Property description

Wake up to the sound of the surf and a spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean. Stroll along the two miles of beach that at times seems almost private or just lounge by the pool. Or if you are more adventurous, take a few laps in the ocean before breakfast. Those are some of your options when you stay at Casa El Paraiso. Our house is located in the community of Surfside and is a 15 minute walk to the town of Flamingo and a much shorter walk to numerous stores and restaurants within blocks of this great house. Many Americans, Canadians and Europeans live in or visit this area frequently and we have it on good authority that a movie star in the Bourne Identity stayed there this year.

The house is only a few years old with all the amenities of a new home in the states including central air. The beach is only a hundred feet from the back door with a gentle and swimmer friendly surf. Two of the bedrooms look out on the ocean as does the living room and kitchen. The private pool is great for a cool refreshing dip or just to lounge around. If you enjoy watching wildlife, numerous species of birds and iguanas frequent the yard.

There are many great restaurants and bars within walking distance or a few minutes drive of the house. There is also some excellent shopping in Tamarindo and Flamingo, which are both a short drive. For those more adventurous there is zip lining, horse back riding, white water rafting, kayaking, diving, snorkeling and deep sea fishing only minutes from you. We especially enjoy the deep sea fishing. There are plenty of fish to be caught from the surf behind the house as well.

The sunsets are incredible in Costa Rica. One of our favorite things to do is to gaze at the seemingly endless Pacific Ocean listening to and watching the tide roll in while the the sky continuously changes from crimson to purple. Just when you think it can't be any more spectacular, it is. A cold Margarita or Cervaza enhance the experience as the cool ocean breezes blow.

Our maid and guard will try to accommodate your needs and if you experience problems or need assistance with activities or travel plans, our property manager can assist you.

We love vacationing there and look forward to sharing our house with you.

Year Purchased: 2005

Why Guanacaste, Costa Rica:
After visiting numerous tropical locations including the Florida Keys, Hawaii, Grand Cayman, Cozmel, Cancun and Belize, we came to Costa Rica and fell in love with the country and the people. The people are what make the difference as many places are beautiful with similar weather, but in Flamingo it all came together for us. We never get tired of visiting and maybe one day can spend the winters there.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Staying on the beach has it's rewards. Not only will the sound of the surf lull you to sleep, but you can walk in the sand anytime you like and the view of the Pacific is amazing. My hobby is fishing and there is some great fishing right off the beach or from a kayak that can be rented just down the beach. They also rent the fishing equipment and will help you learn how to catch the fish. If your thing is deep sea fishing, there isn't a better place to go than here in my opinion. Last trip out in July 2011, we caught 10 yellowfin tuna, 5 sailfish and 1 mahi mahi. We actually spotted around 40 sailfish on that one trip, many within a cast of the boat. My wife especially loves our back yard and private pool and the two of us spend countless hours there listening to music and reading while listening to the ocean surf. It is also fun to pick up shells on the beach or watch all the birds and iguanas in the back yard. Some months the butterflys are so thick you just can't believe how many can congregate in one place. The shrubbery in our yard seems to attract them. If you enjoy fresh food, the local fruit is incredible and the seafood is outstanding at almost any of the restaurants nearby. You can walk a few blocks to several very good restaurants or drive a few miles to others or you can do the cooking right there at the house if you are so inclined. You might even want to bring a chef in to prepare a meal or two for you at the house.
