Hacienda Pinilla was once one man’s private Costa Rican paradise – 4,500 acres of lush land and dry tropical forests fringed by some of the most beautiful and pristine beaches on this country’s Gold Coast. Located in Guanacaste near the popular, laid-back beach surf town of Tamarindo, this former cattle ranch has now been transformed into Costa Rica’s largest and most exclusive beach and golf community. Hacienda Pinilla’s homes and villas are more in demand now than ever, offering a unique marriage of authentic Costa Rica experiences and luxury living in a booming real estate market. In fact, Costa Rica’s hottest properties right now are condo developments and gated communities like Hacienda Pinilla, which the Costa Rican College of Engineers and Architects reported in 2015 had grown over 50% in just the past two years.
What makes Hacienda Pinilla so special? For starters, it is home to six distinct communities and today is Guanacaste’s most sought-after beachfront community. You can relax with friends and family on glorious, unspoiled beaches, certified Blue Flag for their high environmental quality. These three world-class beaches, including Playa Avellanas and its famous surf break Little Hawaii, are located directly in front of Pinilla’s Beach Club. Playa Avellanas and Playa Langosta are consistently ranked among the best beaches in Central America.
Here you can play golf on Hacienda Pinilla’s championship 18-hole course that stretches out to beach bluffs high above the sea, knowing that the course and everything in this luxurious community has earned the Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary certificate for its deep environmental commitment. Here you can ride horseback and go mountain biking on the many scenic trails.
Situated on three miles of breathtaking Pacific coastline, Hacienda Pinilla has a long-standing reputation for eco-friendly practices and sustainable growth, including reforestation initiatives, and offers a seemingly endless array of outdoor activities including an opportunity to witness a working cattle farm, a legacy from its previous owner. Inside the gated community, you can enjoy the Wellness Center before savoring the delicious menus of the Beach Club or one of the five restaurants at Central America’s only JW Marriott, which shares the property.
Hacienda Pinilla’s fine amenities and exceptional location are an irresistible draw for visitors, but many of them are enticed to stay longer. Much longer. The Hacienda Club is Costa Rica’s only luxury Private Resident Club offering fractional ownership in lavish Colonial-style villas. Stay longer still. More homes and villa have been completed or are under construction at the resort in the last year than in the previous ten years combined.
“It’s the lifestyle here that sets Pinilla apart,” says Deborah Landon, one of Hacienda Pinilla’s real estate advisors. “Here, wide open spaces, wildlife, natural amenities and luxury homes blend together to offer both residents and guests an authentic Costa Rican experience.”
Costa Rica’s real estate prices and property sales are rising once again mostly due to the growing number of North Americans and Europeans who have chosen this Central American jewel as their ideal destination for vacation and retirement living. Guanacaste is one of the most popular destinations in Costa Rica for tourism, and gated communities like Hacienda Pinilla are particularly in demand. Sales and construction at the resort have soared recently. Twelve new custom homes were built in the last year, with 15 new properties slated for construction in the next 6 months. When these elegant new homes are completed, Hacienda Pinilla will welcome the owners of 27-30 exquisite residences – in two years, a 200% increase over the previous 10-year period. It’s the community’s biggest construction boom since its launch 15 years ago.
When you invest in Hacienda Pinilla, you’re investing in a lifestyle that’s unique. The luxury of your home or villa and the unsurpassed resort amenities are matched only by the exquisite natural surroundings: tropical dry forest, where monkeys hoot and parrots squawk, stunning land, where deer, white-faced coatis and large iguanas roam. Beaches that stretch as far as the eye can see. All this and more are waiting, just outside your door in Guanacaste and Hacienda Pinilla.
