Playa Flamingo Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

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.

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.

Good value for money in a very nice location

  • 3 of 5

3.5, if VRBO allowed 1/2 stars.

Pro:

- Excellent value at a fraction of the cost of adjacent condos

- Close to beach

- Nice layout and well-sized rooms

- Great communication with owner and property managers

- Fast wifi

Con:

- Limited kitchen

- No laundry

- No credit card payment

- Lots and lots of ants

I don't want this rating to be misconstrued as indicating a bad stay, for the price that you are paying relative to other properties, you shouldn't expect 5 stars. I think this is just right in terms of value for money. If Playa Flamingo is the location you want, and cost is a factor, I would certainly recommend it. If you are used to 5 star condos where all is perfect top to bottom, you may want to spend more on a newer development.

Communications with the owner were excellent. She even bought a playpen to accommodate our infant. We were hesitant about booking without a secure credit card payment option, but the owner gave us options and references to make us feel secure, and all went smooth. We are very appreciative for that.

The condo has a nice layout, open concept on the main floor, towering cathedral ceilings in the bedrooms. The Master bedroom is beautiful. It is an older building though and shows its age in the small details.

We book condos for the ability to cook our own meals, so kitchens are important. Unfortunately the kitchen had some issues. The oven never got hot, only moderately warm. I did not see a BBQ on site either, so options were limited to stovetop and microwave. There was 1 good pan that was not flaking teflon, and all of the knives were worn and dull. No dishwasher isn't a huge deal, but probably something standard in a 5-star property.

We spend most of our vacations in the tropics so we are no strangers to insects - usually not a concern - Better than insect poison. But the ants here were beyond standard, there were entire colonies that overran different sections. Given that CR has many biting and stinging ants, we were worried about leaving our infant on the ground. Could have been seasonal issue, but there were noticeable gaps at the sliding doors and window slats, so maybe there are repairs that could help?

Great pool and wildlife watching right at the condo, and nice secluded beach close by. Reliable wifi and great A/C (you NEED it!). A few upgrades and this could easily get to 4-star. If you want to go to Playa Flamingo and are watching your budget, worth checking it out.

I will return!

  • 5 of 5

A sweet paradise, waking up to cacophony of parrots, howling monkeys, and palms swaying in breezes! A very bright, nicely designed, exceptionally clean, safe and quiet condo. A lovely pool approx 20 steps from condo. And a short trail to one of the most beautiful beaches I saw in Cosra Rica. Lovely for swimming, body surfing and walking; dropping into a beachside bar/bistro or taking a beach umbrella, chair and great book! Bliss! Town is minutes away, cheap taxi or short walk to great restaurants or convenience stores. Flamingo is a small uniquely picturesque safe community from which you can just hang out or explore all that this friendly country has to offer.

Flamingo Beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We based our visit to Costa Rica from this terrific condo that was about 100 steps from the amazing white sand beaches of Playa Flamingo. The pool is right in front of the condo's doors. There were good restaurants within walking distance but the grocery store was about 8km away - a bit too far to walk in the mid day heat! Rental cars and taxis are available nearby. Many local places between 2 and 10 km away in Potrero, Prieta, Brasilito...We will probably go back.

Great town house with it's own piece of paradise

  • 4 of 5

This is a great apartment. It's very spacious, has 2 big bedrooms, three bathrooms, equipped kitchen, great A/C in every room.The owner(Joanne) was very nice and helpful, she answered all my questions before the arrival. Property managers Jorge and Janina are great. Jorge met us at the entrance to Playa Flamingo to show us to the apartment, explained everything. We had a little problem with the lock on the front door - he got it fixed immediately. To our surprise on our second day we found all our beds done and towels changed - very nice touch! Location is absolutely gorgeous. 1 min walk to the best beach that we probably ever visited (and we do travel a lot!). Sunset at the beach was something not to be missed. Apartment complex had security guard 24/7. Property pool is great if you are tired of the beach. Playa Flamingo town - probably the prettiest of all neighbor beach towns. Highly recommended!

Location, Location, Location!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 5 days in Flamingo Beach at the Villa and we couldn't be happier with our choice! Everything was as promised and advertised AND we couldn't be in a better location for our vacation needs. The area is very upscale, but still very reasonable for a VRBO experience. The diving was great and the area had lot's of wildlife, sometimes there would be monkeys right outside the unit! Jorge and Luz took care of all our needs and had great local recommendations and advice.

Highest recommendations!
