CPI - Stunning 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home with infinty pool, overlooking Tamarindo Bay. A small gem with a grand view! Casa Pipilacha is a luxury Moroccan style villa designed like an artwork by Abraham Valenzuela, one of the most acclaimed architects of Costa Rica. It is located on an amazing and tranquil piece of land near the top of the hill overlooking Playa Tamarindo and serves as a quiet hideaway, yet close to the beach, shopping, dining and entertainment amenities of Tamarindo. All areas of the house offer breathtaking panoramic views of Playa Tamarindo and Playa Langosta and the endless ocean.
In front of the living room and the large roofed terrace sits a huge "infinity" pool with two smaller sun terraces ? all with a fantastic 180 degree view. Plunge in the pool, relax on the terrace and enjoy the picture-perfect sunsets from this magnificent lookout!
The kitchen is fully equipped and offers all amenities even for the passionate cook. A gas BBQ is also available. You can choose between two dining areas: outside on the terrace or inside the living room. The entire house is screened in and opens onto the terrace.
The master suite features a king size bed. The second bedroom comes with a queen size bed. Both bedrooms have panoramic windows. The whole house is fully air-conditioned.

A guest from Houston, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2016 Our first time in Costa Rica and renting this incredible house made our vacation, relaxing, comfortable and we didn't want to leave! The house has everything you need to live lavishly and comfortably, including a beautiful view! We loved it and will for sure return!
A guest from Austin, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2016 The house was beautiful. We have a 15 month old and everything was just perfect. From the comfort to the sheer luxury of the home. It is a tricky hill to get up, lots of pot holes, but actually on our second to last day they came through with a steam roller and laid some new dirt which helped tremendously. Other than that, 10 out of 10.
Clinton C. from Dawsonville, GA recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in April, 2016 This vacation rental far exceeded my family's expectations!
Property Manager Response: Response from Tropical Vacations Clinton - we are so glad you had a great time. Pipilacha is an amazingly special place and we're so happy you enjoyed it. Come back again soon!
A guest from Newport News, VA recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in January, 2016 We loved the house! Very well furnished with the best view for two couples. Will be back! The town is full of surf, bars, and restaurants.
Property Manager Response: Response from Tropical Vacations So glad you had a great time. come visit us again
Steven H. from Bakersfield, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in January, 2016 Beautiful home with a magnificent view. Home has great craftsmanship and decor, very detailed and custom. Quality amenities, from kitchen to bedrooms to patio. Great floor plan, easily accommodating two separate couples and ensuring privacy. Just an outstanding property! Be aware gardener/pool service (Miguel) and cleaning (Ethel) do come early in morning, yet are quiet and non intrusive. Also, homes above and below are large and have potential to produce significant noise. Overall, probably the BEST smaller residence in Tamarindo. Can't wait to return, true Pura Vida.
Property Manager Response: Response from Tropical Vacations We are so glad you had a great time at Pipilacha and enjoyed the amazing house and property. Thank you for the review and we hope to see you again soon.
Carla H. from Saskatoon, Sask. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2015 The house is beautiful and the pool and view are amazing! We enjoyed it so very very much! We spent several days just up at the house making the most of our time there. Definitely worth the price and I would stay there again. Only negative was we wanted to Barbeque and on day one the tank ran out and a full week stay and no refill ever materialized though we requested one right away and even followed up a few days later with management. It never arrived. We had all kinds of groceries purchased too. Using the inside cooktop was ok but not ideal as there is no venting and the house would fill with smoke at high temps. Otherwise it was perfect.
Patricia V. from Massapequa, NY recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2015 My family and I (myself, my husband, 2 adult children and my son's girlfriend) just spent an unforgettable week at Casa Pipilacha from 7/26 to 8/1. The house and property were absolutely gorgeous and immaculately maintained. The pictures on the website were very accurate although the house is much more stunning in person. My husband, who is a contractor himself, was thoroughly impressed at the design and details of the house. We were very comfortable staying there with the kids who rotated sleeping on the cot in the smaller bedroom. It's also perfect for 2 couples each having their own bedroom and bathroom. The pool was a dream to come home to with the stunning view - we truly didn't feel the need to leave the house although we did do many activities that CR has to offer. We enjoyed mornings and nights in the pool or on the lounges just enjoying the view of Tamarindo below us - the same view can be enjoyed from most of the house especially the master bedroom and master bath suite. The kitchen was a delight for our chefs who prepared daily meals for us and the occasional lunch we prepared for ourselves. All of the staff at RPM were wonderful to work with. Would not hesitate to stay at this property again as everyone fell in love with it - Pura Vida!!! One note: the hill up to the house is very steep - we did walk down on many occasions and only once up and back to the house - my advice, make friends with a cabbie - get their cell number, tip them good so that whenever you call they will come. The walk up is very tough - we will never attempt that again.
Janet & Michael M. from Miami, Florida recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in June, 2015 Words can not describe how incredibly beautiful this location is. My family and I stayed for 9 days and 8 nights and we did not want to leave. The views are spectacular no matter where you are in the house. It was bliss to sit outside and drink coffee or watch the sunset with a glass of wine. Ethel and Miguel who keep up cads Pipalachia are awesome. We are coming back next year and are getting ready to reserve the house. My son left to college right after we came back and this place and trip will forever be special to him.
Property Manager Response: Response from Tropical Vacations Thank you for the great review and we wish your son the very best in College. Maybe every year he needs to come back to relax :)
A guest from Noank, CT recommends this property. Stayed for 13 days in February, 2015 Pipilacha is located on a hill with the best views in the area. It is safe and lovely. Please note there is a lot of construction being done nearby though and it begins early (6 AM) and continues through the early evening. The house itself though is beautiful, fantastic views and comes well stocked with everything you could possibly need for your stay. We would stay here again and highly recommend to anyone
Property Manager Response: Response from Tropical Vacations Thanks for the great review. The construction noise is coming to an end shortly and hope you will come back again soon.
Evan and Christine J. from Columbus, Georgia recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in November, 2014 We were sooo happy to see such a fabulous home!!! Every detail was upscale and way more than we expected!!! The road getting there was a bit bumpy but we understand that's how it is there.The pool was wonderful!!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Tropical Vacations So glad you had a great time. The road has been re-graded and is much better now. We hope you will come back and visit us again.
Jeffrey K. from East Orleans, MA recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in February, 2014 This property met all our expectations, and the company was responsive to our concerns which were few. Great location with great views, infinity pool. The level of finish, the furnishings, kitchen, etc were high quality, with every expectation of our own home. The home was air conditioned, necessary mainly in the bedrooms. A vehicle is not a must, but very helpful as the access road is steep.
Property Manager Response: Response from Tropical Vacations Thanks for the great review and comments about this amazing home. We are glad you had a great time. Please come and visit us again!
Beautifully designed home in not so beautiful location
A guest from Palo Alto, CA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2013 The house is very nicely done but getting to it is quite a challenge (specially on foot and in 30°C heat and for 60+ old people). At the arrival we couldn't open the door (wrong keys were given to us) and then we were told that the front door doesn't lock at all... We were expecting quiet time on the top of the hill...but the neighbors were playing laud music and having laud parties (almost impossible to enjoy the beautiful patio with the view)
Brian J E. from Gibsonia, PA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in December, 2013 Was a perfect location for our family of four in a great location overlooking Tamarindo and the Pacific. Amenities were very nice, pool was great size.Couple small issues included - sound system did not work and called them and no one fixed the problem. Front door was out of order so we had to enter in the side door.
Property Manager Response: Response from Tropical Vacations Thanks for the note. We were not able to fix the stereo system during your stay, but it is working now. The front door has been worked on as well. These are amazingly beautiful hand-crafted German style doors and we had to wait for the right carpenter to be available to fix them! Hope you are able to come and stay again.
A guest from Bowie, MD recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2013 We had the pleasure of staying at Casa Pipilacha for a full week in November. The house is absolutely stunning! The attention to detail in every part of the property is amazing. We were part of a group that rented several houses in the area and everyone agreed that Casa Pipilacha was the most beautiful property of them all. The size of the space would be perfect for a small family or two couples. The two of us found the space to be perfect for just us as well. We will most certainly be back!
Melissa K. from Matawan, NJ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in November, 2013 Casa Pipilacha is everything you could hope for and more! The perfect luxury retreat hidden high above the ocean. Make sure you have a 4x4 vehicle, as the road to the house is a little tricky... Once you arrive, however,you will be in paradise! You will not want to leave, even to go to the beach!
Darren Lee J. from Charlotte, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in October, 2013 Everything was perfect! The house was in perfect order, everything you need is there and in the usual place, no hunting for items and it was spotless. Pickup pkg. was quick and professional! Communication was superb from RPM regardless of who I talked with. They all knew what was going on with the property. Had a minor issue (my fault - I locked myself out of the master bedroom) called RPM and they had Security up to Pipilacha in no time to help me out! Superb Property Management and incredible property! I will be back! The only thing I would suggest is a map with directions on how to get there from the RPM office or main road. Also, make sure you have an all wheel drive or 4 wheel drive vehicle! Most of the road up to the property is steep and not paved and if wet, It can be slippery!Darren JoyCharlotte, NC / Pasadena CA
Nancy R. from Chestermere, Alberta recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2013 Best rental house ever. Pictures do not do it justice. Very clean and modern. Pool is fabulous and the view is stunning. Would stay there again.
Property Manager Response: Response from Tropical Vacations Thanks for the great review and glad you had a wonderful time!!
Robin H. from Beaufort, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 26 days in January, 2013 Casa Pipilacha is THE perfect place! A very private back porch and pool. Amazing views. Beautiful home. EVERYTHING you need for a great escape! Etal the cleaning lady is wonderful,unobtrusive and does a great job. RPM the rental agency is excellent, quick to solve any problem, accomodate any need and very professional.I hesitate to share this due to availability. Been going there every year for 6 yrs and we love it!
Property Manager Response: Response from Tropical Vacations It is truly a special place. Thanks for your review and see you next year!
A guest from Danville, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in January, 2013 Casa Pipilacha is perfect for two couples. It's comfortable and has great views. Although it was hot, the air conditioning kept the bedrooms (and living area) cool. We really enjoyed the terrace and the pool where we spent most of our time. Although there was no Wi-Fi, the management company hopes to resolve that issue. We're very familiar with Tamarindo, having rented a villa down the hill from Casa Pipilacha. Getting up and down the hill (in a 4X4) is challenging. We never attempted walking!!
Property Manager Response: Response from Tropical Vacations Thanks for the review and feedback. We were able to get the Wi-Fi fixed and improved the signal strength throughout the house. Hope to see you again!
A guest from Minneapolis, MN recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in September, 2009 Seriously the best vacation we have had in a long time. The house was breathtaking. I would recommend this to anyone.
Dawn L. from Berkeley Heights, NJ recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in July, 2009 I'm coming back!!! Loved it so much I didn't want to leave. The cats were hysterical and excellent hosts! Pura vida!! xoxo Dawn LaCosta And family
NIcole C. from Wilmington, NC recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2009 Casa Pipilacha was awesome. The view was incredible, and location was close to anything we needed. Would definitely stay again.
BEAUTIFUL, PRIVATE, UNIQUE WITH PHENOMENAL POOL & VIEW!
Reviewed by: Mary M. recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in February, 2009 Was probably our best stay ever in the world. Very private and wonderful villa. Euro-Style. Pool is exceptional and you can not beat the view. Luxury stay and perfect for animal people as their are 2 friendly house cats that come and go. Very secure gated villa but you will need to taxi up steep hill or rent a car...but its so very much worth it. Only $6 for Taxi to village.
Reviewed by: Robin H. recommends this property. Stayed for 21 days in January, 2009 This was our second stay at Pipilacha. The house was even beter than the first trip, new patio chaise lounge was very nice! Also enjoyed the new outdoor grill. The pool and the views are magnificent! A very nice and comfortable home! We hope to return again.Thanks. Robin & Matt Held 2009
