  • Perfect Location and Service in Tamarindo

    "My husband and I visited Costa Rica for the first time in April 2014. We stayed at Kathy's and highly recommend it! We stayed in the garden apartment. It is within steps of the beach (as close as you can get really), has plenty of room for 2 - large bed, small kitchen area with everything you need and a large bathroom. We spent every morning drinking coffee overlooking the ocean, and every evening with a glass of wine watching the most amazing sunsets. You can walk to several restaurants/attractions from here as well. At night, we usually walked along the beach (perfect for walking) to a restaurant and would take our video camera to catch "crab footage" as there were literally hundreds of crabs wondering around on the beach. During the day, when the tide is low, walk out on the jetty and observe some marine life, or take a left on the beach from Kathy's and head around the peninsula to see another beach and pretty area (the water here when the tide is low reminded me of Northwestern Pacific Coast). One night we walked a very short distance to Capitan Suizos and had a delicious candle light dinner right on the beach. We also saw howler monkeys every day from our apartment door! Can be a pain at 5 am as they are pretty loud, but when in Costa Rica! There was maid service every day and Kathy made sure we were taken care of. We had a slow leak in our tire on our rental, and she even made sure we were aired up everyday. If you have more than 2 in your party, she rents out the larger house which we checked out for future stays, and it looks very accommodating as well. Kathy is really sweet and accommodating from the time we inquired about her property until we left for the airport. If you want great service, perfect location and clean and comfortable lodging, stay here!!!"

  • Best Early Christmas, Wedding Anniversary Family Celebration, and Early Birthday Gift

    "We booked the condo several months in advanced. It was everything and more than expected. The leasing agent provided amazing recommendations for food and activities for our stay. He provided staff who assisted with transportation from Liberia. The rental was beautifully appointed and in the center of Tamarindo. Beach access was seconds away. The people were amazing and the food options were international. Our agent recommended Seasons, Pangas, Patagonia, and several other amazing culinary options. If you need assistance with setting up activities the staff are there to hook you up. All I can say is I wish this was our second home and that our agent is the best!!!"

  • Hate packing to leave!

    "We arrived last Saturday to this Costa Rican Utopia and don't want to leave! Hacienda Pinilla is a waterfront area just south of Tamarindo. The beach club is great for drinks during the sunset and dinner. There is a golf club and a stable. The JW Marriott is on the property offering a pool and several restaurants, in addition to a gift shop. I suppose you never have to leave the compound. This Villa is perfect for our family. There is plenty of room to stretch out. There are 3 bedrooms: 2 up and 1 down. There is an upstairs livingroom/tv area. Downstairs is a large living area/dining area/kitchen. The kitchen is decently equipped for a quick meal. The unique feature to this Villa is there is a great view of the Pacific from the back of the house; Not all of the Villas have this view. Across the driveway is a pool and gym, which we all visited daily. The entire family has really enjoyed this Villa. There is a great woman who runs the Villa. She is a wealth of knowledge! Restaurants, activities, doctors etc! I had a few questions for her before we arrived, and she replied quickly! Some other things that might be helpful: There is a grocery store in Tamarindo that has anything you need. You need a car to get around. The Costa Rican people are so genuinely kind and helpful. Most speak some English but really enjoy it when you try to speak Spanish! We try to eat off the property: the Marriott has very expensive food with mediocre taste. The beach club at Hacienda Pinilla is really good! Witches Rock surf camp in Tamarindo has a great restaurant, eat at Joes, where you can sit near the beach and eat some great food! Best meal we had. Volcano brewery is near there also. Lola's is walking distance from the beach club, and easier to walk than drive if you are able., and has some great food! It was a great house in a great place with terrific people running it. We are sad to leave tomorrow, but know we will be back!"

  • Tamarindo Vacation

    "We spent 2 fantastic weeks at this property in Tamarindo. JuanRo and Sebastian, the concierges, were incredibly helpful with lining up excursions, recommending restaurants, and taking us grocery shopping. The villa and pool were beautiful and private. The use of the Beach Club was also a bonus. We would often spend our mornings hanging out at our pool and then would head down to the Beach Club for the afternoon. The beach club has a lovely pool area, decent restaurant (with amazing deserts), and of course lounge chairs on the beach. We did not rent a car while we were there and I didn't feel like we ever needed one. The town of Tamarindo was a 15 minute walk, the beach club about 7 minutes. All excursions picked us right up at our door. We had an absolutely fabulous vacation and can't wait to come back to Costa Rica!"
