Tamarindo house description

Hacienda del Pacifico is a recently built house, designed by a well known California architect.
Using inspiration from traditional hacienda style, the house opens on to a very private secluded
garden with a lagoon shaped swimming pool. Hacienda style is all about open air walkways that
connect parts of the house. The authentic indoor/outdoor living. Unlike many of the more recently
built houses and condos in the area, the Hacienda delivers a very unique Costa Rican experience.
As one client expressed so well, 'you have your own tropical paradise'.


Located at the south end of Tamarindo Bay, the Hacienda is one of the very few large houses
in Tamarindo that has direct beach access from the front door. (see YouTube video)
Our beach area has excellent swimming and surfing along with low tide rock pools ready to
explore. A short walk around the point will give you the best sunset view in Tamarindo. If
you go to the beach and forget something, or you want to have one last swim as the sun is
setting - your bedroom is just a minute away.

The main focus of the house is the large 'walk gallery' connecting all the areas together around a central terrace area with swimming pool, patio and garden. The pool is more a free form lagoon with waterfall, which makes the garden look very tropical. All during the day, this area is frequented by a large variety of birds. Our kitchen is fully equipped and open to the patio and dining area, allowing guests to come and go as they please.

The house has 4 bedrooms, all with their own bathroom. The master suite is a separate 'casita' with a livingroom area, full bathroom and outside shower area. If you have never experienced an outside shower, it is a treat to be enjoyed!

We have a surfboard room and shower area so surfers and children with sandy feet can enter by a side gate and wash before entering the house area.

There is parking for two cars in front of the house. All bedrooms have a small safe for valuables.

Walk to town on the beach is 10 minutes. The finest hotel in Tamarindo, Capitan Suizo, is our neighbor. They serve delicious food and have music and barbeque evenings on the beach twice a week. Morning breakfast with howler monkeys in the trees is something they are famous for. Many of these howlers can be heard in the early morning from the Hacienda. Of course, making a fresh cup of coffee early in the morning in the Hacienda and then watching the sunrise on the beach is a great way to start a Costa Rican day.

What is unique is our location - which has become the best residential area of Tamarindo as we are off the main area of beach traffic and noise. We have access to everything you need with or without a car.

Complimentary fresh fruit, coffee, and beverages will be in the house upon your arrival

                        This house was beautiful, clean and perfect for our 7 day vacation. There were 4 couples in the house and we had plenty of room and the staff was great. It's located at one end of the beach that runs the length of Tamarindo and we just had to walk down a short path to get there. Great restaurants and nightlife. We also booked a trip that included zip lining, rafting, horseback riding and spa which was only an hour drive from the house. The pool at the house was refreshing after a hot day at the beach and there is plenty of room to lounge around in the sun. Everybody in our group felt right at home. Lexie, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with and was very helpful in getting us from the airport to the house. We came in on different flights and Lexie adjusted the 2:00 check in so we could drive directly there. I would highly recommend staying here and I will definitely be staying here again!

                        The House is beautiful, and very comfortable to stay at. We had 8 people there for Christmas and had a blast. The beach is beautiful and its right across the street. Had about 40-50 monkeys hang down from the tree out front and walk across the roof right in front of us all to the back of the house and got to hear them howl all night. Went fishing twice with the boat Lexie recommended and caught tons of Mahi. Tamarindo is a great little beach town with lots to do. Fun Relaxing and beautiful place to be. The house is wonderful as well.

                        This house was perfect for our four couples! We each had our own bedroom and bathroom with our own entrances. The garden area was very well maintained and house was kept very clean by the housekeeper. The kitchen is a great size and the appliances all worked well. The dining table was perfect for eight and we had breakfast every morning at the house. The living area was also a good size. The beds were comfortable and the bedrooms were plenty big. The master bedroom is large and the outdoor shower was very nice and in beautiful surroundings. Comments for improvement would be to have more furniture in the living room. The couch is huge and can accommodate a lot of people but would enjoy having additional seating. There is only 1 TV in the house which is in the living room which was fine for us since we didn't come to Costa Rica to watch TV, but it would have been nice to have a bigger set. There is also limited outdoor seating around the garden area. The location to the beach was literally a minute's walk. The beach is fantastic. It is clean and a great place to take a walk. There are bars and restaurants up and down the beach which makes it a fun place to spend the day. Also had fun collecting interesting sea shells in the morning. The house is close to restaurants and we did walk to a few for evening dinners but the roads are narrow, bumpy and highly used so we drove most of the time at night to the restaurants. All in all, this house is very charming and takes great advantage of the Costa Rican weather. We all agreed that we would stay here again.

                        With 4 couples it is not easy to please them all. In this case everyone thoroughly enjoyed the Hacienda. The entire property is beautiful, beds & bath comfortable and clean. The privacy is there and the pool was fantastic. Out door shower with the master bedroom was a real treat. The maid and gardener were friendly and helpful when needed. Lexie is great to deal with and quick to respond to questions and concerns. The walk to the beach is less then one minute and great dinning near by. Town is a 15 minute walk on the beach or a 4 minute cab ride. This was all our first time renting a house as opposed to resort. Thanks to the Hacienda, no more resorts for us. We will be back to Costa Rica and we will stay at the Hacienda.

                        Can't get a better location in Tamarindo: secluded, but steps from the beach and near town. The open layout is incredible and the details, design and finishes are all first rate. Much better than a hotel or any high rise. Walk to three totally different surf breaks. Surf or swim in the morning and evening then hang out by the pool the rest of the day. Great base from which to explore Guanacaste, but the house is so nice to just soak up.

                        We very much loved our stay at the hacienda. Traditional architecture,stylish, comfortable and private. Loved the "waterfall" by the pool, very cool. The location is the best in Tamarindo.. walking steps from the best beach on the bay. Very safe for my family to swim and surf. My family had a most enjoyable stay We will be back.

                        Hacienda del Pacifico was a great find! It is everything the website claims it will be and more! The open air concept is fabulous, and even though it was 95 degrees every day, the tropical foliage and shaded pool kept us very comfortable. The A/C in the bedrooms worked great and kept us cool at night. The hacienda is in a very good location, a 30 sec walk to the beach and just a mile or so from the center of the village.... great restaurants and shopping very near by. We will look no further when we return... Hacienda del Pacifico is the place for us!!

                        This property was beautiful. Its proximity to the beach could not be beat. The rooms were all clean and very comfortable. Lexie was super easy to work with and the house was absolutely gorgeous. The housekeeper and gardener were both very nice and helpful, and it made our stay that much more luxurious.

                        We stayed in this property for three weeks in January 2013. We were a large family with 3 young children. I must say this house exceeded all of my expectations. The owner was fantastic and very responsive to all my emails. Areceli and Geno, the people that clean and do the landscaping were two of the nicest, kindest, people I have had the pleasure of being around in a long time. They don't speak a lot of English but nevertheless are easy to communicate with. The way they treated our children was above and beyond. This house is open air living at its best. The kitchen, eating area, and TV room are all open air and the bedrooms are enclosed, all with attached baths and air conditioning. The pool is just great for young children. With outdoor living you do need to be aware that there are mosquitos and bring bug spray if they bother you. There were a couple members of our group that seemed to get bit more often and were somewhat annoyed by them but it didn't change their opinion on how much they loved the house. The other aspect of the place that was great was the beach access. There is a path right out the front door that takes you down to the beach. For young kids it was totally perfect, nobody worried about forgetting anything and having to run back to the house to get it. The beach in Longosta is much less crowded then Tamarindo and that was a huge appeal for us. We felt like we couldn't of picked a better location. Another thing I really enjoyed about the house was the wonderful landscaping, the trees, plants, and flowers were just wonderful. I would equate it to your own tropical paradise. It is really nice to have a place that is secluded from the wind. There were a couple of days you didn't want to be on the beach because of the wind but the courtyard was totally protected. I think the only issue I might of had about the place was you had to reset the wireless for the internet a couple of times a day. It only take about 30 seconds to do but after a couple of weeks it got a little old. All in all I would totally recommend this house without any hesitation.

                        Staying here was an absolute joy! Loved the inside/outside living and the 4 rooms with private baths were perfect for our large party. It was kind of like staying in our own private boutique hotel. The owners were amazing at making sure that we had everything we needed. I asked if there were beach toys for our two little boys, they said no, but when we arrived they had toys waiting there! The location to the beach was easy, down a rustic trail that often had monkeys overhead. My boys loved the tide pools and that area of the beach was best for little kids swimming. We loved the rustic aspect of the house, but be sure you do. There are animals, raccoons, that come every night to see if you left food around in the outdoor kitchen. Even when you're sitting there. I'm guessing some people like to feed them. My elderly parents were with us and they loved the place, they did make comments on how there weren't any really comfortable places to sit and relax, and I think the rest of the party would agree. Would also be a perfect place for a group of surfers, as they have a great surfboard room, and the location is a great jumping off point for some great surf spots. Though the surf out front of the house only looked good for beginners. The only other thing I would say is about the town. I've had lots of friends who had been here years ago, and their views on Tamarindo now seem like memories. The town, seems like it's grown a little too fast. That's what we loved about this house, as it was in a quite part of town. Also the food was way more expensive then we thought it would be. Don't expect third world prices. We're from LA and it was almost LA Prices! In a heart beat we would go back to stay at this amazing house!

                      About: After coming to the Tamarindo area in 1995 to surf some of the best waves in Costa Rica, we were fortunate to find land to buy so we could surf directly in front of our house. We built the Hacienda with a little bit of nostalgia for old Spanish styled California.

                      Why Tamarindo:
                      We chose to build our dream Hacienda in beautiful Playa Tamarindo, after coming here to surf some of the best breaks in Costa Rica.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Beautiful private courtyard, home is completely walled in and private, excellent location, less than a minute's walk to the beach, surfing, beach walks, swimming in the pool
