About the Property

Affordable, private home with private pool

Are you looking for a clean, affordable home to enjoy while you explore Costa Rica? Want to be able to eat in or out, go to the beach or relax in your own private backyard pool? Don't want to spend all of your money on your lodging but instead have a great place AND money left over to enjoy everything the area has to offer? If this sounds like you, then Casa Mango is your house!

Located just a 2 minute walk from the beach with a private backyard complete with a pool, hammock, lounge chairs, grill and dining area Casa Mango is an affordable and enjoyable place to stay that won't break your bank.
The master bedroom has a private bath. 2 additional bedrooms with a full bath are on the second floor. Downstairs is the kitchen, family room, dining area and access to the private backyard. The duplex sports a garage with an automatic door opener. Sit back and watch the hummingbirds flit around the garden plants. Float in the pool on the inflatables or play a game or tag with water guns or water basketball. This all allows extended families and friends to stay together in comfort. Restaurants and grocery stores are close by as well as beautiful Playa Flamingo, Conchal, Tamarindo and countless other beaches.

Surfside is a short walk from lovely Potrero Beach. There is easy access to local supermarkets, shops, restaurants and bars, many within a few minutes' walk. It is located just north of Flamingo. It's a real community, not a holiday resort. Some residents are permanent, some come for the winter, and some just for a few weeks. The people are a mix of Canadians, Americans, Europeans and Costa Ricans of all ages from infants to retirees. It's the kind of place where visitors feel immediately at home.

Car: Recommended

Beautiful area of Costa Rica with miles of beaches, each one with its own special attraction. Close to Playa Tamarindo, famous for surfing; Playas Penca and Flamingo, great for boogie boarding; and Brasilito and Potrero with quiet surf. White and black beaches in the vicinity. 2 hours away is the Buena Vista area, 4 hours away are the cloud forests of Monteverde and the active volcano, Arenal with hot springs. Fly into the Liberia airport and you are less than one hour from home.


Manager info

Year Purchased: 2011

About: We are a family of 5. I work as a nurse practitioner in pediatrics, my husband is in computers.

Why Guanacaste, Costa Rica:
We live in Denver with cold weather but have roots in the Mediterranean. Costa Rica is a beautiful and friendly area to get away to when the weather here is frightful. Close to the Liberia airport, access is easy! It is big enough to invite friends and family yet intimate enough to stay by ourselves. The area is varied.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Lots of expats from different countries. Small town feel. Very private home with a backyard and pool that is gated and locked. Easy to get to. Air conditioned in every room. Comfortable yet affordable. The beaches are intimate without the crowds of the Caribbean and Mexico.
