Description

Playa Flamingo House Rental Photos and Description

This ocean-side home was designed to maximize privacy and security without compromising it's sunset and pacific ocean views.

Referred to simply as 'LOT FOUR', the residence was constructed with considerable attention to detail using the best building materials available. LOT FOUR sits above the white sands of Playa Flamingo; close enough for the surf to be heard from every bedroom (270" above sea level) .......a 3 minute walk to the beach below. The trip home takes slightly longer! Guests can easily walk to Flamingo's town center where several restaurants, bars and shops can be found.

LOT FOUR's contemporary design is characterized by an over-all architectural sensitivity to persons with mobility issues; all five bedrooms and baths are discreetly served by an elevator and ramps as necessary. Two bedrooms have king size beds; two have queen size beds and the fifth has a pair of twins. The top of the home features an outdoor wet bar that is ideal for entertaining a large group or can provide privacy while enjoying the jacuzzi as the sun sets into the Pacific Ocean.

Britta Englehardt, is the owner of Tropical Homes of Costa Rica which manages this property. LOT FOUR rental prices include housekeeping services on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Additional concierge services such as a cook, pool-side massages, manicures, pedicures, hair cutting, etc. are easily arranged through Britta's staff.

Most of this home's guests take advantage of the complimentary airport pick up service in Liberia. Allowing our driver ( Brian ) to meet your party in his airconditioned van avoids having to deal with renting a car at the airport; he speaks English fluently and is happy to stop at the local grocers to provision the house. Britta can arrange to have a rental car delivered to you at the house when you are ready to start exploring the area.

Because LOT FOUR is occupied by it's owner a portion of each month, it is fully appointed and equipped in a manner not usually found in a rental. Understandably, this property inspires respect and may not be suitable for all persons, including those with unattended children. Well mannered dogs are always welcome. Those interested in experiencing LOT FOUR are well advised to inquire directly with the owner regarding availability as the attached calendar and his schedule have enviable flexibility.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and i have stayed at this incredible home a few times and we will always return here on our Costa Rica trips. Accessibility and privacy make this property a winner. Close to Liberia and with all the comforts of home....the views from all levels are spectacular...we have seen whale spouts on the horizon and sunsets that knock our socks off...(well our flip flops is more like it). Great restraunt a short walk up the hill and many great dinning options a few minutes drive. Walk to the beach down the hill or a short drive to Playa Grande and not to far to Tamarindo for a town w/ a big time surfer vibe, great food and great waves. This house has it all!!!

Plush Property/Beautiful Beaches and Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

Over the years I have traveled extensively with my family. Recently, we began renting houses rather than staying in hotels.......sometimes with mixed results.

In March of 2016 we rented LOT FOUR for a week. We had never been to CR, and as with any new place, the trip and arrival process can be stressful and the choices made based on internet photographs disappointing.

This experience was neither.

The rental included a complimentary airport pick up in Liberia. The van was clean, air conditioned and operated by a well spoken Costa Rican fluent in English (Brian?). He drove us to the house via the local grocery store so we could be adequately provisioned for the first couple of days. He arranged for various tours without our having to place ourselves in the hands of strangers or haggling with tour operators as is so often the case. The property manager (Britta) had a rental car delivered to the house on the third day at a rate I could not match; a process that avoided the car rental crush at the airport as well as two days of rental expense, while we acclimated poolside.

The pictures of LOT FOUR do not do it justice. The description of LOT FOUR understates the amenities and the warmth shown by staff.

Overall, a super experience.

Amazing Residence and Staff!!

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to extend our sincere gratitude for the absolute best vacation ever! At every turn all expectations were surpassed. The owner was available to answer any questions that we had. The villa is beautiful and kept immaculate by a staff that is available day and night to assist with tour planning, insight into getting off of the beaten path, translation and ensuring that all aspects concerning the residence are addressed. A heartfelt thank you for an awesome Costa Rica experience and honestly the best vacation that family and friends could ask to have. Recommend using the staff on hand to plan any adventures rather than doing it yourself - better deals and a more personalized experience will be your reward.

Amazing time in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

We loved Costa Rica! Lot Four was exceptional and more than we expected. The beauty of the home is depicted well in the pictures but you have to experience the reality of the sunsets from every room...truly spectacular! The location of the home was perfect. We were just a short walk to the beach and small town. Everyone was so friendly and helpful. We felt very safe during the day and evening hours. Evelyn took great care of us during the week. She kept the house very tidy. Next visit, we would have her cook some meals for us...we did not know she was willing to do this. Net time for sure!

We booked several tours with GoBrian Tours. Brian met us at the airport upon arrival and gave us personal treatment all week. He taught us a lot about Costa Rica, and I would recommend him to visitors to the country. He is a very kind man and we enjoyed his company.

Thank you to everyone! It was an amazing trip to Costa Rica! I would highly recommend staying at beautiful Lot Four in Playa Flamingo!

Summer 2013

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing and the trip overall was great. Went horseback riding, zip lining and white water rafting near Liberia. Best fishing at Playa Conchal with Frederick Morgan and jet skiing prices right down the hill by the beach. The best seashells found in Tamarindo and Playa Conchal. The views were amazing from this house and the privacy was great. Marie's and the Monkey Bar within walking distance from house. You will learn to love the hill. Great exercise. :)

Best family vacation yet!!

  • 5 of 5

We travel to a new destination each year and never repeat....this will be a first! My husband and I visited with our two teenage daughters and our friends that have 3 teenage daughters.

The home accommodated us perfectly. Lot 4 is a fabulous home with everything anyone would need or ask for. All the amenities of home and more. The pictures on the website show a beautiful space but until you step onto the rooftop from the street, you have no idea just how beautiful and well thought out this place is. It's owner did a fabulous job of utilizing all spaces. There is a view of the quaint town of Playa Flamingo and it's scenery out of every window and off each balcony. The elevator came in handy for quick access to the rooftop for the best view of the sunset each night. It was something we never missed and as we enjoyed a bottle of wine at the bar, our girls watched the setting sun from the jacuzzi. The home is as clean as one could ask for and the pool area is such a great addition. The beach is absolutely beautiful with very few people around. The restaurants we visited in town were great and within walking distance. We did not rent a car and were happy that we didn't. Made for more exploring which we thoroughly enjoyed.

The people of Playa Flamingo are very friendly and we were very sad to leave Evelyn, she is a wonderful lady and great housekeeper. She made a couple of traditional Costa Rican meals for us which we loved. Renee, the property manager was very easy to work with and available for us to call with any questions or concerns.

Our families spent one day ziplining, rafting, horseback riding and canyoning. It was so nice to be able to return to Lot 4 to relax after such a long day. It seemed to be the theme of the week..."let's just go back to the house and relax" or "let's go back to the house and swim." It is truly one of a kind and I would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a fabulous home with a view to die for, a perfect location and everything you would ever need.

Thank you Michael for opening up your home to us, we plan to return very soon!
