This stunning beachfront condo will take your breath away. Sit on your patio and look out at your private secluded beach. While sipping your morning coffee you will see an amazing array of birds including flocks of parrots and bright busy hummingbirds. The iguanas are very tame and will eat papaya from your hand. You will not see crowded beaches, and the only noise you will hear is the calm rhythmic surf as you drift off to sleep.
After a wonderful day of rest you will be ready to see the night life and it is only steps away. There are two casinos within an easy walk and several places for dinner and dancing .Our condo is located in the famous Flamingo Marina Hotel and affords you all the amenities at no additional charge. Chose among 5 beautifully landscaped pools with waterfalls and swim up bars. The Monkey Bar is a famous local bar that overlooks the fabulous Flamingo Marina.
Sit and sip those wonderful margaritas while watching the boats and sailboats come to harbor. Dinner is available and wonderful The Flamingo Marina Hotel is famous for their chef and the fish is always fresh! Maybe after dinner in the cool of the evening catch a game of tennis on the lighted courts or take a quick plunge in the hot tub.
Local sightseeing is a must and you will have a difficult time chosing between all that Costa Rica has to offer. The leatherneck turtles come ashore to lay their egs and regulated tours are available to see this amazing sight which can only be witnessed a few places in the world. If you are more athletic the Canopy Tours will be your choice as you zip line thru the very tops of ancient trees and see the wonderful families of Howler Monkeys. Prehaps you will see Arenal Volcano erupt, as we did, while sitting at the base of the volcano having dinner.
This is a sight to behold. Maybe you are a fisherman? I have stood in schools of fish so deep that I couldn’t see the clear ocean floor, and pulled in snapper as fast as I could put in a line. Costa Rica boast to have some of the best fishing in the world and boats are easily available at the marina situated out the condo front door. So much diversity exist in Costa Rica that it becomes magical to all who visit.
Your condo has two unbelievable views. The front stand s at the edge of Flamingo Marina which will be upgraded to world class in a couple of years. The back view is your own secluded private beach and nothing stands between you and the sandy beach except the park like landscaped grounds. Sit in your lounge chair and watch the sailboats come into the marina,or see the dive boats pick up divers and fishermen on your beach.
The master suite has a big new king size bed and luxurious custom furniture and your own entrance that opens to the patio and beach. Private bath of course. The 2nd bedroom is accommodating for children or couples as the twin beds can pull apart for children, yet can easily be pushed together for a couple .Large second bath is fully equipped.
The condo is completely updated and has cable TV,DVD, and CD player. Internet is provided. An unusual feature of this condo is you can drive to the condo front door and have no steps to deal with. Easy to unpack and park right in front. Parking and security provided at no charge. Maid service is available. Kitchen is fully equipped and washer and dryer are provided in the condo.
Simply stated this is paradise and life gets no better than this!!

Owner purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Owner chose Playa Flamingo
You cannot imagine sunset on our Terrace! The sun sinks slowly behind the few clouds.The must be put there just for our pleasure.They turn colors that will take your breath away. As we sit ,and finish the day with a glass of wine,we know that we have a place in the world that is unique and peaceful.The folks we have meet are some of the kindest, friendliest people.It becomes normal to ask a stranger, what brought you here? We all want to know each others unusual story.How did you find this place? Its a place, where I have witnessed people buy property on their first visit, pack up from the US and never look back.Its that kind of place.We are fairly cautious folks, so it took as a while to actually select a home here. We traveled and searched for quite a while. Russ and I are picky! I believe what finally convinced us, besides the obvious ...whales..the fishing..THE MONKEYS in our back yard..the list goes on for ever..but the final thing that drew us in,simply the kindness of the people and the overwhelming beauty of nature.Be at peace when you come to our home.You have truly arrived in natures paradise!
What makes this Condo unique
Since it is a ground level, it is especially great for young children. They can run out the patio right onto the condo grounds. Parents can easily watch them and they have access to a small almost private beach not 50 yards from the patio.

5th time to Costa Rica & first time at Playa Flamingo & we will return. You cannot beat the location of the condo, it truly is 20 steps to a private beach or 8 minute walk to the large gorgeous beach of Playa Flamingo. We spent hours there body surfing on the waves and get a massage for $30!
Condo was basic, but Russell the owner and Willie the property manager bent over backwards to accommodate all our needs.
Highly recommend reaching out to Willie to contact his friend Galo to take you out on his boat (very reasonable). He pulls up to the private beach & we jumped on the boat. Spent a day fishing and snorkeling while Galo dove down and collected lobster, clams and oysters for us to enjoy later. Highlight for sure on the trip.
Condo could use a few minor updates, screen doors and curtains on front bathroom would be good.
The location of this property is perfect!! We rented a golf cart for half of our stay to go Out of Flamingo for groceries and Conchal beach (a must do). Everything in Flamingo is in walking distance, loved Flamingo beach!! The condo itself could use a few fixes. I would totally stay here again, the beds are the most comfortable beds ever, and location is amazing!! Willie, the manager of the property was very helpful, he got us the information for a ride from the airport, who in turn was the guy we used for our outings while there, his name is Marvin and I highly recommend him!! We can not wait to visit again😀�
Location right on the beach, great for kids
My family of 5 (3 kids ages 4-8) stayed here for a week & loved it. The condo had everything we needed ( maybe a few more towels would be awesome for a big family with kids constantly swimming- but there is laundry machine in the unit) it is right on the beach with fun tide pools full of sea stars, fish & more. The big beach (flamingo beach) & swimming pools are a quick walk away. 3-5 restaurants & drugstore , and grocery within walking distance. Flamingo beach is beautiful & so easy to get around- rent a golf cart or car or taxis- friendly people, very relaxing family vacation - we didn’t even do any tours just stayed in the area & loved it - but there are plenty of tour opportunities here too. We found the kitchen well stocked for family cooking - we ate most meals in - the best grocery store is down the hill across the bridge. Will be back !
We had a fabulous time in Playa Flamingo. The location of the condo is perfect. Super quiet, beautiful and restful. You cannot beat the view. There is access to a private little beach and then 5 minutes to the larger super beautiful beach. We sat outside and had coffee every morning watching the water and the boats go out. The condo owner was super helpful with suggestions on where to eat and shop. We Loved it!!
This condo had a really nice location. The private beach was perfect, and other near by beaches were nice too. The condo it self was ok. The kitchen I believe was newly re-done, so new the new dishwasher was not hooked up, so we could not even us it. It does need more dishes and pots and pans. If you were really going to do some family cooking, I don't think there was enough supplies. We just ate breakfast, so we were ok. The couch needs to be replaced, faux leather had cracks in it. There are no beach supplies (chairs, cooler, sand toys), did have old beach towels. I was told there would be a hair dryer, and there was not. This did not make me happy, because I didn't bring one from home. The second bathroom also needs curtains, you can see right into the shower from the walkway outside the front door. Didn't use the pool on the property, didn't look like much and the Monkey Bar was closed. The bed were nice, with firm mattresses, but the sheets were old and could use some up dating. I had asked if the two twins beds could be up together to make a king bed. I was told I could do it. Didn't really like that answer. When I got there sure enough, two twin beds, was too much work to put together so we didn't. There was no real communication on check in and check out procedures. Got if figured out, but really should be better communicated. We had a nice time. The view was great and beach was really nice, so in the end we had a nice time.
Wonderful Beach Vacation
We have just returned from our visit to Costa Rica which included 6 nights at Playa Flamingo. The location of the condo is great with a beach right in front and just a few minutes walk to Playa Flamingo. These beaches were wonderful but for variety, within a short drive we also explored the beaches at Conchal, Danta and Dantita. The condo is well equipped and has amazing beds. The view to the ocean and boats is great right from the patio and our grandson was intrigued by the boats, birds and iguanas he could see from there! Russell was great to deal with and happy to answer all questions and give suggestions. In Costa Rica, we were met by Willie who welcomed us and was just a phone call away to help out while we were there. A grocery store is nearby and there are great restaurants just a short walk down the road.
volcanos, zipline canopy tours, leatherneck turtle nesting site, howler monkeys and amazing wildlife
