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.
