About Dr. Igor Svoboda

Dr. Igor Svoboda - retired Veterinarian and Tom Graydon - retired Criminologist & Realtor - have one thing in common: An intense LOVE of nature and all of God's creatures - especially things tropical!

We have always been surrounded by pets and plants, mountains and water, so it was only natural for us to gravitate to this beautiful little corner of Paradise...

Dr. Igor Svoboda purchased this villa in 1989

Why Dr. Igor Svoboda chose Playa Flamingo

After travelling extensively through many countries of the world, we came to Costa Rica for the first time 30 years ago and instantly fell in love with the nature, people, flora and fauna of this gentle country. Almost 30 years ago (1989) we purchased a very large natural preserve nestled above the Pacific ocean in a very sleepy, quiet community of Flamingo Beach in the Pacific North-Western province of Guanacaste. We never looked back - never regretted this decision. In fact, we started by building our first house. Then a guest house, followed by a pool. Before we knew it, we had designed and built a unique complex of beautiful Villas with 2 large pools - all built with the highest regard for their tropical surroundings and natural setting. From every window or terrace, one can appreciate the magic of Nature. It has been very rewarding personally for us to create this unique little corner of Paradise!

What makes this villa unique

Flamingo Beach is often referred to as the Monte Carlo of Costa Rica's 'Gold Coast' !

Balmy tropical breezes and ionized air coming off the Pacific Ocean are wonderfully healing... The health benefits are astounding!

Come relax in this healing cradle and rejuvenate yourself!

Enjoy spectacular vistas that will re-energize your spirits!

Join with other international travellers who have found a true sense of peace in this tranquil, gentle land!

Beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

Very friendly hosts, on site to answer any questions or give suggestions for local restaurants, bars and excursions.

High on a hill overlooking beautiful shoreline, islands, boats and ocean.

A couple blocks from beautiful uncrowded beaches and nice bars/ restaurants.

A bit of a hill to climb to get to the facility, renting a local golf cart would make the trek easier.

The water is clean and good to drink anywhere is Costa Rica.

Fruit stands everywhere with safe to eat fruit available.

On the warm/dry side of Costa Rica, bring your sunscreen!

Simply Delightful !!!

  • 5 of 5

Lush tropical vegetation complimented by songs of various species of birds - and the wildlife was astonishing! Stunning sunsets to challenge any photographer or painter! Views of lovely gardens, palms, hills and valleys and the Pacific Ocean were just a glance away from our comfortable, private and secure accommodations!

Tropical woods and natural building materials added to the overall ambience of the property, which is located on a hillside only moments from the nearest beaches, restaurants, supermarkets and shops. This was our second visit and we continue to love the location and the quiet comfort. Hosts Tom and Igor are always available with suggestions for great restaurants or arranging sightseeing trips, thus adding that extra spice to our holiday experiences! (One evening at a restaurant on the beach we witnessed a Leatherback turtle laying her eggs on the sand near our table!) We watched monkeys and exotic birds, whale watched from a terrace and just vegged out.

The property itself was close to a huge number of activities offered in the area, yet removed enough from the hustle and bustle to allow us the quiet, secure vacation that we were seeking. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: WOW! So happy to have had you here once again! After a busy season, we were finally able to kick back a bit and enjoy the St.Partick's Day celebrations (and celebrators!) at Marie's Restaurant last evening. There is always something to celebrate here in our little corner of Paradise. Please come back again and treat yourself to lots more fun experiences... Perhaps by your next visit, the Flamingo Marina will be on its way to completion, offering even more things to do here!! COSTA RICA: NO ARTIFICIAL INGREDIENTS Pura Vida!

Playa Flamingo Rest and Relaxation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I recently spent a few days at Casa Loma in Playa Flamingo. Having never been to Costa Rica we conducted a lot of research trying to find a villa where we would find peace and rest with plenty of sunshine after a month of a nasty Winter. We have rented villas for over twenty five years in several countries and have learned to know what we like. First we want a first rate location close by the main reasons for being in the place to begin with. If we are in the South of France we want to be near the museums and the beach. In Costa Rica we wanted a good beach nearby, we got that. Costa Rica beaches can be wild, brown sand beaches with rip tides not what we were looking for at all so our research put a calm white sand beach near the top of the list. Casa Loma has that just a few minutes away.

We wanted a pool so we wouldn't be forced to leave the property every time we wanted to take a dip. Casa Loma has to big beautiful pools from which to choose. We were looking for quiet in the villa where we could be together and sun, read, cook, eat and sleep without road noise and bright lights. We got all of that in Casa Loma. Maybe the most important thing we were looking for was a real villa experience not just some 2 bedroom condo built in the big building boom of the past decade. Our perspective was if we wanted Florida we would go to Florida we were looking for the kinds of villas we rent on the French Riviera but with a Central American sensibility. We got that at Casa Loma. The view from the acreage looks very similar to many we have seen from places like Nice or Villefranche looking over to Cap Ferat.

The owners of Villa Loma live on the property and are very nice people and will help you out with anything you might need to deal with while there. We will very likely revisit in the future which is our best endorsement.

Owner's Response: Hola Michael and Virginia ! Kind thanks for your glowing endorsement of our property! We always appreciate it when our guests recognize the results of our efforts to create a warm and inviting environment. We are indeed fortunate to be so well situated in Costa Rica's Gold Coast. The views, the weather, the facilities of the area leave little more to be desired. A short drive away are mountains, wet and dry forest preserves, wilderness parks, volcanos, lakes and rivers as well as endless possibilities for adventure excursions or laid back hammock and beach relaxation. There is so much to see and do here in the area. Nature is just a glance away. The beaches each have their own special and distinct "character"... As we say, do it all - or nothing at all ! The choices are seemingly endless. As you discovered, VILLAS CASA LOMA is the product of many months and years of planning, designing and developing. Our philosophy continues to be to offer our guests a quiet, comfortable and spacious place suitable for active families as well as for those who prefer quiet contemplation and reflection. Once again we thank you for your kind words and observations. We sincerely look forward to the opportunity of hosting you both again one day soon. Be well and travel safely ! PURA VIDA. Tom and Igor

After spending a restful night, lulled to sleep by gentle surf sounds. Mornings bring gentle sounds of birds and beguiling scents of tropical flowers. Begin your adventurous day with a cup of excellent Costa Rican coffee on your own private terrace or balcony, watching the wide variety of birds starting their day, too... Perhaps move on to a plate of delicious local tropical fruits and maybe even a selection of memorable baked goodies from one of our local bakeries as you plan your day while enjoying the overpowering scent of frangipani (plumeria) flowers!
