About The Owner

My wife and I live in Minneapolis and after having lived in a number of different areas we have settled back where we call home. After visiting several times and falling in love with Costa Rica we decided to invest in our retirement which seemed at the time to be just a few years away. Like so many other places we all experienced real estate was a hot commodity back then so we made the plunge. We're still waiting for a full recovery in market values but in the meanwhile we have another place we call home. We wish that we could get away more but it seems that retirement led to more work and children led to grandchildren. While we wait our turn we would love to share our home and vision with you!

The Owner purchased this villa in 2007

Why The Owner chose Guanacaste

We visited Costa Rica on four different occasions and each time tried to convince ourselves to invest. On the fourth visit it was make or break for us. We would either make a purchase or never again broach the subject.

After scouring the area all around Tamarindo we settled on life at Hacienda Pinilla. We searched for a place that was safe, had great beaches, plenty to enjoy in our neighborhood and was a bit away from the bustle of town.

Hacienda Pinilla was just such a place. We knew we found a special place and was one that had all of the amenities that we enjoy at our fingertips. We like the fact that it is still close enough to enjoy the restaurants, shopping or just walking the town. Yet we could leave and get away from all of it when we wanted! One good dose of the dusty roads, crowds of 'surfer dudes' and crowded beaches and we knew that we wanted to be close but not in it every day.

Having owned several other vacation rental properties throughout the years we knew from experience what amenities others appreciate and look for when planning for their vacation. At Hacienda Pinilla you'll find beautiful uncrowded beaches, great surfing, excellent restaurants, golf, tennis, spa, gorgeous sunsets and so much more!

Within our villa you will find exquisite furnishings, quality linens, fully stocked kitchen supplies and all the comforts of home. To us, this is not your typical 'rental' home - it is our home and furnished so that we, and our guests, can enjoy the time we spend here.

Nice house and beautiful place

  • 4 of 5

It's a nice house with a lake in front of it and very close to the beach and beach club. It's has all amenities required to have a nice stay.

Only area of improvement is housekeeping, since even when it was very good, finished around 7 pm when our check in was at 3, so we had to wait there until it was done.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice, spacious, and clean condo/villa. It's well appointed and comfortable. Two bedrooms are upstairs and one is downstairs. All bedrooms have nice closets and bathrooms. This villa is located 5 min walking distance to beautiful beach full of shells. It is close to Hacienda Pinilla Beach Club as well, which has amazing swimming/surfing/beach combing/ name it, beach. The whole area is secluded and safe.

Beautiful villa

  • 4 of 5

Me and my son stayed in this villa for one week. The villa was large and absolutely beautiful. I viewed some vacancies in this same development and none showed as well as this one. Lots of nature noises (birds, ducks, monkeys) if you like that. You MUST have a rental/car. Although the Marriott is in proximity, it was nearly impossible to walk to in the sweltering heat...and the beach club is simply out of reach by foot, especially in the heat. And you'll definitely want a car to get in and out of town...or prepare to be gouged by Marriott transfers/taxis. Going in and out of the security gates was a bit of a hassle (I thought), but if you're concerned about your safety, then put this one on the list. No shady characters are getting in there! :-)

Great condo on a beautifully secure & private ranch.

Walking distance to playa Bonita, great beach to watch sunsets & look for shells. Can even walk to JW Marriott for pool use, although we preferred the beach club- slightly farther. Condo had much needed A/C & everything else needed for cooking etc. Jeff, property owner, was very pleasant & responsive to questions. Would definitely stay there again & recommend to others.
