This month our featured property is also one of our favorite Hacienda Pinilla Vacation Rentals! Casa Costa Blanca, in Hacienda Pinilla just south of Tamarindo beach, is a classic beach house that has been remodeled into a five-star modern mini-resort. Walking onto this property is like walking onto a movie set–in fact, we invite you to make it the set of your own movie by reserving it for your wedding or another special event. Casa Costa Blanca is designed with events in mind!
This property is literally on the beach, with ocean views from all rooms on the ocean-facing side of the house. The main house has 6 bedrooms, and a 7th bedroom in a small independent apartment is located above the garage. Casa Costa Blanca is a tropical vacation dream house. Each of the two floors is comprised of a full kitchen and dining area, a tv lounge space and three bedrooms. Isn’t that amazing? What other house has two full kitchens? This unique benefit is excellent for event vacations like weddings, is great if someone in your group has severe food allergies, and is very handy for families traveling together.
But the over-the-top accommodations inside of Casa Costa Blanca is not even the best thing about it. The best thing about Casa Costa Blanca is everything that lays between the west wall of the home and the beach. You’re going to have to see this to believe it.
A deep shady terrace runs the length of the home on both floors, overlooking the sparkling turquoise of the pacific. Decadent loungers on the terrace or under a pool-side umbrella are a perfect place to forget the rest of the world exists and sink into complete relaxation. The oversized infinity-edge pool has a tanning ledge, a section for swimming laps, and a jacuzzi built into the beachside. If your tropical dream destination includes sipping a cool drink under the stars in a jacuzzi beside the surf and sand, Casa Costa Blanca is the only place for you. Beside the pool, a large thatched barbeque pavilion has a wet bar, a refrigerator, and seating for your whole group to enjoy meals and drinks by the ocean.
At Casa Costa Blanca a green lawn area separates the pool and barbeque pavilion from the golden sand. This grassy spot is a fun play area for children and it is also a picturesque setting for your reception, your wedding, your special birthday gala or whatever other special occasion brings you to celebrate at Casa Costa Blanca.
As we’ve said, this unforgettable estate sets directly on the beach. Lava rock outcroppings form tidepools in front of the property as the tide drops, and low tide beach walks are sure to be among your favorite vacation memories. Hacienda Pinilla is bordered by 3 miles of pristine coast, so even though Casa Costa Blanca is not in front of a surf break, there are lots of surf breaks right nearby.
This brings us to the second thing we’re featuring for you this month: the myriad of things there are for you to do inside Hacienda Pinilla when you stay in one of our amazing Hacienda Pinilla vacation rentals. Ocean sports are a favorite. Swimming and surfing are number one, but sportfishing, sailing and snorkeling are also experiences you don’t want to miss out on. Hacienda Pinilla encompasses a five-star 18-hole golf course that meanders from the hills to the sand. This is the best golf course Guanacanaste has to offer. In addition to being the most beautiful, keep an eye out for wildlife on the course, like small deer, a shy wildcat, rabbits, or a stray crocodile. We’re not making joking–these things have happened. At Hacienda Pinilla you can play tennis or take lessons, you can hike or mountain bike on the dozens of miles of well-maintained trails that coil through the nature preserve, or you can enjoy horseback riding through the equestrian center.
Another layer of Hacienda Pinilla activities is the luxury amenities you will find at the Hacienda’s Beach Club and the JW Marriott resort. You can already guess that there are irresistible dining options at both places, but did you know that the beach club is located in front of one of the area’s favorite surf breaks? The Hacienda Pinilla beach club also has a fitness center, a full spa, and a play area for children. The JW Marriot at Hacienda Pinilla has five restaurants, a luxury spa, event rooms, and the largest swimming pool in Central America. All guests in Hacienda Pinilla vacation rentals have full access to the beach club and may also access the facilities of the JW Marriott according to availability.
For sure you’re going to want to get out and explore a little. We can arrange for a rental car or cars to be dropped off at Casa Costa Blanca, or you can one of our new vans and a driver to take you out and about. Tamarindo beach is only 15 minutes north of Hacienda Pinilla, and it’s a wonderful place to spend a day, an evening, or both! There are lots of things to do in Tamarindo, and we can set you up with Tamarindo tours and local adventures to fill the day. Tamarindo is an excellent place to take surf lessons if that’s on your vacation list or to get on a catamaran for an afternoon of snorkeling.
Tamarindo has more restaurants than you’ll have time to try, and the variety includes everything from simple local fare to fine dining. You’ll love walking the streets in Tamarindo, browsing the boutiques during the day, listening to live music as the sun goes down, and deciding where to stop for dinner. You’ll love the vibrant activity of Tamarindo, it’s languages and colors and the busyness of its streets. Day and night Tamarindo is full of life and activity which you can join if you enjoy the company of people from all over the world, or you can retreat to the pristine calm of Hacienda Pinilla and Casa Costa Blanca where your luxury beach house awaits.
