The owner Elyne is perfect as the listing is exactly correct but the pictures and glowing comments cannot do this wonderful home and development justice. First comments on Elyne's assistance; as an owner she really knows the local area and is very generous with her time aiding you in every respect with email response times that were very impressive. This providing tremendous comfort as we traveled 3,000 miles to visit her home. Elyne's local manger Jorge is great as he aids you in making reservations and suggesting day trips and activities. As to her home, well the pictures do give you an overview to this home, but to be clear the location is outstanding on a peaceful white sand beach right out of the movies. The home is spacious with both bedrooms being on the second floor, each floor has 2 large patio/decks with views of the pool and ocean and containing comfortable lounges and chairs to relax and enjoy the awesome sunsets! Everything was perfectly maintained and very high end within the home. The Villa is within a community of homes wherein there is an expert staff making for an absolutely five star resort with food and drinks available by the pool or delivered to your Villa and with their expert Chef Roy you could have dinner delivered or set on the beach to dine at sunset. The staff were extremely well trained and focused on making every moment you were on their grounds or using the pool feel as if you were their honored guest. To summarize, Elyne is the best owner, the location is outstanding as the beach has the best combination of white sands wonderful waves and privacy. The home is top notch with every need covered all done in a very elegant manner. The Palms community was every bit of a five star resort on the beach. Just outstanding in every way. Thanks Elyne for providing our family the opportunity to enjoy your wonderful home for our vacation. We will be back!

My wife and I spent 5 days at the property for our anniversary and I cannot say how perfect the unit, grounds and surrounding area is. The interior of the unit is perfectly designed and has a nice "home" feel. Some of the highlights include the large spacious kitchen, the beautiful bedrooms, sizeable showers and bathrooms and the spectacular views of Playa Flamingo. Everything was perfectly maintained and very high end. I would recommend this place to anyone looking to get out of the resort style of traveling while still having the high end amenities. The staff is very kind and generous at the Palms and everyone went out of their way to make us welcome. The property itself is immaculate. The pool and beach area is the stuff you see on postcards. Elyne was extremely easy to deal with and sent us a variety of helpful information. I cannot recommend this place enough - book and you will not be disappointed!

We looked at a lot of places to stay and finally decided on The Palms. We made the right decision without a doubt. The most distinctive feature of the property is the vicinity of the condo to the pool and beach, especially the beach. There is no barrier between you and the ocean, once you step off the lawn, you are on the beach. The beach is great for swimming, clear water, clean sand, almost no undercurrent; really it was one of our favorite beaches to play at. The lawn was full and soft, great for a game of football. The pool was very nice. The entire grounds were very well kept. The condo was very well kept, we are pretty particular about the cleanliness of our living quarters and this was well done. The condo is built with high end materials, wood, stone, granite, etc. The location was convenient, yet quiet. We would absolutely stay here again. Thanks for sharing a great place with us.

The other reviews say it all. Everything was great. The accommodations, the view, the staff can't be beat. Roy is a real gem. He made all our dinner reservations, got us to the grocery and cooked us 5 wonderful meals. It was the perfect vacation. If you can swing it, The Palms, Villa 7 is the place to go. Working with the owner was very easy.

Our family of 5, two adults and 3 boys aged 16, 14, and 11 had a absolutely wonderful time at The Palms #7. The villa and grounds are even better than the pictures! The property is located at the quiet end of Playa Flamingo, and we had the amazing white sand beach almost to ourselves all week. The finishes in the condo are top notch, everything was sparkling clean! We loved the balcony off the master and enjoyed coffee there every morning as we gazed out onto the beautiful grounds and ocean. The pool was super clean and the gardens were wonderful. The ocean conditions were amazing during our stay. The waves were larger when we arrived, so we were able to use the complimentary boogie boards, which the boys loved. By the end of the week, the waves had died down, and we snorkeled at the south end of the beach and saw lots of fish and an eel. We also took out the complimentary kayaks, and enjoyed an amazing view of the beach from the bay.
One of the best things about this location is the amazing staff at The Palms. Maselle and Roy are available at the pool to order delicious food and drinks during the day. Every evening they make the most amazing cocktails at sunset, passion fruit or blackberry martinis, passion fruit mohitos, margaritas, to name a few. It was fun to gather with the few other guests that were staying at The Palms and talk about our adventures of the day. Roy can also help with reservations, booking excursions, and arranging local transportation to restaurants. The security staff and grounds crew are always around making sure the property is in tip top shape, and we felt very safe during our stay.
Elyne was great to deal with and our arrival to the property was a breeze. We will definitely be back, and want to thank Elyne and Joan for sharing this amazing slice of paradise with us. Pura Vida!
We just returned from a fantastic stay at The Palms. The photos, while beautiful, do not do the rental justice - it's hard to imagine, but it's actually better. We have rented many homes over the past 10 years and this condo tops the list. My husband and I and our girls (ages 8 and 6) loved everything about our stay here - from the gorgeous views of the Pacific, the amazing infinity pool, Roy, the concierge, bartender and chef extraordinaire (I highly recommend the frozen mojito!!), beautiful Playa Flamingo - one of the prettiest beaches around, the gorgeous grounds, the hard-working and courteous maintenance staff, the fully-equipped kitchen, the comfortable beds, the flat screen tvs, the balcony and the porch - perfect spots to enjoy the amazing sunsets - everything was perfect. The service and the staff were top notch, from the fresh flowers throughout the unit when we arrived to the daily maid service - my girls loved the different creations the housekeeper made with their blankies and stuffed animals :). In addition, the location is central to every type of activity. Elyne was very professional and helpful - any questions I had were answered quickly. I would highly recommend this property to a friend. Thank you Elyne, for sharing your beautiful home with us - we hope someday to return.

My wife and I, along with another couple just returned from our first, and definitely not our last, visit to Costa Rica. We started with a week at The Palms and immediately entered into a world of serenity. What an amazing Condo and location! It is huge and with two large bedrooms (each with a spacious ensuite) that have king beds allowing each couple to have their own space. The condo is first class all the way with "top of the line” everything. It is very clean, spacious and maintained in all aspects. Easily a 5 Star rating.
The outside is just as spectacular as all the property is trimmed and cleaned daily so it is like a huge garden. The main deck is probably the best deck in the complex as it is close to everything including the pool and the bar. A perfect deck for coffee in the am and for little cocktail parties at sunset (and the sunsets are perfect every evening).
The pictures and descriptions on the web site are great but it is actually better than the photos. It is very centrally located to restaurants and if you like to walk it is amazing. We walked the beach to Brasilito & Conchal and also walked from the condo to endless beach and beyond to Lola's. Long walk (about 15 km return) but incredible views and the cervasa never tasted better!
We used the boogie boards, the gym, snorkeling equipment and the kayaks that you can use for free. We never had to wait to use them and the waves were perfect.
All the staff at the Palms are very helpful and happy people. The Palms manager, Jorge and Roy went out of their way to help us.
I have done a number of Vrbo rentals before and Elyne was very helpful and professional to deal with. There is no need to look at any other accommodation; this one is perfect in every way for everyone!

Condo #7 is pure luxury. Extremely well kept, clean, with everything one needed. The bedrooms are very spacious and especially liked the fact each has an ensuite. Location is amazing, inches from a gorgeous pool & meters from the beach & ocean. Complex employees were the most courteous, helpful and friendly people around. Staying here is like living the dream.

This was our second visit in two years to The Palms #7. This property is really lovely - wonderful location on one of the most beautiful beaches in Costa Rica. The condo itself is just like the photos - beautifully maintained & decorated with all the amenities one could ask for. The owners attention to detail is evident in the furnishings, up-to-date appliances, cooking utensils & large flat screen TVs in every room. The Palms property is top-notch with a gorgeous infinity pool, beautifully maintained landscape & a staff that goes out of their way to ensure your stay in relaxing, enjoyable & fun. Since our stay last year, The Palms now offers a light lunch & early dinner menu which is excellent. Roy, the bartender/chef/concierge is a delight. He makes a fantastic cocktail (Passionfruit Martini!), can be your personal chef & knows all the best places to dine, sail, golf, horseback riding, - any activity/adventure you're interested in, Roy can make the arrangements. One important thing to know about Costa Rica is that plumbing can be very sensitive - the previous occupants had an issue with the Masterbath toilet & the issue was still not resolved completely by the time we arrived.

I've been before to Unit 7 at the Palms in Playa Flamingo. It is hard to believe but the second time 'round was even better than the first. Last time loved the water, the pool, the place and the day trips. This time, all of that and now I could order in fresh food when the whim occurred to me. The Palms now has a great chef and meals are delivered right to the door. This year, I saw giant leatherback turtles laying eggs (69 of them) at night. Once again, I also visited the Spa. So whether I was busy on day trips or just relaxing in the pool, this condo is ideal-I love luxury.

All the amenities of a 5-star resort coupled with the privacy and spaciousness of our own vacation home on the beach. The condo itself is beautifully furnished and equipped with everything you could possibly need for a relaxing and enjoyable vacation, including boogie boards, deck chairs, televisions upstairs and down, and dvd players. Both bedrooms are large and have tons of space to unpack and spread out. There is an in suite bathroom in each bedroom and another bath downstairs. The kitchen is wonderful and every pot, pan and utensil you can think of is provided. The condo is literally steps from the most beautiful beach in Costa Rica. The views of the ocean and the spectacular sunsets from the deck and upstairs balcony were breathtaking. Although the condo is privately owned, the rental includes the services of The Palms complex. This is where the resort experience kicks in. Roy is the concierge, but this title hardly does him justice. He is a master chef and will cook and deliver dinner either to the outdoor eating area or to the condo. We had grilled lobster one night and pizzas and salad another. Both were delicious! He also arranged for two day trips and made a number of restaurant recommendations. Most incredibly, when our 19 and 21-year-old sons expressed an interest in the night life of Costa Rica and told him that they like to dance, he took them to Tamarindo to learn salsa dancing! Daily maid service, beach towels, kayaks, beach chairs and umbrellas are also included. In all, we had a perfect nine days. I cannot recommend this rental highly enough. We cannot wait to return!

We were thrilled when we walked into this condo! The view of the ocean through the living area was spectacular, the first thing we did was walk onto the patio to take in the view. There were very few people staying at The Palms which made our stay even more relaxing. The condo had everything we needed, we did not cook much as we loved Mar Y Sol restaurant and ate there 3 of the four nights of our stay. We highly recommend this rental.

The quality of construction and furniture was first class. We did a lot of cooking in the large kitchen,which was equipped with everything you possible would need,to create a good . We certainly recommend this wonderful place to anyone for a great holiday

How does this sound for a relaxing days itinerary? Breakfast, beach, pool, ,lunch, nap, beach, pool, dinner, bed. Well, multiply that by 22 days and you will have an idea of how relaxing our time in Flamingo was. We took full advantage of the beautiful surroundings here and we enjoyed every minute of it. Elyne & Joan, we understand why you spend so much time here. There are no worries and each day flows effortlessly into the next. Emma and Joe started calling it "home" after just a few days so we can safely say they enjoyed it too. Thank you both for allowing us to share this wonderful home you have here.

Summer, Thanks for sending your family comments. Yes, we too find it very relaxing here at the beach. Luckily, we get pretty lengthy stays and really enjoy the Costa Rican "Pura Vida" lifestyle. Elyne & Joan

The beach here is so quiet. Arising early I walk it on my own (30 steps from beachfront door), enjoying the sun and breezes. I meet no-one, the quiet and serenity are just what I had hoped. The homes here at The Palms are wonderful. The endless lap pool exquisite. If peacefulness, serenity and superb accommodations are what you seek...you'll find it at The Palms #7. During my 2 week stay I did manage a visit to Tabacon Hot Springs and another to the Monteverde Cloud Forest Reserve, enjoyed massages and saw the illusive Quetsel and amazing flora. Really, a trip of a life-time. I hope to be so lucky to return to this beautiful country and Guanacaste someday. Read more
