Flamingo Beach house description
Casa Colibri has a modern contemporary design that fits perfectly into its environment and complements the terrain. Set on the north ridge in Playa Flamingo, this spacious home is framed by the hills behind and gazes over the vast Pacific Ocean and Potrero Bay.
At the entrance next to the carport is a guard house with live, 24 hour live-in security.
As you enter the main level you’ll be greeted by cool porcelain tile floors that lead you through the main living area appointed with comfortable contemporary furnishings, a gourmet kitchen with beautiful granite counter tops and stainless steel appliances and a dining area has a large glass top table that seats six. From there you’ll find a large balcony beyond the walls of glass that open to let in the cool sea breezes. In a quiet corner off the living room is the master bedroom suite with private bath. There is also a separate laundry room with full washer and dryer.
Downstairs you’ll find two more bedrooms, also with private baths, and plenty of closets to store your suitcases, golf clubs, surfboards and other vacation gear. From here you can exit the home and enjoy the covered outdoor entertainment area next to the infinity edge pool. This level has ample lounge furniture, another glass top dining table for 6 and a barbeque area with a large gas grill, sink and refrigerator under the granite counter top bar.
A staircase surrounded by tropical gardens and banana trees leads to a private beach perfect for swimming, snorkeling and exploring.

Great Oceanfront Getaway
Great Oceanfront Getaway
We very much enjoyed Casa Colibri. Though not as nice a view as you can get in other regions of the country due to the dry climate, the view was great. We loved that you can get to a semi-private beach by descending only a few stairs. We didn't mind the stairs at all because we like to get exercise, but if you don't like stairs, keep in mind that it is about the equivalent of 4 flights of stairs to get down to the beach. We prefer having the stairs because it allows a better view at the top. Also, if you don't mind walking on hills (which we don't), you can walk to 5 or more restaurants in town - this was a big plus for us. The beach is shared with 2 other houses, but we rarely saw anyone down there. There are some rocks, so you need to be careful. One person in our group hurt her toe on the rock on the first day while going into the water. Once you've done it a few times, you know the right place to go into the water so that you don't risk hitting a rock. There is a shower near the top of the stairs for rinsing off the dirt and saltwater - perfect! The pool is very nice and has the beautiful view, but is small. We loved the spacious oceanfront balconies and patios on 3 levels, and the grill, sink, and frig on the patio. The bedrooms and bathrooms were very comfortable. The showers in the 2 downstairs bedrooms have a fantastic view of the ocean scenery. There are large, clean windows throughout the house to maximize enjoyment of the views. The house is not as secluded as other places that we have stayed at, as there is another house right next door. There is vegetation between the houses such that you really can't see the people next door, but you can hear them. The access to the pool and patio area is via a door on the bottom floor which, if closed, locks from the inside. Thus, you either need to always bring a key, or risk having the gardener's cat come inside from leaving the door open. The lock on the front door was a bit cumbersome. Overall, it was a great place to stay and we very much enjoyed it.

Manager response: We are so happy you enjoyed your stay, Carolyn! We also enjoyed having you and your group at Casa Colibri. Yes, like parts of California, a gorgeous view can sometimes mean extra steps :), but like you we also feel it is worth it for the amazing views from every floor. And we also are glad that you appreciate the fact that there are very few places where you can take a shower with a full ocean view -- but not worry about anyone looking back at you! We hope you will visit us again when the foliage is still green from the Rainy Season. November is the best time for blue skies and green trees, perhaps we will see you then! Thank you again!

This place was truly amazing, we are a family with 14 yr old and 13yr old. Was so nice to have huge bedrooms for everyone and each with their own ensuite. The furniture and equipment is high end and the views are amazing. Pool is just big enough to hang out in. No huge swimming pool but perfect for a 4 stroke length :-) The steps down to the beach could be challenging for an older couple but for us it was amazing to have your own entrance to the beach shared with a just a few houses, we never saw another person on the beach while we were there. Swam with the stingray right in the bay. The housekeeper lives omn the premises in a small house, still very private for us, she came twice a week and cleaned every inch of the house, moving couches, under chairs etc and even did our washing and folded it. We had a great time, get a 4x4 and drive the monkey trail route, lots of fun and we saw monkeys while deep in the middle of nowhere. Overall area is pretty underdeveloped and was super quiet in August when we went. that made it even better to have flamingo beach to ourselves (2 minutes from the house) we would go back to the same property without hesitation.

My family of four were fortunate enough to stay at this outstanding property. The pictures of the property are lovely but do not do it justice. We could not believe how beautiful the views were from every area of the home. From the living area overlooking the pool and the beach. My teenage daughters loved snorkelling at the private beach. The pool, the outdoor kitchen and entertaining area are fantastic. We had such a wonderful time and the weather was beautiful. This property is walking distance to Mar y Sol restaurant, which is a wonderful place to watch the sunset and have dinner and drinks. It is also within walking distance to many other attractions. When my friends saw my pictures of this property and the area they decided they would love to go here as well. So very soon I will be fortunate enough to be returning to this lovely property and beautiful Costa Rica with my friends for a girls week away. If you have not visited Costa Rica, the you need to and I would highly recommend this beautiful property in the Flamingo Beach area.

We stayed at this home with friends recently and had an amazing holiday. The house was stunning with all the amenities we would ever need and all high end. The pool was the perfect size and overlooking the beautiful ocean where we saw many birds, wildlife and even saw dolphins and turtles swimming in the ocean! The open concept of the home made us feel as if we were outside and the breeze was beautiful and cooling so we did not need to turn on the air con. We were walking distance to Flamingo Beach which is one of the most beautiful beaches we have ever seen. The restaurants and shopping were also very close so we walked everywhere. This place gets a 10 out of 10...we will definately return.
