About Federico Cubas

Traveler, nature lover and surfer. Born and raised in Costa Rica but currently living in Panama because of work. I am constantly between airports, hotels and meetings and although I enjoy every aspect of my job with all the different countries and cities I have had the opportunities to live and visit; I am always counting the days to come back to Costa Rica and enjoy as much time as possible in Pinilla. Not sure if is the night sky which seems to have so much more stars than where I live, not sure if it is the treeline landscape I see from the ocean every time I am out in the water, the trees and their branches that seem to embrace the balcony or the cool breeze from the Guanacaste dry season. I still haven't quite figure it out, but I love it here.

Federico Cubas purchased this villa in 2013

Why Federico Cubas chose Tamarindo

Born and raised in Costa Rica I've always cherished been surrounded by nature and the lay back atmosphere that used to rein the Costa Rica of my youth. Being on the road most of the year I wanted to find a place where I could come back to with my family and soak in the beauty and peace of Costa Rica's nature, beaches and waves. I had visited Hacienda Pinilla many times for surfing and was always mesmerized by the inspiring way developers have respected the natural settings and mixed houses, villas and other buildings with nature and reforestation. But it wasn't until my father found the villa that I realized that developers had also found a way to blend nature with comfort, security and lay back atmosphere of a suburb like community. I was immediately hooked: a place that feels like a home, in a quite neighborhood surrounded by nature, few minutes away from what seems as an endless array of activities like surfing, snorkeling, diving, fishing, hiking, biking, riding and golf; and just minutes away from a town that has just everything you need from banks and services to shops, restaurants, bars and sunset lounges.

What makes this villa unique

You will notice that our villa is not your common vacation rental, but a home designed and furnished to enjoy the time spent here

Luxury Village!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this beautiful villa. We’re looking forward for going back soon! It’s well equipped with everything we needed when traveling with kids. The Condo has a nice pool and we really enjoyed the beach club and the Langosta beach. The mountain back trail was a real adventure!

Great property

  • 5 of 5

Great property and great owners. They were always available anytime we needed them. And central A/C was a big plus. And Hacienda Pinilla offers everything a vacationer might need. Highly recommend this property!

Spring Break

  • 3 of 5

Thank you to the Cubas family and especially Lili for a wonderful stay. Lili kept the house immaculate and was willing to help in any way. The villa is comfortable and welcoming. We appreciated the bikes that were available to us. The surrounding Hacienda Pinilla was disappointing as it is very spread out/barren and unpopulated (appears the development did not proceed as planned), the lake was empty and it was very hot and dry this time of year. That said, it was a great location from which to base ourselves to drive to other spots. For beach access, we mostly hung out and surfed at Playa Avellanas/Lolas.

Beautiful villa near hotel

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Villa Esperanza. The condo is perfectly kept and so clean. We had full kitchen to cook and filtered water in the kitchen to drink.

There is plenty of room to spread out.

The villa is within walking distance to the Marriott.

The owners met us upon arrival and gave us a full tour. Very lovely family.

Fantastic spot!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I brought our 3 kids (11, 10 and 5) to Fredrico's house the first week in August. The villa was beautiful!!! It was spotless and came with everything we needed :) We were greeted by Fredrico's mother and father who couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. We knew if we needed anything during our 8 day stay, we could count on him, but we didn't need a thing!!! There was a housekeeper who came everyday who was lovely and took care of all of the things you don't want to do on vacation :) The kitchen is beautiful and had everything we needed to cook a yummy breakfast every morning. We were a 2 minute ride to the beach club which is our favorite spot! This is our third trip to Costa Rica and this is definitely our favorite spot we have stayed yet. Thank you to the Cubas for making our trip so enjoyable!

Perfect getaway villa.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an amazing time at the villa, as it was more than described in the listing. The villa was beautiful, well-maintained, cleaning service was provided daily, onsite security was a plus. The property is secluded, but close enough to plenty of activities, if you rent a car. The Beach Club access included with the rental is well worth the $10 resort fee. The beaches (short walk) were great for collecting shells and exploring tide pools.

The owner met us on arrival and was very supportive in addressing our questions and issues throughout our stay.

Overall, this villa is a perfect getaway for a family looking to experience Costa Rica in an upscale fashion for a reasonable price.
