  • Magnificent sunsets

    "We traveled with a group of 11, ages 4 through 76. We had plenty of space and comfortable sleeping arrangements. Erika the maid arrived daily at around 8 and cleaned all the rooms and did some laundry. A nightwatchman was there from 6pm until 6am. He maintained the garden, cleaned the pool and hung around the pool deck while we slept. They were both pleasant but spoke no English. The outdoor kitchen and pool deck was our living room for the week, from sun up sun down. We paid $350 for a cook, Andreas. She prepared a great guacamole and salsa for hungry travelers, and had already grocery shopped for the first day's dinner. We sent a menu ideas for the first few days via email, based on the menu available on the beach house website, but this may have been too much detail. Two of us sat with her Sunday morning to develop the menu for the week. She spoke a little English but communication was challenging, and she asked us to be very specific about menu and timing, but offered little guidance. Two of us accompanied her on the one grocery store trip near Tamarindo (we took a taxi). We probably could not have found everything we needed without her! She made some nice meals but I think if we could have communicated more easily, we may have hit upon more of her specialties. The breakfast on the last day, huevos rancheros, was delicious. We have never had someone cook for us and it was a wonderful luxury. Consider suggesting a daily menu of tried and true meals for groups that are the house chef's specialty, and just letting us decide if we want it. Coco Loco bar and restaurant is literally right next door. Tasty drinks, music and a way to meet new people. We could leave the teens at the house to watch the smaller kids while the parents had a a happy hour cocktail - we could see them on the deck from our bar stools! It was about a 10 minute walk to the Flamingo Beach plaza with Marie's restaurant, an ice cream stand, souvenirs, tour operator and convenience store (this is where we shopped for beer). A car is not necessary at this property but I missed having one. There were many spots a few miles up the road, the beach house restaurant to the Shack to a fruit stand, we would have liked to explore. There were no bike rentals so this wasn't an option. A few beat up taxi's hang out outside Maries, but they get expensive since once they take you somewhere, they need to wait for you to finish to bring you home."

  • Wonderful place!

    "We stayed in Playa Flamingo for 7 days with 17 family members and wrapped up our trip at El Destino for the last 3 days with only 7 of us. We had 4 adults, 2 toddlers and an infant and this condo was perfect. It was huge and very child friendly. The owners have stocked it with everything you'll ever need and the staff are friendly and very helpful. It is within walking distance of several great restaurants and a grocery store. Chris was extremely helpful and provided us with a recommendation list that was spot on. I can't say enough positive things about this place! We will be back!"

  • Everything we wanted and more!

    "Right from the start this place exceeded our expectations. Kalli was amazing to deal with and very helpful in ensuring all of our questions were answered. We arrived at the condo very late and when we woke up in the morning the location took our breath away. The beach and ocean in front of the condo was much better than the pictures showed. The condo was beautiful, clean and everything we wanted was there. Kalli's information book in the condo and the information she sent prior to our trip was perfect. The sunsets from the deck with a glass of wine in the evening were spectacular after a long day of adventures. The Shack, the Beach House and Coco Loco's are must go to places for food. Everyone in our group are foodies and we were not disappointed with either place. We initially rented bikes and then upgraded to golf cart as it was to hot for us to bike everywhere. The golf cart was a perfect way to experience the local area, we even made a couple very long trips to Tamarindo :) Our next trip we will rent a vehicle to get inland a bit more but would def. recommend the golf cart to travel locally. If you are a diver I would highly recommend the Aqua Centre in Flamingo. Sailing on the Panache (first class), Surfing in Playa Grande. This was our first trip to Costa Rica and will not be our last. We are already discussing our return trip and planning to spend a month as we found 16 days was not enough time to see this beautiful country. Again thank you Kalli for this wonderful place and we returning to the House of Summer sand in the very near future."

  • Descanso Perfecto

    "Quiero agradecer a Jeff y las personas que se encargaron de atendernos en nuestra estancia. Se preocuparon de que pasaramos lindas vacaciones , la casa es muy linda ,comoda y se encuentra en muy buenas condiciones. Mis hijos disfrutaron como locos la pisicna , la playa. La vista desde la sala o la cocina de los atardeceres y simplemente escuchar como rompen las olas y sentir la brisa del mar fue maravilloso. Muchas gracias a Todos y nuevamente volveriamos la pasamos genial."
