Great winter break in a fantastic location
We spent 2 great weeks at this condo. It’s a 5mins walk to the beautiful Playa Flamingo (which is unlike most other beaches, it’s a white sand). The condo is part of the Oceanica condo complex; it’s the only building (besides the Flamingo resort) close to the beach. The location was perfect for exploring other beaches such as Brasilito, Conchal, Tamarindo (big town), and Las Catalinas. We thought Conchal and Flamingo were the best. The condo is well equipped and furnished, it’s got everything you need. The balcony overlooks at the beach and ocean with phenomenal sunsets. The complex is very secure with guard at the entrance (condo has a safety box too). The condo is within walking distance to 2 great restaurants: Marie’s and Angelina’s. We alternated between cooking at home and going out. There are also 2 great pizza joints: La Vaca Loka (5min drive) and La Sodita Italiana (10mins drive). All restaurants accept CCs. We took couple of tours via Blue Water Properties (which also manages the condo): coffee/chocolate plantation tour and turtle watch at night. They were both fantastic, very interesting and educational. We rented an SUV for few days each week for sightseeing and driving to grocery stores and few of the farmers markets (didn’t want to drive on the weekends when roads are bit chaotic). There’s a small grocery store within 5mins drive with limited selection (super massai). We drove to Tamarindo to Auto Mercado (similar to supermarkets in US, about 20mins drive) once a week and stock up on few things. There’s a nice farmers market in Potrero (Thursday mornings, it’s 30mins walk or 5mins drive) and Del Mar (just south of Flamingo, 10mins drive). The AC in c do worked perfectly. The condo complex also has a nice pool and a barbecue area (we grilled few nights). All and all we had a great experience. We will probably go back next year.
Really nice place
Popped in to CR for a few days to hang with my brother and his family who rented a house on Playa Flamingo. Found this place on VRBO and was contacted by Bluewater Properties right away. Had difficulty communicating with them at times via email and I'm not sure why, but eventually the paperwork made it's way back and forth and they were great overall. The condo is very nice. Clean and comfy with all the kitchen stuff you could need. I wish there would have been some coffee already there but no biggie...the bar down the street made a great cup. I expected to see bugs in the condo as ants and stuff are everywhere in CR but didn't see one. Had a cocktail on the deck every night and enjoyed the view and the sounds of the ocean. AC works great, water pressure is weak, ice maker was a huge bonus...overall a good value in a sweet location.
Hi Steve. Thanks for your kind review! Glad you had a good time at Oceanica 824 and a great experience with our team!! Hope to see you again soon. the Team at Blue Water Properties
We really enjoyed our stay at this property and would like to come back. This unit is on the 2nd floor, but you're up on a hill so you get an excellent view of the beach and sunsets. It's a 5 minute walk to the beach, but be aware you're on a hill and it's a hike back up. We found the property managers Blue Water to be very responsive. You will pick up (and drop off) the key at the property management office about 15 minutes away. You drive right past it coming from the airport so that's no big deal. Pay attention to the map Blue Water gives you or you might have a tough time finding the entrance to Oceanica. We had most our dinners next door at the resort. It had a 2nd floor bar with a view of the sunsets. It has full menu, or you can head downstairs for the dinner buffet (about $25 USD). We also discovered the bar had 2 for 1 drinks from 5-6pm :-) . The Beach is amazing for walking, I think it's about a half-mile long. We also drove to nearby Playa Conchal (Shell Beach) which had great soft sand. Recommend 4x4 if you're headed there. We would like to come back!
We spent 8 nights in this condo. The sunset from the balconies are hard to beat. The décor was modern and comfortable. The kitchen was stocked well with dishes and pans. They were lacking in mixing bowls and there were no spices (salt and pepper) at all. The internet worked well and was fast. The bed was to firm for us and gave my husband a backache. We had problems with one of the showers. Bluewaters sent someone out very fast to look at it. They got it going but unfortunately the pressure never was good in that shower so we stopped using it. The water pressure is not that great anyway. The electricity went out for short periods of time about half a dozen times but was always restored fairly quickly. The beach is beautiful and just a short walk away but the short walk back is very steep as is walking just about anyplace. This is good exercise but beware during the heat of the day. The surf has a strong undertow and was not good for swimming. We saw whales, rays, dolphins and some other type of large fish. The pool is at the top of the complex. We got more noise from the pool at the neighboring resort than the pool at Oceanica. The pool here was never crowded and shaded as the afternoon went on. There are not a lot of shops, etc close and is more a place to relax, walk the beach and watch sunsets which is what we like. A car is needed to get out and about but they can be rented by the day as we did for exploring. Mateo can organize this and they deliver and pick up the car at the condo.
Glad to hear you had a good stay and enjoyed your stay! We are glad that you also had a good experience with our Concierge Staff and Mateo. We don't make a point of furnishing units with spices for our guests. We do, however, keep spices left over from previous guests if there are some. We have since bought mixing bowls. Had we been alerted during your stay you needed some, we would have been happy to buy some and bring them to you! Hope to have you back in the near future!! The Team at Blue Water Properties
Great Place with Great Views
We stayed here for our honeymoon and so glad we did! This unit has great views of the ocean from living room and bedroom- beautiful sunsets every night. It is within walking distance of the beach, restaurants, and stores. The beach is beautiful white sand and clean. The only downside is that its a really hilly area, so ladies leave your heels at home. But we didnt mind, it took the place of working out and made for great views from this unit. Unit has a pool but you can also use the pool at the Marina Resort which is really nice and also has great views of the bay. Mateo was great in setting up all our tours, and transportation-always on time. He will get you anything you need! We highly reccomend staying here.
Nearest Airport: Liberia Located in the downtown (south ridge area) of Flamingo Beach. Located only 150 yards from the beach, walking distance to some great restaurants, shops and more. Many day trips can be made from Flamingo including visiting the area volcanoes, white water rafting, canopy tours, ATV tours and more.
