Tamarindo house description

Casa Leo Loco Unique among the vacation homes in Tamarindo, Casa Leo loco achieves a perfect balance of a beautiful, exotic setting with the amenities and comforts of home. The sights, sounds and scents at Casa Leo Loco deliver all the beauty that nature has to offer in Tamarindo. Wake up in paradise to the panoramic (220 degree) view of the beaches, forests, and harbor. Watch the parrots, mot-mots, orioles, hummingbirds and 50 other species of magnificent birds as they fly by or stop to chat in the expansive terraces and gardens. Surfers and boats bob in the waves below. Observe iguanas sunning in the trees nearby. Track Tamarindo’s howler monkeys as they progress through the neighboring forests. Delight in the fragrant Plumeria scents wafting on the gentle breezes.

At night, from Casa Leo Loco’s many terraces enjoy the twinkling lights of the town below or the fantastic show put on by the stars above. Casa Leo Loco is a secluded, gated Mediterranean-style villa in the picturesque town of Tamarindo (see video overview on YouTube ). You will see that there are spectacular ocean views from every room in the house, in minute you walk in the front door. You are immediately drawn to the largest private infinity pool in Tamarindo, surrounded on three sides by the extensive, beautifully landscaped gardens. Generous common areas allow dining al fresco, entertaining and socializing with your guests as well as relaxing in solitude in private nooks. The spacious house is open to the ocean breezes and has ocean views from every room. Tropical and Balinese decor give you a sense of the exotic yet daily maid service makes it better than home. In the five air-conditioned bedrooms, a total of up to nine guests can be accommodated. A large flat screen TV, cable, telephone service and free internet access let you stay connected to those who wish they could join you. Stroll the half-mile down the hill to the French bakery and the beach. Spend the day shopping, deep-sea fishing or touring Costa Rica’s famous cloud forests, volcanoes and parks, then return home to a stunning sunset over the ocean. Grill your catch of the day at home or dine in one of Taramindo’s excellent restaurants before settling in for the night listening to the surf in comfort and at peace. Due to the open nature of the pool area, children under 5 or non-swimming children are not permitted.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2005

                      About the owner: Casa Leo Loco is owned by six brothers and sisters with a large extended family of teenage and twenty something children. Some of us had been coming to Costa Rica since 1993 and found it to be a wonderful place for snorkeling, exploring, adventure sports, viewing wildlife, and just plain resting and relaxing. We purchased Casa Leo Loco in 2005 from the German actor who built it and use it ourselves and also rent it. Pictures don't do it justice. The climate is wonderful (even better than Florida and Hawaii) so it truly indoor/outdoor living at its best. The first thing we do when we arrive is open all the doors to the main house and jump in the pool. To be honest that is as far as some of us get for the entire stay. We watch the birds, monkeys, iguanas, boats bobbing in the harbor and surfers, read and visit. Others of us take advantage of all that Tamarindo and surrounding area have to offer: beach combing, zip lines, canopy tours, deep sea fishing, snorkeling, diving, estuary tours, horseback riding, and the world class national parks Monteverde and Arenal to name two). No matter what your is your ideal way to vacation, we hope you get a chance to come enjoy Casa Leo Loco. If you are like most of other visitors it will be one of your best trips.

                      Why the Owner Chose Tamarindo:
                      Beach front properties often have a lot of foot traffic in your front yard. Casa Leo Loco is close to everything but very private. The huge terraces and indoor/outdoor design allow to truly enjoy the climate, sights, sounds and smells of the tropics. A 220 degree view of ocean, town, forests surrounding the property and beautiful landscaping and the largest private pool in Tamarindo on the property sets Casa Leo Loco apart from other nearby vacation rentals.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Every bedroom has an ocean view (and air conditioning). The private balcony off the master suite, courtyard, sunny terraces and covered patios allow everyone in your party to find a quiet spot to read and enjoy the views, separate from the main action, if desired.
