The Space

This spacious 2 bedroom 2 bath cliff tropical home is one of a kind. Built in traditional construction style, with over 10,000 palm leaves making the roof of this magnificient tropical home. The roof is supported by a giant tree in the center which also serves as a circular staircase into a bedroom on the second floor. The house and its screened windows are designed to take advantage of the constant cliff side breeze giving no need for a lot of airconditioning. Except for the bathrooms and the tile floor on the ground floor the house is all in wood. The house enjoys an amzing pool with waterfall and jets for relaxation as well as two balconies to the front and the back with a seating and dining area both inside and outside. The less populated south ridge is also a lot more quite as barely any cars roll by. Casa Jungle is one of 4 units in a small vacation resort.Each bedroom has its own bathrooms, a living/ dining room withkitchen and a private and spacious balconies in. Sliding doors make the balcony accessible from all rooms. Amazing ocean and beach views are to be enjoyed from each room and the balcony. This unit has all the modern amenities one expects from a modern but tropical apartment.

The beach is only minutes in walking distance with a wide variety of dining and entertainment and shopping possibilities across the beach on the north ridge of Flamingo. Another advantage of this unit is it is close to everything but just far away to feel secluded enough to truly enjoy the daily monkey visits and experience the variety of wildlife directlly in front of you!

  • The house itself is great! gorgeous views. bedrooms upstairs and on first level. full bathroom attached to each. walking distance to the beach (although some rugged roads and a downhill walk) and coco loco (best restaurant in playa flamingo). The screened in lounge area was the best feature in the house. had a cute bistro table and chairs facing the coast for morning coffee and breakfast.
    Shared pool area was nice as we were the only ones using it.
    The only problems with this rental were that it was a little off the beaten path and difficult to check in. We were very glad that it was still light out as were were trying to figure out where to check in bc in the dark we would have been completely lost and scared. We were given very vague directions and weren't sure where to go. When we found the office, the property owner, Juan Carlos, did not know we were coming. Luckily we connected and he still checked us into the house and the rental went just fine from that point on. Never met Juan Carlos or Maggie in person. The property is managed by a very nice couple however they only speak spanish.
    SOME ADVICE: go to the office attached to Coco Loco to check in.

  • What was your experience with your host? Was the listing what you expected? What was their neighbourhood like?

  • The house, view and outside area (patio) are beautiful. We woke up the first morning to howler monkeys swinging through the trees right out front & in our yard, dolphins in the ocean and colorful birds everywhere. The pool was nice to take a quick dip in since it was hot. Check in was smooth (the security guard let us in), however communication with the host Maggie could have been better before we arrived - I had questions about directions that were never answered (I later learned she was out of the country). Luckily we were able to borrow a local phone when picking up our rental car, to call Maggie's co-host directly and he gave us detailed directions - very helpful. I don't think the host told the cleaning lady we were arriving that night since the house wasn't very clean as far as floors and surfaces go (beds were made though) - the maid did clean really well the next morning, which was good. Wifi worked (once the maid told us where the password was located). Overall, we highly recommend this house and would definitely stay again.

  • What a wonderful place to stay. There are homes in close proximity but in such a weird way you feel like the only people up on this beautiful hill. The pictures are exactly what the house looks like. There is just enough dishes, pots and pans for you to cook for yourself. At night there is a wonderful cross breeze that drifts through the house and cools down the place. Our favorite place was the window seat. What you don't see in the pictures is that the window seat is outset from the house and is all screen. You can lay there and read while listening to the jungle noises, and feeling the wonderful breeze. We can't wait to come back with some friends to share this amazing place with. It was a perfect and relaxing place to have our honeymoon. Defiantly a stress detox after the chaos of wedding planning!

About
Living here is loving here. We started a software company in Costa Rica and now we are the National MLS (Multiple Listing Service) provider for Costa RIca Real Estate Association. Our tour office is located in 650 meters south of Flamingo Beach Resort, next to a great restaurant Coco Loco right on the beach. We manage several lovely homes here in Playa Flamingo, Playa Potrero, Playa Grande, Playa Tamarindo, and Playa Ventana, some are ours, some are our friends'. Each house/beach has its own characteristics and we hope that you will enjoy every minute of your time in Costa RIca. I am currently in Taiwan now and rent out my lovely apartment for all the travelers around the world. For Costa Rica listings, I have my property manager who is Tico (Costa Rican) and very responsible to taking care of all tenants and houses. Hope you enjoy your time staying in our lovely homes. Thanks :) Side note: I finished a great trip in Europe in the end of 2012. I stayed at four different airbnb hosts places (amsterdam, barcelona, granada, and seville) all of them are amazing experience and good people. look forward to my next trip somewhere soooooon~
