Front Row Center!!! ON Flamingo Beach: 5BR, Private Pool & Tiki Bar


Property Details

Updated: May 20, 2015
5BR, 4BA (Sleeps 10) Prvt Flamingo Beachfront Home - Poolside TikiBar/Kitchen

The Beach House on Playa Flamingo is a beachfront home centered on the most prestigious, pristine, white sand beach on Costa Rica’s North Pacific Coast. This 5 bedroom, 4.5 bath home, easily accommodates 11 people plus. Please Read Our Reviews!

Being on the center of this beach gives our unique location an unparalleled access to Flamingo Beach and view of the islands and year round sunsets. You also have the convenience of walking down the beach to Flamingo Village. Wake up to the gentle sound of surf, sit on the deck and pour yourself a fresh cup of Costa Rican coffee and watch the kids play on the beach or in the pool. Although many rentals in the area claim to be on or in Playa Flamingo, most are not. There is only ONE Flamingo Beach and we are on the center of it!

We offer the services of a full time cook at your convenience for a very reasonable rate that goes directly to him. The cook's own menu at the house includes everything from a variety of local Costa Rican

dishes and North American favorites to different ways of grilling the fish you caught that day on our BBQ. He’s also happy to teach you how to make fresh

homemade tortillas! All you pay for are the groceries and his weekly rate.

And… if that’s not enough, the “Toes in the sand” dining of Coco Loco is right there with menu and ambiance second only to us.

Enjoy being beachfront on Flamingo Beach with a private swimming pool and tropical outdoor pool bar/kitchen, TV and barbeque grill. Take advantage of our Wireless internet and free international phone calls as you enjoy your favorite snacks, meals, drinks and major sporting events poolside. Or leave the world behind. With the beach only a few steps away, you can enjoy your cold drink on the warm sand. You're close enough to go back for a refill!

We have retained Costa Rica's 'Pura Vida' (pure life) ambiance upstairs with a variety of native hardwoods. Downstairs is a spacious living area with entertainment center, a suite and two ocean view bedrooms, a large guest bathroom and shower, Teak ceiling, an office area with a desk, computer and broadband wireless internet set up. A laundry room with two washers and dryers is set apart from the house with the outside pool bathroom.

The rest of the property includes a back yard area surrounded by a tropical forest great for viewing a variety of Costa Rican wildlife such as Howler Monkeys and many species of tropical birds, flora and fauna.

Our night watchman assures you of a good night sleep. Seeing as this is a

somewhat boring position in our neighborhood and Flamingo has its own security

force, he doubles as a turtle watchman and upon request, will wake you up if

they come to nest in front of the Beach House.

His specialty however is building bon fires. Any night that you prefer, just say

“Fogata” and grab your marshmallows...he’ll get a good one going. He is also our

evening coconut picker, maintenance man and cleans the pool/grounds before he leaves in the morning.

Flamingo also boasts the area’s largest sport fishing, sailing, diving and water sports fleet with near-by surfing for all your ocean enjoyment. At the Beach House, we can help you arrange everything from transportation, all tours and activities to personal massages at the house. A 16 passenger air-conditioned van with the area’s top guide will be ready to handle all of your needs from the time you step off of the plane.

We only rent to one group at a time. You will always have the entire property to yourself. Flamingo Beach Village is within walking distance where you will find restaurants, groceries, salon, disco, casino, pharmacy and Ocean activities.

We are owner managed, available locally and dedicated to making your Costa Rica vacation relaxing, comfortable and memorable.

Pura Vida!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you Mark for enabling our family to spend an enjoyable week on THE BEACH in delightful Costa Rica. Evans & Carla continued to provide delicious meals. Like all of the locals we met, they were always pleasant, happy and anxious to please. Thanks also to Jonas for arranging some exciting excursions for us. Our 5 yr old granddaughter will be talking about the Monkey's, baby Crocodile and Iguana's we saw at the river for years to come.

P.S. We highly recommend the Black Stalion Café and Saloon in Tamarindo. The day of horseback riding, ziplining and BBQ dinner was great. Owner/Host, Alex is a great character. Dining with him was like being at a neighborhood party.

Perfect Wedding!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our objective was to have a beautiful yet peaceful and relaxing destination wedding. After the hours of research on internet and numerous phone calls to those abroad, we finally took a "chance" at the Flamingo Beach Casa Playa Blanca. It could not have went any better, 10 out of 10!!! We had a wedding party of 25 with ages ranging from 18 to 75 and everyone had an absolute blast. Flamingo Beach in comparison to near by areas (Tamarindo), is perfect for those not wanting a "touristy" vacation spot. We had everything we needed in Flamingo Beach yet felt like the beach was ours! The house and pool area were very clean and accommodating to all age ranges. The younger crowd had a great time enjoying the outdoor bar area while the older crowd had plenty of room to comfortably lounge. Estefania (Cook at Casa Playa Blanca) was essentially our wedding planner and helped us with all the details for our big day. She helped select the rehearsal dinner location at Las Brisas (10 out of 10!), bonfire for the wedding reception and countless other little things that we really never thought of. I can't type enough nice things about Estefania on how she was instrumental on making our wedding so memorable. A real joy to be around. She cooked amazing food for us and was always there to help us with whatever we needed (with a smile on her face). Jean Luc from MarySol catered our reception on the beach (just steps away from the house) and did a beautiful job arranging the food and wedding setup - with excellent presentation. Our guests were still raving about his food weeks after the reception! The wedding arch, flower arrangements, seating and tables were 1st class....all arranged by Jean Luc. Jonas (Adventure Tours) was of great help as well. He arranged zip lining, fishing trips and numerous other transportation aids that were used throughout the trip. He understood that it was difficult to juggle 25 people of various interests and he seemed to always make it fun for everyone and was flexible with last minute changes.
In conclusion, this was a very memorable wedding and it was only possible by all the people mentioned - so helpful, accommodating, and just great people to get to know. I honestly couldn't have pictured for our special day to turn out any better! Thank you Mark for sharing such a beautiful property!

Magnificent sunsets

  • 4 of 5
We traveled with a group of 11, ages 4 through 76. We had plenty of space and comfortable sleeping arrangements. Erika the maid arrived daily at around 8 and cleaned all the rooms and did some laundry. A nightwatchman was there from 6pm until 6am. He maintained the garden, cleaned the pool and hung around the pool deck while we slept. They were both pleasant but spoke no English. The outdoor kitchen and pool deck was our living room for the week, from sun up sun down.

We paid $350 for a cook, Andreas. She prepared a great guacamole and salsa for hungry travelers, and had already grocery shopped for the first day's dinner. We sent a menu ideas for the first few days via email, based on the menu available on the beach house website, but this may have been too much detail. Two of us sat with her Sunday morning to develop the menu for the week. She spoke a little English but communication was challenging, and she asked us to be very specific about menu and timing, but offered little guidance. Two of us accompanied her on the one grocery store trip near Tamarindo (we took a taxi). We probably could not have found everything we needed without her! She made some nice meals but I think if we could have communicated more easily, we may have hit upon more of her specialties. The breakfast on the last day, huevos rancheros, was delicious. We have never had someone cook for us and it was a wonderful luxury. Consider suggesting a daily menu of tried and true meals for groups that are the house chef's specialty, and just letting us decide if we want it.

Coco Loco bar and restaurant is literally right next door. Tasty drinks, music and a way to meet new people. We could leave the teens at the house to watch the smaller kids while the parents had a a happy hour cocktail - we could see them on the deck from our bar stools! It was about a 10 minute walk to the Flamingo Beach plaza with Marie's restaurant, an ice cream stand, souvenirs, tour operator and convenience store (this is where we shopped for beer). A car is not necessary at this property but I missed having one. There were many spots a few miles up the road, the beach house restaurant to the Shack to a fruit stand, we would have liked to explore. There were no bike rentals so this wasn't an option. A few beat up taxi's hang out outside Maries, but they get expensive since once they take you somewhere, they need to wait for you to finish to bring you home.

We the People of Virginia--3rd visit

  • 5 of 5
This was our 3rd year renting Casa ? ?. We refer to it as the Beach House Flamingo. It gets better every time we return.

We have made many friends at this house over the years. Some have come and gone that we still stay in contact with, but always the staff is top notch.

Jonas who now manages the property is one of the nicest most knowledgeable people you will ever meet. He now handles everything for the house. He is always just a phone call away.
Also, Jonas is the best tour guide! He can arrange all your excursions from a trip to arenal to a trip to the super market. Or a trip to your favorite watering hole.

You can't beat the location of this house. Coca Loco which has excellent food and drinks is right next door. Its only a short walk to the village for beer, water, etc.. however I would recommend you stock up at one of the larger markets in Tamarindo, because the dude at the market is very expensive and likes to round up on the Colones to US dollar conversion.

Andrea was our cook this year and she was excellent. Her mashed potatoes are off the chart. She is very friendly and we enjoyed talking with her also.

Jose the night watchman was fantastic. Although he speaks little English, I'm certain from our experience he understands more than he speaks. On our last night he built us a bon fire on the beach.

We have looked at other beach houses and considered, but Jonas is what keeps us coming back!!! He is the best.

We have seen many changes in the Beach House Flamingo since our first stay and it just keeps getting better. The main improvements this year: New pool furniture, new linens (very nice quality), Loved the Bose speaker for the pool (had been bringing my own).

Book a trip on the Lazy Lizard catamaran. Wouldn't recommend it on your last night because the drinks flow from the time you leave the marina until you return. If you have to book on your last night pack up before the sunset cruise.

Pura Vida! We shall return!!

A majestic setting with the most amazing staff!

  • 5 of 5
Our family stayed in Casa Playa Blanca the week before Christmas and had the best vacation! Jonas picked us up at the airport right on time and set the tone for the entire vacation. He arranged several excursions for us, including ziplining, boat tours, and catamaran cruise which were all wonderful. The staff at Casa Playa Blanca truly made the trip for us! Roy cooked numerous meals for us, all of which were delicious and tailored to our tastes. Erica was a great housekeeper - very unintrusive yet thorough! Jose kept us safe, kept the pool spotless and also built us a bonfire. The house had all the amenities as described in the posting and was very comfortable. We loved the patio for evening happy hours during the sunset! Can't wait to go back!

Truly Awe Inspiring Sunset Views

  • 5 of 5
What a fantastic property! The group I was with, 20 in all, were split between Casa Playa Blanca and another property. My family had the pleasure of staying the first week here and 5 days at the other house but I wish we would've only stayed at Casa Playa Blanca. Both houses were very nice beach front homes but the combination of the house, staff and location of Casa Playa Blanca was unbeatable! The beach is perfect for all ages with waves big enough for a good boogie board ride and the silkiest sand I've ever had between my toes. It was a great vacation and we can't wait to return to Casa Playa Blanca.

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful two weeks at Casa Playa Blanca – what a perfect location! The prettiest beach around and the best sunsets ever. Having a restaurant (Coco Loco) two doors down was very convenient. Watching the migrating whales from the veranda was an unexpected treat. The staff was all great. Thanks to Carla for her service and for pointing out the iguanas on the pool deck. Thanks to Alvero, especially for the beach bonfire and the Spanish lessons for Shelby and Dylan. Thanks also to Jonas for arranging our ATV tour and for hooking us up with Matteo and the Manta Ray catamaran for the sunset/snorkeling cruise. Everyone should take a cruise on the Manta Ray (we took two!). There are so many things you can do here – hiking, volcanoes, outdoor adventure tours, etc. Or you can choose to just relax and enjoy the beautiful beach and walks around Flamingo. Lastly – Rene. An awesome cook and cooking teacher but so much more. He works exclusively for tips, so one would naturally expect good service, but Rene goes above and beyond expectations at every turn. He is a great ambassador for Costa Rica and this region. He educated us about Costa Rican culture, going so far as to bring different fruits from his home for us to try. His singing and guitar playing were superb. He recommended Ester Perez for massages. She was perfect. He also recommended Vilo, a very personable and wonderful driver, for inexpensive trips to Tamarindo, Rincon de la Vieja, and shopping. We were very lucky to meet Rene, and hope to see him again the next time we come to Casa Playa Blanca in Playa Flamingo.

Casa Playa Blanca is located on the center of Flamingo Beach and is 1/2 mile easy walk from the town of Flamingo.

Once in Flamingo, the road is paved and is your gateway to all other Guanacaste adventures. The little 'local' beach town of Brasilito is 5km away with more nice restaurants and is a real 'Tico' village. Tamarindo is 20-30 minutes away and is a busy surf town with lots of shopping, restaurants, bars and nightlife. From the beach, it's a 1 hour drive to the cities of Liberia or Santa Cruz, 1 1/2 hours to Rincon de la Viejo volcano with waterslides, hot mud baths, thermal springs and much more, 2-2 1/2 hours to the Rainforest and 3 1/2 hours to Arenal Volcano.
