Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: I originally was attracted to the area in 1974 and have owned and developed land here since then. I love the protected bay, the Catalina islands 5 miles out, and the almost deserted beaches nearby. The spectacular sunset views are what really attracted me to this 90 acre hillside property minutes away form the beach. The little village nearby has most everything and Flamingo on the other side of the bay has the Casino, night clubs, tourists, banks and other services.

Why the Owner Chose Playa Flamingo, Costa Rica:
Actually I built this home 10 years ago on property that I have owned since 1974. This piece of land is right on a ridge and not only has a great ocean view it has a mountain view and great breezes almost all the time. On the night of the full moon you can watch the sunset on the ocean and then turn 180 degrees and watch the full moon rising shortly after. There are almost magical sunsets all year around , great reflections on the water from this vantage point 100 meters up and 500 meters back from the beach. The beaches are not crowded and if one hikes or drives a few miles you can sometime get a beach to yourself.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
I enjoy the dry tropical climate of this coastal area. After exploring all of Costa Rica I realized the humid areas were too humid , too rainy, and full of bugs. This area has way less insects, less snakes, and less humidity and rain then anywhere in the country. Just a fan or a breeze keeps one comfortable due to the drier air. Temperatures hover between 73 to 93 degrees all year around , and the ocean is about 80 degrees F, nice and comfortable . There are so many activities that I have listed above and some of the other attractions are only an hour or two away. COSTA RICA HAS 25% OF ITS LAND EITHER IN NATURE PRESERVES OR NATIONAL PARKS. I love photography , this is a photographers and an artists dream.
