Our stay at Villa Tranquila was amazing! Property Managers Eugene and Sary were also amazing! They went out of their way to make sure our stay was great. We had a family wedding and they helped navigate our event including flowers, cake, food suggestions and more. The food that was prepared for us was delicious. Cooks made local Costa Rican cuisine. All of our guests raved about the food. The cost of food was more affordable than expected. The house accommodated our 23 guests easily and we had room for more. It was at a good location, access to a great beach, golf course, mountain biking and lots more. We took a fishing charter and our cooks prepared the fish we caught. We plan to come again.

We had an absolutely incredible stay with Stay in Tamarindo. Not only was the house amazing, the service was impeccable. Cristina went ABOVE AND BEYOND for us for months. Having such a large group, she worked with all of the vendors to make sure we were getting the best rates and service. We were extremely lucky to have her (and so are you!) Eugene at the house was an amazing host...I can't say enough good things.

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Tranquila. 12 family and friends traveled together. The owner’s Gene and Sary made us feel welcomed immediately. They saw to our every need. All our activities were booked for us and a shuttle was provided to get us to and from our chosen adventures. All 12 members said they would return to this same home.

We could not ask for a better place to stay. The help we had from Eugene and his wife the property manager was fantastic which made everything much easier for us. Kimberly the maid and cook made our stay so comfortable and easy having breakfast and dinners made for us each day. This allowed us to enjoy our days without worry as to what we were going to cook.

We held our family reunion at Villa Tranquila for 10 days in February 2018. There were 12 attendees (9 adults, 3 children) and the venue was exceptional in every aspect. The Hacienda Pinilla location was perfect for us; close enough to Tamarindo and far enough from Tamarindo. In fact, there was so much to do at the villa and nearby beaches, we seldom ventured from Hacienda Pinilla. The overall level of service provided by Eugene and Sary was unparalleled and very much appreciated. The cooking staff was skilled and accommodating. Everything was superb!

If you’re looking for a fantastic vacation in a beautiful setting, look no further! Highly recommended.

To our host and the helpers/cooks (foods were absolutely delicious!!) You guys are so awesome that we still have an island hangover!!

Pura vida,
James & Jet Lee

Great house- perfect for multiple families. 8 separate suites with an upstairs and downstairs common area that seats large groups. However, be prepared for the detached location. We felt like we were in Kansas when we were at the house. The view from the front of the house is a cow pasture. Wish someone would have informed us prior to trip that we DEFINITELY would need multiple rental vehicles to get to the beaches, to town, etc...We were encouraged to rent golf carts which was a wasted $850. You are limited with GC's. can not take them on the beach, or out of resort area. Just rent vehicles as you will need them to get to town, beach, etc... Eugene is the guy you want to talk to; speaks great English and can connect you to anything or anyone you need. However for some reason we were not directed to him until we arrived. By that time we had already made plans that were too late to cancel. Speak with Eugene prior to your trip! He is "the man"

21 ladies for 5 was an AWESOME experience! We loved every minute of our stay... From the caretaker Eugene, he was there to help us with anything we needed. The housekeeping was on point daily. I would definately recommend this place for a girls trip, golf trip, family reunion, team building... Clean and spacious!!!

Our stay was a 5 star experience! There were 23 of us in total, all family from young to old. Everything from the Villa, the staff, concierge, drivers, housekeepers and most importantly Eugene and Sary were amazing!!! Eugene made our trip that much more enjoyable. He made sure everything was always perfect and even drove us into town one night after 8pm for dinner. We would definitely highly recommend and stay again! (We stayed from August 8-15)
THANK YOU to everyone at Stay in Tamarindo!

1 word: Awesome. Villa Tranquila itself was a sight to behold. It was a home away from home where my family and I enjoyed the villa tremendously, ranging from the spacious rooms to its expansive backyard with an amazing pool to cap things out! Service and housekeeping were stellar! My family and I look forward to coming back in 2018 for the next Semana Santa!

We loved Costa Rica and the Villa was more than we could have asked for. There was plenty of room for our large group of 23 comfortably. I would recommend this villa for any one looking for a safe and scenic place to go for vacation. We were able to do zip-lining, an ATV tour, a Palo Verde rain-forest tour, horseback riding, massages and a animal safari which the kids loved. Since we were located on the 18th hole it was only fitting that we gold as well. Cristina helped me plan and arrange everything which made the trip so easy for us and she even arranged for a vehicle to be delivered to the villa to get around. Eugene was excellent the entire trip, he made sure we had everything we needed and even took us on a tour of the property so we knew where everything was located. We had the entire week catered by Gusto Tamarindo, Francesco and his team were amazing. The food was excellent and all made with all fresh local ingredients. We cannot wait to return to Villa Tranquila.

From the initial booking to our eventual arrival, we had the support of knowledgeable and helpful staff every step of the way. The house is a wonderful blend of private space and large areas to hang out as a large group. The house is beautiful as the pictures show and there were bikes to use to get around the local area. The beach club is wonderful as is just staying at the villa around the pool or reading in the shade.

We stayed in Villa Tranquila for my wedding week with my 10 bridesmaids and their significant others. The week in itself was the best week ever, but having our home base be Villa Tranquila really made the week complete! Stay in Tamarindo was so great to work with, extremely responsive and helpful. The house manager, Eugene, & his lovely wife were INCREDIBLE. We all felt SO comfortable knowing they were just a phone call away if we needed anything at all. One night he even drove some of my girlfriends that wanted to go into town for dinner down to Tamarindo so that they wouldn't have to call a cab! The cleaning service did an outstanding job as we came home to a spotless house every day. There is filtered water throughout the house & 2 huge ice chests which was nice since we didn't have to buy bottled water or ice. The fridge was big enough to fit our 500+ beers & other necessities :) We can't wait to do a reunion and come back to stay at Villa Tranquila!

My family used Villa Tranquila as the base for a family reunion. While it could not house all of us, it provided a place to gather for meals as well as space to spread out.

House was amazing. Rooms were so spacious and always clean. STAFF WAS INCREDIBLE! can't say enough about all of them always willing to help out and make our stay so comfortable. If something needed fixing it was done immediately. They drove us around a bit and would alwYs check to see what they could help with. So friendly too. Pool was really nice and relaxing. Outdoor bbq was nice and the dining area was spacious for our big group of 30 people. Only downside was a bit of a walk or short drive to the beach and about 15 mins to town but the club house within the community had awesome food and great swimming and services.
Todd E. April 14, 2015
Best way to describe our stay was true paradise!!!
We had a family reunion and wedding at the Villa. The place is huge sleeping all 23 with plenty of extra room. We cooked and partied day and night. The cleaning service and owners assistance was first rate. We rented a Kariokee machine which made all the difference. If you travel with a group its vacationing on the cheap in style. House Pool, beaches, and beach club with pool amazing. Some of the most beauitful beaches I've ever seen and we've been all over the world. Security is excellent as no one from outside enters the compound without being on a list. Town is about 15 min. But really didn't need it. Our host gene was available 24/7 to help in any way. He is on premisis. He really pays attention to detail. Wedding was breathtaking and was prepared with Danielle. We had to do almost no preparation and it turned out great!!! I know this review sounds too good to be true but this place is worth every penny. We're returing that's a fact.. Thanks againg for everything....

16 friends gathered at Villa Tranquilla for a week of fun and relaxation. The property is exceptional. Expertly maintained and furnished. The property manager, Eugene, anticipates any need and is always available to assist, even running us into town if needed. We enjoyed many days around the pool or down on one of the nearby beaches. Stay in Tamarindo arranged a cook and excursions for us. Golf carts are also available to rent and highly recommended. It is a fabulous vacation spot!

Thank you - my family had a perfect stay!

Our family spent a weekend at Villa Tranquila, located in Hacienda Pinilla, and the experience was excellent. It is a large house, with 8 large suites, large social áreas and all facilities very well equiped.

We stayed at Villa Tranquilla from Dec 23. 2017-Jan 6, 2018 and had an amazing time. This was our 2nd time at the Hacienda Panialla which we chose because of the golf and beach club. The house did not disappoint! It was a pleasant surprise to arrive on the 23rd and see the updates that Eugene and Sari had done to the house. It was freshly painted and the brand new linens and towels were a treat!! The house was perfect for our family of 12. We all had our own space when it was needed! Eugene and Sari were wonderful. They were available to answer any questions we had during our 2 week stay and even arranged to have people come to the house for massages. Everyone loved that!! My mom was struggling to get into the beds at night and when my dad mentioned that to Eugene...he showed up the very next day with stools for all of the bedrooms. It was really nice to have housekeeping every day. She did a wonderful job and stayed out of everyone's way. The house is 2 minutes away from the club house so it made it very easy to access the golf course. It is a little secluded, but not such a bad thing when you want some peace and quiet!! The pool was beautiful. It helped that we backed onto the 18th hole and the landscape is amazing at the back of the house!! The house also has access to a private beach. The kids loved that beach!! Along with the house we had access to the Beach Club. We spent about 3 days there. It was nice because it had a restaurant so we could grab a quick lunch if needed. It cost $10/day/person but they deduct that cost from any food or bar tab you run up.
We used several chefs during our stay. Pascal and Camille (Pascam Private Chef) and Chef Frank from Belly Fedbetter were amazing. They took care of everything for us each night they were there. The food was amazing!!!
Overall, the house exceeded our expectations. Everyone had a fantastic time! It was tough to leave such a beautiful place!!

Villa Tranquila was the destination for our family retreat that included 17 people. The 3 acre Villa located right on the golf course fairway was perfect. Everyone was very pleased with the beautiful property and accommodations. The 8 spacious and comfortable bedrooms included their own bathroom, sitting room, beach towels, bathrobes and mini-refrigerator. All the rooms in the house were cleaned daily, including the pool and the BBQ grill - wonderful. Our hats off to Eugene, the property manager, and Sary for taking such good care of us. They helped with grocery shopping the first day and made several suggestions on things to do in the area. We especially liked going to the National Park which included horseback riding, tubing down a river, a zipline through the canyon and mud painting at the hot springs - quite an adventure! Lunch was also included. A short drive from the villa, is an amazing private beach with shade, beach chairs and gorgeous water. There are tide pools to explore and a bay with sand and surf and plenty of sea shells. It truly is a beautiful beach, especially at sunset. The property also comes with 4 bikes that you can ride for miles on the golf cart paths. There are so many things to do and we took advantage of as many as possible in order to make our vacation truly memorable. It is our pleasure to recommend Villa Tranquila and hopefully we can make a return visit in the future.

This was fantastic. The StayinTamarindo team was so helpful, we needed an extra night and they found a wonderful place close to our week long stay
Janette G. July 26, 2016
We had a group of 18 stay at Villa Tranquilla. It has 8 very large bedrooms each with a large sitting area, and very large bathroom, and some kind of patio or balcony to enjoy the outside. Guest robes, beach towels, mini fridges and microwaves? were provided in each room as well. Each of the rooms in the house have a hotel type lock on it which can be good, but also a bit of a nuisance. Magnetic keys had to be with you at all times. The kitchen has 3 large tables and ample fridge and freezer area for food. The actual kitchen prep area is a little small and cramped for the number of people staying there, but we were told that there are plans to update the kitchen in the future. The pool is beautiful and there are a number of pool blow ups to use. There is a patio with a BBQ and fans to keep you cool. There is no fence around the pool, so we had to watch the small children very carefully. There are also boogie boards to use at the ocean. Each day we had someone that came and freshened up the bedrooms and the pool was cleaned each morning. We had access to a private beach that was beautiful and very secluded. There are lounge chairs and tables with umbrella's at the beach. We also enjoyed and used the beach club at Hacienda Pinilla. The pool is large and right above the beach. The food at the restaurant was very good The location is about 15 minutes from Tamerindo. There is some zip lining close by, but the main attractions for the volcano and adventure parks are 2+ hours away. It's doable but makes for a very long day. However, you are right where the main ocean surfing area is. The house manager was very helpful and did a great job of providing service when we need to find a medical clinic. We had a great time at this home. It is in a gated and in a very safe area, and the home is very secluded. It is on a golf course, but we rarely saw anyone golfing.

We rented the Villa for our wedding week and could not have been more pleased with the experience. Eugene, the house manager, was extremely helpful and everyone at Stay in Tamarindo was easy to work with. We had 23 guests at the Villa and each & every one enjoyed their stay! Our wedding ceremony and reception took place in the backyard---what a beautiful setting! We can't wait to plan our "reunion" visit!
Ryan P. February 17, 2017
This place exceeded expectations. We were skeptical being "off" the beach and out of town but it ended up being perfect because we had everything to ourselves. We had 8 couples so each had their own suite and never got in each other's way.
We decided to rent golf carts instead of cars and it was definitely the right choice. They were perfect for some people hitting the beach club or cruising down to Playa Lagosta which was completely private and gorgeous. The Beach Club is a great stop and we basically had that place to ourselves as well. Great food and drinks there.
We booked a private chef for a few meals and it was amazing.
The Stay in Tamarindo crew and our host were all great.
We will definitely be going back and probably won't change a thing.

The property was outstanding, everything was as promised and more, the suites are spacious and very clean.
We will return soon to enjoy the property, the pacefull and nature arround.
