3 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom Ocean Front Villa In Eco-friendly Costa Rica

Villa sits oceanfront in Hacienda Panilla, a 4500 acre beach resort and residential community in Costa Rica. The villa enjoys access to three separate and beautiful Guanacaste beaches to relish and explore. Visitors can enjoy a world-class golf course, tennis courts, surf sports, scuba diving, stables and restaurants.

The Villa has 3 separate bedrooms each with a full bathroom. The master bedroom includes a king size bed, flat screen TV and jacuzzi. The other 2nd floor bedroom has a full bathroom and 2 single beds making it ideal for small children. The ground floor guest bedroom has a queen size bed, full bathroom and flat screen TV.

The villa has wifi internet and cable access making it ideal for the guest who still needs to stay in contact with the world while on vacation.

Plenty of parking exists outside the front entrance with 24 hour guards to ensure your vacation is not only enjoyable but 100% safe.

The beach club at Hacienda Panilla is available every day for all visitors to enjoy. You can spend the day hopping between the pool and the beach, enjoying tasty snacks like hamburgers, fish sticks, salads, fresh fruit drinks and delicious cocktails. Or you could play volleyball, walk the coastline, go surfing, and try a variety of aquatic sports. If you're in search of pampering, call ahead to reserve a visit to our Spa, where you can indulge in a facial or a relaxing massage – or both! Best of all, you'll enjoy all of these amenities in a picture-perfect location: a beach known as Avellanas, although surfers like to call it Little Hawaii.

The visitors to Hacienda Panilla who love to GOLF leave with memories that last a lifetime. The 7,300-yard, par 72 masterpiece golf course is the creation of Mike Young, who is responsible for some of the finest courses in the United States, South America, Israel and India.

On the course you'll witness Young's passion for the game, respect for local traditions, concern for the environment and sharp eye for detail. Each hole was designed to conform to the slopes and contours of the course's natural landscape.

Not only does Hacienda Pinilla's golf course meet the highest standards of international design and construction, but it also bears the prestigious distinction of an Audubon Cooperative Ecological Sanctuary, a certification given in recognition of Hacienda Pinilla's actions to preserve the area's ecological balance and to protect the environment.

Here, golfers enjoy a course that offers picturesque scenery, immaculate conditions, excellent greens, and frequent glimpses of exotic wildlife and the inviting El Corral Club House. In short, it's a challenging course for golfers who love to play again and again, and who are proud and honored to experience the traditions of our Golf Course over the years.

In addition to the restaurants on the golf course and at the Beach Club visitors can also enjoy a local dinner experience in nearby Tamarindo. Just a short 10 minute drive from the gates of the community is Tamarindo Beach surf town. Local dishes can be enjoyed at the many restaurants located in this small but scenic surf town.

About the Owner

We purchased this property a few years back after visiting Hacienda Panilla for the first time. We wanted to find a place that our kids could enjoy the natural beauty of Costa Rica. We spend as much time as possible at the house and always enjoy the beautiful beaches, great restaurants and amazing golf. As our kids have grown the memories have grown bigger and we will hold them close to our hearts forever.

We enjoyed 7 fantastic nights at Hacienda Pinilla. The condo was just as the pictures showed - clean, spacious and in a great location. This is a great place for adults and kids. We loved the flexibility of spending the day at the Beach Club, in Tamarindo or at Lola's, all just a few minutes away. Eat out or eat in - the kitchen was great. Stop by the Auto Mercado or Super Compro to stock up on groceries, both are easily accessible from Hacienda Pinilla. Surf at Avellanas (Little Hawaii) or zip line at Black Stallion. Plenty to do when you stay at Palma Real.

Thanks so much to Vanessa and Michael for all the assistance during our stay. We enjoyed the first time vacation in Cost Rica and needed some additional assistance to get around. Vanessa and Michael were great to assist us direction. The house was immaculate as we arrived. The surrounding beaches are great. The Beach Club was our kids favorite spot to go. The security gate folks where great..never big delay but we always where checked to make sure we belong to the gated community. I am planning with my family to return next year for more fun. We all recommend this property.

Thanks so much to Michael and Vanessa. We truly enjoyed our 5 nights at Hacienda Pinilla. The house was immaculate when we arrived, beds were comfortable, space was great. The Beach Club gets 5 stars as well. We loved all of the people working at Hacienda Pinilla. The people that worked the gate security were awesome!

I completely recommend this property and this was a great experience for our family.

Awesome stay at Hacienda Pinilla!

We just got back from a fabulous nearly 2 weeks at this beautiful villa (huge snow storm to welcome us home, not so good!) The house is spacious, beautifully decorated, bright with windows all around on both floors, beds were very comfortable and it was easy to call it home for our stay in Costa Rica. The pool on the premises was lovely and good to sit around and relax when we got back from a day at the Beach Club where we spent most of our days and enjoyed great food too. We hesitated at renting a car but were happy we hadn't since the free shuttle took us to the beach club, tennis and restaurants whenever we needed it. The Avellanas beach was great with good waves to learn how to surf. All in all a memorable vacation for our first visit to Costa Rica, certainly not our last! Thank you Michael!

Lugar mágico

  • 5 of 5
Mi familia y amigos pasamos unos días increíbles en esta villa. El confort, el buen gusto de su diseño, la comodidad y detalles hacen que no necesites nada más... PInilla es un lugar mágico.. Sus playas de arena blanca, sus aguas cristalinas hicieron de mis mañanas una experiencia sin igual. Andar en bicicleta por esta hacienda es lo más relajante que experimenté. Caminar por horas a la orilla de la playa sin nadie alrededor hace que no quisiera venirme ... estoy ansiosa por volver. Tranquilidad, seguridad,privacidad.. Amabilidad y calidez de los empleados hacen de tus vacaciones algo especial. Mil gracias a Michael por la confianza, trato gentil y agradable.... Amo PINILLA

From the Owner

Hacienda Panilla is the most beautiful place in Costa Rica. We live here year-round in San Jose and have never found a single place that incorporates so much of the natural beauty and wonder of Costa Rica as this reserve. It would be impossible for you to visit this unique place in the world and not want to come back each and every year.
