Wonderful stay! We have an incredible vacation at Casa Costa Blanca. Elsa, the concierge, help us booking services and activities and we had a great time, and the in house staff was incredible. The views to the beach and the ocean are amazing, all you can dream about. Highly recommended!

We would stay here every time. The location is PERFECT. Right in front of the beach, so we were able to watch the sunset from he pool! We especially loved the elite services, having breakfast prepared every morning was amazing. Also, let me mention the outstanding service from Elsa who works with the property company- she was so helpful booking activities and answering our questions. Thank you for having us!

A Slice of Heaven
A magical week in paradise for our extended family ages 4 to 76. We had delightful afternoons in the pool and sunset swims in the ocean. Howler monkeys, gray fox, and even Pacific green turtles and iguanas kept us company. We could not have asked for a better way to close out 2023 and start 2024. The staff was excellent in every way.

Our home for the week, Casa Costa Blanca, was exactly as advertised and we could not have been happier with the location and features. Mariam and Elsa were excellent to work with and ensured all of the details were in place for a wonderful family trip. Thanks Stay in Tamarindo!!!

WoW!
Our family of twelve (including 4 small children) had an absolute wonderful time! Location, Location, Location! This home is absolutely in the best spot. With its own beach and awesome Bocci Ball area. We were always busy enjoying the ocean, enjoying the Bocci Ball, enjoying the awesome pool or enjoying the food and beverages prepared by our wonderful staff! Everything was really accessible by golf cart! The beach club, the golf, the mountain biking. The individual suites were well appointed, and the home was just totally excellent in every way. The gated community gave our family a wonderful sense of security. Excursions? Yep! All secured by our unbelievable host, Mariam. Every family member voted this trip as the best and Costa Blanca played a very special part in it. The young kids loved collecting the Hermit Crabs and then letting them go. Everything was perfect!

Our family's vacation at Stay in Tamarindo beach front house (Costa Casa Blanca) for 8 nights was fantastic! Mariam was very helpful setting up excursions well in advance and recommended several chef's to cook for all 11 of us ( 6 adults and 5 kids under 5 years old). The daily housekeepers were super and flexible on shifting their 8 hours shifts to match our needs. Pool was great and definitely need a car or a golf cart to get around. Walk the neighborhood to seek the Howler monkeys but they start their howling around 5:30am. Great experience and good people Pura Vida will be your new phrase of the Costa Rican Life Jerry & Karen of Georgia

Cannot say enough great things about this property
First off, the house is absolutely stunning. Plenty of space for everyone, especially outdoors. The pool was the #1 spot for everyone for sure. If we weren’t in the pool, the tidal pools were a great place to hang out for sunsets and beach time. Mariam was a fantastic host and always there when we had any questions. The housekeeping crew was constantly keeping things tidy and helped make a few breakfasts and cocktails for us. We used Flamingo foods for a majority of our breakfast lunch and dinners and they were so wonderful to have so highly recommend them! There is an identical layout of bedrooms and living space on each floor so we often hung out downstairs while they cooked upstairs. It’s only a short drive from Tamarindo which is amazing. Definitely check out Lola’s (10 minute drive) and the beach club (5 minute drive or ten minute walk) - both were quite lovely.

We had a great experience at Casa Costa Blanca, holding a full family vacation of 16 including the Grandparents. The house is beautiful and perfect for large groups and all the amenities of the Pinilla property were fantastic. Mariam did a great job facilitating a number of adventures for our group and coordinating a chef to come in as well. Everyone was a pleasure to work with and very professional!

Wow, just wow!!
The photos of this property don’t do it justice. The gated golf community where this property is located is also beautiful and secluded so you feel safe and secure. The rooms are all gorgeous and the beds extremely comfortable. I don’t recall anyone in our group of 14 complaining about their beds or sleep. The pool is amazing with an infinity edge that overlooks the beach. The management staff at “Stay In Tamarindo” were SOOO helpful and made our stay extra special and stress free. A big shout out to Mariam who fielded a ton of questions from our group before and during our stay. I can’t say enough about this property - stop searching and just book it!

Amazing on all fronts. One of my favorite memories of our whole trip is when we pulled up and got to explore the property our whole crew (3 families - 6 adults and 7 kids teenagers) were completely blow away.

Peaceful Paradise
Our week at Casa Costa Blanca was so relaxing and peaceful! The outdoor space and pool are second to none. The sunset views from the beach are stunning. The staff takes care of all your needs. The concierge, Mariam, is so helpful and efficient in planning everything and answering all your questions. We used the airport transport service and had rental cars delivered to the house. This was very convenient and we were happy to have our own vehicle for trips to Tamarindo. We used a chef service for a few dinners which everyone enjoyed. We loved Lola’s, Pangas Beach Club, and Dragonfly for restaurants. The Beach Club on the property is very nice for lunch and swimming at the beach with the availability to rent surf and boogie boards. We enjoyed zip lining, horseback riding, golf, and a sunset catamaran cruise. I can’t say enough about how wonderful this property is. We will definitely return to this peaceful paradise!

Fantastic home in a great location!
Our family loved this home. The property was immaculately maintained and the onsite housekeepers and gardener were amazing. We rented golf carts and used them to get around the community. There is a beautiful beach about a 10 minute golf cart drive away. We snorkeled in front of the house during low tide and explored the tide pools that form out on the rocks. The howler monkeys hung out in the trees next door and we saw lots of iguanas, birds, and baby sea turtles. A perfect stay for all ages.

Absolutely Wonderful Week
Our stay at Costa Blanca was perfect! The house, pool, setting, staff, weather, food, excursions, drivers….I could go on and on! Our group was 6 adults and 4 children. We rented two six seater golf carts for getting around the area. Local restaurants (Lola’s, JW Marriott, the Beach Club)and going to other beaches. Needed to line up a ride with our concierge Mariam if we wanted to go into town to buy groceries or go to dinner. The outside cabana was truly where we lived. We saw monkeys, a giant turtle lying eggs, whales and pretty cool birds! The staff was great and made us a wonderful breakfast each morning. The excursions we went on were lots of fun! Mariam was the best, very helpful with any and all questions and planning. We highly recommend Costa Blanca!

Wonderful Week at Costa Blanca
Our family of 10, six adults and 4 kids had the best time! Very pretty, very well taken care of home with a truly amazing pool and cabana area. We were outside almost nonstop! We arranged a few excursions thru the concierge Mariam who was very helpful with planning before and then during when we needed rides, hired masseuses or had questions. We had a fishing trip, zip lining and hired a wonderful Chef and his wife Adriana to come to make dinner one night. We rented two six seater electric carts to get around to other beaches, the Beach Club ( lunch, pool, rented boogie boards) and Lola’s restaurant. The house staff was excellent. Great breakfasts and any appetizers or pico or smoothies you would want, they will make. William is the maintenance person and was around if anything needed to be fixed or worked on. Highly recommend Costa Blanca! We did not rent a car so we did need to hire a car to go into Tamarindo for groceries. It was fine, but next time we will plan our food shopping a little better. We went in three times. Auto Mercado was an excellent grocery store.

A little piece of paradise
First off Gabby, Xioma, and Mariam made the house and grounds 5 stars. Yes the home is nice and the pool is an amazing addition to the home along with the outside kitchen but those ladies made our experience even better! Breakfast was superb and always brought to the outside dining area. Fresh linens and towels washed daily. Mariam, the concierge, set up excursions and gave us so many recommendations for places to visit and places to shop (groceries). The house was nice but the kitchen was lacking in some areas but I’ve been told it is going to be remodeled very soon. So I won’t factor that into my review. Overall we had a great time and the home is wonderful! The ocean is beautiful but not usable due to the rocks and the rough surf. When the tide is out is an awesome time to walk the beach. Howler monkeys were in the trees around the home. There were nice beach chairs and umbrellas to use. We loved our time at Casa Costa Blanca!

You Just Can't Ask for Anything More!
You just can’t ask for anything more at Casa Costa Blanca! The house & accommodations far exceed any place I’ve ever been and the staff were great! Pictures do not do this place justice! Mariam was a true blessing. We originally booked this trip back in 2020, rescheduled for 2021 and then finally got to go in 2022 and Mariam was right there through it all! She even assisted when we had a last minute disruption to 2 guests coming but she jumped right into action and took care of everything! She helped with excursions, getting our car rentals booked, and gave us some amazing suggestions on restaurants (Pangas was our favorite!) I also can’t say enough about the other staff who took care of the cleaning and cooking breakfast; breakfast was something we looked forward to everyday! It was the best! We had a family of iguanas around the yard and howler monkeys in the trees next door. We’d wake up to the sounds of them. It was just amazing! I would not hesitate to book this place again and again! If you’re looking for a top notch place…this is it!!!

My friends and I had an amazing time at Casa Costa Blanca to celebrate my 30th birthday. The house was perfect for a large group and slept 20 people comfortably. The girls who worked at the house were lovely and made us a delicious breakfast every morning and drinks in the afternoon. Finally, everything was perfectly planned by the incredibly patient and organized Mariam. Mariam helped plan all activities and was always on call if any issues came up. I was able to have a relaxing vacation thanks to Mariam. I would absolutely come to Tamarindo again and stay at Casa Costa Blanca. 10/10!

This property is absolutely incredible! The pictures do not even show how beautiful it is. We spent 7 days here and had a wedding on the property that was perfect. The housekeepers were great and came everyday to make us breakfast. I would recommend using the service that stocks the house with food. We did this and it was helpful to have and we also stopped at the store on the way. Have them take you to the regular grocery store, they took us to one that has more American food and it was expensive. The view from the pool of the ocean is spectacular! The sunsets divine. I would suggest getting a golf cart to get to the beach club - the food there is amazing and its great swimming in the ocean there. You can walk down the beach it takes about 30 min but it needs to be low tide.We had spa treatments there that were great. We did a couple excursions that were amazing. Sunset cruise is a must do, it was an incredible afternoon. We also did ziplines and tubing down a river which was a highlight. Mariam, Kate and Nadine organized everything and coordinated everthing seamlessly. If you are planning a party it is worth it to have them plan and organize the whole thing. It was a dream wedding and such the perfect place to have it. Security at this property is tight - make sure you let the staff know if you have a taxi coming ect. we had some incidents where it was hard to get them to access the gate. The gardeners are great they clean up everyday and keep the hot tub and pool pristine. The bbq is great!You need to buy ice!! This house is so roomy we had 23 stay and it doesn't feel crowded! It is an absolutely gorgeous home with outdoor living space.

What made our stay unbelievable was the attention the staff gave our families. Everyday our home was cleaned and immaculate and our breakfast was prepared and delicious. The ladies that took care of all of the daily home and food needs were so kind and willing to do everything and anything, so we could enjoy ourselves and not be preoccupied with chores and cooking!

Wonderful vacation for family of 14
We visited with our extended family (ages 14-81) over Thanksgiving and couldn't have asked for a better experience! Our group of 14 was more than comfortable and we loved the house, pool, and location. We rented 2 large golf carts for the week which made traveling to the Beach Club and JW Marriott easy. We walked from the Beach Club to Lola's twice and enjoyed surfing and lunch (the walk is just over a mile). Our housekeepers were lovely and kept the house spotless. Mariam made the whole trip easy - arranging our airport shuttles, golf carts, in-house massages, and recommending caterers (we had 2 dinners catered at the house). We bought most of our groceries in Tamarindo on a day trip early in the week. Next time, we'll be more organized and buy more in Tamarindo. We supplemented our food with trips to the market in Hacienda Pinella, but supplies there were limited and expensive. We highly recommend this property and hope to return!

Lovely holiday at Casa Costa Blanca
Our group of 14 (ages 14-81) spent a wonderful week at Casa Costa Blanca! The house and pool area were perfect for our group, with plenty of room for everyone to spread out. Mariam made preparing for our trip easy - helping with golf cart rentals, in-house massages, airport shuttles, and catering. We highly recommend this residence and hope return soon!

Absolute Paradise
Stayed for a week and this was literal paradise! The location was great - close to Tamarindo and anything we needed. The concierge helped us with ALL last minute items we asked about (rental car, surf boards, etc). The property is within a gated community and we felt completely safe and at ease during our stay. You pretty much have a private beach all to yourself - it is rocky and not very swimmable during the day but still gorgeous and we did snorkel some! The pool was more than enough for us to swim. Rooms are LARGE and everyone had enough space to spread out and be alone if they wanted too. Outdoor space is the best part - we grilled every night and loved how much outdoor seating this house has - couches, loungers, tables, etc. I cannot say enough good things about this beach house, we made so many memories here we will cherish for a lifetime! The only minor thing was construction next door got very loud during a few days of our stay and we did have a slight issue with the hot tub. The concierge Mariam was always on top of sending the pool crew out to look at the hot tub but for some reason it did only work for a little more than half the days during our stay and the other half it was cold/jets did not work. WOULD NOT HESITATE TO BOOK even with that issue and we plan to return for a reunion trip in a few years !! Amazing service and zero issues!! Thank you so much Mariam!

I had planned a retreat in the San Juan Del Sur area of Nicaragua for a group of 16 women. When we couldn’t get across the border, I had to re-create a retreat in less than a few hours. Finding this home, near Tamarindo, was serendipitous! Literally, I booked it the day of and we were so thankful that we could pivot and have an amazing week. Mariam, the concierge is incredible — she is a wealth of knowledge and so wonderful to work with. The views & the outdoor space are stunning.
The interior of the house could use a bit of updating…but, we spent most of our time outside. We really appreciated the daily housekeeping and Gabi and Meredit who cooked us delicious breakfasts! Highly recommend a stay here if you’re traveling with a big group.
Note - you will need to arrange a car or plan to take taxis when you want to go into town (it’s about a 20 min drive)

Our stay at Costa Blanca in Hacienda Pinilla exceeded all our expectations!! The house was beautiful and accommodated all our needs, we were a family of 12 adults. The pool and outdoor patio areas were absolutely beautiful. The beach and sunsets amazing. All the services, maid and maintenance, kept the house immaculate. Rosa and Gabby were there every day to provide wonderful breakfasts, lunch, washed linens and clothes everyday. We have never been so pampered! Mariam scheduled all our dinners, activities and transportation. The activities and shuttles were top quality, friendly, and provided us with memorable experiences. The restaurants suggested were excellent, our at home dinners provided by the Chefs/restaurants Mariam arranged for us were 5 star quality from food prep, setup and cleanup. I highly recommend anyone interested in a Costa Rica vacation to to stay here.

Spectacular experience, home, and vacation!
First, I'd just like to say that Mariam is amazing. She was available, thorough, and provided all that we needed to make our (3) family stay amazing. Next, the home and grounds are stunning. We loved our morning walks on the beach, coming back to the house after excursions, private chef dinners (highly recommended), and evening group experiences in the pool and jacuzzi. We had the sound of waves crashing, lightening in the distance, fireflies, shooting stars, our favorite music, and with some delicious wine we wanted the nights and this vacation to last forever. It's a magical place. Howler monkeys were in the trees, iguanas visited us daily, and we even had some adorable dogs come visit one afternoon. We loved every minute. The only bummer is that our vacation had to end.

This property was amazing! It is even more beautiful than in the pictures. Our group of 14 had a great stay here. It is easily accessible to lots of the small beach towns in the area and Mariam was incredibly helpful throughout our stay answering any and all questions quickly. We would go back in a heartbeat, highly recommend!

Paradise!!! A true vacation!!!
We had a wonderful time at Casa Costa Blanca. The house is set up beautifully. We loved the pool area overlooking the beach and the ocean. The outdoor area is wonderful. My kids loved it. The pool was big and hot tub was so nice by the BBQ. Iguanas visited and lots of birds. So pretty. We were spoiled by the staff. They prepared a wonderful breakfast every morning and kept the house spotless. Mariam helped me organize so many activities. From grocery service to chef prepared meals from Panga’s, we were spoiled all week. We played and relaxed all week… a true vacation in a paradise setting. Thank you for a perfect week!!!

Incredible stay, would return in a heartbeat
This property was beyond beautiful. Our group of 14 had an incredible stay and would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to accommodate large groups. The property was well cared for, very private even though it is in a community, and has stunning views from everywhere in the house. We were a close commute to tamarindo and had lots of wonderful food options within 20-30 min drive. The staff was so helpful and lovely and cooked us traditional Costa Rican breakfasts which were to die for. I hope we are able to visit again SOON!

A MUST Beachfront House
This is the perfect place if you are looking to get the most out of your trip. The house is amazing, it has everything you need, the jacuzzi and the pool are perfect to have fun during the day, just few steps from the beach to see every sunset. Mariam is always there at every moment to help with anything you need, transportation, food, and literally any service you need in your trip. Totally recommend it, you won't regret.

After 25 years of looking we found the perfect place with the best concierge
For 25 years we have traveled the Caribbean, the Bahamas and the US. We finally found the perfect place. This place has the most welcoming pool, has the beach within 30 yards and the the thatched roof terrace is where you will find yourself most of the day. We have stayed here several times and it was the perfect place to hold our destination wedding. All our guests loved it. But you must use Mariam as your concierge. She knows everyone and keeps her cool when things are happening fast (first time guests from the states). :-). Take your family or friends to this place and they will not spend the day watching tv or with their faces in their phones.

Family vacation
Our Family needed a getaway from the city and all Covid related issues. Casa Costa Blanca was a great fit for us. The Staff of StayinTamarindo was great from the moment of the booking all through our stay. They made us feel they were always there for whatever our needs were. The house itself is in a perfect location and has an ideal distribution for families that want to be together but still want to maintain independence. Incredible common area with superb pool and jacuzzi that oversee the ocean. One morning we woke up to the sound of howler monkeys which was a great feeling. I have been going to Hacienda Pinilla for over 15 years and I can tell you this house is the best location on the property. I recommend 100% this house and specially to book it through stayintamarindo. Fernando

Wonderful Costa Rica Vacation
Over the past 4 years we have rented 5 homes for family vacation. This home was great and had plenty of room for our family. We had one issue with the AC in a bedroom that was never properly repaired, but AC can take parts that need to be ordered. House keepers and manager were wonderful. The house itself is within a gated community, which includes a JW Marriott. There is a beach club that is available for use of residents and guests. The beach was vacant most of the time unlike may beaches in Costa Rica. Plan on needing transportation rent a car, as Tamarindo and Playa Flamingo are about 30 minutes away. While there we had an accident and found the emergency health care in Tamarindo to be excellent. While the clinics are not equal to the ones in the US the doctor and staff were excellent. We needed an X-ray and had to be taken to another clinic to have the X-ray taken then back to have a shoulder reset. Great service. All in all this is a vacation that was easy, lovely and very private. If you are looking for night life, and hustle and bustle for a vacation this is not it. If you want to have family time undisturbed, read a book and just relax this home is perfect.

Wilson's Stay
Everything was perfect! The house was beautiful. The staff was warm and kept everything so clean. My one negative review is the tile texture from the house to the pool. I fell so hard on the slick tile I am still in pain. I also had 2 guests fall very hard hurting and bruising their hips and knees. An immediate fix would be placing mats on the walkways before someone breaks a hip.

Fun time in Costa Rica
Recently took my family to Casa Costa Blanca in Costa Rica and had a fabulous time there. The home was spacious and clean and the outdoor sitting area was perfect. The housekeepers are so sweet and kept the home looking clean and tidy. The swimming, surfing beach is about 10 minutes drive from the house with a pool and food items. Great time had by all.

Casa Costa Blanca is the best!
Our stay at Casa Costa Blanca was everything we hoped for and more. It's in the 4,500 acre gated, beautiful and peaceful Hacienda Pinilla, away from the hustle and bustle of nearby public beaches, villages and Tamarindo. However, it's close enough to visit them and get a feel of Costa Rica's "Pura Vida." Playa Langosta is only a few minutes away by car and was like a private beach area with lounge chairs, shade and a sandy beach for enjoying playful waves and a walk down the beach to surfing. A guided horse ride at the equestrian center was phenomenal. The house was fantastic, very comfortable with plenty of bedrooms and living space. The best was the stunning, huge pool and outdoor living area looking out over the beach and ocean. The beach is sandy with a rocky reef for exploring during low tide and snorkeling. Everyday, except Sunday, from 8 am to 4 pm, Marvin, Gabby and Rosa did a wonderful job of making breakfast (we suppled the food), cleaning, maintaining the grounds and house operations. Marvin speaks excellent English. Cris assisted with hiring a cook for several days to prepare a lunch which we used as our main meal for the day. She also assisted with setting up scuba diving at Pacific Dive Center in Playa Flamingo. With the private community ocean front location, house, pool, outside living area and helpful assistance, it was a special vacation for us all!

Perfect Place For A Magical Destination Wedding!
Casa Costa Blanca is truly perfect. My (now) husband and I had our destination wedding here with 30 guests. We had 19 people in this house and another 11 at Casa Orchidea (5 minute walk down the street). The guests we had at Casa Costa Blanca were all in the age range of 2-80. Everyone LOVED the house! Enough comfortable sleeping for everyone! Us wild young things stayed in the main house while my parents/Grandma slept in the Casita over the garage. This house was perfect for all of our friends and family to unite and get to know each other. Top Memories: 1. The pool. Most amazing pool EVER with attached hot tub. The pool also has a very shallow sunbathing / toddler part to it which was perfect for our 2-year old nephew to Wade around in. 2. The view. The view you get from the pictures is definitely amazing but the view you get in-person is breathtaking. I love how the beach is right there but it it sort of has a natural boundary from the house by the tree line. The sandy area beyond the pool is where we held our wedding ceremony!! 3. The concierge service and the entire staff at Stay In Tamarindo. Mariam and Adriana are an amazing concierge team. We did not hire a wedding planner but planned most of the wedding ourselves along with the advice of Mariam. Through my own research and with the help of her, we were able to contact all vendors needed for the wedding including a band, photographer, catering company etc. Marvin and our housekeepers / breakfast cooks were the most amazing and hospitable staff I've ever witnessed! They are at your house every day except Sunday and they cook breakfast and clean the entire house every day. You do have to buy your own groceries for breakfast but they will deliver it to the house for a small fee, which I totally recommend. You just tell Mariam what kind of food you want each morning and the breakfast chefs prepare it all (definitely have them make Gallo Pinto for you everyday for breakfast! Goes great with the eggs and bacon!) 4. The entire layout of the house is perfect. This place is a mansion. Loved how there was a living room and kitchen on the top floor and the bottom floor. Both floors are pretty much identical in layout. All the beds are super comfortable and we also loved sitting on the top balcony watching the sunsets. The outside canopy bed was a favorite hang out and the outdoor kitchen and bar area got a lot of use from us! 5. The beach sunsets around 5 are spectacular! Many nights we would all go out there and sit on the rocks and on the beach and just watch the sunset with a cocktail in hand. 6. There is snorkeling gear in the garage and many of our guests decided to go snorkel out in the water at low tide. Do not go in high tide because there are many rocks and you cannot see them but lots of beautiful fish were seen by those who snorkeled. 7. The beach club! Although this house is incredible enough on its own, we did venture to the Hacienda Pinilla Beach club a couple of days. It is not far from the house... About a 8 minute drive and just about a 40-minute beach walk if you feel like walking. They have a great restaurant, an awesome surfing/paddle boarding beach, (Lots of sand dollars!) and a lovely pool. We were there in early November so there was hardly anyone else there every time we went. 8. Nearby restaurants/catering: You HAVE to go to Cactus!! About a 15 minute drive. Very small place owned by a young man who is very passionate about his food. Wonderful meals here with a true local feel! The beach club has good food, as well as Lola's (good pizza and fun hang-out). We got Belly Fed Better to cater our wedding dinner, which was top-notch. We also had Sunset catering do a taco night for the whole group one evening. I would recommend both of these catering companies. 9. If you are having a wedding or a party of some sort while you are here, you have to hire Pinky Guaro as a live band to provide entertainment, without a doubt! They truly made our wedding and incredible party! This band is professional, high quality, and super duper fun. Tell Stephanie (lead singer) I sent ya! The band played under the outdoor palapa. It didn't rain, but the band and their equipment would've been covered from rain by the palapa roof had it would have rained. 10. I honestly cannot say enough good things about Casa Costa Blanca. It was the most amazing time of our lives. A lot of our guests had never even been out of the country before and they said it was the trip of their lifetime. Same with guests that had been out of the United States...everyone had the most amazing time at Casa Costa Blanca. So many memories!! The neighborhood is very well maintained and very safe. It is fun to take walks/jogs around the neighborhood streets. There is a small nature trail outside of the neighborhood gates where we saw an entire troop of howler monkeys with babies. Probably about 30 howler monkeys. A few of them also came to the house on a couple days, swinging in the trees. I would definitely recommend that some people in your group rent a car. Is very hard to get taxis into the gates because the security is so tight. It's nice to have the freedom to drive to Tamarindo or anywhere else you might please with your own rental car. Speaking of Tamarindo, there is no need to even go there. This house has everything you could need and this community has all the restaurants and beaches you could want. Much better food and vibes here than touristy/overpriced Tamarindo. Final thoughts: We had our dream wedding here thanks to everyone at Stay In Tamarindo and the entire housekeeping crew. It was a trip/wedding we will never forget and we hope to come back! Even if we don't stay at Casa Costa Blanca we would definitely love to stay at another property that is managed by Stayintamarindo.com because they were A++ through the entire booking process and through our entire vacation. I could go on forever... Stay at this house!! It's magical!!

This house was perfect for all of our friends and family to unite and get to know each other. Top Memories: 1. The pool. Most amazing pool EVER with attached hot tub. The pool also has a very shallow sunbathing / toddler part to it which was perfect for our 2-year old nephew to Wade around in. 2. The view. The view you get from the pictures is definitely amazing but the view you get in-person is breathtaking. I love how the beach is right there but it it sort of has a natural boundary from the house by the tree line. The sandy area beyond the pool is where we held our wedding ceremony!! 3. The concierge service and the entire staff at Stay In Tamarindo. Mariam and Adriana are an amazing concierge team. We did not hire a wedding planner but planned most of the wedding ourselves along with the advice of Mariam. Through my own research and with the help of her, we were able to contact all vendors needed for the wedding including a band, photographer, catering company etc. Marvin and our housekeepers / breakfast cooks were the most amazing and hospitable staff I've ever witnessed! They are at your house every day except Sunday and they cook breakfast and clean the entire house every day. You do have to buy your own groceries for breakfast but they will deliver it to the house for a small fee, which I totally recommend. You just tell Mariam what kind of food you want each morning and the breakfast chefs prepare it all (definitely have them make Gallo Pinto for you everyday for breakfast! Goes great with the eggs and bacon!) 4. The entire layout of the house is perfect. This place is a mansion. Loved how there was a living room and kitchen on the top floor and the bottom floor. Both floors are pretty much identical in layout. All the beds are super comfortable and we also loved sitting on the top balcony watching the sunsets. The outside canopy bed was a favorite hang out and the outdoor kitchen and bar area got a lot of use from us! 5. The beach sunsets around 5 are spectacular! Many nights we would all go out there and sit on the rocks and on the beach and just watch the sunset with a cocktail in hand. 6. There is snorkeling gear in the garage and many of our guests decided to go snorkel out in the water at low tide. Do not go in high tide because there are many rocks and you cannot see them but lots of beautiful fish were seen by those who snorkeled. 7. The beach club! Although this house is incredible enough on its own, we did venture to the Hacienda Pinilla Beach club a couple of days. It is not far from the house... About a 8 minute drive and just about a 40-minute beach walk if you feel like walking. They have a great restaurant, an awesome surfing/paddle boarding beach, (Lots of sand dollars!) and a lovely pool. We were there in early November so there was hardly anyone else there every time we went. 8. Nearby restaurants/catering: You HAVE to go to Cactus!! About a 15 minute drive. Very small place owned by a young man who is very passionate about his food. Wonderful meals here with a true local feel! The beach club has good food, as well as Lola's (good pizza and fun hang-out). We got Belly Fed Better to cater our wedding dinner, which was top-notch. We also had Sunset catering do a taco night for the whole group one evening. I would recommend both of these catering companies. 9. If you are having a wedding or a party of some sort while you are here, you have to hire Pinky Guaro as a live band to provide entertainment, without a doubt! They truly made our wedding and incredible party! This band is professional, high quality, and super duper fun. Tell Stephanie (lead singer) I sent ya! The band played under the outdoor palapa. It didn't rain, but the band and their equipment would've been covered from rain by the palapa roof had it would have rained. 10. I honestly cannot say enough good things about Casa Costa Blanca. It was the most amazing time of our lives. A lot of our guests had never even been out of the country before and they said it was the trip of their lifetime. Same with guests that had been out of the United States...everyone had the most amazing time at Casa Costa Blanca. So many memories!! The neighborhood is very well maintained and very safe. It is fun to take walks/jogs around the neighborhood streets. There is a small nature trail outside of the neighborhood gates where we saw an entire troop of howler monkeys with babies. Probably about 30 howler monkeys. A few of them also came to the house on a couple days, swinging in the trees. I would definitely recommend that some people in your group rent a car. Is very hard to get taxis into the gates because the security is so tight. It's nice to have the freedom to drive to Tamarindo or anywhere else you might please with your own rental car. Speaking of Tamarindo, there is no need to even go there. This house has everything you could need and this community has all the restaurants and beaches you could want. Much better food and vibes here than touristy/overpriced Tamarindo. Final thoughts: We had our dream wedding here thanks to everyone at Stay In Tamarindo and the entire housekeeping crew. It was a trip/wedding we will never forget and we hope to come back! Even if we don't stay at Casa Costa Blanca we would definitely love to stay at another property that is managed by Stayintamarindo.com because they were A++ through the entire booking process and through our entire vacation. I could go on forever... Stay at this house!! It's magical!!

Perfect vacation with 10 adults
We had 10 adults that stayed here. The property is exactly like the pictures. The outdoor patio and pool are amazing. The service was top notch. They set up excursions and rides for us and everything worked out perfectly. The breakfast they made was delicious. This house is a 20-25 minute drive from most restaurants, stores, etc so if you don’t have a car you need to plan ahead for a ride. We all loved this vacation and would definitely stay here again.

Casa Costa Blanca
First, our group consisted of 6 adults and 6 children. Everything was perfect for all of us! Most of our time was spent by the pool, Jacuzzi, and cabana and it could not have been better. All the bedrooms were perfect, and Gabbi made sure we were taken care of throughout the day. We had a group of 12 and never felt crowded. 4 of the nights we had the local chef option. When we come back to Casa Costa Blanca we will probably do this every night. The food was wonderful, and we enjoyed having the chef at the house more than we did eating out at the restaurants. Breakfast comes with the house, but you will need to buy the groceries (see below). We asked Gabbi what to buy and she cooked us a wonderful breakfast every morning. We did several excursions: Horse back riding, zip lining, surfing, fishing (1 marlin, 6 mahi mahi), and a catamaran cruise. All of it was top notch. During the catamaran cruise it rained the entire trip, but it was still a wonderful trip. We had a BBQ dinner at the Black Stallion Ranch. We had 12 people, but they cooked enough food for 20. The food was delicious. We ate, drank, and karaoke all night! Mariam made all the excursions bookings easy. The house comes with snorkel gear, and during low tide you can walk just to the left of the property and snorkel in a lagoon. We saw all types of marine life! If you are planning on a snorkel excursion, I would recommend just doing it in front of the property for free. Our surfing trip was at Avellanas Surf School, about a 20-minute drive from the house. The surf instructions were great. Everyone in our group learned how to surf from a 11-year-old to a 46-year-old. We ate at Lola's which is directly on the beach and spent the entire day at the surf camp. Driving- Driving was easy, however the roads may not be what you are accustomed to. The main highways are in good order, but once you turn onto a secondary street you are in for a slow bumpy ride. We bought groceries at the Auto Mercado just before the town of Tamarindo. The wine, beer, and food selection were good. I would advise stocking up and carry snacks and alcohol to the house. The drive to town is about 30 minutes because of the road conditions. Monkeys come to the house and hang out. If you have children buy fruit at the grocery store to feed the iguanas. Several of us jogged each morning and the roads in Hacienda Pinilla are perfect. If your debating about were to stay in Costa Rica, this is your place. Pura Vida!!!

The photos do not do this place justice. We were a group of 8 making our way through Costa Rica on a birthday celebration and this home was perfect. We had ample space (the second floor is a direct duplication of the first!), amazing backyard space, and a wonderful pool to enjoy. We played dominos, played music late into the night, grilled dinners and enjoyed the breakfast prepared by the lovely home keepers. Truly memorable!!!! Thank you to everyone who tended to us and made us feel so welcome!

Costa Blanca was a beautiful home and extremely well cared for. Mariam and the team at Stay in Tamarindo could not have been better. They coordinated our tours, gave great suggestions on local dining and activities and Marvin and Gabby were outstanding. There is so much to do we will be going back soon.

Exceeded all my expectations!! This house is incredible in every way!! The pictures don’t do it justice! On top of that, the staff at Stay in Tamarindo were incredible! From the moment the planning began with our concierge, Mariam, no detail was left undone. We had a very busy itinerary planned and it went off flawlessly!!! From the grocery shopping ahead of time, perfectly planned dinners, shuttle pick ups for all the activities. The house is simply breathtaking. We didn’t want to leave and we will be back!!

A dream Family Vacation!
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The location is impeccable. We could walk out to the beach from the pool to watch the subset every night. We spent as much time as possible enjoying the awesome outdoor kitchen area, which provided great shade options. There were too many great seating options , it was hard to choose sometimes! The rooms worked perfectly for our group size. The staff made us delicious breakfast every morning, and even made us some of the best homemade pico de Gallo and tortillas we've ever had! Overall, 10/10 would recommend!

Best Property in The Area!
Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Our stay at Casa Mar Azul was truly amazing. From the newly refurbished infinity pool/jacuzzi, BBQ and adjoining dinning/leisure deck and the panoramic ocean just foot steps away, to the lush surrounding grounds filled with native Costa Rican wildlife, the exterior of this facility, again, was truly amazing. Just when you thought it couldn't get any better, the interior of this hacienda was just as special. Too many bedrooms to count, each with their own bathroom/shower, view and individual climate controls. Beds appeared to be new and very comfortable and the rooms were well appointed with more than adequate furnishings. Two separate grand rooms, including kitchens, one upstairs and one down. Very spacious and everything worked! We had 18 people and not once did we fill cramped. More could be said about this facility, but I think you get the picture - this, again, is truly an amazing place. YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED ��. The Concierge Mariam was very helpful in arranging activities and ensuring our stay was amazing. The housekeeper and groundskeeper were very friendly and kept the house spotless. If you are looking for the perfect peaceful place that is secure and just close enough to the store, Tamarindo and my favorite beach bar and grill Lola's then don't hesitate this property is worth every penny and then some. The Pura Vida is STONG here! Thank you for making our vacation special...pura vida!

Pura Vida near Tamarindo!
We had an amazing couple week stay at this incredible beachfront property. This stunning house is perfectly located on a private beach just 30 minutes south of Tamarindo in between two famous surf spots just a short drive away. The house was absolutely beautiful, well decorated and very spacious with impressive pool and ocean views. The property was lovely with lush greens, palm trees, a pristine infinite pool and palapa area with outstanding ocean views. Very peaceful neighborhood and very private! We spent most of our time outside enjoying the pool, beach, spectacular sunsets, sounds of nature and occasionally seeing some wildlife. This place is Paradise, we had a wonderful experience and can’t wait to come back again soon!!
