Casa Mimosa is unique location situated on a private cul-de-sac, yet only a short 3 minute stroll to the incredible white sandy beach of Flamingo and the warm waters of the Pacific Ocean.

Beautifully appointed with attention to details, this home promises to be the vacation spot to deliver peace, tranquility and privacy.

Built in 2007, Casa Mimosa has only three villas nested into the side of a hill. The views from the Buena Vista Villa terrace are splendid and unique, looking over the forest created by the estuary and the beautiful hills of Potrero. Relax to the gentle sound of the surf breaking on Flamingo beach just a short distance away. Quiet and tranquil, a family or group of friends will have plenty of room and just enough privacy.

The Buena Vista Villa has 3 bedrooms/3 baths, gourmet kitchen, great room, and furnished veranda from which to enjoy the incredible view and sunsets and the cool evenings.

Away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, Casa Mimosa is tastefully furnished and fully equipped for your visit. Casa Mimosa is a place to kick back and relax - whether it be cooking in the fully outfitted kitchen, lounging in the adjoining great room while catching up on the news, reading a good book on the terrace, or taking a quick dip in the pool.

Casa Mimosa is a new home. This villa sleeps six to eight people very comfortably..

About Sid & Dawn Scott

We are an English speaking couple originally from the US and England who have traveled extensively and chose Costa Rica as our home. Since arriving in Costa Rica our passion has been to help the poor people to take care of their dogs and cats. We provide low cost/no cost spay/neuter surgery, flea/tick medication, help treat mild ailments, deliver low cost food and general education on caring for their pets. Some parts of Costa Rica have so many dogs suffering from sickness and malnutrition that it is a heart break, but not near Flamingo.

Sid & Dawn Scott purchased this villa in 2007

Why Sid & Dawn Scott chose Playa Flamingo

We travelled extensively though Costa Rica on our vacations and continually came back to Flamingo. It is a nice small up scale community on a magnificent white sand beach with gentle waves. With the estuary running along most of the beach it is not crowded by over development and it never will be. The sun shines almost every day, even in the rainy season. It is so nice to wake up to warm air and a lovely sunny day. During the rain, it is a good time for a nap or to catch up on email when the rains usually come in the afternoon.

When we found this lot with easy access to the beach, which is unusual in Flamingo, our fate was sealed. That is when we knew we were here for the long haul and built Casa Mimosa.

What makes this villa unique

The peace and tranquility of the scenic outlook and the proximity to the beach and ocean. Many homes and hotels in Flamingo are located high on the hills and are a considerable hike or short drive to the beach. We are a very short easy walk to the beach.

Our family stay at Casa Mimosa

  • 5 of 5

Our choice to stay here for our beach time in Costa Rica was one of the very best parts about our vacation. We were a family of 9 visiting CR for the very first time. We had our children and grandchildren ages 11, 14 and 16 with us. This villa was amazing. When we walked in it really took our breath away. The grounds are gorgeous with trees and flowers and very private. We rented the 2 villas so we had the entire place to ourselves. Our kids loved the pool. It was very clean and the owners went out of their way to ensure we had a wonderful stay. We were only there 3 days and wished we had planned a longer stay. Their maid, on property, cooked a meal for us that was the best meal we had our entire vacation. We had caught grouper out fishing so she prepared it plus appetizers and an entire meal. It was perfect. We bought a few groceries prior to our arrival so we were able to have breakfast and lunches there. It was a very short walk down to the beach. We ate two dinners at Coco Loco restaurant right there on the beach. We didn't have a car but a private driver which we didn't need until we left for the rainforest. I had read the beach was a white sand beach. We are from Florida and agreed the beach wasn't white but beige. Oh well. And the surf was quite a bit more than we expected but everyone still got in after deciding it wasn't dangerous. You can rent either the first level or the second but we rented both since there were 9 of us so we could spread out. Couldn't have been better.

Pura Vida Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best vacation house I've ever stayed at. Big, beautiful floor plan, private pool, and GREAT landlord. Every question I asked was answered almost immediately. They even allowed us to have the entire destination wedding party at the house. (They wanted to come down and join the fun but were afraid of intruding lol.) Of the 21 people who joined us at this house, every single one of them plan on coming back and renting this house again! Very affordable, clean, and safe. Can't wait to go back!

Great location, Great views! So close to the water!

  • 5 of 5

We have been to Costa Rica three times, and this is our second time on Flamingo.

The value for money at Casa Mimosa is unreal!

You are perched up above the canopy with a beautiful jungle view, yet a 1 minute stroll down the path lands you on one of Guanacaste's finest beaches! It is truly the best of both worlds!


- location is very hard to beat! At the end of Flamingo Beach, secluded, yet very close to the beach.

- pool on the property is clean, nice size and water is comfortable temperature

- the Casa itself is spacious, well appointed with lots of kitchen utensils and appliances. The water is safe to drink - makes it so easy! The outdoor patio is big and very comfortable!

- the maid service (daily!) is great! Keeps the place tidy and enjoyable.

- some local connections to help with some tours - we booked a deep sea fishing excursion with the help of Sid.

- THE VIEW: The Casa is above the canopy and the wildlife is abundant! We saw numerous birds, Howler Monkeys about 15 feet from us - a total of 10-12 were having a party one morning! We got to watch them up close and howl with them!


- it is definitely meant for relaxing and a more quiet time, so if you're looking for a party, I am not sure it would be the place

- there is another rental unit on first floor and the owners live upstairs - this could be a drawback for anyone looking for a very private vacation. That said, the first floor was unoccupied during our stay, and Dawn and Sid were hardly heard or seen! (Previous VRBO with owners off site can sometimes be a challenge with little issues - so this is probably a plus here!)

All in all, this place is a great rental for location, size and comfort! It can easily be used for a family, a group of friends, a few couples, or larger groups, as you can rent the 1st and 2nd floor - total 6 bedrooms!

We absolutely loved our time (3rd time here) and our friends with us were here for the first time! Everyone loved it!

We'll be back!

Excellent Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Where do I start? ... everything about this place was great, the location, the tranquility, the owners , the maid. This place had it all, you just simply need to show up.. very short walk to the beach ,you can hear the waves crashing at night, we saw all kinds of birds, butterflies, even Monkeys, it was perfect. The Villa looks better in person than in the pictures. My family of four (10 year old son 15 year old daughter) plus my parents all were more than comfortable and all loved it. Casa Mimosa gets 5 stars , book it, you won't be dissapointed. Thank you Sid and Dawn!

Wonderful, relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (4 and 13 year old children) and a our 2 friends stayed at Casa Mimosa for 2 weeks in December. We stayed in the main floor unit, which is the smaller unit, and there was still more than enough space and privacy for everyone. The unit was very clean and well maintained. We loved having the pool just steps away from our door. Sid, Dawn and Maritsa were so welcoming and gracious. Make sure you have Maritsa cook for you at least once during your stay. Having a car is a must, but is worth it to be able to explore all the other towns and beaches near Flamingo. We will be back to Casa Mimosa, for sure, on our next trip to Costa Rica.

Loved this accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of five stayed on the 2nd floor unit for 2 weeks & had a great time. The location to Flamingo beach was great - a short walk less than 5 minutes; one of the best beaches we saw with hardly any people. The on-site maid was very friendly & accommodating. The owners, Sid & Dawn, were helpful with local information. Nice private pool & well-maintained yard. Would definitely go back!
