Overview

About the property

Brand new remodeled 2 BR condo in the 4th floor with best views in the area

The best view in the Costa Rican Guanacaste area awaits you. Perched on a beachfront hill, this condo provides you with a spectacular view of Flamingo Cove, the beautifully isolated Loros Island, the Marina, and a luscious green belt. Close proximity to the ocean and surrounding greenery allows you to hear the serenity of crashing waves and to witness different types of wildlife such as monkeys and a large variety of tropical birds.

The condo is part of the Flamingo Towers complex, which is located in the town of Flamingo. The condo is situated on the south end of the fourth floor allowing for the best vista the building has to offer (aside from the penthouses). Being the first unit on the fourth floor also means that the condo has a neighboring unit only on one side instead of both, offering added views and less noise for a more quiet, relaxed, and romantic setting.

Fully furnished and decorated by an interior designer, this condo offers the ultimate in style, comfort, and space. Living room seats 6 comfortably, has access to the back balcony and has a TV (Blu-ray, DVD, laptop compatible) with Cable service. Kitchen features granite counter tops and comes fully stocked with silverware and dishes as well as all appliances including microwave, stove, oven, coffee maker, and stainless steel fridge and dishwasher. Dinner table comes with all tableware and seats 4. There is also a bar that seats 3. There are 2 rooms, one of which is the master that has a king sized bed with floor to ceiling windows that also serve as sliding doors leading out to the back balcony. The second room is equipped with a full sized bed and floor to ceiling windows that have access to the front balcony. Both rooms have their own separate bathrooms that offer views of the beach and greenbelt. There is an additional bathroom near the entrance of the condo that can be used for guests. Both the front and the back balconies are very ample and spacious. The front balcony provides a view of the Marina and surrounding mountains while the back balcony provides a view of Isla Loros, Playa Brasilito, Playa Potrero, and Playa Conchal, as well as magnificent ocean sunsets every night. A brand new central AC unit, Wi-Fi, tiled floors, washer/dryer, towels, and linens are all additional amenities that are provided. Maid service will also be provided before, during (once a week), and after your stay. This service will be covered in your rental costs.

Additionally, the Flamingo Towers complex also offers 2 infinity-edge pools that are free to use for all owners and rentals. The building is further equipped with 2 elevators allowing for easy mobility, covered parking for every unit, and a 24/7 guard service that keeps watch of the building. There is also a manager present and on call everyday should you require any assistance during your stay.

Though relatively isolated, this condo is less than a 10 minute drive away from the towns of Flamingo and Brasilito and the following beaches:

-Playa Conchal (the best beach in the area)

-Playa Brasilito

-Playa Flamingo

Absolutely fantastic

  • 5 of 5

Couldn't be happier with our decision to stay here. Wonderful condo, well appointed, with stunning views of the Pacific. Very large balcony facing the ocean, and another on the opposite side facing the hills. All the amenities were ample (towels, dishes, coolers, body-boards). Nice to have toaster, coffee maker, and washer and dryer available at any time. Though you shouldn't be in the condo a lot, WIFI was terrific. Central air provided comfort at night.

Location is great with plenty of options close by in either direction. Tons of dining options within ten minutes. Many local grocery stores (not "American" in size, but enough options to stay happy). Property is isolated enough at the top of a hill that you would rarely hear a car/four-wheeler/motorbike, unless you are sitting on the balcony facing the hills. If you want to venture to Tamarindo (which we found to be somewhat of a waste) it's less than 45 minutes away.

While you may be able to walk to the beach (Brasilito), we took the car (less than five minute drive down the hill). Multiple great beach options within 10m (Conchal, Flamingo Beach) and Playa Grande (big waves) is about 20m away. If the beach isn't your thing, there are two on-property pools to choose from.

Parking is covered, "below" the building. Access to the fourth floor property is available via elevator or stairs. The only potential concern some may have would be security. I believe the listing stated security on site, and while there is a security booth, we never saw a guard during our six day stay. That being said, we NEVER felt unsafe, the property is in a great area, with no evidence to be concerned for personal safety. But if you're expecting a gated property, this isn't it.

We loved our time here (2nd visit to CR), and we will absolutely rent this condo (or another in the property) again. Not sure how anyone could be disappointed with their decision to rent this unit.

Beautiful Location!

Absolutely stunning views! We didn’t want to leave Flamingo Towers. Our favorite was watching the sunset from the balcony and pools. Thank you for a great stay!

Views were amazing.

  • 2 of 5

We loved the location of the condo. The master bed was very comfortable. We used our unit as a place to sleep. There wasn’t much effort put forward to show the owners are aware of what people might need and enjoy. It felt like an adequate rental instead of a ocrean front paradise. The coffee cups didn’t match and had a winter pine / Christmas design instead of a cute beach theme. Some of the dishes were dirty. No beach towels or beach chairs or hairdryer. Old magazines for light cooking instead of trip ideas for CR We just didn’t feel like they really cared. From reading the guestbook, the owners do love the unit but I don’t feel my taste is the same as theirs. It felt inexpensive and just the minimum instead of consulting with a decorator. The storage closet had soap just on the floor. No shelves. No cupboards. No tv in the bedrooms. It was fine. Just fine. But when you’ve stayed at prettier places, you know when people have just done an ok job. Not bad. Just okay. Our friends stayed in the unit below us and if it hadn’t been for their unit we would have been disappointed with our vacation. The owners of their unit really put some effort into decorating and outfitting it with everything and anything to make it home. Beach towels, chairs, candles, chaise lounges on the patio, sunshades,pretty glassware, hair dryers. You name their unit had it. Beautiful coffee table books on CR, Spanish language books. The place was gorgeous! Tv in every bedroom. Pretty artwork, specialized wall paint. We just stayed with them all the time and felt sooo sad to leave CR. We ate dinner on their patio. Overall our trip was a 10 but not because of our unit. Our unit could be 5 stars with more touches for the guests. New dishes, new glassware, lounge chairs, beach towels and chairs, etc. nicer artwork, TVs in bedrooms, storage for cleaning items, just a once over with what would make it go from good to great. Not trying to be uncaring. But when you’ve seen excellent it is hard to feel really pleased with satisfactory.

Owner's Response: Dear Lynn: Thank you for your "critical eye" towards details. As you stated : "From reading the guestbook, the owners do love the unit but I don’t feel my taste is the same as theirs." They will be disappointed that you found their interior decorator's taste not to your liking.

Wow is all I will say

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to the office to the office to check in and get the keys and ee emded up getting escorted to our condo to show us around. Once we settled in we went out on the balcony and just sat there looking out over the beach and the ocean. We ended up having Miguel come in to cook us dinner the first night. All I will say is we went out to dinner at beach restaurants and we ended up eating on the balcony more. The reason I say this is because having happy hour watching the sunset and being served dinner on the balcony, we had the best view period. I would highly recommend this unit and more importantly plan on using one of the chefs they recommend because you will find out that eating dinner on the balcony is the best table on the coast. There is no restaurant with anything even close.

The unit itself was very well appointed with granite counters and tile floors and the rooms are well laid out.

Worth every dollar.
