This breathtaking beach front estate is truly one-of-a kind. Casa Playa Bonita or "home on the pretty beach" was given its name by our two sons. It is the only home directly on Flamingo Beach to sleep 14 people. This newly completed luxury home is 5,500 square feet. It has 5 bedroom suites, each with a private bathroom, making this home a perfect place for entertaining and accommodating multiple families. Each suite has a view of the beach and opens to the outdoor courtyard area and pool. The outdoor courtyard is made up of a large tiled area for lounging and a pool that accommodates all ages and activities. The shallow shelf pool is perfect for floating and sunning in the water or for little ones to play. The main pool is great for swimming laps, water aerobics, or just playing around. The enormous Jacuzzi has lots of seating including lounge seats for the ultimate foot or neck massage as you overlook the beach. Casa Playa Bonita consists of 2 wings. The main wing is made up of 2 bedroom suites (a king bed with pull-out sofa and a queen bed with pull-out sofa), a gourmet kitchen, living room/dining room, private bathroom, maid's quarters, laundry facility with 2 washers and dryers, an outdoor grilling area and poolside bathroom. The second wing consists of 3 bedroom suites (2 queen beds and 2 twin beds). One of the queen bedrooms and the twin bedroom have an optional adjoining feature to provide flexibility for families with children. If you don’t want to venture too far from the property, our home will provide you with the ultimate place to rest and relax in the lap of luxury. The home is constructed with custom finishes and furnishings and incorporates the beautiful wood and stone of Costa Rica with elegant style and design. Additionally, we are extremely fortunate to have an amazing couple who work to take care of our home. Herman and Blanca are a married couple that tend to the home. They speak only Spanish but Blanca has been working on her English skills and we seem to understand each other pretty well without a translator. Herman and Blanca come daily and will make sure the home is in top notch shape during your visit. Our home is nestled in a beautiful setting of trees where Howler monkeys come to play. We often see families of them in the trees as we play in the pool. Our children eat mangoes from the trees and have picked grapefruit and oranges from other trees on the property when in season. We delight in having the mix of Costa Rican vegetation AND beach front property. You'll love it!!

About the owner: We live in Colorado. Pete is in the real estate business so we travel all over the world but our favorite place to spend our vacation time is at our personal home in Costa Rica. Our sons have been going there since they were infants and are just getting to the age where they can bring their friends down to share some of their favorite adventures. Since we've been going to Costa Rica as a family for over 11 years, we have made many incredible memories both on and off the beach. We love to fish, to zip line, to ride ATVs, to snorkel, to boogie board, to surf, and to just sit and watch the beautiful sunset from our porch. Additionally, we have made some wonderful friendships by being in the same community for as long as we have. We know you will have an amazing experience enjoying our home and all that the surrounding area has to offer. We look forward to hearing about your trip!!
Why the Owner Chose Flamingo Beach: Our family started going to Costa Rica about 15 years ago. Pete's parents traveled the country looking for a place to retire. They fell in love with the community of Flamingo Beach and rented an apartment. They encouraged us to visit. We brought our two young sons at the time and fell in love with the community and the beach. We bought our home on the beach shortly thereafter and have had our home for 11 years. Flamingo Beach is one of the most beautiful white sand beaches we've been to in Costa Rica. Every day brings a new adventure. We love being able to walk to restaurants or to the grocery. We've taken classes at the Spanish school just down the road. We've gotten to know store owners and many people in the community.
The Unique Benefits at this House: When we are at home we have lots of favorite activities. We start our morning by having coffee on our front patio looking onto the beach. We love watching the fishing boats that leave early in the day. We spend most of the day going back and forth from the pool to the beach, boogie boarding, body surfing, and building sand castles. We also enjoy taking walks on the beach, playing smash ball or badminton, and collecting hermit crabs. When we take a break from the outdoors, we love doing puzzles and playing games in the living room as we look out onto the ocean. Late in the afternoon, we love to prepare dinner while watching the sunset over the water and we occasionally build fires and make smores on the beach at night. At last, the sound of the ocean waves lulls us to sleep. Our home is ideally located. We are within walking distance to several good restaurants, shops, a grocery store, a pharmacy, tour guide companies, a marina for a sunset cruise or fishing trip as well as the CPI Language school. In 30 minutes or less you can travel to Tamarindo to surf, to Playa Conchal (in Brasillito) to snorkel, golf, and do water sports, or go to the Monkey Trail to do a canopy (zipline) tour.
