Recent Flamingo Beach reviews
Beautiful Home, Great Location, Amazing Views. We're ready to come back!
"It's my final morning here. We are about to pack up and leave, and I already miss the house. The house is beautifully located on a hillside above the beach. It's about 1/4 mile walk to the beach, but you can still hear every wave crashing and see the water from every front window. Ana Marie deserves a raise, as she was here every single day cleaning, doing our laundry, and making the place look and smell cleaner then before. Ernesto washed our rental car for us and was diligently working in the yard all day everyday. Raking, watering plants, sweeping, and keeping the property and pool in tip top shape! The huge front porch, and gazebo were great for eating out, bird watching, or just relaxing and listening to the ocean and monkeys down below. The Rouku was great when it wasn't trying to load. Mic had it set up for our local television. We were watching a tornado and storms hit an area close to home as we were sitting in CR enjoying our beautiful weather. The dogs were the best part about this house. There are 4 dogs living on the property, although we only got to meet Rusty once (he was tied up at Ernesto's house the entire time we were at the home except for one morning when he must have broke away), he was my favorite. We spoiled Kanga, Jack and Sky with dog treats we bought at the store, attention, a walk to the beach, and letting them sleep in the air conditioned bedrooms most of the time we were there. Every time we come to Costa Rica we like to stay in a different area, but those dogs make us want to come to Villa Bueno Vista next time we come back. I have a feeling they are going to miss how much we spoiled them. The house is in close proximity to very nice grocery stores, 2 banks, lots of restaurants (Sol Y Mar being the best and cheapest), and lots of beaches. There isn't really anything bad I can say about our 8 nights we stayed here."

"We went for a girls trip for our 40th birthday. Alex, Mae, and the rest of the staff were more than accommodating. We had one problem with the second bedroom's air conditioning. We notified the staff and they quickly had someone come and look at it. It was not something they could fix, so theyimmediately notified the owner, Keith. Keith came by to see us personally and had it replaced.
Things happen in homes, and Keith's response was nothing less than stellar! We would absolutely stay again. Five days was not enough!! Thank You playa flamingo for your hospitality. We always felt safe and taken care of!! Pura Vida!"

"We spent 9 glorious days in Costa Rica at El Destino...and what a destination it was! When we saw the condo from a distance as we were driving by our daughter said "Wow...look at that house!" Imagine her delight when I told her that was our home for the next week! We had 2 families totaling 9 houseguests and had more than enough room! Needless to say, the house was well prepared with directions to local attractions, eateries and shopping as well as fully stocked with anything you would need! We enjoyed snorkeling and kayaking in our front yard, swimming in our private pool, walking to restaurants and eating dinners on the porch as the sun set! I would highly recommend this Penthouse to anyone looking for a beautiful, tranquil, clean and safe place to stay while you explore Costa Rica!"

"Our family of four had a great stay at this property. Loved the proximity to beautiful Playa Flamingo, and ability to walk to restaurants and bars. Spectacular view of the beach from two patios, and easy access to pool and rancho (bbq area) - great for younger kids. Note that Flamingo is a hilly place - so beach is down a set of steep steps. We always walked it, but if anyone has difficulty, can easily drive them down in one minute (seriously) and there seemed to be plenty of parking. Felt secure with gated access and friendly guards. Short drive to other great beaches (Conchal, Penca, more), as well as farm stands, fish vendors, and markets. Really well stocked kitchen made cooking easy, and owner provided plenty of bath towels, beach towels, and even beach toys. Although couch and bed spreads make it a little dated, would definitely recommend this to others."
