Playa Flamingo APT: Casita Mango

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Playa Flamingo, Guanacaste, Costa Rica

The Space

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.

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.

  • Oh my goodness, I thought the photos conveyed a stunning location, but in person it is even more phenomenal. Spacious with many comfortable areas to relax, bar-b-q, soak in the pool, or fall asleep in a hammock with your feet soaking in cool water and views forever. Babe and Don were kind and gracious hosts and could not ask for more. A+ stay.

  • Kate & I had a wonderful time at Casita Mango. There are many advantages to staying here if you want to enjoy the many sunny beaches located nearby in this region of Costa Rica. From the free usage of the kayak, snorkels/flippers, beach chairs, and boogie boards to the use of the gym and pool located on the premises, visitors are really taken care of. The place is safe and secure and kept up immaculately. And Babe helped us out from start to finish, helping us with finding a good car rental agency to filling out the paperwork for the exit visa tax ($29) before we came home. It was our first time in this country and our experience was enhanced by her knowledge of how to get around. Thank you Babe!

  • We spent 3 wonderful nights in Casita Mango and really appreciated Babe's hospitality and attentiveness. Their property is very special and the views and accommodations were excellent. Flamingo beach is gorgeous and easy to walk to from the house. Babe gave us great tips on where to buy the best produce, eat out and beaches to visit.

    We look forward to returning soon!

  • The place was picturesque - at Casa de Serenidad, you get to enjoy your slice of paradise. The best part? Babe and Don were exemplary hosts and went above and beyond to make our stay pleasurable. It was like being greeted by old friends who had our best interests at heart. The little extras made our stay in Flamingo and Costa Rica that much better.

    Casa de Serenidad has amenities worth noting too: a short walk to a snorkeling beach, exercise room with sauna, boogie boards, infinity pool, and two hammocks overlooking the sea.

    Flamingo beach is pristine and one of the most beautiful in Guanacaste. It's an ideal area to relax (either before or after a trip up to La Fortuna). Highly recommended - you should experience it for yourself!

  • Babe and the place were great! From the minute of booking our stay to checking out Babe was super helpful and friendly!

    We flew into SJO and Babe's directions were spot on. This is really helpful because there aren't any street signs. She greeted us as soon as we arrived and showed us the whole place. Then helped us with things to check out and do.

    The property is awesome fri the apartment to the pool and gym to the lounging hammocks. The view from the property is out of this world with amazing sunsets and sunrises.

    This is definitely the place to stay. We hope to get back there again soon.

  • Babe place was amazing! Do not look anywhere else while you are visiting Playa flamingo or the area. It is much! Better then she can convey in the pictures. Only caveat is that this is not a place for young children. Enjoy The beautiful views and say hello to Babe for us.

  • This place was our favourite in ALL of Costa Rica!
    Stunning views from every inch of the suite!
    We had the large villa and we're completely spoiled with the luxurious open floor plan and the amazing hospitality of Babe and Don... And of course have our own gym,dry and wet sauna on the floor beneath us was a great surprise for us two gym buffs.
    The hammock area with water on the top floor was a perfect place to relax and read and have wonderful times of listening to the ocean and taking it all in!
    This place sealed the deal for us in choosing Costa Rica as our vacation/retirement home in the future.... Near future hopefully...
    Thank you again Babe and Don for everything and we wish you all the best for the future and we hope to see you again soon one day !

  • Babe's place is BEAUTIFUL!!! I would highly recommend it to anyone! The view is insanely gorgeous and Babe is so helpful & considerate. We stayed in the Casita Mango and it was tidy and perfect for our needs! Babe let us use her sea double kayak and snorkel gear which was so much fun and free (yay!). Playa Flamingo's beaches are so beautiful with the warmest water and softest sand. Babe's place has hammocks you can lay in all day if you want to let your stress float away and look over their insane view. It was like heaven!! Babe was such a nice host and even gave us banana bread upon our arrival. The bed was comfy and cozy with a TV and there is a washer & dryer you can use on the property also. You could also play ping-pong, workout, or they have 2 (wet and dry) saunas. Seriously, this place was like heaven.
    STAY HERE! You can't go wrong. Seriously. You're going to love it!

  • Our stay at Casa de Serenidad was lovely. Baby was very communicative from the beginning when I first messaged her and had lots of questions about my travels to Costa Rica. She was very accommodating and sent us very detailed directions and put me in touch with Adobe car rental where we were able to get a discount through her as well.

    The place is just as picturesque as it looks in her photos, although if you can afford it go for one of the more expensive rooms. Our room was quite small. The reason I am giving 4 stars instead of 5 is just around the price we paid compared with the value. Some of the other places we stayed were much more economical and just as lovely. You won't get an included breakfast like you will at many hotels and B&Bs (although she did very kindly make us banana bread that was delicious!) However if you're looking for a lovely place to stay that is true to the photos, I definitely recommend this place!

    Tips:
    Bring a small flashlight as it can get very dark at night! There is also a full kitchen so feel free to bring your own food to cook as you may not want to drive out to find food (although if you do, we loved Tubla!) There was no shampoo/conditioner/soap in the bathroom so recommend you bring your own. If you want to use the kayak make sure you request the key before you walk down there. If you plan to use the treadmills in the gym make sure you check them first as they weren't working during our stay.

About

When you come to visit, you will be understand what it means to experience our little part of paradise.
