We enjoyed our time at Casa Kenkai. The house is clean and spacious and has everything you need. Elsa was a fantastic host.

When I first booked it was great communication between the host and I. Before I traveled the host was able to provide everything I needed upon arrival. My friends and I enjoyed every part of the home. The home was clean, nice, spacious, and had everything we needed. I can’t thank the host enough for providing everything before and during our stay. When traveling internationally this makes everything so much BETTER. I would recommend to anyone and stay again in the future!!!

Adoramos o período que passamos em Hacienda Pinilla, Reserva de Golf. A casa é super bem localizada e está de acordo com as fotos. Tem uma vista maravilhosa para o campo de golf. Os quartos são bons, o espaço é confortável. A área externa também é muito gostosa. Recomendo esta estadia e voltaria com certeza para lá! Nossas férias na Costa Rica foram maravilhosas!! PURA VIDA!!!

We had a wonderful time at this beautiful villa in the Hacienda Pinilla resort. The home was modern, clean with large open spaces and sliding doors opening to a beautiful pool area. Great home to stay in during the pandemic in case members of the party need to isolate; and the large windows and doors allow for ample air movement. All four rooms are private, well sized and comfortable. The pool was wonderful and we all thoroughly enjoyed daily swims. Kitchen is well appointed; generous laundry room. We could hear howler monkeys and beautiful bird song throughout the day. We never felt unsafe ( we were alarmed by some reviews on other VRBO stand-alone properties mentioning night time burglaries, which is why we selected this particular property.) Security is excellent. Tamarindo has wonderful restaurants; we particularly enjoyed Dragonfly and Green Papaya, but the home and kitchen is so lovely that we spent several days just enjoying the home and resort. Car recommended. Buy the local mosquito repellant; according to the experienced local guides, the local repellant is much more effective. Highly recommend! Thanks for the great memories!

What a trip!! Just returned from our 5 days at Casa Kenkai. We had 2 couples here, each in their own en-suite, with enough room to be together and have room to spread out. The house was beautiful, with everything we needed and more. The outdoor pool area with fans kept us cool while we ate meals outside together. The grill was great to have for lunchtime while we hung out in the pool. I can’t speak highly enough about the crew we were lucky to have host us in Costa Rica. Elsa and Miriam thank you for everything! Pura Vida

We had a wonderful stay at Casa Kenkai. The house was beautiful, clean and exactly as described. Kitchen was well appointed, all appliances in good working condition. Internet was fast and reliable. Ample space for two families to have privacy. Cleaner and pool maintenance person were efficient and thorough. Our concierge/guest manager, Elsa Verges, was extremely helpful and available for any questions we had. She provided helpful information on day trips, road hazards etc. We felt safe, and were able to enjoy the larger Hacienda Pinilla resort as well as the surrounding Tamarindo area without any issues. We would highly recommend this home and hope to return soon!

Elsa is a wonderful host. She stopped by to introduce herself and was always available to answer my many questions. The house was very clean and well equipped. The neighborhood is peaceful. I highly recommend staying here.

Highly recommend if you love to golf and want to feel safe in a secure restricted resort this is a great stay for it! Check in and out was extremely easy, affordable, access to the jw Marriott that has beach access, at the time of purchase the rep sent a list of activities we can purchase that had pick up service. Only con is the drive to the entrance it’s pretty rough, that’s it. The house was like a resort! It was beautiful, clean, appliances easy to use, spacious! 10/10 highly recommend. Elsa was soooooo helpful, and responsive!

We stayed there for five weeks and would love to go back. Had a delightful time and the house worked well for our needs. It was very quiet and peaceful.

We loved our stay at Casa Kenkai in Hacienda Pinilla. The house was lovely, clean and in good working order - it comfortably met the needs of our group - very peaceful and private. Elsa, the concierge was super helpful both prior to and during our visit, arranging day trips, dinner reservations, covid tests, etc. Hacienda Pinilla has so much to offer - gorgeous beaches, tennis/pickleball, horseback riding, biking, golf, beach club..... Overall, it was a great time and just what we all needed.

We had an amazing stay at Casa Kenkai. Elsa helped enormously before our arrival and while we were there. The house was beautiful, well maintained and was great for our group of 6 people. We would definitely use the company and this property again. Thanks!
- Johanne, Posted: 02/20/2022
Very comfortable, everything you need is there! You will enjoy the quiet surroundings with the golf course right behind the house so no noisy neighbors! You can access Playa Avellanas directly from the compound with a short car ride following directions for Club the playa. A must! Thanks again! Johanne and all

We enjoyed our stay so much! Elsa was amazing. We had a rough start to our trip and she was communicating with me very step of the way to make sure things went smoothly. The house is better than pictured. The pool feels great and the chef services was perfect.

Beautiful modern house in hacienda pinilla with access to beach club, surfing, tennis and golf course. Elsa was a wonderful host who looked after all our needs!

Un lugar moderno, con todas las amenidades, cuartos espaciosos, equipada totalmente y con todo prácticamente nuevo !!!
- Arie, Posted: 12/02/2021
We had a wonderful stay at Casa Kenkai. The House was impecable and so was the service with Stay in Tamarindo. The house is very spacious and the pool is stunning! With direct view to the golf course is the perfect spot to relax at night or when you get tired of the beach. Hacienda Pinilla is my favorite place in Guanacaste, is beautiful, clean, and you can have golf, surf, jugging, trail running, mountain bike and several different beaches just in one plase. Looking forward to visiting again soon! Thanks!

Brand new house, beautiful view to the golf course, good swimming pool, easy access to three beaches in Hacienda Pinilla. The house has all the amenities one needs for a couple of days, and sufficient beds for up to 8 people (we were just 4, so more than plenty of room). Only one TV (ok, who needs one, you're here on holiday). Parking in the garage for up to 2 vehicles). Communication with Elsa (agent) was excellent.
