The residence: as featured in several international architecture and fine construction media outlets. This showcase mansion was designed by world renowned architect Miguel Podolsky. The elegant residence features 6-bedroom/6-bath and offers three luxurious master suites and nearly 8,000 sq. Ft. of exquisite Spanish colonial architecture. The combination of an open floor plan with a traditional aesthetic that showcases old world craftsmanship: and timeless design elements, results in an innovative design that is well thought out, practical and imaginative. The distinctively Spanish style melds with the finest materials and finishes to create spaces that are inviting and eclectic; sophisticated yet comfortable.

Upon entering, one is greeted by a great room and comfortable dining room area, which flow seamlessly from the professionally equipped kitchen and breakfast bar. These spaces feature rich Spanish colonial tile floors, granite counter tops, imported hardware and subtle accents. The poolside master suite, with cool blue tropical tones, opens to the outdoor terrace, with an intricate brick ceiling, while a second bedroom with lovely exterior views, fitness/laundry room and powder room complete the 1st floor spaces. A splendid staircase, with an artistically inlaid tile design, leads to the 2nd floor entertainment room, with soaring 25 feet vaulted hardwood ceiling, suspended by a massive hardwood center beam and stunning tropical hardwood floors and baseboards throughout. These amazing hardwood features are made of "Almendro" or mountain almond wood -- the only dense tropical hardwood that meets the same structural specifications as steel. The area is bathed in natural light through large windows and includes a wine bar, 100-inch HD home theater and lounge/piano area. Gorgeous handcrafted wooden doors open to the covered balcony with cane ceilings and large hammocks for relaxing afternoons. The large master suite exudes a low key but elegant ambiance with rustic accents and a soothing pigmented stucco. It is flanked by a spacious bath with double showers, and adjoining walk-in closet. Ample twin-suites offer further accommodations as well as the versatility to serve as a home office, close to the large master suite.

The location: set in the exclusive Las Golondrinas beachfront community at Hacienda Pinilla, beach resort and residential community, this exquisite custom home provides direct access to world-class beaches, surfing, championship golf, tennis, sport-fishing and equestrian facilities. The 5-star JW Marriott Guanacaste resort and spa is just a short walk from the residence. The residence is a short 2 minute walk to the ocean.

The rising driveway is inlaid with intricate patterns of native slate and antique brick. Taking full advantage of the homes direct southern exposure, the infinity edge salt-filtered swimming pool, serves as the central water feature in true Spanish architectural tradition. It blends with the home's main exterior terrace and a covered pool pavilion, with bathroom, shower and outdoor grill, to form an extensive outdoor social area for entertaining friends and family.

Welcome To Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Hard to believe, but Casa Orquideas is even more beautiful than the pictures show! The upper floor has ceilings that must be 25 feet high and simply breathtaking. Because the house is entirely concrete, we never used the air-conditioning (though it is there throughout the house, an unusual find in Costa Rica) as a cool breeze coming kept us the right temperature even though it was 80 degrees and sunny outside. Each of the six bedrooms is spacious most with it's own en suite with shower and/or tub. The beds (all kings except one room) are comfortable with gorgeous linens. The living room and dining room are huge and luxuriously appointed with high-end couches chairs and tables. The kitchen, with its large center island and six element gas stove and oversize oven is a chef's dream. Each room has a beautiful view. The sunsets are indescribably beautiful, made even more so by 40 foot infinity pool which blends seamlessly into the landscaping and reflects oranges and pinks of the evening sky as the sun falls behind the horizon. (BTW, we could not keep the kids out of the pool during the day!). Every detail has been anticipated, from the very well stocked kitchen (modern appliances and loads of flatware, glassware and silverware, all obviously recently purchased and no doubt at great expense) to ultra plush beach towels, lots of comfy deck chairs out by the pool and a TV room that kept the kids occupied with video games while the adults enjoyed making dinner and a relaxing drink upstairs. Casa Orquideas took luxury up to a new height for us. We have rented vacation homes for the last 6 years, but none can match the stunning beauty and completeness of Casa Orquideas. While not inexpensive, the value for money is tremendous and worth every penny. We will be back next year!

Our Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a place to stay in Costa Rica, look no further! We just returned from a week stay at Casa Orquideas. We had never rented a home, but since we were traveling with our adult children and their spouses we decided a house was the way to go. I searched many properties before coming across Casa Orquideas. The photos were beautiful, however, the things you can't see in the photos are how comfortable the home is. Not only is it beautifully decorated and well stocked, everything is of great quality. The bedding was amazing! Our favorite part of Casa Orquideas was the homey atmosphere. Although we did enjoy the location and it's activities, the time we spent at the house were among our favorite. There really is no need to leave. We spent days by the pool, snorkeling, kayaking, and on rainy days playing games at the dining room table. Mickey was so helpful. He checked in on us each day. He arranged everything for us from snorkel trips, fishing and diving, to water taxis and dinner reservations. Any questions or concerns we had, Maura was there to also help. Mickey arranged a fishing trip. The fishing was great and they cleaned and filleted the fish for us to cook that night. It was delicious. We also took a snorkeling trip with XploreCostaRica tours. The snorkel trip was a highlight of the week. We saw dolphins, stingrays, numerous fish and even a sea turtle. If Mickey recommends an activity or restaurant, you can expect it to be good. He really knows the area and has earned the respect of the local people. Maura is the care taker for Casa Orquideas. She was so kind and helpful. Maura was so informative about Costa Rica. She pointed out different fish and wildlife and showed us how to eat sugar cane and coconuts. She even gave us a gallon of coconut water to enjoy. Maura made dinner for us the night of our arrival. She made traditional Costa Rician food consisting of chicken with rice and beans. It was an amazing meal. After a full day of traveling it was a treat to have a meal cooked for us. Maura also cooked breakfast and lunch and delivered afternoon snacks to us. Always an unexpected treat. We were a little nervous about renting a private home, however, all our concerns disappeared within minutes of our arrival. We loved the home, Mickey and Maura thanks so much, that it was sad to leave.

"Incredible Luxurious Mansion!!!

  • 5 of 5

We must start off by stating the home is incredible. Simply put, but grossly understated, this place is amazing! I came here with my fiancé and two other couples. Start to finish, this experience was exactly as we had dreamed it. The patio is a great spot to hang out, with beautiful views that are breathtaking. The rooms were spacious and luxurious. My husband is a chef and fell in love with the gourmet kitchen. Everything was beautiful. Our experience was heightened by the owner, Mickey. He was so helpful in telling us about local spots to eat, shop, and snorkel. He was very professional. The tour agency, XploreCostaRica, came recommended by the owner as well, and we LOVED every tour we booked through them. Swimming in the 40' feet lap pool was the best part. This home is direct beachfront with its own private beach and bars/restaurants. Beach Club and the Marriott is close by and had amazing pizza and other food! This place is a gem, as is the whole town of Hacienda Pinilla. I would recommend this to anyone I know!

Better than 5 star hotel

  • 5 of 5

This was our first booking of a location on VRBO and Mickey made the process easy and painless. He is very responsive to emails and phone calls. The property and location is truly luxurious. The house is private and spacious, with 3 bedrooms downstairs and 3 upstairs each isolated and quiet. The home came with pool toys, beginner surfboard, bicycles, and golf carts. Maura was excellent, very punctual and rooms and house cleaned daily. She even cut fresh fruit and washed our clothes at no extra charge. The house is walking distance to a beach, but if you want to swim you will need to go to the Marriott or Beach Club. I would recommend the beach club with the vast sandy beach and $10 payment/credit per adult. Prices are very reasonable considering the tourist location of Tamarindo. Little Hawaii surf spot is right in front of the beach club and was our daily go to place to surf. The beach club is short 6 minute golf cart ride away.

If you truly want to relax opt for the private chef service. We had two dinners prepared by them that were incredible and you easily pay $100 a person in LA. The Marriott also has 3 restaurants in a short golf cart drive away. The price includes tip and tax. I.e. Red Tuna dinner with side dishes $24, which I consider reasonable. If you want to travel into Tamarindo the Marriott has a shuttle server for $14 round trip or you are a large group there are private shuttle service.

We were 5 families traveling with children ages 5 to 2.5, we did 2 tours with Xplorecostarica who is familiar with Casa de las Orquideas. They picked us up and dropped us off at our door. We did the Palos Verde boat ride to and saw various monkeys, birds, iguanas, and crocodilles. We then took our 5 year old and adventurous 3 year old to Vandara for a adventure combo (Horseback riding, zip lineing, Trapiche tour, watersilde, mud bath, and hot spring) the best part of our tours. The children had to pay full price and rode with the guides for safety reasons. We all had a blast.

As with a home or hotel some things needed adjustment and Mickey has someone one that same night to fix the issue. Very impressive.

Overall the best vacation with relaxation and fun wrapped into one. Great for adults, kids, and families.

5 star fantastic vacation felt like our own private resort.

  • 5 of 5

We just had the opportunity to visit Casa Orquideas and it was amazing. The house itself, as you can clearly see from the pictures, is everything you could want. I later described it as a "resort" rather than a house- and that is exactly what you will find. The rooms, the accommodations, the amenities - all are phenomenal. But if you want to talk about the grounds outside the back doors, that's what will inspire you. We spent probably 90% of our time out on the patio, by the pool, grilling in the outdoor kitchen, and enjoying the oasis... Not only all of this, but Casa Orquideas is well-known enough among the locals that the taxi, which you will use for the majority of any transportation, if you ever want to leave, will know exactly which pier to take you to at the end of a nice evening in town. Just a wonderful experience. If you don't take the opportunity to enjoy it, you might be missing the best spot in Hacienda Pinilla.

From start to finish, the Casa Orquideas experience surpassed all other home stays for me (and I have had some great ones)! The communication with the owner was timely, professional, & extremely informative. Mickey patiently worked with our large group, and we knew exactly what to expect in terms of travel, arrival, accommodations, & amenities. There were no surprises--except perhaps being even more blown away by the beautiful home & country than we expected! The utterly gorgeous house stands just meters from the beautiful private beach, which can be enjoyed with a swim, kayak ride, or simply gazing down and admiring the wildlife. The waves were so fun to watch! The group loved enjoying drinks in the pool overlooking the water, & the massages with Miranda poolside. That was just one memorable activity the owner coordinated for us--another favorite was a magnificent snorkeling cruise complete with the best rum punch of my life & lots of turtle sightings! We also loved taking long walks & runs on the beach, and there were some great bars & restaurants within walking distance. The golf cart were the most fun way to travel, and we took in surrounding beaches & sights with this easy-to-use transportation. The friendliness and respect of the Costa Rica people made a strong impression on me--it really is a wonderful place. In terms of the house itself, it exceeded any of our expectations. Beautifully appointed and impeccably maintained, I left wanting to build my next house with the stunning stained concrete of Casa Orquideas! The layout of the house was perfect for our group; everyone had their own comfortable bed, with little retreats for people to take time to read on a comfy couch, take in an incredible view from the numerous balconies (I saw two shooting stars! AMAZING!), or snooze in the mid-afternoon in the hammocks. The bathrooms were lovely (and we had enough for the big group, which is important), and I had the pleasure of enjoying views from the ginormous walk-in showers. We used the kitchen and bar a lot, cooking great meals including grilled lobster and fresh ceviche with the numerous top-of-the-line appliances & utensils. The on-site house manager was courteous, answered all our requests and questions, and made us feel like a part of his family when he introduced his 2 year old son! The house also felt very secure--exotic yet homey.
