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.
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 have a service manual in our apartment which offer your information about the area and recommendations of restaurants, activities and places to visit while you are here. We will share more in detail about house rules!
Our stay with Babe was an amazing experience. She was so helpful with the excursions and gave us super thorough directions on how to get to her place. When we arrived her husband was there and gave us a tour of their beautiful home. Breath taking doesn't come close the view. They have an infinity pool that has a beautiful view of the ocean and the northern part of the peninsula. There is a awesome table with chairs Where u can relax and drink a beer or two. Our room was perfect and the AC really helps during those hot days. She booked an awesome excursion for us where we ziplined upside down. There are local restaurants that she recommended that were delicious. My girlfriend appreciated her cute dog as well he was super cute. Our trip was great and the stay with Babe made it better.
My husband and I stayed in the ocean front villa for one week and only wish we could have stayed forever! The views are breathtaking and there is plenty of amenities on site to keep you relaxed and entertained. Babe and Don went so far out of their way to help us when we encountered some hiccups upon our arrival and we couldn't be more grateful! Overall, we had a wonderful experience and would recommend this villa to anyone.
Babe and Don were fantastic hosts. She made us feel very welcome and comfortable. She knew a lot about the area and activities so it was easy to fill up our time with fun things to do. The house had a lot of options for relaxing after being out all morning. The pool was always clean, the hammocks were our favorite to read and take a quick nap. We told a couple of people we met how great the place is and how much we love our hosts! Thanks again for an unforgettable trip!
My boyfriend and I stayed at Casita Mango for two nights during our week vacation in Costa Rica! It was the perfect way to start our trip. The view of the beach from the villa is indescribable...it really is incredible! Playa Flamingo is a quiet little town with a great beach and some great restaurants. Make sure you check out Coco Loco, which is just a short walk from the villa and is a great place right on the beach! Babe and her Husband Don were the best hosts! They helped plan transportation, gave us great recommendations for restaurants, showed us where to get groceries, baked us some top notch chocolate chip cookies, and even arranged for us to spend the afternoon at a private beach across the street!
Overall our time here was wonderful! It was quite and relaxing, a perfect romantic getaway!
Thanks for everything Babe & Don! Hopefully our paths cross again soon.
Babe made us feel welcome throughout our visit. She was always there to answer our questions and assist us whenever needed. We loved the hammocks/wading pool area with shaded roof. The views of the bay were fantastic! Enjoyed seeing the iguanas eating the papaya on the tree, as well as seeing various birds. There was even a howler monkey cruising the neighborhood. We didn't have a car, and yes it was quite a hike up to Casita Mango, but found the going rate for a taxi is 1000 colones from Playa Flamingo.
A great restaurant to eat at is Coco Locos on the beach. The drinks and foods were fantastic. Loved our stay at Casita Mango!
Babe was an amazing host. The place is a one of kind mansion on a cliff where you have the ocean sounds right outside the window which makes it very calm and a perfect place to relax. Very close to the little village Flamingo where there are som nice restaurants. We defenetely recommend this!

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.
