About this villa

The villa was completely reconstructed in 2011 and improved Feruary 2019.
The house is on a rock, 20m above the ocean and has stairs which create a direct access to the famous white sand beach of Flamingo (the real Flamingo beach, also called playa Blanca).

The entire property is very private and protected against prying eyes. Also it is very safe. All buildings are protected by alarm systems and there are cameras mounted all around the property. We never had any problems!

From the terrace one will enjoy wonderful sunsets and if you are a little lucky you can observe wales crossing the bay. One can also enjoy the view from the inside living area. The big European isolated windows keep 99,9% of UV rays outside.

The house also contains a swimming pool, which runs on very little chlorine. Because of the so called “infinity edge” the pool seems as if it is a part of the ocean, making an almost seamless blend between the swimming pool and the water of the ocean, especially when the winds are calm. The pool also has a raised Jacuzzi attached to it, with a waterfall cascading down into the pool, generating a source of calming sound against the thunder of the ocean waves.

The property also contains two double story units, one used as a guestroom. On the wall right next to it, one can sometimes spot the occasional iguana lying in the sun (usually only in the early morning). On the other one a roof access has been built. From there one can enjoy all the beauty that Flamingo has to offer.

The outside terrace also has a big 50+ inch TV, so in the evening (which comes quite early in Costa Rica), one can enjoy such entertainment without being confined to the inside of the house. On the terrace there are also deck chairs for easy sunbathing whenever one feels the need to.

In general, the house is very open. The celling in the living room is around 8 meters high. Almost every room has big windows which can also be used as doors. In this way, one can generate enough airflow to not have to use the AC. This helps with the acclimatization process and will make ones experience of Costa Rica much more enjoyable.

New we did add another bedroom with 2 sleeps in the mainhouse.

This gives advantages to younger children because they can sleep close to their parents.

Now we improved the terrace and the pool. Please see the additional pictures.

The pool was modified, size 10m x 3,5m (33 ft x 11,5ft).

    Vista espectacular

    La vista del atardecer es hermosa! Realmente tiene acceso directo la playa Flamingo, son 185 escalones cómodos. Nuestros hijos (4-9 años) las subieron y bajaron felices camino a la playa. Definitivamente volvería y la recomiendo.

    Pura Vida 2019!!

    The views and privacy from this villa are indescribable, exactly what we were looking for!!! Just returned from our adult children only vacation at Sunset Villa, party of 9! The villa accommodated all in their private area. There were enough bathrooms to not have to share, which is always preferred. We had several days of rain, but it did not discourage the group and we had plenty of time spent in the ocean body surfing. The 160 steps to the beach made for a great finish to a run on the beach, be prepared to take it slow or get winded if not in great shape. There were plenty of restaurants in the area to not have to venture too far, but the drive to Tamarindo (shopping) and a grocery store were also not a problem. Yesenia did a great job taking care of us! She was also able to find Costa Rican chef and caterer to come cook in the house for us, Manuel and Elvian. We couldn't get enough of their cevice. The directions to the villa were excellent! The separate Master Bedroom was a big plus for my husband and I to spend 2 days before the kids arrived. We would definitely recommend this property, and will have a hard time duplicating this experience!

    Amazing Place

    The property was more than we expected. The views, rooms, pool and privacy make this property worth it. There are air conditioners in all the rooms. The property has a main house with two bedrooms, casita by the pool, a room with a bathroom above the garage, a future room with a bathroom above the other garage, a guess house with separate kitchen and living room. There is a laundry room as well. It does have private beach access but there are 186 step. This made it difficult for our parents to walk up. However, the beach is a two minute drive. The internet service was a little slow without 2.4 or 5 GHz modem/router. Not a big deal just made it difficult when two or three people were trying to plan daily activities on the internet. Finding the place wasn't to hard. You will cross over a bridge then as you past Grill and Chill take the first right up the hill. Then look for the wall with an arch entry as you drive up the hill on the left. probably 0.2 of a mile after you turned right. If you google map Margaritaville the property is north of it right next door to Villa la Sata. I would recommend this place to anyone and would stay at this house again.

    This house is beautiful, great view and amazing location. Playa flamingo is very relaxed and calm beach..... you can walk to the beach and to restaurants. Rent a car if you want to see other beaches as cabs get expensive ...... The house is amazing , Yesenia the cleaning lady is very helpful and attentive. We had a little issue with the dish washer , and WiFi, But we made the best of it ...... owner is very accommodating......

    WoWwW! A Very Special Place!

    All I can say is WowWww. What a place. Amazing location and amazing hospitality from the owners of the property. We had the time of our lives. You will never see a better sunset anywhere. This is a very special place. A little slice of paradise. Just the right setting with the stairway to heaven down to the BEACH! (which truly is heaven on earth!) Also the help there (Carlos & Yesenia) were amazing. House was always clean and for a few extra bucks Carlos made us some incredible Costa Rican home cooked meals! there are not enough stars in the review.. 10 stars would be more like it!
