Beautiful location, great villa
Joanne and Jorge were very responsive to our questions. We had a change in vacation plans and booked this villa 2 days before our flight. Payment, direction, check in and communications were all very smooth and accurate
The villa is as seen in pictures. Very comfortable. Well equipped kitchen. You can see the ocean from the balcony off the master bedroom. The nicest beach is no more then 2 minutes stroll from the front door. We had 3 children ages 6-14 and the waves were enough for boogie boarding and gentle enough for swimming. The beach was clean and rarely crowded
The pool at the villa was refreshing and a nice break from the sun on the beach.
The laundry in back was great. Had two washers and a dryer, all worked great. And in the evening you'll see atleast 20 monkeys in the mango tree out back.
Wi-Fi was slow but did the job. House keeping came 3 times in our 6 days and were really nice.
Bank of Costa Rica (BCR) Has an atm that will give both colones and dollars
Mega super by tamarindo was our favorite grocery store with super massi being the closer quick run store. Coco loco on the beach was nice to walk to for dinner. Try the surf box for breakfast lunch and A'lo Nico for lunch dinner. The pizza place La Cocanda was great too.
We used Costa Rica wet n wild for horses ($40 for 2.5 hour tour) we should have used them for the Atv tour but already booked with someone else. If you book your zipline tour directly with the company instead of the tour guides at the beach you'll save a fortune
Overall, the Villa was very comfortable with convenient access to the beach and short driving distance to other great beaches in the area. I booked making a wire transfer to the unit's owner, Joanne. She responded rapidly to any of my inquires throughout the booking process, then she put me in contact with the property manager down in Costa Rica. All went as planned. The unit has all you need and plenty of space for a family of 4. Bedrooms (a master with a king bed and a 2nd bedroom with 2 twin beds) were upstairs. Each bedroom has its own private full bathroom. The kitchen, dining and living area were downstair along with another full bathroom. The Villas have a private pool (for all people staying at the Villas. Parking is in the street but it is safe. Coco Loco, a highly recommended beach front casual restaurant is about 5-10 minute walking distance from the unit. Flamingo beach, also 5-10 minute walking distance from the Villa, is a white sand beach with spectacular sunsets. Could not be happier with the location. The property did not have washer and dryer which was not a problem on our end since we packed accordingly. The only downside we found in the Villa is that there were tons of ants in the downstair area. Property management sprayed them out and we were able to keep them under control using odorless ant spray. Other than that, I would highly recommend booking this unit for your stay in the Flamingo Beach area in Costa Rica. Other beaches I recommend you visit within 20-40 minute drive include Playa Conchal, Avellanas, Tamarindo, Dante, Dantita, and others. Also there is a great breakfast spot about 7 minutes drive called Surf Box. Have fun!
I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay! I appreciate your feedback regarding your stay - thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review! Ants are an ongoing challenge in this climate unfortunately. For future reference, there is a laundry facility on site in a separate building just behind the villas. It is available for use by owners and guests after 2pm daily, when the cleaning staff have finished for the day, which is why I don’t have a washer and dryer in my unit. I’m sorry the property manager did not make you aware of this. It sounds like it didn’t inconvenience you, thankfully!
Large Condo and close to the beach
The condo had everything you need and more. It was very close walking distance to the beach but you couldn't see the beach from the condo. AC worked great. Kitchen had everything in it. Plenty of towels. American stations on T.V. Barbecue pit, ice chest for beach, beach chairs and boogie boards available. Cudos to the Mtnce crew and to the guys at the Palms gaurd shack. Monkeys always in the Mango trees out back. I highly recommend Maries restaurant. Other than going to the beach everyday there wasn't much to do. Took a catamaran and snorkel cruise through the lazy lizard which was great. The wood work in the house is really nice. My only dissapointme was that we couldn't see the beach and the bugs are bad.
Great spot for exploring the area
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 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!
Great vacation experience!
First, Joanne was so helpful with all our recommendations, transportation and connecting us with the right people to work with once we arrived. The condo is very cute!! Comfortable beds, fully stocked kitchen, BBQ, beach chairs and towels. Walk to the beach takes about 2 minutes total. The area is perfect for families and a great location!!1 We will definitely come back and stay again!! Jorge was very helpful with transportation, excursion and taxi recommendations!! Thank you for a great vacation!! Highly recommend!!
