Overview

Tamarindo 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 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

Great week in Tamarindo

  • 5 of 5

The Hacienda was perfect for our group of 9 that included two small children. The week between Christmas and New Year is really crowded so it was great to have a place that was close in but also very private and quiet. If you are there at New Years, try and get a reservation at the Capitan Suiza New Years Eve Party, good music and lots of fun! The close beach is ideal for the small kids and the 10 minute walk into the smaller grocery store meant we didn't have to rent a car. We took one trip to the large (cheaper) grocery store on the other side of town and caught a taxi back. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking and the rooms we comfortable and quiet. Other areas of Tamarindo can be noisy but this was really peaceful. Explore the beach at Playa Langosta a 10 minute walk South. Definitely the best beach for surfing and body boarding and not as crowded as Tamarindo. Be a bit careful crossing the estuary though when the tide is going out, the current is really strong.

Oasis in Tamarindo

  • 5 of 5

We loved every minute of our time in Tamarindo, and especially the Hacienda.

The pictures don’t do it justice, when you open the front door and enter into the courtyard, you hear the sound of the pool waterfall and the birds, its so tranquil. The size was perfect for our family. The location is awesome, beach only a few feet away from the front door. Our kids loved boogie boarding and learning to surf, and the pool and patio are a great place to come back and relax after beach time. The staff was very friendly and helpful and did a great job. Tamarindo has lots of fun things to do, great restaurants and shops. We had a fabulous vacation, and will definitely be returning!

Best Beach House in Tamarindo

  • 5 of 5

The Hacienda was more beautiful than we expected. When you walk in the front door and look at the courtyard with the lagoon swimming pool, you feel very welcome. The house is perfect for anyone wanting to enjoy the best part of the Tamarindo beach as well as exploring the restaurants in town. The beach is a one minute walk out the front door. The neighbourhood is very peaceful and quiet compared to other houses in the area. The beach is wonderful. We used the beach chairs and bodyboards that are provided. You do not need a car, as everything is a short 10-15 minute walk from the house.

We were made to feel very welcome by Lexie and the staff. The details of fresh flowers in all the bedrooms along with fresh fruit made us feel that our holiday was just beginning. The layout of the house is "outdoor living" which

comes with lots of birds, iguanas and insects. The mosquitos did come in the early morning and afternoon, but as long as you put on plenty of insect repellent there is no discomfort. The bedrooms are very comfortable with excellent linen on the beds. The living room has a good TV and lots of sitting area to gather in the evenings.

I would recommend the Hacienda to anyone who wants to experience the best of Tamarindo. It is certainly one of our best holidays.

Very Nice House

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of 8 (6 adults & 2 small children, ages 8 and 5) and stayed for 7 nights in November. We found the home to be generally what we expected. It is definitely hacienda style, as in ALL outdoor living with the exception of the air conditioned bedrooms.

We had a few minor glitches...gate code didn't work, a non-working ac, shower head with only 4 streams of water, no toilet paper, etc., but all were resolved fairly quickly.

The only problem we had was not having an area to gather and visit as a group without having to deal with the mosquitos. We would recommend an ac unit be added to the living room area. The mosquitos were TERRIBLE, as expected - it was the end of the rainy season, but there was no place for us to gather in the evenings without being eaten alive. The living room area has doors that close, but there is no ac in that area. So, if the doors are closed at all times as we did to have a place to avoid the mosquitos at some level, it is very humid and hot and no one stays in there for very long.

In addition, this house isn't great for those with young children. If the kids wake during the night, they have to go outside to get to their parents' room. A locking door between the twin and other room would be helpful.

One minor note, there are numerous keys to this property with a lot of required locking (kitchen cabinets, safes, bedrooms, front door, etc.), so labeling the keys or somehow synching all the locks to just a few keys would be helpful.

Overall it was a good stay and we LOVE Tamarindo, so we are willing to put up with a little to enjoy this beautiful area.

Amazing Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We found this home to be exactly what we thought it would be after seeing all the pictures on VRBO. The open air areas were amazing, and it was nice to "get cool" in the evenings with the air conditioned bedrooms. The pool was very nice, and the proximity to Tamarindo is easily walkable, but also only a $4-$5 cab ride.

The only things I'd mention ( but would never cause me to lower my rating ) were that when we arrived the phone didn't work, and the internet quit working regularly. However, both were quickly fixed.

This is also house that you have to realize you are sharing with wildlife...which we found exciting. There were iguanas on the roof, curious birds in the courtyard, a raccoon or two in the late evenings, and of course an insect here are there. So if you are spooked by that you should take note ( we weren't spooked by that at all... )

The maid and the gardener were friendly and both did a great job...would love to come back and visit again!

Map

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.
