We built this home to enjoy our vacations together with family and friends and have others enjoy it too. We are a very active family. The surrounding areas have so much to offer us from surfing and boogeyboarding to Golf, horseback riding to tennis, beautiful private beaches to walk and relax on. Everything we love doing is right here less than 5 minutes away.
There is plenty to do here. Surfing and boogey boarding every day, swimming in warm clean clear water on beautiful empty beaches, tennis and golf, delicious fresh fish and steak in inexpensive outdoor beachfront restaurants , wonderful friendly people.. in a very upscale safe private beautiful environment away from all the crowds. What more can one wish for?
And inexpensive daily maid service to take care of us.!!!
Our family had discussed going to somewhere that was guaranteed warm the year before, so we started looking. We found this Hacienda and started to pursue it for our family vacation and retreat in the winter months of the US. This is the place to go: This Villa is 5 STAR all the WAY. From the villa, to it's Amenities, to the Staff; outstanding, especially the property manager - excellent. She was able to handle any of the few inconveniences that we encountered.. The location, location, location, fantastic! Easily assessable to the Beech Club, which the family utilized as much as possible, - pool double layered for the children, the food, excellent, the staff, beyond expectations. The Marriott for additional venues of food and sites, outstanding.
All in All what a Great Place to stay and have as your home base. We would go back in a heartbeat!
We loved Casa Marbella. It was spacious and beautiful. We wished the pool was heated so we could spend more time in it. The kitchen was well stocked and easy to prepare meals. We will recommend this home to others staying in Costa Rica. Thank you for sharing.
My family of 8 visited Costa Rica in July 2016 and stayed at Casa Marbella. It is a beautiful, spacious house and well-appointed. The beds were great and I slept like a baby. Plenty of restrooms for my wife and three daughters. There are two masters with huge bathrooms. Our large family never felt cramped. Overall a great house to spend your vacation. I was anticipating the house being located more in the jungle but it is actually in a subdivision and you had to go through 2 guard gates. Although the backyard does have some trees and vegetation it was not as dense as I thought it would be. We did see the fruit bats that camped each day on the front porch awning. Also saw a tarantula. Neither the bats nor the tarantula paid us any attention and I thought it was actually a cool experience. Didn't see any monkeys at the house.
The pool was a lot of fun but we only used it 3 or 4 times and never for any length of time. It is a bit narrower than the pictures looked to me. But we spent a lot of time at Playa Avellana and the Beach Club. Playa Avellana is so sandy and soft. The Beach Club beach is a bit rocky and I stumped my toes a few times under water. The Beach Club and Playa Avellana are about a five minute walk from each other. The water temperature is enjoyable and when I had enough of the ocean, I never really got too hot sitting on the beach either. Maybe that explains why we were at the beach for almost 10 hours one day. We loved the beaches. Sunsets are beautiful. I recommend eating at Lola's at Playa Avellana also. Sooo good.
We ate at home most nights and the kitchen was more than adequate. Food prices are bit expensive, more than the US I thought. But it is a tourist area. The golf cart came in handy when going to the JW Marriott and the Beach Club. I'm also a runner so running inside the property was no problem and I found some cool routes.
All in all, this house is great. A cell phone was provided which was a nice touch. Cyn, the property manager, was great and booked a lot of excursions for us and plugged the routes into the phone so we wouldn't get lost.
I highly recommend Pura Aventura for ziplines. We also went scuba diving at Catalina Island and saw 3 bull sharks and a group of manta rays. What a great thrill. We used Aqua Rica and Billy was great to dive with but they did have to reschedule us. Small inconvenience.
But if you visit Costa Rica, be aware the roads are really bad. Recommend a SUV is you rent a car.
From the moment we contacted the owner regarding our vacation up until check out, we were impressed. The house was just as described and fit 9 of us comfortably (2 families = 4 adults and 5 children). The house was perfectly located in Hacienda Pinilla with access to the JW Marriott as well as the hacienda pinilla beach club. Cynthia was very accommodating and helped us with dinner reservations as well as setting up activities. Would highly recommend Pangas and Green Papaya to eat, both located in Tamarindo. The highlight of the trip was taking surf lessons with Rafa. Also, the housekeeper was a wonderful addition as she cooked authentic Costa Rican food and cleaned during our stay. We did pay to rent the golf cart, but found that we used our rental cars instead.
We were 8 in the house - for 10 days! The house is beautilful - very spacious and confortable. The bedrooms are great, and the AC was a must. The pool and barbecue area was of great use! Great location inside the Hacienda. Hoping to go back soon...
We had a wonderful family vacation at this property. The owner and property manager made our visit seamless and were ver accommodating. It was our first visit to Costa Rica and it was a great choice. The property was well equipped, clean, organized, air-conditioned and in a great location if you prefer to be in a more residential, resort like location. We had monkeys in the back yard and a great surfing beach at a 3 minute drive. A rental car is necessary and renting the golf cart was also very helpful to get to the beach club.
