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 a 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, 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 which also delivers.

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.

Perfect Location - Extremely Comfortable - Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a week long stay at this villa with another family. We were able to fit all 9 of us (4 adults + 5 kids) comfortably. The kids slept in the upstairs bedroom with the twin beds. We tucked the air mattress between the beds and they had a blast... every night was a sleep over with their friends. Our oldest slept on the upstairs couch. She wanted to sleep in the hammock on the upstairs porch, but we wouldn't let her... perhaps next time.

The location of the villa is perfect. We liked being close to the pool there was no need to "pack" anything. Some mornings the kids were swimming before breakfast. There's so much to do on the grounds at Pinilla that you almost feel like you don't have to leave. We enjoyed spending mornings on the back porch listening to the sounds of the birds. In the evenings, the upstairs deck was perfect for watching the thunderstorms in the distance or just listening to the rain fall on the trees - so peaceful.

Every day was an adventure here - the kids haven't stopped talking about wanting to go back. We'll definitely stay here again!

Wonderful Villa in great community with amazing wildlife

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed at an amazing villa in Hacienda Pinilla. It was located near the pool and gym and a very short walk to the Beach or to the JW Marriott. The Villa was beautifully decorated and fully furnished. We have been to CR several times and this is the way to go. We were able to shop in the local markets and cook for ourselves when we chose to do so. The community is full of wonderful wildlife as well. Our two kids were amazed by the Howler Monkeys, the Orange Tailed Squirrels, the two coyotes, and the huge iguanas. There is so much to do in this area and day trips to several National Parks are easy. Tamarindo is also full of wonderful restaurants and shops and a little further north is Las Catalinas, a beautiful beach and worth the 45 minute ride. To the south is Avellanas and Lola's Restaurant on the beach. Also worth the ride. We plan to go back again next year and hopefully stay in this wonderful villa.

Peace + Paradise

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful villa, community and 1st class getaway. This property is immaculate, serene and the perfect place to go when you want to relax, surf, walk on the beach ride bikes and enjoy those you love. We went as a couple but it so spacious to bring family, cook meals and enjoy time together.

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent only 3 nights of our 8 Days in Costa Rica at Hacienda Pinilla and we wish we would have spent more. The place is very nice and spacious and the Security is excellent. We were lucky to catch excellent surf at Little Hawaii on our first night while my wife worked out at the Beach Club while watching us surf. We also scored good waves at Playa Negro 20 Minutes away. Hope to be back soon.

Better Than Expected!

  • 5 of 5

We came to Hacienda Pinilla for spring break with several other families and their high school age children. Everything was as promised and as expected. The owner was very communicative leading up to our stay, and answered every one of my questions, as did her property manager. The house was very clean, comfortable, and well-located. I would definitely recommend this property and this house to anyone!

Be sure to visit Lola's for a wonderful day at the beach.

Thank you!

Fabulous Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from Spring Break at this beautiful villa. What a lovely place to call home for a week. The condo was beautifully decorated, clean and very big. The kids loved the hammocks and being able to walk to the pool which was right out the back door. The condo had everything that we needed to cook meals at home. We also had many great meals at the JW Marriott which was a short walk away. We had full access to the hotel and beach club. We rented bikes from the Marriott and went on their suggested zip lining excursion. Witch's Rock Surf Camp was just 20 minutes away where the whole family took a surf lesson and were able to get up on our boards. We felt very comfortable and secure with the location of the condo. The Hacienda Pinilla property is inside a 4500 acre gated ranch. Upon the owner's suggestion, we went to Lola's restaurant twice and DeVeena's. Both places had fabulous food! The owner sent us directions from the airport in Liberia which were very accurate. She also sent an information packet with everything that we needed to know for our stay. I would highly recommend this property and hope to come back for a future vacation.
