average rating of 4.8 based on 29 reviews


  • 5 of 5

Villa Bougainvillea was absolutely amazing! The views were incredible and we loved the town of Flamingo. Special Places did a wonderful job arranging our transportation and excursions. They also made some wonderful recommendations in regards to activities, restaurants etc.

We did encounter a few difficulties with the house such as breakers tripping, loose shower handles etc. All were minor and quickly attended to by Special Places when reported. Overall an incredible vacation and incredible villa! We will be back! I wish I was there now!

Breathtaking views and amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

A group of 6 of us stayed at Villa Bougainvillea from Feb 5th-12th and were all taken aback with the beauty of this Villa. The owners have done a fabulous job with all of the details and you can tell that a lot of thought went into this villa when they were building it. The rooms each have their own bathrooms and are very spacious as is the whole villa. The infinity pool overlooking Playa Flamingo was incredible, we spent a lot of our time in it.

My husband and I had the pleasure of meeting the owner Denio when we first arrived and he made us feel right at home and was kind enough to take the time to show us around his lovely home. Denio, you and your wife did an amazing job when you built your home, thank you again for sharing it with us, we really appreciate it.

A special thanks to the property management team at Special Places of Guanacaste, Phem, Roy, Jesus, Kenny. They are all so nice and are always available to help with any of your needs. This is our second year back to the Playa Flamingo area and have only used Special Places to rent our villas. They have also been very helpful in arranging transportation to and from the airport, arranged Chef services and set us up with tours. It's great to have a one stop place that can help you with all your needs especially when you're not familiar with the different services available to you during your stay.

We would highly recommend Bougainvillea if you are looking to spend a week in Paradise.

Review of Villa Bourgainvillea in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

The house was as spectacular as the photos relay. We loved the infinity pool, the view from our villa was spectacular; the bedrooms were all like private suites with individual bathrooms and walk-in closets; and the main living/dining/kitchen area just beautiful. The services offered from Special Places was great, with immediate response to minor issues we had in the home. The location in Flamingo Beach, just a short (albeit downhill) walk to the beach enabled daily sunset watching. It was as they say in Costa Rica, pura vida!

Picture Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Villa Bougainvillea and had a wonderful stay. Phem and the staff at Special Places were terrific to work with, very accommodating and took care of any questions or needs we had.

There were 8 of us and the house had plenty of space for everyone. The best thing about the house was the picturesque view of the ocean!

We also hired a fantastic chef (Estefania), to make breakfast for us a few mornings - she made lunch for our fishing trip and prepared the fish the next day. I would highly recommend her!

I would definitely recommend this house and hope we make it back to stay again!

Missing the "attention to detail"

  • 3 of 5

Pictures make it look larger then it actually is and its a bit outdated. But as far as 5 star, no can do.


Fans are loaded with dust, bath mats are old and gross, and you need shower shoes, for sure. I know they don't ever sanitize it,

(very slimey).

Back stairs to the upper room are not cared for/very dirty, or at least not the week we were there. My mom actually washed them before we had guest for dinner.

Spider webs in most rooms, bedrooms smell old and musty.

The master bdrm (green) has a strong urine smell, quite awful, my mother let the management know, and their response was, "that we only paid for the basic cleaning." WHAT??? We have never heard of anything like this, they didnt even come to the house to see what the concern was. The office is 200 ft away.

POOL - 4

Very nice, tile could use scrubbing (a little slimey)

VIEW - 5

It really has a beautiful view, that's the best part of the house.


Playa Flamingo is a pretty sleepy town, everything closes 9:30/10. From the house, you can take a short cut to the beach, where there is one hotel, one beach restaurant/bar. (10 minute walk) Other then that, you need a car. Dont miss dinner or you will have to drive to Tamarindo to eat.


The response to the urine complaint was unacceptable.

Also, make sure you ask for an inventory sheet when you check in, we got charged for 13 mix match glasses for $50. What we would do with 13 mix match kitchen glasses, Im not sure. That was a bunch of bullshit but it's a foreign country and some things you just can't fight, like a US top of the line property.

So, bottom line, if your looking for a 5 star VIEW, and not worried about the rest, this is for you.

BUT if you expect a lot from a 5 star villa, like you should, go elsewhere.

Owner's Response: Dear Karen, Thank you for your time for writing a review regarding the villa. We appreciate feedback, positive as well as negative, so we can insure that each of our guests have an excellent experience. We do have to respond to items of your review, so future clients have a full understanding of the situation. You had booked this property for your wedding, and you held the dinner and party there. We personally showed you and your future husband the property during a preliminary trip before you booked the property, so you could see if it was a perfect fit for your special day. At that time it met with all your expectations. It is hard to understand why you did not personally mention your issues regarding the property during your stay when we met daily to discuss items for your wedding party. You only brought up these items of complaint after your visit had concluded and after we sent you a bill for the 13 wine glasses that were broken. It is understandable that when such an extraordinary number of glasses are broken in such a short period of time that this will be billed to the guest. Accidents happen we understand but this is far beyond normal. Our team at Special Places is 100% guest oriented, and customer service friendly, so we can create an unforgettable experience for our guests. For further explanation for future guests regarding your other complaints: Cleaning Service: The day of your arrival, you requested daily cleaning which we explained would be at extra cost, as a weekly rental only includes cleaning on the day of arrival, 1 midweek cleaning, and after departure. Urine Smell: When you notified our office of what you determined was urine, we found that the smell came from the AC which had an obstructed drain line. This was cleaned the same day you reported it to us. Pool: our pools receive twice a week pool maintenance, and daily the system runs for multiple hours. We do advise clients to rinse sunscreen and sand prior to entering the pool. Disinfectant: There is cleaning performed weekly and disinfectant is used every time. The bathrooms are spotless and have no "slime". Playa Flamingo: Is a beautiful , quaint Costa Rican resort town but also sophisticated if you look around for all the hidden gems. Granted, it is not Miami. Five Star: The Villa currently has 19 5-star reviews, 3 4-star reviews, and 1 3-star review. Villa Bougainvillea is a "picture perfect" house and home.

This property is incredible! It truly is as it is described and the pictures do not do it justice. If you are considering renting this home do it! You will not be disappointed.

If you are looking for some good ice cream, head down to the plaza area just outside Marie's restaurant (great breakfasts!). There is a family who makes homemade ice cream and adds different liquors to it, that is so delicious! They do have some for kids as well.

We will definitely try to return to this property again soon!

Guestbook comments from the manager


Amazing view! Large, comfortable house with plenty of space. Bar seating and a giant dining table. Entire back of house opens up to the horizon pool and outdoor seating area. A/C units in every room so you can take a break from the humidity at night (or whenever). Older kids will love the privacy of the external access bedrooms, which are still within the secure, fenced perimeter of the property. Our 10-year-old girls stayed in the upstairs bedroom. Short walk down the hill to the town center and beach (going back up is a little more strenuous). Two excellent restaurants within walking distance: Coco Loco (eat on the beach) and Angelina's in the town center. Beach is clean and sandy. Marie's is a good place for breakfast (also in the town center). Grocery store is 5 minutes away by car. We took an Ecotrans shuttle from the airport to the town and then rented a car from Economy in the town center. From there, it was a 30 second drive to the house, which has a secure garage. Some of the roads are a little sketchy, and we didn't want to have to worry about finding our way to the house from the airport. However, once there, we found that Google Maps works pretty well for navigation. Lots of good restaurants within driving distance, even in low season.
