Casa Shambala is the kind of place where you have to blink. A few times. Maybe, pinch yourself?
Nope, you’re definitely not dreaming.
This is real life at Casa Shambala: 180-degree ocean views, custom furnishings, polished concrete and soaring glass, an infinity pool, intricately carved wooden doors, howler monkeys in the trees – the kind of place you read about and figure it has to be a fantasy. A hyperbole of vacation imagination.
Only here, it’s real.
Welcome to Casa Shambala
Secluded. A work of art. Unlike anything you’ve ever experienced.
There are a lot of ways we could describe Casa Shambala. They’re all pretty superlative. This is just that kind of home.
Casa Shambala – located in Playa Avellanas, just 30 minutes to downtown Tamarindo and 15 minutes to warm sand – is set on a hilltop within a 21-hectare horse ranch. Hence, secluded. Hence, stunning views. Hence, everything. Because, this vacation home is everything.
Home to four air-conditioned bedrooms, four bathrooms, and ample privacy – each of the second-level bedrooms is accessed via private staircase, has an ensuite bathroom, and overlooks ocean views – Casa Shambala is almost as spectacular within as without.
Almost. Because, outside? Well, the ocean side of the home is ringed by a crystalline ocean-view infinity pool, where hilltop breezes whisper and butterflies dance. In the trees: tropical birds and, as promised, inquisitive howler monkeys.
A Special Kind of Place
Delightfully secluded and owning a breathtaking (not hyperbole) 180-degree ocean view, Casa Shambala is so unique, so unlike any other home you have ever been in, that it feels almost imaginary.
Here, nothing is ordinary. Here, everything is extraordinary. From the floor mosaics to the carved wooden doors, from the handcrafted and polished concrete surfaces to the custom wood furniture and sculpted ceilings, every detail matters.
And, blended throughout – simplicity and the unexpected, woven through all of Casa Shambala’s interior and exterior living spaces. Every sink, tub and wash basin is made by hand. The kitchen’s ceiling fans resemble the wings of birds. This is just a taste, but we’ll stop there. You deserve the experience of surprise and delight, as you round each bend and hug each curve of Casa Shambala.
And when you’re finished, step out onto the footpath that leads to a shady lookout point. Take a seat on the rustic wooden bench. Enjoy the ocean breeze and the green-and-blue panoramas of Guanacaste’s tropical dry forests – rising toward the sun, sweeping down to the ocean. Welcome to the best private sunset spot in Guanacaste, if not all of Costa Rica.

Cristina (aka Cris) is our wonderful, knowledgeable, and friendly in-house concierge. She not only knows greater Tamarindo and Hacienda Pinilla (= the Avellanas area) like the back of her hand, but her job is to get to know you that well, too.
Here’s how it works: When you book Casa Shambala, Cristina will soon get in touch. She’ll send you our welcome packet, which includes an intro to many of the most popular Tamarindo activities, tours, and attractions. Have a look. Get a taste of what our region has to offer.
