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!
What a stunning view. It is amazing, really! Casa De Serenidad is impressive, and for our honeymoon we really enjoyed the privacy of this beautiful property over a resort. We will never forget the experience!
Babe was an awesome host who made us feel welcome, even in the weeks before we arrived. She helped us with other parts of our travel to and from Playa Flamingo. We used her fins, body boards, beach chairs, and towels every day. The apartment we stayed in worked well for us. We actually spent very little time there because of the many other beach activities around. However, we did enjoy floating in the little infinity pool, using the grill, and each morning we had breakfast by those hammocks! We had zero issues with privacy. There was construction at a nearby home during the day. Because we left all day every day we only heard it in the morning or during afternoon pit stops.
My husband and I stayed here for 5 days for our Honeymoon. It was absolutely lovely! Its smaller than it looks in the pictures, but was totally adequate. Babe was out of town, but her husband was very kind and helpful. We used the beach chairs and boogie boards when we went down to the beach. Also, we grilled a while snapper on the grill and it was delicious! Its a pretty steep walk to the beach, and we ended up renting a car (there is a car rental at the bottom of the hill by the plaza) the second day so we could get around easier. Playa Flamingo is a gorgeous beach, with white sand and clear turquoise water. It was truly paradise, and Casita Mango was a great home base! Private and relaxing, with an amazing view!
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!

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.
