“The Absolute Best Place in Costa Rica”

This house was amazing, so much more than we could ever have asked for. I will always remember that feeling when we walked in the doors and saw the view. We were all speechless. Gorgeous property with perfect up keep. We are already planning our next trip back to it. We went with a group of 6 adults, if you are debating on a house or a resort RENT A HOUSE!!! It was perfect.

You can walk to the beach from this house but it is a workout! We choose to drive and park. About a 2 minute drive. No biggie. The view, the house, the property management is top notch!

Favorite vacation I have ever been on.

“It's all about the view!”

In a word, the house is incredible! The design is well thought out and the infinity pool area gives the most amazing view of the ocean. All the doors open, accordining style, allowing the living room and kitchen to "spill out" into the pool area. Two of the bedrooms are inside the main area of the house, but the third is more like a maid's quarters that is just outside the front door of the house, but is still in the main enclosed courtyard. The bed for the 2nd bedroom is listed as a queen, but is really a double and thus is a bit smaller. Also, no one in our group found any of the beds comfortable, as they are all extremely stiff, as are the pillows. The gas grill and the kitchen made it very easy for us to cook all of our meals and there was plenty of space along the large dinning room table for us all to eat. The small market is an easy 5 minute drive away and carried almost anything we wanted for the week. I also recommend checking out Lola's over at Playa Danta..it is a bit of drive (25min), but absolutely worth it. Or if you are down near Playa Avellana, the original Lola's is there and I liked it just a little better.
We really enjoyed our stay and would stay here again, if we ever come back to the area.

“10+ Infinity Pool with Spectacular Views”
Reviewed 15 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

This beautiful home is in a great location overlooking Playa Flamingo. Although there is no direct beach access it is a 3 minute drive or less than 10 minute walk. This is a very quiet community with close by groceries and restaurants. The house furnishings are top of the line, unique and give great attention to detail. There are 3 bedrooms, one of which has its own entrance off of the courtyard. The very best parts of this home are the kitchen, fantastic views and 10+patio and pool. It is an exceptional home and a great value. Our only recommendation might be to put bigger beds in the guest rooms or possibly 2 twins.

“Unbelievable”

To the owner of Villa Bouganvilla I would like to thank you for sharing your beautiful piece of paradise with us. We stayed (4 of us) from April 11-20th and just hated having to leave. This was my husband and my second time to Costa Rica. We raved about the country and the people so much that our friends wanted us to go back with them. We have rented many homes in the past but this is BY FAR the best one we have ever stayed in. We had a few appliance issues while we were there but everything was taken care of by Jimmy at Special Places who was very helpful. The view from the pool at night under the stars was absolutely breathtaking. I was practically in tears our final night standing in the warm water overlooking the ocean knowing we had to leave the next day. We will definitely be back.
