Atop the hills of Playa Flamingo sit the luxury condos at Sunset Heights. With a 24-hour fitness center, two breathtaking ocean-view pools, and white sand beaches just steps away, this open-concept unit truly has it all!

In addition to providing a unique and beautiful place to stay, we've set up a great local network, who work with us to help ensure that your Costa Rica 'dream vacation' becomes a reality! After your booking comes through, we'll email you a detailed confirmation, complete with all you need to know about the condo and area - including the contact info for our AMAZING 24/7 property manager, as well as our 'Travel & Tour Concierge,' who can get you the best deals on airport shuttles, tours, and so much more (including luxuries like in-suite or pool-deck massages from licensed massage therapists!).

As for the area, Playa Flamingo is often described as the 'Beverly Hills' of Costa Rica. With white sand beaches, great restaurants, beautiful scenery, and no need for a car - this condo rental is ideally situated, no matter what you're looking for in your Costa Rica adventure!

Aside form the excellent on-site amenities in our building, renters of this unit - depending on the time of year - may also enjoy free entry to the luxurious Flamingo Beach Resort & Spa (a 4-minute walk away) and the Flamingo Marina Resort (directly across the street). Again, this bonus is subject to resort space and availability, of course, and the Flamingo Beach Resort & Spa recommends that our guests call in advance, in order to ensure that resort entry is available for the day/week (direct phone number will be provided in your booking confirmation email). While you're on the phone with the Flamingo Beach Resort, be sure to inquire about the their 'Amenity Use' and 'All-Inclusive' day plans, exclusively for our guests at Sunset Heights!

NOTE: You can enter the Flamingo Marina Resort (again - across the street from our building) at any time, with no need for reservation or advance call. There may be a small fee charged for use of the pool or tennis courts, etc., but entry to the bar and/or restaurant is free.

These resort connections are, definitely, a nice added bonus, but with the condo having TWO amazing ocean-view pools, a 24-7 updated fitness center, free laundry facilities, and easy access to ALL of Flamingo's best beaches, restaurants, and bars - you'll find that our condo offers all the resort-style amenities you need - and is the private oasis you want!

Unit 201 at Sunset Heights features a large, open, and bright layout. The single, over-sized hotel style bedroom comfortably contains both a King & Queen bed, as well as two armoires, a sofa, walk-in closet, and plenty of room to spare.

The large 'Jack & Jill' bathroom, features his and her sinks, an over-sized jetted tub, as well as ocean and mountain views from the shower.

The open living area includes another high quality queen sofa-bed, a fully-equipped kitchen (granite counter-tops and dishwasher), as well as large eat-in areas, including a breakfast bar and separate dining table with plenty of seating. The LED flat-screen TV (with built-in DVD), loads of great movie titles, free WiFi, and free unlimited calling to the U.S. & Canada make Unit 201 at Sunset Heights your true 'home away from home!'

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 10 day stay at the condo. The condo had all the comforts of home. My 2 kids ages 6 and 8, husband and I enjoyed the 2 pools and the gym. It was also nice to be able to do laundry after almost 2 weeks of traveling around Costa Rica. Playa Flamingo is centrally located and all the other small towns and beautiful neighboring beaches are a short drive away. The owner and property manager were delightful and prompt to reply to any inquiries. We enjoyed the restaurants that are walking distance away: Marie's, Coco Loco and Angelina's but we also loved being able to make our meals in the condo. My kids enjoyed the movies the condo provided as well as the games (I even read one of the books in the condo). We also appreciated being able to call our family in California, what a nice treat! Thanks Zuby for making your condo available for others to enjoy and feel right at home.

Owner's Response: Dear Jennifer and Family, Thanks, so much, for your kind words and excellent review. It, truly, makes us happy to know that families enjoy the condo in the same way that we do with our children. We and Saioa all work very hard to make sure our guests have a great vacation, so your praise and satisfaction, really, mean a great deal. Thanks, again, for booking a stay with us, Jennifer! You were a pleasure to host and we hope that our paths will cross again, should you make your way back to this beautiful area. Pura Vida, Zuby, Natasha, & Family

Relaxing retreat in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, son and I had a wonderful stay in Playa Flamingo. This unit was very roomy, clean and well maintained. The condo was very nicely decorated and it quickly felt like home with the added touches of local art, colourful floral arrangements, games and books in the condo. The views from the living room and bed room are amazing. There is no deck, however the pool is steps away so our morning coffee and reading were enjoyed there. The complex is very quiet so there is no stress about getting a deck chair. The second pool, also with beautiful ocean views, was also a nice retreat from the sun as it was in the shade in the afternoon. We spent many nights enjoying the sunsets from the pool deck and chatting with other vacationers who were all very friendly. The ocean breezes made the temperatures comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped with modern appliances, cookware, utensils and even spices so we could enjoy dining in from time to time. When we arrived we even had coffee waiting for us. We also appreciated the beach towels and boogie boards supplied by the condo owners. Boogie boarding and body surfing were our daily past times at Playa Flamingo. Shade was easy to find as there are many trees along the beach. This condo is in a great location: Playa Flamingo and Playa Potrero are both a five minute walk, as well as Marie's, Angelina's and Coco Locos restaurants (Cocos being our favourite for lunches, dinners and drinks on the beach at a good price), a plaza with tours, souvenirs, pharmacy and smoothie stand. There is also a convenience store across the street from the condo and a larger grocery store about a 25 minute walk away. Playa Flamingo is a very safe area. The locals are very friendly and helpful in giving directions. We used the local transit to go to many of the small townships (Bresilito, Haucas). The bus pick up is about a 2 minute walk. We also recommend visiting Tamarindo for surfing lessons. The staff at Sunset Heights were very friendly and worked hard to keep the gounds clean and maintained. The condo manager (Saoia) was excellent. She even had a hand drawn map of the area prepared for us upon our arrival and spent time gong over it with us so we felt right at home from the moment we arrived. Every time we had a question both she and the owner (Zuby) were quick to respond. While planning this trip Zuby was very helpful and was very easy to get a hold of. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you for sharing this gem

A jumbo-sized condo with every amenity we needed, and perfectly convenient!

  • 5 of 5

Even though we've been to more than 60 countries and hundreds of cities, towns and villages all over the world, this was one of the very best vacations of our lives. And this marvelous condo was the linchpin of our month-long enjoyment. My wife and I sort of knew even before we got to Playa Flamingo and Sunset Heights that this visit would be outstanding, especially because of the owners, Zuby and Natasha. A lovely Canadian couple, they were awesome in making sure our stay in their condo would be as it turned out: absolutely great. Despite its being a 1-bedroom, a perfect size for my wife and me, we easily could have accommodated another three or four people to stay with us. The apartment and grounds were spotless, the appliances up-to-date, and there was an overabundance of kitchen utensils for cooking and serving. Walking to one of two local beaches was easy; the local restaurants -- all within walking distance -- were outstanding; the Costa Ricans we met were warm and friendly, as were the guests staying at Sunset Heights and the condo complex next door. If you don't speak Spanish, no problema. Almost everyone in town speaks English. If you have enough time, visit some other gorgeous beaches in the area, and don't forget Tamarindo, a busy but laid-back surfing town just a 25-minute drive from Flamingo.

Despite the high temperatures, there always seemed to be a breeze to cool things down, and the humidity remained low. And it never rained. Not even a drop.

Saioa (Sigh-oh-ah), the property manager, is a gem. Not only caring and immeasurably helpful, her energy makes one think she operates on Gatorade infused with steroids. She's the absolute best to be found anywhere. Whatever we needed and whenever we needed it, she was there with a smile.

Having a telephone in the condo and being able to make local and long-distance calls complimentary was a big plus, as was having the free laundry a few steps down the hallway.

For breakfast or lunch, try the Soup Box, a relatively new spot 5 minutes from the condo by car. And there's an abundance of excellent Italian spots, including Tubla, our favorite.

We felt sad leaving such a beautiful spot and vowed to return in the not-too-distance future. No doubt we will ask friends and family to join us when we return so that they, too, can experience a unique and marvelous place.

Owner's Response: Dear Ron & Gail, Thank-you, so much, for the heartfelt and thoughtful response. We, also, knew that you would be great guests and a pleasure to host from very early on in the process. We couldn't be more pleased to know that your stay in Flamingo was everything you hoped it would be (and hopefully more). We purchased this condo with guests in mind, so your kind words about our unit and the convenience of its location really mean a great deal to us. With regard to Saioa - we know! She's, without question, the best at what she does and is an absolute whirlwind (maybe we will have her Gatorade tested...loved that line!). We're lucky to have her...as are our guests! So, thanks again, from all of us, Ron & Gail...we truly hope to have you both with us, again, some day. Sincerely, Zuby, Natasha, & family

Great stay at a wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic condo! We had only 4 nights to enjoy this amazing condo, but we made the most of our short time and enjoyed everything that the condo and its affiliated complexes had to offer. The initial communication with the owner and the property manager was prompt, helpful and extremely attentive, as was the check-in and follow-up from Saioa, who was super helpful with anything we may have required. The condo itself is great…having absolutely everything one needed in a clean, spacious and well appointed condo. Great kitchen (with all that one would need to cook for themselves), a great comfy living room, a lovely large bathroom with huge jetted tub, an extremely large bedroom with a very comfortable king (& queen bed, sofa & walk-in closet), great A/C in the entire condo, a good selection of movies, good wifi, free calls to Canada, and super close access to the laundry facilities (immediately next door). We were so comfortable in the condo that one could easily spend a a lengthy time there and if not for the amazing beach and surrounding area, we would have! Playa Flamingo is a beautiful white sand beach, has great restaurants (especially Coco Loco on the beach) and is within close distance to other great areas. There is a good grocery store (actually more than one) just a short, inexpensive cab ride away…avoid the one next to the condo unless in urgent need of replenishment. The condo also has a great pool with an awesome view, and while the condo does have its own gym (also immediately next door), it's extremely hot and the equipment is old and limited, so you're best to use the one at the resort (to which you have full access with your stay). The gym at the resort is air conditioned and has a newer, more extensive selection of equipment. The resort also has a fantastic pool and swim up bar! There are also all kinds of activities available at the resort, or in the area. This condo is a perfect place to just stay to get away from it all, or use as a base for exploring more sites in Costa Rica. We definitely recommend this condo and can't wait to return!!! Thank you so much for an amazing stay at your place in paradise!!! We loved it!

Owner's Response: Dear Julie! Thanks so much for staying with us! We pride ourselves on our response time and attentiveness to guests, so your praise of our communication (and overall efforts to make your stay as amazing as possible) are greatly appreciated. We're so glad that you enjoyed Playa Flamingo and all it has to offer - we are convinced that it's the best place to visit in Costa Rica and, as you said, is the best 'jumping off point' to explore other attractions and locations around this magnificent country. Thanks, again, for choosing to stay with us. You were a pleasure to deal with and we truly look forward to having you with us again soon! Sincerely, Zuby, Natasha, & Family

Fantastic view of 2 beaches, and Sunrise & Sunset. Clean quiet and convenient.

  • 5 of 5

The manager is wonderful. Saioa was punctual meeting us and clued us in to all the best places and best guides. All her help was spot on. The condo was very well laid out and the furnishings were very comfortable. full convenient kitchen with everything you need to feel at home. The properties pool was set to catch the sunsets over Playa Flamingo. An additional bonus was the cards to give you access to the resort down on the beach with a bigger pool and other amenities. We stopped at Pliamar Restaurant on the way in to meet Saioa where the owner was so welcoming with great food and good prices. Also enjoyed Playa Conchal, lovely beach and Cafe Pescado in Brasilito. With this condo you can explore the area in comfort. Definitely do the Panache Catamaran tour!

Awesome place, great amenities, highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

I spent 4 days at this apartment with my two boys and we loved it!, it VERY close to Flamingo Beach, and the condo is even better than in the pics, the owners had two buggies for the kids or adults, the condo has ample space and the beds are comfortable, it has all the amenities you could possibly need, and it was mint clean, and with the rental we got access to the hotel, which made staying there even better, because at the hotel you'll be provided with beach towels, beach chairs (if you choose to go to the beach), access to the hotel pools and restaurants, the hotel is steps away from the beach, we had a blast and I highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for the kind words, Kelvin! We were happy to hear that you and your boys had a great stay with us. We like to make sure that guests have the 'little extras' which ensure a great vacation & stay, so we were especially happy to hear that you made use of and enjoyed some of the perks our condo has to offer. We hope that we'll see you all again, soon, Kelvin...thanks, again, for booking with us! Sincerely, Zuby, Natasha, & Family
