Casa Orchidea, named after Costa Rica’s national flower, is a beautiful Spanish-style mansion that accommodates up to 13 guests. This exquisite vacation rental home is located inside of Hacienda Pinilla, Costa Rica’s premier gated community, fifteen minutes from the famous resort town of Tamarindo. You won’t find a better place to spend your tropical vacation than in the beauty and the serenity of Casa Orchidea. Two floors, 6 bedrooms, 4 baths and 2 half-baths, a full kitchen on the ground floor and a wet bar on the second, a balcony, a terrace, an infinity pool and pergola are all pieces of the puzzle that come together at Casa Orchidea to make it your dream destination.
One of the best things about Casa Orchidea, and a reason it is always a favorite, is that the natural hegde of palm and hibiscus that surrounds the property makes the garden areas completely private. Enjoy the terraces and the pool as if all of Hacienda Pinilla were your own. Early mornings and late afternoons are excellent times to spot colorful birds and butterflies at Casa Orchidea, and you never know when a Howler Monkey troupe may decide to come pay a visit. A new gas grill and an outdoor dining table in the pergola by the pool provide a place where you can prepare and enjoy outdoor meals, or let us bring in a private chef to do the work for you. The first and second level terraces are the perfect place to start the day with a cup of locally-grown coffee while our staff prepares your breakfast.
Each floor at Casa Orchidea is comprised of a great room and three private bedrooms. On the ground level, the spacious common area is where you will find the fully-equipped kitchen that is at the heart of every truly wonderful home. The dining area and a comfortable TV corner are all part of this open space that flows, through multiple sets of glass doors, onto the patio, the sun terrace by the pool, and the lawn. Upstairs on the second level of this luxury villa, meticulously-maintained hardwood floors span the home end-to-end. Two sitting areas--one with a large flat-screen TV--and a professionally-arranged wet bar are yours to enjoy. On breezy evenings, open the glass doors to the generous balcony and enjoy the fresh air as you lay back in the hammock or on the cushioned loungers.
Five of Casa Orchidea’s spacious bedrooms are furnished with king sized beds, and one of the rooms contains two twin beds and a daybed that comfortably accommodates a child or small adult. The master bedroom on each floor contains an en-suite bath, and the other two bedrooms on each floor share a full bath. Each room has its own air conditioner.
A full list of amenities comes with your vacation at Casa Orchidea. First of all, in-home amenities include air conditioning, wi-fi, housekeeping service during your stay of 4 nights or more, daily breakfast-preparation, and all the tips and insights we provide to you through our 5-star Concierge service. Vehicle rentals, tours, private transfers in our new vans, and additional treats like in-home massages or chef services are just the beginning of what our Concierge can arrange for you. And then there are the Hacienda Pinilla amenities. Hacienda Pinilla is a 4,500 acre nature preserve that lies along 3 miles of pristine Pacific coast line. Stroll, swim, you prefer. The Las Golondrinas community where Casa Orchidea is located borders the ocean, so a quick drive through the community or a walk of about 10 minutes will put your toes in the sand.
