About This Listing
Situated in an alcove near the tip of the prestigious Northridge peninsula of Playa Flamingo where the Flamingo Bay is your front yard and the WHITE SANDY BEACH of Flamingo is your play ground, we welcome you to our hide-a-way in paradise. Our home which is named CASA DE SERENIDAD is aptly named for the tranquility and serenity one feels when here. We have 2 other vacation rentals of which can be seen on our extended (email hidden).
To enhance your vacation with us, there is a decadent small wading pool with 2 hammocks positioned over the pool where you can be partially submerged and can relax, and enjoy the gorgeous scenery. If you are a fitness buff, we have a fully equipped gymnasium including a wet sauna and dry sauna for your use. We also have a small infinity pool with lounging chairs next to the rancho/BBQ. You won't need to bring your beach towels with you because we offer towels for your use during your stay with us. Laundry facilities are available with soap provided, too!
Snorkeling during high tide is an favored option while you are already there. To go exploring, we offer the use of a 2 person sit on top ocean kayak for FREE!
Playa Flamingo is 1 km from our property so we are in walking distance to the beach. There are great restaurants in town at the LA PLAZA Commercial Center and on the way down the hill towards town. Each of the local hotels have restaurants as other options s well.
We request that you respect our property overall, be courteous and respectful of the other renters who are here to enjoy their vacation as well. We request that any music you bring you use ear phones so the noise will not bother other people. We prefer that you do not smoke inside any of the units and that if you must smoke, please do so outside being mindful of others around you.
Our place is one of relaxation and tranquility and we enjoy meeting each of you and spending time when convenient for both. We live on site and can assist you with any of your needs, recommendations, reservations, suggestions, transportation needs, and more. Please just ask us!
We spent three nights at Babe's Ocean Front Villa. It is an absolutely beautiful place with a gorgeous view of the Playa Flamingo bay. The Villa is large and very comfortable. The balcony is wonderful to sit and have a drink while overlooking the beautiful bay. Babe and husband Don are wonderful hosts. We would definitely stay here again.
Babe's Villa was perfect! Plenty of room and the views were amazing every day. We enjoyed all the amenities including the hammocks over the pool, the pool, the kayak, snorkeling, private beach, and bbq. The only thing we didn't take advantage of was the gym but I guess that is ok when you are on holiday. We also got private massages in the room which was very reasonably priced and by far one of the best massages we have either had! So good, in fact, that we booked second ones before we left.
I highly recommend Babe's for anyone going to Costa Rica who wants to relax and have access to amazing beaches with great hospitality. Thank you Babe!
This was an amazing place to stay in Playa Flamingo. Babe and her husband were wonderful at making us feel genuinely welcome and were a wealth of local knowledge. We enjoyed the Ocean Front Villa accommodation which provided an amazing view and very luxurious stay. We ate out most days, but the full kitchen and BBQ provided more options and was very convenient for preparing breakfast. The hammocks on the top level were fantastic to enjoy the cool breeze during the evening. The sea kayak was a lot of fun and provided a fun challenge getting through the surf!

About the Host, Babe
My husband and I have been living in Playa Flamingo now for 16 years and love the tranquil beauty of our area. Our home is located overlooking the ocean so the sounds of the ocean are constant and the breezes keep the air fresh. With unobstructed views, I enjoy the vastness of our vista and the peace that comes from being out in the open air. When you come to visit, you will be understand what it means to experience our little part of paradise.
