Family Vacation
The house and property were amazing and spot on to the pictures! This was our first family vacation with the kids and grandkids and there was plenty of room for all 10 of us. I can’t say enough about this place and the amazing time we had. It was so magical. We had a great view of the golf course and giant red Macaws in the tree on the course. We had a family of monkeys come visit a few times in the trees in the front yard. There is so much to do on the property but some days we didn’t even leave the house it was so relaxing in the back yard by the pool. From the start of booking to the last day of our trip, our concierge Elsa was amazing. She helped us find a chef, photographer and helped navigate travel arrangements in the area and anything else we needed. We could not have done this trip with out her help. Also our housekeeper Xiomara….she was the perfect host. She made us amazing breakfasts and snacks and made sure we were taken care of throughout the day. She was so friendly and attentive to us all. I would definitely go back to this house if we can ever make it back to Costa Rica. The beaches near by were a bit rocky in some areas but still plenty of beachfront to enjoy a swim, boogie board or surf. Hacienda Panilla is quite large so definitely recommend a car or golf cart to get around. We had issues with the golf cart provider (not part of Hacienda Panilla) and our cart kept breaking down but as frustrating as it was we made some memories we will never forget

Beautiful place and very well appointed. Concierge services and daily in house cleaning/cooking was amazing! The only issue we had was a broken refrigerator but it was addressed quickly which was great. I would recommend the house have 4 bikes so that people could use them as they liked. Biking around that area would be so perfect! Also a few pool rafts would be a nice touch for lounging in the pool on this beautiful hot afternoons. All in all a great trip!

Elsa and Xiomara were absolutely fantastic. Elsa was responsive to all of our questions and requests, helping us set up excursions, dinners and any issues that came up. Xiomara ensured the house was super clean, breakfast was served and snacks were always available whenever we needed.
I absolutely loved the house and once the pool was clean, it was gorgeous to hang around and bask in the sun. I'd definitely stay here again and I'll recommend it to my friends.

Terrific 50 Birthday Celebration
It was a wonderful place to reconnect with our dearest friends. The patio looks out toward a majestic tree with nesting red macaws. It was wonderful to wake up early and listen to various animals beginning their day. The pool was wonderful. But the most wonderful thing about the place is all the kind people who took care of us. The house keeper cooked wonderful breakfasts. Elsa helped coordinate some excursions and massages for nine people with patience and kindness. The driver and tour guides were knowledgeable and also very patient.

Casa Descanza and the entire team was a dream come true to work with. Every detail was taken care of thanks to Elsa, Dani and the team. Every recommendation for attractions around the area was phenomenal. The house was gorgeous, clean and our group of 10 had a wonderful time. I cannot recommend this stay enough!

Our stay at Casa Descanza was excellent. The house handled our two families, and extra guests perfectly. The pool and outdoor area were perfect for relaxing after a morning surf. The housekeeper and concierge will make your stay worry free and enjoyable.

Great stay. Elsa is an awesome concierge who helped us booked our rental cars, find local chefs and food, and find excursions. She was very quick to respond to all our messages. Xiomara was a great house mom. She made delicious breakfasts, did laundry and kept the house spotless every day. The pool and living spaces were beautiful. We had a great time

Vacation in Paradise
Casa Descanza was like paradise the views were beautiful and the property was a hidden gem. I celebrated my mother’s 70th birthday and she had a wonderful time. Elsa (property manager) and Xiomara (house guest) were the BEST they provided us with everything we needed. I look forward to going back!

Pura Vida living at its best !
Casa Descanza is a wonderful villa overlooking the 1st green of Hacienda Pinilla Golf Club. The daily cook/housekeeper is a game changer. She prepared breakfast each morning with the groceries that we brought. She made the beds, did light wash and fixed our appetizers each afternoon before leaving. The beds are comfortable and the kitchen is great. We spent most of our time around the pool, watching the golfers, grilling fish and looking at the birds including scarlet macaws. The concierge, Elsa, is very responsive and helpful. There are seasonal specials such as a half day fishing trip so be sure to ask. The house is a 10 minute drive to Playa Langosta which is beautiful and not overcrowded.

Let me start by saying the villa is absolutely beautiful the pics doesn't do the property any justice, it is breathtaking in person. I traveled to Costa Rica to celebrate my mother's 70th birthday. Our stay at Tamarindo was awesome I recommend renting a car to make travel more accessible. Elsa and Xiomara were the absolute BEST, their customer service was stellar and any minor issues were resolved within a timely manner. I highly recommend staying at this property if you want to experience the beautiful views that CR has to offer. LC

Xiomara was so wonderful! The house was beautiful and very well kept. You will absolutely need some form of transportation to stay at this house. We had a golf cart and two cars for a family of 9.
Niki - Posted: 6/17/2023
Thank you for your nice review, Niki, and for emphasize on the recommendation of having transportation. We always try to recommend our guests to rent a vehicle so they will have more flexibility and freedom to move around the area, and the concierge can gladly assist with the different options! We are happy to know you had a great time at Casa Descanza. Pura Vida :)

Booked for my girlfriend 30th Birthday. It was exactly as the description listed on the airbnb. The backyard was best part but overall the entire house was super spacious. The benefit was having a bathroom in each room. Elsa was the one that helped get us setup with everything prior. From booking cars, atvs, massages, which saved a lot of time for us to do research. I would def book here again.

Thank you so much for helping us have a great vacation in Costa Rica!
This “Stay in Tamarindo” estate was absolutely wonderful and the best place to stay for vacation in the Tamarindo area. The place is exactly as pictured and so spacious, even for a group of 12. (Of note, there is actually a small half bathroom on the first floor which is great for the individuals who have the bedroom with no ensuite bathroom) Xiomara was the best ‘house-mom’ for the group! She came from 8-4pm every day to cook our group the most delicious breakfast and did light cleaning in all of the rooms! The best addition to our vacation. Lastly, Elsa was the best concierge! I spent months prior in contact with her planning this group vacation. She had answers to all my questions. Excursions, transportation, golf carts, hiring chefs, pre-stocking food, getting downtown - she handled it all! When we arrived, she was very responsive to any issues/questions and made the vacation seamless. Our group had a fantastic time and hope to be back to visit soon!

Second short stay in Descanza for me. I appreciate the changements in the decoration. Good plan to have decided to add a fifth room. It’s comfortable to have the choice between two different terraces. Most of all it’s a pleasure to see Xiomara: she is smiling and seems happy to work in the house she is attentive and sees immediately what must be done.

Beautiful home & a wonderful vacation in Costa Rica
Casa Descanza is a beautiful home and our family enjoyed our stay. The home is very comfortable, nicely decorated, well-kept and our party of 9 had plenty of room to enjoy our stay. The house mom is a wonderful benefit for this property. She made fantastic breakfasts and kept up with the laundry and cleaning so we had more time to enjoy our vacation.

Family vacation
The house was perfect! It was big enough for all of us to have our own rooms (5 main bedrooms plus a small additional room with a single bed). Internet worked really well, which was important for us as some needed to work while we were there. It was so clean and modern. The outdoor living space with the pool was amazing. We were outside so much! If you got too hot, there was A/C in all of the rooms, so you could control the temperature of each room. Plus the outdoor space had blinds and ceiling fans if it got too sunny or hot. We cooked a few nights but enjoyed exploring the fantastic local restaurants (most of which were an 8-10 minute drive). Elsa, our contact at "Stay in Tamarindo" (who rents the house) was amazing. If there were any problems or questions, she responded extremely quickly. She also organized a couple of day trips for us which took the stress away from trying to do the research ourselves. What we didn't realize when we booked the rental was that there is someone there during the days who tidies the house and also cooks the most fabulous breakfasts (we provided the food). Xiomara was the kindest person and an amazing cook. She was truly an amazing person! She was so quiet that we didn't even realize that she was there. This house was amazing as was our experience with Stay In Tamarindo!

Beautiful house on the golf course. Very clean and comfortable. Morning coffee in the outdoor living area was a highlight for us on the trip! The amenities included with Hacienda Pinella are great. It's a short ride to outstanding uncrowded beaches with amenities right there including restaurants, pools, gym, etc.
