About the property

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

Hacienda del Pacifico is a newly renovated 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'.

We have recently installed MistAway system that protects this property from mosquitoes & other pests. The botanical, all-natural insecticide allows you to enjoy the comforts of the outdoors without the worry of bugs.

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 style California.

Lexie purchased this house in 2003

Why Lexie chose 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.

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

Tropical Perfection

  • 5 of 5

We arrived late in the evening and from the moment I woke up I fell in love with the beautiful lush garden which all the rooms look in towards.

We really loved the outdoor shower for after surfing, and also enjoyed the kitchen being open to one side which made for very sociable cooking/dining. The small but perfectly formed pool was a great hit and was used everyday despite the beach being only a minutes walk away!

The property was immaculately clean and tidy, and the maid service was excellent.

Thank you, and we cannot wait to visit again!

Tranquil paradise

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time during our stay at Hacienda del Pacifico. The house was close to town yet a quiet and private retreat. The beautiful white sand beach was just steps away. I couldn't imagine a better place to spend our holiday. The staff was very helpful and gracious as well.

Amazing house, perfect location

Beautiful, open air house perfect for 4 couples. A family of monkeys visited us the first day! Just a few steps from the beach.

Great property with amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 with kids ranging from 3-18 yrs old stayed at this property over the holidays. Each room was spacious with it's own bathroom. Outdoor shower was awesome. The pool was great and the very short walk to the beach was even better. Walking distance to town and lots of activities to do around the area. Host and housekeeper were very helpful! Pura-vida!

Perfection in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect location to all Tamarindo has to offer but nestled off a quiet side street with a 2 minute walk to the beach. Everything about Hacienda del Pacifico was perfect for our group of 8 adults (4 couples). Everyone had a private room and bathroom and enjoyed congregating in the common areas. The tranquility was more then the pictures could do justice. Lexie, Ani, and Lionel were more than accommodating. Lexie's communication from start to finish was superb and our Housekeeper's were extremely kind and through. We HIGHLY recommend Hacienda del Pacifico and wish we could have stayed longer! Thank you for an amazing and memorable time! We will see you again next year!

Magical Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

The Hacienda is everything the photographs show but it is much more beautiful than we imagined.

From the moment we walked through the door, we were transported into a secluded garden with an

atmosphere that can only be called "magical". Once we got into the Costa Rican routine of waking up

to the sound of the howling monkeys and bird calls, we slowly took our mug of coffee to the beach for the

sunrise, the rest of the day just came and went with the Hacienda being a perfect place to keep coming

back to in the day for food, a nap, or a dip in the lagoon shaped pool.

The Hacienda is half a minute walk from rock pools, mangrove trees, and the most beautiful view of the bay.

The town of Tamarindo has everything you want in the way of shops and restaurants and is a 10 minutes

walk down the beach from the Hacienda. It is fun to go there, but a delight to come back to the quiet and

tranquility of the Hacienda.

The bedrooms are lovely and look out on to the patio. The beds and sheets are extremely comfortable.

The kitchen is well stocked and if you need anything, the manager, will get what you need. There are

mosquitos but if you make sure you spray yourself a few times in the day, it should do the trick. The maid

and gardner did their very best to make us feel at home.

We would recommend this house to anyone who wants a relaxing and easy time for a holiday at the beach.

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.
