About Daphne and Jim Nicholson

Hello and welcome, Daphne and Jim Nicholson have owned in Costa Rica since 2003 with properties in Playa Conchal (listing 79667) and Potrero in addition to Flamingo (Jim's favourite!) We live in Vancouver, Canada and fell in love with the Costa Rican people, scenery, wildlife, and of course the beautiful weather of Guanacaste. Through our many trips Daphne has become a recognized expert in helping our guests maximize their Costa Rican adventure, and would love to help you and your families make the most of your time in this beautiful country. Here is an excerpt of a comment from a recent guest at the this condo...'When we arrived we were speechless to have found such a beautiful condo. Everything about our experience was perfect: To start, the owners are very friendly and provided great information.' Our condo is equipped with the comforts we would expect when we travel so you will find high quality linens, a fully equipped kitchen, comfortable furniture, beds all with a designers flair, and little extras like big fluffy beach towels for your enjoyment. We look forward to speaking with you about our condo and sharing the things we have come to love about Costa Rica. Please give us a call.

Daphne and Jim Nicholson purchased this condo in 2007

Why Daphne and Jim Nicholson chose Guanacaste

We bought this condo because we love the water and the views. This particular unit is amazing in that upon opening the door to the unit your look straight through the living room out to nothing but ocean, where daily the beautiful sunsets occur right in front of you..it is amazing! We can walk down the driveway and within steps we are on one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. Restaurants, grocery stores and a pharmacy are a short walk away for your added convenience. The property is also very secure as staffed 24 hours per day by a friendly guard staff who are eager to help.

What makes this condo unique

As our guest you are entitled to access the nearby facilities of the Flamingo Marina Resort. Please ask us about other unique offers and that we provide for our guests.

Guestbook comments from the owner

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago for a stay in August 2015

When we started researching condo rentals in the Playa Flamingo area, we found lots of choices. My cousin, who lives in Playa Flamingo suggested we look at this condo. Glad he pointed us this direction. The stay was perfect. Its located on the third floor with beach front views, nice sized patio, two large bedrooms, in perfect condition. Beautifully furnished and stocked with everything you would need. Want to go boogie boarding? There are boogie boards. Want to blend up papaya drinks? Great blender, great glassware, wonderful assortment of cooking pots and pans. Great beds, great linens and towels, great A/C. CLEAN. Pride of ownership shows. All I can say is that our stay there was PERFECT.

This beautiful condo has everything you need and more. Such an awesome view having coffee and breakfast on the balcony. Not to mention the sunsets as well. Thank you for allowing us to stay for our short duration here before moving over to our families property.

Amazing place with Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Costa Rica was great! Your condo in Oceanica was one of the reasons we had such a wonderful time. Oceanica is close to all the things we did and wanted to do there. We loved the beach, restaurants, sailing, snorkeling, hanging out by the pool, and meeting great people. We were pleasantly surprised by the great food! Thanks for all your recommendations! We will definitely be back.

A true paradise

  • 5 of 5

We loved Oceanica! It was even better than it appeared! The condo is absolutely beautiful and incredibly comfortable. It is well apportioned with everything we needed including beach towels and beach chairs. Flamingo Beach is the most gorgeous beach we have ever visited. The restaurants are great and available water activities are terrific. Daphne provided recommendations that were helpful and accurate. Daphne also called to check on us. It was very thoughtful! I can't wait to come back!

Great Location and Condo

  • 5 of 5

My wife(Patty) and I just return from our stay at Flamingo Beach-Feb 11th thru Feb 18th. This was our third trip to Flamingo but first stay at this property. It was exactly as advertised. If you like sitting on the balcony and watching the sunset, this is the place for you. The beach is just down the hill and if you have a car-which I recommend-there are several other great beaches near by. Jim and Daphne called when we first arrived just to see if we had any questions. They were very helpful. We plan to stay again next year.

What a spot!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, Playa Flamingo is beautiful. The beach is amazing! It was just what we were looking for in Costa Rica. Daphne and Jim's condo at Oceanica is exactly as described! I don't think we could have been more comfortable. Everything is pristine and it is a very safe place as well. Daphne was most helpful in answering all of our questions. She even booked an excursion, called us when we arrived and set us up with a car rental and exact directions from Liberia to the condo. A car is very necessary in Playa Flamingo. The condo complex is on a large hill and walking up from the beach with chairs would be a challange at the end of the day without a car. The sunsets were gorgeous! We did not need to go to any restaurant until after the sunset. It was so beautiful having our own private sunset on the balcony.

We dined out almost every night. You must eat at Coco Loco on the beach. Marie's was fun and delicious as well. Angelina's food was excellent, but if you don't order drinks, the service ceases to exist (sadly).

We had a great time at Playa Conchal beach. Its great for snorkeling. The Lazy Lizard was a blast, but the snorkeling was not great. I still recommend it.

We went on a river boat ride in Palo Verde on the Tempisque River and Jose was our guide. We saw lots of monkeys and crocodiles and truly enjoyed the day. Tamarindo was fun to walk around, but you really don't need to go there. Playa Flamingo was perfect! If you are hesitant, don't be. You will love this condo and the area!

PS~ One suggestion, go to the super markets on your way from the airport, don't wait until you get to Playa Flamingo. The local ones don't have much to offer, but the larger Markets are great.

Situated on the country’s Gold Coast, Playa Flamingo is located in Punta Salinas, northwest of Bahia Brasilito, 75 km southwest of Liberia. Located in between the beaches of Playa Potrero and Playa Brasilito, Playa Flamingo or Flamingo Beach is the sole full-service marina between Acapulco and Panama on the Pacific coast of Central America.

This condo has wireless internet

Other Activities: ATV, Zip Lining, Canopy Tours

Golf: Nearby, for the golfing enthusiast is also an 18-hole championship golf course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr. This course is located at the Reserva Conchal Resort facility and reservations can be made by contacting the Pro shop.
