Hacienda Pinilla’s green reaches to the sand

If you’ve never been to Hacienda Pinilla just outside of Tamarindo, Costa Rica, it will be hard for you to imagine just how beautifully serene your vacation rental experience can be.  Hacienda Pinilla is a 4,500 private nature preserve that encompasses, an 18 hole golf course, luxury gated communities, a functioning cattle ranch and 3 miles of stunning Pacific coastline.  Whether you’re planning a vacation to rest and recuperate or a vacation of fun and adventure, Hacienda Pinilla Vacation Rentals brings you the area’s highest-level luxury options in a setting of pristine tranquility. Our homes range in size from estates and mini-resorts to family-sized condos, and all of them offer the full menu of amenities that Hacienda Pinilla offers its guests:  tee times on the golf course, entrance to the five-star beach club, use of hiking and biking trails, access to the equestrian center and tennis courts, miles of beaches with tidepools and surf spots, and a JW Marriott Resort and Spa. 

Let’s unwrap these new luxury villas in Hacienda Pinilla and see what’s inside!

Villa Almendro 

First floor living and dining area at Villa Almendro

We’re unwrapping the smallest package first.  Villa Almendro is a beautiful luxury condo in the Los Lagos community of Hacienda Pinilla.  This villa features 3 bed/bath suites and can accommodate up to 10 guests.  It’s the perfect Hacienda Pinilla vacation rental for families.  

This lovely villa with tall windows, french doors, hardwood details and modern accents, is located right in front of the lake in Los Lagos.  Inside, you’ll enjoy air conditioning and all the comforts of home like wifi, large television screens, a fully equipped kitchen, and a laundry facility.  There is a living area on both levels–the upper one with a television, and the lower one that forms a single common space with the kitchen and dining area.

Second level terrace in the trees

Outside Villa Almendro you can relax on the deep shady verandas.  The upper veranda is furnished with cushioned loungers where you can relax and even nap while listening to the wind in the trees by the lake, and to the birds and monkeys that live in them.   The ground-floor veranda features loungers and a dining table for outdoor meals, coffee, or chilled tropical fruit drinks. If cooking isn’t your thing but you don’t want the bother of going to restaurants, let us contact our private chef to do in-home cooking for you. 

The villas in Los Lagos share a beautiful resort pool and a bridge-access pavilion in the lake.  As our guest, our Concierge services are all yours as well. Let us help you arrange for transportation, tours and activities, and your private chef or a babysitter for a night out.

Good things come in small packages, and Villa Almendro is the family vacation destination you’ve been waiting for. 

Villa Lucia

Another new addition to the Hacienda Pinilla Vacation Rentals family this year is Villa Lucia.  This 5400 square foot 4-bedroom villa takes the concept of a vacation rental condo to the next level.  Four bedrooms, each with a private bath, sleep up to 12 guests in luxury accommodations.

We love Villa Lucia because it has the conveniences of a condo while offering the spaciousness of a full-sized house.  This is a great choice for groups of friends traveling together–think surf trip!–or extended family trips when you bring your parents, your sister, and everybody’s kids.  Each of the four bedrooms has its own bath, so you won’t get in each other’s way. Both upper bedrooms open onto their own private verandas. 

There are lots of common spaces in this deluxe condo, which are what you’re looking for in a vacation rental property.  In addition to private bed/bath suites, you want lots of options for spending time together. Each of the two floors of Villa Lucia has a comfy living area with couches to sink into and a television to entertain.  Tall french doors in wood and glass open from these living rooms onto shady terraces that invite you to sit with your first cup of coffee or an afternoon cocktail and a good book.

Spacious master bedroom with private terrace

Villa Lucia is part of the Los Malinches community within Hacienda Pinilla.  The homes in this community are surrounded by indigenous dry-forest trees, many of which flower in the dry season, and an expansive green area.  The resort pool in Los Malinches is yours to use and is an excellent spot for lap swimming, sunbathing, and cooling off after your day of Costa Rica adventures.

Casa Hamacas

Now it’s finally time to pull the paper off the big one–our brand new Casa Hamacas.

Casa Hamacas is our amazing newly-remodeled 6 bedroom home for up to 17 guests.  This ultra-modern luxury vacation rental is designed to be both comfortable and chic, with natural materials and textures used to draw simple lines and create an atmosphere of relaxation. 

Casa Hamacas

Casa Hamacas: modern and traditional

As fantastic as the inside of Casa Hamacas is, with its gourmet-ready kitchen, first and second level tv lounges and bedrooms with king-sized beds, it’s the outside areas that are going to steal your heart. 

Behind the home, by the pool and the oversized rancho you won’t believe, is a dream-like hammock garden with colorful hammocks placed in the shadiest spots under trees that flower in the dry season.  You won’t find anything like this at any other vacation rental. In the pool, a tanning ledge is a perfect spot to enjoy the sun and water with a book and a cool drink beside you. The smallest members of the family will also love the tanning ledge where they can safely play while supervised.  Beautiful tropical plants surround the home and the property, making the garden feel like a hidden corner of paradise.  

Bright, spacious, new kitchen

The best part of Casa Hamacas, however, is that the open-air rancho that provides a full outdoor living area.  The Bali-style couches and swings hung from the high rafters are going to amaze you. This area is prime for lazily relaxing, long chats with family and friends, afternoon naps and evening cocktails.  A bar, new gas grill, sink, and food prep area span the entire length of this unbelievable rancho, and the single-slab natural-fall almendro wood table beside it is big enough to seat everyone in your group.  It’s going to blow your mind. And wait until night falls, the garden accent lights come on, and you light the antique bulbs in the iron chandelier that hangs in the middle of this space.

The ideal in outdoor living

Casa Hamacas is not your run-of-the-mill vacation rental home; Casa Hamacas is spectacular.

Here’s to a happy and safe holiday season for you and yours.  And here’s to your first 2020 vacation being your visit to us here at Hacienda Pinilla!  Cheers!
