Luxury Sunset Villa with Direct Acces to the Flamingo Beach

Space 4,305 sq. ft.
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 7 nights

Overview

About the property

5 bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, sleeps 10

The villa was completely reconstructed in 2011. A new ocean view bedroom and a big covered terrace have been added (still not on the satellite picture of Google maps).

The house is on a rock, 20m above the ocean and has stairs which create a direct access to the famous white sand beach of Flamingo (the real Flamingo beach, also called playa Blanca).

The entire property is very private and protected against prying eyes. Also it is very safe. All buildings are protected by alarm systems and there are cameras mounted all around the property. We never had any problems!

From the terrace one will enjoy wonderful sunsets and if you are a little lucky you can observe wales crossing the bay. One can also enjoy the view from the inside living area. The big European isolated windows keep 99,9% of UV rays outside.

The house also contains a swimming pool, which runs on very little chlorine. Because of the so called “infinity edge” the pool seems as if it is a part of the ocean, making an almost seamless blend between the swimming pool and the water of the ocean, especially when the winds are calm. The pool also has a raised Jacuzzi attached to it, with a waterfall cascading down into the pool, generating a source of calming sound against the thunder of the ocean waves.

The property also contains two double story units, one used as a guestroom. On the wall right next to it, one can sometimes spot the occasional iguana lying in the sun (usually only in the early morning). On the other one a roof access has been built. From there one can enjoy all the beauty that Flamingo has to offer.

The outside terrace also has a big 50+ inch TV, so in the evening (which comes quite early in Costa Rica), one can enjoy such entertainment without being confined to the inside of the house. On the terrace there are also deck chairs for easy sunbathing whenever one feels the need to.

In general, the house is very open. The celling in the living room is around 8 meters high. Almost every room has big windows which can also be used as doors. In this way, one can generate enough airflow to not have to use the AC. This helps with the acclimatization process and will make ones experience of Costa Rica much more enjoyable.

New we did add another bedroom with 2 sleeps in the mainhouse.

This gives advantages to younger children because they can sleep close to their parents.

Why Owner chose Guanacaste

We live in a some extra ordinary properties in Europe and we always where looking for our exaptional place at the pacific.

As it is a long flight time from Europe to Costa Rica only a top of the line property does make sense to us. And we did find it with this villa at Flamingo Beach.

What makes this villa unique

Located directly at the white Flamingo Beach. Private stair down to the beach. Increadable sunsets to be watched from the terrace.

When you are lucky you can watch the wales from the terrace in the bay.

Beautiful Home - Can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

This house was incredible - all amenities, clean and cool, gorgeous views...I could go on and on. The view of the ocean is unlike any other - waking up every morning to the wide expanse of blue sea, hearing the waves crash while sleeping (even with the doors closed), and having a beautiful sunset every single night...this place is really special. The town of Flamingo is a sleepy fishing village with everything you need (banks, rental car, tours) and there are 3 fantastic restaurants (Coco Loco is a must, Marie's and Angelina's). For families: the layout of the house is such that the master is separate from the main house, but only a short walk across the pool patio. Our 5 year old shared a room with her brother and we felt very safe and had no problems. The master is a must - and get a massage with the doors open! We can't wait to go back.

Great beach, great views, great outdoor area, comfortable house

  • 5 of 5

Our family (wife, me, 6 and 2yr old) stayed for a week. The first thing you notice is the great view when you enter the house, your blood pressure should drop! Everything in the main living area and master bedroom is nice and well equipped. The real gem of the house is the access to the beach and the beach itself, yes, it’s a decent amount of steps but you gain privacy. In addition, the winds are lighter than other houses we have rented on the beach; you get better/longer views and additional safety. In addition, the outdoor dining, pool, jacuzzi and seating area was perfect for us. This is what you pay for and you won't be disappointed.

Per the PF area, you have at least 3 restaurants that you can walk too and many more within a 5-minute drive. Same goes for grocery stores and fresh produce market, everything is handy.

The house service was great; Ariel always had a smile and took care of us when we had questions. Yes, you could always improve things but none of it would enhance the “why” you came to Costa Rica.

Rent this house, you will not be disappointed.

Perfect holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this gorgeous home for 3 weeks, first just my husband and me but then relatives and our adult children joined us. The house easily accommodated everyone with so many spacious bedrooms with en suite bathrooms and lots of privacy. The master bedroom is truly spectacular! What a view when you raise the automatic blinds each morning to a perfect sky and wide expanse of ocean! Playa Flamingo is a truly beautiful beach with fine white sand and never crowded. A lovely morning walk. Add in the stairs to the beach and back and you've worked off that first margarita! The property is well appointed and comfortable. The beds were all very comfortable with good linens, something I think can make or break a house rental. The housekeeper was in every second day and took excellent care of us and kept the house spotless! What a bonus for me. There are lots of great restaurants in the area and some excellent live music some evenings. Some are in easy walking distance but a car is essential if you want to venture further, which you should. There are so many activities to try and we enjoyed zip lining and deep sea fishing. That being said, it's pretty hard to drag yourself away from this beautiful property with it's travertine floors and patio, infinity pool and vast outdoor living spaces on a perfect hot sunny day! We will definitely be back!

Amazing House

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 9 have stayed at several beach vacation rentals over the years and all agreed that this is the best house we have ever stayed at. The pictures are gorgeous but still don't do the house justice. The view is breathtaking and the outdoor area is the perfect oasis to enjoy it from. The pool is wonderful. The kitchen has all the amenities we needed (even for the baker among us) and has some added luxuries like a dishwasher and ice maker. There is also a washer/dryer available for your use if you need it. The grill outside was great to have. Plenty of space for indoor or outdoor dining and speakers well placed in the house and outdoors. We never felt the need to leave the house except to walk down the stairs to the beautiful beach. The stairs are a hike but totally worth it to have direct access to the beach while being perched on a hill for the gorgeous views. For those who can't do the stairs, there is a road that takes you to the same beach. The beach is lovely with pure white sand. We enjoyed eating at Coco Loco which is right on the beach in easy walking distance. The bedrooms all have comfortable beds with closet space and nice bathrooms. One thing to note: 2 of the bedrooms are in the main house and the others are in smaller buildings connected to the main house. It was fine for our group of adult couples who liked the privacy, but just something to keep in mind if you are traveling with small children that need to be in the same building as an adult (note there is a library with a pull out couch in the main house as well). The owner is great and super responsive and the house keeper and grounds keeper were both great as well. We had absolutely no complaints about this amazing property.

Dream Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

The house is everything the listing says it is. We were overwhelmed by the beautiful view when we walked into the house. Spacious rooms, luxurious bathrooms, well appointed kitchen and plenty of space to relax. We spent many hours lounging in the infinity pool, on the patio and down at the beach. We cooked most of our dinners because we didn't want to leave the view.

Ariel, the property manager, was awesome. He helped us book several excursions. He even helped arrange in-home massages for all 7 of us. It was wonderful!!! We were spoiled by a daily housekeeper. She was a sweetheart and very efficient.

We would recommend this property to anyone travelling to Costa Rica. It has everything you could ask for....and more.

Outstanding Property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed during Thanksgiving week 2015. The property is outstanding! Our group of 10 was composed of two families of 4, along with the grandparents. We had people ranging in age from 11 to 71. All ages equally loved this property. The bedrooms are quiet and comfortable, and allow for you to "get away" if you need some rest.

Each evening we gathered around the outdoor patio to relax and have a drink, while looking out across the infinity pool into the Pacific Ocean. The daily maid service and gardner made you feel well taken care of. The owner is easy to deal with, and helpful. The house is an ideal set-up for having a private chef, and our favorite was Belly FedBetter.

We would strongly recommend this property, and is perfect for larger groups that want to gather in the common spaces, yet also be able to sneak away to their own casita for relaxation. The stairs allow access to one of the most gorgeous beaches in Costa Rica, while there are many steps...everyone navigated them easily and we considered it our "exercise" of the day. We met the owner, and he has put a lot of thought into the design and layout of this gem of Costa Rica!
