We really enjoyed our stay at Casa Bonita! It is a beautiful house that is great for a large group as everyone has their own room and bathroom with plenty of space. Mariam was very helpful and attentive to our needs/questions! Added bonus of having Alejandra there during the week from 8-5pm to cook us breakfast and keep everything clean for us! The community is great, very quiet and peaceful. The beach is close by for a morning walk. Would definitely recommend Casa Bonita!

Our family of 9 had an amazing time at Casa Bonita Beach. Perfect home for our extend family ages 75 to 8 yrs old. Home is wonderful with all the right amenities. The only real issue was washer not working during our stay but clothes were laundered offsite one. The trip was made amazing by the Concierge Mariam. In all our worldwide travels we have never experienced such a responsive, professional and going out of the way concierge service. Issues were resolved promptly & we followed all her activities recommendations which were superb. Thank you Mariam!

My extended family and I (Total 17) had an awesome time at Casa Bonita Beach. Mariam was and excellent support on anything we needed. Ale helped us out a lot with the housekeeping and delicious costarrican breakfast preparation. Hacienda Pinilla resort has everything you need: Beach Club, access to 4 beaches, tennis court, horse riding, etc. Thanks Staytamarindo for creating wonderful experiences

I couldn't give this place a better review. Whether its the pool, house layout, golf course or location this place has it all. The bedrooms where all very spacious. The pool and waterslide was enjoyed throughout the day by the kids and adults alike and the outdoor spaces were perfect for a large group. The community was safe, clean, and had everything you need whether it be a beach club, golf, tennis, restaurants, etc. Above all our concierge Mariam was out of this world. She was able to organize anything and everything we needed from adventures to transportation and even Covid Pre-Departure testing at the house. She was simply amazing and took this trip to the next level. Overall, if I would rate the house higher than 5stars I would.

Our family stayed in the home for 5 weeks. It was important to us that the house we rented be well kept, had professional management and high speed internet to work remotely. This house had it all. During our stay there were a few issues that came up as expected but they were all dealt with quickly and professionally. Mariam was a HUGE asset as she helped us navigate the area and help us with any possible request we had! She was always a pleasure to chat with and was available night and day. We can not say enough good things about her and the management company. The house was 10/10. Incredible outdoor space, properly furnished and well designed inside. Hacienda Pinilla is the perfect community for a young family. Lots to do and see by bike, walk or golf cart.

Three weeks before our son's wedding we discovered that the wedding planner forgot to book our house. I reached out to Stay In Tamarindo and they were able to find us one very close to the wedding house. The check in, the grocery delivery, the condition of the house were all excellent. Mariam, the concierge was so responsive. Casa Bonita Beach is a beautiful home. Everything was clean and comfortable. A fabulous home for a big family. Would love to return someday!

We're repetitive clients and we just love the peace and freedom we have inside the community Las Golondrinas (inside Hacienda Pinilla) every morning a 3 minute walk to the beach to check out the tide and get the oxygen flowing can't be beat. At mid tide there are water pools where you can relax for hours. All year around surf is great, low or high tide. The house is just perfect... clean, open, and very light. The large outdoor area has plenty of space for everyone to have their own privacy. Rooms are super spacious and all with their own bathroom. The new addition is a small suite/studio with a king size bed, kitchenette, large bathroom for handicap, and an additional room with a bunkbed. Perfect for a family of 4 even. We can't wait to get back, we're already planning our next vacation.

Disfrutamos muchisimo nuestra estadia de 5 noches en Casa Bonita, con nuestros hijos y nietos, que les encanto particularmente la piscina con su cascada, los monos y las playas tan cercanas. La casa es muy linda y moderna, como un Hotel 5 estrellas con total privacidad y un mantenimiento impecable.

You will definitely not be disappointed if you rent this home! We are a family of 14, 8 adults and 6 children. This home was plenty space for all of us. We opened the door and was just amazed at how large this house was from looking at the pictures online. You walk into One really large great room, with the beautiful kitchen to the left and a large dinning table. On the right a big living area with TV and large couch with recliners. Then a long beautiful hallway with pictures on the walls from surrounding beaches so beautiful. Down the hallway you will find massive bedrooms, with a large closet, separate sink, and toilet area with a beautiful glass shower. Each room came with a desk area and a large bay window with a space below the size of a standard bed, 2 children can sleep there. The master room is much larger with a walk-in closet, separate toilet area, has 2 sink vanity, a large walk-in shower and a beautiful large claw footed soaker tub. Also has a sliding glass door with access to the pool area. The pool was perfect for all of us, we all had fun going down the slide. The house comes with a washer n dryer for laundry. The kitchen has a dish washer for easy cleanup with all all the necessities you need to cook n serve your meals. They also provided the soaped needed for these appliances. We had an amazing time staying at the Casa Bonita Beach House and can not wait to return!!! Thank you Mariam for all of your help and support we need to make our vacation amazing! ?

This is the ultimate finest location and family home for any family. The house has private rooms and the kitchen is amazing. The yard has a pool perfect for kids and the monkeys come and watch. We got golf carts a rented car and toys for the family. The best part is concierge service from Mariam . She knows everything about the town the adventures and hacienda pinillas. We surfed everyday. She set us up with ATV ziplining golf horseback riding and restaurants. And a babysitter !The fire show was awesome. We will return hopefully one day and do it all again.

Casa Bonita Beach was a fabulous place for our group of eight. The house and outdoor living areas made it seem as though we had ample room all the time. We utilized the outdoor bbq and covered areas for most meals. The pool was ready for swimming first thing every morning and we enjoyed the slide for those quick dips. The privacy of the home made it seem like we were in a jungle with monkeys, birds and lizards in abundance. As mentioned there is construction going on next door but it didn’t bother us at all. They start early but so did we. Hacienda Pinilla was very private and secure. The drive was beautiful other then the first couple miles which is a little rough but not abnormal for Costa Rica. We had access to wonderful beaches, walking/biking trails, golf, the beach club and even a small market. I recommend definitely driving the short way to Playa Longosta. Excellent boogie boarding there! The best part of our stay here was the people that worked with Stay in Tamarindo and the various people they recommended for services. If there was any issue we could get hold of them whether it was a weekend or evening. They excelled at making it easy for us from shuttle service to and from the airport to Amigo’s rental cars delivering our SUV’s to the Casa and even the amazing chef Juan that did an in home meal for us. The biggest win at the end was the in home Covid testing that we were able to have done per Miram’s suggestion. So much better then at the airport! If you are new to Costa Rica make sure and go into Tamarindo for happy hour and a sunset. It is so worth it.

The house was absolutely beautiful! It was very clean always, the air conditioner worked really well & the house is really close to the main strip in Tamarindo where you can find amazing food & bars. Our guest hosts Mariam & Elsa were AMAZING & assisted us will all our requests. I highly recommend this home!

Muchas gracias Casa Bonita por el maravilloso tiempo de vacaciones que disfrutamos!
El diseño tan contemporaneo y la decoracion de lujo de la propiedad nos brindaron
las comodidades de un mini resort totalmente privado y confortable.
La zona de la piscina con el tobogan fue la diversion de niños y adultos! rodeados de
la naturaleza y el fascinante sonido de los monos.
Queremos agradecer y felicitar a Jon, Mariam y a todo el personal de Stayin Tamarindo por su eficiente y esmerada atencion. Facilitando en todo momento el tiempo de disfutar nuestras vacaciones 5 estrellas en Casa Bonita! Muchas gracias!

What a beautiful house. We had 4 children with us and we could not get them away from the outside - pool, slide, beach - everything kids (and adults) would want in a vacation. The house is a wonderful, new construction with huge ceilings and plenty of room for everyone. We have been traveling the world and this was our favorite house we rented. The management company (Stay in Tamarindo) was excellent - very responsive, helpful and accommodating. 5 stars for them too. How many times can you say that about a management company! Great memories, we'll be back for sure.

We had so much fun at this house! The area, Beach Club and pool were perfect for our big family.
- Tara, Posted: 02/05/2020
Beautiful Villa. We all had plenty of space to spead out and relax. The outdoor pool, waterslide and grill area got plenty of use. We rented cars which is highly recommended. Tamarindo is about 20 to 30 minite drive, grocery stores are closer though. Loved it!

We stayed at this beautiful recently build home for a week and we can't explain how much we enjoyed it. We basically choose the house because it's one story, but it was more than we had expected.
Besides the home, the most impressive feature was the beach, just a few minute walk through the beautiful lush green neighborhood, where we had face to face encounters with howler monkeys, macaws, different species of birds, and even deers. Bonita Beach is a magical secluded beach with reefs and crystalline waters. During low tide it becomes a large lagoon ideal for snorkeling. We saw lobsters, many types of colored fish and even a turtle. It was so exciting. We had the beach and lagoon all to ourselves. A short stroll along the beach, with amazing rock formations and niches, took us over to the JW Marriott where we had a refreshing drink. As we continued our journey over the beach, we arrived to the Hacienda Pinilla Beach Club where we had a delicious lunch.
The home was spectacular and perfect for a family of 10, since all 4 rooms, with exception of the master, have the same layout, there were no arguments of who got which room. Each room had a daybed which made it super comfortable for the kids to hang out and sleep. The new modern kitchen was really a plus as well. The kids were super entertained with the waterslide, and the howler monkeys that hung out in the trees.
We are definitely coming back next year with our adventurous friends whom love to play golf, bike ride, and surf. Renting a golf cart also was also PLUS!

Amazing stay in a wonderful home! Mariam was very helpful and a pleasure to work with! She arranged a wonderful surf lesson with a guy Cairo and Moses and both were very knowledgeable and great teachers. She also arranged for us to work with a chef named Oscar and his cooking was Devine! I highly recommend working with Stay in Tamarindo. Thank you!
