4 bedroom, 3 bath with steps to a semi-private beach
From the moment you arrive at Casa Flores you will be awed by the views! As you enter the front door into the living room and kitchen area you will note the large windows that enhance the feeling that you are finally at the beach! This feeling continues as you walk into the master bedroom with it's large windows and door to the upper balcony. When you go downstairs to the 3 guest bedrooms you will find a 2nd master bedroom with an entry to the pool deck. One of the other guest bedrooms also has an entry to the pool deck where you will find lounge chairs to relax as you soak up the morning sunshine! The pool deck can also be reached from the exterior of the home down a lush garden path. From the pool deck you can continue down the stairs to the semi-private beach where very few people have access. Tastefully furnished and designed for privacy while still being close to restaurants, Casa Flores is a beautiful place to spend your vacation in Flamingo Beach, Costa Rica!

BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY, GORGEOUS BEACH, NICE LITTLE TOWN AND UNPARALLELED SUNSETS!!
We loved the house and the location!
We have stayed at many villas in Central America, and found Casa Flores to be the best value yet. If you are looking for privacy, this is the place. Marcos handled everything well. Vickie made sure the villa was clean. Seldom ran into others on the beach. Water was clear for snorkeling - saw eagle ray, sea turtle, and many colorful fish. Pool was refreshingly cool. Easy access to restaurants. Coco Locos at Coco Loco Restaurant is a must. Surf Box is great for a light meal or smoothie. A trip into Tamerindo is a must. Overall great vacation!!
perfect family spot
This house has 4 bedrooms, plenty of space for 2 families! The semi-private beach was a haven in the morning and then a walk (uphill back!) to the beautiful white sand beach. The house was well equipped - the daily maid service what a treat!
If again we were travelling in a group of 8 I would definitely return to this house
Great location for a relaxing family vacation
We stayed at Casa Flores for a week in December with a family of 7 adults and one 8-month-old. The house was beautiful and perfect for a large group, as there were two master bedrooms with private bathrooms and a third bathroom for the other two bedrooms. The house was also well-equipped, and the service (cleaning, etc.) was excellent. Marcos was very responsive and helpful at every step of the way, from the initial booking process to check-out. The private beach was more beautiful than we had expected from the pictures, and we were usually the only ones on it. It was only a short 10-15 min walk to the gorgeous Playa Flamingo with restaurants, etc. The house is not great for young kids, as there are lots of stairs and the walk down to the beach is very steep -- but our 8-month-old couldn't walk yet, so it was not a problem for us. Overall, we had a wonderful time here and highly recommend it for a relaxing get-away!
The property is located on a hillside and is just as beautiful as seen in the pictures. Everything worked well in kitchen, many pots and pans, utensils, dish towels and leftover containers (some condiments of salt, pepper, sugar, oil and seasoning from past guests). The bedrooms & bathrooms were all were clean and well maintained and stocked with plenty of towels. The pool is "refreshing" (cool), a timer kicks on around 9:00 am and stops the gravity feed at about 6:00 pm. There are four Tommy Bahama chairs that you can take to the beach. The beach - a few other properties share the beach, but we hardly saw anyone at the beach. It is interesting to take daily walks along the beach, investigating hermit crabs and small fish caught in tidal pools and a few sea slugs on the rocks on the point. There is a bit of debris that is washed on shore, some trash (not a lot). Porch with table and stools was fantastic, ate breakfast and lunch here daily. Nice cool breeze all day. Two cushioned chairs for reading. DVD player with some movies
Snorkeling was not very clear at any of beaches over 4 feet deep, salt and ocean currents limited visibility.
Parking - down a one lane driveway. Only one parking spot. Another car can be parked at the top of the hill. The neighborhood is nice and you feel safe there. In the master bedroom, there is a large safe you can put your valuables in by entering a code.
Playa Flamingo is a short walk downhill from the property. There is a small boutique breakfast and lunch at the base of the hill, La Hoja Verde we recommend. On Playa Flamingo beach, a nice relaxing beach restaurant of Coco Loco is a great place to get a great meal at a reasonable price while enjoying the sunset. If going to the beaches, you may want to consider renting umbrellas and chairs. A little past Coco Loco on Playa Flamingo beach are some gorgeous homes/condo's. We did go to beach in Tamarindo, many surfers and bar/restaurants on beach. Many locals trying to sell trinkets, drinks while you are trying to relax. Nice beach to find shells. I would recommend going but want you know what to expect. We also ordered pizza from La Locanda next to grocery store about 2 miles from rental. Good Pizza and very reasonably priced, thin crust. Pizza's are on smaller side but tasty. Grocery store is decent, limited selections from US stores. Most people we met can speak English.
Hope this review helps. Enjoy your time at Playa Flamingo. I would stay here again.
Flamingo Beach is best known for it's sports fishing, however there are many more reasons to visit. Snorkeling, diving, horseback riding, walks on the beach, watching nature at it's finest are just a few. There are several restaurants in the area to please the palate. Supermarkets close by to purchase what you need to make your own cuisine.
