Tamarindo house description

Untitled Document

CASA SANTA LUZ DEL MAR is a 5,000 SF Spanish colonial inspired residence located in a wonderful and quiet residential beach front community a short 10 minute drive to Tamarindo. Or as we like to say, close enough to enjoy the spectacular nightlife, international cuisine and great shopping, but far enough away to enjoy the tranquility and privacy of some of Costa Rica's most beautiful beaches without the crowd of a popular tourist destination.

Those who stay at CASA SANTA LUZ DEL MAR enjoy complete privacy and luxury, in an authentic Costa Rican hacienda surrounding. Lush tropical grounds with a large infinity pool and spacious outdoor living with all the comforts of home make this recently built estate home one of Hacienda Pinilla's most desired properties. Enjoy the proximity to the beach, golf course, beach club and all that Hacienda Pinilla has to offer.

Our staff is available to cater to your every need, with concierge and tour planning, to housekeeping and everything else you need to ensure your vacation is indeed a vacation to remember, we are here to serve.

Casa Santa Luz del Mar embodies the tropical indoor/outdoor lifestyle.

The main living areas and master bedrooms open up to the spacious outdoor living area and saltwater pool. Relax pool side enjoying an occasional encounter with your only neighbors, the resident howler monkey troop and yellow head parrots that pay an occasional visit to say hello and remind you you are in the tropical paradise of Costa Rica. Venture outside Casa Santa Luz and find everything you need for the perfect vacation right at your back door, Hacienda Pinilla is a private Costa Rican oasis!

This home has three bedroom suites with private bathroom and two additional bedrooms that share a spacious bathroom. Two master bedroom suites open to the rear pool area and include king size beds. The remaining three bedrooms offer 3 queen size beds. There is a very spacious living area that includes and oversized kitchen with everything you would expect in a luxury kitchen and two large dining areas. An oversize family room with 60' plasma with DVD and large dining room and a small den with 36' plasma and dvd player for the kids.


Guanacaste is the destination of choice for surf travelers. Hacienda Pinilla, where this house is located, is ground zero for surf spots. This is a 4500 acre community with several miles of coastline and it occupies all the land between Tamarindo and Avellanas. Little Hawaii, a big playful right hander is the closest. the famous Lolas is just 4-5 minutes to the south, Play Negra is just 10 minutes away, and Langosta is 5 minutes to the north to just name a few of our waves. Depending on tide, wind and swell direction one of the many breaks in this community is going off at most times. Contact the owner prior to your visit for a detailed guide on where and when to surf. Also if you need boards or lessons for surf while you are here these can be coordinated and provided easily.

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About: Bruce and Cheryl Mckillican have lived in the area for the last 11 years with their three children. We love Costa Rica and particularly like the lifestyle offered within Hacienda Pinilla.

                      Why Tamarindo:
                      A property can look good, and this one does but how it feels may be the best indicator of quality. This house has a great feel. It is new and modern in all features with a classic colonial look. The house itself is in a protected quiet and secluded place and yet it offers easy movement to all the favorite destinations, like The beach club, The golf course, Only a 5 minute drive to the famous Lolas in Avellanas. Still it is located within Hacienda Pinilla and can enjoy the amenities and privacy it offers.
