Recent Flamingo Beach reviews

  • Quiet and peacefull

    "Pro’s: The house sits on a beautiful and peaceful piece of beach. On average I’d say there were no more than 20 other people walking/playing on the 3 miles of coast. The ocean is warm, waves were perfect for a 4 year old and the undertow was light. Boogie boarding was a daily ritual. The pool was engineered perfectly, shallow part for kids, deep portion for adults and a nice sitting area in the other corner. Weather was consistent, ~95, ~75 no clouds. Thank goodness for the new AC and fridge. The house sits perfectly on the plot. The house was clean and Thomas / Janet were always there by 9am to tend to other matters. Joan, Dervin and G were accommodating and great to work with. They had the screen doors repaired and lubed as they didn’t move well. Neutral: The house has a security system and a local nightly security guard. I appreciate safety but at the same time it made some of us uneasy. The security system is loud! No shortage of little bugs and ants. They don’t bite but you’ll find them in the kitchen and we would find ants crushed in the bed with us. You’ll hear critters running on the roof in the AM - the roofline and walls are sealed very well, no worries. Con’s: The house is showing its age. It’s built very well, just needs a good craftsman to give it a once over. Our bedroom had some paint bubbling off the walls, some doors are warped and really loud, the shelving system in two of the bedrooms were pulled off the wall. We found 2 cockroaches, 1 in our bedroom and 1 in the common bathroom that we quickly killed. The dishwasher was serviced 4 times and never worked properly. The lounge chair brackets were rusted or broken on two of four. The umbrella could only be used about 5% of the time because it was flimsy – it flew out one day and needed to be repaired by Thomas. The wi-fi had difficulty connecting with our Apple devices. Weirdly enough, the one Android phone and Windows computer connected without issues the entire trip. The 4 iPads and 5 iPhones only had wi-fi for ½ the trip. Overall, it was a quiet and fun house to visit – you rent it for the great pool, good ocean view, laid back local establishments and relaxing area. When I have time I will add notes to my trip advisor page."

  • A Week in Paradise

    "My family of 4 spent a week at the Palms in Keith's Villa in March, 2015. Having been there earlier and having stayed at another not so great villa in the same complex, we were a bit apprehensive about the quality of the villa. Fear not. This Villa is a true gem, decorated tastefully with international art and crafts. The linens and towels are of top quality. The owner is a true host, not just someone you rent from. He took great care of us, and addressed any possible concerns (such as a complicated but working coffeemaker, replaced immediately). Every villa is individually owned, and you are at the mercy of the owner's tastes and budget. Keith goes the extra mile to make sure you have a great vacation at Playa Flamingo. We arranged for a private tour of the Palo Verde National Park with Eco Travel. It is cheaper and better than going through the options given at the Residence Club. Our guide Carlos was wonderfully knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Highly recommended. Playa Flamingo is probably the best beach in Costa Rica. We will return to this villa soon. Thank you Keith!"

  • GREAT PLACE MUST STAY

    "Was there in October 2014. Everything was wonderful from the accommodations to the sunset and views. Truly all you need to bring is cloths personal items, and on your way in from the airport pick up what you want for meals. Everything is there to cook with and sit back and enjoy the sunsets with your dinner on the patio. Lots to do during the day close to here and the beaches are just sooo relaxing. Don't forget to use the pool it put relaxation to a new level."

  • awesome time

    "This was an absolute fantastic vacation. The villa was magnificent. The pictures do not do it justice. It is everything that is stated. The pool is huge with the swim-up an added plus. Watching the night time thundershowers in the tower is one of our best times. The howler monkeys were in the trees and did not let us down. We had a great time zip-lining and 4 wheeling, Victor is a great guide."
