Relax to the gentle sound of the surf breaking on Flamingo beach just a short distance away. Quiet and tranquil, a family or group of friends will have plenty of room and just enough privacy.

The Buena Vista Villa has 3 bedrooms/3 baths, gourmet kitchen, great room, and furnished veranda from which to enjoy the incredible view and sunsets and the cool evenings.

About the Owner

We are an English speaking couple originally from the US and England who have traveled extensively and chose Costa Rica as our home. Since arriving in Costa Rica our passion has been to help the poor people to take care of their dogs and cats. We provide low cost/no cost spay/neuter surgery, flea/tick medication, help treat mild ailments, deliver low cost food and general education on caring for their pets. Some parts of Costa Rica have so many dogs suffering from sickness and malnutrition that it is a heart break, but not near Flamingo.

Great location, beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5
Working with Sid was easy. he was very respectful of our privacy, but would respond any time we had a question. He has an absolutely beautiful villa at a reasonable price. We stayed in the larger villa on the middle floor. It was spotless when we arrived. We cooked in-home several times, and were not lacking for kitchen supplies for beans, rice, breakfasts, tacos, etc. Everything was there, and in good working order. He even had a colander. He gave us alternate directions to get to the Villa from SJO in order to avoid construction. He referred us to a pretty good tour operator who offered nice excursions for reasonable prices. His maid, Maritsa, was sweet and a great cook. She made us comida tipica one evening and it was REALLY really good. You should ask for her to cook for you. She was super timely with laundry - which meant we didn't have to pack as much!

The villa itself is nestled in a hillside with a great view in the morning of the mountains. The pool below is a play-pool, which means that the water was quite warm in our week of travel. Still, after being beaten up by the ocean, it was very nice to just float and relax in the pool. The tropical landscaping around the property is very pretty. We saw a few interesting birds, and very pretty flowers. On our last morning, the howler monkeys gave us a show in the trees just outside the perimeter of the property.

The walk to the beach is down a somewhat steep walk. You'll want to wear shoes. After being tossed around the ocean, the walk back up the hill can be a bit tiresome. It would be difficult for someone who lives a sedentary life, but just stop to breathe and you'll make it. Bring bug spray. Bring sunscreen. Bring shampoo. Sid provides shower soap, but it's what's available locally. The pix don't show bathrooms, but they were all very nice. Nice bath towels and linens. Beach towels were thin, but hey, dry off on the beach in the sun! The A/C worked just fine. In the hot week we were there, we opted to use it.

Sid has you put down a cash deposit for damage. Just use the coasters to protect the finishes, and treat the place respectfully. He provides all the basic necessities and many nice amenites. Enjoy!!

Beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week at the Casa Mimosa (Buena Vista) in March 2014. Our family - 2 adults, 2 teenagers, found Casa Mimosa to be perfect for our needs. Everything was better than advertised. We enjoyed meeting the owners (Dawn and Sid). We explored the Guanacaste region and it was great to come back to the Casa Mimosa after a long day of driving, sightseeing and exploring. The Playa Flamingo area is beautiful and the beach is great - just a three minute walk from the home. The beach is probably about a mile long and there were less than 20 people on it at all times - it felt like a private beach. The pool area at Casa Mimosa is nice and is well maintained (pool is cleaned daily). It was great having daily maid service - something we aren't used to as frequent VRBO users. Lastly, we saw plenty of wildlife throughout our trip - the monkeys were in the trees not far from the house and the birds were plentiful.

We would love to return to Costa Rica and Casa Mimosa is where we would want to stay.

Fabulous family vacation in Costa Rica

  • 5 of 5
The Buena Vista Villa at Casa Mimosa was an excellent choice for our family of 5, ages 13 to 70, for our winter vacation. We spent two weeks enjoying sunny +30C temperatures at Flamingo Beach during one of Manitoba's coldest winter in over 60 years. The villa is just as Sid has described, 3 bedrooms each with an ensuite and individual air conditioning. Dawn has done a great job of furnishing and decorating and Maritza does a great job keeping the place clean. The kitchen is well appointed and use of the barbecue provided great cooking options. Having breakfast on the terrace overlooking the forest was a wonderful way to start each day. One of the dogs would often join us on the terrace and they were always well behaved. We made use of the complementary beach chairs and boogie boards for our many beach days. The pool in the backyard is clean, refreshing and private. Sid hooked me up with Claudia Hladik at and she was an excellent resource for airport shuttle, car rental and excursions. The hill down to the beach was a little too steep for Grandma but my wife and I walked it almost every day. It really is quite close to the beach. Flamingo Beach is a beautiful white sand beach, one of the best we have seen, and we have seen many. The Coco Loco restaurant is right on the beach and was great option that is very close to the villa. The Super Massai is a good nearby option for groceries for a day or two but for larger shopping needs the Auto Mercado at Tamarindo is a better choice. Our Hyundai Tucson from Adobe car rental was a good choice. Thanks again to Sid for returning the car keys at the end of our trip. We are not usually the type to return to a place because the world is big and we have not yet seen all of it but this is one place that may get a return visit.

This was the first trip to Costa Rica for my wife and a few friends of mine. Casa Mimosa made this trip unforgettable! Reasonable price, great host, close to the beach. This was an extremely comfortable stay for 6. We each had our own room and were able to cook nearly every meal. Sid was an excellent host, even drove us to the grocery store one day! The maid service was tremendous. An excellent place to stay for families / friends / etc. Shout out to our new Costa Rica friends Sid, Tina, and Scruffy. We hope to see you again!

A week in heaven...

  • 5 of 5
I just spent an entire week at the Casa Mimosa on the 2nd floor and it was amazing! We spent more time in the pool and on our patio than we did at the beach. I've traveled all over Costa Rica (I live here) and this is my favorite swimming beach and I love that you see very few people along the beautiful stretch of white sand. Every evening around 4pm a flock of large birds (Ibis, Cranes, Herons, ...) would make their way across the tree was like they were flying to get their view of the sunset! When we were in the pool we'd watch the butterflies, dragonflies and even some iguanas casually go by. We cooked dinner at the house most nights and the kitchen has everything you need. We also took a snorkeling & sunset tour with Lazy Lizard that was fantastic and it was only a 5 minute drive as they picked us up on the beach just around the corner. We also saw & heard the howler monkeys, saw several birds when we'd go out walking (mot-mot, trogon, jays, etc). This was a fantastic place to unwind, relax and have quality time with my friends. It's perfect for friends, family or just a romantic getaway. One thing I think is very important to mention is that I felt 100% safe at this house because of the gated entrance, staff always on site and the fact that it is not beach front. Most beach front places I've stayed at I've been told not to leave your laptop on your patio table even for 1 minute so they kind of "scared me" to rent beach front rentals anymore. Not here...I am going back as soon as I can. :-) Thank you to the entire staff & owners: Dawn, Maritza and Anan. :-)

Casa Mimosa was incredible! We were lucky enough to stay for 3 nights, & we wished we could have stated longer. We were on the second floor. It's very spacious, spotlessly clean, & well worth the price as it's a short walk to the beach. We also enjoyed daily dips in the pool, where we were dazzled by the many species of birds, plants, & even very small fruit bats in the early evening. Don't worry, the bats are only interested in flying insects, not humans! I'm very picky about cleanliness, & Casa Mimosa delivers! With on-sight staff for daily house keeping, & maintenance. I recommend Casa Mimosa to families, groups, or couples who want a romantic retreat. It's a grand home right on the cost of Playa Flamingo. The pictures don't do it justice. Thanks to our Host Alba who provided great recommendations, & sparkling conversation. We will definitely book Casa Mimosa in the future! Jessy & Robert

From the Owner

We travelled extensively though Costa Rica on our vacations and continually came back to Flamingo. It is a nice small up scale community on a magnificent white sand beach with gentle waves. With the estuary running along most of the beach it is not crowded by over development and it never will be. The sun shines almost every day, even in the rainy season. It is so nice to wake up to warm air and a lovely sunny day. During the rain, it is a good time for a nap or to catch up on email when the rains usually come in the afternoon. When we found this lot with easy access to the beach, which is unusual in Flamingo, our fate was sealed. That is when we knew we were here for the long haul and built Casa Mimosa.

From the Owner

The peace and tranquility of the scenic outlook and the proximity to the beach and ocean. Many homes and hotels in Flamingo are located high on the hills and are a considerable hike or short drive to the beach. We are a very short easy walk to the beach.
