Welcome to #8 Villas Flamingo, your home away from home. This comfortable 1500 sq ft bright end-unit 2-story town home offers you a unique experience in a peaceful tropical setting just 100 steps to the beautiful white sandy beach of Playa Flamingo. Take a short stroll down the beach for an evening meal at one of Flamingo's open air restaurants or pick up one of Marie's world famous barbequed chickens to take home. Flamingo's drug store, bank, shops and car rentals are ready to serve you.

There is a local market nearby and a half hour drive will bring you to a modern air conditioned supermarket with a full array of fresh produce. While you are there, drive for a few more minutes and experience Tamarindo with many shops, restaurants and surfers riding the waves.

Then back home to #8 for a quiet evening or a boca party by the pool. Wake up to varied bird song and see the howler monkeys that live in the surrounding trees. In the morning, take a walk down the back road behind the Mangrove Forest to see the parrots. Enjoy this wonderful experience at one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, Playa Flamingo.

Door-to-door shuttle service available to and from Liberia International Airport, less than an hour's drive away.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Less than the 100 yards from a quiet white sand beach, the Villa's Flamingo condo complex sites in a lush tropical garden. Unit # 8 is probably the nicest unit, fully equipped with two bedrooms and three washrooms. The decor is beautiful and the kitchen, dinning room and living room are spacious and well furnished. The town is quiet, safe and boasts a number of excellent restaurants.

My wife and I have enjoyed our past five winter vacations at unit # 8 and plan to continue to do so.

Great spot for exploring the area

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for part of our Spring Break. It was a last minute trip and we were fortunate that this townhome was available. Unit was furnished with all that you would need, place was clean and the owner very helpful. We had an issue with the cooktop and the property manager was quick to respond and help us. The only problem was the internet, it was very slow. It was a challenge to get work done and emails checked. It seemed that certain times of the day were better than others. We own several businesses and had to be connected while away. The pool area was very nice and the beach just two minutes away. We love Costa Rica and the Playa Flamingo area is a favorite of ours to visit. I would recommend this unit and would stay here again while in this part of Costa Rica.

Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

Great property close to the beach- it is literally a 5 minute walk. The property was very clean and spacious. I was impressed the security staff who helped do everything from unload our luggage to point us to the nearest washing machine. Six beach chairs also came in very handy for our family as well as an abundance of beach towels. The owner was very quick to respond and very easy to work with. Great place to wrap up our trip to Costa Rica!

A hidden gem!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to stay in the Playa Flamingo area, after looking at many we reached out to the owner Joanne with a few questions, she answered quickly and thoroughly. When we arrived we found the unit to like home at the beach! Beautiful woodwork, great AC, super large 2bedroom, 3 bath unit with fully equipped kitchen. Even beach chairs and a cooler for your use. The pool is just steps out the front door, and a trail to one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica is a few steps down the street, and you're there in a couple of minutes tops! Quiet area, close to everything, we will be back👍😎

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved this villa! The location is amazing, very quiet yet close to everything. The air conditioning was the best we have experienced in our travels! The beds were a priority for us and they were very comfortable, we had awesome sleeps! Being able to do laundry was a great bonus. We had a bit of trouble with the stove which the property managers came and fixed but the oven didn't work at all. I found the owner of the property amazing! She was great to communicate with and gave us a lot of helpful advice. I would certainly recommend this villa, we would love to stay here again.

My wife and I loved our stay here. Great location very close (2 min walk) to beach and restaurants. The air conditioners worked great. The condo is very spacious and kitchen has everything you need.

Jorge the property manager was also very helpful with answering questions. We would definitely stay here again. Depending on your travel habits you may not need a car rental while staying here. They have taxis in the area and the grocery store is about 20 min. walk.
