About Carrie Svendsen
We have enjoyed going to Costa Rica for the past 15 years and have traveled throughout the country. We live full time in San Diego, California and enjoy visiting as often as possible. Many of our trips with friends and family have brought us to Hacienda Pinilla where we have stayed as a guest in this very same villa. We are now excited to share our Costa Rica home with friends and fellow travelers. To us, the experiences and memories we've had here with friends and family is time well spent!
Carrie Svendsen purchased this Townhome in 2017
Why Carrie Svendsen chose Tamarindo
This villa is located within Jardines de Palma Real, a peaceful and beautiful neighborhood within Hacienda Pinilla. It is walking distance of the JW Marriott, Playa Mansita, Playa Bonita, and Playa Avellanes. The pool and private owners/guest gym for Palma Real is very close to the villa.
What makes this Townhome unique
There is much to discover within and around Hacienda Pinilla, whether you horseback riding, golfing, exploring miles of beautiful coastline. The Beach Club at Avellanes is a favorite place to enjoy a meal and drinks poolside between surf sessions or walks along one of the most beautiful beaches in Guanacaste.

Very nice and comfortable house, great location, plenty of things to do, nice restaurants near by, got to see turtles, monkeys, squirrels, deers and beautiful birds several times! The best: access to Playa Bonita at waking distance to watch the sunset.
So glad you enjoyed your stay! We love walking to Playa Bonita for sunsets as well. It sounds like you had the true Costa Rica experience with all the animals.
Pura Vida, Carrie
Amazing stay at Pinilla
we look forward to coming back!
Thank you! We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay and we look forward to having you return. Pura Vida!
Hacienda Pinilla Condo
Really nice and BIG condo. We had 4 people but you could easily fit 6 or more. Not too far from beaches - I rode the bike to Avellanes some mornings. Its a decent ride but not too bad. Riding through the country in costa rica on my bike with my surfboard is actually a pretty sweet way to start the day!
We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay. My husband likes to start his day in Costa Rica the same way...biking to Avellanas with his surf board. Pura Vida at its finest!
Great family house
The house was great for my family of 4. The pool was right next to the house and the kids loved it.
Great vacation rental
The Los Olas Villa was a great find in Hacienda Pinilla. Spacious two bedroom, 2.5 bath unit that could accommodate up to 6 adult guests comfortably. Carrie (the owner) and Maria (property manager) were responsive to all our questions and needs. This Villa is located in the Jardines de Palma Real community and is close to a wonderful swimming pool that is lightly used and a small but well equipped gym. Sunsets at Playa Bonita were fabulous and about a 10 minute walk from the Villa. If you are looking for restaurants several options are available at the Marriott located about a 5 minute walk from the Villa. We had dinner at the Marriott’s Azul Grill - outdoor dining overlooking the ocean. Good (not great) food, but a wonderful setting and very good service.
The Villa does back up to one of the main roads in Hacienda Pinilla and the road leading to the Marriott. Some people might find the traffic a bit annoying if they want to use the outdoor patio area, but it did not interfere with our enjoyment.
We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay! We frequently dine at the Marriott restaurants, especially since it’s such a quick walk from the villa. The outside patio at the villa is our favorite spot for breakfast while we watch for monkeys. Thank you for the review and we hope you stay with us again.
We had a wonderful stay at this villa! The property was clean, comfortable, and centrally located. Carrie was also a very responsive host and would respond within a couple of hours to our questions.
I’m so glad you enjoyed your stay. We hope you can come again and stay a little longer. Pura Vida!
