Fell in love with this villa!

  • 5 of 5

The first thing I noticed when I walked in was how super clean the house was!! And there was also a welcome bouquet of flowers accompanied by waters and fresh fruit. I thought that was a nice touch.

The ocean views are spectacular. And the sunset is breathtaking. When we weren't at the beach, my kids enjoyed playing in the villa's pool which is also very clean. My husband also managed to get away and enjoy a day of golf.

We had a great time and I highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a great, clean home with amazing views.

Beautiful, spacious villa. Fantastic views, great floor plan, comfortable beds, and a laundry room!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of six loved it! Perfect for two couples and two singles, with plenty of privacy and space to congregate, or relax. The villa exceeded expectations: gorgeous, beautifully decorated and spotless, but felt like home at the same time. The downstairs living area has a well-equipped kitchen and there were even some condiments and cooking oils, etc, so we left behind what we had bought, for the next guests. We tried to grill one night but the propane tank was empty so we used the stovetop. Loved the big laundry room and storage space for our cooler! Icemaker- yes! The downstairs bedroom with private bathroom is nice and very comfortable though definitely smaller than the upstairs master; not much space for suitcases but a lovely armoire for clothing. The upstairs master suite is huge with a very comfortable king bed and walk-in closet, perfect for hiding the bags. The adjacent twin bedroom with bath was perfect for the singles. The upstairs lounge area with tv and doors to balcony was great. Both downstairs patio and upstairs balcony are spacious and have ample room to sit and take in the ocean breeze and views. We are seasoned travelers in this country and used to all types of accommodations, but this was the first trip here for our guests and they felt very secure inside the gates of Hacienda Pinilla, within the also-gated La Palma Real villas. The development is woven into a working ranch and there is a wheat field between the villas and the ocean. A short walk from the villa down a paved path toward the adjacent Marriott, takes you to Playa Mansita, from which you can walk south to sit on Playa Avellana with its big white stretch of sand and great waves, or to Lola's (a distance, but very doable), or head north for the gorgeous rocky beachline and tidepools. Something for everyone!

The La Palma pool is very nice and the Pinilla Beach Club is a short drive away with super friendly staff and infinity pool facing Playa Avellana. They credit the $10 day fee toward food and bar service, so it's a win-win.

A small issue with a shower drain was resolved very quickly due to Mark's prompt attention to our email. One wish: a safe for valuables/extra cash.

We mostly enjoyed the beach but took one excursion. Highly recommended: PaloVerde/RioTempisque: the real Jungle Cruise plus a delicious typico lunch. If you have a car and don't mind the bumps, drive to meet them in Cortez instead of being picked up. Scenic and cheaper!

Beautiful Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

Our group loved our 2-week stay. The villa is beautifully appointed and very clean. (Thank you, Vanessa!)

From beautiful sunsets every evening, walks on the beaches, relaxing at the pool, and the family of monkeys who visited us, we couldn't ask for a more relaxing and enjoyable stay.

Pura Vida!

Luxurious, spacious villa with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

This villa, one of several in the Hacienda Pinilla development, made for a wonderful "home base" while our family visited the Guanacaste region and explored both the coastal surf towns as well as the nearby national parks near rainforests and volcanoes. Mark, the owner, was responsive and helpful. We would highly recommend the property for families or groups who wish to enjoy quiet beaches and golf. Other options include horseback riding, canopy tours / ziplines, and mountain biking. There is also great surfing just a few minutes away in Playa Avellanas and lots of opportunities to see wildlife. We were fortunate to see deer, iguanas, howler monkeys, and many gorgeous birds, all from the patio of the villa. The area is very safe and secure, and for those who might prefer freshwater for swimming, there are several pools available to guests, with the closest one just about 200 meters away. This rental is probably best for guests with their own transportation, but the Marriott next door can also arrange packaged tours with transportation to nearby towns and attractions. Overall a very nice place in which to experience the "pura vida" of Costa Rica.

Great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 ( 2 adults, 2 teens) really appreciated this rental. Coming from a short stay in the Arenal region we stayed at the house only 4 days. At the arrival we had a hard time finding the house since we were told unit 206 and should have looked for unit 6. Once we found it we were happy to find that it was just as the pictures , no surprises . The entire complex/resort is huge, safe and quiet. The pool is a minute walk and is clean. We were able to rent surfs and boogie boards at the beach club, which is about a 3 minutes drive. We enjoyed the waves! My deception is that there is no beach chair on the beach. If you want a chair you have to stay at the beach club. The food at the beach club was excellent. We also went to Lola’s enjoyed the food , the surf and the beach. But what we appreciated the most was playa Langosta which is just a short 5 min drive in the same secured complex. We were almost alone on that magnificent beach. Thanks to Mark for advising us not to miss this beach. We also drove to Tamarindo and a little further up north and we were very happy that we had we reserved at Hacienda Pinilla. Tamarindo is crowded and very touristic.

The Marriott is just a short walk we enjoyed an excellent dinner at one of the restaurants. The beach of the Marriott is accessible by a short 5 min walk but it is not the nicest, there was algae and lots of rocks.

At the house, everything we needed was available. The thing I was missing is my espresso machine! However, there was a percolator and Costa Rican coffee is good! The BBQ grill needs to be changed but it wasn’t a problem since we only had to use it once. The phone and sound system weren’t working. I wrote an email to the owner and next morning Mr Percy was knocking at the door explaining that it wasn’t working but they were trying to fix it. A good thing my daughter had brought her Bluetooth speaker. To communicate with Mr Percy we were encouraged to use What’sApp. The beds were confortable and the view from the balcony was very nice. My sun really enjoyed the hammock.

Thanks to Mark he always answered my questions rapidly. Would we return? Absolutely, for a longer stay!
