Recently I chose a simple, uncomplicated large bedroom with private bath as my home-away-from-home for a memorable stay at Villas Casa Loma in Playa Flamingo, Costa Rica. This holiday was designed as a photographic safari, along with the chance to participate in a variety of sporting activities.
My sun-flooded accommodation offered me everything that I desired: Peace and quiet, proximity to beaches, restaurants, shops, activities and ample sports opportunities including zip-lines and stand up paddling.
The large bedroom came equipped with TV, a small bar fridge and basic dishes. Not needing a kitchen, this was an ideal setup for me.
I woke in the mornings to the sound of howler monkeys and bird songs with great views of the surrounding tropical dry forest. A cup of good Costa Rican coffee by the nearby dramatic tropical swimming pool and then off to the beaches!
Having a rental car was a great advantage. Secure parking was readily available at my door.
