“Amazing place all around!”
Reviewed June 23, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I was looking for a house to host all of my family and close friends within a private environment yet spacious and comfortable for all of them. If this rings a bell for you, look no more. You found it! Villa Tranquila is beautiful from any angle. My family, friends and I had an amazing time. We enjoyed the open space within the living room and kitchen (it is BIG!), pool area, gardens around the back and front yard and the 8 bedrooms. There is no much you can ask (or not get) from bedrooms with living rooms, balcony and complete bathroom in all of them. The house is equipped with any item you could possibly need, which means you just need to worry of getting there, get everyone a bed, get enough food to stuff the pantry area, drinks to fill the refrigerators and you are all set. Any other thing you may need, please make sure to contact Eugene – the general manager – and I am quite sure he will point you in the right direction. He certainly adds value to your vacation as he’s always willing to help and just one phone call away. We enjoyed so much our stay that we are coming back next year.
100% recommended!

“Exceeded Expectations”
Reviewed June 15, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

The moment I pulled into the entrance of Villa Tranquila this review began writing itself. Typically, pictures and video clips aren't able to capture the vastness of a villa and its bedrooms. Each bedroom, king and double Queen, was its own apartment with a full bathroom, living area and deck with comfortable seating and a pool or garden/jungle view. Bathrooms had super hot showers with good pressure. Irons & ironing boards in each suite. Spoiled. I'm from New York and have seen many apartments smaller than these suites. The ice buckets, mini fridges and separate room keys gave Villa Tranquila the feel of a resort but still the seclusion of a private home. Which is a perfect segue to the lack of neighbors. My group of 17 partied loudly through the night, inside and poolside without a single peep from anyone. No visible neighbors. It was perfect. Villa Tranquila is SUPER ideal for large groups. Aside from the bedrooms, there is also comfy seating and a bar in the upstairs common area. I felt like Sam from Cheers. Different sized glasses overhead, plenty counter space, ice machine and mini fridge. We took turns plugging our iPads into the sound system and rocked out on the wifi to Spotify playlists. Serving food in the kitchen was actually fun too. The 2 large fridge/freezers held all the groceries we needed for the week and some. The counter space held the cooked food and 17 of us sat family style.
The pool and backyard were comfy, ideal for grilling and aesthetically pleasing.
Everything I just explained, we discovered within our first few hours on site. It was later in the trip that we realized the property's General Manager Eugene, and his wife Sary, were Godsends. True angels. There wasn't much that we needed but everything that we wanted and could have thought we wanted was available. I don't want to give too many examples just in case a potential guests decides to take advantage of my new friends' decency- but here is one: I arranged transportation to take 12 of us into Tamarindo on our last night. The shuttle did not show (it was around 11pm). I hesitantly called Eugene for a number to a reliable taxi. He gave me a response like "reliable taxi? Please...I'll take you guys." And made two trips to drive us 15 minutes into town for as much of a non-emergency as could be.
This was my 2nd trip to Costa Rica and I also have planned trips for clients to visit. It is my sole intention going forward to stay and suggest that folks stay in Villa Tranquila. Our stay in the house was nothing short of amazing. Perfect. Can't wait to return.

“Garden of Eden”
Reviewed April 6, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We had 19 people who were willing to journey with Houston's First Baptist Church to serve the people of Costa Rica. In order for that to happen we needed to find housing. I cannot tell you exactly how we found this beautiful place, but knew that Lord directed us. Villa Tranquila was more than just a place to stay it was a blessing. Words are not adequate in regards to begin to explain the beauty. The whole experience was exceptional from housing cleaning all the way to gardening. Every person takes pride in maintaining the home. They do a real good job making this house a home. I want to personally thank Eugene for doing such an amazing job serving us. We will definitely be coming back again next year.

“Beautiful”
Reviewed April 1, 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We traveled with fourteen family members. We were in Beautiful Costa Rica for two weeks for my fathers 75th Birthday. We arrived late at night and the house manager stayed up and waited for us to arrive, we were very pleased. The house was very big and spacious, and the pool was lovely and on a golf course. The Gardener, Housekeeper , and house manager where there everyday to make sure all our need were met and that we were pleased with our stay. the manager would help us with anything and went out of his way to help us. The house was very clean and maintained. I would recommend this place to anybody, we had an amazing experience, and Costa Rica was beautiful!!!

“You will love it!”
Reviewed March 31, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We had a group of 14 friends who recently traveled to Costa Rica, and rented this amazing place! Not only is the house beautiful, and close to all amenities, it has a great hands-on property manager who is there to assist with anything you will need during your stay! That was an unexpected bonus. It is a private home, in a private community of Hacienda Pinella, where you have access to a great beach club, the JW Marriott and a wonderful private beach! What a find! You will love it!

“An Amazing Costa Rican Get-Away”
Reviewed February 21, 2015 for a stay in October 2014

Villa Tranquila lives up to its name. Having spent 7 days & 7 nights at this 13,000 square foot Villa, I can truly say that we found peace, tranquility and paradise!

Situated about 3 minutes from the ocean and extremely close to other amenities, here is how we spent a typical day: In the mornings, I played 18 holes of golf at the top-tier golf course – Hacienda Pinilla – on which the Villa is located adjacent to the 18th green. My wife slept in until the soft rays of the sun pierced the sheers and either the birds or the wind in the palm trees sang her a morning song :) We then worked out at the gym (within walking distance) containing cardio machines, free weights and yoga mats.

As soon as we could gather our gear, we headed to the beaches. Our favorite beach was Playa Langosta, a fairly private beach just 3 minutes from the villa where the ocean scenery, turquoise waves and luscious vegetation are simply breath-taking. I took a picture of the beach as my iPhone home screen. The beach has wood shade huts and enough lounge chairs for every member of the house party. There are a number of other beaches within a 10 minute drive, including a multi-million dollar beach club for those staying within the Hacienda Pinilla campus. The food is divine!

In the late afternoon, we would take in a massage, shop in Tamarindo, or remain at the Villa house to enjoy our own private swimming pool.

Prior to our arrival, the staff provided a list of activities, with details about activities, locations, costs and allotted time requirements, etc. These included: horseback riding, zip-lines, Jet Ski & ATV rental, snorkeling, surfing lessons, tennis, golf, bird watching, site-seeing to volcanoes, jungle slides, mountain biking, hiking and our favorite pastime – dining out.

At night, we would walk on the beach, watch the sun set and then enjoy a meal at our favorite restaurant, Patagonia, which is located in Tamarindo, and features the best surf and turf from local catch of the day.

We felt safe and comfortable all week long. Each room is furnished with its own air-conditioning, ceiling fans, coffee machine, large showers, valuables safe and a private balcony. Fresh beach towels were prodded each day. The rooms are spacious and the Villa boasts 8 large suites which can sleep 24 comfortably in their own soft bed. The maid service was the best and completely worked around our schedule. The staff is professional, bi-lingual and super friendly.

It is not a question of IF we come back, but WHEN
