Good place and what you see is what you get

  • 4 of 5

we all love the house, it has everything you need, it will have 5 stars if:

-the pump worked perfect, we have some issues with water ( which we understand because it is a Guanacaste problem) but the pump was spitting and that scared us, it took 2 days to fix it

-they were some alive and death chip in the shower and the floor, I understand because we are a tropical country, but it was not nice to see them.

-the house could has some beach chairs to take it with you and a cooler ( we of course have our owns but if you are not from CR, they could help you

the rest: it has everything you need to cook!

Owner's Response: Hi Melisa, Since you have left we have a brand new BBQ, deck chairs and pump for the reserve tank, the municipal water is very reliable and we hardly ever have to use the reserve tank so we were not aware the pump wasn't working properly.Thanks for the nice review, please come stay again soon Greg

Beautiful view, relaxing, great area

  • 5 of 5

We found the area of Flamingo Beach charming. The location of the house, Casa Borang is exceptional, perched above Protrero Bay, with an amazing view. The private beach has a little cove protecting the beach are. the house is very nice, and Mary, the housekeeper, arrived 3 times a week and accommodated our requests to wash bedding and towels over our 10 day stay. The house and patio are decorated nicely and with the official-shore Breeze, there is plenty of space for relaxing and reading. There is sufficient private space for vationing with another couple. There are a few quirky things for such a nice house, mismatched and burned out light bulbs, the steps to the beach are rickety, but it looks like they are systematically changing them out. The outdoor bar-b-que area was run down, we wouldn't want to cook food there. The air conditioner units in the dining and living room don't have controls, so not sure if they work. They could use a lot of freshening to make the house a much nicer vacation home. Would I recommend this house to others?definitely! Would I stay here again? We can't wait to return!

Beautiful location!

  • 4 of 5

Great view, lots of room in the home. Cleaning person very nice. Kitchen and bathroom could use some updating. Lighting could be improved as well. Carport not usable for compact car. Very quiet and peaceful place.

Awesome Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from 7 days at Casa Borang and had a wonderful time. The owner was responsive before and during the trip with our questions. The maid was very thorough and worked with us so that we hardly knew she was there. We enjoyed the wildlife outside including the geckos, iguanas, birds, butterflies, and fireflies (first time we had ever seen them). The beach below is very private and the snorkeling was excellent - as good as the snorkeling the catamaran trip takes you to go see. We saw many fish, eels, and scallops.

Kitchen was well-stocked with pans and implements and we cooked around 70% of our meals there. There is a small store within a two minute drive and a fully stocked store within five minutes. Wifi was down initially due to a lightning storm but quickly fixed. The driveway is a bit steep so we parked on the street and walked down. The home is also close to a center where you can book excursions and there is an excellent restaurant, Marias. We highly recommend the house.

Amazing Place, "Help" needs Help

  • 3 of 5

This place would have gotten 5 stars easy if it weren't for the terrible help. I understand maids want to get in early and clean to get on with their day, however 7 am every other morning is a little inconvenient when trying to relax.

We would wake up most mornings to find our things swept from the top porch onto the ground bellow.

The final day was the worst. Waking up to someone sitting on the patio unannounced is a little unnerving. We had informed them in Spanish and English that we were leaving at 11 on our final day. Trying to pack and get ready for the return trip while someone is moving things around is almost impossible. She also lets you know that you are an inconvenience to her, slamming dishes, on the house phone, moving items. We were completely out of the downstairs portion of the house around 9:30, if she wanted to start the lower level. This was not the case. She remained upstairs stomping and pouting.

I MUST SAY, the house is amazing, pool, view, bathrooms, and the location is great. Close to Tamarindo, Playa Flamingo, and Brosolitos. There is also a small convenience store right down the road. We were all very satisfied with the stay over all. The maid just needs to be replaced.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the input about our maid. We will make sure from now on that she doesn't come before 11am to clean for future guests. Greg

Vacation to Pura Vita

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfectly set up for us. Kitchen had everything you could want to cook with and nice new fridge and stove. Also loved the new coffee machine maker amazing. Staff was very helpful and kept house and grounds in great condition. The Wifi was very fast and made communication super easy. The TOTAL TV package was great. AC in all areas including each bedroom, which have separate A/C’s.

Pool was amazing crystal clean and the views are outstanding. The beach bellow was the best on a low tide and super private we had a lot of fun climbing the steps back up Outdoor grill is nice under the tiki hut with a fridge so we grilled out most nights and and chilled on the deck watching the stars The location is great as it is tucked away and in a secure area. The directions are really easy to get there.

Watch the bump at the bottom of the road

You won't regret booking at Casa Borang. Owner was great to deal with and responded quickly each time we reached out to him.
