About Nicole & Brian Leonard

We are a family of four that resides in California. I am an ER nurse and my husband is a program manager. We have two young kids and wanted a place to call our own in this beautiful part of the world. Maybe some day we can retire here, but for now we will settle with visiting whenever we can.

Nicole & Brian Leonard purchased this condo in 2013

Why Nicole & Brian Leonard chose Playa Langosta

We first visited Playa Langosta in early 2013. We absolutely fell in love with the area. We love that Langosta is a little more quiet and family friendly, but at the same time you can just walk down the road to Tamarindo if you want a little more liveliness or a night out. This area not only has beautiful beaches but has so much biodiversity. We love all the wildlife we can find all around us. We see beautiful birds, howler monkeys, and iguanas on a regular basis and we also enjoy abundant sea life in the tide pools of Playa Langosta.

What makes this condo unique

We purchased this condo in December 2013. We finished furnishing it in February of 2014. Everything in it is brand new and was professionally decorated with furniture custom made locally. We chose our furnishings with comfort and luxury in mind. We hope to provide you with the best rental experience possible. We have a property manager locally who will see to your needs in a timely manner if any arise.

Guestbook comments from the manager

(Review copied from Trip Advisor Review 4 stars)

Stayed on the 5th floor; really comfortable and super good bed and perfect kitchen layout.

I noticed someone didn't like the location..wrong; the location is great. Yes you have to negotiate some volcanic rock on the way to the big beach at the river. Check out the tide pools in the rocks; bright orange puffer type of fish and neons..gorgeous and lots of fabulous birds.-

The rooms are big and really clean. The pool is perfect, with a great BBQ area and lots of lounge chairs. Tamarindo Vacation Rentals does a fantastic job. The town is a lot of fun.

The only negative is the south view from the balconies(there are 2) faces Naxos condos, which block the beautiful south view towards the river. Literally my only negative.

I am prejudiced, because I love Costa Rica and the Lovely people there.

Room Tip: I liked having a higher room..I was in 56..terrific views

Excellent choice for a small family or two couples

  • 5 of 5

Our party of four stayed at Peninsula #56 over spring break. The reservation and logistics of our stay were seamless. Nicole was friendly, very responsive and helpful with inquiries prior to our stay, and the guestbook and instructions in the unit were well thought-out. The unit was clean and comfortable and the view of the ocean from the patio was a nice bonus. Washer and dryer in the unit were super helpful, and used daily. The large Brita water filter unit in the refrigerator was a nice touch, easy to fill, and high capacity. Air conditioning units worked flawlessly. We did not use the pool, since the ocean is so close and we can swim in a pool anywhere. Gatehouse guards (especially Miguel) were very friendly, and we felt completely safe during our stay, both in the condo complex and in all of Langosta. Location was a short (10 minute) walk or 3-minute golf cart ride to Langosta Beach, which we enjoyed far more than the beaches in Tamarindo (a mile away). We preferred the quiet vibe of Langosta over the more touristy Tamarindo, and would recommend this unit to travellers of parties up to 4 people easily.

Beautiful, Comfortable Condo!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was just as it was described! It is on the fifth floor and you can see the water from the balcony! Beautiful view! We saw monkeys off in the distance each morning. The beds are firm but comfortable, and our 14 yo son slept fine on the couch bed. There are three main entrances to the beaches in Playa Langosta, and each is within walking distance of the condo. The beaches are each unique and offer something totally different. The kitchen is well stocked. We cooked breakfast each morning and ate on the patio. The BEST grocery store is the Auto Mercado. We used Natives Way for all of our excursions. We loved Cafe Tico and ate lunch there twice. We also enjoyed pizza on our last night at Pizzeria La Baula. We loved having a washer and dryer in the condo! Thank you Leonard family for sharing your little piece of heaven with us!

Lovely Stay in Tamarindo!

  • 5 of 5

My roommate and I both stayed at the Peninsula for a week. The pictures perfectly represent the condo and it was very clean. The entire complex was well maintained, manicured, and the employees were very friendly. I would recommend brushing up on some basic Spanish as many of them did not speak English. I especially enjoyed that the condo was a little bit outside of Tamarindo so it was quiet and we got to explore many beaches other than the main ones in the city. You may easily walk into Tamarindo, but I was glad we had a car because we went exploring everyday.

I also cannot say enough about the wonderful customer support from the property owner. I asked her many questions about staying in Tamarindo, only a few of which were related to the actual property and she gave me fantastic advice each time. This was a beautiful place and I'm so glad I got to spend time there!

Such a great condo!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Peninsula #56 for only a week but wished it could have been for longer! Enjoyed it so much! There was so much to like- the condo was super clean, spacious, well laid-out, and very comfortable! Great information notebook with great recommendations in the condo that was very helpful! We loved the the walk into town not to far but also far enough to get in a good quality walk in. We ended up walking to town a lot on the beach- a short 5 minute from the condo. Loved the 2-minute walk to"Walter's Fish and Cheese", deli, and restaurant.

Experience Pura Vida Paradise

  • 5 of 5

There is nothing quite like paradise and when you get to stay in a condo such as this, paradise reaches entirely new levels. The two bedroom condo is centrally located with incredible views. Take in all that Cost Rica offers sitting on one of two balconies. Hear the Monkeys playing in the trees while you watch the sun rise. Have a glass of wine or play a family board game while the sun sets behind the trees. Don't feel like exploring one of the many nearby beaches, go down to the amazing pool. Enjoy a swim and cook out in the outdoor community kitchen. Dozens of delicious restaurants and shopping are within walking distance. The condo is beautifully decorated and couldn't be more comfortable. You have all of the comforts of home while enjoying the surf, sand and sites of Costa Rica. Our family surfed, went zip lining, explored numerous beaches, ate amazing food and enjoyed meeting the friendly people of Costa Rica. The landlords provided us with multiple lists of activities, restaurants and sites. The condo is located in a gated secure building with dedicated parking. This is Pura Vida at its finest.
