable and memorable.

Pura Vida!

Why The Owner chose Guanacaste

Because we had the unique opportunity to have a 5 bedroom private everything on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Flamingo Beach. We were in the right place at the right time.

What makes this house unique

Going from Ocean to the pool instantly. Having the closest pool and bar to Flamingo Beach period. Watching an unobstructed Sunset into the water 365 days a year.

Simply being on Playa Flamingo itself.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Mark for enabling our family to spend an enjoyable week on THE BEACH in delightful Costa Rica. Evans & Carla continued to provide delicious meals. Like all of the locals we met, they were always pleasant, happy and anxious to please. Thanks also to Jonas for arranging some exciting excursions for us. Our 5 yr old granddaughter will be talking about the Monkey's, baby Crocodile and Iguana's we saw at the river for years to come.





P.S. We highly recommend the Black Stalion Café and Saloon in Tamarindo. The day of horseback riding, ziplining and BBQ dinner was great. Owner/Host, Alex is a great character. Dining with him was like being at a neighborhood party.

Wonderful Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family vacation! It is located directly across a small road to the beautiful beach. The swimming pool was large with lounge chairs and an outdoor kitchen. The large balcony area was the perfect place to watch the absolutely beautiful sunsets and eat great dinners prepared by Yvonne. Ericka was a great housekeeper and even did our wash. Christian was available if we had a question and also provides great tours.

The Perfect Family Beach house Dream vacation Right on the BEACH!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at this big house with great Air-conditioning and the Best Beach Sunset and Morning

View. You will have plenty of room, lots of bedrooms, kitchen and a swimming pool.Clean beds and linens and comfy beds. We have two boys and

they loved the beach, the pool, the beach the pool: repeat! We had a delicious meal made by the chef, and our own great Rum we got rom the Super Massai market so we could try local are rums.

We will be back. We felt totally safe and every question we had about the are and trip to other beaches an ATV's for the kids were answered. We were close to Poco Loco for the

rum drinks and fun, and a short walk to our beds! The owner is an angel, she is so thoughtful, we even had a bonfire at night on the beach by the butler/guard. The price is excellent. WE felt like we were home.....Thank you for providing such a wonderful vacation experience........

Wonderful!

  • 4 of 5

This is our 2nd stay and it was wonderful! Nice beaches and the sunsets were magnificent. I would have given a 5 but the hot tub and pool fountain were broken. I highly recommend the chef Ivonne she is definitely a special person!

The perfect get-away

  • 5 of 5

Our trip was 2 different big families all in the same place, wide age range from 18 - 65+, and we loved our trip. The location is amazing, right across from the beautiful beach with amazing sunsets. Even though all the beaches in Costa Rica are public, no one put a towel down on the beach across from our house besides us the entire trip. The beach is like a waning moon of clean sand nestled inside an ocean cove, flanked by rocky areas you can (safely) explore. The house was clean and spacious enough for all of us. The patio added another level of comfort and relaxation and was filled with people every day. Christian, our concierge, was patient, on time, and helped us out with a ton of logistics and travel necessities. Yvonne, the chef, was the absolute best, respectful and fun, and I wholeheartedly recommend you ask her to prepare fresh fish from the Pacific outside your front door. Ericka took care of the house and was attentive and full of warmth. Jose was also as friendly and courteous as they come and maintained our security and the premises superbly. All of our questions and emails (from 2 different travelers) were promptly replied to and handled with care as well.

One thing you should note about Flamingo and Costa Rica in general, the municipality (water/electricity/sanitation) needs some work. So, if you expect all of those industrialized amenities to work 24/7 with no problems, you are setting yourself up for a negative experience. The water didn't work for a few hours one day, and the toilets gave us a little issue a few times, but neither of those things are the fault of the owner of the home, they stem from underlying needed municipality upgrades. But don't stress it. Shrug, talk your nervous trip companions out of their neurosis, take a dip in the ocean, or the pool, or take a jog on the beach, or sunbathe, or sleep in the hammock, or birdwatch, or go scare the crabs on the rocks near the tide pools, or got to Coco Loco next store and have a cocktail, or call Christian to go hiking or horseback riding or ziplining, or get your group on a Catamaran to snorkel and watch the sunset (shout out to Mateo, Renee, and Bismarck from Manta Ray Sailing), or even just walk to Potrero and watch the Catamarans sail in and out of the bay, do anything but stress about it, because... well... Pura Vida.

Wonderful week in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the flamingo house for a week the end of January with our whole family including 3 couples and 2 singles. We had a fantastic time during our stay! The house is absolutely perfect... everyone had plenty of room and almost everyone had their own bathroom. The pool is the a great place to hang out after the beach. Most of all the location is unbeatable... it is one of the few houses on Flamingo Beach (which is the best beach in the area) so it was very private but also next door to the bar/restaurant Coco Loco so not too secluded. The staff was incredible...Erica cleaned every day and kept everything neat and fresh, Jose was the night guard who cleaned the pool, Christian organized activities for us and translated when needed, and Ivonne was the chef who really made the stay for us. They were all so friendly and although they didn't speak English they were eager and willing to try to learn and communicate. Ivonnes cooking was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. She cooks in the outdoor kitchen and everything she made was authentic and delicious. We couldn't have been more pleased with the overall experience.

Casa Playa Blanca is located on the center of Flamingo Beach and is 1/2 mile easy walk from the town of Flamingo. You can easily stroll along the shore to have breakfast, lunch or dinner or take a two minute drive along the quiet beach road to get your groceries, do your banking, nightlife, or boating excursion. Once in Flamingo, the road is paved and is your gateway to all other Guanacaste adventures. The little 'local' beach town of Brasilito is 5km away with more nice restaurants and is a real 'Tico' village. Tamarindo is 20-30 minutes away and is a busy surf town with lots of shopping, restaurants, bars and nightlife. From the beach, it's a 1 hour drive to the cities of Liberia or Santa Cruz, 1 1/2 hours to Rincon de la Viejo volcano with waterslides, hot mud baths, thermal springs and much more, 2-2 1/2 hours to the Rainforest and 3 1/2 hours to Arenal Volcano. We have very reliable guides we can recommend at your request.
