vacation rental description

Casa Santa Luz del Mar is a 5,000 SF Spanish colonial inspired residence located in a wonderful and quiet residential beach front community a short 10 minute drive to Tamarindo. Or as we like to say, close enough to enjoy the spectacular nightlife, international cuisine and great shopping, but far enough away to enjoy the tranquility and privacy of some of Costa Rica's most beautiful beaches without the crowd of a popular tourist destination.

Those who stay at Casa Santa Luz del Mar enjoy complete privacy and luxury, in an authentic Costa Rican hacienda surrounding. Lush tropical grounds with a large infinity pool and spacious outdoor living with all the comforts of home make this recently built estate home one of Hacienda Pinilla's most desired properties. Enjoy the proximity to the beach, golf course, beach club and all that Hacienda Pinilla has to offer.

Our staff is available to cater to your every need, with concierge and tour planning, to housekeeping and everything else you need to ensure your vacation is indeed a vacation to remember, we are here to serve.

Casa Santa Luz del Mar embodies the tropical indoor/outdoor lifestyle. The main living areas and master bedrooms open up to the spacious outdoor living area and saltwater pool. Relax pool side enjoying an occasional encounter with your only neighbors, the resident howler monkey troop and yellow head parrots that pay an occasional visit to say hello and remind you you are in the tropical paradise of Costa Rica. Venture outside Casa Santa Luz and find everything you need for the perfect vacation right at your back door, Hacienda Pinilla is a private Costa Rican oasis!

This home has three bedroom suites with private bathroom and two additional bedrooms that share a spacious bathroom. Two master bedroom suites open to the rear pool area and include king size beds. The remaining three bedrooms offer 3 queen size beds. There is a very spacious living area that includes and oversized kitchen with everything you would expect in a luxury kitchen and two large dining areas. An oversize family room with 60' plasma with DVD and large dining room and a small den with 36' plasma and dvd player for the kids.

SURFING, Guanacaste is the destination of choice for surf travelers. Hacienda Pinilla, where this house is located, is ground zero for surf spots. This is a 4500 acre community with several miles of coastline and it occupies all the land between Tamarindo and Avellanas. Little Hawaii, a big playful right hander is the closest. the famous Lolas is just 4-5 minutes to the south, Play Negra is just 10 minutes away, and Langosta is 5 minutes to the north to just name a few of our waves. Depending on tide, wind and swell direction one of the many breaks in this community is going off at most times. Contact the owner prior to your visit for a detailed guide on where and when to surf. Also if you need boards or lessons for surf while you are here these can be coordinated and provided easily.

traveler reviews for this playa avellana house rental

Everything we wanted

Review submitted: August 27, 2014   Date of arrival: August 22, 2014

In summary, this place was great and HIGHLY recommended! The purpose of our trip was to see what 'living in Hacienda Pinilla would be like as we just purchased property in an adjacent community. From beginning to end, we had everything we needed - space, food, towels, security.

Upon our arrival we were greeted at the main gate by the property owner and escorted to the property. The community is gated with an access code and well paved. The pictures are great, but the house was even better. Prior to our arrival we arranged to have fresh fruit and beverages stocked in the kitchen - so glad we did. The mangoes and papaya were HUGE and the beer was cold.

The ceilings are huge and create such a feeling of openness; there was plenty of room for us - 7 Adults, 3 Children - across the 5 bedrooms and pull out bed. Each room was very big and the beds are extremely comfortable. Linens clean and soft - much like staying at an expensive hotel or what you would want on your own bed. Each room has its own AC control so everyone can be happy and comfortable at night. In addition, the two living areas allowed for kids to watch movies and adults to also have their own space. Not really possible in a hotel.

The garage was stocked with a bunch of goodies - bikes, noodles for the pool, boogie boards, even a basketball hoop. The house had great beach towels and the washer and drier was so helpful after a few days of early morning runs in the community. Again, so helpful.

The pool in the house was VERY clean and nice. It was so nice to have a place to cool down or hang out if you didn't want to leave the house. Such a big plus with active kids that needed lots of activities to burn off the energy.

The amenities of Pinilla are also great. We took a few trips to the Beach club, went to Playa Langosta, and the JW and La Posada for dinner. Each was about 5 mins away by car and perfect. Everything was very accessible for everyone on our trip - from 83 to 4 yrs old. We already have our list of things to do for the next visit and will likely be renting this house again.

Recommended for: adventure seekers, age 55+, families with young children, families with teenagers, romantic getaway

Slice of paradise

Review submitted: August 23, 2014   Date of arrival: August 9, 2014

Spent a very relaxing week here August 2014. The house is situated in a quiet, guarded, gated community. We felt quite safe while visiting. There were resident howler monkeys in the trees and iguanas visiting the backyard. The house is quite large with a gourmet kitchen which we used for large dinners. The master bedroom and bath were very large and the other 4 bedrooms good sized. Soap s provided in the bathrooms, but you have to bring your own shampoo and conditioner. There are beach towels provided. The living room and dining areas were open and had sliding door access to the patio, pool and backyard. The pool was clean and the water temp was 86F. There was a gas grill which we used one night for steaks. There was a short 5 minute drive to the golf course, stables and beach club. The private surfbreak was awesome and uncrowded. We plan on reserving the same week next year. We have no problem recommending this property to friends or family.
