Perfect home for an amazing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our family of 12, very spacious allowing us to each have our own space. The home was beautiful and well equiped with everything you need. Stayed 8 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. The home owner and home manager Cyn were very helpful and accomodating. The 2 master suites are very large and stunning. We saw so much wildlife right outside our doors each day. Having the pool right in our backyard was a bonus! If you are looking to stay in this area of CR with a large group, you cannot go wrong with Casa Marabella! Pura Vida!

Great house and location for large group, with room to spread out.

  • 4 of 5

Just returned from our family trip to Costa Rica. We had a great time, the house was a perfect place to relax and spend time together. We needed a large space for 7 adults and 6 children ages 13 -17 months. We had room for those who needed space to themselves once in a while, but plenty of room to come together to play games or watch a movie. Anyone who didn't participate had another living room for relaxing and visiting. The pool is nice, cool and refreshing when it is so warm outside. There is lots of room outside for sunbathing and visiting.

Communication with Diana was great & helpful. Cynthia (concierge) was wonderful, responded to every question we had and helped us plan a great trip to a volcano and hot springs area. She was very helpful when our littlest one got ill, needed some medical attention and pointed us to a local English speaking pharmacist, (the pharmacist realized the baby needed a Dr, they made a call to the local Dr (close by) to explain and the Dr waited for us. He examined the baby and prescribed the medications she needed, and we returned to the Farmacia where the pharmacist filled the RX and then wrote out in English the directions).

The home was well supplied with bath towels and beach towels. The kitchen was well supplied for a large group and a gas grill on the patio. There is a crib, pack & play and a seat that serves as a high chair if needed for an infant.

The golf cart is available for rent and came in handy going back and forth to the beach and the beach club. The beach club is nice and has both sand and surf, the ability to shower off and use the large pool. Although they charge $10 per person, that amount can go toward food or drinks at the bar. Children under 12 are free. We really enjoyed the time we spent there.

The AutoMercado grocery in Tamarindo had lots of options for food, especially if you have children who might be picky about eating certain things. It has many American brands.

If you go 2 things I would definitely recommend taking:

1) BUG SPRAY for your body and USE IT EVERY time you go to the beach. WE all got many bug bites and they itch like crazy. (take the afterbite stuff too)

2) lightweight clothesline and clothespins for swim suits and towels (especially when coming back from the beach)

FYI the neighborhood is expanding, but the sounds of construction were not too annoying, and they have a fence so you still have some privacy. Thanks for helping us make memories to last our lifetime!

Beautiful property, perfect for large groups

  • 5 of 5

Casa Marabella is a wonderful property and a great setting for a large group seeking a well equipped and spacious vacation rental. Owner Diana and property manager Cynthia both did everything possible to make our family vacation (8 adults, 1 child) in Hacienda Pinilla an outstanding experience. The house is as advertised: two enormous master bedrooms with king beds on the second level plus a small double bedroom; two king/queen bedrooms on the main floor and a very small single bedroom off the kitchen. The two master bedrooms have "ensuite" bathrooms, while the two larger bedrooms on the main level have a "Jack and Jill" bathroom that those bedrooms share. There is a full bath across the hall from those bedrooms so as many as four bedrooms can have their own private bathroom facilities. The dining adjacent to the kitchen easily seats 10 people, and although we did not use it, there is a formal dining room that seats 6-8. The kitchen is spacious with tons of counter space and cabinets with just about everything you need in the way of dishes, glasses, plates, utensils, cookware, etc. There were a variety of spices that have been accumulated from prior renters, and while it won't include everything you might need, you have most of the basics at your disposal. The pool area is nice, although we didn't use it very much as our group preferred the Beach Club location. Additionally, there is an enormous home being built on the lot behind Casa Marabella and construction workers are present six days a week - as a result, privacy in the pool area was not as great as we would have liked. The property is a short walk away from a nice (smaller) beach that is great for exploring in the morning as the tide pools form when the tide recedes. This is not, however, a swimming beach. The beach located adjacent to the Beach Club is fabulous - wide sandy stretches of beach, warm and clear water, great waves for surfing and for body surfing. The Beach Club itself is quite nice, with a large pool, beach bar and restaurant. Although there is a $10 per person charge to use the Beach Club facilities, you are able to apply that fee to offset the cost of drinks and food you buy at the Beach Club. We found the food to be quite good, and the cost of food and drinks not excessive - we were easily able to offset our entry fees on the days we used the Club. Lastly, we hired the cooks to make dinner 5 of our 7 nights - they were great to work with and we loved the food! Pura Vida!

Amazing house and super helpful manager on site!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect home in a wonderful gated area. Close to beautiful beaches and many activities. Cynthia, the house manager, was so helpful in setting up tours and catered dinners at the home for our entire stay. I would recommend this Home to all families.

Our stay here was nice!

  • 4 of 5

I brought my husband here to stay in this great house for his birthday. The chef was awesome and our driver Ivan I couldn't say in words how wonderful he was in taking us to all the places we needed to go. The house is gorgeous however we didn't have the pleasure in having Cynthia due to she was out of town and did her best in assisting us from a far. We had a couple of issues though Cynthia handled them very well and we appreciate it so much.

Awesome stay

  • 5 of 5

House was spacious and with very nice amenities. Manager Cynthia made the difference for our three families. She was very receptive to our needs and coordinated everything for us, including transportation to and from our excursions. Our trip to Costa Rica was definitely good and memorable because we chose Casa Marbella. Thanks, Diana.
