About Pamela

This condo is owned and managed by the owner: Pamela Lewis. I have lived in Costa Rica since 2007 (In Playa Hermosa, Guanacaste). I originally came here on a work assignment in San Jose and then made it my dream to live here full-time. This area of the country is amazingly beautiful and has so much to offer. I have been in the tourism industry here since 2008 and can provide tons of useful, local info and advice. I am very proud to offer you this incredible condo that has so many amenities and attributes. I regularly invest in its upkeep, maintenance and improvement. And, because I live here, I can make sure the condo always performs to its highest potential. Just check out my VRBO reviews, they speak for themselves. Thank you for considering staying in this comfortable condo ~ and remember, repeat clients receive a "Loyalty" discount on your next stay.

Pamela purchased this condo in 2009

Why Pamela chose Guanacaste

The views! And the gorgeous beach. And the great value price. Such an easy walk to the beach -- we love to play in the waves -- safe and fun! Flamingo (1 hour from LIR) is easy access to so much: surfing, volcanos, river tours, hiking, other beaches, jungles, and great bars & restaurants.

What makes this condo unique

You will be in contact with the owner of the condo, not a property management company. If there are issues or problems, you will receive, fast & efficient attention and response directly from the owner.

Fantastic in every way!

  • 5 of 5

Pamela was the best! Very easy process from the beginning.

She answered emails promptly and her recommendations about car rental were also excellent.

The condo was so beautiful and felt like home the minute we walked in. The location was perfect and close to restaurants and short walk to beach.

The condo was also very welll maintained and spotless!

We will definintely rent the condo again if returning to Costa Rica!

Beautiful and peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our anniversary here and enjoyed every minute. The condo is nicely furnished and spacious and the view is the star, with a covered deck you can enjoy the vista rain or shine. We had a light show almost every evening with thunder too. Although we came in the rainy season we were still able to enjoy the beach, every morning and do some exploring and come inside when the rain came in the afternoon. We also walked to Coco Loco at the end of the beach had some fantastic meals and watched the sunset.

The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals but there are restaurants in walking distance too.

After seeing other beaches in the vicinity Flamingo is definitely the quietest. Pamela was very helpful, coordinated a car rental for us and gave meticulous instructions on how to find her condo and we made it despite a torrential thunderstorm. I wish we could have stayed longer but we will be back.

Great location, amazing view!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a couple of weeks and loved every minute of it. The condo is centrally and ideally located in Playa Flamingo, within a very short walk to several great restaurants, shops, groceries, and of course, one of Costa Rica's most beautiful beaches. This unit is very clean and well-maintained, and Pamela, the owner, is professional, easy to work with, and incredibly helpful. The highlight of this condo is the incredible balcony view of Playa Flamingo, the mountains, Potreo Bay, and of course, an unobstructed and spectacular view of sunset over the Pacific . . . simply incredible! I highly recommend it!!!

Beautiful condo.

  • 5 of 5

The condo was so nice. It was clean, and had everything we needed. Pamela does a great job of anticipating what you might need. The kitchen had everything you could think of. The bedrooms were large. The views from the many balconies were fantastic, beautiful sunsets. The pool area was nice. It was low season, so it was like it was our own private pool. There was beach chairs and coolers for days at the beach. Lots of wonderful restaurants very near by. We would definitely recommend this property to everyone. Great job Pamela!!!

Comfortable, relaxing retreat!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place! It was a little difficult to figure out the area before we left, and I was not sure what to expect. It was much less crowded and more laid back than I expected. The condo itself was perfect with plenty of room, excellent kitchen, good washer and dryer (yea!!) and amazing views from both bedrooms. It was nice to stay in PJs for breakfast and coffee and sit on the balcony.

The walk to the beach involved two sets of stairs to the parking lot, then stairs to beach. It was closer and easier than expected. We used chairs, beach mats from the condo under trees on the beach. My husband and teen daughter enjoyed playing in the waves.

We walked down the beach to Coco Loco for lunch and ice cold coconuts with a straw in them (nice 1km walk, incredible tuna tacos and great drinks) or at night we drove to other end of beach and parked for a sunset dinner. We ate there every day...unusual for us to not try the couple other restaurants that were a little closer, and looked good but we kept going back!! As we were leaving, we wished we would have checked out the little shopping center... but for 3 days we had plenty to do!!

Wifi in the condo was excellent for us, and better than many hotels where we have stayed. I posted pics of our trip to Facebook with no problems. My 14yr old daughter said wifi was weaker for 2nd bedroom... which was a plus! If she wanted to text her friends she had to come out!!

We drove to Tamarindo (20-30 min) and watched surfers one day. Recommend downloading local area to Google Maps App to use as a GPS. It was very helpful. We also bought a $2 SIM from Kolbi (with iphone6) and added about $10 for data that was plenty for our 10 day trip. Mostly used wifi as much as possible.

The information the condo owner provided about visiting the area and country was very useful, and much appreciated!

Beautiful view! Beautiful condo!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed the condo at the Oceanic. Very clean unit, A/C worked well, enough kitchen supplies to cook a few meals. Some newer beach towels would be nice but not a big deal.

Pamela was wonderful and very informative. Don't hesitate to book this location in the beautiful Flamingo area, few steps down to the beach, few steps up to the pool. Beautiful sunsets every night right on your deck. We had a wonderful vacation and this location was great, beautiful beach. Your are one hour from Liberia, 3.5 - 4 hrs away from Arenal Volacano/Rainforest Park. Thanks again Pamela for everything.!!

I'd be happy to help you book a rental car at GREAT rates! Since I know some of the best car rental companies in the area, you will not risk getting ripped off or receive a quote that does not have the complete price (which should include TAX and MANDATORY insurance, a.k.a.: LDW - loss damage waiver). They will deliver to your condo! I can also coordinate for housekeeping service. You pay her direct and arrange what works best for you. There is nothing like personal service when you are on vacation -- and that is what you receive when you rent with me.
