Hacienda Pinilla, Costa Rica
Hacienda Pinilla, Costa Rica
The villa at Hacienda Pinilla was perfect. The unit was well equipted and very comfortable for our family of five. We loved the Costa Rican appointments throughout the unit. The unit is well-maintained and very clean. The location of the unit is very desirable within Hacienda Pinilla. You are walking distance to the JW Marriott and it's four very nice restaurants. Playa Bonita, a two minute walk out the front door, has spectacular sunsets. Playa Avellanas and the Beach Club (a two minute drive) are spectacular spots for surfing, sunbathing by the infinity pool, a message, and a drink at the 'tiki bar' at sunset, or simply walking the beautiful beach! A neat lunch spot down the beach at Avellanas is Lola's (across the river mouth about 1/2 mile down the beach from the beach club). The new super market on the way into Tamarindo (about a 15 minute drive) has virtually everything that a US grocery store has and more. I would highly recommend this unit!

Great place, great location, reasonable price.

A wonderful villa in a really great place. Pinilla is famous for being an exclusive club with high prices. But this villa is different because it offers all great things with a good price. Rooms are really comfortable with their own bathroom, kitchen is more than full equiped, great if you want to have a BBQ(Only problem was that grill required to be cleaned, but I'm sure with prior notice they can take care of it) and during the booking process the owner was really helpful. For future visits to Guanacaste this will be for sure my first choice when booking.

My first VRBO experience has been very good, even excellent. Based on recommendation from a friend regarding the Hacienda Pinilla area and the reviews posted regarding this listing, I booked it for a week. The owner was extremely helpful and easy to reach. Everything listed on website was accurate and complete. The villa was very well equipped, clean upon arrival, and we had plenty of linens and towels, a complete ready to use kitchen with blender, toaster, coffee maker, everything necessary to eat in...and space for a family gathering of up to 10! Long story short, my wife of 33 years and I spent a week at one of the nicest places on earth in one of the nicest villas/condo/home I've ever been in. Way more room than any couple would ever need, but we were also looking/scouting out a spot for my 60th birthday this September. We needed a safe place with plenty of options where we could bring our whole family. Grandkids, adult children, and spouses, along with Papi and Grandma Suze, need something just like this place. We found the spot here and we will be back...bringing the whole fam damily. Great access to the beach via the Pinilla Beach Club, (Iced Coffee recipe the best I've ever had), with a pool, changing room with shower, massage therapist in house, and a decent lunch and snack menu. Plus, the pool deck looks out at Little Hawaii, with a short walk south to Aveyllas Beach and the Rivermouth, Dead Trees, and Lolas...(also a great place to eat, Lolas on the Beach), all great places to surf and sun and look for shells. Local folks very nice, warm and friendly mostly rural in nature. Employees at Pinella the same, friendly and helpful. I'd rate the villa, it's amenities, condition, style and decor, and luxurious feel a 9.5 out of 10. I'd rate the owner in helpfulness, responsiveness, accuracy of listing a 10 out of 10. I'd recommend to both family and friends. I will return and book this villa again.

Palma Real at Hacienda Pinilla, observations after the trip
Palma Real at Hacienda Pinilla, observations after the trip
Just got back from a week in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. It was my first time to Costa Rica. The owner Jeff was extremely attentive to email questions and very reasonable, so if you are thinking of going I highly reccomend this house. 1. The home is located about an hour and 20 minutes drive from Liberia Airport, straight shot. It is located within the secured grounds of Hacienda Pinilla, a large community that includes the JW Marriot, Hotel Posada, and Palma Real properties, as well as a golf course, tennis courts and a small gym. Once you are on the grounds, it takes an additional 10 minutes to get to the house. Costa Rica is still a developing country, so the infrastructure is not yet well developed . This is both good and bad. It is not Americanized like Cancun, with a Subway on every corner. The downside is you will drive on many rutted, dirt and gravel roads, deal with potholes and most conveniences like Grocery stores and gas stations are farther away. The closest gas stations are on the way to the airport, be aware. If you get a rental car, strong suggestion is you print your credit card policy on rental car insurance coverage to avoid the added on fee that they will insist you otherwise pay. Keep in mind it is 20 minutes to Tamarindo. 2. The house itself is awesome, relatively new, ornate, well appointed bedrooms, bathrooms and kitchen. Lots of closets and storage. Safe. Washer/dryer for laundry. Large balcony with hammock. It lacks a TV on the main level, which seemed weird as this was were everyone congregated, but since we were on vacation it was not a big deal. The wifi works, but can be spotty. Their is a small nice pool a 5 minute walk behing the house, but very few chairs to lay on 3. within a 1.5 miles of the house is a JW Marriott and the PLaya Avellenas Beach Club. The JW is not free , but you wont get charged to use the pool or eat there if you have small groups and are not obvious. the food is great, but make reservations as they have limited seating. The beach at the Marriot is not that big or surfable. PLaya Avellenas is relatively close also. It is free to use if you are staying at the house. Clean bathrooms, great pool, lots of chairs. Bring your own towels. The food is great, and open from 11 to 7. Try the mint lemondate or the ceviche. Great beach on a good surf break. You can walk to a surf hangout called Lolla's , which is about 10 minutes down the beach. Enjoy

Very nice accomodations and just a few steps down to a beautiful shoreline. The Villa was very comfortable and beautifully appointed. I can't think of a nicer place to stay while in Costa Rica. The clubhouse facilities were as nice as most luxury hotels. Access to everything within 20 min. The owners of this Villa are very nice people to work with and will go out of their way to help you get started on your trip to Cosa Rica. Great Stay!

This villa is absolutely beautiful! We had a great time and the villa was so relaxing and comfortable. The kitchen is very well stocked and we really enjoyed cooking and eating in. There was an issue with the refrigerator, but the owner had it replaced with another one ASAP. Great service & lovely villa!

This Villa at Hacienda Pinilla was FABULOUS!!! The Villa was equipped with everything you could imagine or need! Luxurious interior furnishings, 3 bedrooms w/3.5 baths, very roomy, stocked kitchen, fabulous master bedroom! This Villa was spotless! As a very picky traveler, I definitely would rate this property an A+ in the cleanliness department. As a frequent traveler to Costa Rica as well as Hacienda Pinilla, I would definitely recommend this particular Villa! We will stay here again! It is located very close to the JW Marriott as well. The property owner has thought of everything; great information was also provided regarding tours & adventures in Costa Rica. Hacienda Pinilla is a great resort - beaches, pools, fitness center, horses & stables, great security, always felt safe & secure, the list goes on and on. This Villa receives 5 STARS from the Atlanta travelers! We will be back!

We really loved the ambiance of this property. It was very spacious and comfortable and CLEAN! The beds were extremely cozy, and I loved hanging out on the balcony in the hammock enjoying the view. The beach club was wonderful, the pool was beautiful and the beach was right there for you to enjoy. I really liked having the ability to sit at the bar outside and enjoy a cool and refreshing beverage. They also served a delicious lunch either at the bar or at the restaurant right there on the grounds. No need to pack up......you can go down for the day and have everything right there that you need. Jeff was great to work with, and he provided all of the necessary information to feel knowledgeable for the area. You can really feel the pride of ownership in this property. I would recommend their place to anyone I know going to Tamarindo.

This place was amazing! It met all my needs and the photos accurately reflect the beauty of the property. It is located on a nature reserve with access to three different beaches without even leaving the property. There is a beach club with great food, nice pool, very clean and smiling staff. The surf shack at the beach club offers lessons and surf board rentals and the Playa Avallena is a great beginners surfing spot. We spent every day there and had a great time. We even walked down the beach to Lolla's a couple of times to have a fantastic lunch with beautiful views and watch the more advanced surfers on the waves. The home itself is clean and nicely appointed with easy access to it's own pool. Jeff Axelrod, the owner, was very helpful and had many good tips for me as this was my first time to Costa Rica and I brought my 2 month old baby and a girlfriend and I had such a great time that I will definately be coming back! If you do go, make sure to go to Nuigi's in Tamarindo and order the fish tacos - yum!

Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: My wife and I live in Minneapolis and after having lived in a number of different areas we have settled back where we call home. After visiting several times and falling in love with Costa Rica we decided to invest in our retirement which seemed at the time to be just a few years away. Like so many other places we all experienced real estate was a hot commodity back then so we made the plunge. We're still waiting for a full recovery in market values but in the meanwhile we have another place we call home. We wish that we could get away more but it seems that retirement led to more work and children led to grandchildren. While we wait our turn we would love to share our home and vision with you!
Why the Owner Chose Tamarindo:
We visited Costa Rica on four different occasions and each time tried to convince ourselves to invest. On the fourth visit it was make or break for us. We would either make a purchase or never again broach the subject. After scouring the area all around Tamarindo we settled on life at Hacienda Pinilla. We searched for a place that was safe, had great beaches, plenty to enjoy in our neighborhood and was a bit away from the bustle of town. Hacienda Pinilla was just such a place. We knew we found a special place and was one that had all of the amenities that we enjoy at our fingertips. We like the fact that it is still close enough to enjoy the restaurants, shopping or just walking the town. Yet we could leave and get away from all of it when we wanted! One good dose of the dusty roads, crowds of 'surfer dudes' and crowded beaches and we knew that we wanted to be close but not in it every day. Having owned several other vacation rental properties throughout the years we knew from experience what amenities others appreciate and look for when planning for their vacation. At Hacienda Pinilla you'll find beautiful uncrowded beaches, great surfing, excellent restaurants, golf, tennis, spa, gorgeous sunsets and so much more! Within our villa you will find exquisite furnishings, quality linens, fully stocked kitchen supplies and all the comforts of home. To us, this is not your typical 'rental' home - it is our home and furnished so that we, and our guests, can enjoy the time we spend here.
