About the property

Hacienda Pinilla Poolside Villa

Unwind, relax and explore at Hacienda Pinilla. Our 3 bedroom, 3.5 bath home in the heart of Hacienda Pinilla lets you do just that. Just out the back door is the beautifully landscaped pool with the fitness center beside it. There are only two condos which have a pool view in Jardenes and we are one of them! Makes it convenient to go for a dip without having to lock up your place! Just a short 3 to 4 minute walk and you have access to over 3 miles of incredible beaches as well as the 5 star JW Marriot with several restaurants and a world class spa.

The grounds of this gated resort, Hacienda Pinilla, offer some incredible animal watching: turtles, howler monkeys,deer,anteaters and iguanas just to name a few. There are over 4500 acres to ride horses or mountain bike and look and listen to nature in this natural environment. The resort is very proud of the fact that it is an Audubon Society Reserve.

Inside the gated resort is also tennis, pickle ball, horse stables and a world renowned golf course, all within a few minutes drive or walk. The grounds throughout Hacienda Pinilla are meticulously maintained tropical gardens. Sit by the ocean, watch the waves, or jump right in and surf on one of Central America’s top surfing beaches, Playa Avellana, at the south end of the resort and the more advanced break Little Hawaii right outside the Beach Club which you will have access to staying in our Villa!. You can also drive your car inside the property to Playa Langosta's south end and surf a great beach break there.

Our two story townhome has ten foot vaulted and beamed ceilings and eight foot wonderful wooden french doors that lead to the covered patio on the first floor and also to the second floor covered spacious wrap around balcony. The large picturesque windows overlook the incredible grounds and pool area. On the patio outside the kitchen and living area you can eat your breakfast or dinner al fresco or OR take a siesta in the hammock.

The kitchen has beautiful granite counters , stainless steel dishwasher and refrigerator. A four burner cooktop is on the island facing the dining and living room.

After heading outside the gates of Hacienda Pinilla you can find lovely fruit stands along the road in the little town of Villa Real on your way to Tamarindo where you can shop at the high end grocery store Auto Marcado.

Beside the kitchen we have a laundry room with a washer and dryer so you can pack light for your casual and relaxing trip to Costa Rica.

The Spanish colonial architecture and circular stairs invites you in to a relaxing home that will help you unwind or get ready for the next day’s adventures. The master bedroom has a King bed and with it's walk in closet on the second floor has a vaulted ceiling and its french doors open upon the inviting balcony furnished with lounge chairs and a hammock for an afternoon siesta. The master bath has twin sinks, walk in shower and a tub.

Each of the other two bedrooms, one with another King size bed (on the fist floor) and one with 2 twin beds (on the second floor) have their own private closets and baths as well. Our home can sleep 6 adults in beds and 2 smaller children on the couches in the family room on the second floor.

As advertised

  • 4 of 5

The house was great. Spacious and comfortable. Loved the hammocks! The only downside was that the internet didn't work. It was great to get away from technology but there was a few times we would have liked to use it. Other than that, we loved it and would recommend it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking such good care of my home. I am sorry to hear about the internet. It should for sure be working. I wish you had told me so I could have sent a repair man out. The guests after you told me right away and we fixed it that day. Someone had pushed an off button on the modem. Again, if a next time, please let me know if something is not working and we will fix it for you! Pura Vida, Elisabet

An Unforgettable Trip in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We have lived in Costa Rica before, so we knew exactly where we wanted to stay. We were so happy to find this beautiful condo for our trip. The layout was amazing and worked well for three couples and two kids! The unit is beautiful with new furnishings! Everything was super clean and the unit had everything we could possibly need for preparing meals. The pool and gym were great amenities during the week! Although it was high season, it was quiet where we were at - truly relaxing!

The location simply cannot be beat! We were close to Tamarindo for tours and shopping and we did a lot of dining out in Avellanas! We took advantage of the Beach Club a few days as well! Everything was amazing! We would love to come back and stay in this spot for our next trip!

Thank you for everything!

Beautiful Villa + Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in this striking, well-appointed townhome was wonderful. There is plenty of room, both inside and out, to find a place to read on your own or to gather the entire crew. We cooked most meals and the kitchen had everything we needed. I really appreciated having reverse osmosis water in the kitchen. The home is fitted with nice sheets and towels (including beach towels). It was great to have a washer and dryer available (particularly after long hikes or going for a horseback ride). The proximity to the Palma Real pool was nice, as was the short walk to the Marriott. Hiking to Lola’s was a highlight (watch the tide!). There are countless beaches to explore, lots of wildlife to enjoy viewing, and a multitude of beautiful hikes in this general area.

Our trip to Costa Rica was great fun – having such a lovely place in which to reside surely added to our experience. I would be delighted to stay here again! FYI: Elisabet answered all of my questions thoroughly and with kindness. It was a pleasure to work with her.

Relax and explore at your leisure

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location and large town home to be used as a base of operations for exploring the northwest coastline of Costa Rica. Excellent amenities and present but not imposing security for transiting vehicles. Some local restaurants nearby and markets within a 20-30 minute drive. Good setup for cooking meals nightly. Close proximity to a fairly large pool with few people (at least during our visit). Great for beach goers and self explorers. Located close to good surfing beaches.

Great villa, excellent host

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, comfortable villa with all the comforts of home. Easy walk to beach and pool at the Mariott, but also a very nice pool right outside the backdoor. Host is easy to communicate with and super helpful. Inside a beautiful property with security, very safe and private. Highly recommended. Would stay again.

Relaxation at its finest!

  • 5 of 5

Our family and friends had a wonderful time in Hacienda Pinilla. Elisabet was great to work with from the start and was very responsive. Both Maria's were very helpful too as far as excursion recommendations and attentive to our needs while we were there.

The villa itself is very spacious and well appointed. We had 4 adults and 3 kids, 11,8, and 6 and they loved being able to run out to the pool in the back and even go for night swims. We horseback rode on property and did daily excursions including zip line, BBQ at Black Stallion, Surf Lessons at the beach club, and a catamaran ride as well which included snorkeling and lunch. The access to the Marriott worked well also as some nights we would just walk over there for dinner after a long day of activities. You definitely need a car here. We actually arranged a shuttle from Liberia and then picked up our car at the Marriott through Avis- that worked out well.

We will certainly be back and appreciated the time we spent at Hacienda Pinilla to truly check out! My kids rated the vacation a "10+++" which tells me this was a huge success!

Thanks again for our special memories we created! Pura Vida!
