Playa Langosta House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

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

About Lexie

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.

Lexie purchased this house in 2003

Why Lexie chose Guanacaste

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

What makes this house unique

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

Great House

  • 5 of 5

House is fantastic. We have stayed multiple times and will do again. The howler monkeys come right by the house all the time along with lots of birds. The beach is close and Costa Rica is great.

2 Families trying a New Destination

  • 5 of 5

There were 8 of us that stayed at the Hacienda, which we loved! There was plenty of room for all of us. The little extra's were a nice added touch. Easy access to the beach was wonderful, we took advantage of the waves to do some surfing. The short walk to town was easy for buying groceries, dinning and shopping. Taxi's were available though for non-walkers and rainy days/nights. The caretaker is very helpful with travel to and about the Hacienda.

Absolutely beautiful property in the perfect location

  • 5 of 5

7 of us stayed in the Hacienda over Christmas/New Years and absolutely loved it. The beautiful, open-concept space was perfect for a large group to spend time together at the pool, patio or kitchen area, while also having the privacy of our own bedrooms and bathrooms. Enjoying our morning coffee at the dining table while listening to howler monkeys in the distance, and watching exotic birds splash around in the waterfall was a lovely start to each day. After experiencing this true indoor-outdoor property, I cannot imagine being cooped up in a hotel room again. It was a quick walkway down to the beach, or just a few blocks into town to get anything we needed.

The only drawback we noted was a significant ant problem in the master suite, but we brought in some ant traps that helped, and of course this is a natural consequence of indoor/outdoor living.

The property was accurately displayed online (and in fact, was almost better than we expected) and the owner responded to our emails quickly. We also felt completely secure with the coded gate and night-time security guard. We would absolutely recommend the Hacienda, and if we are ever back in Tamarindo this place would be our first choice.

Perfect for family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 7 stayed here for a week in January. The Hacienda was perfect, with private rooms and space for us to enjoy being together. We really liked the open air kitchen (did see some "wildlife" one night when we forgot to hide all the food!) and the dining area. We could all gather around the large dining table for meals and board games, as well as a big puzzle which we worked on over the vacation week. The kitchen was reasonably well equipped. We probably cooked more than other families, and it was a challenge to use the oven for baking breads since there was no temperature gauge but the baked goods came out delicious anyway!

The staff were great. We enjoyed chatting with them, especially Luciano the evening security man who liked our cooking!

The location near the beach was perfect. On our last day we saw a huge family of howler monkeys in the trees over the courtyard and on the roof. The little pool was great for relaxing and bird watching, and we loved the outdoor shower. We enjoyed the short walk to town, but liked the privacy of not being right in the town.

We were all adults, but I think that a family with very young children would need to be careful about pool safety since it is open to the main courtyard living area. For us, it was wonderful.

It was a perfect family vacation, and staying at Hacienda del Mar exceeded all our expectations!

Impeccable Vacation Destination

  • 5 of 5

We were in Costa Rica for a wedding and needed a place for a random group of people - the Hacienda was perfect. The large open concept w/ private rooms made for an ideal stay. We each had the space to visit when looking to socialize yet lots of room if looking for some privacy/downtime. The Hacienda is very well maintained and Anester was a delight managing to clean-up around us well hardly letting us know she was there. The location to the beach is also a plus as easily accessible and makes the entire town walkable. We had a great time & will be back someday.

Literally perfect location and wonderful spot for a group traveling together

  • 5 of 5

Hacienda was great - it was extremely easy to access everything in Tamarindo while still having a quiet, relaxing place to come home to. Its a 2 minute walk to the beach which is fantastic. The location truly can't be beat. We had friends staying at lux Cala Luna - which was lovely- but had no beach access. The house staff were professional and not intrusive in anyway. Lexie the owner was very responsive and accommodating and easy to deal with. Its a good layout for groups because each room has a bathroom and it feels private. We did have a little trouble bathing our youngest because they are all showers, no bathtubs but it wasn't a big deal once we figured out a system. It really could not have been better. The only thing I would do differently is I would stop at a grocery store on the way from the airport to get the necessities rather than having to turn around again as soon as we arrived - but that is on me. I highly recommend Hacienda del Mar! PS Pangas Beach Club meal was the best we had out. Yum!

Location is the key when staying in Tamarindo. The Hacienda is not on any main road. The property is very secluded and private. The Hacienda is directly across from the beach.
