Lush tropical vegetation complimented by songs of various species of birds - and the wildlife was astonishing! Stunning sunsets to challenge any photographer or painter! Views of lovely gardens, palms, hills and valleys and the Pacific Ocean were just a glance away from our comfortable, private and secure accommodations!
Tropical woods and natural building materials added to the overall ambience of the property, which is located on a hillside only moments from the nearest beaches, restaurants, supermarkets and shops. This was our second visit and we continue to love the location and the quiet comfort. Hosts Tom and Igor are always available with suggestions for great restaurants or arranging sightseeing trips, thus adding that extra spice to our holiday experiences! (One evening at a restaurant on the beach we witnessed a Leatherback turtle laying her eggs on the sand near our table!) We watched monkeys and exotic birds, whale watched from a terrace and just vegged out.
The property itself was close to a huge number of activities offered in the area, yet removed enough from the hustle and bustle to allow us the quiet, secure vacation that we were seeking. Highly recommended!
I have been to Costa Rica a number of times for winter breaks and have always enjoyed the climate, people and opportunities that this charming country offers. Since discovering Villas Casa Loma about 5 years ago, I have made a point to make it my winter home away from home.
I've traveled extensively throughout Caribbean islands and Central Americas, the sunshine states, and have crisscrossed Europe. Costa Rica is my favored destination! The allure of this wonderful country is enhanced by personal and passionately genuine hospitality of the owners of Lomas Flamingo, Igor and Tom, who contribute to making this place even more special.
These friendly and knowledgeable hosts are always available and willingly offer assistance, advice, tour suggestions, places to eat, etc. Every time I have traveled to a different place I have experienced the unknown... But not at Villas Casa Loma.
My last visit - December 2015 -I met a lovely couple from Canada, Steve and Joanne who were avid travelers and sun worshipers as well. We spent some time by the pool and they told me that this place feels most comfortable by far than any other place they stayed at in the past. I said I felt the same way. That is why I have come back every year for that past 5 years.
Also I would like to mention that accommodation and ambiance at Villas Casa Loma are a real bonus!
High ceilings, architectural details, great gardens, pools and not to forget the spectacular views, sunrises and sunsets. Situated on a gentle hillside makes it both safe and secluded - mere minutes from the towns of Flamingo, Surfside/Potrero, Brasilito and Tamarindo. The place offers a wide variety of activities, including a vast array of really fine restaurants, scuba diving, fishing excursions, lovely beaches and fun places to shop.
I highly recommend Villas Casa Loma to anyone who is seeking a quiet, restful retreat OR if you choose an action packed holiday in the sun with perfect weather every time! I look forward to returning again next year!
Cheers Anton B.
