Great VRBO rental
"Our family of 5 stayed in this condo at Hacienda Pinilla the week of 4/4/2015-4/11/2015. This was our second trip to Pinilla but our first stay in this condo. The condo was well equipped for our needs and a fabulous location. My seven year old loved the fact that there is a pool right outside the front door of the condo! I would highly recommend Hacienda Pinilla as one of the best places to stay if planning a trip to Costa Rica. Other reviews mention on property activities in Hacienda like horseback riding, golf, and the beach club with great service and food. The JW Marriott is next to the condo but very high priced and the food is average at best. My sons surf and we surfed everyday at playa Avellanas near Lola's. There are great dining options off the property as well such as Lola's, The Beach Box, Mauna Loa and Hotel Mediteranneo. Tamarindo is only a short drive. We had a personal chef come the first night we arrived at the recommendation of the property manager. It was excellent, one of the best meals we had while there, so be sure to ask about that option if you book here! Overall, a great condo and location and I would highly recommend this condo to anyone coming to Costa Rica."

Good way to see how the locals live on permanent vacation
"My wife and I visited Casa Boaz on our honeymoon and had a good time in Tamarindo. We stayed in the Casita Romantica, which was plenty of room with a full kitchen and bathroom. The property itself is great for nature lovers, as there is wildlife all over the property, which you will want to become comfortable and acquainted with if you're going to enjoy Costa Rica, because it's everywhere. The pool was nice and cool and the outdoor shower was key. Dee was kind enough to allow us to use the surfboards for a few days, and we had a great time at the beach. She pointed us in the direction of some very good restaurants that you likely wouldn't find otherwise. She was very helpful.
Casa Boaz would likely be perfect for a large group of people who wanted to stay together, but also wanted their own privacy. The property isn't too far from the town, and as long as it's not raining (muddy roads), it's not that bad of a walk. Otherwise, I'd rent a car, bike or ATV to zip around to some cool spots. Thanks again, Dee."

"Congratulations! If you are reading this review, you have just made the best discovery you will ever make. My husband and I found Casa Doshack four years ago, and we have returned for longer and longer stays each winter since that time. It is truly a perfect little cottage in the midst of a tropical paradise.
Located directly on the quiet end of a long, beautiful beach, Casa Doshack has been (and will continue to be) a wonderful place for us to relax, recharge, and enjoy a peaceful break from our busy lives at home. Here is a sample of our typical day at Casa Doshack: We rise early and take a run or walk on the approximately 1½ mile beach, which is nearly deserted at sunrise. Then we drink coffee and visit as we sit in rocking chairs on the veranda, which looks out over the ocean. We spend the mornings reading or writing or taking pictures of the exotic wildlife, which surrounds us in the beautiful garden. We usually go for a swim in the ocean or take another walk along the beach. Then we prepare lunch in our fully-equipped kitchen and eat at the big table on the veranda, or we wander down the beach to one of the many restaurants in Tamarindo.
After lunch, we have time for more reading or we take a snooze in one of the hammocks in the lanai on the edge of the property overlooking the beach. Sometimes we go on an excursion in the afternoon, or we stroll into town to pick up groceries, visit the Farmer’s Market, or shop at the many boutiques and gift stores lining the streets of Tamarindo. We always make time for another swim and another walk. At dusk we make our way to the beach for a view of the gorgeous sunset.
In the evening, we prepare dinner on the grill and dine on the veranda or stroll along the beach one more time for dinner at a restaurant. We look forward to settling into our comfy bed where the sound of the ocean and the feel of the breeze lulls us to sleep.
Kathy Doshack, the owner of Casa Doshack, goes out of her way to take care of her guests, arranging activities and transportation and offering great advice and information. Her cheerful housekeeper Illeana keeps the house in order and will cook wonderful Costa Rican meals upon request. The friendly gardener Manuel entertains us as he maintains the pristine garden.
To give an adequate description of the virtues of this wonderful place would take many more paragraphs, but you really need to experience Casa Doshack for yourself to understand its magic."
