  • Super fun

    "Gorgeous grounds, away from everything, and so much character. We loved it here. Also, having our first breakfast groceries taken care of, umbrellas, a bag of charcoal, and a full box of dry wood for the fire pit were very nice touches. Don't miss Nauyaca waterfalls nearby! They're truly truly amazing. Before booking , you MUST know this is not going to be a luxury resort experience. There are no glass windows, only wooden panels that completely open, you pretty much live outside, in the heart of the jungle. One of the casitas has no walls at all, you're sleeping outside, with a roof over your head. It's very fun and romantic, but just to give you a sense of what it;s like, the swimming pool 8 feet away is the night home of 6 to 10 green frogs, 1 huge toad, and the cutest little baby boa (about 18 inches long). You can find them in and around the pool most nights. We found the boa chilling on the outdoor shower floor one evening. So if this doesn't sound like a fun adventure to you, you will not be happy here. A couple little things you might also know beforehand: - The beach is about 25 - 30 minutes from the house by car. - You MUST have a 4x4 to get through the 2km of rocky paths of the main road. - Wifi is slow. It works, but if you need to get work done, I found my cell phone 3G connection to be faster, so plan accordingly. - It's very difficult to get anything to dry because of humidity. One towel per guest was provided, but I wish we had a few more. - We discovered that what looked like a bookshelf between 2 doors in the main house was actually a ladder to a loft with 2 twin mattresses. Maria hadn't show that to us, or maybe I just misunderstood since I don't speak Spanish, but this was very useful since we only had one couple in our group of 6. I would definitely come back. Amazing jungle home."

  • Magical Beyond Belief!

    "This was my first visit to Costa Rica, four of us came to celebrate my boyfriend's birthday and I have to say that we all were overwhelmed with the beauty and the charm of this property, you could not be closer to the ocean. When we arrived, Perla (love her!), welcomed us with a warm smile and a great meal. She was very attentive to anything that we needed. Our laundry was done, house was clean, we were very spoiled!! Even prepared a great dinner with a fish that we caught the day before - heavenly!! Mel and Perla were very helpful with suggestions as far as fishing, zip lining and just the overall experience. We were able to walk to some local restaurants and even go to one of the local hotels and use their pool. When we wanted to just chill, we took advantage of the balcony that overlooks the ocean, we even got treated to a big tropical rain storm!! We would definitely go back, and recommend this property to anyone. Thanks Mel and Perla for giving us an amazing experience!"

  • Amazing vacation experience

    "This property is beautiful and has a pristine and serene beach. There is an amazing attention and care given to the details on the property. Barbara was great in regards to communication and booking the location. When we arrived we noted that every attention was given to details to make sure our stay was great and enjoyable. The staff at the location where extremely helpful, nice and professional. The amazing infinity pool overlooking the ocean was breathtaking specially at sunset. Make sure to have Meisol make you a drink at the poolside bar. We ended up going on multiple excursions and seeing different beaches in Costa Rica but none of them came close to this flamingo beach. Our two little kids had a blast on the beach which was steps away from the condo on what seemed to us to be our own private beach. Phem and her team from Special Places were great in making sure that all of our needs are met. This place was truly a hidden jewel. I enthusiastically recommend this location to anyone who is interested in going to Costa Rica and having a wonderful time"

  • Can't get any better

    "The location is great, the rooms are great, the pictures don't do the spaciousness justice. It is bright and very open. A horse back ride on Kieth's ranch should be mandatory-the horses are gentle and sure-footed. Our hosts are gracious and helpful, they treat you like old friends. The staff are great and friendly. The two k. Beach is across the road. The only thingwrongwiththis is my poor Spanish. We are halfway through our two week stay and definitely thinking seriously about returning next year-all eight of us"
