AREA DESCRIPTION

Tucked away on the Pacific Gold Coast between Playa Brasilito and Playa Potrero is Playa Flamingo, considered by many to be one of the most beautiful beaches in all of Costa Rica. With white sand, crystal blue waiter and lush green scenery, Flamingo Beach is ideal for any tropical getaway. Quiet and peaceful, the area embodies the appeal of a small coastal community, without sacrificing the attractions of the more populated tourism areas. Only 45 minutes away from Liberia International Aiport (LIR) and 30 minutes away from Tamarindo Domestic Airport, arriving in Flamingo is easy. Flamingo has become a praised travel desitination as well as a home away from home for those searching for a simple way of life amidst beautiful scenery. In addition to stunning private residences and breath-taking beaches, the Flamingo area is home to a wide array of other alluring features..

CULTURE, FOOD & PEOPLE

Although a popular travel destination with an abundance of fine-dining and tourism, Costa Rica is still able to embrace its local culture. Wine and dine, surf and shop within the heart of Flamingo or Tamarindo, and then step out to Brasilito, Potrero or other surrounding towns to walk among cowboy country and enjoy tropical fruits and vegetables, authentic dishes and some of the best coffee in the world. You may find yourself amidst the night-life of Tamarindo one evening, and then within the heart of an authentic Costa Rican 'fiesta', or rodeo, the next. Either way, you are sure to encounter some of the most friendly and genuinely happy people in the world who love to encourage you to slow down and embrace the 'pura vida' lifestyle.

ACTIVITIES & ATTRACTIONS

The Flamingo Marina is renown for offering some of the best deep sea sport fishing for sailfish, marlin, snapper, tuna, mahi-mahi and other game fish on the Pacific Coast. The area also offers immaculate golf courses, unbeatable sunset cruises, scuba diving, sea kayaking, jungle canopy tours, horseback riding, and ATV tours. Take advantage of local Leatherback turtle sightings or plan a day trip to Monteverde Cloud Forest, Volcan Rincon de la Vieja or Volcan Arenal for hiking, waterfalls, hot springs and day spas. We would be happy to arrange any activities you are interested in. For a full list of the activities in the area, click here.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had an amazing time, the concierge service was great about helping us plan our visit and ensure we had everything we needed. We were met at the airport by a taxi to take us to the house, they even stopped at the grocery store on the way for some essential supplies. We were met at the house and shown around and introduced to Marta and Don the live in house maid and gardener. The house was exactly as described with fantastic views of the bay. For an additional fee Marta will prepare up to three meals a day, and she is a great cook. She does all the cleaning, makes the beds and does any laundry (but you had better speak some Spanish). Its a short walk down into the village with restaurants and bars and just a little further to the amazing Play Flamingo beach.....incredible. We went on several morning walks and practically had the entire beach to ourselves. There is also a secret secluded beach even closer and notes at the house on how to find it. We rented a small car to help ferry back to the house which is a healthy elevation up from the beach, it also comes in handy to get to the grocery stores that are farther away. The Lazy Lizard sunset tour is a must and Captain Jesus and his crew took excellent care of us. The house had good WiFi internet connection. We will certainly be back.

House was Great: Location/View...Neighbor with vicious, barking German Shepards was awful!

  • 4 of 5

We had a large group and were very comfortable at Casa Miramar. The house is very large and there was plenty of room for all of us to spread out. The view from the balcony is breathtaking and the highlight of the house. It was nice to jump in the pool during the day and soak in the Jacuzzi at night. We walked to the beach and local restaurants on several occasions and the hike back up to the house was good exercise! We rented a 4-wheel drive SUV, highly recommended for any of the Costa Rican unpaved roads! We made good use of it and drove to lots of the nearby beaches. Donald was great and cleaned the pool and balcony area daily. Marta made the beds and swept, but did not empty the trash in any of the bathrooms or kitchen. We also had trouble getting the appropriate number of bath towels for our party and had to share the first few days. We started out with only one spoon and after mentioning this to the rental staff, Marta brought up a handful the next day. The house could use more glasses and coffee cups. Also, we were told toilet tissue and paper towels were included, but we never got paper towels and were limited to 2 rolls of TP per bathroom for our 10-day stay. I would suggest charging $100 more per week and let people have as much TP & PT as they need! The staff at Special Places was very helpful answering emails and arranging excursions prior to our arrival. However, they seemed a bit disorganized after our arrival asking all in our party to come into the office to sign credit card receipts for our excursions despite us submitting a credit card authorization form prior to our arrival. They never mentioned we would have to come into the office and do this and it was a bit irritating since we wanted to start our vacation! The neighbor next door with the dogs was awful. She encouraged the dogs to bark at anyone walking by and the dogs barked at all hours of the day and night disturbing our sleep. The car gate at the bottom of the driveway needed repairing one day and the neighbor left the dogs outside to bark at the repairmen for hours. If you could get rid of the neighbor and her dogs, the house is ideal!

My stay at CASA MIRAMAR in Guanacaste

  • 5 of 5

The view was beyond belief. The property was perfect for our group, everyone had their own room with an on suite. We were able to walk to the beach, shops and several places to eat! Donald was wonderful but Marta didn't seem to take care of the other rooms as well as she did the first floor Master. Also we didn't get a wash cloth or hand towel in the Master until we had been there two days. My daughter never got a bath towel and shared mine. We were not sure if it was her job to take care of the trash in the kitchen or not but we had to ask where to put it. Perhaps it was not her responsibility and the linens may be all that was available so we didn't let it interfere with our overall joy!

Spring Break at Casa Miramar

  • 5 of 5

Casa Miramar was a perfect place for our 2015 spring break! Our daughters had a blast! The house was spacious and very accomodating. We soaked up a lot of sun relaxing by the pool on the terrace while enjoying the magnificent view! It is an easy walk to the beach (Playa Flamingo) and good restaurants. Marta was a big help in the kitchen (her guacamole was awesome) and kept the place clean as did Donald with the pool and hot tub. Jonas with Adventours set us up on memorable adventures, ziplining through the jungle, riverboat/wildlife tours, and our favorite, the sunset cruise on a catamaran! Casa Miramar is a wonderful place for an unforgettable vacation!

Casa Miramar & Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip to Costa Rica. The view from Casa Miramar's terrace overlooking the Pacific Ocean is spectacular! We spent a lot of time relaxing on the patio and using the pool and hot tub (which were cleaned daily). Our party of five had plenty of room staying in the rooms on the top floor. The bathrooms in two of the upstairs bedrooms were very spacious as well. Casa Miramar is a gated property so we felt very safe. We were able to cook and grill at Casa Miramar on several nights and ate out locally the other nights. Marta and Donald were very nice although we did have a language barrier. We made good use of the Ipad we brought to look up Spanish words! Jonas from Adventure Tours (speaks English and very informative) took us to several adventures. The river boat ride where we saw monkeys, crocodiles, iguanas, and many species of birds, ended in an authentic Costa Rican "typical dinner" which was delicious! We rented a car so we could venture out to the surrounding towns of Brasilito, Tamarindo, and local beaches, etc. We totally enjoyed our get away!

Casa Miramar

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Casa Miramar for a week and found the house very inviting, spacious, comfortable and well-laid out. The views are stunning, and we spent a lot of time outside on the terrace enjoying the wonderful weather and beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean. There were exotic flowers, birds, squirrels, iguanas and even a raccoon to entertain and welcome us. This is a wonderful place to enjoy the beauty of nature. Martha and Donald were very friendly and helpful and took great care of us as well as the house. The language barrier was minimized with a translation app. There are several places within walking distance down the hill, but we also enjoyed the beach, took a day trip to Tamarindo and booked a couple of tours through Jonas with Adventours, all of which we highly recommend. We can't wait to go back to Costa Rica and Casa Miramar!
