Ocean & Mountain Views, Just Steps Away From The White Sands Of Playa Flamingo

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!'

Best Location!!!

  • 5 of 5

Everything went amazingly smooth. The list of locals to assist us in our visit was very helpful. We loved Playa Flamingo and were very happy we choose this area over Taminrindo. The condo was perfect for the two of us and is just as described. We did not have a car so we did a lot of walking and using locals to drive us around. It was great having locals to drive us as they know where the hidden treasures are! Rigo arranged Rolando to drive us. He was AMAZING!!! We felt very comfortable with his driving and he was very friendly. We enjoyed Cocoa Loca on the beach for a sunset dinner, Marie's and Angelina's in the Plaza!!!! Also if you enjoy running or walking, we suggest turning right at the bottom of the hill, go along the gravel road along Flamingo beach, then there are some neighborhoods up the hills that have beautiful homes!!!!! Great hill run!

Owner's Response: Thanks, so much, for the kind words, Jennifer! We purchased this property (and set up great local connections & contacts) with renters in mind, so your praise is truly appreciated. We're, also, glad that you loved the central and convenient location of the condo, because, while we're in the heart of Flamingo, we don't have all the noise you might find in a busier/louder town, like Tamarindo. It's always nice to stay in a relaxing place where you don't need a rental car, either! It was our pleasure to host you, Jennifer, and we hope to see you back with us, again, soon one day. Thanks, again, for staying with us...and for the great review. Pura Vida! Zuby, Natasha, & family

Flamingo Beach Costa Rica Feb 2017

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean! It was walking distance to restaurants, convenience store, and the beautiful Flamingo Beach. This was our anniversary trip, and we were very pleased about the condo and the area. We walked the beach every morning, and relaxed in the afternoon. The beach itself was nice and quiet, with some room for shade. We also went on an evening sailing trip with Serendipity, and went whitewater rafting on the Tenorio River, what an adventure! The Condo manager Saioa, was very helpful with transportation from and to the airport, and with suggestions for restaurants and activities.

Fantastic end to our honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I traveled to Costa Rica for our honeymoon. We ended our two week trip at the beautiful Playa Flamingo! Zuby and Natasha were so easy to work with through email, making sure everything was perfect for our stay. They got us in contact with Saioa, the property manager (who was waiting for us at the apartment when we arrived!), and Rigo, their "tour and trip concierge". The apartment was clean, spacious, and very welcoming. We instantly felt like we were at home! We loved the two pools (especially the pool looking over the ocean!) and the outside showers (to wash off all the beach sand!). The apartment was equipped with everything one may need. We were thrilled to have beach towels!!! The apartment is a short walk (5min) to the beach and a close walk to so many good restaurants! When you arrive in Playa Flamingo you will instantly be in the pura vida mindset - it's relaxing, beautiful, quiet, and welcoming. Make sure you do the Lazy Lizard sunset cruise and have the coconut ice cream at Coco Loco!

We can't wait to come visit again:)

Owner's Response: Hi Elizabeth, We're so glad that your Costa Rica vacation and the condo was everything you dreamed of, and more! We pride ourselves on great communication and service, because we're travelers, too - and know just how frustrating it is to wait for a response, or even, know if you're booking reached a real person, etc. So - thanks for the kind words about our service and the 'little extras' we include...we believe they really make the difference between a decent trip and a GREAT one! Rigo and Saioa are amazing, aren't they? That's why we wanted to have them work with us; because they're the BEST at what they do and they - like us - truly care about each and every guest they meet. Thanks, again, for staying with us, Elizabeth (and the kind words)...and we hope our paths cross again. Pura Vida! Zuby, Natasha, & family

Our Visit in November

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property! Our unit was beautifully maintained, and well equipped with fresh, brand-new towels, lots of kitchen items, and comfortable beds. It was pleasantly decorated and very clean - we were most impressed and would visit this property again!We were 5 minutes from the beautiful Playa Flamingo beach and were able to use the Flamingo Resort pool and amenities. We really enjoyed La Cuchara Verde for casual breakfasts and dinner - they are a very "green" kitchen and you can tell everything is made with love - which they advertise! For a more high-end dinner we visited Angelina's a couple of times - amazing food and service. For daytime fun make your way down the beach to Coco Loco's for a great beach-bar and restaurant. The location of this property allows you to take long walks along the beach and a beautiful view. Thank you!

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
