This was our first time staying in Tamarindo. We loved Hacienda Pinilla and especially Casa Descanza. The pool was used quite a bit to cool off. Our maid was incredible who prepared the most incredible Costa Rican meals. Overall it was “Pura Vida”.

My group of 10 and I had an amazing stay to celebrate my 30th birthday. Elsa helped coordinate yoga at the air bnb as well as excursions and transportation throughout the stay. The home itself was even better than the pictures and grounds are stunning. The air bnb is nestled in a beautiful community. I would strongly consider renting golf carts or a car for transportation as Ubers are not the best in this area and are not always able to get through security despite prior authorization. Xiomara was fantastic and cooked the most an amazing breakfast and snacks. Elsa and Sam were very responsive and checked in on us throughout the stay. Overall we had a great experience and would definitely recommend staying here. I’ll be back!

Thank you so much for your lovely review, Jessica! We are very happy to hear you had a wonderful time celebration at Casa Descanza, and that the staff were there for you to have the best vacation. We totally agree with your recommendation, we always encourage our guests to rent a car to move around the area and go to Tamarindo town, as Ubers are quite new in the area (we can also arrange private transportation if it's requested ahead of time). We would love to host you back in the near future ? Pura Vida

Let me just start by saying that Elsa was AMAZING even from the planning part. Elsa literally helped us plan everything from excursions to just rides we needed throughout the week we there. The house was amazing and the pool was such a vibe. Having someone that can also cook breakfast and tidy up the house daily was super nice. I would highly recommend this house and this company!

We loved out stay at Casa Descanza! Xiomara and Elsa were spectacular. The house mom helped us with breakfasts, and dips preparation, and delicious cocktails, and Elsa took care of our itinerary and recommendations. We only had to enjoy and relax, amazing!

My family and I had the best time in Costa Rica. The house was amazing, the property was in perfect condition and the house was fully stocked with everything you could need.
The hosting team was extremely attentive. It was like having a private concierge. They helped us book several excursions and connected us with a chef and live music artist for several relaxing dinners at home around the pool.
I highly recommend Casa Descansa and this property management team. 5 stars!

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!

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

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.

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

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.

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!

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!
