Overview

Playa Flamingo Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Wake to the sound of waves crashing on the shore just 50 metres away. Eat your breakfast on the balcony while enjoying one of the most coveted views in Flamingo. Return after a day at the beach or an eco tour to enjoy a glass of wine before heading out to one of Flamingo's exquisite restaurants.

If you are looking for quiet time, bring a beach chair down the our secluded beach. If you want a bit more action stroll into Flamingo to eat at one of the many fabulous open-air restaurants, take a short walk to the white sands and clear blue water at Playa Flamingo. Go horseback riding at Playa Conchal or just relax with a massage on the beach. Flamingo is located on the Northwest coast in the heart of Guanacaste, a short drive from the popular surf beach in Tamarindo, the zip lines and a variety of eco tours. Whether you are looking for a peaceful week of sunshine and rest or a combination of sun and eco tours this is the perfect rental.

This is a private condo with access to a pool. It is not part of the Flamingo Marina Resort. It has been recently renovated and redecorated. Two bedrooms. 1 master with queen, private bathroom and private balcony. Spare room with queen-sized bed plus bunk beds.

Please note: The condo has an extra-large railed balcony with a beautiful view, but the rails, as you will see in the pictures, are open. These are not child-proofed. If you have young children, this may not be the ideal condo for you.

About The Owner

Picture taken at Playa Grande (the most incredible sunset location) on my visit in February.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011

Why The Owner chose Guanacaste

I visited Costa Rica earlier this winter and fell in love with it, especially the view.

What makes this condo unique

It is just impossible to feel stressed while you are there. The locals joke that the most stressful part of their day is making sure that they don't miss the sunset. I can't wait to get back myself, but in the meantime I hope you enjoy it!

Great condo, awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family (17 year old daughter and 12 year old son) had an incredible time for our first vacation to Costa Rica. Thanks in no small part to Sonia, Marcos and the Condo. It was perfect for us and made our week together very special. This place has the conveniences of a resort without the crowds. We loved eating meals and spending time together on the balcony and the convenience of the location. We enjoyed having our own rental car and making our own adventures including a quick 1 night trip to Arenal Volcano and National Park. We just cannot say enough good things about this place, Sonia, or the trip!

awesome condo, perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family(wife, 2 kids and mom) stayed in this condo for a week over the easter holidays. What a perfect vacation! The condo is part of a complex that offers the convenience of poolside restaurants and a private beach coupled with the freedom to prepare our own meals if desired. The condo is spacious and very clean with a balcony overlooking beautiful Potrero bay. From the balcony the morning sunrises are spectacular and the afternoon shade offers relief from the sun if desired. The condo is well located with many activities close by. The beautiful Flamingo beach is just a short walk away. For those who like to explore there are many activities close by to enjoy such as sailing, zip lining, snorkelling, ATVing, surfing etc.. Most tour companies will pick you up right from the condo complex. There are also many other beaches in the area to explore. Restaurants are plentiful and the food is excellent. The condo is air conditioned to provide comfort from the heat which is guaranteed as the weather was consistently gorgeous with no clouds and temperatures in the mid to high 30s. Wifi is also included which helped in planning our adventures. I would highly recommend this condo. I am planning on returning myself.

Amazing beach front condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

As much as we don't want to say how wonderful this place was we have to express that is was amazing! The condo is furnished perfectly and a family could easily stay here. As a couple we enjoyed the space and our favorite was the balcony overlooking Portreo Bay. Flamingo beach is a walk away and is more secluded than we expected. There is a charcoal grill on the balcony for grilling a meal. The location is perfect to drive to beaches around Portreo Bay and finding less inhabited beaches south of Tamarindo. The condo is situated in a larger condominium establishment with a refreshing pool and excellent staff. Our only recommendation is to switch out the shower heads to provide better water flow! We will be back with our kids to enjoy this great location!! Escape the allure of an all inclusive and cook breakfast in a fully equipped kitchen!! Thank you for opening up your space! We loved it!!!

Retirement is an Option

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I decided to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary in Costa Rica and we were not disappointed. The Condo overlooks the bay and from sunrise to sunset it is a picturesque sight. The temperatures hit 40 degrees while we were there, but the air conditioners kept the condo a cool place to escape the heat when necessary. The closeness of restaurants to the condo was a plus but I advise visitors to rent a vehicle if you want to see sights...but if your looking for downtime with sun and peace/quiet you can't find anywhere better. We will be going back soon...it was that much fun!!!

A Great Choice

  • 5 of 5

This place was a perfect choice for our Christmas vacation. My hubby and 3 teenage daughters all enjoyed ourselves with plenty of space. I'm glad I opted for a condo as opposed to hotel room(s). We found Sonia's condo to be exactly what we expected upon arrival, just as pictured on the site. It was clean, neat and well stocked in the kitchen area. We had planned on doing some cooking while there and very well could have, but found ourselves out and about for most of the day so we did only breakfast on the lovely patio to start off our day. The beds were comfy, the air worked great, we had plenty of hot water, there were bath and beach towels, an ice chest and the furniture was clean and fresh. The only one problem we ever encountered was with in condo Wi-Fi which was spotty at best, but the solution was just out the door at the bar using their Wi-Fi (while having a lovely cocktail).

Flamingo beach is the middle of 3 small, quaint little beach towns. There is not a whole lot of night life around but plenty to do for adventure during the day. The beach on the VRBO listing picture is a small private beach right out in front of the condo on the resort property. The long, white sand main beach in Flamingo is literally just a few minutes walk from the resort. You can also choose to relax at the resort pool, or venture out to one of the other close, surrounding beaches in the area but you would need some transportation to most of them. Not to worry though, the main beach in Flamingo is all you need!!

As far as the whole rental process goes, it was pretty simple from start to finish. Sonia just so happened to be there the first day when we arrived and Renee at Seaview rentals was just up the street if we needed her for anything. There is a good general list of things to do and places to see and eat in the condo for you to browse.

Close to the condo and without needing any outside transport there are plenty of tours and restaurants to chose from. I however enjoyed the freedom of having a car, especially with teenagers so we could explore more of the surrounding area.

We really enjoyed this simple, "non-Americanized" part of Costa Rica and would definitely recommend this spot for those who are looking for this type of vacation. This place is not for you if you are looking for a wild, crazy "first world" vacation spot...
