Recent Flamingo Beach reviews

  • Amazing!

    "I hate to admit but I've been hesitant to write a review because I'd rather keep this a secret, but I really love Costa Rica, the Flamingo area and the owner of this condo is wonderful to work with. This is our 8th trip to CR and we've stayed in multiple homes and condos in the area and we so enjoyed this condo. As soon as you walk in you are drawn to the panoramic views of the ocean. The sounds of birds chirping, waves crashing and warm breezes are the best. We only used the AC once! This is a first for us in CR but the multiple windows and 2 stories made the airflow perfect. This unit is beautifully maintained as is the grounds and pool area. We would have breakfast on the deck, afternoon nap, dip in the pool after the beach. We ate in most nights since we loved the views and the relaxing atmosphere. This unit is close to numerous restaurants within walking distance or a short drive. There is a market a few steps away or a larger market just a short drive and fruit market by Potrero. We walked the beach every morning and enjoyed the evening sunsets. Octavio the owner made us feel like family and I would highly recommend his lovely unit. Enjoy, relax and Pura Vida."

  • Fantastic Flamingo Beach

    "We decided to treat ourselves for our last 3 nights in Costa Rica and rented this condo via VRBO (my first experience using VRBO) and was really pleased. From the warm greeting from the rental managers to the location and quality of the condo, we were very, very happy! The views of the Pacific were spectacular and the beach was only a 5 minute walk down the hill. The condo was great too! Very well appointed, clean, huge kitchen, and a wall of glass. Would recommend this for anyone."

  • Perfect location for rest and relaxation

    "The condo is in a perfect location for rest and relaxation, yet close enough for active adventures. The condo is just as pictured. The view from the condo is outstanding. To see the blue sky and hear the surf from the front window is heaven on earth. The condo is nicely appointed with all the comforts of home. Beds are very comfortable. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon and Rita from the property management company greeted us and led us to the condo to give us an overview of everything. She was most helpful and readily available for any questions we may have. The information provided by Kalli was wonderful. She did not miss a thing in terms of what is provided as well as recommendations for dining and recreation. We took advantage of having groceries delivered to the condo on the day of arrival so that we could have a restful evening and enjoy breakfast items in the morning. We took long walks on the endless beach and enjoyed cocktails and appetizers at the Beach House, which is walking distance from the condo. There is a fruit and vegetable stand just as you enter the property and the pineapples were sooo sweet and delicious. We had a private chef come to the condo on two separate occasions and it was worth every penny. We also had two massage therapist (Alejandra and Karen)come to the condo for heavenly one hour massages. We were so impressed that we had them come back again. Roxanne was the name of the concierge we worked with prior to our arrival and she is the one who set up the private chefs as well as the massage therapists. What a wonderful service. I do recommend renting a car since it is a distance from areas that have more action, such as Tamarindo. Tamarindo is about 25 minutes by car. Everything else is within walking distance; the Beach House, The Shack (best Tico breakfast in town), Playa Flamingo and its beach vendors. I would not hesitate to rent this condo again. Kudos to Kalli, Rita and Roxanne for a job well done! Pura Vida!!!!"

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

    "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!"
