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.

Perfect Wedding!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our objective was to have a beautiful yet peaceful and relaxing destination wedding. After the hours of research on internet and numerous phone calls to those abroad, we finally took a "chance" at the Flamingo Beach Casa Playa Blanca. It could not have went any better, 10 out of 10!!! We had a wedding party of 25 with ages ranging from 18 to 75 and everyone had an absolute blast. Flamingo Beach in comparison to near by areas (Tamarindo), is perfect for those not wanting a "touristy" vacation spot. We had everything we needed in Flamingo Beach yet felt like the beach was ours! The house and pool area were very clean and accommodating to all age ranges. The younger crowd had a great time enjoying the outdoor bar area while the older crowd had plenty of room to comfortably lounge. Estefania (Cook at Casa Playa Blanca) was essentially our wedding planner and helped us with all the details for our big day. She helped select the rehearsal dinner location at Las Brisas (10 out of 10!), bonfire for the wedding reception and countless other little things that we really never thought of. I can't type enough nice things about Estefania on how she was instrumental on making our wedding so memorable. A real joy to be around. She cooked amazing food for us and was always there to help us with whatever we needed (with a smile on her face). Jean Luc from MarySol catered our reception on the beach (just steps away from the house) and did a beautiful job arranging the food and wedding setup - with excellent presentation. Our guests were still raving about his food weeks after the reception! The wedding arch, flower arrangements, seating and tables were 1st class....all arranged by Jean Luc. Jonas (Adventure Tours) was of great help as well. He arranged zip lining, fishing trips and numerous other transportation aids that were used throughout the trip. He understood that it was difficult to juggle 25 people of various interests and he seemed to always make it fun for everyone and was flexible with last minute changes.

In conclusion, this was a very memorable wedding and it was only possible by all the people mentioned - so helpful, accommodating, and just great people to get to know. I honestly couldn't have pictured for our special day to turn out any better! Thank you Mark for sharing such a beautiful property!

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.

Perfect location and staff very accomodating and fun!

  • 5 of 5

We were there 7 days and had a wonderful time. Erica, the housekeeper was great and very attentive and lots of fun. Ivonne, the chef was great and lots of fun. Jose, the night guard was wonderful and took good care of three women. Cristian, our concierge, was the best. He helped us with so many things. The house was wonderful and a very peaceful place to stay for looking out over the Pacific. The view was beautiful and going to sleep listening to the ocean was amazing. Three Texas women enjoyed their stay.

Beautiful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was simply the perfect vacation! The accommodations and location were fantastic along with the owner and all the staff. Once we booked the house, we didn't have to worry about a thing. The owner made sure every detail of the vacation was taken care of. We were greeted at the airport by our driver/tour guide who told us all about his beautiful country on our ~ 1hour drive to the beach house. Once we arrived at the beach house we were greeted by a concierge who gave us all the options for the activities/excursions around the country. I had done my research about the excursion possibilities prior to arriving and I was pleased to find out that the concierge had some better packages and different combination tours available then what I saw offered online. There was a chef who prepared breakfast and dinner all week all the while staying in the outdoor kitchen and out of the way. The housekeeper cleaned everyday making my stay like I was at a hotel. Bathrooms were clean, Bedrooms and living/family room areas were clean and cozy and there was a different air conditioning unit in every room. This was great because in our group we had people that like to sleep when it's really cold, while others like to sleep in more reasonable temperatures. The housekeeper, chef, and night watchmen were all very nice. We were able to do some night swimming and lounge/relax without feeling like our privacy was invaded day or night. The area is very quiet and serene and the sunsets are just spectacular! The pool water was the perfect temperature and the beach was just beautiful. There were days we went in the ocean and toggled between the pool and the ocean because the beach was literally steps away from the house. Directly next door to the house is a small restaurant with some pretty good food and drinks. The restaurant has tables lit up on the beach in the evenings which added to the experience. About a 10 minute walk or 2 minute taxi ride from the beach house, there is a little town that has some shops including a gift shop, a few miscellaneous stores, a couple of restaurants and a small grocery store which was convenient. This house could be perfect for any group/occasion whether it be a bunch of friends, or couples, or even a family vacation. The setup of the house allows for privacy when wanted, and also makes a great setting for hanging out all at the same time.

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.
